How to Interpret Planets, Ex: Sun

The sun represents *self*. This, like anything, has positive and negative possible implications. Self could mean “selfish” or self could mean “self-realization.” By symbolizing “self” the sun symbolizes *both* polarities, the good and the bad. Determining which polarity comes out, and to what extent, in a giving individual’s birth chart depends on being able to see how positive or negative the Sun is in that chart – which results from a few factors, most important of which are house and sign placement, overall dignity, and the influences (by aspect and conjunction) that affect the sun.
