aspects of the planets
In all astrological systems, both Eastern and Western, the predictions are based on the aspects that connect the planets in the horoscope under study. According to the theory of aspects, each planet being in a particular place of the zodiac has an influence on a number of other points of the zodiacal circle, separated from her defined angular distances. In Vedic astrology, the aspects are called dismi "vision" or "sight". This term reflected the idea of the plan tah how about some reasonable forces that "look" on each other and adapt to each other.
Imagine the zodiac as a circle, and the position of the planets as points on this circle. Connect these points with radii from the center of the circle and you will see that between any two planets form an angle of specific size. The magnitude of this angle can be measured in degrees. Certain angular distances between planets (e.g. 90, 120 or 180) are important aspects that influence and power, which are interpreted in various astrological systems differently.
In Western astrology when determining the aspects of the distance between planetami is customary to calculate with great accuracy at least to one degree. Highlights major aspects of operating most strongly, such as quadrature (90) or trine (120). Aspect is considered significant only in the case when the distance between the planets is not beyond the so-called Orbis maximum allowable deviation from the exact value of the aspect. Western astrologers ascribe to different aspects of different nature. Regardless of the planets forming the aspect, some aspects are considered unfavorable, problematic (e.g., quadrature), and other favorable "light" (for example, Trin).
Vedic astrologers take a different approach, and those who are accustomed to the Western system, may not master it immediately. First of all, in vedicheskoy system aspects are determined on the basis of careful angular distances between planets, and depending on the number of characters separating the planet from each other. So, in order to form an opposition (180) one of the main aspects in Vedic astrology is enough to planets were opposite each other signs, and their exact position in degrees does not matter. In other words, the aspects formed between planets, and between the zodiacal signs in which they are placed, and between all the content of these signs.
For example, Jupiter in Aries forms an opposition to the whole sign of Libra, the entire house falls in the sign of Libra, all the planets located in that sign. Even if Jupiter is 50 Aries, and Saturn in 250 Scales in Vedic astrology they will still be in opposition to each other (although by the standards of Western astrology this aspect is too broad; it differs from the exact opposition by as much as 20).
However, in Vedic astrology the coordinates of the planets play a role. It is believed that the closer the aspect is to exact, the stronger it is. Sufficiently precise aspects can be considered and out of touch with the characters. If, for example, Jupiter is located in 10th of Aries, and Saturn at 29 Virgo, the signs those planets are in opposition to each other, however, the angular distance between the planets is 178, that is approaching an exact opposition. Some Vedic astrologers take into account such aspects, especially in the analysis of the bhava-chakra (map of houses).
Imagine that every sign is a room, and the planet - lamps in those rooms. In whatever point of the ceiling or hanging lamp, the light from it spreads over the whole room. The first and last degrees of each sign can be likened to the doors. Planets located at such points of intersection, and can affect both signs, however, outside the narrow zone "doors" and their influence is quite weak.
The determination of the aspects between the signs requires neither tedious calculations nor even knowledge of the exact coordinates of the planets. They do not need to count and keep in a separate table. The Vedic horoscopes are not attached aspektai, usually accompanied by the horoscope, built on the Western system. And since the aspects in Vedic astrology are counted from sign to sign, then the total number of possible aspects is significantly smaller than in Western astrology.
In the Vedic system various aspects are not attributed to particular positive or negative qualities. Aspects differ here only by the force as major and minor. Every aspect is a measure of the relationship between the planets. But the nature of this relationship depends on the type of aspect and the nature of the planets themselves. Opposition and quadrature in Vedic astrology are not considered to be clearly negative or problematic aspects, and Trina is obviously favorable. All depends on the quality of the planets forming the aspect. The opposition to the badly placed Sun in Libra (sign of fall) can be very heavy. However, if the Sun is good for example, acalcium in Aries, the same opposition can be quite beneficial. The square between Mars in Aries (resident) and Jupiter in Cancer (exaltation) can also manifest itself favorably, as both planets are placed well.
To determine the quality aspect, you need to take into account all possible information about the qualities of its constituent planets. Every aspect from the great pest of Saturn is often negative than favorable. On the contrary, any aspect of the great benefactor Jupiter will likely be beneficial. But the more we study the natural status of the planet and its quality management system houses, the more accurate estimate can be given aspects. Aspects of each planet to reflect its nature and its manifestations in various fields of life.
In Vedic astrology it is believed that some aspects of the full inherent only in certain planets. The General scheme of the aspect effects is the same for all planets, but some planets is attributed to a monopoly on some specific aspects which other planets appear much weaker.
Trina aspects of size 120 are specific "full" aspects of Jupiter. Trina's other planets are regarded as weak, minor aspects. And quadrature aspects of value in a full 90 appear only Mars (from the planets placed in front of him in the course of the characters) and Saturn (the planets that are located behind it). Perhaps herein lies the reason why in Western astrology, trine was considered a favorable aspect, and squaring problem: after all, Trina's contact with the beneficial Jupiter and quadrature with snotvornyi Mars and Saturn. In Vedic astrology it is believed that the influence of the planet in aspect only applies forward in the direction of the Zodiac signs (whereas in the Western system, aspect is usually seen as a mutual influence). So, if Saturn is in 3 Gemini, and Mars in 3 of the Pisces, forms a Saturn Mars aspect 270 (aspect tenth house), and Mars to Saturn in the 90 aspect (the aspect fourth house).
In Western astrology the aspects are treated as relationships between the planets. In the Vedic system, the planet aspectrum not only another planet, but the house (even if it has no planets), otstojashchie from it to a distance dimension, but rather a sign located on the cusp of this house. Depending on the nature of the planet aspectlisa the things of the home can both improve and deteriorate.
The main rule in accordance with which the Vedic astrologer makes a judgment on a particular issue, is the following: first, the question is studied in connection with the house, the sphere of influence which it belongs, then, in connection with the ruler of the house, and then in connection with signification home. By considering not only houses from the ascendant, but from the moon. And for the final answer to the question takes into account aspects of all the mentioned elements of the horoscope.
For example, if we are interested in the topic of spirituality or religion, we must study the effects that affect the ninth house and its ruler, Jupiter the ninth house significator. Then the same analysis should hold in the system of houses from the moon. In this study we have to consider not only the aspects between planets, but a whole network aspect of the relationships between all factors maps related to the question that interests us. Sometimes in Vedic astrology, aspects to the home are even more important than the aspects between the planets.
From the point of view of Western astrology, the aspects, taken in the Vedic system, may seem too General and vague. May be that a few major aspects between the signs does not allow to create such a detailed picture of how various aspects calculated by degree. The Western astrologer might wonder how his colleague working in vedicheskoy system, it is possible to make accurate judgment and make accurate predictions with such a limited set of aspects. However, you should remember that in Vedic astrology also considers the aspects in a series of maps of harmonics. Through this it is possible to track much more subtle relationships and to take into account the exact degree of distance between planets.
In addition, the relationship between planets in the Vedic astrology explores via the extensive system of criteria and aspect of communication is only part of the system. In addition to aspects takes into account the friendship and enmity between planets, and a variety of yoga.Major aspects of the planets
|The Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus||7th sign|
|Mars||The 4th, 7th and 8th signs|
|Jupiter||5th, 7th and 9th signs|
|Saturn||3rd, 7th and 10th signs|
The basic rule is that every planet aspectrum the seventh sign counting from the sign in which it is located. In Western astrology this aspect is the opposition (180).
In addition, the outer planets Mars, Jupiter and Saturn - have a special, inherent aspects. Mars aspectrum not only the seventh sign, but also the fourth and eighth. Aspect to the fourth sign is similar to the accepted Western system aspect of the folding (applicative) quadrature (90). Aspect to the eighth sign is similar to Quinconces (150), pending, however, against the direction of signs (that is, the go marks the distance between Mars and the sign espectively here is 210).
Jupiter, except the seventh sign, aspectrum the fifth and ninth. These aspects are similar to trinami Western astrology, pending back and forth from Jupiter. Saturn aspectrum not only the seventh, but the third and tenth signs. His influence on the third mark like sekstilâ (60) Western astrology, but defer only forward, on a course of signs. The aspect of Saturn to the tenth sign is squaring propagating backwards, against the direction of signs (that is, the go marks the distance between Saturn and the sign is aspectrum 270).
All these aspects belong to the category of major, or "full" aspects. Other aspects that do not have full power, classified as "weak" or minor.
Rahu and Ketu usually do not have special aspects, but some Vedic astrologers, including John. N. Bhasin, ascribe to them the same aspects to Jupiter, that is, the influence on the fifth and ninth signs. However, the axis of Rahu Ketu itself is always important. Any planet which is in connection with one of the lunar nodes is automatically in opposition to another.--
