Billions of years ago there was darkness, then came the big bang and light, it was the time of the birth of our universe. As all that matter from big bang spread, it created millions of galaxies and billions of star systems. Our galaxy the milky way was created, in the outer spiral of its’ arm a star was born, it came to be known as our sun, and from a speck of a dust cloud, around our sun, our earth and rest of planets of our solar system formed. As the earth cooled over time, it formed an atmosphere. It took millions of years of cycles for water to run through the earth and as the temperature dropped life flourished, Soon we had a living breathing planet called earth. We humans are a part of those cycles. We come to this world from the unknown, where we had no sense of our existence, or conscience of our being alive. Our sun is at the center of our solar system, it is the giver of life and light. In astrology the sun is our core, our true being our light that needs to shine.
