Sun in Mesha from April 13th to May 14th 2021
In Vedic tradition the New Year begins when the Sun enters the first sign of the zodiac, Aries. The Sun, is considered the heart of the galaxy and is exalted in Aries. And it is around the Sun that all the other planets revolve. In Vedic astrology, we consider the Sun as the vital energy of the Soul. Any planets that gets too close to the Sun, becomes combust. A well placed Sun, gives us recognition, name and fame. If it is ill placed, it causes the individual to suffer from poor self-esteem, financial and social issues and other challenges regarding their position in society. The beginning of the New Year, is the season for rejuvenation, fertility and growth.
