Marriages are made in heaven, is a well-known saying. So too can be said,"Divorces
happen in hell". The fabric of Indian society weaves itself strongly around the well-
established and time-tested institution of marriage built upon a well-thought of procedure
and societal sanction. It is as rigorous as any ISO certification. "Once married, married
for life", is the slogan or motto of Indian society. It is very strongly believed and rightly
so, that marriage between a man and a woman approved by law,is not just a civil and
social contract between two people but is also a union of two different families and their
harmonious relationship into the future
Marriage is the biggest gamble a person will ever do in his or her life. Therefore it
is always advisable to find out through every possible means whether the couple are
compatible with each other. It is far more better spending a bit of time and money now to
find the best partner than the subsequent heart ache of separation, spending your time in
family courts and paying huge lawyers fees.
Since the majority of the marriages which occur in Sri Lanka and India are arranged
marriages and on many occasions the couple are strangers to each other until the wedding
day, the matching of the horoscopes of the couple is a very important part of the decision
making and it is the earliest known feasibility study devised by the mankind.
For a successful long lasting romantic relationship/marital relationship analysis,
compatibility analysis is taken up to see the temperament, team spirit, placement on the
map of spiritual advancement, financial and family stability.
It has to be understood as to why match making done astrologically is relevant
though everyone goes into the worldly ways of seeing whether a match will work
or not by looking into the economic position ,general looks, position in the society
etc but still we find that some couples are unable to live together ---fail to feel an
attraction for each other ,temperamental differences etc and ultimately either they
get separated or live together as a long compromise with heart and soul somewhere
The reason for this should be understood like this that in a class of fifty students
where a student acts friendly with three-four students ,will have normal relation
with around thirty –fourty students and unable to get along with three-four without
any logical reason .these temperamental differences are very important in a
relationship like marriage .If proper care is not taken than this relation can turn
into disaster due to this factor only sages developed a system of matching the
horoscope and finding out the general compatability of the indivuals and deciding
whether two people shall gel with each other or not.
After going through both the horoscopes and divisional charts along with other
mathematical indicators used in Astrology . I give below my opinion:
COMPATIBILITY CHART AND ANALYSIS
1)Varna: It indicates ego development between the partners. On this account the
compatibility is there . The husband shall treat the wife with affection and the wife
shall treat the husband with respect.
2)Vashya:Vashya indicates the intensity of mutual attraction and affection between
the couple. This matching indicates that the mutual control between the two i.e,the
level of attraction between the two of you.
3)Tara : This indicates health and well being of the couple and your matching
indicates good results. It also indicates the subtle goals and aspirations of the
4)Yoni: This indicates the biological compatibility and satisfaction. This indicates
the degree of sexual affinity, sensual desires.
5)Graha Maitri: This indicates outlook objective, intellectual level and spiritual
plane of existence.It is based on the friendship between the rulers of their
respective Moon Rashis .If the lunar rulers are friends, the marriage is greatly
6)Gana: Gana indicates temperamental characteristics According to Hindu system
there are three gunas or temperaments of nature ;Deva, Manushya,, and Rakshasa.
7)Bhakut:Bhakut indicates growth of the family It also measures the social outlook
of the individuals. If Bhakut dosh is present than the individuals shall clash as
regards social outlook.
8)Nadi:Nadi signifies the physical health and internal constitution. This is regarded
as most important as it relates to progeny and producing children.
In Astrology if 18 out of 36 gunas match , marriage can take place .
If mangal dosh is there than marriage cannot take place.
Manglik dosh Consideration: A mangal dosh is present when Mars is located in the
houses 1,4,7,8,or 12 from the lagna as well as the Moon in a given chart.Some
astrologers ,especially South-Indian astrologers are of the view that Mars in the
second house also gives a Mangal Dosh as placed here ,it aspects the eighth
house ,the house of martial knoght and thus can break it .But the North-Indian
Astrologers do not go by this view and I also strongly believe on the basis of
empirical studies and the teachings of my Guru that Mars placed in second house
doesnot give Mangal Dosh .
The effect of kuja dosh is to cause the person to be somehow victimized in his
marrriage .This can occur in any number of ways but ultimately one is likely to
end up divorced and generally through no obvious fault of one’s own.The person
will also have to endure hardships in the marriage generated by the spouse.
A Manglik dosh signifies the Malefic effect of the Mars planet in a horoscope
due to which it will be difficult for you to settle down in married life if you
marry a non-manglik person.
The blemishes of Mars may be considered nullified in the following circumstances:
1)when the blemish exists in the horoscope of both the boy and the girl.
2)when one chart has the blemish of Mars while the other chart shows its
neutralisation by the placement of another malefic (Sun,Saturn,Rahu or Ketu ) in
one of the houses mentioned above.
To have a successful marriage it is essential that compatability is there and mangal dosh
is not there.
