Horoscope – Male or Female ? By YENBEEYES

Horoscope – Male or Female ?
Hare Rama Krishna Written on 22.12.2007
The astrologers must know how to find out whether the given horoscope is of a male
or a female. This is considered to be quite a tough job. Hence the astrologers, when
preparing a birth chart, in order to ascertain, whether the birth chart is of a male or
a female adjust the Navamsa to odd(male) or even(female) even by changing the
time of birth and this trick enables them to know immediately whether the native is
male or female. This technique impresses the people greatly, but the astrologers
themselves know their weaknesses quite well.
Principle I
This is a general principle which is found in the book titled ‘Book of Correct
Astrological Predications’. Some of the rules are not acceptable in the present day
context as much research has been made in the field of Astrology which is
contradictory to the rules in this principle. Here Rahu and Ketu are not considered for
determination of sex as they are only mathematical points. Another deviation you
will find here is that Mercury and Saturn though termed as Eunuch by all ancient
texts, they are treated here as female nature. Finally the rules do not fit properly in
some of the horoscopes and there seems to be some link missing in the Principle.
However it may be, let us apply this principle to some charts and come to a
conclusion thereafter.
1. Sun, Mars and Jupiter indicate male gender and Saturn, Venus and Moon
indicate Female gender. Mercury with Saturn or Venus indicates Female and
with Sun, Mars and Jupiter indicate male gender. It is to be noted that the
planets of male sign i.e. Sun, Mars and Jupiter are more powerful and
victorious than the planets of female sign (except the Moon). It is also to be
noted that the planets which aspects the house or a planet conjoined is more
2. The Moon is loved and honoured by every planet. Hence other planets allow
her to act according to her desire. If there is combination of 7th house or the
lord of the 7th house with Moon the native is female even if there are other
combinations of male sex. In the same way the signs ruled by the planets
Horoscope – Male or Female ?
Sun, Mars and Jupiter i,e. 5, 1, 8, 9 and 12 of the Natural Zodiac are
considered to be male signs and 4, 2, 7, 10 and 11 as female signs. Gemini
sign is to be understood as male while Virgo is female.
So Male signs are – Leo, Aries, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Pisces and Gemini
Female signs are – Cancer, Taurus, Libra, Capricorn, Aquarius and Virgo.
Combinations for male:
1. 7th house + Sun, Mars or Jupiter or his signs
2. 7th lord + Sun, Mars or Jupiter or his signs
Combinations for female:
1. 7th house + Moon, Venus, Mercury or Saturn or her or his sign.
2. 7th Lord + Moon, Mercury, Venus or Saturn or her or his sign.
List of abbreviations used in the charts: As – Lagna or Ascendant; Su – Sun; Mo – Moon; Ma –
Mars; Me – Mercury; Ju- Jupiter; Ve – Venus; Sa – Saturn; Ra – Rahu; Ke – Ketu.
Chart 01: Sri Satya Sai Baba (Puttabarthi)

1. 7th house is Taurus with no planets in it. Hence
cannot be taken for consideration.
2. 7th Lord Venus is in Scorpio along with a male
planet Sun. Mercury and Saturn thus conjoin one
male planet Sun and one female planet Venus. In
such a situation the house will decide the nature of
the sex. Scorpio is a Male sign.
Hence the horoscope is of male.
Chart 02 Mahatma Gandhi

1. 7th house is Aries with Jupiter in it. Hence
Male horoscope.
2. 7th Lord Mars is conjoined with a female
planet Venus. Mercury who also conjoins
Mars is thus with one male planet Mars and
one female planet Venus. Mars is also
aspected by a male planet Jupiter. Since
male planets predominate Mercury will
have no say.

male planets are more powerful, Moon

Hence the test fails as far as this horoscope is

1. 7th house is Pisces with no planets in it.

2. 7th lord Jupiter is debilitated and in Capricorn.
Unfortunately the rule does not say anything
regarding debilitated and exalted planets.
Hence if we take the sign Capricorn it denotes
a female.
Horoscope – Male or Female ?
From the forgoing you will observe that the system though prove to be correct in
some cases, It looks as though we are trying to justify the principle one way or other.
There are many loose ends. There is no clear cut result in some of the cases. But the
real value of astrology lies in the application of a principle and predicts an event that
is to happen in future. Hence in view of the limitations of the principle we cannot rely
on the above system fully.
Principle II
Jaimini Sutras
Chapter IV Quarter 3 – sex of child
There are 3 Sutras – 4.3.10 to 4.3.12 where in it is stated that “Male child is born if
the planet is male, otherwise female child is born and if the planet is Eunuch an
eunuch is born.” These sutras have reference to sutras 4.3.3 to 4.3.9 wherein the
method of arriving at the planet is given. Noted astrologer Mr. R.Santhanam in his
research paper published in his book ‘Essentials of Hindu Predictive Astrology’ has
given a real life case and has thoroughly analyzed the Sutra. I am not going into the
details of the Sutra here as the same can be read from various translations available.
Maharishi has stated that the Sutras are applicable to Adhana or conception chart.
We all know very well how difficult it is to construct an Adhana Chart. Here I am
going to examine the same principles as stated in the above Sutras with respect to a
Natal Chart and see whether we are able to fix up the sex of the native.
Principles as stated by Jaimini:
1. The time of birth be reckoned from sunrise to sunset depending on the birth
being at day time/night time. i.e. If the birth is in the day time before Sun set
calculate the day duration from Sun rise to Birth time. If it is during night
time the duration is to be calculated from Sun set to Birth time.
2. The duration so calculated as above must be converted into vighatis. For this
you must know the relation between hours, minutes and ghatis and vighatis.
1 day = 60 ghatis
1 ghati = 60 vighatis and so the table goes on to liptas, viliptas, paras
and tatparas.
The duration as obtained as per rule 1 will be in Hours-Minutes-
Seconds. Convert it into decimals. Formula is – Hours + Minutes/60 +
Horoscope – Male or Female ?
This gives the duration as so many hours.
1 day consist of 24 hours or 60 ghatis and hence one hour = 60/24 =
2.5 ghatis. So multiplying the converted decimal hours by 2.5 we get
ghatis and multiplying this result by 60 we get vighatis.
This is called Janma vighati.
3. Divide the final figure obtained as per rule 2 above by 9. Leave the integer
portion and take only the remainder.
4. If the remainder is not a whole number then it must be rounded to the next
whole number. If the remainder comes to 2.4 or 2.6 then it must be taken as
3. If the remainder is 0 then it must be taken as 9.
5. As per Sutra 4.3.9 to 4.3.12, the numbers so obtained above will indicate the
sex, complexion etc of the child. Counting the planets on the basis of week
days (7) and then adding Rahu and Ketu we get the number nine. The order
is as below:
Number Planet Sex
1 Sun Male
2 Moon Female
3 Mars Male
4 Mercury Eunuch
5 Jupiter Male
6 Venus Female
7 Saturn Eunuch
8 Rahu Male
9 Ketu Female
6. With regard to Mercury and Saturn the saint says Eunuchs. Normally Mercury
rules the female Eunuchs and Saturn male Eunuchs. However this should be
predicted only if specific combinations for such a birth exist in the conception
chart. Otherwise Mercury will indicate a female child and Saturn indicate a
7. Further qualifications in determining the sex of the child are – Exalted planets
indicate male child and debilitated planets indicate female child. Some people
consider Rahu to be female but Parasara is very clear that Rahu, Jupiter and
Sun give illustrious son.
8. When it comes to Eunuch planets Mercury and Saturn, if they are in exaltation
they indicate male sex and in debility denotes female child.
Horoscope – Male or Female ?
9. Here some amount of confusion may arise. What happens if a female planet is
exalted or a male planet is debilitated. Then the conjunction or aspect of
planets of similar nature will be the deciding factor.
10. Also the signs indicating male sex are the odd signs excepting Gemini and
Aquarius, while the even signs are female except Cancer and Pisces.
Male Indicators: Aries, Cancer, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Pisces
Female Indicators: Taurus, Gemini, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and
Consider the signs only when you have conflicting results from the rules above
especially when more than one planet is conjoined or aspected.
One important point to note here is that the Sun rise mentioned here is the time
when the tip of the disk appears in the horizon.
As said in the beginning itself the above principles have been clearly stated as
applicable to Adhana or Conception chart. Now let us try to apply this principle to
a Natal Chart and see the result. Here I will take examples of some well known
person’s chart (4 of male and 4 of female)
The Sun Rise and Sun Set are taken from Jagannath Hora software – selecting
the preferences for sunrise and sunset as ‘Tip of the sun’s disk appears to be on
the eastern horizon’.

From the table in Rule 5 Sun
Sex will have to be Male
Sun is debilitated. There is no conjunction of planets. Hence indicative of female.
Hence we can conclude that the ruling planet of the birth vighati will determine
the sex of the child. But vighati is a time interval of only 24 seconds, it is highly
doubtful that the collected birth time information was accurate in all cases. In
addition to this, the noting of the birth time is always a subject of controversy.
But if we could take a case with accurate data, I am sure they will confirm
Maharishi Jaimini’s principles.
Before I conclude I would like to mention one important point here that the
Sutras of Jaimini referred to above give the basis of the ruling planet of each half
of Nadi Amsa according to Sri Sanjay Rath. Shri Rayudu, another noted
Astrologer has stated in his article ‘Astrology and Human Life’ published in "The
Times of Astrology" magazine, July 1999 states:
Horoscope – Male or Female ?
Each sign or rasi is divided into 300 parts so that each part comes under the
name of a Nadi Amsa measuring 12 minutes of are in the sign or 48 seconds in
time. This minute division sets the seed of destiny of an individual. If the
correct Nadi is established then there is a birds eye view of entire past including
the past life and future of the person concerned Each Nadi Amsa is further
divided into two parts each of 6 minutes of arc in the sign or 24 seconds in time
and general pattern of life is given.
These 24 seconds in time or 6minutes of arc is what is known as Artha
Nadiamasa about which Sri Sanjay Rath has also published a paper giving lucid
and clear explanations.
I also would like to share some of my findings in the application of this specific
Sutra of the Maharishi.
I calculated the Vighati planet as explained above for exactly 100 horoscopes. I
summarize below my findings:
1. In 57 cases sex as obtained by the calculations above tallied perfectly. In
all the 57 cases I did not take into consideration the conjunction or aspect.
I only verified for exaltation and debilitation which revealed that some
male horoscopes had exalted planets (Male) and some female ones had
debilitated planets (female).
2. In 11 cases the test totally failed. None of the rules explained above
provided a correct result. This might be due to error in birth time. Because
when I changed the birth time by a few seconds which ranged between 3
seconds to 16 seconds, it was found to tally.
3. In 32 cases I got the contrary result that is native was a male and the
result was female and vice versa. In these cases I then went to study the
conjunction/aspect and also the nature of sign. In 2 cases I noticed that
when a female planet is exalted it was a male native and in 1 case where
male planet was debilitated it was a female.
For all aspects I considered only the Rasi Drishti as given by Maharishi. No graha
drishti was taken into consideration. This topic is for further research and
discussion as the Retrograde position of planets, argala have not been taken into
account. Also it is to be studied whether the position of the planet in Varga Charts
Horoscope – Male or Female ?
especially Navamsa has any bearing on the determination of the sex of the
Om Tat Sat.
