Sagittarius - As Purva Ashadha is part of Sagittarius sign, Sagittarius and things represented by Sagittarius are important here. Sagittarius is the 9th sign of Zodiac Belt, hence it represents many things related with the 9th house of horoscope like Religion, Knowledge, Wisdom, Higher Learnings, Gurus, Teachings from your Father etc. Besides it also represents Coaching, Universities, Professors and Preachers, Higher Wisdom, Written Law of the Land etc. Sagittarius has 2 and half nakshatra which are Mula, Purva-Ashadha and Uttara-Ashadha. Sagittarius' lord is Jupiter.
Venus - As Venus rules Purva Ashadha, Venus's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Purva Ashadha.
Jupiter - As Jupiter rules Sagittarius, their position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Purva Ashadha/Sagittarius.
Houses Involved – Also, we can’t afford to forget the houses involved as a planet can be ruling different houses and sitting in different house for every person as per ascendant and planet’s position. To know overall affect, we have to consider the houses involved as those areas of life are being impacted.
Interpretation of Sun in Purva Ashadha Nakshatra – As Purva Ashadha falls in middle of Sagittarius, it represents the Sagittarius energy the most. Hence, 1st of all it can make someone education or knowledge oriented. They can be easily seen in career related with academics. They can also be seen in any career where you have to give care and nourishment to others. As it is nakshatra of analysis and segregation, these people can be very good at analysis related work. Even in personal life, they can be very good at recognizing between good or evil people. They can also be a good counselors. They can also be seen as working as Lawyer or working for Govt. As it is ruled by Venus, they can also be seen in financial nature of work. Their personality gets deeply impacted by education and people of different culture. The more they get educated, the more confident they are in life.
Role of Venus – Venus placement is important to guide Sun in right direction, being Purva Ashadha's lord.
Role of Jupiter - Also, Jupiter placement is important to guide Sun in right direction, being Sagittarius lord.
Other Factors – And of course, we need to consider conjunction, aspects, house lordship, house position and dashas etc to know the exact results of Sun in Purva Ashadha. So, we always need to take a holistic view of chart rather than just 1 planetary position.
Conclusion – So, this is how I see Sun in Purva Ashadha can work in a chart.
