Sun Aspects in Astrology

Since our birth charts reflect a certain moment within the solar system and the sun is at its center, it also stands for our own core, that part of us that everything else revolves around, our essence.

The sun serves as a spotlight in our charts, showing our need to feel special and important, be at the center of attention. It is connected to what we pride ourselves in and how we want to set ourselves apart.The urge of the sun is that of expressing itself and being seen and recognized.
Planets aspecting the sun describe what we want to be recognized for or what we pride ourselves in. They gain great importance since they are put in the spotlight.
That is also why things relating to planets in aspect to the sun can easily hurt our pride or ego - they are the things we want to be noticed and admired for.

The sun is that part of us that wants to realize itself as an individual - finding yourself, creating yourself, expressing yourself - and the planets in aspect to the sun show what helps or hinders us in this process.
Think of it as wanting to be special and your own distinct person, as if being the hero of the story or the protagonist of your own life.
The sun plays the leading star role, it takes center stage (literally).
However, depending on the aspects to the sun, some people may act like supporting roles in their own lives and, rather than craving attention, would rather hide. Some want to stand out while others would rather fit in. Some enjoy attention, others want to keep in the background.
So it has to do with how we feel about ourselves, how important and great we think we are and how talented we experience ourselves to be - the sun's aspects influence our sense of self worth and self image.

Since the sun is the source of light and warmth, it gives generously and does not take anything.
It is our life force, or source of energy, vitality, and confidence and planets in aspect to the sun can either obstruct this light and warmth to come forth or strengthen it and give it unique colors and hues.

"I want to exist from my own force, like the sun,
which gives light and does not suck light."
- Carl Jung

Venus Jupiter Aspects

Venus is that part of us that is pretty, nice, sweet and pleasant. When touched by Jupiter, these qualities will be exaggerated. You'd think that's great, considering the things Venus is associated with are mainly positive, but quite often, Jupiter can bring too much of a good thing, it's like an overkill. It may turn the sweet traits of Venus into something rather syrupy, cheesy and corny.  Jupiter can turn the good traits of a planet into ridiculous, annoying and unpleasant ones by exaggerating them too much.
So, rather than simply being super charming and sociable, what you'd expect of a strong Venus, Jupiter can give this planet a rather sleazy and greasy type of quality. Individuals with strong Venus Jupiter aspects may be over the top in their good manners and have too pronounced a polite, agreeable and sociable side.

Jimmy Fallon has a Venus Jupiter opposition. He is a really positive, upbeat, nice and sociable person but that's the thing that many people find so off-putting about him: he laughs too easily and too much, gives too many reactions when people talk and just overall seems TOO NICE. There's something idiotic and ridiculous about his sweetness.

So, although Jupiter is often seen as a great benefactor and known for bringing abundance and luck, the simplicity and humility of Saturn can actually be more pleasant than the ridiculous exaggerations of Jupiter.
