Astrology Article 5: Importance of 4th House from Ascendant – A Vedic Astrology Analysis


Fourth House from the Ascendant in Vedic Astrology is a Kendra house. In Vedic Astrology there are 4 Kendra Houses i.e the First House, the Fourth House, the Seventh House and the Tenth House. Generally, when we discuss about the fourth house, we speak about our HOME and MOTHER. Fourth house also deals with family bonds and the native’s relation with family.

Fourth House in Vedic Astrology signifies one’s dwellings, gardens, fields & properties which are not movable. It also refers to one’s ancestral house in which one is born. Fourth House is also one of the Kendra House and is a powerful house in terms of happiness, comfort & success. Fourth House also refers to wells and thus signifies water and fluids.

If there is an aspect by malefic planets, fourth house then denotes moving away from one’s home or living far from one’s birth place. Fourth house also refers to old castles, monuments or masterpieces of architecture. If you are fond of vehicles then one has to analysis this house for ownership of vehicles. Hence, fourth house signifies vehicles & conveyances. It also determines native’s popularity amongst masses.

Fourth house is always treated as one of the most important house in Vedic Chart and stands for happiness, comfort and the native’s capacity to take rest. In some ways the fourth house also rules holy places and moral values. Consequently a good fourth house means good mind, intellect, high qualification, high school and collegiate education.
Any astrological planet placed in this house and in a friendly sign will give positive results. If the fourth house lord is weak and is sitting with a malefic planet, then the native will tend to go into argument. Fourth Lord in a tenth house is likely to take profession in vehicle or real estate sector.

The above write-up is a general prediction and these are my personal views, which may not match with other astrologers. This is based on my years of experience on reading this subject and looking into the practicalities of the situation based on horoscope analysis for all these years.

Astrology Article 2: Importance of First House in Vedic Horoscope


Whenever a horoscope is analyzed, an astrologer tends to look into the native’s first house. Each of the houses in Vedic Astrology determines one or more aspects in life and represents some parts of the physical body. It is said that the degrees up to the cusp of that house from the beginning of a sign represents the left side or left parts of the physical body. Rest of the degrees represent the right side of the physical body. Some scholars may vary this aspect.

To me personally, the first house or Kendra house plays a very important part in one’s life. This house refers to one’s physical body, its complexion, its strength, its appearance and stature. It also denotes ones temperament and ones character, dreams and knowledge. The first house also determines one’s longevity though there are other houses which determine those. A strong first house also makes one free from diseases.

If the First House Lord or Ascendant Lord is strong, then the native will be born in a well to do family and will be blessed with an attractive physical appearance. Also there is a need to mention here that the native will suffer less from diseases unless the First Lord is weak and 6thLord, 8th Lord or 12th Lord sits in the First house.

Personally after seeing many horoscopes, I have come to the conclusion that the First House means ones Atma or Soul. It’s like searching the essence of your birth and is manifestations of all your past karmas or deeds. It basically denotes your inner wishes which may one or other time surfaces from ones subconscious mind. So, what happens when your first house is represented by Mars (Mangal Graha)? Let’s analyse the same in details:

a) Mars owns two houses in a vedic horoscope. One is Aries and the other is Scorpio. Each of them will affect differently any native, since one is an Airy sign and the other is a Watery sign though both are ruled by the same planet Mars. In the case of Aries Ascendant Mars also rules the eight House i.e Scorpio (Vrishchik Rashi). Here Mars sitting in the first house also transfers its energy to the Fourth House i.e Cancer Sign. Hence these people if not under the aspect of Planet Jupiter (Brihaspati) or Jupiter not sitting in the first house will be moderate built and will be a fighter and self motivator. They will try to overcome all challenges in their life, through their own efforts and hence these people are generally great sources of positive energy to connect with. Some of the natives may be short tempered and they do make enemies in the world. If Mars is not in a good position, the native may suffer due to their short temper or may be prone to accidents or surgical operations. However, they rise again to create their own empire. Their Atma /Soul provides them with enormous energy to move ahead in life. A well placed Mars for Aries Ascendant/Lagna proves beneficial to the natives and will help them to live long. Such Aries Ascendant people also becomes good sportsman and may have water body, water reservoir, dairy farm etc near their house.

The First house and its Lord hence become very important as without self, a native do not have any further existence. Hence a powerful owner of the first house or a powerful first house placed in a very good position can bestow a long life to the native. It is also said that if the owner of the first house is stronger than the sixth house, then good health is bestowed to the native, though there are other parameters.

Some interesting facts which I have observed is, if the Ascendant house/ Lagna house is accepted by planets like Jupiter or Moon, the native tends to get a bulky body. Generally, it is also seen that if owner of the first house is weaker than the owner of the 12th house, then it is difficult for the native to accumulate great wealth.

Basically it’s called the ascendant house or the Lagna house and from this house calculations are made for the other houses.

The above write-up is general prediction and these are my personal views, which may not match with other astrologers. This is also based on the 10 years of my experience on reading this subject and looking into the practicalities of the situation based on horoscope analysis for all these years.

There are other 9 planets which are also moving or placed in different houses in your Vedic horoscope and each one will effect you differently. As per my previous article, Mahadashas will also matter in personal Vedic predictions based on personal analysis of horoscope. So, in short there are many parameters which actually determine ones destiny and the above astro reflections are my personal views and the same may or may not happen with you. As it is rightly said that your destiny is your hard work and luck which makes things possible.
