Chandra and Sadyorishta, Infant Mortality

8th bhava indicates longevity. If the lord of 8th joins the 12th with a malefic short life is indicated.
It will be the same if lagna lord joins 8th lord in 6th house.

Weak and waning Chandra in 12th and malefics in lagna and 8th house and no benefic planets in Kendras cause early death.
Weak and waning Chandra in Lagna not aspected by Benefic planets, if kendras or 8th house are occupied by malefics early death.
If Chandra got papakartari yoga and occupies 4th or 7h or 8th houses without benefic aspect causes early death.
The weak Chandra, in conjunction with malefics deposited in lagna,7th,8th or 12th house, and no single benefic in Kendra causes early death.
The weak and waning Chandra in 6th or 8th aspected by malefics causes early death.
If Chandra in lagna and Ravi, Kuja and Sani are in 7th early death is expected.

Chandra in lagna and in papakartari yoga and malefics in 7th or 8th houses causes death of the child as well as its mother.
Chandra with malefics in lagna or 7th or 8th or 12th houses, devoid of benefic position in Kendra, causes early death of the child.
If Sani occupies the 12th, Ravi the 9th house, Chandra Lagna, and Kuja the 8th house it causes early death of the child.
If the maraka planets are in exaltation, in moolatrikona or in swakshetra, its dasa or bhukti is dangerous.

Even Guru may occupy the lagna, but if Chandra be in 8, 12, 6th bhava and aspected by malefic, Rahu the child meets death.
If the rising sign and Chandra be devoid of benefic aspects and between two malefics cause balarishta

One must consider invariably the 8th,3rd,2nd and 7th houses for determining longevity.
The subject is divided into 4 groups. 1. Balarishta 2. Alpayu 3. Madyayu 4. Deerghayu.
Balarishta is of two kinds. Sadyorishta (Death immediately after birth) and Balarishta (Death
within 12 years ).
1. Lagna is the body. Chandra is mind. Ravi is the soul. If these main centres of the body
are afflicted by malefics the new born baby will not survive.
2. Lagna, its lord, Chandra and 8th should be considered. If a malefic in Ascendant afflicted
by 8th lord and Chandra by the Ravi and Sani the child dies immediately.
3. Lagna lord in 6th makes the child weak, and affliction by 8th lord gives more troubles in its
growth.
4. If Chandra or Ravi in Kendras afflicted by malefics, and their dispositors also are
afflicted, the child will not at all survive.
5. The dispositors of Ravi, Chandra and Lagna and the cusps of 3rd and 8th also are to be
checked.
6. The transit of planets over the above said five sensitive points gives clue the time and
date of death.
7. The child dies within hours of birth if Chandra is in other than 3, 6, 10, 11 houses and
lords of 1st and 8th houses and Ravi also is afflicted.

Even Guru may occupy the lagna, but if Chandra be in 8, 12, 6th bhava and aspected by malefic,
Rahu the child meets death.
If the rising sign and Chandra be devoid of benefic aspects and between two malefics cause
balarishta.
When all the planets are weak and occupy 3, 6, 9 or 12, or apoklima houses early death is
noticed.

When Ravi and Chandra are posited in the 3rd house identical with malefic sign and in conjunction with a malefic in a nativity, he will fall ill and die before 3 years.
If Guru is in debilitation and birth is at mid day (Full Dark fortnight), the child dies in a month.
When waning Chandra occupies the rising sign and a malefic planet is in Kendra or in the 8th the child dies.
When Chandra occupies the rising sign, 6,8,12 places from it and is aspected by a malefic planet, without benefic aspect, Kendra kona are not occupied by benefics infant death is predicted.
When Sani occupies the 7th or the lagna itself and when rising sign is a watery one and Chandra occupies the lagna and the benfic planets are in Kendra the child dies early according yavanas.
If the two malefic planets occupy the lagna and the 7th and Chandra be in conjunction with a malefic planet and be not aspected by benefic one, the death of new born baby occurs.
When Chandra in conjunction with a malefic planet occupies the rising sign and is not aspected by benefic planets, these latter being in a position other than Kendra, death may take place.
