Marriage is a very important and pious tie in our Hindu belief. When two people decide to stay together or guardians of two individuals decides to make a pair with two persons, one male and one female, we term it marriage. And we, Hindus, are having a very strong belief that match between two people are made in heaven by the consent of Almighty God. While performing the rituals we invite Lord Vishnu and lit sacred fire to make the bond between two individuals everlasting and most auspicious happening in their lives.
But, spending the rest of their life together with someone less known, or sometimes unknown, is not a very easy task for the both of the partners involved in a marital tie. In India, Vedic Astrology has a very useful and trustworthy tool to examine the possibility of compatibility between two individuals, which is called Match Making. Even in Western Astrology compatibility between two Sun Signs are very popular to determine the extent of durability of a nuptial tie.
In our Vedic Astrology, Moon signs are divided into four basic categories, namely, Fiery, Earthy, Airy and Watery signs. People born under Fiery sign are prone to get angry quickly, having too much amount of energy within themselves. Individuals are born with Earthy signs are down to earth, slow in action, have long term plans in their life. Airy signs are talented, quick in thinking, impatient and restless by nature. Watery signs have the quality to think deeply and affectionate, emotional by nature. So, out of our twelve zodiac signs we have three fiery signs, three earthy signs, three airy signs and three watery signs. Namely, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius signs are considered as fiery signs. Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn signs are known as earthy signs. Gemini, Libra and Aquarius signs are of airy qualities and rest three signs, Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are signs with watery tendencies.
These qualities are very much important for match making to judge the longevity of a marital relation. There are some other factors also present there in horoscopes, which indicates separation from husband or wife and less happiness in married life. So, while finalising a match for marriage, nature, appearances and qualities of both the individuals are very important, according to our Indian system of Vedic Astrology. For example, if a fiery sign male is married to an airy girl then possibility is there to generate less happiness from that marriage because presence of air ignites the fire. In that case a watery sign girl will remain best suitable for a fiery guy, who will balance the nature between the two to keep the marital knot intact.
Position of planet Mars in certain houses in a horoscope is very much important to consider a match for marriage in our Indian system of Astrology. Mars is a fiery planet and is considered as a separating factor in one’s married life. In traditional terms it is called ‘Maanglik Dosha’. If the match gets sufficient points in match making and one horoscope is affected by Maanglik Dosha, the match should be avoided for marriage.
