T he 6th house is a house of enemies, disease, litigation, digestive power

and everyday work. This house is the house of karmic difficulties that
express themselves through enemies, debts, struggles and challenges to
serving others in life. It represents the drudgery of going to work everyday
and having the discipline to do it. The key to the 6th house is the ability to
overcome our obstacles and having the courage fight and overcome them.
Of the three most challenging houses the 6th, 8th and 12th, the 6th house is the

The secret of the 6th house is discipline. Are the planets strong enough in their connection to the 6th house and
do they allow us to do our exercise regularly, eat properly, do our yoga regularly and not eat that extra piece
of cheese cake at the party? If we can find the courage to be disciplined, then the challenges of the 6th house
can be overcome. If we get diagnosed with health issues connected to the 6th house, we can get through them
if we do what our doctor says and get regular exercise and be disciplined about diet. If we have weak planets
afflicted the 6th house, then we may be lazy, self-indulgent and the problems will continue.
The 6th house is the sign of enemies where we meet people who challenge us and even become hostile,
perpetually challenging and defying our sense of I. In modern times, our enemies usually turn up as bosses
or co-workers who snipe at us or try to bring us down. Malefic planets here will still have problems but they
will have the ability to defeat their enemies. If we have malefics in the 6th like Mars or Saturn or Rahu, we
have the fierceness to rise up and fight our challenges and defeat them but if we have benefics in the 6th house
like Venus and Jupiter, we may be so nice and let them have their way as we become accommodating and will
not like to make waves. On the highest level, the lessons of the 6th house teach us how to defend ourselves.
Sometimes litigation will arise so that we learn how to fight for our rights and what is due to us.
Examine the 6th house for your attitude and discipline about going to work regularly and working hard to achieve
our goals. If we have a debilitated Saturn connected to the 6th house, we might be lazy at work or be suffering
from having to hard labor and we may not want to get up and go to work at all. We may have problems with
co-workers or tenants. If we have a strong Mars in the 6th like in Aries, we may rise to the top of our field and
defeat those we compete with at work, overcome illness and be liked by our co-workers.
The 6th house is a house of self-improvement and service and we have a lot of well-off planets in the 6th house. We
will be motivated to take seminars and continually grow to become better persons, to excel at work and to grow
in our field. Hence if you have a weak 6th house or 6th house owner, then you need to work on yourself, take
those seminars, grow and not be lazy as the 6th house always benefits from hard work and discipline.
The 6th house also is connected to our digestive power and appetite which also becomes an extension of our
drive to become better and reach the top. Malefics here, like the Sun and Mars will create a lot of fire in the
belly to digest well and move forward in life. Serious afflictions to the 6th house like a debilitated Sun may
create a weak stomach with a low appetite and hence a low drive to move forward in your life due to lack of
confidence. The planets always have multiple levels of meaning and metaphor. Therefore health problems in
the 6th house will be connected to issues around our level of development, having learned the lessons of being
stoic and doing regular work and being disciplined around our health.
So be grateful for the lessons of the 6th house. They force us to stand up and fight and be disciplined and if
we do, we can master our territory, excel at work, be healthy and overcome our problems. It always takes
reaching back for the positive side of Mars, courage and the strong side of Saturn, discipline to persevere and
they are often the remedies. When we master 6th house, we are ready to move onto the 7th house. We will be
able locate and position ourselves in relation to others and learn compromise and by then we have developed
a keen understanding of ourselves.

Vastu Corrections for

Financial Problems, Marriage Problems and Health Problems


Water Affliction in the South Direction leads to flush in finance, disharmony and more.
Similarly, Fire Affliction in the North leads to Increased Expenditure, health problems and
Litigations. Can this be corrected, the Vastu Way?

T he Science of Vastu gives importance to the primary elements and their placement with reference to a
construction. Vastu clearly identifies the primary elements based on the 9 module plan called the Peetha
Mandala. While it identifies the four cardinal sectors as knowledge areas it very clearly recognizes the angular
sectors northeast as water, southeast as fire, southwest as space, northwest as wind and the central sector of
the mandala as earth.

Water Chaos in the South

In this part, we will understand the results of the imbalance created by having water in the south sector. The
south sector consists of three modules - southeast, south and southwest. Water in the south in any of the zones
is bad and constant activation can cause displeasure and unhappiness.

Two of these three sectors can be further divided into two each south of southeast and east of southeast, south
of southwest and west of southwest. This means we have five sectors to be reckoned.

Indicative Table of Sectors

Results arrogance, diarrhoea, differences financial leading to

friction with menstrual cycle, accidents, Marital friction. Servility.
parents and etc detrimental zeal Litigations

However if water is used for cleansing and wash purposes like toilet flushing, etc, south and southeast sector areas
can be conveniently used. As a rule water in the southwest is absolutely bad in the form of wells, underground
tanks but can be located in overhead tanks, not in the southwest, but in the west of southwest of the building. It
is pertinent to note that pollution in the southwest in the form of toilets and septic tanks can lead to disastrous
results like polluting the minds of elders with respect to the younger generation creating great disharmony in
the family (and business) and flush out finances too.


A Case Study
Deepa came to me and said that her mother-in-law was constantly negating her every move to such an
extent that she could neither concentrate on her work nor relax back at home. She said that it was a
home built as per Vastu master bedroom in southwest, childrens room in northeast, a prayer room
to its east and guest room in northwest, underground water tank in northeast and overhead tank in the
southwest. Yet life was becoming miserable because of the elder lady. When I went to their home and
checked I found that parents in law were in the master bedroom. To the southwest of their room was the
toilet. I also found that the septic tank was right on the southwest corner of the site. This young lady and
her husband who were in the process of planning their progeny were in the northeast room. I noticed
that the mother-in-law was a Martian sign with the moon debilitated. I told Deepa that some simple
relocation, shifting of the septic tank and non or minimal use of the southwest toilet could mellow the
mother-in-laws attitude towards her. I asked the parents-in-law to move to the northeast room, Deepa
and her husband to the nothwest room that had the toilet room to its southeast. I told her parents-in-
law use their new attached bathroom which was to the northwest of their bedroom. I also suggested that
the southwest room could be used as a gym for Deepa and her husband. I got the septic tank relocated
slightly off southwest. Three years later they have a bonny baby boy, both of them work and their child
is in the care of the mother-in-law. Of course the mother-in-law, with a smile on her face, has always a
word of praise for her daughter-in-law (and the kid too)!

A Case Study
A young couple, the husband working in a software company, came to me saying that their twelve year
daughter was not interested in studies and would confine herself to her room, scribbling irrelevant
images in her note books. When I queried a bit, the wife told me that that she spent her time investing
in short term shares. I looked into the floor plan and found that though the kitchen was rightly placed
in the southeast, most of the electrical gadgets like microwave, grinder and refrigerator were active in
the north sector of the kitchen.

I also looked into the young girls horoscope and found that her intelligence constellation was strong. I
was convinced that the couples fights were reason for the sensitive daughters disturbed mental frame. I
suggested that they relocate the microwave and grinder to the east platform and draw the power for the
refrigerator from the west of northwest plugs that were lying idle. I also suggested them to play some
sacred chants in the daughters room during nights at minimal volume. I told them this could create
harmony. Their fights did minimise. The daughter came out of her confines and began concentrating on
her studies. The couple began to spend quality time with her and the wife started sharing her investment
ideas with the husband.

Astrological Secrets to Becoming Wealthy


The Horoscope has some Secrets Hidden in It. Certain Combinations Reveal the Way in which
you can earn Wealth and Overcome your Financial Problems.

Why is Wealth Important?

Millionaires dont use astrology, billionaires do J P Morgan

Becoming wealthy is one of the important paths that you have to undertake in your life. This is supported by
our sages as well. Our Vedas clearly say that Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha are the four purusharthas or
life goals. The second one, Artha, translates to wealth. When I say becoming wealthy, you can do it in two ways.
By earning in ethical ways, and the other by cheating. Ratan Tata, Amitabh Bacchan, Sachin Tendulkar have all
made large wealth through ethical earnings. On the other hand a large section of the political representatives
have made their wealth by cheating. There is nothing wrong in creating wealth so long as it is done in an ethical
Vedic Astrology is one of the greatest sciences which offers techniques to simplify and better your life in many
aspects. One such technique that we have at our disposal is to become wealthy. By showing your horoscope to
a well-read astrological scholar, you can understand the special strengths that you possess and the compatible
professions you can pursue, to earn wealth ethically.
In the present paper, I show you how to determine the compatible professions or business through which you
can earn wealth, and remedies that you can undertake to overcome existing financial problems. Read on.

How to Determine Wealth with Vedic Astrology

Your horoscope plays a major role to determine your strength, weaknesses and compatible professions. The
basic chart otherwise known as Rasi chart gives one a broad overview of these aspects, and the second divisional
chart, otherwise known as the hora chart gives specific insights on your compatible professions, problems and
challenges that you will encounter and ways or remedies to overcome these.
The Hora Chart is the chart used to see all matters related to the second house. The standard hora chart where
all the planets are in Cancer and Leo is mostly used to study the relative complexion of the body. The particular
type of Hora chart that we will be discussing in this paper is used to study the finances. Finances here indicate
the liquid cash or the regular fixed/variable income which is necessary to sustain.

How to Create a Wealth Hora Chart?

Here is a step by step guide to construct the Wealth Hora Chart.
1. The Zodiac is divided into two categories namely day signs and night signs. The night signs are Cancer,
Gemini, Taurus, Aries, Sagittarius and Capricorn. The rest are day signs.
2. To construct the Hora Chart that shows wealth, money and finance, we first consider the sign in which a
planet is placed. If the portion of the sign is ruled by the Sun, it corresponds to a day sign in Hora chart and
if by the Moon, a night sign.
3. If the planet is in the first half of the sign i.e. < 15 degrees, then the Hora sign belongs to ruler of that sign
in Rasi
4. If it is the second half, i.e. > 15 degrees, the sign in Hora Chart belongs to the ruler of the 11th

I have simplified these in a table format. His Standard Hora Chart is as below:

Obituary Note by Nirupama


Dr. Chakrapani Ullal passed away on October 28th, 2017 at Los Angeles.Referred to as a 'National
Treasure', Dr. Ullal, who academically had a master's degree in Law, travelled widely, taught Jyothisha
and lectured and at the same time maintained a very busy practice of astrology with high profile clients as
well as the common people. While Dr. Ullal owes his great knowledge to his father, he also acknowledges
Dr. Raman when he says in an interview in Jyotish-Star of Christina Collins. He tells the interviewer
Juliana Swanson that "... When I completed high school, I took more interest in astrology because of the
inspiration I received from Dr. Ramans writings".
The Astrological eMagazine pays tributes to a great astrological scholar and conveys its deep condolences
to the bereaved family and innumerable beneficiaries of his advice (and his students) worldwide.


An in-depth guide to interpreting the

Sixth House

N o man is really happy. Some who have immense wealth are worried about the health of their wives and
children. Others are denied the happiness of seeing the face of a son. Still some others who have every
other comfort on earth are tortured by the most awful kinds of diseases. Failure in profession causes anxiety in
some and there are many who feel depressed because they are not able to save a pie in spite of their enviable
incomes. But of all these, the most lamentable thing is the failure of ones own health. Health is the foundation
on which the edifice of his plan for the future is built. Health is the real wealth. Now, has the sixth house in a
horoscope anything to do with this? What else does it signify? This is what I propose to discuss in this short article.
The sixth house is one of the three baneful houses in a horoscope. It represents abdomen, wounds and
sores, diseases, debts, fear, thieves, scandal, disappointment etc. Mars who denotes fire, enemies, weapons,
perseverance, courage, leadership etc., also should figure prominently along with the lord of six and planets
occupying and aspecting the sixth when judging the effects of the sixth house. It is said that the strength of the
house reduces its bad effects and we know the strength of the lord of any house is the chief factor which makes
the house powerful. Thus if the lord of one is powerful and well-disposed, health, honour, prosperity etc., result.
If it is weak, ill-health, adversity etc., will be experienced. This rule holds good with regard to all auspicious
houses. How does it stand in relation to houses six, eight and twelve? Does the strength of the lord of six confer
good health or ill-health; success over enemies or defeat at the hands of the enemies? Here opinions apper
to differ. The Harsha Yoga described in Phaladeepika is stated to give happiness, fortune, strong body, success
over enemies, fear in doing evil deeds, leadership of famous men, wealth etc., and for the formation of this
yoga the lord of six should be placed in inauspicious houses, it should be aspected by or joined with malefics, or
malefics should join the sixth house. The same author expresses a different view when giving AsthraYoga which
is formed by benefics joining or aspecting six, when its lord does not occupy eight or twelve but occupies other
auspicious houses and has good strength. This Yoga would give a good physique, argumentative nature, scars
over the body, a mind to do cruel actions and courage and strength to defeat and kill his powerful enemies. The
contradiction that we find here is with regard to physique and courage of the person and we are left in doubt
as to whether it is the strength or the weakness of the lord of six which confers a strong and healthy body and
courage to vanquish the enemies. How can success over the enemies, a strong body, etc., result under entirely
different conditions of the strength of the sixth house? We are confused. But the clue to interpret the effects of
the strength of the lord of six is furnished by the last verse of chapter 6 of the same book. According to that, if
the lords of six, eight and twelve are strong and posited in kendra or thrikona when the lords of one, ten, four
and nine occupy six, eight or twelve and are weak, that configuration goes by the name Dur-yoga and it would
produce all kinds of misfortunes. On the contrary, if lords of six, eight and twelve are weak and ill-placed when
lords of one, four, ten, and nine are strong and well-disposed the native of such a horoscope will be happy,
righteous, fortunate and wealthy. This shows the lords of good houses should be comparatively stronger than
lords of six, eight, and twelve to confer good results. Now we can reconcile the difference in view regarding the
strength of the lord of six in this manner, viz., if the lords of good houses especially the lord of one is strong, the
sixth house lord need not be weak to minimise the bad results of the house. But if they are not strong enough,
the sixth house should necessarily be weak. In other words, the beneficial houses should always be stronger than
the baneful houses. The yoga described in Phaladeepika under chapter 16 goes to prove this. Therein it is said
that if the lord of one is much stronger than the lord of six and is standing in a benefic navamsa with benefic
conjunction and aspect when the lord of four is strong and posited in kendra or trikona, the native would be
strong, healthy and fortunate, Sarvartha Chintamani says (Chapter 5, verse 112) that if the lord of six is weak and
aspected by malefics or posited between malefics, the native will have fear from enemies. From the very next
verse we see that under the same conditions if the lord of one is powerful, the native will conquer his enemies.

Panchanga for November 2017
First column gives the English dates and next to it the names of the regional months and dates. The ending moments of
Tithi, Nakshatra, Yoga and Karana are given in the 24 hour clock extending to 30 hours.
Of the Nityayogas, Vishkumbha, Parigha, Vyatipata, Vajra, Vyaghata, Vaidhruthi, Sula, Ganda and Atiganda are generally
spurned for auspicious events and they are marked in red in the Panchanga. Vydhruti pervades from 34640 to 360 and
Vyatipata from 21320 to 22640 of the sum of the Nirayana longitudes of the Sun and the Moon. Vydhruti and Vyatipata
punyakaala are observed on the day when the yogas prevail for 1 hours or more, when Sraddha is performed by the
astute. These two belong to the shannavati -96- Sraddhas ordained for a householder. Considering the astronomical
implications, the Sayana Vydhruti and Vyatipata days are also indicated in the Panchanga. The auspicious Amritayoga
and Siddhayoga and inauspicious Maranayoga and Prabalarishtayoga come under Amirtaadiyoga scheme and are different
from the Nityayogas.
The Karana is the half of the Tithi. They are mainly classified as Sthira - fixed or immovable and Chara or moveable.
The Chara Karanas are seven in number and the Sthira are only four. The fixed ones are inauspicious. They are Sakuni,
Chatushpada, Naga and Kimsatugna. The seven movable Karanas are in their order, Bava, Baalava, Kaulava, Taitila,
Gara, Vanija and Vishti (or Bhadra.) Among the movable Karanas Vishti or Bhadra is considered to be of dreadful. The
forbidden Karanas are marked in red for easy identification.
We have most of our religious observances pegged on to the Tithis. Pournamipooja Chandradarisana, Sankataharachaturthi
Vrata, Shastivrata, Ekadasi Vrata and Pradosha are specially mentioned in the Panchanga. Pournamipooja is done in the
evenings on days the full Moon is prevalent. Chandradarisana is observed on the evening on the day when the crescent
Moon appears for the first time in the west after the Amavasya. Chaturthi of the Krishnapaksha or Bahula Chaturthi of
every month is known as Sankataharachaturthi. The evenings of Sukla and Krishna Trayodasi days are specially observed
as Pradosha Vrata days.
