How is Mars in Magha Nakshatra


Joachim Schneider, 11/11/2014

"If two people love each other, they should get married, even if they are not a match."

"Prashna Marga", classic text of Vedic astrology

In 5,000-year-old Vedic astrology, whether two people can have a fulfilling relationship largely depends on how relational they are and how well their moons are in harmony at the time of your birth. In Vedic astrology, a person's basic willingness to relate is explored in the individual horoscope and the harmony between two people by superimposing both horoscopes. This essay deals with the harmony of two horoscopes.

The moon is the mind

The moon is what most people call their "I". It is our attitude, what is good for us, what we are familiar with and what we find pleasant. It shows us how we react, our "taste", how sociable we are, whether we prefer to go to the mountains or the sea or what we like to eat. The moon shows the extent to which a person would like to exchange ideas or to bond with others. The natal moon also influences the life goals and life issues of a person, since the moon is used to calculate which planets are responsible for long-term phases of life, so-called "dasas".

If you live with someone or spend a lot of time with someone, it is important that your natal moons fit together so that you come into a common, natural flow. The more similar your wishes and ideas are, the fewer compromises you have to make and the more respect and love there is.

Partnership analysis in India

In India it is the rule that the harmony between two people is examined with the help of the Vedic horoscope before marriage. The many books on the subject deal mainly with about three dozen techniques that analyze the natal moons, although there is no consensus as to which of these techniques are the most important. What all approaches have in common is that they examine the "Janma Nakshatra", the star in which the moon is at the time of birth.

The Nakshatras represent a division of the sun's orbit into 27 equal parts of 13 degrees and 20 minutes each. They embody the power of the moon to make something grow and to realize it.

The approach presented here comes from Ernst Wilhelm, who in turn refers to B.V. Raman's book “Muhurta”, which summarizes the techniques that can be traced back to the Rishis Garga and Brighu.


In Vedic astrology there are 5 decisive criteria to determine how harmonious a partnership is based on the horoscopes of the participants: Disruptive for a partnership are (1) "Vedha", circumstances that prevent a partnership, (2) "Rajju" , Value conflicts and communication problems and (3) “Kuja Dosha”, the need to want to control the other. (4) “Strii Diirgha”, mutual respect and (5) “Ashta Kuta” to be on the same wavelength are beneficial for a partnership.

The icing on the cake for a partnership is “Mahendra”, a “soul community”, “Vasya” an inexplicable attraction for the other, or when the Nakshatras are of the same gender as the partners involved.

Obstacles - Vedha Dosha

When the nakshatras of the moons of two people do not match, it is called “Vedha”, which means “obstacle”. Vedha is considered to be the greatest relationship hurdle. “Vedha” occurs because the fate of two people does not match. Perhaps you would like to live like a millionaire in frenzy, but if this is not part of your destiny, you have "Vedha" with people who could give you such a lifestyle. With Vedha something always comes up, mostly external circumstances that prevent a relationship. You live too far away from each other, don't have a storm-free room, it just doesn't work in bed or your dream partner is already taken. Vedha is like an unattainable dream. In purely mathematical terms, Vedha appears in one of 27 pairs.

Entanglement - Rajju Dosha

Rajju, literally “rope” or “bad luck”, leads to the greatest problems in a partnership. "Rajju" is an entanglement with a person which, although you try everything to clear up a situation, leads to persistent and recurring misunderstandings and tensions. Rajju also creates an uncomfortable dependency and leads to an "up" and "down" of feelings.

Rajju arises when the nakshatras of two people refer to the same part of the body, the foot, hip, navel, neck or head. Rajju is likely to have one in five relationships.

If you're late to pick up your partner but they don't understand your apology and don't find your joke about it funny, you have one Foot entanglement. Any attempt at explanation or even humor only increase the inconsistencies.

At a Hip entanglement you have different values ​​about certain things, which in itself does not have to be a problem, but with Rajju you are decidedly against the point of view of your partner. For example, if a Saturday isn't a good day for you until you've achieved something and your partner is happy to be in bed all day, you will never be sympathetic to each other with a hip rajju. In relationships without hip rajju, there can also be different values, but those involved can easily live with the partner's other views.

At a Navel rajju those involved cannot work together, do not appreciate the artistic creativity of the other or find it difficult to raise children together.

A Neck rajju prevents you from getting in touch with someone. You can manage to address the person concerned and invite them to a joint venture, but if they do not respond to your suggestion, you will not think of anything else.

At a Head entanglement you cannot even invite the other person to a meeting. There is a lack of confidence and ideas on how to enter or deepen a relationship. Once you approach the person, you don't know how to get in touch with them.

Neck and head Rajjus prevent relationships from the start, which is why they are rare among people who have been in a partnership for a long time. Rajju is noticeable 2 weeks after first getting to know each other.

Cut the rope on one side

In a Rajju entanglement, it is recommended that the one who normally takes the initiative, in conventional relationships in the Vedic tradition, it is the man who ends the conversation unilaterally, even if the woman thinks the disagreement is by no means over. The man should indicate that he is still in the relationship by, for example, referring to the next meeting and saying “I have to go now. I love you. I'll call you tomorrow, as agreed, at 6 p.m. ”.

"Rajju can be balanced, but not resolved, if the couple (1) Strii Dirgha, respect for each other, 2) if the partner is perceived as pleasant (Tara), (3) if mutual understanding (Graha Maitra) and (4 ) a soul relationship, "Mahendra" exists.

Respect - Strii Diirgha

Do you feel annoyed or disturbed because your partner approaches you too late or too early? If you want something your partner doesn't want? Would you like to make yourself comfortable on the sofa and your partner really wants you to go to town with him now?

If a man takes the initiative at the right time and a woman is then also open to this, mutual respect grows, which in the Vedas was the most important thing in order to keep a relationship together. The Rishis believed that in the best of relationships, the man tends to take the initiative. As old-fashioned as this idea may be, it is often borne out by the realities of life for many people in relationships. Relationships in which the woman takes the initiative and the man is receptive to the initiative should work, but supposedly not give the same satisfaction, since they withhold the man's initiative and the woman its receptivity.

If a man pays respect to a woman with his initiative at the right time, this is called “Strii Diirgha”, literally, the “long woman”. Whether two people naturally have such a sense of time for each other that they enter into an exchange with the other at the right time and thereby respect the partner, they only notice after they have known each other for 6 months.

Strii Diirgha exists between two people when, counting clockwise on the solar orbit, there are more nakshatra between the woman's and man's lunar nakshatra than between the man's and woman's lunar nakshatra. In this case, his “way” to her is shorter than her way to him, which is why he takes the initiative in the relationship and not her. Conversely, if her lunar nakshatra is closer to his than hers, she wants something from him first than he wants from her. She then experiences him more as a "washcloth". Constantly waiting in vain for his initiatives, she feels neglected and feels like she has to do all the work to keep the relationship together. In this situation, the man again perceives her as a "pain in the ass" or "bitch" who is constantly nagging at him. Ideally, if the man's moon is about 14 nakshatras, one more than half of the 27 nakshatras from the woman's moon, then both can take turns taking the lead.

A missing Strii Diirgha can only be overcome if two people have more than 20 Ashta Kuta points and are swimming on the same wavelength. Without Strii Diirgha, a man should regularly, even if he does not feel the need to approach his partner, to make her feel that he is actively interested in the relationship.

To this day, Strii Diirgha is used in southern India to determine the respect that two people have for one another. In northern India, it is not measured how far apart the lunar nakshatras are from one another, but rather the signs of the zodiac in which the moons are located, which is, however, less accurate.

Ashta kutas - wavelength

If you are on the same wavelength with someone, you can get on with them effortlessly, regardless of whether you are considered a relationship artist or a grouch. The Astha Kutas, literally “8 heaps”, after Muhurta Cintamani, represent the following comparisons of the moons of two people to find out how similar they think: 1 point for the caste mentality (“Varna”), 2 points whether they like each other serve (“Vasya”), 3 points for how pleasant you think the other person (“Tara”), 4 points for the appropriate instinctive behavior (“yoni”), 5 points for friendliness (“graha maitra”), 6 points for the appropriate one Culture (“Gana”), 7 points for productivity (“Bha”) and 8 points for how balanced (“Nadi”) the relationship is.

Especially in northern India, Ashta Kuta, together with the question of whether Mars is in the 2nd house, is the main criterion for assessing the partnership harmony, whereby these 2 factors, according to Ernst Wilhelm, are far from sufficient to clarify whether two people are a good match.

Caste mentality (Varna) 1 point

“Varna” means caste. If the zodiac signs of two people in whom the moon is at the time of birth have the same caste temperament or the man belongs to a more selfless caste, this is favorable for a relationship and the couple receives a point. The Rishis believed that a man more selfish than his wife would hinder their spiritual development. The Brahmins are said to be the most disinterested, followed by the Kshatriyas, the Vaishyas, and then the Sudras. The reason for this is that the Sudra signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius, embody people who are furthest away from the consciousness of the origin due to their mentality. The Vaisyha signs Capricorn, Taurus and the prepubescent Virgo are a little closer to the origin consciousness than the human signs and the Kshatriya signs Leo, Aries and Sagittarius, all mammals, are even closer to the origin consciousness. The Brahmin signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, which personify simple aquatic animals, are closest to the origin consciousness. To fix the caste temperament of a person to the position of the moon alone would be too short-sighted, however. Rather, this depends on a person's calling, which can be determined with a Jaimini analysis. You can find more about caste in the article “What is your caste temperament?

"Happy to serve" (Vasya) - 2 points

You have vasya for someone if you willingly serve that person. You can feel intuitively whether and when this person needs help and encouragement. Vasya is when both moons belong to the same group of signs of the zodiac, if they are classified according to how many legs they have and what kind of creature they are. If both signs have Vasya for each other, the couple gets 2 points, if only one sign has Vasya for the other, the couple gets one point.

Aries, Taurus, the second half of Sagittarius, and the first half of Capricorn are four-legged friends. Gemini, Libra, the first half of Sagittarius, and Aquarius are bipeds. Cancer, the second half of the Capricorn that is under water and the fish are in the water and therefore have no feet. The lion is a wild animal and everyone serves the lion, just not the lion himself. As an insect, the scorpion is a polygonal.

All signs, with the exception of Scorpio, serve Leo. All four-legged friends, the water and insect signs serve the human signs. Watermarks are also food for human signs. Four-legged friends are food for the lion. The signs that are nourishment for another sign are only reluctant to serve this sign. For example, the Aries serves the Leo, but this only gives half a point because the Aries is reluctant to serve. In addition, in South India there are fewer points for Vasya if the woman is not Vasya to the man.

Wellbeing - Tara Kuta ( 3 points)

Do you find the other person, the way they say and the way they say it pleasant or does they make them insecure or even anger you? Tara means star. Your tare score is determined by the distance of your lunar nakshatra from the other person's lunar nakshatra and divided by 9. If the remainder is 0, 1, 2, 4, 6 or 8, this gives 3 points and you will find the other people comfortable. If the remainder is 3, 5 or 7, that is unfavorable and gives 0 points. Tara Kuta is also called Dina Kuta in northern India.

Instinctive behavior Yoni kuta (4 points)

How do you behave in a crisis if you don't see a choice, during intercourse or until you are 4 years old? A person's yoni, his instinct animal, literally the “source” or “sheath” reveals the instinctive nature of a person.

Each yoni represents an animal, with none of the animals being smarter or better than the other. A person's instinctive behavior should not be rated as he has no control over it.

Each of the 27 Nakshatras stands for either a male or a female representative of the following animals:

The strong, patient buffalo that runs over you

the clean, fussy, aloof and moody cat cleans the apartment (if she needs something she can be nice)

The faithful dog who hears everything and digs in, licks his wounds but does not give up on you,

The understanding, immobile elephant who remains seated and looks at something until he has understood it,

The fearful rabbit who seeks comfort and comfort and wants to avoid fear,

the mighty stallion who can panic

the proud, strong leadership, decent Leo who respects others

the self-absorbed rat who lies to save her life and hers Trick enemies

the playful, dawdling monkey who suppresses his problems,

the nimble weasel that becomes mean and aggressive,

the meek sheep that retreats behind its walls, eats all the grass today and lives in the moment,

The useful cowdividing their feed,

The cunning snake that transforms and hibernates

The ruthless, aggressive tiger who calculates in cold blood.

Not all animals go well with each other. It is best if the male partner's Nakshatra animal is male and that of the female partner is female, because otherwise there will be more tension. Females find it more difficult to act in crisis situations.The instinct is also supposed to embody the size of a human's sexual organs, which is why rats should have a little hard time with elephants.

Friendliness -Graha Maitram (5 points)

If the planets that rule the moons of two people are friends, this favors a relationship and gives 5 points. If the moons of humans are ruled by the same planet, there are 4 points. If the moon signs are also opposite each other, this is particularly favorable, since opposites attract each other. For example, the opposite signs Cancer and Capricorn are similar, even if their approach is different.

In this case there are also 5 points, even if the lunar rulers are enemies with each other, as with the Sun and Saturn or the Sun and Venus.

Culture Gana Kuta (6 points)

Each Nakshatra belongs to one of three “Ganas”, literally “races”, which means cultures. The “Devas” are the divine beings, the “Manushas” are the people and the “Rakshasas” are the demons. Devas are no better than manushas or rakshasas and the gana is not a question of character but of the everyday approach. Devas , named after “divine beings”, may even have been transferred to earth as a punishment or only reluctantly in this world. Others, in turn, become moral apostles of the existing order that they want to preserve. They are “do-gooders” and with their confidence can make an important contribution to the community. They expect others to believe in them. Devas live in the moment and are devoted, but sometimes do not do what is necessary or can appear superficial at times.

Manushas Also called "Nri" are practical people who want to build something and make the best possible out of their life. They believe that people are responsible for their own problems.

Rakshasas, Literally “demons” are not devils but human-like giants from the underworld as in Greek and Nordic mythology. The demon Pralad is described in the Bhagavad Gita as one of the most docile disciples of all time. Rakshasas live independently inside the earth. As eccentrics, a normal life is too boring for them. Unsatisfied by nature, hard times make them rebellious and drive them to overcome their weaknesses and stand up for themselves. Rakshasas can be dangerous, but also hero, because they are able to pull a cart out of the mud. Gandhi and Yogananda's moon nakshatra were rakshasas. In Yogananda's and Gandhi's Navamsha, the marriage and meaning of life horoscope, their planets are predominantly Manusha. In order to find out whether someone is a Deva, Manusha or Rakshasa, it is necessary to examine all planets in Navamsha in this regard.

When two people have the same gana, they are on a similar path in life, achieve more together and argue less. Manushas can also get along with devas or rakshasas because they are the most flexible and most value a long-term partnership. Rakshasa women definitely need a Rakshasa man who values ​​their qualities. Deva or Manusha men usually find Rakshasa women too rough.

Since Devas are more charitable than Manushas and Rakshasas, a Deva woman should have a Deva man as a partner, because the more selfish Manusha and Rakshasa men can otherwise slow them down in their spiritual development.

Productivity - Bha Kuta (7 points)

How many signs or "bha" the moons of two people stand apart can have a concrete effect on a relationship. 6 or 8 characters away leads to arguments and 2 or 12 characters away requires a great sacrifice to make a relationship possible. A distance of 5 or 9 characters means that everyone goes their own way, competes with their partner, has no children together, or leads to a student-teacher relationship. This may come as a surprise, since a space of 5 or 9 characters is generally considered to be something cheap. However, even in the individual horoscope, an emphasis on the Dharma signs 1, 5 and 9 goes hand in hand with independence. In some parts of India “Bha” is called “Rasi”.

Imbalance - Nadi (Max. 8 points)

The Rishis imagined the body as consisting of 80,000 “nadis”, literally “veins” through which information and energy flow. The nadi describes whether the nakshatra of the moon is “vata”, windy and changeable, “pitta”, fiery and focused, or “kapha”, watery and emotional.

If the nadis of the respective moons differ from each other, this balances the relationship and the couple receives the highest possible 8 points. This is the case for two out of three couples. However, if the nadis of two people are both windy, fiery, or watery, the relationship is unbalanced, which is detrimental to their health.

Windy Relationships in which both are nadis vata lack grounding, regular daily routines and meals. Insufficient sleep, getting up late, not exercising enough, and constipation occur. There is a lack of determination and moods determine the cooperation.

In fiery Relationships in which both are nadis pitta lead to impatience and conflicts, which in the worst cases can lead to stomach ulcers, heart attacks or accidents, especially in men.

Watery Relationships in which both are Nadis Kapha, are emotional and those involved don't want to change. They stick to habits and make themselves comfortable on the sofa for too long, are satisfied with an unsatisfactory situation and gain weight.

Windy and watery relationships are more harmful to women than men, as the moon, responsible for a woman's mind, is by nature watery and windy. When a relationship is windy, watery, or fiery, Ayurvedic treatment is recommended.

Astha Kuta overall scores

If you have a total of 20 or more Ashta Kuta points, they are on the same wavelength and get along blindly with your partner. They like the same food, have the same interests, and when you are together they give each other energy. 17-20 is average but not enough without the respect of Strii Dirgha. When two people have less than 17 points, the relationship is stressful because different interests require a lot of willingness to compromise. You have to do everything twice, watch two different films, prepare two types of food, or one dominates the other. All of this can keep you awake and even require separate bedrooms.

15 or less Ashta Kuta points are comparable to a relationship without “Strii Diirgha”. Low scores only become noticeable over time. Before entering into a long-term partnership with someone, spend a lot of time with someone you have low Kuta scores with and wonder how you are feeling.

If your partnership has no Vedha or Rajju but Stri Dirgha and Mahendra, a relationship with 5 Ashta Kuta points can work.

Assertiveness - Kuja Dosha

When a woman registers on an Indian dating site, it can happen to her that, whether she wants to or not, it is publicly noted whether she has “Kuja Dosha”. Kuja Dosha, literally "born out of the earth" or "Mangalik", "cheap", as they say in North or West India, refers to Mars and is one of the 5 most important factors in Vedic astrology that helps you achieve harmony affect other people. In the dark Middle Ages, Kuja Dosha was made the overriding exclusion criterion for a relationship. According to one superstition, Kuja Dosha is said to lead to "a woman killing her husband". Even today, women who allegedly have Kuja Dosha are branded and often no longer find a husband in India.

The famous Indian astrologer B.V. Raman pointed out in his book “Muhurta” that the original meaning of Kuja Dosha was falsified in the Middle Ages. Kuja Dosha actually describes the assertiveness and strength of character of Mars in the horoscope. The house in which Mars is located determines in which area of ​​life a person wants to assert himself. The traditionally widespread opinion in India is that Kuja Dosha is formed when Mars is in the 1st house and he controls people. In fact, Mars only develops a self-assertive will in the 1st house. How assertive a person is is determined by how often Mars is in the natal chart, Navamsha and Trimsamsha in the 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th house point of the ascendant and the corresponding houses of the moon and Venus. If Mars is in the 2nd, a person wants to assert himself against his family and friends, in the 4th at home, in the 7th against his partner, in the 8th against the partner's family and in the 12th in bed.

A relationship is most harmonious when Mars is represented equally often in these two horoscopes. If Mars appears there in the horoscope at least twice as often as in the horoscope of the partner, the person has Kuja Dosha towards the partner. This person is then much more assertive than his partner and is frustrated. He does not feel that he is being taken seriously and everything is going too slowly for him. The distressed partner can no longer hear the constant "grumbling", cannot understand the "unnecessary hectic" and feels pushed around. If the partner does not feel respected ("Strii Dirgha") and especially if the woman is more assertive than the man, this makes the relationship more difficult. additionally.

Assertiveness according to Jaimini

In addition to Kuja Dosha, a person's will to assert himself can also be determined according to Jaimini with reference to the Atma Karaka, the soul creator and what kind of favorite weapon a person uses.

The assertiveness of a person can also be seen in how many cruel planets a person has in the 3rd and 6th signs of Atma Karaka in the natal chart, in the Navamsa, the marriage and life meaning horoscope and in the Drekkana, the team skills horoscope. Cruel grahas in these signs make you "strong and brave" and make a good athlete or farmer. Gentle grahas in these signs make "cowardly and easily discouraged" sensitive, fearful, easily influenced and weak but also nice.

Favorite weapon

Which weapon a person uses in emergency situations gives insights into how he deals with conflicts. According to Jaimini, the strongest planet that is in the same sign as the Atma Karaka in the natal chart or Navamsa or the Atma Karaka itself determines which weapon a person uses in an emergency. The sun draws the sword to honorably fight the enemy in a fight of equal value. She would never mess with anyone weaker. It speaks the truth and only points out wrongdoing. The moon, Jupiter and Venus are innocent bystanders in a war. They do not take up arms and, when unlucky, are slaughtered by others. Ketu does not use a weapon either, but lets "time" pass by, withdraws peacefully and patiently and waits until something has grown over the grass. For Mars, the end justifies the means and only victory counts, even if it is fought with brutal or unfair means. Mars uses a spear because it has a longer reach than the sword. Mercury either has no weapon or only a wooden stick for self-defense. Saturn retreats and uses a bow and arrow, or nowadays drones or snipers, to precisely take out its opponent from a safe distance. Saturn is also notorious in relationships for its poison arrows. Rahu uses an overwhelming number of arguments or weapons of mass destruction to prevent resistance from occurring in the first place.

The same lunar nakshatra

When both persons have the same lunar nakshatra, the many lunar nakshatra-related comparisons fall away. Strii Diirgha can then only be compared by the longitude number of the moon, whereby that of the man should be lower than that of the woman. The common lunar nakshatra affects the quality of the relationship as follows.

When both partners have the same lunar nakshatra

Rohini, Ardra, Magha, Hasta, Vishaka, Sravana, Uttarabhadapada, RevatiNo problem
Ashvini, Krititka, Mrigashira, Punarvasu, Pushya, Purva Phalguni, Uttara Phalguni, Chitra, Anuradha, Purva Ashada, Uttara AshadaDifficult relationship as nakshatras are eccentric and intense
Bharani, Aslesha, Svati, Jyestha, Mula, Dhanishta, Shatabishak or Purva BhadrapadaRelationship is not recommended, makes people dissatisfied and eccentric
Revati, Aswini, Bharani, Kritika, Rohini MrighashiraThe woman especially likes the man because he is so productive
Ardra, Punarvasu, Pushyami, Aslesha, Magha, Purva Phalguni, Uttara Phalguni, Chitra, Svati, Vishaka, AnuradhaMutual appreciation
Jyestha, Mula, Purva Ashada, Uttara Ashasda, Sravana, Dhanistha Shatabishak, Purva Bhadrapada, Uttara BhadrapadaThe man likes the woman's devotion

Sense of common ground ("Mahendra")

Literally “great God”, coming from “Maha“ Indra ”, Mahendra is a soul connection, a special friendship and closeness, which can give a partnership a lifelong common meaning. Even if a relationship has arisen through an unwanted pregnancy or out of compulsion, two people with Mahendra see a reason to be together even after many years, as long as they are reasonably compatible.

Mahendra has a relationship when the man's nakshatra is 4, 7, 10, 13, 16, 19, 22 or 25 nakshatra from that of the woman. Even if you have such a soul connection with a person, a binding partnership is not recommended if other criteria do not indicate a harmonious relationship, as in the case of Mahendra you will find it difficult to separate from each other. Without Mahendra, however, you need good reasons to have a long-term relationship.

Attraction - Vasya

Certain signs of the zodiac are said to be almost magically attracted to each other, which means "Vasya". This Vasya should not be confused with the already mentioned “Vasya”, the willingness to “serve” the other. With the vasya of attraction, the person believes in a relationship, even if it has not worked so far. With Mond-Vasya one would like to support the other actively and morally, cook something for him, be there for him or nurse him up. With Venus Vasya you want to spend romantic hours with someone.

Magnetic attraction and receptivity

Arieshas an attractive effectLeo, Scorpio
bullhas an attractive effectCancer and Libra
twinhas an attractive effectVirgin
cancerhas an attractive effectScorpio, Sagittarius
lionhas an attractive effectLibra
Virginhas an attractive effectPisces and Gemini
Librahas an attractive effectCapricorn, Virgo
Scorpiohas an attractive effectcancer
Sagittariushas an attractive effectfishes
Capricornhas an attractive effectAries, Aquarius
Aquariushas an attractive effectAries
fisheshas an attractive effectCapricorn

If the man's moon sign is magnetically attracted to the woman's, that gives 2 points. If the woman's rasi is attracted to that of the man, this is only 1 point. The Rishis believed that it is better for the man to find the woman attractive as it helps him bond more closely with the woman. When a person has Vasya for someone, it is difficult for him to get away from him.

Gender of the Nakshatra

If the man's nakshatra is masculine and the woman's feminine, this strengthens the relationship, but it plays a subordinate role compared to the topics discussed so far. If both nakshatras are neutral, it has no effect. If both are female, the couple lacks the initiative for joint ventures. It is unfavorable if the woman's Nakshatra is male and the man’s female or neutral, or if both Nakshatras are male, because then quarrels can arise.

Synastry- The superimposition of two horoscopes

If you put two charts on top of each other to see how one person's planets affect those of the other, this method is called "synastry". How the horoscopes of two people look when put together does not determine the harmony in the partnership, but shows which topics are emphasized in the relationship.

Rahu and Ketu

When superimposing two horoscopes, the planets that fall on Rahu or Ketu are the most important. Rahu shows where a person can grow in this life. Ketu shows what man should complete. The house points with which Rahu and Ketu are connected are more important than the signs.

The influence of the planets that fall on Rahu is increasing, while the influence of the planets that fall on Ketu is waning. Therefore, in a relationship that is to make your life more comfortable, your partner's gentle planets must fall on your Rahu and his cruel planets on your Ketu. When the gentle planets Venus, Jupiter or Mercury fall on Rahu, the relationship becomes more pleasant.On the other hand, when the waning moon falls on Rahu, a relationship becomes more and more capricious.


When the Moon, the Ascendant, the Ascendant Ruler, or Venus face each other, there is a spiritual or physical attraction. The moon brings closeness to the soul, the ascendant or ascendant ruler physical attraction. When the moon falls on the partner's Saturn, this leads to deprivation.

When Rahu falls on the partner's moon, its ascendant or ascendant ruler, the person feels attracted to the partner. When the ascendant falls on cruel planets or the ascendant ruler is cruel, the attraction can be painful.

If the moon is waning, the attraction will not grow. If Rahu falls on Mercury, it brings with it similar interests, on Mars concrete problems, on Saturn hardship, on the sun self-confidence and admiration but also disappointment because the sun is a loner. When your Rahu falls on his sun, this activates his willingness to take initiative, which in the sense of the Rishis has a positive effect on the relationship. It is best if the Sun, Mars or Saturn do not fall on Rahu, as this can lead to anger and frustration.

Since Ketu wants to end something, sooner or later it is disappointing when gentle planets or the ascendant fall on Ketu, because then the magic of the relationship is lost over time. When the moon, ascendant, or ascendant ruler falls on Ketu, it only feels like a soul relationship for a short time.

The man's sun on the woman's ketu therefore only feels good to the woman at the beginning. Conversely, when the man's waning moon falls on the woman's ketu, difficulties dissolve over time.

How well do the other planets fit together?

The harmony of the natal moons of two people is the basis for a partnership. Even if other planets fit together, the commonality is only as good as it appears between the two moons. For example, if the moons of two people do not go together, but Venus does, then two people will not get along well but will flirt with each other.

That is why the moon should be compared first of all for business partners, parents, children and friends, and for close, romantic relationships the Ascendant and other planets as well. The moon and the ascendant are the basis for an intimate relationship, Venus and Mercury for the fun things in life. Sun and Jupiter for common ideals and values.

The planets that have no obstacles (Vedha) or entanglements (Rajju), that have respect (Strii Dirgha) for each other and are on the same wavelength (Ashta Kuta), determine the relationship issues because this is where the energy between the two people is best can flow. If planets do not match, this leads to frustration in the areas concerned. If, despite the harmony between two planets, there are problems in the areas that affect this planet, these are due to challenges in the individual horoscope.


The ascendant and its ruler determine what we do and how we do every day. When the ascendant and ascendant rulers harmonize with each other, two people have a lot in common in the way they organize their everyday lives. The ascendant is the second most important comparison factor after the moon. The ascendant also represents the human body and influences how physically two people find each other. When two ascendants are not a match, they need more distance from each other. Rajju in the ascendant suggests that the woman does not like the way the man goes about his daily life. Maybe she complains about him or thinks he's irresponsible. Ascendant Vedha leads to obstacles that prevent everyday coexistence.


You can tell whether you have similar ideals and professional goals for how well you work with someone by the extent to which your suns harmonize with one another. If you want to find out which politicians represent your interests best, compare your horoscope with that of a politician. The sun is also responsible for how satisfied a man is with his life.


Mercury shows how well you can talk to each other and listen to someone, whether you have similar interests and hobbies, whether someone can be your good friend, business partner or lawyer. When Mercury is a match, they can talk about your problems with the partner. If not, it is better to solve problems about the planets that are more in agreement in your relationship horoscope. For example, if you have better Venus harmony, it is recommended that you solve problems in a romantic way rather than through conversation.

If the lunar harmony and thus the natural flow is unfavorable in the relationship, a Mercury harmony can make up for this if necessary, as Mercury can adapt to the flow of the other. Without Mercury harmony, people in a relationship have bad memories. They may or may not want to memorize the things a partner tells them. In this case, remind the partner in writing.

Mercury harmony can create long-term solutions such as healthier diets.


Whether you have the same taste in terms of entertainment, films, vacation or home furnishings, whether someone is the right interior designer, dance partner or masseur for you, even how well you can flirt with each other, spend your romantic hours and shape the sexual foreplay, depends on how your venuses harmonize with each other.


How well you harmonize with each other during fitness training, building a house together, house ownership, dealing with everyday challenges, in an adventure or during sexual intercourse, and whether someone is the right dentist, surgeon or tennis partner, shows the harmony of the two Marse. If the Marseilles don't go well together, you will get upset about your partner's reaction when you have a flat car or when you experience other everyday problems. A couple with a Mars Neck Rajju can have trouble having intercourse, perhaps because one partner does something that unexpectedly takes the other's mood away.


Whether you have the same views on money or raising children, whether someone suits you as a student or teacher, and whether you prefer the same guru or meditation style, shows the harmony of your Jupiter. Do you read the same spiritual books, have the same philosophy, do the same topics, or perhaps have the same guru? In a Jupiter Rajju, you don't meditate together.


The Harmony of Saturne determines how you jointly deal with longer-term challenges and situations over which you have no control, such as the death of a loved one or a chronic illness.

Your understanding of the weaknesses of the other, whether someone suits you as a doctor or nurse in long-term treatment, is also seen on the basis of the Saturn agreement. If Mars and Saturn are the planets that are the best match, the relationship revolves around work and everything that is exhausting in everyday life.

Call it quits?

Just because your planets are mismatched doesn't mean you should end a relationship. Relationships between people who do not really harmonize with one another also make sense. Most people don't take the advice to end a relationship anyway. Some subconsciously prefer relationships with partners that are not so harmonious. Perhaps they find these relationships more interesting, it is their fate, they are not used to better treatment or they “need” a stressful relationship first in order to be ready for a harmonious one.
