Scientists have investigated the relationship between the Sun and human behavior for the last century. According to the latest findings, we see that solar and geomagnetic activity changes rapidly, and during the solar cycle, as the number of sunspots increases or decreases, the psychology, behavior, and creativity of people change and historical trends are affected.
The magnetic storms caused by the Sun interrupt communication and other sensitive electronic systems, both on Earth and in space. They also affect humans, because all our thoughts and attitudes are determined by the communication between billions of brain cells, which are more sensitive than any complicated electronic device.
Solar activity changes on a daily basis. The Earth is hit by electrons, protons, and other particles brought by the solar winds. This particle stream, which we call a solar storm, hits the Earth’s magnetosphere with a power depending on the density and speed of the magnetic plasma it carries. This causes some direct changes in the magnetic field, triggers changes in brainwaves and hormones, and consequently affects human behavior. During this magnetic polarity, a great energy is sometimes released that causes huge geophysical events, and, more importantly, this can affect human DNA and lead to evolutionary changes.
In addition to geomagnetic changes, anxiety and irritation increases during the solar winds. When solar activities increase, we also observe an increase in the number of accidents, diseases, murders, and other crimes. Aleksandr Leonidovich Tchijevsky, who was a Russian scientist, observed that the human nervous system was highly affected when the radiation emitted by the Sun and Earth was at its highest. Psychological disorders also peak. Some scientists, such as Dr. Robert Becker and Dr. Freedman, claim the changes in the sun cause an increase in psychopathic activity. During active geomagnetic storms, anxiety, depression, and suicidal tendencies increase. The changes in the geomagnetic activity of the sun also cause changes in blood pressure, reproduction, the immune system, and neurological disorders. Problems with the heart and circulatory system also increase. In astrology, the Sun is related to the heart and circulatory system, so it is reasonable that any disruption in the sun would affect the heart.
When solar activities are at their maximum, it is not only murders, terror attacks, accidents, and health problems that increase. Creativity in sciences and arts also improves during the solar maximum, and many developments are experienced in the evolutionary process. Research shows that human creativity peaks during the solar maximum. In astrology, the Sun represents creativity, but it also symbolizes enlightenment, consciousness, will, and awareness. Solar activities will certainly help us to reach high levels of consciousness and awareness, and we will benefit from the creative and beneficial energies. As a result, this period of high solar activity is a transition time and an opportunity to make a quantum jump in our consciousness. This is a period when we can get in touch with our higher being, when we can realize many things about the relationship between humanity and the cosmos, and when both our individual and collective awareness will increase. In astrology, the Sun stands for essence, integrity, and consciousness. Even if events prove to be harsh and stressful, we can overcome the difficulties through our will power and protect our integrity by being in touch with ourselves. Never forget that the planets and the Sun do not have will power, but we do. The challenging events we face test our will power, and the planets are the tools that trigger these tests. The ancient astrologers worked on the effects of the planets on people by defining their astrological meanings.
The Direct Effect of the Planets
Observations show that many sources outside of our planet affect human behavior. Some of these sources are solar radiation, solar particles, lunar radiation, and the planets’ effects on the geomagnetic field. The magnetism that exists within the cosmos affects the biological cycles in many living organisms, including humans. According to Michel Gougelin, the biological clocks of humans are directly related to the planets.
The planets with a vital role in the formation of solar activities increase the fluctuation of gases within the Sun, leading to sunspots and emissions. The radiation of the planets, which we feel through magnetic signals, affects the center of the Earth and the Sun, both directly and indirectly. Even when there is no solar activity, the positions of the planets also affect geomagnetic activity.
The electromagnetic radiation of the planets also affects the center of the Earth as well as the Sun. The planets, affecting both the center and the surface of the Sun, change the magnetic field of the Earth and affect biological life as a result, so they naturally have an effect on humans.
Planetary alignments, which can be considered to be combinations of electromagnetic forces, lead to an increase in solar activity. This disturbs geomagnetic activity, and humans are affected as a consequence, because humans also have magnetic fields that are related to the magnetic field of the Earth. Findings show we are not only within the magnetic field of the Earth, but we also have our own individual magnetic fields. Any change in the magnetic field of the Earth affects our own. These small fields tend to harmonize with the big one, but individual differences can shift the effect. Humans react differently towards the shifts in the magnetic field of the Earth. The reason for this can be seen in the natal charts.
The planets do not directly cause the events of our lives: Humans do that. The energy is formed by the aspects and combinations of the planets and stimulates the nervous systems of humans, who then act. Consequently, humans tend to react in a state of mind that fits the dominant electromagnetic stimulants. Of course, our reactions are not inevitable. Some of us react in a subjective and responsive manner, while others are more conscious and objective. Some sensitive people may be affected more and become hyperactive and aggressive. It is our choice to behave reasonably or unreasonably. The planetary positions in our natal chart have a crucial role in determining our choices and reactions.
Our natal charts show we have different bio-fields that can also be seen in Kirlian photographs. This explains why we respond differently towards certain planetary combinations. For many years, astrologers defined the different effects of the planets and categorized them. Using these, we can forecast which planets or combinations cause certain behavioral patterns and what types of events can be experienced. Our character is our destiny. The planetary combinations in our natal charts give us important hints about our tendencies while creating our own reality.
The people recognized there was a link between human behavior and the planetary positions. By examining the movements of the heavenly bodies, they realized there is a relationship between these movements and the moods of the people. The most prominent of these heavenly bodies is the moon.
We are surrounded by billions of stars, planets, and other celestial bodies that fill the magnificent design of the cosmos in a balanced way. Any change in this balance undoubtedly affects us. The most obvious effects in our solar system are based on the luminaries: The Sun and the Moon. An example of this is the tidal effect. The reason for the tidal effect is the ecliptic path of the Moon around the Earth and the Earth’s daily cycle of 24 hours. Through this mechanism, the Moon affects our daily lives. It also affects the biological clocks and the mental attitudes of all living organisms through a mysterious mechanism. The force of the Moon’s gravity on the Earth is 2.5 times more than the Sun’s, and for that reason alone it affects us that much more. Humans, animals, and plants change under the Moon’s light. Nothing stays the same in terms of thoughts and attitudes.
In astrology, the characteristics of individuals and the involuntary and emotional features of their spirits are determined by the position of the Moon and its aspects with the planets. The aspects of the Moon in the natal chart do not only express the emotional mood and needs of the individual, they also point out the daily shift of emotions and the development phase of events. When the Moon aligns with another planet, it increases the energy of that planet. This alignment significantly affects life on Earth. For example, when Saturn is close to the Earth and aligned with the Moon, we feel its repressive effect. When Jupiter is close to the Earth and aligned with the Moon, optimistic feelings become more dominant.
Many civilizations observed lunar phases and made their plans according to long-term weather predictions. Lunar phases help us understand weather conditions and their effects on life. Two phases of the Moon are most important: The new Moon and full Moon.
During full-Moon periods, the Earth’s magnetic field is filled with extra ionization and biological life is influenced more. As the number of positive ions entering is temporarily higher, humans and animals feel repressed. Some scientists say humans are bombarded by a wider spectrum of electromagnetic waves during full Moons. The Earth is negatively loaded normally, but during full Moons it is loaded with positive particles. This is because the Moon reflects the Sun’s energy to the Earth. As humans are also negatively loaded, they are influenced by this change and feel repressed.
Sensitive people are influenced more by full Moons. People who are restless may give exaggerated responses and make themselves and others uneasy. They may behave in a way they always wanted, and their attitudes become sharper. In some extreme cases, they may go mad. People who tend to be violent may give harsh responses. It is well known that suicides, accidents, and heart attacks increase during full moons. The word “lunatic” describes people who go crazy at those times, because psychotic behavior increases during full Moons.
At the full-Moon phase, the Moon is at the “magnetic tail” created by particles swirling around the Earth. The Moon reaches that point in four days, and this sometimes creates an imbalance in the Earth’s magnetic field. In the new-Moon phase, the Moon enters between the Sun and the Earth, and its physical body obstructs the particles coming from the Sun, and some geomagnetic disturbances are experienced. (Payne)
During full Moons, our creativity also peaks. It is the time to give birth to new things. Everything now becomes evident. Instead of acting alone, this period gives us the energy to act together. Consequently, full Moons allow us to integrate and exchange love instead of conflict and diversity. As I emphasized before, the Sun, the Moon, and the planets are the universal powers that emit electromagnetic waves. We respond to these energies in the light of our consciousness and awareness level.
Let’s summarize: The changes in the Sun and the magnetic field are related to the relative positions of the Sun, the Moon, and the planets. All these celestial elements, human psychology, awareness, approaches, and attitudes are affected by changes the celestial bodies cause in the geomagnetic field. Similarly, human consciousness and awareness influence the solar and geomagnetic activities. Our interaction with the universal powers is not unilateral. They affect us, and we affect them. Astrology helps us to perceive this bilateral interaction and its integrity. The ancient astrologers interpreted the celestial bodies and their positions in the sky as the symbols of human powers. Today’s astrology perceives these universal powers as the archetypes of the human psyche. The more we study the planets and the magnetism between the Sun and Earth, the more we learn about the human psyche. The more we learn about the activities of the Sun and its connections with the position of the planets, including the Earth, the more it will be possible to forecast human affairs accurately. As astrologer Bruce Scofield says in his article titled The Cycles of the Sun, “There is much to be learned about the Sun, life and magnetism which might someday turn out to be concrete evidence for the validity of astrology.”
The Interaction is Bilateral
All living organisms are linked with each other, and we communicate through biological and electromagnetic fields. Egyptian, Hopi, Indian, Mayan, Aztec, and Chinese civilizations all believed in being united and accepted that their collective attitudes could be affected by the Sun. The scientists also began to understand the nature of the fields that bind living organisms together. In later years, more evidence was found on the issue, and many people began to support this idea.
Studies by the HeartMath Institute proved the heart emits an electromagnetic field and influences its surroundings on an energy level. It is evident that we are influenced by each other’s moods, attitudes, and feelings. The studies also showed that if our hearts are in a harmonized state, we can easily synchronize and attain awareness on the energy field of our hearts.

Scientists began to build global magnetic-field detectors to record changes in the geomagnetic field and resonances in the ionosphere. They began to claim that if heart rhythms and brainwaves were on the same frequency as the Earth’s resonance, the collective consciousness could affect the Earth’s energy system. More people began to believe that prayers, meditations, and collective intents would help the rise of consciousness and bring positive results for the planet. The love that’s reflected on the planetary field would help the paradigm shift and transform the cumulated negative energy. The common understanding is that when human thoughts and feelings are synchronized, they can affect solar activities and geomagnetic fields.
Researchers claim that if a large enough number of people created a harmonized wave intentionally, this would join with the planetary energy and magnetic energy fields, and by influencing these fields, we could affect the collective consciousness positively. The American psychic Edgar Cayce said in one of his readings, “The Sun is formed of the same essence as us.” In terms of astrology, we are dealing with the relationship between the Sun and the planets and their influences on people’s lives and feelings. It is not surprising that we agree the vibrations of the spirit interact with the vibrations of the Sun and the planets. According to Cayce’s readings, the human spirit surrounds everything including our and other solar systems. Basically, the Sun influences us, and we have an influence on the Sun.
Cayce’s readings emphasize that humans are responsible for the events that cause solar storms and sunspots, and modern science is not yet aware of the relationship between the Sun and humanity. Disturbances on the Earth cause sunspots. The hostility, anger, and jealousy of humans reflect themselves as sunspots on the Sun according to Cayce. His readings remind us that we are responsible for everything on Earth. Cayce always repeated that we can overcome the astrological motives through will power.
If we can change our responses to the planetary alignments and the powerful energy streams from geomagnetic activities, then we can also overcome the challenges. Moreover, we can use this period as a milestone towards a global paradigm shift.
