INTERCEPTED SIGNS IN HOROSCOPES
Interceptions are a very fine point in astrology. An intercepted horoscope has all the planets but not all the signs. Interceptions are a factor of geography. Because of the Earth’s irregular shape, as births occur further and further North or South of the equator the division of houses becomes more irregular, For births near the polar latitudes its possible to have not only two, but four to six Zodiac Signs intercepted. This reveals a tremendous focus on just one or two of the twelve houses of the Zodiac.
Missing signs show what you lack. If a sign is intercepted, the sign opposite to it will also be intercepted. eg: if Aries is intercepted, then the opposite sign Libra will also be intercepted. If you have intercepted signs, then you have duplicated signs as well. So another two zodiac signs will occupy two houses each. RASHIS ARE INTERCEPTED BUT HOUSES ARE NEVER INTERCEPTED. The intercepted signs are overlapped by two rashis and the qualities of the intercepted signs find difficulty in coming out and giving its result to the native. The qualities of these signs can get bottled up and suppressed. Intercepted signs show a blockage With intercepted signs a balance is broken. We must interpret intercepted signs in pairs.
Aspects should be seen from the lagna chart.
We will try to understand this with the help of example charts.
Chart-1: 34yrs female
This is a chart of a female, who has the signs Aries and Libra intercepted and the signs Cancer and Capricorn have become dominant by occupying two houses each. 1H, 2H, 7H, 8H are dominant. Cancer occupies the ascendant and the 2H, so her total focus is on how to create and have her own identity and matters related to family, finance occupy her mind. The sign opposite cancer is Capricorn which occupies the 7H and 8H. Matters related to these two houses become dominant. She is always trying to please her husband and maintain peace and sustain her marriage.
Next we see, the intercepted signs are aries and libra. Development of her own personality, identity and benefit or happiness from partner/spouse is lacking in her life. She needs to put in lots of efforts to get gains of 1H and 7H matters.(1&7 self and partner of kaalpurush kundli)
Next we see that where the signs 1&7 are placed in her chart. The 4H and 10H are affected.4H—No happiness at home. No property in her name, her husband buys property in his siblings name and all the assets/documents are with her in-laws and not her. The opposite house 10H interception—her husband does not allow her to work inspite of being qualified. She has to leave the house if she wishes to work and earn.
Uranus is in libra in lagna chart, since libra is intercepted the qualities of this planet find it difficult to come out. Uranus gives us a rebellious nature wanting to be different and free.
Summary: Lack of confidence to develop her own identity, not wanting to be rebellious to maintain peace at home and sustain her marriage. Having financial problems but can’t take a strong step and have her own profession.
Before marriage she was a teacher.
Aries-Libra intercepted: Aries is a sign of aggression, dominance and opposite sign libra is a sign of partnership, your social circle. Intercepted Aries makes it difficult to take action, difficult to be assertive. Libra intercepted makes it difficult to form partnerships, be social and charming.
Taurus-Scorpio intercepted: Taurus is the sign family, finance, of accumulating and scorpio is the sign of generating and eliminating what is no longer useful to us. Scorpio also has the skill of confrontation. If Taurus intercepted, a person only accumulates and seldom eliminates. The desire to confront or end a friendship/issue is suppressed due to scorpio interception.
Gemini-Sagittarius intercepted: Gemini is the sign of communication, gathering information. Sagittarius is focused and likes details. With this interception a person finds it difficult to express his opinions or may not be able to express at all. He may not believe in destiny/religion.
Cancer-Capricorn intercepted: Cancer is a sign of emotions, home and Capricorn is a sign of karma, ambitions, power. With this interception, one cannot express emotions easily and the working talent is not bought out totally, a person is not able to aggressively bring out his potential.
Leo-Aquarius intercepted: Leo is exhibitionism and aquarius is where we want to be different, to be rebellious. With this interception, a person finds it difficult to be noticed and desire to be different is suppressed.
Virgo-Pisces intercepted: Virgo is a secretive sign, slow, careful, critical, meticulous. Pisces is visions of future we wish to achieve, a sea which has the good and bad, both. With this interception, the quality of serving/sevabhav is intercepted and we find it difficult to differentiate the good from bad. We may only dream and not actually implement efforts to achieve them.
NOTE: If the lords of the intercepted signs are well placed in a chart, then the effect of interception would be less.

She achieved tremendous success with her first film ‘Bobby’ and immediately got married to Rajesh Khanna, and quit films.

Chart-3: male 34 yrs
This is a chart of a 34yrs male who is working abroad and staying there with his family. He has 5-11 signs intercepted which fall in the 5H of romance and entertainment and 11H of friends. He does not have many friends and his wife is always complaining he only works and has no time for romance. Saturn and rahu in the 5H are said to give problems in having children. But since these planets are in an intercepted sign, their negative effect is not seen on this native. He has a 5yr old son and 1yr old daughter. Ketu is intercepted in aquarius sign in guru’s nakshatra and he has Jupiter exhalted. BSP: If Jupiter is exhalted, the house where aquarius is posited gets spoilt. This BSP does not apply here, as the sign aquarius is intercepted, so he gets full benefits of exhalted Jupiter. The 4H,5H,10H,11H ruled by cancer and capricorn have become dominant. He is very much attached to his parents, has many properties, assets, investments. He is a very ambitious person and his total focus is on his career and achieving position which he has. Sun the ruler of leo, which is intercepted is well placed in the 10th house so the effect of interception is less.
