Empty House in Astrology: Meaning 

According to astrology, an Empty house means “Struggle”, like if you have an empty 8th house in vedic astrology birth chart which is associated with wealth and longevity of life. The native has to deal with wealth and health issues. Moreover, there will be struggles related to major events in his life. 

Let’s take another example; suppose you have the 7th house empty, Yuvati Bhava or “descendant”. This house is associated with a spouse or partner. Also, it gives you information about all the other relationships and bonds in your life. Now when it’s empty, it could mean struggles in your relationships or marriage. However, you might try hard to maintain good relationships in your personal and professional life. However, as per the effect of your empty 7th house astrology, you will face severe problems like commitment issues in the relationship.

Would it be bad to have an empty 8th house in vedic astrology? As per astrology, this house isn’t that inauspicious. It means that there is a possibility of fewer sudden changes or mishappenings in our lives. Moreover, it makes the person more open and communicative about his feelings.

Empty 9th house astrology

The ninth house of astrology is called dharma bhava, associated with good deeds, charity, higher learnings, immigration, and more. This house governs truth, principles, and intuitions too. Moreover, being under the influence of Sagittarian energy, this house also corresponds to fortune and favour.

Empty 10th house astrology

Being ruled by the Saturn energy, this house is also known as “Karma Bhava”. This is because it reflects what will be our reputation in society and the workplace. If benefic planets are placed in this house, it becomes one of the most promising ones of all. Moreover, there are different body parts like knees, bones and joints being governed by this house. 

What does empty 10th house in astrology reflect? First, the native has to struggle to get a good reputation. Also, they will have to face a lot of confusion in choosing the right profession.

Empty 12th house astrology

The last house of astrology represents the ending of one cycle and the beginning of another. It means detachment; it could also mean death, the ultimate detachment. Moreover, this house is subjected to unconsciousness, self-undoing and imprisonment. Regarding body parts, it controls the left eye, feet and lymphatic system. 

Also, as the energy of Neptune lies in this astrological house; as a result, it governs dreams, intuitions and emotions. So having an empty 12th house isn’t something you should be stressing about. However, this astrological position is auspicious in life; it could serve us with extreme sexual pleasures and more. 

Significance of planetary transits in empty houses astrology 

Now that we have discussed every house separately, this raises a fundamental question, “Will these houses always give the same results?” Well, no! As per various planetary transits or dashas, these houses are temporarily influenced by benefic/ malefic planets. And depending on how the planet tunes in with the house lord and the associated energies of the house, it changes its results. 

For example, if there is a strong Saturn transit in your 10th house, then what will happen? As we all know 10th, the “Karma Bhava” is majorly associated with Saturn itself. So, this saturn transit will only give beneficial results for this house.
