Finding Compatibility factors vs. making a prediction of Marriage


Varga divisional charts show the results of any undertaking in life. Varga charts do not determine the course of prediction. Varga charts serve as supplementary assessments that can be used to confirm predictions. Varga charts can also be used to develop a more detailed narrative of the relationship in question.

Navamsha (9th-divisional, 9th-harmonic, D-9) shows the "fruits of Dharma. "

Presuming an accurate birth time, navamsha (D-9) must be consulted side-by-side with radix (D-1) chart, to evaluate one's "dormant " traits that will be brought out only through interactions with intimate partners. (The intimate partner for those under celibate vows becomes the ishtadevata.)

Accurate predictions require coordinated action between one 's material life (D-1) and their psycho-spiritual life (D-9) .

  • Relationships with one's children , look closely radix bhava-5/9 (children/grandchildren) and Vidyapthi-5/9 and Brihaspati, then examine the D-7 lagna and role of radix Vidyapthi-5/9 within the saptamsha- D-7.

QUOTATION from d. Phil on the "Soulmate" concept:

d. Phil interview WRT Soulmates - Ladies' Home Journal, Jan. 2006


  • Many people say that when it comes to marriage, they're seeking nothing less than a soul mate. Is that asking too much?

d. Phil's answer:

" What's a soul mate? It's just a term somebody made up, and with it comes some pretty mystical expectations.

I've long believed that if you're looking for that perfect partner, you're making a big mistake.

  • If you can find an 80 percent fit and hope that you'll grow together on the other 20 percent, you'll find happiness a lot quicker.

  • You wait for a 100 percent partner and you're going to be looking a long time, maybe forever .

But if you're okay on The core issues -- children, careers, division of labor, religion, handling in-laws -- then you jump in and handle the other things as they come along. "

Marriage relationships are pre-arranged

All of these core life relationships are pre-arranged on the astral plane, far in advance of the participants taking birth on the earth plane.

These core relationships are established through patterns of matching energy whereby the pre-incarnationally planned programming (subconscious expectations) of one partner creates a match with the same projections of the other partner.

  • Marriage relationships create the structure for the most important and demanding spiritual work in this lifetime. That is why the marriage varga is also considered a deeply spiritual ninth harmonic .

  • Below the gross material level, marriage relationships are extremely complex and subtle. As most long-married couples will confirm, after the initial sexual enthusiasm has burned off, couples become so psychically merged that they do not even really see each other on the material plane.

It is easy to be lulled into a comfortable pattern of mutually satisfied expectations, raising children and satisfying parents' need for social respect. When the mutual expectations are easy and positive in this benefic-ruled style, the couple will have no motivation to seek astrological advice!

  • The marriage relationship in this case may be entirely superficial (a time off incarnation!) but if the marriage is relatively free of conflict, look to the navamsha for benefic effects.

D-9 shows the spiritual opportunity in marriage

Marriage provides the opportunity - for those who can grasp it - to observe oneself in the process of projecting one's own internally held subconscious imagery upon the surface of another person.

One's spouse, whose response patterns are represented in the mirror of the navamsha, is rarely at fault in a marriage conflict. Rather, one's own negative expectations can literally force negative results from an inherently neutral situation.

The intelligent person responds to marriage conflict by looking closely at one's own navamsha, in order to determine which expectations one is projecting.

Then that intelligent person takes steps to bring these ancient, pre-incarnationally planned conflicts (often ported directly from one's own parents) into the light of day, and negotiate a compassionate solution.

D-9 marriage view vs D-1 marriage view

Basic material results of marriage, such as accumulation of joint monies (bhava-8) production of children (bhava-5) or conditions of the dwelling (bhava-4), can be seen through the D-1 radix.

  • However, the essential psychological dynamic between the partners, which is caused by (largely subconscious) expectations and reactions from childhood and parallel lives , habits of repeating the dynamic of one's own parents' marriage, and other embedded psycho-spiritual imagery

  • The Jyotiṣika's time spent analyzing one 's navamsha will be repaid many times over.

Profiling marriage compatibility (not just timing) through radix-navamsha links

The items should match to secure a committed marriage (not effortless, but committed!):

  • your navamsha and the partner's radix

  • The partner's navamsha and your radix

  • your navamsha and the partner's navamsha

  • Moon linkage plays a major role

D-1-to-D-9 links show the issues on which you two partners are spiritually working together. Traits which are dormant or subordinate in partner-1 will be alive or dominant in partner-2. Thus each partner mirrors the other's arising consciousness, and facilitates spiritual growth by evoking astral imagery into real world action.

The navamsha reveals traits, desires, hopes, dreams, fears, et-cetera. which are dormant but trying to rise into consciousness in your life.You find the partner who is already acting these out in the material world. You are intensely attracted to this person they are everything you admire, everything you crave, everything you want to be. This person completes you expresses you forms your"other half " .

Naturally, you marry them!

Examine each bhava in Navamsha from the appropriate partner lagna to know the level of your soul that is just now moving from subconscious to conscious. We usually need partners to bring out this new personality growth in us. (Even if that partner is the ishtadevata.)

When D-1 spousal indicators contradict D-9 spousal profile

Normally, there is reasonable concurrence in the two perspectives given by D-1 and D-9.

However, when the navamsha and radix spousal indications are contradictory, there is usually to be found a public/private split in which things look on the outside (D-1) much different than they feel on the inside (d-9) in the marriage.

An important key to understanding the difference between public and private dimensions of marriage is to compare the character of the 1/7 axis in radix vs. navamsha.

D-1 vs D-9 indicatorsD-1 outcome typically indicates the social-material filter * what is recognized by all users of the five-senses paradigm

D-9 typically indicates the astral-plane map, which contains the psycho-emotional precursor and antecedent of the material outcome. Some intuitive people can discern the emotional reality which precedes the material manifestation.Shani-7 [dikbala].

Loyalty and steadfastness toward the marriage promise.

Shani randhresha-8 in Dhanus-7 is said to be particularly excruciating with infidelities abundant Yet, the dignity-honor [Shani] of married status will be upheld.

(The auspice of Shani's [dikbala] in 7 can be cancelled by a kuja dosha from bhava-4 but i this nativity Kuja disturbs only 7th from Chandra and not the yuvati bhava itself.)

Unrecognized [akashic memory patterns] = Marriage Karma (rules for action) seen in Navamsha

When reading the navamsha for spouse profile, keep in mind a peculiarity: 1st partner may be profiled from either 7th navamsha (most common) * or * 1st navamsha.

  • Initially, always try using 7th navamsha as lagna for the first spouse.

  • However, if the 7th really doesn't represent the spouse as you know them, be willing to read first spouse and all of their relationships - parents, children, previous spouses, et-cetera. - from the D-9 lagna.

  • DeFouw and Svoboda in Light on Relationships call this phenomenon the"80/20 rule " .

  • Approx 80% of navamsha charts will read correctly for the spouse = 7th D-9.

The partner should be mysteriously powerful, with access to confidential information and magical, transformative energy.

Secrecy is an important power for the spouse. It may be necessary to conduct the marriage in a veiled way, to prevent unwanted discovery.

The spouse may be skillful at re-inventing oneself [Vṛścika].

This is a particularly sexual or tantrik placement = intensity of controlling behavior in the spouse.

The primary relationship may remain completely hidden from public view.

Alternatively, one may avail oneself of tantrik practices which transform the marital-sexual energies into more esoteric realms.

[Mithuna - Dvamdva] = Svamsha suggests that one expects to form a marriage which is a coupling and verbal conversation, an exchange of narratives.

Mithuna tends to mental-ize one's behavior in marriage, focusing relationship expectations on exchange of information and ideas.

The general balance of the marriage or union =

  • one = messenger, missionary, envoy, apostle, evangelist, the primary communicator, writer and announcer, secretary , media-producer, administrator and event planner in the relationship.

  • The partner offers guidance and fatherly support, teaches wisdom, inspires others via sermons and lectures, and leads globalization activities.

(Adjust for any graha in D-9 lagna.)

Expectation of Dhanus characteristics in the partner

One expects the partner to be a wise guide . The partner should be a religious or deeply philosophical person with strong convictions regarding the divine and matters of intuitive faith .

Public acts of faith, publicly stated Beliefs of the partner may be orthodox or otherwise according to the stature of Guru in one 's own radix.

one expects the partner to be a preacher, professor, a priest, a guru, a spiritual guide, a teacher of high religion .

[Mithuna - Dvamdva] navamsha often remains unmarried because the primary life relationship = the Guru.

The partner should be a world traveler, a frequenter of temples, a ritualist * pujari, a philosopher, or a moral guide with patriarchal wisdom .

  • Such a partner often wishes to live in a university campus, in a multi-cultural environment, within a community of religious philosophers and world travelers.

Downside: the partner may be trapped in a ritualistic worldview, or substitute philosophy when pragmatic and timely action is required.

Karkata = Svamsha suggests that the native intends to provide to the relationship a nurturing, parenting shelter, an exchange of caretaking.

Oneself is typically of a rather more home-based, culturally foundational, customary and rhythmic nature, preferring the sheltered stability of home to the exposure of public life.

Division of labor between the parents is most important to the success of the partnership However, the Karkata-navamsha native is often ready and willing to carry the heavier parenting duties so long as the mate will shoulder the responsibilities of public dignity and respect.

Karkata tends to parental-ize one 's behavior in marriage, focusing relationship expectations upon the exchange of protective supports.

Adjust for any graha in Svamsha

Expectation of the partner = Makara-Draco

Division of labor between the partners = most important, particularly when the partners are parents.

Spouse may be a top-ranked corporate executive, a government officer, or other institutional dignitary.

Suitable partner should demonstrate regular habits, discipline either internal or external (usually more external-social), orderly in behaviors and comportment, aware of the ranking systems of large pyramid-shaped hierarchies, status conscious, class-conscious.

Agreement to bask in the brilliant light of celebrity, gamesmanship, courtly fashion, creativity, genius

One with Simha-Leya = Svamsha is the bright, sparkling, self-focused center of the marriage.

Simha generates a display of regal, political, theatrical, creative power an exchange of celebrity. Often a glamorous fashionista or politician with financial focus.

The mate by contrast is more sober, more structural in perspective. Mate-1 tends to be skilled in economics, in social networking within large assemblies, with fundraising and participation in extensive, regulated systems.

  • POTUS-pair-05 La belle Americaine 1768-1830 Elizabeth Kortright Monroe married POTUS-05 Monroe Doctrine 1758-1831 James Monroe. Their two-person career began with JM's first European diplomatic assignment and endured until retirement from POTUS-5.

Simha tends to glamor-ize one's behavior in marriage, focusing relationship expectations on exchange of entertainments.

Most of the public attention in the marriage is focused upon one oneself. Depending on characteristics of Shani, the partner is typically, a hard worker focused on pragmatic material concerns, a skilled networker and an economic agent [Kumbha].

A royal expression of joint celebrity and privilege.

one may believe oneself to be a very important person both within the marriage and in public.

Marriage = political relationship. Costume, performance, and noblesse oblige are important.

  • POTUS-42 My Life 1946- Bill Clinton married the career attorney, legal consultant, and POTUS-pair-42 + USA Secy State 1947- Hillary Clinton. The marriage is widely perceived as a political vehicle for both spouses. Hillary's Chandra-Kumbha matches Bill's Kumbha 7th-navamsha, containing Ketu-Kumbha..

Partnership is creative and dramatic, ideally it will be focused on channeling divine intelligence.

(Adjust for any graha in D-9 lagna.)

Expectation of the partner = Kumbha-Ghata

One expects the partner to be a social networker , capable of organizing the vast interconnecting circles of association within one 's life.

  • POTUS-17 Reconstruction 1808-1875 Andrew Johnson was married for 53 years to the village cobbler's daughter, Eliza McCardle. She suffered from tuberculosis and rarely traveled with her husband. Yet, Eliza wrote volumes of correspondence and newspaper articles in support of AJ's career in state and national governance roles. Her correspondence-based networking was polite and articulate, focused on economics [Kumbha] yet never failing to include a moralistic or uplifting Bible quote. Like many believers who were influenced by the roving Appalachian circuit preachers of the day [1820-1860] Eliza was convinced that slavery was enshrined in the words of the Bible. She helped AJ to circulate this belief throughout his constituency.

Partner should be an elder, systematic scientific but likely rather eccentric personality who functions well in context of assemblies, congregations, with the masses.

  • Pucci Prints 1914-1992 fashion Emilio Pucci (EPP age 45) Pucci the Tuscan married a fellow aristocrat from Roma. Their social dignity was based mainly upon their families' old names. She was economically engaged and well-connected socially [Kumbha].

Kumbha = co-ruled by both humble, conformist Shani and risk-runner Rahu.

The partner should have Kumbha characteristics of populism and neutrality, connected to the masses, and community oriented. It is fine if the partner = a somewhat common or working-class person or if from a distinctive background then perhaps a bit Rahu-ish, roguish, eccentric. Scientific in approach, and a competent functionary in large, distributive network environments but there should be a twist of barrier-bending, taboo-twisting or unusual behavior.

As a general balance, one has high entitlement to enjoy limelight attention and applause, while the partner [Kumbha] = a more background structuring force and imposer of order, who advances the couple's material goals and achievements while governing their social network.

Marriage view = Marriage is a mutual service agreement

[Kanya - Parthya] = Svamsha suggests that one expects to form a marriage in which ministries of service define the union. Marriage requires conflict management and engagement with problematicity which entails an apparently endless process of logical discussion.

One proposes an argument, files an accusation , generates an exchange of illnesses or complaints. Alternatively, at a higher level of consciousness, one may accept a ministry of service within the context of marriage as a purifying vocation.

Sustained analysis and practice of logical argumentation

Kanya = Svamsha tends to create an environment of service in marriage, focusing relationship behavioral expectations on ministries of service, helping professions, ongoing repetitive labor, employment and the workplace.

The native is dedicated to one's work and one may feel that diligent service in the workplace is the best way to satisfy the mutual support requirements of marriage. When stressed, behavior in marriage potentially expresses as illness, toxicity, or the exchange of conflicts, accusations, and disputes.

(Adjust for any graha in D-9 lagna.)

Consider also the possibility of matching between features of the nakshatra of the rising navamsha and certain characteristics of self or of spouse

Expectation of the partner = Meena - Antya

Lifemate often shows behavioral qualities = intuitive, dreamlike, generous, charitable, and willing to help any and all as an ephemeral spirit guide. Lifemate may be capable of channeling clairsentient visions.

Private bedroom communion is very important in this relationship. Public presentation or facade matters less. The marriage partner = deeply intuitive. Partnership need not be sexual.

The spouse = often a sensitive or other-worldly person, such as an artist lost in the creative process, or clairvoyant reader performing spiritually guided divinations. Alternatively, the Brihaspati-influenced spouse may be a worldly person with a very broad theological or cosmic-scale perspective upon world affairs.

Such a partner often wishes to live in a secluded area, even in a monastery, or in a distant land.

Imagination, seclusion, the bedroom, privacy, and sanctuary are important to the Meena Mate.

Downside: Meena = dissolution of fleshly identity. Spouse may be overly involved in liquid methods of entering trance.

The partner often has a lovely voice , teeth, mouth, and eyes. Mate is committed to caring for those beauties and other valued assets. Sensual pleasures of fine food and drinks, delicious tastes and sensual touch, are more important than public dignity.

The partner should be knowledgeable, especially WRT art, languages and history.

One may tend to think of the partner = as an object of value, a collectable, rather than as a participating equal.

  • Such a partner often wishes to live on an estate in the countryside, among the grazing horses and cattle, surrounded by works of fine art.

Downside: the partner can become excessively acquisitive.

Doctrinal, ideological agreement

[Dhanus - Haya] navamsha-1 suggests that one expects to form a marriage which is a doctrinal agreement, a religious oath taken in context of orthodox teachings, or an exchange of philosophical wisdom. Dhanus tends to dogma-tize one 's behavior in marriage, focusing relationship expectations on exchange of ideologically principled vows. marriage. A consecrating vow undertaken largely for the purpose of producing and teaching children and for missionary cooperation in spreading the understanding. Alternatively the approach to marriage may be based in political or economic theory.
  • POTUS-pair-38 Addiction Recovery 1918-2011 Betty Bloomer Ford in her autobiographies, BBF described the pressure she felt to conform her marriage conduct to a prescribed ideological model of the Republican Wife.

One is called to priesthood in some way or fashion, and the mate is called to communications proliferation of the message. In a husbandly nativity, marriage may be a vehicle toward becoming a guru-figure + entering the realm of fatherhood In a wifely nativity, marriage purpose is embarkation upon the wisdom-teaching priesthood

Expectation of the partner = Mithuna - Dvamdva Ideally the partner = commercialist, administrator, a writer with secretarial skills, reporter, in the media-production business, concerned with meetings and plans, writing, films, journalism, publication, story-telling, communicative arts.

partner = a sexual twin, a narrative exchange, a literary conversationalist, mercurial wit, mentalist. There is often a mutual understanding of free interest to mingle with other partners. Since Budha activates the 10th navamsha as well as the 7th, both partners may be successful writers.
  • Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt and his first lifepartner Friends 1969- drama-fashion Jennifer Aniston together developed a commercial film-production company. Her navamsha-Chandra = Dhanus. Thus many years following their divorce, the two former spouses remain interactive in their jointly held business operations.

If the spouse is not a vibrant and mercurial communicator , much disappointment.
  • Such a partner often wishes to live in a city or a commercial area, where many mental diversions and communicative exchanges are available.

Mithuna suggests partner's sexual multiplicity and partner having several important communication partners.

navamsha-1 Svamsha = Makara-Draco

Stamina, Endurance

[Makara - Draco] = Svamsha suggests that one expects to form a marriage which is defined by

  • class-consciousness
  • hierarchical perspective
  • sober responsibility
  • exchange of leadership duties
  • establishment of orderly process both within society and within the home.

Makara tends to material-ize one 's behavior in marriage, focusing relationship expectations on exchange of socially approved duties. Division of labor between the parents is most important.

Generally, one wishes for the partner to provide a basis (4) in life, a foundation of electro-magnetic emotional security and shelter.

Acts of public duty, designed to uphold the leadership reputation and ensure social dignity.

  • Germany Bundeskanzlerin 1954- Angela Merkel long-serving head of Germany and de facto head of the European Union, characterized by quiet diplomacy, personal dignity, and reputation for fair dealing

If this essential security can be established successfully (and that depends very much on the condition of Chandra in one's radix) then one is best suited to public work, managing hierarchical organizations in an regulatory fashion, imposing conditions of lawful order upon the populace, and directing groups while stationed at the pinnacle position.

If Chandra is well disposed, the division of labor can be smooth with the partner serving as stay-at-home parent and one secure to pursue a dignified career.

If Chandra is disabled, the relationship may collapse, even when well configured structurally (fine home, good parenting habits et-cetera.)

10th navamsha TULA concerned with VALUES, negotiation, beauty, diplomacy

Expectation of the partner = Karkata-Kadaga emotional security

The spouse is psychologically expected to be primarily a parent, caretaker, and a homemaker, with a great sense of care for the natural environment and the land. Partner may be a great patriot and roots-culture-activist. Generally, the patriotic feelings are strongest for the local area.

The spouse does not need a distinguished public profession but rather the skills of emotionally-responsive parenting are the most important contribution to the union from one 's point of view. Spouse may be a rhythmically habitual person and routine-oriented.

Spouse may be an environmentalist, a school-teacher, a nanny, a parent primarily, a lover of the land and the oceans, a gardener and caretaker, a steward and boater, manager of the homestead.

Such a partner often wishes to live in a tidal region or near the ocean waters. High security for the dwelling + surrounding properties will be needed.

As a general balance, one is a career professional with a strong orderly urge toward ascent of a hierarchy of rank + respect. The spouse prefers to remain at home and hearth. This is a comfortable public-private balance that supports a traditional family lifestyle quite effectively.

Spouse helps to call one into brighter visibility, promoting one 's recognition while one helps the couple to achieve their goals [Kumbha].

Such a partner often wishes to live in a hot, hilly region [Simha] or in a royal neighborhood where courtly entertainments are celebrated.

Downsides: solipsism and extreme self-focus of the spouse, to the extreme of inability to divert personal attention to the interests of one r.

one often wishes to live in a lake district, near a deep still lake, for water-gazing.

(Adjust for any graha in D-9 lagna.)

Expectation of the partner = Kanya - Parthya

The partner is a servant to the marriage , compensating in practical daily manual skill for the dreamy qualities of the spiritually guiding native. By character, the partner is service-oriented and concerned for those in lower or marginalized roles. Concerned for servants, animals, the exploited, the less fortunate.

Works well if Budha = strong in D-1.

Partner likely to be be humble and exploitable by character, highly logical and argumentative in nature, clean and youthful with profound attitude of service and a bendable will. Partner often subject to ailments nature of the imbalance-seeking-a-remedy depends upon Budha's role in radical nativity.

The partner may be exceptionally skillful at measuring, writing, calculations and composing litigation or accusations or formal arguments for a case. Spouse = co-writer or ghost writer for one 's books.

Spouse = physician, nurse, or a pharmacist, drug-seller, house-servant, restaurant or hotel worker, or agricultural worker. Kanya environments may support social worker or minister to the suffering or military officer. Mate may possibly be a relative on the mother's side. Spouse may be involved in any form of service occupation, but with a notable tendency to suffer from unfair contracts or to feel exploited.

Such a partner often wishes to live with the mother's relatives, in a servant's quarters, or in the workplace

Downside: life-partner may be exceptionally articulate in criticism and have a habit of blaming others.

Second marriage is partially characterized by 2nd navamsha or 8th navamshar.

10th navamsha career = Dhanus

preaching, inspirational leadership, sacred song, humanism, philosophy, optimistic doctrine


Links between native's D-1 and partner's D-9

Almost always there is a powerful connection between one 's D-1 planets and the spouse's D-9 planets - and of course, vice-versa. That is because the D-9 shows "recessive " traits-knowledge awareness which have been waiting for this particular person to mirror them to us as clearly as possible. When we find that person we feel whole.

All married people realize that getting along with the spouse requires being honest and getting along with one's self. We know we fell in love with them (or were otherwise bound to them) for a reason. That reason = one is trying to become more like them, or at least to become maximally aware of their knowledge operating in our own space.

Dishonest marriages are painful affairs seething with anger and guilt, victimization [being eaten] and blaming. Honest marriages are exercises in developing consciousness. It seems terribly ironic but also is brutally logical to understand that in fact, in our next life, one becomes the spouse.

Just as the student becomes the teacher, so the husband becomes the wife and the wife becomes the husband. Our dormant traits will -- through that spouse's evocative role-modeling-- become manifest We will, oh yes, become exactly the opposite of the person we think we are, whom we have juxtaposed against this inscrutable Other. We will all become precisely those traits which we are SURE that we could never be!

To see spouse(s) in navamsha :

Look to the 1/7 axis in D-9 to profile the first spouse. Traditional ly Jyotisha takes the sign on the 7th navamsha bhava and reads it as lagna for the first spouse.

  • E.g., to see the first spouse's values/wealth, consider the 2nd-from-7th in navamsha which is D-9's 8th bhava (and its lord) within the D-9.

  • To see the first spouse's mother, consider 4th-from-7th, or karma-bhava in the navamsha (and its ruler) within the D-9.

When reading the navamsha for spouse profile, keep in mind a peculiarity: 1st partner may be profiled from either 7th navamsha (most common) or 1st navamsha .

Try 7th navamsha for a first reading of spouse's character, but if 7th-navamsha really doesn't represent the spouse as you know them, be willing to read first spouse and all of their relationships - parents, children, previous spouses, et-cetera. - from the D-9 lagna.

  • Thus second spouse lagna would be the 8th navamsha, and second spouse's mother would be 4th-from-8th or the 12th navamsha. et-cetera.

If there have already been several marriagesyou can really test the profiles of previous spouses against the D-9 lagna vs. The D-9's 7th to see which is more accurate.

In fact, it may be that there is a correlation between folks who have multiple marriages and their navamshas, which must be read"spouse-wise"from the D-9 lagna rather than the D-9's 7th bhava.

If the birth time is correct and 7th-navamsha doesn't work, then reading from 1st navamsha will give truth.

In Light on Relationships, the respected Jyotiṣika-team deFouw and Svoboda discuss this D-9 lagna-as-spouse-lagna option.

The choice between using the navamsha lagnesha-1 or ruler of navamsha-7 as lagna for the first spouse is not a big problem, because all 12 rashi-signs are"yoked"into six yoga-pairs.

For example, Simha must be understood never in isolation but always as the solar half of the Simha-Kumbha polarity. (There is no king without commoners there is no politics without privilege.) So it will be second nature for the experienced Jyotiṣika to check the ruler of the opposite sign anyway.

There is one Best method to find the core character of the spouse. This link represents the aspect of their reality which keeps you linked to him or her. This link when articulated can explain what one is trying to become (or un-become) in the marriage:

Here is single most valuable technique for finding the point of matching energy which serves to attract the spouse. This matching energy maintains the work roster within the marriage until at least one of the parties has completed the transformation from ignorance into wisdom in regard to the contents of the link.

Want to see what you are working on and why?

  1. find ruler of bhava-7, planetary lord of radix seventh bhava

  2. locate ruler of bhava-7 in the navamsha.

  3. determine the lord of this navamsha sign

  4. study this planet carefully. Study its character, rashi influence, drishti by sign and bhava, everything about it. T his is the matching energy point.

  5. Your experience of the spouse is grounded in this point. If the navamsha lord of the ruler of radical bhava-7 = a genial, wise planet in radix, your marriage relationship will be delightful. The celibate religious often have exquisite marriage planets! However, if this graha is in a rough spot, so will be your spouse.

  6. The point is to take responsibility for the connection, the ongoing psychic tug-of-war with the Other. All those traits you have projected upon the spouse, are yours!

D-9 lagna and its lord: Basic Attitudes toward Marriage

When the lord of D-9 lagna, significator of one 's own behavior in marriage, falls into a dushthamsha * 6, 8, 12* , there are growth-challenging implications for ease of marriage -- yet * success * of marriage is highly achievable with personal attention to behavior and intent.

  • 6 (Budha-ruled) = jealous and overtly warlike, with the likelihood of chronic animosity.

  • 8 (Kuja-ruled) = secretive and conniving, with the prospect of catastrophic upheaval.

  • 12 (Guru-ruled) = not conflicted but tends to become disconnected. The marriage energy gets dissolved by spiritual concerns.

When the lord of D-9 occupies kundali indriya-lagna , one 's personality dominates the marriage. If the D-9 lord becomes strong and dominating, such as hot uttama or svakshetra graha, spousal concerns must take a back seat to one 's personality development and the spouse must often"take it or leave it"having little power to negotiate for accommodation or change which might conflict with the direct interests of one's personality growth. Three-step process:

Navamsha and "Soulmate"

  • Look to the 7th navamsha for dominant pattern of expectations of the spouse. The partner whose Chandra matches one's 1-7 navamsha axis (or one's navamsha nodal axis) = soul-mate, meant to be. Not easy - just properly matched!

By contrast, Authentic Marriage is one of the most difficult spiritual practices available. As d. Phil says,

  • Marriage is not a long date .

  • It's a partnership .

  • Partnerships involve give-and-take and sacrifice.

  • Men are really bad about understanding this."

If one's concept of"soulmate " can mature into the full expression of committed partnership, with all the ego-stress and material difficulty that long-term commitment enforces, then one will discover that the navamsha of one's own nativity gives a very accurate picture of one's "soulmate".

Finding Compatibility factors vs. making a prediction of Marriage

Q: Madam, Namaskar. Marriage is best as you have written in periods of Venus. While I would be running period of Mars-Venus from August-2010, my dream partner would be running Jupiter-Ketu. She will be running Jupiter-Venus from May-2011.

Does it imply waiting for that long for my dream partner to recognize that I am her destined mate? ....It is very exhausting simple waiting,...

A: Logically, there are only two conclusions available. Either this pair of nativities will not marry (which seems likely given the general lack of astrological affinity) or that they will marry but only during the period of overlap of mutual marriage periods. Regarding the two forthcoming Shukra bhukti, the range of overlap would be May-Oct 2011.

Keep in mind that this partner is your dream partner, upon whom you have projected many detailed desires for marriage partnership. However, there is no marriage currently being negotiated, nor even an active social relationship. It would be recommended to redirect one's Jyotishavidya analytical attentions to real-world relationships and events against which the principles of the samayavidya can be measured and tested. Jyotisha may give undesirable results when used on astral-plane relationships (those which exist only in the dream state).

In general, it only makes sense to engage in the detailed work of marriage prediction for couples who have an active love relationship and who are planning to be married - or for couples upon whose behalf an agent may be negotiating a marriage.

  • It does not make much sense to try to establish a mutual marriage date between two nativities that are not in a social relationship. To do so means investing a great deal of time into studying a relationship which cannot be tested or proven on the material plane. Without the test against real-world behaviors, Jyotishavidya is simply a parlor game. We need to test it against real people in real relationships to prove its validity.

  • In the classroom, it is good practice for students of Jyotisha to examine any two nativities for compatibility factors. But the mere ability to locate compatibility factors is not a basis for a prediction of marriage!

  • To properly learn the vidya in the modern age, it makes more sense to concentrate on one's own Vimshottari dasha timing and to evaluate one's own spouse profile. Then, examine the nativities of family members whose marriage dates are well known. Look at one's parents, siblings, cousins - note the Jyotishavodya factors that were present at the time of their marriage ceremonies.

  • Further, look to the karakas for the spousal profile. Evaluate your father's placement of Shukra, and see how his Shukra represents the qualities of his wife, your mother. Do the same thing for your mother, see her Guru position - all of Guru's characteristics, lordships from the Chandra lagna, role in navamsha, everything - and develop a wisdom about ways in which her Guru describes the man she married, whom you know so well as your Dad.

For women in your family who might have a second husband, examine their 8th-from-Guru. For men who might have acquired a second wife, look to graha-yuti-Shukra, and 8th-from-Shukra.

Studying the marriage patterns in many nativities may provide a much better sense of marriage unions and timing of the vow-speaking ceremonies which initiate the marriage commitment.

  • Looking too closely at one single potential partnership will not improve one's Jyotisha judgment and in fact may lead to Obsessive divinatory analysis.

  • For example, a client who is obsessed with Communist Cuba-Dictator 1926-2016 Fidel Castro has asked 100 questions about s. Castro but does not care to look for similar patterns in other world leaders. This client always complains, don't tell me about Kennedy, don't tell me about Kruschev, I only want to know about Fidel Castro! But without the case studies, the principles of Jyotishavidya can easily be appropriated by the mentally obsessive drive to profile and diagnose a single person. Then the sacred art of Jyotishavidya becomes psychologically invasive, and astrally manipulative. It becomes sorcery. And that is of course professionally and spiritually inexcusable.

Let us avoid stretching the basic principles of Jyotisha to create predictions with no foundation in reality. Rather, let us focus intently on material reality, on known events and verifiable social relationships, and let us build up a database of proven nativities for which real events happened when Jyotisha did predict them to happen.

Then, when a similar pattern arises in one's own life, one can scientifically predict yes this matches my Jyotisha profile without damaging the analysis with anxiety, fantasy, future projection psychological transference or other non-scientific mental confusions.

Wishing you all the best in Jyotisha Studies,

Sincerely, B.P. Lama, Jyotisha
