Chapter 34 –House of Foreign Travel

     The twelfth house from the ascendant is called house of foreign travel,loss, discharge of debts etc. These are the main things we can know from this house.
     If the lord of the twelfth 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 eleventh house in anti-clockwise direction is twelfth house. From the natural order of zodiac sign marked in the ascendant, we can derive which zodiac sign is twelfth house. For example if the ascendant is marked with 4 then the fifth house would be Gemini.
