Impotence is the inability of a man to achieve and sustain an erection. Medical science has now advanced enough to treat some if not all impotence problems. The causes of impotence can be traced to various reasons including underlying health conditions and diseases. But it does not affect all the people who have a certain medical condition. Vedic astrology can asses the person’s chart and detect if they are prone to impotence and what the planetary causes are.
Gender Of Rashis And Planets
Vedic astrology is a system that encompasses all the different variations in human life. It assigns various characteristics to each Rashi and Planet. Of these characteristics, gender is one. Rashis are male and female. The odd Rashis are Male while the even ones are female. Similarly, there are genders assigned to the planets as well. As in human life, there are not two but three genders assigned to planets.
The masculine planets are Sun, Mars and Jupiter. Of these, the Sun is a mature male. Mars is the younger and more energetic male while Jupiter is mature and wise.
The feminine planets are the Moon, Venus and Rahu. Venus and Moon are the ideal beautiful feminine energies. Venus is more sexual and Rahu is a wild and overly passionate female.
Third Gender Planets
The third gender planets are Mercury, Saturn and Ketu. Mercury is an adolescent and therefore not considered to be sexually mature. Mercury is also very dual in nature and this is also an explanation for Mercury being in between genders. Saturn is old and therefore sexually weak. Ketu is detached and spiritual. Ketu is also a significator of celibacy and therefore asexual.
Astrology And Impotence
Even when a person is otherwise in good health there could be impotence. In this case, astrology can give a much clearer idea as to why the impotence is caused. The houses in the birth chart that are studied are the 7th house and 8th house. The 12th house of bed pleasures is also seen. The 7th house is the actual sexual act and signifies the person’s attitude and capacity. The 7th and 8th houses also govern the sexual organs of the person. The 12th house is the house of bed pleasures.
Venus And Sex
In Vedic astrology, Venus is the significator of desire. Venus is also the significator of semen. In the Kal Purush Kundali, Venus is also the lord of Tula (Libra) the 7th house of unions. A well placed Venus and an unafflicted 7th lord and 7th house ensure a good sex life.
Afflicting Planets And Houses
Mercury, Saturn and Ketu are the most serious afflictions in sex life as they are the planets that are neutral in sexuality. When they are in connection with each other and are malefics to the Lagna, the problem is multiplied.
The fifth house is the house of children. When there is a problem with this house it could indicate problems with having children. When this is compounded by afflictions that reduce sexual performance, impotence is seen. The 5th house being weak but with other aspects being strong will not give impotence but instead cause problems with conception. The 6th house is the house of diseases and health issues. The 6th house can add to the problem but not create impotence without other afflictions.
Planetary Combinations Causing Impotence
It is ideal that each individual chart is studied in order to precisely pinpoint the cause of impotence. However, some combinations very commonly cause such issues. One must also study the Mahadasha that the native is undergoing to see when the problem will be triggered.
Malefics in the 6th, 7th or 8th house can cause sexual related health problems.
7th house affliction by the impotence causing planets. Moon, Ketu and Saturn in the 1st house. The affliction of the 1st or 7th house by Rahu and Saturn. Mercury and Ketu in the 7th aspected by Saturn and Rahu from the Lagna.
Rahu in the 7th house with Saturn in the 8th. This gets enhanced by Mercury’s aspect.
When Venus is in the 7th house and a malefic for the Lagna or under affliction, impotence is caused.
Saturn in debilitation in the 12th or the 6th house.
Saturn in a water sign in the 6th or 12th houses without any benefic aspect.
Ketu in the 8th in a Rashi owned by Mercury (Mithuna or Kanya) without any benefic aspects.
A very strong Mercury in the 8th or Mercury conjunct Ketu in the 8th.
Saturn conjunct Venus in the 8th or 12th houses.
Both Moon and Venus afflicted by Rahu, Ketu or Saturn.
Saturn and Mercury conjunct in the 7th.
