Best To Worst Placements for Sun - with reasons for top and bottom two.
1. Leo - Their planet (or in this case, star) ruler is the Sun. The Sun emanates the light in our universe to reach all over the corners of our solar system and quite literally this translates to Leos holding up the universe and becoming the most important figures in either their own or other people’s lives, either way children under this sign have the ability to make an impact in someone’s life and most of them will do so whether it be deliberately or in an oblivious state. Most of the times, Leos are self-confident with who they are. If people under this sign do face self-confidence issues, they eventually evolve to become more trusting of themselves as ego-consciousness becomes more evident with the development of their lives.
2. Aries - The Sun is in exaltation in Aries. This means that although it isn’t Aries’ ruler, people whose signs fall under Aries are gifted in life in having very high opinions of themselves, which of course can sometimes be fallible but can also mean good as Aries children are always giving off an aura of self-assuredness in the sense that they do not seem like they doubt themselves even if it is quite the opposite mentally. It also means that they can come across as imperious leaders as the Sun being in it’s exaltation lends Aries’ to have extreme raw energy of the Sun which leads them to have immense trust in themselves and their decisions. The Sun’s energy is typically quite malleable and clear in Leos which allows Leos to grow with their ego but is in its purest and clearest form in Aries.
11. Libra - (okay, before I start, I am aware of the Libra hate going around and please trust me that I’m not basing my MTL on that.) The Sun is in fall in Libra and in a way, I believe it is a befitting fit to Libra. The Sun is about the ego, about yourself and your self-expression, this fits the Leo perfectly as this is their “archetype” or rather what they are associated with. Libras are a socialising sign and depend on others for confirmation and guidance, so they DO take a bit of everyone who they’re around’s personality and use it as a tool to get a long with someone. (If you’re an individualist from another sign, this can be aggravating for rather obvious reasons.) However I don’t believe that Libra has “no personality” but rather that they need to develop the self-confidence and trust in themselves to let their own personality shine through rather than using another’s to let themselves feel accepted by others.
12. Aquarius - The Sun is in detriment in Aquarius and though I don’t really believe that to be a bad placement, it can be considered the worst placement for the Sun as the Sun is more concerned about self and ego however Aquarius are more group oriented. Aquarius children do not see individuals, they see groups to “save” or “revolutionize”, they see the bigger picture whilst the Sun is focused on one point of the picture. Sun in Aquarius is concerned about the well-being of others and their needs and that is why they are considered the Humanitarians of the zodiac. It will take time for the Aquarius to realise that although you should definitely take in regard the feelings of others, it is important to remember yourself too.
