Guna Milan - AshtaKoota for marriage
Here, the mutual disposition of the natal Moon signs of the couple is considered. When the Moon signs of the couple happen to fall mutually in positions 2/12, 6/8 or 5/9, no gunas are earned. Under other situations, seven points are allotted. Table below indicates the bhakoota-gunas for various combinations of the Moon signs of the couple.
While considering bhakoota gunas, a few points need to be takne note of. There are as follows.
- 6/8 position: The sixth rashi from an odd sign and the eighth from an even sign form malefic mutual 6/8 positions since the lords of such signs are mutually hostile. On the other hand, the sixth rashi from an even sign and the eighth from an odd sign form favourable mutual 6/8 positions since the lords of such signs are mutually not hostile but friendly. A favourable 6/8 disposition of the Moon signs of the couple is not too bad.
- An adverse 6/8 position is supposed to lead to death of a marital partner. A mutual 2/12 position of the Moon signs of the couple leads to penury while a mutual 5/9 disposition causes childlessness.
- When the two marital partners have the same moon sign in their natal charts, it is considered favourable provided that the nakshatras of the two Moons are different.
- When the rashi lords of the two Moons in mutual 2/12 positions are friendly, the blemish of the 2/12 disposition is greatly diminished. It is further desirable to have the bride's Moon sign identical with the 12th house of the groom's Moon instead of vice versa.
