What Is Astrology?
“Astrology is the study of man’s response to planetary stimuli. The stars have no conscious benevolence or animosity; they merely send forth positive and negative radiations. Of themselves, these do not help or harm humanity, but offer a lawful channel for the outward operation of cause-effect equilibriums which each man has set into motion in the past. A child is born on that day and at that hour when the celestial rays are in mathematical harmony with his individual karma. His horoscope is a challenging portrait, revealing his unalterable past and its probable future results. But the natal chart can be rightly interpreted only by men of intuitive wisdom: these are few.”
— Swami Sri Yukteswar Giri from Autobiography of a Yogi by Parahansa Yogananda
Sun Sign In The Meaning of the Sun Sign in Astrology
Your sun sign describes your basic nature and the personality traits that remain constant through the ups and downs of life. It is the image you shine out to the world, but it comes from that truest, innermost part of you and downs of life. The sun, which is actually a star, is at the center of the Solar System, and likewise, your sun sign describes your unique personal center.
