Vedic astrology is rich in its contents. It lays down specific methods to understand human relationships and helps in taking informed decisions. In this article we will discuss how Vedic astrology can be used to check the compatibility of couples.
Here, we use the horoscopes of two leading celebrities of Bollywood – Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif. Salman Khan is the most eligible bachelor of Bollywood today. Katrina Kaif is the leading Bollywood actress and the media keeps talking about the prospects of her marriage with Salman Khan.
This analysis will help understand the chemistry between the may-be-couple. This will be done through “Guna Milan” (tally based on Asterisms) in the compatibility horoscope. The basis of computation is the “birth Nakshatras” (Asterisms) of both under reference.
Salman Khan was born on 27th December 1965. The birth Nakshatra is “Dhanishtha 3rd pada”. Katrina Kaif was born on 16th July 1984. The birth Nakshatra is “Satabhisaj 1st pada”.
Vedic astrology has prescribed two steps for matchmaking. The first step involves “Guna Milan” for judging the compatibility on the basis of birth Nakshatra. The second step is “Bhava Milan” (tally of relevant houses) for judging the quality of marriage. In this a detailed analysis of the compatibility of the key houses in the horoscope of the couple is essential. The exact time of birth of the couple is required for this type of analysis. If the exact time of birth is not available, only “Guna Milan” can be done.
“Guna Milan” or “Nakshatra Milan” is also known as “Ashtkoota Milan”. Here, analysis is made using 8 parameters. The reference point is the character of each Nakshatra. The eight parameters are “Varna”, “Vashya”, “Tara (Din)”, “Yoni”, “Graha Maitri”, “Gana”, “Bhakut” and “Nadi”.
Salman and Katrina score the following points in “Nakshatra Milan”:
Varna: 1 out of 1
Vashya: 2 out of 2
Tara / Din: 3 out of 3
Yoni: 2 out of 4
Graha Maitri: 5 out of 5
Gana: 6 out of 6
Bhakut: 7 out of 7
Nadi: 8 out of 8.
Total: 34 out of 36
The match between Salman and Katrina pass the test of “Guna Milan” (Nakshatra Milan) as per the tenets of Vedic astrology. The minimum point required under this system is 18 out of 36. The tally of the horoscopes is 34. This is considered good. The horoscope suggests that marriage will be compatible. They share a good chemistry. However, Salman may need to let go the memories of the past to bring in more trust and commitment in the developing relationship.
Sagittarius is the rising Lagna in the horoscope of Katrina Kaif which happens to be the 9th lord (fortune) for Salman Khan. This indicates that this relationship will bring in luck and prosperity to both Salman and Katrina if they get married.
The matchmaking horoscopes of Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan suggest that the compatibility of the couple is good. This conclusion is based on the method of “Guna Milan” only. In the absence of the exact time of birth “Bhava Milan” has not been done for the couple.
