Sun opposed Midheaven

Any planet conjunct one of the four angles is significant, and when that planet is also the Sun, it is very significant indeed (refer to the "Strength" of this aspect in its header in your Fine Art Book for some perspective on its relative strength in your chart). You were born when the Sun was at the lowest point in the sky, the nadir. The nadir is astrological midnight, and symbolizes the roots of your being, the depth of your soul, your emotional foundations and underpinnings, your home and family as a child and as an adult, your nurturing parent and the effect she or he had on you, and the end of affairs and of life. And the Sun is your sense of purpose, your will, your drive for significance, and your consciousness. So you express your Sun's sign energy with your family and in your home, and your drive for significance and sense of purpose are centered on the very foundations of your emotional nature, perhaps through therapy, perhaps as a strong attachment to the past or your nurturing parent or heritage.

You tend to be a homebody, and other things being equal—which they rarely are—your family interests outweigh your career concerns. Your emotions and your past play a very important part in your life, and may conflict with your career. If there are hard aspects to other fourth or twelfth house planets, some of these issues from your past probably need to be made more conscious in order for you to become a whole person. In this case some form of therapy would be helpful. Your subconscious and its origins—your past, your emotional roots, your family and childhood—will be the arena in your life where you most shine your light and express your will and sense of purpose. And you will do this in a manner described by your Sun's sign. Like a great oak tree, this position of the Sun takes a long time to mature, and things tend to get better as they get sorted out later on in life.

Celebrities with a strong (fourth house, orb <4°) Sun conjunct nadir in their natal horoscopes are/were Neil Armstrong, Jane Austin, Anton Chekov, Phil Collins, Aleister Crowley, Lena Horne, JZ Knight, John Malkovich, Johnny Mathis, Yves Montand, Carl Sandburg, Lord Alfred Tennyson, Nikola Tesla and Thomas Tycho.

When the Sun is conjunct the nadir it can be in either the third or the fourth house. A third-house Sun within 3°-4° of the nadir is on the "dark side" of the fourth house and expresses itself through both the third and the fourth houses. When a third-house Sun is less than 3° from the nadir, it starts to express itself more through the fourth house than through the third; when it is less than about 1°-1½° from the nadir, a third-house Sun should be interpreted as being essentially in the fourth house. This dark side principle is true of all 10 planets on the dark side of all four angles.
