Balarishta Yogas are those planetary permutations that indicate the death of an infant or child in its first days or early years. These Yogas are what the astrologer needs to resort to during times of traumatic births affecting either the mother or child. Through the careful examination of infant fatality Yogas along with those Yogas that cancel the fatality the astrologer can safely predict the survival of the child, or in unfortunate cases, urge the parents to greater care in the early life of their child. These Yogas also indicate inherent weaknesses in an individual which may plague the person with disease later in life during the Dasas of the Balarishta Yoga forming planets and so these Yogas are very helpful for the medical astrologer. Best of all, these Yogas are easy to apply, very accurate and there is nothing more satisfying than confidently comforting worried parents when their child is born prematurely or with some other life threatening ailment.
