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.

The same principle can be extended to other planets. then either the parent or the child survive. 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. and the next house of the child happens to be Aries. the placement of the lord of the child in the following places cannot survive…. unless. Mars will not show the child. then Aries would have shown male birth. then the first child will be shown by the lord of the child however. 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. there is a blessings of……… 9 . the issues indicated by the planets in the 8th from Venus cannot survive unless conjoins Ketu (Ganapati).

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

Pratyantar: The pratyantar dasa planet is normally of a planet in trines to the saptamsa Lagna who invariably contributes the Lagna of the child. Dasa: The Dasa planet should have benefic argala on the “Saptamsa Lagna lord” or obstruct malefic argala on the same. Among the planets who are placed in the sign determining the Lagna. the Lagna temporarily shifts to another house and the pratyantar should be judged from the temporary Lagna (COVA.
