Surya or the Sun is the centre of the Solar system. He is the king planet, who rules all other planets and remains as their source of light. He is also called Adithya, the first born, as he is believed to be one of the earliest inhabitants of the universe. Surya is actually a self-luminary star. However, Vedic Astrology treats Sun also as one of the Nava Grahas, the nine planets that strongly impact the lives of the people and holds that the study of his position and movements, along with that of the other planets can reveal the past, present and future of any individual
Surya is a royal entity who is hot and aggressive. Appropriately, his colour is red and direction, east. He denotes the high and the mighty, will-power and the soul. He is also known as Pitru Karaka, as he represents the father and paternal ancestors. He stays for a month in each sign and takes a year to transit all the 12 zodiac signs. It is the Sun’s entry into the different signs and constellations that marks the change of seasons and also the celebration of festivals like Makara Shankaranthi and Baishaki.
