The influence of the Sun on humans: solar radiation, benefits, harm and consequences


The sun is the largest visible object of the sky. Since ancient times, it is shrouded in a halo of mysticism. He was worshiped and brought gifts, hoping for his favor. With the advent of the technical era, people learned that this is just a hot gas ball that warms our planet. However, this does not reduce the influence of the Sun on man and his life.

The star that gives life

The sun is a star that belongs to the class of yellow dwarfs. Like the planets of the solar system, it rotates around its own axis. Since the Sun is not a solid object, but a gaseous one, its rotational speed is heterogeneous: at the equator it is 25 Earth days, and at a latitude of 75 degrees - more than 30 days. The sun has its own orbit, which runs around the center of the galaxy, and one revolution is 240 Ma.

The enormous force of this object causes hydrogen - the gas from which the star's body is made - to shrink in the depths to the point where thermonuclear reactions begin and hydrogen turns into helium. Nuclear reactions inside the center heat up to 16 million degrees. This energy, rising outward, gradually cools to 5780 K.


In the solar corona, the temperature rises sharply to 2 million degrees. It is the crown that creates the visible spectrum of sunlight. The radiation power of the star's surface is 63.300 kW per m 2 . Up to the upper part of the earth's atmosphere reaches 1376 watts, provided that the sun's rays are directed perpendicularly.

11-year cycles of solar activity lead to spots, flares and prominences on the surface. During these periods, magnetic anomalies occur on the Earth, and seismic activity increases. The negative influence of the Sun on the Earth and people is increasing.

Significance of the Sun in Astrology

In the human horoscope, the Sun is of key importance. The psychotype of a person depends on its location in the signs of the zodiac. Such qualities as generosity, generosity, energy, the desire to live for the benefit of others - a manifestation of the solar nature. There are provisions in which the sun manifests itself most fully.

Leo is a sign of the zodiac in which the Sun reaches the peak of its strength, endowing a person with a penchant for service to society, leadership. But also among the lions one can meet terry egoists, in which the solar power showed its wrong side - the desire to command others.

Aries - the place of exaltation of the sun. People born under this sign have inherent leadership qualities and stubbornness. They know what they want from life and have a strong motivation to achieve their goals. Ambition is one of the qualities that accurately describe Aries.

The influence of the sun on the fate of man

All are born with a certain combination of the position of the planets in the natal chart. It reflects the human psycho, as well as the lessons that will have to pass in life.

Knowing the position of the planets in the horoscope, a person refuses to overestimated expectations in relation to himself and his relatives. Conversely, understanding your strengths helps to more fully unleash the potential inherent in nature.


The influence of the Sun and the Moon on man is paramount. The moon is an indicator of the human mind. From her position depends on how stable the psyche of a person is, she is also a signifier of the relationship of a person with her mother.

The sun shows in the map the relationship with the father and is an indicator of the soul, its true aspirations.

The weak position of the Sun in the map indicates that the person will not have his own opinion and authority among those around him. He will have low self-esteem.

Naturally, in the absence of solar qualities one should not hope for success in self-realization. Therefore, the key to success in development will be the conscious cultivation in oneself of generosity, kindness, the desire to live for others, as well as a sincere desire to comprehend one’s own nature.

Sun and health in terms of astrology

Vedic astrology, when making conclusions about health, considers the position of the day-star along with other indicators. If the influence of the Sun on a person is bad, then he will have the following health problems:

  1. Increased or vice versa low blood pressure.
  2. Heart diseases.
  3. Early baldness.
  4. Weak bones
  5. High irritability
  6. Headaches and epilepsy.
  7. Vision problems.

The effect of the sun on a particular person can be determined by his appearance. The beneficial effect will manifest itself as:

  • strong build;
  • physical strength;
  • large forehead;
  • golden or dark hair;
  • wide chest.

If the influence of the Sun on a person is negative, he will have the following appearance:

  • asthenic physique;
  • sparse blonde hair;
  • slouch;
  • low immunity.

Of course, it is not only the Sun that affects the way a person looks. Any planet that is in the horoscope the owner of the first house or is in it leaves its mark on the exterior.

Sun Medicine

Lack of solar radiation affects the positive attitude. Everyone noticed that if there is not enough sunlight, then the mood becomes dull, joy disappears. From ancient times, a weakened patient was prescribed to be more in the fresh air, taking sun baths.

The spectrum of sunlight is harmful for pathogens of serious diseases, for example, tuberculosis.


The influence of the sun on human growth can be twofold. Lack of vitamin D, caused by a lack of sunlight, can cause delays in the development of children, leading to rickets. An overabundance of solar radiation is also detrimental to the body. It can be noted that people living in hot countries are not very tall.

Negative effects on the body

The terrestrial biosphere protects the ozone layer from the destructive influence of solar radiation. The last decades, scientists around the world are sounding the alarm associated with its decrease. An increase in solar radiation at the surface of the Earth has a devastating effect on human skin.

In addition to the early appearance of wrinkles, excess UV can cause cancer. At risk are people with fair skin. Therefore, they are recommended to sunbathe at a minimum in the early morning or evening hours. It is necessary to protect not only the skin, but also the retina of the eyes, which may also suffer from an excess of radiant energy.


Cheap glasses only give the appearance of protection. In addition to darkening, they should reduce the ultraviolet spectrum, invisible to the eyes.

How does the sun affect longevity

According to science fiction writers, the process of evolution on the planet occurs under the influence of solar radiation penetrating through the ozone layer. What do scientists think about this?

In 2007, the results of the work of the Psybernetics Research Group scientists were made public. They studied the influence of the Sun on people's lives. For 29 years, they surveyed more than 300, 000 residents of the state of Maine.


It turned out that people born during the period of peak solar activity, within the 11-year cycle, had a lower life expectancy. In addition, they had a greater susceptibility to disease.

The study led to the conclusion that surges in solar activity have a negative impact on human health.

Historical events and the Sun

The well-known Russian physicist A. L. Chizhevsky studied the influence of solar activity on man, including on historical events. He investigated the dependence of geopolitical events on solar cycles. The scientist found that the 11-year cycle in its intensity is divided into 4 stages. He also found that the peaks of human excitability coincided with the peaks of maximum solar activity. Having studied the 500-year history of various countries, he concluded that revolutions, wars, mass epidemics are directly related to the influence of the Sun on humans.


Chizhevsky wrote: “An astronomer who reads the history of cholera is unwittingly surprised by the fact that well-known periods of solar storms cause such catastrophic disasters and, on the contrary, years of solar tranquility relieve humanity from the fear of this unknown and indestructible enemy.”

The dependence of the psyche on solar activity

It turns out that an excess of solar energy can lead not only to the emergence of malignant tumors, but also affect the mental state. It was previously noted that the lack of influence of the Sun on the human body leads to depressive states. The lack of light in pregnant women can trigger the likelihood of mental disorders in future children.

The study of the dependence of mental disorders on solar activity revealed that during periods of solar storms exacerbations of diseases occur. Scientists attribute this to a significant emission of ultraviolet radiation, the level of which increases during these periods by 300%.

Over the past 55 years, the number of solar storms has increased. It can also be noted that tensions in society have also increased. There is less tolerance among people. Deviations of the psyche gradually become the norm.

Geomagnetic storms and suicides

From flares on the sun, the surface of our planet is protected by the ionosphere. During the passage of the solar wind through it, a magnetic pulsation occurs, enveloping the Earth. But it happens that solar flares are so strong that a magnetic storm occurs in the ionosphere. At this time, many feel headaches, malaise, weakness.


Russian scientist Oleg Shumilov published a study of the dependence of the number of suicides on magnetic storms. An analysis of the geomagnetic situation was presented, starting in the second half of the last century. Peaks of activity coincided with peaks of suicides. Statistics was given for the city of Kirovsk, located in the Murmansk region.

Shumilov does not insist that the cause of suicide is associated only with geomagnetic storms, but believes that the influence of the geomagnetic factor has been little studied.

Solar Activity Study

In support of Shumilov’s theory, New Scientist magazine cites the conclusions of scientists who conducted research in Australia and South Africa. They also believe that the depressive states leading to suicide can also be caused by magnetic fluctuations of the Earth's field, which is directly dependent on solar activity.

Thus, the magazine New Scientist says that it is necessary to conduct additional studies of the effect of the Sun on human health. For a full-scale collection of statistics on suicide cases, there is not enough information: Catholic countries are reluctant to publish similar statistics.
