Death – The inevitable truth: You and your stars

Continuing our discussion from the earlier write-up on this topic, it is stated that the concept of longevity (length of life) can be divided as under i.e. in five groups:

i) Early death – Balarishta – from the day of birth upto the age of 7-8 years.

ii) Short life – Alpayu – practically from 8 years to 31-32 years.

iii) Middle Life – from 32 years to 60 years.

iv) Old age death – from 60 to 80 years.

v) Full Life – Puran Ayu – from 80 to 120 years.

2. In this write – up, focus shall be on `Balarishta’ early death of the child. The following combinations in the birth chart indicate early death. It is mentioned that you must not arrive at a hurried conclusion (jumping on the conclusion as even the following combinations may not result in death as there may be `SAVERS’ in the horoscope). Hence the need for full delineation of the Horoscope before any pronouncement is made-rather the pronouncements must be well-guarded pronouncements.

i) If the Moon occupies the 8th, 12th or 6th house and is aspected by malefic Rahu, the native dies early.

ii) Both the mother and child are likely to die, near about the delivery, if the Moon conjoins with Saturn and when the Sun is 12th house and Mars is in the 4th house. Similar situations about the death of mother and child are indicated when the Moon is in Lagna with no benefit aspect and is hemmed by malefics.

iii) Mother and child dies in the following combinations also:

a) Where 6th/8th/12th houses are occupied bymalefics with no benefic associations and Venus/Jupiter are in the grip of malefics.

b) If malefics occupy the 1st/6th/7th/8th house from Lagna.

c) If the ecliped Moon joins Saturn in Lagna and Mars occupies the 8th house.

iv) Early death of child in days/weeks/months is indicated in the following combination:

a) If malefics occupy the 6th/12th houses.

b) Malefic (waning) moon with a malefic planet in a kendra or the 8th house.

c) Benefic planets (weak) aspected by malefics occupying 6th or 8th house from Lagna (death within a month or so).

d) When the Sun, Mars and Saturn conjoin in the 6th/8th houses from Lagna without benefic associations/conjunctions/aspects.

e) Some time even the Sun, Mars and Saturn in 5th house are responsible for early death of the child.

f) Lagna Lord conjoins the Sun and the 8th Lord.

g) If malefics occupy the Lagna and the 7th house and the Moon conjoined with a malefic is not aspected by a benefic.

h) With waning Moon in 12th house and all malefics in the 8th house.

i) Moon and Rahu conjoin with a malefic and Mars occupy the 8th house. If this combination has Sun in Lagna, death may happen after operation.

v) Death in 3 years after birth:
i) When a retrograde planet occupies 6th/8th house or Kendra in a rign ruled by Mars and also aspected by Mars.

ii) When the Moon and Mars occupy the Lagna in Cancer and there are no planets in 4th, 7th, 8th and 10th houses.

vi) Death of the child in 4th year or so:

a) If the 6th/8th house is Cancer and is occupied by Mercury and aspected by the Moon.

b) Rahu in Lagna aspected/conjoined only by malefics.

vii) Death in 6 to 8 years of birth:

a) Venus in Leo or Cancer in the 6th/8th/12th houses aspected by malefics.

b) Lagna afflicted by Mars and Saturn and 7th house is occupied by the waning Moon.

c) Saturn, Mars and Venus in Lagna without Jupites’ aspect and the waning Moon is in the 7th houses.

d) Benefics in 6th or 8th houses and malefics in 5th and 9th houses-(death in 8th year or so).

3. As already indicated, the horoscope need to be fully studied. Danger of death in childhood is averted in the following combinations.

a) If the Moon is full Moon, exalted Moon or in a beneric sign, or in Navamsa.

b) When strong Lagna Lord is in Kendra in association/aspect/conjunction of a benefic and not aspected by any malefic.

c) Jupiter/Venus/Mercury in Kendras without any malefic aspect.

d) Jupiter alone in Lagna, 5th or 9th house.

e) Strong Jupiter alone in Kendra gives the needed protection.

f) If the birth is during the night of the lunar month (Shukla Paksha) or during the day in the dark half of the lunar month (Krishan Paksha), the child liveslong even when the Moon is in 6th or 8th house.

g) Exalted Moon (Taurus) aspected by Venus i.e. Venus aspecting own sign.

h) Three planets aspecting their signs or in their exaltation positions save the child from early death.

i) Lagna Lord, strongly placed in a Kendra or Trine, neutralizes the afflictions for early death.

j) Rahu in Lagna in Aries, Taurus or Cancer aspected by benefics saves the child.
