Sources of wealth in the chart - Part 1

Let's look at finances from several different angles, exploring where financial possibilities could be in your individual chart.

Lagna or ascendant is an important wealth indicator. Strong and well placed ruler of the 1st house will give a person strengths and ability to project themselves in the world. Lagna is the house of the Self. So when the lagna ruler goes to a specific house, it connects the self with the significations of that house. Naturally, lagna ruler positioned in dusthanas ( or difficult houses ) 6, 8, and 12 will create difficulties in person's ability to project the self. On the other hand, 1st house ruler in 1,5,9 and 4,7, 10 will give greater chances of increasing wealth due to the strength of the lagna.


When we look at finances in the chart, we study Jupiter - significator of money. Its dispositions will determine person's relationship with money and how they view finances in general.

Strong and well positioned Jupiter will give one a natural sense of abundance, an attitude that Universe provides. Jupiter is considered strong in Sagittarius, Pisces, and Cancer, as well as when it is positioned in money houses 1,2,5, 9, 11. With Jupiter strong, you might feel like money come naturally to you and you do not need to sweat too hard to make them.


Weak or debilitated Jupiter, when it is in Capricorn, 6 or 12th houses, can produce overall feeling of scarcity and lack in life. It results in beliefs such as "I will never have enough", "money come only through hard work and effort", "nothing is free", etc. Subsequently, it can make a person highly motivated to make money due to feelings of insecurity about them.

Jupiter is the planet of opportunities and wealth, so its position in the chart instantly points to the possible source of money. Check your Jupiter position and see if you are already making money through significations of the house:
