Balarista

17 Mar

BALARISTA 

The classics while discussing Longevity have classified the life span as follows:

  1. Alpayu (0 to 33 years)
  • Balarista (0 to 12 years)
  • Madharista (12 to 20 years)
  • Yogarista (12 to 33 years)
  1. Madyayu (33 to 65 years)
  2. Poornayu (65 to 100 years)
  3. Amitayu (> 100 years) 

Balarista is a Sanskrit word comprising of “Bal” and “Arista”.  “Bal” refers to infancy and childhood, while the “Arishta” means evil or inauspicious.  In Vedic astrology, it implies specific planetary placement, which may cause death during infancy and/or childhood. The disposition of the Moon in horoscope is the primary factor in deciding the presence of “Balarista” or the vulnerability of the child to suffer seAvere health issues including death. The placement of the Moon in sixth, eighth or twelfth house and also having influence of malefic planets (Sun, Mars, Saturn, and Nodes) generates Balarista. 

Moon controls infancy. Therefore we have to check the strength of Moon at birth. The guideline for this as follows:

  • Moon is weakest on Amavasya.
  • Moon is strongest on Poornima.
  • Weak Moon (WM) is defined as between Krishna Paksha 6th Lunar day to Shukla Paksha 10th Lunar day
  • Strong Moon (SM) is defined as between Shukla Paksha 11th Lunar day to Krishna Paksha 5th Lunar day.

  2. WM in Lagna, Malefics in Kendras – less resistant to diseases.
  3. WM + Malefics in Kendras.

  2. Benifics in Dusthanas + Retro Malefic influence on Dusthanas.

  4. Lagna in Rashi Gandantha + Malefic influence on Lagna
  5. Moon in Mrithyu Bhava + Malefic influence on Dusthana – danger for both mother and child.
