Re: Which planet represents the ego in Vedic astrology?

Afflicted venus if associated with appropriate houses can indicate vanity, which is different from ego.

Ego is essential for worldly existence and not necessarily bad, rather useful and related with sanity! Ego functions get affected in those that are clinically insane (psychotics).

Egotism, on the other hand is bad and repulsive. Unfortunately, in common parlance folks usually confuse ego with egotism...!
