Let’s take a look at those things which matter here –
Sun - Sun represents Personality, King, Government, Father, Authority, Career, Top Positions, Ego, Self Esteem, Health, Education etc.
For Gemini Ascendant people, Sun rules the 3rd house of chart with its sign Leo. So, let’s look at 3rd house and Leo too.
3rd house - It is house of your communication skills, neighbours, short distance travels, younger siblings, marketing, announcements, collecting information, hobbies and skills, self-efforts, business, courage etc.
What will Sun do in Aspect? – Now, Sun can be sitting in any house of chart for a Gemini Ascendant person. 1st of all, Sun will take the energy of house of chart, it rules with Leo sign, and take it to the house where it sits. Then from the house it sits, it will throw its aspect on the 7th house from its place. As Sun represents Ego and Authority, Sun’s aspect on a particular house will show where person will show Ego and Authority of things related to the house which is ruled by Sun through Leo Sign. I am sure that we will better understand when I cover Sun’s aspect house-wise.
Things which I still can’t cover – Although, I am trying to make it a detailed analysis of planetary aspects but I still can’t cover few things like dignity of planet involved, like exalted Sun aspecting 7th house from itself is different from debilitated Sun aspecting 7th house from itself, Sun conjunct with other planets, if there are planets in 7th house from Sun where it aspects, in which case those planets will aspect back at Sun and impact it, and planets aspecting Sun from other houses. That’s why, no matter how detailed analysis you do in Astrology, there are still few things uncovered and that just shows the limits of Human Efforts.
Now, let’s see the meaning and impact of Sun’s aspect through different houses for Gemini Ascendant people.
Sun in 1st house – Sun will be in Gemini after ruling 3rd house. As Gemini and 3rd house both represent things like Business & Communication, it surely shows someone developing his life path as a Businessman or someone in work related to Communication. Here, Father or Younger Siblings impact the personality and person shows the same ego of being a successful businessman on other people/masses. Again, it may give ego battles in relationship but at the same time, would give popularity among masses.
Sun in 2nd house – Sun will be in Cancer in 2nd house , which shows that due to his self effort in Business, he is able to earn wealth for his family. Person will be an authority figure in family and that will lead him to show his authority on 8th house of in-laws and other people. As he is into business and serving other people, other people would accept his authority but this may create ego-battles with in-laws.
Sun in 3rd house – Now, Sun is in own sign. It shows a person who is very confident about his efforts, business and communications. His authoritativeness kind of spoils the relation with younger sibling. From 3rd house, Sun’s aspect goes to 9th house of Higher Education, Teacher, Religion etc and person keeps the same authority over his higher learning. It again gives ego battles with Teachers as person feels that he knows better than his Teachers. This person is very authoritative in his Communications and Counselling.
Sun in 4th house – This shows a person running a home based Business or may be a Business in real estate. Sun loses directional strength here and hence authority in Business may come late in life, but it will come. With Sun’s aspect on 10th house, person will show his authority at Work and Career, which may spoil relations with Father, Boss or Colleagues but he will eventually have hold on to his Career authoritatively.
Sun in 5th house – Here, Sun goes debilitated. Whenever Sun is in Libra, jobs are not the best options for Career. Person should go into creative field, that’s where he will find his ego. As Sun rules 3rd house and sits in 5th house (both houses of talents, skills and hobbies), person must follow a creative career. That’s where, he will get his ego and authority. Sun’s aspect will go to 11th house of gains, which shows gains out of creativity but authoritativeness will again shrink his network circles and friends.
Sun in 6th house – Here, Sun is in Scorpio. It shows that someone’s ego goes through real turmoil after getting into disputes and obstacles. But as always, Sun always comes out of the darkness. So, this person develops his ego while dealing with all the disputes and obstacles in life. As 6th house is also house of jobs/services and Sun’s aspect goes to 12th house, this shows ego and authority at Foreign Lands or Jobs at Foreign Companies.
Sun in 7th house – Here, Sun will be in Sagittarius. Here, person will gain ego and confidence through interacting with other people in matters of higher education. He will show his authority in matters of higher education, which may give him acceptance among masses but may spoil his relations. From 7th house, Sun aspects back at 1st house, which shows that person develops his ego through recognition by other people and masses.
Sun in 8th house – Here, Sun is in enemy sign Capricorn ruled by Saturn. Also, the 8th house energy of transformation will be there. It shows that person’s ego and confidence go through transformation/changes due to authority of other people. This person will also gain authority & confidence as he deals with all the changes in life. Sun’s aspect on 2nd house shows that he will get his confidence while dealing with 8th house matters and then he will show off the same ego to 2nd house of Family and seek authority in Family.
Sun in 9th house – Sun is again in enemy sign Aquarius. Sun’s aspect goes back to own sign Leo and strengthens the 3rd house. It means person will be very confident and authoritative with his speech and communications. Again, Sun in enemy sign means Ego will be developed with delay, hard work and frustration. In early life, he may not get right higher education and teachers, which may lead to some ego battles between person and Gurus. But with time, he will gain good knowledge and display the same with lots of confidence in his communications. But same authority may spoil relations with younger siblings and cousins.
Sun in 10th house – Here, Sun is in Pisces. Now, Sun is in friendly sign and also getting its directional strength. So, this shows a highly successful and authoritative career of person. He will have a great recognition in Society and this ego & authority will then get displayed at home environment. But as Sun is in good dignity here, ego won’t be exaggerated and authority will be as needed.
Sun in 11th house – Here, Sun will be exalted. This shows someone gaining authority at large organizations, government or private, in an authoritative position or while working for Social Welfare/Humanitarian Causes. This also shows his gains and recognition in the world. Then Sun’s aspect goes to 5th house and person shows the same authority over Creativity, Children and Loved Ones. Creativity may prosper but none would like too much of authority. But as Sun is exalted, person will be aware of the level of authority to be shown. That’s where the dignity of planets matter.
Sun in 12th house – Sun will be in Taurus here. It shows someone in business of foreign trading or working in authority position in MNCs at Foreign Lands/Hospitals/Jails etc. Sun’s aspect on 6th house shows that person brings the same authority & ego at his work place and dealing with his colleagues. Hence, person may not be too liked at his work place and this may spoil his image and relations with colleagues.
Ego will remain a factor with Sun, no matter it is exalted or debilitated. Exalted Sun only means a dignified Ego but once it is displayed, you can’t control the way people take it. They may not feel it as dignified one as it hurts their ego. One more thing to remember here is that Sun’s aspect is destroying some things in life but brightening few other things in life. Concept of Jeeva Karaka & Ajeeva Karaka (http://astrosaxena.com/jkak) is working here to know which things will prosper here and which things will get destroyed?
