All About Sun in Scorpio According to Vedic Astrology
Ruling Planet – Mars and Ketu
Element – Water
Date Range – November 17 to December 14
Nature – Fixed Sign
Symbol – The Scorpion
In Vedic astrology, the Scorpio sun sign has two ruling planets – Mars and Ketu. Ketu, in this sign, is exalted. It is a fixed sign. Scorpio is the sign of Transformation. It itself implies sudden changes. So it is basically fixed on constant change, be it internally or in an outside environment.
The element of Scorpio is ‘Water’, which represents deep emotions and feelings. This water is not deep ocean water in the initial years of this sign. It is the middle water layer that lies between the deep ocean bed and the surface water. Although the maximum turbulence could be seen on the surface, it arises from the middle water, and it is a huge contributor to their Transformation.
Sun in Scorpio: Karmic Arrears
Ketu is all about Moksha. It is a planet that drives to clear the karmic backlog as it is related to the past. So the transformation in Scorpio happens because it has a karmic backlog to deal with. Ketu and Mars together bring constant and sudden changes in the native’s life. Initially, due to the planetary influences, the native experiences a lot of confusion, restlessness, and instability.
No planet likes transformation except Ketu. In the Scorpio sign, Ketu represents the things that you have already achieved in your past lives. Hence, wherever Ketu is sitting in the chart, no transformation is needed in that aspect of the house. Any other planet sitting in a particular house for this sign implies a karmic backlog to be accomplished.
Sun in Scorpio is under the responsibility to learn its lessons. That means it has to change whether it likes it or not. You do not have control over past life karma. So, whether you want it or not, transformations will happen.
Sun in Scorpio
Sun is your soul’s Karaka. It represents ego, dignity. self-respect, dedication, willpower, leadership quality, stamina, vitality, health, career, father, status, and government. When the sun enters Scorpio, it is not going to give any results directly. Here, it will depend totally on the placement of Mars and Ketu. These two planets will determine whether the sun will give positive or negative results.
Sun is the significator of your personality, and the Scorpio sign is the sign of sudden changes. So you will have a dynamic personality that will continue to transform as long as the karmic backlog is there. Sun is about stability and reliability, whereas Scorpio brings instability. This is why the sun is very uncomfortable in this sign. But this conflict between the two opposite natures brings amazing clarity if you consciously choose to assist your own transformative process.
Sun also represents father, so he will play an important role in changing your personality. If Mars and Ketu are well placed, your father will teach you very important life lessons, which you will utilize to come out of a dark period of your life. If they are not well placed, then the behaviour of your father will be on the negative side, and it is left on you to bring positive or negative change.
When the sun is in Scorpio, it is a very good placement for becoming a researcher and explorer.
