ch 10 v.14-15. Should the ascendant fall in a Nigala, Sarpa, Pakshi or Pasa decanate and be occupied by malefic planets, without the aspect of the decanatelord concerned, the native lives upto 7 years only. If Rahu is in an angle and aspected by malefics, the longevity is only 10, while according to some, it is 16. Notes: For. example, Sarpa drekkana in Pisces is the 3rd decanate, i.e. 20 degrees-30 degrees. Suppose Rahu is in 20-30 degree area of Pisces. He should be aspected by Mars,the ruler of Scorpio where the 3rd decanate falls, so that the child lives beyond 7 years of its age. Similarly for other decanates.Ch, 4,v. 3 to 6; 3-6. The counting of limbs according to the decanate rising at birth should be identified, as under. If the first decanate rises, count from head. If second, fromneck and, if 3rd, from pelvis. The 6 Rasis backwards from the Ascendant denote the left side of the body, while the 6 forward Rasis from Lagna indicate the right side of the body. Should the first decanate of a Sign ascend, the lapsed part of the Ascendant denotes left side of the head and the part to rise yet indicates the right side of the head, the2nd and 12th denote right and left eyes, respectively, 3rd and 11th right and left ears, 4th and 10th right and left nose, 5th and 9th right and left cheeks, 6th and 8th right andleft chins and the 7th left side of the face (area yet to rise) and the 7th right side of the face (portion already descended). If the 2nd decanate rises, neck, shoulder, arms, side,heart, stomach and navel are to be understood in the same order. Should the third decanate rise, pelvis, anus, penis, testicle, thigh, knee, calf and feet will be counted in thesame order. The decanates occupied by malefics denote wounds etc., while the ones by benefics indicate marks (moles) on the limbs concerned. Should these planets be intheir own Rasi, or Amsa at birth, then the wound, or mole are right from birth. Otherwise these will be caused later on (in appropriate periods).Vol 2; If Saturn is in the rising decanate (in 1 in D 3), some peculiarities in appearance can be noticed, Iike excess lingers, blunt thumb, thumblessness, uneven eyes and thelike.Even a person born in regal scion will become an artisan if the ascendant in Mercury's decanate receives the aspect of the Moon from an angle.66. Should the Moon be in her own Rasi and in her own decanate, one will become a ruler. If simultaneously a benelic is endowed with strength, the native will become agreat king.__
lf a planefs cntribution gets doubled by virtue of position in own sign, own decanate etc., (as per sloka 6 above) and further warrants trebling by virtue of retrogression/ exaltation, the trebling should also be done. So say the learned.__
LAGNA DASA: The ascendant's major period will prove auspicious if it is in the firstdecanate of a movable sign; medium in the second decanate and poor in the 3
decanate. The reverse is true with a common sign ascendlng, i.e. third, second and firstdecanate will respectively be auspicious, medium and poor. As for a fixed sign ascending first, second and third decanates will respectively give poor, auspicious and mediumeffects.___
; If Chandr be in the decanate of Shani or in the Navams of Shani or Mangal, and be aspected by Shani, the native becomes an ascetic and enters the holy order signified by Shani.Ch.3, v..38;
. Male planets are strong in the first decanate, female planets in the third decanate and neutral planets in the second decanate of a Rasi. Planets arestrong, only when they are away from the Sun, as per Yavanas..v.
31-33. A planet in its own decanate confers virtues61. Should Mars be in the Ascendant and fall in the ascendental decanate, or a trinal decanate, receiving the aspect of malefics, while benefics are devoid of strength, the childin the womb develops no head, no legs and no hands, respectively.
In a Movable Lagna, the effects of the three decanates, first, second and third are good, middling and bad respectively; in a Fixed one, they are in order, bad, goodand middling; In a Dual one, middling, bad and good.CONDITIONS AT DEATH
If the 8th house is neither occupied nor aspected by planets
, then death could be expected as a result of the special nature or humour of the sign representing the 8th house,or of the Navamsa Sign occupied by the lord of the 8th.
in 8 or LO8 in ari in D9
: Death will be due to fever, poison, stomach disease and biliousness.

jaundice, diarrhoea, enlargement of the spleen and the like.
Through a tree, water, weapon or wooden piece. (The effectis sure if the concerned Sign or Amsa is occupied by a malefic).
by impalement, ploughing or mental derangement. If there is a malefic in the Sign or Amsa, death is likely through wild animals like tigers, cough, fever, consumption or some unnatural cause.
If there is a malefic in the Sign or Amsa, death islikely through tigers, weapons, serpents, cough, fever or consumption.
It may be due to snake-poison, exhaustion of a journey, storm, machine, ship-wreck or fall of lightning.
In case the 8th house is occupied by any one of the seven planets
beginning with the Sun the end may be brought about by (i) fire, (ii) water, (iii) weapon, (iv) fall, (v)fever, (vi) thirst or diabetes, and (vii) starvation, in order. On the other hand if this house is aspected by strong planets, the cause of death may be the particular humours belonging to them.
Place of death
. If the 8th house is a movable sign, death will take place in a foreign country; if it is a fixed one; at home; and if a dual one, on the way or near home.

saravali ch,10. Should the Ascendant fall in Nigala, Sarpa, Pakshi, or Pasa decanate and be occupied by malefic planets, without the aspect of the decanate Lord concerned, the native lives up to 7 years only. If Rahu is in an Angle and aspected by malefics, the longevity is only 10, while, according to some, it is 16.(i) sun in 10 + mars in 4 = fall from a mountain,(ii) Saturn in 4 , Moon in 7 and Mars in 10 = falling into a well.(iii) sun + moon in Virgo + aspect by malefics, death from one's own kinsmen.(iv) sun + moon in 1 in dual sign, death in water / due to water.(v) Saturn in Cancer and Moon in Capricorn= dropsy would be the cause.(vi) Moon disposited by Mars and hemmed between malefics= due to weapons or fire.(vii) Moon in Virgo and hemmed between malefics= vitiation of blood or consumption.(viii) moon disposited by saturn and hemmed between malefics= by hanging, fire or a fall.(ix) malefics in 5th and 9th houses without benefic aspect= death will be in captivity.(xii) Sun or Mars in 4, Saturn in the 10 and the weak Moon conjoined with malefics in 1, 5th or 9th house, death will be by impalement.(xvii) If Saturn in 2, moon in 4 + mars in 10, caused by wounds or worms.(xviii) Sun in 10 + mars in 4 = fall from a vehicle.(xx) Mars in Libra, Saturn in Aries and the Moon in a sign owned by Saturn cause death in the midst of filth and night-soil. The effect will be the same if the weak Moon bein the
Sun in VII and Mars in IV .(xxi) weak Moon aspected by strong Mars + Saturn in 8, death would be caused by worms (or tumour), instruments or fire in the wake of some disease of private parts.You are aware that the 22nd decanate which falls in the 8th house from the Ascendant is called Khara.. This has great influence on a person's death. The characteristics of thisdecanate or of its lord would point to the way the soul exits from the body.
This method should be applied in the absence of other special yogas/conditions
The effects will come to pass especially when the concerned decanate sign is conjoined with or aspected by malefics. applicable to the stronger among theascendant and the Moon
If the decanate of the 8th house is Sarpa (Serpent), Pasa (Noose) or Nigada (Fetters), death will be in captivity (or hospital/ hospice).SignsFirst DecanateSecond DecanateThird DecanateAriesWater, Snake
