Money in the Vedic Birth Chart

Skanda LakshmiVedic astrology is renowned for the sureness and accuracy of its declaration. Here is a summary of the basic indicators for wealth in the Vedic birth chart.

What is your attitude to money??? Do you attract Abundance???


Jupiter and Venus rule wealth and money. They are karakas (indicators) for wealth and prosperity. , so check their Houses, Ruler and other occupants for favourable or negative indications.

Remember: Exaltation is the strongest sign and Debilitation is the weakest sign for these Planets
Jupiter strongly placed brings prosperity and stability. But Jupiter badly placed can behave like a first-rate malefic. Jupiter in 6th house is bad (dusthana) but potentially gets better with age (6th House is Upachaya). Jupiter is exalted in Cancer, Mulatrikona in Sagittarius and Debilitated in Capricorn. Jupiter rules Pisces and Sagittarius. Debilitated Jupiter (e.g. Jupiter in Capricorn) brings poverty and financial pessimism.

Venus is the only planet that prospers in the 12th house. Venus in the 12th will bring wealth and money. The stronger by sign the better the wealth. Venus is strongest in Pisces, Libra and Taurus. Venus is exalted in Pisces, Mulatrikona in Libra and Debilitated in Virgo.


The Houses for Money are 2, 11, 9, 5 and 8, counted from Lagna (Ascendant).

2nd House: income and financial matters, how you earn your money.

11th House: great gains, large sums of money that come in all at once. The Ruler of the 11th house indicates our fortunes potential and sources.

9th House: of luck and fortune.

5th House: speculation and intelligence, stocks, trading, and creative pursuits and talent. Planets occupying the 5th house can bring money through speculation, sports, entertainment or creativity.

8th House: inheritance, money that comes through others.

1st House:  Connections with any of the wealth producing Houses can bring money to you. Connection of any of the wealth-producing Houses to your 1st House is crucial.


The planets that rule Houses 2, 11, 5 and 9: These are your money planets, in the different ways/sources indicated above.

8th House: The ruler of the 8th House will not bring money, but planets occupying the 8th House can indicate money through inheritance or marriage.

Planets occupying Houses 2, 11, 5 and 9: These will produce money. If there are no occupying planets to these Houses, analyse their Rulers to indicate your potential for money, and from what source.

Yogas/ Connections:

2nd House – 11th House:
The most powerful combination for money is when the 2nd House is connected to the 11th House. It means large amounts of money, so check the Ruler and the occupants for favourable or negative indications.

1st House – 2nd House:
The next powerful combination is when the 1st House is connected to the 2nd House.

Connection between the 2nd, 5th, 9th, and the 11th Houses:
Dhana Yogas in Vedic astrology.
Any connection of the 1st House to the 2nd House will create money.

Combinations of the wealth-producing Houses will bring money. Any combination of 2nd, 5th, 9th and the 11th Houses produce money. If combined with the 1st House, this is powerful.

House Ruler Connections:
Combinations of the planets that rule the money houses will produce money. The source and manner of money acquisition depends on the Houses these planets occupy. If the combination occupies the 8th house natally or by transit or it is activated by Dasa (Vedic Predictive period), money may come from inheritance or from others (e.g. partnership).

Combinations of planets that rule 2nd, 11th, 5th and 9th houses will produce great wealth, and if Jupiter aspects these planets it will magnify the results of wealth and money even more. Jupiter expands what it aspects. Jupiter’s aspects are the conjunction, opposition and the trine aspect (120 degrees).
