An excellent globe of light rising on the eastern horizon and setting in the west with unerring regularity called the sun has awe-inspired mankind since its inception. This sole sustainer of terrestrial life undergoes constant fusion reaction on its surface as per modern science by which two atoms of hydrogen fuse together to make one atom of helium and in the process an unbelievable quantity of energy is released. The โหราศาสตร์ have enabled man to pursue his look for extra-solar planets about 90 of which have been discovered up to now but without any confirmation of extraterrestrial life being present there primarily due to the lack of a special combination of factors like right distance of planets from the sun, right size of the planet, presence of the atmosphere and even more importantly the presence of water. These studies further emphasize the distinctiveness of our sun-earth relationship which is apparently purely astronomical by nature but in effect astrological too.
Significant amounts of our ancients’ attention was focused on the Sun who well recognized its central position within our solar system as well as the fact that many such suns are scattered across various galaxies. These and several other astronomical and astrological facts of importance are documented inside our ancient scriptures including Suryasiddhanta.
In ancient lore, you will find a story about Maya demon, who, following a long tapa was blessed by the Sun God, a part of whom appeared before him and granted him a boon. Maya motivated to make him known the mystery and secret workings of nature and the science of Jyotisha was explained to him by the Sun God himself. Jyotisha contained both predictive and mathematical portions.
In predictive astrology, sunlight represents royal position, the king, authority father, Atma(self), Tanu(body) especially the part of head. Astrologically, if Sun is ill-placed or afflicted in every manner it can impact the abovementioned significations adversely but as taken in conjunction with its lordship. We will discuss throughout this post positive or negative effects of sunlight with regards to different lagans(Ascendants), such placements as well as the Rajayogas(combinations for attaining high positions) it can do formation.
Aries Lagna: Sun is definitely the ruler of 5th house for this particular Lagna ruling children, education and intellect. Sun is really a benefic planet here. It could form Rajayogas with mars, Moon and Venus for this particular Lagna inside the ascending order of power. Positive Placements: Lagna, 2nd 3rd, 5th, 9th, 10th and 11th houses. Other parts of the placements is negative. Taurus Lagna : Sun rules the 4th house for this particular Lagna ruling mother, heart, domestic attachments and property related matters. Sun can form Rajayogas with Venus(blemished as a result of 6th lordship), mercury and Saturn within the ascending order of power.
Positive placements : Lagna, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 9th, 10th and 11th. Other parts of the placements are negative. Gemini Lagna : 3rd property is governed from the Sun for this particular Lagna representing younger siblings, prowess, shoulders and arms etc. Sun is a functional malefic here. Positive placements : Lagna, 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 8th, 11th and 12th. Other parts of the placements are negative.
Cancer Lagna : Sun is ruler from the 2nd house ruling wealth speech, right eye, face and neck. Sun is actually a strong Maraka for Cancer Lagna. As 2nd lord, Sun is actually a neutral planet. It can form Dhanayogas( combinations for wealth) with Moon, Venus and Jupiter(blemished). Positive placements : Lagna, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 9th, 10th and 11th. Other parts of the placements are negative.
Leo Lagna : Sun is lord of Lagna for the Leo natives. It is really an unflinching benefic here. Sun can form Rajayogas with Mars, Jupiter(blemished), Saturn(blemished) and Venus(slightly blemished). Positive placements : Lagna, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 9th, 10th and 11th. Remaining placements are negative.
Virgo Lagna : Sun is lord of the 12th here ruling losses, expenditure etc. Although 12th lord is actually a neutral planet here still because of becoming a Dusthana(negative house) lord usually it really is taken to be a malefic. Positive placements : 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 8th and 12th. Rest of the placements are negative. Libra Lagna : Sun being lord of the 11th house for Libra Lagna rules gains, profits, friends etc. Sun is really a functional malefic here. But as its significations are positive it will always be taken to be a benefic. It can form Dhanayogas with Mars(lord of 2nd), Mercury(9th lord) and Venus(Lagna lord).
Positive placements : 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 9th, 11th. Other parts of the placements are negative. Scorpio Lagna : Being lord of the 10th Sun rules government, father etc. for Scorpio Lagna. Here direct sunlight has an exclusive role to play. Being both karaka and also the lord in the abovementioned significations it can show accentuated results of its position vuztgx these regions of life. It could form Rajayogas with Mars(blemished), Jupiter and Moon within the ascending order of power.
Aquarius Lagna : The Sun rules 7th house for โหราศาสตร์ยูเรเนียน. It represents marriage, travel, partnerships. Sun is actually a benefic here. It may form Rajayogas with Saturn, Mercury(blemished) and Venus inside the ascending order of power. It has been assigned Maraka powers along with its connection with 2nd house could be especially harmful in terms of health. Positive placements : Lagna, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 10th and 11th. Remaining placements are negative. These positions in the Sun really should not be taken as decisively negative or positive on the basis in the results given above without looking at other planets’ influence and especially Bhava degrees, the levels of the planets and the effectiveness of the Sun within the horoscope of a particular individual.
