Occasionally, people ask me why they don’t relate to their sun sign. There a few explanations.
First, people have their own minds, myself included. They sometimes adjust astrology to suit their needs and preferences. For example a Leo who would rather be a Scorpio so they’ll see their Sun in the 8th house and proclaim themselves to be “really a Scorpio”.
I believe the Sun in Leo is A SUN IN LEO.
The 8th house is an area of experience.
The Sun in Leo will shine brightly, illuminating the area, regardless of which area we’re talking about. If you put the sun in the 8th house (Scorpio’s house) it will illuminate the darkness of that house.
This could be a person working with the dying in a hospice, for example. But they would still be a LEO. They would still be dramatic and childlike. They may be a shiny object in a load of crap, but they’re still shining! A Leo sun is still a Leo sun. It will never, ever, ever, ever be a Scorpio Sun.
Less commonly, this can happen when the sun is heavily aspected, especially by outer planets. It can also happen when a person has a large stellium in another sign.
I think you do yourself a great disservice to deny your Sun, which is your vital life energy. It’s like saying that the heart in your body is not your real heart, but some other heart. Once you do that, you’re lost.
Do you feel divorced from your sun sign?
