Besieged(religion, spiritualism, and occult)
Besieged is a traditional term used to describe the situation of a planet (particularly a significator) placed between two other planets and falling within both of their orbs of influence. The conflicting connotations of the word besieged derive from the tendency of an older generation of astrologers to call attention to conjunctions in which a benefic planet (e.g., Venus) was placed between two malefics (e.g., Mars and Saturn). A planet can be favorably besieged, however, as when placed between two benefic planets.
