What does your sun sign mean…..
Your sun sign dominates everything else. It is the outer you, the part you show to others, and it is difficult to hide. Your sun sign is the one you read about in daily horoscopes in newspapers and magazines, and these analyses are based on 12 possible birth periods. You may share characteristics of the sign next to yours if you were born within a few days of the next or previous sign — this is known as being on the cusp.
