Planets have different effects in different houses. This effect may be benefic or malefic depending upon their placement in exaltation/ debilitation, Moola- trikona, own house or natural friend’s/ enemy’s house. This effect may be favorable if it is under the influence of natural benefic planets like Jupiter, Mercury, Venus or Moon; or unfavorable, if it is under the influence of natural malefic planets like Saturn, Rahu, Mars, Sun or Ketu.
Let us start enumerating the effect of different planets in the First House or the Lagna or the Ascendant which is primarily a kendra bhava and secondarily a trikona bhava. Since the First House or the Lagna signify the self and the personality of the native, it becomes the most important bhava of any native. The characteristics of the planets placed in the Lagna influence the physical features and nature of the native. Also, if benefic planets are placed in Lagna, then they enhance all good things in life, name and fame and also income from various sources. Malefic planets placed in the Lagna give quite contrary results.
The effects of different planets in the First House are as follows:
The natives with Sun in the first house are generally knowledgeable, intelligent, learned, wise and ambitious. They don’t hesitate to take initiative and, thus, become the natural leaders. They acquire considerable wealth and are less spoken.
They are not flexible in their approach and, generally, lack the forgiving attitude. They may suffer from eye or heart diseases. Sun in the first house is not favorable for marital life.
The natives with Moon in the first house are handsome with strong built. They are clever and intelligent enough to succeed in their materialistic pursuits.
In case of weak or afflicted Moon, they remain restless and indecisive. They are prone to ear diseases.
