Seventh lord is in trik house and is an association with Sun, Moon, eighth and third Lord Venus. Moon, Venus and Mercury are badly combust. All the planets are in very close in degrees to Sun. Moreover, Mercury is in Rahu and Ketu axis. So it is hemmed in between malefics in the kundali. Five planets are placed in sixth house (house of diseases, debts, enemies). There is mutual aspect of Jupiter and Saturn. Debilitated Mars is placed in fifth house. Rahu is placed in twelfth house.

The lord of fifth house Moon is completely combust. Nakshatra swami is Venus. Second and ninth lord is Mars, who is in debilitation and placed in fifth house. Here,Jupiter makes Hansa yoga in kundali. Karaka of husband, children, health, education, all areas of native life have been taken care of by the divine planet. Jupiter, lord of ascendant is placed in ascendant itself in its own rashi. As it is said Jupiter has nectar in his aspects. In this kundali, Jupiter aspects fifth house (house of children) seventh house (house of spouse, marriage) Ninth house (house of destiny). All these houses are enhanced and the native gets good results. Jupiter’s benefic aspect on marriage house works as a shield for their relationship and the well being of the spouse.

Venus in the man’s kundali and Jupiter in the wife’s kundali is the factor which decides how much happiness they will have in their married life.

Like Jupiter, Venus is also bad for married life. If it is in the Seventh house, it makes a person prove to seek intimacy with another person after marriage. It brings problems and removes the bliss from the married life. If Venus or Jupiter aspect the seventh house or seventh lord then the married life would be enjoyable.
