In Vedic Astrology, a planet is said to be combust when it comes very close to the Sun and loses its luster and shine due to this closeness and thus such planet is said to be combust. For example, if Venus comes very close to the Sun in our Solar system, it becomes combust and an alphabet “c” is shown in front of Venus while showing horoscope details for the particular horoscope having such combust Venus. In the same way all the other planets like Moon and Jupiter also become combust if they come within a certain range of closeness to the Sun. This range of closeness is measured in degrees and it is different for different planets. Following are the degrees of combustion for Moon, Jupiter, Venus, Mars, Mercury and Saturn which means that these planets become combust when they come within a specific distance to the Sun :

Moon is said to be combust when it comes within 12 degrees on either side of the Sun.

Jupiter is said to be combust when it comes within 11 degrees on either side of the Sun.

Venus is said to be combust when it comes within 10 degrees on either side of the Sun when it is in forward motion and it is said to be combust within 8 degrees of the Sun when it is in Retrograde Motion.

Mars is said to be combust when it comes within 17 degrees on either side of the Sun.

Mercury is said to be combust when it comes within 14 degrees on either side of the Sun when it is in forward motion and it is said to be combust within 12 degrees of the Sun when it is in Retrograde Motion.

Saturn is said to be combust when it comes within 15 degrees on either side of the Sun.

Rahu and Ketu never become combust due to their closeness to Sun as they are shadow planets.

When a planet becomes combust, it loses some of its power and it becomes comparatively weaker due to which such planet is not able to work properly in a horoscope and it is also not able to protect its significances in a proper way and as a result the native having such combust planet in his horoscope may have to suffer from problems related to the general as well as the specific significances of the planet. For example, if Venus is combust in a horoscope due to its closeness to the Sun, the native having such combust Venus may not have healthy and good relations with his wife as well as with his lovers or other women as this is the general significance of Venus and if Venus indicates profession, trade and business in the horoscope of the native as its specific significance, then such native may have to face delays and problems in his profession and he may have to struggle and wait for a long period of time in order to succeed in his profession.

Hence the presence of a combust planet in the horoscope of a native can cause some problems related to various spheres of a native’s life and such problems can only be reduced by providing extra strength to such combust planet and such strength is provided through astrological remedies. Vedic Jyotish mentions various remedies in order to provide necessary strength to combust planets and such remedies may differ from person to person depending upon the nature of combust planet in the horoscope of the native. If a combust planet is benefic in a horoscope, the use of gemstone for that planet is recommended in order to provide strength to that planet whereas if a combust planet is malefic in a horoscope, the use of Mantra, Yantra and Pooja for that planet is recommended in order to provide strength to that planet. This way, the natives suffering from various problems due to presence of combust planets in their horoscopes can reduce these problems or get rid of these problems by providing strength to such combust planets with the help of various astrological remedies.
