The Sun is a magic star that all cultures have worshiped since ancient times. Without it, plants would not grow, daylight would not exist, and we would live in an eternal dark night. For this reason, the Sun represents vitality, inner power, willpower, and light.
In psychological astrology, the Sun symbolizes the father, gives us energy, motivates us, and generates enthusiasm for living. It ignites our soul, so we must learn to understand our astrological Sun if we want to feel that we lead a life with meaning, purpose, and fulfillment.
In a natal chart, this star is the one that illuminates our personality since it is the central fireball of the solar system and shines with its own light. It also represents our uniqueness and what makes us shine in a particular and genuine way.
In Hawaiian culture, the Sun's role has been vital for its ability to grow crops on earth. Polynesian cultures associated the Sun’s power with leadership, brilliance, and the ability to create a fruitful community.
Apart from that, in Hawaiian culture the Sun means good energy, joy, and happiness. It symbolizes the great source of light that allows life, provides vital energy, heat, and helps all organisms grow and manifest. With its magnetic power, it also influences the orbit of the planets, giving them movement and direction.
