Comment pls explain good and bad consequences of mars in 7th house and saturn in 1st house. where 1st house being scorpio and lord of 7th house ( tarus in my case i.e venus ) is placed in 4th house from ASC (aqu)

Comment This refers to the question of Shri Sanjay Sharma.
The following pointers might be helpful in explaining the question he has posed:
The native in question has Kaala Sarpa Yoga – all planets sandwiched between Rahu and Ketu, which is very bad.
He has debilitated Saturn in 8th house. He had Saturn Dasa from Feb. 1972 for 19 years, after which he had Mercury Dasa for 17 years till 2008. Mercury is no better being Ascendant lord placed in the 12th. He is now running Ketu Dasa upto Feb. 2015. Ketu is a participant in the Kaala Sarpa Yoga. Thus, he hasn’t had a favourable period in his life so far.
His Mars in 11th is debilitated. Besides, it is in the star of Jupiter in the 12th (vyaya).
His Lagna (Ascendant) is afflicted by the Rahu-Ketu axis.
He hasn’t had Moon and Mars Dasa-s yet, for which he has to wait till 2041 and 2051. So, there is no point talking about the yoga in the 11th house. Even if that period comes, Mars’ debilitation will affect the results adversely.

01-Jul-2012 06:15 AM

Comment Dear Sir,

What I understand from Joytish is like a excuse game. Some one predict some thing and if not happen then give number of excuses. I dont understand why people predict general things where as the game is so specific.

Check one horoscope
DOB 21st August 1968. 08.27AM. at Kanpur U.P.

This person has mars with moon ( own house) in 11th House. ( Kanya(Virgo) Lagna)
As per your site he should have

Mars in the 11th house

Besides enjoying financial prosperity, the native will become a man of manifold activities.

If conjunct with the lord of 11th – Head of a township.
If conjunct benefic – - Prosperous brothers, very good Raja yoga is formed, prosperity.

Where as i knew this person is fighting for his bread and daily expenses

Any suggasation.
