In Vedic astrology, Kundali Milan or Horoscope Matching for Marriage is based on eight parameters also known as Koot:

  2. Vashya refers to the intensity of mutual attraction and affection. It carries two marks.
  3. Tara refers to the health and well being of the couple. It carries three marks.
  4. Yoni refers to biological compatibility and satisfaction. It carries four marks.
  5. Graha Maitri refers to oulook, objective, intellectual level and spiritual plane of existence. It carries five marks.
  6. Gana refers to temperamental characteristics. It carries six marks.
  7. Bhakut / Bhakoot refers to Love/ family welfare. It carries seven marks.
  8. Nadi refers to progeny and self health. It carries eight marks.

The eight parameters together carry 36 marks, or gunas as they are called in astrological terms. When the two horoscopes are compared, a minimum of 18 gunas is necessary for a match to be declared compatible. The more the gunas scored, the better the outlook. Sometimes the horoscopes may predict total incompatibility, this can be if there is complete incompatibility and also the birth chart of any one person is incorrect. Therefore before getting the Horoscope Matching or Kundali milan done, it is important to check if the Horoscopes are correct.

With computerization in every field of life, the matching of horoscopes can now also be done on the computer if the software is available. However traditionally it has been done through Panchang and it is still the preferred way to make sure there are no errors. In most cases, the matching is satisfactory except when there are doshas. However, when in doubt, particularly if one of the persons has a malefic Mangal or any other malefic dosha like Bhakoot or Nadi Dosha, it is advisable to consult a person who specializes in Astrology to make sure the dosha get cancelled.

Many times we see that there are dosha or severe incompatibility in the Horoscope Matching for marriage/ Kundali Milan. It is important to check if the Doshas get cancel or not before getting married. If you get married without doing any remedies/ puja then marital problems will come. However you should do the remedies of the doshas and also do a Grah Milan, which is matching of the planets in the horoscope. Grah Milan is more accurate for judging marital happiness in a couple life.

Ashtkoot Guna Milan is checked from the Moon and Birth Nakshatra. Whereas  Horoscope has total 9 planets including Venus, Jupiter which are the karka or the significator of marriage, wife and husband. Venus is the karka for marriage and wife in a boys horoscope, where as Jupiter is the karka for Husband in a girls horoscope. It is equally important to see if the Venus, Jupiter and 7th house lord are strong and uninflected.
