How Mars gets exalted at enemy Saturn's house Capricorn?

Post by DhoomDhoom » 04 Apr 2014

Under normal circumstances a planet gets exalted in its great friend's house and gets debilitated in its greatest enemy's house. For example, Moon and Mars are not regarded as good friends. Quite naturally Moon gets debilitated in Mars' house Scorpio and Mars gets debilitated in Moon's house Cancer. Likewise Sun and Mars being great friends, Sun gets exalted at Mar's house Aries.

But I am confused with the exaltation of Mars. Mars gets exalted at Capricorn ruled by Saturn. Mars and Saturn aren't regarded as good friends at all. Infact Saturn gets debilitated at Mars' house Aries. Now by which logic can Mars gets exalted at its enemy Saturn's house Capricorn? Can anyone explain?

Dear reader
It is not correct to say that a planet gets exalted in friendly sign and similarly gets debilitated in inimical sign .Just have a look - Venus gets exalted in Pisces , the sign of Jupiter, which though a benefic but is not friendly with Venus. More over Mercury ,though a friend of Venus ,but gets debilitated in in that very sign in which Venus gets exalted . Besides that Venus itself gets debilitated in Virgo , a sign of Mercury. Between Mars 7 Moon ,both get debilitated in each others signs .
So the exaltation and debilitation are not based on friendship or enemity . ,

Hi, here is another version

The zodiac is the planetary cabinet.
The first house or sign should be occupied by protocol by the King as the Ist citizen. Sun is the king of planetary cabinet. Hence he should be exalted on his thrown in the Ist sign Aries. A king enjoys power and position only when attended by the commander in chief Mars and the servant Saturn. Aries is the sign owned by Mars, the commander in chief of the planetary cabinet and Saturn the servant is debilitated (humbled) in Aries due to the authority of the King and the commander in chief. The King is attended on either side (Pisces and Taurus by Venus the courtesan and the Queen Moon).
The place next to the King shall go only to the Queen. Hence Moon is exalted in Taurus. Sun owns Leo and Moon owns Cancer and get exalted in Aries and Taurus respectively. Next to Queen no one can sit. Hence Gemini has neither exaltation or debilitation of any planet in it. Cancer is owned by the Queen (Queen's place) Moon. Jupiter is the preceptor and further has a respectable place in the Queen's palace when he visits Cancer. Hence Jupiter is exalted in Cancer. Mythologically Moon (as male disciple of Jupiter) has an episode with Tara, the wife of Jupiter, which culminated in the birth of a child Budha. Mars the commander in chief visits the Queen's palace to carry out the commands or run errands of the Queen. Hence he is debilitated in Cancer. In the King's palace of Leo no planet can be exalted. Hence free from exaltation or debilitation. Virgo is owned by Mercury. Mercury is the finance minister in the planetary cabinet hence exalted in Virgo. Venus the courtesan is debilitated in the house of the finance minister, personally visiting for financial aid. Libra is owned by courtesan (damsel). When the king visits the court damsel, naturally he is accompanied by the servant Saturn. In the house of a damsel the king looses his authority. Hence is debilitated in Libra. The servant Saturn is the master of the situation (arranging meeting of Damsel Venus and King Sun) and is exalted. Scorpio is owned by Mars. When Moon the Queen visits the quarters of subordinate commander in chief, she is humbled. Hence is debilitated in Scorpio. In the mansion of the Guru Jupiter no planet is exalted or debilitated. Capricorn is the quarters of the servant and soldier Saturn. Mars visits the barracks of soldier. He the commander in chief visits with authority. Hence is exalted. Jupiter the preceptor and prime minister by visiting the quarters of a servant looses his dignity and status.
Hence Jupiter is debilitated in the house of Saturn - Capricorn Aquarius also is owned by Saturn. There is no debility or exaltation of planets in it. Pisces is owned by Jupiter. Venus, the damsel, being in the house of respected Jupiter in the proximity of the king In Pisces naturally has power hence is exalted. Finance Minister, and in the proximity of the king is subdued of his authority and hence is debilitated in Pisces.
This is one line of explanation of exaltation and debilitation of planets on the basis of planet politics.

Best Regards
