Sexual diseases and astrology

Rule : Lagna-esae neecha-rasisthe, neecha-graha samanvithe, neecha-amsae, paapa-varge vaa du-seelo, rogavaan bhaveth = If birth lagna (Ascendant) is weak and is occupied by malefic or inimical planets or planets that are debilitated or combusted or retrograde, the person suffers diseases caused by his / her sins

In the sexual and reproductive sphere, Mars is related to sexually transmitted diseases and often features in the charts of women undergoing abortion


  • In a horoscope, association of the Lord of 6th house with any of the planets will show up as a disease. If both the Karaka and Lord are associated with 6th lord, then problems will be magnified.
  • Position of planets in 6th house in the horoscope causes problems.
  • The planet Mars signifies wounds and injuries due to accidents, etc.
  • Rahu is responsible for suddenness.
  • Saturn represents chronic diseases.

Please note that association and aspect by an agent is essential. Weakness of the Karaka/Lord is important. General Weakness, but not amounting to disease should be looked at very carefully. If a planet is debilitated or is associated with other inimical houses, e.g. 12th and 8th, it will not cause disease by itself. However, it will signify general weakness and lack of development for that body part.

Sexual functions 

1.     This especially relates to the male reproductive system, testosterone levels, testes function and sperm production. Also the androgen levels of the adrenal cortex. There is a Mars influence during puberty for development of male secondary sexual characteristics, and also the ongoing levels of male libido and physical performance during adult life. Problems include: 

2.     Arteriosclerosis of the penile arteries, penile erection dysfunction, low libido. Consider Saturn-Mars patterns. 

3.     Under-development of the male system, immature genitalia. A weak Mars, also consider the added influence of Uranus. 
4.     Inflammation of the gonads or system, e.g. orchitis, prostatitis. Consider also the Moon.

According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) there are over 15 million cases of sexually transmitted disease cases reported annually. The age group at the greatest risk for acquiring an STD is adolescents and young adults between the ages of 15 - 24 with 3 million becoming infected each year.
Most STDs are treatable although at one time gonorrhea was easily cured yet has now become resistant to many of the older traditional antibiotics. And other STDs, such as AIDS, genital warts (HPV) and herpes, all of which are caused by viruses, have no cure. Some of these infections are asymptomatic, some are extremely uncomfortable and others are just down-right deadly!
AIDS, genital warts, hepatitis, herpes, syphilis, and even gonorrhea have all been known to cause death
