6th, 8th & 12th Houses Yogas

While 6th house, 8th house or 12th house could yield bad results for some, it is not necessary those would be bad for all. Those who know a bit about astrology would understand where the 6th, 8th and 12th houses are situated in a horoscope. These three houses are known to the astrologers or interested people as “Dusthan”, Dushta Sthan”,” Ashubh Sthan” or “Trik Sthan”.

6th (sixth) house in a horoscope denotes diseases, enemies, accidents, and disgrace or bad name. Eighth house is considered for death, disgrace, sufferings and struggle etc. that one would encounter. Twelfth house is for unknown (hidden) opposition, losses, expenditure, imprisonment, confiscation etc. - See
While the sixth, eighth and twelfth houses reveal information on all the mentioned aspects it is also considered that the sixth, eighth or 12th (twelfth) house lord wherever it is posited or the house lord with whom it is posited would give the ill effects. Similar is true if some other house lord is posited in the any of the three Trik Sthanas.

There are exceptions to those rules however and the one who is interpreting the horoscope should understand those rules (not mentioned here as the article would go lengthy). Another important point is how do you judge. For example, if you consider death from the eighth house, it would mean longevity as well. If you consider expenditures from the twelfth house, it would also inform you how you would spend your money and likewise.

While sixth house signifies enemies, one must understand if this house is under benefic effect, the person would have no enemies. Sometimes the combinations are such that the person even gets benefited from his/her enemies. Competition success is seen from this house as well. Not to forget, sixth house is the 9th house from the 10th.

Eighth house would tell the mentioned features and it will also inform if the person would receive gifts, unearned money and the interest in occult sciences. There have been people with planets posited in the eighth house making big names.

Twelfth house would disclose whether the person would lead a simple life or a luxurious life, his/her inclination towards the glamour world, ability to save money and foreign trips. Emancipation (moksha) is also considered from this house.

To conclude it all depends on the planetary positions, aspects, combinations and strength of the planets under consideration. It would depend on the astrologer if points other than these are also to be considered. While considering a horoscope, several factors are taken into account by an astrologer and then come the final statement.

Astrologically Yoga means a combination, an arrangement formed by placement of planets in a particular pattern. It is believed that yoga’s provide special strength to the horoscope. There are numerous Rajyoga’s that can exist in the horoscope. But Vipreet Raj Yoga has its own distinction.

Talking about Vipreet Raj yoga, classics portray 6th, 8th and 12th house in a horoscope as Dushtsthan or evil houses. It is believed that with such a combination not only the lords of the houses give adverse effect but also the planets posited in these houses turn inimical. The Vipreet Raj Yoga itself is a combination of 6th ,8th, 12th lords and houses.

Through experience, it has been found that under certain circumstances planets related to these evil houses through PAC (placement, aspect and conjunction) cause immense favorable results, which are unexpected, sudden and beyond expectation. The person despite initial struggles/pitfalls rises to dizzy heights.

Some of prominent personalities having Vipreet Ra yogas are Sachin Tendulkar, Amitabh Bachan, Nargis Dutt , Raj Kapoor, Aishwarya Roy Bachan, Rajni kant, Lata Mangeshkar, Marget Alva, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle-author of Sherlock Holmes, Rabindra Nath Tagore, Ram Krishna Dalmia, Jugal kishore Birla. These all are revered celebrities in there own world of excellence and need no introduction. .

Thus Vipreet Rajyoga can also be of much beneficence to individuals, despite popular belief of 6,8,12th house and lords being bad. Sage Kalidas in Classic Uttarkalmitra -Kanda 4 sloka 22 has also “if the lords of the houses 6, 8 and 12 occupy either jointly or individually the houses 6, 8 and 12 or if they are in any manner connected with the houses 6 or 8 or 12 if they mutually interchange their places, provided these planets do not have any connection with other planets not owning 6 or 8 or 12, then the person will be a king and he will command much wealth. He will establish a good name and enjoy his life.”

Vipreet Raj Yoga’s are of three kinds-

Being idealist and firm on principles, they are efficient decision makers.

he mechanical and biological strength of physical body of the native is represented by ascendant and its lord in the horoscope. Influence of benefic planets - waxing Moon, Mercury, Jupiter and Venus on ascendant and/or its lord is beneficial for the individual to make him driven, energetic, ambitious, successful and long-lived, but if the ascendant is related to 8th or 12th house, the native suffers setbacks and unnatural death either by some sort of accident or assassination. Generally, ascendants of politicians are strong enough to bear various pressures, tensions and anxieties. Even then, if ascendant or its lord is hemmed in by malefics or related to 8th or 12th house or their lords, probability of assassination of the native emerges out.
The ascendant lord and 8th lord both are not inimical to friendship.
The ascendant lord is influenced by two benefics - Jupiter and Venus.
The destructive nature of the Mars and 8th house has been suppressed by a combined influence of three benefic planets - Mercury, Jupiter and Venus.
The lord of the 8th house - Saturn is exalted in fifth house and is free from any influence of the malefic association or aspect.
Hindu astrology reveals 8th house as a place of death and hence considers the worst of all the three malefic houses - 6th, 8th and 12th. In fact, 8th house describes longevity and mode of the end of the life. Mantreshwar in Phaladeepika says - If the ascendant lord and 8th lord both are mutual friends, the native will be long lived. Similar situation is created when the lord of the sign in which Moon is posited and the lord of the 8th house from the Moon sign are mutual friends. It is apparent in the chart of Morarji Desai. Ascendant lord Mercury and 8th lord Saturn both are not inimical to friendship. Also, the Sun (lord of the sign where Moon is posited) and the Jupiter (lord of the 8th place from the Moon) both are natural friends. Benefic planets - Mercury, Jupiter and Venus in the 8th house increase the longevity and predict a peaceful natural death while malefic planets such as Sun, Mars, Saturn, Rahu, Ketu and Uranus are indicative of unnatural death either by accident, suicide, wounds, fire, weapon or electric shock. Possibility of such mis-happening increases as the affliction to the 8th place increases.

As per astrologer's view 12th house is the most unfortunate place of the horoscope because it is related to delusion, seclusion, loss, expense, secret enemies, imprisonment and unseen troubles. It is the opinion that if there is no planet in the 12th house and its lord is posited in 3rd or 8th house or aspected by Saturn (not by Mars or Rahu), the evil characteristics of this house get minimised and the horoscope gains some extra strength. Saturn is distinguished from Mars and Rahu in the sense that while Saturn is a planet of delay, harassment and punishment, Mars and Rahu are planets of hurt, injury, arrogance, excitement, explosions and fire. Saturn ultimately bestows peace and progress to the native but Mars and Rahu lead to an awful situation. Thus the influence of the latter on 12 th house and its lord is not conduicive for peaceful life.*+-

We find 12th and 6th houses both signify enemies, injuries, sorrows and obstacles but there is a little demarcation that while the 12th house stands for secret enemies and their conspiracy, the 6th house stands for open field enemies. If there is influence of benefics on 6th house and its lord, the native gets rid of his enemies. Thus it is the affliction to the 12th house or its lord that stands for assassination.

Astrologers know that benefic or malefic functions of planets not only depend upon their intrinsic nature but also on their lordship. Sun, Mars, Saturn and Rahu-Ketu are evil by nature, Sun being the least and Rahu-Ketu being the most. Although the latter shadowy planets denote poisoning, secret intrigues, sudden events, assassination etc but they do not function independently. If they occupy evil places or get associated with evil planets, their adverse effect is increased tremendously. However, Saturn if linked to fatal places is considered as a first grade killer. Whereas Mars, Saturn and Rahu-Ketu are considered first grade malefics, the natural benefics - waxing Moon, Mercury, Jupiter and Venus synchronize them if they get posited in 2nd or 7th houses or get lordship their of. Both these houses are called fatal places as illustrated in Laghu Parashari-
