- Kalyana Varma mentions in Saravali.
If the 5th Bhava be a sign owned by Saturn
or Mercury, and is aspected by or associated with mandi or
Saturn, the person concerned will have a son by adoption. The
same will be the result, when the lord of the 5th house is weak
and is not connected in any way with the lords of the 1st and 7th
- Jataka Parijata says in Chapter 13
If the Moon be in a malefic Rasi and the lord of the 5th
bhava be in the 9th and if the lord of the Lagna be
in a Trikona, there will be a son by adoption.

The above combinations occurring in Divisional charts also create a
strong Yoga for Adoption.
Adoption of a girl child :
Balance of 10years 11months 29days of Mercury Dasa at birth
Here, lord of the ascendant Sun joined with Mercury has reduced the
ability to procreate; lord of fifth joining with malefic Rahu gave
strength to Anapatya Yoga. As per Sage Parasara, Saturn placed in
own house in Rasi, but in the house of Venus in Navamsa gave
strength to adoption of a girl child. Also, a strong benefic
positioned in fifth(Jupiter) without being aspected by another
benefic gives way for adoption (vide Rule 14 as above).
In India, if a woman is unable to conceive, she is looked down with
great disdain. This may be because of Anapathya dosha(childlessness)
in her chart. This can be deciphered from the following combinations
in a womans chart :
a. Venus and Moon either join with Saturn or Mars in the ascendant
or being aspected by them makes a woman barren.
b. Sun placed in eighth to the Ascendant, Moon placed in own house
indicates that the woman will not beget children.
c. Own houses of Saturn and Mars being Capricorn, Aquarius, Aries
and Scorpio being the ascendant of the native and Venus
and Moon are either posited in it or
aspecting it, strengthens Anapathya yoga for woman.
A woman might decide to use a surrogate for the following Medical
- She may have medical problems with her uterus.
- She may have had a hysterectomy i.e., removal of uterus.
- There may be conditions that make pregnancy impossible or
medically risky, because of severe heart disease etc.
By opting child by surrogacy, the wife does not have to go through
the physical and emotional pain of miscarriages, if she cannot give
birth naturally. With the advancement of Medical science, there are
many methods, which can help the couple get a baby, that
biologically belongs to them. Astrology can also put some light or
direction regarding the child-birth through Surrogacy.
5th house is the house of children. Basically the Watery signs are
considered fertile, along with Taurus and Libra to some extent;
Jupiter, Venus and the Moon are considered beneficial, if
well-situated. When 5th house and its lord, natural significator of
children Jupiter, Putrakarak in Jaimini are strong in the birth
chart of father, child birth is confirmed. If Divisional charts like
Navamsa and saptamsa also confirm this, then the native will have
children. But when there is malefic influence in the birth chart of
female indicating problem in child-birth or bearing pregnancy or
fertilisation process, adoption or surrogacy are indicated. In such
cases, when the male is having the good combinations to become a
biological father, he can go for child birth by third one, known as
But it is interesting to note that not only childless parents, but
also couples who are having children of their own are also going for
surrogacy, to have another child. In such case, the yoga for
childnessness may or may not be present in the charts of such
natives, depending on the need for surrogacy.
Jataka Parijata :
there be a planet in the 5th bhava possessing full strength and
the lord of the 5th be unaspected by any planet, then the person
concerned will have sons by adoption and other ways.
Jatakaabharanam (Chapter on
Putrabhava phala) :
Saturns own places

Saturn placed in it and aspected by Moon indicates adopted son.
Saturn, if placed thus, is aspected by Mercury, it indicates
adoption, through purchase.(paying money for adoption or to
