Marriage and Horoscope Every one in the world would like to lead a happy married life. Do you know that your time of birth can decide this? Or else you would be able to have a control over this through your horoscope, which is drafted according to your time of birth. Most Hindus and Buddhists believe in getting a horoscope drafted.
In Science it has been proved that any two bodies have an attraction towards each other depending on the formula m1m2 /d2, m1m2 being the masses of the two bodies and d, the distance between the two. From the formula it is clear that the effect would be more if the bodies are heavy, and so it is if the distance between them is short.
The heaviest things in the solar system are the planets, and they have an effect towards the Earth. A horoscope is drafted according to the way the planets are positioned around the Earth, at the time of birth of a person. In drafting a horoscope the Sun too is considered as a planet. There are 12 houses, which are called ‘Rasis’ or ‘Lagnas’ in the zodiac, of which, the sign rising from the East at your time of birth, is considered your Lagna. The Rasis that follow cover the other cages of the horoscope. The planets with each Rasi in the background are noted in the relevant cages of the horoscope.
The Rasis 1,7,and 8 are considered to have an effect on marriage and 2, 4, and 12 to some extent. Planets Moon, Mercury, Jupiter, and Venus are considered benefic planets and Mars, Saturn, Rahu and Sun are considered malefic. If malefic planets are positioned in the houses mentioned it has been found that, it would cause problems in marriage and is known as “Bhaumadosha”. When persons have malefic planets in the above houses in their horoscopes, they should find a person having planets with similar effect in the relevant houses of the horoscope for marriage. That means the horoscopes should be tallied or compared and found whether the harmful effects are nullified by each other, or else the marriage would not be a success. The love and affection towards each other and how far they are satisfied by each other could be found out when the horoscopes are matched. The religious rituals also can bring down the malefic effects to some extent.
The 27 constellations or ‘Nekath’, the star arrangements beyond the zodiac, are considered to have a decisive effect in this. In tallying horoscopes the Moon’s constellation of the two persons have to be severely considered. Many Buddhist and Hindu partners make it a point to check their horoscopes before marriage. This may be the reason why divorce in eastern countries is lesser than that in the western countries.
The 1st thing that has to be done when tallying two horoscopes is comparing the malefic points or “Bhauma Dosha”. If the two differ by 10 points or less, the marriage is advisable, and the “Porondam” are compared, which are 20 in number.
The malefic points that are allocated to different houses and planets, are as shown. The points of the house and the planet are multiplied by each other and taken, and added up.
Mars - malefic points - 4
Saturn - malefic points - 3
Sun - malefic points - 2
Rahu - malefic points - 1
If the planet is positioned beneficially the malefic effect is reduced. The malefic points of the female should be less than that of the male. The points are also calculated considering Moon’s Rasi as the 1st house (Chandra Lagna)50% , and also taking Venus’ Rasi as the 1st house 25% and totaled up.
The horoscopes of Madam Sonia Gandi and Prime Minister Rajiv Gandi are shown below.
When the malefic points were calculated in the above, the female horoscope had 32.5, while the male had only 21.75. (The space in the paper does not permit the calculation to be shown) In this case the difference exceeds 10 and the Dosha points are higher in the female. This shows that this male cannot live long in the marriage life, with this particular female.
Even with malefic planets in the 7th house, you could get married and have children regardless of the horoscope. But to have fortunate and long living children and lead a smooth life, the best way to get married is after tallying the horoscopes.
