Introduction to Nakshatatra & Marriage compatibility

Infertility A Vedic Astrology insight into its causes and cure. Part II
For females: In a female chart we add together the longitudes of Mars, Moon and Jupiter, and remove the
multiples of 360. The sign thus arrived at is called Kshetra Sphuta or the longitude of the ground. If the
Kshetra Sphuta falls in an even sign and is nourished by conjunction or aspect of benefic planets, there is
strength in the female to conceive..In both cases malefic planets like Saturn, Rahu, Ketu
and Mars should neither be conjunct nor aspecting these sensitive points. In addition to this, these planets
should not fall in the fifth from the Beej and Kshetra Sphuta points..It is also important that
these points do not fall in signs rules by Saturn, Sun and MarsWhen analyzing the causes of
infertility, the horoscopes of both partners need to be studied minutely. Beej and Kshetra Sphuta should be
worked out and compared. This gives a pointer to the riddle as to which partner needs remedies.

Compatibility The Asht Koot system: Vedic astrology has the famous Asht Koot system of finding
compatible partners. It has an inbuilt system of making certain that a couple will be able to enjoy satisfying
sex and have children together. After all this is one of the primary goals of getting married. Unless someone
is an ascetic, enjoyment of life remains uppermost on every ones agenda..The system looks for
eight parameters when comparing horoscopes and gives a mathematical strength to each. In a perfect
match the two charts will have a maximum of thirty six points. This is an ideal condition that is rare. The
maximum I have seen is thirty four. .The eight parameters mentioned above are Varna,
Vashya, Tara, Yoni, Grahmaitri, Gana, Bhakoot and Nadi.
In a separate article we shall go in detail about every one of these, but the needs of the present one are
satisfied with only two. The Yoni and the Nadi. Yoni is a Sanskrit word and imperfectly translates as Vagina.
It refers to the mentality of partners as also to matching of their bodily desires and reproductive organs.
Yoni is important and gets a total of four points. Four out of four in two charts is ideal but is seldom
achievedNadi refers to the three Nadis or energy channels that connect the Sahastrara (the
thousand petaled Lotus) to Mooladhar Chakra or the root chakra. These three Nadis are called Adi, Madhya
and Antya and correspond to Ida, Sushumna and Pingla.

It is a sad fact of life in Western countries that there exists a high failure rate in relationships. Statistics reveal that
about one in three marriages, or worse, will end in divorce. There are, of course, many reasons why couples ultimately
break up, but they usually have their basis in a lack of compatibility. How can relationship compatibility be
measured?.....................There are various astrological (and psychological) methods for assessing the compatibility
between two people, for marriage, friendship and for business partnershipsTraditionally Vedic Astrology uses
a system involving matching the Moons to determine if the charts of the two people planning to marry are in general
agreement with each other. This is known as The Kuta System.
The Importance of Astrological Counseling: Since it is based on the Moon entirely, the Kuta system is predominantly a
measure of the flow of consciousness, the vital life force between the couple, and how this energy harmonizes in the
relationship. It is not meant to be an indicator of karmic compatibility, but rather an opportunity for love to flow
between the couple.
If the Moons do not match favorably, then there may well be other astrological indicators in their charts which support
their compatibility, but they may have to face the fact, consciously or subconsciously, that there is a lack of harmony
on this fundamental level of consciousness.It is very easy, with modern computers and advanced astrological
software, to click a few buttons and produce a compatibility score based on this system, without appreciating the
meaning and implications of the various Kuta factors, and then rush to the conclusion that the couple are, or are not,
suited for marriage.Actually, a deficiency in the score of certain Kutas can help identify where the energy blocks
exist in the relationship. Most Vedic Astrologers in the West can, however, probably relate stories of happy marriages
where the Kuta score is low, and give examples of divorces where the Kuta score was high..It may be, with those
divorced couples scoring highly on the Kuta rating, that one incompatible area has become a major issue in the
relationship, which, with proper astrological counselling, could have been worked through. On the other hand, couples
with a low Kuta score may choose to focus and build on the few really good factors in the marriage, while accepting
their differences in other areas. I think the most important point here is good counselling from the astrologer since
there can sometimes be a fine line between staying together to resolve a difficult issue and breaking up the
relationship It seems that the primary role of the astrologer in this type of situation is to act as a counsellor in
giving support to the couple, in helping them to understand the difficulties they may be experiencing and, hopefully, to
give them a better understanding of themselves and their relationship with the Cosmos. In addition to the Kuta system,
there are many other indicators of compatibility to look for in the charts of the couple.
The Kuta System: Most modern Vedic Astrology software has this feature for comparing two charts, in which a score
out of 36 points is given, based on matching the Moons in the two charts, although in practice I think the maximum
possible score is 35. Essentially, it relies on comparing how well the Moon Nakshatra (and Moon rashi) of one partner
aligns with the Moon Nakshatra (and Moon rashi) of the other partner, and if the final score is 18 or more the match is
said to be favourable. A score of 25 or higher is said to indicate a very good match.
The Kuta System examines 12 factors based on the Moons relative position in the two charts. Briefly, these are:
1. Varna Kuta (1 point), which compares the castes of the Moon rashis (not Nakshatras): Brahmin, Kshatriya,
Vaishya, Shudra. It is said to be an indicator of the spiritual development of the couple.
2. Vashya Kuta (2 points), which measures magnetic attraction, is based again on the Moon sign compatibility,
not Nakshatras.
3. Dina (or Tara) Kuta (3 points) is based on the relative position of the two Moon Nakshatras, and is said to
give good fortune and longevity.
4. Yoni Kuta (4 points) measures sexual compatibility, and is based on matching the various animals that are
represented by the 27 Nakshatras.
5. Graha Maitram (5 points) simply compares the natural planetary friendship between the lords of the Moon
rashis (not Nakshatras), and this is said to measure psychological compatibility.
6. Gana Kuta (6 points) compares the psychological temperament of the couple by comparing the agreement of
the Nakshatra temperaments: Deva (divine), Manusha (Human) and Rakshasa (Demon).
7. Rashi Kuta (7 points) is based on the relative Moon rashi positions, indicating various auspicious and
inauspicious factors such as longevity, happiness/sorrow, wealth/poverty, children, health and prosperity.
8. Nadi Kuta (8 points) compares the ayurvedic temperaments (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) of the couples Moon
Nakshatras, which indicates how their psycho-physiological energies resonate with each other. This is also
said to indicate spiritual compatibility, and this Kuta is obviously very important due to the large number of
points awarded.
9. Mahendra (no points given) is an indicator of progeny and longevity of the relationship, and is measured by
the relative position of the two Moon Nakshatras.
10. Stree-Dirgha (no points given) also is an indicator of longevity and general auspiciousness, and again is based
on the relative position of the two Moon Nakshatras.
11. Rajju (no points given) is an indicator of longevity of the marriage, and is also based on the relative position of
the two Nakshatras.
12. Vedha (no points given) is based on the fact that some pairs of Nakshatras are mutually incompatible, and a
marriage is not recommended between two people who have their Moons in these mutually afflicting
Nakshatras.
It can be seen that 4 of the Kutas do not contribute to the overall score (of 36 points), but one should not overlook
these. According to Ernst Wilhelm, Vedha is a very serious affliction which can ruin a relationship.

Gana in Astrology: Each person has a Gana according to his or her horoscope. There are 3 Ganas
1) Dev Gana ( Devine )
2) Manushya Gana ( Human )
3) Rakshas Gana ( Demonic )
Gana represents the temperament of the person & it is very important during matching of girl's horoscope
with boy's horoscope for marriage purpose. In Kalaprakasika Gana compatibility is must for Kshatriyas. It is
considered good if both the girl & boy are of Dev Gan or Manushya Gan or one is Dev & orther is Manushya
Gan . Manushya or a Dev boy should not marry a Rakshas girl unless there are other neutralizing factors .
However marriage between a Rakshas boy & a Dev or Manushya girl is possible. If marriage is brought
about between prohibited Ganas there will be quarrels & disharmony.
Cancellation of Gana Dosh :
1) If the bride's star ( birth Nakshtra ) counted from that of the boy is above 13 , the evil effect will
be warded off & their horoscopes can be matched .
2) If the Janam Rashis of the couple is the same or if the lords of the Janam Rashis either happen
to be friends then the horoscopes can be matched

According to Hindu Vedic Astrology maximum 6 points (6 Guns) are given to Gana.
Below Given Details Of Gana & Points:
Boy -------Girl------- Points
Dev--------Dev------------- 6
Dev-------Manushya------ -6
Dev------- Rakshas-------- 0
Manushya--- Dev---------- 5
Manushya--- Manushya---- 6
Manushya--- Rakshas----- 0
Rakshas------ Dev--------- 1
Rakshas------ Manushya0
Rakshas------ Rakshas---- 6
Gana of a person is determined from his or her birth Nakshtra . There are 27 Nakshtras & below I will give
details on Nakshtra & Gana
1) Dev Gana : Person who are borh in Ashwini or Mrigshira or Punarvasu or Pushya or Hasta
or Swati or Anuradha or Sravan or Revathi Nakshtra are said to be Dev Gana .
2) Manushya Gana : Person who are borh in Bharni or Rohini or Ardhra or Poorvaphalguni or
Utraphalguni or Purvashada or Uttraashada or Poorvbhadrapada or Uttrabhadrapada are
said to be Manushya Gana .

Species (Ganam): The 27 nakshatara are divided into three categories of nine nakshatras
each. Each category of nine nakshatara indicates one of the three Ganas viz Divine
Nakshatras (Devata), Human Nakshatras (Manushya) and Demonic Nakshatras
(Rakshasa). The Nakshatras are classified into three groups on the basis of the species
namely If the nakshatras of the boy and the girl belong to the same species, it is highly
compatible. Combination of Divine and human nakshatras are medium other
combinations are inauspicious and not compatible.


Yoni (Yonitho Dhampathy Sneham):
Sexual type: The nakshatras possess sexual organs and sexual habits of creatures. Creatures of a similar type will have
greater sexual compatibility than those which are radically dissimilar and which are naturally inimical to each other.
For example,a rat would not be happy if married to a cat and a deer to a Tiger or Lion..If the nakshatras of
the boy and the girl are Janma Enemies/Opponents, then the matrimonial alliance is declined outright. No reliefs or
remedies are entertained to this non-compatibility.
There are two kinds of Yoni Kutas. One is the Male and the other is the Female Yoni Kutas. Every Nakshatras has an
animal of sexual joy, mutual attraction and love. Out of 27 Nakshatras 14 numbers are considered as Male Yonis and
13 numbers are considered as Female Yonis. ..It is best sex compatible if both partners are born Nakshatras
which symbolizes the same Yoni type but different sexes. If both Nakshatras are Male there maybe friction and
quarrelling. If both are Female there maybe lack of initiative and inertia.
The following animals are hustle animals which are to be avoided for Yoni Kuta:
Cow & Tiger.Elephant & Lion.Horse & Buffalo.Dog & Deer.Serpent & Mongoose.Monkey & GoatCat & Rat

This is another koota which is interpreted in two ways. The word Yoni indicates the private reproductive organ of
women. So it is said that presence of Yoni Koota is a must to ensure sexual compatibility. Each star is having certain
animal force associated with it. They are: Cow and tiger, elephant and lion, horse and buffalo, dog and deer, rat and
cat, goat and monkey, snake and mongoose are declared enemies to each other. The stars of mutual enemies do not
agree. If they are of same yoni but only enemy to each other as dog and cow they agrees as secondary. This agreement
confers mutual love between husband and wife.
SIGNIFICANCE OF YONI IN MARRIAGE: It is very important to match Yoni of girl & boy prior to their marriage as Yoni
indicates sexual compatibility. Same Yoni gets 4 points, friendly Yoni gets 3 points , neutral Yoni gets 2 points & malefic
Yoni gets 1 point

http://www.dari.co.in/matchmaking-yoni/

Marriage between the same Yoni is best and gives 4 points.
Friendly Yonis gives 3 points.
Neutral Yonis gives 2 points
Unfriendly Yonis gives 1 point
Enemy Yonis gives 0 point
Deduct one point if Yonis of the same sex.

The different nakshatara
are said to possess the
Yonis of different animals.
The birth nakshatara of the
bride and the groom should
indicate the Yonnis of
animals that are not
mutually hostile. If they
indicate the same Yoni or
neutral yoni, it is considered
desirable. The nakshatara
pairs, their relevent Yonis
and the intensely inimical
Yoni are indicated in the
table:
1 Aswini / Satabisha Horse Buffalo
2 Bharani / Revati Elephant Lion
3 Kritika / Pushya Goat Monkey
4 Rohini / Mrigasira Serpent Mongoose
5 Ardra / Moola Dog Deer
6 Punarvasu / Aslesha Cat Rat
7 Magha / Poorvaphalguni Rat Cat

11 Anuradha / Jyehsta Deer Dog
12 Poorvashadha / Sravana Monkey Goat
13 Uttarashadha / Abhitjit Mongoose Serpent
14 Dhanshita / Poorvabhadrapada Lion Elephant
When the groom and the bride belong to the same yoni, they earn 4 points. If they belong to the
intensely inimical Yonis, they get no points. In case of mutually friendly Yonis, they get 3 points, neutral
Yonis 2 points, and for simply inimical Yonis only 1 point.

Rajju (Rajju Mngalya Vrithysyath): This bestows on the girl living happily with
the husband for the long time. It is considered as the most important of the ten
kootas as it ensures a long life for the husband. The group stars make up a
figure. The groups form foot, thigh, middle, neck, and head. They are as follows:
If both the stars of the boy and girl come in the same portion as foot or head or
neck etc there is no agreement. If they happen to be in the same line as head,
the husband will die, if in the neck, the wife will meet death, if in the middle loss
of children, if under thigh extreme poverty and if under foot pitiable
wanderings. This is a very important agreement.
.
Vedha
Aswini Anti to Jyehsta Vedha (Vedhaya Sohanasanam): 'Vedha'
means affliction. If the birth stars of the
boy's and girl's are not in agreement
(vedha) to each other then generally
health affects (both mental and physical
health). Otherwise a happy and
prosperous married life is assured as a
result..Certain stars are mutually anti or
opposite to each other. The star of boy
and girl should not be mutually anti to
each other. They are as follows: Mrigasira,
Chitrai, Dhanishta are mutually anti to
each other. This vedha agreement is very
important like Rajju agreement. Happiness
cannot be obtained if they are anti.

(1) Sacred Bondage (Rajju): The first and foremost aspect is the compatibility of Rajju, a Sanskrit word meaning
sacred Bondage. According to Hindu rites, the bridegroom ties the sacred cord in the neck of the bride with three
knots or wears a gold chain in the neck of the bride as a mark of accepting her as the licensed wife. Thus the boy and
the girl are bonded together for living as husband and wife for good. This bondage is regarded as a sacred
one..The Rajju is classified into five parts. They are:
(1) Siro Rajju meaning Fore-Head portion
(2) Ganda Rajju meaning Back head portion
(3) Uthara Rajju meaning Top portion of the body
(4) Thodai Rajju meaning the portions around the Thighs and
(5) Pada Rajju meaning the portion below the knee. Each nakshatra falls into the category of one of the
above five parts.
If the nakshatras of the boy and the girl fall in the same part, then the matrimonial alliance is declined outright. No
reliefs or remedies are entertained to the non-compatibility.
(2) Sexual type: The nakshatras possess sexual organs and sexual habits of creatures. Creatures of a similar type will
have greater sexual compatibility than those which are radically dissimilar and which are naturally inimical to each
other. For example,a rat would not be happy if married to a cat and a deer to a Tiger or Lion..If the
nakshatras of the boy and the girl are Janma Enemies/Opponents, then the matrimonial alliance is declined outright.
No reliefs or remedies are entertained to this non-compatibility.
(3) Species (Ganam): The Nakshatras are classified into three groups on the basis of the species namely Divine
Nakshatras (Devata), Human Nakshatras (Manushya) and Demonic Nakshatras (Rakshasa). If the nakshatras of the
boy and the girl belong to the same species, it is highly compatible. Combination of Divine and human nakshatras are
medium. Other combinations are inauspicious and not compatible.
(4)Nakshatra (Birth Star) Compatibility:
(1) Counting is done from the nakshatra of the girl in order upto the nakshatra of the boy. This counted number is
divided by 9 and if the remainder is 3 or 5 or 7, then both the nakshatras are not compatible to each other.
(2) If the boy and the girl possess the same nakshatra, then matrimonial compatibilty is available
(i) if the parts of the nakshatra are not one and the same for both of them
(ii) if the part of the nakshatra of the girl falls in one Rashi (constellation) and the part of the
nakshatra of the boy falls in another rashi (constellation),the part of the nakshatra of the boy
should precede that of the girl.
(iii) Rohini, Ardra, Magha, Hasta, Vishaka, Shravana, Uttara Bhadrapada, Revathi possess excellent
compatibilty.
(iv) Ashvini,Krittika,Mrigashirsha,Punarvasu,Pushya,Purva Phalguni,Uttara
Phalguni,Chitra,Anuradha,Purva Ashadha,Uttara Ashadha possess average compatibilty.
(v) All other nakshatras do not possess compatibility.
(2) if the nakshatra of the girl and the nakshatra of the boy falls in the same rashi (constellation), the nakshatra of
the boy should precede that of the girl.If the nakshatra of the girl is one among the following 8 nakshatras namely
Ashvini,krittika,Rohini,Magha,Hasta,Swati,Purva Ashadha,Shatabisha, the nakshatra of the girl may also precede that
of the boy.
(5) Sthiri Theergam: Sthiri Theergam indicates the death of the wife before that of the husband, especially after
living a happy or satisfied married life.This is considered as auspicious and blissful for a woman.Counting is done
from the nakshatra of the girl in order upto the nakshatra of the boy.If this counted number is not less than 7, then
Sthiri Theergam compatibility is available. If this counted number is more than 13, then Sthiri Theergam
compatibility is excellent.
(6) Mahendram: Mahendram means accumulation of wealth. Counting is done from the nakshatra of the
girl in order up to the nakshatra of the boy. If this counted number is 4-7-10-13-16-19-22-25, then
Mahendram compatibility is excellent.
(7)Rashi (constellation) compatibility: If Counting is done from the rashi (Constellation) of the girl in order
upto the rashi (Constellation) of the boy and if the counted number exceeds 6 ,then Rashi(constellation)
compatibility is excellent.
(8) Compatibility of the Rulers two rashis (Constellations):
If the Rulers two rashis (Constellations) are friends, the compatibility is excellent.
If the Rulers two rashis (Constellations) are Neutral, the compatibility is Average.
If the Rulers two rashis (Constellations) are Enemies, the compatibility is poor.
(9) Natural attraction (Vasya): Certain Rashis (Constellations) have natural attractions towards vertain other
Rashis.This tendency is found in the following ways. Natural attraction between Rashis (Constellations) of the boy and
the girl promotes close affinity with each other.
(10) Nadi (Pulse): Nadi means Pulse. Planets which occupy by a nakshatra have their nature influenced by that
nakshatras pulse, which is its Ayurvedic Consttitution. If the nakshatra of the girl and the nakshatra of the boy falls in
the same Nadi, then there is no Compatibility.
(11) Inauspicious combinations of Nakshatras (Vedai): There are certain combinations of nakshatras which do not
promote marital harmony. The nakshatra of the girl and the nakshatra of the boy should not have the following
combinations.
(12) Kuja Dosha (Blemish of Mars): When Mars occupies the houses 1,2,4,7,8,12 kuja dosha occurs in a horoscope.it is
counted from:
Lagna (ascendant)
Moon and
Venus.When Mars recurs in all these three positions, it is virulent.
Mangala is a name for Mars.Kuja dosha does not promote marital harmony and indicates marital misery.Exceptions to
Kuja Dosha is:
Anyone who has Kuja Dosha can safely marry anyone else who also has a Kuja dosha of approximately equal
strength.The two combinations will cancel each other out.
Mars reaches maturity at the age of 30 years. Therefore, anyone who has a Kuja Dosha will be acquitted or
relieved from the Kuja Dosha on reaching the age of 30 years.
Mars in its own or exaltation constellation cancells the dosha or greatly modifies the Dosha position.
The prescence of Moon in the house Mars occupies cancels Kuja Dosha.
(13) Lagna (ascendant): Lagna indicates the insight into the mind of a person, the lines of thinking and the way of
approaching .Therefore, the Lagna of the boy and that of the girl should be in Kona (1-5-9) or in Kendra (1-4-7-10)
places to each other. when the Lagna of the boy and that of the girl happens to be in the 7th position to each other,the
compatibility is excellent and there cannot be any difference of opinion between the two and the thinking of the two
sail together.So,when the Lagnas of the boy and that of the girl are in 3-6-8-12 places to each other or more
particularly,if they are in 6-8 places to each other,the boy and the girl do not possess identitical minds or
thinking.Unless other factors favourably and strongly recommend the proposition of marriage,the 6-8 position of the
Lagna would not reconcile.
(14) Rulership Period of the Planets (Dasha): Dasha indicates the ruler ship period of the Planets which dictate by
turns in an established order. The events in the course of the life of a person are determined by the period of rule of
Planets. The events in a mans life is scheduled and sequenced in a period of time. So, one has to find out whether the
current period of rule of a planet pave the way for a concrete future towards the marriage proposal and whether the
periods of rule of the succeeding planets in future are reconciled to the advantage of the couple. If the boys horoscope
indicated good dasha throughout his life and if the girls horoscope indicated bad dasha, the fortunes of the boy are
blocked or slowed down. i.e. When a cart is pulled by two bullocks, both the bullocks should go in the same direction
for a smooth and safe travel. If one of them is lame or slow or unhealthy or pull in a different direction or does not
cooperate, the match is not perfect.
(15) Blessing of Children: It is natural that the couple has to give birth to child or children for inheritance and to be
taken care of in the later stages in life. A Child acts as a hinge between the mother and the father and binds them
together in any eventuality. This aspect is seen by the placement of the planets in the 5th place, the ruler of the 5th
place, the natural significator Jupiter and other planetary aspects. If a malefic planet influences the 5th place,
particularly, the blessing of children, in both the natal horoscopes of the boy and the girl, then the compatibility is very
carefully arrived at. If a misfortune is foreseen and if there is no possibility of a remedy or relief, there is no
compatibility at all.
(16)Tree: The nakshatras possess Characteristic features of Trees. Trees of a similar type will have greater
compatibility than those which are radically dissimilar and which are naturally inimical to each other.
(17)Birds: The nakshatras possess habits of Birds. Birds of a similar type will have greater compatibility than those
which are radically dissimilar and which are naturally inimical to each other.
(18)Kalathira Dosha: The seventh house Lord when sits in the house of the Lagna and aspects its own house, Kalathira
dosha emerges. This means, there owner of the horoscope has two spouses. There may be one side love or love
failure or last minute cancellation of the marriage or death of spouse or divorce or separation etc. This has to be
reconciled with an appropriate horoscope in matching.
(19) Kala Sarpa Yoga (The serpent of time): When all the seven planets from the Sun through Saturn are situated in
between Rahu and Ketu, it is called Kala Sarpa Yoga. This creates difficulties on
(1) the house ruled by any planet which is conjoined by either Rahu or ketu
(2) the houses ruled by one or both of the dispositors of Rahu and ketu and
(3) The houses Rahu and ketu occupy.
(20) Bhava (malefic effects): Jupiter and Venus are Natural Benefics.Saturn,Mars,Rahu and Ketu are
Natural Malefics.Sun is cruel. Moon is Natural Benefic when waxing.i.e.when moving from New to
Full.Otherwise,it is a Natural Malefic.Mercury is a Natural Benefic when associated with the Natural
Benefics and Natural Malefic when associated with the Natural Malefics.
(1) When Malefic Planets occupy the houses 1,2,4,7,8,12 counted from
(i) Lagna (ascendant)
(ii) Moon and
(iii) Venus, the malefic effect is 100%
(2) If Mars sits in the 12th house, the Malefic effect is 25%
(3) For Ruler ship of Malefic Planets, the Malefic effect is 50%
(4) If the Ruler of the house in which the Malefic Planet sits is
(iv) In an Exalted Position, then the Malefic Effect is 75%.
(v) A friend, then the Malefic Effect is 25%.
(vi) An Enemy, then the Malefic Effect is 100%.
(vii) In a Debilitated Position, then the Malefic Effect is 125%.
When the Bhava (malefic effects) of the Girl and the Boy is in the ratio 1:2,the Compatibility is excellent.

Points to Remember:
1. Allocation of Parts of Human Body to Nakshatras: (K.T.Shubhakaran)
a. Each Nakshatra governs certain parts of the body.
b. Affliction to a Nakshatra by malefic planets affects the concerned part of the body.
c. Find out the Nakshatra placement of a malefic planet in a chart.
d. Then find out the parts of the body governed by that Nakshatra
e. Proper care may be taken to that part of the body.
f. In addition propitiation of the malefic planet may be done for relief as mentioned under each Nakshatra.

2. Rajju Porutham (http://www.raajayogam.com/)
a. Rajju Porutham is attached greater importance in marriage matching process.
b. The reason is that Rajju Porutham is considered as ensuring the Maangalya Bakyam of the Girl.
c. The 27 Nakshatras are grouped into 5 categories. Each category is assigned a name representing a segment of
the human body.
d. The general principle is that the Boy and the Girl should not belong to the Nakshatras which fall under the same
Rajju. This means Eka Rajju is incompatible.
e. The important factor is that because Rajju signifies the Maangalya Bakyam, no one is prepared to make a
compromise on this Porutham.
The 5 Groups of Rajju are
a. Sirasu Rajju
b. Kanda Rajju
c. Udhara Rajju
d. Ooru Rajju
e. Paada Rajju.
The Nakshatras of the Girl and the Boy should not fall within the same Rajju. Then, it is considered as Eka
Rajju and becomes incompatible and mis-matching.
Sirasu Rajju comprises the following Nakshatras. (Mrigaseersham, Chithirai and Avittam).
Kanda Rajju comprises the following Nakshatras.
(Rohini, Hastham, Thiruvonam, Thiruvadirai, Swathi and Sadayam)
Udhara Rajju comprises the following Nakshatras.
(Krithigai, Uthiram, Uthiradam, Punarpoosam, Visakam and Poorattathi)
Ooru Rajju comprises the following Nakshatras.
(Bharani, Pooram, Pooradam, Poosam, Anusham and Uthirattathi)
Paada Rajju comprises the following Nakshatras.
(Aswini, Makam, Moolam, Ayilyam, Kettai and Revathi)
If both the Boy and the Girl belong to any of the above class of Nakshatras, they fall under Eka Rajju. It constitutes Rajju
Dosham and is incompatible. It should be ensured that both the Girl and the Boy do not fall under the same Rajju Group
of Nakshatras. If the Nakshatras of the Girl and the Boy fall under the same Rajju, it constitutes Rajju Dosham. Such
horoscopes are mutually incompatible. It is a belief that if the horoscopes are free from Rajju Dosham, the Girl will have a
lasting Mangalya Bakyam.
3. Gana Porutham
1. If the Girl and the Boy belong the same classification of Ganam, it is most appropriate. This is known as Eka Ganam.
2. If the Nakshatras of the Girl and Boy Deva Ganam, or if both of them are Manusha Ganam, it is considered as best
matching.
3. If it is not Eka Gana Nakshatras, if the Girl is Deva Ganam and if the Boy is Manusha Ganam, it is considered as
moderately matching.
4. If the Boy is Deva Ganam and if the Girl is Manusha Ganam, it can also be considered as matching to some extent.
5. There is a school of thought that if Girl belongs to Manusha Ganam Nakshatra and the Boy is of Deva Ganam Nakshatra, it
can be considered as matching if the Boy's Nakshatra is beyond 13 Nakshatras from the Girl. Some claim that a
difference of 7 Nakshatras is enough.
6. If the Girl is Manusha Ganam and if the Boy is Raajasa Ganam, it is considered as matching if other matching parameters
are satisfactory.
7. Eka Ganam in Raajasa Ganam is not considered appropriate.
8. Raajasa Ganam of a Girl is described as NOT matching with any Nakshatra, so for as Gana Porutham is concerned.
9. But, 9 out of the 27 Nakshatras are Raajasa Ganam. Girl children are born in these 9 Raajasa Ganam Nakshatras. They
have to get married.
10. If we apply the above principles, no girl child born in any of the 9 Raajasa Ganam Nakshatras will ever get married.
11. We only have to make a balanced approach. Generally Raajasa Gana Nakshatras - particularly the Girls are a bit
talkative. It may not and can be common to all. In a majority of cases, it is so.
12. Generally Raajasa Ganam Girls and even Boys may not have the way of submissive talk.
13. Generally they are harmless and innocent. Only they will not mind who are in the surrounding and whether a matter can
be talked in a particular manner in that situation.
14. This will pose a problem in their relationships - both within the family and outside the family. People who prefer
submissive way of talk will not like this approach.
15. With a view to overcome this impediment, it is advisable that Raajasa Ganam Girls are matched with other Raajasa
Ganam Boys or Manusha Ganam Boys with a difference of over 13 Nakshatras.
16. This will provide some tolerance between the two.
17. As prescribed in ancient days, Raajasa Ganam Girls need not be altogether set aside.
18. If other matching parameters are by and large good, Gana Porutham with respect to Raajasa Ganam should be
approached with the above facts in mind.
19. If there is adequate difference of Nakshatras from the Girl to the Boy, Raajasa Ganam can also be accepted provided
other matching parameters agree to a reasonably good extent.
4. Dosha Nakshatras
1. For a long time since, it is strongly believed that certain Nakshatras are Dosha Nakshatras for the girls.
2. But the same Nakshatras are not considered to be Dosha Nakshatras to the boys.
3. It may appear that even our Sastras have shown discrimination between a girl and a boy in considering the same values in
respect of a horoscope study.
4. Everything envisaged in our ancient Sastras, had some strong reason or reasons behind it.
5. This aspect of showing a discriminatory approach to certain Nakshatras between a boy and a girl should be looked into in
the light of the then being socio-economic conditions and family set up.
6. The following Nakshatras of the girls were attributed with the consequntial effects as given below.
Moolam Nakshatra is believed to take a stake on the life of the father-in-law.
Ayilyam Nakshatra is believed to take a stake on the mother - in - law's life;
Kettai Nakshatra is believed to take a stake on the elder brother-in-law's life;
Visakam Nakshatra is believed to take a stake on the younger brother-in-law's life.
7. It is also believed that only the first two paadams of the respective Nakshatras are virulent, effective and worth fearing
and the 3rd and 4th Paadams are not considered as important.
8. While the horoscopes matching process ensures the protection of a girl, coming into the family of a boy, it also laid some
emphasis on the safety of other persons in the boy's family.
9. The girl is coming into the boy's family and forms part of it. She is going to live in the same house where the father-in-
law, mother-in-law, elder brother-in-law and younger brother-in-law are also living which means the family is a joint
family set-up for the consideration of the above Dosha Nakshatras.
10. The boy is not going to the girl's family and make a living in that house and become a part of the family members and as
such, such a Dosham was not attributed to the Boy's Horoscope.
11. When a girl's Nakshatra was considered as affecting or influencing some other member of the family, it was on the
concept that they all lived together .
12. In the modern days, the father, mother, son and daughter have to separate and live in an altogether different place -
away from their joint home - for the purpose of education and employment.
13. The family's living status is not all the same that was some years back. Like a girl being separated from her family after
the marriage, the modern economic conditions have brought in separation of the son also from the family - in some cases
- even the husband and wife are separated on account of their jobs.
14. When a boy gets married, he is not going to live with his parents or grand parents. His employment necessarily compels
him even before the marriage to live in a separate place.
15. A family consisting of a father, mother, sons, daughters, daughters-in-law and sons-in-law are all only conceptual and
practical in the present day scenario.
16. Obviously, the family of a newly wed boy is going to be nucleur and not necessarily a joint family with the father, newly
married son, the brothers (other sons) together in one family.
17. In the changed economic and social order, when the newly married son is going to live separately and not as a joint family
with his brothers, the question of applying the Doshams in respect of Visakam and Kettai Nakshatras does not carry any
consideration.
18. Similarly, when the parents are not going to live with the boy after the marriage, the question of applying Moolam or
Ayilyam Nakshatras of the girl will also not arise.
19. Even living together as a joint family, our traditional belief that the 3rd and 4th Paadams of Moolam and Ayilyam
Nakshatras are not harmful, is equally a consideration we have to bear in mind.
20. I strongly believe that our forefathers would not have prescribed these as Dosha Nakshatras under the then being social
order.
21. I also strongly believe that the Nakshatra of the girl newly coming into the family frame, can change the fate of someone
in the family, who can otherwise survive the fate.
22. If something bad happens to anyone in the family because of the arrival of a girl with a Dosha Nakshatra, the same bad
thing should have happened even if the girl with a Dosha Nakshatra did not arrive into the family.
23. A Dosha Nakshatra of a girl can not re-write the fate of any other person, if his/her fate is already alright. A Dosha
Nakshatra may be an indicator of something bad and it can never be a creator of anything bad.
24. If it were to be so, the basics of Astrological study itself will be shaken if such an eventuality is not destined to the
affected person. It may or may not be evident in the horoscope.
25. Astrologers are not supposed to be explicit or obvious or even reveal about anything bad. But unless the person
concerned is having such a destiny, nothing untoward will happen, just because a girl with a Dosha Nakshatra is married
into the family.
26. This false belief that the girl's Dosha Nakshatra has caused the damage to the life of some other person itself has caused
irreparable damage to the lives of several girls. This fear has to be first thrown away. God has not created one human to
kill another human. That never happens.
27. If anything bad has happened after the entry a girl with a Dosha Nakshatra into the family, the same thing should have
happened even if the girl was not married into the family.
28. Dosha Nakshatras are not Dosha Nakshatras by their character - but they can be indicators in some cases to something
unpleasant.
29. An horoscope influences only the person to whom it belongs. Relatively it may have some indications as to its
surroundings. It does not infer that a Dosha Nakshatra causes damage to someone else.
5. Raasi Porutham
1. Raasi Porutham is one of the important factors in horoscopes matching. This generally indicates what naturally the
temperament of the horoscope person is and tries to evolve a cohesive theory that the two horoscopes are capable of
going together in life to make a cohesive family.
2. In general, the 6th place, the 8th place and the 12th place are known as hidden places in a horoscope.
3. If the Raasi of the Girl and the Boy fall in 6th, 8th or 12th place to the Raasi of the other one, it is considered as not
matching. In a broad sense, if this aspect is satisfied, Raasi Porutham can be considered as matching.
4. In the normal course, Sama Sapthama Raasis - that is if the Raasis of the Girl and the Boy are 7th to each other - it is
considered as most appropriate.
5. But this Sama Sapthama Raasi principle will not apply to Katagam & Makaram Raasis and also Simham & Kumbam Raasis.
6. Though Katagam / Makaram and Simham / Kumbam are Sama Sapthama Raasis, these are not matching raasis.
7. Normally, except Katagam, Makaram, Simham & Kumbam, the 7th Raasi from that of the girl is most appropriate. In
addition, 1st Raasi (Eka Raasi) - subject to some conditions, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 9th 10th and 11th Raasis from the Raasi of the
girl are also considered as matching.
8. In the case of Eka Raasi - that is if the Raasi of the Girl and the Boy are one and the same - it is desirable that the Girl's
Nakshatra falling before the Boy's Nakshatra are avoided. This however, need not be followed as a mandate.
9. In the case of Eka Raasi where the Girl's Nakshatra falls before the Boy's Nakshatra, Aswini, Krithigai, Rohini, Makam,
Hastham, Swathi, Sadayam and Pooradam are the Girl's Nakshatra, that are exempted from the common rule that the
Girl's Nakshatra should not fall before the Boy's Nakshatra in an Eka Raasi. Again, this need not be considered as a
mandate.

Sashtashtaga Dosham:

If the Girl's Raasi and the Boy's Raasi fall on 6th or 8th to each other, then it is considered as Sashtashtaga Dosham.

This is a general indicator of Sashtashtaga Dosham. There are exemptions. There are certain certain Sashtashtaga Raasis which are
exempted. In Tamil Astro terminologies, these are called Anuhoola Sashtashtagam.

Such Anuhoola Sashtashtaga Raasis are not Doshams - and they can well be considered as matching to each other.

Such Anuhoola Sashtashtagams are favourable matches in so far as Raasi Porutham is concerned.

The Girl's Raasis exempted from Sashtashtaga Dosham in respect of particular Boy's Raasis are follows:
Girl's Raasi Boy's Raasi

Mesham >>>> Kanni
Midhunam >>>> Vrichigam
Thulam >>>> Meenam
Dhanur >>>> Rishabham
Kumbam >>>> Katagam
If Mesham, Midhunam, Thulam, Dhanur or Kumbam is the Raasi of the Girl, it is exempted from Sashtashtaga Dosham from their
respective 6th Raasi Kanni, Vrichigam, Meenam, Rishabham and Katagam respectively.

Other Raasis falling 6th or 8th from the Girl's Raasi suffer Sashtashtaga Dosham.


Thwi-Dwadasa Dossham:

If the Raasi of the Girl and the Boy are the 12th and 2nd to each other, it is called Thwi-Dwadasa Dosham. For example, if Mesham is
the Raasi of the Girl and Meenam is the Raasi of the Boy, Mesham is the 2nd Raasi from Meenam and Meenam is the 12th Raasi to
Mesham.

Such Raasis of the Girl and the Boy next to one another fall under Thwi-Dwadasa Dosham.

In the also, there are exemptions. If Rishabham, Kanni, Vrichigam or Meenam is the Raasi of the Girl, Thwi-Dwadasa Dosham is
exempted with the Raasi which is 12th to the Girl's Raasi. For example, if Rishabham is the Raasi of the Girl, If the Boy's Raasi is
Meenam, it is exempted.

If the Boy's Raasi is Midhunam which is 2nd to Rishabham, the exemption will not apply.
Raasi Athipathi Porutham: In addition to Raasi Porutham, Raasi Athipathi Porutham ensures greater
understanding and cohesiveness in a family life. Another consideration that can support this Porutham is
that, when one horoscope is running a Maha Dasa - favourable or unfavourable - if the Lords of the Raasis
of both the horoscopes are friendly in nature, it will be far good to elicit maximum benefits from the Maha
Dasa. For going into Raasi Athipathi Porutham, we should ensure that the Lords of the two Raasis of the girl
and boy are friendly to each other.

If the Lords of both Raasis are mutually friendly, it is far good.

If one Raasi Athipathi is friendly to the other and the other is neutral to the other, it is moderately
matching.

If both Raasi Athipathis are mutually neutral to each other, it is also moderately matching.
If one Raasi Athipathi is friendly to the other and the other one is rival to the first one, it is not matching.

If one Raasi Athipathi is neutral and the other one is rival to the former one, it is not matching.

Broadly based on the above, let us look at which Raasi of the Boy will match with which Raasi of the Girl.

Mesham & Vrichigam are the two Raasis for which Sevvai is the Athipathi.

Budhan is rival to Sevvai. Sevvai is rival to Sani

As such, Mesham & Vrichigam will not match with Midhunam, Kanni, Makaram and Kumbam.

Rishabham & Thulam are the two Raasis for which Sukran is the Athipathi.

Sooriyan & Chandran are rivals to Sukran. Sukran is rival to Guru.

As such, Simham, Katagam, Dhanur & Meenam will not match with Rishabham & Thulam.

Midhunam & Kanni are the two Raasis for which Budhan is the Athipathi.

Chandran is rival to Budhan. Budhan is rival to Guru.

As such, Katagam, Dhanur & Meenam will not match with Midhunam & Kanni.

Katagam is the Raasi for which Chandran is the Athipathi.

Chandran is rival to Budhan & Sukran.

As such, Katagam will not match with Rishabham, Thulam, Midhunam & Kanni.

Simham is the Raasi for which Sooriyan is the Athipathi.

Sukran, Sani are rivals to Sooriyan.

As such, Simham will not match with Rishabham, Thulam, Makaram & Kumbam.

Dhanur & Meenam are the two Raasis for which Guru is the Athipathi.

Sukran & Budhan are rivals to Guru.

As such, Rishabham, Thulam, Midhunam & Kanni will not match with Dhanur and Meenam.

Makaram & Kumbam are the two Raasis for which Sani is the Athipathi.
Sooriyan, Chandran & Sevvai are rivals to Sani.

As such, Simham, Katagam, Mesham & Vrichigam will not match with Makaram and Kumbam.

Excepting the above combinations of Raasis, all other Raasis can be conceived as matching for the purpose of Raasi Athipathi
Porutham
Sevvai Dosham: Sevvai Dosham is also known as Guja Dosham or Guja Dosh. It is also known as Manglik or
Manglik Dosh in the northern part of our country. In a horoscope, if Sevvai (Mars in English and Mangal in
Hindi) is in the 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th houses from the Lagna or Chandran or Sukran, the horoscope is
supposed to suffer from Sevvai Dosham. A horoscope with Sevvai Dosham should not be considered as
matching for marriage with a horoscope which does not suffer from Sevvai Dosham. This is the general
rule. If a horoscope with Sevvai Dosham is married to a horoscope without Sevvai Dosham, it is feared that
the life of the spouse will be endangered.

Now it need not necessarily be a demise.: In modern days, it can be taken the other way around also. In
the case of incompatible Sevvai Doshams, it may, instead of risking the life of the spouse, may result in a
long term separation, legal separation (divorce) or frequently disrupted marital relationships, taking away
the peace of mind.
The conclusion need not necessarily be the demise of the spouse.

As we have seen earlier, a Sevvai Dosham is constituted if Sevvai is in the 2,4,7,8 or 12th house from the
Lagna, Chandran or Sukran.

Sevvai Dosham is exempted under several conditions.

In some cases there are varying versions of exemptions.

But most of the exemptions are common in different versions.
The following are the exemptions for Sevvai Dosham, even if Sevvai is in the 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th
houses from the Lagna, Chandran or Sukran.

In the case of exemption to Sevvai Dosham, it should be taken as if the horoscope is not suffering from
Sevvai Dosham, since the same is offset by the exemption.
The exemptions are:
1. Whatever be the place of Sevvai in a horoscope, if Sevvai is in his exalted house (Uchcham)
Makaram, or ruling houses (Aakshi houses) Mesham and Vrichigam, Sevvai Dosham is exempted.
2. Wherever is Sevvai in a horoscope, if the Lagna of the horoscope is Katagam or Simham, Sevvai
Dosham is exempted.
3. Whatever is the place of Sevvai with reference to Lagna, Chandran or Sukran, if Sevvai is in Simham
or Kumbam, Sevvai Dosham is exempted.
4. If Sevvai is in Simham, Katagam, Dhanur or Meenam Raasis, Sevvai Dosham is exempted.
5. If Sevvai is associated with Sani, Raahu or Kethu or if Sevvai is receiving the aspect (Paarvai) of Sani,
Raahu or Kethu, Sevvai Dosham is exempted.
6. If the Lord of the house where Sevvai is positioned in the horoscope, from where Sevvai Dosham is
constituted, is either in Kendra Sthanas or Thri-Kona Sthanas, (1,4,5,7,9,10 houses), Sevvai Dosham
is exempted.
7. If Sevvai is associated with Guru or Chandran, Sevvai Dosham is exempted.
8. If Sevvai is in the 2nd house from the Lagna or Chandran or Sukran, and if such a 2nd house
happens to be Midhunam or Kanni, Sevvai Dosham is exempted.
9. If Sevvai is in the 4th house from Lagna, Chandran or Sukran, and if such a house is Mesham or
Vrichigam, Sevvai Dosham is exempted. (In Mesham and Vrichigam, Sevvai Dosham is also
exempted as a general rule.
10. If Sevvai is in the 7th house and if the 7th house is Makaram or Katagam, Sevvai Dosham is
exempted.
11. If Sevvai is in the 8th house, and if the 8th house is Dhanur or Meenam, Sevvai Dosham is
exempted.
12. If Sevvai is in the 12th house, and if the 12th house is Thulam or Rishabham, Sevvai Dosham is
exempted.
13. If Sevvai is associated with Sooriyan or Budhan or aspected by Sooriyan or Budhan, Sevvai Dosham
is exempted.

If - and only if - Sevvai in the 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12 house from Lagna, Chandran or Sukran, does not fall
under any of the above exemptions, it should be conceived that the horoscope suffers from Sevvai
Dosham.

Normally it is believed that a horoscope with Sevvai Dosham should be married only to a person with
Sevvai Dosham. Otherwise, it is feared to have an impact on the life of the spouse.

No one will dare risk the chances of life. As such, it has not been tried otherwise - atleast as far as my
knowledge goes.

Hence the concept of Sevvai Dosham has necessarily to be applied in all horoscopes matching as a social
necessity..

..

Marriage compatibility is an important contribution of Jyotish to the world as only it can foresee any problems in the
married life of a couple and can precisely determine which area shall the problem root from. This is done with kuta
matching as enumerated by Harihara in his immortal classic Prasna Marga. However, it is not possible to match all the
kutas and here we must appreciate that nothing in this world is perfect and we need to compromise at various places.
Compromises may be made in various kutas, however it should not be made in the five important kutas namely vasya,
mahendra, yoni, Janma Rasi and lord of the Janma Rasi. There are three more kutas, which are to be considered very
important, viz., gana, dina and stree-deergha. Besides this the Brahmins should also consider Gotra Kuta.
There are two kinds of Kuta, one which contribute points towards the 36 point scheme and the other does not. The
Kutas which contribute to the 36 point schemes are Nadi, Rasi, Gana, Graha Maitri, Yoni, Dina, Vasya and Varna in the
decreasing order of importance, with nadi kuta contributing the maximum of 8 points and Varna Kuta contributing the
minimum of 1. Even though these kutas can be used for getting a mathematical value of relative compatibility, what is
more important is to understand the nature of compatibitlity. Thus, the kutas which do not contribute to the kutas
need not be ignored and checked for various aspects of marital relationship.
Point based Kuta: the maximum points that can be attained in each of the kutas are mentioned against each of the
kuta in brackets.
1. Nadi Kuta: (8) Compatibility of physiological aspects
Nadi means several things but in reference to astrology, it signifies pulse or nervous energy indicating the
physiological and to a certain extent hereditary factors. The Hindu medical works enumerate three Nadis or
humours, viz., Vatha (wind), Pitha (bile) and Sleshma (phlegm). A boy with a predominantly windy or
phlegmatic or bilious constitution should not marry a girl of the same type. The girl should belong to a
different temperament.
The three Nadis are ruled by the different constellations as follows:
Vatha (Wind) Pitta (Bile) Sleshma (phlegm) Vata Pitta Sleshma
Aswini Bharani Krittika Jyeshata Anuradha Visakha
Ardra Mrigasira Rohini Moola Poorvashadha Uttarasnadha
Punaravasu Pushyami Aslesha Satabhisha Dhanishta Sravana
Uttara Phalguni Purva Phalguni Makha Poorvabhadara Uttarbhadra Revati
Hasta Chitta Swati
Principle: If the constellation of the groom and bride fall in different columns, then agreement between the
couple will be good. If the stars of the bride and groom fall in the first of last column, it is passable; however
they should not fall in the middle column.

Nakshatra Pada Kuta Principle: If Nadi Kuta is not present on the basis of the Nakshatras, then the same may be
reckoned taking into account the Nakshatra Padas. Thus, the different quarters will be governed by the three
humors (Nadis). Beginning from Aswini 1, the counting should be done forwards and backwards in threes as given
below:
Vatha (Wind) Pitta (Bile) Sleshma (phlegm)
Aswini 1 Aswini 2 Aswini 3
Barani 2 Barani 1 Barani 4
Barani 3 Barani 4 Krittika 1
Krittika 4 Krittika 3 Krittika 2
Rohini 1 Rohini 2 Rohini 3
In the example considered above, both the constellations
fall in the middle line and hence Nadi Kuta is completely
absent.

12. Nadi Kuta. - This is considered to be the most important and at the same time the most significant Kuta. In
Sanskrit, Nadi means several things but in reference to astrology, it signifies pulse or nervous energy indicating the
physiological and, to a certain extent, hereditary factors. The Hindu medical works, such as Ayurveda, Shushruta
samhita, Nimi Tantra etc., enumerate three Nadis or humours, viz., Vatha (wind), Pitha (bile) and Sleshma - Kapha
(phlegm). A boy with a predominantly windy or phlegmatic or bilious constitution should not marry a girl of the
same type. The girl should belong to a different temperament. The three Nadis are ruled by the different
constellations as follows:-
VATA PITHA SLESHMA (kapha)
Aswini Bharani Krittika
Punarvasu Pushyami Aslesha
Uttara Purva Makha
Hasta Chitta Swati
Jyestha Anuradha Visakha
Mula Poorvashadha Uttarashadha
Satabhisha Dhanistha Sravana
Purvabhadra Uttarabhadra Revati
Aridra Mrigasira Rohini
If the constellation of the boy and the girl fall in different rows, then agreement between the couple will be good.
They both should not fall in the middle least there will be many fights, as they are too fiery by nature. Stars of the
couple may fall in the first and last line under certain circumstances.
If Nadi Kuta is not present on the basis of the Nakshatras, then the same may be reckoned taking into account the
Nakshatra Padas. Thus, the different quarters will be governed by the three humours (Nadis) thus:
Aswini 1 Aswini 2 Aswini 3
Bharani 2 Bharani 1 Aswini 4
Bharani 3 Bharani 4 Krittika 1
Krittika 4 Krittika 3 Krittika 2
Rohini 1 Rohini 2 Rohini 3
Beginning from Aswini 1, the counting should be done forwards and backwards in
threes, as given above. The unit ascribed for this Kuta is 8. (eight)
In the example considered above, both the constellations fall in the middle line and
hence Nadi Kuta is completely absent, no score. Appendix 1 gives a table for
measuring the agreement units. In the first column, longitudinal, the constellations of
the bride are given. In the first horizontal column the boys Nakshatra is given. Take
the figure in the column where the girl's and boys stars intersect. Suppose the boy's
star is Mrigasira 1, the Rasi being Taurus. The girl's star is Satabhishakam 2, Rasi
being Kumbha (Aquarius). Running down our eye from Taurus, Mrigasira 2
(horizontal 1st column) to the horizontal line of Satabhishakam 4, Kumbha we find
the figure 26.5 as the total units of agreement.
2. Rasi Kuta: (7) Happiness, auspiciousness and harmony in marriage

Principle 1: The male born in the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th Rasis from that of the female should not enter into
wedlock. If both have the same Janma Rasi, marriage can only be done provided both are not of the same Janma
Nakshatra. This means that the Janma Rasi of the man should not be in the Adrisya portion from the Janma Rasi
from the woman. From any sign, the Adrisya (Invisible half) are the Lagna (beyond the cusp) to the 7th (before the
Cusp), for practical purpose this can be taken as 2nd to 6th. Madhavacharya has given more specific effect of the
placement of the males Janma rasi in the unfavorable positions from the females Janma rasi. They are as follows:
2nd: Loss of Money
3rd: Sorrow
4th: Quarrels and Misunderstanding
5th: Loss of Children
6th: Diseases, Danger and Separation
Principle 2: Along with the placement mentioned above, the placement in the 8th and 12th from the Janma rasi of
the Women is not favorable. This is understandable, that the Dusthana placement of the mans rasi from that of
womens cannot be favorable for conjugal happiness as they would either be inimical or indifferent from each
other.
Principle 3: Even if the lords of the mans and womans rasis are foe, if they are 7th from each other, this can be
accepted as very good.
Riders:
1. If the Janma Rasi is of the male is not in a favorable place from the Janma Rasi of the Female, the blemish
can be reduced, if the lord of those rasis are mutually friendly. However, the blemish intensifies, if the lords
are inimically disposed.
2. When the women is born in an odd Janma Rasi, then the man born in the 6th and 8th there from can be
taken as an optional measure. If she is born in even Janma Rasi, the man born in the 6th should be rejected
and the 8th can be accepted.
3. If the Janma Rasi of both the man and women have vasya and do not have vedha, then the 6th and 8th
position of the mans rasi from the womans one can be accepted. We shall study the vasya and vedha
dosha later
4. Harihara does not attach much blemish to the 3rd and 4th house positions for the Janma Rasi of the male
from that of the female as this shall neither indicate poverty, nor serious quarrels leading to estrangement
nor loss of children. Sorrow is a part and parcel of human birth and this should not be taken as a criterion
for marriage dissolution.
5. The same Janma Rasi is allowed as long as the couples dont have the same Janma Nakshatra. However, if
they happen to be the same, marriage is permissible provided it is not Jyestha, Moola, Purva-ashadha,
Pushya, Aslesha, Magha, Hasta, Rohini, Dhanistha, Shatabhisaj, Ardra or Bharani.
