The earth makes a complete circle around the sun once each year. From our position, this appears as if the sun were traveling around the earth. In this time, the sun moves through all twelve signs of the zodiac, spending approximately one month in every one. The sign that the sun is found in at the moment of your birth is your sun sign.
The sun is our most powerful planet (in astrological terms, the sun is referred to as a planet even though it, like the Moon, is actually a "luminary"). Even from a great distance, it sustains us on earth, giving us life, warmth, energy, and food. Because of this, the sun is arguably the most important and pervasive influence on your horoscope. In many ways, the sun determines how others see you. It governs your individuality, your specific style, and your motivation to succeed.
An understanding of your own sun sign will provide you with an added degree of self knowledge, a deeper insight into the stranger that is yourself.
A note about sun signs
It's happened to all of us: you open a website to read your horoscope and thought “That doesn't fit me at all!” Keep in mind, the Sun sign is only one piece of your character. The Moon and each of the planets also influence you in a variety of ways. With the added environmental and genetic factors, it would be impossible to define the essential you-ness of you by only one factor.
You are a unique combination, unlike anyone else. If you think of yourself as a difficult puzzle, your sun sign would be the edge pieces.
