Lajitaadi Avashtas Master's Course - Sun - Finding your Kingdom
nope combust planets are low in chestha bala, so a person does not USE them when they should. When we get into strenghts with avasthas you will see how a planet has 4 strengths, 4 things it offers, when its low in one of those things, it more readily gets starved on that level.

in answer to what direction the will should be applied, its to in the direction that the inner voice says yes to.
Would Saturn in the mix completely hide the inner voice, especially in terms of understanding the "grounded Sun" i.e. Sun as it wants to be in the world. or just reduce confidence because of fixation on the perceived flaw (like the nose/actress in the example you gave in the video)
No planet completely hides the inner voice. The planets make it harder for a person to be centered in the place where they can hear the inner voice. But its never actually hidden. One planet in bad shape does not make it harder than another planet in bad shape, so saturn does no worse and is no worse.
For myself, the inner voice is the first thought that comes in my mind. The best of it is when my heart sings with joy when that first thought comes in the mind.
A split second later, and all the avasthas start playing their tunes telling me reasons not to follow that first thought. Or the mind starts weaving stories about expectations and needs and desires.
The shift is so quick that one has to be on their toes to catch it, and then drop the stories and follow the inspiration to see where it leads. It might lead to a painful experience or it might lead to a joyful experience, but it always brings up something within that needs to be looked at.
I think being aware that whatever we expereince (for example, feeling of being pulled into the depression, or feeling not worthy, or the fear of not being able to get rid of a disease, or the lack of strength to do an exercise, or inability to communicate our boundary) is what we experience at this moment, but it doesn't mean that it will stay with us for the rest of our lives, and it doesn't mean at all that it will not go away or change even in the next 15 minutes, - we become free of bad habits, of the unconscious patterns.
And when we think: "i feel depressed at the moment and - oh no, help! that means i am gonna be depressed for the rest of my life and will never get rid of it!" - that's when a bad habit, an uncoscious pattern, is running our life.
to not allow that, we need to be aware of what we feel in the moment - and be aware that we can do something to change that feeling, to give ourselves what we need at any given moment, like doing something that makes us feel good.
i think is this can also be a path to freedom of bad habits.
