Sun mahadasha

Sun is the soul of the universe, he is the giver of life and light to the universe, he is the king of planets and the planetary kingdom. Sun mahadasha in astrology can be considered a great period of transformation from within. Sun being a huge fire ball burns everything which comes in contact with him, the placement of sun in any house will burn some of the signification of that house due to excess heat, though it is not always negative. The Sun mahadasha comes after Venus dasha and is of a very small duration among the entire planetary dashas spanning merely 6 years.

Sun mahadasha usually proves to be great for those who have sun placed in 1,3,5,9,10,11 houses. Sun is also good in upachaya houses being a malefic. The 10th house is the natural digbala of the sun as it is at the zenith in the sky in the afternoon. Sun placed in Fire signs will give much better results as compared to Earthy and Airy signs, It can be said to be comparatively weak in water signs as fire and water are opposite elements. Those who have Aries, Leo, Sagittarius sun placed in the above said houses under benefic influence will have excellent sun dasha leading to all round progress, such as name, fame, successs in career, politics, public life, honors from government, financial success, sun in 6th gives high positions in jobs though it would affect health matters. The planet and the lordship of planets associated with sun will get a boost in the mahadasha of sun. Sun associated with 5th lord will give excellent in education, success in competitive exams, excellent grades and fame due to education. The dasha of sun will give a great atma bala if sun is strong in the horoscope and give radiance in the personality of the concerned jataka.

An afflicted sun in the 6,8,12 houses or placed in debilitation in libra with bad aspects would prove to be very bad leading to defamation, failure, punishment from government, health troubles, heart troubles, eye troubles, loss of father or distress to father, enemity with bosses and people in high position. There will always be some or the other problem with government authorities with no success or very less success in any undertaken task. Placement of sun in the 7th house gives problems in marriage and poses a threat of separation if afflicted. When a jataka has a weak sun he is not able to influence people in spite of having good talents and skills.

    mercury and venus with sun is most common conjuction in 7 of 10 people. people say budh aditya yoga and raj yoga. But that is oftern not true. what you think. in above case you said excellent results

    what is combustion if Me and Ve are 2 deg ahead or behind sun classics say they are combust. what if sun is weak and in bad condition.

    does close conjuction give excellent communication abilities or confusion and failed married life

    • admin says:

      Namaste Manoj ji,

      Venus conjunct sun is said to spoil married life due to combustion, Most of the artists, actors etc have this combination. Mercury sun gives good intelligence irrespective of combustion or not, mercury is the only planet which gives good results when conjunct to sun. Budh aditya yoga people can earn wealth with their intelligence, it is more better for simha lagna where budh becomes 2nd and 11th lord and sun is 1st lord, For each lagna there will be some variations in results.

      • Manoj says:

        Thanks Ashsish bhai for educating us.

        Now another imp thing i wuld appreciate if you can write is is cancellation of yogas. If marak lord or 7th lord is involved in raj yoga. does it cancel the yoga

        if kendra trikona lords are conjuect 7th lord or 2nd lord. does it cancle of it depends on their friendship/enemity

        Cab raj yogas give results if they are occuring in dusthana house – 6/12th houses?

  2. Anand says:

    Some astrologers say sun dasha (if excellent) will inevitably lead to some connections with government, politicians, etc. THey say sun dasha and raja sambhanda go hand in hand, is this true?

    • admin says:

      It does not happen for all, only if sun is well placed in the horoscope and has good bala. Other planets and houses need to be checked for raj sambandha and higher contacts.

    If Sun is the marriage lord and sitting in 12th house with shukra in shravana nak of Moon. what kind of spouse traits you can expect.

    Lets take an example – Both receive aspect from kundli lord shani

    • admin says:

      It will result in delayed marriage depending upon closeness in degrees and a spendthrift spouse. In moon nakshatra can give problems in married life since moon is the 6th lord so it can even deny marriage depending on other factors.

      • anmol says:

        Thanks Ashish ji

        if Ve is combust does it create more problem? classics say Sun is dead in 12th house and lack power in Sat sign. is that true?

        If Ve is atmakarak and Su is amatyakarak. can it not create Jamini raj yoga or 12th house position cancel that

  5. Sudha says:

    Ashish ji, will not Surya Deva placed in 9th house affect the father? Kindly share your experience.

    • admin says:

      Namaste Sudha ji,

      It will not affect happiness of father unless there are malefics associated with it, Sun in 9th is good and can at the most indicate some separation of differences with father otherwise everything is good.

  6. Sudha says:

    Namaste Ashish ji. Does PAC mean placement, aspect and conjunction? Also is it true that Surya Deva is arogya karaka?

    • admin says:

      Namaste Sudha ji,

      Yes, Sun is the natural atmakaraka and indicates health or more so resistance to diseases. PAC means positions/placement aspect and conjunction which is absolutely right.
