As per Skanda Puran, Kartikeya had narrated to Muni Agastya about the signs of the coming death. This is as per this ancient scripture.

If one experiences the air coming out of right nostril continuously then it is observed that the person dies within three years. If the breathing is continuous towards upper side from both the nostrils, then the person can die within two three days.
If the breathing is through the mouth instead of the nostrils then the person may live only for two days. The person should take into coignance these signs of the occurance of any sudden death.
As per astrology when the Surya is in the 7th house and Chandrama is in its own house and the breathing is only through the right nostril then the danger exists. If you see a yellow black coloured figure who becomes invisible immediately then the life span is limited to 2 years.
If any person sneezes, passes urine, stool and semen all together he has only a year more to live. If a person sees blue coloured snakes flying in the sky then he has only six more months to live. If a person sees any thing opposite to its real self like colours
or taste in the mouth seems opposite to actually what one is really experiencing then the death is only six months away.

If the body becomes dry even after one has bathed immediately then the person will be alive only for three more months.
If a person does not see his head part in a mirror or water etc will mean that the person has only a month.

If one's intellect gets muffled, has unclear speech, sees a rainbow in night ,observes two moons and Sun instead of one, then the death is only a month away.
If one covers the ears with hands and no sound can be heard, if a healthy person goes on loosing weight, the death is coming in a month.

If a person sees demons, ghosts, crow, dogs, vultures, fox, donkeys and pigs in his dream then the life is not more than a year.
If a person dreams about flowers adorning him, red clothes on his body then the person will face death in eight months.

If a person observes dust covered body or white ants infested house or riding a donkey facing southwards he may live only for six months.
If a person sees his head shaved or sitting on a donkey facing southwards, he may die in six months.

If a person dreams that he is covered in twigs or wood then he has only six months.

If a person dreams of a person with a iron rod and wearing black clothes then
he may live for three more years.

If a person dreams of a evil woman hugging a man then the life is only for month. If a person dreams of riding a monkey facing east direction then he has only five more days.
If a miser becomes generous suddenly and a generous person becomes miser, his death is nearby.

It is better to follow the path of Yog and take shelter in Kashi as only Mahadev has the power to stop the impending death.
