Encyclopedia of Vedic Astrology: Wealth & Prosperity: Analysing the Ascendant or the First House, Chapter IV, Part - 1

Dr. Shanker Adawal

As we have discussed earlier in the previous chapters that the Ascendant is the only house that signifies Kendra as well as Trikona houses in any horoscope, hence it is the most important house that have to be studied to find the prospects of wealth and prosperity in any horoscope. The strength of Ascendant, its lord and its significator indicates the level of financial status and prosperity which the native may enjoy during the periods of transits and Dashas of the these planets.

The significator of the Ascendant house is Sun.

Placement of the Ascendant lord in an auspicious house like Kendra houses or the Trikona houses, its association with the Yogakaraka planet and other benefic planets and especially its placement in the constellation of a benefic planet, are the important factors which lend strength to the lord of Ascendant house. Hence the above factors are taken into consideration while ascertaining the financial prospects from the ascendant of any individual.

The placement of Ascendant lord in 6th, 8th or 12th houses, its association with the malefic planets or the debilitated planets and its placement in the constellation of the malefic planets makes it weak and is not considered good for financial prospects or prosperity of any individual.

Any placement of the benefic planets in the Ascendant and mutual exchange of sign of its lord with the 2nd, 9th or 11th is considered good for financial prosperity of any individual, and the native enjoys good fortune and financial prosperity in his life.
