How To Read Sun Transit 2023 Effects

In order to understand the effects of planet Sun transit in 2023 there are some key rules to be followed. Since Sun changes sign every month these rules should be applied each time when Sun enters a new zodiac. These are the standard rules of reading a transit but here I will mention some more steps which are applicable to planet Sun transit only.

1. The House Of Its Transit- The first and foremost impact comes from house from where planet Sun is making transit. Sun gives good results when it transit through the 3rd, 6th, 10th and the 11th house. Whereas in houses as such 8th and the 12th, it gives very negative results. so it is important to see which house Sun making the transit and its impact should be judged effectively.

2. Lordship Of Planet Sun- Planets gives results based on the their lordship in a Horoscope and similarly Sun also have lordship over a certain house which makes it a benefic, malefic or a neutral planet. It can happen that Sun is transiting through the 11rd house and once can expect good results from it. But if Sun is lord of the 6th house then the good results of its transit through the 11th house will not manifest. The rulership of Sun over the 6th house will rather cause issues with the significations of the 11th house thus bringing the bad results. You can check the rules of lordship for the rulership of Sun for all rising ascendant signs. Or simply follow the table given below to check where Sun is a benefic or a malefic.

Whereas in the next zodiac sign which is of Taurus, planet Sun is not comfortable in it. Which means within a span of 30 days you will experience different results from the transit of Sun.

  • If Sun is making a transit over the malefic planets like Saturn, Mars,Rahu and Ketu then there will be results of negative nature.
