Vishnu reposes for 4 months

Vishnu reposes for four months on the serpent Sesha Leo Virgo Libra Scorpio Simha Kanya Tula Vischika The Sun, lord of our solar system, has been identified in some Sanskrit stotras as Lord Vishnu but generally, it is with Lord Shiva that he is identified. It does not matter which of the Trinity he represents. The important point to remember is that he awakens the thirst for spiritual life, blesses one with divine knowledge, described as Gyana, which is why he has been described as Atmakaraka also (not Jaimini astrology where a planet with the highest degree becomes the Atmakaraka). Therefore, Sun is associated with philanthropic tendencies and has a Sattwick nature. http://www.journalofastrology.com/learn_astro/Learing_Some_Basics_of_Predictive_Techniques.html Caturmasya
