The Sun tells whether or not you have leadership qualities, what kind of basic
character you have, where your enthusiasms lie. The house in which it's found
shows where you shine best, where you spend a great deal of your time. Here are
your basic urges, your basic aims in life, whether or
not you have direction or purpose. The Sun is energy. It shows the amount of energy
you have. These things also apply wherever the sign Leo is found in your chart.
Since the Sun rules the sign Leo, it retains all the
characteristics of that sign and the 5th solar house but it's combined with the
characteristics of the sign in which it's found in your chart. For example, the
leadership qualities of the Sun are washed out in the sign of Pisces and won't
shine through. In Aries the Sun makes a good leader but is sometimes too quick
or too overbearing; it needs tact and diplomacy supplied through another planet.
In Virgo, the Sun takes a back seat and leads from behind the scenes because of
Virgo's shyness. In Scorpio the leadership qualities shine forth once more but
may be too intense.
The Sun also tells how you get along with influential people, men, how you
conduct your everyday affairs. The Sun is the father figure in a chart.
