Combustion of planets with Degrees
In previous level, we have learnt what combustion is and now we will learn at what degrees, the planet will be considered to be combusted. Before that, I would like to let you know that planet get combusted at certain degrees only. It doesn’t mean planet gets combusted with the conjunction of planet Sun. It starts with certain degrees from the Sun and ends too with certain degrees after passing to the Sun. It is basically the closeness of planet within certain degrees of Sun. Let’s find below the degrees of every planet in below table where it feels combusted:
|Moon||Moon gets combusted within 12 degrees on either side of the Sun|
|Mercury||Mercury gets combusted within 14 degrees on either side of the Sun|
|Mercury ( R )||When Mercury becomes retrograde in motion, it gets combusted within 12 degrees|
|Venus||Venus gets combusted within 10 degrees on either side of the Sun|
|Venus ( R)||Like Mercury, when Venus becomes retrograde, it gets combusted within 8 degrees|
|Mars||Mars gets combusted within 17 degrees on either side of the Sun|
|Jupiter||Jupiter gets combusted within 11 degrees on either side of the Sun|
|Saturn||Saturn gets combusted within 15 degrees on either side of the Sun.|
Note: Rahu & Ketu don’t get combusted by Sun.
Celestial Cabinet of Planets
In general, as we already have heard the cabinet of Ministers in a country, in the same way, we will discuss about the Celestial Cabinet of Planets, so let’s find out below how it gets arranged in case of planets:
Sun: As Sun is the supreme planet so it is considered as the “King” of celestial cabinet. That’s is the reason it always shows the high & authoritative positions in the society
Moon: As Moon represents the Mind as discussed earlier, so it is very important planet in Astrology and considered to be “Queen” in Celestial Cabinet.
Mercury: It is joyful planet and revolves frequently around the Sun, so it has given the title of “Prince” in Celestial Cabinet.
Venus: As Venus shows the desires, love, & romance in Vedic Astrology, so it is given the title of “Princess” in Celestial Cabinet.
Mars: It is fiery and martial planet, so it is “Commander In Chief” or “Soldier” of celestial Cabinet.
Jupiter: It is soft and benefic planet and known for wisdom, so it is “King’s Minister” in Celestial Cabinet.
Saturn: It comes under malefic planet category as explained before but it likes to do hard work, so it works as a “Servant” of celestial cabinet and represents masses or public.
Note: Rahu & Ketu are the Shadowy planets and do not get role in Celestial Cabinet.
