I’ll Follow the Sun: Using Solar Cycles for Greater Happiness

How did you find your way to astrology? Most likely, you followed the Sun. The characteristics of our Sun Signs offered most of us our toehold onto astrology’s rich and varied path.

In this lecture, we’ll explore how the transiting Sun’s daily and annual pilgrimages through your chart regulates the tempo of your days and years as reassuringly as the seasons themselves. We’ll also look at some examples of how the Progressed Sun’s much less frequent entry into a new sign or house can signal truly life-changing transitions.
