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.

Pluto is the planet of transformation, power, and rebirth. Its influence is subtle but profound, bringing to light the deeper, darker forces at work in our lives. Pluto’s transits often involve intense emotional experiences, power struggles, or confrontations with our shadows. These transits are transformative, forcing us to confront and change fundamental aspects of our lives and selves.
