1 article for "Affliction"

Affliction [Astro*Index]

Unfavorable conditions for planets or sensitive points traditionally due to a conjunction, square, or opposition with the malefics Mars or Saturn. Many astrologers now include all eighth harmonic aspects (45° multiples) in this category. This produces some tension and lack of ease between the planets. The more afflictions a planet receives, the more problems and challenges that planet will cause in the personality. Horary astrologers may refer to an afflicted planet as impedited or impeded.
