Your Sun energy defines the solid center of your spiritual identity. It describes the substance of who you are as a character, as a person, as a spiritual being.
In Astrology, your Sun energy defines your life purpose, your central essence ... the power that fashions and expresses the singular presence that is completely, uniquely you.
The Sun in your horoscope stands for a lot of things like self-realization, self-determination, self-actualization ... lots of things beginning with "self" ... like self-interest. It is the awareness that you exist, that you have power, that you can have a impact on the world and on others, that you have a right -- even a responsibility -- to be here ... and that you matter.
Your Sun energy wants you to understand yourself -- and use your power wisely. It wants you to appreciate your abilities and use them productively. It affirms that your perspective has value, that it contributes to the world and that it fulfills the purpose for which you exist. It wants you to honor yourself and know that your place in reality is sacred. It's yours. It's significant.
Sometimes Life cooperates in this; sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes your different Inner Selves cooperate in this; sometimes they don't. You -- and your Sun energy -- will act one way when things are going well. You will both become "a completely different person" when they aren't.
The Sun -- Just the Facts
The Sun = Your Essential Self -- your ego, fundamental sense of self, basic spiritual purpose, central ambition, willpower, ability to have impact
Your Sun energy wants you to succeed in life by being yourself. It wants you to thrive in expressing your basic character -- your central purpose ... the reason you came here as a spiritual being in a material world in the first place. To know who you are and be who you are are perhaps the most fundamental rights of all. Your Sun energy helps you achieve both. Consider that its reason for being!
