Though the 5th house maybe strong and all indications for birth or children maybe present, there will be no issues if there is no strength or vitality for Beeja and Kshetra. Beeja is the seed of the male and Kshetra is the bed of the woman. In other words Beeja and Kshetra represent, not exactly the sperm and the ovum, but the element that really makes the male and female fluids fertile.------------ if the Beeja and Kshetra in their horoscopes are not strong, when judged according to astrological rules, they will not bring forth any issues.
When the Beeja (male) is weak and Kshetra (female) is strong, then children may be born late in the life after undertaking the necessary remedial measures. The strength to cause pregnancy is controlled by the Sun – lord of vitality – in general. Venus governs the seminal fluid. These two must have favorable positions in the horoscope particularly in odd signs. Similarly, in the case of a female, Mars governs the nature of blood and the Moon
controls the strength to bear children. These two planets should preferably occupy even signs. In case of a male, add together the longitude of Sun, Venus and Jupiter. Expunge
multiples of 360 degrees. The sign arrived at indicates what is called “Beeja Sphuta” or longitude of seed. Similarly in a female horoscope add together the longitude of Mars, Moon and Jupiter. Expunge multiples of 360 degrees. The sign arrived at represents the
longitude of the bed or “Kshetra Sphuta”
For males, flow of seminal fluid is controlled by Venus and power to help in causing pregnancy is governed by the Sun who is the lord of vitality. These two planets must have good placements preferably in odd signs with benefic associations and aspects for males—for females, it will be worthwhile to mention that Moon gives strength to conceive and bear the children and also regulates and controls the flow and cycle of menstruation; whereas Mars, in case of females, plays very important role and is responsible for quality and superiority of blood. As such for females, the Moon and Mars should preferably find good placement in their horoscopes in even signs with benefic associations and aspects. Jupiter who is a natural significator for issues for both males and females should find good placement in horoscopes. Considering the above facts, Beeja Sphuta for males is worked out from the longitudes of Sun, Venus and Jupiter; and, in case of females, Kshetra Sphuta is worked out from the longitudes of Moon, Mars and Jupiter.
Following table will be useful and enable the readers to work out Beeja Sphuta and Kshetra Sphuta for forecasting the results regarding issues:
|In case of||Add Longitude of natal planets||Resulting Sign/Navamsa||Results|
|males||Jupiter, Sun & Venus||both odd||virility assured|
|Expunging 12 signs||odd/ even||mixed results|
|both even||virility nil|
|Jupiter, Moon & Mars||both even||fecundity assured|
|Expunge 12 signs||even & odd||children after|
|odd/ even||great efforts|
|both odd||fecundity nil|
