Many contestants gave answers according to the rules, but only one among them is to be given the honor of the best answer and this time, the title for the best answer goes to ”Vinay Jauhri”.

His answer:

Ref: Kundli- Male- May 13, 2003, 11:30 am , Delhi

The boy is suffering from "under developed brain". The reasons are as follows:

1. Mercury is the lord of the 12th house and the 3rd house and both are bad houses ( and also disease giving houses )

2. Mercury represents brain.

3. Mercury is combust Sun ( 9 degrees apart )

4. Mercury is not friends to lagna ( either Jupiter or Moon )

5. The boy is born with Moon ( also lagna lord ) in Hasta nakshatra so he cannot have problem to limbs.

6. There cannot be a problem in limbs because of exalted Jupiter in lagna. Moreover Parashara says that although Jupiter is 6th lord , still it is a benefic for Cancer ascendant.

7. He cannot be blind because Venus ( karaka for eyesight ) is in Kendra and also Sun ( lord of 2nd ) is exalted ( although not completely exalted )

8. Venus is not combust Sun ( by degrees ) so he cannot be blind.

9. He cannot be mute because lord of 2nd ( Sun) is exalted and is sitting in Kendra and Sun is a friend of Lagna lord.

10. Mercury is eighth from lagna lord and is combust with Sun

Also, lord of the 8th Saturn is in 12th, and Saturn contributed to the problem of "under developed brain "
Please let me know if my analysis was correct.

Why Is Option (A) The Right Answer?

The native is born under Cancer ascendant and the zodiac sign of Virgo. Moon’s constellation is Hasta and the ascendant’s is Aslesha. Hence, Moon is in its own Nakshatra (constellation), whereas ascendant is in the Nakshatra of Mercury. It is natural that the native will be more influenced by the Moon and Mercury. Jupiter is the lord of the house of ailments, and is positioned in the zodiac sign of Moon as well as in the constellation of Saturn. Hence, here again, along with Moon, Saturn is influencing the native. Due to the impact of Saturn, we can say that the native’s problem will be of long term. It means that situation may not be kept under control easily. Additionally, Jupiter’s situation is showing that either the native will be a genius or his intelligence might face obstruction. This will be due to the exalted position of Jupiter, which indicates that the native will be an epitome of knowledge; although, it might only occur when ascendant or lord of ascendant are in a good position. Additionally, the position of their (ascendant and ascendant lord) lord of the sign as well as constellation should be good.

In this case, roles of Moon, Mercury, Jupiter, and Saturn are coming into the limelight; where Moon is posited in the sign of Mercury, while Mercury is combust as well as retrograde. Moon doesn’t have the effect of any favorable planet. On the other hand, Moon is aspected by Rahu. Mercury is combusted after being retrograded, whereas Saturn is in twelfth house. Here, Jupiter is just providing intelligence, but this intelligence would be of any use only when the native’s body (ascendant) will be having the power to bear it.

In Vedic astrology, inauspicious or troublesome situations are considered from the D-30 chart. Capricorn is the ascendant of D-30. Hence, Saturn is the lord of D-30. It has gone into Aries, which is not auspicious. Significator of good health, Sun is also in Libra, which is slightly negative. Hence, the native is indicated to be suffering from an ailment.

Moon and Mercury are the significators of mind and brain. Their affliction may cause obstruction to all the processes of brain. As the native has got this disease by birth, it is very important to check the planetary conditions at birth time. The native was born under the major period of Moon and the sub-period of Saturn. The conjunction of Moon-Saturn is considered as Vish Yoga (poisonous combination). Even if Moon and Saturn are not in conjunction here, but their periods at the same time may affect the native’s entirely life very adversely. It is believed that people suffering from Vish Yoga gets disappointed from the life. Disappointment comes when brain doesn’t work properly and intellect faces obstruction. If I have to summarize it, Vish Yoga gives lack of reasoning power. This states that the native born in the major period of Moon and sub-period of Saturn is not expected to face favorable effects in life. So, the native is likely to face mental disturbances. If we take an in-depth consideration of the birth-chart, we can find that Saturn and Moon is posited in the sign of Mercury. Mercury symbolizes intelligence, which is retrograde and combust. Hence, affliction of Mercury and Moon caused mental problems or instability to the native; whereas, Saturn made it incurable.
