Arranged Marriage

In this marriage system, the decision of parents is primary and that of the bride or groom is secondary. In our society, first of all, the bride’s father initiates the selection of the groom. Selection is done on the basis of health, education & Income of the groom. These are the major criterias for selection. Secondary criteria are the family and the social status of the parents of the groom. If these are favorable, matchmaking is done with the girl and marriage is finalized.

Arranged Marriage In Vedic Astrology

The primary determinants for marriage are the 7th house, 7th lord, Venus for male, and Mars/Jupiter for females; If they are powerful and well placed the marriage is destined. Besides the 7th house and 7th lord,  the 2nd house and 2nd lord and 11th house and 11th lord should also be examined. If the 2nd house, 7th house, and 11th house lords are connected to each other, the marriage will be successful. If the lords of the 2nd, 7th, 11th houses are making any relation with the Sun or Moon, the marriage will be arranged by the parents

If Venus is somehow connected with the 4th house or its lord, or 9th house or its lord, the marriage will be arranged by the parents. If Venus will be connected with the Sun or Moon, or benefic planets, so, the marriage will be arranged by the parents. 

The strength of Mars should be examined while judging female horoscopes. If the 2nd, 7th & 11th house lords are connected with mars so the arranged marriage will be with the help of the brother. If with Mercury, it will be with the help of maternal uncle or relative, and if the planet is Jupiter so the person could be an elder from the family of the native.

If the lords of the 2nd, 7th & 11th houses are connected with the 4th house or its lord, or 9th house or its lord, the marriage will be arranged by their parents. If the lord of the 2nd, 7th & 11th houses and Venus are connected with benefic planets, then there will be an arranged marriage.

Love marriage Yoga in horoscope : 

In the marriage horoscope, the 5th House is for Love, Romance  and 7th House is of Marriage. For the love marriage to happen, there has to be some sort of a connection of the 5th House, 5th Louse Lord with the 7th House and 7th House Lord.

To check for love marriage, we need to study the 7th House and its Lord:

The influence or positioning of planets like Venus, Mars or Moon on the 7th House would give you a marriage partner of your choice.

Suppose the Lord of the 7th House makes a connection with the above planets, there are chances of you getting married to your preferred partner. If the Lord of the 7th House is in  the 1st, 5th or 12th House, you would get married to someone known to you form a very long time before marriage

Next we need to focus on the planet Venus which signifies love and romance. We now study the association of Venus with Rahu, Moon, Mars, Lord of the ascendant, 5th, 7th and 12th House.

If Venus is found positioned in the 1st, 5th, 7th, 8th, 10th or 12th House, you would be leaning towards love affairs and as per the combination of the planets have a love marriage also.

The next planet we study is the Moon as it is the Karaka of our mind. Our acting and thinking depends on the position in the various Houses.

· If Moon is found to be under the aspect of the planets Venus or Mars, it gives interest in the opposite sex and could give marriage with your loved person.

· If the Moon is positioned in the 5th , 7th or 12th House, then chances are that you would marry a partner of your own choice.

So we need to analyse the condition of the 2nd house and its lord in the birth chart as well as in the Navamsa chart.

  1. All Hindu ceremonies are done by Hindu Brahmins and no other performs the ceremonies according to the facts written in scriptures and Vedas. So Indians are really giving attention or importance to the priest or Hindu pandits.
