Venus rules over the second and seventh houses. Both houses are Marak or death inflicting houses. Venus shall however primarily give the results pertaining to the seventh house. Venus the karaka for wife also becomes the lord of the house of wife. Hence all influences on Venus and the seventh house are very telling in effect on the wife.

Two quarter Carat diamonds will not give the same results as a single half Carat one. Diamond is best set in a Platinum ring though white gold and even silver are also used. The diamond must touch the finger. The ring is worn on the middle finger of the right hand. A Friday falling with in five days of the full Moon day is ideal for wearing the diamond ring. Wash the ring with milk-water mixture and pat it dry. Make the following Yantra with Roli-water in a silver or stainless steel plate and let it dry. Then place the ring on the Yantra and offer burning incense and a lighted lamp. Chant the Venus Mantra 108 times and then wear the ring.

ॐ द्रां द्रीं द्रौं सः शुक्राय नमः OM DRAM DREEM DROM SAHA SHUKRAYE NAMAH.
The diamond ring will bring about a measurable change in the areas of spouse’s health and prosperity. It will help with the studies and weak eye sight. Those desiring success as a TV anchor must wear a diamond. People involved with foreign trade, import and export shall also be hugely benefited.


Saturn becomes the ruler of the tenth and eleventh houses but his results shall pertain to the eleventh house of gains as the Mool Trikon Rashi falls in the 11th house. Strengthened Saturn shall increase monetary gains but this is a double edged sword as the 11th house is also the house of injury. In addition to this the problems connected to knees and calf shall also be cured.

After June, a marriage and/or a childbirth makes for a festive atmosphere in the family.
