For this, the location of Venus must remain powerful. With Venus being a gentle planet and Sun a cruel one, the dominance of the Sun during the state of combust of Venus decreases its governance and makes a person deprived of many kinds of pleasures.

It is considered inauspicious for Venus to enter a state of combust during the initiation of any auspicious ceremony or ritual, such as Marriage Ceremony or Vivah Sanskar. This is why these events and ceremonies are forbidden during this period, and are resumed only after it rises.
