"How to Judge Debilitated Planets - Part I"
The classical texts/commentaries are in agreement that the debilitated planets result in losses, delays, miseries, etc. on the native. Still some classical commentaries like Jataka-Parijata, Phaladipika, etc. give combinations for cancellation of the state of debilitation of a particular planet if (i) its debilitation sign lord or (ii) the planet which has the sign in question as an exaltation sign, is in strength. These commentators further add that this cancellation of debilitation creates rajayogas, though with delay and the native rises in life. But in our experience, whenever the sub-period of a debilitated planet with debilitation cancelled is in operation, it worries the native regarding the general and particular significations ruled by it. For judging the results of a planet, first we should see the functional nature of the planet for a particular ascendant and then for finding out the extent we consider the strength of the planet in question. If a planet is a functional malefic and is placed in its sign of debilitation it will (i) delay the results of its significations (ii) will indicate problems as per nature of the house ruled by it (iii) indicate setbacks to the significations of the closely afflicted houses/planets. If a planet is a functional benefic but is debilitated it gives (i) beneficial results to a very limited extent (ii) fails to protect its significations when afflicted in the natal chart (iii) fails to protect its significations when afflicted by any functional malefic triple transit triggering influence.
When a debilitated planet is placed in a malefic house in a natal
chart and its longitude is transited by functional malefic planets irre
The debilitated Sun, weakens the soul/vitality, puts the father,
husband and the son to trouble and indicates stomach and cardiac
disorders. The debilitated Moon
indicates worries on account of property and domestic peace as well as
indicates harm to the mother and wife.
The debilitated Moon indicates health concerns arising out of lungs and
immunity disorders. In general, debilitated Mars makes a person short tempered,
less courageous, prone to injuries, muscular disorders and accidents. The debilitated Jupiter makes a person
selfish and divests the native of the power to adhere to the social
norms/morality. The debilitated Jupiter indicates health concerns arising out
of liver orders. The debilitated Saturn indicates delayed results and joint
problems. The debilitated and afflicted
Mercury makes one vulnerable to nervousness, speech disorders and
paralysis. Venus, when debilitated,
indicates loss of comforts, sickness to
CHART 1: Male born
The lord of the ascendant, the Sun, is just on the most effective
point of the fourth house and a
CHART 2: Male born
In this chart Rahu, Ketu and Saturn are close to the most effective
points of the houses of their location and they exactly afflict the houses
occupied and aspected including the most effective point of the seventh house.
They also make the planets Mercury and Moon weak as they afflict their
mooltrikona sign houses. The planet Mars
is in its sign of debilitation. Mars
rules the house of marital tie and inheritance.
This turns Mars utterly weak. The functional malefic planets, Saturn and
Mars, mutually a
CHART 3: Male born
The lord of the tenth house is weak due to placement in its sign of
debilitation. The Sun ruling income is weak
as it is in utter infancy and its dispositor is weak due to debilitation. Saturn is weak due to old-age and its
dispositor is weak due to debilitation. Jupiter is weak due to old age but it
benefits the weak Saturn to some extent due to a close aspect. The functional malefic planet Mercury is close
to the most effective point of the ninth house and afflicts the ninth and third
houses. The profession remained a
constant area of worry in the life of the native. The academic career was just average. During the sub-period of the Moon in the main
period of Ketu, the native lost his job.
Due to the inherent weakness of the Moon, which is unstable by nature,
the career of the native has always been changing and dissatisfying for the
native except during short intervals of trouble free times. During the sub-period of the Moon in the main
period of Venus, the native
CHART 4: Male born
Venus becomes weak due to old age, debilitation and combustion. It is well placed in the house ruling status. The badly placed Mars ruling the house of fortune is also debilitated. As Venus is close to the most effective point of the second house, its impact in the matter of status/job became pertinent. Jupiter becomes weak due to close affliction from Ketu and Rahu. During the sub-period of Venus in the main period of Jupiter, the initiatives of the native were such that they brought him humiliation; he was superseded and transferred outstation. The native was very tense regarding his job. The weak planets lacked capacity/power to promote and to protect their significations due to malefic transit influences.
CHART 5: Female born
The Sun ruling the house of fortune is in old age and occupies its sign of debilitation. The so called neechbhanga rajayoga would have been created as both Venus and exalted Saturn are with the Sun in the same house. The most effective points of the seventh and first houses are under the exact malefic influence of the most malefic planet, the Moon. The native had to face most unfortunate events in life. The significator for husband is placed in the eighth house while the most effective point of the seventh is suffering from an exact affliction. She was deserted and divorced during the sub-period of the Sun in the main period of combust and weak Saturn. The operating planetary period was of a debilitated planet ruling the house of fortune. No neechbhanga rajayoga was caused due to the so-called cancellation of debilitation of the Sun.
CHART 6: Male born
The lord of the eighth house ruling marital tie, longevity, nervous
system and easy gains occupies its sign of debilitation. The Sun ruling the vitality is weak due to
infancy. Saturn ruling the ascendant is
strong in the chart. The functional
malefic planet, Moon, ruling the house of diseases is weak due to bad placement
and closely afflicts weak Venus badly placed in the house of losses. Jupiter being the di
In all the case studies taken up in this chapter, the so called combinations for cancellation of debilitation of the debilitated planets were present but the same could not prevent the losses and mishaps. In our view, debilitated planets fail to promote and protect their significations until and unless they are strengthened and continued propitiatory remedies for the functional malefic planets are performed.
