Why Use D9 chart for Marriage prediction
There are Many Divisional Charts. Why Navamsa is chosen for Marriage and Marriage partner prediction ?
Navamsa chart is the most Important Divisional Chart. Dividing any Rashi or sign by 9 part, we can constitute Navamsa chart. 9th house is the house of Dharma or Fortune. In Hindu religion Marriage is considered to be the Dharma or duty of highest order. It is a Union of Atma or Soul. That is why we try to predict Marriage from Navamsa chart.
If Rashi chart is the Main Tree, Navamsa chart is the fruit of that Tree. Everything We can Judge from Navamsa Kundli but still Marriage is specially checked from Navamsa.
I will give you a small idea about How to Read the Navamsa chart or D9 chart.
It is said that Navamsa acts as a refinement. Any planet in exaltation or friendly sign or in Own sign may not give you Auspicious Result as per expectation if it occupies a debilitated or enemy sign in Navamsa. Similarly a Planet in debilitation or enemy sign may give you Auspicious Result than expectation when it occupies a Own Sign or friendly Sign in Navamsa. So it is very important to check the Strength of the Planet in Navamsa chart while reading Horoscope.
If any Planet is in same sign in Rasi Chart or D1 chart and also occupies the same sign in Navamsa Chart or D9 chart, it is known as vargottama Planet. Such Planet becomes extra Strong and can deliver very Good result if it is beneficial for your Ascendant. In my Practical experience i have seen that a Planet in own Navamsa or Vargottama Navamsa gives Auspicious Result.
There are some Auspicious Navamsa for each Sign. Any Planet within that particular degree range of any Sign becomes extra strong. These are known as Pushkar Navamsa. You can read more about Pushkar Navamsa and the degree range from My Article. There are many more technique which we should give due importance during Navamsa chart reading.
I have made a Video on what Why Navamsa chart is So important and what the 12 Houses of Navamsa indicates. You can watch it for better understanding.
Now lets discuss how we will know about our future Spouse from D9 Chart. But Before Discussing Nature of Spouse from Navamsa chart or Life Partner characteristics from Navamsa chart, Lets talk about the type of Marriage described in Hindu Religion.
There are 8 Types of Marriage described in Manu Smriti. These are as below
1) Bramha Vivaha: In this Type of Marriage groom Seeks Bride as per their Skills and abilities. Jupiter is the main signifying planet for such marriage. This is considered to be the kind of Marriage. In Modern day we can compare it with an arranged Marriage where both Boy and Girl complete their Education and after that as per family and other factors two persons get married.
2) Daiva Vivaha: This Kind of Marriage happens when one is unable to find a suitable groom or Bride. In this type of wedding, there are no feasts or celebrations that are specific to the wedding, but the wedding of the daughter of a poor family is held as an act of charity by wealthy people. Mars is the main signifying Planet for such marriage.
3) Arsha Vivaha: In this kind of marriage the girls family is unable to bear the expense of the marriage and the boys family pays a nominal or cutomary gift as the price of the bride and brings the bride home. This kind of Marriage is not suitbale in modern society. Moon is the main signifying planet for such marriage.
4) Prajapatya Vivaah: This type of marriage is the same as the Brahma vivha in all respects, except that this type of marriage takes place when the groom and bride both are very young. The wedding ceremony may take place but the marriage is not consummated for several years, until the bride and groom are old enough. This kind of Marriage can be referred to the Bal Vivaha of earlier days. Sun is the main signifying Planet.
5) Asura Vivaha: This is very similar to Arsa vivaha. Here the Grrom family Pays lot of Money to the family of the girl as Bride Price and Bring the Bride home. The only difference is that in Arsha Vivaha, the price paid was a nominal one or customary one but in this case lot of wealth is given. Money Rules this kind of Marriage. This Kind of Marriage is not considered good in society. Mercury is the signifying Planet.
6) Gandharva Vivaha: This can be referred to Modern Days Love Marriage where Bride and Grrom is attracted towards each other and they Fall in Love. Venus is the main signifying Planet of such Marriage.
7) Rakshas Vivaha; When some one is Kidnapped or forced to Marry due to some reason is Known as Rakshas Vivaha. In recent time we see Several Marriage happens for Political gain or Business expansion etc. In earlier Days Kings used this kind of Marriage for expanding their Kingdom. Saturn is the Main Karak for this kind of Marriage.
8) Pischa Vivaha: In this type of Marriage the Bride is either intoxicated or not in stable mental condition during Marriage. Rape can be compared with this kind of Marriage. Rahu/Ketu is the signifying planet of this kind of Marriage.
The Main House for Spouse Prediction is 7th House and 7th Lord. So We have to check the 7th house of main birth chart as well as the 7th house of Navamsa Chart.
Remember, 7th house in Birth chart shows what we want or what our desire is and 7th house in Navamsa chart shows what we will actually get.
7th house not only Indicates Marriage but it also indicates all sort of Physical relation. That is why the Arudha Pada of 7th house (A7) needs to be checked for all kind of Physical or short term relationship in Kundli. Darapada (A7) also shows the kind of People one Associates with. So these houses need to be checked when predicting spouse from Navamsa chart.
Now Lets discuss Some principle of Jaimini astrology to understand the type of Partner you can get or the kind of partners you will attract.
Saturn is in 7th house or Associated with Darapada (A7), person often mingle around with senior person or Aged person. They Want their spouse to be practical, matured and dutiful.
When Moon is in 7th house or conjunct with darapada(A7) the native wants a caring, emotional and sensitive Life Partner.
If Venus is in 7th house or Associated with A7, it indicates that the individual want some one very good looking and beautiful.
When Jupiter or Mercury is in 7th house or Associated with Darapada (A7), the native seeks a wise, well educated, religious, honest person as husband or wife.
When Mars is in 7th house or conjunct with A7 it indicates that the native wants some one who loves sports, who will have lot of fighting spirit, Bold and courageous.
But this is purely the desire of the individual. But what the person will actually get will depend upon the 7th house in Navamsa and the Navamsa sign of 7th Lord.

Some important Combinations for judging Spouse from D-9 Chart
For a good and happy marital life, we have to first see the condition of the 7th Lord of Rashi chart(D1) in D9 chart. The planet should not be debilitated or afflicted by Malefic in Navamsa. If the 7th Lord of Navamsa is Well Placed and Strong, it Indicates that Your Spouse will have Good Financial Status.
The Navamsa Sign where The 7th Lord of D1 chart is Placed, will give us hints about the Social Status and Position of your Spouse.
After that we have to see the 7th house of Navamsa chart and condition of 7th lord from Navamsa Lagna. If all of them is in Good condition, we can safely predict Happy Marriage Life.
Saturn and Rahu combination in the 7th house of Navamsa chart can Give You a Partner from Different Caste and community. If the Darakaraka Planet is conjunct with Planets Like Saturn, Rahu, Ketu etc, It can also give you a Partner from different Caste.
Only After Minute Analysis of Main birth chart and D9 chart, We Should reach any Conclusion. When people approach us for Marriage/Relationship Consultation we use all of the above mentioned technique and many more to come to an conclusion.
Rahu is the planet of expansion. So When Rahu comes in contact with any Planet it amplifies the energy of that planet.
Venus is the Planet of Love, Romance, Artistic and creative Skills within us. It is the Planet of Luxury and comfort. This the Main planet of Desire in a Horoscope.
So when Rahu and Venus are in conjunction or in the Same sign, it increases the Qualities of Venus. It increase the Passion within us. It increase the Romantic Nature. It will also enhance our Desire and you will be more inclined towards Luxurious and comfortable Lifestyle. You want Big House Like a Big Bungalow or Luxury cars etc. In this Process we will also Spend a Lot of Money as well.
Navamsa is the Main divisional chart for marriage and relationship. But this Rahu-Venus conjunction in Navamsa chart or D9 chart is not considered Good for a Good Married Life or a Good Relationship. As it will increase the passion within us, we do not get satisfaction from a relationship easily.
If in this Conjunction is further afflicted by Planets Like Saturn or Mars, it can even give more than one relationship at a Time. Sometime this can Lead to extra Marital Relationship or Infidelity as well.
But when Analysing the Rahu-Venus conjunction in Navamsa, we also need to see the Signs or we need to Check the Sign where this Conjunction has happened. Scorpio, Pisces, Cancer, Aries, Gemini, Virgo Signs will create More Damage in comparison to others.
Navamsa is also a chart of your Talents. So Rahu-Venus conjunction in Navamsa can also give you Good creative skills. If Moon is also Associated with this or if this conjunction is in Signs Like Leo or Taurus or Libra, the creative skills will be even more.
But this is not good for a happy married life. If there is other malefic combination present in both Rashi chart and D9 chart, this conjunction can even create situations like divorce or separation. That is why we see a lot of celebrities like actors, singers etc faces problem in love life or married life.
Navamsa is the 9th Division of your Horoscope. So it is obviously related with your Fortune and it will give indication about How Much Fortunate you are. It is also the Main Divisional chart for Marriage and Relationship. So How can you Improve your Marriage through Navamsa ? You Should Stregthen the 7th Lord of Navamsa. Remember, it is more important to strengthen the 7th Lord than planets placed in the 7th house. You Should Also make the Lagna Lord of Navamsa Strong.
But remember, Strengthen Always does not mean Wearing gemstone. You can also strengthen the planets by Worshipping the Gods of that Planet. For Example, You Can Worship Lord Hanuman for Mars, Durga Mata for Rahu, Krishna for Moon, Ganesha for Ketu, Lord Ram or Shiva for Sun, Lord Vishnu for Mercury etc.
