What if 7th lord is in 12th house for a Taurus Ascendant? (Vedic Astrology)
Home : Vedic Astrology: You are here
For example, if Mars is placed in the sign of Aries but in the Nakshatra of Krittika then this placement could make you someone in police or army or even a terrorist as Krittika Nakshatra is symbolized by cutting tools like Axe and Razor which also means using weapons like sword, gun and baton in the real world nowadays. If Jupiter is debilitated in the 9th house then this could be a terrorist or some wrong person such as rapist unless there is Neech Bhang Raj Yog occurring in the birth chart as in that case Jupiter cannot be considered as debilitated.
Mars in 12th house is not considered good in general as then it leads to behind the scenes (or hidden) activities and that could even be a secret sexual affair or rape or too much indulgence in sexual bed pleasures. This is more so possible if the ascendant lord Venus is also placed in the 12th house along with Mars as > Mars and Venus conjunction > makes the native very sexual especially if it is happening in the 12th house.
For a Taurus ascendant, Mars is the ruler of 7th house of relationships and that is the reason hidden or secretive or behind the scenes relationships are possible when Mars is placed in the 12th house of isolation and privacy. Also, 7th lord Mars in the 12th house in Pada 1 of Krittika Nakshatra could make you a sportsman as in sports also you use tools like a cricket bat, racket, etc to play and show aggression.
Also, 12th house is 6th from the 7th house which means competition, fights, and arguments in > one to one interaction > as anything 6th represents that only and 7th house is also the house of > one-to-one interaction. But, with this placement, marriage relationships or business partnership may also suffer and there could be divorce as 12th house is 6th from the 7th house which means obstacle in marriage or divorce as anything 6th is also an obstacle. Mars is a separative and aggressive planet and so divorce is also possible.
You are cut-throat and follower of law when Mars is in Krittika Nakshatra pada 1 as Jupiter rules the pada 1 of this Nakshatra and Sun rules this Nakshatra which is a hot and righteous planet. So you could also be a Lawyer or detective or investigator with this placement. You should look at the position of Jupiter (ruler of pada 1 of Krittika) and Sun (ruler of Krittika) in the birth chart and that will give more idea. For example, if Sun and Mercury are placed in the 5th house and if Jupiter is placed in the 8th house in the sign of Sagittarius then it could get you in sports. But remember we here are still considering 7th lord Mars in the 12th house. But since Mars is energy it could also make you move to foreign places or foreign countries with this placement for business purpose or for sports. Your spouse could also be from a foreign country with this placement.
7th lord Mars in the 12th house but in the Nakshatra of Ashwini
There are also people who are long-distance truck drivers or taxi drivers or any private vehicle driver and such people may also have their 7th house lord, Mars, placed in the 12th house in the sign of Aries but in the Nakshatra of Ashwini as this Nakshatra represents horsepower which means vehicles that run through the burning of fuel (internal combustion engine).
Also, 12th house is the house of distant places and Aries sign, falling on the 12th house, is a sign of moving and physical activity which itself shows moving to distant places and that is only possible through vehicles, train, and airplanes. People who are into sports race cars or a bike race or horse running may also have this placement. Also, there are people who go for mountaineering, trekking and hiking and for other sports activities in isolated and far off places then such people can also be seen from this placement especially if the 11th lord Jupiter is also placed in the 12th house along with Mars.
Also, Ashwini Nakshatra is Ketu ruled Nakshatra and Ketu is headless or brainless and Ketu doesn't think as there is no wisdom or discretion in Ketu as Ketu is headless. So, people may go into fights and even may kill someone especially if the 7th lord Mars is placed in the pada 1 of the Ashwini Nakshatra in the sign of Aries in the 12th house. Pada 1 is ruled by Mars and so it has its negative side too but on the positive side it could also be the placement in doctors who are surgeons and save the lives of people in trouble through sudden injuries as Ketu is also about going to the roots of human body as it is also the significator of 8th house of surgeries.
People who are in boxing usually have this kind of placement as the boxers simply attack without thinking like Ketu. Also, 7th house is the house of > one-to-one interaction and there are many sports where there is one-to-one interaction such as wrestling, cricket, badminton, tennis, etc. and here 7th house lord is placed in the 12th house. People who are in athletics can also be seen from this placement.
Ashwini Nakshatra is actually of healers as this Nakshatra is symbolized by > 1000 physicians to the Gods. But healing also means rescuing people who are in trouble. For example, many times there are floods, earthquakes, fire, war, etc and during such emergencies, the military is needed and so people in the military or other such people who help during times of emergency such as firefighters are also seen from this placement.
There are many instances where you move like a headless chicken here and there. For example, when you lose your purse sometimes in the crowd. In sports like football you move here and there the same way like a headless chicken and headless is Ketu and so people having Mars in the Ashwini Nakshatra (ruled by Ketu) also play a lot of football and many of them are into dancing as when you dance you again spin like a headless chicken. Dancing and creativity are more so possible if the 7th lord Mars is placed in the pada 2 (ruled by Venus) of the Ashwini Nakshatra in the 12th house for a Taurus Ascendant. People who are into the development or use of headless software or in general people who are in the world of information technology also have this placement of 7th lord Mars in Pada 2 of Ashwini Nakshatra.
All sports where there is a lot of risks involved is usually seen from this placement due to the headless nature of Ketu ruling the Ashwani Nakshatra. Also, there are people who either write or communicate a lot about all the different sports events or sudden events happening around the world and such people usually have their 7th lord Mars placed in the Pada 3 of the Ashwini Nakshatra as this pada 3 is ruled by Mercury and Mercury is all about communication and writing. They may also write a lot about health care or healing in general.
But such people usually get into trouble for their writing whether in newspaper or media or blogs and social networking sites as they usually don't think about the consequences (like Ketu) when they write and this sometimes gets them into trouble with the law. Their energy of Mars goes into communication or writing and they usually publish very aggressive or motivating news. These could also be those investigative journalists who are even willing to take the risk of their life to anyhow get the news for publication. They even visit dangerous and risky places to get the news.
If the 7th lord Mars is placed in the sign of Aries in 12th house but in the pada 4 (ruled by Moon) then this placement is often found in people who are into the engineering or repairing of household products such as air conditioner, air cooler, washing machine, geyser, juicer mixer, furniture, clothing, etc. This is because this pada is ruled by moon and Moon is all about conveniences of home and Ketu, the ruler of the Ashwini Nakshatra, is about going to the roots of everything as Ketu and Mars are the co-rulers of the 8th house of engineering (going to the roots).
7th lord Mars in the 12th house in the Nakshatra of Bharani
If the 7th house lord, Mars, is placed in the sign of Aries but in the Nakshatra of Bharani then this Nakshatra is more about coming of a new life as this Nakshatra falls on the sign Aries and Aries is the beginning of a new life as Aries comes just after the sign of Pisces which is a sign of end of life (as 12th house is end of life). In olden days, this placement was mostly found in women (Dai Maa) who used to help in getting pregnant woman give birth to her child with ease. Nowadays this placement is often found in people who are gynecologists as they do the operation for the delivery of the child.

Since this Nakshatra is about death and rebirth many butchers are also seen from this placement as they kill animals to get the meat out of them and meat is Venus as it is meant for sensual pleasure and Venus is the ruler of this Bharani Nakshatra. So this is also a possibility especially if 7th lord Mars is placed in the pada 3 (ruled by Venus) of Bharani Nakshatra. The cooks are most common people seen from this Nakshatra as Bharani means > Bharan Poshan > which is a Hindi language word which means serving food.
The medical career is also seen from this placement of Mars in the Bharani Nakshatra in the 12th house for a Taurus Ascendant as you need to cut frogs during the study of science which involves death and anything related to death and re-birth may be associated with the Bharani Nakshatra such as gravedigger, funeral service worker, mortuary makeup artist, hospice aides, forensic pathologist, forensic science technician, mortician, clergy, fertility specialist, obituary writers, fields related to sexuality, working with pets, childcare, hotel and restaurant business, hunters, etc.
