That seems a simple enough question bt but there is considerable controversy regarding the various possible answers! That's due to the fact there are over forty house systems and at least fourteen in regular use by various different astrologers according to their personal preference. The most popular fourteen are available on on the extended chart selection page, under Options and adjacent to house systems. If you experiment with Whole Sign for example, then your sun is in the 2nd house, although with some other systems it is in the 1st house. Experiment with choosing from the various house systems and you'll get the idea
Anachiel has previously posted this useful advice on the matter:

For example, in this particular case, Ptolemy in his third book of the Tetrabiblos describes two completely different house divisions when focusing on life and death matters. The difference is the calculation (or perspective) in order to determine the difference between what "rules" life and death in the chart vs. when they actually are "active" and can be "used". So, you see a difference in divisions as to how to first determine what is, as opposed to, when to use what is. Each having a different way to divide the chart to determine these.
I am certainly no scholar and I leave that to greater minds but, there appears to me to be a lost view of perspective as to when to use different house systems for particular reasons. It was not just a free-for-all by any means and there was a method in choosing what has now become madness of choice. lol
