The features of all houses under Upachayas deal with factors that need constant attention and effort. If you deviate and do not work on these areas constantly, results won’t be as per your wishes. Let’s talk about it in detail.

The third house deals with business, self-effort, communication, intellect. These things don’t develop in one day or a month. It needs constant efforts over a long period of time to achieve success in any of these fields. Therefore, from the early ’20s to the mid-’30s, you get enough opportunities to polish your talents. This talent matures with age and reaches its optimum during your ‘30s. Therefore, you get your limelight after the mid-‘30s.

Sixth And Eleventh House

The sixth house deals with enemies, diseases, obstacles, and competition. You will obviously admit that if you get opportunities then you will also have to face competitors. At the workplace, society, neighbourhood, or wherever, you will face people who oppose you. They will criticize you and even spread negativity around you. Hence, you will have to always be alert and take measures to keep them at bay. These efforts will mature with age and turn more diplomatic. Hence, you will achieve better results at work after your mid-‘30s.

The tenth house deals with career, name, fame, honor and social status. The eleventh house takes care of matters like income, earnings, and other financial gains. Similar to the third and sixth houses, these two houses also have the capacity to give better results with age and maturity, depending on your efforts. Your name and fame are directly proportional to your income. If you continuously work hard in your field, gradually you will get name and fame. And as you become famous your earnings are certainly going to increase. 

Facts About Upachaya House

Let’s look at some facts about Upachayas:

Upachays in The Rashi Wheel

  1. The negative part about Upachays is that all the planets give some difficult time in this house but this time passes. Moreover, this house becomes stronger with time. 
  2. The good planets never give good results in Upachays. This may sound disheartening. Though, these results may not be according to your will but might turn out fruitful in the long run. 
  3. Upachayas works on the theme of “Consistent Long Time Efforts”. Therefore, Saturn or Mars always remain in one of the karakas of Upachayas because these two planets help in putting consistent efforts for a long period. 
  4. 10th house is the most powerful in all four Upachayas. 

Upachayas is the reason why many film stars, writers, poets, and businessmen taste success during their mid – ‘30s. But then there are cases like Sachin Tendulkar and Sania Mirza who enjoyed fame early in life. One explanation can be that they started their efforts early in life too. The fact is, a birth chart has 12 houses and our planets are constantly moving from one house to the other.  Besides the four Upachayas, there are eight other houses. If a planet like Rahu or Sun is in a rising position in any of the fame and success giving houses in your chart, then nothing can limit your flight.
