  5. The Sun in Cancer:...




In the Vedic sky, the Sun has just moved to Karkata or Cancer. This means that if you could look up at this luminary with your naked eyes, you’d see it at the beginning of the Cancer constellation in the company of both Mars and Mercury.

This is perhaps too much energy in just one sign, if you think that Cancer is a water sign ruled by the sensitive Moon, the mind principle. The Sun instead represents your soul—or atma in Sanskrit.

What will this mean for you? You can expect themes such as water, emotions, protection, vitality, nurturing, caring, government, wealth and career to become somewhat interconnected, and sometimes to an extreme.

So to maximize your success, meet your deadlines and gain from your profession—between July 16 and August 16—here for you three easy ways to enjoy your home life, your family and still achieve your goals with aplomb. Your wealth and happiness are ensured with these three Vedic guidelines.

Fatherly love

What does your country have to do with your parents? Surprisingly this unusual juxtaposition will make more sense than you may think.

Leaving political considerations aside, in fact, the Vedic Sun represents the father figure, the Moon your mother and Cancer—the natural 4th house—is related to your home life, peace of mind, your country and your local government.

Careers in the political arena in your hometown or state, water-related businesses, gifts and help from your mother are some of the ways you could reach success and wealth this month.

Also, because of the presence of Mars and Mercury, engineering, media and technology will help you establish yourself as an authority figure in your field.

Remember to ground yourself with meditation and, if possible, try to be like a loving father or mother to those around you both at work or home.



Those working in hospitals and healthcare centers could now witness growth in their career or paycheck.

Help from heavenly Archetypes

According to the Vedic seers, the Sun or Surya is a powerful being and not just a ball of fire. It’s believed that connecting with the Sun and its celestial overlords can bring you a promotion and even fame.

Below is some ancient technology said to bring you benefits from the Sun and turn a struggling career into a successful one.

  • Recite OM SURYAYA NAMAHA 108 times on Sunday or during the Sun hora.
  • Invoke the Sun’s overlord Shiva with OM NAMASHIVAYA 108 times at any time and especially on Sundays or Mondays.
  • Light an oil or ghee lamp and incense, and offer flowers, fruit and water to an image of the Sun on Sundays. Recite the Sun mantra above.
  • You can also pour water outside (or on your balcony) 3 times and recite the Sun mantra 3 times. Ask the Sun for what you need in your career or miracles in your finances.
  • Thank the Sun.

Powerful fire ceremonies

Have you noticed how the flames of a fire always rise upwards? This characteristic of the fire element was believed to be caused by the fire’s perpetual desire to reach the heavenly realms.

Fire is considered a vehicle to the Divine and a connector of earth with the heavens.

The Rishis and Siddha yogis believed that Agni or the fire archetype was a celestial being of immense power. Agni is also mentioned in the Vedas countless times as one of the main Vedic deities.

Fire ceremonies (or Fire Labs) to the Sun and Shiva (or even Vishnu) are said to protect your well-being, bring you favors from authority figures, a promotion, and financial wealth.
