Effects of First House of Birth Chart | Astrology readings

Ch. 12. Effects of Tanu Bhava | First House of birth chart

Chapter twelve of BPHS (Brihat Parashara Hora Shashtra) deals with the method of astrology readings of first house and the results of various influences over first house of birth chart.

1-2. Physical comforts. Should Ascendant Lord be conjunct with a malefic, or be in sixth, eighth or twelfth house, physical felicity will diminish. If he is in an angle, or trine there will be at all times comforts of the body. If Ascendant Lord is in debilitation, combustion, or enemy’s sign, there will be diseases. With a benefic in an angle, or trine all diseases will disappear.

Ascendant’s angles (i.e. fourth, seventh and/or tenth houses), or its trine (Fifth, Ninth houses), containing a benefic, is a powerful remedy for all, related to health.

3. There will not be bodily health, if Ascendant, be aspected by, or conjunct with a malefic, being devoid of a benefic aspect.

4. Bodily Beauty. A benefic in Ascendant will give a pleasing appearance, while a malefic will make one bereft of good appearance. Felicity of the body will be enjoyed, if Ascendant is aspected by, or conjunct with a benefic.

5-7. Other Benefits. If Ascendant Lord, Budh, Guru, or Śukr 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 Ascendant Lord is in a Movable Sign and be aspected by a benefic Grah. One will be endowed with royal marks (of fortune), if Budh, Guru, or Śukr be in Ascendant along with the Moon, or be in angle from Ascendant. If Budh, Guru, or Śukr be in 4th, 7th, or 10th from Ascendant, or be in the company of Ascendant lord in Ascendant, the native will enjoy royal fortunes.

8. Coiled Birth. If there be a birth in one of Mesh, Vrishabh and Simh Ascendantas, containing either Śani, or Mangal, the birth of the child is with a coil around a limb. The corresponding limb will be in accordance with the Rāśi, or Navāńś, rising.

9. Birth of Twins. The native, who has Sūrya in a quadruped Rāśi, while others are in Dual Rāśis with strength, is born, as one of the twins.

10. To Be Nurtured by Three Mothers. If Sūrya and Moon join in one and the same Bhava and fall in one Navāńś, 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 should base the effects on Moon also, as are applicable to Ascendant. 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 Rāśi 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).
