Adoption and Surrogacy
By Dr.CH.D.RAVINDRA NATH

Planetary combinations responsible for child adoption :

  • Ketu in the 12th to Jupiter or conjunct Jupiter with less degree
  • The 5th lord or 5th house conjunct with the 6th, 8th or 12th lords and in Papakartari Yoga
  • The 5th house being in a sign of Mars occupied by Saturn and Rahu
  • 5th lord occupying a house of Mercury, and Jupiter being placed in one of the houses of Mercury
 
BIRTH of children is considered to be a great blessing and feelings of those not having a child can better be imagined than described. If there are no natural issues, adoption or begetting a child through surrogacy is the next possibility.

For adoption of a child, there are many combinations in Astrology. Here are some combinations, which indicate that a person may not be able to beget a child on his own, but may go for adoption.

References for Adoption in Classics

Sage Parasara in Hora sastra in Sloka 9 of Chapter 17 says:

“Saturn if placed either own house, fifth house or in Houses of Mercury or either joined with Mandi causes yoga for adoption”.

 
Case-study 1

Case Study

Mercury dasa balance at birth: 14years 4months 19days.
(Ref: Three hundred Important combinations by Dr B.V. Raman, Chart 101)


In case-study 1, lord of the ascendant (Saturn), lord of 7th (Moon) and Jupiter are not strong causing Anapatya Yoga (Childlessness). Lord of the 7th (Moon) is in the 11th. The 5th lord Venus joins a benefic and Saturn occupies the 5th along with Mandi caused Yoga for adoption to this native.

  • 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 houses”.

  • 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”.

Adoption of a girl child :
Case Study

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).

Surrogacy

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 woman’s 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 reasons :

  • 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 surrogate mother.

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 :

“If 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) :

“Saturn’s own places (Capricorn and Aquarius), if happen to be the fifth bhava and 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 surrogate mother?)”.
 
Astro factors :
Surrogacy is another way of begetting children other than through adoption. In astrological texts this was mentioned “having a child in other ways”. It is a method of reproduction, whereby a woman agrees to become pregnant and deliver a child for a contracted party. She may be the child’s genetic mother (the more traditional form of surrogacy), or she may, as a gestational carrier, carry the pregnancy to delivery, after having been implanted with an embryo; in some jurisdictions, it may be an illegal medical procedure.

According to Jataka Parijata
“If 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 in the Chapter Putrabhava phala says

“Saturn’s own places (Capricorn and Aquarius), if happen to be the fifth bhava and 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 surrogate mother?)”.

The Surrogate mother sacrifices her motherhood believing that the child will grow up in a rich family. Many surrogate mothers are gestational carriers. A gestational carrier becomes pregnant through IVF and gives birth to a baby that is not biologically related to her. An embryo is created using either the intended parents’ or donor’s gametes (egg and sperm). The surrogate mother’s eggs are not used. The embryo is created using very specialized assisted reproductive technology. One or more of these embryos is then transferred into the surrogate mother’s womb. The surrogate mother becomes pregnant and gives birth with the love and support of the intended parents, and the intended parents go home with their bundle of joy!

Surrogacy is mainly of two types---Gestational surrogacy (also known as host or full surrogacy), which was first achieved in April 1986 and Traditional surrogacy (also known as partial, genetic, or straight surrogacy). In Gestational surrogacy, the pregnancy results from the transfer of an embryo created by in vitro fertilization (IVF), in a manner so the resulting child is genetically unrelated to the surrogate. Gestational surrogates are also referred to as Gestational Carriers. In Traditional surrogacy, the surrogate is impregnated naturally or artificially, but the resulting child is genetically related to the surrogate. In the United States, Gestational surrogacy is more common than Traditional surrogacy and is considered less legally complex.

Case-studies of Surrogate parents: These are celebrities.

Case Study

Balance of 1 year 4 months and 4 days of Moon Dasa at birth.


Case-study : 3
The native is blessed with two children. Natural Putrakaraka and lord of 5th house is Jupiter and it is placed in benefic eleventh house and aspected by another auspicious planet Venus. This assured a strong yoga for parenthood. But, this native opted Traditional surrogacy to have another child, as the health of his spouse is not allowing to have another pregnancy. According to the famous dictum of Sage Parasara (Sloka 9 Chapter 17 as mentioned in earlier pages), Saturn if placed either in own house, fifth house or in Houses of Mercury or either joined with Mandi causes yoga for adoption.

Case Study

Balance of 4 years 6 months and 11days of Saturn Dasa at birth.


Case-study 4:
Here, Seventh lord Sun along with Saturn is stationed in the Ascendant; it being aspected by Mars resulted in the native opting Surrogacy, vide point No.18, as mentioned above. This native is blessed with children, as the fifth lord Mercury is comfortably placed in the 2nd, before going for surrogacy.

Case Study

Balance of 7years 7 months and 5days of Moon dasa at Birth.


Case-study 5
The fifth lord Venus is placed in an angle and Putrakaraka Jupiter is placed in the 5th, resulted in strong yogas for parenthood. This native is blessed with children. Note the following two factors: (i) strong benefic (Jupiter) placed in the 5th is not being aspected by another benefic(Venus), vide rule No.14 above and (ii) Moon occupying the sign of Saturn, and Mercury standing in a trinal relation with Saturn, without any point of strength (Vide Rule 16 as above) resulted in the native opting Surrogacy to have another child, in addition to his normal children.

Surrogacy is a boon for childless couples but there are many legal factors around it that must be kept in mind. Surrogate mothers are not respected, because they sell their womb in exchange for money. But what people do not realise is that through surrogacy, they not only empower themselves financially, but help someone build a new family as well. Many couples feel ashamed to admit that their baby is not conceived naturally. But they fail to realise that a baby born through IVF surrogacy, will share both their biological characteristics. The surrogate is just a carrier for the child-birth.
