Prediction of Longevity in Astrology

“जातस्य हि ध्रुवो मृत्युर्ध्रुवं जन्म मृतस्य च |तस्मादपरिहार्येऽर्थे न त्वं शोचितुमर्हसि ||”
Chapter-2, Verse -27,
Shreemad Bhagwad Gita

“Death is certain for all those who are born and rebirth is true equally. So there is no point in lamenting over it.”

” When my life ends”, “What is my aayu”,. “What is his or her aayu”; probably every Astrologer, Palmist, Numerologist, Tarot Reader faces this question numerous number of times in his life. Longevity related deliberations are heard with utmost seriousness by all those who believe in Astrology and even the non believers. It is probably the most discussed topic in this realm of occult. This is one of the two fold objective of astrology, i.e. to determine “Aayuscha”- The Longevity and “Lokyatra”– The Things that Unfold in this life time.

“Aayu” is the tenure of physical form of the present birth. It takes clue from earlier life and provides lead to next birth. Karma, Sanchit or Prarabdha is influenced by Kriyaman Karma of this life. The fructification of different yogas inherent in Natal Chart only takes the physical dimensions, so far so there is a promise of longevity in Birth chart. So “Aayuscha” per se becomes the most important subject of study in astrology. The Great Rishi Parashara, Jamini, Varhamihira, Vyasa and countless erudites have done extensive study in this subject and propounded different theories which have become an immortal treasure for humanity.

Every Rashi provides a Canvas on which Planets orchestrate to define this path by their placements, ownership of Bhavas Conjunctions, Strength, Beneficence or Malificience.
Every Rashi whether “Shishodaya” or “Prishthodaya” or”Ubhayodaya” has in itself some embedded code for functionalities for different planets. Aayu based on mobility estimation by comparing Chara, Sthira and Dwara properties of Lagna, Chandra, Hora Lagna, Eighth house lord is very common and most practiced and reliable. Alpayu, Madhyayu and Purnaayu deliberations help an astrologer to discount for the errors and maintain credibility of the judgment.
There are Calculative methods also like finding Pindayu, Amsaayu and Nisargayu based on strength of Sun, Lagna and Moon respectively after adjustments for Haranas (Reductions) and Bharana (Additions). This method suffers from its own inaccuracies and is a debatable subject.

Research works in present times by astrologers from Indian and Western Diasporas have also given valuable and useful insights to this subject. It will be unjust, if we miss to mention Prof. Krishnamurthy and his collegiums consisting of so many erudite astrologers. We are really thankful to them for their endeavor to keep this Knowledge alive through spreading it amongst commoners. Even after all these research works and proven theories, one thing is certain that even best efforts to find accuracy to calculate age of a person also fails miserably. This error in calculation may be due to inaccurate data or Calculative error. This may also be due to inexperience of amateur astrologers to decode the signal and comprehend birth chart indication properly.

This topic is so vast and unfathomable, which is acknowledged by the fact that it has been researched over thousands of years and yet remain a mystery. We hope in present times also some serious research is being carried out in this subject so that astrologers do not miss the enjoyment of swimming in this abyss and the wonderful journey of exploration is carried forward to next generation.
