Pada/Upapada in Synastry?
Jaimini gives details about how a spouse looks like/is like according to the Sutras, but does it make sense to use Pada of the 1st/7th and the Upapada in synastry?
E.g. - If 1st pada of one is opposite/conjunct 7th pada of the partner wouldn't it indicate concrete reality for the people to be involved? Or 1st pada in relation of one person in relation to the 1st pada of the second?
I am also thinking of experimenting with this in Navamsa to indicate marriage partner or possibly a crossover between Navamsa to Rasi to show commitment to the individual. Have you done such a thing?
Yes, we can look at one person's 7th pada and compare it to another persons self factors whih are the asc, pada, AK and sun and lagna lord.
Give it a try! I have noticed that couples often have the Pada/UpaPada sign of 1st person being the same sign as 2nd person self factors, like Sun, Rising, AK, or the planet that rules the sign being prominent in the partner's chart. Ganesh Jayakumar has a video with Nicole Brenny on her channel Listen to the Stars on this topic. Also, AstroLada has a video where she talks about relations between a person's Rahu/Ketu axis, Moon/7th from or Rising/7th from in the Navamsa being the same as the partner's Rahu/Ketu axis, Moon/7th from, Rising/7th from, but in the Rasi chart.
yes it is.
