Encyclopedia of Vedic Astrology: Wealth & Prosperity: How to Decipher the Financial Prospects, Chapter II, Part - 1

Dr. Shanker Adawal

Financial prospects can be deciphered from a horoscope by looking into the various planetary combinations, which is discussed in this chapter, within a horoscope. The 2nd and 11th houses are mainly responsible for finance. The Ascendant, 5th and 9th houses also play an important role in judgment of financial prospects of any individual. Even 10th house, Jupiter, Sun and Moon are important for finance.

The person becomes a pauper ever since his birth and lives by alms if the lords of the 2nd and 11th houses are placed in 6, 8 or 12 along with the malefics. The association or affliction of 6th, 8th or 12th house destroys the ambitious effects of wealth and dampens the financial prospects within a horoscope. According to the Bhavarth Ratnakar, the native is rendered poor if the 2nd lord occupy the 12th and 12th lord is placed in the Ascendant aspected by a Marak or a malefic planet.

The lord of 2nd with lord of 9th occupying the 11th with Moon and Jupiter will make a native a millionaire. Lord of The Ascendant in a decent position is itself a great asset which sustains constant wealth and prosperity to a person throughout his life. The best place for The Ascendant Lord is to occupy the The Ascendant itself. Even strong Sun at a benefic place from the lord of Ascendant is a great asset for any horoscope.

The 2nd house itself, its lord and Jupiter represent accumulated wealth. The association of the 1st, its lord and the Sun with the second and its lord increases the native’s wealth through his own efforts.
If the 9th, its lord and the significators Sun and Jupiter are related to them, wealth is earned through inheritance.

The 11th house is the house of gains and rules income or the inflow of money. The 11th house and its lord along with Jupiter must be strong to generate earnings and wealth in the life. According to the Sarvartha Chintamani, if a benefic occupy 11th house, the native gets wealth through honest and novel means. If a malefic planets occupies the 11th house, then the native resorts to unfair and unscrupulous methods of earning. The source of earning and income can be deciphered through the nature of the planets and from the Bhavas related to the 11th, its lord and its significators. For example 7th lord and its Karak Venus associated with 11th may help the native to gain through the spouse.

The 9th house represents Bhagya sthana or the house of fortunes and, therefore, if the 9th house, its lord, along with Sun and Jupiter are strong and associated with benefic houses, planets, then the luck favours the native with financial prosperity throughout the life. When the 9th lord is placed in the 1st house or the Ascendant lord is in 9th house, then the native becomes a self made person.
