Re: will things ever improve?
According to Vedic Methods my observations are:
1. Aries Ascendant and Lord Mars is placed in 7th house, in it's own Nakshtra
2. 7th house Lord Venus is in 3rd house and in the Nakshatra of Rahu (placed in 8th house)
3. Rahu is in the Nakshtra of Saturn. Saturn is placed with Mars.
Very Indirect combination. Possibility is there for marriage. But not before January 2013 (if this will happen)
