Vedic Astrology: Saptavargaja Bala

Saptavargaja Bala means the strength of the seven-fold division. For calculating the Saptavargaja bala
1.The relative strength of a planet either being in the sign of the friend or enemy is first ascertained. Moreover the temporary friendship or enmity is also ascertained. The combination of temporary and permanent relationship gives us more comprehensive combined relationship. This relationship is applied to sapatvargas and then the strength is ascertained.
2.Out of shodahsavargas Rasi, Hora, Drekkana, Saptamsa, Navamsa, Dwadashamsa and Trimsamsa together create saptavarga. For ready reference we are giving the table of Permanent Friendship and Temporary Friendship between the planets.

Temporary friendship
Temporary friendship occurs due to the mutual placement between two planets in the horoscope. When two planets occupy the 2nd & 12th 3rd & 11th and 4th & 10th positions from each other they become temporary friends. For instance the Sun's natural enemy is Saturn and vice versa. Thus if their placement is 2nd & 12th from each other, they become temporary friends even though they are natural enemies of each other. Conversely, if they are placed 5th & 9th from each other they become temporary enemies as well as natural enemies of each other.
Following table shows the temporary relationship between planets.

    1. How can you provide a static table of Temporary relationship? I believe temporary relationship depends upon placement of planets and will vary from horoscope to horoscope. Please explain if this is not the case.

    2. I think the example chart is missing here. That's the reason for confusion.
