Which planets are benefic?
What is benefic? Benefic means a beneficial influence. The traditional benefic planets in astrology are the Venus and Jupiter. For practical purposes, the sun, moon, Venus, and Jupiter can all be considered benefic. Some add Neptune to this list, although some consider Neptune a malefic because it can cause confusion, delusion, and dissipation. So, why do some astrologers consider Neptune a benefic? Well, because Neptune, like a fairy godmother, can make dreams come true.
Mercury is rather neutral.
