Dr. Shanker Adawal

6.1 Introduction

6.1.1 The Sun, Moon, Mercury and Venus are called inner or minor or inferior planets. Their transits are considered relatively less important because of their fleeting duration and nature. For example, the effect of the Moon lasts only for five to six hours, the effects of Mercury & Venus lasts for couple of days normally.  However, if either of these planets is retrograde, because of the triple transit over a particular point, its effect may increase up to a week as well. The Sun, though always direct, has its effect for about a weak. The transit of inner planets, may be for a much shorter duration, help in timing of events by an outer planet by approximately coinciding with it and reinforcing the nature of transit of the outer planet.

6.1.2 The Sun is a natural malefic (rather Krror) and separative planet. It combusts planets (other than Nodes) when posited in close range. The Sun is strong at Noon, 10th house and Aries & Leo sign,
The Moon is a great facilitator of any occurrence and benefic when waxing but malefic when waning. It is strong during night, in 4th house and in Taurus & Cancer sign. Mercury is a benefic but is prone to turn malefic when influenced by a malefic. It is strong at dawn, in 1st house and in Gemini & Virgo sign. The Venus is a highly benefic & feminine planet. It is strong during night, in 4th house and in Taurus, Libra & Pisces sign.
