For some families, even enormous amount of wealth will not be suffice, they incur a lot of expenditure, and need to take loans. They will be unable to clear the loans. They are not ashamed of begging for money, no matter from whom. They are always in want of money throughout their life. Let us analyze why this situation really crops up.
Association of Rahu to the 2nd house
• Rahu in the second house or
• Lord of the second house in association with Rahu.
Normally in these combinations, the native receives wealth from the death of parents, sister, aunt or wife, either as an heir to the wealth or as donation. As soon as this wealth from destruction reaches his house, the above-mentioned resultant effects are seen in his life. The second reason for such situations in a man’s life are also due to the fact that this native father or grandfather have forcibly taken away somebody else’s wealth. So the wealth has a miserable soul’s intense desire over it and it continues to curse the person. These people would continuously see them in their dreams.
Fourth house signifies the wellbeing of the mother, the house, the property, and splendor in life. So this house is also known to be the bhava of happiness. When a papa graha (malefic) is present in this house, he can never be happy. Writers of shastras believe that Guru is also considered fully weak in this position. When a person contemplates upon the most important position in a horoscope, one tends to look at the fourth position. A couple might have a lot of property, but may not have any children at all. So the couple are left alone to enjoy their wealth and this is disheartening. Sometimes people have a lot of money, but do not have good health to enjoy the property or wealth. They are eternally sick. Will that man be able to enjoy comfort in his life?
Despite acquiring status in life, how will a person be happy, if he has a spouse who is argumentative, has affairs with others and is arrogant? The clear answer to all these questions is that this person can never be happy. Power, authority, respect, lots of wealth, splendor etc. have no meaning, if the person is unable to receive mental and physical comfort in life. What is the purpose of all that splendor and wealth? Napoleon Bonaparte is the perfect example for such a case. There are so many such examples in our society. Therefore, when we compare to all other positions of a horoscope, the fourth position seems very important. I have come across several instances, where members of the family are very intelligent, trustworthy and have an excellent conduct; but can never make progress in life, despite several efforts. They always encounter destruction and poverty; they lose their beloved ones. their progeny is destroyed, they are sick of life, conflicts in the family result in suicide or leaving the country.
Rahu’s influence and adversity to the 4th house
1) Rahu in the fourth house.
2) Rahu in association with the lord of the fourth house.
3) Rahu with Sun, Moon or Saturn in the fourth house.
When these combinations are seen in the fourth house, we can clearly understand that the family has not seen any progress or elevated situation for three generations. The situation in the house has always been worsening, with sudden death, death for no reason, problem with spirits or dissatisfaction among members. These situations occur, when someone born three or four generations ahead had committed murder, used poison, committed suicide or left the country because of severe problems. The property or wealth of this person induces horrifying situations and results in the “brahmahatya dosha”. This dosha or sin is passed on to several generations. This person always sees several ancestors in his dreams. The moment he sees them, he tends to scream and but cannot shout in fear.
Some people also see food, organization of a huge lunch or dinner, a wedding or an occasion of celebration in their dreams. lt has also been observed many times that houses adjacent to the houses of such people are also destroyed or they too are reduced to poverty. People influenced with brahmahatya-dosha can never make any progress in their life. Some people are happy for some time with the adoption of a child, but then they lose all the property or the entire property is destroyed. I visualized the following, while I was contemplating upon this kind of situation. Once upon a time A and B belonged to one family. They separated after sometime and they fought over the property. A tried to kill B and tried to forcibly take over the property, B while dying, had a desire to avenge his enemy which remained unfilled. After some years, ‘A’ is born into the same family and remains childless. ‘B’ also takes birth in the same family and reached ‘A’ as his adopted son, to fulfill the desire of his, previous birth. At first, it looks as if he is very happy, but after sometime ‘B’ destroys all the property, for absolutely no reason at all and the family becomes poor.
Someone unjustly takes away a responsible person’s property and sends him away from the house. He does not receive food and shelter and dies a miserable death. The dead person’s miserable soul curses the family and makes it miserable too. In this context of curse, the person’s family is suffering because of the Rahu in the fourth house. (When Rahu is in die masculine rasi, problems are due to the curse of the male and when ii’ is in the feminine rasi, it is the curse of woman).
In society, there are several instance when some people do not marry or are unable to get married. Marriage for some people has no meaning at all. In some instances, husband never sees the face of the wife or the couple are separated, or the woman has affairs with other men in the presence of her husband at home. The husband notices it, but just ignores it.
In such cases, if we try to analyze, we observe the following combinations. When Rahu is in the seventh house from the lagna or in the seventh position from the Chandra, the family might have an instance, where a chaste woman was called a prostitute and harassed. The curse of this chaste woman does not allow the comfort of matrimony. One must seriously consider the effect of this Rahu before confirming or it might create problems. However, as an exception to this when Rahu is in the seventh house, both husband and wife seem to be very calm, thoughtful, persons of good conduct and friendly. The abovementioned unfavorable effects are also seen, when there is a combination of Saturn and Mars.
