What is a Good Marriage in Vedic Astrology?
Marriage is one of the most important aspects of life for most people, and of course, it involves more than just a physical union between two people. Instead, a marriage involves deep feelings of caring for each other, couples sharing responsibilities, and strong emotional attachment.
By the very laws of nature, men and women are bound to be united, so to a great extent, the concept of marriage as we know it merely reflects what nature commands.
As the centuries have come and gone, our ancestors have provided a vast amount of knowledge and advice for those entering into marriage, and interestingly enough, much of that advice is based on marriage astrology.
Practically every race, culture, and creed on the planet acknowledges that the planets can and do influence our lives in one way or another, including relationships and marriage.
On this page, I will share with you a few tips that you can use to read the 7th house of a chart, which provides an insight into marriage and the resultant happiness it should bring for a couple.
In order to avoid any confusion, however, I’m going to separate the tips into two categories – specifically for men and women.
Marriage Astrology Tips for Males
In the following instances, there's a strong possibility of loss of wife or progeny:
- When the Lord of the 7th house is present in the 5th house, or when the Lord of the 5th or 8th house is present in the 7th house;
- Venus in Scorpio, which is the 7th house; Mercury in Taurus identical with the 7th and Jupiter in the 7th in depression;
- A weak Moon in the 5th and malefic in the 1st, 7th, and 12th houses indicate wifeless and childless.
- If the Sun and Rahu are in the 7th house, this indicates a possible loss of wealth due to a relationship with a woman.
In marriage astrology, the combinations which follow below tend to yield favorable results:
- If the Lord of the 8th house is in the centre, owned by a benefic aspect, it indicates a wife is chaste, dutiful and comes from a noble family.
- If Cancer is in the 7th house, occupied by Mars and Saturn, it indicates a wife will be beautiful and chaste. Furthermore, a man can expect to have an excellent wife if the Lord of his house is conjoined with the Lord of the ascendant.
- When the Lord of the ascendant is present in the 7th house, along with a benefic, it indicates a wife from a good family.
- The Moon, if occupying the 1st or 7th house within her own or exaltation sign and aspected by a benefic or the 7th house failing in a benefic sign, tends to indicate a virtuous wife.
- If the 7th house, its Lord, and Venus are all in even signs and bright and strong, it would indicate an outstanding wife.
However, one should bear in mind that observations of the 7th house often fail because people don’t consider other houses when making matchmaking predictions in marriage astrology.
If an astrologer has the necessary experience, he or she will always consider the 4th house, which relates to the mind, and the 9th house, which relates to fortune. The experienced astrologer also focuses on the second house because of its connection to family issues.
Generally speaking, the rules regarding the 7th house are the same for both men and women, but even so, some points are unique to female charts. Many astrologers agree that this most likely has to do with the psychological makeup of the women. Her auspiciousness is read from looking at the 8th house, beauty from the 9th house, husbands and attractiveness from the 7th. A woman’s associations and her chastity are shown in the 4th house.
Marriage Astrology Tips for Females
When you study a woman’s horoscope, you can be quite certain about the type of man she will one day marry.
Here are a few marriage astrology tips for females:
If there is no strength or planets in the 7th house, and instead, it’s occupied by malefics rather than benefics, a woman will almost certainly end up with a terrible man as her husband.
Should the 7th house be occupied by Mercury and Saturn or owned by either, the husband will likely be impotent.
If the 7th house is a moveable sign, and its Lord is in a moveable sign, her husband will rarely be at home.
If the Sun or Moon are present in their own sign, the husband will most likely be gentle regarding his sexual activities.
If it were Mars, the husband would be poor and adulterous.
If the Lord is present in the 9th house, and Jupiter is in the 6th, 8th, or 12th house, it’s unlikely that the husband will live a long life.
The following combinations can also indicate the possibility of unhappiness within a marriage:
Lord of the 7th with Saturn or aspected by Mars. Moon is in the 8th house, Lord of the 7th, with Saturn or Mars as an aspect. Combination of the lords of 1 and 8 in 12 and malefic aspect of 8th. Combination of the lords of 7th and 8th in 8th with malefic aspect.
In Vedic astrology, which I personally prefer when it comes to marriage matching, astrologers will check ten agreement factors in vogue:
- Star order number of bride and groom
- Stree Dirgha
- Lord of Rasi
With that said, Nadi, which is an additional one, is usually also included. Of course, it should also be mentioned that these are all Vedic astrology terms. Once all these factors have been verified, a percentage can be obtained. A minimum of 18 points suggests that 50% will likely be good for agreement.
Now for the question which almost everybody asks – Can you change things? Unfortunately, there is no way a person can alter the planetary positions within their horoscope.
There are, however, several remedies that one can take advantage of. An astrologer with experience in marriage astrology will be able to offer you valuable guidance as far as marriage is concerned, and this guidance can be even more beneficial if you take advantage of it before getting married.
If, on the other hand, you are already married, an experienced astrologer will be able to offer advice if there are any signs of a mismatch.
Astrologers are dedicated individuals who spend a great deal of time studying to ensure marriage astrology remains accurate.
By the very laws of nature, men and women are bound to be united, so to a great extent, the concept of marriage as we know it is merely a reflection of what nature commands.
As the centuries have come and gone, out ancestors have provided a vast amount knowledge and advice for those entering into marriage, and interestingly enough, much of that advice is based on marriage astrology.
Practically every race, culture, and creed on the planet acknowledge the fact that the planets can and do influence our lives in one way or another, and that includes relationships and marriage.
