The sun is the primordial light, the source of all warmth and life. From the dawn of humanity, it has been worshipped. It has symbolized the absolute power kings and despots yearn for and emulate. It is the center of our solar system and the gravitational center of the travels of the earth and the other planets. 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 sun's position in a birth chart always indicates the way in which an individual will relate to your goals and ideals, what your ambitions and aspirations might involve.
You walk outside, looking up at the clear blue sky. The sun is shining, and the warmth on your skin is a welcomed contrast to the cold winter air. As you take a deep breath, you feel the energy of Mars beginning to stir.
You remember the last time you felt this alive and energized. It was during the battle against your declared enemy. You felt the power coursing through you, and you knew that you could achieve anything you set your mind to. There was a sense of purpose and destiny in the air, and you felt like you were on a mission. You fought with all your strength, and in the end you emerged victorious.
Now, as you walk outside, you can once again feel that same sense of purpose. You know that you can achieve anything you set your mind to, and that you have the power to fight for what's important to you. Mars is with you, and it is ready to help you achieve your goals.
According to Greek myth, Mercury (or Hermes, whose name derives etymologically from the piles of rocks which marked trails and guided travelers) was the messenger of the gods. He carried orders from Olympus to the mortals on Earth. The child of the illegitimate union of Zeus with Maia, Mercury was born “unknown to the immortal gods” and had to win his place among them by trickery, cleverness, and cunning. This is why he became the vagabond deity of travelers and wanderers. He is the instinctive foe of the settled who see him as an outcast roaming on the outskirts of society: a pariah, a thief, and a swindler. As ruler of the sign of Gemini, the Twins, he symbolizes the brotherâ€”the alter-ego who teaches us as much as we teach him and is associated with adolescence, a period of intense intellectual discovery. Mercury thus symbolizes lively, sparkling wit, mobility in any form, mental exchange, and interaction. As a result, a person strongly ruled by Mercury is quite likely to be clever and skillful. If Mercury is “afflicted” in one's chart, their intellectual velocity may sometimes become mere mental hyperactivity. In any case, these skills are a great resource in the social realm. You communicate easily and effectively, orally or in writing. Your ability to unite and transmit would be a good resource in diplomatic or commercial endeavors.
Bryce Love reads the astrology chart and notes the placement of the planets. “The eleventh house is an area of the sky which is especially important in your theme,” he says. “Because it contains several planets, including the one which rules your rising sign, it can provide you with a lot of positive energy and help you to achieve your goals.”
