Steve will instruct how to identify the various auspicious and inauspicious planets for each of the twelve rising signs, based on the rules found in Jyotish classical texts. (For instance, Jupiter is considered to be less benevolent for Taurus rising, while Mars becomes a very positive planet for Cancer and Leo ascendants. ) Determining strength or weakness in this way, along with assessing a planet’s power by sign placement and aspects, is necessary to correctly judge a planet’s potential to deliver results on the portfolio of things that it rules and the houses that it rules as well, for both natal and mundane maps. Many example charts will be used to clearly illustrate these points.
