Ascertaining Marriage Life

Divorce Rules
By: P.M.Padia
Assistant redactor: Andree Leclerc, Canada
Proofing: Carole McMechan, Canada
In my long experience as a professional Jyotishi, I had many occasions to witness countless
relationship problems in marriages. Out of my observations, I have noticed that there are
specific combinations in charts that are indicative of marriage problems and, when they
accumulate together, a divorce is sure to happen. One should not forget Desh, Kala, Patra
that are country, time and customs of the native before venturing into blindly applying these
rules. Some of these rules you would find working in charts of natives with happy married
life and there are special rules which would be given in the next issue which will cancel the
negative yogas mentioned in the rules below, these are most important and should not be
forgotten.
For ascertaining the marriage life of a native or even matching of horoscopes between 2
partners, we should consider the following rules:
General Rules:
The 1H (the native himself), 2H (family) soubhagya of spouse, 4H (domestic
happiness), 7H (spouse, span of marriage life, sex desires), 8H (soubhagya span
of marriage life and sex ability), 12H (sexual compatibility, bed pleasure). If these
houses or their Lords are afflicted by natural malefic planets (Sun, Mars, Saturn,
Rahu, Ketu), the married life will be disturbed and give separation or divorce. If we
find afflictions to 3 or more of these factors, the chances of problems increase.
Please note that for this method, it is more important to consider the 7H, 8H and 12H
with their Lords and karaka (significator) of 7H (Venus for males and Jupiter for
female). Most important if the lord of 5 th, 7th, 8th or 12th is retrograde and if it is malefic
and at the same time in any of these houses (5, 7, 8, 12) then there will be more
chances of divorce.
Same observations as above will have to be made in the Navamsha chart (D-9)
particularly the good or bad Navamsha positions of the Rashi Lords of 7H, 8H and
12H. So, we should analyse the Navamsha in itself like weve done for the rashi and
also see the Navamsha positions of the rashi lords.
Note: the Karaka for the 2H is Jupiter for the 4H it is the Moon for 7H is Venus or
Jupiter.

Nakshatras Based Rules:


If the Center point (cusp) of the above bhavas (1H, 2H, 4H, 7H, 8H, and 12H), their
Lord and their karakas are in Nakshatras of malefic planets, especially Ketu and
Rahu, then marriage life will be disturbed. The cusps considered here are according
to the Sripathi Bhava calculations (all Vedic astro softwares should have this option).
The Moon does not give good results in Anishtakaal Nakshatras (bad for Moon).
Following are the Anishtakaal Nakshatras:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.

The 2nd and 3rd padas of Pushya (6o41 to 13o20 Cancer)


Ashlesha (16o41 to 30o00 Cancer)
Magha (0o00 to 13o20 Leo)
1st pada of Uttara Phalguni (26o41 to 30o00 Leo)
1st and 2nd padas of Chittra (23o21 to 30o00 Virgo)
4th pada of Vishaka (0o00 to 3o20 Scorpio)
Jyeshta (16o41 to 30o00 Scorpio)
Mula (0o00 to 13o20 Sagittarius)
3rd pada of Purva Ashada (20o01 to 23o20 Sagittarius)

If the Centre point of 1H, 7H, 8H and 12H is in the above mentioned nakshatras or the
Lords of the 7H, 8H, and 12H and 7H karaka (Venus or Jupiter) are in the above mentioned
nakshatras, this will give disturbance in married life.
The Moon in these Nakshatras will give hardship in life. At the time of birth, if Moon is in any
of these nakshatras, the birth time is called Anishtakaal (Inauspicious time). To remove the
inauspiciousness of these, Vedic astrology suggests performing particular religious Pooja.

If Venus is in the 1 st pada of Ashwini Nakshatra (0 o00 to 3o20 Aries) or, if Venus
occupies Krittika Nakshatra (26o41 Aries to 1000 Taurus), married life will be
disturbed.

Other Principles:
When the 12L is aspecting or conjunct the 7H, or the 7L or 7H karaka or, if the 7L or
its karaka is in the 12H and afflicted by malefic planet.

Ketu or Rahu being in the 7H or any two malefic planets conjunct in the 7H or with
the Lord of 7H or its karaka then disturbance in marriage life occurs.

Saturn in the 2nd, 8th or 12th house aspected or conjunct with other malefic planets.
The Lord of 2H in the 12H or vice versa.

When the 8L and 12L conjoint or aspect each other this also is bad for marriage life.

Malefic planets afflicting houses 6 and 12 or their lords or karakas of 7H, is one of
the reasons of divorce (because 6 th and 12th houses are for sexual compatibility and
bed pleasure for each partner).

If the 7th Lord or karaka is placed in the 6, 8 or 12 house or, if the Lord of 6, 8 and 12
is in 7H afflicted by malefic planets, this may also give divorce. If any of these factors
are retrograded, it will also disturb marriage life.
In the natives chart, if Venus and Jupiter are in the 6H or 8H from each other, this
gives disturbance in married life.
7H, 8H, 12H or its lord or karaka(s) of 7H being hemmed in by natural malefic
planets (called Papakartari yoga) brings afflictions.

If any 3 principles or more apply on a chart, then divorce can be predicted depending on the
strength of the planet to give effect or not.
Master Principle for Exceptions:
If the Lord and/or karakas of houses 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8 and 12 are in an angle house
(kendra) or in a trine house (trikona) and are aspected by, conjunct with, or hemmed
in (Subha Kartari yoga) by benefic planets, this will protect and save the marriage
life. Similarly, if benefics occupy, aspect or hem in the above houses, it also proves
beneficial.
So, above all, we need to judge how many bad and unfavourable yogas are present and
evaluate their strength. At the same time, we should see how many good and favourable
yogas are found and what their strength is. If bad yogas are more powerful than good
yogas, this will definitively create difficulties, disappointments, hardships and unhappiness
in the life of the native. And if good yogas are prevailing over bad yogas, there will be
happiness, harmony, peace and progress and marriage life will thus be saved. This mastery
of finding the fine balance between good yogas and bad yogas and coming to a conclusion
can come to you only with Experience which no course in astrology can teach.
We will examine some charts to get a better view of the intertwining of these factors. Lets
see which one from our selection of famous personalities will win the laureate of afflictions
(competition will be tight between some of our candidates). Our first criteria will be the
number rules for each and for the finalists, well give you the count of afflictions present.
Chart 1: Martha Stewart
Well-known American entrepreneur. In 1960 she met Andy Stewart, 23, a Yale law student
and they married the following year; one child.
To her dismay, Andy moved out in 1987 and they divorced in 1990. The separation was not
amicable and Andy got a court order to keep Martha away. A non-stop compulsive achiever
known for a tendency to run over people, she was said to have put Andy down often.

Lets start with rule #1 which spells out that houses 7, 8 and 12 with their Lords and 7H
karaka are the first factors we want to examine. Well immediately note that the 7H is
hemmed in, its Lord is in the 6H of quarrel and divorce with Ketu and the 7H karaka is in the
8H with Saturn and receiving Rahus aspect this is bad Mars is also the 2H Lord. This
also implies that houses 6 & 12 are damaged (rules 1, 6, 7, 10, 11, 13 apply).
Saturn (the Lord of the 4H) is well placed in the sign of Taurus (Kubera = wealth is she not
the glorious and prosperous queen of household?), but it is in the malefic 8H. It is with
Jupiter, a natural benefic who is nonetheless by its dispositorship of Mars & Ketu. The 1 st &
8th Lord, Venus, is hemmed in (rules 1 & 7, 11, 13).
The 1H receives Mars aspect, 2H does receive Saturn & Ketu aspects and the 4H receives
Sun & Rahus glances. Nevertheless, Jupiter does aspect the 12H, 2H of family and 4H of
domestic happiness but these are not free from malefic influences besides, the 4H karaka
the Moon, receives no malefic aspects but no benefic glances either so, rule 14 does not
apply. This kinds of bundles it for marriage troubles but well still list the Nakshatra
afflictions, just in case anyone had any doubt.
Nakshatra Afflictions

The Ascendant is in Swati (Rahu is Lord) and Saturn the 4 th Lord, is in Krittika (Sun) (rule 2).
The Moon is in Mula (Lord Ketu) (rule 3).
With all this, Martha Stewart gets 8 negative rules applying.
Chart 2: Linda McCartney
American photographer and musician, a chef and cook-book writer who also happened to
the wife of former Beatles Paul McCartney. Together, they lived an uncommonly stable
marriage contracted on 3/12/1969. For 29 years, she and Paul never spent a night apart
except for one ten-day period when he was arrested and held in a Tokyo jail for having
marijuana on his person. They lived most of their time on a farm in West Sussex, England.
But before, while a student at Sarah Lawrence and the University of Arizona, she married,
had a daughter and divorced in 1963.
Her marriage to Paul McCartney ended when she died of Cancer on April 17, 1998 in
Tucson, AZ.

Born about 2 months after Martha Stewart, we will observe some similar positions as they
even have the same Ascendant.

Again here the 7H is hemmed in and is aspected by Rahu since the Nodes have changed
houses. So now the Lord of the 7H and 2H, retrograde Mars, is alone in the 6H of quarrel
and divorce and faces Rahus dispositor, the Sun, placed in the 12H so, houses 6 & 12 are
also damaged especially since Mars cant help misbehaving, being retrograde. The 7H
karaka, Jupiter (dispositor of Mars & 6L), is with retrograde Saturn in the 8H. Saturn (Lord of
houses 4 & 5) is well placed in the sign of Taurus, but it is in the malefic 8H and it not on its
best behaviour either due to retrogression and being dispositor of ketu. Mercury, the
12th Lord is in the Ascendant and aspects the 7H. Mercury is conjunct Lagna Lord Venus
and 4H karaka Moon these 3 receive Ketu & Mars glances (rules 1, 5, 7, 10, 11, 13
apply).
The 2H receives Jupiter & Saturns aspects. Jupiter also positively aspects the 12H and 4H
let it be mentioned that the 4H as such receives no malefic influence. Venus, 4H karaka
Moon and Mercury are in the Ascendant, an angle, creating Malavaya, Raja and Dhana
yogas. This brings positive relief although Mars and ketu still aspects them all. Additionally,
Jupiter and Venus are in 6/8 relation (rules 1, 12, 14).
Nakshatra Afflictions
The Ascendant and its Lord are in Swati (Rahu). Saturn, 4 th Lord, is in Krittika (Sun is Lord),
Jupiter is placed in Mirgashira (Mars), the center point of the 8H is in Ardra (Rahu) and
12th Lord Mercury is in Chitra (Mars) (rules 2 & 3).
Linda McCartney amazingly gets 9 negative rules but these are not as excruciatingly
negative as in Martha Stewarts case (or other celebrities below) as there is a sense of
balance brought in by favourable yogas we must conclude that some of the afflictions
affected her in other ways (like dying of breast Cancer with the Moon conjunct 8L & 12L and
receiving Mars aspect).
Chart 3: Salman Rushdie
Indian writer, a Moslem famed for the condemnation by the Ayatollah of Iran along with his
death sentence given on 2/14/1989, for writing his book Satanic Verses, 1989. He was
married to his first wife Clarissa Luard from 1976 to 1987 and fathered a son, Zafar. He
married American writer Marianne Wiggins in 1988. They divorced 3/02/1993. In 1997 he
married Editor Elizabeth West and the couple had a son in May 1997. Still married to West,
Rushdie became a couple with 29-year-old Indian model, author and New York City society
girl Padma Lakshmi in early 2000 and they married in Manhattan on April 17, 2004 in a
traditional Hindu ceremony. This was Rushdies fourth marriage.

Controversial Mr. Rushdie has Mars in the Ascendant, in its own sign (Ruchaka yoga) and
mutually aspected by both Jupiter and Saturn (Raja & Dhana yogas). Retrograde Jupiter
(also 12th Lord) in the 7H is aspected by Mars and Saturn. Mars is also 8 th Lord. Ketu in the
8H aspects the 4H and the 12H. Venus in the 2H is with Rahu and hemmed in (rules 1, 5, 9,
11, 13 apply).
Lord and karaka of 4H, the Moon, is exactly conjunct the Sun (Amavasya) and becomes a
malefic. The 6H receives Saturn and Rahus aspects and we have already seen the
condition of Jupiter as 12th Lord. Venus and Jupiter are in 6/8 relation (rules 1, 10, 12).
Other favourable yogas such as Guru-Mangala, Kalpadruma and Vipareet are also present.
To all this, we can add a full course of
Nakshatra Afflictions
The Ascendant is in Ashwini (Ketu) while the centre point of the 2H is in Krittika (Sun), that
of the 7H in Swati (Rahu), of the 8H in Anuradha (Saturn) and of the 12H in Uttara
Bhadrapada (Saturn) so, the centre points of 5 out of the 6 houses under scrutiny are
afflicted. Additionally, Ascendant Lord Mars (1H & 8H) occupies Krittika (Sun), 4H karaka
Moon (also 4th Lord) is in Mrigashira. (Mars) (Rule 2) (He sure looks like the winner as far as
Nakshatra afflictions are concerned so far).
With all this action, Salman Rushdie gets 8 negative rules all categories considered.

Chart 4: Pamela Anderson


Canadian-American actress, star of the most watched TV show in history, Baywatch, a
sand-sex-surf-saga marketed to more than 40 countries and watched by a billion people
every week.
After a four-day courtship with Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, she married him on a
beach in Mexico, February 1995, wearing a white bikini. They had a son on 6/05/1996. With
stormy battles over substance abuse, she filed for divorce on 11/19/1996, Los Angeles, they
reconciled five minutes later. The marriage finally broke up in spectacular demonstration of
spousal abuse that took Tommy Lee to jail and Pamela to the divorce court. He kicked her
once in the back and once in the buttocks. She filed a court order to keep him away.
In April 1999, Pamela had a much publicized bust reduction to balance her exaggerated
top-heavy shape. This monumental event was followed with the announcement of
reconciliation with her drinking, tattooed mate, referring to his beating as an isolated event.
On 4/23/1999 she moved back to their $1.5 million Malibu home, thrilled that her boys have
their daddy back. Their reconciliation soon ran its course and by 2001, Pamela was
hotnheavy with rocker Kid Rock.

Free from the afflictions we seek, the 7H even receives an exalted Jupiter aspect (rule 14!)
7L Mars, however, is opposite Saturn while karaka of 7H Jupiter (also 8H Lord), in the 3H is
free from aspects. The 8H that shows the gains from marriage receives the combined
aspects of Sun, Mars, Saturn and Rahu (that hurts!) Rahu conjunct the fourth house karaka
Moon sits in the 12H that also receives Mars aspect this goes to say that the axis of the
6th and 12th house is harmed by the Nodes (rules 1, 10, with intensity).
The Ascendant is hemmed in between Sun and Rahu and its Lord (Venus) receives Rahus
aspect. The 2nd Lord is retrograde, conjunct the Sun and they receive Ketus aspect (rules 1,
13). Pamela also has favourable Raja and Gajakeshari yogas.
Nakshatra Afflictions
While the Ascendant is in Mrigashira (Mars), its Lord is placed in Magha (Ketu). The 4 th Lord
Sun is in Ardra (Rahu). The 4H centre point is Ashlesha (Mercury), 4H karaka Moon is in
Ashwini (Ketu), that of the 7H is Jyeshta (Mercury) and 7H karaka Jupiter is in Pushya
(Saturn). Then the 7th & 12th Lord, Mars, occupies Chitra (Mars) (rules 2 & 3).
So here Pamela Anderson gets 5 negative rules.
Chart 5: Woody Allen
American comedian, writer, actor and film director, screenwriter, play writer and musician,
gifted and appealing. The ultimate pessimist, Allen is an hedonic, one who is
psychologically unable to enjoy himself; in therapy for over 20 years, perhaps the funniest
neurotic of the 20th century.
At 19, he married a 17-year-old student, Harlene Rosen. The marriage lasted five years. He
married a second time, to actress Louise Lasser, and they had several good years together
before calling it quits.
He is said to have been together with his co-star of 5 movies, Diane Keaton.
In the fall of 1979 he met Mia Farrow, who had seven children. They slowly began a
relationship early in 1980, wondrous at how different they were. The relationship began
falling apart in the end of the 80s.
On 12/01/1991, he began an affair with Soon-Yi (about age 21), one of Farrows adopted
tribe. When Farrow found out, it became a highly public explosion. She accused him of
molesting daughter Dylan on 8/04/1992, which was never proven.
On a chilly afternoon, 12/23/1997, Allen, 62, married Soon-Yi Previn, 27, at a municipal
building in Venice, Italy.

To start with, the 7H receives aspects from Ketu and Mars; 7L & 4L Jupiter is in the 2H
facing the benefic Moon and karaka Venus is conjunct Rahu that creates a Pitru dosha in
the 5H. Venus is hemmed in by Rahu and Saturn. The 8H, where 4H karaka Moon is
placed, receives Saturn & Mars aspects and the 8L is aspected by Rahu. Saturn in the 6H
aspects the 12H and Mars aspects 12th Lord, the Sun (rules 1, 10, 13, 14).
Mars in the Ascendant receives Rahus aspect same Rahu is in a very close conjunction
with Mercury, the Ascendant Lord (rule 1).
Nakshatra Afflictions
His Ascendant escapes difficult Nakshatras! But then, the centre point of the 2H is Swati
(Rahu), that of the 4H in Mula (Ketu), that of the 7H Uttara Bhadrapada (Saturn), for the 8H
it is Ashwini (Ketu) and the 12H cusp is in Magha (Ketu). The 12 th Lord Sun is in Uttara
Ashada, its own Nakshatra (rules 2 & 3). To balance his difficulties, Mr. Allen also has Raja,
Dhana, Gajakeshari, Kalpadruma and Brahma yogas.
Weve got 5 consistent negative rules for Woody Allen.
Ready for another cinema character? Here she comes.
Chart 6: Brigitte Bardot

French actress called the French sex-kitten for over 25 years, lush and pouty. A model at
15 for magazine covers, she became the protg of director Roger Vadim; they married on
12/20/1952. The press have chronicled her misfortunes with relish, her marriage
misadventures, the abandonment of her baby son and her suicide attempts.
Actor Jacques Charrier was her second husband and the father of her son, and millionaire
playboy Gunther Sacks was her third husband. On 8/16/1992, she was married in
Switzerland for the fourth time to seven-year-younger Bernard dOrmale. When she
overdosed on pills on 11/14/1992, her husband said it was an accident.

The 7H has the 4H karaka Moon (9L) and they both receive Rahus glance. Meanwhile,
Venus (7L and 12L) is uncomfortably sandwiched (hemmed in) between Ketu/Mars in
Cancer and Sun in Virgo whilst the 7H karaka Jupiter (2L & 5L), conjunct Mercury (8L) in
the 12H, receives Mars and Saturns aspects (7H matters get a full score). The 8H receives
Jupiters benefic aspect and retrograde Saturn (4L), is conjunct Rahu and aspected by Ketu
conjunct Mars (6L) intensifying the difficulties. This means that the 6H/12H axis is afflicted
(rules 1, 8, 10, 11, 13).

The 4H receives Mars and Venus glances and no aspects are found on the 2H (rule 1).
Some of the favourable yogas ornamenting Ms. Bardots chart are Chamara, Amala,
Brahma, Raja and Dhana yogas.
Nakshatra Afflictions
The Ascendant is in Jyeshta (Mercury) and the 2H cusp is in Uttara Ashada (Sun). The
7th and 12th Lord, Venus, occupies the 1st pada of Uttara Phalguni (Sun). Meanwhile, 7H
karaka and 2nd Lord Jupiter is in Chitra (Mars) and 4 th Lord Saturn is in Dhanishta (Mars)
(rules 2 & 3).
Brigitte Bardot gets a pungent 7 negative points.
Chart 7: Donald Trump
American entrepreneur who made a fortune estimated at $1 billion by finding and buying
losing properties and turning them around.
Trump had a 13 year marriage with Ivana whom her met in 1975, producing three children;
Donald Jr. in 1978, Ivanka in 1982 and Eric in 1986. Their divorce in 1991 was highly
publicized with accusations of his affair with Marla Maples and Ivana reaming Trump for as
much as she could at the time, settling for a $3.5 million dollar home and $14 million. With
this being only 1.5% of his net worth, she continued to pursue for a higher settlement. With
the publication of Ivanas tell-all book, Donald brought a $25 million law suit against Ivana
for breach of privacy. His tempestuous relationship with Marla Maples included a public
shouting match in October 1992 in a restaurant. Their daughter Tiffany was born
10/13/1993. Trump separated from Marla in May 1997 with a pre-nup between one and five
million.
Giving her a $2 million 12-carat diamond ring, Trump became engaged to Slovenian-born
model Melania Knauss on April 26, 2004. They have lived together for the past five years.
The multi-millionaire married for the third time on January 22, 2005 in Palm Beach, Florida,
this time to Melania Knauss. The marriage ceremony was scheduled to begin at 7 PM.

The 7H receives a mixture of Rahu, Jupiter, Venus and Saturns glances. Saturn (7L & 8L)
is conjunct karaka Venus in the Lagna and they both receive Ketus aspect. The 8H
receives Mars aspect while the Sun (2L) is conjunct Rahu. Retrograde 2H karaka Jupiter
(6L & 9L) receives Rahu and Saturns glances. Mercury, the 12L is in his own house and
receives no aspects however, the 12H is hemmed in between Sun/Rahu and Saturn (rules
1, 11, 13).
Raja Yogakaraka Mars is in the 2H and aspects the Moon (4H karaka) which is in a fallen
condition and caught up in a total eclipse (Rule 1).
Nakshatra Afflictions
The Ascendant occupies Ashlesha (Mercury) and 2 nd Lord Sun is placed in Mrigashira
(Mars). The 2H karaka Jupiter is in Chitra (Mars again), the 4H cusp is in Swati (Rahu), the
Moon is in Jyeshta (Mercury), the 7H center point is in Dhanishta (Mars) and 12 th Lord
Mercury is in Ardra (Rahu) (rules 2 & 3). We can easily imagine that Mr. Trumps chart
reveals Raja and Dhana yogas but also a Tapaswi yoga for an austere and dedicated
person (to his cause).
The Donald gets 5 negative rules.
Chart 8: Nathalie Wood

American actress, one of the few child stars who was able to make the transition from child
roles to teenage and adult roles.
Natalie love life was active and complicated. She married actor Robert Wagner in 1957
when she was 19. The couple bought a house and tried to meet the demands of their
respective careers. Neither handled money very well and soon the marriage was in trouble.
They divorced after five years. Gossip columnists reported every spat and suspected
liaison. Natalie was romantically linked with actor Warren Beatty and the two became the
most written about Hollywood duo of 1962. After they split up, Natalie and Warren remained
close friends.
She later was engaged to Arthur Loew and Ladislav Blatnik, a shoe manufacturer from
Caracas. Natalie also dated Elvis Presley, Raymond Burr, Frank Sinatra, and Henry Jaglom.
Six years after her divorce from Wagner, Natalie married the handsome Brit, Richard
Gregson, an agent turned producer. They had one child, a daughter named Natasha but
divorced in 1972. Natalie then married Robert Wagner for the second time. They had a
daughter, Courtney, and Wagner adopted Natasha.

Retrograde karaka and bhadakesh Jupiter (also 4L & 7L) is in the 6H (divorce, wars) and is
recipient of an 8H Mars aspect (Mars is also 8L). Saturn, the 6L of conflicts and 5L of
romance occupies the 7H and receives Rahus aspect. The 8H which holds 4H karaka
Moon is sandwiched between Saturn and Ketu (hemmed in); the 8L, Mars is fallen and
badly combust by the Sun as 12L plus, they both receive Rahus aspect Mars and the
Moon exchange houses (2 bad Lords for Virgo rising). 6L, 6H and 12L are all afflicted by
malefics. But, benefic Jupiter and Venus also occupy the 6H and 12H respectively (rules 1,
9, 10, 11, 13).
Saturn and Ketu aspect the Ascendant while Lagna Lord, Mercury, is conjunct Mars and
Sun receiving Rahus aspect; the 4H receives Saturns aspect and Venus, Lord of the 2H of
family life is in the 12H (rules 1, 8). This good lady has some Raja and Dhana yogas.
Nakshatra Afflictions
Here the center point of the 2H is Swati (Rahu). The 7H karaka Jupiter, also 4 th and 7th Lord,
occupies Shatabishak (Rahu), 8th Lord Mars is in Pushya (Saturn) and the 12H Lord Sun is
in Pushya (Saturn) (rules 2 & 3).
Nathalie Wood obtains a consistent 8 negative rules like Salman Rushdie.
Chart 9: Britney Spears
Spears married childhood friend Jason Allen Alexander on January 3, 2004, at The Little
White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas. The marriage lasted 55 hours, ending with an
annulment stating that Spears lacked understanding of her actions to the extent that she
was incapable of agreeing to marriage because before entering into the marriage the
Plaintiff and Defendant did not know each others likes and dislikes, desires to have or not
have children, and each others desires as to State of residency.
In July 2004, Spears announced her engagement to Kevin Federline, three months after
they met. Federline had recently been in a relationship with actress Shar Jackson, who was
eight months pregnant with their second child. On the night of September 18, Spears
married Federline in a surprise, non-denominational ceremony at a residence in Studio City,
California, filing legal papers on October 6. She gave birth to her first child, Sean Preston
Federline, nearly one year later, on September 14, 2005 in Santa Monica, California by a
scheduled caesarean section.
Brit announced her second pregnancy in May 2006 during an appearance on The Late
Show with David Letterman. Just two days before Seans first birthday, Spears gave birth to
her second son, Jayden James Federline on September 12 in Los Angeles. Spears filed for

divorce from Federline on November 7, 2006, citing irreconcilable differences and asking for
both physical and legal custody of their two children, with visitation rights for Federline. The
couple reached a global settlement agreement in March 2007 and their divorce was
finalized in July.

While the 7H receives Saturn, Rahu and Mars aspects, karaka Jupiter (Lord or 4H & 7H) is
in the 2H of family life which is hemmed in Saturn, malefic Mercury and Sun (tough start).
The 8H receives Jupiters benefic aspect but the 8L, Mars, is placed in the 12H, hemmed in
between Rahu and Saturn. Saturn (6L), placed in the 1H receives Ketus glance. 12 th Lord
Sun which is conjunct Mercury, the Lagna Lord, is aspected by Saturn, Mars and Rahu
so, Sun and Mars are exchanging houses (3H & 12H). Mars also afflicts the 6H (rules 1, 9,
10, 13, 14).
Venus (2L) placed with 4H karaka Moon is conjunct Ketu to the very degree and the 4H
receives no aspects but is hemmed in between Mercury/Sun and Ketu (rules 1, 13).
Amongst her glorious yogas, Britney has Gajakeshari, Amala, Raja and Dhana yogas, and
interestingly, a couple of ascetics yogas: Tapaswi and Parivraja.
Nakshatra Afflictions

To make a long story short, basically, all houses centre points, all karakas and pertinent
house Lords are in bad Nakshatras. That was rules 2 & 3.
With all this, Brit gathers some 6 negative rules.
Chart 10: Margaret Trudeau
Canadian noted family, the daughter of a former cabinet minister and political wife of Pierre
Trudeau from 3/04/1971 to 1976. They had three sons by 1974 when M. Trudeau was
hospitalized for psychiatric treatment.
She left the marriage in 1976 for the drug-culture option of the Rolling Stones and
racketed around New York making the scene. She appeared in the film Kings and
Desperate Men in 1978 and wrote an autobiography, Beyond Reason in 1979, divorced
Trudeau in 1983 and married Fried Kemper. They had two children, a boy in 1985 and a girl
in 1990. Maintaining her link with show biz, she spent three years as a local talk show host.
Her husband went bankrupt in 1993 and now runs a smaller realty firm.

Jupiter, Mars and Saturn all aspect the 7H (some good and some bad), Jupiter aspects
Venus (7L & 12L in the 9H) while karaka Jupiter (2l & 5L) is free from aspects. Ketu glances
at the 8H and 8L Mercury occupies the 11H that is in a perfect Papakartari yoga. Mars (1H

& 6H) conjunct Ketu receives Saturns glance so, Mars and the Nodes afflict the 6/12
houses axis. We shall note that the 12H and its occupants are hemmed in by Mercury and
Jupiter (some positive) (rules 1, 10, 14).
Jupiter is in the Ascendant which is good but 4H karaka Moon in the 2H receiving Rahus
glance; 4L Saturn is conjunct the Sun and the 4H receives the combined aspects of Ketu,
Saturn and the Sun aspect (rules 1). Not many yogas in this chart but, out of all our
personalities, Margaret Trudeau is the only person with 2 trines and the 7L receiving benefic
aspects these are 5H, 9H & Venus.
Nakshatra Afflictions
The Ascendant which occupies the 4th pada of Vishaka and all houses cusps are in bad
Nakshatras save for the 4H. The Moon is in Mula (Ketu) and the 4 th Lord, Saturn is in
Magha (Ketu). Venus, the 7thand 12th house Lord is in Pushya (Saturn) (rules 2 & 3).
Canadas ex-lady earned 4 negative rules.
Our finalists are
Britney Spears = 6 rules
Brigitte Bardot = 7 rules
Martha Stewart = 8 rules
Salman Rushdie = 8 rules
Nathalie Wood = 8 rules
Linda McCartney = 9 rules
Well need to proceed by elimination. To make a more detailed count, we have scientifically
considered each malefic influence or aspects on all houses, Lords and karakas concerned.
Linda McCartney = gets a total of 28 afflictions. Besides, she does have 3 benefics on
angles and nice yogas despite some bad hits.
Martha Stewart = has 22 afflictions. the benefic yogas wed wish to find. Some good
placements are found but they do not help, the difficulties are rather intense like the lady
herself.
Salman Rushdie = surprisingly gets a total of 21 afflictions. Yogas, yogas, yogas are to be
found here. But his Moon (mind) is quite afflicted.
Brigitte Bardot = gets 25 afflictions. Shes got some very nice yogas though.

Nathalie Wood = gets 24 afflictions. Some good yogas are there but the difficulties are quite
concentrated.
Britney Spears = has 35 afflictions, shes got good yogas but her ascetic yogas suggest that
she would benefit in using her inborn capacities to perform austerities for simplifying and
purifying her life in doing so, she could benefit from them; otherwise, they may just
destroy her (so far, she has been doing the otherwise).
The laureate of afflictions is won by Britney Spears!!
