Surya (the Sun) entering Dhanush Rashi (Sagittarius)
Surya or Suriya (Hindi-Sanskrit word, meaning the sun) is normally called a planet for convenience-reference (and not a star) in Astrology [also like the natural Earth satellite- the moon]. As the name suggests, it is regarded as the most influential, dominant or royal King of all the planets (celestial bodies). It reflects aspects like power, energy, authority, ego, strength, wisdom, spirit, the conscious mind etc. In Hindi and Sanskrit, there are names given to Surya as well, like, Ravi, Bhaskara, Bhanu, Aditya etc. Many Hindu parents name their baby boy child/children these names. Some prominent personalities-celebrities with these ‘Sun’ meaning names are: Sri Sri Ravi Shankar (spiritual leader), Mr. Ravi Shastri (famous Indian veteran international cricket player), Mr. Ravi Shankar Prasad (Indian BJP politician, Minister), Mr. Suriya Sivakumar (famous south Indian Actor), Mr. Surya Ganguly (Sports, Chess Grandmaster), Mr. P. Bhaskaran (Poet), Mr. Aditya Pancholi (Actor), Mr. Aditya Mittal (UK business tycoon, Mittal family-group net worth – approximately US$ 16 billion) etc. Famous and popular Hindu girl names relating to Surya (sun) are like Savita, Aarushi, Akriti, Sunita, Anshumali (also male name), Gayatri, Paroo etc.
Most of the daily, modern day periodic horoscopes are based on the sun as well; that relates to the position of the sun at the birth of any person (per Janam Kundali, Natal/birth Chart). We are aware of the 12 sun-signs (called Rashi in Hindi) that are – Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Capricorn, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Aquarius and Pisces. Each of us fall in one these 12 zodiac signs, per our birthday. Corresponding Hindi-Sanskrit names to these English sun-sign names are Mesh, Vrishabha, Mithun, Kark, Singh, Kanya, Makar, Tula, Vrshchika, Dhanu (Dhanush), Kumbh, Meen, respectively. The sun, through the year, goes-passes (transits) to each of these signs for specific number of days (like 29, 30 or 31).
The time-periods of each sun-sign per a following of Astrology (360°) for 2017 are:
