Second marriage and Divorce issues in Astrology

Rules/guide Lines for Checking for More than one Marriage in a KP Chart

The assumptions ARE: a. GEMINI (Mithuna), VIRGO (Kanya), PISCES (Meena) are Dual SIGNS(for this study)
b. MERC, JUP (Budha and Guru) owning these signs are considered as DUAL Planets( for these guidelines only)
c. Vedic aspects with no orbs, i.e. Sign to Sign are considered while finding or checking significators of houses.

Within these parameters : The rules are:

RULE – 1: MORE THAN ONE marriage is indicated if the BOTH following two conditions are ARE simultaneously satisfied:

(i) The sub-lord of the 7th cusp OR its Starlord is deposited in a dual sign(gemini,virgo,pisces) OR if the sub-lord of the 7th cusp is
Mercury/JUP and
(ii) The sub-lord of the 7th cusp is also a significator of either of the houses 2 or 11 or both.
If any of the above two conditions is not satisfied, then second marriage is denied.

RULE – 2: Second marriage is indicated if the sub-lord of the 2nd cusp is also a significator of either of the houses 7 or 11.

RULE – 3: ON ASSUMPTION 2ND SPOUSE IS CONSIDERED AS YOUNGER SIBLING OF FIRST SPOUSE
Second marriage is indicated if The sub-lord of the 9th cusp is a significator of either of the houses 2 or 9 or 11.

On a study done on 100 random charts who had 2 marriages..

RULE 1: 74 PERCENT AGREE WITH THIS RULE

RULE 2: 79 PERCENT AGREE WITH THIS RULE

RULE 3: 93 PERCENT AGREE WITH THIS RULE

No rule by itself gives a 100 percent co-relationship

Other observations : For more than one marriage Prof. Krishnamurti has said that the only rule to be followed is to note the sub-lord of the 7th cusp. If the 7th sub-lord is either Mercury or any planet occupying a dual sign or deposited in the constellation of a planet in the dual sign, there will be more then one marriage.

If the sub-lord of the second cusp is connected with 7th house, second marriage; (if connected with 11th house, one will just have an illegal affair, as 7th house significator shows legal bondage whereas the 11th indicates attachment and friendship.)
2nd cusp sublord’s connection with 7th is crucial for a legal marriage, otherwise an affair or companion or living together only.

Recommendation: Since no rule alone gives 100% results, CHECK BY ALL 3 RULES, and then GIVE the prediction on more than one Marriage.

For second marriage to happen legally, first marriage has to break through divorce or death of 1st spouse, which can be known to happen if sublord of 7th house is connected to 2nd house or 6th house(one of its strong significators), as 2nd is 8th to 7th house and 6th is 12th to 7th house and both indicate death of spouse or seperation.
