Summary of a study on 14 cases of Duchenne Muscular dystrophy
I have used Shri Jyoti Star software for analysing the birth charts using the Vedic system of astrology.
1) In 12/14 cases there was an affliction to Mars. Mars as was mentioned earlier is related to muscles as well as vigour and vitality.
2) In 12/14 cases Moon was afflicted. One thing Moon is related to is the state of health in childhood.
3) In 13/14 cases Sun was also afflicted. Sun is a signifier of a person’s general health.
4) Lagna lord was afflicted in 12/14 cases. This is the planet ruling the rising sign and plays a major role ones well being.
5) In all cases dasha (Vedic system of timing events) lords at time of birth were either malefics or 8th or 12th lords. Adverse dasha lords operating at the time of birth would generally mean congenital illness and the child is already suffering from illness at birth.
I would like for more parents to send in their children’s birth data and with enough data we should be able to establish a common theme in birth charts of children with muscular dystrophy.
