How marriage Astrology Works. How Astrology Can help for your marriage.

Marriage is a very important event in the life of an individual. As soon as one settles down after studies and getting a job, the parents look out for a suitable partner for the individual. The individual also would be interested in knowing if he /she would have a love or arranged marriage. It is an age old tradition in India to have a marriage prediction done with the help of marriage astrology.

The first question an individual would ask the astrologer would be when I will get married. The astrologer would make a detailed study of the various planets and their positions in the various Houses to make a marriage horoscope.

Out of the 12 Houses in a horoscope, the 7th House in the natal chart is considered the House of marriage in astrology. Also, the 2nd, 5th and 8th Houses are considered important while making the marriage prediction.  The two main planets which are significators of marriage are Venus and Jupiter. In a female’s horoscope, the position of Jupiter is assessed and in the male’s horoscope the position of Venus is assessed for marriage. The position of Mars in the birth chart is also very important for study of the marriage horoscope. The D-9 Chart or the Navamsa chart also needs to be studied to understand the marriage prospects of the individual.

Favourable time for marriage

For knowing the time of marriage, the 7th House needs to be analysed carefully. We need to analyse the strength of the 7th house, its lord and the karaka of the 7th house, Venus.

Some of the methods we would use to predict the time for marriage :

  • Before we predict the time of marriage, first we have to check if Yoga for marriage is present.
  • After that, we need to assess if there is early or late marriage.
  • If marriage yoga is present, the individual may get married during the Dasha of a planet related to the 7th House.
  • The Dasha of the ascendant Lord and 5thLord is also important.
  • Marriage can take place in the Dasha period of Venus as it is the significator for marriage in case of males whereas it can also take place in the Dasha period of Jupiter as this planet is the significator for marriage in case of females.
  • The planet Rahu also gives marriage so the Dasha of Rahu also needs to be analysed.
  • In the Navamsa chart, the Lord of 1st,5th and 9th House and planets connected to these Houses or their Lords are important.

The Houses that need to be analysed while studying the marriage horoscope.

  • The 7th House and its Lord are important for marriage prediction by date of birth.
  • The next House assessed will be the 8th House as it is the 2nd House from the 7th House. It tells about the stability and sustenance of marriage and also indicates the physical relationship.Thus when the 5th house or its Lord connects with the 8th house or its Lord, it could give sensual nature and creates astrological Yoga for Secret relationship.
  • The 2nd House is indicator of the family and relatives and this House is thus analysed as marriage connects two families.
  • The last important house for predicting timing of marriage in astrology is the 11th house. The 11thhouse tells us about the gains, our social and friends circle and also indicate the fulfilment of desire. So, nothing is gained without the Blessing of 11th Lord.

Planets which predict marriage Timing in astrology

  • The Planets which would give Marriage in their Dasha and Antardasha periods irrespective of their Lordship or position are Venus and Rahu. These two planets have mportance in Marriage astrology.
  • Venus is the Significator of Marriage and Relationship. Thus if the Dasha of Venus is running in the marriageable age it might give Marriage even if it is not in connection with the 7th or 8th or 11th house.
  • The next planet is Rahu. If the Dasha of Rahu is also running in perfect marriageable age, it can give marriage in its Dasha or Antardasha. So these two Planets are considered very important in Marriage time prediction by astrology.


The 5th house is considered the house of love and 7th house is considered the house of marriage in a horoscope. To assess the Yoga (planetary combination) for Love marriage, it is essential to decipher the strength of the 5th house and it’s Lord in the kundli. If the 5th house and its Lord are strong and without afflictions, there are chances of a love marriage to increase, as per the Indian Vedic astrology.  If the 5th house has strong emotional planets positioned in it, there are chances of there being a love relationship. It is extremely necessary to judge the relation or connection between the 5th house and 7th house. Also we need to analyse if there is any aspect or conjunction between Venus and Mars. Mainly, the 5th and 7th houses and the Venus-Mars relations tell us about the possibility of love or arranged marriage. The 9th house (house of fortune) and its Lord also play an important role in this matter.

The Houses that need to be analysed while studying the marriage horoscopefor love or arranged marriage.

  • 7th house is considered the house of Relationship. This House is important for all kind of partnership-marriage partner, sex partner, romance partner etc. This House also indicates about our marriage and married life also.

The blessings of this house and 5th lord are neededfor happiness to be obtained in marriage and Relationship.
  • 5th house would indicate Romance and affair. That is why it is the primary house for checking Love marriage. Some involvement of 5th house has to be there for Love marriage.
  • 8th house indicates about physical intimacy, sexual pleasure etc. and also about things which are secret and hidden. It might not have a direct impact while checking Love Marriage in Horoscope but it is important for Love and Relationship.

Gana Dosha is a Mahadosha along with Bhakoot and Nadi Dosha in match making kundlis. In Ashtakoot Guna milan system, Gana factor is given 6 points out of total 36 points, thus Gana factor is a crucial factor affecting the decision on marriage compatibility. There are 27 Nakshatras which have been segregated into 3 groups namely - Rakshash, Manushya and Dev Gana.

A person’s Gana is determined by the birth Nakshatra,which is the birth star of the individual. The best match is when the bride and the groom have the same Gana which indicates high compatibility levels. A marriage between a Dev Gana and Manushya Gana is usually said to be a suitable match. But, a match between a person of a Dev Gana or Manushya Gana with a person from a Rakshash Gana is avoided. A person having Raskhasa Gana can have a harmonious marriage with another person of the same Gana. 



In Ashtakoot Guna milan system, Bhakoot factor carries 7 points out of total 36 points, thus Bhakoot factor is a crucial factor affecting the decision on marriage compatibility. Bhakoot dosha is about three combinations of 2–12, 5-9, and 6–8 moon signs between the moon sign in the horoscope of two individuals. The first would bring financial problems in the marriage, second would bring issues relating to children and the third gives incompatibility and unhappiness etc.


The maximum 8 points out of 36 points are given for Nadi matching in the Ashtakoot Guna Milan system, which shows the importance of Nadi.As the Vaidya find out about our health by checking our pulse for vaat, pitta and cough, similarly, before the marriage of the boy and girl, the information of the emotional attachment in the future is obtained by checking the Aadi Nadi, Madhya Nadi, Antya Nadi.

The Nadi mainly tells one about the success of marital life and about the progeny in the future.

According to the Vedic Astrology, marriage should not take place in any situation if there is a similar Nadi of the boy and girl. If the Nadi of the bride and groom is identical, then it is known as a Nadi Dosha(defect) and marriage is not allowed in the same Nadi. The Nadi would provideinformation about the person’s mind and mental energy.
