Exalted planets means when a planet is placed in a particular moon sign where it feels happy. Also people call them Ucch ka grah. Same way, Debilitated planets means the planets which do not feel happy in a particular moon sign. These are also known as neech ke grah. Now there are 2 very important things before we jump to any conclusions regarding results of these planets being so.

Firstly, Planet exalted in one moon sign can be debilitated in another moon sign. Secondly, the results of both exalted planets and debilitated planets depend on the actual strength it gets from its Shadbala. While the first part is a matter of common knowledge in Astrology, the second part to actually access the strength of planets is somewhat different. And I bet that most of the astrologers either knowingly overlook it or worse do not know anything about it. Notwithstanding, most of the lot certainly ignore this vital aspect to gauge the strength of the planet as per Indian Vedic Astrology. My this blog is to enlighten as to how to access the actual degree of exaltation or debilitation of any planet. Therefore , one should never feel blessed seeing exalted planets in horoscope nor feel dejected seeing debiliated planets in horoscope. Based on the actual strength these planets can give reverse results also.

Exalted or debilitated planets – How to access its strength?

An orbiting planet becomes auspicious or inauspicious due to three reasons. First of all  it’s positioning in a sign. Second is the aspects it gets or gives. And finally is its conjunction with other planets. This auspiciousness of the planet is not necessarily due to these three factors, as people widely understand. But it depends on Shadbala (Strength gained from six sources).

Shadbala of Exalted planets and debilitated planets

As per Maharishi Parashara, there are six sources of the Shadbala in Indian Vedic Astrology as:

I will explain a little brief about these six sources to assess the strength of Exalted planets and debilitated planets as below.

  • Sthan Bal (Place strength)
  • Digbala
  • Kaal Bal
  • Chestha Bal
  • Naisargik Bal
  • Dristhi Bal

SthanBal of exalted planets & debilitated planets

The planet gets strength when it is in friend’s house, own house or exalted / Moon Tricona house. We can not assess the actual strength without
thoroughly evaluating following sub-heads under this head are.

1. Uccha Bal: The Uchha Bal is deduced by computing the:

  • NaisargikMaitri Bal
  • The TatkalikGrahMaitri Bal
  • The PanchdhaMaitri Bal
  • Saptvargaz Bal
  • OjUgam Bal
  • Kendra Bal
  • Dreshkan Bal.

Digbal in exalted & debilitated planets

The strength a planet gets due to its directional positioning i.e East, West, North or South. Position of Mercury & Jupiter  in East ( Lagna) makes them  Digbali. Moon & Venus are Digbali in 4th House. Saturn is Digbali in the West of in the 7th house. Similarly Sun & Mars in 10th House are Digbali.

KaalBal in exalted planets & debilitated planets.

KaalBal depends upon the degrees at which planet progresses in a sign. We commute this from the nine factors. These nine factors are:

  • Natonnat Bal or the Diva Ratri Bal
  • Paksha Bal
  • Tribhaag Bal
  • Abad Bal
  • Maas Bal
  • Vaar Bal
  • Hora Bal
  • Ayan Bal
  • Yudh Bal

Chestha Bal of exalted planets & debilitated planets

Chestha bal is the strength gained by a planet by virtue of getting retrogate. Therefore, Sun & Moon never get the Chestha Bal.

Naisargik Bal of exalted planets & debilitated planets

Naisargik Bal is the strength that the planets gets from its nature.

Drishti Bal in exalted planets & debilitated planets

The strength gained by a planet by getting an aspect from the intrinsically beneficial planets is the Drishti Bal.

My final advise on exalted planets, debilitated planets

Through this write-up, I am not trying to teach how the different Balas are calculated. But my contention is to make everyone understand that a planet by virtue of its Stan Bal may look like giving good results. It may be exalted or be in its sign, but it can be that the other Balas may not be giving it their part. As a result,  the exalted planets even after being exalted may not be beneficial. And similarly, a debilitated planets may look weak but owing to the blessing of other Balas may prove otherwise. These are the principles of Indian Vedic Astrology and I am sure, any astrologer can deny or defy it.

So, before feeling excited seeing exalted planets or dejected seeing debilitated planets, one should always deduce the Shadbala of the planet. And this we can evaluate easily through any conventional software. Every horoscope making software of Indian Vedic Astrology has the feature to evaluate the Shadbala of the planet.

Negative planets can also give positive results.

Same way execellent Yogas may not always blossom .

The Horoscope once allotted to us, cannot be changed. Not even the creator of it Lord Brahma can change it. Then how can astrology or astrologers help us? Let’s understand that Horoscope is a chart which is tabulated based on our Past Life Karmas. The karmas of past have gone past and are fixed, same way horoscope is fixed & none can be changed.
However with changing Planetary Transit and Dasha, we have flexibility in our present life karmas to impact the results of what is allotted to us in Horoscope. All planets (like Earth, Sun, Moon etc) keep moving which is called planetary transit. Dasha also keep changing. That is where a right astrological guidance by a competent astrologer plays the role. My practical experience of 20 Years with a PhD IN Astrology makes me write very categorically that each horoscope has both negative and positive planetary positions but actual results depend on how we drive them through our karmas of present life. Best of positive Yogas in Horoscope may not ignite for its expected positive results. Same way most negative Doshas in Horoscope can give best positive results. Important is Karma & not the so called astrology rituals. You cannot appease the God with rituals.
Indian Vedic astrology means co-relating your horoscope with your own karmas of past life, identifying flawed and good of them. Then guiding the person how to mould karmas in present life to win over impact of flawed ones.
Accurate birth time is the soul of Indian Vedic Astrology; any doubts pls go for birth time synchronization then only go for any astrological predictions. Career astrology, business astrology, marriage astrology, good progeny, negative doshas in horoscope, positive yogas in horoscope are all embedded in Vedic Astrology depending on astrologer what way want to deal with it.
