okay, makes sense. got another question regarding transits and functional malefics. today, 26th June 2017, mercury is few degree before mars. as per surya siddantha I think, mercury should become malefic planet. at the same time, mercury will square aspect Jupiter tomorrow. so, how do we see this combination?
a) mercury becomes malefic and shows malefic aspect on Jupiter. or option
b) since Jupiter is aspecting mercury, mercury will become benefic?
