A father is the person who provide his family food shelter and everything the family needs, But he does not want anything in return. This is the true nature of sun/father. Sun rises everyday it gives light to everyone but did not ask anything in return. Sun sacrifice himself to give life to others. Sun in Libra is not in his true power. it has to ask to others for any decision. it has to compromise which he don’t like, to overcome this he behave like dictator and shows to others that i am important i did many thing to all of you. This is not the true nature of sun that is sun debilitated here.
