In Vedic Astrology, the Sun or Surya is a very important planet. The Sun wields a strong magnetic power which compels the other planets to follow him. The Sun denotes the father figure in a family, as well as in the societal connectedness. It also represents the boss at the workplace or higher authorities in other businesses. The Sun is the Karaak planet of your health and is also your Father.
Therefore, an unfavourable position of the Sun in the Kundli or horoscope / birth chart of a person, will attract problems in several aspects of life. Hence, the placement of the Sun in the birth chart is very crucial.
Robust and powerful, the Sun lights up the earth every morning, driving away the darkness. Similarly, if placed favourably it can neutralise the negative effects in your horoscope. The Sun’s positive impact can bring name, fame, success, wisdom, confidence, charisma, wealth, and respect. At the same time, the sun’s ill-effect can make you introverted, egoistic, over-ambitious, jealous, arrogant, pompous, and prone to psychological problems.

You can remove the negative energies of a weak Sun by performing yogic procedures. The energy of the Sun resides in the “Sahasrara Chakra” aka Solar Plexus chakra, the highest psychic centre in the human body. Each day, either in the morning or before going to bed at night, concentrate on the top of your head where the Solar Plexus chakra is located and chant the mantra “Om Rhim Rhim Surjaya” in your mind. To meditate, sit cross-legged in the Sukhasana pose with your eyes closed and your back straight.
