Solar Alignments – The Sun in the Horoscope

“I can find in my undergraduate classes, bright students who do not know that the stars rise and set at night [& at day], or even that the Sun is a star.” ________Carl Sagan

Solar Alignments - The Sun in the Horoscope - Astrology Project Intensive

This especially requested Review Intensive continues a series about deepening knowledge with use in practical chart examples. It covers working with a very important astrological factor – The Sun. Unavoidably central, this major ‘Light’ is the par excellence symbol of awareness and activity, basic to many vital techniques usually ignored in modern times.

Within the tradition, every planet has a special relationship to the Sun according to its motions and appearances, as each celestial body may be conditioned in quality, strength, and effectiveness, according to how it ‘dances’ with the ‘king’. For astrology is always unceasing in action – this is why movement and radiance, rising, culminating and setting had meaning and were always keenly observed.

The focus is on ‘Light’ as an archetypal doctrine – underpinning a wealth of heritage methods. Information will be provided and utilised about familiar concepts such as planets ‘combust’, ‘under beams’, ‘cazimi’, and ‘retrograde’. We will also demystify more exotic ideas such as the Greek definitions of anatolikos and dutikos, which were as basic to individuating any celestial body as essential and accidental dignity.

Once again, this Review is perfect for anyone new to astrology or continuing to polish knowledge already gained. We anticipate another fascinating evening.

“The Sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent upon it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do.” ________Galileo Galilei
