Really enjoying the course and want to understand which aspects are considered for the latest Sun Saturn video. I don't have the software with points and the page where it is supposed to be doesn't load for me. So the question is which of the following aspects are considered there:

a) 0, 45, 90, 135, 180 degrees

b) 60 and 120 degrees

c) 30 and 150 degrees?

Thank you!

Hi, this should help (from the Characters Effects of the Graha manual): 

  • All planets aspect the 7th (180 degrees) from themselves with full strength.  

  • All planets aspect the 4th (90 degrees) and 8th (210 degrees) from themselves with 3/4 strength.  

  • All planets aspect the 5th (120 degrees) and 9th (240 degrees) from themselves with 1/2 strength.  

  • All planets aspect the 3rd (60 degrees) and 10th (270 degrees) from themselves with 1/4 strength.  

In addition Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn have special full strength aspects:  

  • Mars aspects the 4th (90 degrees) and 8th (210 degrees) from himself with full strength.  
  • Jupiter aspects the 5th (120 degrees) and 9th (240 degrees) from himself with full strength.  
  • Saturn aspects the 3rd (60 degrees) and 10th (270 degrees) from itself with full strength. 

Planets cause no aspects whatsoever from 300 - 360 degrees, from  00 - 30 degrees and at 150 degrees.

So Saturn casts a full aspect to the 3rd, 7th and 10th places from where it's located. Full strength is 60 virupas, that being said, the calculation for the exact aspectual value is a bit more elaborate than that. If you want to dive into it, it's explained in the Character effects of the grahas manual (and other manuals I believe), page 3

Thank you, Mona, that's very helpful! So (me coming from western astrology, trying to integrate both 😀 ) the what's considered easy aspects like trines and sextiles would still cause a bad sun saturn avashta?
