After carefully taking into account which of the above planetary dispositions
are more predominant and after considering the nature of the malefics occupying
the 5th and 8th house from the Lagna, a final decision should be taken about the
longevity of the native.
14. Note the following 3 pairs (A) the decanate signs of the Lagna and the
Moon. (B) the Navamsa signs of the lord of the Lagna and lord of the sign
occupied by the Moon and (C) the Dwadasasma signs of the lord of the Lagna and
of the lord of the 8th house.
The life of the child should be pronounced as Deergha, Madhya and Alpa
according as (a) when one of the signs in the said 3 pairs is a moveable sign and
the other is a moveable fixed or dual sign, (b) when one of the signs is fixed and

sign and the other is a fixed, dual or moveable sign respectively.

If they be in Panphara house the native will have Madhyayu.
If they be in Apoklima house, the native will have Alpayu.
If the lord of the 8th house and all malefics be posited in Kendra house the
native will have Alphyu.
If they be posited in Panaphara house, the native will have Madhyayu.
If they be posited in Apoklima house, the native will enjoy Deerghayu.
Find out if the following 3 pairs of planets are mutualy friends, neutrals or
(a) The lord of the sign in which the Moon is posited and the lord of the 8th
house from the Moon sign.
(b) The lord of the Lagna and the lord of the 8th house.

The native will enjoy Deerghayu if they are mutually friends. He will have
Madhyayu if they are mutually neutrals and will have Alpayu if they are mutually
16. The native will be longlived (enjoy Deerghayu) if —

(2) The lord of the rising Navamsa be stronger than the lord of the 8th from
(3) If the lord of the sign occupied by the Moon be stronger than the lord of
the 8th from the Moon,
(4) If the lord of the Moon’s Navamsa be stronger than Ihe lord of the 8th
If otherwise, the reverse will be the result.
17. If the lord of the 8th house endowed with greater strength than the lord
of the lagna, be posited in Kendra and malefics occupy the 8th and the 12th, the
native will be shortlived even if he gets medicum life or prolog his life to the full
period, his life will be the vicissitudes of happiness and misery.
18. Add the longitudes of the Sun, the Moon, Jupiter and Saturn. For
example the following are the longitudes given in a horoscope.
Sun – 7-26, Moon – 11-20, Jupiter – 6-14, Saturn – 0-17, 26 or 2-7 that 7
degrees of Gemini.
If the native has alpayu the end of his life will come when Saturn in transit
reaches the first cycle of 7 degrees of Gemini.
19. If the lord of the Lagna be associated with a maleifc and be eclipsed by
the Sun’s rays, or be in his sign of debilitation or in an inimical sign, the death of
the native will have to be pronounced, when the same lord in his transit happens to
occupy the 6th, 8th or 12th or the Lagna or be some how connected with it. The
same event may also be deduced from the Navamsa Lagna, the decanate Lagna or
the sign in which the Moon be posited.
20. If the Moon, the lord of the sign occupied by her and the lord of the
Lagna be all well placed by being associated with or aspected by benefics and
passed many points of strength, the birth at that time should be treated very
auspicious and will make* the native happy in every way.
21. If the lord of the Lagna possesses great strength and be unaspected by
(or associated with) malefics and be aspected by (or associated with) benefics,
occupies a kendra house, the death is warded off and the native secures a long life
with good qualities, wealth and an illusttrious or powerful sovereignty
22. If Jupiter, the Minister of Gods, possessed of great strength and with
brilliant rays be posited in Lagna, he can singly ward off many of the evils which
otherwise would be difficult to overcome, just as a humble salutation placed with
all sincerity before lord Vishnu demolishes all evils.
23. If the birth be in bright half of the lumar month (Shukla Paksha) and the
Moon be posited in 1st, 4th, 5th, 7th, 9th, 10th or the 11th in Cancer, Leo,
Sagittarius or Pisces Navamsa, many evils endangering life of the native are
demolished and the birth becomes very auspicious.
24. If in any nativity, there be no malefics in kendra, trikona and the 8th
house and the lord of Lagna and Jupiter posited in kendra, the native performs
virtuous actions, enjoys all kinds of happiness and remains in good health with a
life span of 100 years.
