I’m asleep. Phone rings. It’s a question of life and death.
7 month baby in womb. Heart has stopped beating. Mother’s blood pressure too high. She’s not able to get the baby out. C-section can’t be performed, because mother is allergic to many anaesthetic drugs. Waiting for uterus to open naturally. High BP is causing critical condition.
Prashna : Will she die?
Am I even qualified to do this (I remember asking myself at the time)? Nevertheless, here goes (I remember telling myself).
Lagna, Lagna Lord, Moon and Sun in fixed signs indicate life for such a Prashna.
The condition of the foetus is indicated by retrograde Jupiter and Rahu in the 5th, with Jupiter being Karaka for children, retrograde, and Rahu in the 5th signifying abortion. The 5th Lord is in the 12th, forming an Ishrafa with Saturn, 12th Lord. The foetus has died.
With Yogakaraka Venus being in the Lagna, and Lagna Lord Saturn aspecting Lagna, the doctor is competent.
This Venus is crucial here. It conjuncts the Sun (Lord 7th) in the Lagna, and is in Purna Ithasala with the Moon in the 7th. Yogakaraka Venus is exercising vital benefic influence on the givers of life, i.e. the Sun and the Moon, who by the way also signify disease here, because of their connection to the 7th, with all this happening in the 1/7 axis.
The Lagna Lord Saturn is in Kendra, and will be overall considered very mildly benefic, since it is Lagna Lord after all, in Kendra, aspecting Lagna. The Kendras are devoid of any retrogression. 8th Lord is not in any Kendra. Kendras look strong.
Lord 4th and Lord 7th are conjunct in the Lagna, signifying that doctor is able to treat the condition.
Mars, Lord 10th, is in its Mulatrikona House in the 3rd, and aspects the 10th from here. Ketu, a malefic, is in the 11th. Overall, the patient has tremendous constitutional strength to resist the condition. The 3rd House is one of extraordinary efforts. Mars will bash against the wall and break it, being in a position of strength. 10th stands for patient. Malefic in Trishadhaya give tremendous ability to push hard.
Lagna Lord Saturn in the 4th forms an Ishrafa with 7th Lord Sun in the Lagna. The doctor has intensified treatment because condition seems to be getting out of doctor’s hand. Lagna Lord is in Paap Kartari Yoga. It forms a weak Ishrafa with 5th and 8th Lord Mercury in the 12th. The doctor has not been able to save the baby. Was it due to some mistake of the doctor initially, regarding dosage of treatment or something? Nevertheless, I still feel that the doctor is competent enough to save her. Lagna Lord aspects the 10th, and is in exchange with Yogakaraka in Lagna. A destined doctor is at the spot, who will save her.
At around 7:45 am, Moon (6th Lord) in 7th will enter Purna Ithasala with Yogakaraka Venus in Lagna, and this will remain the case till about 11:30 am. During this time, doctor and condition will be battling face to face, no holds barred, with both pushing maximum. Bottomline to be noted is that the Moon will only leave Purna Ithasala with Venus after or around the time one event occurs.
At around 11:30 am, the foetus might abort, being shown by Rahu entering Taurus, the 4th House, which is 12th from the 5th.
Thus, before the Moon enters the 8th House, the Yogakaraka (synonymous with the doctor here) will have done his or her work, i.e. saved the patient.
So much for analysis. Now to gather the strength to say it.
I gather the strength. It is 8:32 am.
I say it. Don’t change the doctor. Foetus is likely to abort around 11:30 am. She will be ok after foetus aborts. Do anything to make her hang on till 11:30 am.
News comes in at 1:30 pm. Foetus has aborted at 11:30 am. Mother is out of danger.
