While we often spend our time focusing on the various moon phases, and how it’s ever-changing nature is moving through the zodiac signs, we fail to consider the progression of the sun. Your zodiac sign is named after the zodiac position the sun was at during the time of your birth. As this takes a full calendar year to be completed, we are able to easily assess where the sun was at any given time. This doesn’t just apply to your birth date, but also each subsequent year. This also has an impact on the energies in your life.
For example, if you were born on April 26th, the sun was in Taurus at the time of your birth. This is the main foundation for your personality as far as astrologists are concerned. However, as I am writing this the sun is currently in Aries. Regardless of which sign you were born during, the sun in Aries will still have an impact on your life at its current stage.
The sun is the central point and all others move in relation to it. This position of central importance corresponds with the position that it holds in terms of energy. This is the building block upon which all other influences stand, one that should not be diminished or overlooked! The sun can influence your ability to lead, your personality, metabolism, a strength of will, confidence and motivation.
How will the sun impact your life in the coming months according to our zodiac sign?
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Determined and focused, those born under the sign of Aries are usually dynamite forces to be reckoned with in the area of their career. With the sun in Aries, you have been dominating during this time, however, you need to prepare yourself for the shifts to come. As the sun shifts into Taurus, you need to keep your focus on the stability and loyalty in your career. If you have been slacking off on the fundamental tasks, such as administrative work, you need to get back to it now. Lay a solid foundation before you then move into the fun-loving influence of Gemini.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Stubborn, determined and hard-working, with the sun moving into Taurus, this is your time to shine. Take this energy and run with it, propelling you forward towards all of your biggest goals and dreams. Regardless of how crazy and overambitious these plans may seem, don’t discount the incredible power that this time will provide you. If you know that your goals will involve others, look forward to the movement of the sun into Gemini at the end of May and prepare for the optimistic and social energy that it will bring.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Upbeat, positive and loving human interaction over all else, you are enjoying the spontaneous nature that is widely associated with Aries. It is important to note, however, that as you move into Taurus this will be wildly toned down. There is nothing more important to you than the relationships that you have built in your life, and Taurus will shine a light on their foundation. Take note of any weaknesses and inconsistencies, using this time to build them up. Ultimately, this will increase their chances of lasting long-term.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Your life is guided primarily by your emotional state, and this is where you will feel the influence of the sun most as it shifts from one sign to the next. During the time that the sign is in Aries, others may find that you are slightly irritable, easily frustrated or angered over the smallest of things. Try to keep yourself centered to avoid unnecessary arguments. As the sun moves into the sign of Taurus then you will feel relief as you become incredibly ground, providing you with the opportunity to assess what you are feeling and whether you should be allowing these emotions to influence you in this way.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Bold and confident, you likely believe that you are 100% in control of your life, but don’t discount the incredible power that the energy of the sun can have on your life. Throughout the time that the sun is in Aries, it will feed this power and confidence, propelling your forward and creating the impression that there is nothing that you can’t do. Be cautious, however, as this confidence may not be completely founded in your actual skillset. When the sun shifts into Taurus, you will feel the grounding power that this stable sign carries. This will empower you to take the necessary step back, reassessing your capabilities, strengths, and weaknesses, determining what will move you forward, and what you need to focus on overcoming.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You view the world through an incredibly practical and logical point of view, however, this will be called into question during the time that the sun is in Aries. The spontaneous and unpredictable energy during this time may cause you to make decisions without fully thinking them through first, causing you to second guess your choices as soon as they have been made. Try to avoid any major decisions during this time, holding off until the sun shifts into Taurus, bringing with it the stable and secure energy that only Taurus can provide. Don’t, however, allow yourself to get to get too serious during the time of Taurus, there is still more to life.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You have worked incredibly hard as of late to build upon your career goals, determined to move forward will still maintaining the balance, fairness, and harmony that you value in life. The power and confidence of Aries will help to provide you with the drive that you need to take that next big step. Don’t fight this, allow yourself to go with it, as it will empower you long-term. Get this started before the sun shifts into Taurus, at which time the energy will also shift into one that will help to build upon anything that you have already started. The two combined will lead you to great success if you simply embrace them and leverage them strategically.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
The heightened emotions that come with the unpredictable energy of Aries will combine with your incredible passion, and this will turn you into a ticking time bomb. Try to step back from any situation that frustrates you before it pushes you over the edge. If there is an area of your life that is causing you frustration, take a much-needed step back. If it is possible to put it off until after April 20th, when the sun shifts into Taurus, this will allow you to reach a decision without the fiery influence of Aries heightening your already intense passion, and the fact that you are slow to trust anyone that comes into your life.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You live for adventure, always seeking the next new experience and thriving off the adrenaline rush that this provides. While there is nothing fundamentally wrong with approaching life in this way, if it is allowed to get out of hand it may cost you in the end. It is important to remember that there is a time and place for everything, focusing on the fundamentals of the life you are trying to build, and keeping the adventure for when it fits into your life. During Aries, the spontaneous energy may encourage you to toss all responsibility to the wind, and it is up to you to keep yourself focused. It won’t be easy, but if you keep your eyes fixed on the future, the shift of the sun into Taurus will finally provide you with the grounded energy that you need so badly.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You are the most responsible of the signs, putting your traditions and values ahead of all else. While you prefer to avoid confrontation, should someone challenge these values, you can be pushed over the edge. During the time that the sun is in Aries, be warned that you may view mere curiosity or interest as an attack. Try to step back and reassess the situation before jumping into defensive mode. When the sun shifts into Taurus, this is an incredibly powerful time for you. Your discipline combined with the stability of Taurus will allow you to achieve great things.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Independent and quirky, you don’t fit into anyone else’s world, nor do you care to try. During the time that the sun is in Aries, the fiery and spirited nature will empower you to fight for some of the causes that you deem to be most important in your life. If you have a charity or organization in mind, this is a great time to make a significant difference. Follow your heart and you will be massively inspired. Hold onto this inspiration as the sun shifts into Taurus, and the stability, drive, and tenacity that will come will help you to make your vision into a reality. Try to complete all that needs to be done to create a solid foundation before the influence of Gemini, at which time you will be ready to socialize with potential donors and sponsors.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Living with your head in the clouds, you are often seen as flighty due to the fact that you struggle to remember how your commitments will play out in the real world. This is going to be an even greater problem with the sun in Aries, as its spontaneous energy will inspire you to jump into things without thinking first. Leverage the grounding energy when the sun shifts into Taurus to organize your life and find your footing in reality. You need this solid dose of stability in your life in order to determine what you can realistically accomplish.
