The Sun sign simply signifies the MONTH that you are born. You will notice that the Vedic Sun Signs shift in the middle of most months.
Does this change who you are or your personality? Definitely not. It is usually validating when people learn of their Vedic Sun sign. When I describe the Sun sign according to what house it is in for each person in a session, they often say “Wow, that is much more accurate!”
The reason you might have been able to “see” yourself as your Western Sun Sign personality is because I often find that people have planets in their Western astrology sun sign! So there is a flavor of that influence in the person’s life, it is just not the sun sign.
On the Cusp
If you are born on or near the date when the Sun appears to change constellations, then your sun sign will depend on the year and where on the planet you were born. You’ll need to have a Vedic Birth Chart to know definitively what your Vedic Sun Sign is.
The sky map is different.
Western or tropical astrology uses the Tropic of Cancer to define the sky map. The result: This means the sky map is about 2000 years ‘off’ from our current skies according to astronomy. See more below for more information on the different sky maps.
Each sign in the zodiac is 30 degrees.
Western astrology is approximately 23 degrees “later” than Vedic astrology. So your Sun sign might be in a different constellation according to Vedic Astrology!
For instance, if you have your Sun in Aries in Western astrology, there is a chance your Sun sign in Vedic astrology would be in Pisces. If your Sun sign is in the late degrees of a sign, later than 23 degrees, then your Sun Sign will remain in the same sign from Western astrology to Vedic astrology.
For instance, if your Sun sign was at 25 degrees in Aries in Western astrology, you would still have Sun in Aries in Vedic astrology.
