Carl Gustav Jung believed that it is our goal to find a myth we identify with and then live it.
Astrology can help us find that personal myth to live by.
Birth charts tell stories and they are as complex as your life and personality.
The sun plays a central role: it is the gravitational center of the solar system, it is symbolic for the hero in mythology, and it stands for our ego in astrology.
If your whole chart is the myth that you are living, the sun in your chart is the hero(ine).
With an Aquarius Sun, the hero(ine) of your personal myth is the waterbearer.
The journey or quest that you will have to embark on in your life is to bring water to the people.
This is symbolic of your humanitarian identity.
A classic myth from Greek Mythology that deals with this is that of Prometheus:
He saw that people were suffering down on earth - it was cold and dark and they had nothing but raw food to eat.
So he decided to steal fire from the Gods and bring it down on earth so that it would keep them warm, protect them in the cold nights, and cook their food.
Like Prometheus who brought the fire to humanity, or the waterbearer who saves humanity by giving them water, those with their sun in the sign of Aquarius identify as someone who is here to contribute to society.
Aquarius is associated with humanitarian, political and scientific occupations.
In any way possible, they need to give something to the bigger whole, to the collective.
Most importantly, they want to help the people, the everyman. They root for the underdog, they support the bottom of society that carries the biggest weight.
Robin Hood is another classical Aquarius hero.
He stole money from the rich to give it to the poor.
Aquarius is the archetypal rebel who is strictly anti-establishment, even anarchic.
Uranus, the ruling planet of Aquarius, was discovered during the French Revolution - while fighting for the freedom and the rights of the people.
So what is your purpose as an Aquarian hero?
The house of the sun shows where you have to bring the water (or the fire, or the money) to - what your humanitarian pursuits are focused on; what the center stage of this inner hero(ine) is.

Aquarius Sun in the 2nd House
You have to create your own value system, find worth in something independent of what people say is of value or not. Making your own money and going against tradition is the focus of your life. Oprah Winfrey has this placement.
Aquarius Sun in the 3rd House

Coming from a different background and being proud of it or forming a unique and unusual family is at the center of your life.

You are a revolutionary is selfless service and spirituality. Your life's purpose may be to found a unique and different charity, to help others with your humanitarian spirit, and be a "rebel behind the scenes" with your silent support to a new world.
