Sun in 6th House Synastry – How It Actually Affects Your Relationship Dynamics

Sun in 6th House Synastry

Did you know that synastry overlays are one of the first things to look at when doing a synastry analysis?

Sun in the 6th house synastry overlay will give us on overview of how our egos interact and how our partner’s creative expression plays out in our life; whether it inspires us or makes us feel belittled. And vice versa.

The Sun is our vital force, it is the main inner driver that gives us a reason to live on this earth, so it is a central part of the horoscope that shouldn’t be overlooked when examining the possible emotional and psychological dynamics of a relationship.

So, what does the Sun in 6th house synastry overlay imply about your relationship?

I will give you ALL possible versions of how this can play out in your life if you just keep reading.

Before I do that, however, I would like to remind you that synastry overlays are actually the SECOND step in compatibility analysis AFTER both charts have been examined separately.

Studying the separate horoscope of each partner is crucial, because this gives imperative insight into what each individual needs in a relationship. The separate horoscopes of both partners reveal hidden emotional patterns, which the individual may not even be aware of. The birth chart of each partner provides important information about how they approach a relationship, what type of relationship is most suitable for their personality and subconscious behavioral patterns, and whether they need to undergo considerable inner growth before they can mature for a long-term union.

Most importantly, the separate horoscope of each individual provides hidden trauma that may be sabotaging each and every relationship they form, which may in turn undermine this particular union if they are not consciously working on alleviating pain from the past.

The position of the Sun, Moon, Venus and Mars should be closely examined in each of the horoscopes, and so should the state of the 1st, 7th, 5th house and their rulers. It is especially critical to look at hard aspect between Moon, Venus, Mars and Saturn and Pluto. Challenging aspects with Saturn will give the individual an inborn inability to express love and would suggest a certain level of maturity before they can get married and create a family.

Difficult aspects with Pluto would suggest deep psychological trauma, an inherent tendency to manipulate and in the case of a Pluto-Mars square even a tendency for violence or attracting aggressive partners.

I have created two step-by-step beginner guides, which to a certain degree cover this very first crucial step of the compatibility analysis in the following articles, which I believe you should check out before you continue with synastry overlays:

In the birth chart, the Sun represents the center of our personality, just as the Sun is the center of the solar system.

The Sun’s position in the natal chart – by sign, house and aspects creates the fundamental basis of our character, on which all other influences from the other planets are superimposed. For this reason, when we compare the birth charts of two people, we first pay attention to the relative position of their Suns. Although the streams of influence between two people flow through different energy channels, connecting different points of their horoscopes, the Sun with its representation of the ego is one of the principal channels of interaction that needs to be examined.

In synastry analysis, when we do an overlay of two birth horoscopes, your partner’s Sun falls in one of the twelve houses of your horoscope. In each of these twelve positions, it sets a certain color for your relationship and shows an area of ​​your life where the other will have a strong influence.

The most important thing to remember about having someone’s Sun in your sixth house in Synastry is that it acts as a permanent transit to your sixth house!

This means that for as long as you are in this particular relationship, for as long as you communicate and exchange energies with this person, their Sun will be like a permanent transit in your sixth house.

Their Sun, with all it represents will be affecting your communication style, your way of thinking, and even the relationship with your siblings! If you have planets in your sixth house, their Sun will be further activating these planets, and the aspects they are making.

6th House in Synastry

Since the 6th house is the house of ‘service’, there is some real danger that someone else’s planets falling there can put us in a ‘boss-servant’ relationship with them.

This is especially true for the Sun, which is known to be the central figure of the horoscope and the source of one’s power.

The 6th house also relates to daily routines and duties that we usually ‘have to’ do, and is therefore not a very romantic area of our life, represented in our birth chart. Someone else’s planets in our 6th house can affect our daily routines, how we go about doing our work, or even the relationship we have with our colleagues.

On a more positive note, someone else’s positive influence in our 6th house can help us improve our health, our diet and our overall lifestyle.

The Psychology Behind Sun in 6th House Synastry

When one’s Sun falls in the sixth house of their partner’s horoscope, the Sun person may be in a position to offer the house person some kind of service.

The house person may rest assured that they can rely on the Sun person’s aid, although the latter may occasionally call upon the house person to return the compliment, especially as the Sun person is likely to value the house person’s services.

The Sun person’s wholehearted support may encourage the house person to make sure that he or she is functioning as efficiently as they possibly can. Otherwise the house person may find that the Sun person will be ready to suggest ways that will improve the house person’s system and make it more reliable.

In a doctor-patient relationship, this is a good house position for the doctor’s Sun, provided it is well aspected in the nativity and the cross-aspects to it do not clash unduly.

The Sun in 6th house synastry overlay is more likely to occur with casual relationships rather than in the case of long term friendships and the whole association may be somewhat transitory, depending upon what is convenient to both parties.

The relationship may arise through the necessity of the two concerned having to earn their living in the same establishment. It can signify an employer-employee relationship, in which the person whose Sun is involved will expect a worthwhile recompense for their services.

With the Sun in 6th house synastry overlay there is often no emotional involvement, though any reticence over this is unlikely to originate with the Sun.

Sun in 6th House Synastry – Further Interpretations

Sun in 6th House Synastry

The Sun in 6th house synastry overlay makes one person obey the other.

Not in a submissive, slave-like way, but in more of an organizational manner, like the relationship between a boss and an assistant.

One person feels obligated to submit to another in order to get some work done. Your relationship seems to revolve around completing a project or earning a living. Together you can be extremely productive.

Usually it is the Sun person, who tends to fall into a subordinate role in the Sun in 6th house synastry overlay. Whether you (the Sun) agree with this or not depends on your individual characteristics. (These roles can be swapped.)

The house person may feel obligated to manage parts of the relationship at the micro level, although they do enjoy the Sun’s help. (These roles can be swapped.)

Of course, the Sun in 6th house synastry overlay is best for a business relationship, but it can work in a marriage as well.

It’s a relationship in which you each do your share of household chores and your family runs so smoothly that it makes your neighbors jealous. What’s wrong with that?

The Sun in 6th house synastry overlay is just one of many factors that need to be considered when making a compatibility analysis, but I sincerely hope that this article did shed some light on the dynamics of your relationship.
