Chapter 28 –House of Debts and Enemies

     The sixth house from the ascendant is called house of enemies, disease, and litigations. These are the three main things we can know from this house.
     If the lord of the sixth house is exalted or in own house or in friendly house then the above mentioned things would be favorable to the native. If debilitated or in enemy house then would get unfavorable results.

In north Indian charts, the house next to the fifth house in anti-clockwise direction is sixth house. From the natural order of zodiac sign marked in the ascendant, we can derive which zodiac sign is sixth house. For example if the ascendant is marked with 4 then the fifth house would be Sagittarius.
