Planets and Children

Bearing children is the most important thing after marriage for a couple. It has been understood as one of the "samskars" among the Shodasha Samskars. Progeny appears very easy for some people yet very difficult for others. Some find it easy to have multiple children yet others find it difficult to have only one child. Let us try to have an insight in the factors that govern progeny.

Jupiter

Jupiter is the key significator for children in Astrology. A strongly placed Jupiter in the horoscope promotes progeny.  Exalted Jupiter, Jupiter in a friendly sign and Jupiter associated with or aspecting the fifth house or the owner of fifth house yields good progeny.

Fifth house

The fifth house of the horoscope signifies children. An inherently powerful fifth house by way of friendly aspects by soft planets like Moon, Venus and Jupiter are known to deliver good progeny. A strong fifth house way of bindus contributed in Ashtakvarga also contributes to betterment in progeny.

Owner of fifth house

The owner of fifth house should not be debilitated, retrograde or combusted. The owner of the fifth house should have a good placement in the horoscope and aspected by benefics.

Venus

Venus governs the sperm count in the male body and seminal liquid in the female body. Venus should be free from any kind of afflictions like debilitation, retrogration, combustion or negative influence by Rahu/Ketu.

Saptamsha (D7 CHART)

Saptamsha is a divisional chart uniquely dealing with progeny. A thorough analysis of the D7 on the above mentioned factors strengthens/weakens the prospects for progeny.

  • Whenever Jupiter gets associated with fifth house or the owner of fifth house by way of aspect, conjunction or exchange then it promotes progeny.
  • Whenever the owner of the fifth house gets associated with its own house, it strengthens the prospects for progeny.
  • Influence of benefics like Moon, Venus and Mercury on the fifth house and the owner of fifth house are known to promote progeny

Analyzing progeny is a case by case matter. Different horoscopes have varied features governing the prospects for progeny. A thorough analysis of the above factors is very important before reaching a final conclusion.

Stay Blessed!!
