Awasthas of Planets
The beneficience or maleficience of planets can be determined in several ways and one of them is Awastha- meaning state or strength of planets. Astrological classics have mentioned many such types of Awasthas. However three of these Awasthas, which are more commonly used, are discussed below:

4.1 Baladi Awasthas: These include five types of Awasthas with their results as shown against each:

Name of Awastha
In odd signs
In Even Sign
Bal Awastha
0-6 degree
24-30 degree
¼ results
Kishore Awastha
6-12 degree
18-24 degree
½ results
Yuga Awastha
12-18 degree
12-18 degree
Full results
Vridha Awastha
18-24 degree
6-12 degree
½ results
Mrita Awastha
24-30 degree
0-6 degree
¼ results

Please note that when a planet is of less than one degree or more than 29 degrees in any house, it is supposed to be at the Brava sandhi and give almost no results.

4.2. Deepatadi Awasthas

4.3 Dasha effects of Awasthas: Add up the sign numbers of lagna and that of the planets under consideration. Double the total and add to it the number of years of Vimshotri dasha of the planet.
