How Planets act in Virgo Ascendant
Sun being ruler of 12th house shows their expenses mostly on branded items and for the satisfaction that they are having the best brand they won’t even hesitate spending big amount of money. But at other times they are money conscious and try to save it. If Sun be placed in ascendant that can make them wanderer, free spirited, spend-thrift and gives sleepless nights. Whereas Sun in 2nd house is good as person tends to make money even from Losses but being debilitated can give some very big monetary upsets. If he be well placed in Navamsa only then person will be able to make their losses as wealth. Having 12th lord in 2nd house an aspect of their family is distorted or ruined. As the Lagnesh is always revolving around 12th house lord their focus is generally on their money. Mercury behind Sun makes them ignorant of their expenses whereas ahead Sun he makes them money minded, with Sun Mercury tend to make them intelligent investors and intelligent in general. 3rd house, 6th house, 8th house, 12th house and 11th house are good placement for Sun whereas his placement in Kendra and Kona mar an important aspect of the house he is placed in.
Moon being 11th lord is responsible for their income and if Moon be with Sun their income is eclipsed and they have very low income and their life may feel like struck both generally and financially. Moon in 2nd house from Sun makes them hot, arrogant, short tempered in their relationship and makes them very much attached to their father. Moon in 3rd from Sun makes them docile, good speaker and with progressing distance of Moon from Sun their income will increase and in 7th from Sun if moon be there then native born in this ascendant will have high income and almost all their wishes in life be fulfilled whereas his journey from 7th house to Sun till he meets again with Sun is progressively bad for their daily income and fulfillment of wishes. If they are born on 1st or 9th Tithi then there can be more expenses and less income and their wishes won’t be fulfilled so easily. 2nd and 10th tithi will give them much income and fulfillment of wishes. 3rd and 11th tithi will give them inheritance and money with hard-work and struggle, they will do best if they try to earn money together with their younger siblings. 4th and 12th tithi will give them self earned money and they will be highest salary taking person in office (generally) their profession will be their sole source of income. 5th and 13th tithi will give them wealthy spouse who will also help them making money also business can be advised for them if other factors are favorable and supporting. 6th and 14th Tithi gives them money through luck, family, family business, and they can make much money using their family especially father’s support they will do well if the take the same profession/business as their father or other family members. 7th and Poornima (15th Tithi) will give them money through speculation (Please check other yoga’s too) children, investment and they are very much likely to earn money from job or self-employment. 8th and Amavasya (30th Tithi) birth needs to make their money themselves with much hard-work, strife and struggle. Generally relationships are a big turning area for Virgo people and if their relationships are not well they many find themselves financially unstable or in doldrums.
Mars is ruler of 3rd and 8th house in this ascendant that give them good longevity, courage, strength, valor, power to work from hands and his placement in any house for Virgo ascendant is very negative and will tend to kill significations of the house he is placed in. being lord of 8th and 8th from 8th his placement will decide longevity of the native and planet associated with him and his worst enemy using fivefold relationship can give death in their dasa’s (Time periods) Mars in ascendant can give chronic diseases whereas in 2nd house he gives paternal property in 3rd house he is good for valor but can give no younger siblings or elder siblings. In 4th house he is bad for brothers and peace at home but good for mother, in 5th house he gives technical education and inheritance along with growth to brothers. 6th house he will promote celibacy and is bad for marital happiness whereas in 7th house he is trouble for marital life, partnership and associations. 8th house is good for longevity and learning occult especially Jyotish and Vastu. 9th house is bad for luck, father and dignity in life. Whereas in 10th house he gives irregular job with high ups and downs jobs will be short lasting and person will usually get tired very quickly. 11th house gives inheritance, good progress in occult studies but native will be either younger or elder or only child. In 12th house again he gives irregular job, good for progress in occult studies.
Mercury is Lagnesh itself and his placement in any house is good and beneficial for that house. Brihat Parashar Hora Shastra Khemraj Shrikrishna Das Edition says that wherever Lagnesh aspects in a chart are that area for which native will be famous post death. Hence aspect of Mercury should be seen carefully for this ascendant. Is he aspects Mars from 8th house then it can be that person is known for his wealth, courage or longevity (we also took houses ruled by Mars) the house Lagnesh is placed in gives beneficial effects but is perished to some extent and number of house counted from Lagnesh to lagna will flourish, Placemement of Lagnesh in any bhava makes person work in that particular bhava. Hence if Mercury is placed in lagna person will work on self-development in 2nd house his prime focus will be family, 3rd house will shift focus to younger siblings whereas 4th house will give focus to mother, 5th house to children’s, 6th house to enemies, 7th house to spouse, 8th house to Wife’s Family, 9th house to father, 10th house to Wife’s Mother, 11th house to younger siblings and 12th house to world development. Along with This If Mercury be placed with Jupiter in Kona’s then he can give rise to Very strong Raajyoga. Mercury’s placement with Sun or Venus in any of the 2nd 11th 5th or 9th house will give Strong Dhana Yoga’s. His placement with Saturn or Venus in any of the Kendra’s can also give Raajyoga but with Saturn lot’s of struggles needs to be gone through before activation of Raajyoga
Jupiter is lord of 7th and 4th house for this ascendant and qualifies for being Badhaka his placement is best in 12th house whereas he is completely troublesome for marriage whereas in other placements he will activate hurdles in the house he is placed in. if he be with 6th lord then Strong Badhaka can be there here 6th lord can be Rahu who will make guru-chandal with Jupiter and will bode evils and sufferings in the house they are placed. Whereas Saturn as he causes debility of Jupiter will give problems due to failure of intellect and person will get into serious troubles due to that. His placement in Kendra’s makes him eligible for Kendradhipatya dosa. Sage spoke Jupiter-Venus-Mercury-Moon in this order gets Kendradhipatya dosa. Kendra’s are the houses ruled by Vishnu and as Shri Ramakrishna Paramhamsa Says god is like child and he is beyond any gunas and as children’s show different gunas at different times god also can take all Gunas himself or can work using a particular guna and yet he is free from all gunas he is gunatita (beyond gunas) as Kendra’s are ruled by Vishnu (Vishnu Sthana – Vishnu is also called Bhagwan) Kendra’s have a peculiar quality of being beyond Gunas. Some commentators have interpreted it as Benefics owning Kendras lose their nature and becomes malefic whereas malefics owning Kendra lose their nature and becomes benefic. That looks like a wrong interpretation. Other commentators have commented that Kendra owning planets becomes Neutral and benefics lose their nature of beneficence and malefics lose their nature of malfeasance. We can note that as per sage only benefics gets Kendradhipatya dosa hence second interpretation seems correct and logical. As there are only 2 unconditional benefics and 2 conditional benefics Kendradhipatya makes a benefic neutral reducing number of benefics for an ascendant. Take for example Virgo ascendant among benefics Mercury needs to be free of association with malefics whereas Moon should be three houses away from Sun on either side. Now there are only two unconditional benefics between them Jupiter becomes Neutral leaving space for only Venus to act as benefic for this ascendant. This is the real effect of Kendradhipatya on birth charts. Sage makes another statement between lines that if any planet is having Kendradhipatya dosa and is placed in Kendra’s itself especially 7th then they become Maraka and their dasa can forbade evil or can give physical death itself. These points should be kept in mind while analyzing Kendradhipatya dosa for any of the 7 ascendants that qualify for Kendradhipatya dosa.
Venus lord 9th and 2nd house for this ascendant that indicates their father will be good-looking, artistic, good manager of things and will be their guide in sense or another. Whereas his lordship of 2nd house indicates that these people love to convert their bank balance in assets mainly immovable assets like if they have some amount then they will love to purchase a vehicle or turn them into jwellery and Venus being Karaka of Marriage in this ascendant owns 3rd and 8th house from Marriage indicating that first partnership (Girlfriend/Spousal relationship) for this ascendant can be bad that needs constant hard-work, pushing, use of intellect from Native’s behest to keep going. It also shows that their 2nd serious relationship is very good and generally they are prone to find their soul mates when love happens for them another time. Venus placed with Mercury makes both Dhana and Raja yoga for this ascendant and being functional and natural benefic at same time Conjunction between them is highly auspicious that will make the house it is happening flourish and blessings will come through that life to these natives. For example if they be placed in 12th house then Native after moving to foreign lands will have good luck, guru, bank balance and happiness in family whereas in own land he can face low bank balance, disharmony in home/family, dissatisfaction and weak health.
Saturn rules 5th and 6th house for this ascendant and as his compete Sign (Capricorn) is in 5th house he is friend of Mercury but as his Mool-Trikona sign is in 6th house Saturn for this ascendant should be considers both good and bad. His placement in bad houses is good for 6th house as it ends enemies and struggles from their life but then also damages their prospects of children, happiness, good future, better education and understanding. Whereas Saturn placed in Kendra’s and Kona’s do good for 5th house promising children (Mainly female progeny) education, artistic talents, good future, better income, better future prospects but gives bad results of 6th house resulting in enemies, struggle, strife, lots of hard-work with less results. If Saturn be extremely strong then they may try to refrain from marriage.
