Light On The Sun
In Jyotish, the Sun represents intelligence, wit and humor. Said to be the face of Truth, the Sun is the cause of light, and the source of life. In our charts, the Sun shows our divinity, our dharma, our soul.
The Sun: Source of Light, Giver of Life
“I know that great being who has the effulgence of the Sun beyond darkness. Only knowing him can one go beyond death.” ~ Yajur Veda
Worship of the Sun is “the oldest form of religion, as religion itself is a seeking of the light.” ~ Dr. David Frawley
The Sun is our manifestation of the cosmic or universal light. All the planets shine with the reflected light of the Sun.
A well-placed Sun in your chart will give warmth, leadership, character and self-confidence.

Working With The Sun
“The main thing is to establish a sense of self-identity according to our
inner nature as pure consciousness.”
~ Vamadeva Shastri
Cultivate a relationship with Mercury with the planetary mantra:
OM Hrim Suryaya Namaha!
The Sun’s color is red, orange, gold, yellow. His day is Sunday.
The primary gem for Surya is Ruby, to be worn on the ring finger of the right hand. Alternatively, a good quality garnet can also be worn around the neck. Before wearing gems one should consult a Jyotishi, as wearing the wrong gem can produce unfavorable results.
Solar energy is increased by taking heating spices and herbs like cayenne, black pepper, dry ginger, calamus, saffron, bayberry, cinnamon. Aromatic oils are camphor, cinnamon, eucalyptus and saffron.
