Proper Marriage Matching is very effective to avoid divorce or Separation even after Malefic influence in Chart. Our Marriage Matching Guide will remove most of your misconception about Horoscope Matching and Will give you a new insight about the complete process.

Planets and Houses that are responsible for divorce in Astrology

The Malefic planets specially the Mars, Rahu, Saturn and Sun is of separative Nature. So these planets acts as a divorce agent in Kundli. Except these two more planets are equally important. Venus is the Main planet for Love, Romance, sex and Marriage. In case of Male chart this also indicates Wife. so if Venus is afflicted, Retrograde or Weak it is indication of Marital disharmony. In case of female chart Jupiter is considered as the planet for husband. So when Jupiter is weak or afflicted it shows unhappiness from husband.

Important houses for divorce Indications in Horoscope

The main houses for Marital harmony or disharmony and for judging divorce in astrology are 4th house, 7th house, 8th house and 12th house. Except these we have to check Upapada Lagna(UL) and second house from Upapada Lagna.

4th house is happiness from Family. When 4th house or 4th Lord is afflicted, there is lack happiness from family. If the 4th house is strong and 4th lord is well placed, divorce will not be the final outcome inspite of the other divorce yog in astrology.

7th house is the Main House for Marriage. It is not only about marriage but also for all sort of relationship. So when 7th house is afflicted and 7th lord is also weak, it indicates that the individual is not destined to get a good marital life. If there is no benefic aspect or mitigating factor, the native is going to suffer regarding marriage.

8th house rules the sex life of any individual. Among all the Houses, 8th is the most evil House. It can bring all sort of hidden thing, secret things, obstacles, struggles etc. Moreover being second from 7th house it is responsible for the sustenance of marriage. If 8th house is afflicted, 8th lord makes connection with 7th lord or house it may bring all sort negative result for marriage. It is the Main House for Extramarital Affairs in Astrology.

12th house is known as the house for bed pleasure or sexual pleasure. If 12th house is afflicted it indicates poor sexual life and if 12th lord is afflicted it shows lack of interest in Sexual Life.

Lastly we have to see the condition of Upapada Lagna. It is the Arudha Pada of the 12th house. For example if you are born with Taurus Lagna, then your 12th lord will be Mars. If Mars is placed in Cancer, it will be 4 sign away from 12th house. We will again count 4 sign from Cancer to get the Upapada Lagna. 4 sign from Cancer i.e. Libra will be the Upapada Lagna(UL).

Upapada Lagna shows the quality of relationship a person will have with Spouse. If Benefic planets are aspecting the Upapada Lagna, it indicates a good Marriage. The Lord of Upapda Lagna and planets aspecting it has immense importance when judging the spouse nature, character, background etc. The second house from Upapada Lagna shows the stability or sustenance of the marriage. If the 2nd from UL is having malefic planets like Rahu, Mars or aspect of Malefic planets, it shows the divorce chance in astrology.

Basic Principles of Divorce prediction in astrology

There are numerous Divorce Yog in astrology and it is very difficuilt to remember them all too. So i am going to discuss some of the most important divorce indicators in astrology.

  • If the Lord of the 7th house is associated with 12th lord and Rahu and placed in Lagna it is condition of Marital discord astrology. If the Lord of the 12th is placed in 7th house with Rahu or if 7th lord and 12th lord is in mutual aspect or exchange sign and Rahu is associated with one of the planets, there is strong chance of divorce in astrology.
  • When birth takes place in the sign of Mars and Saturn , Venus occupies the Lagna and 7th house is afflicted, the wife leaves the native. Presence of Moon and Venus is considered bad for happiness of marriage. If this combination is afflicted by Malefics, it is a strong indication divorce in horoscope.
  • One of the very strong combination of separation in astrology is the presence of Sun in the 7th house under affliction or debilitation with a weak 7th lord. It becomes more strong divorce indicators in astrology when Venus and Rahu or saturn and Rahu is also placed in Lagna. I have written a detail article on the effect of Sun in 7th house of Horoscope. You can read it to get more insight.
  • The 6th house rules the court case, litigation etc. We can not get marriage without permission from Court. When 6th Lord is in 7th house or vice versa or 6th and 7th lord is conjunct, the separation takes place after lot of legal proceedings. 6th house is 12th from 7th , so it is the Loss of Marriage. Whenever 6th house or Lord is associated with¬† Significator of marriage Venus, it may also bring divorce in astrology provided the 7th house is also under the influence of separative planets Like Mars, Rahu, Saturn, Sun etc. It has been observed that when the 4th house is afflicted by 6th lord or 4th lord and 6th lord is conjunct, chances of separation in vedic astrology is high.
  • If the 7th lord is afflicted and separative planets like Mars, Rahu, Sun etc are in 8th house, Divorce prediction in astrology can be done. The chances of divorce in vedic astrology will increase more if 7th house falls under Papakartari yoga also.
  • When the 7th Lord is retrograde and 8th house is afflicted by Rahu, Mars , Sun or Saturn, chances of separation in marriage.With this combination if the Venus is also retrograde, this deteriorates the situation.
  • If the 12th lord is placed in the 4th house or 4th lord is placed in 6th, 8th or 12th house, 7th lord is afflicted by Rahu, sun, saturn or Mars and the Significator of Marriage Venus is also afflicted or debilitated, divorce in astrology charts is very high.
  • when the 7th house from Navamsa Lagna is afflicted by Malefics and Rashi chart also shows divorce Yog in astrology, separation or divorce can be confirmed.
  • If the Rahu-Ketu is placed in the 1-7 Axis of Navamsa, this is very strong Yoga for unhappy marriage in astrology. It will give more Bad result if the significator of Marriage is debilitated in Navamsa or afflicted by Malefics in Navamsa.
  • In Navamsa chart we have to see the Navamsa Lagna, the 7th house and the 8th house. If these Houses and their lords are afflicted chances of divorce in astrology increase. We have to see the condition of the 7th lord of Rashi Chart in Navamsa chart. Venus-Ketu conjunction in Navamsa is a strong indication of divorce in astrology.
  • The second House from Upapada Lagna if afflicted by Malefic Planet like Saturn, Mars, Rahu or Ketu can break a marriage. When the Upapada Lagna is conjunct by Ketu and Venus is placed in 12th house, it indicates separation and unhappy marriage.

These are the main fundamental principles of Divorce in vedic astrology. We have to see these condition from Lagna, Moon and also in Navamsa. We have to keep in mind that Jupiter aspect can save a marriage inspite of serious affliction.

Timing of Divorce in astrology

Now Lets understand the Timing of Separation in astrology. Divorce may happen in the Dasha of 7th lord itself, if it is associated with 6th or 8th house.

Divorce in astrology

The ascendant of the native is Taurus and the ascendant lord Venus is debilitated in the 5th house in the sign of Virgo. Venus is aspected by Jupiter, the lord of the sign of exaltation of Venus. Hence Venus gets Neechbhang yoga (cancellation of debilitation).

The 7th house from the ascendant is hemmed between two malefic Mars and Ketu. The 7th lord Mars is situated in the 6th house in the sign of Venus and aspected by malefic Saturn and Rahu. Mars is also posited in the Swati Nakshatra whose lord is Rahu, a strong malefic. Therefore the 7th house and the 7th lord from the ascendant are heavily afflicted.The 7th house from Moon is occupied by the 7th lord Saturn which is aspected bl the 12th lord Mars from the 6th house. Therefore the 7t house and the 7th lord from the natal Moon are afflicted.

From the Navamsa, The 7th house is afflicted by Malefics like Sun and Mars. Mars being the 6th lord, it is also functional malefic too. The significator of Marriage Venus is placed in the 8th house. So the condition of divorce in astrology is satisfied in Navamsa too.

  1. If divorce or separation happened… Due to malefic planets in 7 th house.. What about 2nd marriage.? That marriage also unhappy marriage or good marriage… And that 2nd relation also same like 1st relation or what…?

  2. If divorce or separation happened… Due to malefic planets in 7 th house.. What about 2nd marriage.? That marriage also unhappy marriage or good marriage… And that 2nd relation also same like 1st relation or what…?

    • Thanks for your comment Praveen. If the the first marriage is not good, that does not mean that the 2nd marriage will also be bad. May be the the first marriage is poor because of problem with 7th house or lord. But 2nd marriage will be calculated from 2nd house. So 2nd marriage and 1st marriage result will not be same.

  3. […] Before Proceeding further- Please remember, Whenever Rahu Transits over Your Lagna, Arudha Lagna, It is very bad for your image or status in society. Moreover if you have Afflicted 7th house and Rahu transits over your Arudha Lagna or Upapada Lagna, It can create serious trouble in your Married Life, it can bring Separation even. See if you have Marital Problem in your chart. […]

  4. sir, a general doubt. Can we consider NavamsLagna-lord as a high benefic “equivalent”to Rajyogkarak Kendr-Konanadhipati of D1(or even Lagn lord ofD1)?? pl clrify. thanks. regards.

  5. sir, thanks for clarification. your comments are very illuminating. one more doubt sir. SHUKRA in BHARANI by itself (without affliction even), i understand,leads to extramarital relations. More so,if lord of 7th house too is conjunct Rahu. Should we reject such kundali as life-partner,even if strong benefic GURU is in Lagna?? pl clarify. Thanks.Regards.

    • Only Venus in Bharani nakshatra can not take a person to Extra Marital Relationship. See the condition of 5th lord, See the condition of Mercury and Moon. Strong Jupiter in Lagna means Ethics and Morality. Check the Navamsa too. I have written on extramarital affair also. you can go through it as a reference.

Sir; If two friendly benefics(natural &functional) are close yuti,signifying good marriage by lordship. but both have close-drishti of a strong malefic(functional &natural too) much stronger than each,but much weaker than their combined strengh. assume all other marital factors neutral not affecting marriage.
