What is मूलत्रिकोण Mūla Trikona?

Classical Jyotishavidya assigns a super-performance degree range to each planet.

These glamorous degrees are called Mūla Trikona = root of fortune

  • literally, base (root) of the triangle = a cosmological power position

When a planet occupies its Moolatrikona range in radix, navamsha, or any varga, it produces strong beneficial effect.

Be on the lookout for impeding aspects which might hinder an otherwise glamorous mūlatrikoṇa planet.

However, unimpeded, these planets will give exceptionally comfortable and pleasing results.
