Third gender: Natural or individual preferences

Adhana chart or prenatal kundali determines whether the child will be a male, female, or third sex at the moment of conception, not at birth. A verse in the Dharma Shastra states like:

“A male child is produced by a greater quantity of male seed, a female child by the prevalence of the female; if both are equal, a third-sex child (napumsa) or boy and girl twins are produced; if either is weak or deficient in quantity, a failure of conception results.” (Manusmriti 3.49)

This verse states that the third sex is biologically determined during the earliest moments of conception. It means people of the third sex are born naturally. There are no external reasons and causes that make them “become” third sex later.

Once Manvendra Singh Gohil, prince of Rajpipla, Gujarat, talked about his sexual preferences and accepted that he was gay. Even, birth charts can also indicate the sexual preferences of natives.

Trijayanand, an astrologer who warned Manevendra against marriage, says, “The planetary positions in the fifth and eleventh house generally give an indication of the person being gay, lesbian, or even a bisexual. For instance, Mars in Tula rashi and Venus in Vrishchik is also a marked indication.”

Astrologer Amabalal Patel says, “Mercury in the fifth position, clearly indicates that the person is a homosexual. Besides this, a strong influence of Venus in a man may also indicate the orientation. We also look for a Mercury-Saturn combination in the planetary positions to decipher one’s sexual orientation.”
