Sun is entering Sagittarius sign on 16th December 2021 at 3:55 AM hrs and will remain there till 14th January 2022. Sun represents father, authority, fame, reputation, success, and heart. Apart from this, for an individual Sun will give the result of the house it occupies in one’s natal chart.
Sun’s transit is always important as it sets the timeline for the events destined and triggered by Jupiter & Saturn transit. Present Sagittarius transit is of significance because the Sun will leave Rahu-Ketu axis and transit Sagittarius to find himself in a rather comfortable position. But In Sagittarius Sun will be hemmed between Mars, Ketu and Saturn.
So, Sun will be transiting through a friendly sign but due to Paap-Kartari yoga, it will not be in a position to give the respite as expected. On a positive note, Sun’s dispositor, Jupiter, is transiting through Aquarius sign and is affliction free; it will reduce the malefic impact of Sun’s transit. One more important point to note is that the Sun will be transiting through Moola Nakshatra, ruled by Ketu and Sun will be exalted in D9 chart for the first 4 days. So, the Atmakarak gets a chance to re-energize itself on a spiritual plane. It is a time to rejuvenate ourselves. In general, the Sun’s transit through Sagittarius will be of mixed effects. Aries and Scorpio born people will get much relief.
Sun’s transit through Sagittarius, a Jupitarian sign, is termed as Khar Maas (bad month). In this month, our scriptures prohibit all ritualistic deeds (16 sanskar).

Individual Transit Impact – Methodology & Result
On an individual level, the effect of transit of any planet is analysed with reference to one’s Lagna/ Moon sign, birth nakshatra, and other planets cumulative influence.
Generally Sun gives good results while transiting through 3rd, 6th, 10th and 11th houses from Lagna/Moon sign. In other places, the Sun is not supposed to give good results. But these results are further modified by other planets’ transits position (Vedh/Vipreet Vedh), Moon’s sign placement at the time of Sun transit (Moorthy Nirnay), and Sun’s transit through nakshatra with reference to one’s Janma nakshatra (Tara Chakra). After all these modifications the final transit effect is known.
At the time of Sun’s entry to Sagittarius sign, Moon will be present in Bharani nakshatra, Aries sign. Moon’s placement helps us with Moorthy Nirnaya for various signs. Below table provides Moorty and Tara information for 12 signs:
