Grouping of Houses
1. Consider the houses 1, 8 and 3 for longevity.
2. [a] Maraka Houses. The 12th to any particular house denotes non-existence of the matter signified by that particular house. So the houses 12 (12th to 1), 7 (12th to 8 ) and 2 (12th to 3) are known as the maraka (death dealing) houses.
[b] Badhaka houses. The house11 is badhaka (harmful to life) to those born in Moveable signs as their Ascendants; the 9th for those born in Fixed signs and 7th for those born in Common signs.
3. Death. The Badhaka houses are more harmful than the Maraka houses. So for death consider first the Badhaka house and then Maraka houses. Saturn is the chief governor of longevity.
Consider the Ascendant for health.
