One experiences poverty if the following yogas (combinations) are present in one’s chart:
NOTE: The 2nd and 7th houses are maraka (killer houses). Their lords are marakas (killers). Any malefics occupying 2nd and 7th or associating with 2nd and 7th lords also become malefics.
Lagna lord is in 6th and 6th lord is in lagna. They are conjoined or aspected by a maraka planet.
Malefics occupy lagna without 9th and 10th lords, aspected or conjoined by marakas.
Lords of the signs occupied by 6th, 8th and 12th lords are in 6th, 8th and 12th houses, conjoined or aspected by malefics.
Lord of the sign occupied by Moon in navamsa is with a maraka or occupies a maraka house (2nd and 7th).
Lords of lagna in rasi and navamsa are conjoined or aspected by marakas.
Benefics are in malefic houses and malefics are in benefic houses.
Sun in 2nd is aspected by Saturn. (Exception: If Saturn doesn’t aspect, Sun in 2nd gives wealth.)
The general principles emerging from the above combinations are:
Dusthanas (6th, 8th and 12th) and their lords are detrimental to wealth. If lagna, lagna lord and trine lords are afflicted by them, one may be poor. Conjunction or aspect of marakas clinches the issue. However, conjunction or aspect of trine lords is a saving factor. In addition, the planets in the 2nd house and the strength of 2nd lord matter.
