    I really appreciate the way you explained the journey of having a ascenedent lord in the 12th house. Impressive!

  • I ama avid reader of your articles in website, recently i was analysing the horoscope of Famous poet and freedom fighter of Tamilnadu , Maha kavi Bharthi.

    D.O.B 11.12.1882 , time 9.30 pm , place : Ettaiyapuram, tamilnadu, india

    longitude : 77 : 59 E . latitude 9: 8 N

    in this, he has reached the summit in his words / speech in the world.

    but he and family remained very poor, why is it so sir.

    Though second house remains strong , but its results of karaka vary, how to analyse the result of each karaka of bhava.

    kindly guide

  • Aquarius is my first house. Does that mean Saturn is the lord of my first house? If so, Saturn is in my 12th House. Or, is the lord of Aquarius Uranus (Uranus is in my 11th house)? Does Aquarius have two rulers (Saturn and Uranus) in Vedic?

    • Hello Emily! In Vedic astrology, Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn and Aquarius zodiac signs. Hence, in your chart, Saturn is the lord of the 1st house (ascendant) as well as the 12th house and positioned in the 12th house. Uranus is not included in the prediction system of Vedic astrology but can be used for additional data.

  • If ascendant lord Jupiter is in 12th house of Aquarius, with Saturn in Capricorn. What will happen to native? Is Jupiter strong or weak in this combination?

    • Both Jupiter and Saturn are strong/dignified which means that auspicious outcomes are produced even in the 12th house even though initial difficulties can be indeed felt.

      • Thanks for the reply. I think my Saturn is strong because it is in its own house in Capricorn in the 11th house. What are the effects of Saturn on Jupiter in 12th (depositor) and also its 3rd aspect on the first house Pisces?

  • Your prediction is extremely accurate! I don’t think I’ve read anything more accurate than this. I do hope this is my last life and that my soul is freed to eternal heaven. I do also believe by providing help to others and by doing the good deeds is what will drive my success. Thank you so much! This was very inspiring.
