If you have a more sheltered spot, say somewhere in a sunny corner where a fence, hedge or wall will shade it from the early morning sun (ie with a fence/hedge/wall to its East), you would probably be OK to move it now. If you do, prepare a fairly large (say, 1m x 1m, 2 spades deep) hole first, digging-in plenty of compost, drive in a good hardwood (eg oak) tree stake, then try and take as much of the rootball with the tree as you can when you dig it up. Re-plant the tree so that the base of the trunk is at the same ground level as it was when you back-fill the hole. Finally, tie the stem to the stake with a tree-tie. You'll need to keep it well watered for the rest of the year, watering at least once a week.
An alternative to moving it may be to plant a large shrub a few feet away to the East to provide the morning shade and give it a bit of shelter. It's difficult to know how old it is, but if it is only 2 or 3 years old, there's a good chance it will survive being moved. Before doing anything though, could you upload a photo of it in ithe current location? For all we know, it might already be in a suitable place and may have some other problem!
