In Natal Chart, the Sun (Surya Graha or Lord Surya) refers to the idea of “center,” symbolically represented by a circle with a point in the middle, similar to a target. Therefore, the Sun in Vedic Astrology indicates the area of life where you awaken greater awareness of your identity and role in the world.
It is also possible to better understand your feelings and desires when you know the position of your Sun in your birth chart.
