Child Birth in Astrology
It is believed that having a child is a blessing, yes, it is truly a blessing. Does that mean all the childless couples are cursed? No, it is the perspective of the people. I, at this time, like to encourage all those couples, who are childless for many years, that you are chosen by God, to treat all the children you see as your own. God has a great plan for you and he wants you to be selfless and do something for the world in general. So, don’t shut yourself in the shell of guilt and shame. Come out and start supporting those unprivileged children and then you see how your life will be filled with happiness. I am not asking you to adopt, basically, I don’t encourage the idea of adoption, but you can definitely be a support to many children.
In this article, we will see the astrological configurations to have the child. As you know the astrological chart has 12 divisions and the 5th house is the primary house to find the blessing to have a child. Then secondary houses to find the possibility of childbirth are 2nd and 11th. The 2nd house is the house of family and the 11th house is the house which is directly opposite to the 5th house, which is the house of kids. The 11th house also shows kids.
In astrology, there is a significator for anything and everything. The planet which indicates children is Jupiter. It is amazing to know that Jupiter is also the planet of happiness and finances. Children add happiness and they are also our asset. In ancient days, the man with more children was considered as highly blessed. That’s why certain religions prohibit contraception.
How to calculate the possibility to have a child
When I get a chart, I firstly look at Jupiter. If this planet is safely placed, then most of the headache is over. Then I will check the 5th house and the planet which rules the 5th house and Placement, Aspect and Conjunctions regarding the 5th house and the ruler of the 5th house.
It is very easy to know whether the couple has to wait for a few years to get the child or not. Negative planets in 2nd, 5th, and 11th will not always indicate the lack of kids. I have a few charts, which give a terrible outlook, and almost deny the children, but they ultimately had children. Among that one couple has two kids, one is through IVF and for the second kid they used a frozen embryo, and the child was born through IVF. To be frank guys, both the couple had very much damaged 5th house and one of my fellow astrologers told me that the man will never ever have a kid. But I still have the confidence, that, if one amongst the couple’s chart signifies the child, then even though the spouse’s chart denies it, they will surely have the kid. In this couple’s case, the count was terribly less and the husband was very discouraged. He never wanted to go for IVF; instead, he wanted everything to happen normally. It took the entire 2 hours of counseling to convince him for IVF. Now the couple has two sweet boys.
The timing of children
In Vedic astrology, every event happens according to the dasa of the planets connected to the respective houses. According to my studies, childbirth can happen during the Mahadasa, and Antar dasa of the 2nd, 4th, 5th, and the 11th lord. Why 2nd and 4th? They indicate family and during the dasa of these house lords, there can be an addition in the family. It can be through marriage or childbirth as well. By looking at the dasa of these houses, we can even predict marriage as well, because it indicates additions in the family.
There is a misconception that Rahu, Ketu, Mars, Saturn, malefic, debilitated, and retrograde planets in these houses or PLACEMENT, ASPECT and CONJUNCTION, of negative planets cause lack of children. No, No, No. Negative planets in these houses also indicate C-Section, medication, pregnancy troubles and even long term vomiting. Basically hard pregnancy time like long term morning sickness too.
Lack of children, I have seen, through other aspects, which I won’t share here as it will affect you negatively. Guys, the above-said couple’s chart, was so complex, and they were really prayerful.
Personally, I truly don’t suggest any medical treatment for children. But it’s up to you, what my mindset is if God is not giving you something, then don’t grab it through odd ways. But it’s your decision; you can do it according to your free will.
So, don’t be sad by seeing any negative connection to the 2, 5, and 11 houses. It needs detailed research to know whether you are not going to have a child.
