lord of 22nd Decanate.
planet in association with the 8th lord.
bitter enemy of the 8th lord.

The 8th house is the house of the life and if afflicted terminates life. If the 8th lord is in the 6th,

8th or the 12th house, death of the person can occur,


1. in the dasa and bhukti of the 8th lord or
2. in the dasa of the lord of the sign occupied by Saturn in the sub-period of the 8th lord, or
3. in the dasa of the 8th lord and the bhukti of the 9th lord
Transits:
1.WhenSaturn Passes through the house occupied by the 8th or the 12th lord from the lagna, Death
occurs. Passage of Saturn through these houses or their trines reckoned from any other house result
in destruction of that house.
2.Saturns transit of the sign or the trine occupied by the lord of the 22nd Decanate or Mandi brings
about death.

3.WhenSaturn passes through the rasi and Navamsa or their trine obtained from subtracting the
longitude of Saturn from that of Mandi, Death is likely
4.Saturns transit through the sign or the trine obtained from the sum of longitudes of 6th, 8th and
12th
lords brings death.
5.Saturns transit of the sign as far removed from Mandi as Mandi is from the 8th lord is also a fateful
transit.
6.Add the longitudes of the five upagrahas headed by Dhuma, and note the Decanate of the resulting
sign. WhenSaturn arrives this Decanate of the sign, the death is indicated.
7.Add the longitudes of Mandi and Saturn. Multiply the sum by 9. Note the resulting sign and
Navamsa. WhenSaturn arrives this sign and Amsa, the event may take place.
8.Find the weakest of the three sets of planets, viz.(1) Lords of the 8th houses counted from the Asdt.
and the Moon (2) Lord of the 22nd Decanate (3) The Moon and Mandi. Note the Navamsa occupied
by that planet. WhenSaturn arrives at this Amsa or its trine, death is likely.
9.Note the sign which happens to be the Navamsa occupied by the lord of the Asdt. See how far it is
removed from Aries; count so many signs from the 8th lord. WhenSaturn comes to this sign, death is
likely.
10. For the Night birth death is likely during the transit of Saturn through a trine of the sign occupied
by
Mandi at birth; and for day birth it is 7th house from above.
11. Again for the Night birth the event may occur when Saturn passes through the sign and Amsa occupied
by the Moon or Mandi; and for Day birth, when she passes through the sign and Amsa occupied by the
Sun or the 5th, 7th or 9th from that.
12. Count the distance of Mandi from that of 8th lord in signs and count as many signs from Mandi.
When Saturn arrives at that sign, death occur.
13.Jupiters transit through the sign occupied by the 8th lord or its trine.
14.Jupiters transit through the sign or the trine obtained from the sum of longitudes of Lagna, the
Sun
and Mandi causes death.
15.WhenJupi ter crosses the rasi indicated by the sum of the longitudes of Jupiter and Rahu or through
its trines, death can be expected.
16.When theSun comes to the sign and the Amsa obtained from the longitudes of Mandi and the Asdt,
death may happen.
17.WhenSun transits the Dwadasamsa he occupies in Rasi or the Navamsa occupied by the 8th lord or
the Navamsa occupied by Lagna lord or the Trines of any one of these signs, death may be
apprehended.

18.Passage ofSun through the 6th, the7th or the12th house from Venus indicates death.
19.The solar month of death would be identical with the sign occupied by the 8th lord.
20.When theMoon crosses the Rasi or Navamsa by the 8th lord or the Sun or their trines, death is
likely.
21.Moons passage through the sign indicated by the sum of Mandi and Moon.
22.Moons passage through the sign occupied by the lord of 22nd Decanate reckoned from the Moon
or
through the trines of these houses.

23.Transit of the Moon through the Lagna, the 8th or the 12th house also causes death.
24.Find out the Navamsa, Dwadasamsa and the Decanate occupied by Mandi. The transit ofJupiter
through the sign indicated by the Navamsa; ofSaturn through that of Dwadasamsa and theSun
through the one or its trine indicated by the Decanate indicates death. The Lagna denoted by the Sum
of the Lagna, the Moon and the Mandi indicates the time of Death.
25.The Asdt. at the time of death will be the sign obtained from the sum of the longitudes of the Asdt.,
Mandi and the Moon
Place of Death:
1. If the 8th house is a movable sign, death occur in a foreign place or country i.e., far from the home; if it
is fixed sign, death takes place in home; if it is a common sign then death takes place nearby home or
way to home.
2. Place of death is indicated by lord of the sign occupied by the lord rising Navamsa as follows:

The Sun - Temple, Forest or a Religious institution.

The Moon - A fertile place with green vegetation and garden.

Mars - Hospital, Operation room, Special wards.

Mercury - Playground, Sports club, Gambling den.

Jupiter - Theatre house, Public office, Court, Lawyers house.

Venus - Rich flats and apartments, Nursing homes.

Saturn - Dirty places and Dens of Prostitutes.


Planets occupying the Lagna, or the rising Navamsa or the Lagna lord or the planets aspecting the
Lagna
or the Lagna lord have their say on the place of death
