In Vedic Astrology, Each year is ruled by a form of 12 Sun Aditya (12 zodiacal signs). Varuna Aditya (God of the Rains & Waters, Earth and Sky) rules the Cancer zodiac sign. Also, referred to as the “Dark Sun” at night or the “Midnight Sun” during the day. He presides over the West Direction and becomes active after Sunset.
One can honour Varuna Aditya by chanting –
|| Aum Ghrini Varuna Adityay Namah ||
The jyotirling associated with the Cancer sign is Omkareshwar, so praying to Lord Shiva during this month with this mantra can bring fruitful results –
“Aum Namah Shivaya Namo Omkareshwaraya”
This whole month is auspicious to pray to Varuna after sunset or around midnight, facing west direction by chanting – Varun Gayatri
People born during the month of July are ruled by Deity Varuna Aditya – He roams the eternal oceans, ensuring that people adhere to moral behavior and set standards. They are always up to the task when something interests them enough. They can have high-ranking authority positions and produce great work. But can become overbearing and overly attached to their way of thinking. They don’t like it when people disagree with them and have the power to take action against their detractors. When they are happy, it feels like the energy of the sun. They often feel deeply with hyper-sensitive emotions.

The Sun transit in Cancer energy is inspiring, nurturing, and supportive. It’s a time to reflect on the past and take stock of our accomplishments. We can use this time to review our health habits, relationships, or finances for example. We may also find ourselves feeling emotionally sensitive and vulnerable so we should avoid confrontations with others as well as looking at upsetting subjects in the media or on social media. The best time to take stock of your life is when you are feeling good, healthy, and happy. It just isn’t natural for us to feel negative while we are coming up on the Sun. If you want to do something, say, fill out a budget, now is not the time to do it. Spend some time with friends this week and build your energy up instead of breaking it.
