na hinvanasastitirusta indram pari spaso adadhat suryena”
                                                        – RV_01.033.08.1{02}
This scripture speaks a lot about the Sun. This scripture says

“ By Sun, who shines like fire, is moving in a circular orbit, the Sun give all the comforts and keep Earth in place, through gravity”

The Sun, has a great role in the Vedic texts and the Sun is considered as the father in astrology. The Sun not only represents the father, but it also means ego, self-esteem, spirituality, pride and soul. That’s why the Sun is the natural Atma Karaka for all.

Atma Karaka means the significator of your soul. The matters of that house where the Sun is placed will show what in what your soul rejoices. If your Sun is in the 9th house of spirituality, higher studies, religion, teaching and publishing, then your career area will have a strong connection with the matters of the 9th house.

The Sun is so glorious, whenever any planet gets closer to the Sun, then that planet will go in combust mode. This is not applicable for Rahu and Ketu. These are the only planets which can eclipse the Sun.

The Sun owns only one sign in the zodiac and that is Leo. He is exalted in Aries and debilitated in Libra. Other than in divisional charts the Sun will not aspect Mercury and Venus, because both these planets always orbit near the Sun. In Western astrology, Mercury and Venus can create a kind of aspect which is called Sextile or Trine.

The Sun is the ultimate form of purity and wherever it stays, it will try to show the areas you need to change.
