Hello friends how are you all? I hope you all will be fine there. Today we will discuss about the Combust Planets.
What happens to a planet when it becomes a Combust Planet ?
and what are the results of Combust Planets in horoscope ?
Friends, out of 9 planets located in our horoscope, 6 planets can be combust and the remaining 3 planets are never combust. Rahu and Ketu never combust because according to astrology, Rahu and Ketu are the nodes they can not be can not be combust like other planets. Sun is the main planet which causes combustion to other planets so it can not combust itself. Meaning the rest of the remaining six planets can be combust by Sun. and they are the moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn.
Any of these six planets, while approaching the Sun, are approached with the reach of the sun, because they lose their work capacity due to reaching the sun closer. But all these six planets have a limit to their own near the sun, which is different from all of them. When traveling in zodiac, a planet crosses that boundary only then it is considered to be combust. And this boundary is measured by the degrees of planets.
If the moon approaches the sun to reach 12 degrees in any of the zodiac sign, then it becomes combust. Now whether the moon and sun are in different house or signs, if the distance between them is lesser from 12 degrees then the moon will go combust. This rule will be determined on other planets also, but their limit will be different.
Mars will move at a distance of 17 degrees from the Sun it becomes combust. Mercury falls to 14 degrees, guru to 11 degrees, Venus to 10 degrees and Saturn falls at 16 degrees to become combust.
In all these planets, Venus is such a planet that can lies in the closest distance to the Sun. Now, if you think Mars is within 17 degrees of Sun and Venus is between 11 degrees distance from the Sun, then Mars is combust, but will Venus also be combust ?
No, because Venus is still 1 degree out of its combustion limits, even if it is between the Mars and the Sun. When observing the horoscope, you also need to take care of that unless a house is within the bounds of its boundaries, it will not be construed.
I hope you have understood the state of the planets, but if a planet is in the combust condition in the horoscope then how will it provide the Results ?
we will discuss all six planets results in combust condition in different houses of horoscope and also their general tendencies being lords of different houses. in our next part of combust planets. so be tuned.
