CHAPTER 8

मुनिरुवाच

शत्रुक्षेत्रं समक्षेत्रं मित्रक्षेत्रं तथैव च। स्वग्रहं च तथा स्वोच्च बलं चैव यथोत्तरं॥१॥

In the natal chart, placement in an enemy’s house, neutral house, friend’s house, own house and house of exaltation – this is the sequence of increasing strengths.

सर्वोत्तमबलीखेटः स्वायुर्दायं ददाति सः। ग्रहास्त्वेकाधिकारस्थास्तदाद्यादपि को ग्रहः॥२॥

तस्य भुक्तांशकं वेदे निघ्नं वर्षादिकं भवेत्। तथाष्टमाधिपं कार्यं शुक्लकृष्णविभेदतः॥३॥

The planet which is the strongest provides its age to the native. If multiple planets are placed identically then consider the first planet.  Multiply its degrees traversed in the sign by four. That shall be the years (months) etc. A similar computation should be done with the eighth lord depending upon whether the bright fortnight is passing or the dark fortnight.

स्वोच्चे सप्त स्वगेहे च वेदं मित्रगृहे शशी। योज्य(यं) स्वष्टायुषि (स्पष्टायुषि?) विप्र समं समग्रहे तथा॥४॥

साध्यं (शोध्यं?) रिपुगृहे वह्नि परमायुः स्फुटं भवेत्।

O Vipra! When the planet is exalted then add seven, when in its own house then add four, when in a friend’s house then add one, when in a neutral house then equal, when in an enemy’s house then subtract three. The full age shall thus be obtained.

स्वगृहे त्रीणि वर्षाणि योज्यं मध्यांशके गते॥५॥

मुनि(७)नाग(८)दशे(१०)शा(११)ग्नि (३?) योज्यं लग्नादिके स्थिते।

सप्तमे सप्तवर्षाणि नवरुद्रेशसंयुताः॥६॥

तपादिके स्थिते षष्ठे बाणाब्दं हीनिते भवेत्। मृतो (मृतौ?) विश्वाख्य (१३) वर्षाणि हीनिते व्ययगेश्वरं॥७॥

If the planet is in the middle part in its own house then add three years. Add seven, eight, ten, eleven and three years if the planet is placed in the ascendant, second, third, fourth and fifth to the ascendant respectively. If in the seventh to the ascendant then add seven. Add nine, eleven and eleven if placed ninth, tenth and eleventh to the ascendant respectively. If placed sixth to the ascendant then subtract five. If eighth to the ascendant then subtract thirteen and if twelfth to the ascendant then subtract eleven.

शुक्ले चंद्रस्य होरायां सूर्यस्य कृष्णपक्षके। स्वस्वायुषि तु संशोध्यं व्यत्यये सुमतिसुत॥८॥

O son of Sumati! If the planets is in the Moon’s hora in the bright fortnight or in the Sun’s hora in the dark fortnight then the corrections in the ages (additions and subtractions) should be reversed.

स्वपंच(सपंच?)दिवसाब्दाश्च शून्यबाहुनिशाकराः(१२०)। मनुजानां करीणां च रदाश्वानां परायुषः॥९॥

पंचविंशति वर्षाणि महिषीनां प्रकीर्तिताः। गोसिंहानां युगश्व्यब्दा(२४) मेषादीनां रसेंदवः(१६)॥१०॥

शुनां द्वादशवर्षाणि मार्जाराणां कुरात्रिपाः(११)।

काकसर्पासगोधा(गृध्र?)नां खखाभ्राभ्रनिशाकराः(१२००००)॥११॥

वानराणां पिंगलानामृक्षाणां च खखाग्नयः (३००)। ऊभकानामपि तद्धि गदर्भानां युगाश्विनः (२४)॥१२॥

मकराणां च कूर्माणां सार्द्धवर्षशतायुषं (१५०?)। वृश्चिकानां समाश्चाष्टा (८) वर्षमेकं पिपीलिका॥१३॥

मक्षिकामशकानां षण्मासं पंचमासकं। भृंगानां चक्रवाकानां सार्द्धवर्षचतुष्टयं॥१४॥

The full age of humans, elephants and horses is one hundred twenty years and five days. Twenty five years is the full age of bulls, twenty four years of cows and lions, sixteen of sheep etc, twelve of dogs, eleven of cats, one thousand of crows, snakes, (owls/parrots?*1) and vultures, three hundred of monkeys, apes and bears, same for ubhakas (frogs or eagles?*2), twenty four for donkeys, one hundred and fifty for crocodiles and tortoises, eight for scorpions, one for ants, six months for house flies, five months for mosquitoes, four and half years of wasps and Chakravakas.

*1Chandrashekhar’s comment: Godha is a type of iguana.

*2Chandrashekhar’s comment: I think this should be Uluka that is an owl.

चतुरशीतिलक्षाणि जीवभेदाः प्रकीर्तिताः। जरांडस्वेदजादीनामायुर्दायं पृथक्पृथक्॥१५॥

There are eighty four lakhs species of living beings. Lifespan of viviparous, oviparous and sweat-born (has been mentioned) separately.

इति ते कथितं विप्र आयुर्दायं च मे मतं। अन्येषामनुपातेन साधनीयं विचक्षणैः॥१६॥

Thus I have told you, O Vipra!, the lifespan according to my view. For others, wise men should ascertain proportionately.

सर्वोत्तमबलीखेटः पुंसश्चेत्पुरुषो भवेत्। स्त्री चेत्स्त्रीजन्म वक्तव्यं क्लीबे क्लीबं विनिर्दिशेत्॥१७॥

If the strongest of all the planets is male then the native is a male, if it is a female then the native is a female and if it is neutral then the native should be indicated to be of neuter gender.

द्वादशांशे च द्रेष्काणे नवमांशे द्विदेहके। सर्वोत्तमबलीखेटे यमलौ भवतस्तदा॥१८॥

If the strongest planet in the Dwadashamsha, Dreshkana and Navamsha is of neuter gender then twins are born.

तनुभुक्तनवांशघ्नाः शशिभोग्यनवांशकाः। द्वियुक्ता दशभिर्भक्ता जन्म लब्धे प्रचिंतयेत्॥१९॥

Add the degrees traversed by the ascendant in Navamsha and the degrees left to be traversed by the Moon in the Navamsha and divide the result by ten. The birth should be precited to happen at the time indicated by the quotient. (Here the reference seems to be to the Prashna chart.)

बलयुक्तस्य खेटस्य भुक्तांशतुल्यमासकैः। गर्भमोक्षो वदेच्छुक्ले कृष्णे त(त्)द्विगुणे वदेत्॥२०॥

Delivery should be indicated at the month equal to the degrees traversed by the strongest planet in the case of bright fortnight. In the case of dark fortnight double the number of months.

लग्नात्षष्टाष्टरिष्फस्थे खलैर्युक्तेऽथ वीक्षिते। सर्वोत्तमबलीखेटः(खेटे?) सुतेशे वांगस्वामिनि॥२१॥

गतांशतुल्यमासैश्च गर्भप्रपतनं ध्रुवं। तस्य दानोपचारेण सुखेन पुत्रदर्शनं॥२२॥

If the strongest planet or the lord of the fifth house or the lord of the ascendant is placed in the sixth, eighth or twelfth house from the ascendant and is conjunct or aspected by (three or more?) malefics then miscarriage is certain to happen at the month equal to the degrees traversed. If the remedy of donations is carried out then one can see the face of the child without undergoing any troubles.

शीर्षास्यबाहुहृदयोदरकासी(कटि?)भृतस्तनोः। नाभिर्गुह्योरू जानु च तथांघ्रिद्वितयं तथा॥२३॥

Head, face, arms, heart, stomach, hips, navel, private parts, thighs, knees, ankles and the two feet (are the limbs) of the body (signified by the houses beginning with the ascendant.)

सूर्ययुक्ते तिलं वाच्यं व्रणादिन्यापराशिपे। भौमे दग्धं व्रणं सौम्ये पापे शस्त्रज(जं) सूर्यजे॥२४॥

राहोः पाषाणकाष्ठादि केतौ जीवचिह्नकृत्। द्विचतुःसंस्थिते पापे चिह्नरुधिरसंभवं॥२५॥

(If the house is) occupied by Sun then indicate a mole (in the respective body part), if occupied by lord of a watery sign then indicate sores, if occupied by Mars then indicate burns, if occupied by malefic Mercury then indicate sores, if occupied by Saturn then indicate wounds inflicted by weapons, if occupied by Rahu then by stones, wood etc and if occupied by Ketu then marks made by animals. If a malefic occupies the second or fourth house then indicate marks created by blood.

चंद्रपापांशद्रेष्काणे कुब्जः स्यात्सूर्यवीक्षिते। तथा मंदेक्षिते पंगुः सूर्यहोरागते विधौ॥२६॥

If Moon is in the hora of Sun and is in a malefic Navamsha and Dreshkana and is aspected by Sun then the native has a hump-backed. If Moon is aspected by Saturn then the native shall be lame.

शुक्रभौमौ व्यये वित्ते काणः सूर्येन्दुवीक्षिते। अंधः स्यान्नियतं वित्ते व्यये सूर्येंदुसंस्थिते॥२७॥

If Venus and Mars are in the twelfth or second house are aspected by Sun and Moon then the native shall be blind in one eye. He shall be fully blind if Sun and Moon are in the second or twelfth house (that is conjunct with Venus and Mars placed as mentioned before).

वृश्चिके लग्नसंप्राप्ते कर्मे सूर्यकवीस्थिते। मकरे संस्थिते चंद्रे वामनो जायते नरः॥२८॥

लग्नेशे द्वितीयस्थाने सचंद्रे शनिवीक्षिते। तदापि वामनं वाच्यमेवं धर्माधिपेऽपि वा॥२९॥

If Scorpio is the ascendant, Sun and Venus are in the tenth house and Moon is in Capricorn then the native shall be a dwarf. If the lord of the ascendant is in the second house with Moon and is aspected by Saturn then as well the native shall be a dwarf. Similar shall be the result with the lord of the ninth house (in place of the lord of the ascendant).

लग्नलग्नाधिपौ क्रूरौ जायाजायाधिपौ तथा। तस्य जायाशरीरे तु कुचिह्नं भवति ध्रुवं॥३०॥

तथा पाताल (४) स्वर् (१०)भे*शौ तस्य माता कुचिह्निता।

तद्वद् दुश्चिक्यधर्मेशौ भगिनी तस्य पूर्ववत्॥३१॥

If the ascendant and its lord are cruel and so are the seventh house and its lord then there shall certainly be an inauspicious sign in the body of the native’s wife. If the fourth and tenth lords are such then the mother shall have an inauspicious sign. Similarly if the third and ninth lords are such then his sister shall be as mentioned before.

*Chandrashekhar’s comment: The word is perhaps “svargeshau” since svarga is a name of the 10th bhava. Svara means seven and does not fit in the context.

सप्तमाधिपतिः सौम्यः तस्य स्त्री रोषवादिनी। यदा लग्नाधिपः सौम्यः क्रूरस्तूर्याधिपस्तथा॥३२॥

जायाधिपः शुभस्तस्य जननी व्यभिचारिणी। अष्टमाधिपतिः क्रूरस्तस्य स्त्री व्यभिचारिणी॥३३॥

If the lord of the seventh house is mild (non-cruel) then his wife shall speak with anger. When the lord of the ascendant is mild, the lord of the fourth house is cruel and the lord of the seventh house is auspicious then the native’s mother shall be unchaste. If the lord of the eighth house is cruel then his wife shall be unchaste.

इत्थं ग्रहयुता नारीफलं सर्वगुणादिकं। कथयेत्स्त्रीफलं पुंसि शेषं सर्वफलं दिशेत्॥३४॥

शुभाशुभं च यत्किंचिज्जन्मतो वा विचारयेत्। अन्यदाधानतश्चिंतामित्थं चिह्नादिकं वदेत्॥३५॥

In this way the results of women all their characteristics etc should be indicated based on planets. The remaining results connected with the women should be seen in the same manner as in a male’s chart. All auspicious and inauspicious results should be studied from the time of birth. Other results like marks on the body etc., can  be known from the Aadhana (impregnation) chart.

॥इति श्रीलोमशसंहितायां लोमशसुजन्माविप्रसंवादे प्रथमोत्थाने अष्टमोऽध्यायः॥८॥

||Thus ends the eighth chapter in the conversation between Lomasha and Sujanma in the first part of Lomasha Samhita.||
