Analysis through Vedic Astrology, Jyotish

ASTROLOGY / JYOTISH
This is an example lesson
advanced course Applied Vedic Astrology. For more information click
In traditional Vedic society one of the most important uses of
astrology is to evaluate whether the charts of people who are planning
to get married are
in agreement to each other.
This is a subject about which a lot of confusion exists. Some
traditional astrologers mainly look at the Kutas agreement. At first
sight, this seems to
be an extensive system, but in fact it is only based on how well the
Nakshatra in which
the Moon of one partner is placed fits with the Moon Nakshatra of the
other partner. We
will deal with this system later. However just looking at the Kutas
agreement of the Moon
is quite limited.
What sometimes happens is that some people have a hard time
married because there are indications in their chart that marriage will
be difficult. I do
not think that making it diffficult for people from fullfilling what
may be their heart
desires is a good use of astrology.
Another approach is that if someone has afflictions in the
look for another person who has the same afflictions. The idea is that
if two people who
have the same affliction in their chart get married, the affliction
will be neutralized
and the karma that has to do with the affliction will have to be faced
in a future
I may have an unconventional opinion about this, but I rather
my karma during this lifetime than saving my (bad) karma and probably
number of times that I have to return to this earth .
I also have doubts whether this method of ‘cancelling the
affliction’ really works.
1. KUJA DOSHA
One very well known affliction commonly ‘solved’ this way
is the Kuja Dosha affliction.
This affliction has to do with certain positions of Mars that
thought to be problematic for married life.
There is Kuja Dosha in the chart if:
- Mars is placed in the first house, but not in Aries.
- Mars is in the fourth house, but not in Scorpio.
- Mars is in the seventh house, but not in Capricorn or
- Mars is in the eighth house, but not in Cancer.
- Mars is in the twelfth house, but not in Sagittarius.
The reasoning behind this is that Mars is a malefic and if
positioned in the above houses it will damage the houses of marriage
family life (the second house), the home environment (the fourth), the
marital tie (eighth
house) and/or sexual pleasure (twelfth house) either by being in these
houses or aspecting
The logic behind the exceptions is not always clear.
According to quite a number of astrologers, there is also Kuja
in a chart if Mars is located in the 1,2,4,7,8 and 12 from the Moon and
even if Mars is
located in these houses from Venus.
Especially if we look for Kuja Dosha not only from the
but also from Mars and Venus we may well find this affliction in
something like 80% of the
I think it is useful to be aware that Mars in certain
damage relationships. However, this is just one factor among many.
Probably Saturn in the
above houses also causes damage. And for relationships we do not only
have to look at the
Rashi but also at the navamsa.
I do not think if we see Kuja Dosha in a chart, it is useful
the alarm. Especially since it occurs in most charts.
Another factor, which is looked upon, is the longvity of the
partners. The reasoning is that if one of the partners will have a
short life a marriage
is not very useful. If an astrologer thinks one of the partners may
have a short life he
may very well think this person is not a person who should marry.
The subject of longevity is a complex subject in itself. I am
going to treat this extensively. There are a couple of methods to
predict the longevity.
However as Richard Houck as shown in his book ‘the astrology of death’
methods do not work very well.
My advice would be to keep it simple. If the first house (the
itself and the lord) and the Moon in a chart are strong and there are
not many planets in
dushtana houses a person will probably live longer than if the first
house and the Moon
are weak and there are many planets in dushtana houses.
This is an easy ‘rule of thumb’ which may be more useful
than some complicated quantitative methods that in practise do not
3. AN EASY VEDIC ASTROLOGICAL ANALYSIS
One method of Vedic astrological compatibility analysis, which
like, is the following:
Look for the ascendant of person A and person B, see in what
they are and what the relationships of these signs are. If the
ascendant is in a 2/12 or
6/8 relationship this is problematic, but if it is in a 5/9
relationship this is good. I
also think that a 3/11 relationship can work very well. Also if both
ascendants are in the
same sign this is a good factor.
Apart from conjunctions Kendra relationships (4/10 and the
opposition) may be difficult.
There are some expections to this rule. Like if both signs are
by the same planet this is good. Example: Libra and Taurus are in 6/8
since Venus rules both signs, they do have something in common.
You can also compare the Moon, Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars in
Of course, they symbolize different aspects of the
example Mercury symbolizes the communication in the relationship).
I do not think comparing Jupiter and Saturn is very useful
both people have a big age difference (let us say more than 5 years).
This is because
Jupiter and Saturn are slow moving.
To find explanations look for the elements the planets are in.
example: If the Moon of A is in Leo and the Moon of B is in Cancer we
have a problem
because fire and water do not go together well.
The relationship will be somewhat better for B then for A. The
of A is in the second house from the Moon of B. However, the Moon of B
is in the twelfth
house (sign Cancer) from the Moon of A (sign Leo). Therefore, it is
possible that B will
drain (twelfth house) A.
You also can analyze planetary pairs. If the Venus of one
in opposition to the Mars of the other person that will mean strong
This is also the case if the Venus of A conjuncts the Mars of B.
A similar rule can be made of the relationship between the Sun
the Moon. If the Sun of one person is in opposition to the Moon of the
other person this
works well. This is also the case if the Sun of A conjuncts the Moon of
In cases like these will be a good exchange of female (Shakti:
and Venus) and male (Shiva: Sun and Mars) energies.
I do think this is a fruitful and not too difficult method. If
use this method, it is recommended to use the South Indian format
(which I use in this
course) because in this format the signs in different charts are in the
4. SUDARSHAN CHAKRA
It is also possible to analyze the influence of planets in
great tool for this is the so-called Sudarshan Chakra. This is a chart
made up of two
circles, like the circles used in Western Astrology. There is an inner
chart, which can be
the chart of partner A and there is an outer chart, which is the chart
of partner B. The
ascendant of both charts is at the same place (usually at the top of
You can see which houses of A are activated by partner B. For
example if I have a partner who has a lot of planets that activate my
eighth house it is
very well possible that I experience her as confrontational.
If she activates my ninth house she may broaden my horizon and
feel great because of her, especially if my ninth house is being
activated by her benefics
("Yes, I love to go to India with you"). If it is being activated by
malefics it could be that she somehow limits or frustrates the way I
would like to broaden
my horizon ("Oh no, you are again planning a trip to India?").
THE SUDARSHAN CHART IS SHOWN IN THE COURSE MATERIAL
5. TAJIKA ANALYSIS
There is another type of analysis possible. Although Tajika
is seldom used when analyzing birthcharts, I do not see a principle
reason why we should
not do this.
What I would like to suggest now is not so much as to use the
method for analyzing a birthchart but to make a comptability analysis
using the Tajika
The principle is easy. Just look what kind of aspects the
A make with the planets of B. Let us say the Sun of A makes a trine to
the Jupiter of B. A
(the Sun person) will feel stimulated by B (the Jupiter person). He
will note the
stimulating Jupiterian energy of B. B (the Jupiter) person will feel
empowered by A (the Sun person). If it is a square instead of a trine
the stimulation may
be a bit too much.
If you make an analysis like that, you will encounter many
some of them seem to be contradictory, but this merely reflects the
nature of reality that
sometimes is complex. For example: It is also possible that in addition
to the aspect I
mentioned before the Moon of A makes a square to the Saturn of B. A
(the Moon person) will
feel restricted by B (the Saturn person). By the way, if the aspect
would be a trine A
(the Moon person) would merely feel ‘grounded’ by B (the Saturn
person). That is
not a bad experience.
To avoid an overload take the Tajika orbs and divide them by
For example: If we analyse the relationship between the Sun
Jupiter between charts we look for the maximum orb of the Sun which is
15 and the maximum
orb of Jupiter which is 9.
(15+9):2=12, which is the regular Tajika orb for a Sun-Jupiter
To avoid an overload this maximum orb is divided by two. The
will be a maximum orb of 6 degrees.
What makes this analysis complicated is that for every
combination you have to calculate a maximum orb. This may very well be
the reason that in
contemporary Western astrology the maximum orbs are the same for
certain kind of aspects
(all squares have the same maximum orb, all sextiles have the same
maximum orb and so on).
If you want to keep it simple, I would like to suggest a
for all aspect of 5 degrees. Of course, calculating the maximum orb for
combination is better. If you have the courage and time to do that,
please feel free to do
Personally, I only look at conjunctions with Rahu and Ketu and
at aspects. However, you may well have another opinion about this.
6. KUTAS ANALYSIS
In what follows I will explain the traditional method of Kutas
analysis. The traditional method consists of comparing the Nakshatra in
which the Moon of
the bride is located with the Nakshatra in which the Moon of the
It is also possible to do a more sophisticated analysis in
only the Nakshatras in which the Moon is are compared, but also the
Nakshatras of the
ascendant and Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.
The Kutas analysis consists of 12 factors. Every factor can
some points. After the analysis is made all the points are added up. To
have a good
relationship a minimum of points is required. If the total points are
below that minimum
than it is possible that the astrologer will advise against the
Here are the different factors:
- Dina Kuta: If the Nakshatra of the man is 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8
Nakshatras from the Nakshatra of the woman 3 points will be given. If
the number is 9 or more it is divided by 9 and we work with the
remainder. Let us say the Nakshatra of the man is 14 Nakshatras from
the Nakshatra of the woman 14/9=1 and the remainder is 5. Because the
remainder is 5 no points are being given.
- Gana Kuta: When we dealt with the Nakshatras we have seen
that we can divide the Nakshatras in deva, human (manusha) and demon
(rakshaka) Nakshatras. Look for this in lesson 2, paragraph 5 under
temperaments. People who have their Moons in Nakshatras that fall in
the same category can marry. A deva man can marry a deva or manusha
woman. Six points are given. He cannot marry a rakshaka woman (0 points
are given). A manusha man can marry a deva woman (5 points are given)
or a manusha woman (6 points are given). He should not marry a rakshaka
woman (0 points). A rakshaka man should not marry a deva woman (1
point) or a manusha woman (0 points). He can marry a rakshaka woman (6
points). When the lords of the signs in the rashi or navamsa of the man
and woman are the same bad Gana Kuta results can be compensated
(however this does not change the points that are being given).
- Mahendra Kuta: The Nakshatra of the man should be 4, 7, 10,
13, 16, 19, 22 or 25 Nakshatras away from the Nakshatra of the woman. A
good Mahendra Kuta should promote the longevity of the relationship.
This factor is mentioned in a Kuta analysis, but no points are given by
- Stree Dirgha: The Nakshatra of the man should preferably be
more than 9 constellations away from the Nakshatra of the woman. This
factor is mentioned in a Kuta analysis, but no points are given by this
- Yoni Kuta: This has to do with sexual compatibility. Every
Nakshatra is associated with a type of yoni. Example: Vishakha and
Chitra are associated with a tiger yoni. That means these Nakshatras
are rather wild in making love. There is also a division in male and
female yonis. Vishakha has a male tiger yoni and Chitra a female tiger
yoni. It is best if both partners are born in Nakshatras, which
symbolize the same yoni type, but of different sexes. Therefore,
someone with the Moon in Vishakha would be a great sexual match for
someone with the Moon in Chitra. If a couple has friendly yonis of the
female sex marriage will be acceptable. It will be difficult if the two
people both have male yonis.
TABLE OF YONIS AND CORRESPONDING NAKSHATRAS IS SHOWN IN
THE COURSE MATERIAL AS IS A TABLE OF HOW MANY POINTS ARE GIVEN TO EACH
- Rashi Kuta: This factor is different from the factors,
which are shown above, because this deals with the signs in which the
Moons are located (and not the Nakshatras).
Bad results: Moon in the chart of the man is in the 2, 3,
4, 5, 6 th from the Moon in the chart of woman.
Bad results: Moon in chart of the woman is in the 12 th
from the Moon in the chart of the man.
Good results: Moon in Chart of the man is in the 12 (gives
longevity), 7 th (gives agreement) from the Moon in the chart of woman.
Good results: Moon in chart of the woman is in the 2
(gives longevity), 3 (gives happiness), 4 (gives wealth), 5 (gives
happiness), 6 (progeny will prosper), 7 th (gives agreement) from the
Moon in the chart of the man.
When both signs are owned by the same planet inauspicious
effects will be cancelled.
The bad results coming from a certain number are the
opposite of the good results.
If good results exists (or if bad results are cancelled) 7
points will be given by this factor.
- Graha Maitram: This factor is dependend upon the
friendships or animosities of the lords of the Moonsigns of the couple.
In the first course, a diagram was presented with the friendships and
animosities of the planets. This is diagram 5 shown in lesson 4. When
the lords of the Moonsigns are friends Graha Maitram is at its maximum.
In this case five points are given. When lord A is a friend to lord B
and lord B is neutral to lord A this is good. Four points are being
given. When both are neutral, Graha Maitram is mediocre. This will
bring in three points. When one is friendly and the other is inimical 1
point is given. When one is neutral and the other is inimical this will
give a � point. When both are enemies Graha Maitram is zero. However,
if a friendship exists between the lords of the Moonsigns in the
navamsa three points are given (instead of zero, � or one point).
- Vasyu Kuta: Some signs have a certain degree of magnetism
to each other. Vasyu Kuta magnetism makes understanding of each other
easier. If the Moon of the female feels magnetism towards the Moon of
the male one point is given. If the Moon of the male feels magnetism
towards the Moon of the female, also one point is given. Therefore, the
maximum amount of points to be gained from this factor is two, if
magnetism exists from both sides.
TABLE IS SHOWN IN COURSE MATERIAL
- Rajju: This factor is used to measure the duration of
married life. The Nakshatras are being divided into 5 types of Rajju.
To make a long relationship possible the Moon Nakshatras of the couple
should not fall in the same Rajju. Below you will see a table of the
divisions. I have also mentioned the number of a certain Nakshatra. You
can see that the Nakshatras, which are mentioned in a next category,
are always the neighbouring Nakshtras of a former category.
TABLE 14: RAJJUS
Padarajju: Ashwini (1), Ashlesha (9), Magha (10), Jyeshta
(18), Mula (19), Revati (27).
Katirajju: Bharani (2), Pushya (8), Purva Phalguni (11),
Anuradha (17), Purva Ashadha (20), Uttara Bhadrapada (26).
Nabhi: Krittika (3), Punarvasu (7), Uttara Phalguni (12),
Vishakha (16), Uttara Ashadha (21), Purva Bhadrapada (25).
Kantarajju: Rohini (4), Ardra (6), Hasta (13), Swati (15),
Shravana (22), Shatabhishak (24).
Sirorajju: Mrigashira (5), Chitra (14), Dhanistha (23).
In a Kutas analysis, this factor is mentioned but no
points are given by this factor.
- Vedha: Some Nakshatras are said to afflict each other. A
marriage between people who have their Moons in Nakshatras, which
afflict each other, should not take place. This is a list of the
TABLE 15: VEDHAS
Ashwini (1) and Jyeshta (18); Bharani (2) and Anuradha
(17); Krittika (3) and Vishakha (16); Rohini (4) and Swati (15);
Mrigashira (5) and Dhanistha (23); Ardra (6) and Shravana (22);
Punarvasu (7) and Uttara Ashadha (21); Pushya (8) and Purva Ashadha
(20); Ashlesha (9) and Mula (19); Magha (10) and Revati (27); Purva
Phalguni (11) and Uttara Bhadrapada (26); Uttara Phalguni (12) and
Purva Bhadrapada (25); Hasta (13) and Shatabhishak (24).
In a Kuta analysis, this factor is mentioned but no points
are given by this factor.
- Varna: This is a factor, which is supposed to be an
indication of the spiritual development of the partners.
TABLE 16: VARNAS
These are the categories:
Brahmin (priests): Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces.
Kshatriya (politics and war): Leo, Sagittarius, Libra.
Vaisya (business): Taurus, Virgo and
Sudra (manual labour and
service): Aries, Gemini, Aquarius.
If the woman is in a higher category as the man 0 points
are given by this factor.
If the man is in a higher category as the woman 1 point
(which is the maximum) is given by this factor.
If they both belong to the same category 1 point is given.
- Nadi Kuta: In lesson 13 of the first course we have seen
that in ayurveda three constitution types are recognized: Vata, Pitta
and Kapha. The Nakshatras are divided between these three temperaments.
The Moons of the man and the woman should fall in Nakshatras of a
different dosha. It is also recommended that the Moons do not fall in
the same rows of the scheme below. This factor is important because the
points to be gained by this factor are 8.
TABLE IS SHOWN IN THE COURSE MATERIAL
The total amount of points to be gained is 36. As a rule of
can say that the minimum points which should be gained for the match to
be good is 21.
Keep in mind that this is just one factor. The traditional
based only on the Moon. Nevertheless, it is possible to compare all the
planets and the
ascendant by this method. Not just the Moon. We may calculate the
average results for all
these. In that case, the picture may very well be different.
7. EXAMPLE: PRINCE CHARLES AND LADY DIANA
As an example of how to do the analysis we will look at what
have been the ‘dream couple of the 20th. Century’ Prince Charles and
You see the charts below.
Note that although the marriage did not work out, neither of
has Kuja Dosha from the ascendant. They both have Kuja Dosha from the
the theory that Kuja Dosha (from the Moon) is cancelled if both
partners have Kuja Dosha
(from the Moon) has obviously not worked in this case.
THE EASY ANALYSIS
First let us do the ’easy analysis’.
- Ascendant: The ascendant of Charles in in Cancer and of
Lady Di in Scorpio. This is a 5/9 relationship and therefore good.
- Moon: The Moon of Charles is in Aries and the Moon of Lady
Di in Aquarius. This is a 3/11 relationship and therefore quite well.
On the level of the mind (Moon) they will connect well to each other.
- Sun: The Sun of Lady Di is in Gemini and of Charles in
Libra. This is a 5/9 relationship and is very good. On the level of the
soul (Sun) there must have been agreement.
- Mercury: Mercury in Diana’s chart is in Gemini and in the
chart of Charles in Libra. Again this is a 5/9 relationship, which
means that there must have been good communication.
- Venus: The Venus of Charles is in Virgo and the Venus of
Diana is in Taurus. This is another 5/9 relationship. There must have
been some love between the couple.
- Mars: Mars in Charles chart is in Scorpio and Mars in
Diana’s chart is in Leo. This is a kendra relationship and therefore
difficult. The two energies are in conflict. There must have been some
fights. Because there is a considerable difference in age we can
proceed to analyse Jupiter and Saturn
- Jupiter: Jupiter in the chart of Diana is in Capricorn and
in the chart of Charles in Sagitarius. This is a 2/12 relationship and
therefore bad. Their goals and ideals must have been different.
- Saturn: Saturn in the chart of Diana is in Capricorn and in
the chart of Charles in Leo. The relationship is 6/8 and therefore bad.
Being in each other’s presence did certainly not lessen the feelings of
Conclusion: The ascendant, Moon, Sun, Mercury and Venus agree.
Jupiter and Saturn are not. This is a somewhat better than average
score. However, we have
more information than that, by making the analysis we have seen where
the difficulties are
and where there are points of agreement.
I will follow my own advice and keep a maximum orb of 5
This type of analysis is easier if you take one chart as the
I will use the chart of Diana for that, but I could also have
the chart of Charles.
- Diana has her ascendant at 25.27 Scorpio. First, we have to
look whether Charles has planets between 20.27 (25.27-5) and 30.00 of
each sign (we do not go beyond a sign). If we have found such planets
we will have to analyze whether they form aspects and if so which
aspects. Charles has the Sun in Libra at 29.16, but because planets in
Libra cannot make aspects to planets in Scorpio this is not an aspect.
He also has Mars at 27.48 Scorpio. This is right on her ascendant. She
(ascendant) will stimulate his energy (Mars). This aspect may also
cause disagreements. His Venus is at 23.14 Virgo. This is a sextile and
therefore positive. His sense of beauty (Venus) is pleased by her
- The Moon of Diana is at 1.43 Aquarius. We are going to look
whether Charles has planets between 0 (we never go beyond the sign) and
6.43 degrees of each sign. He does not have any. It seems he is
incapable of connecting to her on the level of feelings and he can not
reach her mind. In a relationship, this is problematic.
- The Sun of Diana is at 16.21 Gemini. The range that we have
to investigate is 11.21 tot 21.21. We find the ascendant of Charles at
12.14 Cancer. A planet, which is in Cancer cannot make a Tajika aspect
to a planet that is in Sagittarius. Mercury in Charles’ chart is at
13.48 in Libra. This is a trine and may mean that Charles can reason
(Mercury) with Diana (Sun). On an intellectual level, he can connect
with her. Charles’ Saturn is in Leo at 12.07. This is a sextile.
Charles may ground (Saturn) Diana (Sun).
- Mercury in Diana’s chart is at 9.53 Gemini. The range is
4.53 tot 14.53. The ascendant of Charles is within range but does not
make a Tajika aspect because an astrological point in Cancer cannot
make an aspect to a planet in Gemini. The Moon is at 7.17 Aries, which
makes a sextile to Diana’s Mercury. He can talk (Mercury) to Diana
about his feelings (Moon) (however, we have seen under 2 that she
cannot do the same thing to him). His Mercury is at 13.48 Libra. This
is a trine. On a more intellectual level they can connect well to each
other. His Saturn is at 12.07 Leo. He may help her to speak (Mercury)
- Venus in the chart of Diana is at 1.06 Taurus. The range is
0-6.06. Now we see that not a single planet of Charles makes an aspect
to this Venus. Because Venus is the natural karaka for marriage, this
is a bad situation. It is strange that her husband does not activate
Diana’s planet of love and marriage in any way.
- The Mars of Diana is at 8.21 Leo. The range will be 3.21
and 13.21. Charles’ ascendant is at 12.14 in Cancer. This is not an
aspect, because an astrological factor in Cancer cannot make a Tajika
aspect to a planet in Leo. The Moon of Charles is at 7.17 Aries. This
is a trine. Charles’ mind (Moon) will be empowered (Mars) by Diana.
Jupiter in Charles’ chart is at 6.44 Sagittarius. Again, a trine.
Charles will stimulate (Jupiter) her strength (Mars). Charles’ Saturn
is at 12.08 Leo. This is a conjunction. A conjunction especially
between to planets which are very much different from each other is
difficult. Mars is a planet that wants totally different things than
Saturn. Mars wants to express his energy. Saturn restricts. Therefore,
Charles’ Saturn restricts the expression of the energy of Diana. This
is interesting because when we were dealing with the trine of his
Jupiter to her Mars we said Charles would support her energy. In Tajika
analysis, it is inevitable that we encounter situations like that. It
may very well be that on one level he supported her energy (indeed it
was because of him that she came out into the limelight) and on another
level blocked it (their bad marriage).
- Jupiter in Diana’s chart is at 11.47 Capricorn. The range
is 6.47 tot 16.47. Charles has his ascendant at 12.14 Cancer.
Therefore, Diana’s Jupiter is located opposite his ascendant. What is
even more interesting is that it conjuncts a point called the
descendant which says something about marriage (the descendant is
always exactly opposite the ascendant). Jupiter’s Diana on his
descendant (marriage point) is very good. She seems to be able to
fullfill his wishes on the field of marriage. The Moon of Charles is at
7.17 Aries. This is a square. Now squares of Jupiter are not that bad,
because Jupiter is the great benefic. It may be that she gives some
unrest in his mind (Moon), but this is not an aspect, which causes
great problems. Another square is made to his Mercury, which is in
Libra (13.51). It may be that she stimulates his thinking too much and
brings some unrest in her life.
- Saturn in Diana’s chart is at 4.30 Capricorn. The range is
0-9.30. Charles Moon is at 7.17 Aries. This is a square. A Saturn-Moon
affliction is one of the worst aspects possible. The Moon is where we
are vulnerable. If the Saturn of a person afflicts our Moon than we do
not feel safe with that person. Neither do we feel accepted by him or
her. Diana may cause Charles to feel depressed. Especially in a
marriage, this is a probematic aspect.
The conclusion is many aspects are harmonic (although there
some very difficult ones). There must be some reason why for many
people they appeared to
be a ‘dream couple’ for some time and we should realize that it is
this marriage that Diana changed from an unknown girl into a legend.
However, it is
striking that neither Diana’s Moon nor Venus were touched by the
planets of Charles.
I believe that these ‘soft planets’ are cruxial in marriage.
Whatever their connection was, on the feeling of love (Venus)
feelings (Moon) Diana was not touched by Charles at all.
By giving interpretations, I have given the more commonly used
interpretations. However, it may be that in this special case we could
also have choosen
other meanings for the planets. Like Jupiter is the planet that has to
do with fame. The
Sun is the planet of royalty. If you look at some of the trines and
sextiles with these
‘alternative meanings’ in mind this may give additional insight in how
trines have worked out.
My goal was to give an example of a Tajika analysis, which is
to you when you make your own analyses. That is why I have choosen the
meanings of the planets and have not choosen meanings which possibly
could be more
appropiate for this particular situation.
KUTA ANALYSIS OF CHARLES AND DIANA
We are not done with Charles and Diana yet. Now we will make
- Dina Kuta: Diana’s Moon is in Dhanista (23). Charles’ Moon
is in Ashwini (1). Now we have to count: 23,24,25,26,27,1 the Nakshatra
of Charles is 6 Nakshatras from the Nakshatra of Diana. This is good.
Therefore 3 points are given.
- Gana Kuta: Charles has his Moon in a deva Nakshatra, but
Diana is a Rakshaka. This is a difficult match therefore no points are
- Mahendra Kuta: The Nakshatra of Charles is 6 Nakshatras
from that of Diana. Therefore the match according to this factor is
- Stree Deergha: The Nakshatra of Charles is not more than 9
Nakshatras away from the Nakshatra of Diana. The pairing is bad.
- Yoni: Now we will finally know how Charles and Diana felt
when they were making love. Charles’ yoni is the yoni of of male horse.
However, Diana has the yoni of a female Mongoose. This gives only one
- Rasi Kuta: The Moon of Diana is in Aquarius and the Moon of
Charles in Aries. That means the Moon of Charles is in the third from
the Moon of Diana. This gives bad results. No points are given.
- Graha Maitram: The lord of Diana’s Moon is Saturn and of
Charles Moon is Mars. According to diagram 5 in the first course Saturn
is neutral to Mars, but Mars is an enemy to Saturn. This could result
in � point. However, in the navamsa of Diana (not shown) the Moon is
in Libra and in the navamsa of Charles (not shown) the Moon is in
Gemini. It happens that Venus is a friend of Mercury and Mercury is a
friend of Venus. Therefore three points are given.
- Vasya: Charles’ Moon feels attraction to Leo and Scorpio.
However Diana’s Moon is in Aquarius. Diana’s Moon feels attracted to
Aries, which is the sign in which Charles’ Moon is located. Therefore
one point is given.
- Rajju: Charles’ Moon (Ashwini) is located in Padarajju and
Diana’s Moon (Dhanista) in Sirorajju. Thus they are located in
different rajus, which is good .
- Vedha: Ashwini and Dhanita do not afflict each other.
Therefore this factor is good.
- Aries is a Kshatriya sign and Aquarius is a Sudra sign.
Therefore Charles is in a higher Varna than Diana. This is
good and one point is being given
because of that.
- Nadi: Ashwini is a Vata Nakshatra and Dhanistha is Pitta.
These are different doshas. Therefore eight points are given.
The maximum amount of points to be gained is 36. In this case
match gets 17 points. This is not good. A Vedic astrologer would not
have approved of this
To make this exercise you have to compare your chart to the
your partner (or ex- partner).
- First make the ‘easy analysis’, which consists of comparing
the signs in which the ascendant, Moon, Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars
(and if the age difference is considerable Jupiter and Saturn) are
- Then make a Tajika analysis.
- Finally, make an evaluation according to the Kuta system of
chart analysis. If you are in a homosexual relationship, you could make
the analysis twice. First, an evaluation with partner A in the male and
with partner B in the female role. Then an analysis with partner B in
the male and partner A in the female position. You have to take the
average of the results. This is also the way to analyse non-sexual
relationships using the Kuta system. Sorry for the extra work.
