Effect of Ashtakoot Milan in a Married Life

Effect of Ashtakoot Milan in a Married Life  

According to Hindu scriptural texts, marriage is a religious relationship. It shouldn’t be considered as an ordinary relationship. The mental, physical, intellectual and religious features of bride and groom should be matched necessarily. Only mental compatibility is not enough because if other elements don’t match and are inimical to each other, in that case marital relation can turn into a painful experience. Our ancient Rishis laid down several rules for public welfare with the help of their divine vision, experience, the extensive investigation and research. We can succeed in arranging the marriages of our children without having any worry about the future of their married life if we follow these rules thoughtfully after understanding them properly. However, by violating them we shall be creating only a bed of roses for our children. Following 4 factors should be studied to know about the stability in one’s married life. • Promise of marital happiness. • Ashtakoota matching. • Manglik Dosa matching. • Strength of Navansha chart. Sometimes marital happiness is promised in one chart but denied in the chart of spouse, this indication is not enough for a good match. If promise of happy married life is indicated in both charts it can result in happy married life but Manglik Dosa matching and Ashtakoota matching should not be overlooked. The indications of multiple relationships in a chart also ruin marital happiness. The human tendency is to seek maximum compatibility because fidelity comes due to natural inclination towards a relationship. Fidelity out of compulsion is not reliable. When mind wanders, malefic planets get an opportunity to intervene. It is inevitably essential to study the horoscopes by keeping in mind the above mentioned principles to ensure happy married life. We should also study the elements of all signs. Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are fiery signs. Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn are earthy signs. Gemini, Libra and Aquarius are airy signs. Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are classified as watery signs. Water extinguishes fire therefore water is inimical to fire. Fire burns earth but air supports fire to burn vigorously. Therefore fire and air elements are friendly. Similarly earth turns green with the irrigation of water therefore earth and water are friendly elements. But air and fire are inimical to earth and water. Therefore now we can know which signs are friendly to each other and accordingly you can proceed into the conversation regarding marriage. For instance if Moon is in fiery sign in male’s chart and in a watery sign in female’s chart and lagna is earthy sign it might create the possibility of problems in the internal aspect of their relationship. Gun Milan is an ancient 8-fold Vedic test of horoscope matching between a man and woman's charts for marriage based only on the placement of one planet Moon. The Natal Charts of the man and the woman are drawn and comparatively tested for compatibility in eight different ways. Each test has a score. While the maximum points that can be achieved under each test are different, the full 8-fold test can yield a maximum score of 36 points which judges how compatible you two are by seeing the zodiac signs and horoscopes . A score of 18 is deemed to be the minimum for a reasonable match. Marriages are not recommended for a result below 18. Another important aspect of Marriage Compatibility is Manglik Match (Mars Consideration) which is believed to be important for success of married life and well being of both male and Female partner. More than the Gun Milan it is important to get the complete horoscopes matched. If horoscopes are not matching properly then they can be unhappy, divorce may be happen, differences of opinion etc. would be faced. So complete horoscope matching is very important for any marriage. Below said points should be kept in mind before match making: • What is the strength of the horoscope on marriage front? • Age of both person (longevity) • Is there any Vidhur yog or Vaidhavya yog?( widow hood yoga) • Prosperity and other related stuff Matching • Matching of malefic planets which affected marital houses in horoscope • Matching of married life houses in horoscope • Matchmaking of significant planet of marriage • Dasha matching • Transit matching • Manglik dosha matching • Ashtakoot matching Yog of Vishkanya • Dosh samveyam • Dasha sandhi • If any problem is there, then what kind of problem & their solutions with remedies Modern Relevance Since these tests were formulated 3,000 years ago and based on the social norms and the role of marriage in the ancient society, we have also made this ancient test applicable to the new millennium by pointing out the basis of how the tests were scored, so that you can apply your own judgment of how important a particular aspect is in your personal relationship. Although the techniques and the basis of this comparison originated in ancient times, the analysis has not lost its relevance today. This analysis brings out the difference in personality and nature between two people in a quantitative and more precise manner than any other astrological tool. It proves to be very accurate and relevant even today in gauging compatibility and the areas of strengths and weakness in a relationship. The Scoring System of Gun Milan Ancient principles in the scoring system and the weightage given to various aspects are given as per the vedic texts. However, we want you to understand the principles behind it completely. All these factors combine together to make up 36 points or GUNAS. If a couple scores less than 18 then the match should be rejected. .If the score is between 18 - 24, then the match is acceptable (average). If the score is between 25 - 32 then the match is very good (above average). If the score is above 32 then technically the match is excellent but a lot of other factors have to be checked since both persons will be of same nature and that is not conducive to long-term relationship. The system by which this test assigns scores is when and if in a relationship, the horoscope chart of a woman rates higher and is superior in intellectual, mental or physical powers than the chart of the man's, then the test will fail and there will be a low score or a zero score. The highest score is also given in this test in a woman's ability to be a mother. We encourage you to study this test very closely for its ability to point out the difference in personality and ego between two different people and their strengths and weakness in maintaining a nurturing, caring and growing relationship over time. The FIRST Test: Mental Compatibility (Varna) This test has a maximum value of 1 point and shows the basic potential of a person and the person's inherent skills and abilities. This also includes the personal egos of the partners and compatibility between their egos. A partnership in which the woman has higher intellectual and spiritual qualities will score low in this test. For purposes of this test, personalities are divided into four classes to indicate potential and inherent abilities. They are as follows: This test has a maximum value of 1 point and shows the basic potential of a person and the person's inherent skills and abilities. This also includes the personal egos of the partners and compatibility between their egos. A partnership in which the woman has higher intellectual and spiritual qualities will score low in this test. For purposes of this test, personalities are divided into four classes to indicate potential and inherent abilities. They are as follows: Brahmin or Priests – They are the intellectuals and philosophers. Their role in society is that of a Guru or a teacher. They were traditionally spiritual leaders and were not expected to perform physical labour. Society looked up to them and looked after them. They have a high development of spiritual and mental ability. Kshatriya or Warriors – They form the leaders and the ruling class who are powerful people and master of strategy and battle. They were traditionally the Kings and protectors of society. They are considered very courageous and are decisive in their actions. Vaishya or Merchants/Business people – They belong to the professional or business class of people who perform all the useful and economic functions of society. They are skilled in different crafts and professions, signifying tremendous abilities. Shudra or Labourers/Service people — They belong to the normal hard-working class who had a tremendous sense of service to society. Majority of the work in society fell upon them; hence they also have an inherent sense of responsibility. The above mentioned categorization is based on old Vedic Principles mentioned in our Vedic text books and not at all related to any particular caste or creed in modern society. The Second Test: Power compatibility (Vashya) This test has a maximum value of 2 points and shows the power equation between the partners. It also reflects who will be the more dominant partner in the relationship. For the purposes of this test, Vedic principles again divide personalities into 5 different categories reflecting the difference in power status. These are classified by symbols of different living creatures. The test scores the compatibility between these classifications and the inherent or natural balance of power. Once again, if a woman has a higher power status, the score will be low. The classifications are as follows: Manav or Human. Humans are normally individualistic, they like to have control, have their own opinions and the power to discriminate. Vanchar or Creature of the Jungle. Jungle creatures that are powerful and those that are higher in the food chain like Tigers and Lions, etc. fall into this category. Chatushpad or Four-Legged Creature. Animals that are less powerful like deer and goat and sheep fall in this category. Jalchar or Creature of Water. Once again they have their own power and their own sphere of influence. Keet or Insect. They are essential to any ecological balance and exert a quiet power that is essential for survival. Thus, they have their own strengths and area of influence. The Third Test: Birth Star Compatibility ( Tara) Third test: This test has a maximum value of 3 points and indicates the health, well-being and compatibility of the partners after marriage. Birth Stars of both the partners. For purposes of this test, the inter-relationship of the birth stars (Tara) are looked at and compared. Vedic Astrology rates the interrelationship as being naturally auspicious or inauspicious. This test rates the relationship of the birth stars as reflected in each partner's natal chart. There are 9 categories of birth stars—Janma, Sampat, Vipata, Kshema, Pratyari, Sadhaka, Vadha, Mitra and Ati-mitra. The counting is done from Her Birth Star to that of His and from His Birth Star to that of Her's. If by dividing each of them by the other, the remainder comes to 3, 5, 7 then the Tara is inauspicious. If the remainder comes to 1, 2, 4, 6 8, 0 then it is auspicious. The points are determined according to the auspicious and inauspicious Birth Stars of both the partners. The Fourth Test: Physical and sexual compatibility (Yoni) This test has a maximum value of 4 points and shows sexual and biological compatibility, as well as mutual love and sexual inclinations of the partners reflecting attraction, love and Sexual joy. For the purposes of this test, the relationship between the "Nakshatra" in the two natal charts are compared and each Nakshatra is given the characteristic of an animal. Once again, animals have either a natural affinity, or are neutral or enemies to each other. The maximum score of 4 is obtained in this test when Yoni or the animal character personified is the same for both Man and Woman. The minimum score of 0 is obtained in this test when the Yoni or the animal characteristics personified, of Man and Woman are natural enemies. For example, if the Yonis of the couple belong to Serpent and Mongoose category, the score will be zero in this test. The 14 animal characteristics that are endowed on the personalities are as follows: Ashwa or Horse Gaja or Elephant Mesha or Ram Sarpa or Serpent Swah or Dog Marjarah or Tom/Cat Mushika or Rat Gau or Cow Mahisha or Buffalo Vyagrah or Tiger Mriga or Deer Vanara or Monkey Nakula or Mongoose Singha or Lion The Fifth Test: Planetary Harmony (Grahamaitri ) This test has a maximum value of 5 points. It shows progeny prospects, mental qualities and mutual affection between the partners. It also shows one's outlook, objective and intellectual level as well as spiritual plane of existence. It reflects the fundamental difference in daily behaviour, attitude and norm by which the man and woman relate to each other. For the purposes of this test, the relationship between the different planetary lords of the Moon Sign in each partner's natal chart is compared. Vedic Astrology attributes the planets either to be natural friends or enemies or neutral to each other. The 7 planets are as follows: Surya or Sun Chandra or Moon Mangal or Mars Budh or Mercury Guru or Jupiter Shukra or Venus Shani or Saturn The Sixth Test: Compatibility of nature (Gana) This test has a maximum value of 6 and shows the nature of the two different individuals at a mundane level, and indicates the compatibility of temperament and mutual daily behaviour, for happiness and prosperity in their lives. For purposes of this test, by categorizing persons into 3 separate classes, the inherent spiritual and materialistic values of the two persons are compared and rated for compatibility. Once again, if the woman were to score higher points spiritually, the scores will be low. They are as follows: Devata or Godly — This represents a person who is more spiritual than materialistic. Manushya or Mortal — This indicates a person who has an even balance between the spiritual and the materialistic. Rakshasa or Demon — This represents a person who is more materialistic than spiritual This is an important test with high values. The maximum point of 6 is obtained when both partners belong to the same 'Gana'. This signifies an identical outlook towards life. The scores in this test can be 6, 5, 1 or 0. The minimum score of 0 is obtained when either partner belongs to a "Demon" category. However, if both were to belong to the Demon category, the score would be high. Marriage or a long-term relationship between inimical Ganas brings quarrels, disharmony, separation and divorce. The above mentioned categorization is based on old Vedic Principles mentioned in our Vedic text books. The Seventh Test: Compatibility between Zodiac Moon signs (Bhakut) This test has a maximum value of 7 and is a crucial test to check overall prosperity in the growth of family, family welfare and economic prosperity after marriage. For purposes of this test, the compatibility between the Zodiac Moon Signs are compared by checking the angles created by these signs in the two different charts. The Moon Signs are as follows: Mesh or Aries Vrisha or Taurus Mithun or Gemini Kark or Cancer Singha or Leo Kanya or Virgo Tula or Libra Brischik or Scorpio Dhanu or Sagittarius Makar or Capricorn Kumbha or Aquarius Meena or Pisces The Eighth Test: Compatibility between Life forces (Nadi) This test that has the highest value of 8 shows the pulse and nervous energy indicating the physiological and heredity factor. This test also measures the genetic compatibility between the couple to produce healthy progeny after marriage. Please consider that in ancient Vedic times, the main purpose of marriage was to produce healthy children and to continue the family lineage. In this age of modern science and technology, where the most advanced medical facilities are available, this score should be considered in light of this factor. In addition, in those relationships where birth of children is not required, this score can be completely discarded from the overall points and the points scored. For purposes of this test, life forces are categorized as follows: Adya or Beginning Madhya or Middle Antya or End Manglik Dosh Matching - If the boy or girl is having Mars in 1st, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th house then it is termed as Manglik Dosha. If one of the two is Manglik and the other is not then in that situation the same placement of Mars in non Manglik chart from the Moon can cancel Manglik Dosha, otherwise the non Manglik chart should have Saturn, Rahu or Mars in that house where the Mars of Manglik person is placed. If both the conditions are missing in non Manglik chart then it should have the placement of any malefic planet in 3rd, 6th or 11th house. Conclusion Horoscope matching covering Ashtakoot Guna Matching and Manglik dosha matching is not enough for happy married life if the horoscopes do not contain the promise of happy married life. Further, D9 (Navamsa) is the divisional chart of marriage so its strength should also be checked. If the majority of planets in this chart are debilitated or weak then they destroy the stability of married life. In addition if the marital happiness is promised in one chart but denied in other's chart then this also is not enough for a good match. So if promise of happy married life is indicated in both charts it can result in happy married life otherwise a good matching can also fail to assure marital bliss. The indications of multiple relationships in a chart also ruin marital bliss. The human tendency is to seek maximum compatibility but fidelity comes naturally not out of compulsion. To conclude we shall say that following 5 factors should be studied to know about the stability in one’s married life. • Promise of marital happiness • Strength of Navansha chart • Ashtakoota matching • Manglik Dosa matching • Element matching
