House-wise Analysis of Annual Chart

1. General: As brought out in brief during chapter on “Basic Considerations”, each house of the annual chart must be analyzed first individually, then jointly with other houses and finally with the corresponding house of birth chart, before arriving at any conclusion. The rules for strength/ weakness of any house or their basic significations remain the same as stated earlier. Acharya Neelkantha said akin to Parashar that whenever a house is associated or aspected by its lord or benefics, it would boost up energy and benefic results would accrue. The converse is also true as a malefic would inhibit the results. The results of planets would depend on their Panch-Vargiya or Viswa Bala in the annual chart. Stronger the planet, better would be the results. Some of the classical combinations in respect of various houses are discussed below.

2. First House

1. A strong Lagna and the lagna lord, having great Panch-vargiya Bala, placed in Lagna, Kendra or Trikone house ensures good health, wealth, happiness, and dominance over opponents throughout the year.

2. If the lagna lord of the birth & the annual chart, the Muntha lord, lord of the year and the lord of 8th house, are all strong and placed in houses other than 6, 8, or 12, the whole year would pass in comfort, and sees good health, wealth and fame. If these lords are weak, in houses 4, 6, 8, or 12, and bereft of benefic influence, the whole year proves troublesome, causing adverse results and may even cause death in case of adverse dasha operating.

3. A strong benefic in lagna, aspected by strong lagna & Muntha lord ensures good health, wealth and fame.

4. The lagna under the association/ aspect of malefics, bereft of any benefic influence, leads to various troubles, quarrels, ill health and degradation.

5. A malefic, in a Kendra in birth chart, falling in the lagna in the Annual chart, produces adverse results.

6. A malefic, happen to be lagna lord in birth chart, casting inimical aspect on the lord of the year or lagna lord in annual chart, indicates illness. Additional malefic influences may lead to troubles equivalent to death.

7. When the sign falling in the 8th house of annual chart is identical with the lagna in the birth chart, it indicates illness.

8. A direct planet in the 12th house from lagna and a retrograde planet in the 2nd house, cause illness. Such a situation in relation to the lord of the year or lagna lord of birth/ annual chart, may cause imprisonment if the birth chart also indicates the same.

9. Lagna lord in 8th house of annual chart, in inimical aspect of Mars, causes injury by weapon or accident.
