The Sun represents your personality, how you see and know yourself to be. The Sun is the ego, the inner you, your essence, and the unchanging part of you. The Sun is how you shine your light in the world. It is the deep and lasting force that enables you to make decisions and direct your life.
The Sun rules Leo and represents your will power or 3rd chakra. The Zodiac sign your Sun is in defines the dynamic expression of your will. The characteristics of your Sun sign are the first broad strokes that outlines your general shape, the planes and angles of your face, the way in which you hold your body.
The Sun sign shapes your character and your core. Are you introspective or extroverted? Do you make friends easily or prefer to be solo? Are you fiery or airy, earthy or watery? Are you high-strung or easygoing? These answers can be found by understanding your Sun’s position by sign and house, and how other planets are in relationship. Remember, the sun sign is just the start of your portrait. Think of your Natal chart as a painting of you.
