Am I at risk of an accident?

A dear friend of mine has been worried lately as many astrologers have apparently told him that he faces a risk of being in an accident. He knows that I dabble a little bit into astrology as a hobby myself and asked me to check. My first advise to him was to consult with a more experienced astrologer and also to exercise necessary caution while driving and not take any unnecessary risks at all in general. Then I got down to examine in my own amateur way his horoscope.

First let us see, why he has been advised to remain cautious of 'accidents'. Please see below his horoscope and the Nadi significators:

As can be seen from the birth chart, Mars is at 27:48:16 and Saturn is at 25:00:25 degrees in the Aquarius sign. This close conjunction of MA and SA (less than 3:20 degrees) is considered a strong facilitator of accidents. 

Next, look at the Nadi significators. The combination of 1 4 8 12 (6-optional) is considered the combination for accidents. We find this combination in three planets: RA, KE and SU. 

RA and KE are considered to be natural malefics and also the karakas for sudden events. Since accident is a sudden event, this should also be considered to be a strong significator of an 'accident yoga' in his chart. 

No wonder he must be very cautious in his conduct, esp wrt accidents.

However, I have a slightly different take on this issue as well. Since the accident combination occurs only in three out of 9 planets, I so not consider it extremely serious. The issue is that my friend is currently running the dasha and bhukti of Rahu and Ketu. So it is this combination that is applicable now and it makes sense to be alert especially during the conjoined periods of RA, KE and SU.

But lets look at it from a different approach, the Krishnamurti Paddhati:

As per Krishnamurti ji, "Accident can happen only when the sub lord of the 8th cusp is deposited in the constellation of a planet signifying the 8th house and it happens in the conjoined period of the significators of cusps 1 and 8. It will be fatal only if the sub lord of the 8th cusp is in the constellation of the significator of Badhaka or Marakasthana" (Page 54 of Astro Secrets and Krishnamurti Paddhati - III by K. Subramaniam)

There are three main points here. First point is on whether the kundali is allowing an accident to happen at all. The other two are about the timing and impact of the accident if it is allowed to happen.

Let us look at my friends chart carefully. The sublord of the 8th cusp is Saturn. Saturn is deposited in a constellation (star) owned by Jupiter. Let us look at Jupiter's significations:

Jupiter owns 10th and 1st cusp. Jupiter is in star of Mars which owns 2nd and 9th cusp. Mars is posited in the 12th cusp and Jupiter is itself posited in the 3rd cusp. Therefore, Jupiter signifies: 1 2 3 9 10 12

Thus the first condition of KP is itself not satisfied. ie. the 8th CSL (Saturn) is posited in Jupiter, but Jupiter does not signify the 8th house! As such, as per the KP method, no accident is written in RM's destiny.

Also, look at this quote from the book Astro Secrets and Krishnamurti Paddhati II by K Subramaniam on page 53, "The 8th Bhava indicates, in our life, big disappointments, Jail, punishments, accidents. But if the Sub-Lord gets strong signification for anyone Houses of 1,2,3,6.10. "a person need not at all worry about, whatever may be the Dasa is on or to come. The Sub·Lord gets the power to divert the results of the Dasa Lord."

Now lets look at the significations of 8th CSL (Saturn). Saturn as we have seen earlier is in Jupiter owned star. Saturn owns 11th and 12th cusp, and is posited in 12th. Jupiter owns 10th and 1st and is posited in 3rd. So Saturn's significations are 1, 3, 10, 11, 12.

Thus we can see that apart from 12th, the 8th CSL is signifying plenty of positive houses and thus as per KP will have the power to divert the extremely bad results of the 8th house and mitigate their impact. Another rule of KP (from Page 138 of The Third Reader), says that the CSL of the 1st house must signify 1 and 8 for the native to meet with accidents and danger. In RM's case, luckily even this rule isnt being fulfilled.

Thus overall I feel RM need not be too worried about accidents, but he should follow his common sense, advise of more experienced astrologers and exercise caution, especially during the joint periods of RA, KE and SU.

But, K.P. says, to the best of my limited understanding, NO ACCIDENTS.

In addition to this, I decided to confirm the result using a Prasha Kundali. The question asked by RM was "Do I have risk of car accident till end of the year 2016", the seed number given by him to allow me to fix the ascendant was 28.

The below is the horoscope and the Nadi significators:

As can be seen clearly, from the significators table, there is no combination of 1 4 8 12 present in the horoscope at all. Specifically the question was for till end of 2016. That period will include the ongoing Mercury Dasha, Sun Bhukti, Moon, Bhukti and Mars Bhukti. None of these planets signify the complete combination of 1 4 8 12 (6). Clearly the prashna kundli is indicating that RM will not face an accident, even if one is faced it will likely be a very minor one.

Even using, KP logic, we can see that the 8th CSL is Moon. Moon is deposited in the star of Mercury. Mercury* is signifying houses 7 1 4 2 3, ie. it is not signifying 8. Thus again we see, no accident is promised.

*Mercury owns 2 and 3. Mercury is placed in 1st house. Mercury is in the star or Moon. Moon owns 4 and Moon is situated in 7. Hence Mercury signifies 2 3 1 4 7.

As always, this is astrology. Take it with a pinch of salt. I do not represent this post or indeed any post as infallible.

Hope God gives RM, what is best for him!
