Let’s look at important things here –
Sun - Sun represents Personality, King, Government, Father, Authority, Career, Top Positions, Ego, Self Esteem, Health, Education etc.
Punarvasu - It is a nakshatra of rehabilitation and recovery process. It is very closely connected with after-care medical activities. It can also be a nakshatra of counselling. For more information on Punarvasu Nakshatra, please check this - https://www.astrosaxena.com/punnaksh.
Gemini - As Punarvasu is part of Gemini, Gemini sign and its representations become important when any planet is in Punarvasu/Gemini. Gemini is the 3rd sign of zodiac belt, so it represents many things related with 3rd house of horoscope like, Communication Skills (either written, oral or even by sign language), Marketing, Business etc. It is a sign basically related with communications and business ideas. Gemini is divided into 2 and half nakshatra of Mrigashira, Ardra and Punarvasu. Gemini's lord is Mercury, which is significator of Communications.
Cancer - As Punarvasu is also a part of Cancer, Cancer sign and its representations become important when any planet is in Punarvasu/Cancer. Cancer is 4th sign of Zodiac Belt, hence it represents the things represented by 4th house like Mother, Mother's Care, Emotions, Taking Care of Others and Nourishment etc. Cancer is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatras namely Punarvasu, Pushyami and Ashlesha. Cancer's lord is Moon, which again represents almost same things which Cancer and 4th house represents.
Mercury - As Mercury rules Gemini, Mercury’s position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Punarvasu/Gemini.
Moon - As Moon rules Cancer, Moon's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Punarvasu/Cancer.
Jupiter - As Punarvasu is ruled by Jupiter, Jupiter's position and dignity will also have an important role in functioning and results of any planet in Punarvasu.
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 Punarvasu Nakshatra – Now, when Sun is in Punarvasu Nakshatra which is coming after Ardra, we are moving a step ahead of the turmoil and chaotic events. It means this nakshatra represents people who take care of those who have suffered a turmoil. They provide them rehabilitation and kind of hope for the future. As Sun represents Career, Sun in Punarvasu prominently shows someone in medical an after-care activities/services. Any one in medical profession can be seen here. It also shows people who work in any kind of rescue and safeguarding activities. As Sun also represents person himself, it shows that person will go through a turmoil in personal life and will come out of it. Due to lordship of Jupiter, it is also connected with spiritual counselors or teachers. It also signifies a sense of security with person. In Gemini portion, it will be more a counselor or teacher who helps people to rehabilitate. In Cancer portion, it is more a medical healer who helps people in health issues. It can show a very optimistic person.
Role of Mercury – Mercury's position will become important in functioning and results of Sun in Punarvasu/Gemini as Mercury rules Gemini. If Mercury is in good dignity then Sun will have proper direction about the direction of his path or career.
Role of Moon – Likewise, Moon's position will become important in functioning and results of Sun in Punarvasu/Cancer as Moon rules Cancer. If Moon is in good dignity then Sun will have proper direction about the direction of his path or career.
Role of Jupiter - Likewise, Jupiter's placement is important to guide Sun in right direction, being Punarvasu's 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 Punarvasu. 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 Punarvasu can work in a chart.
