In Western Astrology, the Universe is divided into 12 parts and these 12 parts have different names that start from Aries and ends with Pisces. Now, wherever the Sun is situated among these twelve parts at the time of your birth, that would be your Sun sign. The Sun is at the centre of our solar system with all other planets revolving around it. It is the storehouse of energy and the giver of life. It refers to our conscious actions and soul, the centre of our being.
It is your answer to the question “Who are you”, the exterior self and image that you project to the world around you. While the Moon is more about Instincts while Sun represents the Reason. Moon is emotions, feelings and memories, Sun is confidence, ambition and the present. While different planetary energies might make you think, contemplate and hope of different things, what you actually do comes under the realm of Sun.
The cosmic realm is divided into 12 equal parts called Zodiac Signs and the sign that Sun is travelling through at the time of your birth is called the Sun Sign. Sun sign shows your basic nature and personality, that stays with you unaltered through all the ups and downs of life. Sun is essentially the king of our birth chart, full of power with a lion-like approach. It is the fuel or energy that we use throughout our life. It is the fire that keeps our soul active and burning. The position of Sun in a sign at the time of birth is crucial.
