The sun is the center of our solar-system and the life-giving force for each and every living being on this planet. It provides us with light and warmth, without which nothing could live or grow. All cultures throughout time have worshiped the Sun as the most important male deity and life-giving force of our universe.
Astrologically, the Sun represents the self or individuality. It is seen as the divine spark within - the vitality and life force, the source of power and creativity. The sun denotes an individual's sense of self-worth and confidence. It represents higher consciousness, cosmic awareness, and the ability to recognize higher truth, which is a way of 'seeing' with the heart (In my heart I know this to be true…). The sun's seat in the body is the solar plexus and the heart.
