Identify Your Authentic Self’s Gifts and Talents With Astrology

Astrology can help you identify the gifts and talents of your Authentic Self. Your pure essence shines through your Sun sign.

In astrology, your Sun sign represents your life force, personal identity, and sense of self. It’s how you project yourself, and radiates your confidence, creativity, and physical vitality. You can think of it as an astrological representation of your healed ego potential and your conscious mind. It is the leading actor in your birthchart.

As a result, the Sun sign is a powerful indicator of your Authentic Self and the unique gifts, talents, qualities, skills, and abilities that naturally emanate from you. This information becomes much more detailed, nuanced, and specific when the rest of your birthchart is considered holistically. However for the purpose of this article, we will simply explore the Sun sign.

If you know your Sun sign, you can go to the appropriate section below. Take what resonates and leave the rest. I’ve also included the approximate birthday ranges for each sign. If your birthday is on the cusp of a sign, you may want to read about both signs, and take what resonates.

You can also use this information to spark insights about your clients and students if you have access to their birthdays. This can help you support them in discovering and expressing their gifts and talents too.

Thankfully, Reiki naturally reveals to us and through us the gifts and talents of our Authentic Self. We are each beautifully unique individuals, and Reiki encourages us to shine in the ways that light up our soul and ignite our Spirit, enabling us to be of service on Earth.
