All aspects to the Sun affect how the person, entity or event you're examining expresses itself ... and how it is perceived. If you have aspects to the Sun in your Natal Chart -- and chances are you do, an unaspected Sun is rare but not impossible -- it shows influences from your family of Inner Selves that affect your self expression. Planets that aspect your Sun shape your sense of who you are -- your self identity.
Sun aspects show attitudes and interests that help or hinder your ambitions, how you use your will power, the way you invest your vital Sun energy -- and the payoff or problems that come from this.
Like actual members of a human family, the constellation of your Inner Selves, shown by the other planets in your horoscope, form alliances, offer support or get in the way of your Sun self's agenda. The results form the experience of you ... from the inside where you live ... and on the outside, where you are reviewed by and involved with other people.
Your Sun energy represents your Essential Self ... the head of this inner family and the manager of all these Inner Selves. It's his job (and therefore your job) to work with these components to get his needs met, to do the work on this life's schedule and to create something to show from the investment. The energy and assets of all your Inner Selves are your Sun self's responsibility.
In a Natal Chart, some of these other selves are cooperative, even key, in promoting the Sun self's agenda ... and some aren't. Some really aren't. How well you work with (or work around) all this psycho-political complexity shapes the experience of your life ... and ultimately, the "success" of your life.
Realize your definition of success may not match that of other people, the general public, or values of the culture and society. But whatever the verdict from any of them, aspects to your Sun and the Inner Selves they represent ... the attitudes they show and the different agendas they describe (and pursue) play a central role in whatever happens.
