If a planet say Mars is highly delighted but not doing any planetary aspect to 7th cusp in rasi but manifesting 7th cusp in d7 (say d7 having 7th cusp in Aries with Mars in it) means Mars can produce a martial quality partner but won't be able to delight her path in life with his own great martial attitude. Is this understanding correct?
perhaps martial activities will not be as much a part of the path with the partner even if the partner has a predominance of martial aspects to them. Would be interesting to see if there are also incompatibility Lajittaadi Aavasthas like kshobhita, kshuditha, in particular with Venus involved.
If mars rules the D7 7th and its delighted, then yes, mars will give a delightful relationship. So take the ruler of things in teh vargas and see the lajjitaadi avasthas in the rasi.
If a planet is delighted and aspecting a cusp, the delight to the cups is the planets aspect multiped by its delight.
and yes, Yogesh, take the ruler of things in teh varga and see the lajjitaadi avasthas in the rasi. And as to the second question, I only use lajjitaadi avasthas in the rasi now. I look for rulerships in the vargas and take the lajjitaadi in the rasi.
In rasi as I do not take planetary aspects in vargas.
