I never understood the concept of Arudha Lagna fully until I read Zoran’s books! He explained it so beautifully.
From Lagna we can see our activity, attitude and decisions from Arudha Lagna we can see the effects coming from outside, external factors.
The karaka of Arudha Lagna is Chandra, so as a first step check the placement of Arudha Lagna from the placement of Chandra when you begin your analysis.
Not a good place for Chandra. It creates tough situations in life, which part of life will create these situations will depend on the position of Chandra from the Lagna chart and the house it rules.
Chandra in AL brings a lot of material prosperity but does not favor peace and happiness in family life. Because the 12th from AL becomes the 12th from Chandra which brings unwanted loss and suffering.
Chandra in 7th is a good placement in itself but the 2nd from AL becomes 8th from Chandra which causes some issues with finances and professional life. And the 6th from AL becomes 12th from Chandra which may again cause issues with family life.
7th from Chandra which shows desires falls on the AL which may make these people self-obsessed.
Can be good for career but not for family life and domestic happiness. 12th from AL indicates losses and separation.
2nd from Chandra becomes the AL which is good for finance. The 10th from Chandra ruling Kubera and wealth becomes the 9th from AL which brings lots of luck in terms of finance and prosperity. 12th from Chandra which represents family life will fall in the 11th from AL which may show someone who is only interested in gains from family.
This position may be good for family life and happiness but may turn out to be problematic for finances.
This position of Chandra is a blessing. Brings immense physical and mental strength and purity. This person will make the person a healer and help or serve people around them. This is because Chandra in 4th from AL gains digpala or directional strength.
This placement will make the person do good deeds and good karma. This also brings lots of fortune in both family and profession. Provided Chandra is well placed in rashi chart and rules good houses.
10th house from AL shows which karma we have to do an how much fame and respect we gain.
Chandra in 6th from AL may give problems with health, trouble from enemies, debts etc.
Chandra in 11th from AL may create problems with financial stability but would give a great family life and support from people around them. This is because the 2nd from chandra would be the 12th house from AL and the 12th from chandra would be the 10th house from AL. Planets in 11th from AL influence the wealth of a person.
If chandra is in trines to AL it gives abundance of luck an prosperity given it is not afflicted by any malefic conjunctions.
