3The Sun, the father of those embodied possessed of flesh, is manifold at the time of infusion of semen into a body. According to the size, it produces long, short, and medium bones among the bodies.
4Also, from the influence of their nature of the aṃśaka (portion) of the position, the Moon causes the growth of the skin, complexion, and flesh. But those remaining with those innate dispositions produced from the positions of the bhāgas (portions), those should produce their own respective guṇas (qualities) among those previously spoken.
5Then at the time of a sexual union of a man and woman, if the Sun, the Moon, Mars, and Venus are situated in their own vargas, those should become endowed with an agreeable nature and those should conceive embryos among their own beds.
6There, the Sun and Venus situated in zodiac signs possessed of beneficence should become to cause the birth of a named puṃs (male) fetus. But the Moon and the Sun situated in their own mūla(trikoṇas) cause a named strī (female) fetus.
7With these [the Sun, Venus, and the Moon] situated in a disagreeable, apacaya (all houses, but the 3rd, 6th, 10th, and 11th), or enemy zodiac signs, with those remaining situated in benefic zodiac signs; in this case, those impregnations ought to be a production of perished semen from the lagna and also from Jupiter.
8At birth those situated in an enemy (zodiac signs), debilitation (zodiac signs), tormented aṃśas (portions), or dwelling with malefics and are weak, colorless, and harsh; those destroy the wombs with succession or those let loose a miscarriage in the womb.
9Those arising from the ten lords of the month are of Mars, Venus, Jupiter, the Sun, the Moon, Saturn, Mercury, lagna, the Moon, and the Sun. With the successes and failures of these, those are possessed of the planets.
10In the first month is the mixing of the sperm and ovum, in the second is a mass of eggs, in the third are limbs, in the fourth are bones, sinew, and a head, in the fifth are the marrow and skin.
11But blood, hair, nails, and liver should be in the sixth, activities of the seventh month occur in the mind; thirst, hunger, and taste should be in the eighth; and touch, perception, and pleasure should be in the ninth.
12The entire body of the fetus made known with the organs of the senses is born in the tenth, the month of the Sun. Thus, those dwelling in the wombs among all those beginning with the Vipras (sages) are the stages of time divided into ten caused to spoken.
13But those endowed with strengths from the vigor of nature perform nourishment and the fulfilment of the qualities at one’s own time. Those strengths are broken when squeezed by a malefic planet destroy one’s own respective (time), even those situated in a benefic zodiac sign.
14The Sun arrived at whatever is seen in the thirty lava (degrees), such is seen of one’s own nature and done by the inner self. And those navāṃ śas are possessed of strength from the position of the lagna or the position of the Moon, in regard to the outward appearance.
15The form is from those two, or from the union of the Moon or from the union of the Sun from the named drekas (third portions), or from the planet which is strong in time, yoga, etc. of those. Among those arising from the discharge of semen are those are caused to be spoken.
16The lagna, etc. in the union of the division of the body in the head, etc. are connected with the twelve. The measure of the directions of the planets, the aṃśas (portions) of the planets, and the positions of those among the limbs are short, tall, and medium measures.
17Indeed, the malefics and those injured situated in an unfavorable portion with malefics are those causing the striking of those, but those benefics and those giving the beneficial abundant with strength are those beautiful limbs of those at the time of seminal discharge and birth.
18But malefics situated in the seventh, sixth, or eighth houses from the zodiac sign of the Moon or lagna, strike the womb. But the malefics in one zodiac sign beginning with the Sun, those cause deterioration among the limbs.
19The named kṣ etra (zodiac sign) which is ninth from the Moon with moving in regular course, those arrived during impregnation and during birth assemble in that zodiac sign and also the Moon from the aṃśaka (portion) of the lagna; are entitled to great strength.
20Those [planets] named puṃ s (male) joined among the odd, male aṃ śakas (portions) when situated in the lagna in the aṃśa (portion) of those [masculine] and when the varga of the Moon and Sun are situated in a male aṃ śaka (portion) it should be composed of masculinity from dwelling in a masculine.
21But then those situated in feminine aṃśas (portions) or even zodiac signs dwelling in the lagna are named strī (female) or those named strī (female) arisen [referring to female planets], those males [referring to planets] without strength, and those female aṃśas (portions) in the lagna cause the birth of women.
22The Sun and Jupiter situated in the varga of the Sun abundant with strength are determined for the birth of a male. The Moon, Venus, Mars in the varga of the Moon produce the birth of a female when the Moon is without strength.
23A single [planet] named puruṣ a (male) in an odd zodiac sign or varga and more powerful situated with the Moon in a masculine aṃ śaka (portion) and aspected by a male, or also situated in one’s own exaltation or situated moving in an angle, gives birth to a male.
24Even a single [planet] situated in the first aṃśa (portion) in an even (zodiac sign) and situated in one’s own aṃśa (portion) with superior strength is the maker of a named strī (female). Or also, situated in one’s own exaltation should be the maker of a female birth. And also, from a position of strength should be the maker of a male sex organ (a male).
25A named puṃ s (male) situated in one’s own exaltation possessed of strength in the lagna and aspected by a more powerful male, that planet is declared the maker of a male birth. A named strī (female) should produce a female in sexual union, in this case.
26Mercury and Saturn in one’s own aṃ śa (portion), situated in the angles of the lagna , or in the aṃśa (portion) of the zodiac sign of the lagna or the Moon or the two indicated (the lagna or the Moon) aspected by those two (Mercury and Saturn), cause the birth of a hermaphrodite.
27The two situated (Mercury and Saturn) in the position of a named puṃs (male) produce a hermaphrodite with the very essence of a form which is the same as a puṃ s (male). Thus in this case, the two situated in the named strī (female) produce the nature and dress of a female and like a strī (female).
28When a named napuṃ saka (hermaphrodite) is joined with the Moon or the lagna , or an aṃ śa (portion) is aspected by those named napuṃ sakas (hermaphrodites), you must know a hermaphrodite in the form of a hermaphrodite among those positions occuring at impregnation or birth.
29When situated in a named dvimūrti (dual-form) in a portion of Mercury abundant in strength and angular, or when situated in the zodiac sign of the Moon or the lagna in a dual-natured aṃśaka (portion), those are declared at the impregnation producing twins.
30Also, [a planet] with abundant strength situated in or aspecting a dual-form aṃśa (portion) in the lagna are the named yamala (twins). And Mercury in the varga of the Moon should invariably produce the offspring of twins.
31Mercury, indeed, unaspected, indeed, situated in the lagna in a dual aṃśa (portion) is one giving birth to twins. Even among the rules for men and women, the fetus is declared giving birth to twins among the dual-natured aṃśakas (portions).
32But Jupiter situated in a named yamala (dual-natured) aṃśa (portion) related to Mercury, or situated together with a very strong Mercury or aspected by Mercury situated in one’s own aṃśa (portion), then it is also declared for the birth of twins.
33When all those are situated in the lagna among the dual-formed portions of the dwellings of Mercury or those are possessed of strength in one’s own vargas aspected by Mercury, then those declare procreation of three embryos at an early stage of gestation.
34Indeed, if that with those yogas of impregnation is similar and also the planetary yogas with different positions does not occur, then the previous result is even greater and produced arising from the birth of that.
35The Sun is the father during the day and Saturn is the father at night. Those foremost declared Venus the mother during the day and the Moon is to be determined the mother at night always during impregnation, gestation, and birth.
36The positions with those strengths and weaknesses of the mutual conjunctions; those best and worst positions, aspects, etc.; and those ages, complexions, and qualities; one should know the characteristics pertaining to the mother and father.
37One should find the declared characteristic difference of the father among the odd zodiac signs and of the mother among the even zodiac signs. From the positional yoga of Jupiter, the guru and also the birth class is to be established during the day and night.
