Dr. Shanker Adawal

Generalised Rules for Assessment of Houses

1. The physical appearance of a native will be either according to the lord of the Ascending Navamsa or corresponding to the planet which has the greatest strength in the birth chart.

His hue will be like that of the lord of the Navamsa occupied by the Moon.

His body and limbs will be in proportion with the Ascending sign and other Signs which are stated to form the head and various parts of the body of the Kalapursha.

2. Should the lord of the Ascendant occupy an Angle or a Trine with clear rays, i.e., the Sun has not eclipsed them, and

Be in exaltation or own house,

The lord of the 8th house is in a house other than an Angle and

The Ascendant is occupied by a benefic,

The native will be blessed with long life and wealth; respected, endowed with good qualities, recognized by the ruler, fortunate, possessing beautiful body parts and well built physique, pious and a family man.

3. Should the lord of the Ascendant be well associated, i.e. with a benefic or friend, the native will live in a good village or with noble associates, and

If these associated planets are powerful, he will enjoy the patronage of a powerful person/government officials.

When the said planet (Ascendant lord) is in his exaltation, the native himself will become a king.

4. Should the planet occupy his own house, the native will live in his own birth place.

When the planet occupies a moveable sign, the native will always be travelling.

If he is in a fixed sign, the native will be static at one place.

The effect will be mixed, if this planet is in a dual sign.

5. If in a nativity the lord of the Ascendant has brilliant rays, the concerned native becomes famous.

When the lord of lagna is well placed, the native will be happy and prosperous.

6. Should Lagna lord be in an evil houses, or in the house of a malefic planet or that of an enemy or be in his depression sign, the man concerned will lead a miserable life and live in a despicable place, amidst outcasts or vile people.

7. If the lord of Ascendant is powerful, the native will be happy, thrive well and gain power and prominence; and

If it be without strength, he will suffer constantly, facing many calamities sad and sick.

8. When the lord of the 2nd house is posited in the Ascendant and a benefic occupies the 2nd house, the native possesses the best qualities of head and heart, has a prosperous family is rich, affable and far sighted.

If lord of the 2nd house is associated with the Sun, the native utilizes his knowledge and wealth for the good of mankind.

If the 2nd house lord is associated with Saturn, the native is hardly educated and he is of a low-intellect.

When the planet associated (with the lord of the 2nd) is Jupiter, the native becomes proficient in the Sacred lore and Code of law;

If it is Mercury, he is good at politics;

If Venus, he is adept in amorous topics;

If it is the Moon, he possesses some knowledge of the arts;

If Mars, he is clever in works requiring hard labour but is a backbiter;

If Rahu, his speech is indistinct;

If Ketu, he stammers and conceals facts.

When malefic occupy the 2nd house, the native is both foolish and poverty stricken.

9. When the lord of the 3rd house and that of the Ascendant are connected by their mutual exchange of places and are strong, the native shall be brave, valorous, friendly to his brothers and capable of performing daring acts.

If the lord of the 3rd house is strong and is associated with an auspicious planet and if the Karaka of this House (Mars) is powerful and also occupies a benefic house, the prosperity of the brothers is promised.

But should lord of the 3rd house be weak or unfavourably posited, loss brother is certain.

When both the Karaka and the lord of the 3rd House occupy odd signs and are aspected by Jupiter, the Sun and Mars, and if the 3rd house is also an odd sign, the native will have as many brothers as are indicated by the Navamsa of both the Karaka and the lord of the 3rd House.

10. When in a nativity the lord of the 4th house and the Moon occupy a evil house (6th, 8th or 12th) and are not associated with or aspected by benefic or are hammed between malefic and are also associated with or aspected by a malefic, the effect is going to cause the death of the native’s mother.

On the contrary, when the said two planets are powerful and are associated with or aspected by benefic and if the benefic occupy the 4th house, the Yoga is conducive to the mother’s happiness.

11. The happiness of the mother may be predicted by a reference to the benefic occupying favourable position counted from the Moon.

If the lord of the Ascendant is in the 4th house or that Lord of 4th is in the Ascendant and should the Moon aspect either of these, the native shall perform the funeral rites of his mother.

But when these two planets occupy the inimical or depression sign of each other, or they occupy the 6th or the 8th house with reference to each other and are not in any way connected with each other either by association or aspect the native shall not perform the last rites of his mother when she dies.

Just as is said about the mother from the 4th House and its karaka Moon, similarly the assessment to be done regarding the father, brothers and sons etc, after referring to the respective house, Karakas of the concerned house, the planet owning that House, and the connection of the planets with the Ascendant and its lord.

12. When the lord of the 4th House and Venus occupy a good position in the Ascendant or the 4th house, and both are not under debilitation or combust or with any other defect, the native enjoys the use of palanquin as his vehicle and/or with royal honour; the native will also possess gold and valuable ornaments, silk, costly jewels, cattle wealth, (cows, elephants and horses now a days a number of costly vehicles) and all such things which will lead to luxury and sexual gratification.

When the lord of the 4th house occupies a evil house (6th, 8th or 12th) or is associated with the Sun and Mars, or

If the 4th house is occupied by Mars and the Sun, the house where the native was born will be burnt.

When Rahu or Saturn is in the 4th house with its lord, the house will be old and dilapidated.

If the lord of the 4th is associated with an inimical planet, the native’s holdings such as the cattle wealth, land, vehicles, etc. will be taken away by his enemies.

13. When the 5th House is identical with a sign or navamsa owned by Mercury (a benefic) or occupied by that planet, the native will be intelligent and open-hearted. The same effect will be felt, when the lord of the 5th House is strongly placed and has attained a Vaiseshikamsa.
