Note: There is Astronomical difference between Vedic (Sidereal) and Western (Tropical) Sun signs.  In Vedic Astrology the Zodiac is aligned with 27 constellations (Nakshatras), hence.  Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, aligns with the first constellation Aswini.  In Western Astrology, whenever Sun crosses the Earth’s equator, which is taken as the beginning point of the Zodiac, i.e., Aries. The difference in the point of orientation of both the Sun signs is called Ayanamsa. The below given analysis is based on Vedic Sun signs.


The Vedic Sun Signdescribes your Public Self, theMoon Sign(Janma Rashi)describes your Emotional Personality(the way you interact with others, not necessarily how you are inside) and the Rising Sign(Lagna)describes your true Inner Self(how you are inside and how you face the world unconsciously)

Please note the recorded world population in 2018 is over 7.6 billion people.  There are 12 Sun Signs, that means over 630 million people are born in each Sun sign.   Plainly all born in same Sun sign cannot have the same characteristics and destiny.  Sometimes the below reading may suit your Moon Sign or even Rising Sign.  Best thing to do would be to read all the three (Sun, Moon and Rising sign) Signs and check which readings suits you more.
