Let’s look at important things here –
Sun - Sun represents Personality, King, Government, Father, Authority, Career, Top Positions, Ego, Self Esteem, Health, Education etc.
Chitra - Chitra is nakshatra of creativity, works related with pictures or images, real estate and relationship conflicts etc. For more information on Chitra Nakshatra, please read this - https://www.astrosaxena.com/citnaksh.
Virgo - As Chitra is 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 nature 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.
Libra - As Chitra is also a part of Libra, Libra sign and its representations also become important. Libra is the 7th sign of Zodiac Belt, hence it represents the energy and things related with 7th house of horoscope, i.e. Market Place, Business, Partnerships, Relations etc. Libra is sign of Balance, i.e. striking the Balance between 2 parties/ideologies or even at personal level between our own dilemmas. It is sign of Peace and Diplomacy. And this is what we are seriously looking for after the conflicts and disagreements of Virgo, i.e. Peace to prevail. At personal level, Libra is seen as sign of Relationships. Libra is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatra named Chitra, Swati and Vishakha. Libra's lord is Venus only.
Mars - As Mars rules Chitra, Mars's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Chitra.
Mercury - As Mercury rules Virgo, Mercury's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Chitra/Virgo.
Venus - As Venus rules Libra, Venus position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Chitra/Libra.
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 Chitra Nakshatra – As Sun represents career, authority and recognition, Sun in Chitra Nakshatra shows that person is gaining growth in career through creativity related career or any career which is somewhere connected with pictures and images. Mostly, I have seen people going into field of architecture with Chitra Nakshatra prominent in chart. It is more because this nakshatra is also related with land, real estate and construction. Due to mythological story, this is also nakshatra of relationship conflicts. So, with Sun in Chitra nakshatra, either these people can have relationship conflicts themselves or they can work like divorce lawyers or relationship counselors. In this position, person needs to let go of ego then only relationship can work. They can be in any work related with analysis too. In Virgo section of Chitra, person can still have a job oriented career but if Sun is in Chitra/Libra then it is a better choice to have own business as Sun is debilitated and person will not get any support from people in authority at job setup.
Role of Mars – Mars placement is important to guide Sun in right direction, being Chitra's lord.
Role of Mercury - Likewise, Mercury placement is important to guide Sun in right direction, being Virgo's lord.
Role of Venus - Likewise, Venus placement is important to guide Sun in right direction, being Libra 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 Chitra. 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 Chitra can work in a chart.
Hope this helps. Please post any comment or query you may have.
