Many of us use astrology to make predictions in our lives – often to great effect. Astrology has proven itself time and again as being an excellent way of making predictions to improve our lives. So with that in mind can we use astrology to make the greatest prediction of all and predict when we are going to die?

Can Astrology Predict Death

Astrology can indicate when an intense or transformational experience is likely to occur. Death is one of the rare things in astrology, which is very difficult to predict. Based on the planet position, Dasha, and Sub-Dasha period, one can tell that death may occur.

In astrology, there is no short-cut unique method to predict death. There are several factors, elements, and combinations that could result in the death of a native. Besides, the exact timing of death can’t surely be predicted because astrologically these are only indications, which may or may not be avoided. There is no one planet that is a bad omen and which suddenly heralds the prospect of death if it appears in your chart. If we are using astrology to predict death then we need to look at the positions of every plant in conjunction with the sun in our natal chart along with the Dasha system.

Planets that help us Predict How One Can Die

So, we get planetary alignments, several times in our lives, which could result in the death of a native. However if one will actually die or not depends on several other factors, all of which can’t be explained in an astrological chart.

Planetary Alignments in Astrology

1. Shani – Saturn

Serious Saturn is referred to as father Time as it governs things likely to happen in our lives. In that instance, Saturn is often responsible for things beginning and ending for us. Although that does not mean that this planet can tell us when we are going to die all by itself. It usually signals the death of things such as relationships, employment, or even point out to spiritual death. Positive and Negative Effects of Saturn in 12 Houses )

2. Aruna or Indra Chakra – Uranus

The planet Uranus in many ways is the opposite of Saturn and it heralds sudden events or in this case, it can indicate sudden death that comes out of the blue. Uranus also rules surgery and accidents and it is a planet that is associated with strange and unexpected events.

3. Varuna – Neptune

Neptune as you would expect rules water-related issues so when it relates to our demise it can point to drowning, also having an accident in the water. People who have Neptune in their charts that have been activated somehow at the time of their death may die in a way that is unexplained or death may happen while sleeping.

4. Yama – Pluto

The planet Pluto is linked to violent death and often one which features some kind of serious trauma. An example of this could be a sudden aneurysm that kills the person instantly or an accident which results in a huge injury.

5. Mangal – Mars

Mars is linked to violence or violent death. It also rules aspects like fire guns and knives so it can mean that the death will come as a result of a shooting, stabbing, or fire. Whatever the form it takes it is usually traumatic and sudden. Death as a result of a Mars aspect is swift. Positive and Negative Effects of Mars in 12 Houses )

6. Sukra – Venus

If people die in their sleep or slip away peacefully at the end of a long illness, Venus is prominent in their natal charts. If Venus is indeed around at the time of the death it can ease the suffering not just of the victim but also of those around them. In this way, death can also sometimes be looked in a positive manner for the one who is dying. Positive and Negative Effects of Venus in 12 Houses )

7. Brihaspati – Jupiter

Jupiter rules tumors so in this sense it is linked to cancer and death as a result of an incurable disease. This can be seen clearly if Jupiter has been activated as a result of transits in a natal chart. Also, it is linked to slow death as this is not as violent as Mars.

8. Surya – Sun

It is the actual position of the sun with other planets that help us to predict death. So the sun and its position in our natal chart are closely linked with who are we going to die. Positive and Negative Effects of the Sun in 12 Houses )


The answer is fairly simple actually; astrology can predict not just death but all sorts of important things in one’s life. Astrology is not merely fantasy and mythology but a hard science based on mathematical calculations of the movements of planets, and their effect on our lives. It has been proven by science that such celestial movements have subtle effects on a person’s daily life.

We see so many astronomical events creating a stir around the planet all the time. The control of the moon over tidal waves and the behaviors of animals, the strange connection between the sunflower and the sun, etc. are all so objective and undeniable. Such that it is quite logical to say that the mood and consciousness and the actions we take may also be affected by such movements. It is not all that difficult to imagine that people who studied such a phenomenon are not able to establish the connection between our life, the condition of our health, and the possible length of our lifespan too.

The key, however, remains to be the right kind of astrologer, just because so many shops in the world sell synthetic gold, it doesn’t mean that real gold does not exist at all. In conclusion, a really good astrologer can find the date of one’s death to the year, month, date, and even time of the day. You just need to find one.

So, what do you think about death prediction?
