  • The Sun – Position :

    The nature of Surya is fiery. The Sun is the most powerful of all the stars. It is believed that the stronger the Sun the bigger the ego, so much in fact that there might be small place for other people to exist in such egoistic brilliance. Thus, it is where the excess vanity of the Sun exerts a malefic influence. A well–located Sun provides intelligence, perception, strength of will and character. It creates endurance, stamina, vitality, positive spirit, direction, courage, conviction, confidence, leadership, independence and straight– forwardness.

    An ill–placed Sun gives lack of intelligence, poor perception, and weakness of will and character. It creates lack of endurance, low vitality, melancholy, fear, dependency or servitude, deviousness or dishonesty. An overly strong but ill–disposed Sun creates pride, arrogance, tyranny and control. It creates much of the same problems as Mars (or Saturn), when too strong. A weak but spiritually inclined Sun makes us friendly, desiring to do good and self–effacing.

  • Significance of the Sun :

    Surya is the most powerful planet in astrological parlance as any planet placed with it gets combust. However, whenever Rahu or Ketu comes at 14 degrees from the Sun, a solar eclipse occurs around New Moon (meaning Rahu or Ketu eclipse the Sun).
