Progressed Sun Conjunct the Natal Ascendant in Astrology

The Sun, whether it is the natal or progressed Sun, has to do with your vitality, your energy and your ability to recuperate. It also deals with the ego and governs the success one is able to attain in life and your ambitions. The Sun is also representative of the Father and other male authority figures prominent in your life.

The progressed Sun moves one degree per year and over a period of a lifetime will not move too far from its original position at birth. It will make semi-sextile to the natal Sun at 30, semi-square at 45 and sextile at 60 and for those lucky enough to live into their 90’s, they will experience the square at age 90. The Sun will, however, also make many aspects throughout your lifetime to other planetary placements in the Birth chart, including the Ascendant. In order for it to reach the Ascendant, the Natal Sun will need to be within 90 degrees of the Ascendant (11th -12th house) to make any connections to this very significant place.

The effects of the Progressed Sun on your Ascendant will cover over a three year period and the middle year is the most significant as this will be when it becomes direct or 0 degrees in separation to this placement. This conjunction can produce both negative and challenging conditions and can also suggest positive or reinforcing life conditions that will aid you in moving forward in life. This is partly due to the transits that will make contact to this placement over this period of time as well.

In a positive sense when this conjunction occurs, there are often potential opportunities for advancement in your profession. At times, people in authorative positions will aid you in achieving your goals and become motivating factors in your surge forward. In some cases, these opportunities come to the Father. In a woman’s chart, this is often a time of marriage or engagement and offers opportunities for meeting up with a suitable suitor, especially if the Vertex is involved or Venus and Jupiter.

The health is usually good when the conjunction has positive aspects from transits affecting it and whatever you are trying to achieve has greater chance of success.

If, however, this conjunction is receiving negative aspects from other planets in transit, especially outer planets, the chances for success are greatly diminished or you will have to work very hard in order to achieve the same level of success that the positive aspects would incur. Much of what transforms depends on the planet in question transiting the conjunction and its house placement as well as the house placement it has natally. You can also look to the house it rules in the Natal chart to get more information as to how events may unfold and what areas of life will be involved.

There may also be difficulties in the health of the individual although you would have to look at the overall condition of the Natal ascendant and Sun as well as any planets in the twelfth house, known as the house of ingrained health issues if poorly aspected.

When the progressed Sun advances towards the Ascendant, you may feel a draw to make changes to your life that would enhance your world. Some will make changes to their appearance while some become involved in exercise routines that enhance the body. Paying close attention to your well-being is always recommended and especially so when this conjunction is about to take hold in your life.
