People with weak planets face bigger challenges in Life

As per Indian Vedic Astrology, there are 27 constellations (Nakshatras), twelve houses and nine planets. When a person is born the snapshot of the sky (the position of the planets in the sky) decides a person’s life. If the planets position is good, that if the planets have full strength and it is not debilitated (fallen) or rendered weak, then a person tends to live generally a good life mostly with ease. Exalted (uchha) planets bless the native with great benefic results.  On the other hand, if the planets lack power or are debilitated, there are challenges in life. If such planets periods or sub-periods are operating, the challenges are bigger.

Vedic Astrology has Vimshottari dasha system which is known to be the most accurate method for predictions. This system is divided into 120 years where the Mahadasha period of Venus is the longest i.e. 20 years while Sun’s period is the shortest i.e. 6 years. But as it is apparent not all dasha periods necessarily come in one’s life. Out of the nine planets (in Vedic Astrology)-  Sun, Moon, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Mars, Rahu and Ketu, the slowest moving planets are Saturn and Jupiter. Jupiter stays in one rashi (zodiac sign) for one year, while Saturn stays in one sign for two and half years. Therefore, debilitation of these planets gives significant challenges in one’s life even if their Mahadashas don’t come in entire lifetime. Because whenever the subperiods of these planets come, desired results get difficult achieve. If such debilitated planets occupy any bad houses the results are even more drastic.
