influence. A well-located Sun provides intelligence, perception, strength of
will and character. It creates endurance, stamina, vitality, positive
spirit, direction, courage, conviction, confidence, leadership, independence

An ill-placed Sun gives lack of intelligence, poor perception, weakness of
will and character. It creates lack of endurance, low vitality, melancholy,
fear, dependency or servitude, deviousness or dishonesty. An overly strong
but ill-disposed Sun creates pride, arrogance, tyranny and control. It
creates much of the same problems as Mars (or Saturn), when too strong. A
weak but spiritually inclined Sun makes us friendly, desiring to do good and
