Ancient Marriage Compatibility
There are ten “Considerations” necessary to the forming of a correct judgment as to the suitability of a proposed matrimonial union. These are 1. Dhinam, 2. Ganam, 3. Mahendhram, 4. Stree-Dheergham, 5. Yoni, 6. Rasi, 7. Rasyadhipati, 8. Vasyam, 9. Rajju, and 10. Vedhai.
1. Dhina-Count the asterisms from the asterism of the bride to that of the bridegroom (both inclusive).
The first, viz, the asterism at birth, is “Janma”; the 2nd asterism signifies “Sampat”-fortune; the 3rd denotes “Vipat”-disaster; the 4th favours “Kshema”-well-being; the 5th produces “Pratyara”-obstruction; the 6th shows “Sadhaka”-aid; the 7th inclines to “Vadham”-slaughter; the 8th tends to “Mitra”-friendship; the 9th leads to “Parama-Mitra” intimate friendship. The asterism of the bridegroom should be the 2nd, 4th, 6th, or 8th from that of the bride. If it be the 3rd, the 5th, or the 7th, it shows disagreement. Of the second Pariyaya the 1st quarter of the 3rd, the 4th quarter of the 5th, and the 3rd quarter of the 7th asterism should be avoided. The other quarters of these asterisms are good. The asterisms of the 3rd “Pariyaya” produce no evil.
The asterism of the bridegroom should not be the 27th, or order from that of the bride. The adverse effects arising from such a position will, however, be diminished of the two asterisms belong to the same sign. If the asterisms belong to different signs the effect will be bad.
Another asterism to be avoided is the 22nd, counting from Janma-Nakshatra of either. This position of asterism is described as “Vadha-vainasika” the evil effects of which are set forth by Sage Kasyapa.
A man and a woman born under any of the following pairs of asterisms will form an unsuitable match and their union will be unhappy: Krittika and Aslesha; Aslesha and Swati; Chitra and Purvasadha; Anuradha and Sravishta; Sravishta and Bharani; Satabisha and Krittika.
