Welcome Guest !
As per “Phala Deepika” by Mantreshwar, English Translation by Dr. G. S. Kapoor, on page 105, if Mars is in 7H produces a very strong Manglik Dosha due to which a person may lose his / her spouse. Manglik Dosha is formed when Mars occupies Lagna, 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th and 12th houses. It is however believed that if both husband and wife are Manglik, the Dosha gets cancelled. For matching of the horoscopes, we should match presence of natural malefics like Saturn, Rahu / Ketu and Sun besides Mars in both Male and Female horoscopes from Lagna, Moon and Venus, Karaka of Marriage. However, in the present article we will be discussing Mars in 7H.
As per ”Sri Sarwarthchintamani” by Sh B.Suryanarain Rao in Part II , if Mars occupies 7H ,he will be enjoying many women and will cause destruction to his family. As per “Jataka Bharan”, if Mars is in 7H and is aspected by Saturn without any benefic aspect a person’s spouse may die immediately after marriage.
As per “Phala Deepika”, on page 124, the person may lose his/her spouse if Mars is in Pisces in 7H (it is possible only in case of Virgo Lagna for which Mars is 8L placed in 7H giving such results). Again, he writes that in case of Capricorn Lagna if Mars and Saturn occupy 7H, the native will be blessed with a wife who is beautiful and of good character.
As per “Mansagri” by Sh Sitaram Jha, on page 98 in 1998 edition, if Mars is placed in 7H debilitated or in a inimical rashi the person’s wife may die. (here there is a contradiction from the interpretation given in “Phala Deepika” for Capricorn Lagna in which case Mars is debillated in 7H ) If Mars is exalted or in own house in 7H, the person may have affair with a spouse who is ugly looking and who misbehaves.
We can also analyze quality of married life from Upa Pada also. As per “Brihat Parashar Hora Shastra” as translated by Sh Girish Chand Sharma on pages 430 to 439 in 1999 edition if Upa Pada is occupied by a benefic,the person”s wife will be beautiful ,have good qualities and long lived. Similarly, if 2nd H from Upa Pada has the aspect of benefics or is a benefic sign, then a person is likely to have a good family life.
Due to all predictions given in most of the classics quoted above for Mars in 7H are negative in nature. So, we will try to analyze the quality of married life from Upa Pada as given in “Brihat Parashar Hora Shastra” and “Jaimini Sutram” by Maharishi Jaimini as translated by Sh.P.S.Sastri. As per “Jaimini Sutram”, Chapter I, Quarter IV, if there is an exalted planet in Upa Pada (or in its second house), the wife will be from a noble family. If the lord of of Upa Pada (or of its second house) is debilitated, the wife will not be from a respectable family. When Upa Pada, its lord or second from Upa Pada or its lord is associated with Saturn or Rahu, the person may lose his wife due to scandal.
CASE I Female DOB: 25 Mar 1971 TOB: 13:00:00 POB Delhi
In this case, married life is disturbed but it is not comfortable. In this case, Upa Pada is in Scorpio, where Jupiter is placed and is aspected by Rahu, Ketu and Debillated Saturn and in 2nd House from Upa Pada Mars is placed and is aspected Sun and Debillated Mercury. As per “Jaimini Sutram”, if Upa Pada or 2nd House from it is associated with debillated planets, wife will not be from a respectable family.
In this case, DK is Venus and is placed with Moon and is aspected by Saturn (Amk),Rahu in the Naksahatra of Mars (MK), Ketu in the Nakshatra of Jupiter (PK). Similarly, 7H from DK is aspected by Saturn (AmK) and Rahu.
In Navamsha, Venus (DK) is placed with Jupiter (PK) and Sun (GK) and aspected by Mars (MK).Similarly, 7H from DK Venus is aspected by Mars (MK) and Saturn (MK).Thus association of GK with DK makes married life somewhat uncomfortable but association of DK and PK makes it pull on.
In this case, there is a Rashi Parivartan yog between 6th Lagna Mars and 7th Lagna Jupiter and in 8th House Rahu is placed thus afflicting 2nd House / 8th House axis. But in Navamsha, there is no planet in Navamsha Lagna and 7th House. 7th Lord Jupiter is placed with 5th Lord Venus and 3rd Lord Sun and there is no affliction to 1/7 and 2/8 axis in Navamsha, so marriage survives.
CASE II Female DOB: 25 Nov 1967 TOB 23:20:00 POB Rewari
In this case Married life is comfortable, husband is in construction field. In this case Upa Pada is in Aquarius and is aspected by Mercury (AmK) and Ketu in the Nakshatra of Mars (DK). 7th H from it is aspected by exalted Mars. As per “Jaimini Sutram”, if there is an exalted planet influencing Upa Pada the spouse will be from a noble family.
Regarding Mars in 7H in this case, it is yogakaraka for Cancer Lagna and Mars exalted in 7H has given high position to husband in his career.
Mars (DK) is aspected by Jupiter (PK), Moon (MK) and Sun (Gk). In Navamsha, Mars (DK) is aspected by Rahu ,Ketu and Venus (AK) and 7H from Mars(DK) is exalted Jupiter (PK) is placed and is aspected by Rahu and Ketu.
In this case, yogkaraka exalted Mars is placed in 7th H. Also, 2nd H /8th H axis is not afflicted. In Navamsha, LL exalted Jupiter is aspecting Lagna and it is aspected by 9th L Mars. 11th L /12th L Saturn is placed in 8th H. In Navamsha , 1/7 and 2/8 axis are afflicted but since there is no such affliction in Birth chart married life is smooth.

11th L Mars is placed in 7th H with 8th L Sun aspecting 10th H and 12th L in 2nd H indicating income from foreign country. In Navamsha, 10th and 11th L Sat is placed with Mars in 12th H.
