It’s the House of Love and war, Business and Marriage, and I call it honey and money. Whatever the planet in the 7th House, your anubhavas or experiences are related to it. It’s like a door – opening to possibilities or leading to a dead end. It depends on the planets in it. It is also called Jaya bhava because it denotes how you will fight your battles with finances or relationships.
It’s the make-or-break House from the samsara perspective.
It is also a maraka bhava and a zone of conflict based on the planets and yogas occupying it. It is the 7th from the 1st House, the Asta Lagna or the setting sun because it is directly opposite the 1st House.
Who’s at home? Sun in the 7th House could indicate a conflict with the father. The planets in the 7th could be either fighting with the Lagna or aiding it.
Lagna in the 7th House is important to study for relationships. Is the planet a friend or enemy of Lagna? Saturn here delays marriage, and Mars can do the same and create marital conflict. It is called the Kuja dosh.
7th HOUSE AXIOM: Sri Rama had Mars in his 7th House marana karaka. Though Mars was in Capricorn, its exaltation sign, Sri Rama nevertheless had to undergo death-like circumstances with his spouse and the conflicts of his predicament. He fought for her honour triumphantly, but it was not an easy battle. It was because Mars was well placed, though, in a marana karaka. So the experiences are simultaneous.
The House promotes longevity, but as the 7th from the 2nd House, it also denotes an energy drain that can impact your lifespan. Its co-lords are Mars and Ketu, which lend high-octane Agni to transform. It is a burdensome house, but it teaches valuable lessons, and if you learn to take the change in your stride, the 8th House will bless you. If your cow down and get scared, it will trample all over you. Mangal and Ketu. Co-lords of Scorpio, the natural 8th House in the zodiac. It is associated with the lower parts of your body, flushing out, clearing out, lightening.
8th HOUSE MORALITY LESSON : It can take you to great lengths if you are willing to change.
8th House causes Nija doshas, doshas that you create through your actions. For example, you may be an alcoholic who drinks himself to sleep, and that’s a vice, but if you also abuse your partner, children, or family, it leads to Nija dosha.
Who’s at home? Given it’s a difficult House, planets here must be carefully analysed before concluding.

It’s the House of luck, a house that reflects our past. When reading a chart, never miss out on analyzing the 9th Lord. Because you can be like Rambo or Superman, but you still need the luck to be on your side. Everyone needs luck. Period.
The 9th House tells you whether you were born with a credit or debit note. It is vital; it can give you a charmed life, and if weak, it can make you a victim.
9th House is also a guru, father. What is luck in the early stages? Having a prosperous father gives a happy childhood. Growing up, you get good teachers and mentors who teach you the right things and set you on the correct path.
A strong 9th lord, placed in good houses, can magnify your professional life. It also empowers speakers, motivators, and life coaches because it gives them broad thinking.
Who’s at home? If the 9th lord is in the Lagna, it’s a good placement. 9th Lord in the 9th House is super!
The 10th House is called Karma Bhava because it is your ‘karma kshetra’; it is the fruition of your good karmas. I also call it Swarga Loka. Why? Because you can get moksha purely based on how sincerely you have worked throughout your life. A strong Dasamsa (D10) or 10th divisional chart can grant you moksha and take you to Swarga Loka.
Work is worship. The 10th House is all about work. When you make consistent efforts to make your time relevant to society by contributing to it, it is the highest work ethic.
We spend significant time doing the 10th House activity – work. It is your bastion, and you can claim it through sheer hard work. If you want to succeed, use your working hours to the fullest. When the Sun is up, and you are meditating or chasing other activities, it negates the 10th House discipline.
Karakas: Mercury (primary), Saturn, Jupiter, and Sun.
Always imagine a throne in the 10th House. It is yours to claim if you work hard.
Who’s at home? Natural benefics like Jupiter or Venus are excellent and strong. Waxing moon and mercury also do well here. Sun or Rahu signifies government positions in a career. 10th House lord aspected by natural benefics strengthens the House. Lord of trines, 1st, 5th, 9th in the 10th House is a good placement and shows career success.
11th HOUSE IN A NUTSHELL: It’s like a Post-Dated Cheque (PDC). You are good if you can cash it, and if it bounces, you are sunk.
Co-lorded by Rahu and Saturn, the 11th House, like the 6th, is tricky.
It is the Aya Bhava or income house. It’s all about networking, high-level associations and deals that turn into income. The future of business is 5th from the 7th House, which is the 11th House. When the 11th and 7th have a connection, it’s great for business and income. The House reveals how the native will relate to the world and people and succeed or fail.
The 11th House is about your place in the world, and it is a bridge from the promise of the 10th House to the changes of the 12th House.
Rahu in the 11th, the natural sign of Aquarius, is about the amplification of all things expensive
WATCH THIS TIP: 11th Lord is also Kala (Time), so the type of watch you wear matters. The two co-lords, as I said, for the 11th House as Saturn and Rahu. So, for example, if Saturn, your 11th Lord, is in Cancer, wear a watch with a white bezel or strap. If Rahu, as Lord of 2nd House, is in Tula, wear a black bezel or strap.
Who’s at home? The 11th is the upachaya House, so Sun and Moon are well placed here unless it is the place of their debilitation.
Is every expense bad? What’s the difference between expenditure and investment? What has value? When you spend on a vacation, is that expense or an investment?
It is the essence of the 12th House. The Upapada Lagna is seen here, which tells you where your spouse is coming from. Unlike the 7th House, which is about taking and expectations, the 12th House is about giving and caring for the life partner. The union of a couple in its purest, selfless sense is seen from the 12th House.
Meditation, moksha, hospitals, health, loss, going away, isolation, solitude, letting go, spirituality, foreign travel, foreign residence, sacrifice, and sleep disorders.
Who’s at home: Any planet in the 12th House signifies a loss of its qualities. If your 7th Lord is in the 12 House, it indicates disinterest in relationships or money. 10th Lord in the 12th House means you will always be unstable in jobs.
