The 6th House in our horoscope is a very important house for Soul level progress. The 6th house is the house of Shadripus or six enemies.

They are desire, kama (lust), krodha (anger), lobha (greed), moha (delusion), mada (pride) and matsarya (jealousy). And each is associated with a planet.

Lord Krishna says in the Bhagavad Gita

“tri-vidhaṁ narakasyedaṁ dvāraṁ nāśhanam ātmanaḥkāmaḥ krodhas tathā lobhas tasmād etat trayaṁ tyajet”

“There are three gates leading to the hell of self-destruction for the soul—lust, anger, and greed. Therefore, all should abandon these three.”

So among the 6, these 3 – Kama or Lust (venus), Krodha or Anger (Mars) and Lobha or Greed (Saturn) are of utmost importance to be cleansed.

In the Mudgala Purana, it is said that we can worship Lord Ganesha in certain forms to overcome these enemies and attain purity!

You can worship Lord Ganesha using the mantras given below

You can approach these planets based on their position in your own birth chart. For example, If you have Rahu in Gemini then you can chant “Aum Dhumravarnaya Namah” on Wednesdays.
