Marakas - The Death Inflicting Planet

Aug 17, 2007
"To die will be an awfully big adventure" - Peter Pan
Death, as we all believe, is the birth or start of a new life. It is the something which is feared, accepted, embraced and celebrated all across the world.

Marakas are planets which are possessed with the power of inflicting death on a native. Death generally occurs during the periods and sub periods of these planets.

Suppose, say the horoscope of an individual indicates middle life or Madhyayu; whereas the Dasa of the most powerful maraca comes in operation after 80 years. In such a circumstance, the period of a planet, no matter even if it is less malicious in causing death which comes within the maxim number of years allotted for Madhyayu, must be considered as bringing about death, in preference to the most malicious one.

It must always be ascertained beforehand, whether a horoscope indicates short, middle or long life. The Maraka planets need to be determined and the time when their influences will come into fruition also needs to be determined.

The 8th house from the lagna i.e. the ascendant and the 8th house from that, i.e. the 3rd from the lagna are termed as Houses of life. The 7th house and the 2nd house are known as the Houses of death.

The 2nd house is always stronger in inflicting death than the 7th house. Planets who occupy the 2nd are stronger than the planets who own it, in tending to cause death and the planets that are in association with the lord of the 2nd are the most powerful in causing death.

Saturn, inclined to produce evil by his conjunction with the lords of the death houses, will cause death in preference to those planets. There are many rules to ascertain the probable time of death knowing beforehand Maraka Dasas.

Summarizing the above, death will be caused by:
a.Planets who occupy the 2nd and the 7th house.
b.Planets who are lords of the 2nd and the 7th house.
c.Planets who are not the owners of the 2nd and the 7th house and who are not occupying these houses but join the lords of those houses.
d.Lords of the 3rd and the 8th house are also probable causers of death.
e.If the Dasa of a death inflicting planet does not at all come into operation, then the most malicious planet in the horoscope will cause death.

There are many rules to ascertain the probable time of death knowing beforehand the Maraka Dasas. Vedic astrology deals with these things. But one thing must be remembered - no astrology can tell you your irreversible future.
