Saturn starving Sun - Master Course
I've heard different teachings about how strong, or not , a starvation or delight will be given if its Sleeping, DB , starved itself or whatever ...using other Avastas or Dignity , does that affect how strong effect will be felt?
I guess I am trying to look beyond techniques and understand the planets as a family unit and their effects upon each other.
I guess tracing the lords is one way to understand the interconnections and enrich what we understand from the avastha itself. Like what Ernst mentioned in his reply.. Ketu in Leo will be ruled by the Sun, so a Sun starved will add difficulties since that particular Ketu is ruled, and thus impacted, by the Sun. Since your Sun is in Gemini, how your Mercury is placed will likely also have some effect.. (though Ra/Ke are more impacted by the lords as they are astral.. so another thing is your Rahu lord is starved/agitated, thats perhaps more palpable)
Hi Meg, just focus on the lajjitaadi avastha. In most cases you do not need to know the extent of influence beyond the sign being a huge influence, the conjunction being the huge influence, and aspects being an influence as per the aspect value. There are subtle calculations to be made to determine exact influence but I dont do those with the other avasthas as I used to. I do it on 4 levels now and it just going to be too overwhelming to teach at this point until people know how to read the avasthas themselves.
saturn in leo would be in great enemy sign or in neutral sign depending on where the sun and saturn are in the rasi chart, so half the time its in bad dignity.
