The Sun

The Sun in astrological transits acts as a spotlight on our lives, illuminating our path, identity, and individuality. Its influence in transits is potent; it highlights areas needing growth and development or affirming our existing paths. When the Sun transits another planet in a natal chart, it activates the planet's energies, enhancing or challenging them depending on the nature of the aspect.

Mercury governs communication, thought processes, and the exchange of information. When transiting, Mercury affects how we think, communicate, and perceive the world around us. These transits can bring changes in our way of expressing ourselves, learning, and connecting with others.

type of aspect:

A sextile happens when planets are about 60 degrees apart, offering opportunities for growth and stimulation. This harmonious aspect encourages cooperation, opening doors to new possibilities and beneficial exchanges. Sextiles are generally considered gentle and supportive, providing a subtle but positive boost towards achieving goals.


Sun sextile Mercury bestows a period of mental clarity, enhanced communication, and a harmonious blend of your ego and intellect. This aspect creates a dynamic where the self (Sun) and the mind (Mercury) are in a productive and supportive dialogue. It's as if your inner king (Sun) and his most trusted advisor (Mercury) are in perfect agreement on the kingdom's affairs. This alignment fosters a conducive environment for planning, discussions, decision-making, and the dissemination of ideas. Your thoughts are clear, your speech becomes more persuasive, and your ability to absorb and process information is at its peak. It's an excellent time for negotiations, studying, teaching, and sharing knowledge. Creativity is also heightened, as the sextile sparks innovative ideas that seem to effortlessly align with your sense of purpose and identity.
