Functional Benefic and Malefic

Functional Benefic and Malefic

The first and most important step in astrology is to know the position of planets for each ascendant, that is, to decide the practical position of planets for each ascendant, beneficent and maleficent.

And this guide is going to help you do that, and once you master it, I think it’s going to be easy for you to gage the impact of the planets on each ascendant.Planets function on humans with two forms of definitions one is permanent and is common to all as Venus means comfort, enjoyment, marriage and is uniformly applicable to each of us.

Therefore the planets do have changed definitions, which they acquire by virtue of their lordship of houses which vary from descending to descending.

For example, because of its lordship over malefic houses 3rd & 8th for Pisces ascendant, Venus gives bad results during its time.Here, while Venus is a normal beneficent, it will behave as a negative planet for the ascending Pisces and disrupt the sense of the house where it sits or looks.

Such definitions of the planets are fluid and change from ascendant to ascendant due to their lordship over the buildings.

Planets still keep their static meaning with them, no matter which houses they control in your horoscope.We also bear negative or positive intrinsic attributes together with dynamics.

The Lord of the Ascendant is often considered to be the most practical beneficent world, even if the other sign of the Ascendant is put in the 6th or 8th house, as in the case of Aries, Scorpio, Taurus and Libra Ascendants. The Aries and Libra ascendants have their Moontrikon sign in the first house of the chart. As such, Mars and Venus should be considered more auspicious for these ascendants.
