How Ashtakoot Guna Milan help us in Match Making

Ashtakoot Guna Milan is basically the Vedic Astrological system used by the astrologers to correctly suggest the astrology believers about their upcoming marital life. The main principle of Ashtakoot Guna Milan during Kundali matching is based upon the Birth Nakshatras, Moon sign and Moon charts of both the partners expected to be married. These factors are further composed of 36 Gunas and 8 Koots. Each Koot is given certain Gunas. A careful reading of these elements according to the Kundali Milan for marriage can tell you how compatible and reliable the marriage would be. Here are the ten revelations done by the Ashtakoot Guna Milan:

1)      What Varna do the match belong to?‘Varna koot’ is the first category of valuing the overall compatibility. The Vedic astrology has divided the twelve zodiac signs into 4 Varnas. Namely these Varnas are Brahmin, Kshatriya, Vaishya and Shudras. The zodiac signs are categorised as following:


 It is considered very auspicious for the marriage if the births of both partners fall in the same Varnas. If the Varna of Groom is higher than that of Bride the match is considered approachable. If the Varna of bride is higher than that of the groom then the marriage is not approachable.

2)      Who would be more dominant after the marriage?‘Vasya koot’ is the 2nd test that checks the strength of a native with which he/she can keep an attractive hold over the other partner. It holds 2 points out of the 36 Gunas in Kundali matching for marriage. It concludes the dominating factor of both the partners after the marriage. In Vasya koot the natives are to be tested in five categories of animals namely Chatushpada (Aries, Taurus, 1st half of Capricorn and 2nd half of Sagittarius), Human (Gemini, Virgo, Libra, Aquarius and 1st half of Sagittarius), Jalchar (Cancer, Pieces and 2nd half of Capricorn), Vanacara (Leo) and Keet (Scorpio).The maximum score for this section is 2 which is marked when the two categories match properly according to the moon signs but not the planets. The valuation is as follows:


The boxes with score two are more compatible than the other pairs.

3)      What would be the overall well-being and destiny of the pair?‘Tara koot’ depicts the well being and the futuristic approach of the couple. It divides the stars into nine groups. These groups clearly indicate the successfulness of the marriage. These groups in Kundali matching for marriage are Janma Tara (Bad), Sampath Tara (Good), Vibath Tara (Bad), Kshema Tara (Good) Prathiyak Tara (Bad), Sathaka Tara (Good), Vadhai Tara (Bad), Maithra Tara (Good), Parama Maithra Tara (Good). To conclude the wellbeing we count from Girls Nakshatra to Boy’s Nakshatra. Suppose the count is 12, dividing 12 by 9 we get quotient 1 and remainder 3. Since 3 represents Vibath Tara which foretells accidents, difficulties, and unfortunate events so the marriage is not approachable.

4)      How intense would your sexual life be?‘Yoni Koot’ is one of the most sought-after concerns in Kundali Milan. It depicts the sexual attraction between the couple. Would be spouses are categorized with certain animals which project the sexual behavior and internal compatibility.These divisions are done with the help of Nakshatras. Each Nakshatras defines certain animal. Sexual compatibility is determined by the five animal pairs formed by the girl and the boy. These five pairs are Swabhava Yoni, Friend Yoni, Neutral Yoni, Opposite Yoni and Enemy Yoni.The sexual compatibility is highest in the Swabhava Yoni pair where both partners share the class of yoni and least in the Enemy Yoni pair where both partners happen to belong to completely different yoni class. Classification of Nakshatras on the basis of Yoni is as follows:

Nakshatras of the would-be spousesClass of Yoni (name of animal)
AshwiniShatbheeshaAshwa (Horse)
BharanuRevatiGaja (Elephant)
PushyaKritikaMesh (Sheep)

JyeshthaAnuradhaMriga (Deer)
PurvashadaSharavanaVanara (Monkey)

According to the traditional Kundali Milan, Natives of same yoni class are said to be more sexually compatible than natives of different yoni classes. For example, an expected couple including a native with Mool or Arda Nakshatra and another native with Ashlesha or Aurnavasu Nakshatra is highly unauspicious. This is because Shwan (dog) and Marjarta (cat) are two highly incompatible species.

5)      How compassionate and mutual understanding would your relationships be?‘Graha-Maitri Koot’ is the astrological tool to determine the mentality and mutual love of the couple. It also determines the willingness of the spouses to work for a good relationship. In simple words, this section determines if you and your partner would decide upon same things most of the time.Without the use of the in-depth study of Kundali Milan, one can easily figure out how compassionate would the pair be. All the 12 zodiac signs are ruled by a certain planet. These planets, according to their basic element, tend to be friendly, neutral or enemy with certain planets.If the zodiacs of the pair belong to the same Moon sign and ruled by friendly planets, the pair is believed to be highly compassionate and mutually understanding. Same way, the couple would not mutually understand if their zodiacs are ruled by planets which are enemies among themselves. The highly compassionate pair is deemed 6 points.

6)      What are the basic characteristics of the couple?‘Gana Koot’ is the element that determines the basic characteristics of an individual. Every human being is divided into three categories. They are Manushya, Rakshasha, and Devta. These categories depict three kinds of nature or behavior. Astrology says that couples with groom and bride both in Dev Gana would be highly auspicious. A groom born in Rakshasha Gana and bride born in Dev Gana would make a very unstable and inauspicious. Prefer to choose a partner who is of same Gana.A native of Deva Gana would speak softly and has lots of patience whereas a native with Rakshasha Gana would be rude, straightforward, short-tempered and aggressive. A Manushya Gana person would behave moderately. He/she would be patient but would be aggressive if the situation demands.     Each Nakshatras is assigned a particular Gana.

‘Gana’Nakshatras under Gana
1)      Dev GanaAshwani, Mrigsheera, Punarvasu, Pushya, Hasta, Swati, Anuraadha, Shravana and Revati
2)      Manushya GanaBharanu, Rohini, Arda, Purvaphalguni, Uttaraphalguni, Purvashada, Uttarashada, Purvabhadra and Uttarabhadra.
3)      Rakshasha GanaKritika, Ashlesha, Makha, Chitra, Vishakha, Jyeshtha, Mool, Dhanishtha and Shatbheesha.

7)      Would you both have sound health after marriage?‘Bhakoot Koot’ is the most important factor after ‘Nadi Dosh’ in Kundali Matching. It is determined by taking reference of Moon’s position in the space. It moves from Ashwani Nakshatra to Revati Nakshatra and from Aries sign to Pieces sign. The determination of its position at a particular point projects one’s health and the length of his/her life.When we check compatibility of a pair through Kundali matching from marriage, we have the positions of two moons each from one partner. According to the position of Moon in both the Kundali horoscopes combination are made. 1/1, 1/7, 3/11 and 4/10 are the auspicious combinations between the position of natives’ moons. 2/12, 5/9 and 6/8 are the inauspicious combinations between the positions of natives’ moons.   

8)      How sound your partner would be hereditary?‘Nadi Koot’ is the most important test in the Ashtakoot Guna Milan in Kundali Milan for marriage. This factor alone contains 8 points. It depicts a couple’s hereditary and its overall strength. Kundali prediction is deemed complete only after this test is being considered. The health of your pulse and nerves are what this test tends to expose. These nerves carry your blood and your blood contains genes which also decide your offspring. A defaulted or less scoring Nadi system results in Nadi dosh in Kundali – Astrology Kundali.  The mechanism of ‘Nadi Koot’ involves 3 Nadis – Adi (Wind), Madhya (Bile) and Antya (Phlegm). These Nadis are assigned to all the Nakshatras as follows:

1)      Adi (Wind)Arda, Ashwani, Hasta, Jyeshtha, Mool, Purvabhadra, Punarvasu, Shatbheesha, Uttaraphalguni
2)      Madhya (Bile)Anuraadha, Bharanu, Chitra, Dhanishtha, Mrigsheera, Purvaphalguni, Purvashaddha, Pushya, Uttarabhadra
3)      Antya (Phlegm)Ashlesha, Kritika, Magha, Revati, Rohini, Shravana, Swati, Uttarashaddha, vishakha

 The Nadi compatibility of a pair is determined on the score out of 8. The scores to a particular couple are given on the basis of the following table:

  These scores would refine the most important test in the Kundali Milan for marriage.
