Desh, Kaal and Patra (Place, Time and Individual) are the very basic principles of Astrology; and, have a great say in determining the actual course of action in one’s life. Therefore, besides the planetary disposition of your horoscope; the timing of marriage also depends upon self interest and inclination to get married. No planet or its influence is going to hold your hand and get you married; but the best can be expected, is the suitable opportunities and planetary support to get married within specific time frame. During earlier times, when the social norms and culture used to have a significant influence and/or compulsion (to get married as early as possible) in the life of a common man, it was comparatively easier to identify and predict the marriage timing very precisely. However, nowadays things have changed considerably;
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.
