Really, no body knows why marriages break! You may say a marriage breaks when there is no love between the couple. If that is the case, love marriages should not break. But we see several love marriages also breaking soon after the marriage. So, the reason why a marriage breaks is beyond human comprehension. Basically in all broken marriages, we can observe development of hostile atmosphere between the couple which leads to misunderstandings and finally separation. Astrology can tell us why such a painful situation occurs in the life of a couple.
Separation or divorce in Astrology
Ancient texts on Indian Astrology mention some important combinations which lead to disappointment in the married life. In Astrology, 7th house and its lord represents spouse and partners. Sage Parasara in his ‘Brihat Parasara Hora Sastra’ describes the following points about 7th house:
Separation is indicated when 7th house lord is in the house of its enemy or if 7th lord is debilitated or 7th lord is receiving aspects from malefics or is in ‘astangatva’. Astangatva represents close conjunction with Sun.
Separation is indicated if 7th lord is posited in 6th, 8th or 12th houses and is weak. Here weakness represents conjunction with bad planets.
Separation is indicated if 7th house is occupied by malefic planets or aspected by malefic planets.
Varahamihira in his ‘Bruhajjataka’ adds: If there is a mixer of good and bad planets in the 7th house, the native will have more than one marriage. This view is also supported by Kalayna Varma in his ‘Saaravali’.
Mantreswara in his ‘Phaladeepika’ says: If Venus or 7th lord is hemmed between malefics, or conjunct with malefics or aspected by malefics, it is a sign of losing the partner.
Kalyana Varma in his ‘Saaraavali’ says: Mars in 7th house leads to loss of partner and if that Mars is aspected by Saturn, then death of partner can be predicted.
Let us remember, in Hindu Vedic Astrology, the planets Saturn, Mars, Sun, Rahu and Kethu are considered natural malefics where as the planets Jupiter and Venus are natural benefics. When Saturn or Rahu involve with 7th house affairs, we can say the spouse has past life debts to be repaid in terms of marriage relationship. Saturn and Rahu represent separation, sometimes owing to the death of the spouse. If Mars is involved, then it denotes one of the partners becoming aggressive and wild thus spoiling the relation.

Case I: A male born on Jun 20, 1975 at 13.23, at Hong Kong
The Ascendant is Virgo. The 7th house becomes Pisces whose lord Jupiter posited in the own house. This represents that this native’s wife is strong and endowed with leadership qualities. Mars is also joined with Jupiter thus making her stubborn and quarrelsome. Observe that the 7th lord is in conjunction with the malefic planet Mars. Also this 7th lord is receiving 10th aspect from Saturn, another first class malefic. More over 7th lord is also in aspect from Rahu. Saturn and Rahu represent separation. So, the marriage was broken. Also Saturn is becoming 5th lord representing children in this horoscope. Saturn is in turn receiving 4th aspect from Mars. More over, Saturn is conjunct with Sun which is a bad combination. This combination represents loss of children. These factors made the native to be separated from his wife and son.
Case II: A B Vajpayee born on Dec 25, 1924 at 5.02, at Gwalior, IndiaThis is the horoscope of Mr Atal Bihari Vajpayee, our former Prime Minister and BJP central leader. The Ascendant and Moon sign is Scorpio. Hence the 7th house is Taurus whose lord is Venus posited in the Ascendant. This type of Venus promotes marriage. The note worthy point in this horoscope is 7th house hemmed between the two malefics Mars and Rahu. These planets represent that even if Vajpayee marries, his wife will not survive. Moreover, Kethu is aspecting 7th house which represents lack of interest in the married life which is carried from his past life and Rahu is aspecting the 7th lord Venus which represents separation. Also Saturn is posited in the natural 7th house. Saturn represents delay in getting married and separation if married. Such a native with these planetary combinations is better not to marry. Of course, as we know Vajpayee spent his entire life without marriage.
