Solar sign based compatibility – Why is it a big No in Vedic astrology? Part IV

The next consideration in the assessment of compatibility is Bhakoot which looks at the mutual placement of two Ascendants. If the two partners have ascendants that fall 6-8, 5-9, or 2-12 to each other, the relationship suffers on various counts. 6-8 relationship, especially when it occurs between signs, like Aries and Virgo, Libra and Pisces etc. causes health related issues to both partners and their parents.

There are however some exceptions to this rule. If the two signs are ruled by the same planet, the problem gets canceled. Thus Aries-Scorpio, Taurus-Libra pairs do not suffer from 6-8 placement rule. If the lords of the two signs are friendly, then too the problem is removed. Thus Cancer-Sagittarius, Gemini-Capricorn and Leo-Pisces become acceptable.

In western astrology signs which fall 5-9 to each other like Aries and Sagittarius, Taurus and Capricorn etc. are considered very harmonious. Hindu astrology takes a dim view of this, as couples with this grouping suffer from children related problems.

In certain conditions this defect gets eliminated. If the female Ascendant is the fifth from the male, and male Ascendant is ninth from that of female, the Dosh is removed. This however does not apply to Cancer-Pisces, Cancer-Scorpio, Gemini-Aquarius and Virgo-Capricorn.

Ascendant signs falling 2-12 to each other bring about financial difficulties to the couple.

Nadi is the eighth and last parameter to measure the extent of compatibility. It refers to the three Nadi or energy channels in the human body. These are known as Adi, Madhya and Antya Nadi. For the two partners to have the same Nadi is considered unfavorable. If both partners have Adi Nadi, there is separation after marriage. A similar situation in which both have Madhya Nadi causes financial losses. Antya Nadi for both partners causes death or death like suffering for one or the partners.

amongst all the factors mentioned above, Nadi compatibility gets the highest number of eight points.  If there is a mismatch in this category, the relationship or marriage should be ruled out even if there is a good matching in other areas.

In the next Blog we shall consider some exceptions to this rule.
