Today, 12th house lord sitting in 6th house.
So first of all, let's see what 6th house and 12th house represent -
6th house is 1st of Dushthana Houses (houses # 6, 8 and 12) and 2nd of Upachaya Houses (houses # 3, 6, 10 & 11). 6th house represents things like diseases, debts, obstacles, enemies, disputes, competitions, litigations, under privileged people, pets, daily routine life, colleagues at work place etc. One thing to remember here is that it is one of Upachaya Houses, i.e. House # 3, 6, 10 & 11. Upachaya Houses improve with time. It means any planet in these houses improves in results with age and real good result is seen from a person's 30s. Also, all the malefic planets provide very good results in Upachaya Houses but results may be seen in 30s.
12th house is house of Losses, Expenses, Isolated Places, Spirituality, Foreign Lands, Foreign Companies, Imagination, Sub-Concious Mind, Charity, Donation, Asylums, Jails, Hospitals, Hidden Talent and Secrets of Other World etc.
One thing to always keep in mind with 12th house is that it basically remains the house of losses. So, whichever planet goes in 12th house, even exalted, is in the bucket of losses. Now, to gain out of any such planet, you need to put double effort in things related with that planet.
Now, what does it mean to have 12th house lord sitting in 6th house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 12th house of your horoscope is sitting in the 6th house of horoscope.
Now, what is the impact of having 12th house lord sitting in 6th house?
Its most generic interpretation these days is someone in service in Foreign Lands or MNCs as 12th house is Foreign Lands/MNCs and 6th house is Service/Jobs. 2nd prominent indication it gives is for someone in Health Care field as 12th house is Hospitals and 6th house is Diseases. It also shows someone who is working in legal team of MNCs as 6th house also deals with Litigation. This position also creates a Vipreet Raj Yoga (http://astrosaxena.com/vipreetraj) as a dushthana lord is sitting in another dushthana house. With malefic planets in wrong dignity, it causes debts, losses and ill-health. So, this can be a tricky combination if not understood properly as it can bring obstacles and losses if person is not ready to work as per the indications of this placement.
Now, results may be different due to aspect, conjunctions of other planets or the planet being Retrograde or Combust. Moreover, now we also need to check the strength of 6th house lord as 12th house lord is going in 6th house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 12th house Lord in 6th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Virgo Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 12th house with Leo sign and sits in the 6th house in the sign of Aquarius. It clearly shows someone in an authoritative position in Foreign Company or MNCs as Sun represents Career and Authority. It also shows that Father may be in similar work. Life of Father may be obstacles filled and person may have restricted relation with Father as Sun is in enemy sign. It also shows that person gets involved in unnecessary ego battles with his colleagues at work and that leads to disputes and fights at work. So, person may try to work on it for better relations at work.
Moon - So it is Leo Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 12th house with Cancer sign and sits in 6th house in Capricorn. As Moon is about nourishing and taking care of people, it certainly shows someone who wants to serve the ill and under-privileged people. As Moon is in Saturn ruled sign, now the relation with Mother becomes a restricted one. Mother may be a strict disciplinarian, which makes relation with mother extremely hard. As Moon also likes to serve, this again shows someone who is in service in Foreign Lands or MNCs. Here, mind feels that it has to see great obstacles,
Mars - Mars can be 12th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Taurus Ascendant - So if it is Taurus Ascendant, Mars rules 12th & 7th house and sits in 6th house in Libra sign. As Mars is a natural fighter and 6th house is enemies, this position shows a natural fighter or someone who wants to compete with others. So, doors of Legal Profession and Sports Person opens here. Another field it opens is that of Medicine as Mars also represents Doctor and 6th house is diseases. At the same time, person may try to dominate others at work place.
Sagittarius Ascendant - Now if it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Mars rules 5th & 12th house and sits in 6th house in Taurus sign. This is more prominent one towards Sports Person as Mars also rules 5th house of Sports. It shows someone who wants to dominate and compete his competitors. It also shows someone who gets into disputes as & when he gets into love matters. It also shows that getting education is hard because of obstacles or debts. As 12th house is of Jails, it can show a Policeman or Criminal both, moving between Jail to Disputes.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 12th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, Mercury rules 12th & 3rd houses and sits in 6th house in Sagittarius. This shows someone who is into collection of information of Spiritual, Religious and Higher Education matters. As Mercury also rules the 3rd house and sits in 6th house, it shows someone in counselling or communications related work and services. They may counsel people on religious or spiritual grounds and guide them to remove their obstacles. As Sagittarius is also sign of Law, it also shows someone in service of Legal Counselling,
Libra Ascendant - If it is Libra Ascendant, then Mercury rules 9th and 12th house and sits in 6th house in Pisces, where it is debilitated. Out of all planetary debilitation, I am least worried for Mercury debilitation. This is more prominent case for someone being a religious, spiritual counselor or counselor in field of higher knowledge. With their counselling, they try to help people in their disputes and obstacles in life. This also shows a very good author in matters of religion, philosophy and spirituality, whose writing helps people to resolve their disputes.
Venus - Venus also can be 12th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, Venus rules 12th & 5th house and sits in 6th house in Scorpio sign. As Venus is all about Service & Devotions, this again shows someone in service of Foreign Companies. But this also shows someone who serves animals like a Veterinary Doctor. They also want to help under-privileged people and serve people living in turmoil. On personal front, this is a troublesome placement for love life. Venus in Scorpio always brings sudden events and major up/downs in love life. Also, Venus is in its marana karaka position, which will ensure that person will go through 2-3 major break-ups in life before settling in.
Scorpio Ascendant - If it is Scorpio Ascendant, Venus rules 7th & 12th house and sits in 6th house in Aries. Although, Venus is still in its marana karaka position, but things will be little better as Aries energy is not as disruptive as Scorpio. Profession-wise, it will be same field like serving under-privileged people or ill people. They may also be in love with serving pets. Relation wise, as Venus is still in its marana karaka position, disputes will occur as person will try to assert his individuality, specially in matters of wealth. Relationships may still be tough to manage.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 12th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Jupiter rules 12th & 3rd house and sits in 6th house in Gemini Sign. This shows a counselor, more appropriately a Lawyer as Jupiter represents Law and Gemini is sign of Communications. As Jupiter also rules the 3rd house of Counselling, it makes very evident that person will be a counselor. At times, it can be a religious or spiritual counselor. As Jupiter represents Wealth and Expansion, it expands the wealth of person through legal matters. It also shows someone as Lawyer in Foreign Lands.
Aries Ascendant - If it is Aries Ascendant, Jupiter rules 9th & 12th house and sits in 6th house in Virgo. This shows almost similar results as Jupiter is in sign of Virgo, which itself is sign of Conflicts and Disputes. This makes a more prominent position for lawyer as Jupiter also rules the 9th house of Law. Alternatively, it can make someone interested in Medicine too as Jupiter represents Biology too and 6th house & Virgo has same energy of Health Care and Healing.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 12th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Aquarius/Capricorn) as 12th house lord, Saturn in 6th house (for Pisces/Aquarius Ascendants respectively) shows a person who is in Health-Care field or Law field. As Saturn itself represents illness and 6th house is diseases too, Saturn in 6th house normally creates a doctor. Another Career it can give is Lawyer if it gets connected with 1st house along with 6th house. This can even make a person a Judge too. Saturn in 6th house is one of best placement for Saturn as it impacts all the Dushthana Houses, i.e. 6th, 8th and 12th house and hence limits the results of these houses. For Pisces Ascendant, Saturn rules 12th house with Aquarius sign, so it gives a Career in Large Organizations with routine repetitive jobs.
Rahu - If Rahu is 12th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 6th house in Leo then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Leo in 6th house will transform Rahu as Sun as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. At the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Leo in 6th house shows someone in service or job with Large Organisation or Foreign Companies. It may also give job in Foreign Lands or Weird/Unusual Workplace. As 6th house relates to illnesses too, person may be in medical field or whenever he gets any illness, it is weird or unusual one. It also shows someone who wants extreme authority at work place, hence it gives a habit of show-off.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 12th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 6th house in Taurus then 1st of all we need to make sure of Mars' position as it is the main ruler. As Ketu isolates/separates a person from the things related to the house Ketu is sitting, here it separates person from the concept of as to where he is serving. It means these people are blind as to where they are working, if they are getting enough return/salary/bonus for their work. They just want to mechanically work without any thought of getting into office politics and other things. Hence, it so happens that they may not get their deserving dues in jobs. It also separates them from concepts of Competition. They are the last people who want to get into any dispute. They live a healthy life, as they are also separated from Diseases. As Ketu is in Taurus, they are last people to hoard wealth and assets. They are not money driven.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
