After prostrating to my Nadi Guru Shri R.G.Rao, Acharya Madhva, my Kula Devatha and my Ishta Devatha,I am going to delineate a new method of predicting marriage as per Nadi Astrology.
We all know that marriages are made in heaven but some marriages are auspicious or happy marriages and some have difficult marriage life. Traditional Astrology uses Lagna based predictions. Here normally we consider 7th house from Lagna, its lord,2nd house and its lord and 11th house and its lord are considered along with Karaka of marriage, Shukra/Venus. But in Nadi Astrology, Guru/Jupiter is the karaka of Jeeva and indicates male natives. In female natives, Shukra/Venus is Stree/female Karaka but Jeeva Karaka remains the same ie., Guru/Jupiter. Already there is double transit theory of Guru/Jupiter and Shani/Saturn is famous and we can agree with this Sutra as an almost accurate method to predict a marriage.
Now let us know one thing is that Astrology is basically Indian whether it is traditional or Nadi Astrology. So now let us see the term Marriage.
What is Marriage?It is a Karmic bond between a male and a female as agreed by the parents and relatives of both parties. Then the marriage engagement will be performed where the exact date of marriage will be fixed by the family priest/Astrologer.
Now next is on the marriage day, the bridegroom will tie what is called as Mangala Sutra to Bride. Now, what is this Mangala Sutra? As per our Shastras, Mangala Sutra is a Holi thread immersed in turmeric powder solution which is tied with a piece of turmeric.So this will be tied by the bridegroom to the bride’s neck. In modern days the Mangala Sutra is made up of small black beats with golden Tali ( 2 in numbers ).
Anyhow, let us come to the point that what is Mangala Sutra. It has a holy thread and a turmeric piece.The Karaka for Holy thread is Ketu and the Karaka for turmeric is Guru/Jupiter. This is because marriage is a spiritual event where Vedic Mantras are chanted followed by Havan. In the marriage after tieing the Mangala Sutra, both the bride and bridegroom have to walk 7 steps as advised by the priest which is called as Saptapadi. Now, who is the Karaka for this event? Again, Ketu. So the marriage will take place when transit Guru, Shani and Ketu transiting or aspecting natal Guru/Shukra and in a female chart, Kuja/Mars as he is Pati Karaka. So it is very clear that marriage event will not happen without the Blessings of Ketu. Sometimes transit Ketu will be in a Rashi whose Lord is connected to Karaka of Patni or Karaka of Pati ie., Shukra or Kuja. Sometimes on the marriage engagement day, the above said planets confirm the marriage.
To confirm this, let me try to explain through some real example charts below :
1) Male Chart :
This is the chart of a male who got engaged on 1/1/2006.
For the marriage to take place as per Nadi Astrology, transit Shani must be linked to Patni Karaka Shukra 1st, then transit Guru must be on natal Shukra or its trines. Finally transit Ketu must have a link to natal Shukra. This male native’s marriage engagement took place on 1/1/2006 at 16-30 Hrs.
Now let us see the planetary transits on this day.
Transit chart on 1/1/2006 at 16-30 Hrs.: Chart-2
Here transit Shani was in Karka Rashi but retrograde, so it must be considered from Mithuna Rashi also. So this Shani from Mithuna Rashi is in trine to natal Shukra in Tula Rashi. Next transit Guru was in Tula Rashi transiting over natal Shukra. Finally, transit Ketu was in Kanya Rashi which is in Kendra to Retrograde Shani whom we are considering from Mithuna Rashi. When this is the case, both Shani and Ketu are to be considered as in conjunction as per Nandi Nadi principles. Thus all the requirements for marriage were set.
Chart-3 Female Wife of the above male chart:
Now let us look at the female chart whom she got married to the male chart 1) :
In a female chart, for the purposes of marriage, we have to consider Kuja or Mangal. So in this chart, Kuja is placed in Dhanu Rashi. Her Jiva Karaka Guru is in Vrischika Rashi. In her chart, Shani, the Karma Karaka is exalted in Tula Rashi. Marriage is also a past life Karma. Transit Guru was transiting over Tula Rashi, hence over-exalted Shani. This transit Guru was also aspecting her natal Chandra indicating after the marriage she will move to a different place. Now transit Shani as it was retrograde in Karka Rashi will be considered from Mithuna Rashi also. So this retrograde Shani from Mithuna Rashi was directly aspecting Pati Karaka Kuja in Dhanu Rashi. Transit Guru in Tula Rashi was in 11th from Pati Karaka Kuja. Finally transit Ketu was in Kanya Rashi which was in Kendra to both transit retrograde Shani and Pati Karaka Kuja in Dhanu Rashi. So all the planetary arrangements were perfect for marriage.
The planetary configurations on the marriage engagement day were indicating the marriage will take place soon. So the marriage took place on 10/5/2006.
Here is the transit chart on 10/5/2006.: Chart-4 ( Marriage Chart-1 )
In the marriage chart, transit Shani was in Kendra to Patni Karaka Shukra of the male chart, Guru was retrograde and was transiting over natal Shukra and transit Ketu was in Kanya Rashi whose sign dispositor Budha is with Patni Karaka Shukra in the male chart, thus satisfying all the conditions for the marriage.
When we consider female chart 2), transit Shani was in Karka Rashi whose powerful Kendra is in Mesha Rashi and the female chart’s Pati Karaka Kuja has a trinal aspect on Mesha Rashi. transit Guru ( retrograde ) was in 11th to Pati Karaka Kuja and transit Ketu was in Kendra to Kuja, thus satisfying all the conditions of marriage.
Let me take another 2 charts.
Chart-5 ) Male :
In this male chart, Jiva Karaka Guru is exalted in Karka Rashi and Patni Karaka Shukra is exalted in Meena Rashi with Budha and Kuja. This trinal linking of Shukra with Guru indicates the marriage is promised.
Now let us look at the chart of his wife :
In this chart,Jiva Karaka Guru is in Kumbha Rashi and 11th from him is Pati Karaka Kuja in Dhanu Rashi ruled by Guru.So the marriage is promised to this female native.
Now let us see the planetary arrangements on the day of marriage.
Chart-7, Marriage Chart-2 :
Now considering the above transit chart in the case of male chart 5), transit Shani was retrograde in Kanya Rashi aspecting his natal Patni Karaka Shukra in Meena Rashi. Transit Guru was in Kumbha Rashi whose sign Lord Shani is in Simha Rashi ( Retrograde ). So considering this from previous house Karka Rashi,it is in trine to natal Patni Karaka Shukra.Finally, transit Ketu was in Mithuna Rashi which was in Kendra to natal Patni Karaka Shukra, thus satisfying all the conditions for the marriage.
Now let us consider the same transit chart for the female chart 6). Here transit Shani ( Retrograde ) in Kanya Rashi is in Kendra to Pati Karaka Kuja who is in Dhanu Rashi. Transit Guru in Kumbha was in 3rd from Pati Karaka Kuja in Dhanu Rashi whose Lord Guru is also in Kumbha Rashi. This means Pati Karaka Kuja’s sign Lord Guru is in Kumbha Rashi in her natal Chart and transit Guru was transiting over this Guru.Finally, transit Ketu which was in Mithuna Rashi was aspecting directly Pati Karaka Kuja in her natal chart, thus confirming all the conditions for the marriage.
Thus we can analyse or predict the marriage of a male native through the Patni Karaka Shukra and in female chart through Pati Karaka Kuja and the transits of Shani, Guru and Ketu linking to the said planets or their sign dispositors.
For Marriage Prospects, Native 7th house and the 7th lord Must be Strong, well placed and free from affliction. Venus is karaka for the wife and Jupiter is karaka for the Husband – they must be free from affliction in both D1 and D9 chart.
Check the Venus Ashtakavarga Chart , it should be free from the Bindus or Marks of Eunuchs, Points around 5 is Blessing and Highly favorable for Marriage prosperity, Below than 5 or average (4), and 3 and 2 points are considered as Bad for marriage Prosperity.
During Transit of Nodes, Mars, Saturn in 7th house from Ashtakavarha of Venus- Issue in Marriage will pick a spark. Same way check the 7th house from Moon for any issue or prosperity in marriage.
Any Favorable transit of Planet Like Jupiter, 7th lord or Lagana transiting in 7th house from Venus and Moon can give clue to get married in their Dasha period.
If the 7th house from Lagana is either in Mars house or Mars Amsa (Navamsa) and if the planet owning the Amsa of the 7th house be either weak or eclipsed by Nodes, the Spouse(wife or Husband) will be notorious or vicious in youth.But if the same be placed in the Rasi or Amsa of a beneficial planet, Wife or Husband will be very kind and Strong characterized. Beneficial aspect on same also acts as Strong moral values and character.
For Timing of Marriage, Check the 7th lord from Rasi Chart is having any link with the transiting Jupiter and with the Lagna lord transit.
Transit of Jupiter and Saturn Should Form a link with the 7th house of 7th Lord of Rasi chart and in addition – Both the planet Should be well placed or Favorable from both Venus and Moon. Either they are in Trine from Venus or Moon or they are having strong link With the 7th lord from both Venus and Moon.
If lord of the 7th house is associated with Venus, its MD or AD may lead to Marriage.
MD and AD period of the Lord the 2nd bhava Lord Rasi also a major influencing factor for the marriage.
AD Lord Should have a link with Navamsa 7th house or 7th Lord and MD Lord Should have link Navamsa Lagana lord or with Lagnesh.
The Wife or Husband likely to be abandoned by her Husband or Wife if the 7th house from Lagana in case of male or first house in the case of a woman is either in Mars house or Mars amsa.
If in the Male Horoscope the 7th house from Venus has a planet aspect-ed by a Powerful Mars, we can say he will marry a Virgin Widow, in addition, he should also have his 7th house strong and free from affliction.
If in the Male Horoscope, the 5th house from Venus aspect-ed by Mars is strong and free from Affliction, we can say that the widow has given birth to children that are living.
If Venus Happens to be the lord Rasi where in Gulika is posted and occupies strong position as 10 or 4th from it, he will have desire for unnatural desire for Sexual enjoyment i.e – Homosexuality, Lesbian, gay sex etc
Venus and the 7th house Indicates first marriage, and if we are well known that First one is separated – take the Planets in 7th or planets associated with Venus. The Strongest will determine the 2nd wife.
In a female chart Take Saturn in the place of Venus as per prashana Marga. For Remarriage, usually, Happen when there are many planets in the 7th and 11th house – Mercury is Karka for Having a desire for two partners.
When Lagana will be a common sign or when the lord of the 7th and Moon occupy a common sign or Navamsa. when Sun and Mars are occupying the 7th house or both are in Navamsa of the 7th house having amsa of both.
The lords of 7 either from Lagana or Moon and Venus are Favorably and strongly posted, there will be chances of three marriages. If the lord of 7 or Venus is in exaltation and two or More planets occupy 7th house, there will be three or more marriages.

Complete System of Prediction
Vedic astrology is replete with many kinds of tools and techniques which aid in predicting events in the life of a native and pin-point the time of their fructification. Even a single Sloka or a small set of 3 or 4 Slokas may contain in them the germ of a complete system of prediction. While studying Phaladeepikacertain Slokas of Chapter 20 that deal with the transit effects of Vimshottari Dasa and Bhukti lords attracted my attention.
Phaladeepika Slokas, Chapter 20
Whichever Bhava from the natal Ascendant the Dasa lord moves through in his transit identical with his own, exaltation or friendly sign, the concerned Bhava will be strengthened, provided the Dasa lord is strong in the natal chart.
When the Dasa lord is weak in the natal chart and he transits a sign identical with his debilitation or inimical sign or when he gets eclipsed by the Sun, the effects of that house from the natal Ascendant will get spoiled.
When the Dasa lord during his transit moves in his debilitation or inimical sign or gets eclipsed by the Sun, the Dasa will yield unfavorable results. Contrary to this, if the Dasa lord moves in his exaltation, own or friendly signs or becomes retrograde during his transit the Dasa will produce benefic results.
During a particular Dasa, the results of the houses reckoned from the natal Moon-sign will come to pass whenever the Dasa lord transits through them.
These Slokas suggest that when a certain Vimshottari Dasa and Bhukti is running in the life of a native, then the transits of the Dasa and Bhukti lords can be utilized to confirm the event promised by them in the natal chart and also to zero-in on the time of fructification of the event. Similarly, the transits of planets on the natal positions of the Dasa and Bhukti lords also have say on the manifestation of results. As with all methods of Vedic astrology, the dicta laid down by the Rishis should be taken as a broad guideline and more precise rules with empirical analysis need to be identified. With these pointers I have analysed a number of horoscopes of people who have experienced a variety of events, both good and bad, and found that the method works amazingly.
First of all the events promised by the planets in the natal chart should be analysed minutely in order to successfully apply this method. The good or bad results which the Dasa and Bhukti lords portend from their natal positions, lordships and association should be judged properly. While doing this, both the Ascendant and the natal Moon-sign should be considered. Similarly, the lord of the Nakshatra in which a planet is placed as per Vimshottari Dasa system should also be studied as it plays a prominent role in shaping the results. Various benefic and malefic combinations enumerated in the classical texts should be applied carefully before drawing a conclusion regarding the potential events that can manifest in the life of the native during a given Dasa and Bhukti period. After that, the following rules regarding the transit of Dasa and Bhukti lords and also other planets should be applied to pin-point the event. This method is particularly helpful when at least one among the Dasa or Bhukti lords is a slow moving planet. Nevertheless, it works well for fast moving planets also.
(a) Observe the houses transited and aspected by the Dasa and Bhukti lords both from the natal Ascendant and the natal Moon-sign. The events connected with these houses will manifest during the Dasa-Bhukti period.
(b) Observe the natal planets on whom the Dasa and Bhukti lords move or cast their aspect in transit vis-a-vis their lordships and natural Karakattwas. The events connected with these planets will manifest during the Dasa-Bhukti period.
(c) Transit Dasa or Bhukti lord moving over or aspecting a particular combination in the natal chart may manifest the results of that combination.
(d) When the Dasa or Bhukti lord moves on or aspects a house of which it has natural Karakattwa the results of that house will manifest significantly.
(e) When the Dasa and Bhukti lords move over or aspect their natal positions then the period will give the results promised by them in the natal chart.
(f) When either the Dasa or Bhukti lord is a natural benefic and indicates a happy event in transit while at the same time the other lord is a natural malefic and indicates unfavourable result in transit, then the native will experience both results during that period. For example, events like marriage followed by immediate separation, or birth and death of a child etc.
Opposition and Conjunction
1) Dasa or Bhukti lord transiting the 9th house from the natal Ascendant or the Moon-sign may give happy occasions like marriage, child birth etc.
2) The Dasa and Bhukti lords coming into opposition in transit will give benefic results promised by their position in the natal chart.
3) When Dasa and Bhukti lords come together in transit in a beneficial house either from the natal Ascendant or from the natal Moon, then the native will experience the favorable results of these houses.
4) When transit Jupiter moves on natal Dasa or Bhukti lord, the native may experience happy events. Also, Dasa or Bhukti lord transiting on natal Jupiter may indicate happy events.
5) Transit Jupiter on or aspecting both Dasa or Bhukti lords will give happy events. 6) When Jupiter is either the Dasa or Bhukti lord and transits over the other planet while the said planet aspects or moves over natal Jupiter, the native will experience happy events.
7) The Dasa or Bhukti lord in transit moving over or receiving the aspect of natal Jupiter and Venus will give benefic results pertaining to the houses owned by him in the natal chart and also the houses influenced by him in transit.
8) When the Dasa or Bhukti lord transits natal Jupiter while transit Jupiter moves over the natal position of the Dasa or Bhukti lord, the native will experience benefic results.
9) When a Dasa or Bhukti lord is a natural malefic and transits over a beneficial house from the natal Ascendant or natal Moon while simultaneously either Jupiter or Venus is transiting over the natal position of the said planet, then the native will experience happy events.
10) When both Dasa and Bhukti lords join together in transit in the natal Ascendant or natal Moon-sign while transit Jupiter aspects their natal positions, then the native will experience happy events.
11) Transit Jupiter moving over the natal position of the Dasa or Bhukti lord or aspecting them in transit bestows favourable results on the native.
I have tested these rules successfully on more than 60 horoscopes and would like to demonstrate its applicability through an example horoscope.

The first part of this paper has dealt with the connection between the Dasa-Bhukti lords and transiting planets covering favourable results. There are other principles which can also be applied in deciphering unfavourable results to the Dasa-Bhukti lords against the transits of planets.
1) The Dasa and Bhukti lords portending evil results in the natal chart and joining together or coming in mutual opposition in transit in malefic houses from the natal Moon or the natal Ascendant will bring about evil results.
2) When the Dasa and Bhukti of malefic planets are running and one of them transits over the other, then the bad effect suggested in the natal chart will manifest itself.
3) When both the Dasa and Bhukti lords are natural malefics and form a formidable combination in the natal chart and one of them moves on or aspects that natal combination in transit while the other moves on or aspects the natal Ascendant, Moon-sign or the 10th house from them, the native will experience very bad results and commit grave mistakes due to poor judgment.
4) The Dasa or Bhukti lord transiting his debilitation sign and suffering combustion at the same time will give very bad results.
5) If the Dasa or Bhukti lord occupies his debilitation sign in a bad house in the natal chart and transits the same sign then that period will be unfavourable.
6) When a Dasa or Bhukti lord moves over a planet debilitated in the natal chart and also joins the same planet in transit, then the period will give bad results.
7) When either the Dasa or Bhukti lords is debilitated and posited in a bad house in the natal chart and the Dasa and Bhukti lords in transit move through or aspect that house, then the native will experience bad results as indicated by that house.
8) The Dasa and Bhukti lords both moving over or aspecting natal debilitated planets will bring bad results like loss of position etc.
Inimical Signs and Planets
9) When a Dasa or Bhukti lord in transit moves in an inimical sign joined by planets inimical to him, then that period will give bad results.
10) When Jupiter is either the Dasa and Bhukti lord and joins his enemies Venus or Mercury or both in transit in an inimical or debilitation sign, then the native will experience bad results.
11) The Dasa or Bhukti lord though moving in exaltation, friendly or own sign will give unfavourable results when combust at the same time.
Malefic Planets and Positions
12) Transit of malefic planets over Dasa or Bhukti lord who is disposed badly in the natal chart will give bad results.
13) Though a planet transits his exaltation, own or friendly sign that will not preclude him from giving unfavourable results if that sign happens to be the 6th, 8th or 12th house from the natal Ascendant or natal Moon.
14) When a Dasa or Bhukti lord transits his natal position joined by transiting malefic planets, the native will experience bad results.
15) When a Dasa or Bhukti lord moves in his debilitation sign or a malefic house from the natal Ascendant or natal Moon and is simultaneously influenced by transit Saturn and Mars either by conjunction or aspect then the period indicates unfortunate events.
16) When the Dasa or Bhukti lord moves over a natal planet that owns bad houses and joins the same planet in transit also, then the native will experience bad results of the house pertaining to that natal planet.
17) When the Dasa or Bhukti lord activates a formidable natal combination in transit and simultaneously suffers combustion or affliction by transiting malefic planets, the native experiences very bad results indicated by the natal combination.
18) When Saturn is one among the Dasa and Bhukti lords and generates sadesathein
transit (moves in the 12th, 1st or 2nd from natal Moon) while the other lord simultaneously indicates bad results in transit, the native will face difficult circumstances.
19) The Dasa or Bhukti lord joining transit Rahu or Ketu will be bad. This will be more pronounced when the planet moves through his inimical or debilitation sign.
20) Rahu transiting on natal position of Dasa or Bhukti lord will be bad.
21) When transit Rahu moves over a planet whose Dasa or Bhukti is current and that planet simultaneously transits his debilitation or inimical sign or suffers combustion, bad results follow.
22) When both the Dasa and Bhukti lords move over a bad natal combination joined with transit Rahu then that period will prove to be unfavourable.
23) When Rahu or Ketu is the Dasa or Bhukti lord, the transit or aspect of the Node over natal Ascendant or natal Moon may give bad results.
24) If the Dasa or Bhukti lord transits natal Rahu while transit Rahu simultaneously transits over the natal position of the said planet, then the native will experience bad results.
The same case discussed in Part I of this paper is examined in the light of these principles for unfavourable results.
Male: Born May 9, 1979 at 21h. 30m. 1ST at 16 N 17, 80 E 26.
Event XIV: Father’s Heart Attack and Bypass Surgery:
Rahu Dasa-Mars Bhukti >> The native’s father suffered a heart attack on October 2nd 2002 and had to undergo bypass surgery on November 11th 2002. The 9th house lodges Saturn in an inimical sign with Rahu while the 9th lord and Karaka Sun is exalted in the 5th with Mars and Mercury. The 9th is hemmed between benefics exalted Jupiter and Full Moon. Thus, though the 9th house is considerably afflicted, the 9th lord and Karaka Sun is fortified and the 9th house is protected by the benefic Argala.
Vimshottari: Both the Dasa and Bhukti lords are natural malefics. The Dasa lord Rahu is in the 9th with Saturn. Rahu occupies the Nakshatra of Venus who is in the 4th (8th from the 9th). The Bhukti lord Mars joins the 9th lord Sun in the 5th house along with Mercury. Mercury is a Maraka from the 9th house. Mars occupies the Nakshatra of Ketu who is in the 3rd house, the 7th from the 9th. Mars Bhukti is the last in Rahu Dasa coming under Dasa-chidram which usually gives bad results.
Transits: Dasa lord Rahu was transiting Taurus, the 9th house from the natal Moon. Bhukti lord Mars was transiting natal Saturn and Rahu in Leo, the 9th house from the natal Ascendant. Event XV: Father’s Hip Fracture and Operation: Jupiter Dasa-Ketu Bhukti >> On October 24th 2010, the native’s father fell down and had a hip fracture which was operated upon on November 2nd 2010 and a joint replacement done.
Vimshottari: Dasa lord Jupiter is in the 8th house, the 12th from the 9th and happens to be the 8th lord from the 9th house. Jupiter occupies the Nakshatra of Saturn who is in the 9th along with Rahu. The Bhukti lord Ketu is in the 3rd and should give the results of Saturn who occupies the 9th house with Rahu. Both Dasa and Bhukti lords are in Shastashtaka or mutually unfavorable positions.
Transits: The Dasa lord Jupiter was transiting Pisces, the 8th house from the natal 9th house. The Bhukti lord Ketu was transiting Gemini, his debilitation sign, aspecting the natal Ascendant.
Event XVI:Heart Problem to Mother: Jupiter Dasa-Venus Bhukti >> The native’s mother had to be hospitalized on September 28th 2011 as she was complaining of shortness of breath. It was diagnosed as heart failure because of reduced EF%.
Vimshottari: The Dasa lord Jupiter is the 4th lord from both the Ascendant and the Moon-sign. Though in his exaltation sign, Jupiter is in the 8th house from the Ascendant in the Nakshatra of Saturn who is placed in the 6th from the 4th in Leo which rules the heart. The Bhukti lord Venus is the 6th and 11th lord from Ascendant and occupies the 4th house aspected by 8th lord and Karaka Moon. From the 4th house Venus is the 3rd and 8th lord.
Transits: The Dasa lord Jupiter was in Aries, the 8th house from the natal Moon-sign aspecting Libra, the 8th from the 4th house from the natal Ascendant. The Bhukti lord Venus was transiting his debilitation sign Virgo where the natal Moon, the Karaka, is placed. Transit Venus was with transit Saturn, the Sun, Moon and Mercury aspecting Pisces, the 4th house from the natal Ascendant.
Event XVII: Father’s Death: Jupiter Dasa-Moon Bhukti >> The native’s father died on August 24th 2015.
Vimshottari:As explained earlier Jupiter is capable of causing harm to the native’s father. The Bhukti lord Moon is the 8th lord, 12th lord from the 9th house, and placed in the 2nd to 9th house, a Marakasthana. Further, the Moon occupies the Nakshatra of Mars who joins Pitrukaraka and 9th lord Sun and 10th lord Mercury, a Marakasthana lord from the 9th house.
Dasa lord Jupiter was transiting Leo, the 9th house from the ascendant where Saturn and Rahu are placed in the natal chart. Further, Jupiter was combust by his close proximity to transit Sun, the 9th lord and natural Karaka for father. Bhukti lord Moon was debilitated in Scorpio aspecting Taurus, the 9th house from the natal Moon-sign.
This case illustrates the principles given in Phaladeepika very well.
