Sun rules the powerful Zodiac sign of Leo, the lion.

Sun is exalted (most strong) in Aries. Aries is represented by a ram, an animal that can climb into places other animals cannot get into. Tamil New Year is celebrated in April when the Sun enters Aries.

Sun is debilitated (least comfortable) in Libra. Libra is represented by balance scales. The Sun gives away freely and feels constrained by the energy of “measuring out”.

The Sun changes Zodiac signs each month in the middle of the month. Each sign is 30 degrees, and he moves about 1 degree each day.

The Sun rules 3 stars:
  • Krittika
  • Uttara Phalguni
  • Uttara Ashada
The Sun rules Sunday. 

Simple mantra for the Sun: Om Suryaya Namaha
