The sun is the center of the solar system, the place from which all life and warmth originate. From the dawn of humanity, it has been worshipped as the source of all things. It has represented the power of kings and dictators, and its luminous aspects have been associated with knowledge and consciousness. As a creator of life, it is related to the image of the mother and the influence of motherhood on an individual’s consciousness and ideals. As a result, the position of the sun in a birth chart always indicates the way in which an individual will relate to their goals and ideals, what their ambitions and aspirations might involve. A person whose chart is strongly “solar” usually identifies very positively with motherhood. Your personality is friendly, energetic, and creative, with high ideals and a firm determination to accomplish them. You take your own superiority and authority over others for granted, and you have a natural ability to command the attention and admiration of an audience. You are a born leader who enjoys being in the limelight and may behave somewhat theatrically or with dramatic exaggeration. You have definite artistic leanings. The sense of your ideals is evident to you and may lead you to be somewhat self-focused. If ill-directed, your deep aspirations may lead to such faults as egotism, selfishness, or greediness for power.
In traditional astrology, Jupiter has always been considered as the Great Benefactor, the planet of luck and success such as personal fortune, social prominence, professional prestige, high political position. The Jupiterian bounty is peerless! In psychological terms, this planet has a much vaster significance. As the biggest planet in the solar system, it does preside over the process of personal expansion, interpreted to be fitting into society better and finding an appropriate match between one’s individual ambitions and the aspirations of the group. This growth is accompanied by a feeling of self-confidence, which, in turn, buoys up an even greater externalization and expansion of the ego – hence the planet’s flattering reputation. But this snowball effect (Jupiter smiles and the world smiles with you), in which social skills magnify confidence and boldness reaps many rewards, betrays the negative side of Jupiter: extreme and excess. Although grandeur was the characteristic of the “king of the gods,” errors of judgment, poor taste, and sometimes selfishness and pride are also likely to be part of the Jupiterian package. It is important to note that the extension of the ego may be a form of escape; it is tempting to hide behind one’s popularity and social success, which are fairly easy to obtain, rather than be really demanding with oneself. The Jupiterian has a tendency to amplify qualities out of compensation, to avoid seeing weaknesses and flaws. As a result, you must be aware of the risk of over-identifying with your social mask, which would cause you to neglect your inner self and deep nature.
You walk through the park, admiring the fresh flowers in the gardens. You pass by a group of boys playing football and you can hear the laughter and shouting. You stop and watch for a while.
Alvin Leung, you should pay more attention to what you’re doing.
The North Node, the gateway into the tenth house, corresponds to the vertical line connecting the zenith to the nadir. The North Node can be opposed to its partner, the South Node, the lowest point on the map of the sky. As the highest point, it symbolizes your elevation, your social position. You are sure to derive some power from your social eminence, such as money, prestige, or privilege, but you also have duties to fulfill. When this area is the site of significant activity, it does not mean that you will automatically have a high social eminence. It means that you will invest a great deal of energy in acquiring a form of social power. Because the energy is somewhat vague, you will have to become aware of the various desires, needs, and ideals which are motivating and inspiring you. As a result, you will probably become conscious of how closely your social destiny is linked to your family’s reputation. Indeed, all you can give society is what you have managed to make of yourself from the raw material you received from your background. When the tenth house is especially significant, it means that the use of power deriving from social rank is problematic for you. Your attitude toward both accomplishment and failure may be somewhat obtuse. As a result, you should always be asking yourself why you aspire to a certain career or profession, what your learning is worth, what meaning you want to give your relationship with society, what you are ready to give of yourself, and what you want from society in exchange.
Alvin Leung, you should investigate the sixth house in your theme.
According to tradition, the sixth house is related to health and your relationship to your body. It is thus related to illness, hygiene, nutrition, and bodily care. More specifically, this area rules the various failures which you encounter and accumulate in the course of your evolution, which are sometimes expressed as physical disorders like aches and pains, digestive problems, etc. This area should thus be associated with the need faced by any individual to examine their ego, in order to consciously reorient and transform the behavior they have unconsciously adopted. Should you refuse this reorientation process or try to flee from it, physical discomfort or suffering may set in as a sort of signal – the proof that the impurities of your ego are obstructing the natural flow of your life.
The difficulty you face concerns your personal growth as a member of society. It shows that you are not yet ready to approach others appropriately, that you must tone down an inflated ego or beef up an insecure, weak ego. The importance of this area in your theme indicates that experiences related to work, duty, health care, self-transformation, and the continuous harvesting and re-planting of your energies and ego are fundamental and may have a major impact on your destiny. Traditionally, astrologers associated this house with humbly serving others. We interpret this to mean that a person who has not consciously begun the work of reorienting their personality may be doomed to remain the slave of thankless tasks, to toil at subordinate functions deprived of privilege.
Alvin Leung, you should pay attention to the second house in the sky because it contains several planets, including the one which rules your rising sign.
