Chastity is sexual behaviour of a man or woman that is acceptable to the moral standards and guidelines of their culture, civilization or religion. In the Western world, the term has become closely associated (and is often used interchangeably) with sexual abstinence, especially before marriage.
CHASTITY OF A WOMAN
Fourth house is supposed to indicate the chastity of a woman. But in my experience I have found that
other houses also cause effect. Sixth, seventh, eleventh and twelfth houses also are indicators. Generally, Shukra is the chief indicator. Any sort of relationship of Shukra and Kuja is likely to affect the moral standard. Sixth house is the house of diseases. If one has to suffer from venereal diseases she should be immoral. Seventh being the house of partner and sexual union, she may elect an outsider. Eleventh house is the house of increase,/profit and even second wife or husband. A planet of this house may cause her to join one for profit. Lastly twelfth house is house of bed-comforts-may be better bed-comforts elsewhere. Then, why is fourth house singled out ? It is a house of happiness and general conduct. If she feels for increased earthly happiness, she may go out of her good conduct or her happiness in life may go down due to her bad conduct. In my experience fourth house has not given me proper satisfactory clue as the other houses.
May be that in ancient days sexual immorality being unthinkable; even slight bad character in a lady was
construed very seriously. These days even high sexual immorality is not of much significance. Then what about the natural bad conduct of fourth house ? While reading the chastity of a woman do not suddenly conclude merely looking at an afflicting planet. See if its Dasha or Bhukti operates. For, we have seen ladies remaining chaste till a distant age after which they have changed their conduct. Some who have been
immoral in early ages have turned out a new leaf in their later ages.
