What does a paper of this sort do? It comes up with answers as to whether two persons are suitable for one another as partners, whether having become partners they ought to continue being partners and whether anything in the interim which makes them think otherwise is probably only a transient issue, whether two persons are going to lead to a better life together than separately or with other people..and so on and so forth. Compatibility Analysis work varies a lot depending on the consulters. A lot of classical references and interpretations are route-maps travelled in order to arrive at advisory conclusions and in this type of work and all other, they are there also for the reading pleasure of advanced Jyotiṣa enthusiasts and consulters. This is knowledge and a vast number of consulters are also dedicated Vedic astrology enthusiasts-this elaborate journey in each consulting paper is also undertaken for their benefit. But the ultimate objective is always to give reponses that directly and unambiguously address the realities, needs and requirements of the person approaching me for solutions.

Note-Compatibility related work is often misunderstood in Vedic astrology/ Jyotiṣa and this is due to the misinformation prevalent on the subject. The foremost of this relates to Guṇa-Milān or the technique of matchmaking. For each set of two horoscopes that are being matched, the practice appears to be simply to mechanically add up the scores that come from the Aṣṭakūṭa Milān or the eight-fold matching. This is absolutely erroenous. Marriage and relationships were always complex and are all the more so in the current climes. Esoteric techniques tell us the relevance of the eight-fod matching where there is no complusion to add up the Bindus in the various criteria as if they arose from the same astrological matrix. They are disparate figures and are not meant to be added up. Apart from this the Ārūḍha Padas such as the Upapada/ UL, the Dārāpada/ A7, the Ārūḍha Lagna (AL) and such determinants have to be studied. Kuja/ Māṅgalika Doṣa is to be taken into account.
The idea is to arrive at an elaborate and healthy set of indices between two individuals which can study and advise on the behavioural, social, emotional, physical, financial, familial and Kārmic aspects of the compatibility or the lack of it, among other factors. Times change and so the dynamic interplay between the horoscopes has to be studied from the various Daśā systems. Divisional charts/ Varga Chakra are crucial and none more so that the Nāvāmśa Cakra which is in the fact the chart which relates to and deals with the area of marriage and sexuality.
CHARTS COMPATIBILITY FOR XYZ
Just looking at your chart and that of your wife, PQR, very many features spring into focus about some of the misconceptions in Jyotish, apart from the sheer complexity of the situation at hand. The greatest damage has been caused by the erroneous opinion rendered to you about the Manglik Dosha (The Blemish of Mars in Marital Matters) in the chart of your wife. In certain Jyotish circles the opinion is current that Mangal (Mars) in Karka Rashi (Cancer) does not cause Manglik Dosha. I suppose you have already found that this does not hold in actual practice! Moreover, the Dosha occurs in the 7th House (H) of PQR?s chart and this Bhava pertains specifically to marriage as it deals with our intimate relationships, partnerships: whether sexual or otherwise, marriage itself, sexual intercourse and our personal interaction with others at an individual level. Thus, the strength of this Bhava is absolutely central in the area of partnership whether in the realm of business or marriage. Affliction of this house leads to difficulties, the severity of which is contingent on various factors in the Kundalis at hand. While Mangal resides in the Kalatrabhava (house of marriage) in PQR?s chart, the situation does not repeat in your chart and thus there is no Dosha Samya or cancellation of affliction. As a result, Mangal is free to create havoc in marital life.
Mangal is the Naisargik Karaka (natural significator) of rage, violence, power, lust, passion, heat and anger. It triggers impulsive behaviour and insatiable desires and appetites. Its names are Kruradik, the cruel one and Vakra, the Graha that adopts twisted and unconventional means to get what it wants. The 7th H is so delicate that in Jyotish it is considered the best situation if there are no Grahas at all here, whether benefic or malefic. The militant and aggressive nature of this Graha violates the delicate nature of the marital bond and hatred, violence and trigger-happy mentalities begin to invade the domestic harmony. In other words, there is no place for the valiant and furious Commander-in-Chief of the Cosmic Cabinet in the Yuvati Bhava or the house pertaining to marriage. To add to the factors that I have enumerated here, Mangal is Neecha or debilitated in the 7th House of PQR?s chart, making her marriage suffer due to a serious affliction of all attributes pertaining to Mars. It is not natural for police, a natural signification of Mars (!), along with the armed forces and other uniformed services, to invade a Hindu-Indian home, even though it may be in the STU (name of country of residence omitted for reasons). All matters pertaining to a Neecha Graha suffer in their significations and the inherent fury of Kuja will rage unabated in a scenario where Manglik Dosha is not annulled in the chart of the spouse and this Mangal is in the sign of its debility as well.
Another interesting feature of the two charts exposes the real worth of the system of Gunamilan or Ashtakoota Milan, which has traditionally and mistakenly been relied upon as the sole means of matching charts. Traditional matching reveals that there is excellent compatibility in the two charts. In this so-called Matchmaking, a total of 36 points is possible. Out of this an outstanding score of 28.5 points has been achieved. It is not the contention that this area of matchmaking is without value; rather it must be viewed in the light that it merits. The various components that comprise the eight divisions of this analysis elaborate on various aspects of the relationship but the focal point is that all of these are based on the natal Moon?s location in the two charts. In other words, it is a Nakshatra based compatibility and can mainly indicate psychological parameters since Chandra is the Naisargik Karaka of emotional mapping and psychological characteristics. While Moon is a focal point in Jyotish and can reveal many things as an alternate Lagna, especially since this Graha is the representative of the Mother Goddess and indicates manifest reality, it cannot be the sole or even the dominant criterion for judgment of results. For example, the Bhrakoot in Gunamilan shows the egoic and family understandings between the spouses and their respective families. The Kundalis score a maximum of 7 out of 7 points in this area showing that the match was psychologically adaptable with the views of the two families and the ego at the level of the perceptive mind was unlikely to become a hindrance. The most important Nadi compatibility shows a maximum score again, 8 out of 8, showing that there is not much chance of the progeny being genetically deformed or otherwise unhealthy. Though this is sometimes taken to affirm the absence of any physical aversion between the spouses, the Yoni more directly pertains to sexual attraction and physical compatibility. Here, the score is only 50% with 2 points scored out of 4 showing some vulnerability in this direction, which needs further investigation in the charts. The other criterion is Graha Maitri, which shows the mental attitudes directly and here the lords of the Chandra Rashi are Shani (Saturn) and Guru (Jupiter) respectively. These Grahas are neutral to each other in the scheme of Natural Friendship and show adequate compatibility, if different in the view they take of the world at a level of emotional perception. Even the other factors show adequate compatibility scores showing that out of educational and private understanding of the world, no majorly discordant notes are likely to crop up.
However, it is beyond doubt that there are serious pressures in the marriage and this ought to waken us to the real value of Ashtakoota Milan. It cannot and ought not be taken as the final or dominant theme while judging charts and this fact is being universally recognized in elevated Jyotish circles. Loose and irresponsible attitudes of astrologers regarding the Manglik Dosha or affliction of areas significant to marriage by other malefic Grahas has contributed to discredit the genius of the Vedic seers. Anyhow, the mistake of an astrologer has hardly anything to do with the validity of eternally true Jyotish dicta. Therefore, it must be recognized that PQR?s chart has a serious Manglik Dosha in the 7th H directly affecting the marriage with sporadic violence, argumentation and intolerable atmosphere in the marital home. Mangal is your Atmakaraka (AK), the Graha farthest advanced by degrees in any chart, and it is teaching your soul lessons pertaining to violence and letting impulsive rage get the better of you. This is the avenue your Atman has chosen to advance the incarnate personality on the path to evolution and advancement. The effort on your part has to be to eschew anger, no matter how serious the provocation and this is said with the full realization that such a thing is easier said than done. Furthermore, when a natural malefic is the AK, it shows the propensity for a high degree of spiritual development. These trials are being visited upon you to understand some deeper significance of yourself and the underlying metaphysics that governs the world.
Kalsarpa Yoga is formed when all Grahas are between Rahu and Ketu. Kalamrita Yoga is formed when all Grahas are between Ketu and Rahu. Since the nodes are always retrograde or Vakri, in your chart, all Grahas are between Ketu and Rahu and thus there is no Kalsarpa Yoga but there is Kalamrita Yoga. The Rahu-Ketu axis is known as the Karmic axis and shows subtle Karma that must be experienced; the subtlety of the situation can be gleaned from the fact that Rahu and Ketu have no material existence so their lessons are also devoid of immediate rationality and always partake of a strong element of destiny and inevitability. When all Grahas are in the grasp of the Cosmic Dragon, of which Rahu is the head and Ketu is the tail, you can appreciate the strong fate that drives all the Graha energies in the chart. The natural age of the maturity and abatement of these Yogas is 43 years and till that age, Prarabdha or the active element of fate guides all events in life. The positive feature is that since in Kalamrita Yoga, fiery and unpredictable Ketu forms the apex, as it were, in accord with the nature of Ketu, the reason behind the suffering is the spiritual growth of the native. This is not so in Kalsarpa Yoga where material concerns obliterate the secret cause behind the destined torment and thus this is a preferable Yoga if a choice exists between the two. Further, the nodes are Neecha being in their signs of debility. This happens in the 4-10 axis and is a Rajayoga at a material level, including the area of career, achievement, societal status, actions in society and reputation seen by the 10th H, the Karma Bhava, but debilitated Ketu again shows that there is a need for you to curb the violence and sudden eruptions of anger. This is crucial, since at a pragmatic level, opinions matter and Ketu in Mithun Rashi (Gemini) rules the opinions of those around you to a great degree. This is so since Mithun is your Arudha Lagna (AL), the external or Mayik personality showing the way you are perceived by others around you, as distinct from the Lagna (Ascendant), which is Kanya (Virgo). So while actually you are a worrying person, sensitive to your own faults and those of others, careful about your health and interested in knowledge in a reserved way for it own sake, you are perceived as an outgoing and vivacious intellectual who is highly instinctive in decision making and ideas, if also enigmatic and difficult to understand. Also, since AL is in the 10th H from lagna, the external personality at the work place and in interaction rules the way you are perceived. It is your own actions that make your image and this is not the case in all charts. Thus with awareness and understanding, you can modify your perceived image to a degree.
Apart from your specific query about Kalsarpa Yoga, the Rahu-Ketu axis is also crucial in that Rahu is debilitated in the Upapada Lagna (UL). Like the AL, this is the Mayik counterpart of the factors pertaining to spouse. Thus, it shows the external attributes of the wife in your case and the way she is perceived by you and others. Neecha Rahu in the UL shows significant affliction to the area of marriage and this affects your peace of mind directly, as you have also indicated in your communication, since this is the 4th H of happiness and emotions. There is great turmoil here shown by the debilitated Demon Rahu and while it has given Rajayoga in relation to inanimate possessions like residence and immovable property, it must give illusion (a natural signification of Rahu) to the personality in the matters pertaining to wife, indicated by UL. It is clear that the destined suffering pertains to the AL and UL since the Kalamrita Yoga covers AL in the 10th H and UL in the 4th H; so while we must view the opinion ignoring the Manglik Dosha in PQR?s chart as being irresponsible, this has only come about due to the inevitability of the Karma shown by the Karmic nodes in the relevant area. It would have adopted any means to visit you. Such strong fate cannot be averted. So some distant comfort can be derived from the fact that all this is not the result of some unfortunate mistake but is destiny in full flow. While in some cases the AL and UL being in mutual Kendras (Quadrants) might have been interpreted as favorable, here due to the afflictions already studied and some yet to be delved into, it shows opposition. Grahas or Padas in the 7th or 12th from UL show the opposition to the alliance and here driven by the Karmic nodes, your wife has been led to file for divorce while you threatened her with precisely this consequence at a prior time. This is a clear-cut manifestation of opposition to each other and reflects the somewhat undesirable Karma that actuates the marriage and has always formed a permanent theme in the relationship right from the beginning. It was studied whether Rahu in your UL received any saving grace, as it were, from a benefic or Shubh Graha to save the day. Rahu is aspected by the Rashi Drishti (Sign Aspect) by Budh (Mercury) but Budh is Himself Neecha in the Kalatrabhava.
This position of Budh is not entirely welcome in the 7th H. Budh along with Shani is a neuter or sexless planet and while no Graha is really desired in the Kalatrabhava, the location of these two is particularly conspicuous. Budh does not aid sexual intercourse or physical attraction especially if other factors are detrimental or challenging. It is a youthful and superficial Graha that likes amoral behaviour and a playful attitude to sexuality, which is perceived as laxity of morals by people at large. Thus, strict watch is to be maintained over one?s conduct; any unwarranted indulgence with women of easy virtue or things of that nature will only aggravate the situation further since it is caused by Budh in the first place. The most crucial thing is to realize that even if some of the cutting remarks of the spouse pertain to the incompatibility and frustration precipitated by Budh, the resultant anger must be channeled with the thought that the situation is after all destined and evoked by Graha energies rather than some sort of a fault. There is yet another indication that Karma has chosen a particularly carefully crafted Graha scheme to work out some Karma pertaining to marriage. PQR?s chart has Mangal in the 7th H in debility while you have Budh in the 7th H in debility. There is only one Graha in the hierarchy of Grahas that Mangal is opposed to in the scheme of Naisargik Graha Maitri and that Graha is Budh. Thus marriage for both partners is assailed in this way as well by affliction of expectation and reality by two bitterly opposed Grahas or what works as an opposition since one of the direst malefics is inimical to the other Graha. In this manner, the first marriage seen by the seventh Bhava oscillates between rage, passion and unbridled desire on the one hand and a sense of frigidity and physical dissatisfaction or intimate incompatibility on the other; this is a pendulum of completely opposite tendencies and must precipitate great pressures and tensions in the relationship.
It was mentioned earlier that it might be more prudent to view the event of this marriage as destined rather than as a mistake that could have been averted with right counseling. This was said with reference to the Karmic focus of Rahu-Ketu. This destined element of marriage, especially as far as you are concerned is reflected in the principles pertaining to selection of spouse as they relate to UL. It is a principle that the Lagna of the spouse should be the UL, the 7th Rashi therefrom, or the signs in Trikonas or trines from UL. In addition, the Paka Upapada Lagna or the sign occupied by the lord of UL can furnish the Lagna of the spouse. In your case, Guru is the lord of UL in Dhanu (Sagittarius) and is placed in Makar (Capricorn). The Lagna of PQR?s chart is Makar suggesting that this marriage has happened due to inevitable Karma. However, for a lasting marriage, a reciprocal arrangement is usually requisite in the chart of the wife. UL in PQR?s chart is in Mesha (Aries) with lord Mars debilitated in the 7th H. Thus the Lagna of husband ought to be Mesha, Karka (Cancer), Simha (Leo) or Dhanu. Your Lagna is Kanya and this is not a linked Rashi. Thus the Karmic bonding essential to cement a lasting marriage is absent here.
The areas pertaining to marriage the first time around are seriously afflicted. In your chart, Guru the lord of the 7th House is Himself Neecha in Makar Rashi. A debilitated Budh placed there weakens t the 7th House and since Budh is the significator of thinking, this brings nervous torment relating to spouse and marriage. The 7th Lord (L) Guru is Neecha in 5th H afflicted by the worst Graha for Kanya Lagna, Mangal. Mars is the highly malefic lord of two Dusthanas, the 3rd and 8th. Since the 3rd H pertains to arms and hands, Mangal made you hit your wife. Though there is Neechabhanga Yoga or cancellation of debility for Budh and Guru both, this will not help in marital matters. Likewise, the exaltation of Mangal renders it very potent to bring violence and fear into the marriage. Mangal affects the Neecha Guru in the 5th House of love, creativity and fascination with the opposite sex and aspects by Graha Drishti, the Kalatrakaraka Shukra (Venus) placed in the potentially most malefic 8th H in combustion with the Dusthana (Evil 3rd, 6th, 8th and 12th Houses) lord Surya, the lord of the 12th H of separation from the first marriage. Surya is exalted but carries seperative tendencies as the Trika lord of the 12th House. The adverse station of Shukra in the 8th H further weakens characteristics of marital matters. The aspect of Mars to Venus in the 8th H of secret sexuality triggers Venus and thus restraint in these areas is a good idea for peace and harmony. The debilitation of Guru takes away a lot of auspiciousness from both 7th H and UL, most important determinants of the first marriage. The 2nd House from any Bhava relates to the fruits of that house and the 2nd H from UL is very crucial in determining the extent of longevity of the marriage. The 2nd H from the UL is Makar with Neecha Guru, Moon and exalted but highly malefic natural and functional Pap Graha Mangal. The 2nd L from UL is Shani (Saturn) well placed in Mitra Rashi (Friendly Sign) Vrishabh (Taurus). This also happens to be the most benefic Trikona from Lagna, the 9th H of fortune and luck. This auspiciousness is the feature that makes you contemplate carrying on with this marriage in spite of numerous challenges. But Shani also happens to be in the 6th H of nuisance, violence, anger, enemies, divorce: being 12th from the 7th, indicating the loss (12th) of the features pertaining to the matters of the 7th H: marital alliance. Thus Shani actually indicates a court decree showing separation from the UL. This is also the 12th H from AL and has the Shatrupada (A6). A6 is the Arudha Pada of the 6th H of enemies and separation and denotes the external and visible acts in this direction. Though Shani in the 12th from AL is excellent for career as is the 12th L Surya in the 6th in a Vipreeta Raja Yoga (VRY) but this is not central to the purpose at hand, which is determination of marital compatibility or otherwise. Just like UL is aspected by Neecha Budh by Rashi Drishti, the 2nd from UL is also aspected by Shani by Rashi Drishti. Thus Neecha Guru, Mangal and Shani afflict the 2nd from UL. For Rashi Drishti, all mutable Rashis aspect each other and all movable and immovable Rashis aspect each other except the one juxtapose. Further, A7, the Darapada, the external realities pertaining to partnerships whether sexual or otherwise, is in the 6th H from AL, and this shows adversity and inimical tendencies proliferating in relation to the external image when partnerships of an intimate or personal nature are brought into focus. This also suggests limited physical felicity between the couple.
In PQR?s chart, the 8th H is called the Mangalya Bhava or the area showing the nature and duration of the marital bond. There is a Guru-Chandala Yoga formed by the conjunction of Guru and Rahu. Guru is the Karaka for husband for women, particularly for Indian women where some tradition is still considered of value. Shani-Rahu combination also afflicts the 8th H of the marital bond. This added to the functional and natural malefic Mangal debilitated in the 7th H once again reflects the shaky nature of this marriage. The dispositor of the 7th L Moon is Guru and He is placed in the 8th H afflicted by two great malefics Rahu and Shani. Shani and Rahu are bitterly opposed to Surya and the latter is the lord of the Simha Rashi that falls in the 8th H. The lord of the 8th is in the 9th H with Neecha Shukra. Shukra is the permanent Karaka of marital bliss and domestic harmony and its debility almost seals the issue. Here too, apart from affecting the 7th H Mangal is the UL lord showing multiple afflictions to the area of marriage. Like in your chart, the UL falls in the 4th H of the chart showing that Neecha effects shall be felt in the domestic home. The 2nd L from UL rules the longevity of this marriage in your wife?s chart and Shukra is the lord of this house placed in combustion with Surya in its sign of debilitation. The second house from the UL is aspected by debilitated Mangal by Rashi Drishti and Budh also aspects it. The UL receives the aspect of Guru Chandala Yoga from Sthira Rashi Simha in the 8th H and also Ketu, another natural malefic. The aspect to 2nd from UL might be that of a natural benefic in Budh?s case but Budh is also the Lord of the 6th H, which rules the loss of the 1st marriage through a court decree. This has also brought in legal intervention as 6th is the house of law and punishment. The aspect of Guru to UL is that of a great natural benefic but it loses a lot of its protective grace due to the lordship of two Dusthanas, the 3rd and the 12th for her Makar Lagna which is aspected by full Graha Drishti by a Neecha and functionally malefic Mangal which makes her speak with unusual bitterness at times. Mangal also aspects Budh, the Karaka for speech, with His 4th Graha Drishti; the 2nd Lord Shani is in the 8th H with Rahu. All this points towards incendiary and bitter utterances. The UL and AL are Dwirdwadasha or in 2-12 positions and are mutually dissipative of each other. PQR?s 7th L Chandra is placed in a Dwiswabhava Rashi showing multiplicity and the Kalatrakaraka Shukra is Neecha in another dual sign. Thus a possibility of more than one marriage or romantic alliance cannot be ruled out. Shani Gochar (Transit) is also important and in your case it will be transiting through the 8th H from UL forming a kind of Kantak, threatening dissolution of what the UL stands for, since the Ashtam Bhava stands for endings and beginnings. In your case, this is also A8, showing the manifest events relating to end of marriage shown by the natal 8th H; A8 is also called Mrityupada but it just shows hidden and sudden events in life rather than necessarily evils in other directions. A2 shows the visible things relating to Kutumba or the immediate family. For PQR, Shani will be in the 7th H in Gochar over Neecha Mangal and this too shows some upheaval in marital life. PQR?s Mangal is also in Maran Karaka Sthana (MKS), which is an adverse station for Grahas. For you Budh is in Maran Karaka Sthana. For Budh and Mangal the 7th, for Guru the 3rd, for Chandra the 8th, for Surya the 12th, for Shukra the 6th, for Shani the Lagna and for Rahu the 9th are MKS placements. Grahas in MKS tend to give poor results for the houses they own as well as their natural significations and their placements especially if other factors point to the same results. The placement of 7th L Chandra in the 3rd H of desires and copulation gives desires that are not directed very well and since Guru is in the 8th H, Shani-Rahu and the malefic features of the 8th H vicariously afflict the 7th L. Mangal is the lord of the A7 and UL both in her chart and placed in the 7th H it gives a nature that is not centered on self-control. The need for interaction on her terms and her intensity is relentless due to the unbending nature of Kuja. UL lord in MKS will give adverse results pertaining to the marriage. The location of A7 in the 9th from AL suggests easy interaction with the opposite sex and this area will not show affliction. This is Srimantah Yoga and shows adequate blessings of Sri Lakshmi. There is a Sarpa Yoga in PQR?s Navamsha chart shown by the presence of three malefics in three different Kendras and is broken by the Moon in Chandra-Mangala Yoga which exists in your 5th House in Rashi chart as well. So blessings at a material level are assured. Sarpa Yoga shows passions that are not controlled and the breaking of the Yoga is due to Chandra and psychology and emotional restraint will be the hope for a containing of the affliction of Sarpa Yoga in Navamsha, which shows subtle realities of life and especially describes marriage. Chandra-Mangal Yoga, the link in your chart of Mars and Venus and Budh in 7th H in Rashi and Chandra-Mangal Yoga in PQR?s Navamsha show impulsive and passionate discharging of emotion and deep-seated feelings whether through anger or in some other manner and thus there is a sort of battleground atmosphere created due to the destined and Karmic disturbances shown by other factors. Thus in mutual appreciation, these afflictions are rendered serious.
In Navamsha, Mars is the 8th L placed in the 7th and the 7th L Shukra is debilitated once again and that too in the 6th H, the house of loss of matters of the 7th H of marriage. The Neecha Vargottama (Same Rashi in Lagna and Navamsha Chakras) Shukra shows debilitation of marital matters since Shukra is Kalatrakaraka. You can see, XYZ, that the area of first marriage is at least equally afflicted in PQR?s case as well. That there are subtle strands of Karma connecting her to you as well since Kumbha (Aquarius) is 9th from her UL in Mithun and Kumbha is your Navamsha lagna. Her UL is in the 6th H from AL in Makar, showing tendencies to separation. Shukra in the 6th, as mentioned before is a MKS placement and adds to the seperative characteristics of both the charts. The lord of the Upapada in PQR?s Navamsha chart is Budh and this is placed in the 8th H from Lagna. The 8th from UL has Ketu and the 2nd from UL has Rahu, both the areas governing the longevity of the first marriage are curtailed by these two malefics. Rahu-Ketu aspect the lord of UL Budh in the 8th H by Rashi Drishti, showing Karmic factors that indicate a splitting. The concept of Argala or planetary and sign intervention is also helpful in understanding influences in the chart and this technique of Parashara can illuminate areas effectively. You will recall, XYZ, that Shani?s placement in your Rashi chart was considered semi-favourable. Grahas in the 3rd from any Graha or Rashi have special Argala on that Graha of Rashi. Thus Shani in the 9th H in the Rashi chart has Argala on the 7th H that cannot be obstructed. Shani is a traditionalist and despite perversion and torment will do anything in its power to preserve the status quo. However, since Shani is a sexless, old and bachelor and miserable Graha, its Argala on the 7th H of first marriage, especially with Neecha Budh there will not aid harmony at a physical level with the first mate. It is upon such careful occult examination that the sacred nature of sexuality, like everything else in existence, comes through and it becomes apparent that many factors like destined and Karmic harmony of the partners with each other, emotional understanding, restraint and mutual help play a huge role in this field. Interestingly, Saturn also has special Argala on the 7th H in PQR?s chart in Navamsha and whether she is aware of it or not, there are desires that would like to have the marriage carry on if at all possible. But this is at a very subtle level in her personality and may not manifest visibly since Navamsha tendencies are subtle in nature. Also, Shani?s conservative Argala is not enough to counter the tremendous affliction caused by other Argalas. For example, exalted Surya has Argala on the 7th H in your chart from the 8th and ego and pride will make things really difficult. Neecha Guru, Uchcha Mangal and Chandra have Argala from the natal 5th H and Guru?s protective grace is eroded by debility while exaltation of malefic Mangal infuses so much rage in your mind pertaining to marriage that violence and serious damage are very likely. Neecha Mangal in PQR?s chart in the 7th makes sure that there is no letting up in this perpetual conflict. It is again a mistake to suppose, just like Mangal in Karka, that Mangal will not damage beyond 28 years of age. This is just the maturity age of Mangal and the worst effects of this bitterly hostile Graha are felt before this age. But that is no ground for saying that Mangal will magically disappear after this landmark. No such illusion ought to be harboured; there is some reduction in Mangal?s malefic nature but in view of the very extensive damage to the area of first marriage, this is unlikely to be of much import. As for Argala, Grahas and Rashis in the 2nd, 4th and 11th from any Graha or Rashi have primary Argala. The 5th and 8th have secondary Argala and the 3rd has special Argala that cannot be obstructed.
In your Navamsha chart, the 7th L Surya is in the 6th H of divorce and separation with the 7th itself afflicted by Shani and Shukra, the latter forming Karakobhavanashaya, namely, that the significator of a particular matter damages the affairs of the significator house if placed there. Simha is an inimical Rashi for both Shani and Shukra since they are enemies of Surya. UL is in Meena (Pisces) in Navamsha and Guru is placed in the 5th H and this is a favourable factor that imparts wisdom-oriented tendencies to somehow carry on and hope for things to get better. Guru also has Argala from the 11th H from the 7th on the afflicted Yuvati Bhava in Navamsha chart, trying to pour Gangajal on troubled wounds. UL is in the 12th H from the AL in Navamsha showing that the visible personality seen by the AL will be forced to reject the spouse. UL has Grahan Yoga with Chandra-Ketu in it showing that the spouse?s mind will not be clear and that delusion laced with impulsive rage will feature prominently in marital conduct. The 2nd L from UL is the lord of Arudha Lagna and is placed in the 8th H of the destruction of the subject matter at hand, namely the longevity of the marriage; to add to the adversity, this is also the 6th H from the AL, showing separation from the precipitate personality. Mangal is in the Rashi of Budh, its archenemy, afflicted by Rahu. Mars-Rahu have Argala on Shani in the 7th and Surya in the 6th tries to obstruct it. Thus pride and dignity try to keep it going but two Grahas overpower Surya and rage and anger and nervous torment coupled with meaninglessness and confusion overpower the marriage in Navamsha.
The Vimshottari Dasha sequence in your chart is Rahu-Shukra-Shani. Rahu is Neecha in the UL and shows a marriage that does not stand on a firm footing. The dispositor of Rahu is also Neecha and thus the foundations are further weakened. Rahu aspects by Graha Drishti, Surya and Shukra in the 8th H of termination of the marital bond. It covers and assails the brilliance of the exalted Surya. Though Shukra is an excellent Graha for Kanya Lagna it is the lord of Bhagya placed in the 8th H of loss of Bhagya with the 12th L. So Shukra Antardasha (AD) has brought this facet to the fore. The Gajkesari Yoga in the 5th H is virtually defunct due to the debility of Guru and while exaltation of the AK Mangal is very good for occult advancement, it is adverse for this marriage. The affliction of Guru is at once the affliction of the UL and the 2nd therefrom. Shani Pratyantardasha (PD) tries to make you somewhat cautious and conservative but as Shani is the 6th L of court decree, it does not deny the prospect of separation. Shani is conjoined A6, the manifest part of courts and legal proceedings. Budh PD from mid-Feb next year will probably speed up events and they will be undeniable. Debilitated Budh suggests that getting out of this dangerous situation is a better idea even if such an idea is inherently more difficult for Indians and Hindus.
In the Narayan Dasha scheme proposed by Maharshi Jaimini, the Dasha since 2003 is Makar. Narayan Dasha is a Rashi Dasha and is one of the most potent tools to time events. Makar is the 2nd House from UL and its affliction has been described earlier. Since Narayan Dashas have begun from the 7th from Lagna, let us ponder over the 7th from Makar. This is Karka in the 8th H from UL and 11th from Lagna. The lord of Karka is placed in the 7th with debilitated 6th L Guru from Dasha Rashi. The 7th L from Dasha Rasi is Shani placed in the 6th from UL conjoined A6. Karka is conjoined A8 and Shani will be transiting Karka over the next two and a half years. Meena AD has begun on 24th August and will go on till 25th April. You know that Meena is the 7th H from Lagna with Neecha Budh. In 2005, Moon the lord of Dasha Rashi (actually 7th from Dasha Rashi Makar) will give results and placed with a Guru who disposits Rahu in debility and is in debility Himself paves the way for a separation.
In PQR?s chart, the Vimshottari Mahadasha of Ketu operates. Ketu is in the 2nd H of Kutumba and 8th from the 7th H of marriage ruling its termination. Ketu is conjoined A6 and aspects the 7th H and Mangal by Rashi Drishti. According to the dictum Kujavad Ketu, Ketu acts like Mars and inflames the 7th H. The dispositor of Ketu is Shani in the 8th H afflicted by Rahu and Guru where Guru is the functionally malefic lord of the 3rd and 12th. Shukra is the Yogakaraka Graha for Makar Lagna but it is debilitated with the 8th L. The Narayan Dasha of Kumbha operates in the chart of your wife. Since, in her case as well, the Narayan Dashas start from the 7th H from Lagna, let us consider the 7th from Dasha Rashi, which is Simha, the afflicted 8th H of the Lagna chart, showing an afflicted Mangalya Bhava. This is the 6th from the AL showing that her external personality shall be involved in litigation and court work. The lord of Simha is placed with a Neecha Karaka of marital life and must give its results. Since Simha is a malefic Prishthodaya Rashi, rising feet first, its results shall be felt in the last one-third of the Dasha period. The Narayan Dasha period of Simha is 1999-2005. Thus there are divisions of two years each. The last is 2003-2005, which is running now. Simha will give the results of the most malefic 8th H from Lagna and 6th H of court decree from AL. In 1999-2001, the results of the aspecting and conjoined Grahas would have accrued. In 2001-2003, the results of the Lord of Simha would have come about. The most pertinent fact is that the malefic results of the Rashi are being felt in this phase. From the Dasha Rashi (actually the 7th from Dasha Rashi), Guru is the 5th and 8th L showing that love (5th) is causing ruination (8th) and Shani Rahu in Dasha Rashi make her feel that the spouse (7th L Shani: you) is trying to overpower her personality. Rahu adds delusion, fear, phobias and other malefic manifestations in the sign of the king of the Grahas, the Sun, to whom Rahu and Shani are bitterly opposed. The AD sequence in Narayan Dasha is also quite adverse. Mithun AD is running now and this is the 6th H from Lagna showing violence and court intervention, as too police and physical force. From October, Karka AD will start which is the badly afflicted 7th H from Lagna and the 12th from Dasha Rashi with Neecha Mangal. Violence, rage and injury are more likely than ever in this Antardasha, which lasts till 5th April 2005 when Leo starts which is the 8th House from Lagna and its afflictions have been elaborated upon earlier. From both charts, the actual physical distancing seems most likely around April or thereafter and before that the sole idea should be to avoid further violence and injury, at all costs.
In sum, having studied the Graha tendencies in both charts pertaining to first marriage, the scenario is very seriously afflicted and in such cases it might be most prudent to attempt to minimize the damage from this Karmic event. Divorce appears the best option to try and counteract any possibility of an even greater calamity from affecting the lives at stake. There is a conspicuous want of protective features that might have otherwise helped. It is hoped that this Jyotish analysis will aid a clear vision of the difficulties at hand and offer a reasonable way to step out of this imbroglio too.
