Mars & Mercury: Mars and Venus in Marriage, Chapter V, Part 5


Dr. Shanker Adawal

The astrologer looks for the compatibility of temperament and not its identity. Astrologically three `natures’ are recognized viz. Deva (or divine), Manusha (or human) and Rakshasa (or diabolical or devilish). The `divine’ (Deva) represents piety, goodness of character and generous instincts; the human (Manusha) is a mixture of good and bad; and the devilish (Rakshasa) suggests hatred, contempt, meanness and mischief. These different `natures’ are supposed to be revealed by the birth constellation. A distaste for piety and religious disposition cannot easily mate with piety and religious nature. A difference in beliefs and dogmas cannot always be balanced by sex compatibility. Hence one born in a divine temperament is not allowed to marry a person born in a `devilish’ temperament. Marriage between a `devilish’ man and a `divine’ or a `human’ girl is permissible under certain circumstances. The belief is, marriage between `prohibited natures, results in disharmony, separation and divorce. Equally great prominence is given to what is called Yoni Kuta to judge compatibility of sex. The theory behind this consideration seems to be that as the human embryo in the course of its development passes through various stages of evolution such as those of mammals, quadrupeds, etc. the `urges’ and `tendencies’ of certain animals are supposed to gain dominance in the nature of man. It is supposed that each degree of the zodiac expresses the degree of evolution of the individual concerned. This Yoni-kuta takes into account the sexual aspects of marriage and indicates the sex affinities.

So far as the health compatibility is concerned the astrologer classifies the human constitution, into vata (windy), pitta (bilious) and sleshma (phlegmatic) divisions. This is also the classification according to Ayurveda or the Hindu system of medicine. A boy with a predominantly windy or phlegmatic or bilious constitution should not marry a girl of the same type. The girl should belong to a different `constitution’.

According to the stanza current amongst astrological Savants “if Mars is in the 2nd, 12th, 4th, 7th and 8th houses (either from the Ascendant, or the Moon or Venus) in the horoscope of the female, the death of the husband will occur; similar situation of Mars in the husband’s horoscope causes the death of the wife.” It should be noted that the strength of the dosh in 2, 12, 4, 7 and 8 is the ascending order. In assessing the quantum of Dosha, Bhavas and not Rashis should be taken. The Dosha of Mars is said to get neutralized or minimized in the following circumstances :-

Mars in the 2nd is bad provided such 2nd house is any other than Gemini and Virgo; in the 12th the dosh is produce when such 12 house is any other than Taurus and Libra; in the 4th house Mars causes Dosha provided the house falls in any sign other than Aries and Scorpio; when the 7th is other than Capricorn and Cancer, the Dosha is given rise to; and Mars gives bad effects in the 8th, provided the 8th is any other than Sagittarius and Pisces. In Aquarius and Leo, Mars produces no Dosha whatsoever. The Dosha is counteracted by the conjunction of Mars and Jupiter or Mars and the Moon.
