I’m sure somebody else thought of this already, but it just clicked for me like I was the first to ever think about it so I had to share.
You know the two luminaries, right? The Sun and Moon. Their own homes are Leo and Cancer respectively. What else are Leo and Cancer? The third eye chakra. The two Rasis that give psychic abilities should any planets inhabit them in the 24th Varga (D24S in Kala).
So then I thought ok, so what about the Rasis the Sun and Moon are debilitated in? Coincidentally (not) they are also sequential, Libra and Scorpio. And they are the own (home) signs of Venus and Mars.
OK, Venus and Mars host the worst of the Sun and Moon, but guess what, they also host the best of them, through their (also sequential) exaltation Rasis of Aries and Taurus. Isn’t it great how it all fits together?
Therefore, Venus and Mars are kind of a worldly, defragmented, deconstructed version of the Sun and Moon, since they ‘host’ their opposite polarities.
Now I can go to sleep happier :)
