Today, 4th house lord sitting in 6th house.
So first of all, let's see what 4th house & 6th house represent -
4th house represents your home, home environment, homeland, mother, nourishment, childhood friends, peace of mind, conveniences, intuition etc.
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 6th house 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.
Now, what does it mean to have 4th house lord sitting in 6th house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 4th house of your horoscope is sitting in the 6th house of horoscope.
Now, what is the impact of having 4th house lord sitting in 6th house?
Its generic interpretation is that this person's peace of mind and convenience come only when he deals with obstacles and conflicts of his and others' life. It also shows that native had to deal with lots of obstacles in order to get home or other conveniences of life. It also shows that mother's life was full of obstacles.
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 4th 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 4th house Lord in 6th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Taurus Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 4th house with Leo sign and sits in the 6th house in the sign of Libra, where it is debilitated. If Sun is nearby to its actual debilitation degree, then it shows a very turbulent relation with father. We can say Father is either non-existent in life or he is present as an enemy or obstacle. It also shows that native's parents suffer from some major diseases. It also shows that whenever native gets into disputes and enemies, he has to see defeat and that results in lack of self-confidence in person's life. But a conjunction or aspect from a benefic planet can change the situation completely.
Moon - So it is Aries Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 4th house with Cancer sign and sits in 6th house in Virgo. It shows that native's mother was in healing/medical services. She was very much a perfectionist. She used to criticize native a lot for every small or big mistake. This criticism can go to either extreme. Person can use criticism constructively or he can think that my mother is my biggest enemy who sees only wrong things in me. Native's mind is very much involved in serving others, so this position not only shows someone happy working in job setup but also willing to serve under privileged and unhealthy people. So, nursing also becomes a career here.
Mars - Mars can be 4th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Capricorn Ascendant - So if it is Capricorn Ascendant, Mars rules 4th & 11th house and sits in 6th house in Gemini sign. It shows argument, dominance struggle and possible litigation with mother or in house property matters. It also shows that house property is being put on debt. It also shows someone who deals in property matters regularly as an real estate agent as they need to deal with property and debts at same time. This can also make someone a lawyer.
Leo Ascendant - Now if it is Leo Ascendant, Mars rules 4th & 9th house and sits in 6th house in Capricorn sign, where it is exalted. This position can give indication of multiple professions related with Mars. It opens the doors of being A Lawyer, A Doctor, A Soldier, A Sports Person. Final profession can be judged only after seeing karakas and dashas. Here, person has transformative relation with mother. As much as he wants to protect her or home, he ends up in having arguments and disputes. Mother is also a strong headed individual.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 4th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Pisces Ascendant - If it is Pisces Ascendant, Mercury rules 4th & 7th houses and sits in 6th house in Leo. This shows someone who is either working in job setup in Govt or Private sector where communications are going to be huge part or they are working as an activist to serve and raise the voice of under privileged and poor people. These people can be seen as those RTI Activists or PIL Litigants who continuously fight against administration and governments for the poor and under-privileged people. They receive this training from their mother who herself may be an activist.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, then Mercury rules 4th & 1st house and sits in 6th house in Scorpio. Again, relations with Mother is going to be turbulent and transformative as Scorpio sign is getting involved. I won't be surprised if this person ends up as an astrologer because Mercury, Scorpio and 4th house all indicates towards Astrology and Intuition. Otherwise also, this person will be in a work which is communication and counselling based.
Venus - Venus also can be 4th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Aquarius Ascendant - If it is Aquarius Ascendant, Venus rules 4th & 9th house and sits in 6th house in Cancer sign. As Venus dignity is not great, it shows that person gets into relationship or marries someone and that relation ends up into dispute. Even normal communication with females in daily life involves disputes and conflicts. It shows native's wife is in healing field. But one should be careful with relations here, as there is continuous chance of some or other dispute coming up.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, Venus rules 4th & 11th house and sits in 6th house in Sagittarius. This position of Venus is almost similar to earlier one as here also Venus is in enemy sign. So, we can expect almost similar results here. Additionally, these people will always be inclined towards higher learning. In partner, they won't look for beauty but brains. At the same time, these natives should also be careful in relations.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 4th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Virgo Ascendant - If it is Virgo Ascendant, Jupiter rules 4th & 7th house and sits in 6th house in Aquarius Sign. This shows someone working as guide/teacher/guru to poor/under-privileged people. They serve the people with their wisdom and motivate people to work for some higher cause. Else they can be seen working in large organizations. Mother for them is their religious Guru and they impart the same wisdom to others which they receive from mother.
Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Jupiter rules 4th & 1st house and sits in 6th house in Taurus. This shows a great possibility of wealth from 6th house and Jupiter related things. Means these people will work as guide and Guru for others which will give them great amount of wealth. As Jupiter expands everything, in Taurus it will expand the wealth through 6th house related things. They can gain through teaching and guiding others.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 4th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 4th house lord, Saturn in 6th house (for Libra/Scorpio Ascendants respectively) shows that person may not have very good relation with mother. Mother was like a very strict teacher for them and that lead to disputes between them. This position also shows that property is going into debt or disputes. For Scorpio Ascendants, Saturn will be in Aries, which is its sign of debilitation, shows person will get into dispute & litigation and lose his peace of mind. This position can be good for Legal or Medical field. Person will be natural healer. Saturn in 6th house is always a good position for Medical Profession as it simultaneously impacts all the Dushthana houses like 6th, 8th and 12th, but being debilitated for Scorpio Ascendant may bring additional misery. It can give bone related diseases.
Rahu - If Rahu is 4th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 6th house in Aries then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Aries in 6th house will transform Rahu as Mars as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. So, it will become much like Mars in 6th house as discussed above.This shows a person who is headstrong when he gets into any dispute or obstacle. It shows someone in medical field, a surgeon. It can make a person Veterinarian as 6th house is house of animals too. This person is highly action oriented. This person can also lose his cool easily and get into violence during disputes.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 4th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 6th house in Capricorn 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 actually separates person from the concept 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. They can be working with large organisations or Government. They are billions of light years away from the concept of getting into disputes. .
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
