Sun as Agni or fire is the deity who
1. takes our prayers to the Gods and ancestors
2. Illumines the mind with spiritual and transcendental knowledge associated with the third eye
3. Creates, maintains and dissolves the entire creation.
4. Purifies the individual by cleaning them with spiritual heat thus cleansing of individual beings.
This burning of sin is the phenomena of combustion.
Planet that is combust is said to be (Kapa) angry, incompatible or contradicting and it has become invisible. It has to obey the Sun God. It may be a blessing in disguise.
Houses ruled by the combust planet may be deprived of their resources or have their circumstances dried up.
Jupiter when it comes through the fires off combustion will mean you will pass through a phase of spiritual growth like gold passing through fire to come clean.
A visit to a temple or doing a pilgrimage burns all sins and produces a spiritual shine.
Just like drinking the pure milk of a happy cow removes all diseases of the body. The combustion of Jupiter is for 12°.

Venus combustion means the girl becomes a Moon (mother)
Combustion of Venus will have her desires for pleasure repressed,
depleting her water element affecting the sperm and ovum, hence making her fertility low. Her usual refined artistic talents will be hardened while the sexual appetite will be enhanced.
