Which is the most powerful planet according to astrology and why?

There are three schools of thought: One say Sun, other say Rahu, last says Saturn. I am firmly in the SATURN camp.

Here’s my analysis if all three personalities:

Sun Personality: The Useless King: While Sun is the “King” of the solar system, he is a highly inefficient planet as per astrology. Typical Sun personality is “BIG HAT NO CATTLE” They humm they haw and they show off, but they are normally MORE NOISE than SUBSTANCE. They show off, throw a lot of threats and then do U-Turns when going gets tough. Here’s an example:

Rahu Personality: The Outlaw: Well for starters, RAHU LITERALLY EATS SUN FOR BREAKFAST. (In case you don’t know about the eclipses). If Sun is the King, Rahu is the Rebel , the outlaw, the outsider who is perpetually a threat to Sun. I have seen Rahu personalities with their dark persona dominate the Sun types very easily. Their power is their nuisance value and their ability to cause trouble in the existing world order, something like this guy:

Saturn Type: The Badass: While Bhrihat Parashara Hora Shastra (BPHS) claims that Rahu is the most powerful of all planets, several thousand times more powerful than Saturn, I humbly beg to differ. G. Vijay Kumar’s answer to Is Rahu more powerful than Shani Deva? Saturn people are often underestimated because they aren’t the flashy types. They prefer to do their work quietly and avoid attention and conflict as long as they can. But once they have had it, they have had it. However, when the chips are down, the Saturn personality can kick the Rahu/Sun types several times over. They are the real badasses. Sort of this guy.

Disclaimer: I do not drive any inference from the astrological charts of the world leaders. It is just the ATTITUDE that goes with the planet that has been highlighted using the person as an epitome. But drives the message home.

  1. I humbly beg to differ with you…Sun “the sakshat devata” controls everything..From photosynthesis to seasons ….From tectonic plate movements and formation of precious gemstones to creating havoc through thunderstorms ,draughts….Time or hora (I don’t know for some reason is attributed to Saturn) starts with sun …”cease the day” remember ???
    How about taking “MARCUS AERELIUS” instead of Donald Trump ????
    Come out of the movies dear honest astrologer sir.This is ketu speaking 😉
    And pardon my english.

    1. that’s a good scientific explanation. However, it is about the science that we really know…there is a lot that is unknown. I have seen in EVERY situation…Shani will beat Sun no matter what happens. Let me give a philosophical answer: LAW is above the King.

      1. Without the SUN , Even ShaniDev will cease to exist …. But , yes , ShaniDev can and will , bring you down to your knees someday in your life , for you to pay back for your past and present karmas .
