THE BHAVAS SIGNIFIED BY PARENTS
By
Acharya 
 
V.KUMAR 
HONORARY FACULTY 
 AIFAS, BANGALORE CHAPTER –II 
Introduction:
The personality of every human being evolves from infancy to old age beginning from the birth. Astrology unravels the pattern of such an evolution through the12 bhavas of the horoscope. Starting from Lagna , various aspects of one’s life unfold ineach of the twelve bhavas. For example, Lagna signifies birth of the physical body and allits attributes like colour, stature, health, honour, etc . It is usually said that everythingabout a person is signified by Lagna. The second house not only signifies food,nourishment or the wealth that supports growth and sustenance of the body but alsospeech and family of the native. Although third bhava indicates physical prowess andcourage ,etc connected to the bodily aspects, it also signifies one’s younger co-borns. Thefourth being ‘sukha sthana’ connected to general happiness of the native, it also signifiesthe mother of the native and Gruha ,Vaahana soukya, and so on.The word ‘Bhava’ means many things depending on the contextual use. Its generallyrecognized connotations are feeling, emotion, innate property, the state of being,inclination or disposition of mind, quality of existence, etc . As such , in Astrology , itconnotes the various states of being , rather the different portfolios of our life. In ahoroscope, Lagna marks the commencement of one’s life and succeeding Bhavassequentially signify all other aspects of life one by one as they unfold in one’s lifetime. Not only that. Each house possesses a link to all other houses in a particular area of life.Also, many new physical realms manifest in each of the succeeding houses based on the preceding ones. Details of different portfolios of life allocated to each bhava are availablein almost all the classics on astrology. But, there are some differences in these allocations. 
 Here,it is pertinent to point out that there is no information available in anyextant literature on the subject to explain the rationale behind allotting a particular karakatwa to a particular bhava
except an appreciable effort made in this direction by Sri.J. N. Bhasin in his book titled “
Astro Sutras
” ( pages 57 to 62 , Sagar Publications,1996edition). Even the explanation offered by Sri. Bhasin is incomplete as it dwells upon only aspecific significance of each bhava although there are multiple significations allotted to

each of the 12 Bhavas. No doubt similar research , on the lines of the one by Sri. Bhasin, isrequired as regards other significations as well.However, it is generally observed that the allotment follows a natural pattern of interlink acceptable to our day-to-day pattern of living. Almost all these rulerships (excepta few controversies) are time-tested , accepted and widely followed since thousands of years across the globe . This article of mine is an effort to understand and sort out onesuch exceptional controversy related to the bhavas ruled by our parents.
The 12 Bhavas and our Relationships :
As already hinted, there is a link between the various bhavas of a horoscope in eachand every area of our life .In so far as the domain of 
relationships
 
is concerned , the link is illustrated below:The lagna bhava signifies the self. Second bhava signifies the family in which one is born and also the one he would acquire after growing of age. Third bhava governs one’sco-borns especially the younger ones and father-in –law ( being 9
th
to 7
th
).
The fourthrules mother
.The fifth rules one’s siblings and paternal grandfather ( being 9
th
to 9
th
).The sixth signifies one’s enemies and maternal uncle/aunt ( being 3
rd
to 4
th
).The seventhrules one’s spouse and also all partners in business. The eighth rules the family of spouse.
The ninth house signifies one’s father
. The tenth signifies mother-in-law (being 4
th
to7
th
)and the husband of mother ( being 7
th
to 4
th
). Eleventh signifies neighbours and elder co- borns The twelfth signifies paternal grand mother (being 4
th
to 9
th
). Based on similar analogies, other left out relationships can also be deduced from the various houses of thehoroscope.
 But, as already stated ,out of the above , there exists a basic controversy regarding the bhavas ruled by our parents.
In Vedic Astrology, 4
th
house is ascribed to one’s mother in a vast majority of Astrological classics . But , so far as the house of father is concernedthere is a wide variation. While some classics prefer 9
th
Bhava , some others prescribe 10
th
as the house of father. Even in western Astrology , there is a difference of opinion on thehouses related to one’s parents. Let us examine the issue in greater detail.
Astrological Classics and Bhavas related to parents :
In all the widely followed Vedic Classics such as Brihat Parashara Hora, BrihatJataka, Jataka Parijatha, Phaladeepika, Shambu Hora Prakasha, Uttara Kalamruta,Jatakabharanam, Hora Makarand, Bhavartha Ratnakara, Maansagari, etc 4
th
house isunanimously allocated to one’s Mother. To signify mother , the words like janani, Amba,ambu and Mathru have been used .In Saravali, the word ‘Bandhava’ has been used whichis a common term for all relatives and in Daivagna Vallabha, both Janitri and Janaka are
 
Page 3 of 7
used for 4
th
house , meaning both parents relate to the same house. In Brihat Jataka, 4
th
house is called as ‘Bandhu’( meaning Relatives) and ‘Griha’(meaning house or residence).As regards the bhava signified by one’s father , there is no such commonality.Brihat Parashara Hora, Shambu Hora Prakasha, Jatakabharanam, Maansagari, Jatak alankara, etc assign 10
th
bhava to father (Janaka, Pithru). Phaladeepika, Uttara Kalamruta,Bhavartha Ratnakar, etc assign 9
th
Bhava to one’s father. Besides, almost all theAstrological classics available in vernacular languages of South India including the NadiTexts in Tamil and a vast majority of modern day practitioners of the science even in North India, consider 9
th
Bhava as the house signified by one’s father. But, Jatak Parijata by Vaidhyanatha allots both 5
th
and 9
th
houses to father.A perusal of some of the famous works in western Astrology ( both by a few pioneers and modern authors ) reveals a complexity existing on the issue. The opinions of some authors is tabulated in the chart given below, for easy reference :
