Strong in the East are Budh and Guru. Surya and Mangal are so in the South, while sani is the only Grah, that derives strength in the West. Candr and sukr are endowed with vigour, when in the North. Again, strong during night are Candr, Mangal and sani, while Budh is strong during day and night. The rest (i.e. Guru, Surya and sukr) are strong only in daytime. During the dark half malefics are strong. Benefics acquire strength in the bright half of the month. Malefics and benefics are, respectively, strong in Dakshinayan and Uttarayan.

The deepest exaltation degrees are, respectively, 10, 3, 28, 15, 5, 27 and 20 in those Rasis. And in the seventh Rasi from the said exaltation Rasi each Grah has its own debilitation. The same degrees of deep exaltation apply to deep fall. 51-54. Additional Dignities. In Simh the first 20 degrees are Surya’s Mooltrikon, while the rest is his own Bhava. After the first 3 degrees of exaltation portion in Vrishabh, for Candr, the rest is her Mooltrikon. Mangal has the first 12 degrees in Mesh, as Mooltrikon with the rest therein becoming simply his own Bhava. For Budh, in Kanya the first 15 degrees are exaltation zone, the next 5 degrees Mooltrikon and the last 10 degrees are own Bhava. The first one third of Dhanu is the Mooltrikon of Guru, while the remaining part thereof is his own Bhava. sukr divides Tula into two halves keeping the first, as Mooltrikon and the second, as own Bhava. sani’s arrangements are same in Kumbh, as Surya has in Simh. 55. Natural Relationships. Note the Rasis, which are the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 8th, 9th and 12th from the Mooltrikon of a Grah. The Grahas ruling such Rasis are its friends, apart from the Lord of its exaltation Rasi. Lords other than these are its enemies. If a Grah becomes its friend as well, as its enemy (on account of the said two computations), then it is neutral, or equal. 56. Temporary Relationships. The Grah, posited in the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 10th, 11th, or the 12th from another, becomes a mutual friend. There is enmity otherwise. (This applies to a given Janm Kundali)
