What are debilitated planets?
The planets are in the state of weakness if occupying a specific sign and fail to promote/protect the characteristics and specifications ruled by them. In the state of debilitation, the planets are not capable of producing results expected to them. For e.g. Moon is debilitated in the sign Scorpio, restrict the characteristic of Moon and the house governed by the Moon.
The misconception is that the debilitated planets always give the results of miseries, delays, denial and losses. But the truth is that in some special circumstances the debilitated planets give the most desirable results as compared to other planets.
When the debilitated planets are beneficial:
Neech-bhang raj yoga:
- If the lord of debilitated sign is in its own /exaltation sign, and placed in quadrant/trine to ascendant/Moon sign, causes Neech-bhang raj yoga.
- In this case the debilitated qualities of the planet gets cancelled and become raj yoga. The native will be able to enjoy all good things in his life as per quality of such debilitated planet.
- For e.g. if in a horoscope the Moon is in Scorpio, in the sign of its debilitation, but The Mars as the lord of Scorpio is in the signs Aries/Scorpio/Capricorn and placed in quadrant/trine from ascendant/Moon, cancelled the negativity of debilitation of Moon, and gives very favourable and positive results of the Moon.
Vipareet raj yoga:
- Lord of 6th/8th/12th houses are posited in 6th/8th/12th houses, make Vipareet raj yoga. This makes high class raj yoga, and can able to providing good and favourable results.
- Any debilitated planet as the lord of inauspicious house like 6th/8th/12th is placed again in an inauspicious house like 6th/8th/12th gives benefice results.
- Due to this yoga a person will have long life, sound health, wealthy, prosperous and influencing personality.
- For e.g. in Virgo Ascendant, if Saturn as the lord of 5th and 6th house is being posited in 8th house in its sign of debilitation [Aries], then the Saturn may cause problems with progeny, education, and speculations, but it offers favourable and positive result and relief regarding diseases, enemies, maternal uncles, debts, employees, litigation, disputes etc.
- If the lord of 8th is placed in 12th house the person diseases will be destroyed, and he might have exceptional developed psychic powers.
- Exchange of signs between two planets causes Parivartan yoga.
- This yoga indicates rapid rise in life and the adversities of theses planets/houses turn into benefits especially in the transition period/sub periods of these two planets.
- For e.g. in a horoscope though Moon [in sign Scorpio] and Mars [in sign Cancer] are in their debilitated signs, gives good results because of their inter exchange yoga.
- In a horoscope the debilitation is relived by good and benefice aspect/transits.
- The placement of planets in the sign of its debilitation is only indicator of the strength of the planet.
- A debilitated planet can produce great yoga in a horoscope, if it is a natural functional positive planet. For e.g. Venus placed in 8th house in the Virgo sign can gives enormous prosperity and luxurious life to the native, besides being in the sign of debilitation and sitting in an inauspicious house.
- The favourable or unfavourable results produced by a debilitated planet generally lack the strength and significance which is needed to generate significant results, so they are called debilitated or WEAK. It should never be mistaken for the functional nature of the planet. Even a debilitated planet can give excellent results if it is a functional benefice and positive in nature and on other side, an exalted, malefic and negative planet can do four times more damage than a normal planet.
- Major planets like Jupiter and Saturn remains in a sign for a longer time, as compare to other planets. Like Saturn remains in the sign Aries for almost two and the half years. So we cannot judge the fate of all natives born in these two and half years all over the world, as negative and bad, due to the debilitation of the Saturn over this period.
