It's who you are
The Sun in your horoscope represents your Essential Being. Its location shows a place of power in your Natal Chart. Its sign position, house location and aspect support or interference reveals a wealth of information about your ability to realize your ambitions and have an impact on the world.
---> * The Sun in General
The Sun reveals your primary interests and strengths, your personal traits and qualities -- the basic tools you have to accomplish your life's work. The Sun defines your life purpose, the reason why you're here ... and what you're meant to do, how you're suited to the task, the help you have ... or the challenges you face ... from within your own character. In short, The Sun shows how you're designed to operate.
---> * What Does The Sun Represent in Your Natal Chart?
It's how you were built
It's there for you to read -- or hear about from someone who knows how to decipher the language ... the star code of the cosmos. That's basically what astrology is -- and what reading a Natal Chart is all about -- translating the symbols of Astrology's shorthand for profound and complex meanings and applying them to real life people and situations.
---> What IS a Horoscope?
A lot of things can influence the expression of your Sun energy, particularly your Sun Sign traits, but generally the list of character qualities that come with your Sun Sign energy should feel natural to you ... and be easily recognized as "basically you" by people who know you. This wide, familiar correlation is what keeps Sun Sign astrology so prominent in mainstream culture. It's a tiny piece of what Astrology's wisdom can do ... but it's a valid starting point, and so it continues to thrive.

It's what you were designed to be
But Sun Sign information is just a foundation ... a framework on which to hang a thousand other details which make you unique ... a person with a character, a perspective and a destiny that may be similar to, but not exactly like, that of anyone else. Positive Sun energy is authentic and impressive. There is nothing whatsoever phony or forced about its declarations on who you are.
---> * The Meaning of the Sun in Astrology
Positive Sun energy is confident and creative, focused and self-aware. This is especially true in the outgoing and intense masculine signs ... the Fire and Air Signs -- Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius. It is equally true in the more introverted and responsive feminine signs ... the Earth and Water Signs -- Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces. Their Sun Sign energy is just as strong, just as capable. The only difference is ... it's not so much in-your-face as their extroverted brothers.
---> * The Sun: Ruler of Leo
To "feel like" your Sun Sign energy shows you basically have permission to be yourself, to engage life on your own terms and enjoy it in your own way.
