Free Vedic astrology article on astrology, planets, horoscopes and remedies
It is quite likely that in any horoscope one or more planets will be placed in houses where they do not give favorable results. The degree of the adverse results will depend upon the strength of a planet and the houses owned by it. In this article we shall take a look at Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu, and discuss appropriate remedial measures.
Sun becomes Neech (loses his goodness) in Libra and if this situation is not canceled by other planets, it can cause diverse problems.
Sun is the significator of father, soul, warrior, right eye, digestion and heart. He also represents the ruler and the ruling class. All of these suffer to varying extents by the weakness of Sun. Weak Sun causes weak eyesight in the right eye. The digestion is poor and the emergence of high cholesterol in mid life is high. Weakness of Sun can reduce the happiness from father. It can be due to separation from him either physically or mentally. If the ninth house lord is also afflicted by malefic planets, this can cause severe health problems to father. A person with weak Sun does not show any capacity to fight. He chooses the easy way out of any conflict. The spiritual strength of such a person is low. Weakness of Sun also manifests as losses due to the government. Since Sun represents bones, its weakness causes brittle bones which snap easily.
The situation is compounded if Rahu and Saturn who are enemies of Sun influence him, either singly or together. Placement of Sun in the eighth or twelfth house will increase the unfavorable results even further.
As for all planets the remedial measures for Sun revolve around Mantra, fasting, use of metal connected to Sun, gemstone and donation.
There are a number of Stotra and Mantras which reduce the problems connected to Sun. Here is a list. Choose the one which attracts you most.
