The interest of every individual to know his financial status has inspired me to write this book. This is a part of the Encyclopedia captioned as Wealth & Prosperity’. It is the seventh book in the encyclopedia series.

We have in this book tried to explain the combinations of wealth with an eye for the reader to understand the principles that decipher the quantum of wealth.

In the beginning we have given a large number of examples which show the combinations that are instrumental in giving wealth. We have also outlined the combinations that generate wealth.

From the third chapter onwards we embark upon analyzing a horoscope on the promise it holds for wealth and prosperity. It starts with explaining the impact of Signs and houses on there propensity as wealth providers.

In basic predictive astrology the ascendant, second, fifth, ninth and eleventh house play critical role in predicting the wealth quantum. There are six chapters we have dedicated in the book explaining the impact of planets in houses and the placement of lords of ascendant, second, fifth, ninth and eleventh in different houses .In details the results have been written. This is the first basic principle that has to be understood and has been dealt at length.

In over hundred pages after explaining the impact of the placement of wealth giving houses we have explained the various Yoga’s that give wealth as well as those leading to poverty and misery. The placement of planets in houses, combinations, exchanges and various combinations that give rise to wealth and status has been dealt in great details. This understanding is important to conclude on the level of wealth that a horoscope indicates.

Wealth is inseparable necessity in today's human life, without wealth imagination of human life is not possible in this modern era. Right from food, clothing and shelter to modern amenities of life like car, air conditioners, refrigerators, all requires wealth to acquire or possess them. To help the modern gadgets working, one need electricity, and for that too one need to pay in terms of money, without wealth it is not possible to purchase and possess modern gadgets or get them running to enjoy their utility. These days everything needs wealth, even drinking water is required to be purchased and that day will also not be very far when we might require wealth to breath air, oxygen cafes has already emerged out in the cities though now it is only our choice to use it or not, but some day it may become our compulsion too. Wealth is the only thing which helps us to get ourselves avail all these things in our life.

Life in modern times is neither imaginable without wealth, nor it is practical these days to live without wealth. Everyone on this planet need wealth, In some or other form or quantity to meet their day to day necessity, beginning from the necessity of having food for their stomach, cloth to cover their body and shelter for living, to meet various other challenges of modern life like medicine, transportation, education, entertainment etc. anything and everything can be met only with the help of money and wealth. Without money and wealth life becomes miserable and something like that of primitive stone age or like that of animals, who do not require worldly stuff like shelter, clothing, education, entertainment and all other worldly things.

Everyone on this earth barring a few godly saints needs wealth to meet social security, enjoyments and all comforts of this materialistic world. Even those godly saints who don't need money might not be 'drinking free water from rivers, lakes or ponds, we all know how polluted is the river or lake waters these days, such water is not healthy to drink and people cannot survive for long by consuming such water. If they are consuming purified water then someone or the other is paying its cost in the form of money on their behalf. Importance of wealth is inseparable from modern life, however simplistic be the life style one need wealth to fulfill some or the other necessity of human life.'

On the basis of wealth we can classify the human beings in different groups such as: - Enormously Rich, Very Rich, Rich, well to do, upper middle class, middle class, poor, very poor and extremely poor.

The necessity for money is not the lust for money and it should not be considered the immoral thing to do. The necessity for money helps an economy to grow, entrepreneur to invest in profitable means which help in providing employment opportunities for many people in the society and common people to put in extra hard work to earn more and more money. Hence, only the necessity for money helps the economy and the society to grow and keep growing in a never ending manner. If this necessity for money dies or dries up, then the economy will dry up, growth will vanish, employment opportunities will dry up spreading unhappiness and dissatisfaction within the society, finally resulting into misery and starvation in the society and everywhere in this world.

But this doesn't mean that the people who are not rich do not put in sufficient efforts and hard work to acquire wealth, but everyone is restricted to earn only that much wealth that one is destined to earn. Where wealth is concerned no occupation is taboo to the human beings. One can adopt honest and straight forward means for making money or may adopt nefarious ways of crimes or other malpractices to earn wealth. The Karmic effects of the past which design the destiny of an individual for acquiring wealth are reflected in the horoscope by various planetary combinations within a horoscope or by absence of them in any horoscope.

The planet of wealth and prosperity, namely the Jupiter, signifies the extent to which the native will earn or gain wealth and financial prosperity in his or her life. However there are many specific astrological principles which signify the wealth and prosperity for the native. Gain of wealth and prosperity is attributed to the 2nd and 11th houses, while the 5th and the 9th .house signify wealth and prosperity through speculation and good fortune. The Ascendant and the tenth house signify the native himself and his karma or the action, and the lords of these houses also suggest the possible sources for acquiring wealth and prosperity.

The science of astrology is linked with divine trinity, which comprise of Lord Brahma, the creator, Lord Vishnu, the sustainer or the guardian, and Lord Mahesha or Lord Shiva, the destroyer. In a horoscope there are four triangles, namely Dharma trikona, Artha trikona, Kama trikona and the Moksha trikona.

The Dharma trikona comprises of the houses 1st 5th and 9th and in signs of zodiac it comprises of the fiery signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius denoting the Agni tatwa. The Artha trikona comprises of the houses 2nd 6th and 10th and in signs of zodiac it comprises of the earthy signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn denoting the Prithvi tatwa. The Kama trikona comprises of the houses 3rd 7th and 11th and in signs of zodiac it comprises of the aiery signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius denoting the Vayu tatwa. The Moksha trikona comprises of the houses 4th 8th and 12th and in signs of zodiac it comprises of the watery signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces denoting the Jal tatwa.

Among all the four trikonas, it is the Artha trikona which sustains the human life through wealth and prosperity. It provides the essential element of human life, the wealth, which plays a dominant role in proper survival of human life. Saint Valmiki said in Ramayana that Guru Vashistha explained to Lord Rama that in this world, wealth is the most important thing, and there is not much of difference between a poor and a dead person, while a wealthy person seeking after Dharma and prosperity will succeed at all cost but the poor person striving for prosperity will find it difficult to attain.

Sage Vyasa also writes the similar thing in Mahabharata, that through wealth one attains Dharma, Kama and Moksha in life, and even day to day life in this world is not possible without wealth in hand. Hence, the Artha is important for rest of the three, Dharma, Kama and Moksha in life. The great economist Chanakya writes in his sutras that root of happiness is Dharma, and the root of Dharma is wealth and prosperity. The motive of any karma or action is gain of wealth and prosperity which bestows dharma and Kama. Chanakya has also mentioned in his work that one who has wealth and prosperity has friends and relatives and only then he is considered as man and he is able to live his life.

Money is essential for sustaining life and is represented by the Goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity. The Artha or the money, wealth, prosperity and fortune comprises of land, property, farms, jewelry, gems, buildings, vehicles, all lovable, beautiful and comfort providing things and objects and denomination of status in the society. From time immemorial, people realized the importance of wealth and prosperity in life. People without wealth live a life of suffering, destitution and penury, and lives unsung, unwept and unhonoured in life as well as in death. Poverty is like a curse that causes hunger, deprivation, humiliation, subjugation and many a times degradation of basic human values.
