1. shows how a public figure born under that Sun sign expressed its energies.


As the Sun enters a new sign each month, simply review the chapter that covers that sign. During the month, reflect on how well you’re living up to the sign’s noblest qualities and any adjustments you might need to make. See how the public figure presented in that chapter approached life’s challenges and how your life could benefit from such an example.


You also can review your own Sun sign periodically to gain insights and inspiration. Reading about the Sun signs of others in your life can give you valuable guidance to help you interact with them peacefully and constructively.


Every chapter of Follow the Sun offers suggestions for balancing your life on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual planes. Besides giving you simple yet powerful tools to work more effectively with the energy of a particular Sun sign, these suggestions will help you align yourself with the seasons and nature’s cycles so you can bring yourself into balance.


Over time, as you follow the Sun’s journey through the zodiac each year, you will feel your life take on a more cyclical rhythm that will support your health and happiness on all levels.

“Anne Nordhaus-Bike conveys the essence of astrological belief by taking it one step further into the practicum of everyday life. Her analyses lay pathways for optimal living under one’s astrological sign and a unique interpretation of universal and spiritual truths demonstrated in the behaviors of well-known personalities.”
