Your Astrology Holy Trinity and Polarity

By Alison Price

This article will show you what next two steps to take after you know what is your Sun sign. A way to learn astrology.

If you believe your Sun sign is not enough then this is for you.


Sun Sign

Perhaps you already know your Sun sign. It could be Aries, Cancer or Virgo etc. Your Sun sign depends on the date of your birthday. It is the zodiac sign which the Sun was in at the time and day you were born. 

Everyone’s Sun sign is the easiest thing to know in astrology.

You will know your own, and your family’s birthdates, and probably your close friend’s birthdays as well. It is a simple step to ascertain everybody’s Sun sign.

The Sun sign is the first nugget of information that all people know about astrology but, after that, what should you learn next?

Ascendant Sign

The second thing you need to learn is your Ascendant sign. This is likely to be different to your Sun sign although it could be the identical.

You will only know your Ascendant sign if you cast your chart.

Moon Sign

The third fact you need to discover is your Moon sign. Again, you will have to cast your chart to find this out.

Your Moon sign is likely to be in a different sign both to your Sun sign and even to your Ascendant sign, but it could be the same.

Where to Get Your Birth Chart

If you do not yet have a copy of your birth chart, there are three pieces of information that you will need.

  • Your birth time
  • Your birth date
  • Your birth place (the city and country)

For quick information go here to calculate your chart.

Alternatively, if you want your full birth chart one page diagram calculated by me as a PDF go here.

The Holy Trinity

These three pieces of astrological information, your Ascendant sign, your Sun sign, and your Moon sign, are known as the holy trinity, the triad or the triumvirate of your chart.

They are always listed in this order of importance; Ascendant, Sun, Moon (and yes, your ascendant is more important than your Sun). 

If you are an aspiring astrologer, and if you attend an astrology conference, you will be given a badge with your name. There will be a space for you to write the three main parts of your chart listed on it, your Ascendant, your Sun, and your Moon.

For example, my top three or Holy Trinity would be listed as; Leo, Leo, Scorpio. This is because my Ascendant is in Leo, my Sun is in Leo, and my Moon is in Scorpio.

Your Ascendant, Sun, and Moon can each be in any one of the twelve zodiac signs.

Combinations

Let us have a quick look at the numbers.

The Ascendant has the possibility of being in any one of the twelve signs, the Sun has the possibility of being in any one of the twelve signs, and the Moon has the possibility of being in any one of the twelve signs.

Therefore, 12 × 12 × 12 = 1728 possible combinations of Ascendant, Sun, and Moon.

This detail is huge and speaks to the complexities that can be found within an astrology chart, but there is a simpler way.


Polarity

In astrology there are two polarities active and passive. They can also be referred to as masculine or feminine, or positive (+) or negative (-).

The twelve zodiac signs are either in one polarity or the other. 

The active signs are; Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius. The passive signs are; Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, and Pisces.

Let’s look at some examples of polarity. 

If you have your Ascendant in Aries, your Sun in Virgo and your Moon in Pisces your polarity converts to: active, passive, passive or (+, -, -).

If you have an Aquarius ascendant (+), your Sun is in Gemini (+), and your Moon is in Libra (+), you are active (+, +, +).

8 Combinations

In the scenario of active and passive signs, as regards to your chart’s holy trinity, there are only eight possible combinations.

The three are always listed in the sequence; Ascendant, Sun, Moon.

The ratio is always active:passive (+ : – ).

 + + +             3:0       100% active

 + + –              2:1       More active than passive.

 + – +             2:1       More active than passive.

 – + +              2:1       More active than passive.

 – – +                1:2       More passive than active.

 – + –                1:2       More passive than active.

 + – –                1:2       More passive than active.

  – – –                0:3       100% passive.

Some More Examples

Ascendant       Sun                  Moon  

Libra               Gemini            Pisces               + + – 

Aquarius         Sagittarius       Virgo               + + –

Leo                  Aries                Taurus            + + –

They are 216 possible combinations that are active, active, passive (+, +, -). But only eight possible combinations.

The use of polarity in the holy trinity of your chart is way to simplify what is a complex subject, astrology.

Spend some time analyzing your family’s and friends charts to see polarity at work.

Of course, there are many more interesting things about astrology charts that you could learn. 

Aspiring Astrologer Activity

I love providing you with aspiring astrologer activities.

This initiative is similar to “next steps” and the activities give you some ideas on what to do with the information you have just gathered.

Step one:         Your Sun sign.

Step two:         Your Ascendant sign.

Step three:       Your Moon sign.

Step four:        Write your polarity combination (Ascendant, Sun, Moon).

Step five:        Holy trinity polarity (only eight possible combinations), (?, ?, ?).

Job Seekers – Your Day in the Sun

 

by Alison Price

You could be toying with the idea of a career change. Perhaps you want to find a company that pays better, maybe you’re underemployed or between jobs and you could do with a little help to find a position.

When you start to look for a job you need all the help you can get. Use the Sun to assist you to find the good, better and best times to support your efforts in your job search and find your day in the Sun.


When to Start your Job Search

You may tell yourself you are looking for work because you are dispirited with what you are doing all day and so you could search a few job boards and in a half-hearted way look for work.

You could be forced into job search mode because you have no work for whatever reason. You need a paycheck because you have mouths to feed and need a roof over your head. You cannot stop your search until you have work. This is important and you start your job search.

There are a few instances when you can start a job search.

When you are between jobs

When you find yourself between jobs. This is a euphemism for being unemployed but we will use it here. You could be recently between jobs or discover that it can take months to find something else.

Anything else.

When you are underemployed

When you are underemployed and have a two day a week job but that’s it. In this example you may go in to work on Monday and Thursday and like what you do, but you could do more.

But the company you work for can’t help you with that, and you’re not sure if your want another two day a week job with someone else.

When you are employed

You may be in a job you love – but things can change at work.

  • Your boss may leave and you don’t like the new guy.
  • Your company could be taken over.
  • The top people may move onwards and upwards and this changes the corporate culture.
  • You hate your co-workers, they are crashing bores or tiresome.

Things can be fluid at home as well.

  • Marriage changes your priorities.
  • Divorce can make other demands on your finances
  • A new baby means you have to earn more.
  • Illness in the family could require more from you.
  • Your aging parents may move in with you, so your overheads go up.
  • Grown children eventually fly the coop, so maybe downsizing with less overheads is your option.

All of these things are a part of life and it is naïve to think that things will stay the same after life-changes happen.

 


The only thing that is constant is change


Bored to Death

But maybe you are just bored with your job.

Ask yourself:

  • If someone offers you enough money will you take the job, any job?
  • In what circumstances will you move jobs?
  • What is your number?

The answers to these questions can tip the balance between making an income and enjoying your job. Ideally you need to be in the sweet spot where you earn sufficient to meet your needs and you actually like what you do.

They say that you should follow your passion and this means you need to find work that is not work. I’ll explain.

Find the job that you love and would do anyway even if they didn’t pay you. You do this by discovering your passion.

Discover your Passion

One way to discover your passion is to look at what you do in your spare time.

  • What will you do on your next day off?
  • Are you volunteering?
  • What are your hobbies now?
  • Who do you talk to if you have a choice?
  • What activity will you get up early for?
  • What would you do even if they didn’t pay you?

This is just to underline that we all will move jobs for the right reasons and motivations.

What to Do

All of this brings us to the point that you should always be ready to take advantage of a new job.


ABC = Always be closing (a job offer)


You should always be prepared to seek a job at a moment’s notice.

This means:

  • Have your CV or resume up-to-date
  • Get LinkedIn leaning towards the job you want not the one you have
  • Butter-up your contacts
  • Plan your future
  • Assume a flexible stance

Follow the Sun

In a broad sense you can follow the Sun through the year as it passes through each sign.

The Sun highlights good times to do things and it depends on your own sign, (and in more detail your own chart), which times are highlighted.

It is easy for everyone to know which sign the Sun is in as it is about the same each year, If you are not sure you can check the handy Sun sign list below.

The Sun does not change sign at midnight so it could be the day before or the day after these dates.

  • January 1 – 19 – Capricorn.
  • January 20 to February 19 – Aquarius.
  • February 20 to March 21 – Pisces.
  • March 21 to April 19 – Aries.
  • April 20 to May 20 – Taurus.
  • May 21 to June 21 – Gemini.
  • June 22 to July 21 – Cancer.
  • July 21 to August 22 – Leo.
  • August 23 to September 22 – Virgo.
  • September 23 to October 23 – Libra.
  • October 24 to November 22 – Scorpio.
  • November 23 to December 21 – Sagittarius.
  • December 22 to December 31 – Capricorn.

Best Times in the year for Job Seekers

The best time each year to start a career search is from December 22nd to January 19th when the Sun is in Capricorn. This plays into the “New Year – new job” movement which surges at the start of every year as companies look for new people and recruiters post ads and you begin your search.

The second best period to begin to look for work is between August 23rd to September 22nd when the Sun is in Virgo. This is just after the back-to-school time and when people get itchy about making a change.

Note that I say around the 21st of the month but there is a variable of about two days each side of the date to account for the variation in the Sun’s movement. The Sun can change signs at any time in the day or a day or two either side of the 21st.

If you want to push for a pay increase do so when the Sun is in Taurus which is from April 20th to May 20th.

The best time to get a pay adjustment (less cash, more time off, go on flexitime, get benefits or stocks etc.) is between October 24th to November 22nd because this is the time the Sun is in Scorpio.

You can also pay attention to Mercury retrograde periods in the year as they relate to job seeking.


How to Manage your Time when Looking for Work

We have seen the best times to look for work in the year and these dates are supported by the Sun’s energy which shifts as it moves into each of the signs.

Now let’s see how to look for work on a daily basis and find the best times to do the many activities associated with looking for work, each day.

Daily activities can be done at good times in the day or not so good times.

These good or not so good times each day are determined by the placement of the Sun each hour and as it rises and sets.

When to Send a Cover Letter or Resume

You can spend hours and even days crafting a compelling cover letter and associated resume aimed at a particular job. How long this takes doesn’t matter. The important thing is the time when you send it and you no longer have control over it.

Email

The important time when you click “send” on your email system and not the time they open the email. Of course you may never know when they will open and read your email (or if it goes straight in the trash).

If you have email tracking on you will know when they opened it but you have no control over when they will do so.

Snail mail

If you are sending a snail mail cover letter or resume it is the time you pop the envelope into the mailbox. This is the point of no return as you can’t get the letter back.

Personal delivery

You may decide to print your cover letter and resume and go to the company to personally deliver the documents. In fact some companies prefer this method as it proves you are in the area and available. In this scenario it is the time you hand the envelope over to the receptionist or the HR person.

The best times to send, deliver or present a job seeking resume and cover letter each day are (in order of priority):

  • Between 10am and noon – the golden hours (best)
  • Between noon and 2pm – the silver hours (better)
  • Between sunset and two hours after sunset – the bronze hours (good)

That there are better times in the day for job seeking it follows that there are worse times as well. Some hours each day are not as good as others to have your message heard which is what you are trying to do in the first place.

You want recruiters and prospects to open and read your cover letters and resume. You don’t want your application to be ignored, put on the slush pile or to end up in the deleted bin.

Do not email, post or drop off job applications from:

  • Dawn to 9am
  • 2pm to sunset

When to Schedule a Phone Interview

A phone interview is the next step for contact with your recruiter or prospective employer.

Recruiters use the phone interview to weed out unsuitable candidates at an early stage. You could be cut at this point because you don’t have the conversational skills needed or maybe you don’t sound confident if they ask you job related questions – and they will.

If they are interested in you they may contact you to schedule a phone interview.

You will probably be given some time choices such as, Monday between 2pm and 5pm, or Friday from 9am to 11am. This is great because you can choose the best time to have a phone interview from the time slots available to you.

The best time to have a phone interview are:

As with all job applications the three golden times as listed above and repeated here.

  • Between 10am and noon (best)
  • Between noon and 2pm (better)
  • Between sunset and two hours after sunset (good)
  • Between midnight to 2am (good) – international calls

Do not schedule phone interviews from:

  • Dawn to 9am
  • 2pm to sunset

When to Schedule a Face-to-Face Interview

If you get through the phone interview they may call you in for a face-to-face interview. This is excellent.

You will probably be offered a few time options to have the face-to-face and you may be inclined to jump at the first one (for many reasons) but astrologically the good time slots still stand.

As with all job applications the three golden times as listed above and repeated here.

  • Between 10am and noon (best)
  • Between noon and 2pm (better)
  • Between sunset and 2 hours after sunset (good)

Do not schedule face-to-face interviews from:

  • Dawn to 9am (so no early morning or breakfast interviews)
  • 2pm to sunset

When to Accept a Job Offer

If you do receive a job offer it can come in two forms. A verbal offer that may lead to a written or online offer, or just a written or online offer.

If you want the job you could verbally say so but then you may still have to finalise the offer by signing a physical paper offer, or by electronically signing the offer.

The verbal offer may immediately go onto the electronic offer if for example you are in the interview and they offer you the job there and then and open the screen on which you can accept. Or you may accept a verbal offer (in person or on the phone) and then you have to go online to their website and accept the electronic offer.

There are two times possible for you to accept a job offer verbal and when you sign.

Some people will accept a verbal offer but then fail to accept the written offer for whatever reason. Maybe they got a better offer in the meantime of they decided they just don’t want the job.

The deal is only final at the signing (either written or electronic) and this cuts both ways for you and the employer.

The time that you sign is important.

As with all job applications the three golden times as listed above and repeated here that are best for accepting a job offer are:

  • Between 10am and noon (best)
  • Between noon and 2pm (better)
  • Between sunset and two hours after sunset (good)
  • Between midnight and 2pm is good for signing either paper or typically accepting electronic offers

Do not sign job acceptances from:

  • Dawn to 9am
  • 2pm to sunset

What to Do Every Day for your Job Search

Dawn to 9am: Don’t waste your time on job searches at this time of the day. Avoid breakfast meetings for work as they will go nowhere. The best you can hope for is getting snippets of background information on companies and people, or in other words gossip. Listen to the news and keep your own council. Stop talking. Spend this time in meditation, walk the dog or go to the gym.

9am to 10am: Connect online (LinkedIn, FB etc.) with “friends” and associates. Go to group Meetups or pop in at coffee and networking events.

10am to noon: The golden hours for job seeking every day. These two hours are excellent for everything career related.

Noon to 2pm: Keep pushing on your job search. Explore work outside your usual field. Look at opportunities further away from home both nationally and internationally.

2pm to 4pm: Seek endorsements from others – gently, don’t push it. Reciprocate with support for others through your endorsements or referrals for others. Unearth your back channels and the people in them. Offer to do little things for those who may help you later.

4pm to sunset: Don’t do job searching at this time or sign anything.

Sunset to two hours after sunset: This is a good time for employment activities. Have those after work (happy hour) get-togethers and butter up your contacts, but don’t stay too long.

Two hours after sunset to midnight: Let it go. Spend time with loved ones, have some leisure time and work on your hobbies or read non-career related books.

Midnight to 2am: So you can’t sleep? This can be a good time for international calls, reviewing employment contracts and signing electronic offers. But don’t do knee jerk acceptances. Consider any offers you received during the day before using this time slot for anything. Think it through.

2am to 4am: Go back to bed.

4am to Sunrise: If you are awake this early concentrate on yourself. This is your time. Attend to personal grooming, stretching and positive thinking. Stand tall and wide and assume a power pose feet wide and arms outstretched and head up and hold for five minutes. Prepare your clothes for the day. Write your gratitude journal or do the crossword to sharpen your mind.

Overall

We all look for work at sometime in our lives and on occasion it can take months to find anything.

You can get a slight edge on the competition by working with the light, heat and energy of the Sun as it passes through the zodiac over the course of a year and as it rises and sets each day.

You can’t look for work every waking minute so allow yourself times to push and times to release each day.

Gook luck.


 

Summertime and the Living is Easy – Sun in Leo

by Alison Price

Life Comes in Cycles 

One of the more obvious cycles is the seasonal changes you experience as the Sun moves through the zodiac when it enters a cardinal sign every three months.

This is the start of the four seasons.

The Zodiac Year

The year begins as the Sun enters the first sign of Aries and spring officially begins. Summer starts as the Sun enters Cancer around July 21st. Autumn is ushered in late September and winter draws in from December 21st at the Sun’s ingress to Capricorn.

Midsummer – Sun in Leo – What to expect



Here we are in the early degrees of Leo. It is just about mid-summer. But what can we expect?

That depends on whether you have a strong Leo presence in your chart from planets or your Ascendant or your Midheaven is placed in the sign.

Or, if you have a chart where there is no Leo influence at all and you have zero planets or angles in the sign of the Lion. 



If you do have a natal Leo influence

As the Sun moves through its own sign it will connect with any planets or chart points in Leo.



This will stimulate that planet or point and you will become aware of creative potentials as suggested by the strength of the contact,

Having Leo planets already in your natal chart will be reinforced as the Sun comes through. Things can become over-the-top but to express your individuality is key this month.

If you do not have a natal Leo influence

When the Sun transits Leo, and if you have no Leo signature in your chart, it becomes an opportunity for you to experience your inner child and express yourself in ways in which you would not normally.



Yes, at times it can get dramatic and loud but it can also be a lot of fun.

Summer is always good to kick back, relax and when you can be the star in your own life production.

It is a great time for a vacation or at least relaxing at home lying barefoot in a hammock. 

Everyone

Enjoy the simple pleasures of sunbathing, sun-downers (drinks at sunset) and sunbeams playing in your windows. Be kind to yourself. Soak it up and make the most of the Sun in Leo.

You can’t keep up a punishing work pace all year. Even the tireless practitioners amongst you need a break from your grueling schedule of clients, preparations, and research.

Don’t be too hard on yourself.

You can’t be going at full tilt all year.

Going forward into Virgo

Face September with renewed enthusiasm and bring your relaxed and refreshed self to your business and clients.

Your Quiet Month – Sun Transits Twelfth House or Less is More

by Alison Price

There are a few weeks when the Sun and the inner planets, Mercury and Venus, pass through and transit the twelfth house of your chart.

This is a time of the year to slow down, rest and take a pause from life. It is a period of about one month when:

  • your energy and drive becomes less prominent (the Sun),
  • your reading, thinking and conversation turns inward (Mercury) and
  • personal relationships, your social life and romance become less active (Venus).

In a way it is like having a dimmer switch on your life which reduces the glare and allows your eyes to adjust to the darker world where you can see what is lingering in the shadows that you have been ignoring up until now.

You will once again be back in the spotlight when the Sun crosses your ascendant and announces your personal New Year.

For you to be able to step onto the stage of life with vibrancy and confidence (which comes from the Sun) you are required to rest up, recuperate and chill as the planets move through the twelfth house of your natal chart.

Every year is different

Each one of you will have a different “quiet month” depending on which other planets are passing through your twelfth house at the same time.

It also changes tempo depending on whether the Sun leads the charge through your twelfth house or Mercury or Venus gets there first.

Born on the cusp? Don’t know your sign? I can help.

by Alison Price

Were you born on a cusp and want to know your Sun sign?

Read on…

Each year the Sun moves through twelve signs of the zodiac. As it changes signs it creates twelve cusp days each year.

A cusp day is one of the twelve days each year when the Sun changes sign from, say, Virgo to Libra or Taurus to Gemini. If your birthday falls on one of these cusp days you could be either sign.

Remember the Sun does not change sign neatly at midnight, it can enter a new sign at any time during the day. This is what makes it tricky. Thank goodness for astrologers!

So, are you a Virgo or a Libra? Or do you think you have a bit of both signs? I don’t  think so. You are either one or the other, not both.

How do you know which sign your Sun is in? Simple, ask me. Don’t live under the wrong sign one minute longer!

What you Do

In the email below write your name, time of birth, date of birth and place of birth.

I used to offer this as a free service but I have been inundated with requests from cusp people so now there is a token amount due of $1 before you email me.




What I Do

I will calculate your Sun’s position and tell you which sign you are.

Usually I do it straight away so you don’t have to wait, but if I’m having a nap I’ll do it as soon as I can.

I’m glad to help you.

How to Interpret a Retrograde Sun

by Alison Price

Everything you wanted to know about a retrograde Sun but were too afraid to ask

There really are only two responses to the title of this piece. Ok, maybe more than two, but the essence of each will be the same as they are just variations on a theme.

The first response is “I have to learn about this new feature in astrology” and the second reaction is “What’s she banging on about now?”


Part 1: If you don’t know about retrograde Suns

Read this part if you have a retrograde Sun in your chart, if it is in a member of your family’s nativity, it has cropped up in a friend’s horoscope or if you wish to learn how to interpret one.

  • Decide if it is a daytime or nighttime birth
  • Check for converse progressions
  • Realize that astrology has many confusing details
  • Calculate the chart with Regiomontanus house cusps
  • Book in for the class “Astronomy for Astrologers”
  • Make sure to discuss this interesting phenomena at you next astrology meeting

Part 2: If you do know all about retrograde Suns

Read this part if you know about retrograde Suns or if you have come across them before. Here are some thoughts on how to proceed.

  • A little knowledge is a dangerous thing
  • Choose your mentors wisely
  • Always be on the lookout for a sense of humor
  • Know that not all those reading this have your powers
  • Get behind the “All practitioners must get certified” regime
  • Go outside, stand in the Sun and smile

Remember everyone sees the world through the lens of their own chart. What one person sees is often different to how you view things.

Who is correct?

Sometimes it is not easy to tell.

Let astrology inspire you.

 


 

Sun Square Jupiter + Disposed by Mercury = Bragging Rights

The Sun makes a square aspect to Jupiter twice a year.

The Sun as the faster moving of the two planets and is applying a square to Jupiter until the exact aspect, which forms on September 7th from then on it, will be a separating square. The applying period is felt more than the separating time.

A square aspect is ninety degrees with an orb of eight degrees coming and going. As the Sun moves at almost one degree a day this particular aspect will be in effect for sixteen days or just over two weeks. This one is the opening square.

Mercury owns this square.

With the Sun in Virgo and Jupiter in Gemini Mercury who rules both signs disposes them both. It is always valuable to consider the dispositors of the planets in any aspect as they may indicate which planet is the stronger of the two. In this aspect Mercury is conjunct the Sun reinforcing the Virgo part of this square.

What to expect.

We can expect to see individual aggrandizement and larger than life stories like “The one that got away” whether it was a fish, a job or a date.

If you are giving a presentation this Sun square Jupiter will aid you as it supports honest promotion.

You may want to tell all now and if you do you may not consider how the consequences of the truth you have to say may impact on your life. Be aware that you may be called to justify yourself. Things may later be seen as blatant lies and exaggeration.

This square can indicate a time where personal expression is over the top and excessive ego is visible. Watch out for behaving in a boasting way or hogging the conversation as both planets are in Mercury ruled signs. In the cold light of the day you may wish you had had more tact.

It will be tempting to take on more than you can deliver. Accepting projects with unrealistic deadlines will likely come back to haunt you later.

You (Sun) will be judged (Jupiter) in the aftermath of this square. Make sure your personal bluster does not let you down.

Children may be especially boisterous now and will want to get outside to run it off.
