Death Astrology|Significance of Maraka Planets

Maraka Planets

From the time of our birth and till the end of our life a lot of things change. Our ideas, thinking, behavior, personality usually change with the change in time. It doesn’t matter how much we try to run away from the things, at some point in life we have to face reality and the reality is death. Our life cycle begins to decline after a specific period or the time of the conclusion of our life span. This conclusion is called death where our body gets decomposed and our soul gets absorbed in space.

If we talk about Lifespan, it is generally of three types: short, medium and long. According to Vedic Astrology, a person can live maximum for 120 years which seems quite impossible in the modern world. However, In today’s world, an average lifespan is 60 years and crossing 70 years is like a big achievement. Believe it or not but somehow our lifespan is governed by planets and houses that rule over the body of a person.

Death Astrology

Death Astrology is basically a part of Vedic Astrology that explains about the death of a person. It and also gives us an insight into different planets and houses that governs the death of a person. It not only governs our present life but also plays a very important role in our spiritual life that is Life after Death.

Death Astrology

According to Vedic Astrology, 1st and 8th ascendant houses play a very important role in our birth chart with respect to our lifespan and longevity. The first house rules over health, diseases and the immune system of our body. On the other hand, eight house controls the lifespan of a person. Its also called the house of longevity.

What is Maraka?

According to Hindu Astrology, Maraka refers to the planets that cause the death of a person after a particular lifespan. In fact, the Maraka planet has the power to kill a person especially when his/ her lifespan seems to get completed. However, Maraka is not a specific planet, it can also be a Dasha of different planets that causes problems in our life. It is not necessary that Maraka will only cause death, when it comes at a young age it can also create various health problems and diseases.

Maraka Planets are basically the Lords of 2nd and 8th house called Marrakesh. In a Horoscope of a person, the 8th house is also known as the house of longevity or you can also call it the house of Death. While as third house is the primary house of longevity and is also known as Bhavat Bhavam of the eight houses. It means counting 3rd house from 8th house, the count will be 8th in number.

Moreover, when these houses or their lord’s affiliate they can cause problems in your financial and married life.

Working Of Maraka Planets

There is a rule in Astrology when planet affiliates or gets weak its starts to lose its significance. It can give bad results whether it is exalted or debilitated. The same way when a Maraka planet gets weak it can lead to serious health issues or even can cause the death of an individual. However, you can also call it as a Rule of Affiliation.

When 6th house links up with the Maraka house it can create severe health issues. However, in most of the cases, these health issues can prove chronic in nature. All it depends on the Maraka Dasha which forces a planet to become weak and lose its significance and power. Moreover, when 12th house makes a relationship with the Maraka house it also leads to severe health diseases but these diseases are psychological in nature. However, this house is much related to black magic and evil effects.

Markesh Dasha

Markesh Dasha is basically a period where a person needs to stay very alert in terms of his health and needs to take proper care of himself. Dasha means major Period and Antardasha means sub-period.

Maraka planet should never affiliate with a malefic planet especially during bad dasha and Antardasha. It can bring a very bad impact on the placement of planets.
