Each planet plays an important role in our lives. Its placement in our horoscope impacts our nature and affects those aspects of our lives that the planet rules. The Sun represents our capability to carry forth a task and complete it. The Moon is what helps us to conceptualize and find the way to do it. These two planets complement each other – one is the body and the other is the mind. To function properly, we need both the body and the mind. Hence, among the nine planets, a strong Sun and Moon are very important to create a successful and happy life.
The Sun is the main planet or star in the solar system. It is also the most important planet in our horoscope. It gives us confidence, represents our personality, identity, health, physical strength, and determines how much respect we get. The Sun’s placement in our chart affects how we view ourselves and how the world views us and our contribution to society. It also represents and impacts our relationship with those in authority and the male influences in our life – our fathers and other father figures. Due to all these reasons, it is important to know how a weak Sun can negatively impact our horoscope and our life and how one can reduce the adverse influence of the planet.
