Judging Suicidal Tendencies from Horoscope

Sarajit Poddar

PRINCIPLES
1. The fourth house is the house of happiness (Sukha) and a person takes such step as suicide only when he
is facing very troubling time. A person faces such miseries in life, if the 4th house is placed with malefics
such as Sun. Mars. Saturn. Rahu. This also generates Matsya yoga, which makes a person very
compassionate and makes him understand others sorrow. If the 4th house is afflicted by Papakartari yoga,
then also the person suffers misery. If the lord of the Sign in Mar ana Avastha or the in Debilitation or
defeated in planetanj fight then it is incapable of protecting its house from evil influences. The person
suffers a lot if the kanaka of 4th and 5th. Moon and jupiter are also afflicted.
2. The 5th house is the house of Chitta (inner self) and this shows how much harmony do we have within
our self. If this is afflicted then the person can become insane. The person who is peaceful within can take
more miseries than someone who is not. It is not a good thing to have enemies of jupiter in the 5th such as
Saturn or Rahu.
3. In the previous step I only talked of the natural nature of planets. However, in the happening of this life,
the functional nature of the planets have a lot more say. The lords of Dusthanas afflict the houses, where
the]/ are placed, with problems from enemies (6th) from our own past karma and weaknesses (Sth) or past
debts. If the lord of any houses are placed in these dusthanas. the]/ also suffer similar fate.
4. Badhaka is very important for the matters of health and such things. Badhaka represent unknown evil
forces, such as black majic or similar things. If Badhaka is placed in the 5th house, there is high likelihood
that the person can go insane. Similarly the lords of the houses suffer because of the mentioned things, if
the]/ are placed in the badhaka sthana.
5. In all the cases, one has to see the reinforcing factors and salvaging factors. The factors which can
reinforce evil is papakartkari yoga, aspect of natural malefics or placemen t of natural malefics in strength
in the kendras or trines to the bhava. The factors which salvage are the lord of the house, kanaka of the house
aspecting the bhava or placed in kendra or trikona to the house, aspect of natural benefics etc. One has to
study all these before finally pron uncing the results. The exten t of affliction shall decide, the level of affect
on the houses under consideration.

Suicide tendencies are seen when the fourth house is under affiction. 4th is the sukha-sthana and
affliction to that house cause depression which might culminate in suicide. In the horoscope, we
find that the 4th house is under heavy affliction because of Satum-Mars fight and the lord of 4th
has gone to debility. The 5th house shows inner harmony and such thing like suicide can occur if
there is strong internal unrest and turmoil. We see that the 5th lord is placed in Amavasya yoga
and aspect by Rahu (the dire enemy of the Karaka Jupiter) from the 9th house. More to this the
Karaka for inner harmony Jupiter is placed in the Rahu's house and in the 8th from the Sign,
sufficiently weak to protect its significance.
This person died by drinking alcohol. Can we find out why- Alcohol? A person can be addicted to
alcohol if Saturn (karaka for Alcohol) aspects the lagna by Graha Drsti (Desire to take alcohol).
The cause of death can be found from the stronger of AL and A7 (3rd and 8th from them). Here
A7 is stronger and hence 3rd and 8th from it can show the cause of death. 3rd from A7 is empty
but aspected by Gulika and Mandi who rules poison.The 8th house is aspected by Rahu and Ketu
and the house being Saturnine. Showing that the native has faced a difficult death, whereby he
poisoned him by overdrinking of Alcohol.The aspect of Rahu on 8th on a saturnine house is a
sure case of Dustamarana (Bad death) Yoga.

Here we see that three benefics are placed in the 4th and although Sun is placed, it is weak
because of debilitation. This shows a good fourth house. However, this doesnot remain the same
when we cognise the presence of the Malefics Rahu and Saturn in the 12th and 2nd, causing
papakartari yoga. More than that, you notice the functional nature of the planets now. Merc is 3rd
and 12th lord, Sim is a maraka and Jupiter is the 6th lord. Venus is although the lord of 4th is also
the badhakesh. Now you can see that functionally all of them are causing troubles.
As 1 mentioned before Saturn's placement in the 5th is not a good thing as it opposes the force of
Jupiter to keep the inside of the person at peace. Now this evil is fortified by the Saturn- Mars
opposition, showing tremendous internal conflicts and teimoil, which has caused enough
restlessness inside him. Moon is the only salvaging planet as it is aspecting both the 4th and 5th
house by graha and rasi drsti, showing that the native's mother could only confort him from the
trouble.
To see the circumstances of death, we see that AL is stronger than A7. From AL, 3rd is not
occupied but aspected by the nodes and the 8th is occupied by violent Mars. The aspect of Nodes
indicate un-natural death (Rahu) and mistake (Ketu) and the involvement of Sagittarius shows
falling from height. Mars influence shows use of power or such violent means. The native died
with hanging himself. 1 think the planetary postions justify it well.

The Lagna is placed with Mars and Ketu showing pisacha badha, whereby both the Lagna and
Moon is afflicted. This shows use of black majic or such things on the native. The protector of the
Lagna, the lagna lord is placed in the Badhaka S than a, showing the strength of the yoga for
suffering from black majic. The 4th and 5th lords are placed in the 6th, showing that the native
might be troubled by the enemies. Now the salvaging factors are the placement of the Sun, Me
and Jup in the kendra to the Lagna and their aspect on the 4th and 5th house. Moreover Jupiter is
exalted and is causing fruitful gajakeshari yoga. Thus the three planet combinaton, Jup, Sun and
Mercury can help the native.
The best thing about this is that, Jupiter is the ista devata of the native and is placed with the
Atmakaraka Sun. So worshipping someone represented by Jupiter, on a Monday (Jup, placed in
Moon's sign) in Jupiter's hora, can take the person out from the troubles he is facing because of
Black majic etc.

Atmakaraka Sun. So worshipping someone represented by Jupiter, on a Monday (Jup, placed in
Moon's sign) in Jupiter's hora, can take the person out from the troubles he is facing because of
Black majic etc. The aquarius shoola dasa is going to start on 12-08-2003, where the trouble shall
increase and the native is strongly advised to take any remedy. After the next dasa starts, terrible
rudra yoga shall also manifest, causing accidents, problems of blood etc. Doing rudraabhishekam in a shiva temple is the only remedy to the Rudra yoga.
