Dhanu rasi is the seat of limbs in natural zodiac. Ninth house rules the same. Saturn is karaka for limbs. Affliction of Dhanu rasi, ninth house, lord of ninth house and Saturn, their conjunction with malefics, situation in evil houses, aspects of malefics over them and any relation with disease inflicting house or planet all these are responsible for affection of the limbs. If Saturn along with lord of ninth house be in dusthana and be also conjoined with any planet, it suggests loss of the limb ruled by the affected house or conjoining planet. Lagna, lord of lagna and Sun, lagna-karaka, have also their parts in affecting the limbs.. While they are afflicted, they may give rise to malefic effect provided houses and planets ruling limbs are also affected. Mesha rasi, first house of natural zodiac also rules the same.
Second house and Brisha rasi rule the right leg. When the conjoining planet be lord of second house or the affected house be second house or Brisha rasi, it may affect the right leg. When twelfth house, its lord or Meena rasi be conjoined, it damages the left leg. Third house and Mithuna rasi rule the right hand, while eleventh house and Kumbha rasi rule the left one. When Mithuna rasi, third house or lord of third house be affected, it damages the right hand, and while eleventh house, its lord or Kumbha rasi be affected, it damages the left hand. Mars is karaka for accidents. When malefic Mars joins them or aspects them, the loss of limb is due to accident. When a disease inflicting house or planet or Saturn be related with them, the loss is after affect of a disease.
Limbs may be also affected from paralysis and other diseases, I have dealt with many diseases concerning limbs in different places in this book.

Example No, 67.
Lagna— Makara ; Saturn and Rahu in Mesha ; Mars, Jupiter and Ketu in Tula ; Sun and Venus: in Brischika ; Moon and Mercury in Dhanu.
This is a case of loss of limb. The Jataka has lost his left leg by amputation. The reasons for the same are :—
- Dhanu rasi ruling limbs is afflicted by strong malefic Rahu. Ninth lord Mercury is also afflicted by Rahu and ninth lord is in dusthana from lagna. Rahu is further afflicting ninth house from Moon.
- Saturn, karaka for limb, and also lord of lagna, is weak, debilitated and heavily afflicted by Malefics. Saturn is also conjoined with Rahu. Sun, lagna karaka, is hemmed between Malefics. Mesha rasi heavily afflicted by conjunction of Saturn and Rahu.
- Twelfth house from lagna ruling left leg is conjoined with sixth lord Mercury and is also afflicted by aspect of Rahu. Twelfth lord Jupiter is conjoined with Ketu and Mars, and is aspected by Saturn and Rahu. Twelfth house from Moon is conjoined with sixth lord from Moon, is hemmed between malefics and twelfth lord Mars is conjoined with Ketu and aspected by Saturn and Rahu. Twelfth house from Sun is conjoined with Mars, sixth lord from Sun and also conjoined with Ketu. Further it is aspected by Saturn and Rahu from sixth house. Twelfth lord Venus is hemmed between malefics.
- Ninth house of natural zodiac is conjoined with sixth lord of natural zodiac. Further the house is twelfth house from lagna. Brisha rasi ruling legs is afflicted by aspect of Rahu. Ninth lords from Sun and Moon are also afflicted. Thus it is seen houses and planets ruling limbs and left leg are afflicted heavily, suggesting loss of left leg by amputation.
