Surya Dev or the Sun God is the highly revering deity in Hindu mythology. Being the head of all the nine planets, Surya dev has immense strength and he controls the life on earth. Blessed with heavenly powers he is portrayed as riding the chariot which is driven by 7 horses or 1 horse with 7 heads. The number seven defines the seven majestic colors of the rainbow, the seven seasons and also the seven chakras of the human body.
Surya is widely worshipped by devotees, including the asuras or demons. Surya Devta is adored by the Saura sect, which worships him as one of the five main Gods. Yatudhanas, group of demons, were also the deep followers of Surya. Even the Greeks and Romans have special mention of Sun God in their ancient mythology.
Significance of adoring Sun God:
Sun is considered as the significator of health, profession and father in the Vedic Astrology. The light energy of the Sun is a natural remedy for the body ailments and boosts us with energy and positivity. Vitamin D from the Sun is a healthy source for stronger immune system and bones. While offering water to the Sun God in early morning hours, the sunlight gets refracted and reflected due to the thin layer of water which leads to the production of 7 forms of light that get absorbed by our body. Since our body has large surface area, the rays are absorbed through it, maximum by the chest.
The Sun is the symbol of the Self-god. As the Self-god illuminates the mind, the intellect and the body, the Sun illuminates the world. Being the highest symbol of enlightenment the Surya devta bestows the devotee with knowledge and illuminates the dark lives of his devotees.

From times immemorial, people are scared of Saturn or “Shaani Dev”. In the Indian context, whenever anything goes wrong in our lives or there is a delay in any auspicious work or a person is in any sort of difficulty, we tend to blame it on “Shaani”. This is something that people in India have been hearing since childhood and Saturn or “Shaani” has thus become a much maligned planet.
However, it is not always true that Saturn is the cause of all our problems. Saturn can be one of the most beneficial planets for someone born under Libra (Tula) lagna or Taurus (Vrisabh) lagna. Saturn can also be very beneficial to someone with Gemini (Mithun) lagna if placed in his horoscope in the 9th or the 10th house. Saturn can give excellent results to someone with Virgo (Kanya) lagna also if placed in his horoscope’s 5th, 9th or 10th house. Saturn also gives good results when placed in the 7th or 12th house of a horoscope. When Saturn is beneficial, it can give a person Power, fame, wealth beyond imagination and all the material comforts and pleasures of life. In fact, in Indian Astrology, it is said that no auspicious event can occur without the blessings of Jupiter and green signal from Saturn. For example, we can accurately predict the timing of marriage from the transit of Jupiter and Saturn. If a person’s “dasha” is indicating marriage and we want to know the exact timing of the marriage, we only need to see whether Jupiter and Saturn are transiting over his or her horoscope’s 7th house or aspecting the horoscope’s 7th house in transit. Marriage will happen when the 7th house is activated in transit by Jupiter and Saturn. Saturn stays in a Zodiac sign for two and half years and Jupiter stays in a Zodiac sign for a year. Saturn may delay, but it never denies. It is the planet of justice. A peculiarity of Saturn about which a majority of Astrologers are unaware of is that if it is placed in exaltation in a horoscope in Libra (Tula), it gives bad results and if it is placed in debilitation in Aries (Mesh), it gives good results. In case of all other planets, the case is the reverse.
Another feared phenomenon caused by Saturn’s transit is “Sade Sati”. When Saturn transits over the natal moon in a horoscope and in both the houses next to the the natal moon, it causes “Sade Sati”. “Sade Sati” lasts for seven and a half years. “Sade Sati”, although being troublesome for anyone under its influence is more troublesome for the fiery sign lagnas – Aries (Mesh), Leo (Simha) and Sagittarius (Dhanu). It can be very troublesome for Cancer (Kark) lagna too. When a person is under the influence of “Sade Sati”, he faces a lot of mental tension, hurdles in every step of life, disturbed family life, financial problem and irritation and despair in day to day life. With proper remedies, the ill effects of “Sade Sati” can be neutralized to a great extent.
But a person facing the brunt of Saturn’s wrath under “Sade Sati” should understand that Saturn is a “Karmic” planet which gives us the results of the karmas of previous births in this life and Saturn is a great teacher. Saturn’s “Sade Sati” comes into our lives for a cosmic reason and that is to impart the lessons of life to a person. Troubles caused by “Sade Sati” will teach a proud person to become more humble and a spendthrift the value of money. Saturn’s “Sade Sati” will cleanse the negativity from a person and leave him a better person at the end of the “Sade Sati” period of seven and a half years.
Thus we see that Saturn is not an evil and malevolent planet as it is made out to be, but a great teacher and a planet which imparts divine justice.

The beautiful hues in our life play a significant role to describe the exclusive trait of an individual. From darker shades of devilish vamps to brighter shades of the goody protagonist, the colour says it all in our Indian daily soaps. Similarly numerous hues and shades create varying effect in our lives, having their own unique story. The bright and chirpy ‘Yellow’ colour attracts most attention and is one of the three primary colours. This colour connotes varied meanings as per cultures and psychology, and even attributes to Hindu religion.
The optimistic yellow colour transmits the wave of spirituality and enlightenment in one’s life. It symbolise the pure flavour of knowledge and learning, and Lord Vishnu being the epitome of limitless knowledge is connected to this colour. It is often said that the yellow attire of Lord Vishnu represents his vast ocean of awareness and spreads the hope of happiness. A yellow flower garland, often witnessed around the Lord’s neck is a symbol of the devotee’s adoration for the Lord and all the genuine desires of His devotees are fulfilled by him. His most popular incarnation as Lord Krishna is also observed wearing yellow attires that clearly portray his optimistic manifestation of cheerfulness and a bit of sensuality.
Other significance of colour Yellow:
Yellow being the most visible colour of the spectrum, has 2.5 times higher peripheral vision than red. The human eye processes yellow first than any other paint. It has a high light reflectance value and therefore it acts as a secondary light source.
Along with the positive side of this beautiful colour it is also associated with cowardice, betrayal, egoism, and madness. Further it is the colour of caution and physical illness (jaundice and malaria). Though most of the nation connotes positive values to this colour, yet Yellow is reserved for ‘Mourning’ in Egypt and Judas wore a Yellow coat when he betrayed Jesus in the Christian tradition.
Holding varied opinion for different individuals, yellow is the bright colour of life signifying happiness. Yellow is mostly worn by people to attract their beloved mate and is usually worn on Thursday to adore Lord Vishnu and receive wealth, success, fame, and happiness as His blessings.
