Apropos to my previous article about marriage and relationships; I am trying to share and explain my understandings and observations regarding timing of marriage. In Brihat Parashara Hora Shashtra (Chapter 20), some planetary combinations (Yogas) are mentioned about the marital age. However, exact identification of the marriage giving Dasa is not mentioned in BPHS. In tenth chapter of Phaladeepika though, Sage Mantreshawara has given some hints regarding the marriage time. In this article, I will try to explore and explain these Yogas for the benefit of the reader.
First, I will be taking a few verses mentioned in Chapter 20 of Brihat Parashara Hora Shashtra. The Venus is considered as general significator for wife and marriage in female horoscopes; while for female Horoscope, this role is assigned to Jupiter. Therefore, wherever the Sage mentioned the role of Venus as significator for wife and marriage – it is to be taken as Jupiter for female horoscope.
