Kundali Matching


Hindus have always relied upon Vedic astrology to predict their lifes future
events. An experienced and good Vedic astrologer can foresee various events
of ones life such as health, relationship, and career. It is believed that an
individual can make an informed and wise decision today, which will help them
avoid major problems in the future. For instance, Vedic astrology helps in
kundali milan of two people. It can assist in selecting the right future partner.
In this article, we will learn how kundali matching works for marriage.

Since ancient times, whenever a child is born, their guardian notes down the
time, date of birth and place of the birth of that child for creating a Janam
Kundali, also known as the birth chart. A janam kundali can predict various
events in an individuals life, starting from day one till the very end. It becomes
easier for the guardian to take precautions and prevent any forthcoming
mishaps for the child. In the same way, kundali milan for marriage helps the
individuals to choose a suitable match and avoid any future discord.

Janam Kundali Matching for Marriage

In Hindu religion, janam kundali of the would-be bride and groom are matched
for compatibility. Kundali analysis is done on the basis of date-of-the-birth and
place-of-birth. Kundali milan by date of birth is of dire importance. It gives an
accurate compatibility match, which foresees the marital life of two people.
The process of testing compatibility is called gun milan, and is broken down
into eight different tests. Each guna test generates a certain number of gunas
or points, which are then added for an overall score. It is believed that if the
overall score of gunas is below 18, the match must be avoided. And, if between
18-14, the match is suitable. Any guna number above 24 indicates that the
match is highly suggested and the bride & groom are of a similar nature.

With these many factors which determine the kundali milan of two people, it is
still recommended to do some further research into ones life as highly similar
nature of people might repel each other.

Marriage Compatibility

As we know by now, that kundali milan by name and date of birth plays a vital
role in match making. Let us see what are the other factors which can be
foreseen in a kundali milan. Kundali milan tells us about the relationship
quotient of two people. For instance, kundali matching of two might fare
extremely well in financial conditions; however, the different personalities may
always end up quarrelling with each other. In this case, even a good match may
be rejected in aspiration of a happy married life. Mental compatibility is highly
important for a blissful life. Similarly, physical compatibility also plays a major
role in the overall happiness of two individuals. There are many other factors
that are evaluated to conclude a suitable match. Here are the 8 guna milans
that are assessed during a kundali milan.
Gun Milan Test #1 Varna; Maximum Possible Score: 1

Varna exhibits the basic personality of a person such as skills, hobbies, and

nakshatras in each.

Points are calculated by counting from the brides birth star to that of the
groom and then dividing their number by 9. The same is reciprocated from the
grooms side. Depending on the remainders of both the calculation, points are
allocated. For instance, if the remainders are even, 3 points are given. If the
remainders are odd, no points are given. If one remainder is even and the
other one odd, 1.5 points are given. The higher the score, the better the

Gun Milan Test #4 - Yoni - Maximum Possible Score: 4 Points

Yoni specifies the physical and sexual compatibility between the couple. It is
represented by 14 different types of animals with 2 nakshatras each. Ancient
astrologers defined the behaviour of each animal towards the other, which led
to the formation of 5 behavioural categories. For instance, Swabhava Yoni
indicates that the animals are the same. Such marriages are considered to be
auspicious and the guna match is given 4 points. Similarly, an Enemy Yoni
indicates that the animals are enemies and only 1 point is awarded.
Gun Milan Test #5 - Graha Maitri; Maximum Possible Score: 5

Graha Maitri examines the strength and love between two people. The guna
milan number is achieved by comparing the sign lords of the moon in the chart
of the bride and groom. The relationship between the sign lords gives away the
guna milan number. For instance, if the signs are the same or friendly, the
match scores 5 points, and if one sign is friendly & the other one is neutral, the
match scores 4 points. So on and so forth.

Gun Milan Test #6 Gana; Maximum Possible Score: 6

important kundali milan tests. Bhakoot Dosha is based upon the distance or
number counted from the bride's zodiac sign to the groom's zodiac sign and
vice versa.

Gun Milan Test #8 - Nadi - Maximum Possible Score: 8 points

milan test is given the highest maximum of 8 points. It is again deivided into 3
categories i.e,

Ashtakoot Guna Milan in a Married Life

We have often seen that there are many couples who are facing serious
challenges , discomfort and disgrace in their married life. Despite of getting
married after a careful evaluation and analysis of their horoscope matching
(Kundali Milan).

This Kundali matching is an old and popular Hindu Astro system of arranging
marriage based on the calculation of Guna Milan or scores between the boy
and the girl intending to marry. However the choice of marriage is governed by
the Guna or scores between them. This method is known as the astrological
system of matching the compatibility factors between the bride and groom
which is known as Ashtakoot Guna Milan.

In this method of match making the moon sign i.e rashi , birth nakshatra and
the Moons chart of the bride and groom are considered to asses and evaluate
the compatibility between them .
While calculating the Guna, there are 8 factors which are taken in account;

1.Varna, 2.Vashya, 3. Tara, 4.Yoni, 5.Graha-Maitri, 6.Gana, 7.Bhakoot,8.Nadi .

The weightage of these, factors are same as their serial numbers the totalling
to 36 as the maximum score. Now, what do these 8 factors or AshtaKoota
mean in context to the bride and groom horoscope:

Varna Koot: It is related to Ego, it talks about a persons personality with

regard to his background.

Vashya Koot: It talks about Power. The control in marriage and power
equation between two people.

Tara Koot: This includes the friendship between the birth star of the groom
and bride. It talks about the closeness between them .

Yoni koot : This signifies the sexual affinity between the bride and groom

Graha-Maitri Koot: Is related to the harmony of two horoscope or Rashi

Gana Koot: Is related to the behaviour and temperament of both the boy & girl
Bhakoot: Is regarding love. It is related to boys rashi moon position and girls
moon position
Naadi Koot: This is related to the health and genes of the bride and groom .

In view of the above, this astrological system calculates the Guna and these
scores or Guna predicts about the future of a marriage;
* if the score is less than 18 , the couple is not compatible this marriage will
not be successful,
* if the score is between or equal to 18- 24 , this is an average score and the
marriage is generally acceptable or recommended .

There are scores which are considered to be good are 25- 32 and scores
between 30-36 are highly exceptional and marriage will be successful.

Based on Ashtakoot Guna Milan usually the marriages are fixed and a
common belief that more the scores better is the married life . However, this is
a myth and its not true always!

Our experts in this subject have made practical observation and found that
many married couples with highest scores are very unhappy, not compatible
with each other and often find very difficult to continue with each other. There
are cases of divorce, uncertain death of spouse, infertility, misunderstanding ,
financial and relationship problems .

In kundali matching apart from the Ashtakoot Guna Milan, there are many
other astrological factors which must be studied and considered before a
marriage is decided. Good knowledgeable astrologers will never advice a
wedding without having a complete consideration of all the astrological factors
additional to Ashtakoot Guna Milan between the bride and groom.

The other factors, which are equally important, are the lagna, strength of the
ascendant and its ruling lord, strength of the 7th house and its ruling lord,
strength and nature of Venus and Jupiter. Also the natural friendship between
the ruling lords of the ascendant and the 7th house, between the horoscope of
the bride and the groom. It is very important to have all the stars checked
before deciding so that the relationship can be strengthen based on physical
and mental compatibility. Both partners must have a clear understanding
between each other, financially as well as health both plays a vital role in a
married life .

Good and experienced astrologers study not only the Ashtakoot Guna Milan
but will also study the Venus and Jupiter of the bride and groom as well. The
consideration of Venus is a must for evaluating two horoscopes because its
strength and weakness affects the success or failure of a married life. For
example, the Venus is not rightly placed than there are chances of infertility ,
likewise in a girls horoscope Jupiter plays a very important role , its the house
of husband , its strength and weakness will determine the future of the
marriage .

Therefore it will be pointless to take a decision based entirely on the

Ashtakoot Guna Milan system. It is certainly advisable to take the help and
suggestions of experienced astrologers who has the in-depth knowledge about
the Hindu Astrological system of Kundali matching who will study each and
every stars in detail addition to the Ashtakoot to know about the
togetherness between the bride and groom .

Bhakut Dosh
We all are aware that in India horoscope matching is an essential process
during marriage between the boy and the girl. Most of the astrologers or
pundits would match the kundali or horoscope based on Guna Milan. Under
this Milan there are many parameters which are to be studied in depth before
a marriage is fixed.

Bhakut dosh is one of the important aspect calculated or studied by good

astrologers during the time of marriage. This includes maximum of 7 points ,
and there are different points or combinations which has their own
predictions. Bhakut Dosh tells the relation between the bride and groom in
detail. For example combination of 6-8 or 12-2 , 9-5 found in the male &
femaile kundali than it is known as Bhakut dosh which is actually the
combination of the moon signs in both the horoscope.

Effect of Bhakut Dosh :

It is usually considered that the mentioned combination creates lot of marital
problem between couples. Such combination denotes bad health, accidents,
relationships issues, problem related to pregnancy, child birth , loss of job,
create separation, financial issues and can create emotional disturbance
between the bride and groom in long run. It can create distance between
couple based on their careers, family as well different responsibilities.

Remedies of Bhakut Dosh :

Unlike other dosh ,Bhakut dosh must be cancelled or removed . Reason being
Bhakut dosh destroys the marriage slowly and gradually. It will never let the
couple live together in peace and couple will always have challenges to meet
their desires.
There few remedies which can be performed or done to reduce the effect of
Bhakut dosh.
Please be clear that Bhakut dosh does not get cancelled or removed
completely it can only be reduced to a greater extent for the couple to live

Now to reduce the effect of Bhakut Dosh, pundits or astrologers can provide
different methods based on the individuals horoscopes. One can perform
Puja, use different mantra or tantra for reducing the degree of Dhosh for
Exceptions to the Rule:
This includes exceptional combinations that can be found at the time of
matching the horoscope .These combinations can very much lessened the dosh
n partners and usually such combinations are considered at the time of

For instance, if the Lord of Moon Signs is same of both horoscopes,

Bhakoot dosh is said to be lessened.

Secondly, the 6-8 Bhakoot dosh is said to be lessened in case of Aries-Scorpio

and Taurus-Libra and Thirdly 12-2 Bhakoot dosh is said to be lessened in case
of Capricorn-Aquarius. Bhakoot dosha is less in this case but does not get
completely removed.

However one should remember that the actual malefic effect caused by
Bhakoot Dosh gives different results to each couple depending upon the
planetary aspects present in both the horoscopes. One cannot presume to
have the same combinations until two horoscopes or kundali are matched.

These defects can be potentially more serious if some other Dosha like
Nadi Dosha, Gana Dosha and the weak Graha milan is there in the horoscope.

Bhakut is the 2nd most important Dosh in Ashtkoot Guna Milan or Horoscope
Matching and it must be calculated or studied well before a marriage is fixed .

Interesting Facts About The Nadi Dosh

In Hinduism as we all consider marriage is one of the purest form of relation,
and it is considered for seven births. So, what happens that your new relation
is at an early stage only haunted by negative dosh and one of major dosh is

considered as one of the most important factors in deciding nature, inner
trade, traditional values of the future race. Nadi helps in indicating the vaat,
kaaph and pita nature of any individual according to Ayurveda, these are only
three doshas which lead to imbalance the health. When these doshas get an
imbalance in the body, a person becomes unhealthy. When the nadi of bride
and nadi of groom become same, nadi dosh occur. If any couple faces nadi
dosh, then there are strong chances of an obstacle in conceiving child or
problem in pregnancy during the nine months or nature of child may be
aggressive, full of irritation, frustration, in obedient and many more bad habits.
In most extreme cases there is a chance that child born to nadi affected
parents can be mentally retarded. So, Nadi Dosh is not acceptable in Hinduism.

There are 27 nakshatras in Vedic astrology, and three nadis (Adi, Madhya, and
antya) divided in various nakshatras, so every nadi have 9 nakshatras. Birth
nakshatra beside nadi of a person. There are many rumors about nadi dosha,
bride, and groom born with aadi or anantya nadi after marriage, if they have
nadi dosh then there may be death of spouse or disable child may occur. If

face widow or widower consequences only after few months of
marriage. These quotes described in Puranas

When Nadi Dosh can become nullify

If the Lord of the zodiac sign of boy and girl are same then the adverse
effect of Nadi dosh become nullify. For example: if boy of Gemini sign
and girl of Virgo sign and their Lord is Mercury ( which is same of both
zodiac sign ) then the effect of particular dosha get nullify.

In the same pattern Aries and Scorpio sign, Taurus and Libra, Gemini and
Virgo, Capricorn and Aquarius have the same Lord so in all these cases
nadi dosh become nullify.

If the accessed Lord of boy or girl friendly and have strength with good
position then nadi dosh cannot harm.

If the lord of the fifth, as well as seventh house, gets strength with good
position, in the natal chart of bride and groom and significator of
marriage and child Venus and Jupiter. This will lessen the harmful effect.

If the boy and girl born in the same nakshatra but have different zodiac
sign then nadi dosh negative effect will subsidized.

like Rohini, adra, margashira, pushya, bharni, kratika, magha, vishakha,
anuradha, shwarna, dhanistha, purva bhdra padh, utra bhadra padh and
revti and if it is same in both girl and boy Kundli then their dosh effect
get nullify.
If the to be bride and groom have different nakshatra but have same
zodiac sign, then also wrong effect of dosh get lessen.

If the bride having exalted Jupiter in their birth chart and aspect of
Jupiter in the seventh house( house of marriage) then also she is saved
from Nadi dosh.

Special Note: For consideration, if brahmins are getting married then nadi
dosh is considered the ban.
In case of Kshatriya, vaishya, shudra nadi dosh can be acceptable with some
terms and conditions.
