The Sixth House represents efforts toward employment, health, and daily activities. Where the body you're born with exists in the First House, the choices made over a lifetime create the body found in your Sixth House. The Sixth House is also associated with routines such as exercise, volunteering, and odd jobs. The Sixth House teaches us to integrate and balance mental, physical, and spiritual energy.

You feel a need to serve others or to be of service to them. Or perhaps it's that you simply want to be served yourself. There may be a tendency to wallow in self-pity, seek sympathy for any little thing, or to develop hypochondriac tendencies.

With the Sun in the 6th House, you take great pride in your work and your workplace. This is where you want to shine and be better than all others. You are a faithful, diligent, and loyal employee who is usually helpful to fellow workers. Some with this position are domineering and develop a false pride over those they work with or for. You can be an administrator, but you may prefer to be an employee. If you are in a position of authority, be careful not to be the office tyrant.

You are very happy when you are busy, and you hate being bored. Worry and anxiety, especially over the desire to do things perfectly, can be detrimental to your health. You need to learn how to relax and not let stress and tension get to you. With this position, you should be especially careful to take good care of your physical body.
