Whether or not one believes in it, the position of planets in our astrology chart has a big role to play in our lives. Usually, a layman would not understand anything about the nature of planets or how they get well-being (or sometimes create ruckus) in our lives. However, fret not! We’re here to help you.
What are the Malefic Planets?
To make you understand the malefic nature of planets in astrology and how it affects our lives, we for you a quick overview of the quintessential malefic planets. Simply put, a malefic planet is one that is known to bring bad luck or misfortune to your life. This is especially true if you are born in its radius according to your astrology chart. On the other hand, there are benefic planets or the planets in your chart that bring you good luck and well-being.
The words benefic and malefic are both derived from Greek Mythology and simply mean ‘good-doer’ and ‘bad-doer’ respectively.
Malefic Planets- An Understanding
As per Indian astrology, Rahu and Ketu are always considered malefic planets for all ascendants. The nature of planets of this origin is always known to bring disruption or some sort of disturbance in your life, specifically if they are placed next to the other malefic planets.
Essentially, the Sun, Mars, and Saturn are always considered malefic planets. Having said that, it is not always true that they will bring you misfortune. Sometimes, depending upon their placement, the nature of planets in astrology can change drastically.
For instance, Mars, Saturn, and Jupiter can function as benefic (positive) planets for Aries sun sign while acting as deterrents for Geminis.
Consider this an overarching nature of planets for general sun or moon signs. The actual analysis of how malefic planets affect your life will solely depend on the time and the day of your birth among other things.
It’s tough to understand your birth chart but here’s a quick tip for you to know if the malefic planets in your life are actually disturbing or are they functioning as benefic planets. If either of these five planets occupies the position in your 6th, 8th or 12th house, you should know they’re true to their name of being malefic planets.
The magnitude of the effect, though, is still largely driven by the position and nature of planets other than these.
Another interesting example often seen in astrology charts is the intrinsic nature of the planet, Jupiter. While it’s usually expansive and known to bring abundance, under certain circumstances, it is known to bring an excess of everything, which loosely translates to indulgence- not good for one’s health or well-being.
So the next time you hear an astrologer tell you anything about the nature of planets in astrology and how they’re affecting your life, you can ask them the right kind of questions. Try to understand in-depth where the malefic planets are based and which combination from these is causing the problems or bringing you good luck.
