The Sun Sign Simplified
When learning astrology it all starts with the sun. This is the most well known sign, and the center point from which all astrology branches. The very first stargazers noticed that those born under a particular constellation shared a striking number of the same characteristics. Over the millennia, these observations have been refined and expanded to give us the many associations that go along with each sign.
There are twelve Sun signs, each with its own character traits, inclinations, leanings, motivations, etc. Your sun sign describes your basic nature and the personality traits that remain constant through the ups and downs of life. The sun sign blends with the rest of your planets to form your unique, one-of-a-kind astrological blueprint. The dates for determining someones sun sign are:

From the pursuit of a partner to a career, the sun sign shows how your ego or ambitions will push out into new experiences. Each of the twelve signs does this a little bit differently, which is part of what makes the human spectacle endlessly fascinating.

Likewise your sun sign describes the innermost workings of what makes you you, this insight can be priceless during decision making or just on the path to self discovery.
