Relationship and Love in Vedic Chart Analysis
  • The life span of both the partners and if they are close.
  • Strength of the relationship
  • Smooth Flow of energy from one partner to another and vice versa
  • Possibility of a progeny in the relationship
  • Match of the mind and soul of both partners.
  • Obstructions to the relationship
  • Any sudden hindrances and bad events related to the life.
  • Balance of male and female energy among the partners.
  • Strength of the sex life among partners/spouses.
  • Nature, mind and character of each person.
  • Relationship between the families of the partners.
  • Balance of up’s and down’s in the partners lives.
  • Intellectual, Physical and Emotional compatibility.
  • Relationship with the in-laws.

Points to be considered for compatibility analysis:

  • Ascendant of partners: It is good if both the ascendants are not placed in the same sign or house.
    • Check if the Tattwa of the signs are compatible ( Jal, Vayu, Agni, Bhoomi etc)
    • A 6/8 or 2/12 relationship between ascendants is not advisable.
    • Same sign, 7/7 aspect or 5/9 relationship is the most preferred.
  • Lord of the Ascendant and Atma Karaka:
    • If the lords of both the ascendants of partners are same then it is fine.
    • If the lords are friends then it is auspicious.
    • Positive if Atma Karaka are friends or same.
  • Long Life:
    • Various methods have been prescribed in the classics for estimating life.
    • A look at the strength of 1) Lagna ( you physical self), 2) Lagna Lord ( The intelligence that drives you) and 3) the Sun ( Soul) and Moon ( Mind) is the easiest and the best method.

  • Merging of charts: Merge both the charts and assess the relationship of the planets:
    • Sun, Moon, Mars, Venus – if they have 5/9, 7/7, same, or Kendra relationship then it is fine.
    • Samasaptakam ( Moon and Ascendant) indicates a good match depending on the Rasis/ lords and they should be friends
    • This basically represents how the mind, soul, physical and mental energy flows between the partners.
    • Could also assess what each partner brings into the relationship
    • Merge both charts in Rasi and Navamsa (D1 and D9) to assess if there is harmony in the merger.
    • Understand the houses that get activated by merging of charts – for ex: if a female partners chart activates the tenth house of the males chart with benefics then it will give a boost to the male’s career. Similarly we need to check the planets and houses that get activated/debilitated in the spouses charts.

Position of Moon and Upapada:

Very important factor as it indicates the mind in a relationship.

Relative Distance from the Male’s moon to the Female’s moon in their respective charts should be less than 7 houses and this will enable the partners to reach to each other and listen to get connected in the same direction.

Lords of the moon houses of spouses should be friends. Also, a match on the Tattwa of the moon houses is important. Upapada gives an indication on the direction and timing of marriage.

  • Planetary pairs and Male/ Female Energy:

Assess the Male and Female Energies in the chart. Sun and Mars in the Male and Venus and Moon in the female.

A very important indication in the matching of horoscopes.It is good to avoid horoscopes where-in Dasha’s of both partners change in a time frame of about a year. Generally regarded inauspicious if both the partners Dashas change at the same time.
