27. Urinary & Kidney Troubles’ Yoga

The 6th house, 6th lord, and Mercury control urinary system, whereas all glands including Kidney etc are controlled by 7th house & Venus. Moon controls blood circulation, Saturn the stones and Jupiter various generative organs located in belly. So any affliction to these may cause disease in urinary system, kidneys or generative organs. As per Jatak Parijaat, if Moon & 6th lord are posited in a watery sign, while Mercury is afflicted, native suffers from urinary troubles. Similarly, if 7th house, its lord, Libra sign, Moon, Venus & Jupiter are afflicted, one may suffer diseases of Kidney, ovaries etc. If Saturn is the afflicted planet, there may be problem of stones. Affliction by Mars indicates Surgery.

For illustration, please refer Chart No. 19 of VP Singh. He had 6th lord Jupiter in Cancer and 7th lord Saturn in Scorpio (both watery signs). Saturn (R) aspect 7th house, and Venus (in mutual aspect). 6th lord Jupiter aspected 7-8th lord Saturn in 5th and 7th house. Rahu from 9th house afflicts 6th lord Jupiter in lagna and 7th lord Saturn in 5th house. Hence he suffered Chronic renal (Kidney) failure and died of it on 27 Nov 2008.
