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.
