Sun in Scorpio on 16th November, 2013-In Parivartana/ Exchange with Mars and Out of Debilitation

The Vedic Sun moves out of its debilitation in Libra/ Tulā Rāśi/ Tula Rashi and into Scorpio/ Vṛṣcika Rāśi/ Vrishchika Rashi which is a friendly, fire sign/ Agni Tattwa Rashi ruled by Mars.

This also brings about a Parivartana Yoga between the Sun and Mars which coalesces two fiery planets in a common agenda of paving the future with the insights gleaned from deep delving into matters. Fire cuts through the dross and so newer opportunities will be coming forth for some who can then forge new realities with them. Agni Tattwa is replete with cutting intelligence and purity and is known for creation and purification.

On the other hand while debilitated/ Nīca/ Neecha, the Sun was also assailed by the Yuti/ conjunction of Śani and Rāhu/ Shani/ Saturn and Rahu, two dire malefics opposed to the Sun.

Debilitated planets are compelled into humility and being grounded and when this happens to the sun it is a somewhat serious matter.  According to me, it is as simple as coming to understand that the King indicated by the Sun is being made to act like someone in the populace and that too a humble specimen of the populace. He must, like everyone else scratch out his living in the reality of the market-place (Libra/ Tulā Rāśi/ Tula Rashi).

The King by definition is not meant to be less than the King, ever. Something is seriously wrong with the kingdom if the King is not being allowed to be the King. Of course there are so many other ramifications which have been discussed in the paper on the transit debility of the Sun on this website. One facet of the conjunction of the Sun with exalted Saturn is the dominance of the common sentiment and overpowering influences from the deviant, the latter coming from Rāhu/ Rahu who has the duty of eclipsing the luminaries due to an existential animosity.

Since the Sun is the Āditya/ Aditya, the governor of resources, its debilitation in the sign of Libra has been difficult for resources as well and the overall shine in life. People who are strongly influenced by the Sun could have had an acute sense of this although we must be certain that debilitation does not always have adverse financial implications and in some cases the finances can be just as good as when the planets are exalted.

In any case all this is now in the past since on 16th November, 2013 the Sun moves into Scorpio as stated above and while the day of ingress or the Saṅkraṅtī/ Sankranti has its own pressures, generally speaking the Sun in a friendly sign is far better placed than in debility. The transit chart reflecting the solar ingress into Scorpio is given below for ready reference-

We can see that the initiation in Libra continues to be messy and even sordid, with the saving grace that Budha/ Mercury is now direct and the communications snafus which threw a spanner in the works have now abated. Banking instruments were faltering left, right and centre, being returned and demitted for further cross-checking, appending of further details and so on-but this too is now a matter of the past.

What is not a matter of the past though, and continues much into the present is the Graha Dṛṣṭi/ Drishti/ planetary aspect of Rāhu/ Rahu to the Sun. This is a malefic aspect and tries to throw the noose around the neck of the King. But is that all we can say? Not in the least because all that is intellectually original and operates with ten times the thrust is also Rāhu/ Rahu and so from business to power-shifts-this impetus will also come from the shadow planet. 

The one universal behavioural course of action or the remedy as it were is to ensure the soul-level connection with the events and thoughts that transpire and with the inner core of our own being. This is so because the Sun is after all the significator of the soul and in the sign of Scorpio it must dive deep and connect with the mysteries of existence. More immediate and practical inferences will certainly come from the sign positions in a given nativity or Vedic horoscope and the roles that the planets play in the life of that person. 

For example, the transit Moon may be lauded for a variety of reasons but if it happens to be in the 8th House from a sensitive junction like the Udaya Lagna/ Ascendant or the Cañdra/ Chandra Lagna/  Jañma Rāśi/ Janma Rashi, the Maraṇa Kāraka Sthāna/ Marana Karaka Sthana (MKS) effects start to come through and the more terrible recesses of the human mind start to show up. 

Let me also say that for those who are sick and tired of the muck and filth of Adharma, have a great opportunity to move on, especially in context of the journey from misguided intimacy to higher ground. They will be aided in this endeavour.

Maṅgala/ Mangala/ Mars aspects the Sun as its sign dispositor with Graha Dṛṣṭi/ Drishti adding to the exchange which has sealed a bond between the King and his Commander-in-Chief. This will be a highly Karmic transit for the Sun where it is able to tap into the royalty and power of Leo due to the exchange with Mars and also enjoy any number of resources. It both provides and receives from Scorpio.

Leo and Scorpio become extremely energised due to this combination and is these Rāśis/ Rashis are conspicuous in the Lagna chart then such natives can expect interesting events to transpire. The Moon is also in the middle of all sorts of action at this time being in another sign of Mars, Aries and so the mental filters are also passing through initiative and aggression to people with a tinge of the infra-red from Ketu.

Since the Sun is the significator for resources and for the work and profession as well, amongst other planets, this shift entails a major shift in these areas of work, business, service, enterprise and profession as well. Due to the involvement of Leo, we can see fundamentally authoritative and assertive political, governmental and personal entities coming to the fore once again and that too propelled and protected by a none-too-subtle sharp edge to things.

There is a nice balance between desire and ambition on the one hand and the tolerant and striving hunger for wisdom and knowledge which is brought about by the mutual aspects between Gurū/ Guru and Rāhu/ Rahu.
