Hello

I have developed an interest in fata degree's, I am curious however where or if there is some kind of literature here that touches on these topics, as well as the significance of unique degree and its relation to ones rashi or planetary relationships. I think i have it the worst having a fatal degree moon, but interestingly I live on a moon trine line, though that I think only works so well as a remedy.

I dont know what the sort of degree of error there is with this, such as if its only applicable within 1 degree, etc, but since I have this in multiple places in my chart, is there also some rashi aspecting going on there? The planets which are fatal are about within 2 degrees of each other.

By the way, does this also apply to the outer planets? I cant find much of them with regard to this.

I believe if you search the term "fatal degrees" in the search bar, you will find that this question has been asked before. It primarily applies only in the Rasi chart (D1) and maybe D30 (?). Also, considered during the "age" of planet, so for instance fatal degrees of Moon are MOST concerned during age 0-1 year, Mars 1 - 3 years and so on through the grahas/ages. Primarily used in longevity yoga's. 

“One should know that the age of the Moon is one of drinking
milk; that of Mars is one of growing teeth; that of Mercury is the
time of learning one’s lessons and extends up to the time when one
begins to be agitated by a desire for sexual intercourse; that of
Venus is youth, which has been described previously in this rule
(by the desire for sexual intercourse); that of Jupiter extends upto
46
middle age; the age of the Sun is another beyond that middle age;
and that of Saturn is the unfortunate time of old age.”
Yavanajataka of Sphujidhvaja: 39, 4

Other applications for fatal degrees (in D1) is said to be consideration of Muhurta or karakas.

Fatal degrees for the outer planets, are not programmed into kala. I don't believe that any texts gave conditions/avastas/strength to transpersonal planets. Vedic astrology concerns itself more with what is and what is not, concrete physical reality and focus is on the visible planets.

Hope this helps.

@ltmoon Per what I remember, there wasnt much on the topic, unless this is a trick comment? More to my interest, where did you get this quote from? I have a fatal degree moon in pisces in the 5th house if that helps as I cant seem to get a reply from Ernst on this. From what it seems they are usually not as bad from what ernest commented on one post given that it seems to mainly effect childhood, though in my case that would seem to be more on having children an possibly working with them, which is curious given my recent pursuits on that as a career.

I dont know why it is often said that this is a western astrology facet, but many vedic astrologers use it, and some even include fatal ascendant and mandi fatal degree's. What I am particularly concerned about is that 3 of my planets are around the 12 degrees in which that is around, so there is some rashi aspecting there, so I am concerned for myself, as I am prone to much despair and internal agony. 3 others are close, including jupiter, mars, and most worryingly the ascendant which is also 12 degrees. Moon trine line does seem to help, along with select stones, though moving away from that trine line has been historically quite difficult for me.

This astrologer developed a system I believe on the degrees.

Yeah, I think that this comes from the western traditition. Might still be true, who knows, many in that tradition says so.
