When the Sun transits through the houses and zodiac signs in astrology, it illuminates different areas of our lives with its radiant energy. In the natal chart, the Sun represents our core essence, vitality, and conscious ego. As it moves through the houses, it highlights specific themes and aspects of our identity and life path. When the Sun traverses the zodiac signs, it infuses each sign with its warmth and vitality, influencing our self-expression and overall sense of purpose.

Transiting through the houses, the Sun brings attention to matters related to self-expression, creativity, and leadership. Its presence in each house encourages us to shine a light on those areas of life, asserting our individuality and pursuing our passions with confidence. When transiting through the zodiac signs, the Sun's energy colors our experiences with the qualities of each sign, from the boldness of Aries to the nurturing nature of Cancer and the expressive flair of Leo. It invites us to embrace our unique identity and shine brightly in alignment with the characteristics of the sign it currently occupies.

The 8th House

When transiting planets move through the eighth house of the natal chart, there is a profound focus on transformation, rebirth, and deep psychological exploration. Individuals may experience intense emotional experiences, letting go of old patterns, or delving into their subconscious during this period. This transit often brings about endings and new beginnings, as well as opportunities for healing and personal growth through facing inner fears and shadows. It's a time for embracing change, embracing the unknown, and releasing what no longer serves one's highest good. Additionally, the eighth house governs shared resources, joint finances, and intimate connections, so transits through this house may also involve matters related to inheritance, investments, or deepening bonds with others on a soul level.

Keywords: Transformation, rebirth, intensity, healing, shared resources.
