Nadi Dosh is undoubtedly the most feared Dosh among all defects which are formed during the process of Gun Milan, practiced for the purpose of horoscope matching for two individuals. Many types of bad results are associated with Nadi Dosh and this Dosh is said to cause even the death of one or both the partners who marry each other despite the presence of Nadi Dosh in match making. Due to so much fear attached to this Dosh, many people do not proceed with marriages, if Nadi Dosh is formed during horoscope matching through Gun Milan. Let’s look at the formation of Nadi Dosh, malefic results associated with Nadi Dosh and the actual relevance of this defect in the system of Gun Milan as well as in the process of horoscope matching. We will also discuss whether Nadi Dosh is actually capable of causing the kind of serious problems associated with it or the problems associated with Nadi Dosh have simply been exaggerated.

To start with the topic, let’s first understand as to what Nadi Dosh is and how this Dosh is formed during the process of match making. In order to do so, let’s first understand as to what a Nadi is according to according to Vedic astrology. As we know that all nine planets called navagraha in Vedic astrology are always on their journey from one sign to the other and from one nakshatra to the other. Accordingly Moon also travels from Ashwini nakshatra to Revati nakshatra and from Aries to Pisces in a cyclic movement; and at any given point of time and place; Moon is present in a particular nakshatra and in a particular sign. For example, let’s assume that Moon is present in Rohini nakshatra and in Taurus sign at this time and place. Accordingly, all the people born under this time and place will have the Moon placed in Rohini nakshatra and in Taurus sign in their birth horoscopes. Hence the birth nakshatra of these natives is Rohini and the birth sign or Raashi of these natives is Taurus.

Moving ahead, Vedic astrology assigns one out of 3 Nadis to each one of the 27 nakshatras which are considered important in Vedic astrology. These Nadis are called Adi Nadi, Madhya Nadi and Antya Nadi according to Vedic astrology. Adi means beginning, Madhya means middle and Antya means end. All 27 nakshatras are equally divided among these 3 Nadis, which means that every Nadi claims 9 nakshatras. Hence 9 nakshatras are associated with Adi Nadi, 9 nakshatras are associated with Madhya Nadi and 9 nakshatras are associated with Antya Nadi. At the time of birth of each native, the placement of Moon in his birth chart is observed and depending on the nakshatra in which Moon is placed, a Nadi is assigned to the person. Following is the distribution of Nadis according to Vedic astrology as decided by the presence of Moon in specific nakshatras in the birth charts of different natives:

If Moon is placed in any of these 9 nakshatras named Ashwini, Ardra, Punarvasu, UttaraPhalguni, Hasta, Jyeshtha, Moola, Shatabhisha or Poorvabhadrapada in a horoscope, the native is said to have Adi Nadi.

If Moon is placed in any of these 9 nakshatras named Bharani, Mrigasira, Pushya, PoorvaPhalguni, Chitra, Anuradha, Poorvashada, Dhanishtha or UttaraBhadrapada in a horoscope, the native is said to have Madhya Nadi.

 

If Moon is placed in any of these nakshatras named Krittika, Rohini, Ashlesha, Magha, Swati, Vishakha, Uttarashada, Shravana or Revati in a horoscope, the native is said to have Antya Nadi.

As we know what Nadi is and how the Nadi of a person is decided from his horoscope, let’s look at the formation of Nadi Dosh which is formed during horoscope matching through the process of Gun Milan. In the process of Gun Milan, the Nadi of both girl and boy is found out from their horoscopes according to the classifications given above. It is then checked as to whether both boy and girl have same Nadi or different Nadis. If both boy and girl have different Nadis then it is considered good for marriage but if boy and girl have same Nadi, Nadi Dosh is said to be formed in horoscope matching, which is said to cause serious types of problems in marriage.

For example, if the boy has Adi Nadi and the girl has Madhya Nadi or Antya Nadi, the Nadi match is said to be fine and 8 out of 8 points or Gunas are assigned for Nadi match. However, if the girl also has Adi Nadi like the boy, Nadi Dosh is said to be formed and 0 out of 8 points or Gunas is assigned for this Nadi match. It should be noted that the system of Gun Milan is based on matching 8 aspects or koots from both the horoscopes, which are called Varna, Vashya, Tara, Yoni, Graha, Gan, Bhakut and Nadi. All these 8 koots are assigned 1 to 8 points or Gunas respectively, which makes a total of 36 and a final score is calculated for horoscope matching for two natives, based on how good or bad is the matching of each one of these 8 koots.

Since Nadi lies at the top of this pyramid of Gunas and it stands 8th from the bottom, 8 Gunas are assigned to Nadi Match. It should be noted that unlike many other koots where any percentage of Gunas may be assigned according to matching of these koots on different levels, Nadi and Bhakoot koot are either 0% or 100%. It means that for the koot of Bhakoot which carries 7 points, either 7 will be assigned or 0 will be assigned. Similarly in case of the koot of Nadi, either 8 points will be assigned or 0 point will be assigned and there is nothing in between like 5 points or 6 points. Hence the presence of same Nadi for both the natives during the process of horoscope matching deducts 8 points straight away; and Nadi Dosh is said to be formed in such match making.

Since Nadi carries 8 points out of a total of 36 points, the formation of Nadi Dosh is considered as a big disadvantage for the overall score as it deducts almost 25% of the total points straight away. Nadi Dosh is associated with various types of problems depending on which kind of Nadi Dosh is formed during horoscope matching.

According to Vedic astrology, 3 types of Nadi Doshas can be formed during horoscope matching, depending on the kind of Nadi associated with bride and groom. For example, if both boy and girl have Adi Nadi according to their horoscopes, Adi Nadi Dosh is said to be formed in horoscope matching, which is said to cause disturbances in marriage, a long separation or a divorce. If both boy and girl have Madhya Nadi according to their horoscopes, Madhya Nadi Dosh is said to be formed in horoscope matching, which is said to cause divorce or death of one of the partners. If both boy and girl have Antya Nadi according to their horoscopes, Antya Nadi Dosh is said to be formed in horoscope matching and this type of Nadi Dosh is considered as the most troublesome among all three kinds of Nadi Doshas.

Antya Nadi Dosh is said to cause death of one or both the partners if the natives having this type of Nadi Dosh decide to marry each other. For this reason, the formation of Nadi Dosh in horoscope matching is considered very bad and many people do not proceed with marriage when Nadi Dosh is formed in horoscope matching, particularly if it is Antya Nadi Dosh. The system of Gun Milan also describes some conditions which serve as exceptions for Nadi Dosh, which means if any of these conditions is met during Gun Milan, Nadi Dosh is said to be cancelled or nullified and horoscope matching is said to be free from this defect. These conditions are mentioned below:

If both male and female are born in the same Nakshatra but the Charana or Pada of Nakshatra is different, Nadi Dosh is said to be nullified in horoscope matching, despite both of them having the same Nadi. It should be noted that each one of 27 nakshatras has 4 quarters called padas or charanas in Vedic astrology. Hence if both boy and girl have their Moon placed in the nakshatra of Ashwini, they both have Adi Nadi but Nadi Dosh is said to be cancelled if Moon is placed in different padas of Ashwini nakshatra in both these horoscopes. For example, if the boy has his Moon placed in the first pada of Ashwini nakshatra and the girl has her Moon placed in any one of the other three padas of Ashwini nakshatra, Nadi Dosh is said to be cancelled, though both of them have Adi Nadi. However, if Moon is placed in the same pada of Ashwini nakshatra in both these horoscopes, let’s say in first pada; Nadi Dosh is not cancelled.

If both Male and Female have same Moon Sign but the birth Nakshatras are different and both of them have same Nadi, Nadi Dosh is said to be nullified in horoscope matching. For example, if the boy has his Moon placed in Ardra Nakshatra and the girl has her Moon placed in any one of the first three padas of Punarvasu nakshatra, which fall in the sign of Gemini, this rule applies. In this case, both of them have Adi Nadi and both of them have Gemini as their Moon sign. Hence they have same Nadi and same Moon sign, but birth nakshatras are different. Hence Nadi Dosh is cancelled in this case. However, if the girl has her Moon placed in the fourth pada of Punarvasu nakshatra, which falls in the sign of Cancer, this rule doesn’t apply then, as both of them have different Moon signs now, with the boy having his Moon sign as Gemini and the girl having her Moon sign as Cancer.

If both Male and Female have same birth Nakshatra but the Moon Signs are different, Nadi Dosh is said to be nullified in horoscope matching despite both of them having the same Nadi. For example, if the boy has his Moon placed in any one of the first three padas of Punarvasu nakshatra and the girl has her Moon placed in the fourth pada of Punarvasu nakshatra, this rule applies. Both of them have their birth Nakshatra as Punarvasu and their Nadi as Adi Nadi. Moving ahead, the Moon sign of the boy is Gemini and that of the girl is Cancer. Hence Nadi Dosh is cancelled in this case. However, if Moon is placed in the first three padas of Punarvasu nakshatra in the horoscopes of both these natives, this rule doesn’t apply, as both of them will have Adi Nadi and the same Moon sign which is Gemini.

Knowing this much about Nadi Dosh, let’s now try to analyze Nadi Dosh with the help of scientific facts and statistics and let’s see if Nadi Dosh is actually capable of causing the kind of damage in horoscope matching, which is attributed to it. As we know that every person is supposed to have one out of three Nadis, this means that for a given person, Nadi Dosh on average will be formed during his horoscope matching with every third person. This is because every third person on average will have the same Nadi as he has. It means that he can’t marry one third people on average, merely because of Nadi Dosh.

For example, if a boy has Adi Nadi according to his horoscope, every third girl he considers for horoscope matching should also be having Adi Nadi as there are only three Nadis according to Vedic astrology; and the chances of someone belonging to a particular Nadi are one third, as all 27 nakshatras have been equally divided into 3 groups of Nadis, assigning 9 out of 27 nakshatras to each Nadi. Going by this theory, every third girl on average is prohibited for a boy and every third boy on average is prohibited for a girl, merely on the basis of Nadi Dosh as this defect will be formed in every third case of horoscope matching.

It should be noted that Nadi Dosh is only one of the defects formed during match making and there are many other defects like Manglik Dosh, Kaal Sarp Dosh, Pitra Dosh, Bhakut Dosh, Gan Dosh, Graha Maitri Dosh, Yoni Dosh and other defects, each of which is capable of causing serious problems in 40 to 50% of the marriages; according to the prevalent definitions of these defects. Taking everything into consideration, it can be easily said that almost all the marriages in the world should end up in divorces or other serious problems. This is not what we see in reality and hence the formation of Nadi Dosh in match making alone can’t cause serious problems in the marriages of the couples having this Dosh.

In my experience of horoscope matching which now goes over thousands of cases of match making, I have witnessed hundreds of successful marriages despite the presence of Nadi Dosh in match making. This happened due to fact that the overall horoscopes of these couples were giving very good indications about the marriages of these couples as the positive factors present in these horoscopes reduced the malefic effects of Nadi Dosh to great extent. Hence Nadi Dosh could not cause any significant damage in these marriages.

Hence it should be kept in mind that the formation of Nadi Dosh during horoscope matching can cause significant problems in the marriage of a couple under consideration, only if such Nadi Dosh is supported by some other malefic defects present in one or both the horoscopes. Nadi Dosh is not capable of causing serious damages in the marriage of a couple on its own, in most cases. It should also be noted that the presence of good yogas in one or both the horoscopes can reduce the bad effects of Nadi Dosh to great extents and accordingly, this defect may not cause any significant damage in such a marriage.

Therefore, the couples having Nadi Dosh during match making should not lose heart and they should get their horoscopes matched properly in order to know whether such Nadi Dosh is capable of causing significant damage or not. It should also be noted that the malefic effects of Nadi Dosh can be rectified with astrological remedies like Poojas, Yantras and donations in most cases, which gives us one more reason for not being afraid of Nadi Dosh.

Bhakoot Dosh is the second most feared Dosh which is formed during the process of match making through Gun Milan. Bhakoot is a koot or aspect which carries 7 points or Gunas according to the system of Gun Milan which is used by many astrologers practicing in Vedic astrology for the purpose of match making between two individuals. Bhakoot lies at 2nd position from the top and at 7th position from the bottom, and accordingly it carries 7 Gunas or points. Different number of Gunas or points are assigned for Bhakoot match; based on how the Bhakoots of boy and girl match with each other, according to the rules of Gun Milan.

First of all, let’s try and understand as to what this Bhakoot is according to Vedic astrology and what the role of Bhakoot is in the process of match making according to the system of Gun Milan. We know that all nine planets called navagraha in Vedic astrology are always on their journey from one sign to the other and from one nakshatra to the other. Accordingly, Moon also travels from Ashwini nakshatra to Revati nakshatra and from Aries to Pisces in a cyclic movement and at any given point of time and place; Moon is present in a particular nakshatra and in a particular sign. For example, let’s assume that Moon is present in Pushya nakshatra and Cancer sign at this time and place. Accordingly, all the people born during this time and place will have Moon placed in Pushya nakshatra and in Cancer sign in their birth horoscopes. Hence the birth nakshatra of these natives is Pushya and birth sign or Rashi of these natives is Cancer.

Moving ahead, let’s consider another horoscope in which Moon is placed in Moola nakshatra and in Sagittarius sign. Accordingly, Moola becomes the birth nakshatra of this native and Sagittarius becomes the Moon sign or Rashi of this native. Now the Moon signs or Rashis of both these natives are called their Bhakoots and the matching of these Bhakoots is done through the system of Gun Milan. According to the system of Gun Milan, if Moon signs or Bhakoots of girl and boy make a combination of 5-9, 6-8 or 2-12 with each other, Bhakoot Dosh is formed. The numbers mentioned in these combinations are calculated on the basis of the distance of one Moon sign or Bhakoot from the other Moon sign or Bhakoot.

Simplifying the above example, we know that the Moon sign or Bhakoot of one native say boy is Cancer and the Moon sign or Bhakoot of the other native, say girl is Sagittarius. Now, when we start counting Moon signs from the Moon sign or Bhakoot of the boy, which is Cancer, it is found that Sagittarius which is the Moon sign or Bhakoot of the girl is placed at a distance of 6 signs from Cancer. Similarly, when we count Moon signs from the Moon sign or Bhakoot of the girl, it is found that Cancer is situated at a distance of 8 signs from Sagittarius.

Hence the combination of 6-8 Bhakoot is obtained in this case, which leads to the formation of Bhakoot Dosh in match making. It should be noted that while making this calculation, the sign from which we start counting onwards is also taken into consideration. It means that Cancer will be counted as 1st, Leo as 2nd, Virgo as 3rd, Libra as 4th, Scorpio as 5th and Sagittarius will be counted as the 6th sign from Cancer. The same holds for making this calculation from Sagittarius to Cancer, which gives us the number 8.

Similarly, if the Moon sign of the girl is Gemini and the Moon sign or Bhakoot of the boy is Taurus, a combination of 2-12 is formed between the Moon signs, and Bhakoot Dosh is again formed in match making. Likewise, Bhakoot Dosh of 5-9 is formed in match making if Moon sign or Bhakoot of boy is Taurus and Moon sign or Bhakoot of girl is Virgo, which make a relation of 5-9 which again forms Bhakoot Dosh. As we now know what Bhakoot Dosh is, let’s look at some of the malefic results associated with each type of Bhakoot Dosh.

It is said that Bhakoot Dosh of 2-12 formed in match making can make the couple suffer from extreme poverty and the financial equation of such couple is not likely to improve throughout their lives. Bhakoot Dosh of 5-9 which is also called navam pancham Bhakoot Dosh in Vedic astrology is said to delay or deny the production or generation of children. It is believed by many astrologers that the presence of 5-9 Bhakoot Dosh is very bad for child birth. Bhakoot Dosh of 6-8 which is also called shadashtak Bhakoot Dosh in Vedic astrology is said to cause divorce or the death of one or both the partners, if such boy and girl choose to marry despite the formation of this Dosh during match making. The system of Gun Milan also lays some rules of exception, which means that Bhakoot Dosh is said to be cancelled or nullified in match making, if any one of the following conditions is met:

If the Lord of Moon Signs or Rashis of boy and girl is the same in both the horoscopes, Bhakoot Dosh is said to be nullified. For example 6-8 Bhakoot Dosh is said to be nullified in case of Aries-Scorpio and Taurus-Libra combination; and 12-2 Bhakoot Dosh is said to be nullified in case of Capricorn-Aquarius combination.

If the Lords of Moon Signs of boy and girl are friendly towards each other, Bhakoot Dosh is said to be nullified. For example, a combination of Pisces-Aries and Aries-Sagittarius is said to cancel this defect as both Jupiter and Mars are friendly towards each other. However it should be noted that for this condition to meet, both the planets should be friendly towards each other. For example, 2-12 Bhakoot Dosh will not be cancelled according to this rule, in case one of the natives has Moon sign as Leo and the other one has Moon sign as Virgo. This is due to the fact that Mercury is friendly towards Sun but Sun is neutral towards Mercury. Hence this defect will not be cancelled as only one of the two Moon sign lords is friendly towards the other whereas the second one is neutral towards the first one.

Moving ahead, the system of Gun Milan assigns 7 Gunas or points to Bhakoot and the formation of Bhakoot Dosh in match making means that the couple has scored 0 out of 7 Gunas for Bhakoot match. It should be noted that the system of Gun Milan is based on matching 8 aspects or koots from both the horoscopes, which are assigned 1 to 8 points or Gunas respectively. Since Bhakoot lies at second position from the top of this pyramid of Gunas, the formation of Bhakoot Dosh during the process of Gun Milan deducts 7 points straight away; resulting in a big negative impact on the overall matching score as well as in many other types of problems associated with this Dosh, depending on its kind.

Let’s now try to analyze Bhakoot Dosh with the help of scientific facts and statistics; and let’s see if Bhakoot Dosh is actually capable of doing the kind of damage which is associated with it. As we know there are only twelve zodiac signs according to Vedic astrology; accordingly there are only 12 Moon signs or Bhakoots for both boy and girl. It means that only 12 combinations can be formed between the Moon signs of boy and girl when their horoscopes are analyzed for match making through Gun Milan. For example, if the Moon sign or Bhakoot of Boy is Aries, only 12 combinations of Bhakoot can be formed with any girl, depending on the Bhakoot or Moon sign of the girl under consideration for match making.

These combinations can be named as 1-1, 2-12, 3-11, 4-10, 5-9, 6-8, 7-7, 8-6, 9-5, 10-4, 11-3 and 12-2. We can clearly see from this data that 6 out of these 12 possible combinations of Bhakoots or Moon signs form Bhakoot Dosh in match making according to the system of Gun Milan. Hence every second couple on average is likely to be afflicted by Bhakoot Dosh which means that about 50% cases of match making are having Bhakoot Dosh. Making some adjustments for the exceptions given for Bhakoot Dosh, the total percentage still comes closer to 40%, which means that every second or third girl on average is prohibited for a boy and every second or third boy is prohibited for a girl, merely on the basis of Bhakoot Dosh.

It should be noted that Bhakoot Dosh is only one of the defects formed during match making and there are many other defects like Manglik Dosh, Kaal Sarp Dosh, Pitra Dosh, Nadi Dosh, Graha Maitri Dosh, Gan Dosh, Yoni Dosh and other defects, each of which is capable of causing serious problems in 40 to 50% of the marriages; according to the prevalent definitions of these defects. Taking everything into consideration, it can be easily said that almost all the marriages in the world should end up in divorces or other serious problems. This is not what we see in reality and hence the formation of Bhakoot Dosh in match making alone can’t cause serious problems in the marriages of the couples having this Dosh.

In my experience of horoscope matching which now goes over thousands of cases of match making, I have witnessed hundreds of successful marriages despite the presence of Bhakoot Dosh in match making. This happened due to fact that the overall horoscopes of these couples were giving very good indications about the marriages of these couples as the positive factors present in these horoscopes reduced the malefic effects of Bhakoot Dosh to great extent. Hence Bhakoot Dosh could not cause any significant damage in these marriages.

Hence it should be kept in mind that the formation of Bhakoot Dosh during horoscope matching can cause significant problems in the marriage of a couple under consideration, only if such Bhakoot Dosh is supported by some other malefic defects present in one or both the horoscopes. Bhakoot Dosh is not capable of causing serious damages in the marriage of a couple on its own, in most cases. It should also be noted that the presence of good yogas in one or both the horoscopes can reduce the bad effects of Bhakoot Dosh to great extents and accordingly, this defect may not cause any significant damage in such a marriage.

Therefore the couples having Bhakoot Dosh during match making should not lose heart and they should get their horoscopes matched properly in order to know whether such Bhakoot Dosh is capable of causing any damage or not. It should also be noted that the malefic effects of Bhakoot Dosh can be rectified with astrological remedies like Poojas, Yantras and donations in most cases, which gives us one more reason for not being afraid of Bhakoot Dosh.

Gan is a koot or aspect which carries 6 points or Gunas according to the system of Gun Milan in Vedic astrology, which is used for the purpose of match making between two individuals. The koot of Gan lies at 6th position from the bottom and accordingly it carries 6 Gunas or points. Different numbers of Gunas or points are assigned to Gan match, based on how good or bad the Gan of boy and girl match with each other according to the rules of Gun Milan.

Before moving ahead, let’s first get to know as to what Gan is in a horoscope and what the importance of Gan is in the process of match making done through Gun Milan. We know that all nine planets called navagraha in Vedic astrology are always on their journey from one sign to the other and from one nakshatra to the other. Accordingly, Moon also travels from Ashwini nakshatra to Revati nakshatra and from Aries to Pisces in a cyclic movement and at any given point of time and place; Moon is present in a particular nakshatra and in a particular sign. For example, let’s assume that Moon is present in Pushya nakshatra and Cancer sign at this time and place. Accordingly, all the people born during this time and place will have Moon placed in Pushya nakshatra and in Cancer sign in their birth horoscopes. Hence the birth nakshatra of these natives is Pushya and birth sign or Rashi of these natives is Cancer.

Moving ahead, Vedic astrology assigns a Gan to each nakshatra out of a total of three Ganas which are named as Dev Gan, Manva Gan or Manushya Gan and Rakshas Gan. This classification of Ganas divides the 27 nakshatras in 3 equal groups, which means that Dev Gan is assigned to 9 out of 27 nakshatras, Manav Gan is assigned to 9 out of 27 nakshatras and Rakshas Gan is assigned to 9 out of 27 nakshatras. This way, every native has equal possibility of belonging to each one of these Ganas called Dev Gan, Manav Gan and Rakshas Gan based on the position of Moon in a particular nakshatra at the time of his birth. Following are the Ganas assigned to each nakshatra according to Vedic astrology:

The 9 nakshatras namely Ashwini, Mrigasira, Punarvasu, Pushya, Hasta, Swati, Anuradha, Shravana and Revati are assigned Dev Gan according to Vedic astrology.

The 9 nakshatras namely Bharani, Rohini, Ardra, PoorvaPhalguni, UttaraPhalguni, PoorvaShada, UttaraShada, PoorvaBhadrapada and UttaraBhadrapada are assigned Manav Gan or Manushya Gan according to Vedic astrology.

The 9 nakshatras namely Krittika, Ashlesha, Magha, Chitra, Vishakha, Jyeshtha, Moola, Dhanishtha and Shatabhisha are assigned Rakshas Gan according to Vedic astrology.

The compatibility of each Gan with other Gan has been decided and fixed according to Vedic astrology. The system of Gun Milan uses the following guidelines while predicting compatibility between nakshatra Ganas and assigning Gunas or points for Gan compatibility:

If the birth nakshatra of the boy under consideration for match making belongs to Dev Gan and the birth nakshatra of the girl under consideration for match making belongs to Dev Gan, 6 out of 6 points or Gunas are assigned for such Gan match according to the system of Gun Milan.

If the birth nakshatra of the boy under consideration for match making belongs to Manav or Manushya Gan and the birth nakshatra of the girl under consideration for match making belongs to Manva or Manushya Gan, 6 out of 6 points or Gunas are assigned for such Gan match according to the system of Gun Milan.

If the birth nakshatra of the boy under consideration for match making belongs to Rakshas Gan and the birth nakshatra of the girl under consideration for match making belongs to Rakshas Gan, 6 out of 6 points or Gunas are assigned for such Gan match according to the system of Gun Milan.

If the birth nakshatra of the boy under consideration for match making belongs to Manav or Manushya Gan and the birth nakshatra of the girl under consideration for match making belongs to Dev Gan, 6 out of 6 points or Gunas are assigned for such Gan match according to the system of Gun Milan.

If the birth nakshatra of the boy under consideration for match making belongs to Dev Gan and the birth nakshatra of the girl under consideration for match making belongs to Manav or Manushya Gan, 5 out of 6 points or Gunas are assigned for such Gan match according to the system of Gun Milan.

If the birth nakshatra of the boy under consideration for match making belongs to Dev Gan and the birth nakshatra of the girl under consideration for match making belongs to Rakshas Gan, 1 out of 6 points or Gunas are assigned for such Gan match according to the system of Gun Milan.

If the birth nakshatra of the boy under consideration for match making belongs to Rakshas Gan and the birth nakshatra of the girl under consideration for match making belongs to Dev Gan, 0 out of 6 points or Gunas are assigned for such Gan match according to the system of Gun Milan.

If the birth nakshatra of the boy under consideration for match making belongs to Rakshas Gan and the birth nakshatra of the girl under consideration for match making belongs to Manav or Manushya Gan, 0 out of 6 points or Gunas are assigned for such Gan match according to the system of Gun Milan.

If the birth nakshatra of the boy under consideration for match making belongs to Manav or Manushya Gan and the birth nakshatra of the girl under consideration for match making belongs to Rakshas Gan, 0 out of 6 points or Gunas are assigned for such Gan match according to the system of Gun Milan.

Here is the table for the convenience of readers:

                   Boy

                   Dev Gan Manav Gan Rakshas Gan

   Girl

 Dev Gan          6                  5                         0
 Manav Gan     6                  6                         0

 Rakshas Gan   1                 0                          6

In cases of match making where Gan match gives a score of 0 or 1 according to Gun Milan, Gan Dosh is said to be formed in match making, which is associated with very bad results like separation, divorces and other bad things in the marriage of the couple. The system of Gun Milan also lays a rule of exception for the formation of Gan Dosh during match making, which is as follows:

If the Moon Signs or Rashis of both boy and girl under consideration for match making are same, Gan Dosh is said to be nullified or cancelled in such cases. For example, if birth nakshatra of the boy is UttaraPhalguni and birth nakshatra of the girl is Chitra; and the Moon sign or Rashi of both boy and girl is Virgo, Gan Dosh is considered to be nullified in this case even though UttaraPhalguni nakshatra belongs to Manav Gan whereas Chitra nakshatra belongs to Rakshas Gan according to Vedic astrology.

It can be seen from the above mentioned data that there are only 9 combinations for Gan match based on the birth nakshatra of boy and girl; and 4 out of these 9 combinations form Gan Dosh in match making, according to Gun Milan system. Hence it can be said that about 45% cases of match making are having Gan Dosh on average, according to Gun Milan. Taking the exception also into account, this figure comes closer to 40% which means that about 40% cases of horoscope matching have Gan Dosh, according to Gun Milan. The formation of Gan Dosh is associated with divorces, broken marriages and many other bad things. Accordingly, 40% of the marriages should be suffering from the problems associated with Gan Dosh.

It means that every second or third girl on average is prohibited for a boy and every second or third boy is prohibited for a girl merely on the basis of Gan Dosh. It should be noted that Gan Dosh is only one of the defects formed during match making and there are many other defects like Manglik Dosh, Kaal Sarp Dosh, Pitra Dosh, Nadi Dosh, Bhakut Dosh, Graha Maitri Dosh, Yoni Dosh and other defects, each of which is capable of causing serious problems in 40 to 50% of the marriages; according to the prevalent definitions of these defects. Taking everything into consideration, it can be easily said that almost all the marriages in the world should end up in divorces or other serious problems. This is not what we see in reality and hence the formation of Gan Dosh in match making alone can’t cause serious problems in the marriages of the couples having this Dosh.

In my experience of horoscope matching which now goes over thousands of cases of match making, I have witnessed hundreds of successful marriages despite the presence of Gan Dosh in match making. This happened due to fact that the overall horoscopes of these couples were giving very good indications about the marriages of these couples as the positive factors present in these horoscopes reduced the malefic effects of Gan Dosh to great extent. Hence Gan Dosh could not cause any significant damage in these marriages.

Hence it should be kept in mind that the formation of Gan Dosh during horoscope matching can cause significant problems in the marriage of a couple under consideration, only if such Gan Dosh is supported by some other malefic defects present in one or both the horoscopes. Gan Dosh is not capable of causing serious damages in the marriage of a couple on its own, in most cases. It should also be noted that the presence of good yogas in one or both the horoscopes can reduce the bad effects of Gan Dosh to great extents and accordingly, this defect may not cause any significant damage in such a marriage.

Therefore the couples having Gan Dosh during match making should not lose heart and they should get their horoscopes matched properly in order to know whether such Gan Dosh is capable of causing any damage or not. It should also be noted that the malefic effects of Gan Dosh can be rectified with astrological remedies like Poojas, Yantras and donations in most cases, which gives us one more reason for not being afraid of Gan Dosh.

Graha Maitri is a koot or aspect which carries 5 points or Gunas according to the system of Gun Milan which is used by many astrologers practicing in Vedic astrology for the purpose of match making between two individuals. Graha Maitri lies at 5th position from the bottom and accordingly it carries 5 Gunas or points. Different number of Gunas or points are assigned for Graha Maitri match; based on how the lords of the Moon signs of boy and girl match with each other, according to the rules of Gun Milan.

First of all, let’s try and understand as to what this Graha Maitri is according to Vedic astrology and what the role of Graha Maitri is in the process of match making according to the system of Gun Milan. We know that all nine planets called navagraha in Vedic astrology are always on their journey from one sign to the other and from one nakshatra to the other. Accordingly, Moon also travels from Ashwini nakshatra to Revati nakshatra and from Aries to Pisces in a cyclic movement and at any given point of time and place; Moon is present in a particular nakshatra and in a particular sign. For example, let’s assume that Moon is present in Pushya nakshatra and Cancer sign at this time and place. Accordingly, all the people born during this time and place will have Moon placed in Pushya nakshatra and in Cancer sign in their birth horoscopes. Hence the birth nakshatra of these natives is Pushya and birth sign or Rashi of these natives is Cancer.

Moving ahead, there are 12 zodiac signs which are considered important according to Vedic astrology for making calculations from horoscopes and for making calculations like match making. Each one of these 12 signs is owned by a planet among navagraha, which is called the ruling planet of that sign or the lord of that sign. For the convenience of readers, following is the planetary lordship of signs according to Vedic astrology:

Aries is ruled by Mars according to Vedic astrology.

Taurus is ruled by Venus according to Vedic astrology.

Gemini is ruled by Mercury according to Vedic astrology.

Cancer is ruled by Moon according to Vedic astrology.

Leo is ruled by Sun according to Vedic astrology.

Virgo is ruled by Mercury according to Vedic astrology.

Libra is ruled by Venus according to Vedic astrology.

Scorpio is ruled by Mars according to Vedic astrology.

Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter according to Vedic astrology.

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn according to Vedic astrology.

Aquarius is ruled by Saturn according to Vedic astrology.

Pisces is ruled by Jupiter according to Vedic astrology.

Moving on, Vedic astrology also assigns a relation between all the planets among navagraha which tells us which Graha is friendly towards which Graha, neutral towards which Graha and enemy towards which Graha. The points or Gunas for Graha Maitri are assigned according to this relation between the lords of Rashis or Moon signs, as calculated from the horoscopes of boy and girl under consideration for match making. Depending on the relation between Moon sign lords of boy and girl under consideration for match making, the system of Gun Milan assigns following points or Gunas for Graha Maitri Match:

If the planetary lord of Moon sign or Rashi of the boy is same as the planetary lord of Moon sign or Rashi of the girl under consideration for match making, the system of Gun Milan assigns 5 out of 5 points for such case of Graha Maitri match. For example, if the planetary lord of Moon signs or Rashis of both boy and girl is Mars, Graha Maitri is given 5 out of 5 points or Gunas.

If the planetary lord of Moon sign or Rashi of the boy and the planetary lord of Moon sign or Rashi of the girl under consideration for match making are friendly with each other, the system of Gun Milan assigns 5 out of 5 points for such case of Graha Maitri match.

If the planetary lord of Moon sign or Rashi of the boy and the planetary lord of Moon sign or Rashi of the girl under consideration for match making are friendly-neutral with each other, the system of Gun Milan assigns 4 out of 5 points for such case of Graha Maitri match. This classification of Graha Maitri means that one planetary lord is friendly towards the second whereas the second planetary lord is neutral towards the first one.

If the planetary lord of Moon sign or Rashi of the boy and the planetary lord of Moon sign or Rashi of the girl under consideration for match making are neutral-neutral with each other, the system of Gun Milan assigns 3 out of 5 points for such case of Graha Maitri match. This classification of Graha Maitri means that one planetary lord is neutral towards the second and the second planetary lord is neutral towards the first one.

If the planetary lord of Moon sign or Rashi of the boy and the planetary lord of Moon sign or Rashi of the girl under consideration for match making are friend-enemy with each other, the system of Gun Milan assigns 1 out of 5 points for Graha Maitri for such case of Graha Maitri match. This classification of Graha Maitri means that one planetary lord is friendly towards the second and the second planetary lord is enemy towards the first one.

If the planetary lord of Moon sign or Rashi of the boy and the planetary lord of Moon sign or Rashi of the girl under consideration for match making are neutral-enemy with each other, the system of Gun Milan assigns 0.5 out of 5 points for such case of Graha Maitri match. This classification of Graha Maitri means that one planetary lord is neutral towards the second and the second planetary lord is enemy towards the first one.

If the planetary lord of Moon sign or Rashi of the boy and the planetary lord of Moon sign or Rashi of the girl under consideration for match making are enemy towards each other, the system of Gun Milan assigns 0 out of 5 points for Graha Maitri for such case of Graha Maitri match.

For the convenience of the readers, here is the points table for Graha Maitri Match.

Moon Sign Lord of Boy
Moon

Sign

Lord of

Girl

Sun Moon Mars Mer Jup Ven Sat
Sun 5 5 5 4 5 0 0
Moon 5 5 4 1 4 0.5 0.5
Mars 5 4 5 0.5 5 3 0.5
Mercury 4 1 0.5 5 0.5 5 4
Jupiter 5 4 5 0.5 5 0.5 3
Venus 0 0.5 3 5 0.5 5 5
Saturn 0 0.5 0.5 4 3 5 5

 

For example, if the Moon sign of the boy is Leo and the Moon sign of the girl is Cancer; 5 out of 5 points are assigned for such Graha Maitri Match, as Sun and Moon are friendly towards each other. Similarly, if the Moon sign of the boy is Leo and the Moon sign of the girl is Gemini; 4 out of 5 points are assigned for such Graha Maitri Match, as Sun is neutral towards Mercury and Mercury is friendly towards Sun. However, if the Moon sign of the boy is Leo and the Moon sign of the girl is Aquarius; 0 out of 5 points is assigned for such Graha Maitri Match, as Sun is enemy towards Saturn and Saturn is enemy towards Sun.

In cases of match making where Graha Maitri match gives a score of 0, 0.5 or 1 according to Gun Milan, Graha Maitri Dosh is said to be formed in the horoscope which is associated with very bad results like mental incompatibility between husband and wife, which can lead to serious arguments and divorces in some cases. It can be seen from the above mentioned data that there are only 49 combinations for Graha Maitri match based on the birth Rashi of boy and girl; and 18 out of these 49 combinations form Graha Maitri Dosh in match making according to Gun Milan system.

Hence it can be said that about 35% cases of match making are having Graha Maitri Dosh on average according to Gun Milan. Therefore, 35% of the marriages should be suffering from the problems associated with Graha Maitri Dosh, which means that every third girl on average is prohibited for a boy and every third boy is prohibited for a girl merely on the basis of Graha Maitri Dosh.

It should be noted that Graha Maitri Dosh is only one of the defects formed during match making and there are many other defects like Manglik Dosh, Kaal Sarp Dosh, Pitra Dosh, Nadi Dosh, Bhakut Dosh, Gan Dosh, Yoni Dosh and other defects, each of which is capable of causing serious problems in 40 to 50% of the marriages; according to the prevalent definitions of these defects. Taking everything into consideration, it can be easily said that almost all the marriages in the world should end up in divorces or other serious problems. This is not what we see in reality and hence the formation of Graha Maitri Dosh in match making alone can’t cause serious problems in the marriages of the couples having this Dosh.

In my experience of horoscope matching which now goes over thousands of cases of match making, I have witnessed hundreds of successful marriages despite the presence of Graha Maitri Dosh in match making. This happened due to fact that the overall horoscopes of these couples were giving very good indications about the marriages of these couples as the positive factors present in these horoscopes reduced the malefic effects of Graha Maitri Dosh to great extent. Hence Graha Maitri Dosh could not cause any significant damage in these marriages.

Hence it should be kept in mind that the formation of Graha Maitri Dosh during horoscope matching can cause significant problems in the marriage of a couple under consideration, only if such Graha Maitri Dosh is supported by some other malefic defects present in one or both the horoscopes. Graha Maitri Dosh is not capable of causing serious damages in the marriage of a couple on its own, in most cases. It should also be noted that the presence of good yogas in one or both the horoscopes can reduce the bad effects of Graha Maitri Dosh to great extents and accordingly, this defect may not cause any significant damage in such a marriage.

Therefore the couples having Graha Maitri Dosh during match making should not lose heart and they should get their horoscopes matched properly in order to know whether such Graha Maitri Dosh is capable of causing any damage or not. It should also be noted that the malefic effects of Graha Maitri Dosh can be rectified with astrological remedies like Poojas, Yantras and donations in most cases, which gives us one more reason for not being afraid of Graha Maitri Dosh.

Yoni is a koot or aspect which carries 4 points or Gunas according to the system of Gun Milan which is used by many astrologers practicing in Vedic astrology, for the purpose of match making between two individuals. Yoni lies at 4th position from the bottom and accordingly it carries 4 Gunas or points. During the process of match making for two natives, different number of Gunas or points are assigned for Yoni match; based on how the Yoni of boy and girl match with each other according to the rules of Gun Milan.

Before moving ahead, let’s first get to know as to what Yoni is in a horoscope and what the importance of Yoni is in the process of match making done through Gun Milan. We know that all nine planets called navagraha in Vedic astrology are always on their journey from one sign to the other and from one nakshatra to the other. Accordingly, Moon also travels from Ashwini nakshatra to Revati nakshatra and from Aries to Pisces in a cyclic movement and at any given point of time and place; Moon is present in a particular nakshatra and in a particular sign. For example, let’s assume that Moon is present in Rohini nakshatra and Taurus sign at this time and place.

Moving on, Vedic astrology associates every nakshatra with an animal which is called the Yoni of that nakshatra. For example, the 1st nakshatra Ashwini is associated with Ashwa or horse according to Vedic astrology and hence Ashwini nakshatra is said to belong to Ashwa Yoni. Similarly, an animal is assigned to each one of the 27 nakshatras and accordingly the Yoni of every nakshatra is decided based on these animals.

The behavior of each of these animals towards each other has been decided by Vedic astrology and accordingly such behaviors between various pairs of these animals have been divided into categories like same, friendly, neutral, enemy and sworn enemy. Based on these categories, the system of Gun Milan decides as to how good or bad the Yoni match is between two nakshatras or between two individuals under consideration for match making. The system of Gun Milan assigns Gunas for Yoni match on the basis of following rules:

If the birth nakshatra animal of boy is same as the birth nakshatra animal of girl under consideration for match making, 4 out of 4 Gunas or points are assigned for Yoni match according to Gun Milan.

If the birth nakshatra animal of boy and the birth nakshatra animal of girl under consideration for match making are friendly towards each other, 3 out of 4 Gunas or points are assigned for Yoni match according to Gun Milan.

If the birth nakshatra animal of boy and the birth nakshatra animal of girl under consideration for match making are neutral towards each other, 2 out of 4 Gunas or points are assigned for Yoni match according to Gun Milan.

If the birth nakshatra animal of boy and the birth nakshatra animal of girl under consideration for match making are enemies towards each other, 1 out of 4 Gunas or points are assigned for Yoni match according to Gun Milan.

If the birth nakshatra animal of boy and the birth nakshatra animal of girl under consideration for match making are sworn enemies towards each other, 0 out of 4 Gunas or points are assigned for Yoni match according to Gun Milan.

For the convenience of readers, here is the point table for Yoni match:

Girl ↓ Boy

In cases of match making where Yoni match gives a score of 0 or 1 according to Gun Milan, Yoni Dosh is said to be formed in the match making, which is associated with bad results related to physical incompatibility which in extreme cases can lead to arguments, separations or divorces. It should be noted that among the 27 nakshatras, 26 nakshatras have been assigned 13 yonis with 1 yoni for every 2 nakshatras. For example, Ashwini and Shatabhisha belong to Ashwa Yoni whereas Bharani and Revati belong to Gaj Yoni. The remaining 27th nakshatra called Uttarashada having mongoose Yoni is the only nakshatra to have a Yoni, not exhibited by any other nakshatra.

It can be seen from the above mentioned data that there are only 5 combinations for Yoni match based on the birth nakshatra of boy and girl; and 2 out of these 5 combinations form Yoni Dosh in match making according to Gun Milan system. From the chart, it can be said that about 30% cases of match making are having Yoni Dosh on average, according to Gun Milan. It means that 30% of the marriages should be suffering from the problems associated with Yoni Dosh, which further means that every second or third girl on average is prohibited for a boy and every second or third boy is prohibited for a girl, merely on the basis of Yoni Dosh.

As we know that most people who don’t belong to India don’t go through this process of horoscope matching and Gun Milan, every second or third marriage of the world should be facing troubles and problems indicated by Yoni Dosh. It should also be noted that Yoni Dosh is only one of the defects formed during match making and there are many other defects like Manglik Dosh, Kaal Sarp Dosh, Pitra Dosh, Nadi Dosh, Bhakut Dosh, Graha Maitri Dosh, Gan Dosh and other defects, each of which is capable of causing much more serious problems in 40 to 50% of the marriages, according to the prevalent definitions of these defects. Taking everything into consideration, it can be said that almost all the marriages in the world should face serious problems and many of them should end up in divorces or deaths of partners. This is not happening in real practice and therefore a different approach should be taken towards the bad results indicated by defects like Yoni Dosh.

In my experience of horoscope matching which now goes over thousands of cases of match making, I have witnessed hundreds of successful marriages despite the presence of Yoni Dosh in match making. This happened due to fact that the overall horoscopes of these couples were giving very good indications about the marriages of these couples as the positive factors present in these horoscopes reduced the malefic effects of Yoni Dosh to great extent. Hence Yoni Dosh could not cause any significant damage in these marriages.

Hence it should be kept in mind that the formation of Yoni Dosh during horoscope matching can cause significant problems in the marriage of a couple under consideration, only if such Yoni Dosh is supported by some other malefic defects present in one or both the horoscopes. Yoni Dosh is not capable of causing serious damages in the marriage of a couple on its own, in most cases. It should also be noted that the presence of good yogas in one or both the horoscopes can reduce the bad effects of Yoni Dosh to great extents and accordingly, this defect may not cause any significant damage in such a marriage.

Therefore the couples having Yoni Dosh during match making should not lose heart and they should get their horoscopes matched properly in order to know whether such Yoni Dosh is capable of causing any damage or not. It should also be noted that the malefic effects of Yoni Dosh can be rectified with astrological remedies like Poojas, Yantras and donations in most cases, which gives us one more reason for not being afraid of Yoni Dosh.

Tara is a koot or aspect which carries 3 points or Gunas according to the system of Gun Milan which is used by many astrologers practicing in Vedic astrology for the purpose of match making between two natives. Tara lies at third position from the bottom and accordingly it carries 3 Gunas or points; and different number of Gunas or points are assigned for Tara matching, based on how the Tara of girl and boy match with each other according to the rules of Gun Milan.

Before moving ahead, let’s first get to know as to what a Tara is in a horoscope and what the importance of Tara is in the process of match making done through Gun Milan. We know that all nine planets called navagraha in Vedic astrology are always on their journey from one sign to the other and from one nakshatra to the other. Accordingly, Moon also travels from Ashwini nakshatra to Revati nakshatra and from Aries to Pisces in a cyclic movement and at any given point of time and place; Moon is present in a particular nakshatra and in a particular sign. For example, let’s assume that Moon is present in Rohini nakshatra and Taurus sign at this time and place. Accordingly, all the people born during this time and place will have Moon placed in Rohini nakshatra and in Taurus sign in their birth horoscopes. Hence the birth nakshatra of these natives is Rohini and the birth sign or Raashi as it is called in Vedic astrology, of these natives is Taurus.

Moving on, Vedic astrology assigns nine kinds of Taras to different nakshatras and hence all 27 nakshatras are divided into 9 groups of Taras containing 3 nakshatras each. Tara is calculated from the birth nakshatra of a native according to the following rules laid by Vedic astrology.

Birth nakshatra is taken as 1st nakshatra of the native and it is called Janma Tara.

2nd nakshatra from birth nakshatra is called Sampat Tara.

3rd nakshatra from birth nakshatra is called Vipat Tara.

4th nakshatra from birth nakshatra is called Kshem or Chhem Tara.

5th nakshatra from birth nakshatra is called Pratyari Tara.

6th nakshatra from birth nakshatra is called Sadhak Tara.

7th nakshatra from birth nakshatra is called Vadh Tara.

8th nakshatra form birth nakshatra is called Mitra Tara.

9th nakshatra from birth nakshatra is called Ati-Mitra Tara.

10th nakshatra from birth nakshatra is taken as 1st nakshatra, 11th nakshatra from birth nakshatra is taken as 2nd nakshatra and this process goes on like this until 27th nakshatra from birth nakshatra, which is taken as 9th nakshatra and it is called Ati-Mitra Tara. For example, if Moon is placed in Ashwini nakshatra in the birth horoscope of a native, then Ashwini nakshatra is this native’s birth nakshatra and Janma Tara; and rest of the nakshatras are called Sampat to Ati-Mitra Taras as per the above mentioned rule of Vedic astrology. Following is the table of Tara relation for a native having his birth nakshatra as Ashwini nakshatra.

Janma Sampat Vipat

Ashwini Bharani Krittika

Magha PoorvaPhalGuni UttaraPhalGuni

Moola PoorvaShada UttaraShada

Vadh Mitra Ati-Mitra

Punarvasu Pushya Ashlesha

Vishakha Anuradha Jyeshtha

PoorvaBhadrapada UttaraBhadrapada Revati

Similarly, Tara relation can be found for all other birth nakshatras, using this procedure. According to the rules of Vedic astrology, 3rd, 5th and 7th nakshatra from the birth nakshatra of a native are considered as malefic or inauspicious nakshatras for the native. The same rule is applied in the process of Gun Milan while doing match making. According to Gun Milan, the distance of Janma nakshatra of boy from girl and girl from boy is calculated and the resultant number is divided by 9 in both the cases. The remainder is considered as the number of Tara for both boy and girl.

Moving on, if Tara of boy is 3rd, 5th or 7th with respect to birth nakshatra of girl, it is considered as a malefic or inauspicious Tara and similarly, if Tara of girl is 3rd, 5th or 7th with respect to Janma nakshatra of boy, it is considered as a malefic or inauspicious Tara. This way, the Tara relation for both boy and girl is calculated and then they are compared with each other for the purpose of assigning Gunas to the combination. If Tara for both boy and girl is auspicious, 3 out of 3 Gunas are assigned for Tara match and as the auspiciousness of Taras decreases; the score or Guna assigned for Tara matching also reduces in number.

Whenever there is a match of Shubh or auspicious and Ashubh or inauspicious Taras, Tara Dosh is said to be formed in such match making. It should be noted that both Taras can’t be Ashubh or inauspicious at the same time as the net total of both Taras will always come out to be 9 or 0 and a combination of 3, 5 and 7 which are the inauspicious Taras can never make a 9. For example, if Tara for boy is 3, then Tara for girl is 6, which gives us one Shubh Tara and one Ashubh Tara. Accordingly, Tara Dosh is said to be formed in such match making. If a combination of 0-0, 1-8 or 8-1 is present in Tara match, 3 out of 3 points or Gunas are assigned for Tara match in such a case of horoscope matching.

Vedic astrology associates Tara with destiny and other important aspects of the native; and it is believed that the presence of Tara Dosh in horoscope matching can create serious problems for the couple under consideration for match making. These problems can start from delays and disturbances in many spheres of their lives and they can go up to divorce or death of one of the partners, as per the scriptures of Vedic astrology. This is why Tara Dosh is also considered as a strong dosh in Vedic astrology.

It can be seen from the above mentioned data that there are only 9 combinations for Tara match based on the birth nakshatra of boy and girl; and Taras assigned to these combinations of nakshatras are 0-0, 1-8, 2-7, 3-6, 4-5, 5-4, 6-3, 7-2 and 8-1. Moving ahead, 6 out of these 9 combinations form Tara Dosh in match making according to the rules of Gun Milan, because 6 out of these 9 combinations include a number 3, 5 or 7 which are considered as Ashubh or inauspicious numbers in this combination. Hence it can be calculated that about 66% cases of match making are having Tara Dosh on average; according to Gun Milan.

Accordingly, 66% of the marriages should be suffering from the problems associated with Tara Dosh, which means that every second girl on average is prohibited for a boy and every second boy is prohibited for a girl, merely on the basis of Tara Dosh. It should also be noted that Tara Dosh is only one of the defects formed during match making; and there are many other defects like Manglik Dosh, Kaal Sarp Yog, Pitra Dosh, Nadi Dosh, Bhakut Dosh, Graha Maitri Dosh, Gan Dosh, Yoni Dosh and other defects of this kind, which may come to the scene.

Each one of these defects is capable of causing much more serious problems in 35 to 50% marriages according to the prevalent definitions of these defects. Taking everything into consideration, it can be easily said that a high percentage of marriages across the world should face serious problems and many of them should end up in divorces or deaths of partners, as indicated by this system of Gun Milan. This is clearly not happening in real practice and therefore a different approach needs to be taken towards the bad results indicated by defects like Tara Dosh.

In my experience of horoscope matching which now goes over thousands of cases of match making, I have witnessed hundreds of successful marriages despite the presence of Tara Dosh in match making. This happened due to fact that the overall horoscopes of these couples were giving very good indications about the marriages of these couples as the positive factors present in these horoscopes reduced the malefic effects of Tara Dosh to great extent. Hence Tara Dosh could not cause any significant damage in these marriages.

Hence it should be kept in mind that the formation of Tara Dosh during horoscope matching can cause significant problems in the marriage of a couple under consideration, only if such Tara Dosh is supported by some other malefic defects present in one or both the horoscopes. Tara Dosh is not capable of causing serious damages in the marriage of a couple on its own, in most cases. It should also be noted that the presence of good yogas in one or both the horoscopes can reduce the bad effects of Tara Dosh to great extents and accordingly, this defect may not cause any significant damage in such a marriage.

Therefore the couples having Tara Dosh during match making should not lose heart and they should get their horoscopes matched properly in order to know whether such Tara Dosh is capable of causing any damage or not. It should also be noted that the malefic effects of Tara Dosh can be rectified with astrological remedies like Poojas, Yantras and donations in most cases, which gives us one more reason for not being afraid of Tara Dosh.

Varna and Vashya are the koots or aspects which carry 1 and 2 points or Gunas respectively; according to the system of Gun Milan which is used by many astrologers practicing in Vedic astrology for the purpose of match making between two natives. The system of Gun Milan is the most popular system in India when it comes to do a match making for the purpose of marriage and compatibility. This system of Gun Milan has been in use since the Vedic ages and even today it is considered as the best possible solution for match making. Many astrologers and many people still believe that Gun Milan is a complete process of match making and nothing else needs to be carried out for the purpose of match making.

To refresh the memories, let me mention here that the system of Gun Milan is based on matching 8 aspects or koots from both the horoscopes. These koots are called Varna, Vashya, Tara, Yoni, Graha Maitri, Gana, Bhakoot and Nadi; and each one of these 8 koots is assigned 1 to 8 points or Gunas respectively. This makes a total of 36 Gunas or points and a final compatibility score is calculated for a particular pair of two natives, based on how good or bad is the matching of each one of these 8 koots. Varna lies at bottom position of this pyramid of koots and accordingly it carries 1 Guna whereas Vashya lies at number 2 from the bottom and accordingly it carries 2 Gunas. Different number of Gunas are assigned to a pair of two natives undergoing the process of match making; based on how the Varna and Vashya of boy and girl match with each other according to the rules of Gun Milan.

Hence before moving ahead, let’s first get to know what Varna and Vashya are in a horoscope and what the importance of Varna and Vashya is, in the process of match making carried out through Gun Milan. We know that all nine planets called navagraha in Vedic astrology are always on their journey from one sign to the other and from one nakshatra to the other. Accordingly, Moon also travels from Ashwini nakshatra to Revati nakshatra and from Aries to Pisces in a cyclic movement and at any given point of time and place; Moon is present in a particular nakshatra and in a particular sign.

For example, let’s assume that Moon is present in Rohini nakshatra and Taurus sign at this time and place. Accordingly, all the people born during this time and place will have Moon placed in Rohini nakshatra and in Taurus sign in their birth horoscopes. Hence the birth nakshatra of these natives is Rohini and the birth sign or Raashi as it is called in Vedic astrology, of these natives is Taurus. Moving on and looking at the Varna first, all the 12 zodiac signs have been assigned different Varnas or castes according to Vedic astrology which are given as under:

The signs called Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are classified as Brahmin Varna according to Vedic astrology.

The signs called Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are classified as Kshatriya Varna according to Vedic astrology.

The signs called Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn are classified as Vaishya Varna according to Vedic astrology.

The signs called Gemini, Libra and Aquarius are classified as Shudra Varna according to Vedic astrology.

Brahmin Varna is considered as the most superior of all the Varnas followed by Kshatriya Varna, Vaishya Varna and Shudra Varna respectively. For the process of match making, the system of Gun Milan follows the rule that if the Varna of boy is superior or equal to the Varna of the girl under consideration for match making, 1 out of 1 point or Guna is assigned for Varna matching. However, if the Varna of boy is inferior to the Varna of girl, which means that Varna of girl is superior to Varna of boy, 0 out of 1 point or Guna is assigned for such Varna match and Varna Dosh is said to be formed in such a case of match making. The Moon signs or Rashis of both boy and girl under consideration for match making are taken into consideration for matching Varna.

The formation of Varna Dosh during the process of match making is said to disturb the married life of the couple and a couple suffering from Varna Dosh is said to be incompatible and unhappy with each other, according to the scriptures of Vedic astrology. The reason assigned to this explanation is the belief that in order for a marriage to be good and happy, the Varna of the boy should be superior to the Varna of the girl as a superior Varna husband will always be able to take care of his wife as well as control and guide his wife.

On the other hand, if the Varna of the girl is superior to that of the boy, he may not be able to control and guide his wife; and hence the couple may face problems in their marriage. Therefore a score of 0 out of 1 Guna is assigned in such cases. There are a total of 16 combinations which are possible for Varna match between a boy and a girl; and 6 out of these 16 combinations qualify for 0 point or Guna. Hence in these 6 cases, Varna Dosh is said to be formed in match making.

Moving on to Vashya, all the 12 zodiac signs have been assigned a Vashya according to Vedic astrology, where these Vashyas are called dwipada or two footed, quadruped or chatushpada, ant or keet, wild animal or Vanchar and watery animals or Jalchar. These Vashyas are again arranged in an order of superiority according to Vedic astrology like in case of Varna. In this way, the Vashya of a boy is the species assigned to the Moon sign or Rashi of the boy and the Vashya of a girl is the species assigned to the Moon sign or Rashi of the girl. This is how the Vashya of both boy and girl under consideration for match making is calculated.

The system of Gun Milan believes that the Vashya of boy should be superior to the Vashya of girl under consideration for match making in order for the couple to lead a happy and compatible married life. Hence 2 out of 2 Gunas or points are assigned for Vashya match if the Vashya of boy is superior to the Vashya of girl. On the other hand, if the Vashya of girl is superior to the Vashya of the boy, the Gunas assigned to such Vashya match start decreasing in the order in which the Vashya of the girl is superior to that of the boy. In some of these cases where Vashya of the girl is far superior to the Vashya of the boy, 0.5 or 0 out of 2 Gunas are assigned for such Vashya match and Vashya dosh is said to be formed in such a case of match making.

The reason for this classification is again the same as for Varna and Vedic astrology believes that the Vashya of the husband should be superior to the Vashya of the wife so that the husband may guide and control the wife. On the other hand, if the Vashya of the wife becomes very superior to the Vashya of the husband, such a wife can’t be controlled by her husband. This is considered bad and hence a score of 0 is assigned for this Vashya match and Vashya Dosh is formed in such match making.

There are a total of 25 combinations which are possible for Vashya match between a boy and a girl; and 6 out of these 25 combinations qualify for 0 or 0.5 point or Guna. Hence in these 6 cases, Vashya Dosh is said to be formed in match making.

Looking at the data obtained from the results of Varna Dosh, which prohibits 6 out of 16 possible combinations for Varna match, it can be seen that about 35% of the marriages are prohibited merely on the basis of Varna Dosh. Making the same calculations in case of Vashya match, we can find that 25% of the marriages are prohibited merely on the basis of Vashya dosh. Combining these defects, it can be said that about 47% cases of match making are having Varna Dosh or Vashya Dosh on average, according to the system of Gun Milan. Accordingly 47% of the marriages should be suffering from the problems associated with Varna Dosh and Vashya Dosh.

It means that every second girl on average is prohibited for a boy and every second boy on average is prohibited for a girl; merely on the basis of Varna Dosh or Vashya Dosh. It should also be noted that Varna Dosh or Vashya Dosh are only two of the defects formed during match making; and there are many other defects like Nadi Dosh, Bhakut Dosh, Graha Maitri Dosh, Gan Dosh, Yoni Dosh and other defects of this kind which may come to the scene.

Each one of these defects is capable of causing much more serious problems in 35 to 50% marriages according to the prevalent definitions of these defects. Taking everything into consideration, it can be easily said that almost all the marriages in the world should face serious problems and many of them should end up in divorces or deaths of partners, as indicated by this system of Gun Milan. This is clearly not happening in real practice and therefore a different approach needs to be taken towards the bad results indicated by defects like Varna Dosh and Vashya Dosh.

In my experience of horoscope matching which now goes over thousands of cases of match making, I have witnessed hundreds of successful marriages despite the presence of Varna Dosh or Vashya Dosh in match making. This happened due to fact that the overall horoscopes of these couples were giving very good indications about the marriages of these couples as the positive factors present in these horoscopes reduced the malefic effects of Varna Dosh or Vashya Dosh to great extent. Hence Varna Dosh or Vashya Dosh could not cause any significant damage in these marriages.

Hence it should be kept in mind that the formation of Varna Dosh or Vashya Dosh during horoscope matching can cause significant problems in the marriage of a couple under consideration, only if such Varna Dosh or Vashya Dosh is supported by some other malefic defects present in one or both the horoscopes. Varna Dosh or Vashya Dosh is not capable of causing serious damages in the marriage of a couple on its own, in most cases. It should also be noted that the presence of good yogas in one or both the horoscopes can reduce the bad effects of Varna Dosh and Vashya Dosh to great extents and accordingly, these defects may not cause any significant damage in such a marriage.

Therefore the couples having Varna Dosh or Vashya Dosh during match making should not lose heart and they should get their horoscopes matched properly in order to know whether such Varna Dosh or Vashya Dosh is capable of causing any damage or not. It should also be noted that the malefic effects of Varna Dosh and Vashya Dosh can be rectified with astrological remedies like Yantras, Mantras, donations and Poojas in most cases, which gives us another reason for not to be afraid of Varna Dosh and Vashya Dosh.

Let’s discuss some of the important aspects an astrologer should analyze before predicting a good match between two persons on the basis of Astrology. But first, let’s have a look at a couple of popular methods adopted for Match Making or Compatibility check in the western countries and India.

Starting with the West, Sun Signs are given a great importance in the west when it comes to match making or compatibility check. The concept of compatibility on the basis of Sun Signs has become so popular in the west that even common people are found talking about it and asking questions about it. Like I’m a Leo, Am I compatible with a Virgo? Are Capricorns a good match for Geminis or not? Males with which Sun Sign are the best and Males with which Sun Sign are the worst and likewise which Sun Sign females are the best and which one are the worst. So much talk about compatibility and only the placement of Sun is considered or sometimes the placement of Venus is also considered. And many people believing in this theory only depend on some set dates of every month to predict the Sun Sign of a person and do not actually bother to take a look at the horoscope and check whether the Sun is placed in the sign indicated by the dates or not. And this becomes more important when the Sun is leaving one Sign and entering another Sign. In this case the Sun Sign of a person predicted just by considering his date and month of birth may not be his actual Sun Sign i.e the sign in which the Sun is placed in his horoscope or natal chart.

 And coming back to the compatibility analysis made by looking at Sun Signs alone, this is a concept which uses a very limited scope of astrology which is otherwise a very vast science and has so much more to offer than just one sign. I mean how can you divide all the people of the world in 12 categories and then follow a very simple maths to calculate the compatibility. It simply doesn’t work this way. There are a great number of people in the world having different personalities and characters even with the same Sun Signs. So it does not make much sense to predict the nature of a person or compatibility of a person with the other person based on one sign alone. Each and every planet, sign and aspect of the horoscope should be checked  for their good or bad effects, the strength of the good and the bad Yogas formed in the horoscope and the time of impact of these Yogas should also be checked before predicting match making. I have witnessed many cases where the matches were made on the basis of Sun Signs alone and in spite of being fully compatible according to the theory of Sun Signs, they fell flat as the most important factors ruling Marriage and Compatibility in their horoscopes were not favorable for the couples and some bad Yogas like Manglik Dosh and Kaal Sarp Dosh were present in the horoscope of one of the partners or both the partners. So once again, I would emphasize on the importance of analyzing the complete horoscopes of both the parties involved and particularly check for Manglik Dosh and Kaal Sarp Dosh before predicting any matches or compatibility.

Moving on, let’s now have a look at the system adopted for match making by most of the astrologers in India which is the traditional system of Guna Milaan for Match Making. In this system the natal placement of the Moon is seen in both the Horoscopes and then points known as Gunas are assigned on the basis of matching of the following descriptions in the Horoscopes :

  • Varana
  • Vasya
  • Tara
  • Yoni
  • Graha Maitri
  • Gana
  • Bhakut
  • Nadi

The points or Gunas are assigned out of a maximum of 36 and a score below 18 is not considered good for Match Making whereas the Match is considered better and better as the Gunas increase in number. 36 out of 36 would be a complete match according to this system, and then the Gunas from 35 to 30 are considered very very good, 30-25 is very good to good and then 25-20 is considered acceptable. The system works this way and if the Gunas are a higher number, the Match is said to be a good Match and if the Gunas are a lower number, the Match is not considered a good Match.

But in actual practice this system alone is not sufficient for predicting a Match Making just like the system of Sun Signs. It can be and should be used as a supplementary system in addition to some other very important Aspects which are to be seen and analyzed from both the Horoscopes to predict the match accurately.  We shall now take a look at these aspects of Match Making which should be given their due importance if a happy Marital life is to be predicted.

 First of all, an Astrologer should check whether there are the signs of a happy Marital life in both the Horoscopes. For example if one of the Horoscopes is indicating a probable divorce or a second marriage or in the worst case if it is indicating a long disease or even death of the spouse due to the presence of a major defect or bad yoga like Manglik DoshPitra Dosh or Kaal Sarp Yog then in spite of a very high number of Gunas, the Match is not correct. Then longevity of both the partners in general, the financial stability and future of the earning partner or partners as seen from Horoscope, analysis of any major diseases to either of the partners if there are any, the ability of both the partners to produce a child and general compatibility of both the partners are some of the important aspects which are to be verified properly before predicting a Match Making. If these Aspects are ignored or the Astrologer does not know how to check them properly, the Match Making is not correctly predicted in my opinion.

 I have seen the Horoscopes of many married couples who were assigned a number greater than 25 Gunas when they did the Match Making, yet their married life is very upset or in some cases the divorces had already been filed when one of the affected parties approached me. If the matching of Gunas alone was sufficient, then why did all these things happen. This is because of the fact that the Horoscopes were not compatible with each other on the most important grounds or Aspects mentioned above and in many cases a strong Manglik Dosh or a strong Kaal Sarp Dosh was present in the horoscope. I will explain this concept further with the help of a of a couple of case studies.

 When the parents of a Male approached with the Horoscope of both their son and a girl whom their son was in love with and wanted to marry, it was told after the analysis of the Horoscopes that all other aspects of Match Making were good but the girl should be suffering from some serious problem in the region near her Uterus and due to this problem she may not be able to conceive a child and in future she may face some serious disease in the Uterus region. It was also told that this problem could be controlled or even cured with the help of some specific Gemstones as it was still in the early stages. When the parents of the boy inquired about this problem from some relative of the girl, they came to know that the girl was currently suffering from a serious irregularity of Periods and was experiencing pain and excessive bleeding. Now the girl is wearing the Gemstones and she has recovered a great deal from her previous condition and is getting better and better as the time is going by. And the couple is marrying in the very near future.

 Mentioning one more case of a male who is around 50 and has already married 3 times, with one wife getting divorced and the rest of the two dying with serious diseases due to the presence of a strong Kaal Sarp Yog in his horoscope. And all the three Matches were made by Guna Milaan alone. This male wanted to marry for the fourth time, and was told by me to wear some Gemstones and do some remedies to reduce the effect of Kaal Sarp Yog present in his horoscope or otherwise face the same consequences in the fourth marriage in spite of passing the Guna Milaan test. His would be wife was also told to wear a couple of Gemstones and do some astrological remedies to survive the marriage as this man’s Horoscope was indicating serious troubles in married life, divorce or even death of the spouse because of the presence of a strong Kaal Sarp Yog in his horoscope which was primarily affecting his marred life and due to which one of his wives got divorced (whom I consider lucky) and the other two died with serious diseases. 

To summarize it is advised that match making or compatibility should be predicted only after analyzing both the horoscopes completely, keeping the most important factors to be checked in mind. And each horoscope should be checked for Manglik Dosh, Pitra Dosh and Kaal Sarp Yog in particular.

Click here to go to Manglik Dosh Section

Manglik Dosh is one of the most feared concepts in Vedic astrology. Most people believing in Vedic astrology fear it and they are concerned whether Manglik Dosh is formed in their horoscopes or not. Manglik Dosh is associated with some of the worst types of results related to the marriages of the natives suffering from this defect and there are many beliefs as well as misconceptions associated with this defect.

Through this chapter, we will discuss the formation of Manglik Dosh in a horoscope, misconceptions related to this Dosh; and the actual effect of this defect in our marriages as well as in other spheres of our lives. In Vedic astrology, it is believed that if Mars is placed in any one of the houses numbered 1, 2, 4, 7, 8 or 12 in a horoscope, where the rising sign or the ascendant is taken as the first house, Manglik Dosh is formed in that horoscope. For example, if a native is born with Aries as his ascendant and Mars is placed in the eighth house of his horoscope in the sign of Scorpio, this native is said to have Manglik Dosh according to the definition of this defect.

The formation of Manglik Dosh in a horoscope is said to delay the marriage of the affected native and it is also said to create disturbances after his marriage. These disturbances may be of many types depending on the house of placement of Mars as well as depending on some other factors. In worst cases of Manglik Dosh, it is believed to break more than one marriage of the native under its impact or it is said to make him suffer from the loss of more than one wife through death. Whereas there is no doubt that Manglik Dosh of very good strength supported by other malefic planets in a horoscope can create all these negative effects, these results are not seen as frequently as they are told to be. Like all other good and bad yogas in Vedic astrology, Manglik Dosh is also a rare concept and it doesn’t form as frequently in a horoscope, as it is believed to be.

Looking at the definition of this Dosh, it can be seen that Manglik Dosh is formed in a horoscope by virtue of placement of Mars in 6 out of 12 houses of a horoscope. Since the chances of Mars being placed in any sign or any house of a horoscope are the same, it means that half the population of the world is suffering from Manglik Dosh, as half the people will have Mars placed in one of these six houses in their birth charts. Accordingly, these people should suffer from delay in their marriages, disturbances, divorces and even from the deaths of their partners.

It should be noted that Manglik Dosh is only one defect in Vedic astrology, which can affect the marriages of the natives under its impact in a negative way, and there are many other defects like Kaal Sarp Yog, Pitra Dosh, Nadi Dosh and Bhakut Dosh, which are also said to be capable of causing equally serious problems in the marriages of the natives suffering from them. Taking all these facts into account, it can be concluded that almost all the marriages in this world should be delayed, seriously disturbed, broken or end up in the deaths of one or both the partners. As this is not happening in reality, it means that the prevalent definition of Manglik Dosh is not valid or sufficient; and more conditions need to be met in order for this defect to be formed in a horoscope. These additional conditions should make this defect a logical defect and they should also make Manglik Dosh a rare to form defect; and not something that can be found in every second horoscope. We shall now discuss these conditions, as well as the real scope and quantum of damage caused by Manglik Dosh, when actually formed in a horoscope.

To start with, it should be noted that Mangal means Mars in English, Manglik means something that is related to or that is created by Mars; and Dosh means defect. Hence Manglik Dosh translates into a defect formed by Mars, in simple language. As it is easy to understand that a defect is a negative word, the logically necessary condition for any defect or Dosh to form in a horoscope should be that the planet involved in the formation of such defect should be malefic in that horoscope. Can you imagine a positive planet forming a defect? No, I can’t and neither should you.

Hence if Mars placed in any one of these six houses is working positively in a horoscope, the possibility of formation of Manglik Dosh is ruled out and in fact, such positive Mars may form many types of good yogas in such horoscope, including Manglik Yog. Therefore, the first additional and compulsory condition for Manglik Dosh to form in a horoscope is that Mars should be working negatively in that horoscope, apart from being placed in one of the specific six houses already mentioned. In case Mars placed in any one of these six houses is not negative in nature and it is positive, it can’t form Manglik Dosh in the horoscope as it can only form positive yogas in this case, like it can form Manglik Yog in that horoscope.

It is the time to introduce this term called Manglik Yog. If Mars is placed in any one of the houses 1, 2, 4, 7, 8 or 12 in a horoscope and it is positive in nature, Manglik Yog may form in the horoscope. The formation of Manglik Yog in a horoscope can bless the native under its impact with very good results related to marriage, profession, health and many other spheres of his life, depending on the house of placement of such positive Mars, its sign of placement, its strength, its interaction with other positive or negative planets in his horoscope; and depending on some other important factors. In simple words, Manglik Yog is quite the opposite of Manglik Dosh and though both of them can significantly impact the marriage of a native under their influence, the former can bless him with very good results whereas the latter can trouble him with serious problems related to his marriage.

Coming back to the formation of Manglik Dosh, the first additional condition for this Dosh to form in a horoscope is that Mars should work negatively in the horoscope under consideration. Moving on, even if Mars is placed in one of these six houses and it is working negatively in a horoscope, it doesn’t mean that it will necessarily form Manglik Dosh in such horoscope. This is the time to introduce the second additional condition for the formation of this Dosh and this condition is called level of activity of a planet.

The readers should come across this fact now, that all planets among navagraha possess three essential characteristics among many other ones. These three characteristics are their physical strength, their working nature and their level of activity in a horoscope. For example, the presence of Mars in the first house of a horoscope in the sign of Aries tells us that Mars is physically strong in that horoscope. This is because Mars is placed in its own sign and it is placed in the first house; and both these factors give it additional strength. Hence Mars is strong in this horoscope; and the first essential characteristic has been established.

Moving on, the entire horoscope is then analyzed carefully and it is observed whether such strong Mars is working positively or negatively in the horoscope under consideration. Vedic astrology lays many guidelines for deciding the working nature of a planet in a horoscope, and a good astrologer should use these guidelines to calculate the working nature of every planet in a horoscope. After making all these calculations, let’s assume that the working nature of Mars is negative in such horoscope. It means that Mars is strong and it is negative in the horoscope. Hence two essential characteristics have been established. Since malefic Mars is placed in the first house of this horoscope, it can now result in the formation of Manglik Dosh; if the third and the final condition called level of activity is met in this horoscope.

Just as a planet has physical strength and it has positive or negative nature like we humans do; it also possesses another essential quality called level of activity, once again like us. Level of activity is the characteristics of planets as well as of humans, that tells us how active or passive a planet or human is. For example, a person can be physically strong and he may be bad in nature. However, he may not be very active and in fact he may be passive or lazy. It means that though this person has the strength and capacity to cause harm to the others, he may not actually cause much harm to the others as he is lazy and he doesn’t believe in engaging in actions, whether they are positive or negative.

Similarly, if a planet is lazy or passive in a horoscope, it may not do much good or bad to the native as it is not willing to do much work. Hence such planet whether positive or negative, strong or weak is not worth much in a horoscope, just like a lazy person is not worth much. Here again, Vedic astrology lays guidelines to decide the level of activity of a planet in a horoscope and these guidelines should be used properly, to decide the level of activity of Mars in a horoscope under consideration for the analysis of Manglik Dosh. If during this calculation, it is found that the level of activity of Mars is 30% or more in the horoscope, Manglik Dosh is formed in the first house of this horoscope.

Just like humans, planets can have their level of activity ranging from 0 to 100 percent, though the figures closer to 0 or 100 are very hard to find in actual practice. Returning to the topic, if level of activity of such strong and negative Mars placed in the first house of this horoscope is more than 30%, Manglik Dosh is formed in the horoscope. As the percentage level of activity of Mars keeps increasing in this horoscope, the strength of such Manglik Dosh also keeps increasing, resulting in more and more damage to the native, in the areas it affects.

However, if Mars has a percentage level of activity less than 30, Manglik Dosh is not formed in the horoscope under consideration as Mars is not active enough in this horoscope to cause significant problems, though it may be strong and negative. Reaching to the conclusion for the formation of Manglik Dosh in a horoscope, three essential conditions should be met in a horoscope, in order for this defect to form in such horoscope. Looking at these conditions, Mars should be placed in any one of the houses numbered 1, 2, 4, 7, 8 or 12 in a horoscope, it should be negative in the horoscope and it should have a percentage level of activity more than 30. If all these conditions are met in a horoscope, only then Manglik Dosh is formed in such horoscope.

On the other hand, if any one of these three essential conditions is not met in a horoscope, Manglik Dosh is not formed in the horoscope. For example, if Mars is placed in the first house of a horoscope and it is negative, but it has a level of activity closer to 20%, Manglik Dosh is not formed in the horoscope. However, if the same Mars has a level of activity closer to 60%, Manglik Dosh is formed in the first house of this horoscope.

Knowing how Manglik Dosh forms in a horoscope certainly helps, but this is not the end of the discussion and there is much more to it. Even if Manglik Dosh is formed in a horoscope, there is much more to do, before reaching any conclusions about the type of damage as well as the quantum of damage it can afflict on the native. Vedic astrology is full of combinations and accordingly, it includes high probability for different types and different quantum of things happening to different natives, even though they may seem to be under the impact of a similar looking defect or a good Yog.

The next step is to assess the areas of the life of the native under consideration, which can be affected by such Manglik Dosh. It should be noted that though all six types of Manglik Doshas can cause problems related to the marriage of the natives affected by them, these problems may be different in nature as well as in quantum. In addition to causing problems in the marriages of the natives under their impact, different types of Manglik Doshas can also affect many other spheres of the lives of such natives, like their professions, health and lifespan. Hence the area of impact of Manglik Dosh should be calculated, after this defect is found present in a horoscope.

For example, if Manglik Dosh is formed due to the presence of Mars in the first house of a horoscope, the focus of the damage caused by it may be more on the profession and health of the native; and less on the marriage of the native. However, if Manglik Dosh is formed due to the presence of Mars in the seventh house of a horoscope, the focus of the damage caused by it may be more on the marriage of the native and less on his health, though it may still affect his profession in a significant manner.

After the areas of impact of Manglik Dosh have been assessed, the next step is to check for the quantum of damage caused by this defect. This factor is a very important factor and it can change the net results given by Manglik Dosh in a horoscope a lot; and hence it should be studied carefully. For example, if Manglik Dosh is formed in a horoscope due to the presence of malefic Mars in seventh house in the sign of Cancer, which is its sign of debilitation, it may not cause much damage, as Mars doesn’t have much strength. However, if Manglik Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Mars in the seventh house of a horoscope in the sign of Aries, Scorpio or Capricorn, such damage may be high in quantum as Mars is very strong in these signs.

Similarly, the level of activity of such Manglik Dosh should also be checked as this factor is also very important in deciding the strength of this defect in a horoscope. For example, if malefic Mars forms Manglik Dosh in the seventh house of a horoscope in the sign of Capricorn with a level of activity around 50 %, it may delay the marriage of the native till his age of 35 or it may break his first marriage, depending on the rest of the horoscope. However, if malefic Mars forms Manglik Dosh in the seventh house of a horoscope in the sign of Capricorn with a level of activity above 80%, it may deny the possibility of marriage to such native or it may break two or three of his marriages, depending on his overall horoscope. Hence the level of activity of Mars should also be checked properly before predicting the damage caused by Manglik Dosh in a horoscope.

There are many other factors like the running time, the interaction of Mars with other planets in a horoscope and the presence of other good or bad yogas in a horoscope, which affect the net results given by Manglik Dosh present in a horoscope. Hence all these factors should be studies carefully and only then the damages indicated by Manglik Dosh in a horoscope should be predicted.

For an average person who doesn’t understand much of this technical stuff; let me mention it in simple words. Let’s assume that 100 people are told to have Manglik Dosh in their horoscopes merely on the basis of presence of Mars in one of the six houses under consideration. Though all these 100 people may think they have Manglik Dosh, here is what is likely to happen in reality. About 50% of these people on average are likely to have Mars working positively in their horoscopes, which means they can’t suffer from this defect, as already explained. This leaves us with 50 people who have malefic Mars placed in one of the six houses in question.

Moving on, about 20 of these people on average are likely to have the level of activity of such malefic Mars in their horoscopes below 30%. Hence these 20 people don’t pass the third condition and so they can’t have Manglik Dosh. Of the remaining 30 people who pass all the conditions and who now have Manglik Dosh in their horoscopes, about 10 to 15 of them on average are likely to have the strength of this defect less than 35%. This may happen due to Mars not having much strength in their horoscopes due to being placed in the signs which may make it weak or due to some other reasons also, depending on their overall horoscopes.

For example, the effect of Manglik Dosh of about 50% strength, formed in seventh house of a horoscope in the sign of Sagittarius may be reduced to less than 20%, if benefic Jupiter is also placed in the seventh house of this horoscope in the sign of Sagittarius. Such strong positive Jupiter placed in its own sign will have an upper hand in this combination and it will reduce the damage indicated by malefic Mars, to a great extent. Similarly, there may be some other factors or combinations which may reduce the damage caused by Manglik Dosh to a significant extent. It should be noted that any defect or positive Yog formed in a horoscope may not show significant negative or positive results, if it doesn’t possess strength in excess of 35%.

Coming back to the main topic, this leaves us with 15 to 20 people, who may actually have Manglik Dosh of 35% or more strength in their horoscopes. These are the natives who are likely to suffer from the malefic influence of Manglik Dosh in various spheres of their lives, depending on many factors; some of which have already been mentioned. The quantum of problems suffered by these natives is once again dependant on the strength of such Manglik Dosh, its house of placement, its sign of placement and on the overall tone of the horoscope in question.

To conclude, it can be established that only 15 to 20% of the natives who are told to have Manglik Dosh in their horoscopes, actually have this defect in their horoscopes. It means that the rest 80 to 85% natives don’t have it and they are getting scared from this defect, for no valid reason. Hence don’t bother too much on account of the placement of Mars in houses numbered 1, 2, 4, 7, 8 or 12 of your horoscopes as such Mars is very likely not forming Manglik Dosh in these houses.

On the contrary, in about 15 to 20% of these horoscopes, such Mars may be positive and it may form Manglik Yog in these houses, which may bless the natives under its impact with very good results through their marriages. It should be noted that for Manglik Yog to form in a horoscope, all the conditions observed for the formation of Manglik Dosh need to meet with the only change that Mars should be positive in such horoscope. It means that malefic and active Mars in any one of these six houses will form Manglik Dosh whereas positive and active Mars in any one of these six houses will form Manglik Yog. Therefore, you have equal chances of having Manglik Dosh as well as Manglik Yog.

Coming to the end, even if Manglik Dosh is actually formed in a horoscope, Vedic astrology mentions many remedies which can reduce the damage indicated by it to great extents. Hence don’t bother much about the placement of Mars in one of these six houses in your horoscope and get your horoscope checked properly, as you may not have Manglik Dosh at all.

When it comes to horoscope matching for the purpose of marriage, the technique of Gun Milan given by Vedic Jyotish is so popular that most of people think that horoscope matching is just Gun Milan and nothing else. Hence these people get a gun Milan score from some astrologer or some website and based on this score, they decide the compatibility of horoscopes which are under consideration for horoscope matching. Over a period of many years, I have been telling most of my clients and many of my readers who are interested in horoscope matching, that the technique of gun Milan is a part of the process of horoscope matching and it is not the complete process in itself as this technique of gun Milan considers only some aspects of horoscope matching and it focuses on Moon alone among navagraha and rest of the planets are ignored in this process of gun Milan and therefore it is not complete in itself when it comes to horoscope matching as all the planets among navagraha are considered important in Vedic Jyotish and therefore due attention should be given to all navagraha while doing a horoscope matching for the purpose of marriage. In this article, we will discuss the limitations of Gun Milan technique and we will also discuss as to what steps and what aspects are important in the process of horoscope matching.

To start with the discussion, let’s first discuss some limitations of the process called gun Milan which is widely used in India for the purpose of horoscope matching and most of the people believing and practicing in Vedic Jyotish still believe that Gun Milan is the only important thing to do in order to do a thorough horoscope matching or match making. In this process of gun Milan, the placement of Moon is recorded in a particular sign, nakshatra and the part or pada of the nakshatra at the time of birth of bride and groom and then based on the position of Moon in both of these horoscopes, a score for gun Milan is finalized where the maximum score is 36 and minimum acceptable score for Gun Milan is taken as 18 which means that if gun Milan score is less than 18, then the horoscope matching is not considered good and as this score of gun Milan goes higher, horoscope matching is considered to be better and better. The final score obtained through gun Milan is also called gunas which in simple terms means that if 18 is the score assigned according to gun Milan then it is said that 18 gunas are matching. This process of gun Milan considers 8 koots or aspects called Varna, Vashya, Tara, Yoni, Graha, Gan, Bhakut and Nadi for the purpose of assigning scores or gunas and these 8 koots are assigned 1 to 8 gunas respectively which makes a total of 36. Hence the final score obtained through this process of gun Milan is considered as the decisive criteria for deciding the fate of horoscope matching.

It should however be noted that the above mentioned process of gun Milan considers the placement of Moon alone for the purpose of horoscope matching and rest of 8 planets among navagraha are all together ignored in this system of gun Milan which puts a big question mark on the credibility of gun Milan system because the lives and compatibility of two people cannot be and should not be decided merely on the basis of one planet, one sign and one nakshatra, and all the planets, signs, houses and nakshatras which are relevant in the process of horoscope matching should be considered properly before reaching any conclusion about the final outcome of horoscope matching. For example, the presence of a Kuja Dosha, Anant Sarpa Dosha, Kulik Sarpa Dosha, Takshak Sarpa Dosha or Karkotak Sarpa Dosha in any one of the horoscope can altogether change the results of such horoscope matching as the presence of any one of the above mentioned doshas can make the marriage fail miserably in spite of a very high score given by gun Milan. Similarly the presence of one or more than one beneficial yogas like Manglik Yog, Malavya yoga or any other such yoga can make the marriage sustain in spite of a low score given by gun Milan system. Therefore the overall matching obtained through matching all the important aspects from both the horoscopes should be done for predicting the result of horoscope matching. We will now discuss some of the steps which are important and which should be given due attention in order to reach a conclusion about horoscope matching.

In the first step of horoscope matching, the horoscope of the boy or groom alone should be analyzed properly and it should be found out as to what planetary combinations, signs, nakshatras, yogas or doshas are present in the horoscope which can affect the fate of marriage in a positive or a negative way and the list of all such positive and negative points should be made. For example, if the horoscope of groom is indicating a good financial and professional progress throughout the life, it is taken as a plus while on the other hand if the same horoscope is indicating problems related to the birth of children, it is taken as a negative. Following this pattern, all the good and bad points related to marriage should be observed and noted from this horoscope and then in the next step of horoscope matching the same process should be repeated for the bride or girl. For example, if the horoscope of bride is showing significant disturbance in married life or it is showing a probable divorce, it should be taken as a negative and it should be noted while on the other hand if the same horoscope is showing very good results regarding child birth and financial prosperity, these observations should be noted as plus points. In the third step of horoscope matching, both of these horoscopes should be studied together and common positive and negative points should be weighed with and against each other.

To simplify this step, if the horoscope of both the boy and the girl is showing good financial prosperity, it can be safely assumed that this marriage will be good from financial point of view and financial ups and downs are not going to affect this marriage in a negative way. Coming to some other points, if the horoscope of the groom is indicating problems related to child birth whereas the horoscope of the bride is indicating very good results related to child birth, the chances are likely that some problems will raise regarding the child birth but they will be finally overcome and the couple will be able to have children after some difficulties and delays. This is the step of horoscope matching where the gunas or results of gun Milan is also considered and compared to the final outcome of both the horoscopes and a conclusion is derived from this comparison. For example, if a Nadi Dosh is present in horoscope matching which is indicating the death of one or both of the partners, this should be checked with the other aspects of horoscopes before jumping to any conclusions. If both the horoscopes are indicating good lifespan and none of the horoscopes is indicating the death of the partner, then it can be safely assumed that the negative result indicated by Nadi Dosh is not likely to bring serious consequences and such a Nadi Dosh should be considered very mild in this case. On the other hand if one of the horoscopes is showing problems with lifespan and the other horoscope is showing a possible widowhood, then the negative result indicated by Nadi Dosh should be considered very carefully as both the horoscopes are complementing the results of Nadi Dosh in this case and hence one of the two partners can actually face life threatening problems.

Similarly if gun Milan is indicating the presence of a Bhakut Dosh in horoscope matching which is indicating financial problems and debts to the couple, this fact should be cross checked with the both the horoscopes. If both the horoscopes are indicating very good financial prosperity, then the results of such Bhakut Dosh will be reduced greatly whereas if both the horoscopes or one of the horoscopes is indicating serious financial problems, then the results of such a Bhakut Dosh are very likely to reflect in the marriage and hence they should be considered with great care. If the presence of Moon in some specific nakshatra in both the horoscopes is indicating that physical or mental compatibility is likely to be very low between the two partners but both the horoscopes are giving indications of a very good married life then this negative result given by gun Milan is again likely to be reduced to great extent whereas on the other hand if one or both the horoscopes are indicating specific kinds of problems in marriage and at the same time a mental incompatibility is shown through gun Milan, such a marriage may have to face serious problems on account of serious arguments between husband and wife on account of mental incompatibility. Similarly all the relevant spheres related to marriage and married life should be checked and compared thoroughly before deciding as to which problems are likely to come strongly in such a marriage. The same holds true in case of positive results indicated by Gun Milan compared to strong negative results indicated by one or both the horoscopes. For example, a gun Milan score of 32 or 34 which is also called 32 or 34 gunas matching will not be of much help in predicting a good marriage if one of the horoscopes is seriously afflicted by a strong Kuja Dosha or a strong Sarpa Dosha as any one of these defects can easily break a marriage even if the gun Milan is giving a score of 36 out of 36.

In the next step of horoscope matching, the timing of marriage should be decided from both the horoscopes. This is a very important yet often ignored aspect of horoscope matching and I have analyzed horoscopes where marriages have failed only because this aspect was ignored. For example, if there is a Kuja Dosha present in the horoscope of the groom which is indicating a probable divorce whereas the horoscope of bride is comparatively better for longevity of the marriage, then the timing of marriage can be the deciding factor in such a case. If the Kuja Dosha present in the horoscope of the groom is indicating very strong negative results in the coming 2 years and it is showing reduced strength in the following 8 to 10 years after these 2 years, then this marriage should be performed after 2 years as performing a marriage within these two years can very well break this marriage whereas the same marriage is likely to sustain when it is performed after 2 years as the strength of Kuja Dosha present in the horoscope of groom will reduce for the coming 8 to 10 years. This factor will further intensify if the running times from the horoscope of the bride are corresponding with the running times of groom’s horoscope which means that the girl’s horoscope is also indicating problems in the marriage for the next year or two. Considering a case quite contrary to this example, let’s assume the same horoscopes with the only difference that a Kuja Dosha present in the horoscope of the groom is showing reduced strength for the next 7-8 years and the horoscope of the bride is also indicating very good results related to married life for the next 4-5 years. In this case, it will be safe to perform the marriage at the earliest as the running times from both the horoscopes are not corresponding to the bad results of Kuja Dosha present in one horoscope and hence such a Kuja Dosha is not likely to break this marriage easily. It should be noted here that the presence of a Kuja Dosha in a horoscope is likely to break a marriage particularly in the first few years of marriage and if first 4-5 years of marriage pass without any significant problem, then the malefic effects of Kuja Dosha keep on reducing with passing time and hence such a Kuja Dosha is not likely to break this marriage after 8 or 10 years in most of the cases. Hence the timing of the marriage is a very important factor and this factor alone can make or break a marriage on its own and therefore the timing of marriage should be given proper attention before predicting the results of horoscope matching.

In the final but again very important step of horoscope matching, remedies for some doshas present in one or both of the horoscopes are considered to reduce such doshas. These doshas may include Kuja Dosha, Sarpa Dosha, Nadi Dosh, Bhakut Dosh or any other Dosh and by doing relevant remedies for these doshas which generally include the use of gemstones, yantras, mantras and pujas, the strength of these doshas can be reduced significantly which means that these doshas will not bother the couple very much and as a result the couple will be able to enjoy a far better marriage. All the steps of horoscope matching mentioned above are very important aspects of horoscope matching and every good astrologer pays due attention to all of these steps before predicting the final outcome of horoscope matching. Hence horoscope matching should not be decided on the basis of gun Milan alone and all the relevant details should be analyzed and compared before deciding the fate of horoscope matching.
