Effects of Planets

Part 1

1. A weak Sun as lord of the lagna, the year or of Muntha, would cause bad health, ailments of eye or skin, or misunderstanding with parents. The native would also have lack of courage or be humiliated.

2. A weak Moon (if also happen to be one of the five office-bearer), will give eye trouble, loss of wealth, peace of mind, status and of health. It may also cause, professional disappointments and failure in litigation. But a strong Moon, in Kamboola yoga involving lagna lord is good for health, wealth and peace of mind.

3. A weak Mars in same category, would give wavering mind, disputes with enemies or within family, lack of initiative, rheumatic pains & diseases, fear from government or fire, and miserable sexual life.

4. A weak Mercury in same category, placed in lagna, would make one lustful and cause mental aberration and gives loss of prosperity & obstacles in intellectual pursuits. However, strong Mercury will provide high caliber of intelligence, happiness to wife, gain of wealth & friends, and advantages from government.

5. A strong Jupiter in lagna (preferably as lagna lord) would give name, fame & wealth, good health, happiness to & from spouse & children, improvement in business, honour & favour from those in power and destruction of enemies. A weak Jupiter in lagna destroys all these good effects. A debilitated Jupiter deprives one of all comforts during the year.

6. A weak Venus in lagna destroys married life. There are no comforts & luxuries and relations with opposite sex are unhappy. But a Strong Venus gives good family life, increase in wealth, all types of comforts and honour from government.

7. A weak Saturn in lagna, brings reversal in job/ profession, troubles from wife, friends & servants, and windy ailments. An exalted Saturn in lagna, however, would give happiness from children and makes one popular. The Saturn if in its own sign provides good & robust health.

8. Rahu or Ketu in lagna, would cause fear from enemies, excess of expenditure, loss of reputation, stomach ailments, disputes and troubles from government or from children.
