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.

Age of spouse

This method is from Vedic Astrology, Some things are best to consider via your Sidereal chart such as Nakshatra’s and Atmakaraka/D9.

What planet rules the 7th house
Venus , Sun , Mercury, Jupiter = Average age gap of 5-6 years
Saturn = Elder spouse 7+ years

7th ruler in Nakshatra’s
You check check this via Astro-seek
If 7th ruler is in the Nakshatra of Saturn, it indicates elder spouse (7+ y)
If the 7th ruler is in the Nakshatra of Mercury, it indicates no age difference or a very small difference (0-3 y)

Aspects to 7th ruler for younger spouse
Maturity level of spouse could be less than you, if the 7th ruler is in aspect with these planets, especially conjunction

Aspects to 7th ruler for average age difference (5-6 y)
Jupiter = Indicating a spouse that teaches/guides you
Sun = Indicating a very mature spouse

Male chart
Check the condition of Venus as she represents the wife.
Venus-Saturn aspect = Elder spouse
Venus in aspect to Mercury, Mars, Moon = Average age difference (0-4 y)

Female chart
Venus represents the overall marriage and relationship theme of life.
Jupiter represents Husband, but Mars should be considered too.
Jupiter-Saturn aspect = Elder spouse
Jupiter in aspect to Moon, Mercury = Average age difference (0-4 y)

Find out what planet is your Atmakaraka in the birthchart and than check the condition in the Navamsha chart.
Example : If the Atmakaraka is in the 3rd house of the D9 chart and Saturn is in the 9th house, it means Saturn is 7 houses away from the Atmakaraka and this signifies an elder spouse.
Saturn 7 houses from the Atmakaraka = Elder spouse

Age gab relationships are often indicated by a strong Saturn aspect to the 7th ruler.
Sometimes an aspect of Uranus could be involved as it indicates an unusual spouse or unconventional circumstances.
If the ruler of the 7th is placed in Gemini it could indicate a younger spouse, if Saturn is involved it indicates a (large) age gab.
The Most common indication is Saturn in aspect to Venus or Moon for an age gab relationship.
Saturn ruling the 5th or 9th , or Saturn in the 5th or 9th .
