Newborns with a loaded 11th or 12th house

I am penning this one quick post after one incident with someone I know. Not giving out the details, but their genuine fear made me realise that ‘professional-astrologers’ do sometimes scare innocent people for creating dependency. If you have a newborn in your family, even you can observe what I have written in this post for yourself. Check the birth horoscope of the baby. Note which planets are placed in the 11th or 12th houses. Now the planets placed in the 11th house will, with time, move into the 12th house as per their transit speeds. And naturally the 12th house planets will move into the 1st house as per their natural speeds.

Let’s see what happens, first for the planets in the 11th house who will move into the 12th house and what effects will be seen on the baby. This is on the tiniest levels because from a baby’s view point everything around him is really very big, time passes very slowly for him. The perspective of the baby is very different.We might think that so much is happening so fast in the tiny baby’s life, but for a baby time passes very slowly. One day is like a life time for him.  (post here).

If there is a Moon here, the baby will fall slightly ill on the 2-5th day of its birth. Naturally the Moon will transit to the 12th house in 2.5days so the baby might suffer a sudden weight loss because of loss of water, or refuse to feed properly, or there might be shivering or spasms because of electrolyte imbalance. The mother will feel more weak during these few days and the baby might get a bit neglected, there would be some confusion about how to care for it.

Next, if the Sun in the 11th house, he will shift to the 12th house of the baby, in transit, within one month and stay there for 1 month. In this one month, when the Sun transits his 12th house, the baby may suffer from heat related issues, boils etc and he might lose weight too. Indigestion and vomiting or unusual motions are possible. Feeding him properly is necessary during this time. Also internal heat will be a bit variable, so skin rashes, pitta etc can be possible.

If Mercury is in the 11th house at birth. He will shift to the 12th house within the next about 25days and stay there for another approx 25days. So during this time, Mercury will ensure that there is some misdiagnosis of some sort. Eg the parents/doctors might think that something is happening, but  in reality something altogether different would be happening to him. eg you might think he has colic but maybe he as an ear infection. If you are giving him some vaccines or medicines during this period then its possible that they may give some adverse reaction. Or the dose may not be correct or something.

Venus in the 11th and then moving onto the 12th. He stays in one sign for about 28days. But I have not observed any typical issue here, possibly because Venus in exalted in the natural 12th house of the chart?

Mars in the 11th house can shift into the 12th within 2 months of birth. Baby can get non-cooperative, cry, can over-heat internally, so boils etc can pop up. Fevers and other heat related ailments are possible, somewhat similar to the Sun above.

Then if Jupiter is in the 11th house at birth and next transits to the 12th. Jupiter is the jeev-karak, the agent of life. A strong Jupiter gives a healthy body. He generally stays in a sign for about a year, but does his forward/retrograde/forward dance in between, so he might do this in the 11th-12th houses of the baby’s chart. When he goes into the 12th house a few months after birth he gives some health problems. The usual illnesses of babies may happen during this period from cold, fever to whatever they get in their first year of life. The health will go down slightly in some way.

Saturn in the 11th house and going to the 12th house can happen upto 2.5yrs of life. If the child is older then he will get cranky and you might scold/ discipline him. But if this happens when he is a baby, then he might just cry for no apparent reason. But the problem will be in the astral dimensions as he will be facing some karma from the other worlds. In this case the evil eye tips (post here) should be used to help him.

If Rahu and Ketu occupy the 1st house, they will have their typical effect on the personality. They will shift into the 12th house within the next 1.5yrs as they move retrograde. Again Rahu/ Ketu in the 12th house means astral connect. So use the evil eye prevention tips while Rahu/ Ketu are in the 1st and 12th houses.

Naming your baby, the astrologic twists and turns..

Then if any graha is in the 12th house, he will next transit to the 1st house as per its movement. This almost always causes some trouble. During such transits especially of the slower planets adequate care should be taken. Whenever a planet connected to the 12th house, either the owner of the 12th or placed in the 12th, occupies the 1st house in transit, he causes some reduction in the physical body and the environment around. This is more important if the baby has planets in the 12th house at birth as they will immediately transit the 1st house and if the baby/child is very small, naturally he will not be able to communicate regarding his problems.

This was a generic post, as the actual results will depend on the individual baby’s chart. If the planet is moving into his own sign or sign of exaltation or a friend’s sign the results may not be so perceptible, only minor things can occur. But if there are additional malefic influences then they will be quite evident.

So there is no need to get scared if your otherwise normal and happy, newborn baby, suddenly gets all worked up. Use your common sense and consult a sensible doctor first.

We Jyotishi-s are primarily Observers, the more dispassionate we are, the better we get. If you see something happening or a certain situation unfolding, you have to be able to pick up the keywords of the situation. Train your mind to see patterns in everything around you. Prakruti follows the laws of nature, ie Jyotish. Everything in this created world, emotions, logic, people, interactions, every single thing can be reduced to Jyotish. (But you cannot analyse the Soul with Jyotish, as the Soul is not a part of this created universes.)
