Sun in Libra ♎️ ⋆ Debilitated


Last updated on December 9th, 2022 at 11:36 pm

Why is Sun debilitated in Libra? It is because of the uniqueness, self-centeredness of Sun fails to function properly in the sign of society, Libra, which forces Sun to leave the center of attention.

Sun in this sign is in 3rd from its sign Leo. Herein the 3rd signifies courage, valor, willpower, motivation, the power to take action, self-made efforts, skills, talents, communication, mental strength & purity, etc.

With the fall of the Sun, the above-mentioned significances get damaged and suffer in deficiencies.

However, if the debilitation of the Sun gets canceled and a powerful combination is formed, the initial negative traits are transformed into powerful ones which bestow great results and capabilities. More in this at the end of the article.

With that being said, deeper outcomes of this combination are dependent on the dignity and positioning of Venus, which becomes the guiding planet to the Sun. It also means that a strong Venus can guide the Sun out of trouble.

Results of Sun in Libra

Sensitivity Within Crowds

Sun is the bright star of our solar center, which represents the fondness of having all the attention and bright spotlight.

Libra is the 7th zodiac sign which represents society, equity, balance, and everything that is sweet or pleasant.

Sun, however, is the ruler of the 5th zodiac sign Leo which signifies originality, uniqueness, and self-awareness.

Hence, Sun is meant to be special, unique, and different the placement of which in Libra encourages natives with this combination to blend in with everyone else.

Because their souls want to have a unique shine on them they often fail to blend in with the masses. The feeling of losing identity and uniqueness in crowds may trigger a desire to restlessly chase for attention.

The reason why Libra is a difficult position for the planet Sun is that the 7th zodiac sign requires everyone to feel harmony and happiness through fairness and equity.

The restless chase after self-awareness in crowded areas involuntarily makes these natives try to raise themselves above others whatever it takes.

With undignified and fallen Sun, they often harness unethical tactics in an attempt to shine like no other in their society.

In addition to this, Venus, a planet that rules Libra, is considered an enemy of the Sun which makes this combination even more difficult.

It reflects their strong desire to be admired in terms of beauty and attention. They also have an increased desire for luxury and romance. It is not necessarily a bad thing as long as they are not prioritized over higher values, which Sun is all about.

Speaking of which, if the cancellation of debilitation occurs, Libra Sun natives are able to work effectively for the society behind the scenes while not having the spotlight on them.

Alternatively, the cancellation of fall with dignified Venus (guide of Libra Sun) indicates the ability to romanticize or beautify matters in a unique way that catches the attention of the masses ethically without inducing inequity.

When it comes to cravings for attention, a dignified Venus gives them the ability to be polite and smooth out their roughness with good manners which grants them necessary affection.

Trading & Entrepreneurship

Despite the significations of the Sun such as the purity of the soul and vitality being highly damaged it may promote success in business and trading as Libra signifies marketplaces, trading, and entrepreneurship.

In worldly life, Libra Sun natives perform well in trading and business as their vitality of soul is exhausted on marketplaces and societal matters.

Also, they are usually attached to wealth or worldly matters which makes them ready to do whatever it takes to achieve their worldly goals.

They are usually very motivated to push their boundaries when it comes to materialistic success.

With that being said, as their purity of soul (Sun) is fallen, it motivates them to perform unethical, immoral, and sinful acts in order to gain the lead.

A deeper reason for their unethical deeds and tactics is the lack of courage and fear of competitors taking their place. As a result, they usually apply unethical tactics to ensure their spot in society, business, or career.

More specifically, Sun is in 3rd from its own sign Leo. Herein the 3rd disposition signifies valor, efforts, and skills.

With weakly formed 3rd disposition they tend to lack motivation, willpower, and courage to take action. This is because weakened Sun indicates lowered vitality or less energy to exhaust and produce desired results.

The feeling of losing out may trigger the temptation to attain something quicker with fewer efforts. Using unethical shortcuts or tactics makes it difficult for them to shine brightly in marketplaces, entrepreneurship, and trading.

Hence, to avoid this negative effect from manifesting and ruining dignity, it is strictly necessary to consider the outcomes of each action and word because it can have a great toll on name, fame, dignity, and public appearance.

Difficulties At Soul Level

Sun in Libra signifies souls that are lost or fallen, as mentioned previously. The biggest lesson of Libra Sun natives is to learn how to regain the balance (Libra) of their souls and find the right path in life.

Libra Sun natives face many disgraces in their lives especially during the first quarter of their lives, until Sun matures in terms of Vedic Astrology.

As a result, their ego may get highly damaged and their personality may develop egocentric, ungracious, and overly sensitive traits during the hard times.

However, if you have this combination in your birth chart, please do not despair because the debilitation may become a great strength over time if special combinations in the chart allow so. Please continue reading until the end of the article to learn about strengths.

With that being said, if Venus, the guide of the Sun in this sign is dignified, it also saves the soul from being immoral. That is because Venus as the ruler of the sign of balance, Libra, signifies justice.

When this planet is strong, a sense of justice leads the damaged soul out of trouble and cuts the chain of immoral actions.

If the cancellation of debilitation occurs, then these individuals are able to rise from ashes like the bird named Phoenix.

After having gone through various trials and making unethical mistakes, these individuals learn how not to repeat them.

During the process, they also learn to master dignity and integrity which becomes their main driving force after rising from the ashes.

Keep repenting and repeating secretly in mind: "God is enough for me and I bear witness that there is no other worthy of worship than the Almighty Creator alone" for the pleasure and abundance of God to flow in
(Surat al-Baqarah 2:163)

Whoever makes the Hereafter (aims for piety & righteousness) his/her goal, Allah (english: God) makes his/her heart rich, and organizes his/her affairs, and the world comes to him/her whether it wants to or not
(Jami` at-Tirmidhi 2465)

And God is the most merciful and loving. The God Almighty said: By My might and majesty, I will continue to forgive them, as long as they seek My forgiveness.
(Musnad Aḥmad 11237)

And God protects the faithul more than a caring Mother protects her child
(Sahih al-Bukhari 5999)

Do not perform idolatry, impiety, disrespect for parents, murder, theft, adultery, false witness, and envy
(Surat al-An’am 6:151-153)

The Messenger of God [PBUH] used to stress charity in his sermons, and prohibit mutilation. But protect truth and believers at all costs.
(Sunan an-Nasa'i 4047)

There must be no sects, tribes, or gangs amongst you, and take special care of women.
(Words From The Last Sermon Of The Last Prophet {PBUH})

All people are theoretically beleivers if they believe in one God, The Prophets (some of them: Solomon, Moses, Jesus) and The Seal of Prophets (Muhammad) peace be upon them. That is, do not be quick to judge and leave judgment to God except when there is direct threat to righteous beleivers.

Some of The Last Words of God via The Last Prophet

Restless Travelers

Libra, as the 7th zodiac sign, represents far away foreign lands. It is because the 7th sign is directly opposite to the 1st sign of Aries, which denotes birth and the beginning of life. At the same time, Sun signifies a passion for adventure, exploration, and the desire to lead an active lifestyle.

Hence, when Sun is in Libra, it indicates that these natives are fond of traveling to find their meaning in life and relieve stress caused mainly by society.

If the fall of Libra Sun is canceled, it indicates that frequent long-distance travels are especially favorable and bring a lot of fortune and success in social work or entrepreneurship.

Father & Authority Figures

Father and authority figures are very important primary significances of the Sun. When Sun is fallen in Libra, it indicates issues with the father and authorities.

That is, there may be a bad relation between Libra Sun natives and their fathers. Their fathers can be very distant due to a variety of reasons, be it business/work matters, attitude troubles, or other issues.

Another reason why Sun feels very uncomfortable in Libra is because of being forced to leave the spotlight and blend in with society as discussed earlier.

This indeed is disastrous for Sun as it gives the desire to always shine and stand out from the crowd. This significance translates to worldly life as well which causes issues with fatherly or authoritative figures.

Alternatively, it means that they are bereft from fatherly assistance which can actually make them self-made masters as they have to figure out everything on their own, especially when it comes to things related to leading, initiating, courage, and dignity.

More specifically, the weakness of the Sun causes sensitivity regarding ego or self-awareness. When this happens, Libra Sun natives start to grasp more attention and crave more power which sooner or later leads to misunderstandings with authorities. They want to be in charge and not be told what to do.

If they are authority figures themselves, their overly sensitive attitude may cause strife with the members of society, the marketplace, or the workplace. This leads to situations where they are dishonored due to selfishness and misunderstandings caused by that.

In addition to that, their damaged or supersensitive ego caused by the fallen Sun urges these natives to attempt desperately to raise themselves above others.

If the debilitation of Libra Sun is canceled, it indicates the ability to learn from the mistakes of the father or authoritative figures. If these natives succeed in doing so, they avoid doing mistakes that could cost them dearly.

With that being said, they learn how not to let their ego get in their way and make decisions according to situations and not personal benefits.

Increase Confidence

As Sun signifies confidence, the fall of it in Libra indicates lack or loss of it. Hence, people with this combination struggle to develop self-awareness (identity) along with courage in their lives.

Moreover, as Sun falls in the 3rd sign from their own sign Leo, it indicates having a lack of courage, willpower, and valor. It also indicates lacking the power to take action and put in hard work.

As a result, they should always put extra effort to motivate themselves in order to meet their goals.

Due to the lack of willpower followed by possible unethical attempts to become successful, they often face failures in their pursuits as well as frequent frustrations in their lives.

To avoid a series of events that lead to a loss of confidence and sense of identity, it is important to think many steps ahead and avoid small mistakes that could lead to major disasters. When there is no damage to name, fame, and dignity, then confidence remains intact as well.

A dignified Venus is capable of diminishing these negative results easily. To be specific, a dignified Venus is able to direct the energies of the weakened Sun to more ethical paths which reduces the number of failures from scandals and such.

When the debilitation of Libra Sun becomes canceled, they learn through frustrations and failures that it is important to attain goals through ethical and moral ways which ultimately ensures long-lasting success.

As soon as they regain their confidence, they are not afraid to fight through adversities righteously to fulfill their ambitions.

Morality & Diplomacy

One of the main reasons why they experience failures, frustrations, and delays in their pursuits is that they have a habit of chasing their dreams in a selfish way that is not dharmic or righteous which hinders the process of success.

The reason for low morality is the weakness of the Sun, which naturally signifies righteousness, truth, and light as being the ruler of the natural 5th zodiac sign Leo.

Moreover, Libra symbolizes balance which in turn signifies equity, diplomacy, law, and regulation. The fall of the Sun produces a person who lacks diplomatic qualities which makes them seem unbalanced, and uncompassionate which causes being unliked by society temporarily.

With that being said, Libra Sun natives often express themselves in a very criticizing and stingy way which directly offends others. Most often, offending others is their subconscious desire to recompensate their sufferings on account of causing suffering to other living beings.

The best remedy for the fallen Sun is to get involved in spiritual topics and practice living a righteous lifestyle which will boost prosperity a lot in the long run.

If the cancellation of debilitation occurs, such individuals are able to prosper in society or marketplaces despite their unethical way of expression or pronunciation (3rd disposition of communication) of their ideologies.

In fact, they are often renowned for their critical and often offensive words. Best examples who have Sun in Libra while debilitated are Snoop Dogg and Gordon Ramsay.

Avoid Hypocritical Criticism

The 3rd disposition created by Sun from its own sign also causes being hypocritical. It is because the 3rd also denotes communication and the fall of the Sun causes an immature manner of communication.

As a result, due to damaged egos, envy, jealousy, and excessive criticism, these natives are prone to talk on unproductive topics about the faults or mistakes of others.

They are also prone to criticize others’ appearances, behavioral patterns, and other details and waste energy on useless gossip.

While they talk about the mistakes of others, they have the habit of altering reality for their benefit. For instance, they perceive the mistakes of others as intentional, while it is not.

Additionally, they might criticize others for doing something immoral while they are committing unethical acts themselves.

With the canceled debilitation of Libra Sun, these traits are converted into benefits. Namely, such individuals know how and when to strategically harness criticism that actually promotes their ideas or success.

One great example is Gordon Ramsay, who has Libra Sun with the cancellation of debilitation, and who is able to harness criticism honestly and productively to promote social well-being and justice. In this case, hypercriticism is temporary or absent at all.

Cancellation of debilitation also restores the dignity of the soul which indicates that they actually harness strict criticism to battle injustice, immorality, or simply nonsense matters.

Avoid Being Scandalous

The immature communication is also expressed in society by intrigues created by these natives. Sun can make them shine in public, but this fame almost always involves some controversy, scandals, or intrigues.

In fact, Libra signifies sensuality and pleasures. In this sign, Sun gets weakened because of feeling uncomfortable with dealing with such issues. Intimate life should remain private but Sun in this sign tends to put the spotlight on such topics.

As Sun is fallen, the spotlight often involves certain kinds of negativity which leads to various scandals mostly involving relationships, beauty, or sensual matters.

That is, such natives often talk about private issues about sensual life publicly which gives rise to lots of gossip and awful situations. While they talk about such matters, they do it hypocritically. For instance, they might accuse others while attempting to was themselves out of the quilt.

Repel Greed & Envy At All Costs

Sun is all about passion, Libra represents worldly desires, while the 3rd disposition denotes ambitions.

As Sun is negatively placed in a sign ruled by Venus (wealth & luxury), natives with this combination are in danger of becoming addicted to wealth according to Sidereal Vedic astrology.

The combination of these three energies through the fallen Sun in Libra can put their focus too much on worldly matters which can lead to excessive greed or desire for more earthly benefits.

Practically, it all starts from the completely normal and natural humanistic urge to gather necessary resources such as food and wealth.

To get more of it, more status and fame are also required. Sun shedding its vital energy on Libra indicates an excessive urge to restlessly grab all the previously mentioned resources which may cause damage to constraints that maintain harmony and social ties in society.

Because Sun is exalted in Aries it is most efficient in concentrating on spiritual values and righteousness of the 1st zodiac sign. In Libra, it feels uncomfortable, becomes lost, and because of that starts to hoard earthly resources and status in an attempt to attain fulfillment.

However, the crux is that Sun never feels fulfilled in worldly matters which initiates the endless circle of rinsing and repeating the process of hoarding.

Being led to the trap of greed also triggers other side effects such as ingratitude, envy, and lack of natural empathy.

When they face failures, difficulties, or delays, they are in danger of developing jealousy against those who are prosperous instead of clapping for them and waiting for their turn to put in hard work to succeed.

In the case of an ill-placement of Venus, they have increased chances of remaining very selfish and immoral. It is because weak Venus misguides their already damaged energies of this combination.

When Venus is also negatively placed in a chart, they face a lot of unnecessary expenses and financial issues in their lives. They must learn to release their greed and excessive attachment to materialism because it only attracts issues in their lives.

With that being said, greed not only causes financial issues but also issues in relationships with other people. Because of greed, they can also commit many immoral acts against others who are successful.

It is crucial for Libra Sun natives to acknowledge their deep wounds. By doing that, they can work with themselves which helps to release grief and heal their ego – when they succeed in this, they start to attract a lot of abundance in their lives.

After all, Sun is in the sign of the planet of luxury Venus which has all the potential to bless with success and prosperity. So when Libra Sun natives learn from their mistakes, they could become extremely prosperous in their lives. Many times our deepest weaknesses are our best teachers. When we learn, we evolve.

Perhaps their low confidence and lack of belief in themselves are what cause jealousy not that they are actually evil.

Greed, in turn, can be caused by failures and delays which can develop strong fear which bases on false thoughts that they never fulfill their worldly desires. As a result, they start chasing them restlessly without noticing the mistakes they make.

When greed is removed from the equation and becomes not a big problem, it automatically removes other ill side-effects caused by it.

So it is important for these natives to acknowledge that they are not evil but just have many lessons to learn. They must also learn to remain on a moral path to reduce the baggage of bad karma and increase the speed of success.

Speaking of which, if the cancellation of debilitation occurs, it makes it much easier for these natives to release negative energies from their souls and march confidently toward a bright and fortunate future.

Trials In Relationships

Libra is naturally the 7th sign of the zodiac and represents relationships and marital bliss. The debilitation of the Sun in this sign also damages these significations.

That is mainly because Libra Sun signifies finding value, self-awareness, and courage through a partner, romance, or business. This is very unnatural for the significance of the Sun as it is meant to find its value in the word of God and righteousness (Aries).

The truth is that God is always constant and upright while people of earth are born with their natural faults and tendency to sin. Hence, especially these natives with Libra Sun, who have sensitive hearts, must always strive to put God first, and then a better relationship follows.

This also means that whenever these natives put excessive trust in someone to develop a sense of worthiness, they lose a lot of vitality when that someone makes a mistake. Speaking of which, a fallen planet of truth, the Sun, indicates that they have a tendency to choose wrong partners continually due to incorrect ideologies regarding that matter. Classics state that these natives put world matters first which is the prime reason for repeating the same mistake all over again.

So the pinnacle of this combination regarding relationships is to learn to choose a life partner who is actually honest and whose beauty starts from inside and avoid people who only shine from the outside. Libra Sun shows a tendency to prioritize status over sincerity. Therefore, the most important matter to learn is to detach from materialistic benefits in order to find fulfillment in one’s soul (Sun).

The Last Prophet [PBUH] exemplified the perfect character of a spouse who follows the guidance of God [SWT]. He is reported to have said: “The best of you is the best to his wife and I am the best to my wife” .

At-Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah

The best way to turn all struggles into positives is to follow priceless advice form The Last Prophet [PBUH]. This advice consists of a very simple, yet powerful and important factor, which is to find a partner who puts God first and persists in this. This proves their sincerity and righteousness, which heals all the possible weaknesses of Libra Sun natives. One great example of the manifestation of this effect is the relationship between Bruce Willis (Aries Mars) and Demi Moore (Libra Sun).

It also means that building worth on someone causes the foundation to collapse often leading to great internal turmoil which causes delays, struggles, and temporary loss of vitality.

When there are too many events causing loss of vitality it can be very overwhelming and distract from their purpose and duty (for some time, but that time is priceless).

In addition to that, Libra Sun natives have very high expectations regarding the attention they get. Namely, they need a whole lot of pampering and attention to feel fulfilled.

Sometimes they might become too ungrateful and fail to notice the blessings they already have. It leads to situations where no matter how much affection they receive, it is just not enough for them leading to disappointments and ego issues in relationships.

As Libra, the 7th sign also signifies sensual pleasures with a partner, it indicates some deficiency in this matter as well.

To be specific, they might be talking about sensual matters too much and make it a top priority above everything else, leaving true feelings totally out of interest. With that being said, they are likely to be involved in very dirty pleasures and other related activities.

Furthermore, they might also develop immoral sensuous addictions. That is because the 3rd disposition represents desires commonly with the 7th sign Libra.

They might be involved in various marital scandals because of immorality regarding satisfaction, desires, and excessive enjoyment of pleasures.

To avoid major problems in conjugal life, it is important to try to develop gratitude for every little blessing they have. This can break the chain of unfortunate emotions regarding feeling a lack of affection.

Most importantly, surrendering to God and seeking worth through the almighty is a must as It guarantees fewer disappointments as long as ethical conduct is maintained.

However, when Venus, the ruler of Libra, is well positioned, it is able to save Sun from giving negative effects. In the situation of the positive Libra Sun example, the native is very justice-loving and respects equity in the relationship.

The same quality of the character attracts a righteous and justice-loving life partner with whom to share a great life path.

In fact, it is very auspicious for Libra Sun people to form relationships because it will help to balance out the ego, improve self-esteem, and become a better version of themselves in the process.

Neecha Bhanga Raja Yoga Sun

If the birth chart fulfills the cancellation of debilitation, Sun in Libra can produce immensely positive results. That is to say, if Venus, the ruler of Libra, which is conjointly the guiding planet of Libra Sun, is well placed (in the friendly, incl. temporarily friendly, neutral, or exaltation sign) it is capable of directing the energies of Sun in an auspicious way.

As a result, the native overcomes bad effects and converts initial weaknesses into huge strengths. That is why the guiding planet is always important and significant in any chart.

Another condition that is a blessing in disguise is the cancellation of the debilitation combination in the birth chart. Furthermore, if this cancellation leads to the formation of a very powerful Neecha Bhanga Raja Yoga, it mitigates the negative effects that are written in this article and converts them to positive ones.

With that being said, this powerful yoga blesses with affluence, power, authority, wealth, entrepreneurial wisdom, and immense success in ventures.

It also indicates that society is able to recognize their uniqueness and they receive a lot of recognition as a result, which they truly desire, according to the natural nature of the Sun.

Society notices their uniqueness because the cancellation of debilitation indicates their ability to convert negative ego to positive ego with the help of valuable experience. Not only this ego becomes positive, but it also becomes very strong which increases confidence tremendously.

As a result, they also become very diplomatic, compassionate, and harmonious over time which makes them admired by society. They receive much reputation and honor as a result.
