Auspicious planets in the chart will give good results at their hours, inauspicious planets will cause difficulty, as per all the general rules. Influences will be compounded according to the favorable or unfavorable nature of the planet ruling the day (like the Sun for sunday) and its relationship with the planet ruling the hour. The disposition of the Moon at the time is also important, as is the nature of the ascendant.
