Pārāshari Planetary Aspects (Graha Drishti)

All physical planets aspect 7th sign from themselves.

Mars additionally aspect 4th and 8th signs from itself.

Jupiter additionally aspect 5th and 9th signs from itself.

Saturn additionally aspect 3rd and 10th signs from itself.

Rāhu and Ketu, being non-physical planets, cast no aspect.


Unlike in Western Astrology where aspects are considered degree to degree, in Indian Astrology aspects are considered sign to sign. If Jupiter is at 29° Pisces and Saturn is at 1° Aries, they are not considered to be conjunct or influencing each other. But if in the same scenario, Mercury is at 29° Aries, Saturn and Mercury are considered to be conjunct and influencing one another. This proposition needs to be verified.


Generally, the strength of aspect for a planet is:

1st from itself — 100% = 60 Virupas

2nd from itself — Negligible

3rd from itself — 25% = 15 Virupas

4th from itself — 75% = 45 Virupas

5th from itself — 50% = 30 Virupas

6th from itself — Negligible

7th from itself — 100% = 60 Virupas

8th from itself — 75% = 45 Virupas

9th from itself — 50% = 30 Virupas

10th from itself — 25% = 15 Virupas

11th from itself — Negligible

12th from itself — Negligible


Note that Mars casts extra 25% aspect to 4th and 8th signs each from itself

whereas Jupiter (next farthest planet) casts extra 50% aspect to 5th and 9th signs each from itself

while Saturn (next farthest planet) casts extra 75% aspect to 3rd and 10th signs each from itself.


Speculation:

  i. If Mars casts extra aspect to 4th and 8th, its aspect on other houses (except 1st and 7th) should diminish or remain same??

  ii. If Jupiter casts extra aspect to 5th and 9th, its aspect on other houses (except 1st and 7th) should diminish or remain same??

  iii. If Saturn casts extra aspect to 3rd and 10th, its aspect on other houses (except 1st and 7th) should diminish or remain same??

  iv. It seems from this scheme that Uranus aspects additionally 2nd and 11th signs from itself

  while Neptune aspects additionally 6th and 12th signs from itself (not applied or verified yet)
