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.

type of aspect:

A square is formed when planets are 90 degrees apart, creating a challenging angle that often results in tension and conflict. This aspect can force action through crisis or confrontation, pushing for resolution or change. While squares may indicate struggles or obstacles, they are also powerful motivators for growth and can help build resilience.


Sun square Venus is a compelling astrological aspect that challenges us to find balance between our core identity (Sun) and our desires, values, and relationships (Venus). This square creates a dynamic tension, highlighting areas in our life where what we want conflicts with who we are or are perceived to be. It may surface as friction in relationships, difficulties in making decisions that satisfy both personal and social needs, or a general feeling of dissatisfaction in areas related to love, money, or creativity. The essence of this transit is about recognizing and resolving conflicts between self-expression and harmony with others. The challenge lies in neither suppressing one's identity to please others nor disregarding others' needs in favor of selfish pursuits.

what to do

  • Reflect on areas where you feel torn between being true to yourself and maintaining harmony in relationships.

  • Use creative outlets to express your frustrations and desires.

  • Engage in open and honest discussions with loved ones about your needs and listen to theirs.

  • Reevaluate your values and check if they still resonate with your true self.

  • Practice self-compassion and allow yourself to explore new interests without judgment.

what to avoid

  • Making impulsive decisions in love or finances that might lead to regret.

  • Ignoring the feelings of others in your pursuit of personal goals.

  • Overcompensating by trying too hard to please others at your expense.

  • Neglecting self-care and personal boundaries.

  • Stewing in dissatisfaction without taking action to address underlying issues.

For a Sun square Venus transit, typical psychological issues might include:

  • Struggles with self-esteem: Balancing self-love with the desire for approval can lead to fluctuations in self-esteem.

  • Conflict between personal desires and relational harmony: The square can lead to internal conflicts where personal needs are at odds with relationship dynamics, causing stress or dissatisfaction.

  • Difficulty in making decisions that satisfy both personal and social needs: The challenge of pleasing oneself while maintaining social harmony can create psychological tension.


To navigate the challenges presented by Sun square Venus, consider the following step-by-step psychological guidance:

  1. Acknowledge and express feelings: Recognize the emotions that this transit brings up. Journaling or talking with a trusted friend can help in articulating these feelings.

  2. Evaluate personal values: Reflect on what truly matters to you. This transit is an opportunity to reassess and align your actions with your core values.

  3. Balance self-expression with empathy: Practice expressing your needs while also considering others' feelings. Role-playing or mindfulness can help in finding this balance.

  4. Seek harmony in relationships: Use this period to work on relationship dynamics. Couple's therapy or relationship workshops could be beneficial.

  5. Creative resolution: Engage in creative activities like painting, writing, or music to channel and balance your energies. This can also serve as a meditative practice to soothe internal conflicts.

  6. Assertiveness training: Learning to assert yourself in a balanced way can help manage the tension between personal desires and social expectations.



  • "I honor my desires as well as the needs of those I love."

  • "I am worthy of love and respect, both from myself and others."

  • "Every decision I make brings me closer to true harmony in my life."
