One of the most common questions that an astrologer is asked is: Will I be able to marry the person I love. There are a number of combinations in the janam kundali or birth chart, that reveal whether the person will have a love marriage.
Position of Venus - Karaka of Love Venus plays a very important role in deciding whether the marriage would be a love marriage or an arranged one. Sometimes, it indicates physical attraction which usually does not end up in marriage. Venus is the ruler of pleasures, joys and desires and it should be pure and unafflicted for a pure love and a stable emotional life.
Venus the Karaka of love, when aspects ascendant, 5th house, 7th house or 11th house depicts the loving nature of an individual. But, conversion of love into a marriage is a different thing.
Venus signifies purity and senses. So, when it is un-afflicted and well-placed, senses would be under-control and the love would be pure. When such Venus is the lord of 5th house and is placed in the 7th house, your love can definitely have a happy ending with a love marriage.
The probability of a love marriage is also present in the condition when Venus is placed in the ascendant in the Chandra Kundali or is present in the 5th house from the Moon.
Role of 5th, 7th and 9th house in a love marriage
5th house is the house of love and in contemporary social conditions, it signifies attraction and romance. 5th house if occupied by the lord of 7th house, indicates a love marriage. The partners may come from an affluent family. Also, the life partner will be mature and it will be an advantage for the native.
7th house is associated with marriage and happiness related to marriage. The lord of 7th house should not occupy Du-Sthanas since this placement would give more unfavourable results. If lord of 7th house is placed in the 6th house, it acts as Maraka and you can expect any kind of trouble. If the 7th lord is placed in the 8th house, it denotes physical separation of the partners. When 7th lord is placed in the 12th house, the partners would be rejected.
Sometimes, hardly any combinations in the birth chart are present which indicate a love marriage. In such a case, we should not forget to check the Navamsha Kundali. If in the Navamasha Kundali, 7th lord and the 9th lord or 5th lord and 7th lord are in conjunction, the chances of a love marriage are 100%.
