6th House in Time-based Astrology:

Sixth house of the Prashna Kundali is mainly considered to answer a Prashan pertaining to disease and its cure or otherwise, court cases, result of competition, recognizing enemies, war, servant, selection of service etc.

It is one of the Bhava amongst Trishadaya Bhava,, so it should have strength but less than Lagna otherwise, it indicates negative results of Prashan.
