The fifth house of astrology is the one that astrologers look at to answer all the pregnancy related questions. The fifth house in the horoscope represents the child and its related causative elements. If the fifth house of a person has a positive combination of planets, it helps in ensuring a positive scenario for childbirth. Also, the fifth house lord needs to be placed positively in the chart of the native to enjoy pregnancy and related aspects of it.
Alongside the fifth house, other houses that need to be looked at to predict the birth of the child are the 2nd house (house for family) and the 11th house (house for gains and fulfilment of desires through children). We also see the 9th house as it works only as a facilitator.
Along with these houses and their respective lords, the planet Jupiter too is considered to be the main factor when trying to have children. Jupiter in astrology is concerned as the giver planet, and its blessing on the native is hence necessary for childbirth.
Apart from this, the position of the lord of the ninth house and the ninth house itself is analysed through the ascendant horoscope to check the possibilities of childbirth for the couple. So if in your chart these houses or Jupiter are affected by the malefic combinations, then chances of delay in childbirth and pregnancy may arise.
Apart from these planets, the role of the sixth, eighth and dwadash is also prominent. In such a situation, if the guru, i.e. Jupiter is debilitated or weak, then it becomes almost impossible for the couple to have a child for themselves. Because the fifth house also represents the accumulated karmas, in such a situation, happy or painful information related to children can be obtained by looking at this house.
For example, if Saturn, the planet known to cause delay, is affecting any of the aforementioned houses or planets, then you may have to wait for the birth of your child. In fact, at times, the evil effects of Saturn can block the blessings of childbirth for the native. Apart from Saturn, malefic Rahu, Ketu and Mars too are the creators of hurdles when it comes to childbirth. Rahu and Ketu indicate negative deeds related to children. Rahu indicates snake defect and loss of fertility. Rahu also creates Pitra Dosh by influencing Jupiter, which brings troubles in getting child happiness.
