Polarity of Planets

 

A planet becomes positive with respect to the X house when

a) it rules the Sign on the X cusp, or

b) it rules the sign on the Ascendant, or

c) it is close to and above the X cusp (more in longitude than the cusp),

d) it is close to and above the ascendant cusp.

A planet becomes negative with respect to the X house when

a) it rules the sign on the IX cusp, or

b) it rules the sign on the XII cusp, or

c) it lies close to and below the X cusp (less in longitude than the cusp), or 

d) it lies close to and below the ascendant cusp, or

e) it lies close to and above the XII cusp.

Note:  If a planet has different polarities by rulership and occupation, ignore rulership.

In this Chart Saturn rules Capricorn, the sign on the x cusp. Hence positive. Venus lies close

to and above the X cusp. So the planet is positive.

Mercury is very close to , but less in longitude than the X cusp ( below the cusp).

Jupiter is also negative as it rules the sign Sagittarius on the IX cusp. Note that the planet gains negative polarity by being above the XII cusp too.

Signification

 

A planet signifies the houses it rules or occupies. Occupation is significant only if the planet is close to the cusp. In other words the planet must be in conjunction with the cusp. The orb of conjunction is 11 degrees in the case of the luminaries and the biggest of planets, Jupiter. For the other planets the orb is 10 degrees.

Study the following chart.

Su 2-16 IX 15-55

Mo   5-58

Ma 6-14   VII 19-52


The signs Sagittarius and Pisces are ruled by Jupiter, which are on the ascendant and the X cusps. Hence Jupiter signifies the ascendant and the X. Saturn signifies the XI and XII houses, by ruling Capricorn and Aquarius respectively. Being very close to the X cusp, it also signifies the X. Venus signifies III and VIII houses by ruling the signs Taurus and Libra. It also signifies VI by being close to the cusp within 10°. Mercury signifies VI house in addition to IV and VII houses.
 
Note: In Vedic astrology, the cusp is taken as the midpoint of the house, which extends to 15° on either side. In Western astrology, the cusp is the beginning point of the house. But we have found, in our research, that the planets exhibit their influence only if they are very close to the cusp. The cusp is taken as the midpoint and the house extends on either side of the cusp.

 

A planet becomes a Significator with respect to the X house when

a) It rules the sign on the X cusp (positive), or 

b) It rules the sign on the IX cusp (negative), or

c) Occupies the X house and is close to the X cusp above it, (more in longitude than the cusp) (positive), or

d) Lies close to the X cusp and is below it (less in longitude) (negative). 

 

Key Planet

 

Each planet by nature signifies certain matters in life, apart from the matters signified by it by rulership or occupation of a house. It is the key Planet (karaka) for such matters. Moon is karaka for mother, milk, etc. Sun is the key planet for paternal matters, medicines etc.

 

Aspects-positive and negative

 

The vibrations of planets are said to focus at certain angular distances called Aspects.

The orb of an aspect is the angular distance at which the influence of the aspect begins or ends  before or after the focal point.

Note: Whenever the luminaries and the biggest of planets, Jupiter, are in aspect to another planet,  a liberal orb of 2° more for major aspects, and 1° for minor aspects should be allowed. The same holds for separating aspects.

Combustion (Astanga)

 

Whenever a planet (other than the Moon) is very close to the Sun (within 10°), it becomes combust. The aspect to and by the luminary is to be taken into account.

X        21-32

 

It appears as though there is no aspect to Mercury by Jupiter and Saturn. But note that Mercury is combust and the Sun is in aspect by the two planets. Hence Mercury receives the rays of Jupiter and Saturn. And vice versa, Jupiter and Saturn get the rays of Mercury.

 

Unison (Samagama)

 

When Moon transits very close (within 10°) to planets other than the Key Planet, including the Sun, they  attain "Samagama". It is no more a conjunction. Moon gains the polarity of the associated planet. Like  combustion, the aspect to and by the luminary, should be considered.

There is no direct aspect by the Sun to the  Moon. But note that Jupiter is in Samagama with Moon and Sun in square to Jupiter.

Hence  Sun  .............>Square ....> Moon (Jupiter)

 

When a planet A is in aspect to B, it can be represented symbolically as A -> B and we say that A is related to B. We can say that "A is in aspect to B" or "B is in aspect by A". When A is in aspect to B, B need not necessarily be in aspect to A. This occurs because the luminaries and Jupiter have a greater orb than the other planets.

In the above chart, consider Mercury and Jupiter. The angular distance between the planets is  82°-38" =83°.

Jupiter aspects Mercury. The orb is 7°. The orb of square aspect is 5°.Jupiter being the biggest of planets, has a greater orb of 2° more.

So, Jupiter ----Square (90) ----> Mercury.

But Mercury does not aspect Jupiter, as the prescribed orb is only 5°. Jupiter is in square to Mercury is not in aspect to Jupiter.                

Whether the relation is positive or not is to be judged by multiplying the polarities of the planets and the aspect.

 

       
Mo  11-35   Ju  21-48
I     27-27 Me  20-37
Sa  23-51   X    Ma  12-00 Su  7-37

Ve  12-01

 

In the above chart, consider the relationship between Jupiter and Saturn with respect to the ascendant. 

Jupiter rules the sign Sagittarius on the XII cusp. Hence negative. Saturn owns the sign Capricorn on the ascendant and so the planet is positive. The angular distance is  152-03.

Jup (-) ......... 150 (-)........... > Sat (+) = + 

By multiplying the polarities of the planets and the aspect, the product is positive! So Jupiter bears positive relationship to Saturn with respect to the ascendant. 

Let us consider the relation ship between Mercury and Saturn w.r.t. the VI house. Saturn rules the sign on the I cusp and hence positive. Mercury is the lord of Gemini on the VI cusp and gains negative polarity. The angular distance is 123-14 ~ 120. 

Me (-) .........120 (+) ..........> Sa (+) = -. So Mercury is negatively related to Saturn w.r.t. VI house.
