Debilitated Jupiter in Fourth House
When debilitated Jupiter is placed in the fourth house in a horoscope, Libra rises in the ascendant. Debilitated Jupiter is malefic in the fourth house in many cases though it may turn benefic in some cases. This may happen when Jupiter is influenced by benefic planets, such as through conjunction and/or aspects. As the number of benefic planets and the strengths of such planets increase, Jupiter may become more benefic.
Since Jupiter is weak due to debilitation, it may become easy for benefic planets to add positivity to Jupiter. If debilitated Jupiter is influenced by one or more than one benefic planet in the fourth house, it may turn significantly or highly benefic. Apart from that, the overall theme of horoscope having such debilitated Jupiter can also turn it benefic in some cases, when such theme is benefic. The concept of malefic planets turning benefic due to influences of benefic planets has been explained in Manglik Dosh section of the book ‘Match Making and Manglik Dosh (Revised Edition)’.
Let’s look at some results which may be given by debilitated Jupiter in the fourth house when it is benefic. Such benefic debilitated Jupiter can bless the native with good results related to marriage (females), mother, education, wealth, properties, vehicles, profession, finances, fame, reputation, authority and several other good results, depending on his/her overall horoscope.
Such benefic debilitated Jupiter can help the native achieve success as a doctor, engineer, scientist, software developer, IT professional, astrologer, psychic, tantric, police officer, revenue officer, army officer, administrative officer, actor, musician, writer, fashion designer, interior designer, sportsman, banker, professional dealing in finance industry, chemical industry, medical industry, pharmaceutical industry, advertisement industry, marketing industry, agriculture industry, casino industry, arms industry, security industry or some other type of professional, depending on his overall horoscope.
Taking an example, suppose debilitated Jupiter is placed in the fourth house of a horoscope in Capricorn with benefic exalted Mars. Benefic Mars is strong due to exaltation and it forms Ruchaka Yoga in the fourth house. Hence it may transfer a lot of positive energy to weak Jupiter. As a result, Jupiter may turn significantly benefic and the overall combination in the fourth house may become duly benefic. Suppose benefic exalted Sun is placed in the seventh house in Aries, benefic Rahu is placed in the third house in Sagittarius, Ketu is placed in the ninth house in Gemini, debilitated Mercury is placed in the sixth house in Pisces and benefic Saturn is placed in the eighth house in Taurus. In this case, the native may become a sportsman. He may engage in a sport from early age and he may achieve good amount of success, money, fame and recognition through it. The native may be a player known on national or international level, and he may possess good skills related to the sport he engages in.
If benefic Moon is placed in the third house in Sagittarius with Rahu, and Venus is placed in the seventh house in Aries with Sun, the equation may become better. The native may possess very good talent related to the sport he engages in, and he may come across wonderful amount of success, fame, recognition and money as a sportsman. He may have a very high success rate and he may be famous on international level. The native may have a large number of fans across the world and he may earn billions through the sport he engages in, as well as through brand endorsements. He may receive several formal awards for outstanding performances in various matches and he may also receive formal award/awards from the government. The native may get married to a doctor, engineer, software developer or scientist and he may enjoy a good marriage.
Apart from these, benefic debilitated Jupiter in the fourth house of horoscope can bless the native with several other good results, depending on his overall horoscope.
On the other hand, malefic debilitated Jupiter in the fourth house of horoscope can trouble the native with problems related to marriage (females), mother, siblings, education, properties, vehicles, physical health, mental health, lifespan, profession, finances, reputation and several other problems, depending on his/her overall horoscope.
Such debilitated Jupiter can trouble the native with a wide variety of health problems, especially those related to mental health. Taking an example, suppose malefic debilitated Jupiter is placed in the fourth house of a horoscope in Capricorn. A combination of debilitated Mercury and exalted Venus is placed in the sixth house in Pisces, Saturn is placed in the second house in Scorpio, malefic Ketu is placed in the first house in Libra and malefic Rahu is placed in the seventh house in Aries. It should be noted that both Mercury as well as Venus are partly malefic for horoscopes with Libra ascendant. Apart from that, the sixth house features a hostile environment. Hence Neechbhang Rajyoga may not be formed in this case. The concept of various planets exhibiting tendencies to be benefic or malefic on the basis of the houses they rule in a horoscope has been explained in the chapter ‘Gemstones for House Lords’ of the book ‘Gemstones: Magic or Science? (Revised Edition)’.
In this case, the native may suffer from problems related to mental health and he may have to avail treatment for many years. The native may also have to spend some time in a mental asylum. If Sun is placed in the sixth house in Pisces with Mercury and Venus, Moon is placed in the fifth house in Aquarius and Mars is placed in the seventh house in Aries with malefic Rahu, the equation may become more troublesome. Malefic Rahu may afflict Mars and Angarak Yoga may be formed in the seventh house. In this case, the native may suffer from a serious mental disease, he may go insane and he may have to spend many years of his life in a mental asylum. If the finer factors and running times are also negative, the native may not get out of mental asylum after the age of 35 years. It means he may spend the rest of his life in such asylum. The native may die before the age of 50.
Apart from these, malefic debilitated Jupiter in the fourth house of horoscope can trouble the native with several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope.
