Dignity + Combustion

I've been noticing this in a lot of charts lately but I'm having a hard time finding any explanations of this online. Since combustion burns and overshadows a a planet, how would that be affected by the combust planet being exalted or domicile? Some examples being Mercury combust in Gemini or Mars combust in Capricorn.

I understand the difference between essential and accidental dignity, but I'm still a little bit confused about the concept of combustion and I'm not sure how it interacts with essential dignity.

According to some Hellenistic authors, a planet in exaltation, domicile or bound is not hurt by the beams. However, in my experience, the star is still weakened to the extent it overrides the previous condition.

Re: Dignity + Combustion

In my opinion combustion overcomes dignity and renders the combust planet weak for any influence; however, I follow the Ankara (old Turkish) outlook regarding the orb of combustion, which is less than the traditional orb (I follow Ankara's 5 degree orb of combustion; also-again following the Ankara outlook-I do not credit "under the beams" with any significant effect)
