Vedic Astrology Birth Chart
The sign of Cancer represents our emotions and feelings and it also represents what everything is going in our mind (mun main kya hai). 6th house is really the house of difficulties, problems, disputes, arguments, diseases, debt, competitions, complications, etc. Now when the sign of Cancer falls on the 6th house it shows the mind or the emotions and feelings of an Aquarius Ascendant could be towards the diseases of others or self (that is the reason many Aquarius are into the medical field) or there is always disputes or arguments going in the mind (antar-dwand). This mostly happens with a businessman where the mind has to take a certain decision and not sure what to do and what not to do.

That is the reason Aquarius Ascendant, in general, are prone to giddiness (chakar aana) as the mind goes through a lot of complications due to the Cancer sign falling on the 6th house of difficulties. Moon represents the blood and so there could be a lot of problems related to low or high blood pressure especially if Rahu is placed in the 6th house and the lord of 6th house Moon is also placed here and having aspects from malefics like Mars and Saturn. Cancer sign is a very emotional sign and when this sign is affected it takes you to the left side which is nothing but depression and then it also sometimes causes the disease of Cancer.

That is also the reason somehow the disease Cancer and the sign of Cancer in Vedic Astrology owns the same name. Yuvraj Singh, the Indian cricketer, has his Rahu falling in the sign of Cancer in the 6th house (as he is an Aquarius) and he also once suffered from the Cancer disease but he recovered from it. So, people having Rahu in the sign of Cancer are most prone to left-sided diseases like Cancer, depression, blood pressure, giddiness, mental problems, etc. Moon represents the past and Sun represents the future.

The difficulties of the 6th house also mean doing some detail-oriented or complicated or difficult work. But here since the sign of Cancer falls on the 6th house it means doing detail-oriented or complicated work using the mind as Cancer is ruled by Moon which represents our mind. If suppose, Aries sign had fallen on the 6th house then the complicated work would have been physical like boxing or training in the police or competitions in sports.

Now when Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 6th house the native gets obsessed about doing complicated work with the mind but the results will differ according to the placement of Moon (ruler of 6th house or Cancer in the birth chart). So let's discuss that.

Possibility 1: When Rahu is placed in the 6th house (in Cancer) but if Moon (lord of 6th house) is placed in the sign of Leo in the 7th house then here the mind could do a lot of complicated tasks (as 6th house is of complications and Moon rules it) in the fun and entertainment world as Leo represents fun and entertainment. For example, when you play video games it is nothing but fun and entertainment and in the game, you are using the mind to fight with the enemies or we can say you are involved in performing complicated tasks, within the game, with your mind.

But since the sign of Leo also represents education you could also be involved in resolving problems and difficult tasks involved in your education especially if Sun (ruler of Leo) and Mercury are placed in the sign of Virgo in the 8th house as Virgo is a sign of difficulties in the studies while Leo is the knowledge itself (studies). For example, all the knowledge of mathematics is Leo but all the problems that come in resolving the problems of mathematics are represented by the sign of Virgo. So Virgo (original ruler of 6th house) is a very difficult sign.

Possibility 2: When Rahu is placed in the 6th house (in Cancer) but if Moon (lord of 6th house) is placed in the sign of Virgo in the 8th house then here 6th house lord is placed in 8th house which is 3 places away and anything 3rd is showing skills of your hands or communication or marketing and advertising. Here your mind, in the 8th house, could do complicated and difficult tasks in the medical field as Virgo is also a sign of health and healing and 8th house is also the house of surgeries.

So this placement could even make you a surgical doctor especially if your Saturn is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 10th house and the lord of the 10th house, Mars, and Mercury are placed in the 8th house of Surgeries. Here you are using your skills of hands to perform the surgery. But, with this placement, you could also be a scientist who does research and investigation in the medical field.

Saturn in the sign of Scorpio does the action (as Saturn is action) of surgeries (as Scorpio is a sign of surgeries) especially if Mars is placed in the 8th house of surgeries.

Possibility 3: When Rahu is placed in the 6th house (in Cancer) but if Moon (lord of 6th house) is placed in the sign of Libra in the 9th house then here 6th house lord is placed in 9th house which is 4 places away. Since 6th house is of arguments and disputes (as I mentioned earlier) and since Moon (mind) is controlling your 6th house and when 6th lord is placed in the 9th house then here your mind is into resolving the arguments and disputes related to law and legal matters as 9th house in Vedic Astrology is law and religion as Jupiter rules it in the default zodiac. This could even make you a Lawyer or in some profession related to legal matters if other planets in the birth chart are supportive as virgo is a sign of disputes while Libra is a sign of resolving those disputes and also Libra is a sign of diplomacy.

Chitra Nakshatra is a Nakshatra of creativity and two Padas of this Nakshatra also falls in the sign of Libra. If your Moon is placed in this Nakshatra in the 9th house then you could also become an artist (designing and even coding such as programming) and when you make art there are a lot of complications involved and this makes perfect sense as your Moon is ruling the 6th house of complications. But you could be an artist in any field of life (such as using photoshop for web design) depending on the location of other planets in the birth chart. This is because the 9th house is also the house of publishing. When you write 3rd house is involved but you also need to publish of what you have written and 9th house is meant for that. It doesn't matter whether you publish art or a book or publish on a website.

Possibility 4: When Rahu is placed in the 6th house (in Cancer) but if Moon (lord of 6th house) is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 10th house then here the 6th house lord is placed in the 10th house which is 5 places away. Here the mind is more into the physical world. This is usually the placement you will find in people who work on machines to create or manufacture something. You might have seen those workers working in factories of different businesses. You could be one of them with this placement of Moon. Scorpio is a sign of tranformation and when you manufacture you actually tranform the raw material into finished products. So you could be a businessman with this placement of Moon.

Possibility 5: When Rahu is placed in the 6th house (in Cancer) but if Moon (lord of 6th house) is placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 11th house then here the 6th house lord is placed in the 11th house which is 6 places away. This placement of Moon could really make you a public speaker or someone who teaches something to a group of people like a teacher teaching the students. There are many people who represent the masses such as the stage performers, Gurus, Saints, internet (or offline) marketers and advertisers (as they represent a large audience over the internet), motivational speakers, social workers, etc. But you could also be into customer care in a company as the 11th house represents the customers or public in general.

Possibility 6: When Rahu is placed in the 6th house (in Cancer) but if Moon (lord of 6th house) is placed in the sign of Capricorn in the 12th house then here the 6th house lord is placed in the 12th house which is 7 places away. The 12th house is the really the house of spirituality and healing and you express spirituality through music and dance and there are also ways to heal someone through spirituality. This placement of Moon could make the native a musician especially if Mercury and Moon are placed in the sign of Capricorn in the Nakshatra of Dhanistha as this Nakshatra has a symbol of "musical drums". Mercury represents our skills of hands and in the sign of Capricorn, it could make you a musician like a drummer, guitarist,etc. but Saturn must be placed in the sign of Gemini in the 5th house for this to happen.

But this placement of Moon could also make you a sportsman especially if Mars, Moon, and Mercury are placed in the 12th house and Saturn is placed in the 10th house in the sign of Scorpio. Saturn can really make you a sportsman in the sign of Scorpio especially if the lord of Scorpio, Mars, is placed in the sign of Capricorn. The soldiers protecting our country at the borders also have this kind of placement of the Moon. But if your Moon is placed in the Nakshatra of Sravana in the sign of Capricorn then it could also make you a counseller or a recruiter or a politician or some social worker.

Possibility 7: When Rahu is placed in the 6th house (in Cancer) but if Moon (lord of 6th house) is placed in the sign of Aquarius in the 1st house then here the 6th house lord is placed in the 1st house which is 8 places away. Here the Moon is involved in performing the complicated tasks in the field of engineering. You could be a software engineer or network engineer with this placement or even a civil or automobile engineer. But it could be any engineering depending on the location of Moon in different Padas in each Nakshatra. This is a strong placement to be in the information technology as the sign of Aquarius is mostly about networking and it is through networks only information technology works. But you could also be a social worker or a healer. Also, those people who do the repairing of different electronic items can also be seen from this placement of Moon.

Possibility 8: When Rahu is placed in the 6th house (in Cancer) but if Moon (lord of 6th house) is placed in the sign of Pisces in the 2nd house then here the 6th house lord is placed in the 2nd house which is 9 places away. This placement of Moon could make you artist, singer, spiritual healer, psychic, music and dance, occult science, brilliant writer, kundalini awakening, etc. Moon in the sign of Pisces in the 2nd house makes a person very imaginative and intuitive. When you have that intuition power all the original things and original research comes in your mind. But the sign of Pisces is also a sign of working from behind the scenes. So you could also be connected with mass media with this placement of Moon. You could also be into film making.

Possibility 9: When Rahu is placed in the 6th house (in Cancer) but if Moon (lord of 6th house) is placed in the sign of Aries in the 3rd house then here the 6th house lord is placed in the 3rd house which is 10 places away. This is really a great placement to be in the media such as the television or internet as a cook or in the food competitions. This is more so possible if your Moon is placed in the Bharani Nakshatra.

You see there are also people making youtube videos and websites on travel, cooking, and food and through that, they are making money from the ads shown through their youtube channel. This is entirely possible with this kind of Moon placement if other planets in the birth chart are favorable. Also, you could be a motivational speaker over the internet with this placement of Moon. Vivek Bindra is a good example of that who is a business coach and a motivational speaker. But you could also be a sportsman especially if Mars (lord of 3rd house) and Mercury are placed in the 8th house in the sign of Virgo and Saturn is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 10th house.

Possibility 10: When Rahu is placed in the 6th house (in Cancer) but if Moon (lord of 6th house) is placed in the sign of Taurus in the 4th house then here the 6th house lord is placed in the 4th house which is 11 places away. Here the mind is accomplishing complicated tasks in the distribution of beauty products or luxury items in general such as clothing, shoes, belts, goggles, etc. There are many companies like Amway where you do the networking and distribution of their health care and beauty products to grow your downline and make money even from your referrals. This is often called Multi-Level Marketing(MLM). You may be involved in such networking with this placement of Moon. You may also be a distributor of luxury cars and homes with this placement of Moon. You could also have a website or youtube channel over the internet related to electronics and all the latest technology. With this placement, you could also sell your products on social networking sites.

Possibility 11: When Rahu is placed in the 6th house (in Cancer) but if Moon (lord of 6th house) is placed in the sign of Gemini in the 5th house then here the 6th house lord is placed in the 5th house which is 12 places away. Here the mind is doing a lot of communication or marketing and advertising from behind the scenes or writing a lot in isolation.
