Why use Vedic Astrology as the basis for Relationship Assessment?
(Watch out for my Blog giving a fuller description of the evaluation facets of Vedic Love Astrology shortly). Vedic Astrology is the astrology of India. Please note that I am not impressed by western astrology’s relationships reports (Synastry) for the following reasons:
1. western astrology is Sun-sign based, and it is the Moons of the couple that should be used for relationships comparison because the Moon is our emptions, and that is the proper basis for relationship comparison. The Sun is our egoic or business self, and is not the prime issue in relationships.
2. The tropical zodiac of western astrology uses as its basis the position of the Sun on the first day of spring (Vernal Equinox) which moves a degree every 72years against the backdrop of the fixed stars (precession of the equinoxes), and thus the tropical/western zodiac is sun-sign-based and thus, because the Sun depicts our ‘egos’, it is egoic. So it is good for psychological astrology (when expertly interpreted, but not to be used for the eternal truths of our incarnation. The Sidereal Zodiac of Vedic Astrology is anchored to a fixed star, thus anchored to the eternal, thus it depicts a sure statement of our incarnational life purpose and of our (fixed and non-fixed) karmas. It thus surely declares our reason for being here and the circumstances we will attract at birth and at predictable unfoldment dates, to work on that purpose. Thus the sidereal zodiac of Vedic Astrology is the sure zodiac to use for relationship calculation and assessment.
3. Vedic Astrology provides a sure and quantified statement of the relationship issues. Western Astrology of Relationships (Synastry) on the other hand, provides very confusing endless lists of inter-aspects analysis, with no capability for overall assessment or statement.
4. The basis of the Vedic Astrology of Relationships is the 27-sign lunar zodiac of Vedic Astrology: the Nakshatras. Vedic Astrology does also, of course, use its 12-sign Solar Zodiac, but the Nakshatras are very powerful ancient wisdom. They are magical and non-linear, with a power animal and ruling deity for each of the 27-signs, and very sophisticated parameters of comparison anciently worked out between the Nakshatras.
5. It is useful, however, to add a glance at western astrology, because modern westerners are psychological beings, and thus the psychologising capability of (expert) western astrology is needed to be taken into account, particularly in the dimensions offered to that by the outer planets not present in Vedic Astrology, namely: Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and Chiron.
6. It has to be taken into account that Western Astrology has been damaged in that it has been hi-jacked by spiritual pundits and used as a coat-hook to hand their particular spiritual systems on, whether it be Angels or Ascension or unworkable use of the western tropical zodiac to give statements of incarnational life purpose. But it also has to be taken into account that much Vedic Astrology is still too caught up in Hindu cultural contexts of understanding, which need to usefully be re-stated to encompass a wider perspective of personal and social understanding.
What are the factors used in the Vedic Astrology of Relationships?
The ‘kuta’ or ‘Ashta Kuta’ relationship points system is a powerful and unique feature of Vedic astrology. It shows the level of a couple’s compatibility. This point system mathematically calculates and then compares the personal traits of each person’s Moon in terms of the Moon’s Lunar Sign or Nakshatra in their Vedic Birth Chart.
Here is the system in summary:
A. RESPECT – Will there be respect between the couple? (Strii Diirgha).
B. WAVELENGTH – we assess eight facets of the relationship to determine Wavelength. These are scored out of an overall maximum possible score of 36 points. Below 18 points and the relationship could be unviable. The eight facets are:
1. Excess (Nadi or ‘Humour’, <8 points) Is there an imbalance between them in the three principles: Kapha, Pitta and Vata?
2. Constructivism (Bha or Bhava, <7 points) Can the couple create well together and be constructive together?
3. Temperament (Gana, <6 points) We determine the affinity of two people’s temperaments
4. Friendliness (Graha Maitram, <5 points) Will they be friends?
5. Instinctive Compatibility (Yoni, <4 points) Are the two people’s instinctive patterns compatible, generally and sexually?
6. Comfort (Tara or Dina, <3 points) Will the man’s temperament will feel cherishing, comfortable and safe to the woman?
7. Special Inner Connection (Vasya, <2 points) Will they innately give to each other? Will they be properly dutiful?
8. Mutation: Positive Change (Varna, <1 point) Does the relationship have an innate ability to bring about positive changes?
C. THE TWO DETRIMENTS (The Great Blemishes’ – The Doshas)
1. Obstruction (Veda) Are they a forbidden combination?
2. Misfortune (Rajju) Are they roped to misfortune?
D. THE TWO BENEFICIAL SUPPLEMENTS (The Upaskaras)
1. Shared Sense of Purpose (Mahendra) Do they have the needed joint sense of purpose?
2. Magnetic Attraction (Vasya) Is the man magnetically attracted to the woman? Is the woman magnetically attracted to the man? Is there mutual magnetic attraction, or none, or is it just one-way?
E. ASSERTIVE PRESSURE (Mars problems – Kuja Dosha)
Do the man and the woman assert with roughly equal force? If one partner asserts a lot more forcefully, the other will feel unheard and will be crushed.
