The circular shape alone is a symbol of the never ending circle of life. Placing a half moon and half sun inside the circle supplies even more meaning. The sun is often recognized as a symbol of rebirth, strength and power. The moon is associated with the female in many cultures often in the form of a goddess.
Polarity: The Sun and Moon
I’ve decided that a discussion of signs of the zodiac should begin with a thorough understanding of the Sun and Moon, because solar/lunar symbolism relates directly to male and female zodiacal signs. Modern astrologers have applied so much abstract symbolism to the Sun and Moon that we’ve forgotten to simply observe these two lights in horoscopes. We’ve forgotten to look at how the Sun and Moon behave in our skies.
India is very succinct in regard to the two lights. Sanskrit names for the Sun can be translated as fixidity, steadiness, firmness, and strength of purpose. In terms of astronomy, the Sun simply is. The Sun rises day after day regardless of weather conditions, the behavior of humanity or the placement of planets in the sky. It traverses its set path, always giving light and heat and asking nothing for itself in return.
And what of the Moon? In India the Moon is said to rule the senses and emotions. This is not so very different from the western view of the Moon. In India the Moon is said to be fickle and changeable. Emotions change and fluctuate as our thoughts and attitudes change. Emotions vary with the circumstances of our lives, and with the positive or negative ways we perceive other people as treating us.
Astronomically, the Moon we observe each night is cyclic. It waxes and wanes and finally disappears each month before it is reborn again. If it were not for the light of the Sun, we would not be able to see the Moon at all. This is why the principle of reflection belongs to the astrological Moon.
The Lights and Behavior
In the West we’ve confused solar/lunar meanings with discussions of archetypes and psychological traits which we believe are associated with the lights. This has led to the belief that the Moon is internal while the Sun is external. In reality the Moon is related to traditional feminine behavior, i.e. socializing, helpfulness, interest in relationships, liking the exchange of conversation and companionship. In short, the Moon looks outward from itself and finds inspiration and comfort with others.
The Sun is the ancient symbol for the soul. The soul lies deeply hidden beneath our daily restless thoughts and changing emotions. The Sun, therefore, represents a point of stillness, the center of the wheel so to speak. As such, the Sun relates more to the prototype of masculine behavior: satisfaction and a sense of self found in its own work, the enjoyment of personal creative endeavor, inner drive and concentration directed toward a concrete goal. Solar emphasis is on contacting the center within rather than on bringing in what is external to ourselves. In the negative sense, the Sun looks too much to itself without considering the needs and interests of others.
