Dusthana: Houses of Suffering

Dusthana: Houses of Suffering

Dusthana houses

Among the twelve houses, there are three, which cause suffering to the native, due to the effects of past births. Maharishi Parashara calls these houses Du houses; the present nomenclature knows them as Du – sthana or dusthana.

These houses are:

  • Sixth (sins/weaknesses, strife, punishment, enmity, fights, arguments, battles)
  • Eighth (evil karma, past life mistakes/wrong doings, death, shock, sorrow)
  • Twelfth (loss, theft, secret enemies, expenses)

The sixth and eighth houses both become important when diseases are concerned, among which the sixth shows diseases arising from own weaknesses, while the eighth shows the long term diseases and trials arising from the wrong doings in the past births.

The twelfth house indicates losses needed to release one from one’s past debts, which could be forced away from the native, provided the native is not prepared to give. The people who cause this loss act as secret enemies or thieves. From a positive angle, the twelfth house can give good expenses to charitable organizations and similar causes.
