So what is the importance of Matchmaking in marriage? What does it say? Is it really important? Let me explain what role Astrology has to play in a person’s married life and why Matchmaking is important for us.
- How compatible are the Stars of the two Souls
One major reason for the Matchmaking before marriage is to understand how compatible the bride and groom are. If two persons are not compatible with each other, If their nature and character is completely different, it becomes very tough for them to Stay together for a Long period of time. As per our Vedic Astrology, there are 36 Gunas in total which Should be matched to conclude how compatible the two people are and how prosperous and harmonious their life after marriage will be. Each of the Gunas has different points and each point indicates a different factor of life. It also indicates the effects of their individual stars and destinies on each other. By matching kundali or Horoscope we can also determine conjugal harmony.
- Financial Stability and Career Prospects
When two people unite in the sacred relationship of marriage, the movement of their planets has an effect not only on their lives, but on each other’s lives too. By matching kundli, financial stability and job prospects are also looked into with great care. Financial Stability plays an important Role in our Life. Hence the Luck and fortune of Boy as well as Girl Should be properly analysed.
- Compatibility to bear Offspring
The Married Life do not become complete without a child. So with Horoscope matching we can come to know that whether both the Boy or Girl has the Yoga for child or not. During the time of Matchmaking child or Progeny should be checked Very carefully. Some People do have Child Yoga in their chart. In Such Situation if they can marry such a Person who is having a Strong Yoga for Child, the couple can get the happiness of child. Since a family is considered complete only after the birth of a child, parents are very particular to secure this happiness for their children after marriage.
- Is this a Good time to perform the Marriage
It is Possible that Sometime Everything is fine , Horoscopes are also Perfectly Matched, But the Time is not Favorable. The result or Outcome of any task performed in Unfavourable time is bound to be unfavorable.
Matchmaking by Date of Birth
Matchmaking by Date of Birth is most important method to find out the compatibility between the bride and the groom. In Astrology, Matchmaking by Date of Birth is calculated on the basis of the planets in the natal chart. As it is a very complicated process, it needs a very in-depth knowledge in Vedic Astrology. With the vast knowledge on the Stars and their transit, an Astrologer can exactly tell you whether you and your would-be are compatible to each other or not. If there are problems, remedies are also prescribed.
What is the actual process of Kundli Matching for marriage
Several methods are followed for matching horoscopes for marriage. In earlier time, The Kundali Matching was given Due importance before Marriage and As a result, most of the marriages used to be successful.
Some People Wants to have Matchmaking by name or through Numerology. But the Process of Matchmaking by Date of birth is the most Accurate and reliable one.
In traditional Hindu astrology for matching of horoscopes between bride and bridegroom, the Rashi or sign and the Nakshatra or constellation in which the Moon is placed in both horoscopes are only considered. Though there are many other aspects which are not studied. It has been found that the ready made compatibility points table given for 36 points for Moon Rashi and Nakshatra in many books and Panchangas for matching both the horoscopes is not correct.
You Should read my Actual Kundali Matching Process for this.
The factors considered by astrologers on the basis of Moon Rashi and Nakshatra are Varna, Vasya, Graha Maitri or Rasyadhipati and Rashi Kuta. The factors for moon Nakshatra are Dina Kuta or Tara Bala, Yoni Kuta, Gana Kuta, Nadi Kuta, Rajju, Vedha, Mahendra and Stree Deergha. This process of Matching Horoscopes on the Basis of Moon Star is known as Ashtakoota Matching.
Each of the aforementioned factors represents some distinct aspects and those are –
Varna- Spiritual or Ego development
Vasya- Magnetic control and Amenability
Graha Maitri(Rasyadhipati)- Psychological disposition, Mental qualities, Affection etc.
Yoni Kuta- Physical contact
Gana Kuta- Character and Temperament
Nadi Kuta- Pulse and Nervous energy, Physiological and Hereditary factors
Rajju- Married life duration and Widowhood
Mahendra- Well-being, Children, Longevity
The position of the Moon is also studied with respect to its hemming on sides, aspects and associations with natural malefic planets and its Ashtak Varga chart.
But this Matching of charts with Only Moon and Moon Naskshatra is not a Best Practice. The Best matchmaking Process is Ashtakoota Matching along with detailed Study of the Individual Horoscopes. There are many other important factors which Should considered in both the horoscopes and these are:
1) Mangal or Mars Dosha, position of Mars from Venus, Moon, Ascendant or Lagna for family and conjugal happiness.
2) Dosha due to four other natural malefic planets- Saturn, Rahu, Ketu and Sun.
3) Ascendants with respect to each other, hemming on both sides by natural malefic planets and 6th, 8th or 12th house lords in the ascendant.
4) Ascendant lords with respect to their placement to each other, friendly or enemy relationship, in 6th, 8th or 12th houses and aspect or association with natural malefics.
5) 7th house lords or marriage lords with respect to points similar to ascendant lords.
6) 8th house lords or lords of longevity with respect to placement to each other and relationship.
7) Factors relating to the other eight planets – Sun, Mars, Rahu, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury, Ketu and Venus with respect to their placement to each other and the relationship between the lords of the houses where they are positioned.
8) The position of Ascendant and Moon to each other.
9) The position of significators for Marriage and Energy Venus and Mars to each other.
10) Association and aspects of Venus by natural malefic.
A good Professional Matchmaker will never be worried with the ashtakoota points. Because ashtakoota points are calculated only based upon Moon Nakshatra. But if the Individual Horoscopes are Favorable and Supportive, The Marriage can be Performed. The Biggest astrologer of this century Late Mr. B. V. Raman always Suggested the complete Analysis of the Charts and he always suggested not to depend on Ashtakoota Points. Any Good Professional Matchmaker will always check the Individual Chart of the Boy and Girl to See various aspect that will impact the Married Life like Mental compatibility, Nature and character, Married Life, Child birth etc. This is the best matchmaking Process. In Such Case bride and groom can perform Marriage even with less than 10 Ashtakoota Point and the relationship will be harmonious.
