The 2nd, 6th and 10th houses are Artha Trikona Houses in Astrology. Artha means wealth. Another meaning of the word Artha is the means of living. We will start understanding these houses from the 6th house. The 6th house is the first means of earning and therefore it indicates earning through the job


Another indication of Sixth house is a disease. Health is also another type of wealth. Both of these are the seeds of means of living. 6th house is a house of enemies. 6th house also indicates debts

and enemies which are means of loss of wealth.

The next house in Artha trine is the 10th house and that indicates Karma or action for means of living.
