center of dramatic conflicts
theatrical, high-ego, attention-getting complaints
splendid placement for the charismatic politics of medicine, criminalization / crime, litigation, war , disagreement, disgust, addiction, poverty, animosity, pollution, servitude and enslavement
Pitrikaraka Surya in bhava-6= father-figures, patrons
= kings, overlords, supervisors, male authorities in general, political agents, celebrity males, aristocratic males = behave in ways that are imbalanced, exploitive, blaming, accusatory, toxic, adversarial, dominating, bullying, diseased, abusive, conflicted
Conditions of 6 involve assistance, service aid, subordinate roles, medication, remedies for injury, military, disenfrancisement, unfair arrangements, betrayal of promise
Radiant Ravi expresses insuppressable confidence in one's ability to use the power of intellect and political charm to resolve the arguments of the maha-dusthamasha, in which many factors are in complex conflict.
Those who are expected to behave in a noble [Surya] and glorious [Surya] fashion often fail to be worthy of trust = 12th-from-yuvatisthana = dissolution of trust. Instead these figures may become devious exploiters, polluted in their motivation, and possibly criminal in their actions.
Dad may be a physician or military officer, criminal attorney, aid to the suffering, or agent of a ministry of service. on behalf of the sick or the poor.
Dad may be a narcissist hiding behind a military uniform or a medical license.
ONLY for Surya-6 = 8th-from-Surya = the indriya-lagna, identity
Even with positive service indication, father may be often ill, impoverished, betrayed, addicted, unfair, predator of the weak despite stated intention to serve, accusing toward the native. Father may seem like a victim or a victimizer.
Professor Surya in bhava-6 Father may experience failures, poverty, illness
[Surya-Meena] karmesha = a recognized, respected, professional servant
Dad may be ill or addicted, broken trust with father, paternal agent is exploited or exploiter, a servant or a slave-master, abused or abuser, criminal or cop.
Father may be adversarial, intimidating, or cheating. Often the father is simply diseased or addicted. Nature of the disease seen via rashi + drishti.
If conscious, father may have a professionalized ministry of service as licensed social worker, trained and effective medicating physician, or educated military officer who can reduce casualty by skillful battle plans.
Males in the life-script tend to be either egoistic exploiters, addicts, or medical-remediating-military professionals. Much depends on Surya's rashi, ruler, and incoming drishti
Professor Surya-6 instructs from His lectern at the center of conflict-drama environment.
Central, radiant, attention-getting roles in war, accusations, argumentation, medicine, health treatments, poverty, pollution, divorce, exploitation, mother's relatives, ministries of service.
Beneficial placement for professional service in pharmacy, usury, and all species of crime.
In a svabhava of argumentative Budha, the classroom of Professor Surya-6 favors clinical work with high-frequency repetition of the narratives of illness, poverty, animosity, servitude, accusation, and their proposed remedies.
Supportive placement for military, medicine, criminal law, work in clerical and human services professions.
Dad may hold a position which represents or manages conflict, controversy, addictions, exploitation, accusations, litigation, pollution, servitude, drugs, medical service, military service, or father is a victim of these imbalances-seeking-a-remedy.
Dad may have an adversarial character, or himself be ill - mentally or physically. Dad may be involved in criminal, controversial, conflicted, or illic circumstances.
Most vivid iniquity usually when Surya occupies Tula [neechcha] or Kumbha.
Splendid placement for military drama. Surya-6 often gains attention via war activities
Also auspicious for health-care, social work, physicians
Suitable placement for success in roles such as criminal attorney, litigant, pollution-fighter, noble accuser, and social conflict professionals
Surya in a svabhava of Ravi's neutral Budha radiates detailed, descriptive, mentalized [Budha] personal charisma [Surya] in the ministerial service agencies of
creative, center-stage behaviors in roles such as
The universe seems to revolve around oneself when the native occupies the dramatic center of : core problematics in human life:
conflict, war, medicine, illness, servitude, divorce
ministries of service, all of the repeating problems of human life, inequity and disenfranchisement, dispossessed persons,
Whether more specialized toward medicine , loan-making, litigation or other types of exploitation depends upon rashi, drishti, and co-tenants of classroom-6.
Surya in Ari Bhava is a tricky position. Because graha in 6 have the pre-incarnationally planned character of needing to engage in logical argumentation , litigation, accusations, and unresolvable problematics, Surya-6 requires maturity and self-knowledge.
With sufficient awareness of the impact which one's decisions and actions do have upon the well-being of others, Surya-6 is well placed to serve.
Following the dictum that a challenging graha provides best results in a challenging dusthamsha, most commentators opine that Surya in bhava-6 is a supportive placement. Generally, Surya-6 flourishes in high-conflict environments that are professionally managed such as professional medicine, professional military, and professional ministries of social service.
However, it is essential to curb the classic solipsism of any Surya placement. Otherwise, one may incur resentment for ego-membrane inflation displayed in environments which are dedicated to serve those persisting in a victim state such as the poor, the enslaved, the polluted, the ailing, and the accused..
The default result of Surya-6 can be insensitivity to the plight of others who are suffering. Naturally, one trained in a profession that serves the classes of bhava-6 is exposed to vast repetition of the conditions of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy and one may become inured to the suffering.
Nevertheless, Surya's inherent selfishness can become an unrecognized culprit in exacerbating whatever already painful conditions of animosity and illness may be present in one's life. Matters of the bhava which is owned by Surya may suffer from involvement with the 6-narratives of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy, exploitation, jealousy and greed.
However, at a higher consciousness, Professor Surya-6 may be a brilliant manager (not corrector) of problems related to expressions of creative intelligence, politics, theatre and entertainment, games, and performance art.
Surya-in bhava-6 is often beset by dramatic conflicts. Yet, the outcome may favorable overall, particularly if Surya is an auspicious bhavapathi
One finds a central position in the drama of service-based behaviors , matters of medicines , illness, military policing and war (General George Patton ), exploitation, poverty and loans, argumentation, divorce, litigation, pollution, toxicity, disagreement, corruption, bribery, financial scandal.
Opportunistic, unsentimental; may confidently exploit others for personal gain. Malefic graha in dushthamsha have material benefits because they energize an interior narrative that argues for "problematicity" in the lives of victims.
One is aware (Surya, light) of the self-exploiting expectations of the victim-mind; one wastes no time in sentimental fantasies. Must be cautious of a tendency to dehumanize the labor of others, and some proclivity to view people as inhuman objects or calculable resources.
Naturally, there are further graha in operation, so having Surya- Bhava-6 is not necessarily indicative of personal involvement in litigation, accusation, pollution, toxicity, crime etc.
Rather, one's intimacy with the divine may be perceived to be at a low ebb due to an environment which features significant and characteristic blaming-shaming, betrayal of promises (to self and others) and unfair contract imbalance-seeking-a-remedy. Surya-6 rarely leads to real infamy. Yet one may acquire enemies via gross selfishness and materialism. Should there be defamatory lawsuits, Surya-6 typically wins due to its personal charisma among the blamers.
If in a friendly Rashi and in good planetary company, Surya in classroom-06= medical doctor , especially the charismatic central personality of a medical practice.
Capable of handling emotionally painful or horrifying material because one is quite detached from it. Can be a gifted researchers of animal behaviors or human emotions; but if neutrality is excessive, can be dehumanizing and cruel.
Dignified malefics in Roga-bhava-6 = indicators of success in the clinical medical profession, with patients drawn from among all social classes but particularly the ever-accusing 'victim class' and the poor.
One seeks praise and recognition for human services ministry, iconic servitude and exploitation and for one's argumentative, problematizing skills
healing plant of Surya, the Helichrysum sunflower
Depending largely on the bhava which is ruled by male-karaka Professor Surya, one may be predisposed to be exploited by males . One may experience being pressed into service by husband, father, uncle, or grandfather.
(But not brothers generally, since brothers = Mangala, sometimes Budha.)
Surya-6 may indicate that the health is afflicted by the extremely hot and dry energetic effects of Surya. Particularly Surya-6 suggesting a pitta-dosha may indicate health settings of father, grandfathers, and even uncles, male teachers, military commanding officers, superiors such as bosses.
Ego-identification with conflict, with homework-problems, with arguments, with illness, with imbalance-seeking-a-remedy of all kinds. The male figures may behave in ways that seem self-righteously aggrievedr.
One may feel victimized or wronged by the father or father-figure, by the male line in one's family, by moral authorities, by male servants, by the heart and spine in the physical body, by the right eye, or by ethical principles misapplied.
Tendency to misappropriate or steal items related to games, creative endeavors, glamorous or special-event costumes and other theatrical implements. May mis-spend speculative profitsr.
Some tendency toward petty thievery due to bhava-6 = loss of social agreement. Surya may steal (often inadvertently or unintentionally) items for theatrical performance (settings, costumes); political items, demonstrations of individual genius and creativity, games and game-pieces, royal items.

when properly prepared, becomes an antidote for ailments of skin [Kumbha]
Surya in dusthamsha (6, 8, 12) = unfortunate for the father, making him argumentative or confrontational by character and prone to blaming others for his own faults.
The father may be ill or be a physician, be indebted or be a loan-maker, be a victim of war or be a military officer.
Father may be employed in the professional military (6), and if Surya is well placed his career in matters of war and conflict may be successful.
For a female, the men in her life primarily father but also husband and brothers, also male coworkers and boss, demonstrate some of the adversarial, warlike, inability to accept terms of contract or remain in a state of trust within relationships due to ego-membrane imbalance-seeking-a-remedy.
Exceptions which give improved results for the father
Surya in Bhava 6
Professor Surya's classroom succeeds in delivering important instruction when located in dushthamsha 6, 8, and 12. The lessons elucidate the role of unique personal identity and intelligence when situated in environments of crime, war, medicine, conflict, accusations, pollution, exploitation (6) disasters and hidden resources (8) or sanctuary, prison, loss of identity (12).
Professor Surya can also utilize the upachaya improving with time * environments of bhava 3, 6, and 11. He takes in these locations a central role in business administration or writing (3) imbalance-seeking-a-remedy (6) or social networking (11) - albeit the 11th sthāna is somewhat less productive as the communal svabhava of Shani is a hostile environment for self-central Surya..
Surya contributes to ego-ization and romanticization of one's own central role in regard to the conflicts and confrontations inherent in bhava-6.
While the mother's siblings may be problematic, Ravi-6 benefits the dramatization of social and physical chaos.
Splendid location for medical doctors, pharmacists, health care practitioners, social workers, and scientists dealing with pollution or crime.
The chronic social complaints - crime, disease-discomfort, hatred, caste bigotry, jealousy, poverty - may not disappear in the life of the native. Still, Surya-6 has an intelligent, charmingly dramatic approach to these perpetual evils.
Such earnest charisma often leads to a good career in medicine, criminal law, social work, military officer, or loan banking.
" When the Sun is in the house of diseases, joined and aspected by malefics,
due to excitement or pitta or bile ."
Portland Oregon, 2012 by Pat Rose photography
QUOTATION Das / Behari commentary WRT Surya in satkona
" The Sun produces a very deep-rooted impact. It destroys all impediments to the flowering of your innermost uniqueness.
From an ordinary point of view, this may seem to be a destruction of physical and social barriers.
But this placement enables you to achieve victory over enemies, a successful termination of litigation and disputes , and effective solutions to financial difficulties.
With this combination, a very enigmatic situation arises: people at large express tremendous goodwill and sympathy for you, but they cannot establish empathy .
The 6th house is both for friends and enemies, health and sickness, attachment and hatred, maternal relatives, cousins, servants and inferiors.
Its results are full of opposites - sharpness of the opposites is felt according to the influence of the planet, its association, conjunction, or as aspected.
But it also indicates troubles for the maternal uncle and his family.
Animals like cows and buffaloes cause great loss, sometimes financially also. Danger to life from sharp-horned animals.
During travel, you may be attacked by tribals or robbed by thievesr.
You are strong, happy, rich and are respected in society.
You will be very libidinous, have powerful digestive fire ( capable of digesting fast), affluent, famous for virtues and be an army chief.
Financial success, disease of the eyes in the 20th year, happiness, affectionate disposition etc., will follow.
You will spend money to save others from legal punishments or spend for friends in general.
There will be troubles for the mother's family ( maternal uncle and other such relatives).
You may be subjected to danger from quadrupeds or loss on account of thefts.
You may suffer breakage of teeth by wood or by stone or incur pains in legs and your end may come through poison, weapon, thirst, hunger, enemies or vices."
Pittaroga Yoga, #279 from:
Remarks:"According to Ayurveda, the entire psychological activities of the body are controlled and brought about by three important forces or basic factors called Thridoshas .
They are Vatha (wind), Pitta (bile) and Sleshma (phlegm). [BPL note: phlegm factor also called"Kapha" ]
I would refer the reader to standard works on Ayurveda for greater details. The Sun's position in the 6th by itself is good.
When the Sun is in the house of diseases, joined and aspected by malefics, the native 's health will not be good and he will always suffer from one complaint or the other due to excitement or pitta or bile."
