Traditional Astrology For discussions on Traditional Astrology only. (Note: Typically, traditional astrology is defined as using techniques developed prior to 1700 by astrologers from the Hellenistic, Persian, Hebrew, and Renaissance eras. In general, it relies on Ptolemaic aspects (sextile, trine, square, opposition and conjunction) though there may be some exceptions, and always excludes modern planets (Neptune, Uranus and Pluto,) as well as any asteroids. The focus is less on what would be considered modern psychological chart interpretation and more on prediction. Members who wish to explore a combination of traditional and modern ideas should feel free to start a new thread in an appropriate forum for further discussion.)

Which planet represents the traditional father role/figure?

Which planet represents the traditional father role/figure? Saturn or Sun?

Saturn represents authority as a concept, work as a concept, suffering as a concept, poverty as a concept, failure as a concept, trials as a concept, insensitivity as a concept.

Sun represents the traditional king archetype/role/figure, playing as a concept, drama as a concept, games as a concept, children as a concept.

I cannot tell who represents the traditional father figure/role. We all know the moon (cancer) represents the traditional mother archetype/role/figure, seeing as cancer is the sign of nurturing, sensitivity, and home-life. Capricorn is the opposite sign of cancer, which heavily implies that it is the sign of the traditional father role/figure.

The sun does seem to relate to the traditional father figure archetype as it represents the king archetype, which relates to authority, but kings have authority over the masses or a great populous. Saturn represents authority as in the concept itself, which is very different.

Despite this, I have still been told by many that the sun = the father and saturn doesn't, does anyone know? Thanks
