EVERY individual not only keeps trying to
acquire more and more money and wealth by
different ways and means but also is very
anxious to know his chances of getting them.
Astrology is a very effective tool that can be employed
for forecasting these possibilities also in life. Whether
a native enjoys material luck in his life time and also
the amount of money and wealth that one may acquire,
besides the time of their acquisition, source, etc can
be known from a horoscope fairly accurately.
There are many sources, ways and means of gaining
wealth and money. The main possibilities
are through acquisition of Treasures hidden
, Lottery and Gambling, Graft/
bribe, gaining profits in speculations in stocks and
shares, through Inheritance, awards and honours, win
in Competitions, etc. Before proceeding further with
the details on all these, it is pointed out that first we
must examine a horoscope to know whether the
concerned native is basically destined to acquire a
good financial status in life or not, as it may so happen
that even a person who is poor initially may become
rich and affluent later, due to different reasons. Only
after knowing that, the actual ways and means of
acquiring such wealth and money, whether it would
be through a sudden/unexpected 'windfall' or is it
likely to be acquired gradually over a period of time,
etc is to be explored. However, in this write-up, the
basic propensity of a chart for getting unexpected
gains in wealth and money is only discussed. Here, it
must be kept in mind that we are more particular about
the possibilities of a person getting a significant and
considerable amount of money and wealth even
occasionally and not a meager/negligible one.
us begin with the general combinations indicating the
acquisition of sudden gains in a chart and then discuss
the possibilities specifically through some of the
sources mentioned above.
General combinations for Sudden gains
In general, the 2nd
house of a horoscope rules Wealth
and Money (Dhana).
5th house signifies
entertainment, speculations etc. 8th
house stands for
sudden, unexpected, secret wealth and inheritances
also, while the 11th house signifies all types of income/
gains. Hence, for any native to get unexpected and
sudden gains or windfall, mainly these four houses
and their lords should be strong, un-afflicted, well interconnected
and influenced by benefics in his chart.
Usually, the 4th house representing material
possessions and 9th house signifying oneís luck in this
life are also to be disposed of favourably for such
accomplishments. As the Upachaya houses (3,6,10,11)
are considered to be the houses of improvement
a horoscope, their role is also seen in some cases.
Apart from the above, the following points would also
be very useful in judging the potential for sudden gains
in a chart:
In Jataka Tatwa (chapter3, Dhana viveka,
sl. 2 to 5), the following combinations are said to
make a native rich suddenly :
1.Benefics in Upachaya (3,6,10&11) houses from Moon.
2. Navamsa dispositor of 10th lord occupying 11th house.
3. Lords of 2nd and 10th houses conjoined in Kendra or trikona in a chart.
4. If the 2nd lord is in Simhasanamsa, the native gets
sudden wealth. Also, in Chaturtha viveka (sl.90), a
native is said to own a house all of sudden if the lords
of 4th & 11th houses are conjoined in 4th house.
Any Vipareeta Rajayogas
formed in a chart
relating to 8th house / its lord confers unexpected wealth
to the native.
Generally, for a good financial status and gains,
the ascendant, 2nd
houses and their
lords should be strong, well influenced and well
interconnected in a chart. Also, the houses (2nd, 6th &10th) forming the artha trikona
of a chart are
Any inter-connection within Kendras or Trikonas,
or mutually between them, confers good financial
gains during the Dasa/Bhukti periods of the concerned
Sudden and unexpected gains are possible, if 2nd,
7th and 11th lords are posited in the Ascendant and
aspected by Jupiter.
Any un-afflicted Neechabhanga Rajayoga
formed in the chart confers a good amount of
unexpected wealth and money to the native.
If all the planets are occupying the first seven
houses of a chart forming a Grahamalika Yoga,
commencing from the Ascendant, the native becomes
very lucky in life and gets all wealth and comforts.
Generally, any kind of relationship (aspect,
conjunction, exchange of signs/stars, mutual
placement in angle/trine) among the lords of 1st, 2nd,
4th, 5th, 7th, 9th, 10th & 11th houses in a chart augurs
well for acquisition of sudden gains. Especially when
malefics like Rahu, Ketu, Mars and Saturn are well
with such relationships, it indicates
acquisition through unconventional (sometimes
If 8th lord is strong and in benefic aspects with
Moon and Venus, sudden gains from female
relationships are indicated by the houses influenced
by Moon and Venus or from a female indicated by
the house occupied by the 8th lord or the planets
conjoined with 8th lord.
If there are benefic yogas with 4th lord, gains of
land or house are indicated; gains from father, mother
or spouse are indicated by the benefic yogas with
Sun & 9th lord, Moon& 4th lord and Venus &7th lord,
The influence of Rahu in acquisition of unexpected
wealth and money needs a special mention. Its
association with 2nd, 5th, 8th &11th houses (especially
2nd&8th) confers a 'windfall' in his dasa/bhukti periods
often in an unorthodox, unlawful or an abnormal way,
subject to other attendant conditions in the chart.
In Jyothishaarnava Navaneetam
combinations are seen :
A person will gain financially or articles from foreign
sources if 11th lord is in 11th house with strength while
2nd lord is posited in a watery navamsa with the
Ascendant being a watery sign or its lord occupying
a watery Rasi (sl.376)
A native will receive donations/charities if 5th lord
is in 9th house as 9th lord is in 10th house in aspect to
the lord of Ascendant. (sl.316).
A native would prosper through his children, if 5th
lord is in 9th house with the aspect or company of 9th
lord or if the significator of fortunes (i.e., Jupiter) is in
5th house. (sl.288) iv) The source of acquisition of
money should be guessed based on the association of
10th lord. For example, if 10th lord is with 7th lord or
Venus, money will be acquired through spouse or
females. If 10th lord is in conjunction with Jupiter, it
will give wealth through the King or men of royalty,
through Sudras if with Saturn, and so on.
Acquisition of underground Treasures (nidhi)
The 4th house in a horoscope indicates oneís
possessions like land and building, vehicles, etc. As
such, it includes any treasure, hidden under the ground
also. 2nd house rules money and materials like gems
and jewels, etc. 9th house indicates oneís luck.
Therefore, a native would acquire a hidden or
abandoned treasure, if there are strong interconnections
between these house lords in any chart.
The following combinations are noteworthy in this
4th house and 4th lord being strong and connected
with 8th lord with the influence of a strong and benefic
2nd lord conjoined with 4th lord in 9th house.
Lords of 2nd and 11th houses conjoined in 4th house
with 4th lord as a benefic and also occupying a benefic
Lord of 11th house occupying 4th house in
conjunction with a benefic.
If the lords of 4th and 10th houses are occupying
their own or exaltation signs and in favourable houses
(Eg. as that of friends), then also the native is expected
to encounter hidden treasure or unexpected wealth.
If 2nd lord is powerful and is associated with or aspected by 7th lord or the karaka for the 7th
house, the native shall get wealth through his wife. If 9th lord is in the 7th house and
Bhagyakaraka Jupiter is aspected by Venus, the native gets money and wealth through his
According to Sarvartha chinthamani
when the Lord of ascendant is posited in the 2nd house,
lord of 2nd is posited in the 11th house and lord of 11th
is posited in the ascendant, the native is expected to
(hidden treasure) in his life.
The above rule appears in Jataka Tatwa
dhanaviveka, sl.43) also. Also, as per sl.44,
occupancy of the Ascendant lord in 2nd or 9th house
indicates acquisition of a treasure and as per sl.50, if
2nd lord is posited in 8th house, the native shall find a
According to Jambu Maharishi Vakyam
14th poem, a native would acquire a treasure
underground if 9th house in his chart is occupied by
Jupiter, Venus or Mercury in its own or exaltation
sign. This is possible only in 8 cases viz., Jupiter in
Sagittarius for Aries Ascendant, Jupiter in Pisces for
Cancer Ascendant, Jupiter in Cancer for Scorpio
Ascendant, Venus in Pisces for Cancer Ascendant,
Venus in Taurus for Virgo Ascendant, Venus in Libra
for Aquarius Ascendant, Mercury in Gemini for of
Libra Ascendant and Mercury in Virgo for Capricorn
According to Jataka Naradeeyam,
if 11th lord
is in the 9th house and 9th lord is hemmed between
benefics with Mercury in Simhasanamsa, that native
gets a treasure of wealth.
As we know, the inheritance of parental/ancestral
property is a routine or general affair in the society,
which has been in vogue, right from times immemorial.
But, there are cases, where it does not happen
routinely, owing to different reasons such as
estrangements due to strained relationships, deserting
of parents by their children, etc. Most often, in such
cases only, Astrologers are approached for some clues
on the possibilities of inheritance. There are many
combinations indicated in different classics on
Astrology in this regard. The followings ones would
be very useful in dealing with such cases :
According to Jyothishaarnava Navaneetam
(sl.290&326), a native will enjoy paternal fortunes, if
a) Venus is conjoined with 9th lord b)Venus is posited
in 9th house c)Venus is posited in angle from the
Ascendant d) the lords of Ascendant and the 9th house
have exchanged houses e) the lords of Ascendant
and 9th house are in angles to the Ascendant.
It is said that if the 3rd, 6th, 9th & 12th houses from
Sun in a horoscope are very strong, then the native gets the yoga of inheriting fatherís property. Also, if
Moon is posited in 2nd, 5th, 8th or 11th house from Sun
in a horoscope, similar results are expected.
As per Koushika Jothida Chinthamani
If 2nd lord happens to be Jupiter and is conjoined with
Saturn in Sagittarius, the native would have the
chances of acquiring wealth from grandmother.
In Jataka Tatwa
(ch.3, Dhana viveka) the
following combinations are indicated :
1. If Lagna & 2nd lords are strong and occupying the
3rd house; aspected by or associated with male planets;
aspected by or associated with 3rd lord which is in a
Vaiseshikamsa, the native shall inherit his brotherís
property and wealth.(sl.48).
2. If 2nd lord is associated with or aspected by 4th
lord, the native shall get great wealth through his
mother. (sl 49).
3. If 2nd lord is associated with or aspected by 4th
lord and has also attained a Vaiseshikamsa, the native
shall get great wealth through relatives or
4. If 2nd lord is strong and is either associated with
or aspected by 5th lord and Jupiter, the native shall
acquire wealth through his son.(sl.52).
5. If the Ascendant lord is powerful and has attained
a Vaiseshikamsa, the native shall get wealth through
a noble son. (ssl.53).
6. If the Ascendant lord is powerful and is associated
with or aspected by 6th lord or Mars, the native shall
get wealth through his enemies. (sl.54).
7. If 2nd lord is powerful and is associated with or
aspected by 7th lord or the karaka for the 7th house,
the native shall get wealth through his wife. (sl.55).
8. If 2nd lord is powerful and is associated with or
aspected by 10th lord or its karaka, the native shall
inherit his fatherís wealth. (sl.56).
9. If Sun is posited in the 4th house, the native gets
wealth through his father.(sl.58).
According to Jataka Naradeeyam (tamil),
following combinations in a chart indicate the
possibilities of a native acquiring wealth through his
1. If 9th lord is hemmed between benefics and Bhagyakaraka Jupiter is either aspected by Mercury
or is conjoined with it in Shuba Shadvargas, then the
native would acquire fatherís property.
2. If 9th lord is conjoined with Mars and
Bhagyakaraka Jupiter is aspected by Venus or if both
are posited in angles to Saturn, the native gets brotherís
3. If 9th lord is in the 7th house and Bhagyakaraka
Jupiter is aspected by Venus, the native gets money
and wealth through his wife.
4. If 9th lord and Jupiter are conjoined in 5th house or
in vaiseshikamsas like Gopura, Airavatha, etc, the
native gets luck through his children.
5. If 9th lord is in 9th and is aspected by Sun or Moon
with Bhagyakaraka Jupiter posited in an angular house
from Moon, the native gets luck through his maternal
Gains through Lottery, Gambling & Speculations
The 6th and 11th houses and their lords have an important role in gambling. If these lords are
together occupying 11th house, the native wins in lottery and gambling; but the same combination
occurs in 12th house, it indicates loss in speculation. If the 6th lord is in 11th with 9th lord, the
native owns much wealth through lottery or gambling.
As already mentioned, 5th house represents
entertainment and speculation. Therefore, the 5th
house and its lord are the main significators for gains
in lotteries, speculations, races and gambling. The
houses 2nd (ruling wealth in general), 8th (signifying
gains through dowry, inheritance, wills, adoption,
awards, prizes, secret wealth etc.) and 11th (income
and fulfillment) and their lords are the supporting ones
for such gains. In addition to favourable interlinks
among these houses and their lords, Ascendant (self)
and 7th house (associate/ partner) & their lords along
with Mercury (intelligence) must also be strong and
favourable and well inter-connected in the chart for
such sudden gains. The following combinations are
noteworthy in this regard :
Lords of 2nd and 5th, 2nd and 11th, 5th and 11th or
2nd and 8th houses exchanging signs.
Mercury in 11th house in own sign conjoined with
2nd, 5th, 8th & 11th lords occupying their own
5th and 11th lords conjoined in 5th house along with
either Rahu or Ketu.
2nd and 11th lords conjoined in 5th house and aspected by with benefics.
Lonely Jupiter in 5th or 8th in own or exaltation
sign would give unexpected gains.
5th and 8th lords exchanging houses and
Lagna lord being in good aspect with both of them or
benefics occupying 5th and 8th houses.
Inter-connection between 2nd and 8th lords
would give unexpected gains.
All planets occupying 1,2,3,7,8,10 &11 houses and
not more than two planets conjoined together in the
A strong and powerful Sun occupying an upachaya
house from Moon.
Jupiter and Moon conjoined in 2nd, 4th, 5th, 9th or
11th house in a chart.
5ht lord in 5th house along with Rahu or Ketu.
Venus as 5th lord combining with 11th lord in 5th
or 11th house.
Lords of 2nd, 5th and 11th houses conjoined in an
angle or trine.
Besides the above, the following points are to be kept
in mind, while assessing the acquisition of unexpected
money through Gambling, race, lottery, speculations
in stocks & shares, etc :
Generally, 2nd, 5th, 8th, 11th houses have to be strong
and well inter-connected in a chart. Also, it is
necessary that they are tenanted by the planets in
debilitation which are simultaneously afflicted by
malefics like Mars, Saturn, Rahu or Ketu because
such combinations impel the native to indulge in the
activities like gambling, racing, bribe, extortion, etc.
The debilitation and affliction of these house lords
also would cause a similar effect.
The 6th and 11th houses and their lords have an
important role in gambling. If these lords are together
occupying 11th house, the native wins in lottery and
gambling; but the same combination occurs in 12th
house, it indicates loss in speculation. If the 6th lord is
in 11th with 9th lord, the native owns much wealth
through lottery or gambling.
Strong combination of Saturn and Rahu favours
gambling especially in indoor games. If the 6th & 11th lords and Saturn are in the 11th house, the native wins
in dice or playing cards through underhand tricks and
by puzzling his opponents.
Mercury as 5th lord occupying 6th house causes
loss in speculations. If the 5th lord Venus is in the 12th
house with 6th lord the native will lose in gambling
being addicted to the same. If there are many malefic
planets in 12th house the native should not invest
money in gambling or lottery as he will always lose.
Venus and Rahu indicate Horse-racing.
If Venus, as the 5th lord is occupying the 11th house
along with 6th lord, the native may win huge sums of
money in Horse Racing; but in 12th house, it gives
heavy loss in Horse Racing. Venus in 11th in own
house conjoined with 6th lord also indicates gains
through Horse Racing. There appears to be some
link to Horse Racing with the sign Sagittarius. If 5th,
9th and 11th lords are conjoined with Rahu in 11th house,
it indicates gain through Horse Racing. For gains in
races, a strong 5th lord in benefic combination with
Sun, Moon and Venus is also very supportive.
Moon is posited in 5th house and aspected by
Venus, indicates sudden gain from lottery.
If the 5th lord Venus is in the 12th house with 6th
lord the native will lose in gambling being addicted to
the same. If there are many malefic planets placed in
12th house the native should not invest money in
gambling or lottery as he will always lose.
According to Saravali,
if Venus and Jupiter are
conjoined in 10th house with the Ascendant lord being
weak and Saturn occupying its exaltation sign, the
native will be a gambler and wealthy as well.
Speculation in stocks and shares :
dispositions are helpful for gains by speculations
1) strong Jupiter connected with 2nd and 5th houses
2) 2nd, 5th& 11th houses and their lords well-placed
and well aspected
3) 2nd lord exalted in 5th along with Lagna lord
4)11th lord and Jupiter aspecting 5th house and 5th lord aspecting Lagna
5) Mutual aspect between 5th and 11th lords
6) 2nd lord conjoined with 5th lord in 11th house
7) Moon and Mercury in 11th house with 6th lord
indicates money through share market
8) Mercury being 5th lord occupying 6th house causes
loss in speculations.
Unexpected money through bribe/graft
Winning competitions, awards & honours
It is observed that for acquisition of Black money in
trade, gains from bribes and palm-greasing, by theft,
etc, apart from the presence of at least a few yogas
for acquiring sudden wealth as mentioned above,
another important condition also needs to be
essentially satisfied in a chart. That is, the malefic
planets like Mars, Saturn, Rahu or Ketu seriously
afflict and spoil the Ascendant, 5th & 8th houses
together with their lords. Usually, these malefics are
stronger than the benefics in the chart.
When there are benefic yogas from the Ascendant,
10th and 11th houses and their lords with the
involvement of Jupiter who is the significator for
respect (Gowravam), the native gets name, fame,
gains in prizes, awards, etc. But, winning in a
competition would be with the support of the additional
influence of 5th, 6th, 9th house/lords when the
respective houses/their lords ruling the concerned field
of excellence are strong and are getting favourably
associated with these parameters. For example, 3rd
house for authors/writers, 5th house for performing
Timing the gains
Astrologically, it would be possible to forecast the
probable time of unexpected gains in wealth and
money by a native. Although they can be generally
expected during the Dasa/ Bhukti periods of the
concerned Planets indicating such possibilities, better
accuracy can be obtained in this area, by examining
properly the following additional features in a chart :
i) Part of Fortune (Pars Fortunae):
The following dispositions are helpful for gains by speculation in stocks and shares
1) strong Jupiter connected with 2nd and 5th houses
2) 2nd, 5th& 11th houses and their lords well-placed and well aspected
3) 2nd lord exalted in 5th along with Lagna lord
4)11th lord and Jupiter aspecting 5th house and 5th lord aspecting Lagna
5) Mutual aspect between 5th and 11th lords
6) 2nd lord conjoined with 5th lord in 11th house
7) Moon and Mercury in 11th house with 6th lord indicates money through share market
8) Mercury being 5th lord occupying 6th house causes loss in speculations.
It is a zodiacal
point calculated by adding the longitudes of the
Ascendant and Moon and subtracting from the sum
the longitude of Sun in a chart. According to Llewellyn
one of the pioneers in Western Astrology,
the Part of Fortune represents worldly success as
indicated by the house and sign it occupies in a nativity
i.e., it benefits the house in which it is located at birth
by causing gains in things ruled by such house subject
to the quality of influences (aspects and conjunctions)
it receives. In transit also, passing over or aspect of
planets (both benefics and malefics) causes gains
through the significations of the associated houses
and signs. For example, Part of Fortune in 3rd house
may create profitable journeys, gains through
intellectual affairs (especially through communication/
writing), by means of amiable and honest kindred,
etc. Thus, by examining the influences on the Part of
Fortune in natal chart and combining it with the Dasa/
transit influences, it would be possible to forecast the
gains, their sources, etc. Readers are requested to
refer to the book A to z Horoscope maker and
by the above author (or any other standard
book on Western Astrology) for further details.
ii) Hora (D2) Chart :
Hora chart is generally used
for assessing the wealth, riches, prosperity, etc of a
native. Occupancy of natural malefics in Sunís Hora
and benefics in Moonís Hora is said to be favourable
which makes the native generally wealthy and rich.
As such, gains may be expected from these planets
which are favourably posited in the Hora chart during
their Dasa/Bhukti periods. Also, if the D-1 lagna falls
in Moonís Hora, the native earns wealth in a land far
away from the place of birth. He would be prosperous
during childhood but would face poverty or shortage
of funds during old age. The Hora chart can also be used for timing of gains by combining the Dasa and
transit influences. When the planets favourably placed
in the Hora chart influence in transit the houses
indicating gains in the natal chart during favourable
Dasa/Bhukti, gains to the native are expected.
iii) Sahams :
Sahams are sensitive points arrived at
by the manipulation of longitudes of planets, the
Ascendant and other houses concerned. They signify
an important event in respect of a specific area of
life during a particular year under consideration. More
than 35 Sahams are employed in Annual horoscopy
for predicting different areas of life. Out of these,
only three sahams
are very good pointers of gains in
wealth and money. They are : Dhana or Artha
pertaining to the wealth, Bhagya or Punya
indicating oneís luck (it is same as the Part of
Fortune) and Laba Saham
indicating the gains. These Sahams
in Annual horoscopy could also be used
effectively for counter checking the possibilities of
acquiring unexpected gains in wealth and money
specifically during a particular year. Readers are
requested to refer to any standard text book on Annual
Horoscopy for further details on the calculation and
usage of these Sahams.
Thus, it could be seen from the above discussion that
it is possible to forecast with a fair amount of accuracy
even gains, windfalls and acquisition of unexpected
wealth and money using one's horoscope. Now, let
us discuss a few Case-studies.
Case-study 1 :
This is the horoscope of a Male. The following key points
are to be noted :
The Ascendant is Aries and its lord Mars (who is
also the 8th lord) is occupying 11th house along with 5th
The 11th and 5th lords have exchanged houses while
Rahu and Ketu are occupying 5th and 11th houses
Mars and retrograde Saturn aspect 2nd house
The above combinations create a strong interlink
among the houses 2,5,8&11 and their lords in the
horoscope along the 5/11 axis. This interlink is created
by all the three malefic planets viz., Mars, Saturn and
Sun which is directly influenced by the remaining two
malefic i.e., Rahu and Ketu.
The 3rd & 6th lord Mercury is posited in the junction
of signs falling in 11th & 12th houses and is aspected by
retrograde 9th & 12th lord Jupiter. 4th lord Moon and 12th
lord Jupiter have exchanged their signs and also, Jupiter
Besides, 9th & 12th lord Jupiter is retrograde in 4th
house in Cancer (and works as if in debilitation) and
aspects Venus (2nd & 7th lord) which is occupying the
As already mentioned, these inter-connections among
the houses 2,5,8&11 and their lords and the direct adverse
influences of Rahu and Ketu on these houses and their
lords along with the aspect of 9th lord on the 6th lord,
would impel the native to indulge in the activities like
gambling, racing, etc.
This native has confessed to have lost interest in pursuing
any profession, right from the time of commencement
of his Ketu Dasa during August 2011 and has taken to
online playing of cards daily for earning his income for
day-to-day living itself when Rahu sub-period had
commenced during July 2014 and is presently continuing
the same, despite the fact that he is not able to earn
money as expected by him and is only just managing to
make both the ends meet, with whatever is earned. As
could be seen from his birth chart, due to the simultaneous aspect of Saturn and Mars on the 2nd house with Ketu
afflicting the 11th house and Rahu afflicting the 11th lord
in 5th house, despite an irregular and insufficient flow of
money through online gambling of cards, the native is
more inclined to continue the same further for his
livelihood. But, the conjunction of Mercury with Moon
and aspect of Jupiter on them have initiated a change in
his mind set when Mercury sub period commenced
during August 2017 as a result of which he had
approached the author during the second week of
September 2017 for suggestions for addressing the issues
faced by him.
Case-study 2 :
This is the horoscope of an IPS officer. The author was
consulted through a mutual friend during June 2005 in
Rahu Dasa and Venus Bhukthi, regarding his career, on
the grounds that he was getting only unimportant or
difficult postings and not his choices. An examination of
the combinations prevalent in the chart revealed the
Ascendant is Pisces. Its lord Jupiter (also 10th lord)
is posited in the 3rd house in an enemyís sign and is
exchanging sign with 3rd lord Venus (also 8th lord), which
is afflicting the Ascendant in conjunction with 6th lord
Sun. 2nd & 9th lord Mars posited in 9th house in own
house aspects Jupiter. Also, Jupiter is occupying an
angular house (10th) from Moon, with Moon as the lord
of the 5th occupying the 6th house from the Ascendant.
These combinations create Dharma-karmadhipatya
Gajakesari yoga, etc in the chart. But, the
formation of these yogas with the influence of 3rd & 6th
houses/lords causes yogabhanga
10th house is tenanted by Rahu and it receives the
aspect of retrograde Saturn (11th &12th lord) from 8th
house. 4th house is afflicted by Ketu and the aspect of
Mars on it is not favourable. Thus, 4th (happiness) and
10th (profession) houses are afflicted in the chart.
Saturn (lord of 11th & 12th houses) is occupying the
8th house in its exaltation sign Libra; but, it is retrograde
there (hence, works like in debilitation) and aspects the
2nd, 5th and 10th houses. Ketu aspects Saturn (5th aspect).
This single planet Saturn creates an adverse interlink among the houses 2,5,8,10,11&12 in the chart. Also, it
prominently afflicts 10th, 2nd, 5th & 8th houses in the chart.
Thus, as already pointed out, the afflictions to Ascendant,
10th, 2nd, 5th & 8th houses in the chart indicate a strong
tendency in the native to indulge in lowly ways and means
of earning secret income through graft/bribe, etc, which
would result in bringing him disrepute in his profession
due to which he was perhaps neither chosen for key
posts nor allotted his choices in postings which made
Case-study 3 :
This is the horoscope of a Male, who suddenly got his
share of his fatherís property in partition of assets, in
spite of his estrangement with his parents and having a
strained relationship with them for nearly 2 decades.
The following combinations are noteworthy in this chart :
2nd lord Saturn being the karaka for 10th house is
strongly posited in angles to both the Ascendant and
Moon and is conjoined with 8th lord Moon. Both Moon and Saturn are aspecting 4th house signifying immovable
According to Jataka Tatwa
(ch.3, Dhana viveka,
sl.56), if 2nd lord is powerful and is associated with
or aspected by 10th lord or its karaka, the native
