Sun in House 1

When the natal Sun is in the first house, your strengths and gifts shine visibly. You are blessed with talent and confidence and aren’t afraid to take center stage. You can be charming and attractive because your optimism radiates to others.

You are also likely to be straightforward in an almost childlike manner. It doesn’t occur to you to lie and typically you are so transparent that deception doesn’t figure in to your personality at all.

You may become arrogant if not careful to keep your energy moderated. This is because you are so sure of yourself and highly aware of your mission. You don’t always realize that you are stealing the show and need to be careful to let others shine in the spotlight as well.

You can be charismatic and creative and leadership comes easily to you.

Sun in House 2

Natal sun in your second house emphasizes value, beauty and security. You shine when it comes to practical matters like finance, budgeting and appraising the worth of your resources.

You can be extra lucky when it comes to attracting valuable resources from money to antiques, art or cars. Whether income is up or down you land on your feet and remain optimistic.

This slightly lucky predisposition can make you over optimistic at times. You may tolerate taking risks with money because you trust that you will always find what you need. Usually you are proven correct.

You are drawn to creating security through your charismatic style and can charm others and influence people to believe in your plans. You can become materialistic yet are seldom stingy.

This is because you love to share and uplift others as much as you love creating security for yourself.

You are ambitious and driven to succeed and when this energy is out of balance you may become careless with your money taking for granted golden opportunities or assuming the well will never run dry.

Sun in House 3

Natal sun in the third house of communication and connection to your peer groups brings emphasis to your mental powers. The 3rd house represents mindset, education and connection to neighbors, siblings and peers.

Sun in House 4

Sun in your fourth house places emphasis on home and family. You are at your best when you feel secure. You are drawn to home life and may prefer entertaining at home to going out on the town.

Your focus is on family and any other drive to succeed in career or love life all comes back to the core desire to create a comfortable nest where you can nurture those you love.

You can be highly sensitive and may be introverted especially early on in relationships. You are closely connected to the past and to your own family and upbringing. You may surround yourself with tokens of your own childhood and reminders of your family’s past.

You don’t understand why others aren’t as family focused and home oriented as you. The idea of travel or relocation is overwhelming to you. You don’t really understand why anyone would really ever want to leave the house.

When this energy is not balanced you may become insecure, passive, over anxious and concerned with security in the forms of food and money. You may also be mistrusting of those who aren’t family or part of your inner circle.

Sun in House 5

Sun in your fifth house brings emphasis to playfulness and risk taking. Life is a game and you are more concerned with having fun than with winning.

You can be like Peter Pan, never fully growing up and as such you may feel comfortable with children and younger people.

You love adventure and may take risks both in recreation and with money. Whether you win or lose is inconsequential, you will be off in search of the next quest.

Your creativity and radiance easily attracts others to you and you may resist settling down into a serious relationship until later in life, opting instead to play the game of love for as long as you can.

When this energy is out of balance you may not realize the consequences of your impulsive actions on those who care about you. Your willingness to gamble and seek excitement can leave others feeling hurt or betrayed as you can be more casual about relationships than those who are drawn to you.

Sun in House 6

Natal Sun in your sixth house brings emphasis to work and service. You identify with your job. Career is less important to you than the details of the work you do on a daily basis. Being of service to others is a big part of your mission and identity.

Balance, beauty and harmony are important to you and you seek validation and recognition through others’ view of you.

It may be difficult for you to maintain self confidence when relationships aren’t going well. You are likely to judge difficulties in partnership as a personal failing rather than separating yourself and your needs from those of your partner.
