In the 6th House, the Sun can enhance the degree to which one identifies with their work.
People with this placement in either their natal chart or as a transit will find it important to do work that they can feel proud about doing. They may also have a stronger need for recognition and appreciation for what they do. If they feel denied such acknowledgement, they can easily feel snubbed or undervalued by peers. Their sense of self worth and self respect can make it difficult for them to tolerate such disregard. Sometimes, ego can get in the way of their best interests.
