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.

    • 2-12 Bhakoot Dosha is formed with Scorpio and Libra. This is not auspicious to have Bhakoot Score as 0 out of 7. Indicates Health problems and also financial problems in the couples life. You need to check if Bhakoot dosha gets cancelled and that is possible by checking both horoscopes in detail. If Bhakoot gets cancelled then marriage can be considered else marriage is not recommended.

    • Oleg, please note that although 27 points as per Guna milan is a good Score, because we have maximum as 36 and minimum required for marriage is 18. Therefore 27 is good. But Bhakoot 0 score is not good at all. There are three types of Bhakoot. You have not shared which Bhakoot Dosha you have, however Bhakoot dosha is very important and that is why it has high score of 7, only Nadi with 8 points is higher than Bhakoot. Therefore you can imagine how important Nadi is. Regarding mangal dosha, again Mangal dosha is when Mars is in the lagan, 4th, 7th , 8th and 12th house. All these placements have difference impact on marriage and relationship. If you want a details analysis of these dosha and also want to know if they get cancelled and analysis of the Marriage chart, you can always look at my Paid analysis from above.

    Please help.


    • There is a 9-5 bhakoot dosha, the Girl rashi is Taurus and the boy rashi is Virgo. There is also Gana dosha which is not good. The gana dosha is formed as the girl belongs to the Rakshasa Gana and the boy belongs to Manushya Gana. Marriage should only be considered if Gana and Bhakoot dosha gets cancelled.


      Navneet Khanna

      • Hi Navneet Sir,

        ***In response to your reply***October 23, 2016 at 4:14 pm

        Thanks Sir for your quick response but just to update my Gana is Dev Gana.
        Requesting you to please reconsider and check if we can become a married couple.

        and also please let me know what is meant by “Marriage should only be considered if Gana and Bhakoot dosha gets cancelled” ?

        Does it mean cancelled by remedy or by marrying a girl with whom the Dosha will not be there.

        Please help Sir, i would be really grateful to you.


        • I stand corrected your is Dev Gana and the Girl is Rakshasa Gana that is why there is Gana dosha. What I mean is that marriage should be done if Bhakoot and Gana dosha get cancelled. There are astrological principles under which these dosha get cancelled. We need to check if your your horoscope matching falls under those principles , if they do that would mean that the bad effects of Gana dosha and Bhakoot dosha would not be felt and marriage can certainly be considered. I hope you understand now. Please Visit my Astrology Forum for Further Horoscope analysis and consultation.

    • You have what is known as a 5-9 bhakoot dosha. Bhakoot is the second most important Koota in Ashtkoot Guna milan and its importance in Horoscope matching can not be ignored. The boy has strong Mangal dosha, which is also not good for marriage. Marriage should only be considered if Bhakoot dosha gets cancelled. You can always take a detailed consultation for effects, remedies and solution related to these doshas from paid services. You can look at “Horoscope Matching Kundli milan ” from below

    • What you have is a 5-9 Bhakoot dosha. The Boy is born under the Hasta Nakshatra and Girl is born under the Uttarashadha Nakshatra. Marriage should be done only if the bhakoot dosha gets cancelled.


      Navneet Khanna

  19. Boy is Libra and Girl is Aquarius. How is the match?

    • This is a 5-9 Bhakoot dosha. Bhakoot dosha is never good in Horoscope matching. 5-9 Bhakoot dosha brings health and relationship problems. Marriage should be done if Bhakoot dosha gets cancelled and other factors in the Horoscope are strong.
