Marriage is considered a sacred bond in Hindu society. Our ancestors have evolved methods in astrology to find auspicious dates for it. These dates are those in which natural forces come in a position and become suitable for BRIDE and BRIDEGROOM’S long and successful bondage, mainly for marriage.
In 2018, January has no suitable date due to combustion of Venus, the most important planet for happiness in life. As we know this benefic planet is significator (कारक) of wife for boys and its strength is necessary, both in birth chart and at the time of marriage. Venus also signifies luxury and sexual matters, so its combustion during marriage will lead to lack of all these things in life of both married partners. Hence this condition of Venus is not desirable for auspicious works.
Marriage Dates in February 2018
Month of February will bring joy to couples who want to marry in this month. This month has 14 general dates (subject to modification) for this sacred ceremony, as Venus rises on third of February.
Strength of Jupiter, Sun and Moon is of prime importance while deciding auspicious date. During combustion of Jupiter marriage is prohibited as this most benefic planet is significator of husband for girls and its strength is very necessary for married life, but in February this does not apply.
Moon resembles our mind and is the seed of chart CHANDRAMA MANSO JATAH. Its strength should be there at the time of marriage. As we know Sun is the life giver and provides energy for living beings so its position is also important.
General dates for marriage in February are 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 18, 19, 20, 23, 24, 28 (Consult a good astrologer for specific dates as due consideration should be paid to position of ascendant lord and other details).
