Double Trouble Or Saving Grace?
In Vedic astrology a truly debilitated planet is said to give weak and unfavorable results. All of its significations and those of the houses it rules suffer, and it won't give the results of any yogas in which it participates in its periods and sub-periods. Conversely, when a planet is vargottama, or in the same sign both in the birth chart and the navamsha, this is said to be a source of great strength and empowerment for a planet. What happens then when a planet is both debilitated and vargottama? In this well researched article, master jyotishi, Marc Boney explores this paradoxical condition of a planet and provides guidelines for their interpretation based on the charts of many well known public figures, as well as those drawn from his own client files. An important read for anyone aspiring to become proficient in the accurate interpretation of Vedic birth charts.
