Surya – The Sun
“Honey-yellow eyed is the Sun, square and radiantly pure, O’ Twice Born, of Pitta nature, intelligent, masculine, with but little hair, O’ Twice Born.”
The Honey yellow eyes of the Sun are what allow us to see into our life and illuminate our path. The masculine nature of the Sun refers to our infinite and deeper power in life. As such the Sun is the archetypical masculine force in the universe. The qualities of the Sun are also the qualities of masculine energy. His square body shows a forbearance and consistency that will not be deterred or distracted. The square is a structure of power upon which other objects can be placed and supported. As such, the Sun is the power and support of the whole chart and of our life. His pitta (fiery) the nature will shows forward motion and the directness of approach, as well as courage and confidence to carry the heavy burdens in life and meet our deeper responsibilities. A good king is not interested in getting rich off of his subjects, he is interested in protecting them and advancing the larger vision of the kingdom so all can prosper. A good king will have the vision to see what is best for the long term good, which means sometimes a short-term goal may need to sacrificed. A king not able to do this will be more like a dictator, getting rich off his kingdom, more interested in short term pleasure, and leading through domination, not through empowering others. The intelligent nature of the Sun shows a reliance on the intellect and the inspired quality of the mind. These are all attributes of positive masculine psychology, which becomes very important in relationship Astrology as well as in assessing the general capacity of each person to express masculine qualities. Both men and women will benefit from a powerfully expressed Sun, yet it will be man who more powerfully identify of with the Sun.
