What is Cancellation of Debilitation

Debilitated planets always play an important role in the horoscope. In general, they are first-rate malefic, even a benefic that is debilitated will harm those planets and houses it joins or aspects (particularly true for rasi aspects). Debilitated planets also indicate the ruin and loss of those things that they rule, including the things they naturally rule, the houses they rule, and anything that falls in their Rasi, Navamsa and nakshatra. But When their Debilitation is canceled they can bestow good result and make the native fortunate during their Dasha. There are certain factors that cancel debilitation. These factors cancel debilitation reducing the ill effects of the debilitated planet to actually increasing the success of the native. This is Known As Neech Bhanga Rajyoga.

When a planet is debilitated in a particular House, it weakens the house and its significations. But When that house receives the aspect of its owner, the said house will become strong and hence the debilitated planet will gain strength from it. For example Jupiter is debilitated in Makar Rashi. So when Jupiter is placed in the sign of Capricorn, it will make that house and its significations weak. But if Saturn aspects it, the sign will be strong from the aspect of its owner. So Jupiter will also gain strength out of it and it will overcome the weakness of debilitation.
