In Astrology there are 12 houses, which are like 12 major areas of our life. Amongst those, some houses are considered Benefic, whereas some are considered Malefic.
Let’s simplify it even more, let’s say we are working in a team of 12 people on a project, out of those 7 are those who support and help us, whereas 3 are non- well-wishers, who don’t appreciate the work of any team member. So how our life changes when 1 of the “Goodies “comes in power VS one of the “Badies” becoming the leader.
Well 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 9th and 10th are considered as benefic houses and 6th , 8th , 12th and partially 3rd , 7th and 11th houses are considered malefic.
So If the Dasha of 2nd house lord or 11th house lord starts then supposedly, its meant to give you amazing result with your bank balance, finances and success amongst large group of people.
However, we need to also see where this Lord is present from your Natal Moon.
So let’s say this is your Natal Chart :
The Dasha Starts for the Lord of 5th House. So where the number 5 is written is your 5th house and the lord of ruler or controller of the house is Sun. So if the Dasha of Sun starts , since it’s a “Benefic “ House so you will think it will give very good results and the significations of 5h house that is (Romance, creativity, education , peace of mind etc.) will work out fine and you will make a good progress in these areas.
But, here is a twister, it is 8th from the Moon. Your Natal Moon is placed in the 10th House and if we tilt the chart and make it from the Moon Chart then Leo (5th House) is 8th from it, which certainly means that there will be major changes and transformations in your life when you run the Dasha of Sun.
Now, the main question that arises is will these changes be positive or negative. And the position of Sun in natal chart will give you the answer of this, and Sun is in the 7th House in the sign of Libra where it is debilitated (Weak at its Karakatvas).
With an example, Sun is a leader and the sign of Libra is the sign of masses (other people), hence a leader falls weak when he has to take opinions of others by working in a Team. Hence certainly in spite of being the Dasha of 5th Lord, this transit will not be very comforting for this individual.
Thus, when we assess a Dasha we have to see it with Lagna and Moon chart both. In this case since from Lagna the Sign of Leo is 5th , from Moon its 8th , this means that you may be going through negative changes relating your education, love life and creativity when we combine both the aspects.
The myth that benefic house Dashas will always give good results is exposed !
