    In Sanskrit it is  (“krura”) – “rough, harsh, strong.” Malefic planets possess this nature, that is why they are called “malefic.” By contrast, “benefic” planets are (“saumya”) or “gentle, soft, and generous.” – Brihat Parashara Hora Sastra

    The term Malefics and Benefics or Krura and Soumya are Sanskrit terms used by Maharishi Parashara, Jaimini and others in the greatest scriptures of Jyotish. Make no mistake, these planets are benefic or malefic based on their PAC – Position, Aspect & Conjunction in a birth chart and their effects are directly proportional to one’s own past thoughts and actions. Western Astrology uses a zodiac which is Astronomically incorrect and fictitious and I know that it is not in their nature to really tell a client straight up about impending good times or bad times. They simply cannot because of the limitation of the Tropical System which is predominantly based on transits and natal aspects. Westerners are culturally different and do not like to say or hear anything negative about their horoscope and always want to hear ‘good things’ even if there are negative indications !!

    Lord Vishnu has incarnated as the nine planets to give to each being the fruits of his good and bad karma. A malefic is a malefic and a benefic is a benefic. Plain and Simple. Mars can cause stabbings, surgery, bleeding, beheadings, shootings etc while Rahu can cause severe suffering because of shock, sudden transformation and terrible emotional suffering, the same way Saturn can cause extreme sorrow, melancholy and depression that can lead to suicide. Don’t fool yourself ! In a Mundane Chart their aspects and conjunction can cause mass calamities in the form of earthquakes, tornadoes, volcanoes and human initiated mass genocide, violence and wars. If your head is cut off or you are shot in cold blood there won’t be any spiritual aspect left to improve on with regard to ANY planet. This is the reality of Karma as interpreted by Vedic Astrology.

    I am not being fatalistic, just giving you real wisdom. Of course, Jyotish or Vedic Astrology is spiritual when one learns from their planetary induced suffering and lessons and takes a hint and realization from his Vedic Horoscope on ‘why did this happen to me’.

    Vedic Astrologers like me are pure pedigree Brahmins who have learnt Jyotish from a Guru/Shishya tradition which dates back many hundreds of years to Achutya Dasa, a disciple of Caitanya Mahaprabhu himself, who gave the world the Hare Krishna Mahamantra. I do not sugar-coat things or veil the positive or negative connotations, events and areas in a client’s birthchart. If I was to say everything is good, when it is quite the opposite, what is the use of seeking my service ? How will that help you in understanding and transcending your Karmic backlog and harnessing the positivity of your favorable planets and Dasas ? I agree that a lot of us Indian Jyotishis are blatant and extremely straight forward which may come across to the average Westerner as uncompassionate, shocking and harsh. This isn’t because we are a species devoid of feeling and compassion, it is simply because of the extremely deterministic nature of the Vedic Astrology system itself. I hope this enriches your intellect and enhances your wisdom.

    Aum Namah Shivaya
