Hi Mandira,
Are you giving the degrees and minutes here or the sign number and degrees? Generally a planet will get combust within about 10 degrees of the Sun. Sepcifically Mercury 14 deg, Venus 10 deg, Mars 17 deg, Jup 11 deg, and Saturn 15 deg. Combustion only harms the outer indications not the inner indications of the planet and can be modified by other factors like planetary aspects. Vaughn Paul

Hi Vaughn Paul,

With reference to your previous post, you mentioned the following statement:
"Combustion only harms the outer indications not the inner indications of the planet and can be modified by other factors like planetary aspects. "

If you don't mind, can you further explain maybe with an example on how a combust planet's physial significance is modified due to aspects from other planets.

Thanks for the help!

Hi mcsun,
In Oprah Winfrey's chart posted last month in the daily articles http://www.lightonvedicastrology.com/dailyjyotish-030606.htm you can see that Venus is combust, yet she won a beauty contest at age 18. This is due to other favorable aspects like from Jupiter, Mercury and in an exchange with exalted Saturn. Vaughn Paul

I was reading the the following article http://srath.com/lectures/parakramarajayoga.htm which has a paragraph about combustion. It states that venus is only combust when in retrogade motion. I've not come across this before, can someone please confirm/deny this.

Mercury has the highest resistance to combustion since it is always close to the Sun and never beyond 28 degrees from the Sun. Saturn has the least resistance to combustion, as it is the farthest away from the Sun in Vedic Astrology terms.

Anyway, aspects of Rahu to the combust planet nullify the combustion as Rahu sheds its darkness over the combustion. In such a case, neither will Rahu afflict the planet and nor will the combustion be hardcore.

In Oprah's chart, Venus is in deep combustion. As a result, she never really had a fruitful married life. In fact, that's the reason why she never tied the knot. Furthermore, the combustion is taking place in the 6th house, which further devastated her married life. Jupiter's aspect on the 4 planets in the 6th house and Rahu-Ketu's influence minimized the combustion by a lot.

Her highly favorable 4th house Mars, which is creating a Raj Yog, bought her, one-way ticket to fame. Mars is also in connection with Jupiter, which sealed her fate. Her 4th house Moon will also give good results since it is under the influence of Jupiter, and 4th house is the best placement for the Moon. These factors paved the way for her reality shows, and shows that talk about deeper things in life. Moon's influence there is also one of the reasons why she chose feminine topics. Mars in Scorpio sealed that as well....

Hello,

In my 11th house (Capricorn), I have Sun conjunct with Venus (lord of 3rd and 8th house) and Rahu aspect my 11th house from 7th house, does it tell that Venus is not in combustion?

Please help me clarifying this.

Thank you,
Regards,

Interesting discussion here... What is the effect of combustion if Sun is debiliated? Is there any special significance if the combustion happens in the lagna?

Namaste Vaughnji and Others,

Regarding combustion, I read something in astrojyoti. It says,

"It is normally agreed that the planetary combustion effects are effective when they are in the same nakshatra pada with the sun. After that the effects are not severe."

Now, what I want to ask you all is—is this true?

Would it mean that—say, if Sun is the 3rd pada of Uttarphalguni nakshatra, and say Venus is in the 4th Pada of Uttarphalguni Nakshatra, the effects of combustion will not be that severe?

ABOUT COMBUSTION

Postby ROHIT » Mon May 04, 2009 6:32 pm

MY DOB IS 4/10/1981 TIME: 23.04, PLACE::MUMBAI

IN MY CHART: Gemini Ascendant 3rd lord Sun is in 4th house (virgo) with Jupiter & Saturn. Here, my jupiter has Kendradhipati Dosh. Saturn & jupiter both are combust. but ketu has 5th aspect on them from 8th house capricorn. Does this save Jupiter & Saturn From Combustion or only Rahu has such power to shed.Curently my sun dasha is going. Please Comment?

Adding to the 3 year old posts above regarding Oprah's chart:

As per Systems Approach (SA) in Vedic Astrology (developed by VK Choudhry):-
When the Sun is a functional benefic planet its conjunction with other well-placed functional benefic planets is good and gives exponential growth for the significations of the planets in close conjunction with the Sun. The combust planets suffer under the transit malefic influences.
When the Sun is a functional malefic planet or a functional malefic planet or planets are closely and mutually influencing the Sun, the significations of all the planets involved suffer in their sub-period as also during transit impacts.

In Oprah's chart, as per SA, both Sun and Venus are benefics and close conjunction of Sun to Venus (combustion) has given exponential growth for the significations of Venus (career in a creative field). Also, as Vaughn Paul has already mentioned above, other favorable aspects like from Jupiter, Mercury and in an exchange with exalted Saturn have added to the positive result.

4 combust planets

Postby amitns » Thu Nov 05, 2009 5:32 pm

Hi

I have read several threads on combustion but that has only increased my confusion! My data is as follows
DoB XXXX, Time 15:12 hrs, Mumbai, Kumbh lagna, makar rashi. 5 planets are present in 9th house. Sun is debilitated in Libra, and Venus, mars, mercury(r) and Uranus are combust in 9th.
Is this combustion bad for venus and mars? what are the ill effects?
Are the benefits of multrikona venus lost due to combustion. also i read that venus in libra causes the neechbhanga yoga. Is it also lost due to combustion?
amit

Hi amitns,

I am a learner. I found your chart very interesting, perhaps more so cause my son has same lagna and same saturn and moon placement.

You have the most beautiful vargottam Jupiter, the best benefic of all planets placed in its best possible house, where it not only gets digbala, forms multiple dhana yoga but also aspects the all important 5th, 7th and 9th house and consequently 5 other planets. You are quite lucky to have its mahadasha at the most important time of your life.

I am not much of an expert to comment on the effect of combustion on the 3 planets. But still am thinking, its only mercury which is again combust in navamsa while venus and mars are doing fine. So they may not suffer much from combustion. In fact this combination of planets is giving some wonderful rajayogas involving the all important house lords in a very auspicious 9th house. Sun indeed gets neechbhanga from Venus.

If you can please share some bits on some important events in your life like about your education(engineering?), marriage(love?) et al, it may help learners like me to understand things better.

Thanks and regards

I am not sure if a planet can be combust in navamsa or any divisional chart. Combustion is a physical phenomenon.

Combustion is a physical phenomenon.
Sun being exalted or debilitated does not have any impact on combustion phenomenon as such.
Combust planets are 'dagdha' planets... means burned...mood is 'Kopit' (angry)
A neecha Sun may produce some of its ill effects due to its weak position.
A weak Sun does not mean that combustion will will be compensated.
Weak Sun may add own twist to combustion as it may become more malefic..and any planet association with malefic Sun may produce bad results.

Shukra being combust does not neccesarily mean bad marriage...
There are other factors like aspects, ownership that a combust planet may have with Sun to produce some good yoga.
Also what you have in 7th house, how is your 7th lord in navamsa along with Ve. Your UL etc....
Need to take individual strengths and weakness and then see impact...on the overall aspect of life.
In short-- Sytems approach posted above.

"
As per Systems Approach (SA) in Vedic Astrology (developed by VK Choudhry):-
When the Sun is a functional benefic planet its conjunction with other well-placed functional benefic planets is good and gives exponential growth for the significations of the planets in close conjunction with the Sun. The combust planets suffer under the transit malefic influences.
When the Sun is a functional malefic planet or a functional malefic planet or planets are closely and mutually influencing the Sun, the significations of all the planets involved suffer in their sub-period as also during transit impacts.

"
This is very true. Combust plantes do produce bad effects no matter what. Other plantes may provide saving grace but cannot reverse combustion.

hi,

I'd like to add something to this post.What would be the results of 3 combust planets namely jupiter, venus and mercury being in the 10th house along with the moon and all 4 of em are being aspected by mars which is in its own house i.e the 7th house (scorpio) while mars also has saturn along in the 7th house in taurus lagna.

Also the sun is in the 9th house (capricorn).The 9th house is ruled by saturn and saturn being in the 7th also aspects the Sun.
m also posting the chart below for your kind perusal.
