The Combust Planets

Whenever a planet appears very near to the Sun, it is divested of its brightness (luster) and is called a combust planet. While in the state of combustion, the planets lack power to protect and promote the significations/houses ruled by them. The planets are considered combust when they have following longitudinal difference with the Sun on either side:

  • Moon – 12 degrees
  • Mars – 17 degrees
  • Mercury – 14 degrees (12 degrees when retrograde)
  • Venus – 10 degrees (8 degrees when retrograde)
  • Jupiter – 11 degrees
  • Saturn – 15 degrees

The effects of combustion are maximum when the planet is within 5 degrees on either side of the Sun.

FAQs about combust planets and their effects

A planet is combust when it is in conjunction with the Sun and therefore hidden from sight by the light of the Sun. Traditionally this is a serious debility and implies that the planet is weakened or restricted in power. However, if the planet is within 17 minutes of the Sun, it is termed Cazimi – in the heart of the Sun – and considered strengthened by the union.

In his Introduction, William Lilly stated that the combust planet should be in the same sign as the Sun and within 8° 30′ – beyond this distance, but within 17 ° of the Sun, the planet is said to be under the Sun’s beams. This condition is debilitating, but not as severe as combustion.
