Being very new, I may go totally wrong. Would appreciate insight into this from seniors.
Firstly, I checked if marriage is on the cards or not ?
7th CSL is in the star of 7th lord, signifying houses 2,7 and 8 . 2nd is a supporting house to 7th and since 8th house is 2nd to 7th, it should denote family to the partner, that would mean a marriage.
Secondly, I checked if Venus dasa supports marriage or not ?
Now Venus is in its own sub and is a significator to 2nd and 11th house, though it is in the star of retrograde planet (may cause delay).
Now, the cause of delay:
7th lord is retrograde Saturn, star lord of 7th CSL. Majority planets who are indicative of marriage, are in star of slowest moving planet Saturn, posited in a common sign, meaning obstacle would really be very unobvious.
Now planets in the star of Saturn, would cause delay. Moon, Mars, Rahu pratyantardasa should see bleak chances though proposal may come up. Jupiter pratyantardasa too seems unhelpful in matrimonial matters. During ending of Venus-Venus-Saturn, some impediments should be cleared. Mercury is placed in 7th, so this should probably be helpful as along with Venus, it can fructify marriage (Feb 2012 ?). I was wrong about Ketu in the above post, as I see Ketu is not really supportive for marriage, significator to 6th. So if immediately after marriage, period of 6th significator comes up, that would mean some problem in that alliance as \"Punarphoo\" also tells us that there maybe several impediments in materialisation of marriage.
