Dr. Shanker Adawal
Planets for Aries Ascendant
Sun being lord of a trine house is a benefic. Sun in its Dasa or Bhukti (Sub period) will give good
results in regard to the affairs governed by the 5th house viz. the acquisition of progeny, the
advancement of the prospects of progeny success in departmental examinations, profit from
Government and from speculation. Sun should, however, be strong in order to give the above good
Under the rules of Parashar of natural benefit planet when lord of a Kendra ceases to be a benefic. But
not much blemish attaches to Moon in this context. If Moon is strong by being away from the Sun, it
would give good results in regard to mental peace, amenities of life, residential accommodation and
advancement in life. If, on the other hand, Moon is weak it would give results opposite to those stated
and being lord of the fourth house, i.e. lord of 8th and 9th give very adverse results in regard to his
father’s health and longevity.
Mars has its Mool Trikon” sign in Lagna. It will primarily give the results of the first house. Hence, in
its Dasa and Bhukti Mars will prove beneficial for wealth, health and name provided it is strong. If,
however, it is weak it endangers life itself and gives such troubles as Piles, Fistula, Hydrocele. Mars in
Scorpio for this Lagna is not good, being 8th from Lagna.
As lord of two bad houses viz. third and sixth Mercury is not supposed to give good results. The
stronger it is the worse the results in regard to finances. The weaker it is the better the income. A
weak Mercury will be bad for the health of younger sisters. In spite of what has been stated above if
Mercury is influenced much by Mars, Jupiter and Moon it would give nice financial results, for in the
case of Mercury there is the over riding condition that it gives the results according to the nature of
planets influencing it.
Jupiter’s “Mool Trikon” sign falls in the ninth house. As lord and Karaka of ninth house Jupiter if strong
will bring about favour from the teachers and will increase the prospects and comforts of father. It will
give some wind fall. If weak it will indicate opposition from official of Government teachers and father,
set back in career, opposition to religion etc.
Being lord of the 2nd and 7th houses it would give the effects of the 7th house. As lord of the 7th house
Venus a natural benefic ceases to be a benefic. Hence in order to give good results in the financial
sphere Venus should have on it benefic influence. If weak it will, however, be bad for health.
As lord of 10th Kendra Saturn ceases to be a malefic but since it is lord of the 11 th house
simultaneously it becomes a malefic again. But we may add in this connection that Saturn would be
bad only in so far as health is concerned. As regards finances it would still be conducive to income
provided of course if it is strong. If weak it would lower income.
Planets for Gemini Ascendant
The lord of the third house is not considered good, hence Sun will not give much good results in
As lord of the second house, moon if strong, will give nice results in regard to finances, family,
marriage, education speech etc. If, however, Moon is weak contrary would be the results in matters
Mars becomes lord of sixth and eleventh houses both indicating in jury. Since Mars himself is also an
in jury planet, if can inflict in jury particularly if it aspects the Lagna and its lord Mercury. By causing
affliction Mars gives both income and losses alternatively.
Being lord of Lagna, Mercury is nice for wealth, health and longevity provided Mercury is strong. If
weak if would give brain and emotional troubles, loss of wealth, opposition to relatives, bad relations
with the public etc.
Being lord of two Kendra houses viz. 7th and 10th Jupiter ceases to be a benefic and if placed in
maraca houses i.e., second, 7th etc. It can give serious physical trouble during its Dasa and bhukti. If,
however, it is strong it is capable of conferring much benefit from government, wife and business,
particularly the former.
It gives results of the 5th house. If strong Venus gives success in departmental examination, gives
birth to progeny, increases the prospects of progeny, enhances financial condition. If it is weak
contrary can be the results. If strong in fifth house, it can give woman affairs too.
As lord of 8th and 9th house it is more or less equally balanced, but since its mool trikon sign falls in
the 9th house the house of luck Saturn it strong will enhance the prospects of career both of self and
those of the father. If weak contrary would be the result.
Planets for Virgo Ascendant
As lord of the twelfth house the Sun is good if strong in which case there is favour from Government
contacts with high people and wealth. But if it is weak, it will give eye trouble, much expenses and
punishment from the Government.
As lord of 11th house Moon strong assures good income but it is not considered good for health if
It becomes lord of third and 8th houses. As lord of two bad houses a strong Mars gives poverty but at
the same time good longevity. A weak Mars is good for finances but not good for longevity. People
having Mars in the tenth house should not consider it as strong for these houses it being third from
Aries and 8th from Scorpio i.e. badly situated from each of its signs. In consequence it short tens life
and is bad for finances.
Being lord of Lagna Kendra and Kona it is very nice. Only it should not be weak. If weak it gives bad
It suffers from the effect of owning two Kendras. Hence if placed in bad houses like 2 nd, 7th, 6th or 8th
it creates physical trouble in it’s Dasa and Bhukti. If, however, it is strong and well placed it gives
much wealth also honor and favour from Government.
Being lord of the 2nd and 9th houses it would give primarily the results of 9th house. If strong it gives
favour and wealth from Government and good enjoyments. If it is weak it indicates loss of wealth, set
back in career and disfavor from Government.
Saturn will give results more of sixth than of fifth house as its Mool Trikon sign falls in the sixth house.
Hence enmity, debts etc. may be expected during the Dasa of Saturn.
Planets For Scorpio Ascendant
As malefic lord of 10th house the sun ceases to be a malefic. If strong if gives high honour, contracts,
high class business, ruling powers etc. If weak, it will give dishonor from Government, loss of wealth
of father, worry etc.
As lord of the best trine a strong Moon away from Sun gives much luck boosting of career, wealth etc.
in its Dasa and Bhukti. If weak it denotes danger to father’s life and loss of one’s own wealth and
It is lord of first and Sixth houses. First house is far too good than sixth but the Mool trikon sign of
Mars falls in sixth house, hence it is neutral. If strong it gives good results if weak bad.
AS lord of two bad houses it is considered as a bad planet. But it is bad for health rather than wealth.
When weak it is of course not conductive to good income. May even cause losses.
Being lord of fifth house Jupiter if strong will give sons, wealth, luck to self and father. If it is weak
one loses wealth as the hands of one’s son and suffers in speculation etc.
It becomes lord of the 12th and the 7th houses. Both these houses are connected with enjoyment of
sex. Hence Venus if strong makes one highly sexed. As lord of seventh Kendra Venus ceases to be a
benefic. It, therefore, gives bad results.
It is bad as it owns the third house the weaker it is the better it is for wealth.
