Astrological Characteristics

Astrological Characteristics Weak planets do not provide good results in the areas ruled by the planet and are more susceptible to affliction. The following factors that contribute to planetary weakness:
  1. Placement in one of the malefic houses - 6th, 8th or 12th (unless it is its own 'Mooltrikona' sign).
  2. Placement in its sign of debilitation.
  3. Placement in the first or last 5 degrees of a sign.
  4. Placement in its debilitated sign in the ninth division of the natal chart.
  5. If it’s depositor is weak, i.e. it occupies the 'Mooltrikona' sign of a weak planet.
  6. If with respect to the Moon, it is within 72 degrees either side of the Sun.
  7. If it is closely accepted by any functional malefic planet.
  8. If the most effective point of the house that it occupies is closely afflicted by a functional malefic planet.
  9. If the most effective point of its 'Mooltrikona' sign is closely afflicted by a functional malefic planet.
The ‘Close Afflictions’ above refer to an orb of one degree or less.
  • An affliction is caused by a functional malefic planet, which is a planet ruling the 6th, 8th or 12th houses.
  • A weak planet can be afflicted by an orb up to 5 degrees from a functional malefic planet. However, a strong planet is only afflicted by an orb of one degree or less.
An exception applies when the aspect is from:
  1. The most malefic planet, an aspect from a functional malefic placed in the 6th, 8th or 12th houses.
  2. A conjunction with Rahu or Ketu (the Rahu-Ketu axis).
  3. A functional malefic that is also afflicted.
  4. More than one functional malefic at the same time.
The following table shows the houses and planets that control different aspects of life, according to Vedic astrology.
