The term affliction means negative association which invites problems in a person’s life. Although the weak planets and the afflicted planets have their ways to create problems, both are different. A weak planet does not let you realize the full potential of planets or house. For example, a weak Venus may be a hindrance in getting married while afflicted Venus may lead to a bad relationship with a spouse.
