7th bhava yogas
Loss/Death of Spouse Yoga:
If the lord of the Navamsa occupied by the 8th lord is Mercury widowhood is certain.
What happens if 8th lord in Rashi chart is exalted in D9?
Yoga that denies marriage
7th lord in 5th or 5th lord in 7th the native may not marry and if he does he will be childless. Another source: 7th lord in
5th destroys the wife and causes loss of children.
What happens when 7th lord is exalted in 5th and one has not taken to monastic life?
in respect to the 8th lord yoga, it does not give an exception for exaltation so the author wold consider it to happen even if exalted. I have not come across it when exalted. But lets think about this yoga. The 8th lord will be mercury in the navamsa in 2 out of 12 charts. Are 2 out of 12 people widowed? NO. so the yoga is not functioning as stated. But it may actually just give divorce or separation and not actual widowhood. Once that is determined then the yoga can be used correctly, or not at all in case it does not test out well. Then the yoga can be searched with the 8th lord being exalted in navamsa to see if it holds true. In my personal database those that have this yoga with mercury as 8th lord in gemini or virgo navamsa do nto have a high divorce rate and none have suffered widowhood. One has hte high possibility of that as her husband has had heart problems since young, however, she finished mercury dasa and he made it through that dasa. The majority of the 7th house yogas need extensive testing as do the majority of the non named yogas and once tested, many will need to be thrown out. I have not had time to test all of them.
and about the 7th lord in 5th exalted and not having renounced love and sex, probably somethign else is keeping them involved in relationships so I would look for that as the chart has to be looked at as in entirety.
I see. Thanks Ernst.
