Dwi-Janam year (Year of second birth):

When the birth lagna recurs as lagna in annual chart, it is called Dwi-Janam year. Such a year is generally adverse and leads to illness, disappointments, reversals, monetary loss, loss of name, fame or even death. Following points must be noted in this regard:

1. If the degree of lagna in birth and annual chart are identical, the entire year produce adverse results.

2. If the birth Nakshtra (one occupied by Moon in birth chart) too recurs in the annual chart, along with the lagna, and if Moon & Jupiter are weak or placed in 6th or 8th house under malefic influence, the year proves very bad. If the birth chart also shows an adverse dasha, the year may prove fatal.

3. The Moon in 6th and Jupiter in 8th house during a Dwi-Janam year, may cause serious illness or death.

4. When the lord of the year, lagna lord of annual chart, and the Muntha lord are strong and well placed, much of the blemish of Dwi-Janam year is taken off.

5. Much of the adverse influence of Dwi-Janam year is taken off if Moon & Jupiter in the annual chart are strong and well placed.
