Matching Of Horoscope For Marriage

blog post image for horoscope matching

Horoscope matching is a process in which the horoscopes of a boy and girl who are looking for a marriage partner are analyzed based on certain parameters.

If their horoscopes are in sync with each other in specific parameters, then the horoscope is said to be matched.

This practice is prevalent mainly in the Indian subcontinent where arranged marriages are still prevalent and as the timing of marriage approaches people start to see possible bride and groom. 

But many people who are planning for a love marriage tend to ignore horoscope matching, which can be risky. 

It is worth noting that a good horoscope match is not a guarantee of a happy marriage.

But it can certainly help to sustain a marriage during a crisis and increase the fortunes of a family in good times.

Nowadays, horoscope matching is mostly restricted to Guna Milan, which only considers a few parameters. However, there are many other factors and parameters that need to be taken into consideration for a successful horoscope match.

In this article, I will cover this topic of horoscope matching in detail, where I will explain Guna Milan, what it means, and how it is done.

Then I will mention how effective horoscope matching is done between a bride and groom.

The article is lengthy, and you can navigate it by using the table of contents given below:

Is Horoscope Matching Necessary?

The answer to this question is yes because effective horoscope matching can help get the best from marriage.

A compatible and competent spouse can really make a difference in the quality of life. But as mentioned earlier, some people don't match the horoscope.

With changes in society and norms, fewer and fewer people are matching horoscopes before their marriage.

Now the question arises, why do horoscope matching if it can't change the fate of marriage?

First of all, you need to understand that marriage is a long-term commitment, and both husband and wife need to fulfill their duties effectively to make it work.

A happy marriage can essentially change the flavor of life. A bad marriage can be a nightmare, whereas a happy marriage can contribute to good health, finances, long life, and prosperity.

The significant impact of marriage on our life makes horoscope matching essential. Who wants to end up having a bad marriage?

Here, I would like to add that if there are combinations for bad marriage in the horoscope, then no horoscope matching can fully fix it.

No matter how hard you try and how many proposals you reject, you will end up with someone with flaws or with whom you won't share the connection.

But with good horoscope matching, you will be able to handle the crisis in a better way, and in some cases, it can save someone from bad events in marriage to a large extent.

See, no one in this world is perfect, neither is your spouse going to be, nor is anyone obliged to make you happy all the time.

What's important is a sense of responsibility, maturity, morality, physical fitness, and success in material matters.

Judging these parameters in two horoscopes is the essence of Kundali Milan.

With good horoscope matching, you will be able to sail through tough times of life easily.

Because no matter how good the match is, problems will surely come, which will be due to the conditions of the 7th house and its lord in the natal horoscope.

That is life and marriage!

You see some parameters and some scores mentioned against it. The final score is the cumulative measurement of the various scores which is obtained against parameters of Guna Milan.

NOTE: THESE ASTROLOGY RULES WERE WRITTEN LONG AGO AND MANY OF THESE KOOTA MEANING HAVE CHANGED.

For example, the Vashiya Koota is given only 2 points in Guna Milan but in modern times it is the most important factor for a successful marriage.

In olden days, society was a bit conservative and inter-caste marriage were not prevalent hence they assigned a low score to it.

So it is important we discuss it in detail and see how it is applicable on us.

Lets see the functions and meaning of all Kootas in a Guna Milan which is the backbone of Guna Mila in a Horoscope matching.

What Is Guna Milan In A Horoscope Matching

Guna Milan, also known as "Ashtakoot Milan," is a process of horoscope matching. 

The term "Asht" in Sanskrit means eight, indicating the eight aspects of Gunas that are taken into consideration during this process. The term "Koota" means "guna" or "parameters." Below are the eight Kootas, along with their purpose in Horoscope matching:

1. Varna Koota: This is based on the Varna or caste system, which classifies people into four Varnas - Brahmin, Kshatriya, Vaishya, and Shudra. This Koota is the least significant of all the 8 kootas.

2. Vasya Koota: This Koota assesses the mutual attraction and compatibility between the prospective bride and groom. It determines the degree of influence or control that one partner will have over the other in the relationship.

3. Tara/Dina: This Koota is related to birth star compatibility and destiny. There are 27 birth stars (Nakshatra).

4. Yoni: This Koota measures the intimacy level, sexual compatibility, and mutual love between the couple. Yoni Koota is classified into 14 animals, which are Horse, Elephant, Sheep, Snake, Dog, Cat, Rat, Cow, Buffalo, Tiger, Hare/Deer, Monkey, Lion, and Mongoose.

5. Graha Maitri/Rasyadipati: This Koota shows mental compatibility, affection, and natural friendship. It also represents the moon sign compatibility between couples.

6. Gana: This Koota is related to behavior and temperament. Birth stars (Nakshatras) are divided into three categories- Deva (God, indicating Satwa Guna), Manava (Human, indicating Rajo Guna), and Rakshasa (Demon, indicating Tamo Guna).

7. Rashi or Bhakoot: This Koota relates to emotional compatibility and love between partners. The position of planets in the boy's birth chart is compared with the girl's birth chart. If the boy's moon is placed in the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th house from the girl's moon, it is considered bad or inauspicious, whereas 7th and 12th houses are considered good. In the case of a female, if the natal chart moon is placed in the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th houses from the man's chart, it will be auspicious, and inauspicious if placed 12th from the man's chart.

8. Nadi: This Koota is related to health and genes. Stars (Nakshatra) are divided into three parts- Aadi (Vata) Nadi, Madhya (Pitta) Nadi, and Antya (Kapha) Nadi.

The total score of these parameters is 36, and an ideal score is considered as 24-36. If the score falls within that range, the horoscope matching is considered good. A score in the range of 18-24 is considered medium, and a score lower than 18 is considered very bad.

Varna/Varan Koota In Horoscope Matching

This parameter basically deals with spiritual compatibility between the prospective bride and groom.

Varnas can be calculated using several methods, including:

1. The placement of the Moon in the horoscope
2. The Ascendant or planet Sun in the horoscope
3. The Nakshatra of the Moon

Mostly, Varnas are calculated based on the placement of the Moon and its Nakshatra.

There are four types of Varnas, which are the same as the caste system in India:

1. Brahmin
2. Kshatriya
3. Vaishya
4. Shudra

In Vedic astrology, zodiac signs are also assigned a Varna, which are mentioned below:

1. Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces are of the Brahmin Varna
2. Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius are of the Kshatriya Varna
3. Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are of the Vaishya Varna
4. Gemini, Aquarius, and Libra are of the Shudra Varna

Varnas are matched using several methods, including calculating the Rashi of the Moon of the native, navamsa of the Moon, Ascendant or Sun of the native, and Nakshatra of the Moon.

For example, water sign individuals come under the Brahmin Varna, while fire signs come under the Kshatriya Varna, air signs come under the Vaishya Varna, and earth signs come under the Shudra Varna.

Each group of Varna represents the skills, abilities, and personalities of a person, and when matching the horoscope of the potential couple, the astrologer will check these things before making a decision.

Let's look at the four categories of Varna koota in brief.

A person in the Brahmin category is considered visionary and can understand the cause and effect of things in their wedding.

A Kshatriya is known to be a warrior and possesses qualities such as boldness, honesty, courage, and valor, but can also be short-tempered.

Vaishyas are traders who have the ability to evaluate the efficiency of a person or thing and are good at finding easy ways to accomplish things in their life.

The Shudra category people are known for their follower mentality and are good at being dedicated people in a relationship or society.

This categorization is based on Vedic Astrology that is still being followed nowadays. The Varna koota matching is done by matching each Varna with the other, and the compatible couple will get the full point in the kundali matching.

The following table will help you understand how the calculation  under Varna Koot is done."

Bride

In this system, the Brahmin Varna is considered the highest in order, followed by Kshatriya, Vaishya, and then the Shudra Varna.

Now, understand this: the prospective bride's Varna should not be higher than the prospective groom's Varna.

For example, a prospective bride with Shudra Varna will be compatible with a prospective groom of Kshatriya Varna. The prospective bride should not have a Varna higher than the prospective groom. If that happens, they will have a different way of understanding life.

This Koota is very minute in impact, and in today's modern world, it doesn't affect marriages and the equation between couples."

Vasya/Vashya Koota In Horoscope Matching

 This Koota has a low score assigned to it i.e only 2.

But, in changing times it is one of the most important Koota in Guna Milan.

Why?

Because, it shows the mutual attraction or it decides the mutual attraction between husband and the spouse.

In today's world, no marriage can survives without the mutual attraction between the marriage couples.

Basically it keep the couples interested on each other and helps them to keep the spark alive. Considering the modern way of thinking it is important because people have become too much vocal and have less tolerance for mistakes.

This Koota have further classification which is as follows and it is based on Moon sign only.

1.Manav/Nara (human) which includes Cancer, Pisces & the 2nd half of Capricorn zodiac sign.

2.Vanchar (wild animals such as lions) which includes Leo zodiac sign.

3.Chatushpad (small animals such as deer) which includes Aries, Taurus and the 2nd half of Sagittarius zodiac sign

4.Jalchar (sea animals) which induces Cancer, Pisces and the 2nd half of Capricorn sign.

5.Keeta/Keet (insects) which includes Scorpio zodiac signs.

Here, in this Guna Milan the prospective bride and prospective groom should fall in the same sign group to ensure the maximum compatibility.

You will notice that the two most passionate signs i.e Leo & Scorpio Moon sign, controls the two parts of the Vaishya Koota completely which shows that they are very choosy and look for a completely compatible partner.

The following table will help you understand how the Vashya matching is done.

As you can see in the table when the prospective bride and groom have the same Vashiya koota they get the maximum allocated points.

In such conditions, there will be excellent mutual attraction toward each other.

If the score is zero then the Horoscope match will not be good.

Though the score of zero won't impact much if the following conditions are present in the Horoscope:

1. When the prospective Bride & Groom have the same Moon sign.
2. When the prospective Bride & Groom have the same Moon sign lord.

I found this Koota very intriguing as well. It is fascinating how the sages of ancient India were able to classify different aspects of life, including sexual behavior and approach, through the nakshatra and further classified them in the form of animal species.

This classification provides a unique perspective on human behavior and personality, and it is interesting to see how it can be used to determine the compatibility between two individuals. 

Tara Koota In Horoscope Matching

Tara Koota is the 3rd Koota in the Ashtakoota Milan system of Vedic Astrological match-making.

As the name indicates "Tara" means stars which here means the Birth star.

Here the compatibility of the Birth Stars of the prospective bride and groom is seen for the Guna Milan while doing a Kundli Matching before marriage.

Tara Koota takes into account the Janam Nakshatras of both the boy and the girl and it assess the luck factor.

Nakshtra are the building blocks of astrology and it is essential that there is is compatibility in it.
As we know there are 27 Nakshatras.

And further are divided into 9 categories of birth stars which are as follows:

  1. Janama Tara.
  2. Sampath Tara.
  3. Vipat Tara
  4. Chhem Tara
  5. Pratiyari Tara.
  6. Sathaka Tara.
  7. Vadh Tara.
  8. Mitra Tara.
  9. Parama Maithra

Count the Nakshatra of the bride to the Nakshatra of the groom, and the remainder divided by 9.

The maximum points obtained is 3.

If the remainder is an even number, then the matching is considered auspicious and 3 points are given, while if the remainder is an odd number, then the matching is considered inauspicious and 0 points are given.

If only one remainder(either bride's or groom's) is even, then 1.5 points are given.

You can follow the below table to understand the points distribution.

Graha Maitri Koota In Horoscope Matching

Graha Koota this is the 6th Koota in Kundali Milan. It shows mental compatibility, affection and natural friendship. It also represents the moon sign compatibility between couples. This is important in the sense that it shows the temper of bride and groom.

How you handle a argument in marriage depends on this Koota. In this Koota, Birth stars (Nakshatras) are divided into three categories-

Deva (which means Divine), Manuj/ Manushya (which means Human), and Rakshas (which means Demon).

These Ganas dictate the temperaments and nature of the nakshatras belonging to it.

Individuals belonging to Deva Gana are considered to be simple, yet witty. They are deep thinkers and often participate in philanthropy.

Individuals belonging to Manuj Gana are considered to be gentle and tender, and often acquire the most wealth. 

On the other hand, individuals belonging to Rakshas Gana are considered to be foul tempered and stubborn, which often results in them. getting into fights with people around them.

All 27 Nakshatra are divided into these 3 Gana categories.

Each Gana includes 9 Nakshatra.

1. Deva Gana- Aswini, Anuradha, Hasta, Mrigasira, Punarvasu, Pushyami, Revati, Sravana, and Swati.

2. Manuj Gana- Ardra, Bharani, Poorvabhadra, Poorvaphalguni, Poorvashadha, Rohini, Uttarabhdra, Uttaraphalguni, and Uttarashadha.

3. Rakshas Gana- Aslesha, Chitra, Dhanista, Krittika, Magha, Moola, Jyeshta, Satabhisha, and Visakha.

The best compatibility happens when the Gana is same and is given 6 out of 6 points.

In the table above, each zodiac sign is listed in both the rows and columns. The number at the intersection of two signs represents the number of points assigned to that combination. For example, if one individual has Aries as their zodiac sign and the other individual has Gemini, then they would receive 7 points according to the table.

Each cell in the table represents a possible pairing of Moon signs. The number in the cell represents the compatibility score for that pairing. A score of 7 is considered excellent, 5 is considered good, 3 is considered fair, and 1 is considered poor.

For example, let's take a look at the pairing of Aries Moon sign for and Taurus Moon sign According to the table, the compatibility score for this pairing is 0.

This suggests that individuals with these Moon signs may not be compatible emotionally.

On the other hand, the pairing of Aries and Gemini has a score of 7, which is the highest score possible. This indicates that individuals with these Moon signs are highly compatible emotionally and have a good chance of a successful relationship.

As you can see above the set of combinations for the Bhakoot koota kundali matching is 1/1, 1/7, 2/12, 3/11, 4/10, 5/9, and 6/8. These combinations are further divided into two categories, namely, auspicious and inauspicious.

The auspicious group contains the following set - 1/1, 1/7, 3/11, and 4/10.

When the prospective bride and groom has these combinations, it is considered to be a positive sign for a healthy and prosperous married life. 

The inauspicious group contains 2/12, 5/9, and 6/8 combinations, which are considered to bring some difficulties and challenges in married life.

Let's look at the combinations in detail. The first combination is the same zodiac type (1/1), which is considered an ideal match. When a couple has the same zodiac sign, they share many similarities, which makes it easy for them to understand each other.

The second combination is the 1st and 7th positions (1/7), also known as Sama and Saptak positions. This combination suggests that the couple has complementing personalities and can have a healthy marriage if they find common ground and fit into each other.

The 2nd and 12th positions (2/12) create the Dwirdwadash position, where the marriage looks one-sided. In this position, one partner puts a lot of effort into the relationship, which may cause problems in their marriage life.

The 3rd and 11th positions (3/11) are considered to be a beneficiary position for the couple, where they can support each other to grow.

The 4th and 10th positions (4/10) are another good position for the couple in the Bhakoot koota kundali matching. When everything goes well, the couple can grow in their marriage life by creating a strong emotional connection.

The 5th and 9th positions (5/9) are the Navpancham position of the Bhakoot koota matching. Even though this is a good position for marriage, the couple needs to make efforts to maintain a healthy relationship.

The 6th and 8th positions (6/8) create the Shadashataka position of the Bhakoot koota kundali matching. It is known for bringing struggles to the couple in their marriage life. They need to face a lot of struggles and should overcome those struggles to lead a happy life together.

In conclusion, Bhakoot koota kundali matching plays a vital role in determining the compatibility between two individuals. It is essential to consider the auspicious and inauspicious combinations and understand their implications before making any decisions.

Nadi Koota In Horoscope Matching

There are certain circumstances where you don’t have to take Nadi dosha into consideration.

The following are the exceptions of the Nadi dosha:

Nadi dosha gets nullified when the wedding couples possess the same zodiac sign and different Nakshatras. Similarly, when the couple has the same Nakshatra but a different zodiac sign, Nadi dosha in the kundali match gets canceled.

The Nadi dosha gets canceled for the following Nakshatra pair: Rohini and Purva Bhadrapada, Magha and Rohini, Punarvasu and Ashwini, Uttara Ashadha and Swati.

Finally, the Nadi dosha gets cancelled when the bride and possesses different zodiac signs with the same ruling planet.

Why Guna Milan Is Note Sufficient In A Horoscope Matching

Why Marriages Fails Even After Matching The Horoscope. 

Horoscope matching is a art and needs skill and knowledge.

The reason why Marriages are fails because astrologer don't match Horoscope properly.

Merely relaying on Guna Milan is not the right way to Match two Horoscopes. As mentioned earlier the condition of the 7th house is most important, the fate of the marriage depends of the condition and the placement of the 7th house and its lord.

Ignoring the 7th house and its lord condition is a very fatal mistake and is the reason why the marriages fails even after a high score in Horoscope matching.

Now let's see how horoscope matching is done properly.

Horoscope Matching Starts From The 7th House

The 7th house is the house of marriage and shows the outcome of marriage. You need to start the Horoscope matching from here.

If the 7th house lord in the prospective bride or groom horoscope is placed in 6th, 8th or the 12th house, then you should not proceed ahead.

This is the major flaw and indicates that the person is not destined for a good marriage.

If the prospective bride and groom are intending to do love marriage, than you need to make sure that rest of the Horoscope matching mentioned ahead, comes positive in at least 90 percentage of the parameters.

If the 7th house in Bride and the Groom Horoscope is not placed in the 6th, 8th and the 12th house.

Than you need to see how they are placed relative to each other. They should not be placed 6th, 8th and 12th from each other.

For example, if the 7th house lord is placed in Aries sign in Bride Horoscope than the 7th house lord in groom horoscope should not be placed in Virgo, Scorpio or Pisces sign 

Let's see the how a Horoscope matching is done properly.

How To Do A Effective Horoscope Matching

As mentioned earlier a Horoscope matching is not restricted to Guna Milan only. You need to bring assess the horoscope of the bride and groom on many levels. You need to probe important houses especially the 1st and the 7th house. Let's see how it is done. 

Horoscope matching should be done in two steps:

Step No.1: Assessing the prospective bride or groom horoscope for following parameters:

  1.  Health & Ability Of Procreation,
  2. Wisdom & Maturity.
  3. Sense of responsibility.
  4. Stability in career.
  5. Wealth.

Point A should be inbuilt in prospect bride or groom. You can not compromise in that.

If there is negativity in it you need to reject the marriage proposal right away.

These are in built genetically. Whereas point B & C are something which are not in control and some good leverage can be given to them.

But you can not compromise on parameters mentioned in point A.

Step No.2- After assessment of the Horoscope in step no.1. You need to see the symphony in the Horoscope of prospective bride & groom. 

Both the Horoscope should be compatible on the following parameters:

  1.  Sexual compatibility.
  2.  Mutual understanding.
  3.  Mutual Respect.
  4.  Luck Factor.

Let's discuss the Step No.1 in detail.

Effective Horoscope Matching-Step No.1

This is a very important step and most of the time the outcome of  Horoscope matching depends heavily on this.

This step is basically reading the Horoscope of potential bride or groom in deep details. You need to find the good and bad in the Horoscope and make a note of it.

You need to judge the Horoscope for the points which I have mentioned earlier.

1. Health & Ability Of Procreation In Horoscope Of Potential Bride & Groom: We all know health is most important aspect of human life.  Without good health you can't do anything.  No one wants to marry someone who get sick quite often. Nor with someone who have difficulty in reproduction. In case of prospective Bride & Groom following should be checked in the Horoscope.

1.1 Ascendant & It's Lord: In the Horoscope of prospective bride and groom, you need to find ascendant and it's lord condition. For this check if natural malefic are placed in the first house or if natural malefic planets are making planetary relationship with ascendant lord. 

Natural malefics here are planet Mars, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu. Out of which placement of Mars & Ketu association with the first House and it's lord can make prospective bride or groom heavily flawed. There can be issues in health, nature and temperament etc. 

Saturn especially in first house makes one cold in emotions. Though in certain cases Mars and Saturn can be benefic planet or even Yogakaraka, which will need further assessment.

Still in marriage astrology, natural malefic are known to cause issues even when they are benefic.Mars especially in known to make one aggressive in nature.

Whereas as natural benefic such as Venus, Moon, Mercury and Jupiter makes gives one good health, nature and a  happy person in general.

Though again, these planets can be functional malefic also and a assessment will be required on its strength.

I have listed down favorable planets in first house for each ascendant and also the lord of the first house.

Ascendant
Favorable Planets
1st House Lord
Aries
Mars, Venus, Jupiter, Moon, Sun

Taurus

If both bride & groom have favorable planets in ascendant then this parameter is fulfilled. Though it is important to see the navamsa and the overall condition of the planet and the ascendant.

After this, again use the same list given above to  check if in prospective bride & groom horoscope is these planets are making any form of planetary relationship with the 1st house lord.

In the last check the house where the prospective bride and groom 1st house lord is placed.

It should not be placed in 6th, 8th and the 12th house.

It can happen that 1st house lord is placed in the house mentioned above but in their own sign.

In such case you can ignore the negativity of placement of 1st house lord in 6th, 8th and 12th houses.

This step will give a clear picture on nature, temperament and health of the native.

Remember a strong ascendant and its lord is must in any case.

1. 2. The 5th House & It's Lord: 5th house is the prime house for children and affliction over the 5th house & weakness of the 5th house lord makes it hard to produce children. Here, this area need to be checked beyond just producing kids. The kids should be healthy and successful also. Humans are one of the species in animal kingdom. Our brain likes someone instinctively based on the appearance wealth, education and success.

And who someone can give healthy and successful kids. In order to check that, I have mentioned the placement of planets in the 5th house for each ascendant, which are supportive to give healthy and successful kids. 

You can use it for the Horoscope matching of prospective bride and groom.

1. Aries Ascendant: Only planet Moon is considered as auspicious in the 5th house for matters related to children.

2. Taurus Ascendant: Mercury & Saturn are considered as auspicious in the 5th house for matters related to children.

3. Gemini Ascendant: Venus is considered as auspicious in the 5th house for matters related to children.

4. Cancer Ascendant : Mars is considered as auspicious in the 5th house for matters related to children.

5. Leo Ascendant: Jupiter is considered as auspicious in the 5th house for matters related to children.

6. Virgo Ascendant: Saturn is considered auspicious in the 5th house for matters related to children.

7. Libra Ascendant:  Mercury & Saturn are considered as auspicious in the 5th house for matters related to children.

8. Scorpio Ascendant: Jupiter & Moon are considered as auspicious in the 5th house for matters related to children.

9. Sagittarius Ascendant: Mercury & Mars are considered as auspicious in the 5th house for matters related to children.

10. Capricorn Ascendant: Venus and Saturn are considered as auspicious in the 5th house for matters related to childern.

11. Aquarius Ascendant: Venus & Mercury are considered as auspicious in the 5th house for matters related to children.

12. Pisces Ascendant: Moon & Mercury are considered as auspicious in the 5th house for matters related to children.

After this you need see the planetary association of 5th house lord.

The 5th house lord should not be making planetary association with lord of the 1st, 6th, 8th and the 12th house. Neither they should be placed in these houses. 

When the above mentioned points are favorable than the health of the prospective bride and groom stays good also.

Because, 5th house is 12th from the 6th house of sickness. Talking about 6th house role in health for a Horoscope matching , let's see it in detail.

1. 3. The 6th House & It's Lord: 6th house rules over sickness and ability to heal.

In general those who have afflicted 6th house and its lord or a weak 6th house lord, they get sick easily and are injury prone.

In any Horoscope, the best placement for 6th house lord is 6th house itself.

Also, 6th house lord placement in 3rd, 6th and 11th house gives very good health and vitality.

In 4th, 5th and 9th also it gives good results on health and will make prospective bride or groom healthy and full of vitality.

Planet Rahu & Ketu in 6th house also supports good health.

If above mentioned placements are available in the prospective bride and groom than it will result in good health of Husband and Wife after the marriage. 

1. 4. The 8th House & It's  Lord: 8th house is house of obstacles, chronic health issues and in laws also. In many case, marriage issues are due to 8th house. The role of 8th house in marriage house is always there.

In context of analysis of health area in prospective bride and groom you need to check the following.

In the Horoscope of prospective bride and groom, check where the 8th house lord is placed.

It is best when 8th house lord is placed in 8th house itself.

In other houses, it will create issues.

Whereas the placement of 4th, 5th, 9th and the 11th house lord is also considered as good for health.

Natural benefics likes Moon, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter also gives good results in the 8th house and makes one live long.

Step No.2 Of Effective Horoscope matching

Now you need to judge compatibility between the Horoscope of Bride and the Groom.

Here role of Navamsa become most important. This step will help you to see how the boy and girl will fare well together in terms of understanding, friendship, mutual respect, sexual attraction.

Let's see how this part of Horoscope matching is done.

1. Sexual compatibility: Deep down all marriages are based on sexual attraction towards each other. It is one thing which keeps us interested in our life partner.

For this you need to see mutual placement of Venus from the prospective groom horoscope with the placement of Mars from the prospective bride horoscope. They should not be placed at 6th, 8th and 12th from each other.

The other relative position of their from each other is good especially 1st, 5th and 9th. When they are 11th from each other attraction between prospective bride and groom will be intense.

For example if the prospective bride have Venus in Libra than the planet Mars in the Horoscope of prospective Groom should not be in sign of Pisces, Taurus and Virgo for a good sexual compatibility and mutual attraction.

2. Mental Compatibility: For this you need to relative position of planet Moon in prospective bride and groom Horoscopes. They should not be 6th, 8th and 12th from each other. Best is when they are at 1st ,5th and 9th. If such position you get the best score in Guna Milan.

For example, if the Moon is prospective bride is in sign of Virgo than the Moon in prospective groom should not be in Aquarius, Aries or Leo sign.

3. Mutual Respect: This is very important in marriage, especially in current changing times. Here, you need to see the relative position of Sun  from each other. They should not be in 6th, 8th and 12th from each other.

For example, if the prospective bride have Sun in sign of Leo than planet Sun in prospective groom horoscope should not be in Sagittarius, Pisces or Cancer sign.

4. Luck After Marriage: Even though luck depends on the Dasha which is running. But you may have seen some people do suddenly very well after marriage.

In a Horoscope matching it is important to check this. For this you need to see  the relative placement of ascendant lord in the Horoscope of properties bride and the groom.

The ascendant lords should not be placed at 1st, 6th, 8th and 12th from each other.

For example, if the prospective bride have ascendant lord in sign of Gemini than the ascendant lord of the groom should not be Gemini, Scorpio, Capricorn or Taurus.

Best results comes when they are placed at 5th, 7th, 9th and 11th from each other.

In such case it brings luck after the marriage.

Special Mention- Morality In Horoscope Matching

Morality in marriage is defined as Loyalty, faithfulness or devotion. This is very important and as we can see around how infidelity in marriage has increased. 

It is the most common ground for divorces.

Once a marriage partner cheats in a relationship, the existence of marriage don't stay valid anymore.

Hence, it is important to check this while doing a Horoscope matching.

In order to check this in Horoscope of prospective bride and groom, you need to do check the following:

1. Position of Mars in the Horoscope: Mars is significator of sex and  passion and affliction over Mars leads to desire to cheat in marriage.

Also, planetary association of Mars with Venus, Rahu, Mercury (under the influence of Ketu) and lord of the 6th, 8th or 12th house leads relationship outside of marriage.

2. Position of planet Venus: Just like planet Mars, Venus should be judged to see such tendencies. 

Venus should not be making association with planet Mars, Rahu, Mercury and weak Moon.

3. Position of planet Moon: Moon is karaka of mind and most of our instant decisions are taken through planet Moon. 

Which means Moon should not be afflicted by weak & afflicted Mars.

Moon should not planetary relationship with Venus (functional malefic).

4.Wisdom, Maturity & Sense of responsibility: Having a wise spouse can solve many issues in marriage. 

A wise partner will know what is right and wrong and where to stop a conversation which is going wrong. It is essential to check the wisdom of prospective bride and groom while doing a Horoscope matching.

It can be checked via checking the condition of 1st house & its lord, Moon and 5th house & its lord.

Jupiter is significator of wisdom and should not be weak or afflicted. Jupiter planetary relationship with Moon which makes Gajakesari Yoga is a very good indicator of wisdom.

Following paragraphs will show some general indicators of strong moral fiber which can be applied on the Horoscope of prospective bride and groom while doing a Kundali Milan.
