Planetary combination for Medical profession

The Sun and Venus are the significator planets for medicine and professions connected with medicine. Rahu is the planet connected with poison.  The poison is also known as venom in medical terminology.  The medicine has linkages with both chemistry and herbs.

The chemical substances are usually poisonous in nature and thus, its nexus can be traced with Rahu.  Herbs are attributed with Moon, as Moon is a watery planet that provides motherly care to the herbs to grow and thrive.  Medical profession is a conventional profession, since human beings, and for that matter all other animals put into use medicines, in one or the other form, since their existence in the earth to get relief from the pain of ailments.  Ketu has some role here to play.

Besides medicine, the other prominent parts of the medical profession are surgery, dentistry, etc. The Mars is the significator planet here.

The placement and combination of various planets in different houses in the natal chart are indicative of whether an individual would go for medical profession or not.  We make both micro and macro analysis and delineate the result from D1 (the main natal chart), D24 (divisional chart for education) and D10 (the sub divisional chart for professional matter) vis-à-vis planetary period(s) and sub-period(s) together with strong and favourable planetary transit at the appropriate time.

The career and jobs connected with medical profession are many and numerous now a day.  The top-most being the renowned physicians and surgeons in their respective filed of specializations, the scientists involved in research and developments to bring meaningful progress in the medical arena, bio-medical engineers involved in developing medical aids and instruments, nurses and so on.

The Moon makes one nurse, midwife, and jobs in other supporting field in medical profession.  The medical representatives and chemists/pharmacists, the hospital owners, etc. all come under the same spectrum of medical profession.


Analysis of the 6th house

The Sixth House describes the general health of the native, and the type of sickness to which he is prone. It also determines the conditions with which the daily work is carried out, even though this normally is shown by the Tenth House. Its chief concern, however, is to elucidate the conditions surrounding the work or duty involved and the reaction where co-workers, employers or employees are concerned. The Zodiacal Sign actually on the cusp of the Sixth House will show the degree of physical strength or weakness and the ailments to which the individual will be susceptible.

The 6th house in a horoscope is referred to as the house of health. Maintaining good health is the ability to cope in the face of adversity, and this is seen from the 6th house. As human beings, we naturally have shortcomings. What will we do with them? How will we react in the face of personal crisis? Crises, illness and reversals of fortune are all part of our earthly trek. How we confront these situations and deal with the lessons they invariably teach us helps to define the person we become.

The sixth house of horoscope represents the struggle-experience. The six house shows struggle, difficulties, opposition of various kinds, litigation and servitude. This house represents fear, difficulties, enemies, ill health, debt and fear of death. Essentially it is the house of difficulties.

Our fears may hold us back, but we can meet them head on and come out stronger on the other side, we may learn the valuable lesson of service or what our life’s work should be. Work and service are central to the sixth house. The focus here is on employment (employers and employee), training, those who serve us (along with those we serve) and those who depend on us. Keeping ourselves strong throughout these efforts is also important here, which is why this house further focuses on health (good and bad), diet, fitness and hygiene.

Essential to the work, we do in life is the work; we do on our self duty, responsibility and personal growth all contribute to the creation of a fully-realized being. We work for others as well as for ourselves; we are at service to those who need us, including our own being. There will be times when crises of health or faith will stand in the way of our best self. At those times, we must endeavor to heal ourselves so that we can return to the work of realizing our sum potential, of serving our world.

The sixth house of horoscope also addresses the daily activities of life: what will I wear today? Do I need a haircut? These simple matters keep our engines humming and enable us to do the more important work of our choosing. The ability to serve others in health and through work is both valuable and fulfilling. how you serve others in a useful way: helping, working, waiting-on, attending, serving, using skills, teaching skills, craftsmanship, taking care of details, organizing; how you do your duties: everyday work routines, chores, job functions, responsibilities, using proper methods, being punctual, being organized, keeping schedules, working well, being efficient/competent/skillful, how you work or perform to make a living; how you “fix” things or make them more “perfect”; how you take responsibility for your own health & fitness: diet, exercise, health care, stress management, sleep habits, medical check-ups; how you care for the health & fitness of others: health-care work, therapy, nutrition counseling, fitness training, nursing, pharmacy. The sixth house in the natural Zodiac is ruled by the sign Virgo and the Planet mercury.

So far as conditions of work are concerned, considered apart from the actual nature of the vocation that is followed, one has to make allowance for one of three factors, i.e., whether the individual under consideration is employed, is an employer, or carries out vocational activities on his or her own initiative. The Cardinal Signs on the cusp of the Sixth House give the strongest indication of the exercising of control over others. The Fixed Signs show the greater capacity for the actual carrying out of work or duties. Mutable signs demonstrate such in-between positions as Foreman or Shop-Steward. The Fire Signs will undoubtedly increase the natural enthusiasm for the work being done.

In a Mundane Figure it enhances the public health and the laboring class including all involuntary services rendered by the people.

In a National Figure it favors any political party supporting Labor. In a Court of Law the deliberations of the jury and the Court records and reports are influenced by the Sixth House. In an organization the Sixth House affects the attitudes, efficiency and general conditions of the employees.

The Sixth House represents enemies and wounds. This is an important house as enemies can destroy our mental peace. Even though philosophically the Adversary is an active collaborator and is the builder of the strength in man, practically he can make us cry with his machinations. Hence a powerful Sixth lord is called for; if the sixth house is weak or aspected by malefics, we are bound to suffer.

The best Yoga for the destruction of enemies is Jupiter in the Ascendant & the North Node(Rahu)  in the sixth. This is also known as Ashta Lakshmi Yoga. This Yoga will wipe out enemies.

To determine the strength and the results of the 6th house we have to determine the ascendant and the lord of the 6th house. The following effects will be felt which are mentioned in the ancient texts.

The Effect of the Sixth Lord in the Eighth House

Enemies may go in for a campaign of character assassination to destroy their image.

The Effect of the Sixth Lord in the Ninth House

The Effect of the Sixth Lord in the Twelfth House

Since the 6th lord is in the 12th, the native becomes a sadist taking pleasure in torturing other beings. Their destructive power helps to annihilate their enemies.

They accept any hedonism that appeals to them & which arouses their emotions. They will be subject to considerable persecution from their enemies.

Naturally a blending of the Sign influence and any planet in the Sixth House must be made in order to gauge the outcome from the standpoint of health and sickness. In addition to the Sixth House effects, the Sign that contains the Sun, and the one containing the Moon, will exert a direct effect even though the Sun and the Moon are not in the Sixth House. The Sign containing the planet that is the ruler of the Sign on the cusp of the Sixth House affords some added information. While studying these influences it must constantly be remembered that the Sun’s position will show the physical strength whereas the Moon’s position will influence the mental strength.

Sun in the Sixth House

This is a good position for the Sun, as it will strengthen the vital forces and aid in the formation of defenses against illnesses. This position aids the native in his daily work and indicates ascension to a responsible position. There is a respect for authority, particularly where industrial and economic interests are involved. In regards to health, the nature of the Sixth House limits the vital forces of the Sun, but the Sun affords the native the power to be careful and to safeguard himself against the dangers of illness.

Moon in the Sixth House

When the Moon is posited in the Sixth House the native will pay considerable personal attention to daily activities. His routine work will be of vital importance to him. If the native can take advantage of his natural capacities of personal ingenuity, tact and the ability to handle people, he will make substantial and rewarding progress in his work. However, if he does not take advantage of his natural talents, he will experience deterioration in his affairs. Much of the Moon’s influence here will depend on the nature of the Sign on the Sixth House Cusp.

Mercury in the Sixth House

The planet Mercury in the Sixth House increases the susceptibility to nervous disorders and to ailments caused by worry and anxiety or as a result of travel. The native will have to use extreme care in pursuit of his studies because of his tendency to overdo things. In relation to the native’s work, it creates restlessness where the occupation proves to be of a very routine nature. It shows that there must always be a degree of variety for work to be done well and interest maintained. The position intensifies the power of discrimination and perception. It also gives the native a keen sense of criticism along with a psychological understanding of industrial and economic conditions.

Venus in the Sixth House

When the planet Venus is in the Sixth House, although it is a helpful position in some ways, it can bring blood disorders, infections of the throat, ears, and kidneys. As far as work goes however, this position is mainly favorable. It brings cooperation and further progress as long as there is harmony with others in the sphere of the work. Routine and output will suffer if there is any discord present. The native will derive many benefits through feminine influence and the cooperation of the female population.

Mars in the Sixth House

When Mars is posited in the Sixth House it exercises an exciting influence that may not be too good for health. It can show a liability to fevers, accidents, and danger associated with the work that is done. Although the position affords the native the capacity to work hard and is good for mechanical and kindred activities, it brings discord and friction. He will derive some degree of benefit through the masculine influence and the cooperation of men. Some financial loss is indicated by ill health or accident. It is not a good position for servants or employees, as it brings arguments and disputes with them, and at times, a degree of rebellion actually occurs.

Jupiter in the Sixth House

When Jupiter is in the Sixth House it brings sizable amount of benefit in matters concerning health, work, and employees. This position assists the recuperative powers so far as health is concerned, although there are times when it can bring on conditions of ill health through unwise habits. From the viewpoint of work, it helps to bring varied benefits while it shows that servants or employees, or even ordinary business colleagues or employees will be willing to help and to work with the native for the general good. The underlying element of luck and protection will express itself in a very marked manner from time to time.

Saturn in the Sixth House

When Saturn is in the Sixth House the position emphasizes the liability to colds, chills, accidents involving falling or things falling on the native. There is also a tendency toward industrial disease. It brings arduous conditions of work, many difficulties, worries and anxieties, even though it shows the efficiency and capacity to carry out duties and responsibilities. Saturn will tend to weaken the recuperative powers of the native, especially during the early part of life.

Accidents : Prediction through Astrology

Whenever any individual suffers from an accident and the mental trauma thereafter the first thing that he thinks on recuperating is that his time is bad and the planetary positions are not in his favor. He thinks of performing remedial measures to reduce the bad effects.

The following questions naturally arise thereafter.
Does the position of Planets have anything to do with accidents?
Is it possible to analysis the causes of accidents through astrology?
Is it possible to know the time period when accidents can take place?
Can anyone predict accidents through astrology?
The answer to all the above questions is – Yes.

The following factors play an important role in determining whether the native is susceptible for accidents.
The sign lord of Ascendant, Moon and the Sun in a birth chart.
The dispositor of the planet in the signs.
The strength of Asc, Moon and Sun.
The Divisional Charts D1, D9.
And finally the Transit Chart.

Every sign has its own quality. Hence every person born in a sign will have certain common and important traits. The Ascendant in Aries is the most prone for accidents whereas Virgo is least prone for accidents. This is because of the excess nervous energy the Aries lagna native and his inability to control it properly. Similarly Pisces lagna native is also prone to accidents. The two faced fish that Pisces represents cannot take decisions quickly due to their weak reflex action. The Virgo lagna native is more cautious and will always think twice before initiating action. Libra natives are well balanced and hence they are not generally prone to accidents. In a general manner the natives with Ascendants in the Fixed signs ( Taurus, Leo, Aquarius) are less prone to accidents. They do not like changes, experimentation and hence they follow a fixed routine which probably is the reason.

The sign occupied by the Sun plays an important part in determining the vitality of the native. The more the vitality the better the strength to recuperate and less the damage incurred. Sun is very hot and a fiery planet. It is comfortable when it occupies similar signs. But when it occupies Watery signs like Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio it will not be comfortable and hence cause accidents. Similarly when Sun occupies Sagittarius, Capricorn the fiery nature gets centered and concentrated to a particular location and this protects the individual. Similarly when the Sun occupies the fixed signs Taurus, Leo and Aquarius the fiery nature seems to be controlled by the individual and hence there is less chance of harm and accidents.

Vedic astrology gives more importance to Moon being in a friendly, own or exalted sign for the well being of the individual. Moon gives life to an individual and helps the native to survive from all casualties. Benefic aspects will improve the health and protection to the individual. Even malefic aspects are better than no aspects to the moon. The most dangerous situation is having the moon in the birth chart without any aspect. In fact all the balarishta yogas which are scripted are based on the moon’s position, its strength and the type of aspects it receives. Moon occupying Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces will be comfortable and hence it will give maximum protection to these natives. Moon in Sagittarius and Libra will also give beneficial results with regards to the health of the native. Moon in saturnine signs of Capricorn and Aquarius and Martial sign of Aries will be more prone to accidents, bruises, cuts, fevers than others. Similarly Moon occupying the Nakshatra of Saturn and Mars will be more prone to accidents than others. In a birth chart if there is a negative aspect from Saturn or Mars to the moon then the native is more prone to accidents.

The next important thing that is to be looked at is the dispositors. The sign in which the lagna, sun and the moon is placed needs to have a good relationship / aspect with the lord of its dispositor. This relationship will decide whether the native will be accident prone or not. Eg. Moon is in Taurus. This is a favorable position as moon is exalted and will give maximum protection, but if its dispositor Venus is placed in the 12th house from it (Aries) then it is considered unfortunate and the moon will lose its ablity to give protection. Another eg will be Aries Lagna and its dispositor Mars occupying the 12th house in Pisces. This position will give negative results and make the native accident prone.

The 12th house and the placement of its lord plays an important part in determining the events that happen over which we do not have any control. If the Fixed signs happen to be the 12th house then it is favorable as it acts protectively and also the effect is localized to a particular area. If the lord of the 12th house happens to occupy an upachaya sthana then it gives favorable result. This gives the native protection from accidents and any other undue negative results.

The 8th house and the placement of its lord gives us an idea of how and where the accidents are likely to take place and when. The placement of the 8th lord in the Asc gives bodily injury and makes the native injury prone. Its placement in the upachaya sthana gives protection to the native. Its placement in the 8th house increases longevity. The sign / house it occupies gives us an idea of the bodily injury that could be likely to take place. Eg. for an aries ascendant native, Venus happens to be the lord of the 8th house and its placement in pisces will give injury to the calves.

The 4th house signifies the end of all matters and it also signifies fatality in accidents. As per KP the 4th house lord, its star lord, 4th cuspal sub lord having any relationship with the 8th or the 12th house gives accidents. The native is likely to suffer from accidents during its maha dasha, antar dasha, pratiantar dasha or sookshma dasha. Accidents may also occur during the major and sub-periods of maraka and badhaka lords or planets placed therein.

The planets Mars and Saturn are associated with Accidents. The positioning of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto is also said to be vital when it comes to accidents. Some possible combination for a native who is accident prone is – Rahu and Mars in ascendant or second house, Saturn in Ascendant, Mars in Ascendant, Mars or Saturn in the third house, Mars or Saturn in 5th house. The Dasha period needs to looked into upto sookshma dasha level. Any combination and involvement of the 12th, 8th, 4th house will give accidents or hospitalization during its period.

Lastly the transits play an important role. If the dasha period signifies any accidents and the transits do not support them then the native is unlikely to get any accidents. This fact needs to be studied in detail. Accidents may occur during the transit period of malefic planets who occupy or aspect the malefic houses or the birth positon of the moon, sun or lagna. Prediction made only on dasha periods without looking in to transits will not give correct results. The aspects of benefic planets in Transit on the lagna, moon, sun will always help the native to lead a healthy and an accident free life.
