Astrology | Houses
2-Introduction to Houses-2
The whole whole celestial sphere is divided into 12 Raashi (Signs). When they are written on a paper they are called Houses. Thus each Raashi is assigned a House, 30 degrees wide. There are several systems to draw the diagram of this - North Indian Chart, South Indian Chart, and Western Chart etc. The uppermost diamond is House No 1. Then if you go towards left (anticlockwise), the second space - Trikon (triangle), and thus the numbers go on till they reach 12. The whole astrology is filled in these 12 Houses. That is why it is very necessary to know about these Houses.
House, Bhaav, Sign and Planets
That is why when we draw the birth chart,
Bhaav or Kaarak
--Signs refer to natural zodiac (fixed) - Raashi - Aries, Taurus etc...
The 12 Houses signify like this, some things are imaginary to explain other things in the chart, suppose Cancer is Ascendant -
First House / Tanu Bhaav :
Moon is the Lord of Lagna (because Cancer Rashi in Lagna is Moon's main Rashi)
and Depositor of Venus and Saturn.
Second House / Dhan Bhaav :
Sun is the Lord of 2nd house (Leo is main Raashi/MT of Sun) and Depositor of Mars
Third House / Sahaj Bhaav :
Mercury is the Lord of 3rd house (Virgo is main Raashi/MT of Mercury) and Depositor of Pluto.
Fourth House / Bandhu Bhaav :
Venus is the Lord of 4th house (Libra is main Raashi/MT of Venus) and Depositor of
Raahu and Uranus.
Fifth House / Putra Bhaav :
Mars is the Lord of 5th House (This Raashi is the second house of Mars) of and
Depositor of Neptune.
Sixth House / Ari Bhaav :
Jupiter is the Lord of 6th house (Sagittarius is main Raashi/ MT of Jupiter)
and Ketu is also Co-Lord of 6th house (Sagittarius is main Rashi/MT of Ketu)
and no planets in it.
Seventh House / Yuvatee Bhaav :
Saturn is the Lord of 7th house (because of his full aspect on it) and Depositor of Moon.
Eight House / Randhra Bhaav :
Saturn is the Lord of 8th house (Aquarius is main Raashi/MT of Saturn).
Ninth House / Dharm Bhaav :
Jupiter is the Lord of 9th house (This Raashi is second house of Jupiter). This
rashi has no depositor.
Tenth House / Karm Bhaav :
Mars is the Lord of 10th house (Aries is main Raashi/MT of Mars) and Depositor
Eleventh House / Laabh Bhaav / :
Venus is the Lord of 11th house (Taurus is second house of Venus / MT of Moon) and
Depositor of Jupiter.
Twelfth House / Vyaya Bhaav / :
Mercury is the Lord of 12th house (Gemini is the 2nd house of Mercury / MT of Raahu)
and Depositor of Sun and Mercury.
Deciding the Length of Houses?
(1) There is the Equal House System where whether one is born at the 1st degree of Gemini or the 29th degree of Gemini, one considers the Gemini as occupying the entire 30 degrees of Gemini.
(2) There is another system, called the Bhaav Chart, which is made, 15 degrees equally around the exact moment of one's Rising Sign (Ascendant). So, if your Rising sign is the 29 degree of Gemini which means in your Bhaav Chart, 1st house ranges from the 29 degree Gemini, down to the 14th degree of Gemini, one way, but then up to the 14th degree of Cancer. That means that all the signs in your houses slide into other houses too.
Types of Houses
Anisht Bhaav for benefic Houses = 3H, 6H, 8H, and 12 Houses
Aapoklim or Cadent Houses - 3H, 6H, 9H, 12H
Raashi are classified as Aatmaa (self), Upekshak (overlooking or ignoring), Paushak (nourisher) and Baadhak (slayer). They give results according to their names. From these Houses, one should predict the auspicious and inauspicious results applicable to the two birth Raashi (of male and female). According to the Shaastra, Houses 3, 7, and 11 are called Poshak Houses and the 4, 8, and 12 Houses are called Baadhak Houses
Aatm Raashi - 1, 5, 9 Houses
Bhaav 2nd /4th /7th /10th from the Bhaav under discussion. In addition to the above following conditions has to be fulfilled for a cleaner and 100 percent result producing Bhaav,
1. No Paap Drishti (aspect) for the above positions
2. No Paap Sambandh for the above positions
Then the Bhaav under question prosper.
If not, it is "Bhaav haani Bhavat bhaavam".
That is "assuming" any Bhaav as like Lagna and finding out its strength. We normally say 6/8/12 are bad houses. When we say that, we are looking from just the Lagna only. But according to Bhavat Bhaavam principle, we should look (we can) from each Bhaav or Bhaavaadhipati or Kaarak in order to assess the total strength of the Bhaav under discussion. For example, to assess the strength of Putra Bhaav : we would look at 5th Bhaav, its Lord, Putra Kaarak Jupiter. The complete strength of Putra Bhaav could be measured by considering, benefic and malefic influences over Bhaav or Bhaavaadhipati or Kaarak positions.
So there is a lot of additions
and subtractions involved here to arrive at the final result. Let us look at
this. For Shubh Graha For the natural benefic Graha,
For Inauspicious Graha
Importance of 1/5/9 Bhaav
Importance of 6/8/12 Bhaav
Importance of 2/12/7 Bhaav
Importance of 4/8/12 Bhaav
Bhaav is strong , still no result ..How and why? We would normally think if a Bhaav Lord or Kaarak Lord under discussion is in exalted position, then Bhaav prosper. but imagine this position is Anisht Bhaav (6th or 8th or 12th), then what happens? Bhaav gained strength, but Bhaav fails to give result. Anubhav part is not happening. It is not fulfilling the result you would expect. So Uchch Sthiti of the planet is not helpful when Anisht Bhavam is encountered. Let us consider the reverse, Bhaav Lord is in Neecha or Kaarak Lord is in Neech, but there is result. How and why? This can happen when their position is Isht Bhaav like 11th house. here 100 percent result of the Bhaav would be obtained.
