Planet Rahu plays a very imporant role in bringing an intercaste marriage.

Now, as i mentioned earlier that 8 th house plays a major role in unconventional marraige. if 8 th is afflicted by malefics (not only rahu but malefics as per lagna and natural both) and does not get any beneficial effect, its dispositor is afflicted also or holds in his sign any planet which is related with rahu then also this occurs. Again we should not forget 7 th house, his lord and aspects of all kinds on him. The navamsa here again gains a very major role. If navamsa also has rahu in the 7th or afflicted with rahu or a malefic then also it gets blemished and gives intercast marraige. I remember a colleague of mine who was working with me. The 7 th lord jupiter was in 6 th and 6 th lord dispositor Mars was badly afflicted with Rahu. She had in the 5 th house venus in its sign Libra. She had a love marraige recently she was a maharashtrian & the boy was a christian. Of course the 7 th lord was also afflicted in Navamsa. One point to note. A malefic will not hamper his own sign. For example - it is seen that when saturn is aspecting his own sign aquarius / capricon which is placed in the 7 th then his aspect will not dealy the marraige / afflict him. Also, planets of functional nature and as per moon & Venus should be assessed. Not to forget that Up-pada lagna if gets afflicted with rahu in rashi, navamsa or its dispositor gets badly afflicted can cause terrible problems in marraige.

Those are guide lines to show inclination to choose one's partner on their own. Venus, the planet of love should be associated with malefics like Saturn, Mars and Rahu. The lust , if influenced by such planets, goes highly tamasic in nature. Enjoyment becomes the primary importance. Seventh house shows , ones spouse or partner. Fifth house shows one's furture and higher intellect. Any combo of Fifth house lord / Seventh house lord shows one's desire to choose their partner on their own. Ninth house, the house of dharma , if infulenced by malefics make one to break the rules by not listening to Guru/Adviser/father/Elder(ninth house). But do not be mislead that such combinations in Rasi chart alone can make one marry outside their cast. Within a gap of Two hours, thousands of persons are born. Using internet, just find how many people are born all

over the world and just find out how many of them adopt caste system. Caste system is prevalant only in a fraction of the world. To understand those rules, collect and analyse charts of a few of your known people who have married outside caste The present guest article is based on research directed towards marriages between bride and groom belonging to different religions or faiths. Vasudhaiva Kutumbkam? I think not We, as a society, irrespective of caste or religion, are fairly traditional and high premium is placed on conformance to a set of rules. As a result, we find it difficult to accept change and are not comfortable in unfamiliar situations and circumstances. Throughout our lives, we tend to maintain a very strong sense of native vs. foreign. Marriage is one such institution in our society which is subject to lot of customs and traditions. Compatibility of horoscopes, wealth, social stature etc. is given a lot of importance. The procedure of marriage is highly ritualistic and the entire family of bride and groom has a part to play. Marriages outside of religion are still not accepted properly in our society. There is opposition from the immediate family. Spouses are expected to convert, but it is not easy to accept a faith or culture that one is not born with. If there is no conversion, couples usually reach a compromise on the faith children follow. Overall, inter-faith marriages present a lot of challenges that need to be worked out. The ratio of such marriages being entirely successful is also not very high. Lifelong relationship In Indian culture, more often than not, marriage is for a lifetime. We choose to share our life with one individual and the conduct, behavior and idiosyncrasies of one have a profound effect on the other. In a manner of speaking, the husband and wife share a destiny. An encouraging, sincere and devoted spouse is a blessing. Relevant Astrological Combinations Nitin Kashyap has done this research and he presents the following principles and logic behind the observations.

The karakas and bhavas for marriage, religion and foreignness are: 1. Jupiter and Venus: In female chart Jupiter represent husband and in male chart Venus represent wife. 2. Fifth House: Fifth house represent our mentality and love affairs. 3. Seventh house: Seventh house shows ones married life. 4. Ninth House: Ninth house represent religion and luck. This is what you would see to judge religion in this context. 5. Saturn, Rahu and Ketu: These three planets indicate the separating influence in the chart. They represent the foreign element that we should be looking for. Based on the above, some principles which have been observed in different combinations leading to inter religion marriages are: 1. Principle I: For males, Venus should be afflicted by Saturn, Rahu or Ketu. In charts of females, Jupiter should come under separating influence of Saturn, Rahu or Ketu. 2. Principle II: Fifth or seventh house should be afflicted by Saturn. Saturn in fifth house has a special influence and significance on inter religion marriages because from the fifth house, Saturns 3rd drishti would be automatically be on the seventh house. 3. Principle III: Ninth house and its lord should be affected by Trik bhavas and their lords. Since one is going against his/her religion, there should be some bad effect seen on the ninth house. Additionally, ninth house should be afflicted by Rahu/Ketu. 4. Principle IV: Seventh house and its lord should be connected with a debilitated planet or Rahu/Ketu. 5. Principle V: According to Jaimini System, the planet having lowest longitude in a birth chart is called Dara-karak graha (planet representing wife). This planet should be afflicted by Rahu/Ketu or Saturn.

Some I have seen include Rahu or Saturn (must be afflicted) in 7th, very strong Rahu in the horoscope (anywhere), and even a very afflicted Mars in the 7th. Navamsa plays a role but not as much as I would have liked. If Jupiter, Venus, or Moon aspect the 7th, are in the 7th, or in the Lagna this can counteract this (but it depends on their relative

strength). This is my humble opinions on what I have seen in past horoscopes. -WebYogiA person who has an intercaste marriage is probably open minded to accepting this marriage. In other words at all levels he welcomes this. So I would guess the 7th from Karakamsa would also play a vital role in this person being comfortable with people other cultures/traditions. May be has a Rahu or Sat in the 7th from Karakamsa. Also 7th (incase of 1st marriage) from the Navamsa lagna (or 8th therefrom) would indicate the life after marriage - may be has Rahu indicating differing in perspectives/ideologies/traditions etc., Usually 7th in Rasi is what kind of spouse you are looking for (and thereby getting as well). In my experience Rahu in the 7th in Rasi would give an introverted person (Ketu in lagna) - an extroverted, social, dynamic kind of spouse. Role of Planetary Combinations in Love Marriage When two people love each other they have the desire to live together and marry each other. But everybody is not lucky to marry the one they love. Some may succeed and some may not succeed in marrying their beloved. Vedic astrology considers planet yogas responsible for this. Let us see what role planetary combinations plays regarding love marriage in the birth-chart. According to Vedic Astrology, Venus is the significator of love. If Venus is in conjunction with the Ascendant, 5th, 7th, and 11th house then the person is very romantic. Love is a different thing and its conversion into marriage is different. According to Vedic Astrology, the 5th house is the house of love and the 7th house is the house of marriage. When both the houses form a relationship, then two lovers will tie the knot to marry each other. If the 5th house forms an auspicious relationship with the 9th house, two lovers will be blessed to marry each other and live happily ever after. Our Free Services Its not necessary that love marriage will be possible in only these circumstances. If there is no such combination in your birth-chart then there may be other combinations because of which you will have a successful love-life and will get your love as your life partner. If the lord of fifth house, Venus is placed in the seventh house or in its own house there is a possibility of love marriage. In addition, love marriage is also possible when Venus is placed in the Ascendant or in the Moon chart it is placed in the 5th house. Navmansh Kundali is considered as the body of the birth-chart. If there is no such yoga for love marriage in your birth-chart, but there is a combination of the 7th and 9th lord in the Navmansh

kundali, then there are high chances of love marriage. Similarly, If Venus is placed in the Ascendant along with the Ascendant-lord, there is a very strong chance for lovemarriage. Saturn and Ketu are the malefic planets but their combination in the 7th house is benefic for the lovers. If the 5th lord is in conjunction or has its aspect on the 7th lord, the person will have a love-marriage. If Ascendant lord is combined with Moon in the Ascendant or the 7th lord is combined with Moon in the 7th house, it creates the yoga for love marriage. If the lord of the 7th house is in its own house then its lordship helps in love marriage. Due to the influence of malefic planets on the 11th house, the person may not able to marry his love but if it is free from the inauspicious influence of the malefic planets, he will marry the one he loves.
