Ascendant, 3rd house, 6th house, and 9th house are analyzed. Beneficial association between the lords of these houses and the planets occupying them indicates paternal relationship and thinking patterns of the native. Most benefic exaltation denotes great paternal legacy, also progressive and positive thinking.
Suppose the above-said houses are aspected by malefic planets. In that case, the native tends to have negative and criminal thoughts, resulting in poverty or losses and health disorders inherited through paternal lineage.
