Sixth House

The Sixth House - Health, enemies and work activities (Virgo is the natural ruler)

The sixth house represents our ability to deal with change and adjustment, challenging us to seek competence and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Virgo's influence sees the house positioned around duties and health, with Planets placed here compelling us to perform tasks and deal with health issues in a particular way. The sixth house represents the last stage in our personal development, and for that reason is particularly important.

The way we develop and adjust under the sixth house determines our ability to communicate with and relate to those around us, with it's success or failure either uniting or separating us from others. It is the house of work, health, hygiene, nutrition and nutrition. The sixth house controls work done out of necessity and in support of others, with the issue emerging of what is the purpose of our work? Where is it's joy?

The house influences our attitude towards the improvement of both objects and our own life. The sixth house is traditionally associated with work, personal projects, routine, tasks, pets, diets, and the desire to construct and follow a plan that creates both orderly and tangible results.


Ruler of the Sixth House in different Houses

Ruler of the Sixth House in the first house

Having the ruler of the sixth house in the first indicates a direct link between the house of disease, debts and disputes with the self of the person. In its strongest and best aspected condition, this ruler endows the person with a commanding or even majestic appearance along with a love of dispute and a strongly competitive nature. Professionally, the person may choose a path in the armed forces and if this planet is extremely well dignified may achieve outstanding successes as a result. Generally however, it's best to have no link between the sixth and first house as this suggests ongoing health problems, even from an early age. If this planet is badly placed or afflicted this health complications may become chronic and long term. This affliction, on a professional level, turns the individual to the path of criminal activity.

Ruler of the Sixth House in the second house

The sixth ruler in the second creates many health problems and also incredible difficulties in family life. The second house has governance over the face and in particular the teeth and eyes and will therefore forewarn of difficulties in these areas. The person may have continuing disputes or troubles emotionally and financially in married life and depending on the strength of Venus could choose not to marry at all. As the sixth house rules debts and the second, income, the person may not be able to save money and in the extreme case may rely on others in a subsistent type of life.

Ruler of the Sixth House in the third house

Enmity may arise between siblings and neighbors as a result of the placement of the sixth ruler in the third. This endows the person with tremendous courage and if these planets, such as the sixth eighth and twelfth rulers combine in an afflicted way, the results may well be positive as this constitutes a Vipareet Yoga. This is a Raja Yoga( Kingly configuration) that involves a negation of the negative planets. The single placement of the sixth ruler here however damages the communication and also the relationship with some family members.

Ruler of the Sixth House in the fourth house

One spends excessive amounts of money on the residence and may overcapitalize, particularly if this sixth ruler is afflicted. The mother of the individual becomes his enemy and doesn't support him even from the outset of life. As the fourth house also rules vehicles, it's an unsavory position indicating troubles and breakdowns through mechanical devices such as cars. The connection to the sixth ruler with the fourth house damages ones contentment and this makes it difficult for the person to find any sweetness in life.

Ruler of the Sixth House in the fifth house

The mind of the person is badly afflicted by the sixth ruler in the fifth and the extent of this will be found through the dignity or otherwise of the sixth ruler and its aspects. Generally this is troublesome for the children and causes diseases and disputes with them, as well as bringing mental instability for the individual themselves. Vedic astrology stipulates that the properties of the person will be old and dilapidated. The individual should seek expert advice before investing in land and houses with this placement.

Ruler of the Sixth House in the sixth house

The powerful Trik ( 3rd, 6th and 8th houses ) ruler in its own sector ensures considerable power and competitiveness on the part of the person, however this planet is not a good indicator for health and creates chronic, long term and even incurable diseases during its periods. There may be a close affinity with the uncles or cousins and other members of the extended family.

Ruler of the Sixth House in the seventh house

This placement of the ruler of enemies in the seventh house creates untold difficulties for the marital relationship and if this ruler is badly afflicted, the relationship may not endure. The partner may be of a devious and calculative nature and will be continually in dispute with the individual. Finances are also adversely affected as the partner may have a taste for high expenditure and luxury goods, due to the sixth ruler being the twelfth from the seventh.

Ruler of the Sixth House in the eighth house

The ruler of the sixth house here in the worst of houses, the eighth, indicates many problematic diseases some of which are incurable. The individual may work in some research center or have interest in healing and medicine but may not be altogether faithful in relationships, in particular marriage. Many debts are to be expected as a result of this placement especially if the aspects are negative.

Ruler of the Sixth House in the ninth house

Whether the person lives a righteous or unrighteous life can be seen by the dignity of the sixth ruler here in the ninth. A well placed sixth ruler indicates success in work and spiritual life which takes some time to mature. If this planet is afflicted, the person lives an unruly life taking advantage of others and disregarding the instructions of his well wishers. With the ninth house, a house of journeys and change, the workplace or the professional activities may involve travel or foreign affairs. The uncle of the individual may rise to a high position in a court of law and be respected for his judgments.

Ruler of the Sixth House in the tenth house

Even if the ruler of the sixth is well dignified in the tenth house, the Veda's are clear - the person may indeed be an impostor and not at all trustworthy in the position he or she has assumed. This produces problems and struggles in their professional life and even brings the person to his knees after a period of success. The affliction of this sixth ruler creates obstacles in the life path and indicates loss of profession, prestige and gives many enemies.

Ruler of the Sixth House in the eleventh house

This produces legal difficulties for the person caused by his own hand. The fruits of his labor may not be lasting and enmity between the individual and his friends, brothers and sisters may arise on account of the energy of this sixth ruler. The lifelong desires of the person are not acquired easily.

Ruler of the Sixth House in the twelfth house

This sixth ruler in the twelfth is not particularly favorable, even if well dignified. Its combination with rulers of the third, eighth and twelfth rulers may bring some benefits due to the Vipareet Raja Yoga (Negation of negative rulers in conjunction). However, this can cause debts on account of illness, troubles with relatives and confrontation and obstacles in foreign lands where the person may at some time choose to work. Karmically this is not considered a great placement for life generally.
