Next in the Ascendant Analysis is 6/8
relationship. It means X person’s ascendant is 6th to Y person’s ascendant,
hence Y person’s ascendant is 8th to X person’s ascendant. It is like a
relationship between Aries-Virgo people or Scorpio-Gemini people.
Now, what will be the results?
1. 1st of all, first person is activating
6th house of other person and other person is activating 8th house of first
person after they get into a relation. Now, what are these houses?
2. 6th house is house of conflicts,
disputes, litigation, debts and diseases etc. 8th house is the house of major
changes, ups/downs, instability and sudden events etc.
3. Among all relationship ascendant
combination, this is the one which is the most serious and capital NO. Reason
is simple that one person is bringing conflicts and disputes in relationship
and other person is bringing instability in relationship. So, this relationship
will either have conflicts or they will have continuous changes.
4. As you want some stability in life, it is
advised to avoid this 6/8 synastry as these relations may never get
5. This relation can also bring the
possibility of health issues, accidents, surgeries and debts etc for partners.
Hence, it should remain in the bucket of avoidable relations.
6. Then there are some 6/8 ascendants like
Sagittarius/Cancer or Taurus/Sagittarius which are ruled by benefic planets.
For these people, intensity of conflicts or changes may be lesser but still
they will have conflicts and instability in relationship. There are some ascendants
in 6/8 relation for which ascendant lords are enemies and malefic planets.
There it must be totally avoided.
7. Only way, this relation may work is
through a long distance relationship. If they are staying together then they
are bound to invite some conflicts to each other. Another way is always
awareness. If both partners are aware that these are the limitations in their
chart and they are supposed to work within such limitations, then they can
avoid many small conflicts.
8. But this is where the overall chart
analysis is also important. Like, being a Scorpio ascendant, I was always
pleasantly surprised that most of my long time friends are either Gemini
ascendant or Gemini Moon Sign. I could never understand why because
Gemini/Scorpio are in 6/8 relation and their lords Mercury & Mars
respectively are great enemies, till one day a friend of mine told that it is
because Gemini falls into my 8th house where I have a Shubh Kartari Yoga
happening between exalted Moon and exalted Jupiter. So, in between those 2
exalted planets, Gemini people find peace in my company. That’s why, whole
chart needs to be analysed thoroughly.
Let’s check it ascendant-wise as ascendant
lords can change the equation little bit here –
a. For Aries-Virgo, Gemini-Scorpio,
Leo-Capricorn & Aquarius-Cancer ascendants, this relation is strictly
avoidable as not only it is 6/8 relation but the ascendant lords for these
ascendants are great enemies to each other. These people can have continuous
conflicts or instability in relation.
b. For Virgo-Aquarius and Capricorn-Gemini
ascendants, ascendant lords (Saturn-Mercury) are mutual friends but presence of
heavy Saturnian energy is enough to bring stress in their relationship.
c. For Cancer-Sagittarius and Pisces-Leo
ascendants, this relation may still work with some conditions as stated above,
because ascendant lords Moon-Jupiter and Jupiter-Sun are best friends.
Relationship can still have its instability but it might sustain due to
friendship and benefic nature of lords. But it is certainly not advisable
d. For Libra-Pisces and Sagittarius-Taurus
ascendants, although the ascendant lords (Venus & Jupiter) are benefic
planets by nature but they are mutual enemies. So, these ascendants will still
have some instabilities and conflicts.
e. I think the best bet here will be
Taurus-Libra and Scorpio-Aries ascendants in relation as the ascendant lord
here is same planet for both ascendants, i.e. Venus and Mars respectively. Even
in them, Taurus-Libra is better bet as the lord Venus is benefic planet and
karaka of relationship.
f. Still, first advice for this 6/8 relation
is serious and capital NO.
Obviously, we need to look at whole chart of
both persons involved and check their dashas to get the complete idea. From
this analysis, we can only understand that if one sign or one planet can cause
issues in relationship then how many issues can be seen through 12 signs and 9
planets. This is my intention behind writing this series to make people aware
that there is no ideal relation, no ideal marriage and no perfect partner.
