please can someone advise:
in the course of building blocks, under the topic of planetary aspects, ernst says we should use the planetary aspects in the rasi chart to analyze their influences in different vargas. in the audio "grahas sutras" class no 3 he analyses complexion by using planetary aspects, and he uses the rasi and d-30 charts to determine complexion of a person. when he analyses the d-30 chart. he uses aspects of planet to the lagna and lagna lord as they presented in the d-30, and not as the astronomically aspects of the planets as drawn from the rasi chart.
please help me in understanding the reason for that, could it be that the audios are old and since then there has been change in his teaching of the concept of planetary aspects in the vargas?
I no longer use planetary aspects in the varga charts.
yes, and you can use rasi aspects in the D30
i have sent you also this question and wasnt sure if you saw it as you didnt reply, would you mind giving your view on that please?
, regarding a planet dignity in the vargas, how does one judge an exalted moon or debilitated moon in the vargas ,as well as mercury exaltation and debilitation in the vargas, with regards to their degrees in the vargas? do we look at the degrees of those planets as indicated by the varga? for example ,if moon in any varga, is placed in taurus do we determine his exaltation by his degrees in the varga? meaning, exa when 0-3 degrees not exalted 3-30 (if 3-30 will his dignity in the varga defined by temporary friendship of venus to moon in the rasi plus natural friendship of venus to moon(which is neutral) in the varga?)
also determining moolatricona and own rasi in the vargas and the rasi as part of calculating dignity of a planet .
1. in the rasi chart: if a planet has limiting degrees to his moolatricona and own rasi definition and he falls out of those degrees how do you determine his dignity ?(for example , mercury is:
moolatricona in 15 – 20 Virgo
and own rasi in 20 – 30 Virgo, and Gemini
how do you determine mercury dignity if he is in 0-10 degrees of virgo or alternatively if he is 0-10 Gemini?
2. in the vargas: do yo conceder the degrees of the planet as it is in the varga, with regards to the same question as mentioned in part 1. above?
Yes, use the degress in the vargas as well.
