Is horoscope matching scientific? Or it is nothing but a tradition?
If you hold such opinions on horoscope matching for marriage, you are not a new one or the only one. Many people sideline the importance of horoscope matching on the grounds of mutual understanding or practicality.
That’s why we have come up with the scientific explanation of horoscope so that you can determine if it really works or just a myth.
Understanding the Effects of Planetary Positions on Life
In layman’s terms, astrology is based on the planetary positions and how they affect one’s life.
But how the positions of the planets affect our lives?
You have already known that there are 12 Zodiac signs. Right?
The zodiac is created by 12 constellations that stay along the annual path of the sun across the sky. Or you can say that the zodiac signs are actually the constellation through which the Sun, Moon and other planets travel.
When a planet passes through a specific section of the Zodiac, it causes certain events. Babies born at this occasion own the same traits. The planets move from one sign of the Zodiac to another. After some time, they return to the same sign being their starting point.
People born in different years, but during the time, when a specific planet passes through the same sign of the Zodiac, also unleashes very similar characteristics, relating to the domain occupied by this planet. Besides, the movement Earth around the Sun, the Moon around the Earth and the rotation of Earth upon its axis also play an important role in this context.
How Kundli Matching Works
Kundai matching, as we’ve said earlier, is all about the comparison of the planetary positions of two individuals. For example, one of the key parts of Kundli matching is Nadidosha check.
According to astrology, each of the 27 nakshatras is divided into 3 categories of Nadi—that are aadi, Madhya and antya relating to Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
So if two individuals have the same Nadi type, Nadidosha occurs. Two individuals with extreme pitta might have heated arguments even on petty issues. What happens if these two individuals get tied into wedlock?
Similarly, the matching of the Kundlis figures out the compatibility based on an eight-step method that is also known as Ashtakoota.
Here is a brief explanation of each step or TESTS.
- Varna Test to analyze the abilities of the couples. There are four varnas—Brahmana, Kshatriya, Vaishya and Shudra. The point is given if the groom belongs to higher varna as there is no risk of the marriage being plagued with egoistic clashes. Vashya test to assess the compatibility based on obedience and malleability (of the bride).
- Tart Koota test to assess the financial condition of the potential couple.
- Yoni test to determine the sexual compatibility between the couple.
- GarbhaMitra to determine the compatibility of their intellect and outlook with each other.
- Gana test to determine behavioural compatibility.
- Bhakoot test to assess the prosperity and longevity of the couple.
- Nadi test to assess reproductive viability and fertility.
All these tests are composed of 36 points out of which the compatibility score is determined.
Kundli Milan is purely based on the planetary positions based in one’s horoscope. These positions define the characteristics of an individual. That’s why Kundli Milan determines the compatibility between a boy and a girl before marriage.
