The sixth house
is the house of diseases. The sixth house of the natural Zodiac i.e. VIRGO Sign, and the sixth house from Lagna rule Health. The causes of diseases are to be found cut
from respective houses, signifying planets (Karaka), sixth house, sixth lord, Virgo sign, etc. The sixth houses from the Sunand the Moonand also sixth house fromNavamsa Ascendant
(Lagna) in Navamsa Chart have Ihe same function.
The planet who is sixth in order of degrees, minutes etc, expounding signs is ruler of diseases. Saturn, the worst malefic, is also significator of all diseases. Rahu represents the
suffering and Jupiter represents the recovery from illness. The ruler of benefic houses also rules over recoveries. Eighth and twelfth houses also rule over diseases. The Sun is the
significator of ourbody and soul. Moon is the significator of Mind and Jupiteris the significator of thinkingpower. When Mind is dejected, body is suffering; when health goes off,
the mind becomes dejected; when we think in bad ways our mind and body suffer; thus Sun, Moon and Jupiter have vital parts in building our body, mind and health.
The affliction of Sun, Moon, Bhava-lord and Signifying Planets in natal chart (Horoscope
) or affliction of these by malefic planets in transit by way of conjunction or aspect gives
rise to diseases in that part of the body which is represented by the house or planet thus afflicted. The well- fortification of a house or planet guarantees the soundness and growth
of that part, which the house or, the planet rule.
Suppose Saturn or Rahu is in Aries sign; then we can assume that the native may suffer from some trouble in Head. If the Ascendant is also afflicted, by malefics, the chances of
sufferings are more.
If the Sun, the Moon, Significator for head are also afflicted, the chances of diseases in head only increase. The nature of the disease will depend on the nature of the house
afflicted; Death-inflicting (Maraka) planet aspecting and afflicting planets etc.
The aspect and conjunction of benefic planets will minimise, the evil influences and more the benefic influences increase, the less the sufferings will be. If both the benefic and
malefic influences are equal, the diseases may not occur at all.
Suppose Aries sign is afflicted, but the Ascendant, the Sun, the Moon and Significator are not afflicted and same are well-fortified by benefic influences, in such cases there will
be a little chance of any disease in Head. What he may suffer from at worst, will be casual pain in Head, mental irritation, wrong way of thinking.
