Marriage is one of the most joyous and blissful experiences in one’s life. Everyone contemplates when, where and how they will get married and eagerly waits for the special day. Sometimes, obstacles may occur in one’s life regarding marriage, like there is a delay in marriage or it is not a healthy marriage. This may hinder someone’s mental peace and stability. With the help of a birth chart and analysis of planetary placements, these problems related to marriage can be predicted.
The main house concerned with married life is the 7th house, as it determines legal bindings and legal relationships. Other houses that can influence the marriage are the 4th house (house of family relationships), 8th house (house of physical relationship), 12th house (house of sexual interests) and 5th house (house of romance).
When it comes to planets, every planet has a distinct characteristic and portrays specific behaviour and details. In a male’s chart, Venus determines the wife, and in the female’s chart, the husband is determined by Jupiter.
Saturn and Mars are the main delayers of marriage in the native’s life. When Saturn is in the 1st, 5th, 7th and 10th house, it gives the delay in marriage; especially for Cancer ascendants because the 7th house of Cancer ascendant is ruled Capricorn, which in turn, is governed by Saturn, and Saturn is a slow-moving planet that leads to delays,
Further, Mars in 12th house, 4th house and 7th house also leads to a delay in marriage; especially in the sign of Cancer, Libra and Aries
Ketu, being the malefic planet, is the main kilter of marriage for certain natives. Ketu in 7th house and Ketu in 3rd house makes a person not having any desire to get married for his whole life. It is believed that the main reason behind this is that the native’s past life marriage was not successful, and Ketu leads him to believe that even in this life, there would be obstacles.
Also, when the lord of 7th house is in the 6th house, it gives constant losses from marriage. Hence, a person with this alignment will feel trapped in the union and have losses in his married life. The reason being that the 6th house is 12th to the 7th house, and the 12th house denotes losses.
Other conditions that lead to denial in marriage are: Venus sitting with Rahu and Saturn in the same house, especially in the 7th, 8th or 12th house and Mars, Rahu and Venus sitting together in the 12th house of losses.
It is important to note that no one placement can give a definite result as these conditions only lead to an 85% possibility. Moreover, analysing one chart is not enough to clearly determine the marriage of a person. D9 and D7 charts are also considered because these charts show potential for marriage.
The problem of non-occurrence of marriage in a native’s chart can lead to grave stress and tension for that person. In order to resolve this issue, certain remedies might work in favour of marriage.
