The Sun stands for the will to live, male, electric, phallic, creative life force (in contrast with the moon, female, passive, reflective). The sun also the ego, the adult that censors our inner child, hides the spiritual sun Sirius. The sun is the redeemer Horus, Apollo, Mitras, Christ, the Son of God (in kabbalism, Tiferet, Beauty, the Heart). 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.
