In human life, the birth of children occupies a very prominent place. The parents find their own image in their children and see the progression of their lineage though the future of their children. The mother has to pass through nine months of grooming of the infant, with all it takes, which a mother can better understand and the results are still uncertain. Many of them are born still, many of them are born with incapability and many get eradicated from their very start of journey. Every thing has a very profound impact on the parents and their future. Prognosticating the sex of the unborn child has been a matter of concern in the recent years, where the foetus are killed when they are substantially grown and had their identity as a human child inside the womb. If the sex of the child is not what the parents want, they were brutally extricated. Thanks to the medical science that it can’t say anything about the sex of the child before it grows up substantially and help the parents to decide in advance whether or not to have a baby. This is where Jyotish comes to rescue. Because it can see the path much ahead of the time, it can forewarn the parents about the future possibilities and help them in making a conscious decision. The more important thing of all is that Jyotish can give remedies, when it judges the possibilities are more negative than positive. Such remedies not only eradicate the root of the problem, but also prepare the parents to boldly face the impending dangers. In the forthcoming portions, we shall study, how to prognosticating the birth and life of the children and the remedies to address the impending difficulties and danger to the parents and child.

This can happen due to conjunction.26) The ninth in odd sign indicates many children and Vice versa. Sun and Jupiter becomes the key controller progeny in the saptamsa and thus the procreation.

These planets aspecting Jupiter can block it to the extent of denying (Mars) or delaying (Saturn) the fruits of Jupiter.S. Saturn and / or Venus in the trines to the saptamsa Lagna tend to deny children (J.

Due to the exchange of planets. the 5th lord has to gain three Navamsas to reach Virgo or upto three children should be anticipated (COVA. However. the maraka is aspecting Mercury.

Thus if an odd sign ascends in the Saptamsa. the naisargika putra karaka. the subsequent children will be from the lord of the 7 th. Thus if the first pregnancy is from the 9th house. the sequence of jumps would repeat again. For even sign the sequence becomes 9-7-5-3-1-11-10-8-6-42-12. after the jump sequence reaches from 5th to 3rd. 7th. ‘Kramat’ in the present context means Manduka gati or the frog jump.

If the lord of the sign is neither exalted/ debilitated. the issue is male. Sanjay Rath). Capricorn houses two sisters as indicated by Mercury and Jupiter and should normally have limited the number of elder co-borns. if there is a parivartana of the lord of child with another planet. i. For illustration the 5th lord is placed in the 7th house. if the lord of the child is Venus is placed in Leo. but they have found to indicate female and male children respectively. Mars).

All Odd signs excepting the Aquarius and Gemini are male birth signs while all the even signs. then one among the children shown by them shall survive. If the lord is debilitated or conjoins female planets (Moon. Since the number is actually higher. Ketu. then one of the children indicated by them shall survive. then one of the children shall survive.Sex of the Child: The sex of the child is seen from the lord of the sign ruling the house of pregnancy. in COVA. Page 193). lets say Venus and there is a parivartana of this planet with another Planet. Taurus. the issue is female. If the lord is exalted or conjoin male planets (Sun. the counting will be based on whether the other sign is ODD or EVEN and not the oddity of the Saptamsa Lagna. then the sex of the child indicated by Venus in conjunction with Moon. Page 120) If two lords of the child are placed together. However. let’s say Sun. To illustrate the point he says “However.. However. Page 193) On sex of child If a lord of the child associate with a planet. the next sign Aquarius will indicate the co-born. the sex of the child is seen from the nature of the sign occupied by it. (COVA. Effect of Parivartana On Counting If there is a exchange of house (Parivartana Yoga) between the Saptamsa Lagna lord and the lord of any other house. Pt. For e. with Moon and the lord of Leo.

Saturn and Mercury are eunuch planets. in determining the sex of the child. namely Sun will be more dominant over the lord of the child.. one of the children signified by the 5th and the 7th lords will survive.

however Aries. and the next house of the child happens to be Aries. then the first child will be shown by the lord of the child however. unless. placed with Moon will show a sister who is emotional (Moon) and Rash (Aries). Thus in case of Different Saptamsa Lagna. Had there been no planet. the issues indicated by the planets in the 8th from Venus cannot survive unless conjoins Ketu (Ganapati). as these issues will have Venus in the Marana Sthana (Reference). the 3rd child shown by the 9th lord shall survive and viceversa. when one of the children have been indicated by Mars (House of child – Scorpio). Mars will not show the child. Rath says in COVA. the placement of the lord of the child in the following places cannot survive…. then Aries would have shown male birth. If one planet happens to indicate more than one child. Unless supported by the following planets… Sun Moon Mars Mercury Jupiter Venus Saturn Rahu 2nd 6th 7th 7th 11th 8th 1st 5th Thus the principle states that if the Saptamsa Lagna lord is placed in a Marana karaka Sthana from the Lord of the child. To illustrate his point Pt. The same principle can be extended to other planets. if there is a miscarriage of the first child. the 2nd one will be shown by the house of the child and the planets placed therein. In the present 120.survive and can only be determined from practical events. then either the parent or the child survive. there is a blessings of……… 9 . If Venus becomes the lord of Saptamsa Lagna.

If the lord of the child has good relationship (Sambandha) with the lord of the Saptamsa Lagna. then the parent and the child will become Paraspara Yogakaraka (Mutual Co-workers). the child shall be responsible for the defeat of parents or their loss of wealth. Thus is the lord of the child is placed in the 12th. the child will be staying at a very long distance. Similarly the Marriages of the children can be seen from the Upapadas from the Lord of the children. showing defeats and losses. We know that benefics placed in the 3rd and 6th from the AL in the rasi chart. the sign occupied by the seventh lord should be treated as the Lagna of the child from the second pregnancy. is a bane for materialistic pursuits. being a benefic is placed in the 3rd or 6th from the Saptamsa Lagna or its lord. then this will show that the child will be having some kind of indifferent relationship from the parent and being a house which shows long journey. The same principle can be applied in the saptamsa where. there will be amicable relationship between the parent and the child. whether the child will be helping his/ her parent in their work.Fortune of Children Details regarding the fortunes of individual children can be predicted by treating each of the signs occupied by the lord of the pregnancy as the Lagna. the child will reside in a foreign land away from the parents. if the lord of the child is placed in a Kendra from the Saptamsa Lagna. Thus If the lord of any child is placed in the 7 th from the Saptamsa Lagna. If the lord of the child is placed in the 12 th from the lord of Saptamsa Lagna. taking Pisces as the 12th from the Lagna of child in Aries. However. the placement of the lord of the child from the Saptamsa Lagna will show. the upapada will be placed in Taurus. if the lord of the child. Similarly. the child will oppose the parent. whereas a boon for spiritual pursuits. For example. 10 . For illustration. if the lord of the child is placed in Aries with Jupiter. 12 th is the house which shows rejection of the matters ruled by the planet placed in the 12th from the Lagna.

If the lord of the child is in these places. the upapada plays a crucial role in determining the longevity of the children and continuing the lineage.200).e. the 12th house. Read the last para on page 201 for termination of pregnancies. (COVA.e. representing the native and its placement in the second from Gemini. If Venus conjoins. a premature delivery is indicated and the child will generally survive. In-fact in the horoscopes of such child.4. the child might survive although prematurely delivered (COVA.

Death of children or termination of pregnancies can be seen during the months when Sun is in trines to Upapada as it would active the Mrityupada (Arudha of 8th house) for the children.Controlling house of Child and Marakas The controlling house for children in male charts is the fifth house and in the female charts is the ninth house.. the child may be weak.

There can be loss of pregnancy under following circumstances 1. i. Page . There is a possibility of Severe Setback to the health of the child or presence of Balarista in the horoscope. Venus becomes the lord of the child. by the blessings of Santana Gopala Krsna. Thus fasting on the days ruled by the lord of Upapada is the best remedy against all evils. children will be safely delivered. The lord of the child is in the Maraka Sthana 2. If there is a aspect of the Maraka on the lord of the child. then even if it is placed in the Maraka Sthana. However. the 5th house represents the children and the longevity is shown by the 8 th from the 5th. Venus will be strongly placed and the Dasa of Venus will be very fruitful for these children.

The house of the child is house which determines the pregnancies. In the Rasi chart. The lord of the child conjoins or aspected by the Marakas 3.31) Illustration Treat Gemini as the temporary ascendant of the second pregnancy. The arudha of the 12th house. (COVA.

Pratyantar: The pratyantar dasa planet is normally of a planet in trines to the saptamsa Lagna who invariably contributes the Lagna of the child. 195. 196). Antardasa: The antardasa planet should associate with the lord of the child or placed in trine. Page185). Page 184) 2. Among all the trines which can show the Lagna of the child. If the Dasa planet has rasi drsti on the Saptamsa Lagna lord. the strongest among them shall determine the Lagna. (COVA. the Lagna temporarily shifts to another house and the pratyantar should be judged from the temporary Lagna (COVA. This is also possible. Dasa: The Dasa planet should have benefic argala on the “Saptamsa Lagna lord” or obstruct malefic argala on the same. This yoga results in the childbirth Rider In case there is a parivartana of the Saptamsa Lagna lord with the lord of another house. However the Lagna of the child is to be judged form the trines to the Actual Saptamsa Lagna. The planet having argala on the lord of the child can also show the antardasa of birth of the child. Rasi of the Child The moon sign of the child is generally the quadrant or trine to the Saptamsa Moon. the one who is placed in the Kendra to the Lord of the child shows the highest possibility (COVA 196).

If it is afflicted then it could deny progeny or progenic happiness. logical. we can say that the child is intelligent. 13 . For example.
