Sun/ Surya Planets

Sun in astrology represents Lord Vishnu. One of its names is Aditya. Sun is also called Bhutasya Jatah (father of all bhutas). It is the leader of all the planets. The Sun in Vedic Astrology represents the male principle. With the Mars, the relationship is Tamasic and with Moon, Rajasic. When the Planet Sun in astrology is afflicted, it indicates problems with the male role model or father. The Sun is a star of light, warmth and life. Therefore, it emphasizes nobleness, courage, loyalty and generosity, but also self-centredness, pride and irascibility.

In a woman's horoscope chart, the Sun usually symbolizes her husband and her father. The Sun is associated with hopes and ambitions.
