Today I'll talk about benefic and malefic planets. In Sanskrit, benefic is called shubha and malefic is called paap. Benefic is the planet that give good results and malefic is the one that gives bad results. Earlier I talked about nine planets, out of that few are classified as benefics and others are classified as malefic.

Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter are benefic planets
Sun, Mars, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu are malefic planets

Moon and Mercury are not always benefic. Moon close to full moon day is considered benefic whereas moon close to no-moon day is considered malefic. Same way, Mercury is considered benefic when situated with benefic planets and malefic when situated with malefic planets. Rahu and Ketu are natural malefics but under the influence of benefics, they also behave as benefics.

If we have to learn predictions, knowledge of benefic and malefic planet is very important. Nature outlined earlier is the basic nature of planet but it doesn't mean that benefic will always give good results and malefic will always give bad results. Good or bad results also depend upon various other factors like ownership, placement in sign and house, aspects etc. We will talk about that in detail later.

This was all for part I. Stay tuned to AstroSage.com for the next part. Till then, have a great time.
