43If a strong planet in the house of a benefit is aspected by malefic planets, it destroys the influence of the aspects; if the planet is weak and staying (in a cardine), a malefic destroys the influence of (both) its aspect and the place.
44But the influence of (the planet) staying (in a cardinc) is felt if it is aspected by a benefit and possesses the qualities of a good place. This (influence) results from their various combinations with one another in accordance with their strengths, which are characterized by their (closeness to their) exaltations.
45Whatever was said in its (proper) order to be the influence (with respect to) actions (of the native), (astrologers) know to be the rule (with respect to) the thoughts (of the querist). I shall establish the exact thoughts with their individual dispositions, natures, and character with respect to the zodiacal signs.
