Planetary Traits

There are 2 types of planets: malefics and benefics, i.e., the good and the bad planets. The natural benefic planets are Jupiter, Venus, the positive version of Mercury and the full moon. The natural malefics are the Sun, Mars, Saturn, Rahu and Kethu(celestial bodies). Mercury can also be a malefic planet owing to its negative effects in certain positions. In fact, every planet, including the sun and the moon have positive and negative traits.

Position of different planets in the various houses can have different outcomes. Each of the houses also has positive, negative and neutral traits. For instance, if the planet Saturn is in the 7th house, it is said to hold good prospects for marriage and relationships.
