What's your sign?
Do you have The Sun in Sagittarius? If you were born between November 21 and December 21, you likely have a Sagittarius Sun in 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. (If you're a Premium Member, you can drop me a note and ask. I'll be happy to tell you.)
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 sign of a sign change will be very discreet.
If you're a Scorpio born on the day the Sun moved into Sagittarius, your character will be a little more secretive, self-contained and controlling than your later born Sagittarius star siblings. But they will still show a lot of Scorpio qualities in their make-up, and you will show a lot of Sagittarius in yours.
The same, of course, holds at the other end of the sign. If you're a Capricorn born on a day that began with the Sun in Sagittarius, there's a no-nonsense, all-business attitude in you ... and a more status-conscious cast to your character than in your earlier-born Sagittarius kin. But you still have a lot in common. You have plenty of Sagittarius generosity in your make-up ... and they have an extra touch of Capricorn reserve and self-discipline 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.

When the Sun is in Sagittarius ---> When the Sun is in Sagittarius, people are charitable, open and honest. Their actions and attitudes are fair, independent, and moral. Their overall outlook is candid and optimistic. This is a sincere, generous sign that encourages expansion and growth.

His Majesty ... The Sun -- The Center of Our Solar System ---> The Sun is perhaps the most rudimentary and reliable chronometer ... "measure or marker of time" ... we have. It is certainly the most obvious. It rises every morning ... and sets every evening. It has been doing so for millions of years. It will continue this rhythm past the time limits any human mind can imagine.
The Sun in General -- Your Essential Self of Power, Will, Vitality and Ambition ---> The essence of you -- In Astrology, The Sun represents your basic core identity. It gives information about the qualities of your ego, your individual self-expression, your self-image and your sense of personal identity.
The Sun -- Ruler of Leo -- Symbol of Your Essential Self ---> The Sun, without which life on Earth could not exist as we know it, is the astrological metaphor which symbolizes an individual's basic personality, the underlying canvas upon which all the other colors and elements of his character are co-mingled and combined.
