Badhakesh Planets.

Badhakesh Planets.

In Vedic Astrology, for every ascendant there is a planet which works as a Badhakesh Planet, means a planet which brings obstacles in achievement of things related with the house that planet rules. But the obstacles and their impacts always depend on the dignity of Badhakesh Planet.

So, first of all let's see what are the Badhakesh Planets for every Ascendant. First, let's divide Ascendants into Movable, Fixed and Dual Sign Ascendants. These are -

Movable Ascendants are: Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.
Fixed Ascendant are: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.
Dual Ascendants are: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces.

Now, for every movable sign ascendant, Badhakesh Planet will be 11th house lord.

For every fixed sign ascendant, Badhakesh Planet will be 9th house lord.

For every dual sign ascendant, Badhakesh Planet will be 7th house lord.

So, Badhakesh Planet for every ascendant will be as follows -

Aries - Aquarius Sign (11th house) - Saturn.
Taurus - Capricorn Sign (9th house) - Saturn.
Gemini - Sagittarius Sign (7th house) - Jupiter.
Cancer - Taurus Sign (11th house) - Venus.
Leo - Aries Sign (9th house) - Mars.
Virgo - Pisces Sign (7th house) - Jupiter.
Libra - Leo Sign (11th house) - Sun.
Scorpio - Cancer Sign (9th house) - Moon.
Sagittarius - Gemini Sign (7th house) - Mercury.
Capricorn - Scorpio Sign (11th house) - Mars.
Aquarius - Libra Sign (9th house) - Venus.
Pisces - Virgo Sign (7th house) - Mercury.

So, now if Badhakesh Planet is positioned in bad dignity (sign wise, conjunction wise or aspect wise) and sitting in one of the Dushtana Houses (house # 6, 8, 12) or in Maraka Houses (House # 2 & 7), then it will be a real obstacle. Person will find that things related with the planet or house involved are hard to achieve in its Mahadasha. For Ex, if 9th house lord as Badhakesh Planet for all fixed signs is not well placed, it shows that person's higher education will be of no use for him in earning money. He will earn from some other altogether different source. But if it is well placed, like for Scorpio, 9th house lord Moon is in 7th house then it is exalted, then whatever obstacles come in way, in the end they all will be beneficial, as Badhakesh is a Natural Benefic Planet and Exalted.

Again, whole chart needs to be analysed and all the details need to be seen. One Badhakesh Position may be important but not all important.

Hope this helps. Thanks,

  • Hello Sir, Believe you can remember me as well guided earlier through your predictions. It is absolutely true that Badhakesh sitting in 6th House lead a person to work in different field other than whichever education he has attained. In my case the 1st condition is true. Secondly badhak is also sitting in conjunction with the 6th lord in 6th house, which is also Marakesh for the Ascendant. In other principle the 6th lord in 6th is a Vipareeta yoga. How much damage it can cause? For your reference 6th Lord is Moon, Tithi Kaushiki Amavasya. Need your advice as someone suggested me OPAL gemstone.

  • In my horoscope, Leo Ascendant(dob 16/07/1950), Mars is with Ketu, in its inimical sign, Virgo. Hence he is both a Yogkaraka as well as a Badhakesh. He is in the Cancer sign in the D 9 chart(Sagirittus Ascendant), Hence debilitated in the D 9 chart. I want to know the net effect of these placements of Mars, during his mahadasha.
