How to check extra marital affairs in a Birth Chart?


How a person will behave after marriage remains an unsolved mystery. No scientific phenomenon can reveal whether your life partner will remain loyal towards you or not. It is true that nobody wants a partner who cheats, as loyalty is one of the most essential factors in any relationship, whether it is love or a married relationship. However, Vedic Astrology can explain why extra-marital relationships happen based on the position of planets, their conjunctions and houses they are placed in.

Planets & Houses Responsible for Extramarital Affairs in a Birth Chart

Our society is bound with rituals, customs, and some set rules and regulations, of what is accepted and what is not accepted, as an ethical behavior. On the other hand, extra marital affair is more than common in today’s modern world, due to several psychological and social changes that took place over time. However, it is still considered as a taboo in most cases as cheating is nothing but playing with someone’s emotions and feelings, which is not okay.


This unorthodox outlook highlights the importance of the pseudo planet ‘Rahu’, the north node of Moon. For judging infidelity in a horoscope ‘Rahu’ plays an important role as it signifies the unconventional approach and anti-social element. Obsession, mischief, fear, confusion, cheating, manipulation, and unsatisfied desires are denoted by this foggy planet. All the above-mentioned traits can be linked with extra marital affair or infidelity.


The second important planet to be monitored is Moon, the planet that controls your emotions and sentiments. The feeling that comes as instinct and intuition, which drives any person to take any step, is ruled by Moon. A weak moon in the birth chart can make a person emotionally unstable and hence the person may go with the flow of the emotional wave. Thus, a weak Moon is responsible for extra marital affairs in Astrology.


Mercury being the planet of intelligence is considered as the prince charming in astrology. It gives a youthful attitude to the natives. If Mercury is placed in friendly signs or houses, there are strong chances that you will attract the opposite sex like a magnet. It also gives you the courage to start a conversation. You tend to keep your relationship a secret from the outside world.

In Vedic Astrology terms, Mercury is considered as a volatile planet. The effects of Mercury change as per the influence of other planets on it by conjunction, aspect, or exchange.


Mars, the fiery planet, is the powerhouse in the birth chart. It gives the energy required to take any action. Mars represent the will power, courage, and enthusiasm. It also rules the sexual power and passion, which is more than often seen in extra marital relationships.


Venus, the planet of love and romance signifies the luxury and enjoyment, beauty and art, and the materialistic pleasures including carnal desires. The most primary driver for any exotic relationship, Venus is responsible for attraction and thrill in love.

Rahu, Moon, Mercury, Mars, and Venus are the most important planets to be seen for extramarital affairs. Hence, we must look at the placement, aspect, and conjunction of these planets in the third, seventh, and eleventh houses, the houses of carnal desires (kama sthana) or / and in the fifth house of romantic affairs, seventh house of marriage and relationship, eighth house of secrecy, or twelfth house of bed pleasures.

Before going into detailed combinations, let us first discuss the significance of the houses responsible for love, romance, and physical intimacy in relationships.

Third House

The third house is also a part of the desire trine (kaam trikona) and is responsible for extra marital relationships in Astrology. It signifies your efforts, willpower, and courage to break the social norms. Connection of this house with other significant houses or planets mentioned above is an important indication of extramarital affairs.

Fourth House

The overall happiness and prosperity are seen through the fourth house. If a relationship is devoid of love and sex, then the person may find romance outside of marriage. Due to the influence of malefic planets in the fourth house, an individual may be deprived of conjugal happiness and may involve in extramarital affairs.

Fifth House

In any birth chart, fifth house is the prime house which is to be seen for any kind of romantic relationships. The thought process & imagination, the creative pursuits, romance, the way you want to be courted and the people who may date are seen through fifth house/Lord and planets posited in this house.

Seventh House

Seventh house governs your relationship and your dignity. Besides this, it rules your marriage and hence becomes a very important house to be examined while predicting the involvement of someone in an extramarital affair. The presence and influence of malefic planets can create problems in your married life and trigger any other affair. This house is also one of the three houses of carnal desires, and it shows your inclination towards physical intimacy. Seventh house rules over internal reproductive and sexual organs too.

Eighth House

Eighth house is known for mystery and secrecy. It also deals with the taboo topics and the way people react to them. It is also second to seventh house and the destroyer of marriage. Scandals and external sexual organs also come under eighth house. The original place for Scorpio sign, it is the place in a birth chart, which has its own secret charm and craving.

Ninth House

The Ninth house is considered as the house of ethical righteousness. If the ninth house / lord is strong and has some connection with Jupiter, then the person will stay loyal towards his/her spouse. However, any affliction to t he ninth house or its Lord by Rahu, Mars, or Saturn indicate chances of extra marital affairs. Also, the placement of Rahu with or in trine to Jupiter create confusions and increase the chances of extramarital affairs as per astrology.

Eleventh House

Eleventh house in a chart is normally considered as the house of gains and achievements. However, it also includes the gains in relationships if it is connected to houses or planets of relations. Being the original house of Aquarius, the most enigmatic sign, it gives an individual a rebellious attitude and add more of a bizarre instinct. Being fifth house from seventh, it indicates extramarital affairs in astrology. This house is one of the carnal desire trine (kaama- trikona) as well.

Twelfth House

Twelfth house is the house of bed pleasures as well as unfulfilled desires. It denotes sensual pleasures in Vedic astrology. The hidden fantasies and deep subconscious connection are also seen through this house. The 12th house shows sexual involvement without emotional bond. This house can also liberate a person from materialistic and physical pleasures and make him/her inclined towards spirituality. But this state comes after already having over-indulgence in bed pleasures.

Some Other Important Astrological Factors

  • For any relationship to prosper, it is important to keep a control over your emotions and mind. Hence, it is essential the planets related to emotions, passion or sexual urge, Moon, Mars, Venus or Rahu should make a PAC (Placement, Aspect or Conjunction) with mercury.
  • Moon in trine to Mercury, conjunction of Rahu and Mercury, conjunction of Venus with Rahu or Mars will provoke a person to start a secret love affair.
  • Any combination of Rahu with the planets of love or passion (Venus or Mars) will also make the person follow an illegal path. The conjunction and mutual aspect of Moon with Rahu or with Saturn creates a ‘punarbhu’ dosha in the birth chart, which does not produce beneficial results in marriage.
  • When such conjunction happens in Aries, Scorpio, Gemini, or Libra signs, then the probability of being involved in any kind of romance outside of marriage becomes quite strong. Similarly, the involvement of Bharini Nakshatra can intensify the effects. If somehow there is an aspect or placement of Saturn, then the person may be exposed for their infidelity.
  • Since third, seventh, and eleventh houses represent the ‘kama’ or desire, any malefic combinations (Rahu, Saturn, or Mars) in these houses or with lords of these houses will create an urge to involve in some kind of secret love affairs.
  • However, if Jupiter is conjoined or in trine to Mercury, it makes individuals enough mature, practical and realistic in marriage matters. Thus, they are less likely to be involved in extramarital or secret love affairs.


We can say that for any extra marital affair to happen, there must be a PAC (Placement, Aspect, and Conjunction) connection of third, fourth, fifth, seventh, eighth, eleventh, and twelfth houses and their lords with each other or with malefic planets. The more the combination of these houses/ planets, the greater is the probability of being involved in an extra-marital affair.

If Aries, Scorpio, Gemini, and/or Libra gets involved, then the results become more prominent. However, the connection of the ninth house lord or Jupiter with either Mercury or Moon or its placement with the above-mentioned houses or with ascendant will work as a blessing and rules out chances of extramarital affairs.
