agreement union pairing yoke L-7 in Bhava-1.
Auspicious and identity-enhancing position+ L-7 in 7th-from-swakshetra.
Identified with Bargains, deals, agreements, contracts, negotiations, seeking
alliances made to promote mutual interest, marriage, partnership, union.
A bargainer, negotiator, agreement-seeker.
Marital-partner and business-partners build one 's capacity for iconic and
symbolic body-image representation.
Developing the charisma of the psycho-physical appearance is the most
important result of contractual partnership.
The social identity is deeply invested in being yoked = holding attribute of "in-
self-definition = one is a coupled person, a properly contracted person, and a
socially balanced person, a promise-keeper.
No matter the degree of conflict or incompatibility, divorce is often too high a
price to pay for this native because one is deeply identified with the "married"
One's choices in life are much determined by the spouse and the spouse's
If the spouse is caring and dignified, one 's own uncertainties are much

alliances and unions."

agreements, loyalty, relationships,
brokering, consulting, advising.
one is deeply identified with their role as a marriage and business partner.
Social identity = infused with the qualities of balance, mutual appreciation,
negotiation, collaboration, arbitration, law courts, fairness, due process.
Specifically for L-7 Chandra-3:
good placement for a caring, parental-style business manager. Success in
short-term planning, scheduling, writing, frequent travel, project
management, training tasks. Many advising and consulting relationships.
Radix yuvati-pathi Chandra contributes a portion of the profile of the mate.
L-7 in 9th from 7th suggests that ones spouse will be philosophical, ritually
religious, and fortunate overall

Chandra can lead to chronic reactivity and worrying. The mate will need to
learn to relax his busy mind.

L-7 in Bhava 2

Verbal Method of Crafting Agreements

Verbal Method of Crafting Agreements
L-7 in Bhava-2 = marriage partnership promise vow balance diplomacy
brokerage agreement union pairing yoke
L-7 in 8th-from-swakshetra = Destruction-and-rebirth of agreements,
arrangements, matches, contracts --
esp the marriage contract.
A fast cycle of death-and-rebirth affects all promises, contracts, trusts.
Presuming that L-7 is favorable for matters of pleasures, harmonious design,
and equitable contract,
the second marriage is generally much easier.
One may perceive that while the first marriage had a known purpose,
it is indeed that the second marriage which is more satisfyingly balanced.
Spouse builds one 's capacity for treasure-acquisitions.
Developing the historic bloodline or cultural lineage of both wealth and
may be the most important outcome of marriage.
Problematic for the first marriage unless compensation.
The spouse may be psychologically complex [8] with mysterious dealings [8].
Similar to the "virtual widowhood" of L-7 in bhava-8.
It is as if the spouse is married to the greater world, and not to a human
Spouse is concerned with the zeitgeist, performing on the stage of history,
huge movements of social values change, and major turnings of the cycle of
birth and death.
The spouse is self-identified as a public agent of transformation and change.
Most of the relationship energy is diverted into developing the spouse's own
role upon the world stage.
As a result, one is ignored.
Indeed one may feel quite unworthy of requesting the spouse's interest,
since to do so would distract them from the greater matters which demand
their attention..
As a result of the spouse's energy being largely consumed with giant
transformative forces [8]
one may not get the marital attention one requires.
One 's simple need for companionship gets somewhat left behind in the
partner's concern with larger social issues,
and unless one is willing to sacrifice one's own life in the process, marital
infidelity can easily result.
Potential for a hidden (8th from) supplemental companion, and the companion
is also married.
L-7 in bhava-2 may signify a second marriage which is better aligned with one
's deeper life needs than the first.
The second marriage typically fulfills one 's positive expectations of spousal
love and commitment.

spouse will strongly resemble either of the parents, more often the mother.
Spouse is comfortable working at home or with matters of local security, such
as in a home office or serving as a guardian of lands, local police, night
watchman etc.
One may carry on business negotiations (7) in the home also, and a home
office in the lower levels esp the basement is suitable.
There is much business transacted in the home in fact, one needs a bit of a
hiding place sometimes in order to avoid the consequences of one's business
such as fame that attracts aggressive photographers
A female marriage partner is primarily a mother-figure and steadily parental in
their sheltering, protective style.
Spouse builds one 's capacity for sheltering and establishing a home.

profits from alliances, bargaining, deal-making, negotiating abilities
one is gainful in politics, creative performance, children, and speculative
However for Shukra-ruled nativities, if L-7 Mangala occupies putra bhava,
the alliance is unable to withstand the life-force energy of a child created in
this union.
Therefore one may experience a pattern of marital alliance becoming
unsustainable after creating a child.
Good for partnerships in the creative and political arts.
Agreements are beneficial and stable with those who support one's
performance activities.
Lord of 3rd-from-5th in Bhava-5 brings business-administrative skills into the

theatrical topics.
Yuvatipathi uncomfortable in swabhava of Shukra's enemy Surya.
L-7 carries in" the spouse-choosing and partner-mating energies.
L-7 in bhava-5 is one of the classic indicators of "love marriage "as distinct
from " arranged marriage.
Whether this situation is considered beneficial or not varies by culture.
One is strong-willed in choosing a mate on the sole basis of one's own feelings
and judgment.
Life's expression of trust, all contracts and agreements, including marriage
contract, are strong expressions of the individual creativity and power of will.

Employment contracts, all legal agreements, trade and barter relationships,

commercial partnerships,
are affected by one 's powerful sense of willful independence and personal
One may prefer to work as an " independent contractor" rather than suffer
bondage to a restrictive contract.
The spouse is typically faithful and friendly since 11th-from is an inherently
friendly and associative angle.
The couple will enjoy a large community social life.
The partner is a great help in politics, And especially gainful in large networks
for fund-raising.
Yuvati bhava = 7th-from-7th, an important bhava for career.
Good indicator for career support from a network of contractors and agreeable
partners that benefits entertainers,
politicians, creative artists.
It is easy for others to find their mutual interest with this native's political or
theatrical career.
Spouse builds one 's capacity for creating children and other performance art.
Political, royal, and literary performance is the most important result of
If L-7 = benefic graha, spouse is gainful, friendly, creative, and identifies
strongly with children from the marriage. Spouse will be involved in positive
amusements such as romantic weekends with one,
creating and working with children, and writing of inspirational speeches,

poetry and fine literature.

poetry and fine literature.
Even if L-7 = malefic, this graha will be fruitful in bhava-5.
Creates at least one child, at least some profits, and generates a community of
associations around the marriage.
If malefic, spouse will be involved in more negative (nevertheless interesting)
amusements such as gambling,
rough political contests, and lower forms of theatre.
Spousal intelligence is strong, but if L-7 = malefic, the creative path may have
vulgar qualities.
If L-7 = Kuja there can be numerous miscarriages/abortions although the
marriage is socially well networked and overall gainful.
If L-7 = Shani = a long delay and/or heavy responsibilities regarding children
although the marriage is socially well networked
and respected in the community.
IIf L-7 = yuti Rahu, the marriage and its " fruits" including children and
marketplace gainfulness
become complicated by boundary-challenging influence of foreign or exotic
When L-7 = Mangala-5, expect repeating patterns of marital disagreement
about pregnancies and child-raising.
Despite the otherwise favorable implications of L-7 in the profitable 11th from
this single placement may contribute significantly to conditions of permanent
marital separation.
The surprising L-7 Mangala in 5 often will catch the couple off guard.
Any children born into the union will however succeed economically (11) and
The children are friendly, gainful, and well-connected.

L-7 in Bhava 6
Argumentative Method of Crafting Agreements
L-7 =marriage partnership promise vow balance diplomacy brokerage
agreement union pairing yoke in Bhava 6 =
disagreement, accusation, litigation, illness, addiction, servitude, poverty,
debt, drugs, physicians,
ministries of service to the less fortunate
Inauspicious and loss-causing position + L-7 in 12th-from-7th
L-7 in 6 is generally quite inauspicious for easy agreement in marriage.
Contractual agreements tend to erode when L-7 migrates into the dissolving,
disagreeable, accusing 12th-from-7th
particularly challenging placements when L-7 = natural malefic, for lagna =
Vrishabha, Karkata, Simha, or Thula
Spouse builds one 's capacity for argumentation. Dealing with chronic
underlying distrust is the most important result of marriage.
Loss of marital agreement is part of the experience.
Divorce is not necessarily required, but some expression of loss of agreement
such as cessation of sexual congress or
an adversarial extramarital interest, is usually seen in the unfolding of this
If L-7 is dignified, this position can grant a good career for the spouse in one
of the professions that manages social conflict = professional military,
attorney, physician, urban planner, social worker, high-conflict negotiator etc.
Typically the native with L-7 in 6 attracts partners both personal and
professional who endure considerable
inner conflict within the spouse's own personality.
Even when L-7 in bhava-6 helps the native's own profession,

it will reduce the scope of agreement within the marriage or business

it will reduce the scope of agreement within the marriage or business
Illness of the partner or shared living in rough conditions may be easier to
since physical stress can redirect the focus of imbalance away from the
marriage itself and onto the struggle for survival.
Also, since Shani-6 and Mangala-6 can both produce some degree of positive
outcome in rogasthana,
L-7 Shani in 6 and L-7 Mangala in 6 are potentially favorable for partnership in
conditions of poverty, war, disease,
false accusations, toxic pollution, servitude, and all of the other miseries of
Psychological withdrawal + withholding of full participation in marriage-
along with lack of initiative (Shani, scarcity) to make needed changes.
Exhaustion, loss of identity within human partnerships.
Chronic resistance to normal marital negotiations, therapeutic spousal dialog,
or decisive legal action.
Generally an angle of "do nothing" marital discontent. Particularly when L-7 in
6 = Shani, one may feel unable to act in either a positive or negative
direction; tends to subsist in a drained 12th-from low-energy state.
Most of the marriage energy goes into the realm of the criticizing and accusing
(6) imagination (6 = 12th-from-7th).
However when L-7 in 6 = a more active graha
L-7 in the satkona = the union is drained, exhausted, depleted causing loss of
vitality in the core trust.
Partner = "stuck" in their own problems (6).
Typically, the spouse self-medicates. Substance addictions and depression in
the first spouse-partner.
Chronic deterioration of agreements that may be achieved at times between
spouses and partners.
If a malefic + L-7 in 12th-from-swakshetra may temporarily bond the couple
over "problem-solving" projects such as paying down debt, treating an illness
or the marriage may serve as a temporary proof that one really can establish a
balanced relationship.
Typically the spouse (agent L-7) suffers from some species of mental, social,
or physical illness, including addictions,
criminal behaviors, chronic self-doubt, or chemical imbalance of the
Nature of the spousal illness is determined by the graha.
The spousal illness may be well compensated if other graha are well positioned
but eventually the interior conflict experienced by one will motivate a
dissolution of the marriage contract, i.e., divorce.
If a benefic, joint denial and overcompensation leading to infidelity,
indebtedness, and shame.
Because bhava-6 is Budha's house of argument and criticism, one can expect
to receive abundant criticism for one's Alliance-building and partnering actions
One's efforts to create contractual agreement and one's choice of partner
complained about to the point where the partner may be scandalized.

Karma: +4/-0 I have 7th lord in 5th exalted by sign, m not sure of the degree. M not married
yet. so the married young part does not apply to me.
I have no interest in having and raising kids. so the few kids part is no
I most probably, if I choose to wed, choose my own mate. no arranged
marriages in my family even though I'm Indian. So I can relate to that part

Don't understand the part of 7th lord = yuti rahu. what does that mean? how
do we know the 7th lord is rahu?

So this 7th lord placement is applicable to D-1 chart only? can we use it for D-
7. Look at D-7 and see where the 7th lord in D-7 is going as well? I was
thinking can we look at D-9 chart, see where the 9th lord of the D-9 chart is

Are we allowed to take the 7th lord in the D-1 chart and see where it is placed
in the D-7 ?

M not sure how divisional charts are read. I have many questions pertaining to
divisional charts.

"Yuti" means/=`s "with".

So L-7 "yuti" Rahu here means Lord of the 7th 'with' Rahu in the 5th house.
Good call Stephanie! Yes take any house Lord and look at where it goes in all
the vargas.
That is one way of getting some good info to consider

For the 7th Lord/7th Bhava I would stick with the D-7 Chart with Jupiter as the
primary karaka of the D-7.

Let us say Venus is the 7th Lord in the 5th "yuti" Ketu.
When you look at Venus in the D-7 [Remember] Ketu and Venus still influence
each other.
What is the relationship of Venus to 1.) The 7th House/Lord as primary house
and 2.) Jupiter as primary karaka of the D-7?
3.) What Sign/Lord rules the 1st and 10th and what planets occupy the 1st
and 10th in the D-7?
These planets will serve to activate the D-7 Varga Chart.
Venus`s relationship with these Three main factors should give some good

Ryan has a Divisional Class that helps make things simple and straight
They are really not so hard after some practice and faith in yourself.
Remember that they do not over-ride the promise of the Birth Chart!
It will take some time to wrap our brains around the divisional charts granted.
I sure like to use the vargas more than to just flip the chart to the house

L-7 in Bhava 7
Negotiating Method of Crafting Agreements
L-7 =marriage partnership promise vow balance diplomacy brokerage
agreement union pairing yoke in Bhava-7
Yuvati-pathi = in swakshetra.
Auspicious socially, yet the partner(s) may wield an overwhelming influence in
one's life.
Spouse builds one 's capacity for making alliances.
Contract-making is the most important result of marriage.
Gender qualities and one's ability to attract the relationship interest of others
may be intensely self-defining for one .
Constant bargaining and deal-making may consume the vitality of both
partners, leaving little energy for more harmonious resting in the existing
The partner has such a vivid personality that one 's psychological growth into
maturity may be stunted.
If L-7 Shukra in 7, karako bhavo nashto produces "Too much partner."
If L-7 = Shani in 7, dig-bala grants longevity of the marriage contract. Divorce
is obtained only if other graha occupy 7.
L-7 = Shani in 7 guarantees neither sexual loyalty nor happiness (although
other factors such as Shukra may support pleasures and wealth) but the legal
contract itself endures.
The first life-partner = a vivid, dominating personality according to the nature
of the L-7.
The social-contractual requirement to accommodate one's partner's interests
and style can dominate one's agreement-crafting
and social balancing process.
L-7 = Mangala in 7 a vigorously negotiating partner.
Life-partner = in charge of the couple's social life; one's spouse represents the
couple in public.
One will permit this spouse to control the public image of the marriage, even if
that image is intimately inaccurate.
Typically L-7 in 7 = authentically engaged in the sexual aspect of marriage as
well as other interactive and negotiating behaviors of relationship.
The spouse is welcoming when L-7 = benefic.
If L-7 = Shukra, yuvati bhava will = Vrishabha or Thula.
The partner's role in one's life = provider and procurer of capital wealth and
However with Shukra as L-7 in bhava-7, karako bhavo nashto = too much
bargaining for pleasure or for wealth = may apply.
If L-7 = Budha, a friendly, chatty, generally tolerant partner who appreciates
the diversity of human sexual behaviors.
Partners may remain married for a long time without an exclusivity
Lord of 7th occupies 7th = Spouse
has a self-directed personality.
Spouse may be an athlete, fashion model, dancer, hunter, military or one who
is strongly identified with the physical body.
Alternatively, the spouse may be a broker, advocate, attorney, match-maker
Alternatively, the spouse may be a broker, advocate, attorney, match-maker
or deal-maker who handles the negotiation of values and worth in a highly
energized (1) yet somewhat primitive (1) style.
The behavioral qualities depend on the graha and any companions to the
graha, incoming drishti etc.

L-7 in Bhava 8
Hidden Method of Crafting Agreements
L-7 = marriage partnership promise vow balance diplomacy brokerage
agreement union pairing yoke in Bhava-8
Any graha which is born into randhra bhava =
becomes subject to the fast spinning of the cycle [8] of self-destruction and
rebirth [8].
The speed of change-of-form is often terrifying. Matters of the houses ruled by
graha in 8 are controlled by this fast-turning, recycling, identity-destroying
and regenerating hidden life force [8].
Effects of graha in 8 are frightening, secretive, occult, mysterious, hidden,
shocking magical, rejuvenating and changing-changing.
Challenging placement for maintenance of conventional equity-ensuring
marriage vows.
Exclusivity promises (7) may undergo many iterations [8] of change;
sometimes shocking and sudden change [8].
Confidential [8] relationships [8].
Often a component of personalities with "tantrik" agenda where hidden, taboo,
or covert sexual relationships may be generated in a personality-
transformative context:
Terms of agreement tend to be covered or secret. Incomplete disclosure.
Marriage is better understood as transformative process, not fixed value or
static content.
Business partnerships and advising-counseling relationships are similarly
disposed toward non-transparency (occult) and non-accountability (Mangala
the natural lord of 8 = enemy of Budha the Accountant).
If Shani = L-7 in 8 = conventionally lawful (Shani) terms and arrangements
consistently presented to the public (Shani) and dignity is upheld.
Typically L-7 in 8 = hidden alliances but these are successfully contained
(Shani) in ways that do not break the contract.
If Shukra = L-7 in 8 =
Diplomacy and graciousness characterize the situation despite variance from
the conventional expectations
If Mangala = L-7 in 8 =
Inauspicious for transparency of word and deed in alliance partnership.
Terms of contract enter the Hidden zone.
Negotiations and deals conducted in secret.
Agreements subjects to forced-changes
L-7 in 2nd-from-swakshetra.
Spouse = agent of fast-spinning cycle of self-destruction and rebirth.
First marriage is generally short-lived, although the public may not know this
because matters of bhava-8 are hidden.
Sudden, catastrophic and potentially healing transformation of one 's identity
= the most important result of marriage.
It is an upsetting placement which must be handled from a therapeutic
L-7 in bhava-8 of sudden, forced changes =
notoriously difficult for the expected stability and non-changing pillar-of-
society relationship 10th-from-10th = marriage.
One may experience infidelity to the marriage contract.

The mate in this lifetime has a rather mysterious motivation for joining the
The mate in this lifetime has a rather mysterious motivation for joining the
The spouse becomes a major catalyst for forced change in one 's self-
consciousness awareness.
The yoga is not a prediction of infidelity per se but rather a signal that the
mate has agency to enforce the transformation of the native's consciousness
leading to a new identity for the native.
The transformation may be enforced delicately or roughly according to the
nature of the graha which is L-7 mate in 6 identity-change.
The spouse may be a tantrik priest, a therapeutic healer, a surgeon or
psychiatrist, a covert operator, or a handler of dangerous and confidential
If the graha is very difficult the spouse may be a person who is severely
emotionally closed due to trauma, and resistant to adult intimacy.
L-7 in bhava-8 indicates that the spouse is prone to martyrdom, perhaps a
great saint, committed to sacrifice, and often wishing to transform the basic
instinctual human sexuality of bhava-7 into something 'higher' via religious
abstinence or other sacrificial transformation. Thus the spouse is often not
sexually available.
Although divorce is not required and in fact the spouse is often committed to
religious beliefs which proscribe divorce, one feels effectively divorced or more
accurately widowed. One rather predictably turns to other companionship.
Conventional society expects that spouses should support and stabilize each
other's social identities.
However, when L-7 occupies bhava-8, the spouse does not accept one's
current identity,
and in fact sets out to destroy it so that one can be pushed forward to a higher
destiny or otherwise 'improved'.
When in bhava-8 + L-7 the agreement-maker is forced to express its balance-
seeking behavior in context of sudden, often catastrophic, changes. In this
psychic environment, marriage finds no stable foundation.
Rarely can the couple remain faithful nor even share the same house.
However, all is not lost. If L-7 is a favorable graha the spouses may greatly
respect each other for their respective strengths and personal integrity. They
may continue to help and support each other in non-intimate ways.
Tantrik knowledge is obtained. Spiritual benefits arise.
The general public need not know the intimate details of this marriage, since
bhava-8 is the house of hidden things.
The external appearance of the marriage may mask an interior reality of
virtual widowhood.
Inter-personally L-7 in bhava-8 is a difficult placement for marriage.
Yet if the graha is good, the external appearances, material and moral
support, and other non-intimate components of marriage may be successful.

Religious development is the most important result of marriage.
The spouse is an agent of good fortune in ways dictated by the character of
the graha.

Spouse functions as one's moral adviser and guru.

Spouse functions as one's moral adviser and guru.
The relationship is naturally somewhat sibling-like, with a competitive an
affectionately adversarial under-layer.
The spouses are comfortable with each other as typically this angle attracts
those with a similar mentality.
However a mental basis is not quite enough to sustain a lifelong engagement
and one may outgrow such a first marriage especially if the mind is very
Spouse is morally supportive, and organized in matters of social networking
through the sahanga of professional, religious or scholarly fellowship.
Spouse is often a fellow professional, respected practitioner in an allied field,
or highly ranked in one's own spiritual or artistic lineage.
This position of L-7 in 3rd-from-swakshetra does not prevent divorce, but after
divorce the couple may remain sibling-type friends, with many amicable
connections in common.

result of marriage.

partner, from diplomacy, balancing, equity, parity, weights and values.
Maximum results obtained via involvement of Budha.

Spouse and allies are the agents who builds one's network of associations.
Generally a creative and gainful placement for marriage and adds to children
and the poetic "romance" of marriage L-7 in 5th-from swakshetra.
Extension of economic network via socially approved contractual agreements =
the most important result of marriage.
Partners = friendly, creative, and speculative, and gainful according to the
character of the graha that is L-7.

Spouse functions like an elder sibling or cousin = friendly, gainful, materially

Spouse functions like an elder sibling or cousin = friendly, gainful, materially
goal-oriented, and socially linking.
In cultures where cousin-marriage is supported, the spouse may literally be a
mentor-level of cousin =
slightly elder or more experienced but favorably inclined to help one achieve
one's goals.
While supporting one 's goal achievement the spouse has independent
charisma (5).
Presuming L-7 is well-disposed, partner = successfully networked into a
market of associations.
The life-partner may be highly social, creating a large network for the couple
to enjoy.
Spouse is often associated with large assemblies of profit-makers and the
marriage increases one 's own gainfulness according to the strength of L-7 by
rashi, drishti and lordship.
Spouse may be politically active, enjoy fund-raising for community
development, or just really like going to parties.
Spouse is speculative, likes taking risks, enjoys celebrity and fame.
If the graha is intelligent and productive this is a literary angle where both the
spouse and one enjoy writing and reading in literary culture.

L-7 in Bhava 12
Imaginative Method of Crafting Agreements
L-7 = Bhava-12 = private liaisons, back-room deals, imagination, residence in
distant lands, monastery, sanctuary, research, retreat.
Inauspicious and unrealistic position = L-7 in 6th-from-swakshetra.
Spouse (7) builds the sanctuary (12). Private seclusion is the most important
result of marriage.
Marriage difficulties due to spouse's need for privacy.
L-7 in adversarial 6th-from-7th = karaka for multiple marriages due to the
'adversarial paradigm' for marriage in general.
Where divorce is not permitted for political or cultural reasons, extramarital
adventure may be expected.
Partner = emotionally or physically withdrawn, or spouse takes long residence
in a distant setting.
Partner may be invisible, in seclusion, or frequently hospitalized.
However, the spouse may also contribute positive support to one 's
clairsentient, intuitive, meditational and sanctuary-sustaining activities.
If one is involved in clandestine or otherwise private, enclosed projects, or
perhaps campaigns in foreign lands.
The spouse serves as contributing agent to further those projects.
One of the sources of marital conflict is that the mate-partner often hails from
a distant land.
The mate feels 'invisible' in the marriage and may feel that either enflaming
(Mangala) or denying (Shani) the bedroom pleasures is a useful expression of
discord within the union.
Often the (first) spouse is a background figure whose identity is not integral to
one 's self-image, and whose behavior is not well understood by oneself.
Subsequent spouses may be more flamboyant depending upon graha yuti
Shukra and character of bhava-2.
Life-partner or business partner may hail from a foreign land or have been
raised in a culture whose values are foreign to one's home culture.
Spouse-1 may be chronically ill, have a private alternative sexual life, or have
other ways of closing off him/her self from the marriage, into a private
enclosure either mental or physical or both.
First spouse may have certain vulgar characteristics, hide in illness, or have a
passive-aggressive personality (or all of the above).
Private imagination
Within the imagination, one may construct an interpretive story regarding
one's spouse-partner.
This story fills in the missing details about the spouse's true motives and what
the spouse is actually doing.
Yet this is a story drawing from one 's own subconscious childhood memories
and not necessarily an accurate account of the spouses actual behavior or
One blessed with dramatic talent can put oneself into the theatrical role being
deeply in love and successfully act out that role in public life.
This native will appear to be touching and gazing adoringly at their partner.
It is possible to use this imaginative projection as substitute for authentic
interpersonal understanding, and those with dramatic training who are living in
the limelight of public life frequently do.
Typically there was unresolved conflict between the spouse's parents.
This embedded memory repeats continuously in one 's subconscious mind.
Thus one carries uninterrupted childhood expectation of adversarial attack
from the partner into marriage(s).
Therapy and forgiveness practice can be beneficial = bring this subconscious
negative expectation up to the surface of consciousness; behavioral changes
can be applied after that to reduce the habitual reactiveness.
Formal marriage is less desirable for this native. If multiple marriages have
failed it is probably not a good idea to just keep getting remarried - at least
until the underlying fears have been revealed.
The bulk of the karma is paid off with the first marriage, but the pattern of
expectation-of-conflict-and-attack will persist in shadow form throughout
subsequent marriages, if it is not discussed and corrected in therapy.
Public image of the marriage may be rather glamorous, esp. if L-5 is strong;
because when L-7 occupies bhava-12, the Arudha lagna of marriage becomes
bhava-5, the house of celebrity and fame.
However the interior reality is that one carries a persistent subconscious
expectation that the spouse is an enemy.
Marital conflict often addressed by the spouse's taking long journeys,
sequestering in ashram or hospital, or seeking private alternative liaisons.
Problems with the spouse eventually cause a loss of positive social identity for
one, during the periods of L-7.
