ARI BHAVA- 6TH HOUSE- HOUSE OF ENEMIES/SERVICE/DISEASES/PUNISHMENT
Ari meaning Enemies, the 6th house denotes the strength, status and level of Enemies one will have in his/her life, so it is always better to have a debilitated, malefic in this house, and the force needed to overcome or conquer this enemy is seen from the strength of the Seventh house, so it is desirable to have a strong Benefic or Auspicious Malefic like Mars or Sun, which would help to destroy the enemies once for ever, it is very funny thing that even children with a bad combination experience this effect, so it is very important to weaken your 6th house, but with caution so that is should not effect you health wise, because 6th house is also the house of Deceases.
Other combination for enemies is the 7th house from Al ( Arudha Lagna), if this house is loaded the native will face open enemies, who will go all the way out to express themselves and in that case if the 8th house has Auspicious Mars or a Strong Benefic, the enemy can be subdued.
The Ari Bhava or 6th hosue relates to Enemies, service, servants, relatives, mental tension, injuries, health, diseases, agriculture, accidents, mental affliction, mother’s younger brother, hips.
If the 6th House is aspected by Saturn and occupied by Mars, the native will have fear from enemies.
Occupation, or aspect of benefics will keep one free from such fear. The number of enemies (causing trouble) will correspond to the number of planets posited in the 6th House.
Effects of Grah/Planets in 6th House:
If the Sun is in 6th, the native will be very libidinous, will have powerful digestive fire (capable of digesting fast), be strong, affluent, famous for virtues and be either a king, or an Army chief.
If the Moon be in 6th, the native will suffer stomach diseases. If it be the weak Moon, he will be short-lived.
If Mars occupies the 6th, the native will be highly libidinous, will have powerful digestive fire, be beautiful, tall, strong and great among his relatives.
If Mercury occupies the 6th, the native will always be successful in litigations and disputes, will contract diseases, be indolent, not given to anger, be harsh in speech and much insulted.
If Jupiter is in the 6th, the native will lack digestive fire and masculine virile, be humiliated, weak, indolent, will become famous on account of females, will destroy his enemies and be widely famous.
If Venus occupies the 6th, the native will greatly dislike his wife, will have many foes, be devoid of wealth, be very much startled and be mean.
If Saturn occupies the 6th, the native will be very licentious, be beautiful, courageous, will eat abundantly, be crooked and will conquer many of his enemies.
If Rahu occupies the 6th : When a Malefic occupies the Dusthana ( 6, 8, 12th) the natural effects of those houses are neutralized and in fact the native derives good effects from that house in a way by not having the bad effects.
The influence of Police, underclass, outcast, foreigners, manipulators, thieves, liars, physicians, drug dealers, prostitutes, loan sharks and many other type of conflict agents are amplified in the natives life, the effect will be good or bad depends on the Rahu's lord being good or bad.The native must learn to manipulate the manipulators, and in case of severe sickness might find cure in a distant foreign land.
If Ketu occupies the 6th: The Ketu in 6th house subdues the general understanding of the native in case of human behavior, particularly the negative part or the immoral part, there by the native is a sitting duck for the human predators like, criminals, police, domestic animals, servants, quack doctors, loan sharks, any other form of exploitation, because the defensive shield of these natives is very thin or not present.
In case of sickness or any ailments the native has a gift of knowledge of medicine so they mostly cure themselves, they lead and win almost all the discussions and arguments, no matter how heated and hot they may be.
The native might be very dear to relatives, and is usually very large hearted, and very skilled, reputed and might enjoy good fame and honor, the main problem is from humans who can be very unfaithful, destroyer of enemies, but prone to accidents involving small animals.
The native with Rahu or Ketu in 6th House needs to take lots of precautions because they are prone to being taken for a ride by the very people they trust, I will suggest do not leave a single stone unturned and make sure, every loose end is well tied up and not dangling, it is not very bad, again it depends which house is the 5th or the 6th house.
Scorpio as the 6th house with Ketu in it, it is the own house of Ketu but, Rahu will be placed in 12th in Taurus and it is again the Permanent house of Rahu, where Rahu gets all the freedom to exercise his talents, and in this situation, Ketu looses its freedom and is kind of follower of Rahu, at least for 42 years, when Rahu matures, but during these 42 years, the life will be like a continous formula one race.
Have fun if you can, because there is no escape from this situation, but again it depends on the other Grahs and Planets and their strengths and positions, like Mars if with Rahu, almost no effect, or Sani aspects Rahu etc. Ya! you guessed it right, I have Rahu in 12th (Taurus) and Ketu in 6th (Scorpio), reason for interest in Chemistry and Pharmaceutical industry etc.
Though I have been very careful, but still I got into very filmy situations. :-)))))) Curtsey- very close friends- well at least I thought like that......
Aum NamaH Shivaya!
