( published in KP and astrology annual issue 2006 )
Rule: If Cuspal sublords of 1-3-8 signifies Badhaka and marakasthanas and also
connected to 6-8-12 the person has a short life span. Here 1 indicates the individual,
8 Ayusthanam and 3 promotes Ayush. Houses 1,5,11 are positive houses
Step 1- Having a look at the karakas of health.
Ravi karaka for health is weekly disposed in 9(badaka) , conjoined sharply with
sukr(3degrees), sukr owns the 6th (house of disease) and also 7th (marakasthana) in
sub of sani in 12 (mokshasthana) . So Ravi indicates poor state of health.
Chan another karaka for health is in 8 in the sub of sukr.
Chan in the star of ketu , which is a badaka being deposited in the star of Ravi.
Hence chan also indicates poor health.
Step 2- Study of the cuspal sublords
6th Cuspal sublord- Sani is also the karaka for longevity is in the 12th cusp .
It is strongly aspected by the lagna and 12th bhava lord Mars–indicating
chronic disease. Mars owns 1 and is posited in 9 ( badhakasthana for sthira rasi )
Also Mars indicates blood and red cells and vrischika by nature is a watery sign
again denoting blood and red cells.
The native was suffering from genetic disorder called Hemophilia – where blood is
incapable of producing the pigment collagen responsible for blood clotting.
Secondly sani in star of Budh-who owns 8 in the sub of Ravi (9).
1st cuspal sublord Guru is deposited in star of ketu(badaka), Guru owns 2 and is
the only significator of 2(maraka) . Guru aspects 9,2 (both negative house) and also
Guru in the sub of Chan in 8 . So Guru represents poor longevity.
3rd cuspal sublord Budh is deposited in the star of mars who owns12 and in 9.
(both negative houses). Budh is in the sub of Rahu in the star of sani in 12th.
8th cuspal sublord Sukr in the star and sub of chandra in 8. Sukr owns 6,7 (both
negative houses ) .
Here the cuspal sublords Guru, sukr and Budh being connected to Maraka and
Badakasthanas I was convinced that the native has only a short life(Alpayush)

Step 4 – Selecting the strong significators.

. Also it is in the sub of chan.
b)Guru as 2nd CSL and sole significator of 2 is another maraka also it aspects
the 9th house. Select Guru

The native expired when the native was running Sukr Mahadasha, Guru Bukti
and the Antara of Budh on Jan 2 2005. It is interesting to note that the cuspal
sublords of 1,3 and 8 also being significators had come together as supremos to
