Om hram hrim hraum sah suryaya namah
in Thula Rashi

Sun in Libra
Surya in bhava-1 = often neechcha bhanga
One's natural genius seeks to be in the center of bargaining, alliance-building, match-making, and balancing activities.
Surya the Divine Self feels too much pressure to compromise His authenticity when trapped in the realm of His enemy Shukra the Human Harmonizer.
Surya's ego expression depends on character of aesthetic, pleasure-loving Shukra.
When reversed through neechcha bhanga, Thula Surya becomes capable of the highest levels of executive leadership and extraordinary moral judgment.
Courage and moral intelligence at their lowest point.
One radiates confidence in matters of balance and good design. Appreciates (Shukra, price) the need for individual self interest (Surya) to be included in the design of harmonious partnerships.
Visible public behavior psychologically driven by childhood memories of weighing and balancing, praise for losing one's identity through peace-making, and absorbing the cost of compromise.
Surya's nature is self-defined and confidently independent; while Shukra requires coordination, sharing, and compromise.
Does not seek core ego validation from the divine. Rather, the native 's self-confidence is chained to the constant flow of validation from relationship partners.
Lack of clear inner sense of divine truth = absent moral compass = long-term moral uncertainty. If the partner is also morally weak, in love or business, the native will flounder.
The native benefits from qualified moral guidance. Needs mentors, counselors, and ideally a confident spouse.
If this one is your employee, pair him/her in a supportive role with a more dominant-ego partner. Avoid exploitation, counsel toward teamwork and do not force this one to make independent decisions. Provide abundant human approval for best results.
The rashi of Surya's mutual enemy Shukra is a very inhospitable place for Surya. Depending on Shukra's dignity, native typically suffers low self-esteem and/or an unbalanced ego.
Should Surya join Shani in Thula, in a kendra or a trine, the native develops a decisive, executive nature. The strength of this pair derives not from one's interior moral certainty (as for Surya in Simha) but rather on extraordinary attention to justice and balance in human relationships.
This form of executive intelligence can guide a large organization, through its deep awareness of the many individually balanced relationships which compose the total pyramid group.
Admittedly, the native does not know with certainty the true distinction between right and wrong. However, this one consults peers, holds meetings, and applies the principles of social justice to achieve a moral decision.
Success from brilliant designs, sense of justice, and willingness to share credit and ask for advice.
Neechcha bhanga Ravi-Thula in kendra = the strongest Ravi of all.
Surya/Thula = ability to compromise and get along with people. Agreeable, flexible, non-confrontational. Will compromise extensively in order to achieve harmony. Succeeds when partnered with stronger egos.
Without neechcha-bhanga corrections, Surya-Thula ego is too weak to compete independently. Ego-identifies with partnerships and works according to the principles of the partner. Not a strong leader and not entrepreneurial, but a valuable and dedicated team-player in business.
Surya in Thula rashi creates a life-script element regarding the behavior of the father (or father-figure, who may be the grandfather or other dominant male).
In particular according to Thula the Balancing Scales, the father-figure is concerned with receiving core validation through relationship partners.
Uncorrected neechcha Ravi = generally unfavorable for the Father suggesting his low entitlement to Surya-portfolio qualities such as personal confidence and creativity.
Typically, he has low self-esteem, for which he may attempt to compensate (Thula, rebalancing) with promiscuity or other Shukra-driven pleasure-seeking behavior.
The father may hold a social position such as attorney barrister solicitor advocate who seeks balance and agreement on behalf of clients; with Shukra may be a fashion designer, artist or architect producing aesthetically balanced art; could be successful as a business consultant, marriage counselor or political advisor; or other negotiation, bargaining, or partnering role.
Material success for the Thula-Surya, affecting both the native and the native's father, is much improved when Thula Surya enjoys a relationship with either Shukra or Shani - ideally, both.
Two classic examples:
Note: Full profile of father = Surya + Guru + dharma bhava + L-9 + 9th-from-chandra + pitri-karaka+ D-12
Das comments on Surya-Thula
"The Sun is fallen in this sign.
This is not good for the things the Sun controls.
will live by selling gold and other metals,
doing others' jobs,
extra marital affairs,
These negative effects may come and go at different times.
Nevertheless, this position gives you some of these challenges to overcome in this life."
