Marriage Compatibility and Understanding Your Spouse

Marriage Compatibility and Understanding Your Spouse

Understanding About Spouse and Marriage Compatibility is an important matter in Indian traditions. The number of traditional ‘ arranged marriages in India is decreasing and a question naturally coming up in people’s minds is, Do we need to check for compatibility in the case of ‘ love marriage’?. In my opinion, a compatibility check is not needed for a couple who is already in a relationship. They are compatible with each other and that is the reason they are in a relationship.

In Vedic Astrology, there is multiple logic used to check for compatibility. Porutham or Dashakoot is used in Kerala, almost a similar method is used in Tamil Nadu and other South Indian States. AshtaKoot Guna Milan method is used in North India.

In South India, compatibility is further checked by Janam Kundali which is considered far superior to just checking the birth nakshatra of female and male as seen in dashakoot or ashtakoot matching. This check is known as paapa samyam where the weightage of malefic planets is calculated carefully in both birth horoscopes. An equal weight means the couple can get along with each other during challenges and stress. A similar check known as dasha sandhi is also carried out where a maha dasha transition is checked as the transition period of a maha dasha (last 1 year's period of a maha dasha) is generally considered stressful and is not recommended for a marriage relationship. Both Paapa samyam and dasha sandhi are checked alongside dashakoot or porutham for more clarity.

A birth chart analysis of the couple is the best option when it comes to compatibility and matters related to the spouse. An Astrologer will be able to closely analyze the 7th house, 7th lord, Venus and Jupiter, Navamsa or D-9 chart, and optionally saptamsa or D-7 chart

A proper analysis can give you an idea about the Spouse’s general character, health, and other matters that may impact the marriage union.

Matters related to relationship, love, Marriage, and Sex are connected with the 7th house, 7th lord, and Venus in a birth chart. Sage Parashara in his Brihat Parasha Hora Shastra, mentioned an important point regarding the 7th house. According to him, the 7th house without any planet is better. Since the 7th house is known as the Maraka house or killer house, a planet positioned in that house may become a Maraka Grha or a killer planet for that person.

Venus is the significator of Marriage and if this planet is situated in the 7th house, it will only destroy matters related to marriage. Venus will tend to ‘overdo’ things. Or in other words, expectations of the person from their spouse will be high and over the years the relationship may get strained.

Mars is a well-known planet that stands against marriage. Mars when afflicting the 7th house of a person, will for sure bring some disharmony to their relationship. But there is another villain who is capable to bring separation and divorce, and it is Sun. In Modern days, the ego is ‘the villain’ in relationships and so an afflicted Sun in connection with the 7th house is capable to cause more damage than Mars, Ketu, or Saturn.

So marriage compatibility in Vedic astrology is one of the best tools to understand ourselves and our spouse, which in turn will help us to mould and adjust ourselves for better harmony in married life.

The Sun sign is the Zodiac sign where the Sun is situated during your birth. The Sun sign calculation, according to the western system of astrology, is different from Vedic Astrology. For this reason, some of you may see a difference in the Sun signs per the western system and Vedic birth chart. Sun represents ego, authority, control, intelligence and wisdom. Since Sun represents your Atma or soul, the Sun sign is connected with eternal Karma. Even though the Sun sign is not displaying your visible character, it will reflect your inner thoughts.

The Moon Sign is the Zodiac sign where Moon is posited during your birth. This Sign or Rashi is also known as Janma Rashi or Birth Rashi. In Vedic astrology, this sign is also known as Chandra Lagna and is considered the second most important sign next to Lagna or Ascendant. Since Moon represents your mind, this sign says many things about your personality and character. Your thought process defines your future and destiny, so this sign plays a crucial role in your birth chart.

The Lagna or Ascendant is the rising sign during your birth. Lagna can be considered as 'YOU' in this world. Lagna is also acting as a planet effectively. The lord of this sign is known as Lagna Lord or Lagnesh or Ascendant lord. The most influential planet in your birth chart is also the ascendant lord. This planet will be a natural yoga karaka and a beneficial planet for you. Lagna shows your personality and visible character. It also denotes your vitality and general well-being. This sign is the 1st house among 12 houses in the birth chart. Houses are counted clockwise from Lagna in a South Indian Chart and anti-clockwise direction in a North Indian Chart. - Read More about Lagna and how it is calculated and the difference between Rashi and Lagna - Click Here

Planets in Vedic Astrology are known as Navagraha, or nine planets. Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn are the Saptha Grahas or actual planets. Rahu and Ketu are Chaya grahas or Shadow planets or, in other words, mathematical points. Planets represent our lives and activities in this world, or otherwise, it defines us, the Humans. Our actions, interactions, Karma etc., are connected with these planets, their conjunctions, aspects, positions etc.

Bhava or House represents an area of life and matters related to our life here. Like 12 zodiac signs, there are 12 houses. Houses are counted from Lagna, which is the first House. So when someone says about 4th House, it means 4th House counted from Lagna. - Read more about Bhava or House - Click Here

Nakshatras, or Stars in Vedic astrology, act as a fixed reference point for tracking and calculating the movements of planets. There are 27 (28 including Abhijit Nakshatra) Nakshatras in the Zodiac, and it is equally divided and spread across the 12 Zodiac signs. Each Zodiac sign is capable of containing 2 and 1/4 of Nakshatras. Nakshatras are capable of influencing the characters of a planet which is passing by them. Nakshatra, where Moon is stationed during birth, becomes a person's Birth Star or Janma Nakshatra.

Rashi is generally referred to as a Zodiac sign in Vedic Astrology. There are 12 Rashis in the Zodiac, starting from Aries (Mesha/Medam), Taurus (Vrishab/Idavam), Gemini (Mithuna/Mithunam), Cancer (Karka/Karkidakam), Leo (Singha/Chingam), Virgo (Kanya/Kanni), Libra (Tula/Thulaam), Scorpio (Vrischika/Vrischikam), Sagittarius (Dhanu), Capricorn (Makara/Makaram), Aquarius (Kumba/Kumbam), Pisces (Meena/Meenam)

A Rashi chart or D1 chart is the primary birth chart in Vedic astrology. Rashi chart shows the planet's position and placements in a Rashi sign during your birth. Rashi chart is analysed from a reference point known as Lagna or Ascendant, which becomes the 1st house in a Rashi chart.

A Bhava Chart or chalit chart is a vital addition to Vedic astrology, which helps an astrologer refine the exact position of a planet concerning houses in the birth chart. This chart is prepared by making the Lagna the midpoint of the first house and then calculating the rest of the houses. An astrologer needs to consider any shift of houses created by a planet in a bhava chart while analysing a horoscope.

Drishti, or aspect of a planet, is used when a planet influences another planet or house by sitting 180 degrees opposite the other planet. In Vedic astrology, there are special aspects cast by some planets. For example, Jupiter is capable of aspecting while positioned at 180 deg, 120 deg and 240 deg from a planet or house. Similarly, Saturn can aspect at 180, 60 and 270 degrees, and Mars can aspect at 180, 90 and 210 degrees. All other planets can aspect at 180 degrees from another planet or house.

Shub/Paap Graha in Vedic astrology referred to the malefic and benefic nature of the planet. Sun, Saturn, Mars, Rahu and Ketu are considered natural malefic planets. Jupiter and Venus are Natural Benefics. Moon will be regarded as a natural benefic if birth thithi is between Shukla paksha shashti and Krishna paksha shashti. Mercury will be considered malefic if, in conjunction with other malefic planets.
