Leo - As Uttara-Phalguni is a part of Leo, Leo sign and its representations become important. Leo is 5th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents the things associated with 5th house of horoscope like Love, Creativity, Arts, Being on Stage etc. Besides that, Leo is basically the Lion. This is the sign of feeling like King or Queen. Also, it is a sign of independence, Confidence, Ego, Self Esteem etc. Leo is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatra namely Magha, Purva-Phalguni and Uttara-Phalguni. Leo's lord is Sun.
Virgo - As Uttara-Phalguni is also a part of Virgo, Virgo sign and its representations also become important. Virgo is the 6th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents almost all the things which are represented by the 6th house of horoscope like Debts, Diseases, Obstacles, Serving the under-privileged, Service Life, etc. Besides this, Virgo represents analytical or critical skills of people, being perfectionist and healing abilities. Virgo's basic representation is the lady coming in boat with wheat and herbs in her hands. So, Virgo is basically a sign of healing. Virgo consists of next set of 2 and half nakshatra. i.e. Uttara-Phalguni, Hasta and Chitra. Virgo's lord is Mercury.
Sun - As Sun rules Leo and Uttara-Phalguni, Sun's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Uttara Phalguni/Leo.
Mercury - As Mercury rules Virgo, Mercury's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Uttara Phalguni/Virgo.
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 Uttara Phalguni Nakshatra – As Sun represents career, authority and recognition, these people get these things through hard work, facing the reality and being practical in life. They may not get things easy in career matters. Even as a person they can be very realistic or practical. They can be perfectionist too. Most commonly they can be seen as working in financial sector like Share Market, Banks or other Financial Institutions. Another common profession for them is Law. That's where they get authority. They can be very good at managing things or analyzing details. They can also be very good with deals and agreements. As it is also nakshatra of serious committed relationship like marriage, they can also be relationship lawyers or counselors. Again, as Sun represents Ego and Uttara-Phalguni is nakshatra of marriage, this position can lead to ego clashes in relationship. So, they need to be aware of this to maintain stable relationship
Role of Sun – As we are interpreting Sun only, we need not to separately see Sun's position as lord of Leo and Uttara Phalguni.
Role of Mercury - Likewise, Mercury placement is important to guide Sun in right direction, being Virgo'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 Uttara Phalguni. 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 Uttara Phalguni can work in a chart.
