Example 1 – John F. Kennedy 29th May 1917, 14:51, Brookline, MA, US

Married on – 12 September 1953

Vimshottari dasha – ascendant is aspected by Jupiter whereas Moon isn’t aspected by either Jupiter or Mercury and as moon being in 12th house Ascendant is most suitable to start Vimshottari dasha. Jupiter MD in D1 chart Jupiter is in 9th house aspecting ascendant 7th from 7th and he is also 7th lord. In Navamsha he is in 6th house aspecting 7th lord and Ascendant lord of navamsha thus Sun and Rahu. Moon AD in D1 moon is in 12th house of bed pleasures that is very vital in marital life (UL is also derived from 12th house) in D1 he is also giving Argala to 7th lord in D9 the same moon is giving Argala to D9 ascendant and in 7th from D9 ascendant lord and aspected by co-lord of 7th house of D9. Venus PD Venus in D1 is with 7th lord and giving Argala to ascendant lord and in D9 Venus is in ascendant with 7th lord and giving Argala to D9 ascendant lord. Mars SD mars in D1 are with ascendant lord and also aspecting UL from Graha Drishti. He is also lord of UL and in D9 Mars is giving Argala to ascendant as well as 7th lord (both 7th lords) and in 7th from ascendant lord of D9. Rahu PAD Rahu is giving Argala to ascendant in D1 and is aspecting D1 ascendant lord as well as lord of UL. In D9 Rahu in 2nd house is giving Argala to ascendant and also are 7th lord aspecting D9 Ascendant lord and DK Jupiter.

Narayan dasha – Libra/Virgo/Scorpio/Sagittarius/Gemini

Libra is aspected by DK Jupiter and in 12th from UL showing bed pleasures. Virgo is D1 ascendant 7th from 7th and in 11th from UL and AL. Scorpio have ownership of UL itself. Lord of Sagittarius is DK, Gemini have the most auspicious and favorable Ketu in it.

Navamsha ND – Aquarius/Pisces/Gemini/Taurus/Aries
Aquarius is 7th house. Pisces have UL and Ketu in Navamsha (Venus and Ketu are two planets capable of giving marriage in Narayan dasha or frankly saying in whole Jaimini System because Ketu is significator for UL and Venus for 7th house) Gemini is aspected by 7th lord Rahu and Ketu and UL. Taurus has ascendant lord Sun in it and Aries is aspected by A7 as well as Venus and 7th lord Saturn.

Transit – Jupiter was aspecting 2nd house from UL by Rashi and Graha Drishti and was over co-lord of UL Ketu. Saturn was aspecting 2nd from UL by Graha drishti and also was in aspect with 7th lord of natal chart in transit. Nodal axis was in 5-11 showing fulfillment of desires as Ketu was in 11th it gave marriage.

Example 2 – 8th January 1980, 11:43, Mumbai, Male

Married on – 13 December 2002

Vimshottari –in first sight moon seems powerful by association of Jupiter but being with Rahu and Mars he is considerably weak Jupiter is also retrograde along with all this moon is in last degrees of sign and also in 6th house thus we will start dasha from Ascendant.

Mercury/ Jupiter/Mars/Mercury/Rahu

Mercury is 7th lord and in D9 giving Argala to ascendant. Jupiter is aspecting mercury the 7th lord and giving Argala to ascendant in D9. Mars is aspecting UL as well as ascendant in D1 and in D9 is over ascendant to show the event and Rahu in D1 is aspecting 7th lord and by his 2nd aspect also aspecting 7th house and in Navamsha Giving Argala to 7th house and aspecting Venus as well as A7.

Narayan dasha – Sagittarius/Libra/Gemini/Aries/Virgo

Sagittarius has A7 and 7th lord in it. Libra is aspected by Ketu as well as Jupiter ascendant lord and in 2nd house from 7th house Argala sign. Gemini is 7th from A7 aspected by DK Saturn and 7th lord Mercury. Aries is aspected by UL as well as Ketu, and Virgo is 7th house itself with DK Saturn.

Navamsha ND – Sagittarius/Libra/Scorpio/Aquarius/Libra

Sagittarius is aspected by Venus, Libra is D9 ascendant having 7th lord Mars, Scorpio has Ketu in it; Aquarius has DK Saturn in it.

Transit – Jupiter was aspecting UL as well as his ascendant and Saturn was in 4th house aspecting 2nd house from his UL by Rashi aspect and was aspecting his Lagna. Double transit on Lagna 7th from 7th. Rahu Ketu was in 3-9 Axis Ketu over UL gave him marriage.

See in this chart Badhak from his Shree Lagna is in his 7th house being DK, Badhak house from his UL have Saturn DK and lord of that Badhak house is in 2nd from UL. Lord of SL is in 11th house of Hara with A8 and so many planets are in 6th house. His UL is aspected by Saturn and Mars by Graha aspect and Venus by Rashi aspect. See his 7th and 11th houses as Libra is in 8th house and Aquarius in 12th house in chart and see Venus AmK in 11th and retrograde DK Saturn in 7th house. And UL in Badhak house from AL and chart was not matched before marriage. The native was happy in his life living overseas once he married his lady love he is now in India jobless. Starving for money and career. He left studies after 8th and now his condition is very kind. But see tamas influence over his ascendant and ascendant lord and intelligent readers will get a hint what I want to say. Starving for even basic necessities from few years he wants to be millionaire.

Example 3 – 20th July 1992, 18:35, Delhi, Female

Married on – 14th November 2010

Vimshottari Dasha – her moon is in own sign with Mercury but in Maran Karak Sthan and Debilitated in navamsha whereas Ascendant is aspected by Jupiter thus we will start vimshottari dasha from ascendant.


Venus is in 7th house in her chart and giving Argala to Lagna in D9, Saturn in her birth chart is in mutual aspect with 7th lord and in navamsha giving Argala to Lagna. Mars is aspecting his 7th lord in Lagna and giving Argala to D9 ascendant. Rahu is in ascendant in D1 as well as in D9.

Narayan dasha – Cancer/Gemini/Scorpio/Libra/Gemini

Cancer has the 7th lord mercury, Gemini is the 7th house, and Scorpio is aspected by DK as well as 7th lord Mercury and UL. Libra is 11th sign aspected by A7 as well as significator of marriage for female chart Jupiter.

Navamsha ND – Sagittarius/Taurus/Gemini/Aquarius/Cancer

Sagittarius is the 7th house having Ketu in it. Taurus is aspected by DK mercury. Gemini is D9 ascendant, Aquarius lords AL and its co-lord is in D9 ascendant. Cancer is again aspected by AL and A7 in navamsha. Arudh shows our image in society and It is very important in society what does image means with respect to D9 it is marriage thus in D9 the sign having AL can also give marriage. As aspected by the same as we can see in last to Dashas of Aquarius and Cancer they both either have AL or aspected by AL and A7 and Venus.

Transit – Jupiter was in 2nd from UL aspecting 7th house by Graha Drishti, Saturn was in and from A7 and aspecting 7th house by Graha aspect thus there was a dual transit on 7th house showing marriage and as nodal axis was also in 1-7 having Ketu in 7th marriage fructified in this time frame.

She was married when she was 18, 7th house have debilitated Ketu the 12th lord and Venus significator of 7th house along with sun, Sun is 9th house lord and Venus is 11th and 7th house lord showing due to some mistakes of the girl her parents married her as soon as possible. But as being an astrologer we have some responsibilities and one of them is hiding precious information about their clients too. She had 2 male children till now see influence of male planets on her 5th and 7th house and also on 9th house next children also seems to be male but as Rahu Ketu axis is in 7th house it seems difficult now.

Example 4 – 17th November 1979, 13:28, Delhi, Male

Married on – 29th September 2009

Vimshottari Dasha – as ascendant is aspected by Jupiter and moon isn’t aspected by either Jupiter or mercury we will start dasha from ascendant.


Saturn in D1 is ascendant lord giving Argala to 7th house as well as 7th lord. In D9 Saturn is in ascendant being ascendant lord and also giving Argala to 7th lord on D9. Jupiter in D1 is in 7th house and in D9 giving Argala to 7th house and 7th lord. Sun in D1 is 7th lord and in D9 is in 7th house.

Narayan dasha – Aries/Pisces/Gemini/Libra/Pisces

Aries is aspected by A7 as well as 7th lord and its lord is in 7th house, Pisces is 11th from UL and is aspected by Ascendant lord Saturn and its lord Jupiter is in 7th house. Lord of Gemini is with Sun who is 7th lord as well as DK and Venus. Libra having Shree Lagna shows marriage and is also aspected by UL.

Navamsha ND – Gemini/Cancer/Leo/Gemini/Capricorn
Gemini is 6th house whose lord is in 9th house this shows marriage but fate of marriage will make the scenario clearer. Cancer is the 7th house. Having DK sun, Leo is the 8th house aspected by A7, UL, Venus and Ketu. Gemini is 6th house aspected by Bhrigu Bindu we will see its use later; Capricorn is the ascendant having Ketu and Venus.

Transit – Jupiter is aspecting UL from Rashi aspect and Graha aspect as well. Saturn is aspecting 2nd from UL by rashi aspect and is in 8th house and they both are making dual transit over his 7th lord sun in transit. Rahu Ketu is in 6-12 axis showing punishment is soon to come after Bhoga. Rahu in 12th and in trine to UL shows marriage.

AL and A7 are in same house and UL is in 7th from both of them the same is the condition in Navamsha. But see his 7th house Having Jupiter Rahu and Mars in D1 and Rahu and sun in D7, 7th lord in D1 as well as in D9 is in 10th house see the presence of Rahu in 7th house in both rashi and navamsha. DK sun and AK Venus is not mutual friends. In Navamsha AK in ascendant shows another path for the soul. 2nd house from his UL in D1 is Gemini that As per Jaimini is sure sign for second marriage lord of UL and 2nd there from is in 10th house from ascendant but with Gulika and Maandi and 7th lord sun is also there this case shows the havoc created by Gulika in horoscope. Being in the sign of Scorpio this is even more dangerous. Now this same is happening with A7 and 7th from UL. 2nd lord from UL in navamsha is exalted but retrograde behaving like debilitated. We will continue this case with wife of the native as next example.

Example 5 – 15th July 1982, 17:35, Karnal, Female

Married on – 29th September 2009

Moon is aspected by Jupiter and ascendant is aspected by Mercury. There are 7 planets in quadrant to ascendant whereas only one in quadrant to Moon thus we will initiate the dasha from ascendant.


Sun is in 7th house in D1 and giving Argala to ascendant in D9. Jupiter in D1 is ascendant lord in 11th house giving Argala to ascendant and aspecting 7th house as well as 7th lord. Ketu is in ascendant in D1 chart and in D9 he is giving Argala to ascendant as well as 7th house.

Narayan Dasha – Libra/Pisces/Virgo/Capricorn/Aquarius

Libra is having significator of marriage for female charts Jupiter in it, Pisces lords A7, Virgo is aspected by 7th house as well as A7, and Capricorn is 7th from UL and aspected by 12th house that is very vital in married life. Aquarius is having Shree Lagna; along with this it is also aspected by Jupiter and UL.

Navamsha ND – Libra/Gemini/Capricorn/Capricorn/Scorpio

Libra is having Venus in it. Like Venus moon is also very vital for marriage both being watery planets play a major role in the same after all marriage is unity of mind and emotions too. Venus is also DK. Gemini is aspected by UL, Capricorn is 2nd from UL aspected by 7th and 1st house of D9, Scorpio is having Ketu in own house.

Transit –
Jupiter is aspecting UL from Graha Drishti and 2nd from UL by rashi drishti, Saturn was aspecting 7th house from Rashi drishti as well as Graha Drishti, And Nodal axis was in 2-8 having Ketu over UL showing marriage time.

See DK of one is AK of another and vice-versa showing they were soul mates meaning their souls have to learn something from each other. But what happened. From UL of male ascendant of female is in 8th house and from UL of female ascendant of male is in 8th. Moon of female native is in Aries that is exaltation sign of Male’s 7th lord sun showing she brought prosperity with her. And trine from Venus and Sun (Occupants of 7th house) in navamsha is the sign Libra where Moon of male is placed in that shows perfect moon sign match in both of the charts. But what about ascendant the seat of intelligence that is a sure mismatch. See Nodal axis in 1-7 in both the charts with both having Ketu in ascendant and Rahu in 7th. And cluster of planets in 7th house in both charts. Now focus on the female chart one some points. UL is in 12th from AL in D1 charts shows rejection from spouse and due to that extra-marital relationship. Moon and Mars is together in 4th house in D9 in female chart sowing lack of happiness from marriage. Moon is in trine from Jupiter showing although she is religious and not inclined towards extra-marital relationships. Due to 6-8 between A7 and AL it shows due to lack of conjugal bliss between husband and wife she moved towards illicit relationships. Her UL is also with A6. Lord of her UL moon is in 5th house but aspected by Mars in D1 and with mars in 4th house in D9 and 2nd lord from UL sun is in 7th house where he naturally becomes debilitated and with Rahu in eclipse. That same Sun is AK showing hard lesson that have to be learnt.

When male native came to the scribe he reported wife left home at 15th April 2015

Male chart –- Saturn/Venus/Jupiter/Jupiter/Saturn

Saturn in D1 is in 8th house Marak from 7th house being lord of ascendant showing effect of 8th house will be hampered and 6th house will be boosted resulted in separation from wife and end of marital relationships. He by his cold aspect is aspecting A7 cooling down physical relationship between them and also aspected and from UL from Graha as well as Rashi drishti resulting in break in marriage. Venus being lord of UL is in 7th house of opposition from UL and is severely afflicted by Sun and Mercury and 3rd aspect of Saturn and 4th aspect of Mars. He is also Dig Bal less there showing lack of home comforts. When homemaker is not there how a man can be comfortable in home. Jupiter lord of hara from UL that is involved in Guru Chandal and Kuja Dosha in 7th house made his work in the same time and being in 4th from 4th disturbed marital bliss and home happiness. We are not going into Narayan dasha but readers are advised to check the same for better clarity on the subject to limit the size of paper I am not going into the same.

Female chart – Moon/Rahu/Jupiter/Jupiter/Mercury

Moon is lord of UL afflicted by Mars but also aspected by Jupiter but as he is with Mars in D9 too his effect was sure over him resulting in havoc. Rahu is making eclipse in 7th house and in 12th from UL. Jupiter is in 8th house in Navamsha showing break of marriage and marital bliss too as he in marak house from 7th house in D9 and bad house from D9 ascendant. Mercury the Badhak lord is in 7th house with DK and in Navamsha is debilitated showing the event.

We can see highly afflicted 7th house its lord and karaka in both the chart and also can see how a mismatch chart have made more havoc.

Male native reported he caught her wife in extra-marital relationship red handed on 26th January 2014

In female chart – Moon/Moon/Saturn/Moon/Jupiter

Readers can see the role of moon here showing her dissatisfaction have led to this in this chart moon is lord of UL and severely afflicted as we have seen it earlier. Here in her D9 moon is in trine to Jupiter and we should remember the classic story of abduction of wife of Jupiter by Moon and here in this D9 moon being lord of 3rd house copulation is in 4th house place of copulation with Mars in Leo sign showing copulation with a young men unmarried in a royal place or something like forest or cave. In modern context in camp houses or old houses can be counted in the same. Mars also being 7th lord and Moon 3rd lord in conjunction in 7th house confirms this to a great extent. In D9 moon is in 5th house of love. Saturn being lord of A7 in D9 is controller of sexual desires and in D1 he is afflicting 7th house by his 10th aspect and 7th lord and 7th karak and DK as well. DK and karak of 7th both being in 7th house with Rahu have worsen the condition to a great extent and also have made something very much like Karko Bhava Nasay. Saturn is also 8th lord from UL showing his role in break of marriage. Jupiter in D1 is in 11th house that shows physical relationship out of marriage by native’s own wish. He is lord of A7 in mutual aspect with lord of UL bringing love in marriage in a bad way due to affliction of Jupiter by Rahu and Moon by Mars. In Navamsha he is in 8th over UL although being lord of UL but being aspected by Sun depositor of this adulterous combination of Moon and Mars it have just worsen the situation.

In this way marital life and related matters can be found using Vedic astrology. All these charts have so many other scopes of justification that readers should try themselves to enhance their own knowledge. The best remedy for marital discord is to keep fast on the day rules by lord of UL. By a good match making 50% of marital disaster can be lessen down.

May god bless us all with wisdom and light
