Planets and Deaf and Dumb
Ears are very important sense organs of our body, associated with the sense of hearing. In a Nativity, the 3rd house and sign Gemini (3rd house of natural zodiac) are connected with hearing; and Aakash Tattva, governed by Jupiter, is responsible for manifesting the Sound, which the ears can hear. The 2nd house and sign Taurus (the 2nd house of natural zodiac) is connected with organs of speech (Larynx and Vocal Cords etc). The planet Mercury is karaka of expression and communication. Any affliction to the planets Jupiter and Mercury, 2nd and 3rd house of the nativity and Gemini and Taurus at the time of cause the problem of hearing and speech. Mercury governs the nervous system and nerves. Damage to speech and hearing is due to sensory loss or afflicted nerves responsible for these functions. And finally, Lagna and Lagna-lord should be associated with these afflictions.
