This post is about astrology archetypes.
Each planet and sign are associated with a certain image, role, landscape, mythology and ancient cultures. They are also associated with life lessons. Information we get by analyzing these factors can serve us to empower our personality and discover what our Soul aspires to.
Planet that has the highest natal degree * (from 0-30) is key in this analysis. * Of all ten natal planets, the planet on highest degree will be the main carrier of the life lesson, compared to the planets in the lower degrees. Then we connect it with ascendant ruler, house position and sign. All this is taken into account in order to understand basic individual aspirations. This analysis does not aim to define who you are, but to offer you spiritual context of life.
Relationship with natal Sun
Sometimes Sun will be the main planet which is the carrier of the life lesson. When that is not the case, I have noticed that aspects of Sun and the main planet show how much we understand our life path. It will also show what energy is directed to and how we will integrate this life lesson. Sun is purpose, true nature and all the goals that help us bring more vitality and lead us to success. Healthy natal Sun does not ask for applause or approval and support from other people, because it already knows how much it is worth. It is intrinsic.
Sun energy is naturally triggered when we are true to ourselves and we live authentically. However, natal chart is circulating according to memory for most people. For them, same situations repeat in every transiting cycle and result in certain unpleasant life situations. If the same thing happened to you that happened in the previous transit cycle, it is a sign that you have chosen a wrong method to learn your life lesson. There is stagnation, not growth and that usually announces something unpleasant that will come in future.
When we talk about archetypes, we traditionally look at the first seven planets and their sign. In modern astrology, we also use natal Uranus, Neptune and Pluto when they are emphasized. These three planets will be especially important if they are in conjunction with ascendant, its ruler, Sun and Moon. Every archetype can be negatively and positively manifested.
How someone’s life lesson will be “learned” during life also depends on the house position of the planet. Planet will behave differently if it is below or above the horizon. If there is a particularly emphasized house, it will be the primary area of learning your life lesson. Sometimes the planet will manifest more, sometimes the sign, and sometimes the house. Everything is highly individual. No two life lessons are the same!
If there is a sign that is emphasized through stellium, it will certainly be a part of the life lesson. In some cases, these aspirations will be different from the Sun, which is the least important in the natal chart. In some cases when natal Sun is weakened, person does not have enough will to resist the environment, family or those who significantly influence him, not always in a way appropriate to his personality.
Conjunctions will certainly significantly change the meaning, as well as transits that will show the stages of learning. If the main planet is in close conjunction with other planets then there will be several different life roles that will allow learning of the life lesson. In some cases, this person will not be entirely sure which of these roles suits him best. These people search for themselves throughout their lives, more or less successfully.
If there are oppositions to the main planet, there will be an external/internal tendency not to learn a lesson. It also happens that some people do not even start learning their life lesson until before being on their deathbed. Learning your life lesson can be harder for them, especially in their youth. However, it is important that they find ways to discover their true individuality.
Transiting opposition will represent a time and period of great re-examinations and challenges that a person must go through in order to mature. When natal chart functions according to principle of imagination, there are difficulties with materialization of plans because this person is often energetically ungrounded. Then people blame circumstances and others for their failures. Life lesson will always be related to the materialization of something, but it is learned throughout life. It is never a goal or a product. It is YOU. You learn even with failure, not by giving up.
Final remarks before the analysis
My goal is to make you feel more connected to yourself through astrology, but that is not possible if there is still a problem in the relationship with a parent or an important person. Anybody who has serious health problems usually does not follow his life purpose. If you feel connected to yourself, and you have these problems, then that feeling is just an illusion.
Without optimism, energy and vitality, one cannot advance. He can’t even begin learning his life lesson. Success is lacking and strength is declining. This person does not shine and natal Sun is “weak”. Cosmic glow of the individual is always a sign that we are on the right path.
Finally, you need to think about what makes you successful. What qualities do you need to express more through creativity or work? For most people, work is what they invest the most time in and it should provide a sense of fulfillment. In that case, your job will support your life lesson. However, not for all people is work meaning of their life.
If there is a problem in your natal chart, it will be seen through other factors, because there must always be more indicators for issues. However, just when you solve these problems, whatever they are, you will find yourself on the path of learning your life lesson. They are there for a reason. And then a new era begins for you. Every natal chart has this hidden magic, you just need to know how to decipher it.
What is your life lesson can be interpreted in many ways and every astrologer has its own secret method. What should be remembered is that astrology is a means of thinking. Astrology does not serve to draw definite conclusions. But astrological knowledge will help us explore ourselves in order to see more honestly who we are and why something in our life is not going well, so that we can change and fix it. Life is given to be happy and to enjoy every day!
I will now take you through a basic analysis of your life lesson. Here I will give a brief idea of how we analyze this based on main planet and its sign.
