The American Institute of Vedic Studies is an online educational center providing a broad range of courses, resources and publications for an international audience. It focuses on Vedic knowledge systems of Ayurveda, Yoga-Vedanta and Vedic astrology, along with the background system of Hinduism or ‘Sanatana Dharma’.
- Vedic (Jyotish) and Traditional astrology are predictive and based on the concept of fate. The date of death is often a source of inquiry and analysis in these disciplines. Getting a death prediction is so popular that FindYourFate.com has a 'Death Meter' that determines your time of death based on birth date, gender, health habits, and family history. However, if you get a death prediction from this tool.
- Timing of death is a very tricky business. Even after an Astrologer has timed the death of a person, he is forbidden to disclose it to the person concerned. At the most he can give a very subtle hint, but at the same time he should prescribe some remedial measures for.
- A year is thus defined as a Samvatsara, or the time taken for the Sun to transit 360 zodiacal degrees. The Sun’s movement at 1 degree per day is equivalent to 1 year of time, based on the above principle from Manu Smriti. This principle is the basis of all progression and dashas systems in Vedic astrology.
(LAST TIME: I discussed the controversial and potentially dangerous subject of using astrology to predict death. If you have a problem with the subject, go back there and leave your comments. However, if you’re brave enough to want to see how the astrological sausage is made, read on. And if not… drop by next time when the subject matter is likely to be a lot lighter in both tone and technique. )
Could a competent, experienced astrologer have predicted the sudden accidental death of actress Natasha Richardson?
The short answer: Quite possibly, yes.
Of course, there is another (at least as important) question this raises: could an astrologer have actually saved Natasha Richardson’s life?
The other short answer: Maybe not.
Natasha Richardson, wife of Liam Neeson and daughter of Vanessa Redgrave, was born May 11, 1963 at 5 PM in London, England. She died after a skiing accident at Mt. Tremblant, Quebec on March 16th 2009.
At the time of the accident, transiting Mars at 2 degrees Pisces was opposite her natal Uranus, secondary progressed Uranus, and secondary progressed Midheaven, all clustered at 1-2 degrees Virgo. Any transit from Mars to natal Uranus (but especially the difficult squares and oppositions) are naturally a time when accidents are much more likely to happen. Furthermore, Mars was passing through her Fifth House… recreational activities.
(WARNING: The next paragraph contains language some people will find confusing. Specifically, the language of Vedic Astrology.)
Certain features in the Vedic chart also stand out as a warning. At the time of the accident she was in a period known as “Rahu-Mars”… her major Rahu (North Node) period, Mars sub-period. This is a time that is relatively hard to predict for, and where even ordinary things can go wrong. But among other things, it is a time to beware Mars issues… which includes sporting accidents. Further: Venus is one of the two maraka (“death-dealer”) planets in her birth chart, and her natal Venus is closely square the Nodal axis. So given the rulerships in her chart, a really good astrologer who was taking a good detailed look at her transits could have warned her specifically about the risk of a potentially fatal injury occurring during a recreational activity, and (with just what I’ve laid out here) he or she could have spotted the Danger Time within a few days.
So if Natasha Richardson had sat down with an astrologer before the accident, the astrologer could have very easily said something about “be really careful with that skiing lesson you have scheduled for next week.” The astrologer might have even been concerned enough to tell her to take a pass on any new athletic activities.
But of course, no one runs every last detail of their by what their astrologer says… or hardly any do, anyway. And they shouldn’t. Even the best astrologer can make mistakes.
Pisces man horoscope today. So: suppose Natasha had spoken with an astrologer a week before the accident. The astrologer finds all the warning signs I’ve delineated above, and explains them to Natasha in detail.
Most people are going to do what they are going to do anyway, despite what any astrologer tells them. Ask any astrologer yourself how many of his/her clients come to get readings about bad relationships and whether or not they should leave… and when the client leaves the astrologer, he or she goes right back to the bad relationship.
In all likelihood, Natasha would have listened to the warning and still gone skiing, except maybe she would have been extra cautious to stick to the beginner’s hill and gone out with a qualified instructor. Which is, it turns out, exactly what she did anyway.
Full details were never released, but if they had been I believe we would find that Natasha Richardson had an underlying, pre-existing circulatory issue: perhaps a weakened blood vessel in her brain that had been there for years like a time bomb, just waiting for the right nudge at the right time to go off. Just like everything else in a birth chart, come to think of it…
Home » Services » Life Longevity Astrology Report
Most of us try to avoid the only and ultimate truth - Death. But still questions like How will I die and when? What is my life span? How long will i live? Can astrology predict death? All these come to our mind from time to time. However, thoughts regarding time, cause and circumstances of death is one thing and really knowing all these is a completely different thing. It will not matter much if one 'knows' that he is going to die in certain way and at a certain time after say 20 years, but as the fateful time nears, things can change completely. His psychological, emotional and mental balance can be destroyed and it is a kind of death before the actual death arrives. We really do not want this to happen to anyone.

Vedic Astrologers starts their work on horoscope analysis and future prediction by checking the life span or longevity of the person first, because what is the use of predicting events related to career, marriage, wealth, relationship and fame if there is no longevity beyond few years. All the results will only fructify if the native is blessed with longevity. If his or her lifespan is not much then there is no use making prediction for years ahead.
In Vedic astrology the subject of longevity has been exhaustively dealt in a very detailed manner. To start with, the life of a person is broadly classified Balarishta Yoga, Madhyarishta Yoga, Yogaristha Madhyayu Yoga, Deerghayu Yoga and Purnayu Yoga or Amithayu. For finding out this there are various combinations or yogas for each category of life length which have been mentioned in ancient Vedic Astrology texts and have stood the test of time.
Balarishta Yoga or the astrological combinations for child mortality or infantile death - This indicates that the child is vulnerable to an early death before 8 years.
Madhyarishta Yoga or the astrological combinations for teenage age death - This indicates that the death will occur before 19 years.
Yogaristha (Yogaja Ayu) Yoga also know as Alpayu Yoga or the astrological combinations for death in prime age - This indicates that the death will occur before 32 years of age.
Madhyayu Yoga or the astrological combinations for death during mid life - This indicates that the death will occur before 64 years.
Deerghayu Yoga or the astrological combinations for death during old age - This indicates that the death will occur before 84 years.
Purnayu Yoga or Amithayu or the astrological combinations for full lifespan - This indicates that the death will occur after 100 years.
However, for example if Yogaristha (Yogaja Ayu) Yoga is present in any horoscope, the astrologer should not blindly predict that death will be before 19 years of age. This is because there can be Bhanga Yogas present which means the cancellation of effect (Bhanga means cancellation) of certain types of malefic Yogas. Only after thoroughly judging a horoscope, the astrologer should proceed to predict death as it is the single most important prediction.
Time of Death as per Astrology
Which Planet Is Responsible For Death
Planets who are the lords of the 2nd and 7th houses in any horoscope are known as Maraka or death inflicting planets. Apart for this there is Bhadhak planet or the life obstructing planet which is different for movable fixed and common signs.
For Movable signs Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, the 11th house lord is the Bhadhak or the life obstructing planet.
For Fixed signs Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius, the 9th house lord is the Bhadhak or the life obstructing planet.
For Common signs Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces, the 7th house lord is the Bhadhak or the life obstructing planet.
These Maraka and Bhadhak planets combined bring about death of a person in their periods or sub periods and malefic transits also have to occur simultaneously.
