6th House (Ari Bhava)

6th House (Ari Bhava)“The world is the great gymnasium 
where we come to make ourselves strong.”
—Swami Vivekananda

The sixth house is a house of karmic difficulties. This house shows blocks and struggles that come in our way and prevent us from moving towards our true goals. These blocks can come in the form of illness, accidents, enemies, competitors or debts.

Positive manifestations of the sixth house can be expressed through the service we give to others. Health and healing also belong to the sixth house. When malefic planets are placed in the sixth house they provide the ability to fight back and overcome problems.
