9. COMPATIBILITY ANALYSIS THROUGH VEDIC ASTROLOGY / JYOTISH
This is an example lesson from the advanced course Applied Vedic Astrology. For more information click here. Questions? roeland@dirah.org In traditional Vedic society one of the most important uses of astrology is to evaluate whether the charts of people who are planning to get married are in agreement to each other. This is a subject about which a lot of confusion exists. Some traditional astrologers mainly look at the Kutas agreement. At first sight, this seems to be an extensive system, but in fact it is only based on how well the Nakshatra in which the Moon of one partner is placed fits with the Moon Nakshatra of the other partner. We will deal with this system later. However just looking at the Kutas agreement of the Moon is quite limited.

There is Kuja Dosha in the chart if: Mars is placed in the first house. According to quite a number of astrologers. Mars is in the eighth house. I think it is useful to be aware that Mars in certain positions may damage relationships. but also from Mars and Venus we may well find this affliction in something like 80% of the charts.. 2.. but not in Capricorn or Pisces.htm What sometimes happens is that some people have a hard time getting married because there are indications in their chart that marriage will be difficult.4.7. Probably Saturn in the above houses also causes damage. the marital tie (eighth house) and/or sexual pleasure (twelfth house) either by being in these houses or aspecting them. family life (the second house). KUJA DOSHA One very well known affliction commonly ‘solved’ this way is the Kuja Dosha affliction. but not in Cancer. http://www. Mars is in the fourth house.How to analyze relationships using Vedic astrology: Compatibility Analysi. And for relationships we do not only have to look at the Rashi but also at the navamsa. However. the affliction will be neutralized and the karma that has to do with the affliction will have to be faced in a future lifetime. 1. I do not think if we see Kuja Dosha in a chart.2. but not in Sagittarius. which is looked upon. I may have an unconventional opinion about this. Especially if we look for Kuja Dosha not only from the ascendant. this is just one factor among many. The idea is that if two people who have the same affliction in their chart get married.8 and 12 from the Moon and even if Mars is located in these houses from Venus. Especially since it occurs in most charts. Mars is in the twelfth house. there is also Kuja Dosha in a chart if Mars is located in the 1.org/compatib. I also have doubts whether this method of ‘cancelling the affliction’ really works. I do not think that making it diffficult for people from fullfilling what may be their heart desires is a good use of astrology. but not in Scorpio. Mars is in the seventh house. LONGEVITY Another factor. This affliction has to do with certain positions of Mars that are thought to be problematic for married life. is the longvity of the partners. but I rather face my karma during this lifetime than saving my (bad) karma and probably prolonging the number of times that I have to return to this earth . but not in Aries.dirah. Another approach is that if someone has afflictions in the chart you look for another person who has the same afflictions. it is useful to ring the alarm. The logic behind the exceptions is not always clear. The reasoning is that if one of 2 of 13 4/15/2010 2:37 AM . The reasoning behind this is that Mars is a malefic and if positioned in the above houses it will damage the houses of marriage (seventh house). the home environment (the fourth).

http://www. You also can analyze planetary pairs. However. This is also the case if the 3 of 13 4/15/2010 2:37 AM . I am not going to treat this extensively. If the Venus of one person is in opposition to the Mars of the other person that will mean strong sexual attraction. they symbolize different aspects of the relationship (for example Mercury symbolizes the communication in the relationship). it is possible that B will drain (twelfth house) A..dirah. You can also compare the Moon. which I like. Therefore. The subject of longevity is a complex subject in itself. My advice would be to keep it simple. Of course. An example: If the Moon of A is in Leo and the Moon of B is in Cancer we have a problem because fire and water do not go together well.How to analyze relationships using Vedic astrology: Compatibility Analysi. Example: Libra and Taurus are in 6/8 relationship. This is an easy ‘rule of thumb’ which may be more useful than some complicated quantitative methods that in practise do not work. There are some expections to this rule. is the following: Look for the ascendant of person A and person B. This is also the case if the Venus of A conjuncts the Mars of B. There are a couple of methods to predict the longevity. The Moon of A is in the second house from the Moon of B. Mercury. If the ascendant is in a 2/12 or 6/8 relationship this is problematic. If the Sun of one person is in opposition to the Moon of the other person this works well. I do not think comparing Jupiter and Saturn is very useful unless both people have a big age difference (let us say more than 5 years). Sun. A similar rule can be made of the relationship between the Sun and the Moon. If an astrologer thinks one of the partners may have a short life he may very well think this person is not a person who should marry.htm the partners will have a short life a marriage is not very useful. Like if both signs are rules by the same planet this is good. This is because Jupiter and Saturn are slow moving. To find explanations look for the elements the planets are in. Also if both ascendants are in the same sign this is a good factor. 3.. the Moon of B is in the twelfth house (sign Cancer) from the Moon of A (sign Leo). However as Richard Houck as shown in his book ‘the astrology of death’ these methods do not work very well. AN EASY VEDIC ASTROLOGICAL ANALYSIS One method of Vedic astrological compatibility analysis.org/compatib. If the first house (the house itself and the lord) and the Moon in a chart are strong and there are not many planets in dushtana houses a person will probably live longer than if the first house and the Moon are weak and there are many planets in dushtana houses. I also think that a 3/11 relationship can work very well. The relationship will be somewhat better for B then for A. see in what signs they are and what the relationships of these signs are. but if it is in a 5/9 relationship this is good. they do have something in common. Venus and Mars in both charts. but since Venus rules both signs. Apart from conjunctions Kendra relationships (4/10 and the opposition) may be difficult.

That is not a bad experience.dirah. I love to go to India with you").. 4. If she activates my ninth house she may broaden my horizon and I may feel great because of her. To avoid an overload take the Tajika orbs and divide them by two. What I would like to suggest now is not so much as to use the Tajika method for analyzing a birthchart but to make a comptability analysis using the Tajika method. but this merely reflects the nature of reality that sometimes is complex.htm Sun of A conjuncts the Moon of B. The principle is easy. For example: If we analyse the relationship between the Sun and Jupiter between charts we look for the maximum orb of the Sun which is 15 and the maximum orb of Jupiter which is 9. If it is being activated by her malefics it could be that she somehow limits or frustrates the way I would like to broaden my horizon ("Oh no. you will encounter many aspects. By the way. A (the Sun person) will feel stimulated by B (the Jupiter person). if the aspect would be a trine A (the Moon person) would merely feel ‘grounded’ by B (the Saturn person). http://www. you are again planning a trip to India?"). 4 of 13 4/15/2010 2:37 AM . Just look what kind of aspects the planets of A make with the planets of B. which is the chart of partner B. TAJIKA ANALYSIS There is another type of analysis possible. He will note the stimulating Jupiterian energy of B. B (the Jupiter) person will feel energized or empowered by A (the Sun person).. If it is a square instead of a trine the stimulation may be a bit too much.How to analyze relationships using Vedic astrology: Compatibility Analysi. SUDARSHAN CHAKRA It is also possible to analyze the influence of planets in houses. I do not see a principle reason why we should not do this. A (the Moon person) will feel restricted by B (the Saturn person). If you use this method. The ascendant of both charts is at the same place (usually at the top of the circles).org/compatib. A great tool for this is the so-called Sudarshan Chakra. This is a chart made up of two circles. You can see which houses of A are activated by partner B. THE SUDARSHAN CHART IS SHOWN IN THE COURSE MATERIAL 5. especially if my ninth house is being activated by her benefics ("Yes. In cases like these will be a good exchange of female (Shakti: Moon and Venus) and male (Shiva: Sun and Mars) energies. For example: It is also possible that in addition to the aspect I mentioned before the Moon of A makes a square to the Saturn of B. I do think this is a fruitful and not too difficult method. like the circles used in Western Astrology. There is an inner chart. some of them seem to be contradictory. For example if I have a partner who has a lot of planets that activate my eighth house it is very well possible that I experience her as confrontational. it is recommended to use the South Indian format (which I use in this course) because in this format the signs in different charts are in the same place. Let us say the Sun of A makes a trine to the Jupiter of B. which can be the chart of partner A and there is an outer chart. If you make an analysis like that. Although Tajika analysis is seldom used when analyzing birthcharts.

If you want to keep it simple. Mercury. Dina Kuta: If the Nakshatra of the man is 0. If the total points are below that minimum than it is possible that the astrologer will advise against the marriage. Because the remainder is 5 no points are being given. The outcome will be a maximum orb of 6 degrees. 2.. but also the Nakshatras of the ascendant and Sun. Personally. which is the regular Tajika orb for a Sun-Jupiter aspect. Six points are given.. all sextiles have the same maximum orb and so on). you may well have another opinion about this. A manusha man can marry a deva woman (5 points are given) or a manusha woman (6 points are given). If the number is 9 or more it is divided by 9 and we work with the remainder. 6 or 8 Nakshatras from the Nakshatra of the woman 3 points will be given. KUTAS ANALYSIS In what follows I will explain the traditional method of Kutas analysis. A deva man can marry a deva or manusha woman.dirah. He cannot marry a rakshaka woman (0 points are given). human (manusha) and demon (rakshaka) Nakshatras. 4.org/compatib. He can marry a rakshaka woman (6 points). calculating the maximum orb for each planetary combination is better. paragraph 5 under temperaments. If you have the courage and time to do that. Of course. I would like to suggest a maximum orb for all aspect of 5 degrees. Venus. 2. The Kutas analysis consists of 12 factors. I only look at conjunctions with Rahu and Ketu and not at aspects. Let us say the Nakshatra of the man is 14 Nakshatras from the Nakshatra of the woman 14/9=1 and the remainder is 5. please feel free to do so. A rakshaka man should not marry a deva woman (1 point) or a manusha woman (0 points). When the lords of the signs in the rashi or navamsa of the man and woman are the same bad Gana Kuta results can be compensated (however this does not change the points that are being given). To avoid an overload this maximum orb is divided by two. What makes this analysis complicated is that for every planetary combination you have to calculate a maximum orb. People who have their Moons in Nakshatras that fall in the same category can marry. This may very well be the reason that in contemporary Western astrology the maximum orbs are the same for certain kind of aspects (all squares have the same maximum orb. To have a good relationship a minimum of points is required. Mars. The traditional method consists of comparing the Nakshatra in which the Moon of the bride is located with the Nakshatra in which the Moon of the bridegroom is. Jupiter and Saturn.htm (15+9):2=12.

It is also possible to do a more sophisticated analysis in which not only the Nakshatras in which the Moon is are compared.

He should not marry a rakshaka woman (0 points). http://www.How to analyze relationships using Vedic astrology: Compatibility Analysi. After the analysis is made all the points are added up. Every factor can give some points. 5 of 13 4/15/2010 2:37 AM .

When lord A is a friend to lord B and lord B is neutral to lord A this is good. Bad results: Moon in the chart of the man is in the 2. Good results: Moon in chart of the woman is in the 2 (gives longevity). The bad results coming from a certain number are the opposite of the good results. This factor is mentioned in a Kuta analysis. 19. Good results: Moon in Chart of the man is in the 12 (gives longevity). When both are neutral. someone with the Moon in Vishakha would be a great sexual match for someone with the Moon in Chitra.
