Surya-12 [eye] sees what is happening in symbolic, invisible realms,

at subtle levels, behind-the-scenes.

  • intelligence regarding foreign lands

  • clandestine political drama

  • bright displays in secluded environments

  • famed for cloistering, imprisonment, hospitalization

  • confidently received private spiritual guidance

splendid placement for the politics of Foreign Affairs

confident clairsentience and imaginative brilliance, acentral role in dream worlds, acentral figure upon the bridge to the ancestors,

bright icon of contemplative thought, private spiritual guidance,

center-stage agent of ashrama, bedroom and privacy, imprisonment (when unfortunate) and retreat

intelligence focused mainly upon the unseen behind the walls, invisibility

a foreigner; ego-identified with distant and imaginary lands of origin

Karaka for the physically inaccessible Father - whether due to his work, his personality, or his dematerialization

Father may be a brilliant spirit-guide, aradiant shepherd to the native operating via astral frequencies (12)

Surya-12 may compensate for the invisible material figures by developing vividly idealistic imaginary figures.

Professor Surya teaching in the classroom of svabhava-9 owned by Ravi's close friend Brihaspati radiates expansive, generous [Guru] personal charisma [Surya] in public ritual (9) and private guidance (12) roles =

  • spiritual guidance, prayer, and clandestine activities; foreign life

  • distant lands, imagination, conceptual thought, theory, first principles, research, interior guidance, hallucination, dreams, bedroom, cloister, enclosure

creative, center-stage specialties =

diviner, trail guide, ferryman, shepherd, interpreter, conveyor, meditator, bridge-watcher

A somewhat ironic placement because Surya-12 indicates that the father is often unavailable or invisible.

Dad may be involved in espionage or other alien activities.

An invisible, inaccessible father-figure may portend similar behavior for one's own fathering self

  • Genesis 1951- songwriter drummer Phil Collins [musical-financial Śrāvaṇa-2] Particularly in his first two marriages, pDCC was accused of negligent fatherhood. On his rare visitations, pDCC was said to have acted adversarial and disgruntled (Surya occupies 6th-from-7, loss of equity within relationships).

Yet, when sparkling Surya's rashi is strong, and the ruler well-placed, one exhibits brilliance in dealing with distant worlds. Confident in private, sequestered or secluded political environments.

[Surya in bhava-12] is often found in nativities of world leaders who have a covert dimension to their international dealings.

One may be the power-center of private channels, a bright light within invisible surrounding (12).

Surya-12 is a remarkably common position in the nativities of world leaders [and their partners] whose political agenda may engage entitled back-channels.

Just as a wise King fills the royal court with philosophers and priests, Splendid Surya the Royalist is well placed in a svabhava of Ravi's friend the religious-teacher Guru.

Spiritually the placement is beneficial.

Socially and psychologically, may be some struggle with lack (12) of recognition (Ravi) and recurring identity loss .

If Surya = strong (Mesha, simha, Vṛścika; yuti Mangala or yuti Guru in hot rashi) one may be recognized for the very qualities of isolation and private retreat.

One may have been a recognized royal figure in a recent parallel life. The confusion caused by clinging to that outdated centrality can enforce a cycle of dream-time searching for continuing present-time recognition.

Ravi's inner glittering brilliance is still there but it is deeply enclosed within the private psyche and not really visible to the wider society unless Surya is paired with other graha in 12.

Occasionally someone of socially central status (modern royalty, corporate executives, political heads of state) will recognize Surya-12 's remarkable qualities, usually in the context of a very private relationship .

Professor Surya teaching in classroom-12 may become instantly addicted (12) to the validation provided via restored recognition = one's absolute centrality [Surya] within that important person's universe.

However, especially for a female this is a difficult position socially: the recognizers are egoistic (Ravi) persons (for the female, typically males = Ravi) who may soon withdraw their praise and Surya-12 is plunged again into an un-admired darkness.

Spirit guides are active in this life and much imaginative personal intelligence [Surya] is engaged.

  • However, the instructions of the ancestral Guides tend to direct one along a portion of the astral-to-material path (12) which develops the charismatic personal genius , speculative intelligence, and self-promotion through one's children [Surya]

  • rather than the channel which develops broadly inclusive intuitive wisdom via quiet interior dreams or reflective prayer which evokes the ever-present Divine [Guru].

Professor Surya teaching in classroom-12 seeks recognition for solar intelligence regarding a distant land. This imaginary foreign charisma is naturally somewhat dulled in one's day-to-day land of living, and Surya-12 may find that tone's life-force energy is drained out by constant re-engagement with a land or culture that no longer anchors the social personality.

Professor Surya teaching in classroom-12 delivers instructions upon the expression of intelligence and charisma in the private, sequestered enclosure of the meditative imagination

One holds a royal court - in one's dreams. A legend in one's own mind.

There is a natural intuitive brightness which shines an intelligent light into the cloistered realms of invisible, enclosed, clandestine and foreign operations

the private lives of celebrities [Surya] and bedroom pillow-talk

Professor Surya teaching in classroom-12 highlights the personal uniqueness of one's own dreams.

Surya brings intelligent ego-brightness to the traffic on the bridge between the astral plane (subconscious) and the material plane (conscious).

The spirit guides are very confident and assertive [Surya] in their personality style of conferring certainty.

Professor Surya teaching in vyaya-bhava-12 also contributes to the dissolution of the fleshly identity. Surya's theatrical style and political approach to dealing with dream-like imagery tends to siphon off the vitality from the animal, blood-fed, muscular body and transmit the life-force back into the dream world. As a result Surya-12 becomes associated with identity loss.

One finds a central position in the drama of imagination-based behaviors , matters of intuition, visionary wisdom, path-finding, guidance from the ancestors and spirits out-of-body, art studio, library, laboratory, the bedroom, hotel rooms, hospital rooms, mediation halls and prayer sanctuaryr.

A brilliant imagination

  • Surya-12 's early ego-membrane development often occurs in a private, secluded environment where one has the experience of being a privileged persona , born into status of central importance, as a local celebrity, or royalty. Yet, the environment is cloistered, in some variety of walled space or ghetto.

  • If Surya is strong, the father may hold a privileged position and perhaps he is also a charismatic personality in this secluded, protected, sanctuary environment.

  • The child may be praised for having a vivid imagination, and for playing alone or at least staying clear of the parent's business. Needing imaginary play-friends, the tiny child is welcomed into the world of spirit beings. As an adult, such a person is happy and often quite productive in environments where little is known about the playmates or colleagues, such as in foreign service, international relations etc. It is the same as the early play-world with imaginary kings and queens speaking fairy-languages.

  • The father is popular and admired, Yet, he has a private life which may not be known to the child. One's importance may depend largely on the father's local political influence.

  • Typical ego-development conditions may be upbringing on the private estate of a financially privileged family, or perhaps within a protected compound such a religious or diplomatic mission, within the outpost of a foreign government such as live-in embassy quarters or a military command, or perhaps Surya-12 was raised as the child of an expatriate executive living in protected international satellite colonies of a powerful multinational corporation.

  • The child's intelligence and appearance might not be counted remarkable nor would Surya-12 have privileged status in the mainstream world of one's home culture, but foreign residence or the uniquely aristocratic status of one's father creates a special bubble of apparent distinction.

  • Surya-12 lives a happy life, ever believing in one's inherent centrality in life's drama and creative intelligence (if Surya-Mesha, also, leadership capability); yet demonstrating very little material output in areas where a strong Surya would be expected to shine socially: politics, theatre, literature, performance arts, speculations, amusements, and games.

  • The social personality is somewhat "standoff-ish" or living in one's head.

  • Surya-12 is not selfish in the negative sense, but rather simultaneously disengaged from the business of self-promotion while preserving the belief in the innate centrality of one's personal identity.

  • It may strike outsiders as silly or pretentious, or a personality disorder of irrationally high self-estimation, but indeed Surya-12 is simply holding two rationally incompatible beliefs: first that one holds an ineffably superior entitlement in life (by blood, or by station, or by divine attention); and second that such an entitlement holds no mandate to material action.

  • There may be some expression of the creative intelligence toward the building of dormitories, ashrams, hospitals, foreign residences, and charitable works in general.

  • Overall, surya-12 does not utilize one's supposed extraordinary qualities for any measurable material purpose. However, remarkable one may feel on the inside, on the outside, one will effectively blend in with the crowd.

Father * Surya Pitrikaraka

Surya in dusthamsha (6, 8, 12) = generally challenging for the father.

Surya-12 indicates that the father's identity has receded largely into the cloistered realms of fantasy for the native, so that one may honor him and believe in him but there is little factual knowledge basis for a social relationship to him.

Often the Surya-12 child develops an elaborate imaginative construct about the father which is noble and bright in character, but is nevertheless a phantasm.

The father may be extremely busy with research or other cloistered duties,

hold a job far distant from the family home visiting only infrequently

  • POTUS-43 Decision Points 1946- George W Bush * his father worked in Washington D.C. while George, his siblings, and his mother lived in Texas and Maine

hospitalized for a chronic illness

He may be known physically to the native, but part of his identity may be invisible

or even, having abandoned the family, be a completely unknown figure to Surya-12

  • Seven Year Itch 1926-1962 Marilyn Monroe [managing-commercial Rohiṇī-3] [Surya-yuti-Budha]. MM never met her father, naor did her father ever acknowledge MM while she lived. To create the idea of a father for young Norma Jean, her mother suggested that MM was the daughter of various cinema idols. Researchers determined by genetic testing long after MM decease, that her father was Charles Grainger, her mom's boss in a cinema film-cutting workplace.

The dramatist Orlando Bloom is an interesting example:

  • his purported father was actually his step-father. The step-father died when young Bloom was four. He grew up believing that his father had passed to the next world (12) and left the family bereft of a solar influence. In Rahu-Surya bhukti , young teen Bloom found out that his bio father = actually a still-alive "family friend" - as if the Father had resurrected. (Surya Dhanus + Mangala-yuti-Budha.)

Vrihaspati's svabhava is a hospitable resting place for Surya.

Presuming the rashi is supportive, surya is karaka for the Soul, and Ravi benefits the spiritual development when in Vyayasthāna-12. Not religious in the conventional ritual sense. Purely spiritual.

  • Surya-12 likes to wander in foreign lands, usually with a self-validation purpose such as recovery of past-life knowledge or political engagement with foreign lands.

  • International perspective on all things; if Surya is strong this is the ruling international elite .

  • Ego-identified with private agreements, closed-door meetings and under-the-table dealings. Since these are the daily doings of political advancement, politicians often benefit from Surya/12.

Typically, surya-12 carries a self-certainty of being a foreigner .

One is ego-identified with a land in which one is not currently living. Whether one is living in the land of one's birth but has ego-attachment to somewhere else, or one is living somewhere else (usually for a long time) and has ego-attachment to the homeland or even a third land, surya-12 with Ravi in the ego-dissolving house of dreams and bridge to astral reality is never quite settled .

  • One seeks praise and recognition for one's private imagination, and ability to relate to those from foreign lands .

  • That is the reason why so very many distinguished international leaders in business and government have the seemingly peculiar placement of Surya in the obscure 12th house: modern leadership is inherently about bright and positive interactions with people who seem a bit distant and dreamy, because the interlocutor's identity is grounded in a foreign land.

Professor Surya teaching in classroom-12 perceives identity in other worlds.

Karaka for a Foreign Identity. Often Surya-12 was born in and is socially identified with a culture foreign to the land of one's passport. If a native son, will be more famous outside the land of one's birth than among one's countrymen.

international attention upon world leaders very probably exceeded the attention paid them by residents of their own lands.

Powerful willpower targeted upon the vision of a better, more ethical world .Strong international identity; not a parochial ego.

  • May be a gifted contemplative philosopher, but the material manifestation of the house ruled by Surya will be expressed in a 'dissolved' style, primarily via the imagistic channel of dreams.

  • " Head in the clouds "and impractical in profession.

  • Fantasizes oneself in many important or dramatic social roles , but unless other graha support a distinguished career, surya in 12 cannot itself materialize the fantasy of recognition.

  • Lacking kendra support, surya-12 may remain unrecognized,"hiding one's light under a barrel" .

Confusion between real and imagined social identities can make a creative theatrical performer or a criminal impostor, depending on all the other graha in the nativity. Surya-12 may indeed live two lives: one, the heroic idealized fantasy life, and the other, the timid, reality.

If Surya is lagnesha, surya-12 may be a may be a public icon who brings the world of private imagination into the light of publicity

Lacking other planetary ego-membrane supports, one stays hidden in some reclusive placer.

Meditative daydreams and fantasies of social importance, royal or celebrity recognition, enlightenment, brilliance, winnings, feats of courage, and eternal life emerge from past-life memories. Surya-12 was indeed a person of high creativity in a parallel life . By default, graha in bhava-12 are 'dissolved' into astral imagery. Whether this distinction will manifest again in the current life depends on the supporting graha.

The celebrities and world leaders featured in the column to the left are examples of nativities = Surya in 12 + other"structural" supports to the ego-membrane such as empowered graha in kendra. They were royal persons in parallel lives , and they were able to continue high levels of public recognition in the current life altho not (or rarely) in the divine-right regal role.

  • Internationalism and an ability to serve as an iconic representative of the collective unconscious are two common features of Ravi/12.

  • Favors scientific research into social patterns of celebrity recognition and into the psychology of will-power.

Surya in 12 = strong for Urisha indriya-lagna, Simha indriya-lagna, Kanya indriya-lagna, and Dhanau lagna.

Surya-12 's early ego-membrane development often occurs in a private, secluded environment wherein one enjoys life as a privileged persona, born into status of celebrity, royalty, or creative distinction.

The father

may hold a privileged position

perhaps dad is also a charismatic personality in this protected, sanctuary environment. The father is popular and admired; Yet, he has a private life which is unknown to the child (dalliance, espionage, etc).

For Dhanau, the father is likely a politician or theatrical actor. For Urisha, he has military or athletic success. For Kanya lagna, the father has some status akin to royalty while he is stationed in a foreign land. For Simha, the child is socially identified with the father as parent, but the father is absent; perhaps the papa is stationed abroad or only a glamorous figure in the child's imagination.

Typical ego-development conditions may include: upbringing on the private estate of a distinguished family

or perhaps within a protected compound such a religious or diplomatic mission, within the outpost of a foreign government such as live-in embassy quarters or a military command, or perhaps Surya-12 was raised as the child of an expatriate executive living in protected international satellite colonies of a powerful multinational corporation.

  • Compare to POTUS-43 Decision Points 1946- George W. Bush, who was raised in a privileged compound and later in dormitories of private schools, but whose Surya occupies Mithuna rashi, and thus he mingled comfortably with those of diverse backgrounds.

The child's intelligence and appearance might not be counted remarkable nor would then native have privileged status in the mainstream world of one's home culture. But the unique conditions of foreign residence or the unique // foreign dignitary // status of one's father creates a special bubble of apparent superiority, talent, or moral virtue.

Surya-12 lives a peculiar, not unhappy life, ever believing in one's own inherent creative intelligence (if Surya-Mesha, belief in one's inherent leadership capability).

Yet, one demonstrates rather little material output in areas where a strong Surya, were it not sequestered in 12, would shine: politics, theatre, literature, performance arts, speculations, amusements, and games.

In a scientific nativity, surya-12 in combination with other developing graha may indicate a personality that is confident in research undertakings, even after long years one may continue to pursue a line of research enquiry which is quite personalized and not necessarily conforming (anti-Shani) to public standards.


When Professor Surya lectures from the pulpit of classroom-12, the brightly confident social personality is rather proudly reserved , self-centered but not flamboyant, and persistently standoffish. If vriddhi-pati-11 or its lord is strong, oneone may be quite goal-oriented and build a large network of instrumental friendships, but one's aristocratic airs may still be felt.

Surya-12 is not selfish in the negative sense, but rather one is disengaged from the business of self-promotion while simultaneously convinced of one's innate royal superiority. It is a difficult juxtaposition of convictions (Ravi) which creates a permanent "foreigner" identity; defined by a deep astral voice announces that one is a radiant, elegant, and privileged stranger in one's own land.

Surya-12 may often refer to imaginary glory days in another land or another time. Surya-12 's public behavior may strike outsiders as pretentious or unjustifiable based on the Typically, rather mundane conditions of the material life.

If [Surya-yuti-Rahu] or Surya-yuti-Ketu, Surya-12 may even be perceived to show a personality disorder of irrationally high self-estimation. But indeed Surya-12 is simply holding two rather internally inconsistent beliefs: first that one holds an ineffably superior entitlement in life (by blood, or by station, or by divine attention); and second that such an entitlement of intelligence or holds no mandate to material action on behalf of others.

There may be some expression of the creative intelligence toward the building of dormitories, ashrams, hospitals, foreign residences, and international charitable works.

However, unless other, more motivated graha accompany Surya/12, overall Surya-12 does not utilize one's supposed extraordinary qualities for much material purpose. No matter how exemplary one may feel on the inside -- on the outside, one will easily blend in with the crowd.

Dramatic exceptions caused by strong companion graha in 12


Surya in bhava-12 tends to hide one's light under a bushel.

Surya-12 channels divine creativity primarily through works of the imagination, or through intense ego-engagement with foreign lands. Strong ego-identity as a foreigner regardless of the country of birth or permanent residence.

  • There is much more to this person than meets the public eye. Full social recognition of one's personal genius is filtered and physical vitality is somewhat reduced by a focusing of the intelligence upon things protected from view.

  • Damages the relationship to the father: either loss of a father by death or social-emotional dissolution of the relationship to the father.

Exception: parivartamsha yoga with the lagnesha-1 may provide extreme publicity for the private, imaginative imagery and worldwide recognition.

Ravi's intelligence and romantic, self-admiring mentality tend to disappear when He is plunged into the imaginative, private depths of the 12th Bhava of dreams and sanctuary.

Surya-12 may be foreign-born. One brings, as personality structure, aset of ideals from the first culture which cannot be fully recognized in the culture into which one has migrated.

The father is a distant and poetic figure, not real. The father may feel entitled to maintaining a distance from the Surya-12 child as a fair consequence of his public duties.

Polarizing catalysis for the eyes or sensitive to sulfurous fumes; glamour and glory in the private bedroom. Object of the fantasy lives of others.

When Professor Surya-12 is strong by rashi, the child romanticizes a distant father as an icon of royal elegance. If Ravi is weak, more softness and compassion but the father is still narcissistic or at the best prone to a self-romanticizing philosophical view.

There is little need to criticize shortcomings from the ideal standard within the world of dreams, meditation, and the imagination. Surya-12's inner light burns brightly and one harbors many perfect images. The intelligence does not find full expression and one's children are not quite perfect. Yet Surya-12 does not experience or express very much conscious conflict between real and ideal.

One's radiant, show-off, demonstrative public-personality energy is largely absorbed into the private aesthetic reflections, when it is consciously emergent at all.

Surya-12 is king of an imaginary kingdom.


QUOTATION Das - Behari commentary WRT Surya-12

" You are interested in the real essence of manifestation.

  • Having withdrawn from the objective plane of existence, the soul dwells in subjective reality .

It produces spiritual forces strong enough to counteract or restrict development along purely materialistic lines.

  • Since one's father represents the creative energy in man and thus leads to the furtherance of manifested creation,

  • the Sun (father) in the Twelfth is not favorable for your biological father ,

nor do you waste your vital energy in creative channels.

You withdraw from the path of going forth, on which you get involved in materiality.

  • You are not interested in money, marriage, social status, and so on.

Some may therefore consider you anti-social.

Eye trouble;

victor in competition;

  • self-controlled and success in everything you lay your hand on

  • free from physical pain

  • success in obscure or unpopular occupation

  • trouble from uncle who may meet danger in journey.

Your eyes and uncle are hard hit;

unexpected loss of wealth on the way;

strange sickness; mercurial temperament;

  • convert and heretic

  • scared of the leader and thieves

  • anti-social and irreligious.

Blessed with son and fortitude;

physically deformed;

A wanderer.

Foolish, sexy, debauch, cruel.

Barren spouse,

hostility to father,

weak and mean.

Sun in the 12th causes damage to the right eye.

Much expenditure through the government (by way of taxes, fines etc.)"
