Episode 155. In this next series of episodes, we will explore transits, beginning with transits through the signs. Today we will cover Sun transits through the signs with brief descriptions on how each transit might impact the general public.

The Sun spends about 30 days in a sign. The Sun can indicate general themes and can give clues as to where you need to direct your energy. It can also impact how we express ourselves - or how we should.

Let’s go through each sign:

Aries - When the Sun is in Aries, the energy becomes passionate, intense, and impulsive. We’re all raring to go - and this may be the time get started on something new. Whether you’re blazing a trail, burning a bridge, or conquering the next big thing, you’ve got lots of firepower at your disposal. During this period, you can take bold risks. But you’ll need to look before you leap because sometimes this transit could find you landing in hot water if you don’t.

Taurus - When the Sun is in Taurus, the energy is grounded, earth, and chill. This is a time to move slowly towards your goals. Determination is abundant, giving you the ability to make steady progress. Security, money, and sensuality may be focal points during this transit. You can create safety while enjoying life’s pleasures. Watch out for stubbornness, which can derail relationships. Don’t be a stick in the mud!

Gemini - When the Sun is in Gemini, the energy is quick, witty, and curious. A thirst for knowledge may find you taking classes or reading lots of books. Current events may be of interest and your social life could become lively with lots of invites or short trips. You may also be more talkative and engaged in interesting conversations or debates. Watch out for a tendency to be flaky. Keep your head in your books and not the clouds.

Cancer - When the Sun is in Cancer, the energy becomes tender and sensitive. You may be “in your feelings” a lot - and so may other folks. This means relationships could get deeper - or more dramatic. Home, family, children, and security become important during this period. You may be interested in taking care of your house and the people you love. Intuition is keen but if emotions run too hot, you can lose your objectivity.

Leo - When the Sun is in Leo, it’s happy as can be. The Sun rules Leo, so it is at home here. This transit brings out a playful, courageous, and gregarious vibe. You may want more time for leisure. This is a flashy transit - which means the bigger the better. Grand declarations, bold outfits, and grabbing the mic is all the rage. Just be mindful you’re not hogging the spotlight.

Virgo - When the Sun is in Virgo, details matter. So does practicality. This is your best time to clean up your act and put things into divine order. Look at where you need to declutter your world - and get to work. If you take the time to organize your life now,  you’ll move through the year with less stress. The Sun in Virgo also shines a light on your habits. Are you getting enough exercise? How about sleep? What are you putting in your body? Check in and change the course if you’re heading in an unhealthy direction.

Libra - When the Sun is in Libra relationships are on the front burner. Strengthen your current partnerships - and be ready to welcome new people into your world. Look at how you can compromise. If you’re willing to be a good team player, you can go further much faster. Libra favors harmony - which means you’ll want to remain diplomatic. A bit of politeness goes a long way now. If you find yourself in the middle of a situation, take a step back and make sure you can remain objective. If you can’t, it’s better to stay out of it. Decision making can be hard at this time. Give yourself plenty of time to weigh the pros and cons. Lastly watch out for people pleasing and passive-aggressive behavior from yourself or others.

Scorpio - When the Sun is in Scorpio, intimacy is IN. How are you sharing your resources and secrets with others? Are you allowing others in or are you hoarding all the goodies for yourself? If you can let go, you can merge your assets - or your body. Scorpio wants depth - a half in half out approach won’t work. It’s all or nothing. Passions run hot, which adds intensity to this month. Scorpio is also associated with intuition - be sure to trust your instincts in all matters. Watch out for jealousy, brooding, and revenge, the shadow of this strong-willed sign!

Sagittarius - When the Sun is in Sagittarius, the vibe is jovial and adventurous. Now is the time to get out and about. Travel around the world if you can. If you can’t, look for other ways to broaden your horizons: take classes, read books, have conversations with wise elders. Above all, don’t be too fond of your own opinions. Open your mind and you may develop a whole new philosophy. This transit can also bring out foolish optimism and hypocrisy. Keep your feet on the ground and keep it real.

Capricorn - When the Sun is in Capricorn, you can get SO MUCH DONE. This is your cue to follow the rules, organize your to-dos, and get to work. If you are willing to do your work, you can go far. Ambitions are strong and it’s easier to see which rung to climb to reach the top of the ladder. The harder you work and the more focused you are, the bigger the prizes. Capricorn wants structures and systems - if you don’t have them, create them now. But do make sure you have time for play. All work and no play is never a good look on anyone.

Aquarius - When the Sun is in Aquarius, everyone feels restless. Change and innovation are IN. Rather than stick with the tried and true, this transit says “let’s do something no one else has ever done before.” Shake up your industry, set fashion trends, update your technology to the latest gear, and break a few rules. That being said, a rebel without a cause - let’s not do that. Instead, find a worthy cause to support. Friends are playing a big role in this month’s events. If it’s been a minute since you’ve had a coffee date with your pals, you can find the time.

Pisces - When the Sun is in Pisces you can connect with your feelings. What are your emotions trying to tell you about a given situation? Trust they are giving you the information that you need. Intuition is elevated and compassion is easier to find. You might feel like giving back or helping out folks in need. Give what you can but make sure you don’t lose your own shirt along the way. Pisces season is most excellent for artists and musicians. The muses are singing loudly - and creative inspiration is abundant. This transit can bring out flakiness or an unwillingness to face the facts. Be sure to ground and center yourself!
