• Day 3: The Suns Life Cycle

    The Sun moves through the chart approximately 1° per year so in its cycle really it’s determined by when it moves into a new sign and when it makes conjunctions to other planets or crosses over a major angle of the business charts or a cusp of the business house and or part. (* remember a house is made up of business parts)

    On one level the Sun is the essence of something. In business the essence is the authority of the business, the owner(s) the CEO and managing positions of the business and all things connected with the business in terms of its creative power. Determining the long term life cycle of this quality of the business will make all the difference in how well the business manages to become successful and how well the different parts of the business are managed in the long-term. Being the essence of the business the Sun represents the business vitality and spirit, and how well it matures, and in the end its reputation in how it’s looked upon in terms of its value to the community and how its creative values shine through in its products and through its brand.

    In the Suns long term life cycle for the business the main focus is in regards to the owners and founders, so the foundation chart plays a significant role in determining times of change and when the business may be taken to a new level and important decisions made about it. Once they are ascertained in the foundation chart, then there needs to be a recognition of those points above depicted in the registration chart and transcribed so that the business entity itself also encapsulates those qualities and they become part of its foundation where the business creativity and management ability is recognized as an authority and of loyalty and channelled into each part of it.
