A horoscope is doomed either it is afflicted with malefic combinations(Yogas) or aspects leading to immoral character, poverty, diseases or untimely death.
When the lords of gains houses that are ascendant, 2,5,9,11 exchange positions with dusthana houses 6,8,12 it leads to loss of wealth in rivalry, diseases and wanderings.
Combinations for Penury
The native will be penniless if the ascendant lord is in the 12th as the 12th lord is in the ascendant along with a Maraka lord (death
inflicting planet) or be in aspect to such a planet.
The native will be penniless if the ascendant lord is in the 6th while the 6th lord is in the ascendant with conjunction or aspect of a
Should the ascendant or the Moon be with Ketu while the ascendant lord is in the 8th, the person concerned will be penniless.
If the ascendant lord along with a malefic is in the 6th, 8th, or 12th, while the 2nd lord is in an enemy's sign or in debilitation,
even a native of royal scion will become penniless.
If the ascendant lord is conjunct an evil house (one of the 6th, 8th, and 12th lords) or Saturn and be devoid of benefic aspect the
native will be penniless.
Should the 5th and 9th lords be respectively found in the 6th and 12th and be in aspect to Maraka planets, the native will be penniless.
Death is mainly associated with 3rd and 8th house and presence of Maraka planets in them and hemming of luminaries by malefics and association with nodes and Dusthana houses leads to premature death or family disruptions.
Evils at Birth
EARLY DEATH: Should all the malefics be in the oriental half while benefics are in the occidental half, early death of one born in
Scorpio will follow.
Malefics in the 12th and the 6th, or in the 8th and the 2nd, while the ascendant is hemmed between other malefics will bring early death.
Malefics occupying the ascendant and the 7th while the Moon is conjunct a malefic with no relief from a benefic will also cause
Early death will be inflicted on the native if decrease in Moon is in the ascendant while malefics capture the 8th and an angle. There is
no doubt about that.
The Moon in the ascendant, 8th, 12th, or the 7th and hemmed between malefics will confer premature death.
Should the Moon be in the ascendant hemmed between two malefics while the 7th or the 8th has a malefic in it, the child will face
immediate death along with its mother.
Should Saturn, the Sun and Mars be in the 12, 9th, and 8th without benefic's aspect, the child will face instant death.
With a malefic in the 7th house or in the rising decanate while decreasing Moon is in the ascendant, death will be expected early.
The life span of the child will be either 2 months or 6 months only, if all planets devoid of strength are relegated to Apoklima
houses (i.e. 3rd, 6th, 9th, and 12th).
THREE KINDS OF LIFE SPANS: short, medium, and long. 10-14. O Brahmin,
I tell you further about Marakas. Narrated earlier are three kinds of
life spans, viz. short, medium, and long. Short life is before 32
years, later on up to 64 it is medium life, and from 64 to 100 it is
long life. Beyond 100 the longevity is called supreme. O excellent of
the Brahmins, it is impossible to decide upon longevity till the
native is 20 years old. Till such year the child should be protected
by sacred recitations, religious offerings (of ghee etc. to
consecrated fire as prescribed by Vedas etc.) and medical treatments,
for premature death may descend on the child due to sins of father or
mother or of its own (in the previous birth). 15-21. I further
mention about the Maraka planets. One born with short life
combinations may face death in the Dasa denoted by Vepat star (3rd
from birth star); one of medium life may die in the dasa denoted by
Pratyak star (5th from birth star). In the dasa denoted by Vadha star
(7th from birth star), one with long life may obtain his end. The dasa
of the lord of 22nd decanate or the one of 23rd, 3rd, 5th, or 7th
asterisms may also cause death. The lords of the 2nd and 12th counted
from the Moon sign may bring death, this is true when the said ruler
is a malefic and if he be a benefic there will be (only) diseases (but
not death). Death may come to pass in the dasa of 6th lord and in the
sub periods of 6th,8th, and 12th lords. Should there be many Marakas
(endowed with the power of killing) and be strong, there will be
diseases, miseries etc. in the respective major and sub periods. Thus
these are Marakas (as above) and are primarily related to descend
death upon the native. According to their dispositions there may be
death or difficulties.
NODES: RAHU AND KETU AS MARAKAS: If Rahu or Ketu be in the ascendant,
7th, 8th, or 12th thereof, or be in the 7th from a Maraka lord or be
with such a planet, they acquire powers of killing in their major or
25-31. THIRD HOUSE AND DEATH: O excellent of Brahmins, if the Sun,
being with strength, is in the 3rd house from the ascendant, one will
obtain his death due to a king (or legal punishments). The Moon in the
3rd will cause death due to tuberculosis while wounds, weapons, fire,
and thirst will cause death through Mars in the 3rd. If the 3rd be
aspected or occupied by Saturn and Rahu, death will be through poison,
water or fire, or fall from heights or confinement. Death will surely
come to descend through insects or leprosy if the Moon and Gulika
occupy or aspect the 3rd house. Mercury aspecting or occupying the 3rd
will bring death following fever. Jupiter in the 3rd or aspecting the
3rd will cause death by swelling or tumors. Urinary diseases will
cause death if Venus is in the 3rd or aspects the 3rd. Many planets
aspecting or occupying will bring death through many diseases.
35-36. OCCUPANTS OF THE 8TH HOUSE: Note the occupant of the 8th house
from the ascendant. If it is the Sun, death will be through fire, the
Moon water, Mars weapons, Mercury fever, Jupiter diseases, Venus
hunger, and Saturn thirst.
Other than these, conjunctions of the node Rahu with other important planets like Sun, Jupiter, Mars, Saturn creates Pitra, Guru-Chandal, Angarak, Shrapit Dosha respectively each having different negative impacts on the person. Further, lot of aspects like strengths, dashas of planets are also to be analyzed before concluding, whether the effects(good and bad) of specific formation will unwind fully or its countered by other formations.
