Occidental and oriental planets

Bismillahir Rahman nir Raheem
Assalam oalaikum,
Planets are occasionally described as being occidental or oriental of the Sun. The term occident originally means setting or perishing, as in sunset. On the other hand ‘orient’ originally means rising or emerging, as in a sunrise.
If a planet is said to be 'oriental of the Sun' it implies that it appears in the east in the morning, rising before the Sun. Similarly, if a planet is described as 'occidental of the Sun' it means that it follows the sun by diurnal motion, and is visible after sunset.

The Moon sets in the constellation just before or after the Sun, at 12 degrees.
The Mercury sets in the constellation just before or after the Sun, at 13 degrees
The Venus sets in the constellation just before or after the Sun, at 12 degrees
The Mars sets in the constellation just before or after the Sun, at 18 degrees.
The Jupiter sets in the constellation just before or after the Sun, at 15 degrees.
The Saturn sets in the constellation just before or after the Sun, at 15 degrees.

Till a planet is in the setting position it is called Tahat-ul-Shag. At this juncture all the amals related to success or attainment should be strictly avoided because as I have explained earlier, the planets are considered to be malefic during this phase.
Just like the Sun, all the planets rise and set. In amilyaat the rise and set of the different planets are used to do specific amals. At times the taweez/naqsh is prepared keeping in mind the rise and set of these planets.
Astrology is a difficult discipline but if one has an insatiable interest and determined to gain mastery over it then it may seem easy. Talisman also depends on the rise and set of planets. Anybody who has a little knowledge about occult may be aware of how powerful a talisman can be. However, the effectiveness of the talisman also depends to a great extent on the nuances of astrology such as the rise and set of planets.
