Functional Benefic and Functional Malefic Planets in Aquarius Lagna
To the person born in Aquarius lagna, Mars, Jupiter and Moon are evil, Venus
alone is auspicious; the combination of Venus and Mars produces Rajayogam.
Jupiter will not kill the person born in Kumbha by himself though possessed of
death-inflicting powers, Mars and other evil planets when invested with death
powers kill the native; the results of planetary combinations must thus be known
by learned pandits in astrology.
Explanation: Mars Moon, and Jupiter are evil. Mars is the lord of 3rd and 10th
houses of which the 3rd house is evil while the owning of the 10th by an evil
planet like Mars is productive of good. Jupiter is the lord of the 2nd and 11th
houses and both of them are bad houses, Moon is the lord of the 6th house and is
therefore evil. The combination of quadrants and trinea in one and the same
phnet produce good. Venus owns 4th and 9th houses and thus he is good.
But for Rajayogam, the combination of the lords of the 9th and 10th houses is
neceasary and therefore the author saya Mars and Venus, lords of the 10th and
9th respectively must join together to produce political success. 10th house is
the house of employment, political work, reputation, command and so on, and
therefore its lord must combine the lord of the 9th for producing Rajayogam.
Jupiter is the lord of the 2nd house and as such posseeees the power of killing
the native. He is, besides, also the lord of the 11th house. But the author say
he will not himself kill the native when possessed of death-inflicting powers.
Mars and other evil planets kill the person when they possess death inflicting
powers. Mars owns 3rd and 10th houses of which 3rd is bad whiie the lOth is
good. When good and evll balance each other, by a rule of astrology, evil
prevails. Moon is bad and he may kill the native.
Nothing is said of Sun and Saturn. Sun is the lord of the 7th house and as an
evil planet, he must produce good by owning a quadrant. But he owns the 7th
house which relates to death. He is not mentioned by the author in the list of
the good or in that of the bad. Why? I suppose he is neutral.
What about Saturn? He is the lord of the lst and 12th houses and as such owns
one good and one bad house. But there is a special evil attached to Saturn in
this Lagna. The owner of the birth is also the lord of the 12th and this keeps
him from doing any good to the native.
