Sparkling Surya occupies svabhava of Ravi's good friend Mangala radiates moving, hot-blooded (Kuja) personal charisma(Surya) into dramatic iconic roles which produce:

  • socially significant attributes

  • Swift and Brilliant movement. dynamic brilliance

  • vitality, certainty, authority, personal integrity and confidence

  • entitlement, dramatic glamour, splendor, royalty, celebrity, aristocracy, sparkle, golden ornaments

  • Hunter, dancer, athlete, warrior ,

  • Innovation, uniqueness, creativity, ingenuity

  • center-stage performer, iconic representative of a social movement, a commercial product, an ideology, or an art form.

Exhilarated by politics and political theatre.

Tendency toward vividly extreme solipsism.

May see oneself as a brightly righteous Father Figure

Due to the fierce brightness of this ego, Self-referential Surya may suffer from an inability to share (anti-Zukra) another's vision or see other's point of view

However, if Surya accepts any drishti from Shani that shadow from Shani is likely to reduce the solipsism and expose the reality (Shani) of the viewpoints of others.

Radiates physical body activity, appearance attributes and the socially significant meaning of the physical attributes

Center-stage actor, materializer, pursuer of attention (or notoriety).

Exceptionally innovative, creative, confident, and intensely self-focused.

an iconic, charismatic personality who represents a nation, a movement, a generation, an institution, a corporation, a genre, or a brilliant idea

self-appropriated intellectual (Surya) authority

  • Waste Land 1888-1965 publisher T.S. Eliot literary criticism

self-designated entitlements of royalty and political celebrity

a confident genius in competitive battle

splendid theatrical performers who sparkle in the limelight

  • choreographer Martha Graham

less limelight-loving if Ravi accepts drishti from cold, dark Shani

Even the most disabled nichha-Surya will gain dignity in Tanu bhava

Often the Surya-Thula-1 attains glory via nichha-bhanga .

Sparkling Surya occupies 1 focuses a spotlight of attention upon the physical body attributes and the social significance of those attributes. Grants charisma and brightness .

In the nativity of a public figure, Surya occupies 1 contributes to the Cult of Personality. Even a non-celebrity will presume that others are naturally inclined to orbit around the Surya-rising native.

Splendid Surya occupies Mesha lagna = a hero , a savior, a rescuer , a redeemer.

  • Identifies with environments distinguished by weapons, conquest, metals, fire and flame, combustion engines.

  • Will not accept military discipline unless Shani is strong. Must be an independent hero such as an emergency responder.

  • This one seeks the glory of championship .

One finds a central position in the drama of body-based behaviors , matters of shells and coverings, appearances and significations of physical attributes.

One is persistently self-assertive - particularly if Ravi yuti Kuja. As a result, the native may have polarizing catalysis cooperating with others.

Unless Shani constrains the brilliant, self-defining Surya-1, one prefers to be accountable to no human - only to the Divine.

Within the limits of one's own field of perception, one has no equal.

Marriage and other equal-to-equal partnerships suffer the consequences of one's own entitlement to self-interested centrality in all things. (However, Marriage is much eased if yuvati-pati-7 shares the lagna with center-stage Surya.)

Best results when this independent minded person is not constrained by Shani-type structure within a large organization

likes political campaigns but generally Surya-1 is self-radiating is not suited for institutionally distributed governance roles

Happiest when self-employed.

Excellent for the commercial sole proprietor or visionary entrepreneur, the creative director or inventor, the politician or the principal of a self-owned enterprise.

a gifted but willful dramatic actor; a tyrannical perhaps but brilliant theatrical director;

splendid placement for a relentlessly confident, divinely approved emperor or monarch.

Does well when wielding authority in independent roles that are specifically not locked into a Shani-style common-law hierarchy. In matters of rank, one prefers to be at the center-top, or at the creative, law-challenging margins.

A celebrated, royal, authoritative, charismatic personality, with radiant ability to channel divine intelligence.

However, the channel used to reveal the intelligence is the ego (Surya). One must possess considerable awareness of one's impact upon others, in order to become a force for the good.

Tendency to disregard and dominate with no malice aforethought. One may err when blinded by one's own light.

Despite providing a positive, entertaining influence in one's home and work environment, the native may be disliked due to a characteristic inability to recognize the importance of others.

The spouse may grow resentful and the co-workers may complain of the native assuming personal credit for achievements earned by the team.

One who is not self-employed may find that even with sharp skills, one must often change jobs. the native, whose self-concept is of a beneficent and caring king or queen, is often bewildered by complaints against one.

Self-referential Surya seeks praise and recognition for the regal qualities of one's appearance. Generally becomes a famous icon of some sort. May be a bit vain.

Bright, independent, must have things done in one's own way. If one matures morally and emotionally, the personality becomes fully integrated with highest creativity, compassionate action. Otherwise, may become extremely selfish or sulk when the self-directive is not successful. Not a team player.

  • A favored son or daughter .

  • Often the Apple of the Parental Eye * especially a favorite of the father.

'Burns up' the physical body with pitta dosha. Digestion is overheated. The complexion gains a bright, golden cast.

Requires broad recognition , and usually receives it abundantly. Surya casts drishti upon bhava-7 giving the spouse a similar selfishness.

The marital partners will prosper when they remain mutually independent in their actions, each seeking their own personal satisfaction with a self-directed agenda.

Good for a professional marriage with each spouse having his-her own means of income and professional skills. One will not easily share resources with the spouse; little mercy for weakness of the spouse. one is self-identified and not good at sharing. Me-first.

Weakness when manageable presents opportunities for growth.

Splendid, sparkling Surya-karaka in bhava-1 = Father

Father holds a physically visible position due to brilliant body-personality attributes(1) and is known to his society at large in an icon of virtue.

Father may be a dramatic actor, politician, or other center-stage personality

Whether his activities are positive or negative depends upon the lagnesha and its angle to Surya-1.

Has a powerfully definitive effect on the personality development and social identity.

Seeks honor and regard in glamorous central positions, but is challenged to share glory and power.

Surya occupies either Simha lagna or Mesha lagna may display a breathtaking sense of personal entitlement.

Ravi-Mesha can be truly heroic, often a rescuer or noble agent willing to offer one's very life for glory. Excellent in military, as a fame warrior .

The behavioral style = solipsistic, and the leadership methods tend toward imperious .

  • one's social attitude may be perceived as adolescently fame-seeking rather than socially responsible.

Bewildering to the native as it may be, the great hero who sees oneself as risking one's own life for the glory of the nation may be perceived as being more accurately motivated by the glory of self.

Characteristically seeks the 'lion's share' of attention for oneself. May be shocked to discover that this self-referential inability to share the glory produces not continuous praise but rather increasing resentment.

A very strong Surya occupies the Simha (or Meza) radical lagna = magnificent stage performer or military general.

Self-focused Surya who may suffer an inability to manage power-sharing. Not suited to equal to equal relationships. Radiant Ravi may exhibit not "All for one and One for all" (Dumas, Three Musketeers)

... but rather "All for One and... All for One".

In Mesha in particular Surya-1's worldview can be strikingly self-referential- even while one is busy with self-perceived good works.

Surya occupies Simha lagna due to Shani lord of kalatra bhava must marry an elder, experienced, practical and socially networked spouse (France-Emperor 1769-1821 Wars Bonaparte 's Josephine).Adjust this prognosis according to the 7th navamsha.

If Ravi occupies a kendra from lagna,

Surya the Sparkling Center may be admired for creative leadership. Radiant confidence. Burning bright like a leader torch. Can lead charismatically even when others have lost hope

Prosperity in fields where independent decision-making and self-confidence are valued.

Surya-1 usually puts some unique twist on career, and may ignore the social ranking divisions race, class, or gender convention(Shani) via personal charisma that is strong enough to claim a position usually reserved for another group.

If Kuja is favorable, pioneering success in politics and military professions.

Surya-1 may be incapable of imagining that one's own decisions could ever be anything less than completely right. If not appreciated in love or work, one will look elsewhere for the attention one craves.


Surya-1 produces an intensely bright self-focus. This self-referential radiance can impede the ability to see another person independently of the Light one shines upon them,

Unless there are light-buffering compensations within the nativity, Surya-1 may become a challenging position for marriage.

Bhava-1 = self, personality, uniqueness, and it can become azone of narcissistic anxiety if Surya-1 becomes excessively self-identified with the social-material personality.

Surya-1 casts a bright aura into one's environment but ego-satisfaction is generally obtained via a Surya-style one-to-many relationship with the audience, rather than a Zukra-style one-to-one relationship with a significant Other.

If Surya receives Drishti from Shani there is less solipsism and more social responsibility.

However, in general the native will derive one's primary identify from the applause generates by acts of political or artistic creativity; the spouse is an appendage.

Surya-1 generally cannot tolerate anyone or anything which threatens to block their light. Should the spouse be perceived as limiting one's ability to send light into the audience, marriage may be short-lived.

Handsome, striking, golden appearance - especially if Surya occupies a friendly rashi.

Bright aura if Surya is favorable; exaggerated ego-membrane if not.

Surya-1 strives to maintain a radiant appearance. One frequently cultivates the health and beauty practices, including cosmetic surgeries, diets, hatha yoga etc. which help achieve positive social recognition of the individual physical body.

Beneficial for career in modeling, athletics, entertainment, or as an iconic representative of a social organization or a nation-state.

Believes oneself to be a royal personage. High entitlements to claim the public attention.

Tendency toward narcissistic anxiety and pronounced selfishness. Surya may be unable to acknowledge the supporting social structures and resources given by others which have created their individual success.

Mythology of the self-made man. One's own beliefs may be so powerful that one is unable to experience the truth of others.

If Zukra also in lagna, Surya = dramatically influential, successful in diplomatic tasks, and brightly attractive.

Exception = Simha lagna and Mesha lagna, where Surya burns up the beauty of Zukra leaving only sensual desire. move

QUOTATION from Das / Behari re: Surya-1

"Invincible in your approach to life.

  • Mathematical genius and a superb philosopher;

famous but not often happy.

A habitual wanderer

  • and will seldom be able to live in peace with your spouse.

There will be very few people who can establish harmonious partnerships with you."
