What Your Sun Sign Means, According To Astrology
Zodiac, Self

Here comes the Sun!

The Sun rules Leo and, according to astrology, it is the light of vitality, hope, romance and love for all zodiac signs.

In fact, all zodiac signs were born with planets placed throughout their natal chart, and where the Sun falls in your horoscope certain personality traits feature the strongest.

What is a Sun sign in astrology?

The Sun represents our conscious mind, our life force, and our will to live. The Sun is "the giver of life."

Each planet comes with the name of a zodiac sign and astrology house, and these details define who you are as a person and what your purpose in life is.

The Sun is our ego, and also our point of reason when we are making decisions.

On our natal charts, we find our life purpose from looking at the Sun. The Sun is the reason that is behind your actions.

According to Cafe, "The Sun is our basic identity, and represents self-realization."

Your Sun sign directs your life purpose

Overall, the Sun directs us on the path that we should go in life, and it represents our vitality as a person.

Those who identify with the Sun on their natal chart will find that they are super happy.

But the Sun does not show who we are, it shows who we are going to be. (I know, Yoda stuff right here.)

The Sun reflects the present and when we are acting like our Sun sign, we are directed, proud, creative, and purposeful.

Still, you have to watch out that you are not overly willful, self-centered, haughty, or judgmental.

The Sun rules the zodiac sign, Leo

The Sun is the planetary ruler of Leo. For this relationship, there is an important placement of self-image here.

While the Sun gives us a sense of purpose in life, it is important to aspire to do your best and then you will find a sense of pride and purpose when you accomplish something to your best ability.

This planetary ruler gives off feelings of passion, intensity, and drive, but it can also be negative with the spark of false confidence or arrogance. In other words, you just have to be careful.
