Bhavas- First House ( Tanu Bhava)-BPHS

Aum Shri Gurave NamaH!

The first house or Tanu Bhava (Tanu means body or self) is the house in which Lagna (Ascendent ), it is also called as Lagna bhava.

Judgement of Bhavas

1. O Maharishi Parashar, I have come to know of the evils and antidotes there of from you. Please tell me, what is to be deduced from each Bhava (House).
2. Indications of Tanu (Self) Bhava. Maharishi Parashar replies. Physique, appearance, intellect (or the organ of intelligence, i.e. brain), complexion of the body, vigour, weakness, happiness, grief and innate nature are all to be guessed through the ascending Rasi.
3. Indications of Dhan (Wealth) Bhava. Wealth, grains (food etc.), family, death, enemies, metals, precious stones etc. are to be understood through Dhan Bhava.

5. Indications of Bandhu (Relation) Bhava. Conveyances, relatives, mother, happiness, treasure, lands and buildings are to be consulted through Bandhu Bhava.
6. Indications of Putra (Son) Bhava. The learned should deduce from Putra Bhava amulets, sacred spells, learning, knowledge, sons, royalty (or authority), fall of position etc.
7. Indications of Ari ( Income) Bhava. Maternal uncle, doubts about death, enemies, ulcers, step-mother etc. are to be estimated from Ari Bhava.
(Income- is not just money, it is desease, enemies wrath, health problems, troubles from relatives, so everything is an income)
8. Indications of Yuvati (Spouse/Women/Female)Bhava. Wife, travel, trade, loss of sight, death etc. be known from Yuvati Bhava.

13. Indications of Vyaya ( Expenditure or Loss) Bhava. From Vyaya Bhava, one can know about expenses, history of enemies, one’s own death etc.
14-16. Prosperity, or Annihilation of a Bhava.
Predict prosperity of the Bhava, which is yuti (Conjoined) with, or drishtied (Sight) by a benefic. Also, when its Lord is in Yuva Avastha, or Prabuddha Avastha, or in Kismara Avastha, or in Karm Bhava, the Bhavas well-being is indicated. The Bhava, which is not drishtied by its Lord, or, whose Lord is with a malefic Grah (Planet), or with one of the Lords of evil and such other Bhavas (i.e. 3rd, 6th, 8th, 11th and 12th), or is defeated in a war between Grahas, or is in one of the three Avasthas, viz, Vriddhavastha (Old age), Mritavastha ( Dead) and Suptavastha (Sleeping).

Effects of Tanu Bhava or First House

1-2. Physical comforts. Should Lagna Lord be yuti (conjoined) with a malefic, or be in Randhra, 6th, or 12th, physical felicity will diminish. If he is in an angle, or trine there will be at all times comforts of the body. If Lagna Lord is in debilitation, combustion, or enemy’s Rāśi, there will be diseases. With a benefic in an angle, or trine all diseases will disappear. Lagna’s angles (i.e. Bandhu, Yuvati, or the 10th), or its trine (Putra, Dharm), containing a benefic, is a powerful remedy for all, related to health.
3. There will not be bodily health, if Lagna, or Chandra be drishtied by, or yuti ( Conjoined) with a malefic, being devoid of a benefics Drishti.
4. Bodily Beauty. A benefic in Lagna will give a pleasing appearance, while a malefic will make one bereft of good appearance. Felicity of the body will be enjoyed, if Lagna is drishtied by, or yuti with a benefic.
5-7. Other Benefits. If Lagna Lord, Budh (Mercury), Guru (Jupiter), or Sukra (Venus) be in an angle, or in a trine, the native will be long lived, wealthy, intelligent and liked by the king. Fame, wealth, abundant pleasures and comforts of the body will be acquired, if Lagna Lord is in a Movable Rasi and be drishtied by a benefic Grah. One will be endowed with royal marks (of fortune), if Budh, Guru, or Sukra be in Lagna along with the Chandra (Moon), or be in angle from Lagna. If Budh, Guru, or Sukra be in 4th, 7th, or 10th from Lagna, or be in the company of Chandra in Lagna, the native will enjoy royal fortunes.
Relatively a huge mole on the right side of the forehead, which was the point of attraction all my life at least in India, anyone who came across would comment" Wow, you are a lucky one",- To tell you the truth- life till now has been very tight and the best analogy would be like a leaking dam and I have been trying to fix it since a long time, every time I close one hole, another opens up, :-)))- I have not seen any royal fortunes till now-but I have not faced any serious issues till now, there are always issues in the background but they never ever surface on to the foreground....)
Royal fortunes--Yet to be seen...I am not saying it with a hopeless feeling, it can happen any time in one's life......and particularly when Rahu controls one's chart and life, it happens late.
8. Coiled Birth. If there be a birth in one of Mesh (Aries), Vrishabh (Taurus) and Simha (Leo) Lagna's, containing either Sani (Saturn), or Mangal (Mars), the birth of the child is with a coil around a limb. The corresponding limb will be in accordance with the Rasi, or Navamsa, rising.
9. Birth of Twins. The native, who has Surya (Sun) in a quadruped Rasi, while others are in Dual Rasis with strength, is born, as one of the twins.
10. To Be Nurtured by Three Mothers. If Surya and Chandra join in one and the same Bhava and fall in one Navamsa, the native will be nurtured by three different mothers for the first three months from its birth and will later on be brought up by its father and brother. (‘Bhratri’ apart from meaning a brother calls for interpretation, as a near relative in general)
11. Important. The learned in Jyotish (Astrology) should base the effects on Chandra also, as are applicable to Lagna. Now explained are clues to know of ulcers, identity marks etc. on one’s person.
12-14. Decanates and Bodily Limbs. Head, eyes, ears, nose, temple, chin and face is the order of limbs, denoted (by the various Bhavas), when the first decanate of a Rasi ascends. In the case of the second decanate ascending the order is neck, shoulder, arm, side, heart, stomach and navel. The order for the third decanate ascending is pelvis, anus/penis, testicles, thigh, knee, calf and foot. The portion already risen indicates left side of the body (while the one yet to rise, i.e. the invisible half, denotes the right side of the body).
15. Limbs Affected. The limb, related to a malefic by occupation, will have ulcers, or scars, while the one, related to a benefic, will have a mark (like moles etc). So say the Jyotishis. (Also see Sloka 6, Ch. 4 of Saravali, which states, that a malefic, or a benefic, if be in own Rasi, or Navamsa, the effects will be right from birth. In other cases it will be in the course of one’s life, that these effects will come to pass)
This is at one level of understanding, then there are other levels like, Properties of each sign or house, like if the first house is Aries, then the intelligence, health and self will change based on the properties of Aries, and if it is Gemini, then a duality in character would be enhanced, this person is like two people living in one body, and sometimes it is so amazing that, you can see this person as an out and out Extrovert to a total Introvert, what controls this behavior depends on stimulants, which again are based on various Grahs (Planets), then the properties of Grah (Planets) posited in this house, then Special lagnas, Upa Grah's, then Arudhas, well it does get complicated, but aren't our lives complicated..........

Aum Namah Shivaya!
