n recent times, the majority of parents, having teenage children, have come to consult me on the future of their children. The main question is 1. Will my son/daughter go abroad for studies/employment? 2. If so, will he/ she settle there permanently or it would be only a temporary stay?
An astrologer can say whether the native would be
blessed with a child in the near future or delayed or
denied, through so many ways, which are explained in
astrological classics. Analyze mainly the 5th house/
bhava from Lagna/Moon of a natal chart, 5th lord,
strength of Lagna lord, Jupiter, Bheeja Sphuta (for
male), Kshetra Sphuta (for female) and aspects on it.
From Dasa/Bhukti and Gochara, the period of child
birth can be assessed.
In system JAYA:
1. Rasi is considered the Tree, the Nakshatras the roots and the Navamsa the fruits. It may be a Mango tree,
but if the roots are sick, it may not yield fruits. A healthy tree, even if it has good roots, may be sterile. The
Navamsa is indicative of such a situation existing. Study of these three charts is mandatory, before finalizing
a synthesized prediction.
2. Any Graha or Bhava is not totally malefic or totally beneficial. They could be malefic for some of the Kaarakatwas and beneficial for some others and neutral to some.
3. It is well known that no single rule of astrology should lead to a conclusion. An accurate prediction is a result of the art of synthesizing of several scientific astrological rules that are found applicable in a chart. The more the numbers of rules applied in a chart, the more confident the astrologer would be to give a positive prediction.

Conclusion:The person has every chance of going abroad. The travel would be related to professional
opportunity and companion/associate may be helpful for this.(Mercury lord of 7,10) The affliction of
fourth house indicates permanent settlement abroad.
Facts: Though the parents did not have the means for sending the person abroad, he provided for
himself. He secured foreign employment contacts. His college-mate girl friend, who secured a job
abroad, provided free residence. Now he is married, has bought a flat and well settled in USA. The
travel took place in the period Mercury - Saturn- Rahu, in Dec 2011.Note the exalted Saturn is in
Rahu-Ketu axis in the Nakshatra of Jupiter in Rasi and in the First in Navamsa.
Dasa at Birth: Mars 5 years 11 months 23 days
Mercury in the Nakshatra of Rahu
and associated with Saturn, the lord of Ninth
and Venus, the lord of the Twelfth
in the Rasi chart . In t he Navamsa chart ,Mercury is
associated with lord of First
and Saturn, the lord of Seventh.
Jupiter is in the star of Jupiter
, has an aspect on the twelfth
. In the Navamsa, Jupiter has an aspect on the Twelfth
. It receives the aspect of Mars, lord of the Ninth

; it is in the Nakshatra of Saturn, lord of the Ninth
. It receives the aspect of Saturn, lord of the Ninth
In the Navamsa, it is in the First
, with Moon, lord of the Twelfth
and Mars, lord of the Ninth.
Seventh Bhava: Rahu
is posited in the seventh. Seventh Bhava Lord Mars in the Ninth
is exalted and has an aspect on the First Bhava
. In the Navamsa, seventh
house receives the aspect of Rahu
. The seventh lord is associated with the Lord of the First

, is exalted in the ninth. Ninth lord Saturn is associated with Venus lord of the First
. In the Navamsa, Mars, lord of the
ninth, is in the First
and associated with Moon lord of the Twelfth
The link between the twelfth and ninth
and the aspect of relevant planet Jupiter have already been taken into consideration in the Grahas and hence not
repeated. Repetition is avoided similarly of the Twelfth in the Navamsa. Repetitions artificially increase the number of positive points, leading to error in judgment
In the Rasi, Sun the 4th lord is in an inimical sign and associated with inimical Saturn and Venus. Natural Malefic Mars has an aspect on the fourth. The fourth is
afflicted in the Rasi. In the Navamsa
, the fourth lord Mars, a natural Malefic, has an aspect
on the fourth. It is associated with inimical Rahu. The fourth house receives the aspect of the eighth lord Jupiter. The fourth house in the Navamsa is also afflicted.(Rule 2a)
Ninth lord has an aspect on the fourth, both in Rasi and Navamsa. Seventh lord, a natural malefic, has an aspect on the fourth in the Rasi (Rule 2b)
Conclusion: The prediction is that the native will certainly go abroad, having a strong desire to do so. Education and profession abroad are indicated. Eventually, the person will settle down abroad. Jupiter Dasa has started and so travel may take place any time now. The bukthi of Saturn in Jupiter dasa starts in April 2020, when the most significant travel may take place. The bhukti of Mercury starts in October 2022, when the professional opportunity abroad will materialize.
Once these predictions are fulfilled in the not very distant future, the facts will be given through the columns of this Esteemed Magazine. I may be wrong; I may be right; but I have no doubts.
Jyotish colleagues can try their own research/experiments with these rules also. The ongoing research projects, with the assistance of my students in UK, France and Germany are: Early detection of Breast Cancer, Autism through System JAYA.
