The interesting consideration also when seeing shadbala in closer view (Devil always being in details, as they say!), exaltation is counted as a factor in shadbal which is essentially quantitative, but only in kshetra varga, not the others. Then we have the states or avasthas which when looked closer work in a seemingly inharmonious way from exaltation etc, for instance a maximally exalted moon will be 'DEAD' in avastha (Baladi consideration) but AWAKE (in shayanadi consideration)...! (?)

And, if we look at BPHS, Parashara seems to indicate that exalted (max.) planets are benefic and strong (Qualitative & Quantitative...!), "Svochhay Shubham Balam Poornay... etc)...! :-)

Now I know that many perhaps do not even use these, particularly beginners, let alone ashtakavarga, but in Jyotish, it seems SINGLETs are not the wise way to proceed? Jyotish being multifactorial...! ;-)



Addendum [Disclaimer] -- Just so there is no misinterpretation or misunderstanding, I am not a teacher and certainly NOT trying to teach anyone Jyotish fundamentals or anything like that or advice others to begin to look at jyotish considerations a bit more critically, and less with simplistic FAITH! And, hopefully, sincere honesty.
The wonderfully elastic Jyotish!Just sharing an article on shadbalas etc
