FAMILY Deity is the god worshipped by our ancesters and passed on to generations. When joint-families were in existance, in villages, the family members used to gather at their respective Family Deity temple, for praying and seeking permission to do auspiciuous functions in the family. Now the concept of joint-family is missing in large. Now nobody is interested to visit the native village and the family fuctions in the temples of Family Deity also have become rare. The modern generation people do not know who is their family Deity.
Sri Adi Sankaracharya has grouped the worship of Gods into Six Groups known as Shanmatha Siddhantha.
1. Saivam, (Lord Siva in Linga or Moorthy posture)
2. Vaishnavam, (Lord Vishnu and other Avataras)
3. Saktham, (worship of Shakti / Kali.)
4. Ganapathyam, (worship of Lord Ganapathy)
5. Koumaram, (Lord Karthikeya)
6. Souram (worship of Sun god)

Family Deity only will help you in your hardships. Without pleasing the Family Deity, no other deities will come forward to help you.
The 5th house is Gemini with no planets, aspected by
Mars and Jupiter, along with Moon. Mars aspects
the Ascendent, Jupiter and Moon. 5th lord Mercury
is with Venus, Saturn & Ketu, Except Rahu and
Sun, all other planets are related to the 5th house in
some way or other. Moon and Venus reflect women
deities. Jupiter and Mars reflect male deities like
Shiva, Karthikeya and a god with weapon. The place
of Family Deity has to be on a plain surface, near the
hills and a streem of water should also be flowing
nearby. The native declared his Family Deity as

The native is from Hyderabad (Telengana) He is a Srivaishnava.
5th house is Aries, the house of Mars, with Moon, Venus, and Rahu, aspected by Ketu. Mars is with Sun in Taurus. Venus and Mars are in Parivarthana (exchange of houses). Saturn from Pisces (Watery place) aspects Mars, the 5th lord. Aries denotes a hill place. Moon & Venus represent female deity, with Rahu & Ketu representing a Snake. Saturn from Watery sign denotes a perennial water-body nearby. Hence the Family Deity has been decoded as Lord Narasimha, with Goddess Lakshmi, under the hood of Adi Sesha (Nag). In the Family Deity
temple, there has to be another shrine of Goddess Lakshmi separately; a flowing river is also indicated. The native then revealed about the temple of Panakala Lakshminarasimha Swamy, situated on a small hill in Mangalagiri, near Vijayawada, where River Krishna is flowing.
The native is from Chennai. He belongs to Srivaishnava family. His parents approached me for knowing their Family Deity, very recently.
For Pisces Ascendant, 5th house is Cancer, a Watery
sign, with Mars & Rahu. The 5th lord, Moon, is
posited in its own star in Taurus. The 5th house is
aspected by Ketu. Mars, for Srivaishnavas, denotes
Lord Narasimha with Goddess Lakshmi, near a live
river or a Tank or Sea, I have predicted Lord
Lakshminarasimha, with Adi Sesha. Possibilities are
there for temples for Lord Shiva, Shakti and the loacal
deity of Lord Muneeswarar.
