As per the Vedic astrology, there are 12 houses in each horoscope wherein the 5th house plays the primary role in predicting your love marriage astrology and the 7th house is the house of marriage in your horoscope. The 2nd, 5th, and 8th house too impact certain aspects of your marital life.

Venus is considered to be the dominant planet that majorly influences your marriage prospects. The position, conjunction and the aspect relationship of each planet in this house impact the married life of an individual and also the nature of the prospective life-partner.

If Venus (the Lord of 7th house), Mars (the Lord of 2nd house), and Moon are influencing your 7th house directly, and are strong, it indicates the quality of your married life.  In the case of males, the planet Venus indicates love, similarly, for females, the planet Mars indicates boyfriends while the presence of Jupiter indicates a prospective husband.

Different combinations of planets and 12 houses lay grounds for different circumstances. Let’s understand some of the most prominent combinations to get your love marriage prediction and check if you have the love marriage yog in kundali or not.

Different Combinations for Arranged Marriages


  • If you’re also eager to get your prediction by date of birth whether love or arranged marriage for yourself, check the position of Venus in your horoscope. If it’s placed in the 3rd, 10th, 11th or the house of ascendants, it means that you’ll have an arranged marriage.

  • Similarly, if the 2nd, 7th, and the 11th house lords are combined and these houses are then connected with the Sun or the Moon, it gives rise to arranged marriages that will likely be arranged via parents.

  • Another possibility of arranged marriage is when the 7th house Lord aka Venus gets placed in the 8th, 10th, 11th, or the 12th house, while the Lord of the Ascendant aka Lagnesh is placed in the 3rd, 6th, 8th, 10th, 11th, or the 12th house.

  • Again, if the Lord of the Ascendant gets placed in the 9th house, and the 9th house Lord is placed in the 10th house in conjunction with the Lord of the 10th house, it indicates an arranged marriage. However, if the Lord of the Ascendant doesn’t combine with the 7th house Lord, the probability of arrange marriage gets higher.
