LOSS OF STRENGTH BY PLANETS
We have learnt how to calculate the strength of planets in infancy or in old age. Further, the planets lose strength because of the following reasons:
a) A planet will lose strength to the extent of 75% if its mooltrikona sign house is afflicted. The loss of strength can be judiciously adjusted proportionately to the extent of affliction and to the strength of the lord of the house.
b) A weak planet placed in an afflicted house will lose strength to the extent of 75%.
c) An otherwise strong planet placed in a non mooltrikona sign afflicted house will lose strength to the extent of 50%. Such a planet may give good results in the first place and will cause setbacks later.
d) A closely afflicted weak planet will lose strength to the extent of 75%.
e) A closely afflicted otherwise strong planet will lose strength to the extent of 50%. Such a planet will give good results in the first place and will cause setbacks later.
f) A planet becoming weak due to close combustion will lose strength to the extent of 75% if the Sun is a functional malefic planet. Where the Sun is a functional benefic and it causes combustion to another planet, the planet will become 50% weak for the purpose of transit affliction. A combust planet in its sign of debilitation and placed in a malefic house will have only 10% power.
g) When planets are placed in the malefic houses, they generally lose strength by 50% besides suffering through the significations of the malefic house. The placement in the sixth house can involve the person in disputes, debts and can cause ill health. The placement in the eighth house can cause serious obstructions for the significations ruled by the planet. The placement in the twelfth house can cause expenses and losses for the significations of the planet.
h) When planets are placed in their signs of debilitation, they lose strength by 50%. When planets are placed in their signs of debilitation in both the birth chart and navamsa, they lose strength by 75%.
i) If in the Rasi chart a planet is badly placed and at the same time debilitated in navamsa it would lose strength to the extent of 60%.
j) A badly placed planet in its sign of debilitation will lose its power by 75%.
k) A planet debilitated in navamsa would lose power by 25%.
GAIN OF STRENGTH BY PLANETS THROUGH ASPECTS AND CONJUNCTIONS:
An exact conjunction or aspect by a strong functional benefic planet raises the strength of a well placed planet by 50%.
An exact conjunction or aspect of functional benefic planets in malefic house(s) can also raise the strength of the planet by about 25%.
A close conjunction or aspect of functional benefic planets in malefic house(s) can also raise the strength of the planet by about 12.5%.
The impact of conjunction and aspect by a strong functional benefic planet remains within an orb of 5 degrees and is at the rate of 10% per degree. At exact conjunction/aspect the impact is 50% and at a longitudinal distance of 5 degree aspect/conjunction the impact becomes zero.
An exact conjunction or aspect by a weak functional benefic planet raises the strength of the planet by 12.5% - just marginal. This benefit is only applicable for exact conjunction or aspect.
For the purposes of measuring the strength of a planet or the house, we first analyze the natal and transit strength. Then when reading the results of a planet, for any particular time, we also consider the transit strength of the planet besides the natal strength of the planet. If a planet is strong in the natal chart but is weak in its transit strength, it will not be able to show its results as a strong planet when it is weak in transit.
