Marriage Yoga

We know, Marriage is a sacred occasion. In Tamil there is a saying ‘Kalyanam enbathu aayiram kaalathu payir’ meaning Marriage is like a 1000 years crop which is planted once and benefits are harvested over 1000 years. That tells the need and importance of why great care must be taken before the wedlock of a Boy and a Girl.

Marriage Yoga plays a major role in Early, Timely, Late or Love marriage. Marriage Yoga is said to be formed when planetary conditions are favorable and friendly to Ascendant Lord.

Those with good Marriage Yoga get married at right time. But, when the conditions are unfavorable and additionaly if there are any Marriage Dosha (Blemishes) in the horoscope, then the person may get late marriage or stand no chance of marriage.

Planetary conditions which influence favorably or affect Marriage Yoga are :

1. The Planetary period : The Planetary Period plays a major in Marriage. The marriage takes place during Bhukthi period of 3rd, 7th or 11th house Lord from ascendant, provided the Dasha Lord is friend of Ascendant Lord. In my personal experience, I have noticed that marriage takes place during the Bhukthi period of 2nd or 4th house Lord.

The Planetary period is called as Yoga Dasha or Lucky Period when the ruling Planetary Lord and the Ascendant Lord are friend. If they are rival, it is called as Ava Yoga Dasha. A person with Yoga Dasha will get married on time where as a person caught in Ava Yoga Dasha periods, may not get married at all.

For instance, consider a person with Cancer Ascendant. if Ava Yoga Dasha (Saturn, Mercury and Venus) starts at the age of 23, the marriage will get delayed because the Planetary Lords are not a friend of Ascendant Lord Moon. However, If the Ascendant Lord is Saturn, Mercury or Venus then the person will get married on time.

2. Dignity of Planets : Jupiter, Venus and 7th house Lord are mainly responsible for Marriage. The disposition of these Planets should be good. The marriage may get delayed if these planets are afflicted.

3. Strength of Houses : 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th and 12th houses are associated with Marriage. 12th house for sexual pleasure, 7th for spouse, 5th for progeny, 2nd for family and 4th for peace at home. If any of these houses are afflicted, marriage will get delayed until the condition improves.

4. Jupiter Aspect : When the aspect of Transit Jupiter falls on Birth Sign or 7th house to Birth Sign, then it is called "Viyazha Nokkam" or simply Jupiter Aspect. For Girl, it includes 8th house as well.

Onset of Jupiter Aspect is considered as auspicious time in arranged marriage. Hence, most of the Parents wait for the Jupiter Aspect before start searching alliance for their wards.

Consider the Transit Jupiter is transiting through Aries. Then, it aspects fall on Leo, Libra and Sagittarius as shown in the picture below.

The Jupiter Aspect for Marriage for Boys will set for those whose Birth Sign is Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius or Aquarius Signs.

For Girls - In addition to the above the Jupiter aspect will set for Taurus, Capricorn and Pisces Signs (all 8th house).

5. Marriage Blemish : A person with clean horoscope, meaning free of any Marriage Dosha (Blemish), is likely to get married on time provided other conditions are in favor. However, if there are Marriage Blemishes such as Kalathra Dosha, Manglik Dosha, Putra Dosha then not only the marriage gets delayed but also leads to Separation, Divorce or Unhappiness in Marital life.

6. Upaya Lagnam : If the Ascendant of a person is either Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces (Upaya Lagnam), then marriage normally gets delayed. For all these Ascendants, the 7th house Lord, one of the important house Lords influencing Marriage, is also Badhakathipathi cum Marakathipathi and also afflicted by Blemish of Quadrant lordship (Kendrathipathi Dosha).

Thus, the 7th house Lord for Upaya Lagnam is functionally Malefic. Moreover, the Ascendant Lord and 7th house Lord (Jupiter x Mercury) belong to two different groups. So, naturally the 7th house Lord delays the marriage. And, if the 7th house Lord of these Upaya Lagnam gets posited in 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th or 12th house, then not only the marriage gets delayed but affects the married life as well.

A person gets married on time when all the above discussed conditions are favorable. Many people think that Jupiter Aspect is most important for marriage but is not so. Jupiter aspect also plays a role but it is not the only factor that influences the marriage.

Finally, the conditions discussed above need not be favorable for both the Boy and the Girl. If it is strong enough for one of them then it will influence the other and they both will get married.
