RIDDLE ? – Bhola Nath Shukla Kanpur, Hon National Vice President, ICAS
Respected Dear astro lovers, for quite some times I am involved in astrology subject. I quizzed the following from me itself but unable to find satisfactory solution. I come before you, one and all, to suggest me where am I going wrong :
As far my knowledge suggests :
JUPITER, VENUS, MERCURY & MOON are termed as Natural BENEFIC Planets.
SUN, SATURN & MARS are termed as Natural MALEFIC Planets.
Some writers suggests SUN as KRURA and not MALEFIC.
When I assess the assigned lordship of houses of the said Planets considering Natural/Fixed Zodiac, I get different picture :
JUPITER (BENEFIC ) is assigned 9th and 12th house : The 9th house being Trine so the Benefic house. OK. But the 12th house is a Malefic house.
VENUS (BENEFIC) is assigned 2nd & 7th house: Both the houses are Malefic . MARAK Bhava
MERCURY (BENEFIC) is assigned 3rd and 6th house : Both the houses are Malefic .
MOON (BENEFIC) is assigned 4th house : Apparently BENEFIC house. Permit me to add that this house is House of HARM. It is also treated as NADIR. For the END OF LIFE this house is also suggested for study. Thus it gives me an
understanding of being a Malefic house.
On the other hand :
SUN (MALEFIC) is assigned 5th house : A TRINE. Benefic house. House of Purva Punya.
SATURN (MALEFIC) is assigned 10th and 11th house : 10th house is the strongest KENDRA.
Auspicious Benefic house. 11th house acts as a benefic house since it has been suggested that all planets posited here delivers benefic results. For one reason that 11th house may get the tag of MALEFIC house is because of being 6th to 6th.
MARS (MALEFIC) is assigned 1st and 8th house : 1st house is the KENDRA as well as TRINE. Auspicious Benefic house. And 8th is undoubtedly a MALEFIC HOUSE.
So, the Natural BENEFIC Planets because of their lordship over houses get malifience as well. And the Natural MALEFIC Planets get the Benefiance too.
When I assess the assigned lordship of the said Planet over NAKSHTRA’s, I again get different picture : See the Table :
PLANETS NAKSHATRA NAKSHATRA NAKSHATRA
KETU M x ASHWANI F B MAGHA F M MOOLA F M
Venus B F BHARNI F M P.Phalguni F M P.Ashada F M
SUN M M KRITIKA F M U.Phalguni F B U.Ashada F B
Moon B F ROHINI F B HASTA M B SHRAVAN F B
MARS M M MRIGSIRA F B CHTRA F B DHANISTHA F B
RAHU M x ARADRA F Dual SWATI F M Shatbisha M B
JUPITER B M PUNARVASU M D VISHAKA F M P BHADRA M M
SATURN M Eu. PUSHYA M B ANURADHA F B U BHADRA M B
MERCURY B Eu. ASHLESHA F B JYESTHA F M REWATI F B
M = Malefic M = Male B = Benefic F = Female
D = Dual Eu = Eunuch
All the Three Nakshatra’s under lordship of MARS (MALEFIC ) are BENEFIC.
All the Three Nakshatra’s under lordship of SATURN (MALEFIC ) are BENEFIC.
Out of the Three Nakshatra’s under lordship of SUN (MALEFIC ) One
is Malefic and TWO areBENEFIC.
Out of the Three Nakshatra’s under lordship of JUPITER (BENEFIC) Two is Malefic and One isDUAL.
All the Three Nakshatra’s under lordship of VENUS (BENEFIC)are Malefic.
Only, All the Three Nakshatra’s under lordship of MOON (BENEFIC) are BENEFIC.
I will add for your consideration that SUN is a MALE Planet whereas all the THREE Nakshatra’s under its lordship are Female. And MARS is a Male Planet whereas out of all the THREE Nakshatra’s under its lordship One is Male and Two are Female.
So after going through the above said would it be fair to consider JUPITER, VENUS, MERCURY & MOON as BENEFIC Planet always and SUN, SATURN & MARS as MALEFIC planet always. Or some exceptions are required while terming BENEFIC/MALEFIC planets ??
I invite the attention of readers towards the Article published in Astrological Magazine in June 1977 authored by Late Shri R Santhanam ji. He has meticulously explained about the Misconceptions relating to Planet’s Lordship over Nakshtr.
Elders & Astro lovers’ scholarly guidance and comments are solicited please.
