Namaste! In the last episode I talked about importance of exalted and debilitated planets in predictions. Other than that, friendship and enmity of planets is also very important in predictive astrology. Planets like Sun, Moon etc. are neutral, friendly or inimical to other planets. Check out the table on blackboard to know friendship and enimity of each planet.
|Sun||Moon, Mars, Jupiter||Saturn, Venus||Mercury|
|Moon||Sun, Mercury||None||Rest of the planets|
|Mars||Sun, Moon, Jupiter||Mercury||Rest of the planets|
|Mercury||Sun, Venus||Moon||Venus, Saturn|
|Jupiter||Sun, Moon, Mars||Venus, Mercury||Saturn|
|Venus||Saturn, Mercury||Rest of the planets||Jupiter, Mars|
|Saturn||Mercury, Venus||Rest of the planets||Jupiter|
|Rahu, Ketu||Venus, Saturn||Sun, Moon, Mars||Jupiter, Mercury|
This table is very important and we should also try to memorize it. If this table seems too long, don’t worry. With the time, you will remember everything on your own. Grossly, we can divide planets in two categories that are friendly to each other:
Category 1: Sun, Moon, Mars, Jupiter
Category 2: Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Rahu, Ketu
It is an easy way to remember the table. However, it is not correct all the time. It would be better if you memorise the table.
What does being friend or enemy mean? If a planet is in its friend’s sign and with friendly planets, it will give positive results. Similarly, if a planet is in its enemy planet’s sign or posited with enemy planet, its positive effects will be reduced.
I hope you enjoyed watching this video. Hope to see you soon again. Namaste!
