2. Rasi Kuta: (7)
Happiness, auspiciousness and harmony in marriage

Principle 1: The male born in the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th Rasis from that of the female
should not enter into wedlock. If both have the same Janma Rasi, marriage can only be
done provided both are not of the same Janma Nakshatra. This means that the Janma Rasi
of the man should not be in the Adrisya portion from the Janma Rasi from the woman.
From any sign, the Adrisya (Invisible half) are the Lagna (beyond the cusp) to the 7th
(before the Cusp), for practical purpose this can be taken as 2nd to 6th.

Madhavacharya has given more specific effect of the placement of the male’s Janma rasi in
the unfavorable positions from the females Janma rasi. They are as follows:

2nd: Loss of Money
3rd: Sorrow
4th: Quarrels and Misunderstanding
5th: Loss of Children
6th: Diseases, Danger and Separation

Principle 2: Along with the placement mentioned above, the placement in the 8th and
12th from the Janma rasi of the Women is not favorable. This is understandable, that the
Dusthana placement of the man’s rasi from that of women’s cannot be favorable for
conjugal happiness as they would either be inimical or indifferent from each other.

Principle 3: Even if the lords of the man’s and woman’s rasis are foe, if they are 7th from
each other, this can be accepted as very good.
