Progressed Sun aspects

Home » Astrology » Astrology to study » Progressions » Progressed Sun aspects


The progressed Sun is the position of the sun x day after birth for x year after birth. The new position of the sun creates new aspects (distances with a meaning) with Moon and planets in the natal and progressed chart. Those aspects of the progressed Sun create a new situation or state of mind. The nature of the aspect and the planet involved colors the meaning of the progressed aspect. For example:

JUPITER will usually let you grow, give you support, help you on the way or grant you successes
SATURN will usually make you aware of responsibilities, mistakes and restrictions (like coming from parents or law) and age, time to settle down, too
URANUS is the planet that wakes you up if you were sleeping or wake up the others to when you wanted them to be asleep. It is a planet that causes upheaval and changes, but sometimes it is just a surprise…
NEPTUNE is the planet of illusions and disillusions, isolation and seclusion (sometimes welcome with artists or mediums)
PLUTO is the planet of re- (revitalization, reformation, return) and stress sometimes. When Pluto is there life is more intense and stressy than ever. That is not always bad! Sometimes Pluto is reflecting a revival!

A progressed Sun conjunct Pluto marks a period of dramatic changes. It takes some courage to overcome problems. In the end you might be strong enough to start all over again or to come back. Sometimes circumstances force or encourage you to start a new kind of living.
