It is important to note that the positive placement of Mars, Saturn, and the 6th house lord carry an important role in amplifying the favorable effects or saving from negative results of Venus in the 6th house.

Saturn. similarly to the 6th house, it signifies employees, subordinates, and hard labor.

The 6th house ruler becomes a guide to Venus in this house. Hence, in order to determine the deeper outcomes of this combination, the condition of the 6th house ruler has to be analyzed.

Additionally, the majority of results are also determined by the zodiac sign in which the Venus resides in the 6th house.

Results of Venus in 6th House

What does Venus in the sixth house mean? The energies of the 6th house do not resonate harmoniously with the ones of Venus, as the considered house is the natural astrological house of Virgo, where Venus falls.

According to this, sixth house Venus can be harmful to different relations, and promote more enemies than friends. It also indicates unnecessary expenditure and financial struggles at times. However, if Venus is exalted or in the sign of its friends, more positive influences are seen, such as becoming a compassionate, creative, artistic, peaceful, balanced, and harmonious person.

Why Venus does not resonate well with the considered house is because the 6th house is all about disputes, war, and litigation. Being a humble, sweet, compassionate, and unconditionally loving planet of balance, Venus does not like being in this environment at all.

From the 6th house, Venus sheds its aspect ray upon the 12th house. As per mismatching energies between the sixth house and Venus, the aspect of the 12th house indicates increased expenditure and formation of secret enemies. There might be losses on account of ailments and immoral physical relations (6).

The 6th house is one of the houses of constant increase, which means that the significances of Venus improve gradually over time. Over time, Venus learns to deal with the harsh side of life effectively.

Harmonious Approach

As Venus is a soft planet in nature, it deals with disputes in a calm and harmonious way.

Rather than entering a conflict with force, a dignified or well placed Venus prefers signing agreements and finding compromises in order to attain peace for all parties.

After all, Venus is the planet of balance, peace, and harmony because it governs the zodiac sign of Libra. The critical and analyzing thinking of these natives enables them to attain agreements through efficient arguments and negotiation.

On the contrary, if Venus is undignified or fallen in the given house, it indicates a person who is fond of finding mistakes in others, especially when it is related to beauty or justice. They are prone to initiate quarrels for selfish benefits. They are fond of distracting people from their activities and blame them.

That is to say, their behavior fuels disharmony instead of providing balance and harmony.

Fruits Of Creativity

Sixth house Venus is auspicious regarding fruits of creativity, as is the second house (gain) of the 5th house of creativity while being a creative planet itself.

Accordingly, this combination indicates taking a creative and artistic approach in dealing with obstacles of life. These natives apply their artistic and colorful approach in service (6) as well.

As the 6th house is of details, Venus in this house puts lots of attention on matters that are related to beauty and style. With their creative approach and attention to detail, they seek out the best luxurious and trendy articles of beauty, such as dresses, accessories, vehicles, etc. They also take extra care of their appearance. If they don’t, they are prompted to do it due to circumstances.

Their excessive concern about beauty and trends causes an increase in their overall expenses. While they are disliking to earn wealth through hard work and service, they are prone to periodical financial difficulties. These difficulties can be overcome is Venus is dignified and they manage to discipline themselves manage and analyze necessities of expenses and work more.

Financial Condition

By default, Venus in sixth indicates financial struggles and hardships, which improve over time and may form strengths.

In addition to that, if Venus also happens to be in a favorable sign (exalted, in friendly sign) it indicates a sound financial condition and great creative abilities in earning the money.

It is important to remember that the 6th house belongs to Artha Trikona, which is the triangle of wealth where a strong Venus signifies abilities to overcome obstacles and keep grinding until succeeding.

However, Venus functions in this house in a soft and creative way, unlike for example natural malefic planet Mars, which confronts issues aggressively in a never giving up attitude.

Alternatively, while Venus does not suit in the harsh environment of the considered house by itself, ill-placed (fallen, in inimical sign) Venus in the considered house fails to confront issues in life and overcome obstacles, which can translate to the bad financial condition, struggle to succeed in undertakings, and remaining in undesired service under mean people.

Fewer Enemies

Now that we learned how Venus behaves in the 6th house, we have to see how it influences matters regarding opposition and enemies. As Venus avoids quarrels, disputes, and war, it equally means that there are usually fewer enemies as a result.

When one doesn’t seek arguments, one will not have any opponent. However, as this Venus does not want to confront enemies, they will keep being active secretly behind the back and against the native with this combination.

If that is the case, then the lack of motivation and will power to confront opposition equals fewer achievements and satisfaction in general.

Alternatively, matters are a lot different when Venus conjoins for example Mars in the same house or is disposed of by strong Mars, which protects Venus.

Moreover, as Venus is a female planet, it indicates that most opponents and enemies are females who cause struggles or challenges to the native.

Practical In Relationship

Venus is the significator of marriage and relationships which feels rather uncomfortable in the critical environment of the 6th house.

As a result of Venus being in 6th house, the native becomes critical and demanding which leads to a certain degree of bitterness in relationships or married life.

It also indicts that these natives take a practical or overly analytical approach to love matters which on the one hand hurts feelings but on the other hand makes the relationship stable and due to fewer issues caused by emotions.

Accordingly, if Venus is dignified in this house, it indicates high attention to detail to every aspect of the relationship which actually helps to improve it.

As a result of attention to detail, the native takes care of every aspect of the relationship which makes it lasting and fulfilling. As the 6th house is still a malefic house, quarrels and nagging due to the excessive attention to details are imminent.

Alternatively, it also indicates that they are fond of seeking faults in a relationship or marriage in order to solve them. They are also willing to help solve the marital issues of other people. A dignified Venus in the 6th house makes these natives very sensitive and compassionate.

If Venus is undignified in the given house, it creates a super bitter, critical, and quarrelsome person who is unable to open their hearts and also closes the hearts of their partner with their extreme levels of criticism.

Fights For Justice

Venus being the planet of love, relationships, and beauty in the 6th house of service indicates being in service, where they counsel couples or solve disputes regarding marriage issues.

Their work service also includes other critical matters such as litigation, disputes, and quarrels, as the 6th house suggests. At the same time, Venus represents balance, justice, and equity. Hence, these natives involve in fighting for justice in their service.

Other than that, their service also includes serving or taking care of underprivileged, isolated, or underprivileged people and/or animals. They are efficient activists and strive for attaining equity and justice regarding nature, animals, or humanistic values in general.

With that being said, their service always includes some bitterness or disharmony which Venus naturally dislikes. This makes these natives somewhat uncontented and stressed in life.

However, if Venus is strong and dignified, they succeed in their pious pursuits and make a positive impact which is their greatest reward and compensates all their stress.

Harsha Viparita Raja Yoga

When Venus is in its own sign while being in the sixth astrological house, it forms a very powerful Harsha Viparita Raja Yoga. In other words, it means that the lord of the 6th house is in the 6th house.

As a result, this combination protects from negative effects of the considered house and boosts benefits form it.

That is to say, this yoga protects from harmful enemies and transforms the mistakes of enemies into personal benefits.

This combination also turns debts into huge profits with the themes of Venus, such as arts, vehicles, etc. Not to mention, it also protects from health ailments and diseases boosting the immune system.

Classical Analysis

Bhrigu Sutras

According to this classical source, individuals with this combination have good relations with maternal siblings. That is because the 6th is 3rd (siblings) from the 4th (mother) house.

At the same time, Venus is a natural benefic planet of luxury and comforts, which by default indicates benefits from maternal relatives.

With this combination, the native destroys enemies and opponents as per Bhrigu Sutras. As it is a natural benefic planet, they use strategic and tactical thinking in order to destroy enemies.

This combination also indicates having children because6th is 2nd (value, resource) of 5th (progeny) while Venus is the planet of fertility. In other words, fertility is resourceful in the 6th house.

However, the native is prone to cause unnecessary wastes of wealth with their decisions. That is because Venus the planet of comforts and luxuries casts a direct aspect upon the 12th house of losses and expenses.

Hence, the themes and results of the 6th house Venus such as excessive concern about details and perfectionism influence their expenses and losses.

As per basic guidelines of astrology, such negative effects are provided if Venus is weak, ill aspected, or undignified in the 6th house. This also causes the natives to become negatively clever, secretive, and deceitful.

If the 6th house ruler is strong and dignified, it indicates increased amount of obstacles, opposition, and enemies. This is actually a blessing in disguide because when theres more obstacles, the native is prompted to overcome them and become more smarter and stronger as a result.

It is important to note that Venus should be dignified to successfully overcome enemies using clever tactics, mental discipline, power of justice, and intelligence.

However, if the 6th ruler is undignified or weak, while Venus is in the 6th house, it indicates less amount/destruction of obstacles and enemies. It also indicates destroying enemies by unethical or sinful ways using the strengths of Venus (wealth, diplomatic wisdom, society).

An undignified 6th ruler also indicates enmity or disharmony between the native and maternal relatives.

Brihat Jataka

According to Brihat Jataka, this combination saves the native from enemies. Thatis because of the softer and gentle approach to difficulties, opposition, and challenges. With their less competitive and aggressive spirit, they attract fewer enemies as a result.


In this classical source, the same effect is mentioned regarding enemies. In addition to this, there is also mentioned that such natives are also less satisfied and remain in need of luxuries.

That is because Venus is the planet of comforts and luxuries which indicates a hedonistic and lavish lifestyle. At the same time, Venus likes to provide these luxuries with less amount of hard work and effort.

This means that this planet feels naturally uncomfortable in the environment of a malefic 6th house which signifies discipline, service, and hard work.

Venus loves comforts instead of servicing and challenging work. Hence, individuals with this combination are rather passive because of disliking working hard.

In fact, the 6th house belongs to the wealth triangle in which Venus becomes passive. Hence, it is mentioned that such individuals are unable to earn through 6th house matters effectively and remain dissatisfied due to hardly attainable luxuries.

It is important to note that if Venus is dignified in this house, the native is able to discipline themselves but remain highly dissatisfied at the same time. With that being said they find contentment if their service doesn’t involve heavy work and physical challenges.


Individuals with this combiantion have a mean and critical mentality. They will be constantly distressed to to challenges and bitter relations with life partner.

Chamatkara Chintamani

As per Chamatkara Chintamani, such individuals have increased expenses due to a lavish lifestyle. If Venus is undignified in the 6th house, it indicates sinful and dangerous enemies.
