Shadbala – State Related to Alertness in Vedic Astrology

We have 3 alertness-related states of planets:

  1. A planet in its exaltation rasi or an own rasi is said to be in “Jaagrita ” avastha (awake). It gives full results.
  2. A planet in a rasi owned by a neutral or friendly planet is said to be in “Swapna ” avastha (dreaming). It gives medium results.
  3. A planet in its debilitation rasi or a rasi owned by an enemy is said to be in “Sushupta ” avastha (asleep). The results it gives are negligible.

You may refer previous chapter on Exaltation, Debilitation etc. of planet to get more information.

Note: According to the Jataka Parijata, the above three conditions are based on the location of various planets in the Navamsha chart and not in the Rashi chart. This concept appears more appropriate.
