The Sun is a star that radiates light because it fuses hydrogen into helium. It stands for the will to live, male, electric, phallic, creative life force (in contrast with the moon, female, passive, reflective), the soul that breathes life into the ego-mind-personality, the adult that censors our inner child, hides the spiritual sun Sirius. The sun is Ra, the redeemer Horus, Apollo, Mitras, Jesus Christ, the Fool (Jack), the Son of God (in kabbalism, Tiferet, Beauty, the Heart), Superman. The truth, the light. The present, here and now in contrast with the moon, past and subconscious.

The sun rules Leo (the lion was always considered as a symbol of male, dominant force). Tarot card 19 the Sun.

The Aryans worshiped Arya and the new born sun Harya, risen of the horizon. In Egypt Harya became Hor. The Egyptians worshiped the sun as Ra or Re (Khepri as rising and midday sun and Atum as setting sun).

In alchemy the sun was associated with gold. Mercury was used to conquer the human soul. Freemasons use orange=33=sodomy symbolism.

Apollo was associated with wolves (Sirius the dog or wolf star). Mithras was worshiped in the Roman Empire as Sol Invictus.
