NB: When the debilitated planet, having any of these cancellations, is also in the 1st, 4th, 7th or 10th houses then it becomes an even stronger planet as a result. Strengthening Weak Planets I recently gave a presentation of these cancellations at the British Association of Vedic Astrology's annual conference. ASTROLOGY IS A METAPHYSICAL SCIENCE The purely physical is the astronomy and the math. The meta, or beyond physical, is the mystical analysis. Nothing can be done without first observing the sky to get the exact placement of the planets in relation to their journey around the. In the realm of Vedic Astrology, planet Sun is considered to be the king of all planets. When a planet becomes combust in a kundli, its influence almost becomes negligible and due to its closeness with the Sun, it starts offering results accordingly. Such a planet becomes weak and is considered to be in an unfavourable state.
ASTROLOGY IS A METAPHYSICAL SCIENCE
The purely physical is the astronomy and the math.
The meta, or beyond physical, is the mystical analysis.
Nothing can be done without first observing the sky to get the exact placement of the planets in relation to their journey around the ecliptic. Each 13.20 of the ecliptic is a nakshatra or lunar sign. There are 28 ancient ones, and 27 modern nakshatras. The planets have to be somewhere along that circular path. Each of these nakshatras contains a cosmic energy that is transmitted through it’s light rays. The interrelation of each and the stacking of various patterns of light is what it takes to arrive at a pin pointed section of earth where you were born. Vectoring in they are the ingredients that come together to form your chart; your karmic code.
INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR SOUL ENCODED IN LIGHT
I know the concept is heady to say the least!
But how much we really understand about the cosmos?
At least the ancient ascended Masters left us the gift of Jyotisha to help us understand what is possible with our small brains.
SO WHAT ABOUT THE ORIGINS OF JYOTISHA?
The ancients, our highly evolved ancestors, or ‘Pitris’ from the Vedic tribe had brains developed to the degree that they could understand charts in their heads simply by looking to the sky to observe the planets. Imagine!! I aspire to such an amazing feat!!
SO WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A PLANET IS DIRECTLY BEHIND THE SUN?
This article deals with combustion.
When a planet is in the same line of the ecliptic of the Sun .within 5 degrees.
THE SUN IS HOT AND CONSIDERED A MALEFIC
The Sun in the astrology chart is called ATMAKARAKA , which means indicator of the SOUL of the chart.
The Sun is Hot or PITTA
The result is that the sun will burn anything that comes to close. ( Well in these days of intense solar flares, the energy extends further.).
Mercury is the the planet that travels most closely with the Sun and the highest chance of becoming combust.
WHAT IS COMBUST?
When a planet is within 5 degrees of the SUN.
WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS?
The integrity of the planet is compromised.
Your communication talents and skills will need help in this lifetime. Your timing is often completely off or inappropriately missing. Communication skills need help. You may also be prone to accidents and possible clumsy movement. This will define your karma and dharma in this lifetime.
Your love karma will challenge you. You may find your passion and excitement for love may drive others away if the combination is fire for example.
Venus combust in air could leave you lacking any real sex drive physically and leave your brain and a good conversation as your main turn on.
This is a rather dangerous combination.
Mars is a malefic like the Sun.
Mars is our aggression. This combination can result in an extreme imbalance in energy output.
NOW HERE IS THE KEY
By understanding your own chart. Finding humility. Being devoted to your soul evolution. You can use this information to ‘get a leg up’. Compare having this information to when you purchase a house and you have a house inspection and despite the weaknesses that you know about , you agree to go ahead with the purchase to work to repair and rebuild the weak areas.
Your discipline may be seriously challenged!
This is where the practise of yoga comes in .
Yoga is the sister science of Jyotisha and offered or left to us to help us understand how we can operate , manage and succeed in this world.
YOGA ASANA PRACTICE
If you commit to your practice; just commit. This means you do not have to consider if you are going to go to your yoga class or not. You simply commit and go. NO thinking about it. You will always be happy you did!!
Those with Saturn combust will need this lesson.
This is an interesting combination.
Child vedic astrology signs. Jupiter is the planet of expansion and luck.
Jupiter combust can take that away or at best make it erratic.
So , at first you may think you have a great Jupiter because it is in a good sign and with it’s friends; but if it is combust it will give you a challenge. Better to know what you are dealing with so you can take steps to manage in your favour.
When the Sun and Moon are close you are in a new moon. This has it’s own specific energy. It is challenging to have your Moon or your Mind with your Sun. This is called a dark moon and can result in a soul being very challenged to find themselves.
NOTHING IS BAD
Please do not think this way.
We are all here on a different section of the cosmic ferris wheel.
The most beautiful thing about this ancient sacred system of knowledge called the VEDAS is that it gives us explanation and tools for life on earth.
DO YOU HAVE COMBUST PLANETS?
Just check your Sun.
Find if there are planets that are within 5 up to 10 degrees of the same sign.
COMBUST IN THE COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS.
Whenever planets pass to close to the Sun there is an effect that we all feel.
BACK TO THE ASTRONOMY
As far as we know the ancient Pitris ( forefathers and mothers) did not have computers; rather super high intellect and physic ability and relation with our solar guardians.
They would look to the sky at the moment of birth of a baby and see that they could need see Mercury because it was too close to the Sun. Voila.Combust!
