The dictionary meaning of progeny is the young or offspring of a person, animal or plant. Astrologically, progeny is analysed by looking at the male and female birth charts together.
In this article, before bringing the astrological point of view on progeny, I will share the spiritual perspective covering ‘Denial of Progeny’ for a native (person).
Denial of Progeny: Spiritually, a native is born debtor on this earth as the native owes the following three kinds of debts:
A native is reborn to repay these debts. Debt is paid by performing duties in different roles a native play during life, viz. as a son, father, husband, member of society etc. On analysis, we can infer that the concept of Moksha (salvation) is closely linked to the concept of debt.
In fact, we are indebted to plants and animals which sustain us. Somewhere in our professional discussions, we talk of non-financial reporting covering impact of organisations on Environment, Social and Governance (ESG), which can be linked to this.
Let me reflect on ‘Denial of Progeny’, taking a different perspective. If one pays off debt to ancestors by rearing up progeny, is it correct to infer that ‘Denial of Progeny’ means no debt to be paid off to ancestors. In the materialistic world, this may not be appreciated, but spiritually it has relevance. In case of female progeny, it is even believed that by performing the holy ritual (Kanyadaan), the bride’s parents attain Moksha. This is so as the bride (considered as Lakshmi) is given to the groom (considered as Vishnu), which helps the bride’s parents attain Moksha.
It is important to highlight here that childlessness (denial of progeny) may or may not be present in both male and female birth charts. You would have observed that as we deliberate on progeny, we are talking of Moksha. Somewhere these two concepts are interrelated. It becomes pertinent to highlight here that both man and woman play a significant role in each other life while on the path to attain Moksha. They support each other in religious procedures (Dharma), discharging family obligations (Artha) and fulfilling desires with or without sexual connotations (Kama) before progressing towards Moksha (salvation). Thus, both male and female birth chart complement each other to attain Moksha (freedom from rebirth), which spiritually is the ultimate objective of human being.
Sharing a note on Moksha for clarity: There are four Purusartha (aim of a human being) in life viz. DAKM.
D - Dharma (righteousness),
A - Artha (material prosperity),
K - Kama (pleasure, love, desire with or without sexual connotations) and
M - Moksha (liberation from rebirth).
Moksha is the ultimate aim and should be pursued after fulfilling DAK.
The Purusarthas sequence denotes that one must adhere to Dharma, achieve Artha and Kama through Dharma and utilise such achievements to gradually progress towards moksha.
Now let’s have the aforesaid discussion analysed astrologically. The Fifth House in the birth chart of the native signifies progeny. It is also referred to as Poorvapunyasthan or house pertaining to merits one has accumulated in previous life (it is important to look at this aspect in Fifth House as this will highlight the debt owed by the native). It may be noted that delay/ denial of progeny, sex of child is related to Moksha (freedom from rebirth) as well. Thus, it is important to analyse the following in the birth chart of a native:
It is pertinent to note that the natal chart should be seen as a whole to arrive at any firm conclusion. Position of planets in a particular zodiac sign, their aspects, inherent results (malefic, benefic), strength of planets and combinations which they form in various houses in the natal chart must be analysed and interpreted collectively. Moreover, along with same planetary transit is critical and should be considered.
