Sun- the king of the stars

In Vedic astrology, Sun is considered as the 'king of the stars'. Sun or Surya, according to Hindu mythology, was born to sage Kashyap and Aditi. Also acknowledged as one of the eight forms of Lord Shiva, the Sun is deemed as the lord of excellence and wisdom.

In Hindu mythology, the description of Sun is as given below:

The Sun or 'Surya' moves in a chariot drawn by seven horses, which represent the seven rays of light. Even music has its scale of seven. Matter from the sky to earth is also considered to be of seven densities. The Solar system floats amid the seven Lokas, the seven planes of consciousness. There are seven days in the Hindu calendar representing the seven planets named in the Solar system. The wheel of Sun's chariot represents the year and its twelve spokes are the twelve months. The Sun is short in stature, and has a prominent, shining appearance, has two arms, a curly mane of hair and shining, golden-brown eyes that are the exact colour of honey. His mind is incisive and His complexion coppery or golden, and He wears clothes of dark saffron. In both His hands, Surya has two red lotuses.

In a horoscope, Sun is the Lord of the zodiac sign Leo, exalted on Aries, debilitated on Libra and Moon, Mars and Jupiter are Sun???s friend, and Saturn, Venus, Rahu & Ketu are Sun???s enemies. Mercury is considered to be neutral.
