PLANETARY AVASTHAS (STATES)

PLANETARY AVASTHAS (STATES)

The planetary avasthas are the conditions in which a planet is placed.  The prominent avasthas and the results produced are as under :

a)   INFANCY:  Whenever the longitude of a planet in a particular sign is less than 5 degrees, it is said to be in the state of infancy. Such a planet is incapable of fully promoting/protecting its general and particular significations.

b)   OLD AGE:    Whenever the longitude of a planet in a particular sign is more than 25 degrees, it is said to be in the state of old age. Such a planet is incapable of fully promoting/protecting its general and particular significations.

c)   OWN SIGN:  A planet in its own sign is treated as strong and is capable of generating the expected results, provided it is otherwise strong.The own signs of various planets are as under: PLANET OWN SIGN:

SUN- LEO, MOON- CANCER, MARS- ARIES & SCORPIO, MERCURY- GEMINI & VIRGO,

 JUPITER- SAGITTARIUS & PISCES, VENUS- TAURUS & LIBRA, SATURN- CAPRICORN- AQUARIUS

d)   MOOLTRIKONA SIGNS  : : A planet in its mooltrikona (MT) sign is treated as very powerful, provided it is otherwise strong. Under the Systems’ Approach, the mooltrikona signs of various planets are as under:

PLANET MOOLTRIKONA SIGN SUN :          LEO
MOON :       CANCER
MARS :       ARIES
MERCURY:  VIRGO
JUPITER :  SAGITTARIUS
VENUS :     LIBRA
SATURN :   AQUARIUS

e)   EXALTATION:  The planets are in the state of exaltation in particular signs and give good results by promoting/protecting their general and particular significations, provided they are otherwise strong.The exaltation signs of various planets are as under :

PLANET EXALTATION SIGN
SUN  ARIES
MOON TAURUS
MARS CAPRICORN
MERCURY VIRGO
JUPITER CANCER
VENUS PISCES
SATURN LIBRA
RAHU TAURUS
KETU SCORPIO

f) DEBILITATION:  The planets are in the state of debilitation in particular signs, and therefore weak, failing to fully protect/promote their general and particular significations. Rather, there can be deterioration in their ruling sub-periods.The debilitation signs of various planets are as follows:

PLANET DEBILITATION SIGN
SUN LIBRA
MOON SCORPIO
MARS CANCER
MERCURY PISCES
JUPITER CAPRICORN
VENUS VIRGO
SATURN ARIES
RAHU SCORPIO
KETU TAURUS

g) DISPOSITOR:  According with Systems’ Approach, the dispositor is a planet in whose mooltrikona sign another planet is located in the natal chart. Suppose in a natal chart the Sun is placed in the sign Libra ruled by Venus. In this case Venus will be the dispositor of the Sun. No planet which is in a non- mooltrikona sign will have a dispositor i.e. the planet(s) in Taurus, Gemini, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces have no dispositor. If a planet is posited in Aries, its dispositor would be Mars; if a planet is posited in Cancer, its dispositor would be the Moon; if a planet is posited in Leo, its dispositor would be the Sun; if a planet is posited in Virgo, its dispositor would be Mercury; if a planet is posited in Libra, its dispositor would be Venus; if a planet is posited in Sagittarius, its dispositor would be Jupiter; and if a planet is posited in Aquarius, its dispositor would be Saturng)   COMBUSTION:  Whenever a planet comes very near to the Sun, it is divested of its brightness (luster). The said state is called combustion. While in the state of combustion, the planets fail to fully protect/promote their general and particular significations. If such a planet is weak on other accounts too, the significations ruled by them do not even take birth.The planets are said to be combust when they are within the below mentioned degrees on either side of the sun.

MOON 12 DEGREES
MARS 17 -DO-
MERCURY 14 -DO-
VENUS 10 -DO-
JUPITER 11 -DO-
SATURN 15 -DO-
