Distance to Earth: 149.6 million km (93 million miles)
Ruler of: Leo
Exaltation: 19° of Aries
With all planets (with exception of Saturn).
Temperately hot, masculine and dry. Can be of good nature or evil nature; it always depends upon the planets aspect with the Sun.
The Sun represents the centre of our planetary system and is giving the life; the Moon is giving the form.
The Sun is the spinal of the astrological system;
Sun and Moon in conjunction:
A conjunction of Sun and Moon is as rather unfortunate seen, as Moon should always have a connection to the Sun. However, this doesn’t mean the person will not succeed in material life (even he can reach the kingdom) but the inner of the person, will rather increase destruction as greediness, selfishness, no feeling for others and they will never see the salvation.
In general one can say, it always brings life, energy and self-development if the planets have a connection to the Moon as well as to the Sun.
Sun and Moon in opposition:
Life can be difficult but they have extremely life energy and have the possibility of self-realization.
Sun’s dignified aspect:
They will be kind-hearted, proud, noble, and generous. They can be a true friend, a broadminded enemy and they are amiable and humane. They have the tendency to be highly fond of magnificence.
Sun ill dignified aspect:
They are conceited, foolishly proud, stubborn, arrogant, unreasonable bossy, uncharitable, troublesome, characterless, unprincipled, and sleepless.
If Sun is in a dominating (benefit) position (or with benefit aspects) :
- Strong will
- masterful character
- good fortune
- very responsible father
- self-respected person
- care about the others more than about themselves
- Managing positions
- All leading positions (when born strongly under the influence of this planet)
- Positions where they can use their authority; this is also the place where these natives have got their special talent.
The native can be very hard-headed and uneasy to manage should he get the impression that he is being leaded and dominated by someone. This however, comes mainly if Sun stays in the Ascendant. Even if Sun stays in Ascendant Leo, still they tend to have problems to cooperate with others because of their own unsteadiness. If Sun stays in Ascendant in a much defected strong and dominating position, it can strongly lead to mental problems because of a non-cooperation communication.
The Sun stays for the life principles, constitution as well as for the character.
Sun strong: it allows the native to receive the benefit of favourable, positive aspects by the planets. And vice versa the native has to endure and suffer the results of contrary influences.
Sun weak: If Sun stays generally weaker, than it is utmost important how good the Nakshatra Lord, the Lord of the House as well as the Natural Ruler of the House are situated. However, if Sun is weak, the person will miss life energy.
Sun strongly debilitated (plus in many Vargas debilitated)
This affliction no other planet can recover.
Sun rules the heart, the back, the eyes, the arteries as well as the retentive faculty and is responsible for organic troubles.
Fainting, weak sight, palpitation of the heart.
