By examining your Darakaraka, you learn a great deal about the characteristics of the person you marry. Each planet as DaraKaraka gives its own unique qualities. The rasi and bhava placement, as well as other planetary aspects give a detailed profile of your spouse. So, what does it mean to have Mars DaraKaraka?
With Mars as your DaraKaraka, you’re going to attract someone with Martian qualities. Mars is very capable, driven, and has a strong will. In a spouse, you value logic, problem-solving ability, and prefer someone who is comfortable taking initiative. Mars has strong views that they defend and uphold, so your spouse tends to believe that “their way is the right way.”
They can also be rather athletic and enjoy physical activity.
A good Mars will give a protective, logical, and problem-solving spouse, whereas an afflicted Mars you can find yourself being bullied by him or her. Mars-type people are naturally very good at taking what they need/want. This works out if your needs are the same, but if not your spouse will try to run the show. Issues of diplomacy may come up.
Mars Darakarak gives a spouse with a strong Mars energy. They will either be an Aries or Scorpio Sun, Lagna, or Moon sign, or their Sun and Moon will be conjunct Mars. Mars could also be on their ascendant or their AtmaKaraka. Always check the sign and house placement of Mars in your Chart – this will also give information about your spouse.
When judging your Mars Darakaraka, it’s important to consider planetary relationships.
The condition of Mars in your Rasi, D7, and D9 chart shows the level of satisfaction you receive from your spouse, and whether they are more of an asset or problem in your life. If Mars has many negative aspects or is in poor dignity then your spouse will have the less-desirable qualities of Mars. Argumentative, willful, and dogmatic are characteristics of Mars in poor dignity. A Mars in good dignity will bring on the better qualities of Mars, such as logic, ambition, and know when and when not to argue.
Jupiter and Moon are friends to Mars, so any conjunction or aspect from those two planets improves your relationship with the spouse. Sun aspecting Mars will improve Mars, but in conjunction, it hurts Mars. Venus and Saturn are neutral to Mars, but Saturn’s conjunction hurts Mars. Mercury is the only enemy to Mars, so it’s conjunction or aspect will damage Mars.

hi brooke i love your articles i was born on 10 june 1990 mazouna, algeria at 18:10. can you help me find my darakaraka and the nature of my future spouse plz?
Hi Nina, sorry for my late reply. Your DK is Mars, and there are some nice beneficial influences to your 7th house. I would look up some info on Venus and Mercury in 7th house to see how that will influence your spouse, I am unable to answer questions that need chart analysis in comments.
I have a question my darakarka is mars in 8th in libra and in chitra nakshatra in D1 and vargotamma in D9… it is said that chitra Males are very slim but masculine… is that true? Will my spouse will be slim? My mother has Jupiter in chitra libra as darakarka and my father is slim though…
Also i have a person of interest who has a cluster of planets in aquarius (his sun + moon + mars + Saturn + mercury) and i have a cluster of planets in leo (my moon + venus + rahu + mercury) so do you think we have a future together? His darakarka is mercury in dhanishta and mine as you know is mars in libra, chitra…My moon is tightly conjuncted with mercury and my ascendant lord Jupiter is in dhanishta…. we both are pisces ascendant and his jupiter is in libra, Vishakha but his mars is in shatabhisha and moon + sun in pruva Bhadrapada…

“Any conjunction or aspect” of Jupiter, Moon, Mercury to Mars – seeking clarification. In western astrology, squares are seen as hard aspects and trines/sextiles as favorable. The person I’m seeing has Mars Darakaraka trining Jupiter, sextiling Mercury and squaring the Sun (and opposing Saturn). In this example, is the Sun in favorable aspect to Mars while Mercury is not?
Hi Deb! So with this technique, we’re trying to understand the qualities of a person, so with including Western/Tajika aspects, you can get another layer of information, or at least test it to see if adding those aspects proves to be accurate.
So from what you described, we can derive that the person being represented by Mars has some nice (favorable) Jupitarian and Mercurial qualities. We can also see that Saturn is influencing the person quite strongly, but due to the opposition, it may be difficult Saturnian qualities like fear, poor health, or a tough life. The Sun square: Solar qualities are there, but like you suggest, they may be more on the hard side, such as: challenges with leadership, challenges following one path, struggling with confidence or somehow selfish/egotistical, etc. It doesn’t have to be negative though, mostly we’re using the strength of the aspect to determine how much a planet is influencing, and the dignity of the planet is yet another detail to consider. Hope that makes sense.
