The Role of the Sun

The Sun in astrology symbolizes orange color, ruby and gold metal. It is considered the most important planet in the horoscope of every person. The Sun affects individuality, self-awareness and personality development in astrology. The planet Sun goes through a cycle of all Zodiac signs in a year's time and then returns to its original position. It stays in one sign for about a month.

Planet Characteristics

The position of the Sun is a determining factor for the time of birth in astrology. It indicates your personal Zodiac sign. The Sun has a direct connection to the human spirit, to that part of God that everyone has.

Symbol of the Sun and How It Is Designated

The symbol looks like a point in the center of the circle, which is a designation of the Sun. This sign shows how much a person strives for self-knowledge. Since ancient times, the circle has represented unity, integrity, and personification of infinity. It shows the endlessness of a life cycle. A point in the center of the circle indicates that it is just a drop in the universe. Everything that exists in the world is interdependent, thus, every human has a certain purpose he must fulfill.

The Sun Interacting with Other Planets

Sun and Moon

When a person needs to make a decision, his/her temperament does not allow this. The person feels insecure, scared and uncomfortable. It is important to come to terms with others, to see who depends on the decision. Such people constantly want to be in two places at the same time, regardless of the fact that this is impossible. The Moon sign affects their lives too. Others strive for one thing, dreaming of the opposite at the same time.

Sun and Mars 

These people seem to be created for rebelling and going against generally accepted rules. They worship those people who possess the inner fire and follow them blindly. Astrology tells that they are narcissistic and adore similar personalities but constantly challenge them. Such individuals are very dangerous; people shouldn’t openly affront them and engage in battle with them, because the latter have no habit of fearing an enemy. 

Sun and Jupiter 

Such people have nothing sacred. They are conceited and proud, and they know how to get out of the most difficult situations. According to astrology, they value only their own well-being. Such a person often speaks thoughtlessly and incorrectly and therefore, gets into trouble. 

Sun and Saturn 

These personalities seem to be always wound up: they can’t let themselves relax. Such people need to make only the right decisions, otherwise, a disaster will happen. No one pays attention to their achievements. They are fearless and ambitious and therefore, very dangerous. 

Sun and Uranus 

These are independent individuals interested only in their own well-being. They love to take risks and often succeed. Others consider such a person heartless or even abnormal, yet very attractive. 

Sun and Neptune 

They tend to show compassion and like to save others. They often lie to get out of difficult situations. Also, these people frequently make the dumbest things and then experience a crisis of conscience. 

Sun and Pluto

These people are excited by things that others do not understand. These individuals often take risks and become victims.

Vedic Astrology and the Sun 

Surya is the personification of the Sun in Vedic traditions, the true Sun-God. Many are convinced that the Sun is the real God, so you should look at it as often as possible. The Sun is also considered to be the source of knowledge, warmth, and light. In Hinduism, the star is venerated as the king of Graha. 

This planet has a gigantic dimension and the shape of a ball. The Sun represents the total mass of all cosmic bodies in the solar system. Myths say that Surya, a symbol of light in astrology, was born to defeat Asuras, beings who personify the darkness.

Surya symbolizes human determination, the ability to achieve a goal. If a person lives in accordance with his own spiritual world, then everything turns out well for him. The Sun is responsible for temples cleaning human souls. 

Surya is the king of all planets in astrology, noble, having its own dignity and high rank. The king is obliged to rule his kingdom. For him, it is important to develop the best qualities in subjects, to help them succeed. Sometimes you have to give up something important to please others, but then everything will only get better. 

Surya is the pure energy of God, endowed with creative abilities. 

It also represents a father in the natal chart. In ancient times, a father was the head of the family; he was respected and obeyed by other family members. Nowadays, everything has changed, but astrology laws remain the same. 

The Sun also shows the physical condition of a person, since it affects our health and souls. Many may be perplexed by this, however, we should bear in mind that a human has both spiritual and physical nature.

The soul is in the heart of every person, and the Sun occupies the central position in the natal chart. The Sun creates immunity, which protects from diseases. Surya is also responsible for human vision. After all, people perceive the world primarily with their eyes, and light helps them in this. No wonder people say that it is not worth looking into the eyes of evil people, while good people will cheer you up with their inner light.

Psychology and the Sun

The Sun gives a person endurance and physical strength, longevity, generosity, and procreation. It shows where we can take vitality and health and where success and prosperity may also await for us. In astrology, this star shows a person’s attitude to troubles and difficulties he might face, as well as his relationships with others. 

The day star position is the center of the solar system; therefore, it tells about human potential given at the time of birth. The Sun is a vital spark that makes you engage in self-development. Only the Sun has a truly global impact on a personality. 

The Sun shows consciousness in psychology, while the subconscious mind is represented by the Moon. 

Those individuals who consciously follow the energy flow of the Sun feel their integrity, know their destiny and understand the aim of their existence. Their self-esteem is high. 

Those who prefer to go against solar energy lose their individuality and cannot find their place in life. They are full of illusions that cannot become true. As a result, such people become conceited and tyrannical, headstrong and pompous, while trying to assert themselves at other people’s expense. They descend lower and lower on the evolutionary ladder. 

The Sun always casts a shadow, therefore, shows both strong and weak sides of a character. We are not able to reveal ourselves fully, but at least we can try. 

Elective Astrology and the Sun

Sunny hours are successful for all affairs. For example, a person attended an interview. It seems that everything went well, the company’s representative promised to call, yet nobody called back. It is worth calling the company for feedback, but only on a sunny day. 

When it’s sunny, it is better to start playing sports in order to improve health or to make changes in all areas of life. Communication with authoritative people who have political power will also be the most effective within sunny hours. 

Horary Astrology and the Sun

The Sun passes through the Zodiac circle within a year. It makes an arc of 59’8 per day, sometimes around 57’16 or more, but the maximum arc is 61’6. It constantly moves along the ecliptic; there is no latitude. The Sun is never retrograde. However, sometimes it moves slower, while in some cases – faster. This planet represents the male principle and daytime and it has only virtues and beneficial qualities. 

If the Sun is exalted, a person is a devotee and always fulfills promises. He/she really wants to achieve power and recognition.

If the Sun is debilitated, a person is very arrogant and proud. The weak Sun makes them consider themselves to be better than other people and treat others with disdain. However, such individuals lack common sense in deeds and actions. 

Sunny people usually have a large forehead, big eyes, yellow complexion, and impressive physique. They have a friendly and healthy appearance. Such people seem domineering, but they are self-confident and keep their promises.
