Almighty Sun

The Sun

As we all know, the Sun is a star in our solar system which provides us heat, light and life itself.  There would be no life on earth without him.  He is the center of extreme power.  All the planets revolve around the Sun due to his huge gravitational force and receive their light from him.  He is the ruler of all planets and is the only source of energy.  Other planets reflect only his light.

The luminary’s rays are connected with the inner most spirit of human beings, making him the “Soul of the Universe” representing the life-force on Earth.  In Vedic Astrology, he has been described as the Soul (Atma) of all beings, who is the ‘self’ of a person.

According to Vedic astrology, the Sun is not only the significator or karaka planet for one’s soul, father, authority, name and fame, but also of the first and the ninth house in a birth chart.  Being the king of all planets, he is found to be the significator of bravery, courage and dominance.

The Sun is the ruler (lord) of the zodiac sign, Leo.  He gives us vitality, power of resistance and immunity.  He is also responsible for our physical constitution, will power, intellect, brilliance, prosperity, success in worldly affairs, personal conduct, activity, cheerfulness, good fortune, ambition, fame, the understanding of the phenomenal world, and the knowledge of medicine.

The Royal Fire Ball is worshiped as the God Himself in many cultures all over the world.  So, let us conserve, make use of the solar power and energy in a wise manner and make way for a better Earth going forward!

Yarn of the Solar System

Assume that the sky is divided into 360 degrees around the earth.  All celestial bodies rise in the east of the horizon of Earth and sets in the west just as the Sun (Surya) and the Moon (Chandra).

Zodiac Sign or Rasi Mandal

Stars or Nakshatras are grouped into 12 signs or rasis/rashis.  Each sign or rasi contains 2-1/4 stars (constellation) each.  Each star or nakshatra consists of four padas, so each sign or rasi consists of (4+4+1) nine padas or navamsas or divisions). The twelve signs or rasis are named Aries or Mesha, Taurus or Vrishabha, Gemini or Mithuna, Cancer or Kartaka, Leo or Simha, Virgo or Kanya, Libra or Thula, Scorpio or Vrischika, Sagittarius or Dhanus, Capricorn or Makara, Aquarius or Kumbha and Pisces or Meena.

House Cusps or Bhava Madhya

  • Ascendant (Lagna) / 1st house cusp – the degree of the sky (superimposed on a navamsa or division of a sign) that rises on the horizon in the east at a particular point in time (birth time).
  • Descendant / 7th house cusp – the degree (identical to Ascendant) of the sky (superimposed on a navamsa or division of a sign) that sets in the west at 180 degrees from the Ascendant at the same time.
  • Mid-heaven / 10th house cusp – a degree identical to that of the Ascendant (superimposed on a navamsa or division of a sign) at 90 degrees to the Ascendant – Descendant axis, overhead, at the same time.
  • 4th house cusp – a degree identical to that of the Ascendant (superimposed on a navamsa or division of a sign) at 270 degrees to the Ascendant – Descendant axis, in the opposite direction of the 10th house cusp / Mid-heaven, at the same time.

Houses or Bhavas

Assuming, the sky is again divided into 12 houses or bhavas, 30 degrees each, with a degree identical to the Ascendant at the cusp (bhava madhya or midpoint) of the house or bhava, the 12 houses or bhavas are superimposed on the 12 signs or rasis.

Planets or Grahas

According to Vedic Astrology, there are nine planets or Grahas that revolve around the Sun (Surya) inclusive.  Those are Sun (Surya), Moon (Chandra), Mercury (Budha), Venus (Shukra), Mars (Kuja or Mangal), Jupiter (Guru or Brihaspathi), Saturn (Shani), North Node (Rahu) and South Node (Ketu).

Planetary Positions

These are the position or placement of a planet or graha at a particular degree in a sign or rasi / house or bhava at a particular point in time (for instance birth time).

Sign Lord/Rasiadhipathi or House Lord/Bhavadhipathi

Each sign or rasi is owned or ruled by a particular planet (Lord) based on the nature of the planet similar to that of the rasi.  Sign Lord and House Lord are used interchangeably as the Houses are superimposed on Rasis.

House Lords/Bhava Lords/Sign Lords

            Sign/Rasi Rasi/Sign or Bhava/House Lord
Mesha/Aries and Vrischika/Scorpio Kuja or Mars
Vrishabha/Taurus and Thula/Libra Shukra or Venus
Mithuna/Gemini and Kanya/Virgo Budha or Mercury
Kartaka/Cancer Chandra or Moon
Simha/Leo Surya or Sun
Dhanus/Sagittarius or Meena/Pisces Guru or Jupiter
