You dont need full sun to bloom these plants. Cattleyas definitely can take full sun if properly acclimated, but my catts are still shaded.
Move the plant to increasingly brighter light every few weeks or so. This would allow the plant to properly acclimate to the new light levels.
For now, your target will be probably a light intensity somewhere between the plants current light level and near full sun. Once you have adjusted the plant to that level, keep it there for a year and see what happens.
