The power of Natal Sun in Aquarius

Motto: how can I bring harmony, as an ideal as seen in Libra and Gemini, into concrete reality.

Superpower: ability to keep the faith, even in the hard times

Symbol:  two wavey lines, known as the water-bearer, yet the late and great Astrology Noel Tyl, who died on his 83rd birthday on 31.12.2019.

States the two lines represent the shape human ankles make when walking.  Noel tyle states that the purpose of Aquarius energy us to bring new, inventive, inspirational,  eccentric often time electric ideas into existence.

Path to the transcendence of karma:  reinventing the individual, accepting the visions of Uranus, which make you ahead of your time.

Developing into a true humanitarian by healing all wounds that you bury in your subconscious.

Then you can be a beacon of light, your family and friends; in fact, you can move the whole collective to tolerate each other’s differences.

Instead of rejecting each other,  creating wars and social unrest because of each person’s uniqueness and beliefs.

As noel Tyl says, the Aquarian vibration has the potential to have great respect for self and others.

Esoteric meaning:

Jupiter is the esoteric ruler of Aquarius, brings expansion to the abstract ideas, that are often given to those with an Aquarius sun, or strong, Aquarian energy in their natal charts.

Jupiter gives a spiritual undertone to the Aquarians ideas, hence why many astrologers view Aquarius as the true humanitarian.

The influence of Jupiter gives higher and collective meaning to aquarian energy, to answer not only how can I better myself, but how can I better my family, community or humanity at large.

Aquarians tend to know that the creative, intellectual, spiritual, religious and all knowledge should be shared. It belongs to no one but to all.

Aquarius energy remains detached in its highest expression, free form the constraints of emotions, as they know feelings and social conformity will lead you further from the truth.

Aquarius energy is here to set truth in motion, it does this by remaining somewhat aloof and detached from humans affairs.

It doesn’t mean they are not capable of experiencing intense emotions, aquarian energy just knows it best to not get lost in emotional or any other detrimental state of mind.

Not its not wrong to experience emotions, however letting them control your life often leads you going round in circles.

Body parts: joints, knees, muscles, bones, teeth. ( as Saturn is co-ruler of Aquarius, Aquarius/ Uranus also influences the body parts, Saturn governs and vice versa.

Colours, silver, black ( as can absorb all cultures ad facets of being a human being) electric blue,  and pink.

So what is it like to have your natal Sun in Aquarius

You are friendly, but you are private, Solar Aquarians see, time as energy and do not like to waste it, they are choosy about who they wish to be around,.

The general character of Aquarius is friendly, kind, aloof, and unpredictable, sympathetic, although yes, Aquarians will help anyone, especially those close to them.

They will do it in a detached way, without emotions,  often out of an underlying fear of emotions, which I will go into later.

Do get me wrong, the evolved aquarian who has learned to manage and is aware of all their personality traits are capable of genuine empathy, showing their emotional warmth but still remaining detached from events.

They know that getting lost in emotional states do very little to solve situations.

Aquarians will make great sacrifices to remain independent, even severing connections with friends, family, or anything else that gets in the way of their originality.

Although some with their natal Sun in Aquarius will choose to just limit the time they spend with anyone that gets in their way. Still, this tendency, to remain standoffish, is why certain people decide not to see friends or lovers with Aquarians.

Yes, solar Aquarians will and can help others in times of need, but typically the reasoning behind their sympathy is wanting to stop others from being irrational.

More time they don’t care about what others think of them, sun in Aquarius, in general, are not interested in the depths of the woes of the individual.

The focus is on the collective, they can lack empathy, but feign sympathy, and because of this, others can see them as impersonal and avoid them.

Yes, its good to be detached but not at the cost of genuine connection with others.

The fact that Aquarians love to be involved in a protest, activism, or charitable pursuits will seem odd to others, however, Aquarius sun does not let other’s opinions of them phase or deter them of their interest, in general.

On the surface, others are drawn to you as your ideals appear off beet, and this gives you a magnetic pull, yet those who are seeking genuine human connection can be put off by your lack of warmth and sweet nothings.

As yes, you have the talk, but at times you can not back it up with actions due to your erratic and eccentric nature.

Aspects to your Aquarius sun will alter this tendency to not care what others feel, such as aspects to your natal north node, sun, mars, venus involving cancer, Pisces, Scorpio, Gemini, Libra or Virgo.

One big negative of having a Natal, Aquarius Sun, or intense Aquarian energy in your natal chart is that you can fall into being an individual just for the sake of it.

Being different for the sake of it. Let me an example you may create a piece of art, poem or theory of being. Just to be viewed by others as different, but no real reason why you do things the way you do

Your search of originality can lead to moodiness or pseudoneess, i.e., pseudo art, astrology, academic pursuits, to try to meet your need to be seen by others as an individual.

On the one hand, yes, Aquarius suns can be focused on bettering the world for all of humanity, seeking reform, transformation, and justice for all.

But unless the personality is tempered, we must not forget Aquarius is a fixed sign, and yes, being firm in your convictions is good.

Although if you are not willing to change your mind, especially if the evidence is presented to you, which indicates your thoughts and behaviours are flawed or outdated.

As I said, those with their natal Sun in Aquarius or who have intense Aquarian energy in their birth chart are very forward-thinking in their thinking on the surface.

But internally, they can be very stubborn with their beliefs and opinions.

When you have your sun in Aquarius, you become at risk at remaining abstractly connected to your adverse and self-destructive traits, remaining aloof of their inability to change themselves.

Yet going around trying to change others and reform institutions.

The old adage of physician heal yourself first applies here; you must be willing to reform your own character, including beliefs, thoughts, and behaviours if you want to become an evolved and therefore stabilised Aquarius Sun.

Yes, its good to be an individual, yes you must cut off life force draining pursuits to become an authentic individual, yet they are ways of going around things….without alienating others and yourself.

As the song goes, check yourself before you wreck yourself, sometimes the advice others try to give you needs to be heeded so you can become a better and more productive individual.

Your humanitarian streak is admirable, but if you really want to transform society and others, start with your self first.

And yes, I know emotions freak you out, particularly your own, often they come out of nowhere, but more about that in a short while.

The Aquarius Intellect and Career

In general, Aquarius does not care what others think, above I have noted the pluses and minuses of this perspective, the biggest plus is that to be a visionary.

You do need to be able to make your own decisions, even when others who are used to the status quo give you millions of reasons why your new and innovative ideas will never come into fruition.

Yet, when an Aquarius sun falls into being a rebel, without a cause or even worse falling into the habit of going against tradition.

Just for the fun of it or to make a point, disaster will always come about.

Aquarius thinking is often logical, rational, scientific or intellectual, clear cut- clinical in execution, there are a vast imagination and intuition.

Yet the Aquarius puts his guts feelings down to a matter of fact occurrence, rather than fall for the airy-fairy spirituality many are fond of nowadays.

The Aquarius in love

You like to remain independent unless any other planetary placement and aspect in your chart change this.

You, other partners, tend to be the more paternal or maternal, so you must ensure compatibility between you and any partner you choose not to have kids or settle down with.

Understanding is need on both sides if your relationship is to stand the test of time, you don’t like feeling trapped.

So your partner will need to love you and let you go, this is how you return home each night;

otherwise, you will slowly drift from the relationship.

As I mentioned earlier, its good to be fixed in who you are,   but only if you allow yourself to be flexible to take on board good advice.

You are not always right, listen to what your partners, even what your family, friends and work colleagues are saying.


The aquarian parent

When you are a parent, this fact can make you feel trapped,  let your children know you love and care for them.

Kids need that, also explain and be truthful to them about why you re the way you are, kids love that too, they will endear to you more.

Giving you your space, knowing you will provide them with your time when you can.

You prefer your children to be independent, yet you will impart on them your intellectual philosophical or intellectual knowledge. Or at least point them in the right direction to the tools they need to advance their rationality.

Let your children are kids, yes it’s good to be wise and in some respects, become older in your thinking at a ripe age. But you can still and should still have fun, entertainment should be limited but never excluded.

All things in life, even parts of our shadow need to be equally expressed in living a balanced life, sometimes you like to quiz your children about their thinking.


The shadow of the natal Sun in Aquarius

The dark side, as mentioned, a severely adverse Natal Sun in Aquarius, can create an individual that wants to take gifts from the world rather than give tips to the world as noel tyle states.

The dark aquarian can not be only self-destructive but seek to destroy the goodness in others as a result of their own fall from grace, and because of their lack of forgiveness for themselves.

Can create cults or use religious practices in debase ways, the sense of having to help the collective can be hard to bear.

So the aquarian can turn to substance abuse, and this is when the aquarian shadow ego is enlarged to create ulterior motives in all actions.

This can also be the position of the corrupt politician or business leader, sometimes the potent energy which is present in aquarian vibrations.
