Mangalya is the symbol of Marriage. Taking oath is the muhurta of marriage.

The following points be kept in view:
The basic & foremost requirement is that lagna should be strong and should not be any of the thyajya lagnas and parts of it.
Another Most important is GURU or Shukra should not be combust – Astangata. This year Guru is asta from 15 -1-2021 to 12-2-2021
Shukra Asta is 14-2-2021 to 4-5-2021. I am eagerly waiting to see as to how many marriages are going to be conducted during this Asta Period for the convenience of Parents, availability of Kalyanamantapas.

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday Friday. We find marriages also conducted on Sundays because the weekly holiday.
Nakshtras good for marriage – Rohini, Msra, Makha, Uttara Phalguni, Hasta, Svati, Anuradha, Mula, Uttarashadha, Uttarabhadra, Revati,
Nakshatra must be avoided- Bharani, Krittika, DhaniShta, Aslesha, Shatabhsha –
Other Nakshtras may be considered provided other factors are good like Lagna and planetary yogas.

Tithi, Dvitiya, Truiteya, Panchami, Saptami, Dashami.

Trayodashi may be considered only in Shukla paksha that too with good lagna and planetary dispositions

There should be no papa kartari dosha for lagna.
One should avoid:

a. Saturn in 12th;

b. Mars in 10th;

c. Venus in 3rd;

d. Moon with a malefic in lagna;

e. Lagnesh, Moon or Venus in 6th (However, Venus in 6th acceptable if Venus is debilitated or is in shatru kshetra).

f. Mars in 8th (this dosha nulifies if Mars is combust)

g. Moon in 6th, 8th or 12th (this dosha nulifies if Moon is in Scorpio).

h. Any planet in 7 th including GURU.

What is good?

Benefics should be in 3, 4, 5, 9, 10 & 11th house from the birth lagna. Of bride / groom
8th house be vacant from natal lagna.

Malefics be in 3, 6th or 11th houses.

8th sign from natal lagna & janma rasi should not be vivaha kundi’s lagna. (this dosha nullifies if lords of such signs are same or natural friends).

For Venus & Jupitari birth lagnas, malefics at the time of muhurta should be in 3rd, 6th or 11th from his/her natal lagna and Jupiter should be in lagna.

Graha shuddhi be ensured as per para iii below.

Most of doshas nullify and muhurta is very auspicious and good if:

a. Venus, Mercury, Jupiter are in 7th from Moon;

b. Malefics are in 3rd, 6th or 11th houses;

c. Moon is in 2nd, 3rd or 11th houses;

d. Jupiter is in houses other than 7, 8, 12th houses;

e. Mercury is in houses other than 7, 8, 12th houses;

f. Venus is in houses other than 3, 6, 7, 8, 12th houses;

g. Sun is in 11th house;

h. Lagna or Moon is vargottama;

Note: Points given below are taken from Brihat samhita; chapter 100, sloka 7 & 8.

ii. Janama rasis of the girl & boy should not be in 2nd & 12th, 5th & 9th or 6th, 8th from the transit Moon which should be free from papa kartari yoga.

iii. Avoid Vyatipata & Vaidhriti Yogas; Vishti Kama & Rikta tithi.

iv. Rising navamsa should be a biped sign DVIPADA (Gemini, Virgo or Libra) OR Pushkaramsha

v. All Uttarayana months excepting Chaitra & Pausha and Dakishanaya month of Kartika & Mrigashira be chosen.

Avoidable lagnas are known as thyajya lagnas. They are:

The first navamsa of any sign on Wednesday the middle navamsa on Monday and Friday and the last navamsa on Thursday and Sunday.

In Aries, Taurus, Sagittarius and Virgo, the first three degrees should be avoided as it is in the nature of a serpent (bhujanga) and hence destructive. In regard to Pisces, Capricorn, Cancer and Scorpio, the last three-degree be avoided as these are presided over by the evil force of Rahu. The middle half ghati (13� 30′ to 16� 30′) should be rejected with regard to Gemini, Libra, Leo and Aquarius as an evil force termed Gridhra rules it.

Bhadhira (deaf) lagnas are Libra, Scorpio during day time, Capricorn, Sagittarius during night time. Marriage in these lagnas brings poverty.

Andha (blind) is Leo, Aries, and Taurus during daytime and Virgo, Gemini, Cancer during night time. Marriage in daytime andha lagnas gives widowhood and in night andha lagnas cause death of issues.

Lame-( Kuntu) lagna is Aquarius during day time and Pisces in nighttime. Marriage in these lagnas causes destruction of wealth.

However, these doshas get cancelled if Jupiter aspects lagna or lagnesh. Note:

There is another view that sign number 7, 8, 9 are deaf in the afternoon, 3,4,6, in the andha in night, 1,2,5 are andha in day and 10,11,12 are pangu during sandhya.

‘Graha shuddhi for marriage (suitability of the planets). The solemnising of marriage is auspicious when Jupiter is shuddha for the bride, when Sun is shuddha for the groom and Moon is shuddha for both. The position of Jupiter in a benefic house from the ‘janama rasV of the girl is called ‘guru shuddhf (or favourable position of Jupiter); and the position of the Sun in a benefic house from the janama rasi of the boy is called ravi shuddh, the position of the Moon in a benefic house from the ‘janma rasi of both is called as ‘ chandra shuddhf.

Avoidable muhurtas for marriage: 1. rikta tithi (4,9, 14); 2. Amavasaya (30); 3. Kroora vaar or Kroora vela (Hora) 4. Janam nakshatra-, 5. All the gadantas
. nakshatragadanta is last 2 ghatis of Jyestha, Revati.
1st 2 ghatis of Aswini, Moola, Magha.
Lagna gadanta is last ghati of sign 4, 8, 12 and 1st 2 ghati of sign 1,5,9.
Tithi gadanta is last 1 ghati of Poorna tithis (5, 10, 15) and 1st 1 ghati of Nanda tithis (1, 6, 11). Dosha removed if Moon or Jupiter are strong.
No dosha if gadanta coincides With abhijit nakshatra.
MOON in MAKARA from 6-40 to 10-53-20 is Abhijit Nakshatra.

Avoid Sankranti day & Mrityu panchaka (baan);

Special prohibitions: i. If boy & girl are first-born issues, marriage in Jyestha month or their Janma maas, Janma naksharta & janma tithi is prohibited.

Marriage of a girl is not to be celebrated within 6th months of the marriage of her brother

The 8th house from janma lagna and janma rasi should not fall as the ascendant of vivah muhurta kundli. This dosha is annulled if lords of such signs are same or natural friends.

Evil doshas be avoided. If not possible, one should resort to neutralising influences and should ensure minimum doshas

In vivah kundli it is not possible to attain dosha rahit muhurta. In order to neutralise adverse influences certain .yogas (special combinations) come into play and fortify the marriage chart despite presence of malefic influences. The yogas are as under:-

Jupiter in lagna, Venus in 8th and Sun in 11th.

Venus in lagna, Jupiter in 10th and Sun Mercury both in 11th.
Venus in 2nd, Jupiter in 12th, Sun in 8th and Saturn in 6th.
Venus in lagna, Jupiter in4th, Mercury in 2nd and Saturn in 11th.
Mercury, Jupiter and Venus all three in lagna.
Strong Venus and Jupiter in lagna.
Saturn in the 3rd, Jupiter in the 6,h, Sun in the 10th and Mars in the 11th.
