House placements and yogas within orb
Hi Ernst and all!
The Sun is at 04:57 of Pieces and Mars is at 27:05 of Aquarius. They are supposed to be in neutral relationship (2\12). But according to Tajika Aspects Within Orb table, they are forming an inimical yoga within orb as if they were conjunct.
Is it beaucse they are so close in degrees? But then again, such proximity should affect their aspectual value and not the type of their relationship: F, E or N.
I see it again and again in different charts. Is there a special rule for cases such as this?
Hi Marina, yes. It is because they are within each other's orbs. Mars has an 8 degree org, and Sun a 15 degree orb. The 2 of them in your example, are about 8 degrees from forming a perfect conjunction. Conjunctions, Oppositions and Squares are considered inimical. In your case Sun moving faster and separating, doing an isharapha yoga so the aspect won't be very strong. The 2/12 neutral aspect would apply if Sun would be about 30 degrees away from Mars, as in @27 degrees of Pisces, or Mars would be in Aq. @5 degrees. Hope that helps.
this is a confusing point. The relationship is based on the sign position. Not the aspect orb. The question is, should we pay attention to an aspect within orb that has a neutral relationship as in this example? For yogas, I don't think we should. However, if we want to look at planets influencing each other then we calculate the tajika aspects out from 0-60 and sign position does not matter for that. In those calculations, some squares are very weak actually, but they still form full fledged yogas. So these are two different things, aspect value and Tajika yogas. The only time you really need the aspect value is for finding the year lord. Most of Tajika is the yogas, so ignore neutrals.
In that example if they are within orb the tajika aspects table will show them regardless of whether they are in yoga or not.
Again, the table does not show the nuetral, friend, etc. it just works with the degrees. the moon and saturn are within orb on a 150 degree aspect which is not considered in tajika.
saturn is an enemy to the moon, but if then moon is muntha lord or lagna lord, then that means that saturn will come into the life of the person based on what saturn rules. It wont be easy because its an opposition.
