Bhakoot Dosha in Kundli Matching

In Horoscope Matching the Horoscope chart of the groom and the bride is matched so as to find out their compatibility level. It is believed that a matching of 18 and above Guna out of total 36 is important for any marriage. However one of the most important Koot in horoscope matching is Bhakoot Dosha or Rashikoot. Its importance can be taken from the fact that it has 7 points which is second most to Nadi dosha which has 8 points. Therefore the importance of Bhakoot cannot be ignored. The 6-8 Bhakoot dosha is also known as Mrityu Shadashtak Dosha.  It is known to bring death or death type of situation to the couple. Therefore cancellation of Bhakoot dosha is very important.

There are three types of Bhakoot

2-12 (Dwitiya Dwadash Bhakoot)

9-5 (Navpancham Bhakoot) and

6-8 (Shadashtak Bhakoot)

Bhakoot or Rashikoot is the Rashi dispositions of the rashi of the bride and the bridegroom from one Rashi to another.

The following combinations are possible.

1/1, 1/7, 2/12, 3/11,4/10, 5/9 and 6/8

Further these combinations are bifurcated into auspicious and inauspicious as given below:

Auspicious (Sad bhakoot): 1/1, 1/7, 3/11, 4/10

Inauspicious (Dushta bhakoot) : 2/12, 5/9, 6/8

If the Rashi of the bride and groom are in the position of 2/12, 5/9 or 6/8 from each other, then the Bhakoot score given is 0 (zero) out of 7 points, which forms the Bhakoot Dosha. On the other hand if the respective rashi dispositions is 1/1, 1/7, 3/11 or 4/10, then full 7 points are given during Guna Milan and there is no dosha.

This table is given in all books related to Horoscope Matching. The above Bhakoot table is also used in software for matching purposes. The above table does not take in reference any factor that is responsible for the cancellation of Bhakoot Dosha.

6-8 Rashi positions of bride and bridegroom from each other, results in death / sickly native after marriage, 9-5 position results in problems related to sickness of native and also progeny problems and 2-12 position would cause poverty, suffering due to financial mismanagement, loss of job , health problems, debts etc.  The 6-8 or Shadashtaka related to longevity, injury and serious illness. Like Aries and Virgo, Scorpio and Pisces form the 6-8 bhakoot dosha. The Nav pancham or the 9-5 Bhakoot would direct the couple away from physical pleasure. The love bonding will be missing and also it will hamper the birth of children. The example of 9-5 bhakoot dosha are Leo and Sagittarius, Taurus and Virgo. Dwirdwadash or 2-12 Bhakoot would cause excessive expenditure and reducing the couple’s financial position to poverty. The example of 2-12 Bhakoot are Scorpio and Sagittarius, and also Leo and Virgo.  One important thing to note is that if the Rashi lords are similar like Capricorn and Aquarius then despite it forming a 2-12 Bhakoot dosha it gets cancelled as lord of both rashi is Saturn. These are some factors which cancel Bhakoot dosha. The details of how Bhakoot dosha gets cancelled are discussed below:

 Cancellation or Parihar of Bhakoot Dosha

  1. Bhakoot Dosha gets cancelled If Rashi lords are same of both horoscopes, Bhakut dosh is said to be nullified. The 6-8 Bhakut dosha is said to be lessened in case of Aries-Scorpio, Taurus-Libra and 2-12 bhakoot is lessened for Capricorn-Aquarius. There is no Grah Maitri dosha and Gana Dosha.
  2. Bhakoot dosha in Moon chart but cancellation in Navamsha (D9) as Navamsha chart is related to spouse.

Bhakoot is the 2nd most important Koot in Ashtkoot Guna Milan or Horoscope Matching and having Bhakoot Dosha can be bad as it strongly suggest problems on the marital front. However there are Puja remedies for Bhakoot dosha which can cancel Bhakoot Dosha and the native can lead a very happy and normal life.

    • Looking at your horoscope matching we see that you have 2-12 Bhakoot dosha. The Grahamaitri score is also very weak. Marriage should be considered only if Bhakoot dosha gets cancelled.

    The traditional system of matching using kundli milan takes too much of approximation in the position of planets and the matching report mostly are unreliable. Read my blog where there is a scientific method of matching horoscopes which is most reliable.

    • There is 6-8 maha bhakoot dosha which is never good. Marriage should be done only if Bhakoot dosha gets cancel. Also in the boys horoscope 7th lord Mars is with Rahu and in Girl horoscope Rahu is in the 7th house which is not auspicious and you should do grah milan before marrriage.
