By Sunita Chabra “Men are from Mars and women are from Venus”. Love and relationship resulting in marriage between a man and a woman is one of the most complicated structures. Man and woman are psychologically different but have strange vibrations and transmission of feelings from heart to heart, which brings them together. Love brings joy in the heart and smile on the lips and it also increases the level of efficiency in the person. There are songs and poems sung and written in the praise of love. There is that need to live and stay together forever and ever. A happy marital life would give all round prosperity, growth and happiness in our life. However when two people in love tie the knot that is get married it somehow changes the chemistry or equation of love. There is tussle between the force of attraction and force of repulsion and if the latter is overpowering it leads to --Divorce. In this article I would leave the legal and social nature of marriage but concentrate on the astrological nature of marriage and thereby show the need of MATCHMAKING of horoscopes of the boy and the girl. Astrologically planet Venus symbolizes love, passion and pleasures of marriage. The placement of planet Venus in the chart in different signs shows different nature. Venus in the sign Aries ruled by planet Mars or in the sign Scorpio ruled by planet Pluto brings fiery and strong sexual needs. Mars is a planet of aggression and if there is aspect of planet Saturn or Sun on Venus, which is placed in the sign Aries it could cause disharmony and frequent friction between the married couple. Depending upon the position of the planet Venus and Mars in the partner’s chart it could even bring frequent disputes and even extra marital relationships. Venus in the sign Taurus and Libra increases the sensual nature and if this planet is not well matched with that of your partner’s it could bring lack of physical gratification in marriage. Venus in the sign Gemini or Virgo the person likes to have mental compatibility with the partner. Everything in marriage is connected with the mind. The need to talk, visualize and fantasize is strong. Mind is the center or core of activity. In matchmaking analysis such a person needs to be matched with person of such needs. The person looks for an intelligent and witty life partner with strong sense of humor. Venus placed in the sign Cancer needs emotional satisfaction. There is need for constant reassurance from your spouse. The spouse may have to say, “I love you” in words and also in gestures. Fidelity--- is an important requirement for sustenance of such a marriage. Venus placed in the sign Leo in the chart the manners and style, appearance, family background and the way of living is very important for such a person. Candlelight dinners and romance is very important. Venus placed in the sign Sagittarius or Pisces one looks for beauty, freedom and also adjustments from one’s partners. There can be no marital happiness if Venus is ill placed or afflicted. In Vedic astrology another important planet, which is given great importance in match making, is planet --Mars. The position of planet Mars is so important in a chart that many a marriages are denied on matchmaking compatibility analysis even if other match making points are met satisfactory.
Planet Mars is position in 1st, 2nd, 12th, 4th, 7th and 8th house in a horoscope chart gives rise to Manglik Dosha or “Mars defect”. The position of planet Mars is carefully studied and matched with the boy’s and the girl’s chart. The similar position of Mars in any of these above-mentioned houses in both the girl and the boy’s horoscope chart then the “Mars defect” gets cancelled. That is if in the boy’s chart planet Mars is placed in the 7th house and in the girl’s chart planet Mars is placed in the 8th house there is no “Mars defect”. It is commonly believed that if a person with Manglik Dosha or “Mars defect” marries non-Manglik or with a person with no “Mars defect” either marriage ends in a divorce or there is death of the spouse. This is the general but a very strong belief. Marriage is a most complicated structure followed all over the world. When or why it started is also not known but there must have been many psychological reasons behind it. Marriage gives social, religious and legal acceptance to a relationship. Through astrological match making the effort is to make marriages more successful and lasting. The effort is that the union of two souls should give happiness and avoid failures. In match making compatibility ratio check the effort is to check astrologically whether the boy and the girl are physically and mentally compatibility or not. Although there are no 100% guaranteed system in this world to know or predict but this is one of the most popular method of match making adopted in India where most of the marriages are still arranged by the parents or elders in the family. This system can be used by anyone where the birth details like date of birth; time of birth and place of birth of the boy and the girl is known. There is a total scale of 36 points divided in 8 segments of match making. Each segment has its own importance. This is to ensure longevity of the marriage. A careful examination and match making of the horoscope charts of the boy and the girl by compatibility ratio method, placement of planet Venus and Manglik Dosha or “Mars defect” analysis a couple can realize his/her romantic dreams and have long and happy marriage. A person who is happy at heart can perform better at work and he can probably face the problems of life with the support of the loving partner in a better manner. CASE STUDY: Sample chart of a woman (name undisclosed) who got married at very young age. She had marital problems with her in-laws and also had major differences with her husband. She got divorce and when she came for consultation she was thinking of remarriage. Planetary positions: Ascendant-Sagittarius Saturn- Capricorn Ketu-Capricorn Jupiter Aquarius Mars-Gemini Moon-Gemini Rahu-Cancer Sun-Virgo Mercury-Virgo Venus-Libra
Her ascendant and lord of the house of marriage are in dual sign, which indicates more than one marriage. She had marital problems as according to the Vedic astrology she was Manglik or had “Mars defect” and the boy she got married was not Manglik or had no “Mars defect”. Marriage of a Manglik person should be with a Manglik person only. Planet Mars in her marriage sector gave her lots of problems which subsequently led to divorce. In her second marriage the matching compatibility ratio method or match making analysis of the two horoscopes (of the boy and the girl) shows good results. There is a match of 22 points out of 36, which is significantly good as for good compatibility (the minimum required 18 points should be present). The Manglik and Nadi Dosha are also absent and Bhakut matching is also good. Some adjustments will surely be required by both of them as described below: 1. No “Mars defect” or Manglik Dosha is present and the bad consequences associated with it are ruled out. 2. NADI matching shows 8 points. There is no NADI DOSHA. This indicates that the couple will enjoy full lives and the outward physique and the internal metabolism will stay healthy and fit for the both of them. 3. BHAKUT matching shows 7 points. This is a positive aspect. Bhakut indicates progeny and welfare prospects of the couple. Children will be there and they will be healthy. Children will also be a source of pride and satisfaction for you. 4. GANA matching shows 0 point. This indicates that the boy and the girl have different temperaments but can adjust with each other with some effort. 5. GRAH-MAITRI matching shows 5 points. This indicates excellent matching for the two with respect to the outlook and objectives in life. They are of similar intellectual level and share similar feelings on spiritual matters. 6. YONI matching shows 4 point. This indicates excellent compatibility in biological and physical satisfaction for both of you from each other. 7. TARA matching shows 0 point. This hinders the good health conditions that the two will enjoy but this is insignificant due to the good matching on the Manglik and Nadi aspects. 8. VASHYA matching shows 0 points. This indicates that the attraction and affection is slightly less. But this can develop with time. 9. VARNA matching shows 1 point. This indicates similar egos and will have a respect for each other. In the final analysis it can be said that you can go ahead with the match, as the areas of difference are minor and can be adjusted by mutual understanding.
