Hair fall Problems in Astrology

Updated: Jun 19, 2021

Planet responsible for hair fall in astrology :

First house of vedic astrology horoscope is related with personality and physique of the person concerned. The influence of planets over first house and/or its lord is responsible for specific physical attributes of a person, including hairs on the scalp. Vedic astrology readings of the first house of a horoscope can be useful in identify the probability of hair loss or baldness in the birth chart of the person concerned.

When fiery planets namely the Sun, Mars and Ketu influence the first house of a vedic astrology horoscope, they can cause loss of hair and baldness. Similarly, the relationship of fiery or airy signs with first house or its lord can reduce the amount of hair on the scalp. The Moon and Venus are significators of healthy and beautiful hairs. And, the placement and/or relationship of the Moon and/or Venus with Saturn can also cause problems of hair loss or baldness to a person.In addition to this, placement of Mercury in Airy or Fiery signs has also observed to be causing loss of hair.

Natives having debilitated Venus under malefic influence and Sun in Libra in ascendant are mostly seen with thin hair line. Natives with Mars in Gemini under malefic influence, Venus in Leo under Ketu aspect and Saturn in Cancer in ascendant under malefic influence are mostly seen with hair fall problems. Natives having Fiery Sagittarius in ascendant with malefic influence, Venus with Mercury are also seen with baldness problem. Mercury as 12th lord in ascendant with Sun gives less hair/thin hairline. According to Brihad Jatak, If Birth falls in malevolent signs or in Sagittarius or Tauaus and is aspected by evil planets; the person will be bald headed. So signs rule by Malefic along with Sagittarius and Taurus under evil aspects can make the native bald headed.

The most obvious indicator is the presence of Sun in the ascendant or the 7th house in the rasi chart. Sun being the significator for head and hair, becomes anegative factor for good growth of hair if positioned in either of these two houses.

benefic planets such as Mercury, Venus and Jupiter. It must be recalled herethat Varahamihira considers the signs of benefic planets as helping in hair growthand the signs of malefic planets having a role in hair loss. However he considers two benefic signs as susceptible for hair-loss. They are Taurus and Sagittarius

if birth falls in malevolent signs or in Sagittarius or Taurus and is aspected by evil planets, the person will be bald headed. The lagnafalling in the signs of malefics such as Mars, Sun and Saturn must be devoid of evilafflictions for lasting hair growth on the head. Among the other signs, Taurus andSagittarius ruled by Venus and Jupiter respectively must also be devoid of maleficafflictions to avoid baldness

both sun and Mars are bilious planets.Excessive bile nature is one of the main causes for hair loss. So the three signs Aries,Scorpio and Leo come under the scanner.

The other two signs of malefic lordship are Capricorn and Aquarius. The lord Saturn isassociated with early aging. Premature graying and early thinning of hair are thelegacy of Saturn

Among the signs of benefic lords, Gemini and Virgo are the favorable ones for beautifulappearance of hair. The lord is Mercury who is associated with earthy nature (prithvitattwa). According to classical texts, birth in earthy nature ensures good and healthygrowth of hair and nails. Mercury is the planet of prithvi tattwa which is alsoassociated with skin. The Baadhak lord for both the Mercurian signs is a natural benefic namely Jupiter. Jupiter which aids in growth and is responsible for goodassimilation of protein products (protein is essential for hair growth) can not upsetthe Mercurian contribution to hair growth.

According to western astrology, the three fiery signs are held responsible for baldness.Among the planets Venus (good hair growth), Mercury (epidermis) and Saturn (irondeficiency is a cause for hair loss) in malefic angles can upset hair growth. As somecases of permanent baldness are induced by abnormal thyroid functions, thesignificator Mercury in affliction and its signs must be analyzed for such a condition.

.This is a major pointer to baldness as per texts. There is nodifferentiation between these signs as being fiery or watery. That it is lorded by Marsis the sufficient cause for the hair loss.
