Affairs governed by the 6th House are:

Health, illness, disease, enemies, competitors (seen and unseen), foes, jealous people, miserliness, daily job, service, detailed jobs, service jobs, preparation of food, restaurants, caterers, appetite, subordinates, tenants, maids, employees, maternal uncle, medical profession, nursing, doctors, cousins, litigations, tendency to be charged in court cases.

The 6th House is a harmful, negative or evil House.

Planets located in the 6th will suffer, and so will the Houses they rule.

Similarly, the ruler of the 6th House will cause damage to the House It occupies.

However the 6th is the least malicious of the three negative Houses (the other two being the 8th and the 12th), because it is also a growing House.  This means that any planet located in such a House grows stronger as time passes.
As a result of this growth, problems caused by the interaction and involvement of planets with this House become less, or can be readily overcome in time with the appropriate remedy.

For example, suppose Mercury, the planet of communication, is ruling the 2nd house (a house of speech), and occupies occupies either the 6th,8th, or 12th houses. It is possible that a stammer or other speech defect could occur due to this placement. If Mercury is in the 6th house, it is highly likely that the problem will be unnoticeable by the time the person reaches adulthood. However, Mercury is occupying the 8th or the 12th Houses, the problem will be much harder to rectify.

Jyotish texts declare that a person is able to “destroy his enemies” if his 6th house is well aspected or otherwise fortified. Thus, a strong 6th House is for the purpose of reaching the top of any chosen field.

The indicators of 6th House are Mars and Saturn.
