Astrology Charts and Autumn Leaves

Desiree Roby AntilaThe Sun is the center of our universe and makes up over 99% of the mass in our solar system—which makes it have the largest effect on us astrologically. In my book Sun Signs in Love I state, “While it’s important to understand that there is more to you than just your sun sign, it is my wholehearted belief that the location of the sun at the moment of the first breath is the key to the true essence of who you are. The characteristics imprinted upon your personality when you drew your first breath were caused by the sun and planets in our solar system exercising their powerful influences through the zones of the zodiac. This magical process is what creates your personal sun sign and natal chart.” When we understand the energetic force that the sun not only has on our own natal chart but also as it transits through the twelve zodiac signs, it gifts us with the insight to harness the Sun’s energy to plan our months by tapping into the three modalities: cardinal, fixed, and mutable. While the Sun travels through each of these modalities four times throughout the calendar year, we can also plan our lives accordingly.

Cardinal Signs
When the Sun is in the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) we should initiate projects take things head-on and get things into motion. The cardinal signs kick off every season with either an equinox or solstice, starting our quarterly seasons. It is the perfect time to get things moving and you may even feel your energy spike.

Fixed Signs
When the Sun is in fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius), the production from your initiation starts to come to fruition. This is a great time to contain your energy and channel it into something specific and focused. Use these months to tangibly make your dreams into a reality. This is a time for working hard and getting things complete. During these four months of the year the seasons are in full swing. Staying focused and concentrated is the best way to make the most of these seasons.

Mutable Signs
The mutable signs are the grand finale of every season, and they are a time for change and adjustment. They bring social buzz and interest to our lives. This is a great time to get social and connect with your crew. Conversations are to be had and quality time is to be made. The mutable sign seasons are the most variable because they can easily flicker between work, play, and rest.

Being aware of modality in astrology is a great way to channel your energy, but also a fun way to connect nature to astrology. In Sun Signs in Love I state, “Modality is defined as a way in which something occurs, is experienced, or is communicated.” Therefore, when the Sun is vibrating its energy through the 3 modalities within the year, channel that energy to your advantage to create space for you to manifest your desires.
