2. The Moon well aspected by Jupiter was another point.
3. Some astrological classics state that if in a night birth there are malefics in the lagna, they too offer protection.

Transits on April 1, 1993
After Saturn transited into Aquarius in March 1993, the child started improving and in April 1993 he became normal in the sub-sub-period of Jupiter in the major period of Jupiter and the sub-period of Mercury.
This is the story of the second son of Sri C.V. Avadhani, of the Indian Audit and Accounts Service from which I retired in November, 1990.
