Every house in a chart signifies different aspect of our life. Studying a house tells us what results we will be getting in regards to aspects related with that particular house.

When studying a house we take notice of following factors

4) Karaka of the house
5) Planets aspecting the house


First House signifies Self, Personality, General Health, Physical constitution, Fame, intelligence. In Sanskrit it is called "Tanu Bhava" Which means "Body". This house signifies body as a whole. First house help us analyse how a person will put himsel in public, what his social status, general appearance, pearsonality and image will be in public especially family and friends. THis house is most important hosue of chart. Because It affects all other houses of the chart directly or indirectly, there is no need to explain why.

It signifies our strengths and weaknesses, our psyche/psychology at a general level and our tolerance and adjusting capabilities in society at a very general level. It's association with different houses gives us different fruits, like with 6th or 8th it gives us diseases and enemies, with ninth it shows spiritual enlightment and so on.

In BPHS it is written:
"Maharishi Parashar replies. Physique, appearance, intellect (or the organ of intelligence, i.e. brain), complexion of the body, vigour, weakness, happiness, grief and innate nature are all to be guessed through the ascending Rasi."

Dosha and Satva Guna. In Relation first House signifies Self, Father's mother and Mother's father. It's Karak is Sun and it conincides with the Aries sign.


Generally, If First house Lord is in conjunction with 6Lord, 8L, 12L Or is related with 6House, 8H, 12H by any other mean then the native's physical comforts will decrease. If it is in an angle (1H,4H,7H,10H) or Trine (5H,9H) then the person will have all body comforts. If First lord is Debilitated, Combusted, In enemy's house, with enemy or is afflicted then person will lack physical discomforts.
