Do you know 6th house lord period may give difficult times in life? (Vedic Astrology)
Go back to 6th house topics
The Mahadasha or Anterdasha of 6th house lord is often not good because it is one of the three Dusthana houses in Vedic Astrology. It is a house of difficulties in life. The type of difficulties will depend on the zodiac sign falling on the 6th house. Below are the signs falling on the 6th house and the difficulties it may give during the Mahadasha or Anterdasha.
1) Aries Sign on the 6th house: This may get you into physical fights with someone as Mars rules the 6th house and Mars is a soldier. This is more so if your Mars is debilitated in the sign of Cancer in the 9th house and if malefic planets like Rahu and Saturn together are aspecting the 9th house from the transit. The fight may be related to religion and law as 9th house is of religion. Mars is energy which gives you the willpower to show aggression. You may also suffer from physical injuries as Mars represents injuries.
Plz note: you can consider the aspect of Saturn and Rahu together (double transit) as I mentioned above in all the below cases as well on the house where 6th lord is placed.
2) Taurus sign on the 6th house: Here Venus rules the 6th house and so you may get into disputes with some woman as Venus represents females in general in Vedic Astrology. It could even be your wife or girlfriend. She could be someone at your workplace especially if Venus is placed in the sign of Virgo (debilitated Venus) in the 10th house of workplace.

Accidents through vehicles are also possible. You may also get the disease of Diabetes.
3) Gemini sign on the 6th house: Here Mercury rules the 6th house and so the problems will be related to intelligence, communication or 'marketing and advertising' because Mercury represents all these things. For example, if Mercury is placed in the 7th house (debilitated Mercury) you may find it difficult to interact with people as 7th house is the house of interacting with the people and your intelligence may also go haywire. Also, you may have to speak a lot or chat or email or write a lot over the internet and it will be a real hard work for you. You may also get into troubles like speech disorders or Logorrhea. You could also face troubles related to travel and transportation.
4) Cancer sign on the 6th house: Here Moon rules the 6th house and so the difficulty could be related to mind or mother as both represent the Moon. Your mind could go crazy during the period of the Moon. This could be due to a lot of burden in your mind related to your business. But this is more so if your Moon is in the sign of Virgo in the 8th house. The placement of the Moon in the sign of Virgo could make you even more crazy with your mind. Giddiness (Chakar Aana) may be the result of it. Also, you may suffer from the disease of Diabetes due to the excessive use of mind. You may also get into troubles like Vascular Dementia in the old age. Blood pressure problems, strokes, and cancer also likely as Moon represents our heart and blood.
5) Leo sign on the 6th house: Here Sun rules the 6th house and the native could face an ego problem during the period of the 6th house as Sun represents our ego. There could also be a case of hidden sexual relationships if Sun (lord of 6th house) is placed in the sign of Libra (debilitated Sun) in the 8th house. Sun loses its dignity in the sign of Libra in the 8th house and becomes immoral and you may face insult in the society because of this. The problem may also come related to the government as Sun represents the government and there could also be a lot of arguments and fights with your father as Sun also represents the father. Bones related problems are also likely as Sun represents bones. Your education may also suffer if Sun is not well placed in the birth chart as Sun represents education.
6) Virgo sign on the 6th house: Here Mercury rules the 6th house and the problem could be related to debt, disease, and competition (such as exams and internships) during the period of Mercury (or 6th house). If Mercury is placed in its own sign Virgo in the 6th house it could get you crazy due to a lot of mental work (excessive use of your logical mind) related to accounting, coding, mathematics, and auditing. You may also face poverty as Virgo is a sign of poverty. If Venus is placed in the sign of Virgo in the 6th house and if Mercury is debilitated in the 12th house you may lose (or give away) a lot of your money in Charity. You spend a lot of your time in perfecting everything (when Mercury is in Virgo) and this takes a lot of your efforts during the period of 6th house. You become too much health conscious and fitness freak and so will be doing a lot of exercises and this may create some sort of physical problems in your body.
7) Libra sign on the 6th house: Here Venus rules the 6th house and Libra is a sign of relationships, contracts, and partnerships. Your business may face a lot of turbulence during the period of 6th house (or Venus) if Venus is not well placed in the birth chart. If Venus is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Virgo then you may lose your services or business contracts as 5th house is 12th from the 6th house of service and so it is a loss of your job or services or business contracts. Anything 12th is a loss. If Venus is placed in the 7th house in the sign of Scorpio the native could engage himself/herself into illegitimate sexual relationships. Also, fights and arguments during the marriage can happen as Libra is also a sign of marriage.
8) Scorpio sign on the 6th house: Here Mars rules the 6th house and the native may face troubles related to sexual organs such as the disease of piles (Bawaseer) as Scorpio is a sign representing our private parts. If Mars is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 2nd house the person can do frauds or cheating with the family wealth or related to money in general as Mars becomes immoral when debilitated in the sign of Cancer. The sign of Scorpio is also a sign of change so you could lose your job many a time as 6th house represents the job or service you do.
9) Sagittarius sign on the 6th house: Here Jupiter rules the 6th house and the native could face troubles related to law and religion especially if Jupiter is placed in the sign of Capricorn in the 7th house. You may also get into arguments and fights with your teachers or Gurus. If you are someone like a lawyer then such fights will be legitimate. You may also get into problems while on long-distance travel such as the pilgrimage or related to higher studies in foreign countries so be careful.
10) Capricorn sign on the 6th house: Here Saturn rules the 6th house and the major problem related to Saturn is the back pain and so the Leo rising people need to be careful about this trouble. If Saturn is debilitated in the 9th house it could also make the native a monk (sadhu or sanyasi) in the period of 6th house. In case, Saturn is placed in the sign of Leo in the first house this could make the native extremely egotistical if Sun is not placed along with Saturn. The native may also face problems related to authority and power. Injuries may also come from sports if Mars is placed in the 6th house.
11) Aquarius sign on the 6th house: Here again Saturn rules the 6th house and this Saturn may make the native work extremely hard in the customer care as the sign of Aquarius represents the customers in business or even if you are providing services. This Saturn can also give troubles in the old age if the period of Saturn (Mahadasha or Anterdasha) falls in the old age and if Saturn is placed in the first house in the sign of Virgo.
