3 min readSep 23, 2022


Please Note: This is general prediction and results may vary based on aspects | conjunction | strength of planet, rashi placed etc.

As we know Sixth house is First of Dusthasthana Houses (houses ==> 6, 8 and 12) and Second of Upachaya Houses (houses ==> 3, 6, 10 and 11). It represents things like diseases, debts, obstacles, enemies, disputes, daily routine life, colleagues at work place etc. One thing to remember here is that it is one of Upachaya Houses which improve with time. It means any planet in these houses improves in results with age and real good result is seen from a person’s 30s or 36s. Also, all the malefic planets provide very good results in Upachaya Houses but results may be seen in 30s or 36s.

Also, as we know about Seventh house, it is house of marriage, spouse, marital happiness, market place, other people (masses), business partnerships, agreements, etc.

दारेशे रिपुभावस्थे भार्या तस्य रूजान्विता।

स्त्रिया सहाअ्थ वा वैरं स्वयं क्रोधी सुखोज्जितः।।

When 7th lord comes in 6th house it means it is 12 from its house [bhavat bhavam]. This is considered the most difficult position for the 7th lord to be in. This combination also produces a very greedy, cunning, and selfish character.

Your spouse would be in the same career as you, would be of foreign origin or from a different cultural background since the 7th lord is sitting 12 places away. You will look for and get a spouse who is in Service Industry, means they have a regular job/office life.

Your spouse’s daily routine may be to deal with Conflicts or Diseases. So, this planetary position is seen most commonly in charts of people, whose spouse is either in Legal field or Medical field. Spouse may get triggered or angered easily because of nagging nature.

At times, it is a placement for Doctor/Lawyer couple. In certain situations, it also shows that marriage life is going into disputes or disagreements. So, it is one of the situation that may cause a Divorce but for that to happen, you need a malefic planet in 6th house as 7th lord, in bad dignity and person having dasha and transit of same planet in such houses which cause divorce. So, this is not generic rule, but can be analysed in detail with whole charts. But yes, it can be said that you face lots of obstacles in married life during certain dashas and transits.

Your spouse would help them deal with money problems (debt), and health issues but could also have an adverse effect on your life depending on the ruler of the 7th house. The given combination causes thirst for materialistic gains because the 7th belongs to the triangle of desires while the 6th belongs to the triangle of wealth.

You may be suffering from loan regarding his profession. You may be angry by nature and without any sort of happiness. Maternal uncle may be wealthy. Your younger brother/sister may be very intelligent.

The cunning and deceptively competitive nature of you cause a lot of disturbances in partnership ventures (7th) as well. As a result, you may face disputes and litigation with work or business partners. In addition to that, as the 6th denotes servants or employees, if you are in business, it indicates disobedient employees who cause trouble behind the back.

Moreover, if you are employed, it indicates enmity with team members who cause trouble to you secretly which causes lot of challenges, struggles, and obstacles to you. You can be reckless and disturbed from mind. Spouse may be jealous in nature. There may be lack of harmony between you and your partner. You tend to secretly break the rules and make illegal steps for selfish purposes mainly in professional matters.

You may face disputes and litigation with work or business partners. You may face losses due to excessive loans that are taken without prior consideration whether it is necessary or not.
