What's your sign?
Do you have The Sun in Libra? If you were born between September 22 and October 22, you likely have a Libra Sun in your horoscope -- your Natal Chart. But, the beginning and end dates can be a little ragged because the celestial schedule and human calendars don't always synch.
If you're one of those special souls born near a sign change ... "on the cusp", you'll need a real astrologer ... or an internet computer program ... to cast your chart and say for sure.
Your Sun Sign is the one you name when someone asks ... "What's your sign?" Everyone has one Sun sign ... even those complex souls born on the cusp. But, if you were born on a day when the Sun changed signs, people born early ... before the sign change ... will be one sign. People born later ... after the sign change ... will be the other.
It's nice to know for sure ...
Does this matter? Well, yes ... and no. It's nice to know which sign you are for sure. But the complexities of cusp-born people is a discussion all by itself, and in real life, the subtleties of personalities born on either side of a sign change will be very discreet.
If you're a Virgo born on the day the Sun moved into Libra, your character will be a little more fussy and fastidious than your born-later Libra star siblings. But they will still show a lot of Virgo qualities in their make-up, and you will show a lot of Libra in yours.
The same, of course, holds at the other end of the sign. If you're a Scorpio born on a day that began with the Sun in Libra, there's a bit of mystery about you ... and a slightly more willful streak in your character than your earlier-born Libra kin. But you still have a lot in common.
You have plenty of Libra diplomacy in your make-up ... and they have a touch of Scorpio's notorious passion in theirs. The difference is mostly a technical one ... a matter of very tiny degrees.
Other considerations ...
Astrology, like life, operates on a continuum. There may be dividing lines for the sake of distinction and organization. Cusp divisions are like this. But there are still many shades of gray. And in the borderlands betwixt and between, there's plenty of overlap.
Still, your Sun's position, because it's fairly predictable, is the easiest celestial position to track, which is why "thumbnail astrology" depends so heavily on Sun Sign qualities to describe a person's character. But, although the Sun is undeniably a major player in Astrology, it is only one of several dozen important indications of character in your Natal Chart.
Some of these other points, depending on what else resides in your horoscope, can be extremely influential in fashioning the final result.
The Sun is the Astrological symbol that represents your ego, your basic sense of yourself. It gives information about how you see yourself, the role you play in Life's great creative cycle, the things that are important to you ... and the ways in which you want to be important to the world.
The sign that contains the Sun tells a lot about the qualities you use to express yourself ... to get noticed ... and to be "part of the world." In many ways, it defines the essence of you as an evolving, thriving, dynamic spiritual being.
The House of your Natal Chart that contains the Sun reveals the area of life where you feel your most intense ambitions, the area of life where you express yourself and your importance, and the place where you really want to shine.

From the Blogs, Ezines
Sun in Libra -- From Everyday Astrology ---> Everyday Astrology September 22, 2020 Sun in Libra ---> Libra is the 7th sign of the Zodiac -- halfway around the circle, the polarity of Aries. The Sun's arrival in Libra marks the Autumnal Equinox -- the day when the hours of darkness & the hours of light balance. This happens somewhere around September 21 every year -- give or take a day. Just as the Vernal Equinox marks the beginning of Spring ... somewhere around March 21. Balance. Libra's big on that.
From EDA: The Sun and The Moon ---> Everyday Astrology ---> March 30, 2020 Sun & Moon ---> The Sun in your horoscope represents your Essential Self, the inner part of your character that defines your personality and ego. It is your basic identity to the world as your life unfolds. Arguably it also describes your spiritual purpose ... your sense of who you are and who you are meant to become. It is your present self reaching into the future as you develop your potential and talents.
