In India, it is common for two individuals to match their kundli’s before getting married to check compatibility. To match kundli’s there are 36 ‘gunas’ which are verified, to get married, at least 18 gunas must match to show at least 50% compatibility.
Kundli’s can be used to a person’s advantage as astrologers often predict what decisions should be made for a better future. A person’s kundli also explains in detail of their nature, personality, health etc is or will be in the future. In recent times Astrology has made a comeback and the youth are coming back to the practice of following lucky stones, or lucky colours, or even lucky days. These are all also information that a kundli provides. Vedic Astrology is the base of Kundli and Matchmaking.
For Indian Marriages, matching of Kundli’s is very important. For this matching, 12 planetary positions are put into 12 houses each which provides a different aspect of what a marriage consists of, example- First House demotes Personality, Second house denotes- Fortune and Family and so on.
Based on the positions of the planets at the time of birth of an individual, the Ascendent sign is calculated. Location of planets like Jupiter, Rahu, Ketu, Shani etc is noted, position of the moon and sun is also notes, along with Indian Sun and Moon signs.
Zodiac signs are divided into Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius), Fire and Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius), Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn), and Earth and Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces). Typically Fire signs go well with other Fire and Air signs whereas Earth signs go well with other Earth and Water signs.
The greatest advantage of Vedic Astrology is the ability to prevent an event before it happens, Vedic Kundli can tell if something disadvantageous can happen to an individuals and provides remedies for the same, for example Health issues, Kundli Dosha’s, financial issues etc.
