The lord of the second house, the Moon, adding to the fact of being not bright, has gone to the sixth house in its sign of debilitation weakening the house of family life and status and making it vulnerable to conflicts. The fourth ford, Mercury, is not only combust but is also in old-age. The seventh lord, Jupiter, is combust and its dispositor is weak. The combined effect of these had been delayed marriage, cheating in marriage, inharmonious relations and divorce. The mother of the native had to lead a long and unhappy life as a widow. Rahu-Ketu axis, being exactly conjunct to the most effective point of the houses of its occupation, had been instrumental in robbing the marital happiness and physical and mental fitness of the native.
The Sun is weak due to the weakness of its dispositor. Venus is weak as it is in the state of old-age and its dispositor is weak. Mars is strong. Their good placement gave strength to the native and blessed her with younger and elder brothers, a son, and an employment with the government. The placement of the lord of the house of fortune in the house of status has blessed the native with a status in the teaching profession. The native was married in the sub-period of the Moon in the main period of Venus. The native sought astrological help, after the grounds for divorce had been prepared in the same sub-period.

Jupiter is closely conjunct with the most effective point of the ninth house and creates an auspicious impact in spite of its being weak due to the weakness of its dispositor. Mercury, the fourth lord, is weak as it is combust, afflicted by Ketu from the eighth house, and Ketu afflicts also the most effective point of its mooltrikona sign and house of placement. Rahu-Ketu axis due to close aspects/conjunctions afflicts also debilitated Mars, Saturn, the Moon, and the most effective points of all the houses occupied and aspected. Besides Jupiter, the planets outside the grip of Rahu-Ketu are the Sun and Venus. Venus is badly placed and in infancy, and becomes additionally weak due to the affliction of Rahu to the most effective point of its house of placement. The Sun is weak on account of old-age, weak dispositor and afflicted most effective point of its house of placement. The Moon and Saturn occupy their signs of debilitation in navamsa.

Affliction to the weak second lord, debilitated Mars placed in the second house and the lord of the fortune placed in the eighth house, which is dispositor of the seventh lord, spoiled the marital life of the native. She did not have elder/younger brothers/sisters. She had short-lived and inharmonious marital relationship giving birth to a female child. She was married in Ketu/Mars.
The placement of Mars close to the most effective point of the second house, the Moon close to the most effective point of the tenth house, and the close aspect of Mercury to the Moon and the most effective point of the tenth house, blessed the native with employment. Life is a bed of thorns for the native primarily because of close afflictions to Saturn, the Moon and Mercury.

On the other hand, the weakness of the Moon and the Sun has ditched her in finding a regular job, in spite of her being a professional.
The weakness of the Moon, the lord of the house of family and male progeny, and its main period being in operation proved to be a hindrance for the continuance of the family line.

The placement of Venus, the lord of the fifth house, in the sign of a severely afflicted planet and the weakness of the Moon could not bless the native with a male child.

The lords of the seventh, eleventh, fifth and fourth houses are weak due to combustion and weak dispositor. The lords of the fifth and fourth houses are in infancy. The lord of the second house is debilitated and badly placed. The placement of five planets in the house of status in association with the royal planet, the Sun, has been of some help in harnessing the strength of the otherwise weak planets. Jupiter and Mars are closely aspected by exalted Saturn from the fifth house, though the debilitation of Saturn in navamsa and the weakness of its dispositor discount its strength. The close influence of Venus to the most effective point of the house of status, and placement of the Sun and Mars there have made the native a physician. The exaltation of the ninth lord granted exalted status to the father. The weakness of the lords of the second and seventh houses and placement of the debilitated Moon in the sixth house gave marital discord to the native.
