There was a request on how we can predict the timing of Child Birth or timing of planning a Child from someone’s chart. Let’s try to understand this today on the basis of following points –
Duration of Time Line
5th House and 5th House lord.
9th House and 9th House Lord.
Important Houses for 2nd Child & so on.
Moon & Jupiter.
Saturn & Rahu’s impact.
Let’s cover all points one after the other –
Girl’s Chart – 1st of all, for matter of child birth, we need to give preference to the chart of Girl rather than Boy’s chart. It is for the simple reason that Girl is going to conceive, bear and deliver the child. So, her chart must support possibility of child birth to manifest the event. If there are medical issues involved then manifestation of event will obviously depend on both charts.
Duration of Timeline – Then whenever we are trying to predict a timeline for a girl to have a child, we should consider duration of at least 1 year which supports the child birth throughout. For example, if I am predicting a child’s birth then I should tell the girl that she can plan a child within June, 2017 to June, 2018. Such long time lines cover the whole period of conception, bearing and delivering the child. This prediction means that whole of 1 year is supporting the child birth. To better understand it, suppose someone is going through Jupiter AD and I hurriedly predicted child birth for a girl as Jupiter represents Children then it is not a good prediction because that AD of Jupiter can change in 3-4 months and next AD of Saturn may not support a child birth. In that case, it may lead to situations like miscarriage or abortions. So, whenever you see a timeline of child birth, make sure that timeline is supporting child birth for at least an year.
5th House and 5th House lord – 5th House is main house related to Children but it is actually the house related with birth of 1st child only. For the birth of 2nd and subsequent children, we need to see other houses. So, when it comes to birth of 1st child, we must consider 5th house, planets there and 5th house lord.
9th House and 9th House Lord – Likewise, 9th House is Bhavat Bhavam of 5th House. So, we need to take 9th house, planets there and 9th house lord in to consideration. But always give preference to 5th house as it is primary house of child birth. 9th house comes later in consideration.
Important Houses for 2nd Child & so on – Now, question arises about houses related with birth of 2nd child and so on? So, who is your 2nd child? He/She is younger sibling of your 1st child. House of Younger Sibling is 3rd house. So, 2nd Child will be seen by 7th house (3rd from 5th house – younger sibling of 1st child), 3rd Child will be seen by 9th house (3rd house from 7th house – younger sibling of 2nd child) and so on. At the same time, 5th house remains important in consideration for birth of all Children because it is house which represents Uterus area of Girl’s body. So, we have to consider 5th house for any child’s birth as it is the house related to conception of child. So, if it is 2nd child look at 5th house & 7th house both, if it is 3rd child look at 5th house & 9th house both and so on.
Moon & Jupiter – Moon is karaka of Motherhood and Jupiter is karaka of Children. So, their positions in chart and dashas are going to be most important for child birth.
Putra Karaka – Putra Karaka is planet with 5th highest degree of chart, besides Rahu/Ketu. It is known as Significator of Child. For Child Birth prediction, we have to take this planet, its position and dasha into consideration.
Mahadasha/Antardasha – Now, after taking all these planets into consideration, we need to see that when these planets are getting activated as per dashas which will also activate the relevant houses or karakas of child birth. It is not necessary that whole Mahadasha should support child birth. Even if person is going through an Antardasha of Jupiter or Moon for about 1 or 1.5 years, then also it can be a predictable time period for child birth if other conditions are satisfied.
Transits – Then most importantly, the transits of these planets, i.e. 5th house lord, Jupiter, & Putra Karaka etc, should indicate (aspect/transit) towards 5th house as it becomes the house of conception of child. In some cases, I have seen these planets indicating towards 4th house also resulting in the child birth as 4th house represents Mother and Motherhood. So, it is quite understandable. So, we need to be inclusive in approach and keep transits in 4th house also in consideration but preference should be 5th house always. Also, Jupiter-Saturn joint impact during transit on 5th house, 5th lord or any other planet related to child birth, as discussed above, is biggest indication towards Child Birth, but it may not be the situation always that Jupiter-Saturn will jointly impact 5th house or 5th lord or any other planet related to child birth. In that situation, we have to see their impact on different planets or houses which are of same nature or indicating same events. Like Jupiter may be transiting over 5th house and Saturn may be transiting over Putra Karaka of birth chart during same time. So, they both are impacting different houses or planets but those houses or planets represent same results, i.e. Child Birth. We can use this analysis for any event like Saturn transiting 7th house and Jupiter transiting over dara karaka.
So finally, when the dashas activate the houses/planets related with child birth and during the same dasha, transits of same planets related with child birth impact 5th house of conception of child then it is biggest indication of probable child birth.
Saturn's & Rahu’s Impact – Last but not the least, If Saturn is impacting 5th house or 5th lord or Putra Karaka then child birth may be delayed. If Rahu is impacting 5th house or 5th lord or Putra Karaka, then person may need medical assistance to have a child. Rahu impacting these things also indicate child through unusual methods like Adoption, Test-Tube Baby or Surrogacy etc.
Date/Time of Child Birth - Finally, though this is out of context but still somewhat related to Child Birth. These days people prefer to decide a day for Child Birth as majority of Child Birth is through C-Section. I also get these requests now a days to give the perfect Muhurt for Surgery. Though there is nothing wrong for a parent to secure well-being of a child but I am of the opinion that we should leave this matter into God's hands and in the hands of Doctors. They are experts as per medical science and they know which is best time for child to come out in the world. Let Child live his/her own destiny. Also, if we think that by deciding Child's date/time of birth, we are going to change his/her destiny then believe me, we can't make difference of even a Centimeter. So, let it be God's Wish or Doctor's wish, whom we consider God's on Earth.
Hope this helps. Please post your comments or queries, if any.
