Sun Sextile Neptune

In astrology, the Sun is always a representation of the origin of life because it gives light and warmth; thus this object is responsible for triggering and maintaining the natural cycles on our planet, which affect all living nature, including humans.

So, the Sun is important for the Universe, and for every human being that lives in this world.

In the astrology terms, this is the interesting aspect (the sextile one) That is keeping us going forward with everything that is around us in some balance.

This is such an important to know, the art of balance, and when this balance is in jeopardy, and then everything is in “danger”.

Here, the symbol of the Sun is connected to the planet Neptune that in astrology stands as the symbol of water (the ocean, waters in general) as the source of life on Earth, as it has the capacity to change its aggregate states under the influence of heat.

You can see what an interesting relations heat and water have, or fire and water, but it is clear that these two can work well together, as a complementary relationship that gives birth to many opportunities.

Of course, here, in the positive sextile position, these two planets (we are naming the Sun also the planet, for the easer understanding), are giving the best out of themselves, and the imagination is the word that we associate with it the most, as you will be able to see.

General Characteristics

Since the planet Neptune is connected in the natal charts with the imagination, dreams and creativity, and in the lives of those who have this aspect in their charts, there is no firm and the tangible boundary between the reality and fiction.

Of course, this can sound so great, and it could be, but it can go into the other extreme, and if it does, then many problems are on the horizon.

The sextile is an aspect that connects symbolisms of the same duality and enables them to help and support one another in their expression – this is true if the sextile in the natal chart is supported with other aspects.

Here we meet a planetary combination of fiery and watery example which, through their mutual cooperation, leads to the flow of natural energy that supports growth and development.

So, it usually gives much more than it takes away, and most of it could be seen in the realm of emotions and of course a creative work.

Some of the famous examples of this aspect are Billy Connolly, Gianni Versace, Mary Shelley, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Alicia Silverstone, Bashar al-Assad, Louis XV of France and Lee Iacocca.

Good Traits

Here we meet one tremendous energy since this sextile position that is formed between the Sun and Neptune is in motion that drives the entire living world on our planet since the Sun is in the center of this sextile, and the Neptune is the one that gives it the depth.

The symbolism of this aspect drives our imagination and creativity, and people who are blessed with this aspect have it an abundance of it.

Bad Traits

Because of creativity and imagination, these people sometimes lead somewhat foggy and fuzzy lives and are driven to “madness” because they want things around them to become clear and visible so that they could see what was hidden before.

It is true that this sextile provides them with the significant life insights, but they take some time before they reach to it, and that road has filled the burden that pressed them, making them lose hope and motivation for a better future.

They can become very depressive and have tremendous problems in all areas of life, and they can become vulnerable and unable to make any self-analysis that will help they understand better.

It is not hard to guess that they are attracted to scene and art in general, but one thing you need to know, outside the scene, these people can be withdrawn and do not like to be constantly in the spotlight.

They can seem a bit mysterious and unfathomable, though they are always essentially positive, cheerful, smiling.

There is something else that hides deep in their souls, and it is up to their lovers, of close friends to discover what lies beneath, and is there anything problematic. If there is, then they are the ones that will help them cure.

Love Matters

All of their creativity and love for the world as it is accompanied by feelings and thoughts, many questions possible that has a purpose make them understand what life and love are, and they can have a problem in discovering these answers.

In them, there is always something that is hidden, and no matter what was previously hidden in their subconscious, which certainly contains a lot of things hidden below the threshold of waking consciousness, after this kind of insight, they usually feel the need to turn their emotions in some kind of a creative act.

For them, love could seem just like a dream, and they want to live their lives as it, a beautiful dream that it will make their lives better, in a creative process.

So, they have the need to speak about it, show it off, or painting it, writing a story about it, turning it into a beautiful melody or giving it shape.

More than one occasion, people who have this aspect in their charts are very spiritualized because they necessitate exploring their own depths, which gives them numerous insights about themselves and the world around them, so they can be dedicated to spiritual work, become mystics, but also have a great understanding of the human psyche, so they are humanitarian work close.
