Ans. 7th lord Venus is debilitated in 11th house, 4th house is occupied by Rahu and lord Saturn is in the 2nd house. Being scorpio ascendant Jupiter is prime determinant planet sitting in the 8th house of obstruction and hurdles. 12th house lord is again Venus debilitated in the 11th house. With such framework of planets marriage is going to be delayed and marital cord may not be as per expectation. Need to be careful.

Q. What will be the possible outcomes for Saturn (retro) with Mars in the 4th house and Venus in 7th and Rahu in 11th for a Cancer ascendant?
Ans. Saturn & Mars both are hard malefic planets. Moreover, for Cancer ascendant Saturn is functional malefic also. 4th house is soft house of family, childhood, parents. It talks about your home environment, domestic peace, marital harmony, your own family, property inherited from parents, also represents primary education. Body parts such as heart, chest, lungs and breasts are represented by fourth house. Overall, it is sukh sthan of kundli which is indirectly connected to the happiness and comforts of life. Moon placement will matter a lot.
Overall saturn and mars in the 4th house is hard placement. This placement creates mangalik status in kundli. Mars is a planet of aggression and fight, 4th house is not the ideal place for Mars like planet. Trouble to mother, divorce (aspect to 7th house), bad childhood, at the same time mother will be very active personality. Having saturn here will make the things more complicated especially saturn is the lord of 8th house (most malefic) of obstructions too.
However, Mars aspect on 10th and 11th house is good for career & income.

Q. Why is there a delay in my sister’s marriage? Her details are 4 Nov 1987 1 AM born in Chandigarh.
Ans. 7th house is occupied by mooltrikona sign of saturn. Saturn is sitting in the 4th house of family which shows delay in marriage and making own family. 4th house is important house for the family one is going to make or join. Having venus here is good but malefic saturn in the sign of mars indicates trouble. 4th house lord mars is sitting in the 2nd house – one more family house along with Ketu is also not a good gesture. Moreover, for women Jupiter is the main planet sitting in the malefic 8th house and afflicted by Rahu. All this shows delay and interruptions in the marriage.

Q.How is Rahu in Aries which is the second house for a native?
Ans.Aries lord is Mars – aggressive and fierce planet. Rahu is another malefic and chaotic planet. Mars is fire, Rahu is fire; this is a volcanic combination in the chart like a warrior for combat. Largely depends on the placement of Mars in the chart. Rahu expands the natural significant of the rashi where he sits. Rahu in Aries is just too aggressive. Native will be daring, fighter, quarrelsome, at the same time good liar, fraud, and hypocrite. He will go to any extent to fulfill his desires. Rahu in Aries will give so much quick thought process and native will think so fast after one thought to another that he may find it difficult to focus on one thing, concentrate, and decide. This also gives day-dreaming and stress related issues.
However, this combination is good from material perspective. These native will have good physical appearance, muscular body, and agility perfect for sportsmanship and athlete. They can be very dominating figure. Things like chemical, fire, electricity, animals etc may cause harm to him. In the chart house ruled by Mars will be amplified by Rahu.

Q.What happens when Rahu sits in the 10th house with Virgo?
Ans.Virgo is earthy sign well grounded. Rahu does not like to be grounded at all its nature is to take risk and fly. Relationship between Mercury and Rahu is positive so Virgo element keeps the native grounded. Best part of this combination is enhanced skillset of native. Rahu and Mercury both planets are associated with skillset. These people are good managers and excellent in communication and argumentative abilities. However, they may not be so successful at the business front. Success for these people come very late and after
Rahu here also gives a strong desire to earn name and fame in life. These people have a lot of courage and determination. They do not get afraid of easily. These people face all the challenges head on. Rahu in Virgo also gives the native the skills of a politician. These people tend to enjoy a position in authority and government. Chances of starting own business also exist. Such people can also do well as writers. However, their journey to success is not always smooth and some bumps are likely. Success comes nevertheless after a long delay. There may be a fortunate and wealthy marriage, which will turn out happily if helped by good aspects of Venus and the Moon. Failing this, the position often indicates celibacy.
These natives will be flexible to change their loyalty as and when required to fit the game. They will be excellent to analyze a situation and reach the result. Possessed by Rahu they will not be easy to understand by others. They will be very fond of good food. They will be very good at speech and writing and may choose to pursue a career as writers, journalists, lawyer, astrologer etc.[1]

Q.Is Rahu in the 7th house of a Sagittarius ascendant always bad?
Ans.Rahu is the confusion and illusion of the mind; maya, hidden things, surprises, rule breaker. Rahu is obsession with our desires for those things where it is placed in the chart. Rahu is very influential in the chart. Seventh house is the partnerships like marriage, marital harmony, separation or divorce, business-contracts, negotiations with others and agreements. Rahu in the seventh house is obsessed for others.
7th house needs to be free from any malefic effect to have a happy marriage. Rahu in the 7th house delays marriage; causes unhappiness in marriage, can even cause the death of the spouse. There will be lot of opposition, obstacles, and hardships with the business partner. The negative influence is magnified when other inauspicious planets are placed along with Rahu in this house. Native has to be cautious of any cheating effort from the partner. It is possible that partners are not on the same sexual, physical or mental compatibility. 7th Rahu partner may bring trouble to the family, native will be unconventional in the married life. Rahu here suggests the spouse belonging to another community or country. Rahu in seventh house gives anger, dominating and argumentive nature. First wife can die or give divorce, 2nd marriage will also not yield much. Only physical relations will be the base of marriage. There may be some kind of unconservative, untraditional relationship with women like widow, lower class etc. He also needs to be aware of his friends, as he will be rich, he will attract many unnecessary friends who will be there only to enjoy his money and status and will not be very supportive in his life.
Rahu in the 7th house makes obsession with relationships and partnership; relationships will dominate the life. This can lead to many sexual encounters with variety of people, even though person will always feel dissatisfied regardless of how many relationships he may experience. Most of the times they will feel loser in these relationships, especially long-term partnerships and business. This chaos will lead them to search for a self and peace in life and in reverse they may become more focused towards keeping their relations.
In case of Rahu things majorly depends upon: what rashi he is in-who is 7th house owner-where is he-whom he is with-which planets aspecting the 7th house. Rahu is a great money giver, native may be rich and he may have rich partner too, however, his wife will be suffering. Rahu occupying good and friendly sign and position gives prosperity in income and wealth. A prominent Rahu personality without any malefic effect is very attractive. He may have good relations with the Government.
Rahu in the 7th house is also connected with some sins done in previous birth which needs to be paid. Health wise there could be abdomen, heart, piles, sciatica related problems not diagnosable easily.
