Sun sign

Sun-sign astrology is the most common system of astrology found in many newspaper and magazine columns. In general Vedic Astrology, all of the planets are considered for interpretation. But in Sun sign Astrology only placements affecting the Sun are used. The position of the sun is considered within one of the twelve zodiac signs depending on the month of birth. This sign is then called the sun sign or star sign of each person born in that month.
Despite its vast popularity among the general public, Vedic scholars rarely rely on it and question about the validity of sun sign astrology.

Sun in Indian Astrology
In Indian Astrology, the Sun is called Surya ( Devanagari:, surya) , and is the chief Solar diety, one of the Adityas, son of Kashyap and one of his wife Aditi, of Indra, or of Dyaus Pitar (depending by the versions). He has hair and arms of gold. His chariot is pulled by seven horses, which represent the seven chakras. He presides over "Ravi-war" or Sunday.

Astrologically the sun or Surya represents the soul, will power, fame, authority, kingship, highly placed persons, father, vitality and courage.

Below is the list of each signs with a brief description of their characteristics, and their approximate corresponding dates when the sun enters and leaves each sign using the tropical zodiac. The precise date differs slightly from year to year, due to the leap year adjustment. A person born on the last day of a sign is on what is called the cusp and typically will rely on the sign nearest to them (i.e. an Aries born on April 20 at 8 P.M. would be considered a Taurus, as their birth lies closer to the start date of Taurus, April 21.)
