Independent Business or Avocation Part 1

Dr. Shanker Adawal

Part 1

In an independent business or profession one may earn huge profit or sustain colossal loss. Some times such business is wound up abruptly. It is considered that the 7th, the 10th, the 2nd and the 11th houses govern income from an independent avocation. Huge income does not necessarily mean profit; income may be huge but losses too might follow due to swindling or over spending. Out of these four houses representing business the 7th house indicates one’s total independence on his business or profession. Therefore this house has very little to do with profit. The 10th house is the house of Karma or one’s efforts due to which there will be increase of wealth i.e. increase of profit or earning through one’s efforts. The 2nd house governs Vittavriddhi or increase of wealth. `Vitta’ or wealth will invariably increase only through or due to one’s efforts. Therefore, this house is responsible for a high or sizeable profit. Lastly, the 11th house governs profits from all sources. It is thus this house which gives the highest volume of profit. In other words, the houses 7th, 10th, 2nd and 11th, apart from indicating business, govern also the profit there from.

The 12th house as a rule governs losses. The 12th house from the house of profit invariably governs losses arising out of one’s independent business or profession. The respective 12th house, from the aforesaid 7th, 10th, and 2nd and 11th houses or houses of gains are the 6th, the 9th, the 1st and the 10th house. Of these four houses, viz. the 7th, the 10th, the 2nd and the 11th, the 10th house is the house of profit. This house cannot therefore play a dual role viz. create profit and cause loss. The 12th house is as a rule the house of general losses. Therefore the houses 6th, 9th and 1st can  be safely considered to be the houses which cause loss in independent profession or business.

It is a well proposition of astrology that (1) the Anntrdasa lord, in any Dasa takes decision about giving a good or bad result during its period; and (2) when a clash of conflicting Dasa and Antar Dasa results occur say as in the Dasa of the lord of the 10th house and Antar Dasa of the lord of the 6th house, the results of Antardasa will prevail notwithstanding the planet’s intrinsic or temporal strength. On the basis of this theory, the following formulae have been devised.

Formula of profit in independent occupation (P.I.O.): One earns huge profits during a Dasa, when the Dasa lord and its Antardasa lord happen to signify the 7th, the 10th, the 2nd and/or the 11th houses.


a) The Antardasa lord should not signify any of the loss incurring houses viz. 6th, 9th and 1st; and.

b) In case the Antardasa lord signifies the 6th, the 9th, or the 1st houses it must be the significator of the 7th, the 10th, the 2nd or the 11th houses primarily.

Formula for Loss in Independent Occupation (L.I.O.): One sustain loss in independent business during a Dasa when the Dasa lord and the Antardasa lord both happen to signify the 6th, the 9th or the 1st houses.

Provided: any one out of the following two provisions must be applicable to the Antardasa lord viz.

1. The Antardasa lord should not signify any house from among the 7th, the 10th, the 2nd or the 11th.

2. In case the Antardasa lord signifies the 7th, the 10th, the 2nd or the 11th house, it must be a main significator of 6th, 9th or 1st primarily.
