The effect of a magnetic field dependent viscosity on a Soret driven ferro thermohaline convection in a rotating porous medium has been investigated using the linear stability analysis. The normal mode technique is applied. A wide range of values of the Soret parameter, magnetization parameter, the magnetic field dependent viscosity, Taylor number and the permeability of porous medium have been considered. A Brinkman model is used. Both stationary and oscillatory instabilities have been obtained. It is found that the system stabilizes only through oscillatory mode of instability. It is found that the magnetization parameter and the permeability of the porous medium destabilize the system and the Soret parameter, the magnetic field dependent viscosity and the Taylor number tend to stabilize the system. The results are presented numerically and graphically
