Planet Sun ( Surya )












Sun is the king of all the Planets. In fact, it is not a planet since it is illuminated by its own light and hence it is a Star. However in Astrology, Sun is regarded as a Planet. In Hindu mythology, we call it Lord Vishnu who is the lord of the Universe.

Sun represents Power and Authority and hence it is related to all the Government Authorities, posts of power, people who are on the high posts of power like President, Prime Minister, Members of Parliament and those people who are posted as Presidents / Chairmen of Government Institutes.

People with powerful Sun always seek to excel in whatever field they are and therefore they are not happy working under anybody else. Even if they do Business, they prefer to do a Monopoly Business.

Planet Sun is vital for Life on Earth. Its light helps plants to absorb Carbon dioxide and release Oxygen in return which is essential for the Human Beings and many other life forms on Earth. Its Rays destroy harmful bacteria and it increases the Immunity Power of a person.

Sun also represents our Soul and hence a person with powerful Sun have a good soul, his deeds are exemplary and he is always helpful to others. On the other hand a person with a weak Sun may be very greedy, self-centered and of boasting nature and he may have many health problems as well depending upon the placement of Sun in his horoscope.

Sun gives us vitality and the power of resistance and immunity. It determines our physical strength and body's constitution. Sun is regarded as the  life force and giver of will power, intellect, brilliance, prosperity and success in worldly affairs. It is also related to our ambitions and fame. 

The Sun rules over our consciousness and hence it is our "adult"-- the part of us that censors our "inner child" and reasons things out.. The Sun is our basic identity, and represents self-realization. Sun is the psychological factor which dominates our actions. We may think, dream, imagine and hope to become a thousand things according to our Moon and other planets, but ultimately it is the Sun which  decides what we are in reality. We shine in those areas of our life which are related to the house where Sun is placed in our horoscopes.
