Is (Savitur) Gayatri detrimental for Lagnas inimical to Sun?

Savitru Gayatri mantra is appropriate for every spiritual seeker.

Savita is the effulgence of Brahman that fills the entire universe -
all the worlds with all the elements. Forget vaayu, agni, aakaasa,
Sun, Moon, Jupiter etc distinctions. All is filled with the brilliant
essence of Savita. Period.

Savitru Gayatri mantra is a self-realiztion mantra.

Now, if you are doing Savitru Gayatri mantra for a lower purpose such
as good scores in exams, good health etc, then theoretical analysis
based on astrology is useful. If you do it for its original purpose,
i.e. spiritual progress and self-realization, you can just forget

Ramakrishna Paramahamsa had Aquarius lagna owned by Saturn. He
experienced the Savitru Gayatri mantra to the fullest. The experience
of most people is quite incomplete with this mantra (though even a 1%
experience of this mantra is quite amazing).

By the way, you do not understand Vedic mantras by looking up
dictionary and grammar books and finding the literal meaning or
speculating on the esoteric meaning or purport. You understand Vedic
mantras by taking one mantra at a time and meditating on them with the
fullest intensity and deep focus as though nothing else exists in the
world and then whatever you experience at the pinnacle of your focus
when you let everything go (including your self-awareness) is the
actual meaning of the mantra.
