Introduction to Vedic Astrology
Vedic astrology is one of the oldest forms of astrology. It evolved over 5,000 years ago and is based on a body of knowledge known as the 'Vedas,' which translates to 'knowledge' or 'wisdom,' and is referred to as Jyotish -- the 'light of the heavenly bodies'. Today, Vedic astrology is acknowledged as one of the most powerful forms of astrology in practice and is followed by millions around the world.

While Western astrology is known for its emphasis on the psychological nature and personality of the individual, Vedic astrology's primary focus is on predicting cycles and events of the future, putting more emphasis on understanding when certain events are likely to take place. Vedic astrology gives a better view of: a person's karmic tendencies and when such tendencies are likely to manifest for that person through a unique system of planetary time cycles, called 'dashas,' for which there is no corresponding method in Western astrology. One of the aphorisms offered by this body of knowledge is: 'Avoid the danger that has not yet come.'

The planets in Vedic astrology are referred to as 'grahas' and ancient scriptures refer to them as the lords of karma and destiny. It is believed that the birth chart of an individual is based on their past karma, which is bestowed upon them by the nine planets. However, it is not Vedic astrology's purpose to replace an individual's responsibility to decide what is best for them. The role of astrology is to make one aware of the presence or absence of certain tendencies, and should be used as a tool for making better decisions.Ultimately, the purpose of astrology is self-knowledge, self-awareness and improvement.

Vedic astrology follows the same combinations of the houses, signs and planets as those in Western astrology. But for those of us familiar with the Western birth chart, there will be many differences. The Vedic birth chart is square, instead of the round chart wheel of Western astrology. The houses, signs and planets also take on different meaning under Vedic astrology. The more recently discovered outer planets -- Neptune, Pluto and Uranus are not considered in Vedic astrology for the purposes of interpreting a chart, however, the Lunar Nodes are. The North Node is known as Rahu and the South Node as Ketu. Each planet is also given rulership over a particular sign of the zodiac and it is referred to as its lord. The ruling planet transfers a large part of its influence upon the sign it rules, and is referred to continuously in chart interpretations. Planets form the center point of Vedic astrology.

Another major difference between the two is that Western astrology uses the Tropical Zodiac, which is based on the equinoxes. The beginning of the Tropical Zodiac or its first degree of Aries is always with the spring or vernal Equinox. Vedic astrology uses the Sidereal Zodiac which tracks planetary movements against the actual movement of the stars, and the first degree of Aries or the start of the Sidereal Zodiac starts approximately 24 degrees ahead of that of the Tropical Zodiac. So unless you were born between the 15th or 20th of any month, you will find that your Western Sun sign and ascendant, as well as some of the planets are moved back by one degree in your Vedic chart.

Western astrology considers the Sun as the center of our universe, and therefore the most significant influence in our lives. Vedic astrology, on the other hand, uses the Moon and the 27 constellations of the Moon -- called the Lunar Mansions or Nakshatras -- as the primary source of predictive techniques. The Sun represents one's soul while the Moon represents one's mind. Both are important, and both have a significant place in astrology.

Vedic science also recognizes that there are four aims or purpose in life - Kama, Artha, Dharma and Moksha. Kama literally means desire and signifies our need for emotional and sensory happiness in life. Artha can be translated as wealth, and relates to the fact that each one of us must have sufficient means to function happily in life. Dharma is our need for recognition in life, since we all need to be acknowledged for who we are and what we can do and contribute. Moksha means liberation or freedom and it represents our need for spiritual growth - we all must seek to go beyond who we are until we become one with all.

You are now ready to take a revealing look at your Vedic Birth Chart!

The First House -- The House of Self -- Your Personality and Identity

The ascendant -- or Rising sign -- always occupies the First House; it is also known as the Lagna in Vedic astrology. In Western astrology, one identifies themselves by their Sun Sign. In Vedic astrology, the ascendant is the main indicator of one's most personal characteristics and tendencies, and thereby the most important aspect of the birth chart.

The First House reveals your outlook on life and indicates how you project yourself to the outside world. It is the primary factor regarding confidence, self-confidence, self-esteem and self acceptance. It personifies life, longevity, self, nature, vitality, bodily appearance, character, early childhood, personality and fame. A strong First House helps you in your career, establishing self-identity, and is important for honor, integrity, fame or recognition. This is a house of dharma or duty and life purpose.

Your Ascendant is Scorpio -- Ruled by Mars
At the time of your birth, the sign rising on the eastern horizon was Scorpio. Mars rules your ascendant, and confers his traits on you. Ruled by the element of water, there is great power in you. For you there is no halfway, extremes the way you operate and you have a tremendous intensity.

Scorpio gives you a secretive, reserved and determined personality. It is difficult for anyone to understand what you are thinking at any given time, and it is nearly impossible for to comprehend the hidden depths of your personality. You have an ability to deal with intense stress, giving you the ability to stay cool even in the most serious of emergencies. You are also often authoritarian, inflexible, and find it difficult to change direction under adverse circumstances.

You are materialistic and you feel like, deep within you, there is a hidden treasure that you must uncover. This search will consume your life. In a way, you are intuitive about the result of most things in life, and this makes you different from those you compete against. You have intense concentration capabilities and do anything to complete the tasks in front of you.

You are highly committed to your duty, equipped with high degree of intelligence, imagination and determination. You give the impression of being a successful individual. Responsibility is crucial to you, as is a life of consistent luxury. You tend to be a highly private person when it comes to romance, letting your intensely magnetic aura speak volumes about your personality. You are be a highly physical person and mushy romance may not be your style.

On the negative side, it may be very difficult for you to walk away from emotional attachments before you are completely overcome by a paralyzing anger at the other person. You are too fixated about getting your way, not allowing anyone else to inspire your life and mission.

Planets in the First House
You have no planets in the First House.

The Second House -- The House of Livelihood and Wealth -- Your Resources

The Second House rules livelihood and accumulated wealth. It's connected to your earning capacity and ability to provide for yourself in life. It indicates the financial success and material resources that you will be able to acquire through your own efforts and labor. It also takes into consideration wealth through inheritance. General family happiness and domestic comforts are also represented here, as well as your intellect and powers of speech and imagination. Indicators of education and early childhood also appear here.

Primarily, this House deals with the resources you accumulate through your own efforts. Wealth, fruitfulness of investments, as well as your attitude toward property and chances of striking real estate jackpots comes into play in the aspects to this House. It also shows your attitude towards accumulation and stinginess. As you age and mature, this House expresses how you handle family issues. It deals with social networking and its usefulness in accomplishing important objectives in your life. This is a House of artha or wealth.

Sagittarius -- ruled by Jupiter -- Occupies Your Second House.
Because you're innovative, you always seem to have financial opportunities lying at your doorsteps. As Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius occupies your Second House of saved wealth, money often slips away as soon as it is earned. Optimism and an uncanny ability to replenish assets see you through seemingly hopeless situations. Because Jupiter rules both the Second and Fifth Houses, you are interested in speculation. You'll often make wise and profitable investments, but you are also foolhardy and incur heavy losses.

The influence of Sagittarius in the Second House makes you very generous in financial affairs, with a willingness to spend money on those who need it most. You may be a risk taker, but have a goal-oriented approach to life. You plan for future with focus and logic, so your income and wealth comes as a result of your long-term planning. You are farsighted in your financial acumen, and endowed with a 'killer instinct' where money is concerned.

You are a keen and cautious explorer of resources, which is the reason for your ethical approach to prosperity. You are concerned about your family and willing to suffer sacrifices for their happiness. You keep a keen eye out for lucrative deals to maximize your wealth. You also have a knack for identifying good properties, which appreciate quickly for a maximum return on your investment. Though, you have a detachment to wealth and once you can afford to live well, you never think about hording your cash.

On the negative side, you could be highly calculating at times, and completely unable to let go of grudges against former friends. In romantic relationships, you may appear to be too demanding, which may scare away your partner. A jealous streak in both personal and professional life will threaten your ultimate happiness.

Planets in the Second House

The Sun
The Sun is our sense of self and shows the level of our self-manifestation. The Sun governs our intelligence, perception, strength of will and character. It gives us endurance, stamina, vitality, positive spirit, direction, conviction, confidence, independence, leadership and straight forwardness. It also represents our ego and shows our impulses towards power, prestige, honor, fame, respect, authority and control -- all the things that give us value and our identity. It shows how we shine, where we shine and where we shine and as such affects our career and worldly activities. The Sun also rules our Soul and determines our spiritual life and our potential as an individual. It shows our aspirations, our creativity, our integrity and our ability to transcend external conditions. It reflects who we really are, and our search for our true self. The Sun also reflects the father, our relationship with him his influence on us.

Sun in Sagittarius
As Sagittarius is a fiery sign, and the Sun is a fiery ruler, the benefits to your life are quite clear. This combination makes you wise, intelligent and wealthy, with a healthy physique. You may also be popular, reliable and respected by all. Calm and appreciative of balance and peace in life, you may also have a strong focus on academia and learning.

The Sun in Sagittarius reflects the jovial and carefree qualities of your personality. You are very natural, expressive and enthusiastic almost in an innocent way. Luck favors you and your enthusiasm is natural and straight from the heart. You have religious inclinations and your moral standards are very high. Nature and travel are also very important to your life. Always ready to help, you are a favorite among friends and associates. Staying in one position or role for very long makes you crave change, often to the detriment of your career. You always want to be very good at whatever you do and aspire towards high achievements with an abundance of faith and enthusiasm. You possess a natural teaching or advising capacity, naturally good at motivating others.

The Moon
The Moon plays the single most important role in Vedic astrology. It is equal to or greater than the importance of the ascendant. The Sun and Moon are considered the two eyes of the universe. The Sun is considered the Divine Father and the Moon the Divine Mother. The Sun represents the Self or the Soul while the Moon represents the Mind. According to the Vedas, the human mind was born from the Moon. In this context, the mind represents the source of all emotions.

The Moon rules peace of mind, happiness, comforts, and the general well being and fortune of a person. Unlike Western astrology, where the Sun is the most vital concern, the focus of Vedic astrology is not on a person's deeply ingrained tendencies and abilities. It is rather on the benefits an individual reaps in this lifetime -- happiness and joy, worldly comforts, ease of life, affluence, and fame among other things.

The Moon shows our capacity to receive and to be affected. It also indicates our capacity to be hurt and indicates our general vulnerability. A strong Moon shows sensitivity, receptivity, maturity, responsibility and the capacity to have a beneficial effect upon society. The Moon reflects personality, and is a stamp of individuality. Its position and condition shows what you have been and how you can be. It can show positive resources from the past, which gives you a greater awareness in life. It can mean great enduring power and an automatic and active reflex to seek and find happiness in life. Ultimately, the Moon represents happiness in your life.

If the Moon is weak or afflicted, success becomes rather difficult to achieve, and happiness and the chances of a comfortable life are hampered. A badly placed Moon is indicative of a heavy mindset, poor family background or difficult childhood, poor educational background and other traumatic influences.

In a birth chart analysis, a thorough understanding of the Moon, the house placement, the house the moon rules and the aspects formed with the moon all go towards understanding the deeper emotional make-up of an individual. Essentially, the Moon Sign reflects the psychic core of you as an individual. The House where the Moon is positioned in the chart is paramount since it signifies our peace of mind, creature comforts, and other vital facets of our life. This is the most consistent indicator of where we will play out our karma.

Moon in Sagittarius
The Moon enjoys a very beneficial position in Sagittarius, which is ruled by Jupiter. This combination blesses you with a sharp intellect, a warm heart and a positive attitude. It also graces you with determination, a strong sense of independence, high ideals, as well as a love for travailing and learning new things. You are most likely a direct and distinguished personality who is also brave, energetic and courageous. You are focused on fulfilling your desires and grateful for your blessings. Prosperity, wealth, generosity, a willingness to help others and nobility are also qualities of this combination, along with a strong inclination towards are, culture, education and related matters.

There is a childlike innocence in you, which may appeal to the members of the opposite sex. Some may find you too soft. However, beneath all the soft and innocent qualities dwells a strong, righteous and truthful individual. You may have an innate desire to learn about religion, and may also seek a spiritual teacher. Overall, you are an idealistic with a strong sense of right and wrong. Your life partner has to be just as righteous for marital bliss. You are most likely to seek a relationship that is intellectually satisfying rather than a passionate love affair. Your romantic attractions will begin with the union of ideals rather than sensual passions. You love having beauty around you and your partner has to be just as warm and harmonious.

However, you do need to watch out for tendencies of extravagance, careless investments, flamboyance and over-indulgence. You might be too frank at times for your own good, and miss obvious opportunities for advancement.

Mars
Mars is considered a major malefic in Vedic astrology, capable of harming all planets or aspects that it combines with. It destroys through aggression, violence, impulsiveness, accidents and insensitivity. However, it also provides energy, drive, determination and the ability to put one's personal desires above those of others. If Mars is weak or afflicted in a birth chart, you will lack ambition and motivation, and success will remain elusive.

Mars rules courage and bravery and all military functions. This is also the planet of passions and desires, and is focused on sexual activity. Another function of Mars is to enhance mechanical or technical ability, ruling all professions that require work with the hands.

Mars in Sagittarius
Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius, promotes intelligence and knowledge, Mars adds energy and leadership to the combination. Devoted, frank and pleasure-seeking, you have the capability of being well-known and respected. However, you may have a confrontational nature and become easily entangled in quarrels.

Both Mars and Sagittarius are fiery, and the natural warlord aspects of Mars are highlighted here. This makes you highly spirited and enthusiastic, with natural leadership abilities and a general distaste for the lazy. While all this all sounds like a recipe for success, your relationships often suffer because of your energy and drive. Take care to be an attentive and understanding partner, friend and coworker for the best possible outcome.

Mercury
Mercury governs intelligence, speech, education and all mental pursuits. It is responsible for inspiring writers, lecturers, and teachers. It also rules trade and commerce, and is prominent in the lives of business people. Other matters dependent upon the condition of Mercury are the nervous system and self-confidence. When badly placed or afflicted, Mercury indicates a person who is nervous, overly excitable, conceited and insecure.

Mercury may also, without any malicious intent, cause harm in certain houses due to its superficial nature. Indian sages have labeled it as 'fickle, two-faced, and often conducive to detachment and an overly independent nature.'

Mercury in Sagittarius
Mercury heightens a sense of wisdom and intelligence when it is placed in Jupiter, which rules Sagittarius. You may be tall and well-built, as well as learned, respected and scientifically focused. You may even achieve acclaim and fame relating to your scientific intelligence.

Mercury in Sagittarius endows you with a range of talents. Intelligent and educated, you may become an expert on an area of study. Courteous and respectful to people of authority, you garner respect and favor with those around you. Your knowledge of statutory matters would be considerable and you may be especially interested in law -- even pursuing a legal profession. You have a philosophical mind and are very interested in active sports. You love to travel and take expeditions, which satisfy your thirst for knowledge and exploration.

Ketu
Ketu -- also known as the lunar South node -- represents vivid imagination, spirituality and escapist tendencies which can, in the extreme, lead to isolation, addiction and withdrawal from reality. It represents confusion, lack of direction and can create conflict in the areas of life it affects. Ketu is dishonest and aimless. The effects of Ketu in a chart are closely associated with Western astrology's view of Neptune. If Ketu is well-placed in a chart, great sensitivity and compassion will be present as well. However, a poorly situated Ketu will result in an inability to believe in oneself and, at its most extreme, total chaos.

Ketu in Sagittarius
Ketu is a fiery planet and when posited in this fiery sign, ruled by Jupiter, it enhances the planetary energy normally associated with Jupiter. But as Ketu is a malefic, its association may not result in a completely auspicious affect.

You enjoy holding many social functions at home and are known as a social person. Your level of integrity is above average and Ketu-Sagittarius energy is often associated with saintly people. You could hold responsible position of power in your life, and your reputation is beyond question. However, there may be times when your tendency to trust tricksters may compromise your position and result in loss. Detached from the concept of wealth, you do not crave materialistic fulfillment.

Care and concern for career and relationships is paramount for you. Likewise, your relationship with peers and coworkers will always be pleasant and productive.

The Third House -- The House of Brothers -- Your Self Expression

This House represents all the ways you use to express yourself. It shows your basic energy in life -- the impulses and intentions that drive you. The power of the Third House creates the will to reach ambitions and goals. It reveals your passion or zeal, along with your courage and boldness, which may also become rashness and impulsiveness.

The Third House signifies your younger brothers, sisters and your relationships with them. Your courage, enthusiasm, intelligence, thought process, mental strength, education (up to high school), how you relate with others in your formative years, ambitions, short journeys, ornaments, clothes, heroism, patriotism, health of younger brothers and their success and failure are all represented here. The Third House is also the ruler of adventures and reveals if one will lead a stagnant live or one full of activity, excitement and adventures This is also known as a House of kama or desire and it governs all your desires - whether they will be fulfilled and how much effort will be required towards those ends.

Capricorn -- Ruled by Saturn -- Occupies Your Third House.
You have difficulty communicating your feelings, which affects your rapport with siblings, friends, colleagues and neighbors. With a refined sense of concentration, you are almost obsessive about their interests. You are very serious, prone to depression and sometimes even reclusive. You are anything but exuberantly communicative.

Capricorn in the Third House gives you clarity for expressing your thoughts and ideas -- whether in written or verbal form. You have a reputation of being secretive and rarely write or say anything without a solid reason for doing so. While you choose your words with extreme care so that they deliver a maximum impact, you should also be careful that they do not result in harsh and exacting speech. It is quite possible that you'll never feel satisfied with your education.

You tend to be highly focused and not very communicative unless there is a need. You are generally a quiet person, and think twice before you speak. At times, people are more afraid of what you don't say instead of what you do. Your courage isn't visible from your appearance, as you may appear depressed at times, but it's there in the background, ready to be called on. You face crisis with a nonchalant attitude, but are fully focused on solving it. Once provoked, you could explode unexpectedly -- taking your opponent by surprise. On the other hand, are outwardly aggressive when it comes to achieving your goals. You are explicit about any of your endeavors since you are not an expressive person by nature. Your motto in life is 'Let my performance speak for itself.'

On the negative side, you can be quite lazy at times. Depression may also mar your progress. You do not want to move forward unless forced, and this can impact how others see you. You may be restless inside, with no idea on how to control it. Your fear of seeming weak may become an obstacle to your success. You are not a charismatic public speaker, as you mostly get swallowed up by pessimism.

Planets in the Third House

Venus
Venus is the planet of love. It is a benefic and enhances the house it occupies, as well as any planet it aspects or associates with. Like Jupiter, Venus bestows money, comfort and fortune on a person when it is placed in a significant or positive way. In addition to governing love affairs and married life, it also specifically rules happiness. Therefore, almost no other astrological condition can spoil the sweetness of life like an afflicted Venus.

Also the planet of beauty, sensuality and passion, a well-placed Venus is likely to make you sensitive, beautiful, magnetic and attractive to the opposite sex.

Venus in Capricorn
Saturn, ruler of Capricorn, is moderately friendly with Venus. Where the Venus energy is open and relating, Saturn energy is contracting. Because of this some of the natural Venus traits will be restricted, but not to an unfavorable degree.

Relationships and marriages may be delayed because of this combination. You may appear to be rather strict in dealing with those close to you. Unhappiness or dishonor is possible in love, but you will fulfill your obligations in all matters. This combination may also make you imprudent and ambitious. Be especially careful with your expenses.

You hold strong beliefs and live a strict lifestyle. Calculating and strict, you do not give leniency if you feel someone has been wrong. Your loved ones may find this suffocating and resent your controlling nature. However, you are just as strict about maintaining your affections. Your sense of responsibility is very high and your family ultimately benefits from your strictness. You may not display your romantic inclinations quickly and some may believe you to be fickle. Your sensible thinking keeps your demonstrations under control, and you never wear your heart on your sleeve.

Saturn
Although Saturn's very nature is to restrict, deny, and destroy, it's also capable of bestowing the greatest evolutionary qualities a person may experience. A properly aspected and well-placed Saturn indicates a person of wisdom, integrity, and discipline. It is especially helpful to those persons on the spiritual path who are diligently seeking perfection, as Saturn gives humility, patience, dedication and a genuine sense of freedom from worldly desires and pleasures. You should look to the dire aspects of Saturn as warnings you can use to avoid challenges, and truly grow from.

Saturn in Capricorn
Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn, and brings conservatism and stabilizing affects to your life, making you hard-boiled, industrious and with a steady nature. The naturally malefic nature of Saturn pushes you beyond the boundaries of what life would be otherwise.

You are endowed with leadership qualities, leading to a successful career and lasting wealth. You are intelligent, peevish, suspicious and revengeful, but virtuous. You fine literary tastes, respect others and are skilled at your work. Above all, you have the attitude that 'duty comes first.'

Saturn in Capricorn makes you very prudent. You never make any rash decisions that may cause trouble. You are likely to move through through life with great care, measuring every step you will take in future and have taken in the past. You would know how to increase your cash flow and have a materialistic nature. Unable to ever 'forgive and forgive,' you hold grudges against people for your entire life. This may lead to a naturally melancholy personality, as well as domestic problems.

The Fourth House -- House of the Mother -- Your Emotional Approach and Comforts of Home

In Sanskrit, this house is called 'Sukh bhava,.' It is the House of happiness and of mother and also conveyances or cars one may possess in life. It governs happiness, passions and the heart and any planets located in this House reveals the passions imagined in one's heart. A very important House, it plays a great role in the manifesting the life from within and begins its influence right at birth. Issues like upbringing, education and refinement in life can be seen in this House. It also depicts your connection with your home, as well as love for mother and family. It gives you a picture of upbringing, childhood and cultural heritage. It shows peace and happiness at home -- whether home provides peace and relaxation, or if it is a place of agony.

The Fourth House signifies mother, property, cars, domestic surroundings, happiness with family, inheritances, agriculture land and its products, permanent possessions, loss and hidden treasures. Parts of the body indicated by this House are the chest, lungs, stomach, elbow joints, major arteries and ribs. This House is, at the root of all things, associated with your material possessions, your soul, psychological roots, family and racial traditions, your home and your security and your property. This is known as a house of moksha or self realization and final liberation.

Aquarius -- Ruled by Saturn -- Occupies Your Fourth House.
With Saturn-ruled Aquarius occupying your Fourth House, you may have a difficult relationship with your mother, or may have simply been lonely growing up. As an adult, you may still be loners who would rather spend time alone than among large groups of people. Their higher education may have been interrupted and they may experience obstacles when it comes to real estate.

With Aquarius placed in the Fourth House, your drive for power urge for freedom may make you feel weighted down by the affairs of home and family. This could lead to domestic conflict, perhaps even an unusual home environment.

You are very concerned about your home and domestic matters, constantly looking to be center of attention. You may not have to work very hard at it, since your family members care deeply for you -- even when you are a terror to be around. Sometimes your efforts bring marvelous results, but at other times they fail miserably. You are interested in having a fine home full of luxuries, and you crave reinforcement that it's a wonderful home from outsiders.

On the negative side, your efforts to bonds with those you live with may be superficial, which may result in ridicule and conflict. This same approach could be evident in your management approach at work, and the people around may feel that you always have some ulterior agenda. At times, you may propose radical approaches to management, which may not be well received either.

Planets in the Fourth House
You have no planets in the Fourth House.

The Fifth House -- The House of Children -- Your Creativity, Romance and Children

This House represents your capacity to have children, and also reveals how you might relate to them. This House also relates to creativity and shows how you recuperate and recover from trauma and problems in life. It indicates wisdom, higher learning and good deeds. Problems in health, career, relationship, mental trauma -- the strength you find inside yourself to recover all stems from the Fifth House.

The term 'Putra,' or children reveals the primary purpose of this House, but you should also consider the other forms this term might indicate. On another level, it reveals your creative intelligence and capacity for original thinking. If imaginative planets are associated with this House, they can bless artistic fields such as music, dance, painting, poetry, or fashion.

This House signifies children, speculation, intellectual status, luck, pleasure, legal or illegal hobbies, social inclinations, romance, religious bent and wisdom. It governs your love affairs and romance - the quality of romantic love you are likely to receive in this life. This is the House of self-expression, and shows how your efforts distinguish yourself from others. The parts of the body indicated by this house are belly, heart, liver, spleen and gall bladder.

This is a very auspicious house and it indicates past life credit. Good deeds or lack of them from a past life show up in this house and is an indication of the rewards from a past life that is due in this lifetime. This is a house of wealth and fortune and shows our capacity to gain through speculation and investments like the stock market or even gambling, and how we gain through what we can produce, create or imagine as well through recreational activities. Also this is a house of morals and merits and denotes a person of ability, integrity, humility and other fine qualities. This is a house of dharma or duty and life purpose.

Pisces -- Ruled by Jupiter -- Occupies Your Fifth House.
You will have joyful experiences with your children, who are instrumental in your life, and from whom you'll learn a great deal. You are attracted to the arts and either participate in, or patronize, sporting events, concerts, theater and dance performances. Although you have sound financial opportunities, you may be attracted to more high-risk, speculative investments. It is important to weigh each situation carefully before making a decision.

Pisces influencing your Fifth House indicates an urge to be creative. You have a strong desire to create something so special that it leaves a mark in the world. You seek fame, but beware that failure does not lead to frustration, disappointment or disillusionment. Ultimately, failure could lead to depression.

You are very magnetic -- especially with the opposite sex -- and you are dreamy in romantic matters. Your sex drive is above average and your romantic decisions could stem from it. With a similarly driven partner, this could be a potent combination, but with a less-sexually driven partner it could spell disaster. Your creative urges are profound, even addictive at times. You exhibit an intelligent and deeply philosophical approach towards creativity, which may turn out to be highly valuable. You follow your creative urges when making choices regarding your education. In some cases, you may tend to become obsessed with impractical ideas, so a constant reality check is necessary to stay grounded.

In parenthood, you will dote on your offspring. They will both love you and fear you, and they fulfill something deep inside of you. When your children are away, you will feel a profound sense of sadness.

On the negative side, you could turn out to be extremely indulgent -- both with your children and your partner. You may spend money like it grows on trees, but later realize that indulgence never brings happiness -- that the dreams that you harbor in your heart can never be achieved with money.

Planets in the Fifth House

Jupiter
Jupiter is the planet of luck and fortune. It has an expansive, optimistic energy that benefits whatever planets or houses it associates with. It rules opportunity, prosperity, affluence, and money, and reveals so much about the benefits someone has earned from the activities in their previous lives. Vedic astrology is based on the theory of karma and reincarnation, which states the good luck or rewards in this life are a direct result of actions taken in past lives.

Jupiter in Pisces
This combination is very auspicious, as Jupiter is located in its native sign. You are likely stout, of medium height and have a soft and gentle face.

You could attain a position of power and gain a good amount of wealth in your life. You have the respect of your friends, peers and superiors thanks to your enterprising, diplomatic, and polite nature. Everything you do is well-thought out and admired by your circle of acquaintances.

Jupiter in Pisces blesses you with financial security and farsighted aims. You are naturally charitable and enjoy a sense of solitude, though you are uniquely suited to positions that make you of service to mankind. You are naturally compassionate and hold great regard for a higher purpose in life. However, you could be indecisive and suffer from lack of conviction, unable to stand firm in your opinion and tending to 'go with the flow.' In moments of crisis you are calm, but from a sense of detachment. This may upset your family, who often feel insecure and lost despite your wealth and success. You may have an unpredictable streak, which may appear as rebellion and a lack of discipline. Though you may be stout, you will also not be naturally fit, and will need to work on this throughout life.

Sixth House -- The House of Enemies -- Obstacles You May Face

The Sixth House, Shatru Bhava, is the house of enemies. It indicates opposition, difficulties and obstacles in life and can give many problems. The Vedic concept of a life of fulfillment connects a sense of harmony with a defined mission. Planetary influences here are important for showing your physical constitution in life. More specifically, Sixth House represents the immune system. While a healthy Sixth House provides the promise of a strong immune system, a weak Sixth House may make you fall prey to physical disorders or digestive troubles.

It is a House of power and impulse and indicates the effect of the abuse of power either directed to us or through us. The Sixth House gives skill and intelligence but seldom the recognition for them. It is a House of effort and shows our capacity for labor. This House also signifies your profession, duties, practical tasks, how you relate to employees and subordinates, distant relatives and foreigners, debts, obstacles in life, mental worries, theft and calamity, pets, enemies and efforts. The parts of the body indicated by this house are kidney, large intestines, uterus and anus. This is a House that signifies artha or wealth.

Aries -- Ruled by Mars -- Occupies Your Sixth House.
The effect of Mars-ruled Aries occupying the Sixth House predisposes you to chills, colds, fevers and headaches. Due to the impulsive nature of both Aries in the Sixth House and a Scorpio ascendant, you may have had an uncommon number of cuts, bruises and burns due to minor accidents during childhood. You may have conflict with colleagues and though ambitious, you may find it more practical to work for yourself.

Aries in the Sixth House makes you a very determined and hard working person with a tendency to perform your duties sincerely. However, your critical nature may lead to tension with your co-workers, subordinates and employees.

There is a danger of pent-up anger exploding to the surface, as you always want to secretly maneuver into a better position. When things do not go according to plan, you erupt with frustration and revenge. Your aggression usually will result in unhappiness for you. Constant tension may lead to litigations. Your aggressive approach with subordinates may result in their non-cooperation. Since you are not capable of accepting rebellion from those working under you, this may lead to series of squabbles and trouble in your day-to-day life. You also want to parlay every move you make into a personal gain, but this may not be a realistic expectation. To do well in life, you must focus on giving constructive shape to your aggression, using it in positive ways to fuel your own progression in life, instead of using it as a weapon or for self-indulgence.

The Seventh House -- House of Partners -- Your Relationships

The Seventh House rules marriage and male/female relationships. In more broad terms, it's the house that covers all relationships with common goals, such as live-in relationships, business partnerships or other kinds of alliances. This may include joint ventures, foreign partnerships or even business arrangements based on sharing rewards. It defines the interpersonal relationships in close-knit groups, where either everyone succeeds or fails jointly.

As the House opposite the ascendant -- or self -- the Seventh House represents one's ability to relate with others. As the house of relationships, this house signifies matters regarding your spouse, partnerships, marriage, agreements, conjugal happiness, contracts, business partnerships, public deals, litigations, divorce, honor and reputation and residence in foreign countries and your social nature. This is also the House of your social consciousness and cooperation -- or the lack thereof. Parts of the body indicated by this house are the private parts of the body, uterus, glands, lumber and vertebrae. This is a House of kama or desire.

Taurus -- ruled by Venus -- Occupies Your Seventh House.
Since the conservative sign of Taurus inhabits your Seventh House, you'll generally bring old-fashioned values to your romantic alliances or marriages. Because you see marriage as an ultimate commitment, you are cautious when choosing partners. Once you are in love and finally decide to marry, you become passionate, jealous and demand loyalty and fidelity. Because Venus rules the Seventh House, you seek partners who are comforting, loving, patient and good-looking. In return, you are reliable, generous and faithful.

Taurus in the Seventh House produces a partner that is easygoing to a point, but rigid, firm and sometimes stubborn. Marriage will usually be successful, though it may become stormy. Marriage and other partnerships often bring you material gains. You may have a loyal, jealous partner, but you will also be very possessive of your partner.

You tend to build stable relationships, which are based on faith and trust. You have a supportive partner or spouse and your conjugal life proceeds smoothly. Your sensual urges keep your relationship very physical, something that is important to the both of you. Your approach to sex is earthy and simple, and you avoid anything radical or unconventional. You seek financial stability through your spouse, so you provide support and encouragement for their career. Nature and luxury are important to you, and you'll want your partner to share in your love of lovely, natural vacations and homes. You could manage business partnership that may lead to financial prosperity.

On the negative side, you have expectations of your partner that may not always be fulfilled. Though you may normally keep your cool, this may sometimes lead to violent and angry outbursts directed toward your partner. Rather than keeping things pent up, let your feelings be known regularly, and gradually.

Planets in the Seventh House
You have no planets in the Seventh House.

The Eighth House -- House of Death or Mysteries -- Sudden Developments

The Eighth House is known as the House of destruction. One of the most difficult and profound Houses, it's also considered the most inauspicious house of the zodiac. In Vedic astrology, the meaning of this House is expanded to include all types of mysterious influences on our lives.

This House has always been considered as the most malefic house of all. It is the most important factor behind longevity, as well as any life threatening situations. This house signifies diseases, death, longevity, psychic ability, knowledge of psychology, fear, misfortunes, inheritance, gain from in-laws, gain from your spouse, finances through unfair means, internal sex organs, mental pain, obstacles, property of your partner, etc. As the house of joint resources, it represents the possessions that are not earned, but obtained through relationships and inheritance. It rules your partner's money and indicates the problems that may arise in a partnership through the handling of money. For a woman, it may indicate the alimony they will receive and for a man the money he might have to pay. The parts of the body indicated by this house are the pelvic, bones, and external genitalia. This is a House that signifies moksha or final liberation.

Gemini -- Ruled by Mercury -- Occupies Your Eighth House.
With Gemini occupying this house, you have an instinct for successful financial dealings. This quality enables you to initiate innovative projects, raise financial backing and to be successful managing their own business (or those of others). They may, however, be manipulative and not always ethical.

The influence of Gemini in the Eighth House makes you curious about the mysteries of life, and may lead you to take an active interest in related subjects. You have a very sharp and penetrative mind that dives deep into the unknown to solve complex problems. You also have the ability and ideas to handle joint finances successfully.

You detest shallow, frivolous and immature people, and being approached by such people may make you angry. If current friends display these traits, you will not hesitate to sharply criticize them -- possibly leading to fights and disagreements. No one is perfect, but as you discover any sign of selfishness in a friend, you may end the relationship. You may have great interest in thrillers, ghost stories or spy movies. You prefer to earn money through the stock markets, lotteries or any other speculative areas where you can make a quick buck. You may also be obsessed with inheritance and insurance money.

On the negative side, you must avoid any addictions to betting, speculation or gambling, as they have the potential to cause financial ruin. You may often avoid telling the truth, and this shortcut in difficult situations may become a way of life. You may also consider spying on friends and romantic partners to justify jealous feelings. Both of these tendencies will lead to fighting and eventually, the end of the relationship.

Planets in the Eigth House

Rahu
Rahu -- also known as the North node -- bestows technical skills and talents. It represents materialism, compulsiveness and intensifies any planet or sign it comes into contact with. Rahu is relentless, highly disciplined, dissatisfied and, at times, dishonest. The effects of Rahu in a chart are closely associated with Western astrology's view of Pluto. If Rahu is well-placed, it brings power and material success. If poorly situated, there may be greed, ruthlessness and violent behavior in your life.

Rahu in Gemini
Rahu is a malefic energy and causes hidden desires to surface, causing life to be ruled by a sense of insatiability. When positioned in airy Mercury, ruler of Gemini, Rahu enhances natural Gemini tendencies.

You may have a strong interest in performing arts. Media, music and other forms of performing arts are the vehicle for your success. By nature, you are cunning and look after your own interest first. Well-spoken, you also have wandering disposition and it is this sense of restlessness that may lead you to change life paths quite often. Constant changing might lead to pointless struggle and debts.

Problems with siblings or attacks from enemies trouble your peace of mind, and you may seldom feel happy. Despite your constant sense of restlessness, you may do well in jobs that include relating to the masses. This restlessness could also cascade into job changes, which should be properly and carefully evaluated to ensure that you are progressing in your career instead of regressing.

Your father may have been home-loving, artistic or musically inclined, but found it difficult to express their feelings.
