The quality of relations between a mother-in-law and daughter-in-law carry great importance in having domestic peace and harmony in Indian and other Asian societies in particular.
A marriage particularly in our societies is not confined to the boy and the girl, but it is a marriage between two families. Among relations between members of boy’s family and girl’s family the daughter-in-law and mother-in-law relation carries great importance in terms of domestic peace and harmony.
From the Birth and Navansh Charts of a girl a broad astrological indication about quality of this relation can be obtained. The 4th house in the girl’s chart signifies her mother therefore the 10th house that is the 4th from the 7th will represent the mother of her husband or the girl’s mother-in-law.
The native is represented by the ascendant lord viz. the lord of the first house. So evaluate the relation between the ascendant lord and the 10th lord in the birth as well as the Navansh Charts. This gives a broad probable indication.
To illustrate this view we analyse Mrs. Sonia Gandhi’s Charts and Mrs. Meneka Gandhi’s Charts for their relations with their common mother-in-law the late Mrs. Indira Gandhi:
Sonia Gandhi’s Relations with Indira Gandhi …
In the birth chart Moon represents Sonia Gandhi and Mars represents her mother in law. Mars and Moon are placed at mutually square place with respect to each other, which is good.
In the navansh chart Moon and Mars are placed at 5/9 positions with respect to each other, which is very good. Strength wise, Moon and Mars both have equal shadbal strength, which is indicative of their mutual respect and understanding without one overpowering the other.
So the above indications reveal astrologically that they had a good and harmonious relationship between them and the world knows about this.
Meneka Gandhi’s Relations with Indira Gandhi …
In the birth chart Moon represents Meneka Gandhi and Mars represents her mother in law. Mars and Moon are placed at mutually 2/12 places with respect to each other, which is bad and inauspicious.
In her navansh chart Mars is placed in its enemy Mercury’s sign which is bad. Strength wise, the planet Mars representing Indira Gandhi has very high Shadbala strength and it is retrograde therefore it is stronger and more influential than the Moon (Meneka Gandhi); therefore the mother in law had overpowering influence over the native.
So the above indications reveal astrologically that they had a bad relationship between them and the world knows about this.
