Therefore, when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light;

but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.

Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness."

Bhagya Surya svabhava = radiates charming, brilliant (Surya ) personal charisma [Surya] in political, royal, entertainment, dramatic, and speculative-intelligence performance roles.

Adores the game of politics

Father in politics, drama, celebrity and regal roles, entertainment, gambling, speculative finance, entitlement

  • Annunciation 1452-1519 logic Leonardo daVinci [calculating-strategic Bharani-2] LdV was the son of a gentlemanly contract lawyer [notary] who worked in the aristocratic courts of Tuscany. Dad's political [5] connections helped Leonardo to work his way through the patronage system. Dad bought Leonardo's first atelier, and dad arranged for letters of introduction to precede his son's arrival in the princely courts. Being an obvious genius,[5] LdV usually received a warm welcome.

  • Formula One 1980-2013 test driver Maria de Villota + [Kuja-yuti-Guru] Dad was a notable FoMūla-1 racer, Emilio de Villota. Rahu + Guru + Mangala in her dharmabhava + Surya Dharmesha-9 and pitrikaraka in her lagna show the outstanding influence of her father in her life.

Dad's career = 10th-from-Surya-5 = finance

  • Annunciation 1452-1519 logic Leonardo daVinci [calculating-ministering Bharani-2] 10th-from-Surya-Mesha-5 = Makara-2. Ruler of Makara-2 = Shani-10. Dad held an entitled and highly responsible position as a financial contract broker for the princely courts of Tuscany.

Unless there is some distinguished graha in karma-sthāna-10, the career tends to endure some animosity and unexpected changes, because 10 is 6/8-from the brilliantly intelligence, gambling, idealistic Surya-5.

If some other factors such as Shani in lagna might resist taking social positions of central importance, the native will nonetheless provide important commentary upon the politics of the day.

Naturally seeks center-of-the-center roles.

kingship, theatre, celebrity,

Speculative finance, gambling, gaming

seeks creative roles and the brilliant lights of the theatrical stage.


political elections being chosen

celebrated figure enacting genius + literary-artistic intelligence

children and fashion

performance arts

Drama of theatrical costume and fashionable appearances

Political Rights and Entitlements

creative, center-stage specialties include:

performer, gamer, gambler, procreator, prize-winner


Also may be a literary genius, with a bright radiant energy of personal drama


  • A Room of One's Own 1882-1941 Bloomsbury Virginia Woolf + [financial-heritage Śrāvaṇa-2] [Dhanistha-Budha-yuti-Shukra-Vaisva] VSW was a brightly confident exponent of women's rights [Surya] including financial independence [Shukra] and political suffrage [Surya]. VSW lectured on women's independence at venues throughout London, and at universities throughout southeast England. The celebrated text, A Room of One's Own = a collection of her university talks, VSW asserts that in order to write fiction, awoman must have her own room [Surya own] and her own money [Surya-yuti-Shukra].

The universe seems to revolve around oneself when the native occupies the dramatic center of :

exciting, brilliant drama of games-based behaviors , matters of politics, theatre, speculation, royal court, fashion, celebrity, the heart, literature, poetry, performance art, the spouses of one's friends, romantic idealism, the enemies of meditation, delightful parties and amusements, the fruits of marriage, children , and the genius of Divine Intelligence

Whether more specialized toward politics, theatre, children, speculation, or literary arts depends upon rashi, drishti, and co-tenants of bhava-5.

May lack empathy due to the self-reflexive perception that one is always in the center.

Professor Surya's hot, dry energy in bhava-5 'burns up' wet, reproductive fertility and limits the number of children.

Surya; hot and dry. These are antithetical energies for somatic fertility but excellent energy for intellectual creativity.

If only Surya occupies 5 with no other yuti graha, one may be choose to produce children of the mind in preference to producing children of the flesh. Powerful Professor Surya -5 may be effusively productive of those 'children of the intelligence' which include poems, great political speeches, brilliant performances, books, paintings, theatrical scripts, and splendid celebrity fashion.

If children arrive due to a strong drishti of Brihaspati upon putra bhava, or due to the presence of additional procreative graha in 5, these offspring may be largely raised by other caretakers (nanny, naurse, governess et cetera).

Frequent separation from children during Surya 's bhukti .

Seeks celebrity from political and dramatic roles.

Often the children are willful and independent; little benefit is gained from the gamble in living creatures. Children if any are typically different looking from the parent * especially from the father * as Surya-5 grants children a high degree of personal uniqueness. It is perhaps more common to have adopted children with their greater freedom to be unique, than natural children who tend to conform [Shani] more to the parent's inclinations.

Friendly vriddhi-pati-11 in creative, center-stage bhava-5 needs a great deal of attention with applause from their friends , for which they perform with high levels of charismatic skill.

Splendid placement for

politicians, speculators, gamesmen, and theatrical performers of all stripes.

A gifted game-player and often a celebrity teacher-actor of the amuse-the-students type. Never a disciplinarian [Shani]; always a charmer.

  • Autobiography of a Yogi 1893-1952 Swami Yogananda [balancing-arranging Pūrvāṣāḍhā-3] [navamsha Surya-Tula-nicha] [Surya-yuti-Budha]

If the rashi is supportive with good drishti, grows financially privileged by market speculation and varieties of gambling. Creative, literary personality.

Romantic poetic nature much heightened.

Radiates a charming, center-stage personality associated with amusements, poetry, fashion, brilliant performance, empowerment, admiration and praise-praise-praise.

One seeks praise and recognition for engagement with children, one's own creative or political performance (particularly in speculation and games), and the performance of the children.

Professor Surya teaching in classroom-5 is not conducive to children, but drishti of Guru into putra-putriki bhava can bring them. If there are children for the native, kids may be gifted stage performers. Native may use the children as an instrumental means of calling attention to oneself.

Psychically intolerant of standardized, repetitive processes. Demands entertainments and innovation. Unconventional performance style, if excessive, can be arrogant. Likes to have fun. If less evolved, may have fun at another's expense. Narcissistic tendencies.

[Surya-Meena] [5] karmesha = a recognized, respected, politician speculator displayer

  • POTUS-pair-37 Watergate 1912-1993 Pat Ryan Nixon [political-demonstrating Andromeda-1] + [nicha-asta-Revati-Budha-yuti-Surya-Andromeda] Surya-5 karmesha = reputation for speculative intelligence, gambling, gaming. PRN's speculator father's tried silver mining and other gambles, but they failed one after the next. Budha ruling earnings is double-deficit both asta and nicha. For most of PRN's life her dad was increasingly sick with miner's lung disease, and the family endured low resources. PRN married a man also obsessed with Big Wins in party-politics, election campaigns, and other speculative games.

Proportional to the strength of Surya

  • one takes a place in the center of attention .

  • a solipsist.

Without realizing it, the native is exceptionally self-centered. High levels of creative intelligence but frequently paired with lack of interpersonal empathy.

  • Natural presumption of royal entitlements.

  • pursuit of celebrity, political glory, or fame.

Surya's vibrant heat-wave burns up Chandra's luscious, cool, sheltered procreativity. Whole or partial sterility for Surya in rashi of Guru, Kuja, surya; to the extreme point of denying children completely. Unless Guru casts drishti upon bhava-5, there may be few or no children. Surya in a hot rashi such as Mesha, simha or Dhanau, loves kids but is more likely to have adopted children.

Social identification with children and children's political issues. Tendency to develop some variety of messiah-complex especially in regard to matters of children and fostering their creativity.

  • radiates authorship, creativity and (usually) amusement to the audience

Guru drishti to bhava-5 can bring children, albeit with complications and delays should there be a difficult graha residing in bhava-5.

However, if burning-hot arid Surya occupies putra bhava lacking the ray of Vrihaspati, and no compensating drishti from Guru upon Chandra is available, the native will be childless, typically biologically sterile and preference may be to express the native intelligence via creative literature or performance -- exempli gratia, teaching) rather than to adopt.

If drishti from Rahu, the native will be a gambler. Great position for politics, especially in hospitable rashi.


tremendously idealizing love of children and ability to channel divine intelligence into the world of children. Splendid and creative teacher of youth.

If approval is not forthcoming from the father, the native does not feel approved by the divine.

This one is capable of channeling a powerful volume of divine intelligence .

Yet, if Surya is too hot, there is karako bhavo nashto in regard to the father as dominating ego-king of the family.

If Surya is too strong, the father may have such a large ego-membrane that the native feels one can never fulfill the idealistic expectations of the father, and the native must always "perform" in order to receive approval. May become addicted to the applause of the crowd as a substitute for paternal approval.

Karaka for great success in politics and entertainment, driven in part by the native 's compensatory need for applause at political and theatrical performances.

he ego-membrane can block direct apprehension of divine approval and One may suffer addiction to human approval. Or when the graha in bhava-9 are highly benevolent

and the two bhagya houses are related, demanding father-guru figures may be the motivating force behind enormous stage presence in religious discussion and debate.

  • Autobiography of a Yogi 1893-1952 Swami Yogananda

Agents of approval, admiration, applause = the Father and the Divine.

theatrical performance, self-focused entertainments, being at the center of games and amusements = the primary means of gaining ego-validation, attention and approval.


Surya, being extremely self-centered, is not the most favorable influence to have in the house of children.

If putra-putriki bhava-5 enjoys incoming drishti of Guru, or if vidya-pati-5 occupies 9, or if Budha occupies 5 along with Surya; in a favorable rashi, then opportunities are increased to reproduce or to acquire children through adoption.

Even if children are made manifest, the native will fundamentally perceive the children as an expression first and foremost of one's own self. One may idealize one's children (which is certainly hard on the children) and expect them to carry out one's one ego-membrane programme.

  • Autobiography of a Yogi 1893-1952 Swami Yogananda * celibate monk, no Guru drishti to 5+ vidya-pati-5 Guru in 8

In Surya's svabhava Bhava 5

In the center of all things romantic = lovers, poetry, drama, literature, gambling, and children. Brilliant political intelligence.

The svabhava setting benefits Surya. Yet, the blinding bright ego-membrane needs to be in the center of love, attracting applause, radiating fame and attention for creativity and charm.

Fame is often confused with love. One may seem childlike, able to receive infinite loving attentions but unable to return the same except in bursts of romantic inspiration - ideally, when the audience is watching! This love isn't really suited to boring, predictable, long-term adult relationships but rather to arts, theatre, literature, drama, fashion, and the royal court.

Children may become an idealized extension of the Self. Asserting the perfect divine identity of one's children can result in the native being unable to accept their children as real humans, and even forbid their children from experiencing conformity or failure. Children of the native with Surya-5 must be"special" "brilliant" "chosen" .

The parent with Surya-5 may be both unduly demanding and over-protective of their offspring. However, such a parent is naturally a politician or dramatist and will be quite happy if the child also develops into a politician or dramatist.

Romantic interests are also held to a divine standard, which can block the unfoldment of love and marriage in the realistic context of earthly [Shani] partnerships [Shukra]. Shukra and Shani are Naturally, the permanent enemies of Surya.

Good for career in speculative activities such as gambling on new business ventures, casino and theatre business, stock market.

Also benefits the mature native who teaches in settings which hold the students to a higher standard of individual intelligence and creativity. Generally However, arather solipsistic individual who struggles to share credit for one's achievements and who craves the kingly, center-stage position in brightly lighted environments.

QUOTATION Das / Behari commentary WRT Surya-5

" ... a strong placement ... It focuses the intelligence more on learning than material gathering.

Usually this limits or denies children .

This is favorable for becoming a spiritualist and teaching same.

  • Idealistic tendencies may surface.

  • Sharp intellect, even cruelty t o opponents may manifest.

  • You may be inclined to study philosophy, alchemy, astrology, etc.

The Sun works on the consciousness aspect of life rather than on matter or form.

  • Thus it ordinarily bestows only one son and does not help to make the individual rich.

  • It will, however, make him intellectually bright.

  • You may suffer on account of your first born son.

  • Your mind is sharp.

You are sometimes manipulative of others , and you enjoy amassing money . This is favorable for all matters of enterprising nature.

The speculative interests are very keen and the capacity for enjoyment, very great .

Children are harmed by the Sun in the 5th.

  • Either abortions, early loss, or problems from them arise.

  • The exact type is not sure, but that some harm or trouble from or to the children is indicated by this Sun, so beware accordingly.

Also, you like to roam in forests and hills, and your mind is very good, though you use it sometimes to cheat others.

This Sun is good for learning.

Second marriage is partially indicated by this placement also."
