Marriage is a sacred bond which creates
the relationship as wife and husband
between two different sexes. Marriages
are made in heaven. Is it true? Of course,
to some extent. It is the destiny that acts
between the wife and husband to live
long together with happiness or
unhappiness. Sometimes, the wedlock
breaks at the initial stage or after some
years. In some cases the individuals live
without marriage at all. What are the
factors responsible for all these features?
The individual horoscopes will reveal
their. The astrologer can indicate in a
way, what will take place in future, but
what else, except the Almighty can say
with certainty what will definitely happen.
Now let us discuss briefly some points
astrologically on marriage in the
Horoscope of individuals. The planet
Venus, who is karaka for marriage; the
7th, 2nd, 4th, 5th, and the 8thlords are
responsible for marriage life. Besides
this, the placement of other planets and
the aspects of the planets to the above
houses are to be studied.
Marriages may be early, late or denial.
Early marriage is possible in the following
1. The 7th lord should be in Kendra
or trikona with the constellation of
benefic planets.
2. The 7th house should be aspected
by benefic planets and no
papakartari yoga is present.

3. Venus should be well placed in

Kendra and trikona in the star of
benefic planet. Venus should not
be in the company of malefic
4. Lagna lord should be strong or
aspected to the 7th house.

5. The placement of benefic planets

in the 7th house.
6. The 2nd house should be free from
affliction and with benefic rays.
7. The 4th, for happiness, 5th for
children, and 12th for bed
comforts. So the lords of these
houses should be free from

The late marriages may take place where

there is slight malefic influence to the 7th
house, 7th lord and Venus besides having
benefic influences to the above which
override malefic influences.
Denial of marriage is possible where
there is strong malefic influence to the 7th
house, 7th lord, Venus, 2nd house, and
2nd lord.
Break in wedlock is possible even though
there are benefic positions for marriage,
the malefic influences prevail more and
override the benefic influences. This
leads to divorce or death of the partner.
We cannot elaborate unless the
individual horoscopes are being studied
elaborately and decide the result.
The 8th house denotes longevity of the
natives. In the case of female
horoscopes, if there are benefics in the
8th house or aspected by the benefic
planets to the 8th house would confer
soubhagyam which means the wife

predeceases her husband. Reverse is

the case for opposite results.
Mars Dosha: This is an important aspect
to be considered while deciding the
marital prospects. Mars dosha occurs
where Mars is placed in the 2nd or 4th, or
7th, or 8th, or 12th houses from
ascendant or Moon, or Venus. While
matching the horoscopes of the male and
female, if one of them is having Mars
dosha marriage should not be performed.
If both are having Mars dosha, marriage
can be performed according to the
strength of the same. There are some
exceptions to the rule and the same are
stated below.
Different classic texts stated different
exceptions and sometimes contradict
each other. After analyzing many
horoscopes the following are to be
considered while matching horoscopes.
1. If there is any conjunction with or
aspected by Jupiter, or benefic
Mercury or waxing Moon to the
2. For Cancer and Leo ascendants
there is not Mars dosha.
3. For Aries and Scorpio lagnas 4th
Mars, for Taurus and Libra lagnas
12th Mars, for Gemini and Virgo
lagnas 2nd Mars, for Capricorn
and Cancer lagnas 7th Mars, for
Sagittarius and Pisces lagna 8th
Mars, for Aquarius and leo lagnas
no dosha wherever Mars is
4. There is a saying that for Aries,
Cancer, Leo, Scorpio,
Saggittarius, and Pisces lagnas no
mars dosha.
5. When Mars is in movable sign, no
Mars dosha exists.

There are controversial astrological

works between Jataka Chandrika,
Naradeeyam, and Kalidasa. Further, no
mention about Mars dosha has been
given in any standard works of ancient
origin like Parsara Hora, Phaladeepika,
Brihat jataka, Jataka Parijatha,
Jatakalankara, Satya Charyas, Pancha
Siddhanta etc. Hence too much
emphasis need not be given to Mars
dosha. It is the astrologer who has to go
deep into the strength of other planets
besides the position of Mars in the
horoscope and judge the influence of
Mars on the individual.
Mars and Saturn: The planets Mars and
Saturn are enemies. These two planets
create havoc in respect of married life.
The combination of Mars and Saturn in
any house is undesirable especially in
the houses of lagna, 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th, and
12th houses. It is also undesirable to
have Mars and Saturn in angles to each
other. Their aspect to each other also
creates unhappiness in married life. In
the above cases, where if unsullied
benefics like Jupiter, Venus, and waxing
Moon are in conjunction with Mars and
Saturn or aspect to Mars and Saturn will
mitigate the bad effects to some extent.
Besides the above, the 7th lord should
not be in the evil houses of 3rd, 6th, 8th,
and 12th. Venus should also be free from
affliction. Mars and Venus combination is
bad for marital happiness since Mars is
fiery planet and Venus is watery planet.
Both are enemies, they create over sex
and separation if they are not associated
with benefic planets. For information
sake, we furnish here under the benefic
and malefic planets.
Benefic Planets: Jupiter, Venus, waxing
Moon, unsullied Mercury, and functional

Malefic Planets: Sun, Mars, Saturn,
Rahu, Kethu, waning Moon, and
functional malefics. Besides this, the
planets who own bad houses like 3rd, 6th,
8th, and 12th.
Further it is desirable to have conjunction
of 7th lord with karaka Venus in any
house. But please note that in the case of
Taurus and Libra langnas the 7th lord is
Mars and his association with Venus is
not bad as he happens to be the lagna
lord. Rahu in the 7th house creates death
or divorce to the spouse unless he is in
the star of benefic planet or in
conjunction with benefic planets or
aspected by benefic planets. Second
marriage should be predicted only if
karaka Venus is not strong and well
placed in the horoscope with benefic
planets company or aspect.
Finally, matching of horoscope of boy
and girl is very important before
proceeding for marriage.
