Sun Sign Astrology vs. Sun in Vedic Astrology

Can someone have too strong of a Sun energy in their chart?

When people refer to “Sun energy” in astrology, they typically talk about the characteristics and traits associated with the Sun sign, representing your core identity and ego. 

Too strong Sun in the Natal Chart can lead to specific challenges or imbalances in a person’s life. For example:

Ego-Centrism: If the Sun energy is powerful in a person’s chart, they may tend to be overly self-centered or egotistical, which can strain relationships with others. 😬

Lack of Flexibility: A person with an overwhelmingly strong Sun sign may have difficulty adapting to new situations or considering perspectives other than their own.

Stubbornness: Strong Sun energy can sometimes manifest as stubbornness, making it challenging for the individual to compromise or change their mind. 😣

Difficulty in Balancing Other Energies: If one’s Sun sign is exceptionally dominant, it may overshadow other important aspects of their personality, making it difficult for them to express other parts of themselves effectively. 🙁

For example, the Sun can have a square with Jupiter, which gives an over-optimistic personality that tends to miss details due to too much optimism. 

Why do Vedic Astrologers consider the Sun also to harm the house or planets it’s sitting close to? 

Also known as Combustion in astrology? 🔥

The Vedic would teach us that all planets are either good (benefic) or malefic (bad). It’s helpful or hurting. 😇😈

The Sun is considered in the middle; it helps but also hurts. We can’t have life on Earth without the Sun. We need the heat, the energy of the Sun to grow. 🌱

But we can see some environments in the world; for example, there are deserts, and nothing grows because the Sun is too hot. Astrology would teach you wherever you see the Sun is, you’ll see where some of your karma is being played out, but more importantly, there’ll be issues in that house.

There’ll be issues, meaning it’s not all good – your focus should go there – part of your energy is there, your public life is there, but there’s also some pain there. They consider the Sun a functioning malefic, meaning it functions in your life and has a purpose, but it can also hurt in some ways. 😥

How does it hurt? Because it burns wherever the Sun sits, it burns some of what that planet represents. If the Sun were sitting next to Venus, they would say it could be rough on the love life because the Sun is burning Venus, and Venus represents relationships. 🔥❤️

So you can get burned in your love life. Sun sitting next to Saturn, Saturn’s career, you could get burned in your career, or Sun in the 9th burned by your gurus. You could get burned by religion. You could get burned by education because that represents the ninth house. So when you’re looking at astrology, in the Western chart, realize that yes, our focus is there, it’s who we are, it’s what we’re growing into, but it’s also the area where some of our hurt and our pain is going to play out.

It’s also an area where struggling or obstacles can be. That’s where the Vedic astrology puts more balance on the Sun. It makes the Sun powerful but shows that it can be sometimes rocky and not always rosy. 🌅🌄
