Marriage compatability

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 cases:
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 planets.
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 afflictions.

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 Mars.
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 situated.
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 Charya’s, 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 benefics.
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.

Astrological Predictions on Global Economy

Global crisis is the main concern which has shaken the economy of the entire world not only the developed countries but also developing countries. This has been continuing since two years, especially from past year where its effect has peaked. Lot of thoughts is being lingering in the mind of common man. Couple of them is; where is the end to this crisis? Will it come out of this or not? Is there any hope of revival from this crisis in near future or not?
Let us analyze astrologically; when will we come out of this? What planets are responsible for this crisis?
In Zodiac there are four major planets, whose movement from one house to another house is longer. Saturn stays in a house nearly 2-1/2 years, Rahu and Kethu stays for 1-1/2 years each, and Jupiter stays for one year. Other planets will stay generally for about a month or two. The only fast moving planet is moon.
Saturn entered in LEO on 15th July 2007; here Saturn is in the house of Sun (LEO) who is bitter enemy to Saturn. Staying in that house means associating himself in enemy’s camp but he is also associated with Kethu which is not at all beneficial and comfortable position. Saturn will create havoc financially and with that reason World economy started showing the signs of crisis. Actually signs of crisis started to show from 15th July 2007 onwards. It has slowly picked up the trend and reached its peak from 9th December 2008. This is due to the fact that Jupiter entered the Saturn’s house of Capricorn on that day. For Jupiter entering Saturn’s house means entering into a enemy’s house as both of them are enemy’s and Jupiter also in debilitation. Besides this, Jupiter has joined with Rahu who is malefic planet. Simultaneously Kethu has been relieved from Saturn and moved back into the house of Cancer. Due to this, Jupiter had been weakened Saturn and his malefic power is intensified. With this the whole global economy has been shattered and created fear. This has continued until 1st May 2009. On this day Jupiter entered Aquarius getting relieved from his debilitation and from Rahu. This Aquarius is also Saturn’s moolatrikona house which is also Jupiter’s enemy’s house. In this scenario Jupiter is also opposition to Saturn which is also adverse. With this Jupiter did not gain much strength and the economy did not pick up that well but there is slight sigh of relief from recession, which is very negligible. From 15th June 2009 Jupiter will be in retrogression and will go back to the house of Capricorn on 30th July 2009 and will join with Rahu. From that day onwards we will see the effects of recession again and it will continue till 9th September 2009. Saturn completes his stay of 2-1/2 years in Leo and will enter into Mercury’s house of Virgo on 9th September 2009. As Mercury is the friend of Saturn and he is staying in his friend’s house and as a result of which he will start giving good results. The actual relief from recession starts from 9th September 2009 onwards. Rahu will be moving back to Sagittarius from Capricorn from 19th November 2009 relieving Jupiter from his clutches. At the same time, Kathu will go back to Gemini from 19th November 2009 making way to the recovery path from recession. Jupiter who is in the debilitation in the house of Capricorn will be finally relieved and will enter into the house of Aquarius on 19th December 2009. Finally we will be able to see signs of improvement from recession and the global economy will pick up strength fully and gives financial strength.
Lastly after analyzing the movements of these planets who are responsible for recession we can hope best results from 19th December 2009 and the economy will be in recover mood and we will be able to come out of recession gradually.
The above observations are purely my personal opinion and prediction only.
