STHAN BALA A CONSIDERATION OF PLANETARY POTENCY


Sthan Bala is one of the most important considerations of planetary potency,
as part of Shad Bala (six-fold sources of planetary strength) in a chart.

An attempt is made to show the influence of
Sthan Bala through a case study.


Sthan Bala comprises of the following considerations:
1.Uchch Bala (exaltation)
2.Varga Bala (Sapta Varga bala : strength accruing out of positions in
Rasi, Hora, Dreshkan, Saptamsa, Navamsa, Dvadashamsa and
Trimshamsa)
3.Ojhayugma Rasi Bala (acquired by placement in odd, or even Rasi
and in odd, or even Navamsa)
4. Kendradi Bala (due to placement in Kona, or Panaphara, or
Apoklima House),
5.Dreshkan Bala (due to placement in first, second, or third decanate of
a Rasi).

- Angle of the house : distance between the starting point and end of the a
house = angle of the house, which could be slightly less or more than 30
degrees.
Eg: The angle of the 1

Divisions of the house : 1

- The mid point divides the house into 2 halves.

1
st

- The 1

- The residential strength of a planet in the first half is:
Longitude of a planet (-) Starting point (sandhi) of a house (/) divide by
angular distance of the first half.
2
nd
half or Uttara bhag:
- The 2

house (sandhi)
- The planet in the second half acquires residential strength as follows;

Longitude of end point (sandhi) (-) Longitude of planet (/) divide by
angular distance of the house.

Note:
- A planet placed in the mid point (Bhava Madhya) is strong and gives
good results.
- A planet placed on the border or bhava sandhi is weak and powerless,
incapable of giving good results.

- Effects of a planet in the house is assessed by the residential strength of
the house.
- The effect is felt in the main or sub period of the planet.
In the above case, the following effects were felt:
- The Sun has the highest residential strength and sthana bal. During the
Sun dasha the native prosecuted his higher studies in medicine.
According to vedic astrology, Sun is the karak for medicines as
mythology says that Sun god passed on the knowledge of medicine to
Dhanwantari and his children, the Aswini twins are the physicians of
the god. Further, Sun is the lord of IXth house, signifying higher
studies. Sun is in Virgo (health care) along with Mercury (exalted) and
Mars (surgery) also having sthana bal.
- The Moon has the third highest residential strength. As Moon is in the
IXth house (higher studes) and on the star of Magha, also an asterism
indicating medical studies. Being lord of VIIIth, it shows research.
Further VIIIth house shows research and operation theatres, aspected
by Saturn. All these conditions indicate research and higher studies in
orthopedic surgery. The native became one of the leading orthopedic
surgeons during Moon dasha.


UCHCHABAL
Exaltation point = 1 rupa or 60 shastiansh
Debilitation point = 0 (zero)
In between debilitation point and exaltation point, there will be gradual increase in
the strength of the planet.
The exaltation and debilitation points of the planets are as follows:
Planets Sun Moon Mars Merc Jup Venus Sat Rahu Ketu
Exaltation degree 10 33 298 165 95 357 200 50 230
