A method from Vedic Astrology. It only works on the Sidereal chart.
Look at the sign on the Descendant and look for the ruler in your chart.
The opposing sign to where the 7th house ruler sits, holds the symbolism.
Descendant in Virgo = Mercury as ruling planet of 7th.
Mercury is placed in Libra, so Aries is the opposing sign that holds the clues.

This method is very similar to ‘turning the chart’, But instead of taking the DSC as the ASC of the future spouse,
you take your Moon sign as the ASC of spouse.
It works the exact same way, so the house where your Natal Moon is placed in, becomes the 1st house of future spouse.
2nd house from your moon sing is the 2nd house of your future spouse, and so on,…
The sign that’s opposing your Natal Moon sign, is what qualities the future spouse will have.
Example : If your Moon sign is Cancer, the future spouse will have some Capricorn qualities to him/her.
