Encyclopedia of Vedic Astrology: Planetary Transit: Sarvato Bhadra Chakra, Chapter XII, Part - 3

12.3 Methodology of interpretation

12.3.1 Nature of Planets: The planets can be divided into two categories- Malefic & Benefic. Saturn, Mars, Rahu, Ketu. Sun, Mercury in association with malefics and waning Moon are natural malefics, while Jupiter, Venus, unafflicted Mercury and waxing Moon are natural benefics. Any planet can become functional malefic/ benefic depending on its placement in and lordship of benefic/ malefic house.

12.3.2 Vedha/ Aspects: In Sarvato-Bhadra Chakra, Vedha (obstruction)/ aspect of a planet depends on its speed. When a planet is retrograde, its aspect is towards right (backward); while a planet in direct motion at normal speed has aspect in front (opposite) direction and when in high speed, it is towards left (forward) direction. The Sun & Moon are always in direct motion and have left (forward) aspect; while Rahu & Ketu are always retrograde and have right (backward) aspect. However some astrologers feel that these four planets have all the three kinds of aspects. The other five planets- Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus & Saturn, are sometimes slow, sometimes fast and at other times retrograde. To determine the nature of an outer planet- Mars, Jupiter or Saturn, and its speed, one should note its placement in the chart with respect to placement of the Sun. A planet moves in normal motion, when placed in 3rd or 4th house from Sun or the Sun is placed in the 10th or 11th house from the planet. A planet moves with high speed when placed in 12th, 1st or 2nd house from the Sun and a planet may move in retrograde motion while transiting in houses 5th to 9th from the Sun. The movement & motion of Mercury & Venus needs to be finalized with the help of Panchang.

The Vedha/ aspect produced by a benefic planet gives good results, while aspect by a malefic planet cause bad results even if they may be in their exaltation/ own sign. The left and right aspects lead to aspect on all five components of the Chakra as mentioned in Para 12.2.1, while front/ opposite aspect causes aspect to Nakshtra only. For example, on 1st Jan 2012, Jupiter in Ashwani Nakshtra will have aspect on P. Phalguni Nakshtra & Saturn in Chitra Nakshtra on P. Bhadrapad Nakshtra, while Sun in P. Ashada Nakshtra will have aspects on all the five components in left/ forward direction. Some astrologers feel the luminaries aspect in all three directions.
