Loss of wife and Phaldeepika.

If the lord of the 7th house occupies the 5th, the native will lose his wife or he will become sonless. If the lord of the 5th or the 8th be in the 7th, the wife of the native does not survive. If the weak Moon be in the 5th and the malefics occupy the Ascendant, 7th and 12th houses the person concerned will be without wife and children. If the Sun and Rahu occupy the 7th house, the native will suffer loss of wealth through association with women.

The native loses his wife if there are any of the following disposition of planets present at brith:—

(a) Venus in Scorpio in the 7th house.

(b) Mercury in Taurus in the 7th house.

(c) Jupiter in Capricorn in the 7th house.

(d) Saturn in Pisces in the 7th house.

(e) Mars in Pisces in the 7th house.

However, if Mars and Saturn occupy the 7th house identical with Cancer the native will be blessed with a wife who is beautiful and of good character.

The native is deprived of his wife if the 7th house or its lord be associated with or aspected by malefics, hemmed in beetween malefics, be in his sign of debilition or an inimical sign or be eclipsed by the Sun’s rays.

The native will lose his wife or will have a crippled wife, when Venus in conjunction with malefic occupies the 7th, 5th or 9th house.

The native will have illicit relations with other people’s wives if Venus be in the Varga of Mars or Saturn or be aspected by these planets.
