Let’s look at important things here –
Sun - Sun represents Personality, King, Government, Father, Authority, Career, Top Positions, Ego, Self Esteem, Health, Education etc.
Anuradha Nakshatra - It is a nakshatra of following heart's desires or being devotional about something or someone. It is also related with mystical side of life. For more information on Anuradha Nakshatra, please read this - https://www.astrosaxena.com/anunaksh .
Scorpio - As Anuradha is a part of Scorpio, Scorpio sign and its representations also become important. Scorpio is the 8th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents the things and energy related with 8th house of horoscope like Sudden Events, Secrecy, Dark World, Occult Science, Research, Inheritance, Serving Others, Taxes etc. Besides these things sign of Scorpio also represent transformation, means changing the whole nature upside down. This is one sign which is favorite of every Astrologer, because it has maximum secrets, so every astrologer gets maximum scope of researching. This is sign about which no one can tell with precision that what will happen to the planets in it, as it is sign of secrecy itself. Wherever Scorpio falls in your chart, you may have had biggest challenges in making things related with that house more stable. Scorpio is also one of those unique signs which has 2 rulers, i.e. Mars and Ketu. In Western Astrology, Pluto also co-rules Scorpio. All this makes Scorpio a chaotic sign. Scorpio consists of next set of 2 and half nakshatras, i.e. Vishakha, Anuradha and Jyeshtha.
Saturn - As Saturn rules Anuradha, Saturn's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Anuradha.
Mars-Ketu - As Mars-Ketu rules Scorpio, their position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Anuradha/Scorpio.
Houses Involved – Also, we can’t afford to forget the houses involved as a planet can be ruling different houses and sitting in different house for every person as per ascendant and planet’s position. To know overall affect, we have to consider the houses involved as those areas of life are being impacted.
Interpretation of Sun in Anuradha Nakshatra – If Sun is in Anuradha nakshatra, 1st of all it shows that person must follow the career path which is his heart's desires. It means that if a person has to choose an option between going for an orthodox job oriented career Vs following his hobbies & interests as Career then he should follow the 2nd option. It also shows that person can be devoted towards Father or vice-versa. Likewise, whichever house Sun rules in chart, person can be devoted towards things or people related with that house. Mystical side of career also becomes a possibility due to involvement of Scorpio sign and symbol of mystical staff. But at the same time, as Saturn rules Anuradha Nakshatra which remains enemy of Sun, it shows person will get success in career after delay, immense hard work and perseverance. Person, although devoted to Father, but can still have a distant relation with Father. It also shows that in initial life, person can have a very repressed or fearful personality due to Saturn impact over Sun. Sun-Saturn combination creates the usual possibility of Career in Govt or Law too. Overall, this can be a great position for someone who wants to follow his desires in matters of Career.
Role of Saturn – Saturn placement is important to guide Sun in right direction, being Anuradha's lord.
Role of Mars-Ketu - Also, Mars-Ketu placement is important to guide Sun in right direction, being Scorpio lord.
Other Factors – And of course, we need to consider conjunction, aspects, house lordship, house position and dashas etc to know the exact results of Sun in Anuradha. So, we always need to take a holistic view of chart rather than just 1 planetary position.
Conclusion – So, this is how I see Sun in Anuradha can work in a chart.
Hope this helps. Please post any comment or query you may have.
