Venus is the significator of love and marriage and its strength, position and afflictions must be evaluated in addition to other factors listed in our earlier blog on the subject. Here we discuss the influence of Venus on unhappy marriages.
Venus is the significator of marriage and sex-life. A strong Venus placed in an angle or a trine without being blemished by malefics is an excellent sign for a happy conjugal life. Like the retrograde 7th lord, retrograde Venus in a birth chart tends to spoil the married life. Divorcees have often been found to be saddled with retrograde Venus in their horoscope. Venus in the 6th makes the native unattractive to the opposite sex but Venus in the 12th is said to be conducive to bed-pleasure. A strong Venus in the 5th is also likely to give a stable emotional life.
Apart from adverse placement and retrogression, Venus should not be afflicted in a horoscope. Its conjunction with Sun, affliction by natural malefic or it being hemmed between malefics definitely hampers prospects for a happy marriage. For example, Venus with Mars denotes excessive sex. Venus with Saturn or Sun subdues sex life. Venus with Rahu fosters extra marital relations often leading to sex scandals. Venus and Ketu may also implicate in sex scandal.
