Unhappy Marriages are often indicated by planetary combinations in a Vedic Horoscope. The source of unhappy relationship may come from Death of Spouse, Divorce, Legal Battle, Separation,Barren Marriage, Infertility, Childlessness, Separation from Spouse due to Extraneous reasons (military, economic, health etc. ), Mental Mismatch, Personality Clashes or Extra-marital Affairs of Spouse. Here we examine one of the factors responsible for unhappy marriages according to Vedic astrology: Seventh house and its lord.
1. If the lord of the 7th is posited in any trika houses (6th, 8th or 12th ) either from the Ascendant or from seventh house, it may not promise a happy married life for the native. 6th house from the Ascendant represents the 12th house from the house of marriage (same as 7th house) and the 6th house from the house of marriage represents the 12th house from the rising sign. Thus the presence of 7th lord either in the 6th or 12th house is a bad sign for a happy married life.
2. A retrograde 7th lord irrespective of its placement does not also produce good results with regard to happy married life. In fact a retrograde planet creates unnecessary complications particularly with reference to the house over which it has lordship and fails to act as a trendsetter while a happy marriage presupposes a steady upward trend with assured mutual interaction and dependence. A retrograde Saturn, ill placed, for the Ascendants Cancer and Leo is not conducive to a happy married life while a retrograde Jupiter for the Ascendant Gemini or Virgo specially in the 12th has often been observed to create complications in married life. The condition of retrogression of the 7th lord will not apply for obvious reasons to the Ascendant Capricorn and Aquarius.
3. A severely afflicted 7th lord without the compensatory influence of a natural benefic in the form of association or aspect is also apt to produce bad results with regard to married life.
4.Condition of the 7th house in addition to those of the 7th lord are to be examined at the same time. A malefic in the 7th house is not a desirable sign unless the house is its own. Saturn in the 7th or aspecting 7th unnecessarily delays marriages and often makes married life a dull routine affair. Wife of a man with the Sun in the 7th may grow prematurely old. A man with sun in 7th may ill treat his wife. Mars in the 7th may kill the life partner. A malefic in the 7th without other redeeming features may also cause illness to the spouse.
