Yogas for Marriage & Progeny!


8th Yoga for Love Marriage

Love marriages are not uncommon now-a-days in India. Love or romance is seen from 5th house and marriage from 7th house. When 5th & 7th house and/ or their lords are linked, one could get married after romance if prevailing dasha permits. Specific yogas for such marriages are:

1. 5th lord has intimate relation by association, aspect or mutual exchange with 7th house and its lord.

2. Lagnesh & Moon conjoins 7th lord in a Kendra.

3. Moon conjoins 7th lord and Venus is aspected by Mars.

4. Mars, Venus & Rahu posited in 7th house.

5. Moon & Venus in 7th are aspected by Mars/ Rahu.
