Questions regarding marriage is most frequent in astrology consultations and qualities of the spouse, both physical & mental are most exciting & interesting to know beforehand.
Let’s explore it through basic fundamental concepts of astrology.
In Vedic Astrology each zodiac & planets have their own characteristic for example Pisces is a dual sign, last of the moksha trine, soft speech, highly imaginative, good looking, short stature, prominent nose, round shoulder etc
Same way all planets and zodiacs have a long list of a characteristic which is unique to them and these characteristics gets imparted to humans based on their Planetary positions.
As per Vedic Astrology, your 7th house and its lord decide the basic results pertaining to marriage and spouse, although Aspects, Navamsha, D-60, Upapada Lagna, Nakshatra also have a say in the final result.
For looks & mental setup of spouse first, we need to see the zodiac which rules over 7th house.
Now the basic characteristic of that Zodiac will be present in your spouse, for example, if Aries sign rules over the 7th house then the spouse will be Enterprising, Incisive, Spontaneous, Daring, Active, Courageous and Energetic, Aries are the proverbial infants, guileless and optimistic to the fault. However, they also are impatient, impetuous, vain, proud and egoistic. They may also be liable to come across as selfish, jealous, coarse, ruthless and violent. Now as we know each zodiac have positive and negative qualities and here if zodiac lord of 7th house is auspiciously placed than positive qualities of that zodiac will be more pronounced in the spouse.
These Yoga in astrology have a good contribution in getting a good spouse.
If the 7th lord is auspiciously placed in Fiery signs viz Aries, Leo, Sagittarius; then the spouse will be tall, good looking and will have a caring attitude towards you. Fire sign rules over 1st,5th,9th house (trines) in kaalpurush zodiacs & are the significator of Dharma. Well-placed 7th lord in Fiery signs will give a spouse with a balanced approach towards life, the same time they will have high moral values. Religion is more important for them then philosophy & can be a hard taskmaster when it comes to following their religion practice. They make good parents and wants their kids to follows their religion. Sometimes they can push their kids to make them excel over others. They are good in finance management and don’t spend on unnecessary things. They know where to stop while spending money & always have enough funds for emergencies.
Same way if 7th lord is posted in Air signs Gemini, Libra, Aquarius then the spouse will be tall, good looking, dynamic, sharp & will have a positive but materialistic approach towards life. Here spouse will be very social & outgoing and they love to be around many people. Because of their intelligence, they are expert in managing time between work & family. They make excellent parents especially considering the present era. They encourage their kids for sports & studies equally and want then to do good in their own life. They are good in finance management and always have money for emergencies. They love to spend on family outgoings.
In earth signs Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn spouse will be medium tall in height, average looking & will have a calculative approach towards life & relationship. They make an excellent bread winner & give more time towards work. Most of the times marriage for them is a contract between two individuals & they can be cruel towards you due to their highly practical approach. They can be jealous of their relatives and neighbors. They make good parents but are strict when it comes to studies of their children. They want their kids to follow the norms laid by the society, doesn’t matter if its wrong or not good for the overall development of their own children’s. They are very aware of what they are spending for and have a tendency to hoard money. Their finance management is good for themselves but can irritate their better half or kids by being a miser sometimes.
In water signs Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces spouse might be of medium height, soft, speech, romantic, dreamy, imaginative & will have a unique philosophical approach towards life & relationship. Though their impractical approach towards life & social duties can disturb their relationships with the spouse. If you’re dominated by Earth signs then clashes are bound to happen. They are caring in relationships and can easily understand your needs. They make good parents and impart their knowledge to their kids. They don’t push their kids and allow them to follow their own dreams. They are not good in managing finance and have a tendency of spending over their limits.Usually, they will never save enough funds for emergencies.
There is Yoga like Manglik Yoga which can affect marriage but it should not be applied blindly.
Our classic text has given subtle hints regarding the status of the spouse.
Compare the strength of 1st and 7th house. 1st house represents you and 7th lord denotes your spouse. If the 7th lord is powerful then 1st house lord then the spouse will be of higher status. Also, the presence of rajyoga in navamsa also results in the spouse from the rich background.
Following rules should be checked in order to check if you will get a rich spouse.
Check Rajyoga and Dhanyoga in your navamsa, if strong Rajyoga and Dhanyog are present in your navamsa then your spouse will be rich.
In general words, Rajyoga takes formation by the association of 1st,4th, 5th, 7th, 9th and 10th houses and their lords.
Note: the relation between 9th and 10th house is the best Rajyoga.
Relation between 5th and 10th is also strong but not as strong as 9th and 10th house lords combination.
For example, in your navamsa, there might be the relation between 4th house and 9th house or between 7th house and 9th house. This will be called as a Rajyoga in navamsa. If you have these present in your chart it means that you have Raj
If such association exists in your chart, it means that you have Rajyoga in your navamsa. Rajyoga is not limited to these house relation only, there are some complex rajyoga which take place with certain planetary alignments like Vishnu Yoga etc.
I have done a separate series on these Special Rajyoga, which you can follow and apply on your horoscope and navamsha.
If these Rajyoga is present in navamsha then your spouse will definitely be from a good status and will hold a good position in life.
Similarly relation between 2nd and 11th house lord with 1st,5th and 9th creates dhanyog in a horoscope and also check these in your navamsa too.
Also, placement of 7th lord in upachaya(growth) house is also an indicator of the spouse with a heavy pocket or heavier than yours.
For working spouse, check in your birth chart if 7th house is making a connection with 2nd, 10th or 11th.
Not so long ago working spouse was not common in India but with modern needs of society, we can see women working in many fields and earning better than their spouses.
Sometimes it might happen that things contradict in D-1 and D-9. It means your birth chart might show working spouse but in D-9 combinations are not supportive for same. In such cases, it indicates that spouse will have a job but with lower or medium salary which is applicable to 90% of our Indian population.
Now, what if D-1 does not show working spouse but D-9 holds clues for same. Then in such cases spouse will have a job but good progress will come slowly with time.
If combination exists in both D-1 and D-9 then it indicates a spouse with a good earning profession.
Though the color of human doesn’t matter, what matters most is good values and behavior in a relationship. Now Color of the spouse is a big stigma in some countries and we don’t need to go far to see that. This color factor is always a cause of stress to our ladies of India. No surprise tv commercial are full with whitening creams and the matrimonial section of the newspaper are quite amusing while giving a description of brides.Though such compulsion is not applicable to men unless salary criteria are up to mark.
In order to find the color of spouse female should check their Jupiter placement and males should analysis their Venus placement. Benefic influence of Moon and placement of Venus or Jupiter in the sign of Taurus, Cancer, Libra and to some extent Pisces gives a spouse with a fair complexion.
The Same concept should be applied to the seventh house and its lord also, the strongest of the seventh house, seventh lord and venus will decide the complexion of the spouse.
Influence of Saturn, Rahu or Ketu over them results in the average looking spouse.
Love and Care in any relation are seen through karaka of that relation. For example, Sun is karaka for father, if weak or afflicted it results into bad relation with father or miscommunication between them.
Similarly, if you want to know whether your spouse will be loving or caring then check following parameters.
1. Venus is karaka of wife and Jupiter is for Husband, when well placed and under auspicious connection, especially by 1st, 4th, 5th, 7th and 9th house lords, then your spouse will take care of your needs and there will be mutual love and care.
2. Check the condition of your 7th house because it rules over marriage and related affairs. 7th house should ideally be free from the malefic influence of 6th,8th, and 12th lord. Especially from the 6th lord influence of 6th house lord influence can make spouse cruel in nature, same holds true for malefic like Mars and Ketu when they afflict your 7th house or its lord.

3. Navamsha should also be checked since it’s a chart which works in micro level and is used to delineate marriage affairs.
Repeat step no 1 and 2 in navamsa also.
If 60% of above factors comes positive then your spouse will take good care of you.
For examples, we can look into Barack Obama’s astrology horoscope to see the physical appearance of his spouse, (Michelle Obama).
In Barack Obama’s horoscope, 7th lord is ruled by the sign of Aries, which is ruled by the planet Mars.
Both Aries sign and planet Mars have fire tatwa in them. As mentioned in above paragraph, fire signs in 7th house give a tall spouse. It’s lord planet Mars is also placed in a fire sign of Leo.This clearly shows Michelle Obama is tall and is blessed with an appealing and a commanding personality.
Now, we have to consider other planetary effects on the 7th house or its lord. Here in Obama horoscopes, 7th lord mars are making a union with planet Rahu and Rahu have a planetary association with his 7th house also.Rahu is an Airy planet and gives the tall appearance, also Rahu makes teeth/jaw as a prominent feature on the face. Michelle Obama has a prominent jaw which is due to Rahu aspect on 7th house of Barack Obama. If this Rahu was under planetary affliction than it would have given her gaps in her teeth.
Second example here is of Bill Clinton, his wife Hillary Clinton is one of the most powerful person on whole earth. This example can be used for Status of the spouse also.
In Bill Clinton horoscope, Pisces rules over 7th house and Jupiter rules over Pisces. Pisces is a dual sign whereas Jupiter is fiery in nature. Hillary Clinton has medium, round shoulder and plump appearance to some extent.
It’s all due to Pisces sign in 7th house of Bill Clinton horoscope.It’s lord Jupiter is in Libra sign which gives good looks to her. Now we have to consider the aspect of Mars and Venus over Bill Clinton’s 7th house also. Both Mars and Venus are in Virgo sign where Venus gets debilitated and Mars also don’t feel good in Virgo.
This combination made Bill Clinton image very controversial and affected their marriage too. Though Mars and Venus aspect over 7th of Bill Clinton made her successful, courageous and lucky. You can see from his horoscope how Hilary was successful in her life.
The third example which we can look belongs to Shahrukh Khan.In his horoscope 7th lord, Saturn is placed in own in the 7th house. Yogakaraka Mars aspect 7th house from 4th house, 7th house is also aspected by Jupiter from 11th house.
All these indicate a beautiful dusky spouse. An auspicious aspect of Mars & Jupiter makes her marriage very successful, despite all the odds in beginning of their love affair.
MUTUAL ATTRACTION BETWEEN HUSBAND AND WIFE
The basic foundation of marriage is the mutual attraction between couples, without mutual attraction, nothing can progress in a marriage.
Following parameters needs to be checked for mutual attraction between couples.
1. The further the ascendant is from each other more will be the attraction. That is why in general terms people say that Taurus natives are most compatible for Scorpio natives.
2. Venus is sex desire for a male whereas Mars do the same for females. In this rules, Mars of a female should be conjunct with or aspect the Venus of males horoscope. Same way, Venus of the boy should be conjunct with or aspects Mars of female.
Even when one relation is present, it is good. If it repeats in navamsha also, it is best.
If above rule is applicable in the natal chart and absent in navamsha, then the mutual attraction fades with time.
If it is absent in natal chart but is present in navamsha then the mutual attraction develops with time.
3.When such relation of Mars or Venus is established with Sun or Moon of the horoscope, it gives a strong attachment where couples enjoy a good time together with lots of respect for each other.
4.When Sun of one partner is making a relationship with Moon of another partner, or they are in mutual trine to each other, then there will be deep friendship after marriage. Mutual placement in 6th,8th and 12th house is not supportive in this regard.
5.This rule is very important, the signs occupied by the ascendant lord, the moon, and sun of partners, if afflicted in the chart of the partner then it brings problems in married life. The problem will be physical if the ascendant sign is afflicted. Spiritual when the sign of Sun is afflicted and mental when the sign of Moon is afflicted.
