Sun De(signs)

Sun sign forecasts are based on the position of the sun in your zodiac sign, at your birth. They reveal your personality and temperament vividly and accurately, as the sun is the king of the planets. However other planets also play a vital role in shaping your destiny, which is why many of you feel your personality traits do not match your sign characteristics. This makes predictions exciting and not always perfect. But then neither is life, and astrology reflects life in all its complexity and variety.
