How To Make Marriage Predictions Via Astrology

Curiosity about marriage is very common, and you might be curious about your marriage and possible outcome like how will my spouse look like, how my marriage will fare, what career my spouse will be having and the list goes on and one.

Why not?

Marriage is the most important event in our lives, and much of our happiness or unhappiness stems from it.

In Vedic astrology texts, special focus is given to this area of human life.

If you want to learn and predict events related to marriage, then you are in the right place.

I have tried my best to cover all aspects of marriage and tried to make it as simple as I can.

In this article, I have mentioned various rules and aspects that help in making marriage-related predictions.

Let's dive into it.

Marriage Predictions Start From the Karakas

Most people jump right into analyzing the 7th house and Navamsha.

That is a wrong approach!!

Just like any other area of life, here we need to see the condition of the "karakas" of marriage.

For males, the karaka of marriage is Venus, and for females, it is Jupiter.

You need to see how they are placed in the horoscope. Their strong and unafflicted position in the horoscope gives the following indications about married life:

  1. Timely marriage.
  2. Marriage to a partner of their own choice.
  3. Good treatment by spouse.
  4. Good longevity of spouse.

The importance of the karaka of marriage is so much that their benefic position can really help to counter the negativity surrounding marriage.

The karaka in marriage basically indicates how your spouse will be towards you.

A woman with an exalted Jupiter will always be treated well by her husband.

A man with an exalted Venus will get a wife who will be supportive towards him.

So, paying attention to the karaka is the first thing before making any predictions about marriage.

In the following conditions, the karaka of marriage is considered good and supportive for a good married life:

  1. Their exalted position, i.e., Jupiter in Cancer and Venus in Pisces.
  2. Their position in own sign, i.e., Jupiter in Pisces or Sagittarius and Venus in Taurus or Libra.
  3. Karakas under the influence of natural benefic planets such as Moon, Mercury, Venus, or Jupiter.
  4. Karakas in trine or kendra houses.
  5. Karakas not in planetary relationship with the 6th, 8th, or 12th house lord.

Now, let's see examples where the good placement of the karaka of marriage helped the native sustain their marriage.

The first example belongs to a woman who has Jupiter in the 5th house under the aspect of an exalted Venus, who is the lord of the first house.

Example Horoscope No.1

Moon is debilitated and is with Rahu who is also in debilitation

Due to this placement of Jupiter, she gets good treatment from her spouse.

In bad times, which come due to her bad Moon and 7th house, their marriage is saved due to the benefic placement of Jupiter in her horoscope.

The other example belongs to a male whose Venus is well placed in his own sign.

Example Horoscope No.2

He have Venus in own sign in 7th house of marriage


He has a spouse of a very soft and feminine nature, and she is always standing like a rock to support him.

This has kept their marriage in good shape, despite him having Saturn and Moon in the 8th house.

As you can see from the examples, despite having a bad position of the 7th house and its lord, natives were able to resolve their marital issues through communication and seeking help.

Now, there is an interesting concept of "karaka bhavonasho," which applies to Venus and Jupiter strongly.

For men and women, Venus and Jupiter in the 7th house cause issues in marriage.

It is seen that when the karaka of marriage comes in the 7th house, it can lead to lots of issues in marriage, and even if they are exalted or in own signs, natives still have to encounter these issues.

If the 7th lord is badly placed or afflicted along with this position, then issues in marriage become very big and may not be resolved.

In my practice in astrology, I have seen this affects more to females.

If a Women have Jupiter in 7th house then she experience bad treatment from house and can go through separation also.

You can read more one impact of Jupiter in 7th house for a women.

Similarly, there are other natural karakas also that have a supportive role in keeping a marriage happy or afloat.

I will mention them wherever required.

Importance and Role Of The Moon In Marriage

In current times, when there are distractions, temptations, and stress, the role of the planet Moon becomes undeniably important in a marriage.

As the natural karaka of mind, and the 4th house, planet Moon controls peace, comfort, happiness and prosperity in a marriage.

It also have a role in Hormones and plays a vital role in reproduction ability for a women.

The Moon controls emotions, reactions, understanding, hormones, and domestic peace since it is the natural karaka of the 4th house.

A native with a bad placement of the Moon tends to have behavior issues, and we all know marriage, which is a complex intuition that requires sacrifices, adjustments, and willingness to change ourselves.

A native with a weak or afflicted position of the Moon finds it hard to maintain peace in it.

Plus, an afflicted Moon leads to bad luck when it comes to peace and harmony at home.

Many times astrologers blame other aspects of lack of domestic peace, but they ignore the planet Moon and its complex position, which is usually the culprit.

Given below are examples of horoscopes where affliction over Moon led to issues in marriage and lack of domestic peace.

Example Horoscope No.3- The example Horoscope given below shows Aries ascendant where Moon is lord of the 4th house which denotes domestic peace. It is debilitated in the 8th house and is with malefic Saturn.

The native is a Male and in his marriage there is a lack of domestic peace and happiness.

This native Moon is debilitated in the 8th house with Saturn. Moon is lord of the 4th house also.

Example Horoscope No.4- The Horoscope given below belongs to a Women and she has Moon who is also ascendant lord in her 8th house with Saturn. This placement caused a severe level of marriage issues for her. She also has mood swings and issues with her reproductive organs.

To further highlight the role of the Moon more, we can refer to the process of "horoscope matching."

Horoscope matching, which is done before marriage to see the compatibility between the boy and the girl, relies on the position of the planet Moon in both horoscopes.

So directly or indirectly, in both ways, the Moon has an impact on marriage and events in life and is a must-check throughout.

In the following positions, the Moon causes issues in married life:

1. When placed in the 8th house: Placement of the Moon in the 8th house is well known to cause issues with the mind and emotions. If further afflicted by malefics such as Rahu, Ketu, Saturn, or Mars, then it brings issues with in-laws and bad health of the spouse.

2.Sun and Moon union: Union of the Moon with the Sun indicates birth on the new moon, which comes with many issues. If this union is happening over the 1st, 6th, 7th, 8th, or 12th house, then issues in marriage happen due to the bad behavior of the native and inability to fulfill duties.

3. Union of the Moon with Saturn: Moon union with Saturn makes one insensitive by nature and brings a personality to the native, which repels people. It brings delays in marriage and brings a spouse who can be equally cold in emotions. If this union is happening over the 6th, 8th, or 12th house, then its impact becomes more severe.

4. Union Of Moon With Rahu: This union may not be bad all the time and in current ways of life can be helpful to gain luxury and wealth. But it does make one moody and can make one react badly towards the spouse. Along with the weak of bad placement of 7th house or its lord, this placement can trigger issues in marriages. Also, Moon union with Rahu in sign of Aries, Cancer, Leo, Scorpio can be very devastating for married life. For a women native it can give hormonal issues and can lead to mood swings and insecurities.

5. Union Of Moon With Mars: Technically it is a manglik yoga when seen from Chandra kundali. Mars is karaka of anger and passion.This placement makes us behave badly and gives issues such as anger and ego. It also causes lack of domestic peace and leads to frequent fights. This union is intense in sign of Aries, Cancer, Leo, Libra and Capricorn. Unless checked by a benefic like Jupiter is always affect peace at home.

Depending on the natal horoscope, there can be other ways of affliction over the Moon. You will need to see where the Moon is placed and what houses it owns before making a conclusion.

I have been mentioning about affliction all this long and you must be curious about how this happens and to know more about it refer to my article on affliction over planets.

If the Moon is placed under the following conditions, the native experiences good things in marriage:

1. Exalted Moon: Taurus is the sign of exaltation for the planet Moon. When the Moon is exalted, it brings a balance in emotions and gives one the ability to think clearly in times of crisis. Also, it brings support from luck because, as per Vedic astrology texts, having an exalted Moon is auspicious for harmony and peace in life.
2. Association Of Natural Benefics With Moon: When natural benefic planets such as Mercury, Jupiter, or Venus make a planetary association with the Moon, it strengthens the prospects of having a good married life and peace in it. It also brings patience in the native, which helps in arguments and conflicts with a spouse.

How To Analyze the 7th House To Know The Various Aspects &  Features Of A Spouse


Now we have arrived at the 7th house, which controls the most important aspects of marriage.

No marriage predictions can be made without assessing the 7th house.

When we talk about the 7th house, we include the 7th lord in it also.

The 7th house controls whom you will marry and what kind of partner will enter your life. Also, it controls the following in a marriage:

  1. Looks of the spouse.
  2. Status of the spouse.
  3. Nature of the spouse.
  4. Personality of the spouse.
  5. Communication style of the spouse.

In fact, an analysis of the 7th house can give you every piece of information about your spouse and how your marriage will turn out.

The sign rising in the 7th house controls the basic significations of the spouse, and where its lord is placed is equally important.

For example, if Aries is rising in the 7th house, then your spouse will have features and characteristics of the Aries sign.

If Mars is placed there, which is the lord of the Aries sign, it will further strengthen the qualities associated with the sign Aries.

In the same situation, the 7th house will become strong, and prospects related to the 7th house will flourish.

Note: 7th lord in its own house is the best placement for marriage and spouse-related matters.

It has the following benefits in a marriage and married life:

  • Brings a spouse with good understanding.
  • Brings an attractive spouse.
  • Education and job of the spouse are usually good.
  • Brings a spouse with good finances.
  • Gives a good married life where the native and spouse progress together by giving mutual support.

It is a must to know the general outcome when the 7th house lord is placed in different houses.

Ideally, the 7th house lord's placement in the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 9th, 10th, and 11th houses is considered good, and it brings a spouse with good physical features and with a good attitude towards the spouse.

Note: Even natural malefic in the 7th house can give good marital experiences when placed in own or mooltrikone sign.

Whereas in the other remaining houses, the 7th house lord indicates a spouse with physical and mental issues and with less physical beauty.

The worst placement of the 7th house lord is in the 6th, 8th, and the 12th house.

If you see the 7th house lord placed in these houses, then it brings a spouse who enjoys arguments, narcissistic behavior, gets sick quite often, and doesn't have a good job or education.

For example, a native with Scorpio sign in the 7th house with Mars in the 8th house will get a spouse who is non-emotional, unresponsive, cruel, narcissistic, secretive, poor hygiene, and with poor finances.

All this leads to bad experiences in marriage, and if Mars is further afflicted by malefics, the divorce or separation can happen.

After this exercise, it is important to see what happens in a marriage when different planets in the 7th house.

Any planets sitting in the 7th house will bring its quality to the spouse and married life.

Usually, natural benefics are welcome in the 7th house whereas natural malefic planets such as Mars, Saturn, Rahu, or Ketu cause issues in marriage.

Similarly, when both the 2nd house and its lord in the Navamsa appear to be bolstered and adequately placed, it features as an illustration of a prosperous second marriage.

After the, 7th house it is the 2nd house which should be given attention to.

The 2nd house stands for family, moral values, income, speech, good intake and is maraka also.

When the second house or its lord are well placed, it gives a stable married life filled with values and traditions.

They try to control their spouse and it backfire on them.

Influence of benefic planets increase this possibility and brings a spouse from a business family with good financial status. Native with this placement grows beautifully after marriage and sees good growth in career and finances. After marriage native can make a switch to business also and can get help from in laws wherever needed or required.

5. When Jupiter Is In second House: Another supportive placement to have which brings prosperity and auspicious events in married life. With this placement native is very honest, pious and life with high moral standards. It leads to expansion in family and wealth.

Native and spouse develops understanding which is very deep and divine in influence of benefic planets such as Venus, Mercury and Moon increase the auspicious results. Malefic planets can cause issues but Jupiter placement here can't be defeated to deliver good results.

6. When Venus Is in 2nd house: Venus is a benefic planet and does very well for marriage. It gives the spouse a polite way of talking which is helpful for a successful marriage. It also leads to happiness in relationships within family and with in laws.

In its debilitated state it can lead to divorce or separation from the spouse.

8. When Rahu is in 2nd house: Rahu is a natural malefic planet which gives speech issues and also indicates vices in native like drinking, smoking to the native. Under the affliction of Mars or Saturn these bad habits can lead to severe health issues and all this lead to bad impact on marriage. Native spouse also suffer from health issues and suffers from career troubles also. Native doesn't get along with in laws or with spouse either. If Rahu is in debilitation then it can lead to divorce or separation.

Native and in laws doesn't see eye to eye and for a women it can bring in laws with cruel nature. You have see above the impact of all planets in marriage when they are sitting in 2nd house. These results will modify based on the rulership of planet in a Horoscope but still results won't vary much.

Similarly 2nd house lord in your Horoscope should be seen, if it is placed in 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 9th, 10th and the 11th house then significations related to the 2nd house prospers and brings good results in a marriage.

This placement makes marriage boring and can affect the natives if they are into communication and have a need for attention. Under the influence of 6th house lord or malefics like Mars, Saturn, Rahu or Ketu. This position can cause issues from the spouse.

4. 7th lord in 2nd house: If you count 2nd house from 7th house. You will find that it falls in 8th house. This position indicates health issues to spouse and under the affliction of 6th or 8th house lord can cause loss of the spouse on account of illness. Under the affliction of Mars, Rahu, Ketu or Saturn it can lead to divorce or separation.

5. Placement of Mars in 1st house: This comes under manglik yoga and Mars aspects the house which have role of maintaining a marriage. Its 4th aspect falls over the 4th house of domestic peace. Its 7th house falls over marital life and spouse and 8th aspect Mars over the income, speech and family of spouse. Mars is a functional malefic planet and same time is under the influence other malefic like Rahu, Ketu or Saturn. Then it can cause marriage issues to the native.

6. Placement of Mars in 2nd house: In this house Mars makes native speech and behaviour firey and leads to a dominating nature. This leads to frequent quarrels with spouse and its direct aspect affects the spouses health and natives relationship with in laws.

7. Placement Of Mars in 4th house: 4th house is house of domestic peace and your peace in a marriage. When Mars is placed here without any influence of natural benefics then it makes the environment of house very toxic and native have to bear with humiliations from spouse. Influence of Ketu, Saturn or Rahu over this Mars leads to severe negativity which leads to absence of spouse for a long period of time. Let's see a example for this placement

The horoscope belongs to a women who is currently living with her parents and due to toxic environment of her spouse family she moved out in year 2023.

This horoscope belongs to a female who is having issues in her marriage due to her spouse sisters mental issues.

Her in laws are not supportive to solve the issues and promotes the bad behaviour of her husband's sister.

The other example horoscopes belongs to a male who have Mars in 8th house and his wife is suffering from severe health issues for past 5 years and it have affected his mental peace and finances.

Though due to good placement of his 7th house he takes good care of her and is devoted for her.

If he did not had a good 7th house condition then it could have either lead to demise of spouse or divorce between them.

This example also shows that when you have a good 7th house then it can save the marriage.

9. Placement of Ketu in 8th: Ketu is a malefic planet which is separative in nature. In 8th house Ketu causes issues in marriages on account of misunderstanding with spouse.  It also affects the health of spouse and doesn't allow good intimacy and romance with the partner. This placement also causes disharmony in relationship with in laws. For a women this placement is more hard and doesn't allow the good relationship with family members of spouse. This placement means Rahu will be in 2nd house and again Rahu in 2nd affects marriage very negatively. It causes native to indulge in bad habits and under the influence of malefics like Mars and Saturn possibility of grave mistakes by native in a marriage is indicated. It can bring extra marital affairs if Venus is influencing Rahu as a functional malefic planet.

10. Placement Of Rahu in 8th house: Rahu in 8th house is well known to cause separation or divorce. It a placement which brings a spouse of narcissistic personality. Under the influence of Mars spouse can be on violent nature. In laws also contribute to the issues and can go to extreme extent to harm the marriage. This placement means Ketu will be in 2nd house and it causes difference in opinion among family members and causes mishappening in family.

These are the major placements which cause issues in marriage and can cause divorce of separation for the native.

There are many other placements which causes issues in marriage and I have written a dedicated article which covers most of them.

How To Find The Timing Of Marriage

In order to find the when marriage is going to happen focus should be on the following aspects of the Horoscope:

  1. 7th house lord.
  2. Planets placed in 7th house.
  3. Planets aspecting 7th house.
  4. Venus karaka of marriage for male.
  5. Jupiter karaka of marriage for females.

There are other ways and tools in Vedic astrology which can help you to find the timing of marriage and you can read my article on timing of marriage for it.

For the purpose of this article we can continue with the points mentioned above.

As mentioned earlier, the 7th house and its lord controls the marriage and events in it and its first and foremost function is to create the event of marriage for us.

Before checking the timing of marriage we need to judge the horoscope regarding delays in marriage.

If placements for delays in marriage exits in the Horoscope then you need to read the Horoscope carefully before making false predictions.

Read my article on delay in marriage to understand the cause of it.

Once you have figured that out you need to see the mahadasha or the antardasha of planets which are connected with the 7th house or its lord.

It could be the dasha of the 7th house lord itself or dasha of planet connected to the 7th house in any manner.

Same time transit of Jupiter and Saturn should be given attention to see if they are making any relation with the 7th house or its lord.

It is called as Double transit of Saturn and Jupiter.

Let's see a example horoscope and apply what I have said above.

The following horoscope belongs to a native who got married in year 6-10-2015. 

Example Horoscope No.15

timing of marriage examples horoscope

Native got married in the sub-period of Mercury

He was running the sub-period of the planet Mercury in main period of Venus.

Dasha sequence for example horoscope timing of marriage

Dasha of Venus-Mercury is indicated

Mercury is his 7th house lord and is with karaka of marriage Venus.

There are more ways to predict the timing of marriage and you can use chardasha, yogini dasha, or use navamsha 7th lord for it.

But in most cases sticking to 7th house or its lord is enough and gives a clear idea.

To gain more information on this topic read my other article on timing of marriage.

Will spouse cheat?

Cheating in a marriage can be predicted and again a focus should be given to 7th house and natural karka of spouse primarily.

As mentioned before, the 7th house indicates the nature, behaviour and characteristics of spouse.

By calculating and observing the planetary influences of planets over the 7th house and its lord we can get a fair idea on this.

NOTE: In order to make a prediction on this, it is must you see the horoscope of spouse also and see the condition of Venus, Mercury, Mars and most importantly Moon.

I have mentioned in this article on how important is Moon in a marriage. In a horoscope if Moon is afflicted badly then the native will have a tendency of doing immoral deeds.

That is why Horoscope matching have its own importance, when done correctly it can easily predict the possibility of cheating in a marriage.

First and foremost we need to see where the 7th house lord is placed. If native have 7th lord placed in 2nd, 6th, 8th or the 12th house then possibility of spouse cheating on them becomes higher.

Same time if karaka of spouse i.e Venus for males and Jupiter for female is in weak state and is influenced by malefics then possibility of cheating spouse gets further strengthened.

If 7th house lord looks very strong and well placed in D-1 but in navamsha is weak and under influence of Mars and Venus at the same time.

Then it indicates that the partner may cheat. 

Look at the horoscope given below to understand it more:

The following horoscope belongs to a girl who got cheated in her marriage.

In her case the karaka of Husband Jupiter is debilitated in her 12th house.

This indicates the bad treatment given to her by the spouse.

Example Horoscope No.16

Anisha Horoscope

You can see the 7th house lord in 12th house with karaka of husband Jupiter in debilitated state

Also, weak karaka of spouse indicates loose moral principals, lack of determination in the spouse to control the urges.

Her 7th house lord Sun is also placed there along with Mercury who is lord of the 5th house which shows marriage by own choice.

She have Mars and Venus in the 2nd house and have aspect over the 8th house which is the house of spouse moral value and his family.

The combined aspect of these two causes her spouse to engage in a extra marital affair.

Another example we can see and it belongs to Bill Clinton.

Example Horoscope No.17

Bill Clinton horoscope

Bill Clinton Horoscope shows placements for cheating in a marriage

In his Horoscope, Venus and Mars are together placed in the 1st house.

It is a strong placement for engaging in activities affairs after the marriage.

Venus is karaka of sex and is weak due to its debilitation state.

Whereas Mars is lord of the 8th house which shows secret affairs.

And their union is a explosive placement which makes one to do bad deeds.

Now if you see the horoscope of his wife, Hilary Clinton.

You will see her 7th lord Jupiter in the 6th house which as mentioned is a prime indication of such behaviour from spouse.

Example Horoscope No.18

Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton horoscope shows a spouse with cheating tendencies

Then in her second house, Mars and Saturn are placed and their combined aspect over the 8th house shows the loose moral values of her spouse and his secret affairs.

Conclusion

Any marriage prediction starts with its karaka, which is Venus for males and Jupiter for females. It is essential that they are strong and unafflicted for favorable results in marriage. Refer to example horoscopes No. 1 & 2.

Then the planet Moon, which is the karaka of happiness and mind, should be assessed. If your spouse has an afflicted Moon, then you cannot expect good behavior from them, and the same applies to you as well. Refer to example horoscopes No. 3 & 4.

The 7th house and its role come into play massively. How your spouse will look and act will depend on the planets placed in the 7th house and where your 7th house lord is placed. The placement of natural and functional benefics indicates a spouse who will be supportive towards you. Certain planets in the 7th house, like Venus, Mercury, and Moon, give a good-looking spouse. The best placement for the 7th house lord is the 7th house itself.

After this, the 2nd, 4th, 8th, and the 12th houses should be checked. The 2nd house shows family, the 4th house represents domestic peace, the 8th house represents in-laws, and the 12th house has a say in the spiritual bond with the spouse. Afflictions over these houses or their lords can cause issues in marriage. Refer to example horoscopes No. 5 & 6.

Manglik yoga should also be considered, but at the same time, it needs to be understood that it may not cause issues all the time. Refer to example horoscopes No. 7, 8 & 9.

Understanding that timely marriage is important and how marriage will happen also has a role in the destiny of marriage, and love marriage-related placements should be checked thoroughly. Refer to horoscopes No. 10 & 15.

In many horoscopes, despite having a good placement of the 7th house and its lord, issues in marriage arise, and for that, certain planetary placements are held responsible and can even lead to cheating by the spouse. Refer to example horoscopes No. 11, 12, 13, 14, 16, 17, and 18.
