Marriage is one of the most stressful events a person can undertake. It rates second to death of a beloved. This is because of the committment, pressures, sacrifices and changes – deep changes that marriage brings to a couple’s life. Before, when two were apart, they are now engaged in many things together. Astrology is a tool of prediction, it has precision, tolerances, remedies and guidance. So what does Marriage compatibility mean and how does Vedic Astrology help?
The most popular Vedic astrology marriage compatibility analysis method is through the Asht-Koot Milan (8-point checking). The 8 Kutas have 36 gunas in all and the compatibility of the match is assessed through a scoring system. The higher the score, the better the match.
Usually a score of 18 is considered as the acceptable cut-off for a good match. Each Koota of the analysis stands for a particular aspect. This report will give you the kuta score for the match and the basic conclusion.
Every couple bumps into issues where she’d prefer they do one thing and he’d prefer another. Every couple has moments of disagreement, disappointment, and distress. The difference lies in what couples say and do at these times. Do they have the skills to be able to stay cooperative so they can talk over the problem in a mutually respectful way? Or do they become angry and speak aggressively to each other, or equally problematic, avoid discussing problems, drift apart, and eventually have affairs? These are the issues that the Astrologer considers when looking for compatibility between marriage partners in a proposal.
“The point of marriage is not to create a quick commonality by tearing down all boundaries; on the contrary, a good marriage is one in which each partner appoints the other to be the guardian of his solitude, and thus show each other the greatest possible trust.
A merging of two people is an impossibility, and where it seems to exist, it is a hemming-in, a mutual consent that robs one party or both parties of their fullest freedom and development.
But once the realization is accepted that even between the closest people infinite distances exist, a marvelous living side-by-side can grow for them, if they succeed in loving the expanse between them, which gives them the possibility of always seeing each other as a whole and before an immense sky.
Brihat Parashara on Marriage:
The affectionate relationship between an employer and employee (master and servant) and man and women (husband and wife) will be invariable and stable if they possess the same attributes.
If the 7th bhava be without a planet (without strength) and without benefic aspect, the female born will have a coward and contemptible wretch for her husband.
When the 7th house is a moveable sign, the husband will always be away from home.
Like any yoga, marriage creates both stability and bondage. Whether the public union of marriage is experienced as a blessing or a curse depends on the condition of the 7th House, and its relationship to each of the other 11 houses of the astrological chart.
