Sun and Moon

Together they are the most obvious influences Earth and with her we are living with. We only need to open the door or windows and we see and feel their powers. The Sun in a very direct way and the Moon a little more subtle but not less powerful. One more expressing, the other more "feeling", but it's the "feeling" that gives us further detail to what is obvious in the bright light of the day - remember, not everything that shines is necessarily  "true" - in the meaning of glamour for example is beautiful and that got it's own right but we still know, that it's a mask.... 


Yes, the Moon orbits Earth, so why did I not talk about the Moon on my Earth-page? - well, because the Sun can see both sides of the Moon's "faces", whereas Earth only sees one side.... 


scroll for "heliocentric" topics....

The Sun - Helio

The inner core and light - the lifeforce that wants to shine, radiate, express in it's full warm, creative and confident way... The Sun "IS", doesn't judge where the light shines, even if it's the darkest corner within us, we're even there touched by the warming light. 

Greek Mythology:

Helios was an ancient "Titan" (there were Gods/Goddesses before the Olympian times) and was driving his chariot from the east, rising and then in the west setting. The chariot is pulled by 4 horses. 

Some Facts:

 Its diameter is about 1.39 million km (864,000 miles), or 109 times that of Earth. The Sun formed about 4.6 billion years ago. Even so to us our Sun appears to be gigantic and is the most luminous star visible, in fact our sun is pretty small in comparison but young as well, so we don't need to worry it to go supernova anytime soon ;-)

The Sun's Halo 

Picture taken by me on 18th of June 2023 (new Moon day) "above" my home in Chiang Mai Thailand

It means, that the Sun stood roughly at the Galactic "Anti Center" in the constellation Orion.

Greek Mythology:

Selene (the Moon and sister of Helio)

She got a silver-chariot, which was pulled by 2 horses. It's believed that she was madly in love with a half Human (son of Zeus) but he had fallen for Hera and asked Zeus for eternal sleep.

The Moon - Luna

A very influential force that shows in our emotions.  It maybe with lots of ups and downs, similar as the Luna's influence to the ocean and the plants. A cycle that repeats and repeats... In Astrology the Moon represents our inner, emotional needs and wants. It's comfortable in the darkness of night, with her silver light to shine the way but keeping us "inside" during the New Moon, when we can't see in the night, when we need to reflect and get answers for our very own future....  

Some facts:

The Moon is thought to be of  about 4.51 billion years old. The Moon's average orbital distance is 384,402 km (238,856 mi), or 1.28 light-seconds. This is about thirty times the diameter of Earth. The Moon' s apparent size in the sky is almost the same as that of the Sun, since the star is about 400 times the lunar distance and diameter. Therefore, the Moon covers the Sun nearly precisely during a total solar eclipse. This matching of apparent visual size will not continue in the far future because the Moon's distance from Earth is gradually increasing.  (Ref. Wikipedia)

Sun - heliocentric - centered

We know, that in many cultures and ancient religions and societies the Sun was worshipped - cults around the Sun were simply everywhere.... 
In English spoken societies, we here now often the talk about the correlation of the words Sun and Son. - It doesn't work so obvious in other languages.

Yet - if we take the "philosophical" idea, it works everywhere. The idea that we All are "sons of god" in the sense of being a part of "everything" and the fractality of the Universe... 

Whatever we may believe in a religious or philosophical sense, we by now have agreed, that the Earth is round and orbits the Sun and not the other way round. 
The Sun at the center - yes, why not adapting this idea to Astrology as well!

Geocentric view, is the "mirror" of what we see when we're looking up at the heavens from here, in our physicality, with our eyes and whatever aids for enhancement. 
Philosophically or spiritually though, we can "jump over" the limits of our physicality and also look at the "other side of the Moon" and observe the full range of the planets orbiting our central star. 
We can "see" it, our parts in physicality and non physical - we can see, that we don't need to be entrapped in view that is angled, where things "disappear" or fall into Tartarus or hell or whatever... and same time "anchor" these insights into the physical realm as a new "basis of operation" so to speak...

When you go through my website, you'll find a lot of scientific researches of various fields, yet, I too am a "spiritual being" and bring my personal experiences in the "non physical plane" into these pages as well.
