Exaltation of planets vedic astrology

Sun : Sun is exalted in the sign of Aries and Sun is debilitated in the sign of Libra. Moon : Moon is exalted in the sign Taurus and Moon is debilitated in the sign Scorpio. Jupiter : Jupiter is exalted in the sign of Cancer and Jupiter is debilitated in the sign of Capricorn. Venus : Venus is exalted in the sign of Pisces and Venus is debilitated in the sign of Virgo. Mercury : Mercury is exalted in the sign of Virgo and Mercury is debilitated in the sign of Pisces. Saturn : Saturn is exalted in the sign of Libra and Saturn is debilitated in the sign of Aries.

Rahu : Rahu is exalted in the sign of Gemini and Rahu is debilitated in the sign of Sagittarius according to one belief of astrology. Rahu is exalted in the sign of Taurus and it is debilitated in the sign of Scorpio according to another belief of astrology. Ketu : Ketu is exalted in the sign of Sagittarius and Ketu is debilitated in the sign of Gemini according to one belief of astrology.

Ketu is exalted in the sign of Scorpio and it is debilitated in the sign of Taurus according to another belief of astrology. Moving ahead, the placement of a planet in its sign of exaltation only indicates that the planet is very strong and the results produced by this planet are going to be significant ones.

But those results may be significantly positive or significantly negative depending on the nature of such exalted planet in a horoscope. For example, exalted and positive Saturn is capable of producing strong positive results regarding the significances ruled by it, regarding the house it is placed in and regarding the planets and houses it aspects. On the other hand, there is almost no planet in a horoscope which may be as destructive as negative and exalted Saturn.

Malefic Saturn placed in Libra can be destructive, very destructive or extremely destructive and it can completely destroy the significances of the houses and planets under the effect of its placement or aspects. I have personally witnessed many cases where Saturn is exalted and negative in the horoscope and the natives are suffering from great pains and difficulties in different fields of their lives depending on the placement of such malefic exalted Saturn in their horoscopes, as well as depending on the overall tone of their horoscopes.

The most surprising as well as the most upsetting thing is that most people suffering due to such negative exalted planets are finding the cause of their miseries and sufferings in some other planet. This is because these people believe that an exalted planet simply means a strongly positive planet and it is never supposed to cause any harm. Due to this misconception, they are not able to find the planet responsible for their sufferings till late in their lives, and sometimes throughout their lives.

These people just keep guessing about which planet can be the cause of their sufferings and misfortunes. In some cases, their misconception about an exalted planet in their horoscope is so strong that they are not willing to believe even an astrologer who tells them that an exalted planet in their horoscope is working negatively and it is the root cause of most of their problems.

Such people refuse to believe this astrologer and they look for some other astrologer who can find the cause of their problems with some other planet which is not exalted. When it comes to find such planets, the easiest planets in a horoscope to blame for all the sufferings, misfortunes and problems are debilitated planets. Talking of debilitated planets draws attention to one more misconception that prevails strongly among the people interested in astrology.

Its either a friend or neutral. All these 3 planets are in Utra. Should it be wearing a stone or donation? I am really confused about this? I will really appreciate if you give your suggestions on this or point me to any of your published documents about it. I have a quick question. Do you think, or are there claims in the astro books you have read that when a planet is not in the house of debilitation but is close to it say, the next house , the debilitative nature is still present but would not be as high as it would have been had the planet been in house of perfect debilitation?

For example, Sun is debilitated in Libra, but would it still be somewhat debilitated in Virgo — at least would it be less powerful in Virgo than in, say, Taurus or Gemini? In other words, I want to know if debiltation and exaltation are an all or nothing phenomenon or if they are gradual — waxing and waning as they get near or moving away from their maximum potency. When a planet is one sign before its fall, it starts of become weak as its approaching its fall. ANywhere in between, simple mathematical calculation. What will be the effect. Can u please tell the effect of planets ,which is having high power in ruling the house.

Yoga means a combination. Debilitation or other dignity just represents the strength of the planet s and hence the strength of the Yoga s. In the summary chart above for dignity, I believe for Mercury is inadvertently tabulated wrongly. Please double check and let me know. Dear Sir How do we should consider the rashi strength of planets like Saturn, Jupitor or Rahu, as they remain in one sign for more than a year. Like if Saturn enters in Makar rashi then people having birth for next 5 years will find Saturn in its own sign in their natal chart…!

I have Jupitor in Makar rashi along with Mars with 9 aunsh difference in 10th house, so shall we consider Jupitor as week, but then so many people taken birth in that one year will have debiliated Jupitor. I have raid this entire blog and have really impressed with all the answers, hence to enhance my understanding of the subject I aksed this question. In Jupiter dasa, he became president and previous to president, he had a strong rise in politics from a nobody to a senator and then president at a young age.

Saturn joins Jupiter in lagna causing sasa mahapurush yoga and making Jupiter a neecha bhang raj yoga. In addition both Jupiter and Saturn have an exalted moon in 5th house trinal to them. Hello Vivek, When natural benefics are retrograde in the natal chart, what is your observation apart from their unpredictability, tending to mimic a conjuct planet which I guess would be common to all planets regarding their ability to do good?

Also, during the forward motion in gochaara of these planets, would I have to factor in the the natal retrogression? Typically the retrogression of jupiter is less bad than venus. Example, Pisces asc, Budhan in Virgo? Both are in MKS but the yogas they form are strong. Is MKS secondary? Yes, MKS also does not affect the planet and or yogas themselves, they give some damage to the involved bhaav. However in this case Saturn in own house and navamsa and hence sasa mahapurush yoga.

Thus overall the negatives are lesser than the positives. He might have some friction in relationships that is not obvious enough to the public.

What happens to the 7th and 9th? This main planet s dignity and placement will be paramount in a horoscope. When this planet is very powerful, the strength of the entire horoscope elevates to some extent. Hi vivek sir I recently read b v raman book on notable horoscope. Any planets here manifest in the extroverted part of life for an individual. Thanks vivek sir. War is technically true within 1 degree. Hello sir, what happen,cancer asendent Jupiter 19degree with ketu 6degree in lagna and saturn 0degree with rahu in Capricorn.. For libra ascendant if venus placed in 8th house of taurus along with mercury and sun..

Hi vivek sir Does the concept of sign exchange work in divisional chart? How would a Gajakesari yoga be for libra lagna which has Jupiter and moon together with rahu in 11th house of leo sign.. I forgot to mention it is for a virgo ascendant and I would also like to know if at the age of 20 rahu mahadasha is heavier than older age. Furthermore, virgo ascendant degree is 14 and Mercury is 14 degree in Taurus with sun and degree of sun is 3.

However if moon and mercury are strong, then Rahu can not control the emotions and intellect and thus does not damage much. Example mars exalted means the energy is disciplined, focused and dedicated and the temper and impulse as the negative parts of mars are controlled and channelized. Hello VS: I read the following in the web. Own rasi of a planet e. One is most natural and comfortable at home. That is exactly what a planet in own rasi is. Moolatrikona of a planet e. One is powerful and duty-minded at office.

Exaltation sign of a planet e. So an exalted planet is like an excited person at his favorite picnic spot. Debilitation sign of a planet e. A debilitated planet is like an unhappy person stuck at a place he hates. I am thinking.. Can you kindly comment? MK means it feels as if its in it own place where it has to execute its main work. Dear VS, for this same exalted Mars, if its retrograde, how would its characteristics change? Thanks AJ. Any retrograde planet inlcuding rahu and ketu will act more like its sign depositor. So how well saturn is placed, where its placed, its shadbal and dignity etc will now become very important.

Thanks VS, since this exalted retrograde mars will behave more like its rashi depositor, will it also behave like the planet its conjunct with just like rahu ketu do coz they are also retrograde? How do we explain the seeming contradiction that planets sitting in same bhav are temporary enemies? Say 9th lord and 10th lord are Moon and Sun and doing a Rajayoga in 10th house in Leo. No such coloring. A raj yoga remains a raj yoga.

If in a chart of virgo Lagna…sun and ketu in 1st house of virgo and rahu in 7th house of pieces becomes vargottam in navamsa with rahu in 1st house of pieces lagna and sun and ketu in 7th house of virgo all in good dignity so would these 3planet give harmful results since ketu and rahu gaining strength in 7th house is bad for marraige and etc. Saturn is in 7th house of cancer. Sun is in 10th house — libra.

Can a person expect marriage or career support during this period. Venus with 17 degree in aries asc chart in purvafalguni nakshtra pada 2 in 5 house of leo indicates beautiful spouse? Mars is missing. Cannot understand how. Perhaps a Typo. Rahu and mars are enemies and rahu and mercury are friends, if that is what you intended to ask.

No mars and mercury are inimical to each other, especially mars considers mercury as enemy. Mercury considers mars as neutral. For aries lagna if 4planets are placed in 6th house of virgo sun Jupiter and mars if placed well in the chart can still give good results. Jupiter is in 7th house of libra and mars is in 8th house of scorpio..

Is it true that if some1 has exalted bhagyesh lord of 9th house of d1 chart in shastima chart one will have luck to achieve the desired goal of his life…. Hi VS, This is my second question on your blog. I am completely aware that personal horoscope related questions are not entertained, but the query is based upon my horoscope without making it personal..

Since I am facing lots of problems in my career regarding growth for last years, I am compelled to accept this fact. But would really like to know from you that is it the real truth? Does any planet in any rashi below 3 degrees becomes poor, as all the 4 movable rasis are vargottama within first 3.

Is strengthening a malefic in the malefic 11th bhaav good? Regarding the temporal relationship, it is said that if a planet is in 2,3,4,12,11,10 house from it it becomes temporal friend. My question is if in the 1st house planet A is there with 0 degree and planet B in the 4th house in 29 degree, so technically they are friends, so they are separated by nearly degrees, whereas if A would have been at 29 degrees in 1st house and B at 1 degree in 5th house, they do not qualify for friends, in this case they are separated by only around 90 degrees.

I think we need to see the two planets in degree terms rather than the house numbering, but what would bethe degree range or 90 degree on either side to consider a temporal friend? Example, the 8th lord sitting in the 9th or the 9th lord sitting in the 8th. Do you agree?

Exalted Planets vs. Moolatrikona (Planets in their own sign) In Vedic Astrology

Also the domain is important. Not always is the 8th domain negative. Thus mercury as 9th lord sitting in 8th in this case will not cause damage by itself and could actually give wealth depending on other factors. Hello sir, I have a basic question regarding neech bhang raj yoga In a virgo ascendant , mercury 24 deg and venus 7 deg conjunct in lagna but venus is combust as sun 29 deg is sitting in 12th house. No in this scenario the combusiton will be namesake due to the degrees.

Neechabanga yoga can still exist. Thanks very much. If at Raasi conjunction of two planets promises a yoga but those planets are separated at Bhava will that yoga works out or not. If one planet sits as 29 degrees in taurus and another at 1 degree in gemini, they are still conjunct. This relation apply to ruler planet too? Thank you! How to calculate Retograde power of a planet.


Is Jesta Balam and Retograde power or same. Ashtakvarga bindus when high help overall, however this is a secondary factor for a horoscope analysis and more relevant only for transits as opposed to general predictions. NBRY does not happen in non kendra houses. Only Neecha bhang can happen. Raj yoga occurs only if the bhang is taking place in a kendra from lagna atleast and ideally from moon also. If the depositor is also a general benefic, then even a stronger raj yoga occurs. Aplanet with 3. Depositor means constellation depositor or sign depositor.

I have said here many times. You have to look at the sign depositor then nakshatra then navamsa. All 3 have to be seen with most importance to sign then nakshatra then navamsa. Functional Nature means Benefic or Malefic. Fb means good bad or neutral by the house it rules in a chart. Some articles refer that the planet in highest degree is almost dead.

But as of i heard only Vakri planets is connected with past life pendings,incompleted wishes and all. Rahu is in Saggi. During the Venus Dasa, the lady developed cysts in the ovaries. Jupter has a -ve aspect on Venus and venus is bothered by Moon. Venus is a FM being 11th lord. Also, Jupiter is aspecting Venus -vely; Jupiter is about glands and expansion. What is your your opinion? Hello Mr.

Your revert shall be highly appreciated. In Cancer Ascendant , if mars is placed in 7th house with 29 degree , will it give results of 7th house or 8th house? In such case coral can be wear or not ,, if only financial aspect is concern? If in bhaav chart, Saturn moves from 9th house to 10th house for a Gemini ascendant, then: 1 During its MD, Saturn will give results only of 10th house and not 9th house.

Is this correct. One follow up on the above — If Saturn does not move in chalit chart, but only the sign is changed in chalit. Eg- Saturn is 9th is D1 in Aquarius. Saturn still remains in 9th in Chalit chart but the sign mentioned in chalit for 9th and 10th is now Pisces. And Aquarius is not in any bhav in Chalit chart.


Shadbala, measuring planetary strength in Jyotish / Vedic Astrology

What is the significance of putting the sign number in a chalit chart? I use Astrosage. I have also seen it in JHora. I dint want to use my personal chart so went with the same example. In my d1 chart saturn-rahu is in 10th in simha. And 5 simha is not marked in any bhav meaning sun does not own any bhav in my chart. It feels more like KP. So why do they put the rasi numbers in a chalit chart — Is there a purpose for putting 6 in 10th and 11th bhav? I asked the following: If in bhaav chart, Saturn moves from 9th house to 10th house for a Gemini ascendant, then: 1 During its MD, Saturn will give results only of 10th house and not 9th house.

To which you replied as follows: 1. How about transit activation? D1 and chalit are not different divisional charts…they are the same rasi chart. Say Kumbha lagna 4 degrees. Guru sits at 20 degree in Gemini. Where am I going wrong? Please correct, many thanks. Again that is where the problem is. VS, Yes I have been doing case studies mainly on people who I have known personally for decades.

This is somewhat confusing. It seems that yogas, aspects, exaltation, debilitation, etc. Bhaav chart only activates the significations of the Bhaav for a planet that move in there. Your thoughts please. Is my understanding correct. Does it make sense. I keep telling you the effects will be mixed and you keep searching for a quick cookie and one size fits all theory. One has to do s of horoscopes and you will answer your own questions. Please let know. Thanks Vs. Sorry the delay in reverting to you on this. Any thoughts, regards, Narayan.

I have Rahu at about 22 degree and retrograde Saturn at about 13 degree in Sign of Leo in Second house. Please let me know which has lowest degree and more say in this conjunction. Do I have to minus both degree from 30 to arrive at degrees since both rahu and Saturn are retrograde now. Also, what does this signify for me and how can I can improve this conjunction to my benefit. Please comment. Saturn has a lower degree ofcourse at 13 as opposed to 22 of Rahu generally such a combination in 2nd house is not good for marriage or family life of the individual but the horoscope in totality has to be seen for a final conclusion.

Thanks for the reply.

Exaltation (astrology)

Could you pls elaborate how to strengthen Sun. I have sun in Aries in 10 th house. Could you pls explain how the conjunction of mars and rahu affects them as on the one hand they are enemies but on the other rahu accepts the features of the planet it conjuncts. Happy new year to you as well! Thanks a lot for your reply. Would it somehow rectify the Angarak combination or rather make it worse? But its only at 5 degree. For better understanding, how can one define the rising sign degree. The degree become the sensitive point of each bhaav considering the equal house system.

VS, Pl. How to judge Good dignity planet in placed Dusthana? Will it be good or bad? And good and bad for what — i. FM for any lagna can not be exalted in a good house. Can Dignity alter result of Functional nature of the planet? However strong and well placed planets will tend to give good generic effects and strong effects of the houses they rule.

Thanks VS! Or it will make the bad results more worse? Saturn in Aquarius 4 degree. Kindly tell me sir…. VS, is there a logic to FMs doing better in konas and not kendras? Something about them being Lakshmi sthaana? Secondly, do they do better in Upachyas if not exalted, example Guru in the 3rd for Taurus than Konas? Hello VSji — I have been advised to wear emerald and ruby for my lagna and rashi lord mercury retrograde that is in 5th house Libra conjunct Sun at 1 degree.

However, I am confused due to multiple thoughts and opinions including yours 3rd lord debilitated is good. I recently suffered a career setback that has affected my health because of taking a a risky decision based astrological advice given by two astrologers. Do you think I should wear both emerald and ruby? If you are gemini ascendant, go for green emerald only and not Ruby.

Sun will be a malefic functionally for the chart, no point in strengthening it.

Mars treats Saturn as neutral whereas Saturn treats Mars as enemy as per permanent relationship. You should always analyze the rashi depositor. After all that is the planet holding the said planet. Thanks VS ji.. Astrologers keep talking about 5th Dhrishti and navam dhrishti being bad and good and so on. Is the Dhrishti of each planet predefined? Like saturn always has Dhrishti on 3rd, 5th 7th just examples? So can you show me the Dhrishti of each of the planets as to which house it aspects? Saturn aspects 3, 7 and 10th not 5th. All other planets aspect only at the 7th bhaav. Hello VS: Can a combust planet be strengthened by a gem?

Example, Pisces lagna, Mercury in 7th combust. Venus is placed in 10th house. Is this combination is suitable to become lawyer or psychiatrist. Kindly advice. Thank you very much for the reply…. Will they be less malefic when in MK, or will their effects be stronger and depend on bhav? As always, much appreciate your wisdom.

Thank you for the excellent presentation of the material. I ended up making a job aid PDF from the material. Venus is in 3 degrees and Moon is in 7 degrees. I have a question that since Venus is in 3 degrees, do i need to stregthen Venus or is it OK?? I am kind of confused about how to ascertain relative strength of Rahu versus Saturn for considering phalit ownership of Aquarius. It will be great if you shed some light on this example. Libra lagna, Rahu conjunction in 10th with Mars. Saturn in 12th conjunct with Jupiter and Venus.

It is confusing for me as both are equally good in divisionals and Saturn is good in Shadbala. Only blemish is that it is in 12th in D1. Who do you think will dominate as owner of Aquarius? One is finishing work in 7th house another begining in 8th house. I got so many different opinions and I am very interested on your opinion.

Especially if jupiter is lagna lord also. Jupiter at 6 degrees will certainly be better than jupiter at 1 degree approaching its fall and also as it will be debilitated in navamsa as well at 1 degree. Hello sir, Stumbled on your website, while searching some answers for my own horoscope. Firstly, great work you have done over here, truly inspiring. My suggestion is for you to take things with baby steps.

Exaltation (astrology) - Wikipedia

Go thru the chapters one at a time and read simpler books and go from there. To be exact , Gemini Ascendant with Jupiter in 1st house is placed opposite to Sagittarus, which contains Saturn , and also since both are enemy to each other, so does it mean it may cause lot of hardship on native? Venus with 17 degree in leo in aries asc is strong?

Similarly, debilitation is the placement of a planet in a particular sign when it is so weak, sad, and angry that it mostly gives troubles to the native.

This is also helpful to determine which planet needs careful attention when particularly native is going through the vimshottari dasha of the planet. This study also helps to understand which gemstone, pooja, or any other ritual is required to maximize the strength of the weak planet or reap the maximum benefit from the strong planet. For example, Sun is full of fire energy and exalted in Aries, so in Aries this fire will be well focused and productive.

Sun is debilitated in Libra which is air element, when fire and air come in contact it acts like a forest fire which will destroy everything coming in the way. In such conditions, one has to take some precautionary measures.
