So, let's have some tips today about career reading through houses in a chart -

1. 10th house is considered as main house related with Career but it is actually the house of authorities. It shows person's own authority in the world plus this house applies to career when person is working under someone else's authority, either Private or Govt. So, if you are in job setup then 10th house applies to you for career reading.

2. Then 6th house is also a house considered for service/jobs. But again, it is basically a house of your daily work life. It just shows what your daily work life should be? A Singer's daily work can be singing, A sportsperson daily work can be playing his sport and my daily work is reading charts. Just because 90% of population follows the daily work life of doing a job, they made it the house of jobs. But I consider 6th house and 6th house lord position to decide what should be someone's daily work?

3. Then if you are business person then your career will be seen from 3rd house, 7th house and 11th house.

4. 3rd house is seen for career for someonewho is sole proprietor and running his own business as it is house of self-efforts.

5. 7th house is seen for career for someone who is in partnership business as it is house of partnerships. 7th house is seen as house of business as it is about interacting and dealing with masses and other people who can be your current or potential customers. So, a strong 7th house shows person's ability to start his business and deal/interact with masses.

But 8th house is more important than 7th house to sustain that business. It is because 8th house is 2nd from 7th house, hence it represents wealth from business or as I call it business benefits. Any business can sustain itself over a long period of time, if it is able to make some money out of it. So, if we are looking for possibility of anyone running a successful business then along with 7th house, we must always check the 8th house condition. That would show if person would be able to sustain that business over a long period of time or not.

6. 11th house is seen for career for someone who is an entrepreneur, who is probably running a few businesses.

7. Besides this, Sun represents Career & Authority. Now, Sun gets debilitated in Libra which is its weakest dignity. It doesn't mean that people with Sun in Libra can't have any authority or career. As Libra is sign of business, Sun in Libra only means that they will find their career and authority through business. They can have some serious confidence issues which can only be removed by gaining confidence while dealing with challenges in life and career. Similarly, if Sun is eclipsed in chart, at axis of Rahu/Ketu, it can give delayed success in career and confidence issues which again can be dealt only through facing challenges in life and dealing with adversities.

Hope this helps. Thanks,

Relationship Synastry Post # 5.

Next one in the Ascendant Analysis is 5/9 relationship. It means X person’s ascendant is 5th to Y person’s ascendant, hence Y person’s ascendant is 9th to X person’s ascendant. It is like a relationship between Aries-Leo people or Scorpio-Pisces people.

Now, what will be the results?

1. 1st of all, first person is activating 5th house of other person and other person is activating 9th house of first person after they get into a relation. Now, what are these houses?

2. 5th house is house of education, creativity, happiness, children and counselling etc. 9th house is house of higher education, learning, religion, philosophy, literature and guiding etc.

3. From all the relationship synastries, this is the best combination you can have and most recommended one because of quite a few reasons which are as follows.

4. 5th house and 9th house are both dharma houses and considered as trikon houses. They bring fortune and luck in life. So, after their relation, couple can bring luck, fortune and happiness to each other.

5. Then sign lords in this 5/9 relation are always mutual best friends to each other. This makes 5/9 relationship as a harmonious one as both ascendant lords would co-operate with each other.

6. Also, the element of signs in 5/9 relation are same. Like, Cancer/Scorpio both are water signs and Aries/Leo both are fire signs. So, even element-wise, it is similar energy.

7. As 5th house and 9th house (5th from 5th house) both represent Love/Romance, there is a possibility of love between the two.

8. But thing which really sustains their relationship is their mutual interests and hobbies. As 5th house and 9th house would represent their interests, hobbies, passion and values, this relationship largely sustain due to these factors.

9. As all the ascendant lords in 5/9 relationship will be friendly to each other and all ascendants in this relation will be of same element, it is not necessary to go ascendant wise for this one. We can say that there will be harmonious connection between the 2 ascendants in this relationship.

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.

Hope this helps. Thanks,

So, Mars is all set for its next transit in Cancer from tomorrow for next 45 days. As 45 days is good enough time for an event to take place, I place more importance on Mars's transits among planets of shorter duration of transits. At the same time, I like to use Mars transit along with other planetary transits to see the kind of joint impact they are making for us.

So, here are the important points -

1. Mars transit in Cancer will be from 22nd June, 2019 to 7th Aug, 2019. 1st of all it will bring some relief to Gemini sign where 4 planets' energy is accumulated right now.

2. Mars is debilitated in Cancer which makes this transit more troublesome. Mars is weakest here. Now, what does it mean?

3. Mars represents our actions, efforts, anger, dominance, will-power, courage & ability to fight etc. Now, when Mars is debilitated or weak in transit then it shows that our actions and efforts can be in wrong directions. We can be spending our time and energy in useless pursuits.

4. Our anger or aggression can be ill-directed. We can throw our frustration or anger at people who don't deserve it. Anyways, I don't think anyone deserves anyone else's anger or frustration. But as Mars is in weakest dignity, our aggression can be misdirected.

5. As Mars is also karaka of violence or bloodshed, events like accidents, violent activities and surgeries can be on a high. People need to be careful while travelling or driving.

6. These negative events or activities can be more prominent if Mars is transiting through dushthana houses, i.e. 6th house, 8th house and 12th house in anyone's chart or losing its Dig Bala in 4th house. Such people need to take utmost care for their health and should not throw their frustration on others.

7. As Mars rules Aries and Scorpio signs, people of these 2 ascendants or Moon sign also need to take extra care regarding their physical health. They can feel an overall lethargy or no desire to make any effort whatsoever. Same thing can be seen for Cancer ascendant as Mars will be transiting their 1st house of physical body.

8. Now, every house represents some relations in our life. So, whichever house Mars is transiting in your chart, your aggression can be directed towards people represented by that house. Like, an Aries ascendant person can find relation with Mother or home environment charged up whereas a Gemini ascendant person will feel the pinch in family life and can have aggressive speech. So, we need to be careful while dealing with such people to maintain the cordial relation. Like, from Sagittarius to Pisces ascendant, Mars will be transiting in houses which represent romantic relationship or conflicts in relation. Hence, they need to show more patience to sustain their relationship.

9. As Venus enters in to Gemini towards the month-end we will revisit this analysis to know why coming 3-4 months can be very tough for relationship matters.

10. Now, these results can be more prominent if someone is under Mars dasha (MD/AD/PD) or someone is born with Mars in Cancer or in enemy sign. They can see the results apparently on the face.

11. Finally, there will be some joint impacts taking place during this transit -

a. Jupiter will be aspecting Mars in Cancer from Scorpio. So, the house where Cancer falls in your chart will have joint impact of Jupiter and Mars. As Mars rules Scorpio and it is debilitated in transit, it will weaken Jupiter in Scorpio for 45 days and then, as Jupiter expands things, its aspect on Mars in Cancer is going to expand anger and aggression of Mars. So, I won't like to think that Jupiter's aspect is saving grace here. At least not in Jeeva Karakas.

b. Rahu from Gemini and Mars from Cancer will aspect Libra sign. Rahu+Mars creates scene of over-aggressiveness. Hence, we can be over-aggressive, controlling or dominating related to the things of the house where Libra falls in chart. Like for me, it is 12th house of expenses. So, it can make me over-spend. So, I should keep my spending habits in check.

c. Then most importantly, Rahu from Gemini, Mars from Cancer and Saturn from Sagittarius will aspect Aquarius sign. Rahu-Saturn-Mars together can only create immense stress for things related with house where Aquarius falls and may require us to work really hard towards that house. So, whichever house Aquarius falls in your chart, you can see immense stress.

d. Last but not the least, from 17th July to 17th Aug, at least 3 planets will be transiting in Cancer at any given time. It will make us focus and deal with issues related with the house where Cancer falls in our chart.

Again, these results will be more prominent if you are under dasha of these planets and we need to become aware to take proactive measures against any such event. Final result or event always depend on overall chart, dashas and transits of all planets.

Relationship Synastry Post # 6

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 stable. 
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 still.

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.

Hope this helps. Thanks,


Post on 25th June, 2019 

So, let's have a re-look at difficult transits we are going through right now, especially in terms of relationship matters, as I was discussing in last live session.

1. As we know that this whole year we have this difficult transit of Saturn-Ketu in Sagittarius. So, whichever house these two planets are roaming around in a chart, things related with that house may come in life after immense hard work and perseverance. Also, the results of that house will be very minimum. Needless to say that people and relations of that house would require to do lots of compromise to sustain the relationship. It can be the story of any relationship, not only husband-wife or boyfriend-girlfriend.

2. Then we discussed in detail about Mars transit in Cancer through a recent post which can lead to anger & aggressive behavior being thrown at people and leading to conflicts and even violence. We all can understand that such behavior is not good to sustain any long term and meaningful relationship. So, Mars transit for next 45 days is also not helping relations at any level.

3. And then the karaka of relationship Venus is about to have a transit from Gemini to Virgo (from June-end to mid-Oct) which looks like to be very troublesome in relationship matters. Normally every year, Venus transit from Cancer to Virgo is troublesome because Cancer and Leo are enemy signs of Venus and Virgo is debilitation sign for Venus but this year this trouble starts from Gemini itself, which is otherwise a friendly sign for Venus, and the reasons are as follows –

a. Venus is in Taurus and it is already within 15 degrees of Sun in Gemini which shows that it is getting closer to be combust which will continue till Sep-end. Combustion of Venus normally leads to ego clashes in relationship. Now, in relationship, you can either have ego or relationship. Normally, in this battle of Sun & Venus, Sun/Ego wins and Relationship/Venus loses.

b. Then Venus will be in Gemini sign which is although a friendly sign for Venus, but if we see the companions of Venus in Gemini this year then we may realise that there is nothing friendly about this Venus in Gemini. Venus will be with Sun-Rahu and it will get aspect of Saturn-Ketu from Sagittarius. So, gentle Venus will remain completely beaten-up in company with 4 malefic planets. During this time, 1st it will be closely combust with Sun then it will be between Sun-Rahu, i.e. within Paap Kartari Yoga (PKY). Then Venus will be with Rahu in Gemini. This is also eclipse month which anyways is an unstable time.

c. And then Venus will enter Cancer, an enemy sign. It will be within another PKY between Rahu-Mars. Cancer is sign of emotions and normally, when Venus is in Cancer, people like to adjust in relation due to emotions involved. But this year, as Mars is in Cancer which is all about aggressive behaviour, we can’t expect this emotional adjustment from both sides this year. Mars-Venus in Cancer can actually lead to physical/emotional abuse and violence in relation.

d. Then Venus-Mars will continue to be together in Leo, another enemy sign for Venus and a sign of ego. Relationship will again suffer due to aggression of Mars and ego of Leo. As Sun will also be there in Leo, it will keep Venus under combustion and ego conflicts will continue to trouble relations. Venus will also get aspect of Ketu from Sagittarius in Leo.

e. Then finally, Venus will be in Virgo where it is debilitated/weakest. Venus will also get Saturn’s aspect from Sagittarius which will only make things difficult for Venus. This can be the transit which can bring the culmination point after physical/emotional abuse of Cancer and ego clashes of Leo where people can consider breaking-up things.

f. As we can see that coming 3-4 months are not good for relationship and the way to sustain relationship in this time is to 1st of all be aware that it is not a favourable phase for relationship and then one should keep minimum to no expectations from relationship or partner. But the biggest difficulty is that it is very difficult to find two people with this same type of awareness in relationship. Even if one person is not willing to compromise, you can’t expect other person to compromise all the time. So, awareness from both sides is necessary.

Now, this applies to all types of relationship as Venus is karaka of any relationship but why it happens that biggest challenges are faced in husband-wife or boyfriend-girlfriend relation? It is because you can’t divorce or separate from your parents or siblings. You can’t divorce any other relative from your life. So, either willingly or unwillingly, you have to live your other relations. Only in this husband-wife or boyfriend-girlfriend relation, we see an option of moving out, which is very necessary in abusive relations or with uncompromising partners, which makes this relationship all the more difficult. Normally, people ask me how will be their married life? And I ask back if other relations in their life are perfect or ideal? If other relations have their own difficulties and challenges then how you can expect this one relationship to be perfect or ideal? So, main thing is to develop awareness regarding challenges in relationship and keep expectation level to reasonable level. It can help in sustaining these type of difficult transits.

Hope this helps. Thanks,

Relationship Synastry Post # 7

Last in the Ascendant Analysis is 7/7 relationship. We can also call it 1/7 relationship. It means that ascendants of both people involved are activating 7th house to each other. It is like a relationship between Aries-Libra people or Cancer-Capricorrn people.

Now, what will be the results?

1. 1st of all, they both are activating each others’ 7th house. Now, what are these houses?

2. 7th house is the main house of relationship, partner and marriage.

3. So, this looks like an aligned combination and most recommended one for relationship as both partners would activate 7th house of each other but like any other combination, this one also has its challenges.

4. Biggest challenge is that except Aries, Taurus, Libra and Scorpio ascendants, for all other ascendants 7th house from the ascendant is ruled by an enemy planet to ascendant lord.

5. Like, all the dual sign ascendants (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius & Pisces), lords of 1st house/7th house are Jupiter/Mercury combination. Due to mythological story of Pushya Nakshatra - https://www.astrosaxena.com/pushnaksh, we know that Mercury & Jupiter are enemies to each other and feel frustrated towards each other. Hence, for these ascendants, relationship becomes a matter of frustration where they feel that their partner is not paying attention to them.

6. For Cancer, Leo, Capricorn and Aquarius ascendants, 7th house is ruled by great enemy planet. Like, Cancer-Capricorn combination has Moon-Saturn combinations involved which are mutual great enemies. These couple would feel emotional disconnection from their partner. Leo-Aquarius combination has Sun-Saturn combination involved which is the greatest enmity of all times.

7. Even with Aries, Taurus, Libra and Scorpio ascendants, the 1st house/7th house lords (Mars-Venus) are although neutral towards each other but if we look at basic nature of Mars and Venus then there is a vast difference between the two. Mars is all about dominance and control whereas Venus is all about keeping peace and sustaining relationship. Actually, where this becomes an average or neutral combination is that Mars likes to control and Venus doesn’t mind getting controlled. This is where, relationship combinations are neutral or average for Aries, Taurus, Libra and Scorpio ascendants, but they have their own challenges.

8. A thing which can help in sustaining this 7/7 relation is business. If both partners in relationship are also partners in business then that business helps them to sustain a balanced relationship.

9. So, we can see that there will be some challenges even in this combination and other combinations as discussed before. Also, 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 was my intention behind writing this series to make people aware that there is no ideal relation, no ideal marriage and no perfect partner.

10. Now, as we have finished the ascendant analysis, we would now look at planetary synastry as to what can we expect if X person’s Moon in a particular sign is falling over Y person’s Saturn in the same sign. We will start it with planets of one partner falling over an empty house of other person’s chart. Again, it will give us an idea that why relationships are so difficult and there is nothing like horoscope matching.

Hope this helps. Thanks,
