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.

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. placed with Moon will show a sister who is emotional (Moon) and Rash (Aries). the placement of the lord of the child in the following places cannot survive….

Rath says in COVA. the issues indicated by the planets in the 8th from Venus cannot survive unless conjoins Ketu (Ganapati). Thus in case of Different Saptamsa Lagna. when one of the children have been indicated by Mars (House of child – Scorpio). there is a blessings of……… 9 . The same principle can be extended to other planets. if there is a miscarriage of the first child. Mars will not show the child.

If one planet happens to indicate more than one child.survive and can only be determined from practical events. then either the parent or the child survive. and the next house of the child happens to be Aries.
the child will oppose the parent. 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. Thus If the lord of any child is placed in the 7 th from the Saptamsa Lagna.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 be staying at a very long distance.

If the lord of the child is placed in the 12 th from the lord of Saptamsa Lagna. the sign occupied by the seventh lord should be treated as the Lagna of the child from the second pregnancy.
