Sun in the 12th House of Enemy Saturn

Astrological Meaning of Sun in 12th House:

Sun is the ‘Father of Stars’ and Saturn his misery. Sun can absorb the power and influence of any planet within an orb of 8 ½ degrees of his conjunction. Sun represents the administrative head or Government. The Sun offers us the power of resistance and vitality. He controls the breath of life, and makes one determined and decisive. You must have seen people in your life with amazing self-confidence, full of energy, always high spirit, highly ambitious; this is primarily because of their strong Sun. If Sun is unfavorable in the chart, the native may be too forceful, lordly, domineering, positively arrogant and extravagant. It may also cause heart disorders as well as loss of position or esteem due to impulsiveness. It is the most prominent significator of father who creates a new life in you. Sun is the secondary significator for husband or male partner in a woman’s chart. Sun rules Leo and 5th house.

Sun aspect on the 6th house from 12th house:

This is again very tricky aspect as 6th house belongs to Saturn and Sun is the enemy. However, both Sun & Saturn are malefic planets and 6th House is a malefic house, so two negatives make a positive. Native is mostly healthy, victorious over his enemies and confident; Sun aspect on the 6th House makes native a very good politician, famous and give good administrative abilities unless it is not afflicted. Native may not be satisfied from his profession and he frequently changes his profession. This aspect makes native a very committed and disciplined worker but unpopular among coworkers. This aspect of Sun may not be good for maternal uncle of the native.


It is important to note that a lot of result is based on the placement of the Saturn, 12th house lord and sign in which Sun is residing.
