We carry our Sun sign with us throughout our entire lives. If I’m a Virgo, I’ll always be a Virgo. However, in secondary progressions, the Sun “progresses” in a symbolic sense through our natal Sun sign, and then beyond it to subsequent signs. Secondary progressions are “a day for a year”, and because the Sun moves just under one degree per day, our Sun symbolically progresses just short of one degree every year of our lives. Because there are 30 degrees for every sign, if I was born in the latter days of a Virgo Sun, my Sun would progress to the sign of Libra in my early childhood, and to the sign of Scorpio in my early to mid-30’s. If I was born near the beginning of a Virgo Sun (for example, around August 23rd), my progressed Sun would enter Libra close to my 30th birthday, and to Scorpio in my late 50’s.
What follows are interpretations for different positions of the Sun at birth in terms of when the progressed Sun changes signs.
If you were born:
|Born:||Critical Ages||Born:||Critical Ages|
|Mar 20 (Aries)||31 (Taurus);62 (Gemini)||Apr 04 (Aries)||16 (Taurus);47 (Gemini)|
|Mar 21 (Aries)||30 (Taurus);61 (Gemini)||Apr 05 (Aries)||15 (Taurus);46 (Gemini)|
|Mar 22 (Aries)||29 (Taurus);60 (Gemini)||Apr 06 (Aries)||14 (Taurus);45 (Gemini)|
|Mar 23 (Aries)||28 (Taurus);59 (Gemini)||Apr 07 (Aries)||13 (Taurus);44 (Gemini)|
|Mar 24 (Aries)||27 (Taurus);58 (Gemini)||Apr 08 (Aries)||12 (Taurus);43 (Gemini)|
|Mar 25 (Aries)||26 (Taurus);57 (Gemini)||Apr 09 (Aries)||11 (Taurus);42 (Gemini)|
|Mar 26 (Aries)||25 (Taurus);56 (Gemini)||Apr 10 (Aries)||10 (Taurus);41 (Gemini)|
|Mar 27 (Aries)||24 (Taurus);55 (Gemini)||Apr 11 (Aries)||9 (Taurus);40 (Gemini)|
|Mar 28 (Aries)||23 (Taurus);54 (Gemini)||Apr 12 (Aries)||8 (Taurus);39 (Gemini)|
|Mar 29 (Aries)||22 (Taurus);53 (Gemini)||Apr 13 (Aries)||7 (Taurus);38 (Gemini)|
|Mar 30 (Aries)||21 (Taurus);52 (Gemini)||Apr 14 (Aries)||6 (Taurus);37 (Gemini)|
|Mar 31 (Aries)||20 (Taurus);51 (Gemini)||Apr 15 (Aries)||5 (Taurus);36 (Gemini)|
|Apr 01 (Aries)||19 (Taurus);50 (Gemini)||Apr 16 (Aries)||4 (Taurus);35 (Gemini)|
|Apr 02 (Aries)||18 (Taurus);49 (Gemini)||Apr 17 (Aries)||3 (Taurus);34 (Gemini)|
|Apr 03 (Aries)||17 (Taurus);48 (Gemini)||Apr 18 (Aries)||2 (Taurus);33 (Gemini)|
|Apr 19 (Aries)||1 (Taurus);32 (Gemini)|
The table above is approximate. If you were born on April 10th, for example, your Sun sign is Aries, and your progressed Sun sign becomes Taurus at about the age of 10 years old, then Gemini at approximately 41 years old. This person experiences a critical time period at about the age of 9-11 years old, and then at about the age of 40-42 years old. This is due to the changing of signs of the progressed Sun.
At the very end of a sign (just before changing signs), individuals may make life-changing, impulsive decisions.
