Planet Sun, according to Vedic astrology, is the planet of progress and sustenance. Hence, its transit between different zodiac signs affects the health, wealth, and career of every person. Thus, it is one of the most fascinating celestial events that astrologers keep an eye on.
Legends of the Sun in Astrology
The most popular legend about the Sun is his relationship with his son, Shani (planet Saturn). It is believed that Surya Deva had a wife, Sangya. She and the Lord had 2 children. But the heat of the Sun was too painful for Sangya. She started losing her fair complexion and became dark. Hence, she was renamed Sandhya due to her dark complexion. Pained by her plight, Sandhya used her shadow to create her lookalike, Chaya. She left her family in the hands of Chaya for some time and went into a retreat at her father’s house. In the meanwhile, Lord Surya was pleased that his wife no longer repelled his heat. He was unaware that Chaya was the lookalike of Sandhya. He had a Son, Shani, with Chaya. On seeing the face of Shani who was black, Lord Surya doubted that his wife had been unfaithful to him. Besides, as soon as Shani set his eyes on his father, the Sun painfully went into an eclipse mode. Lord Shiva finally informed Surya Deva about Chaya and how Sandhya created her. To this date, it is believed that Shani bears a grudge against Surya Deva for insulting him and his Mother, chaya. And Lord Sun still suffers from the eclipse due to the curse of Shani. Hence, the two are enemies. However, some astrologers contradict this story. Some legends indicate that Sandhya had returned to Suryalok and had destroyed Chaya as an act of revenge. As the children started growing up, Sandhya loved her children but hated Shani who was the son of Chaya. Shani went into a depression since he felt like an unwanted child, unloved by his mother and father. Once, he was so angry that he kicked the womb of Sandhya respiting that once he was a part of her. Devi Sandhya cursed Shani to go limp. Surya Deva, who watched the entire scene, was angry at Shani but more perplexed how Sandhya cursed her Son. He confronted Sandhya who told him the story of Chaya and Shani. Lord Surya did restore some movement in Shani’s leg but there was still a limp left. That’s why Shani is believed to be the slowest moving planet. It is believed that Shani could never forgive Surya Deva for treating him differently than his other two children because he was ugly. Hence, the two planets are still enemies.
Significance of the Sun in Astrology
According to astrology, the Sun is the ruling planet of the 5th house (the house of progeny, knowledge, creativity, intelligence, health, and innovation) in the birth chart. Hence, the Sun is also the ruling planet of the Leo zodiac sign. When Sun has a kind eye on the native and is strong, he blesses the native with a lot of money. The native enjoys good health and earns a lot of fame and success. However, if the Sun has a malefic eye on a zodiac sign it creates turmoil. Such people suffer from skin diseases and lose a lot of wealth.
The worst happens if the Sun and Saturn sit in the same house in the birth chart of a person. Such natives suffer from depression and aren’t able to get peace at all. They fail in everything they do, develop debts and addictions, and lose respect in society due to their poor judgment.
Meaning of Sun Transit
The movement of the Sun between different zodiac signs is known as Sun transit. It takes 24 hours for the Sun to transit from one zodiac sign to the other. Once in a zodiac, the sun sits in a particular house in that zodiac for a year.
