A marriage is a union of two souls, an alliance of two families, and a significant milestone to reach. They say it is all written in the stars, and you are destined for almost everything in life. Well, so is marriage, but how do we know that the person we are engaged to be married to is the right one? Vedic Astrology does not declare or change someone’s destiny, but simply narrates it to you.

The same is the case with a marital alliance. Vedic Astrology guides you on the journey to find a perfect partner. Most of you must have come across the term “Guna Milan,” at least in your life, even if you are not the one marrying. That’s the relevance of Guna Milan in Indian societies. As orthodox as it is deemed, it is pretty ahead of its times. Through Guna Milan, a couple’s mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual compatibility is checked, verified, and scored. On the basis of this, the couple’s mutual friendship, understanding, power, and love are judged.

With Arranged marriages on the rise in Hindu societies, Guna Milan works in their favor. This helps the couple understand each other and gives satisfaction to the couple’s families.  After all, everybody wants the best for their children. There are 36 Gunas (or points) in all, on the basis of which you are scored, according to eight aspects or AshtaKoot.

  • Varna (1 point)
    checks the spiritual compatibility in accordance with their ego levels. There are four Varnas- Brahmin, Kshatriya, Vaishya, and Shudra.
  • Vasya (2 points)
    checks the mutual attraction and equation between the couple. There are five Vasya(s)- Manav (human), Vanchar (wild animals), Chatushpad (small animals), Jalchar (sea animals), Keet (insects).
  • Tara (3 points)
    checks the birth star or nakshatra compatibility and destiny. There are twenty-seven nakshatras in all.
  • Yoni (4 points)
    checks the mutual love, intimacy, and sexual compatibility. There are fourteen Yonis in all-Ashva (Horse), Gaja (elephant), Chaga (sheep/goat), Sarpa (snake), Shawan (Dog), Maarjaat (cat), Mesha (Ram), Mushaka (Rat), Simha (lion), Maheesha (Buffalo), Vyaghra (tiger), Mriga (deer), Vaanar (monkey), Nakula (mongoose), Gau (Cow)
  • Graha Maitri (5 points)
    checks the friendship, bond, and affection between the couple. Moon sign compatibility is included under this aspect.
  • Gana (6 points)
    checks the behavioral temperament. There are three Ganas- Deva (God), Manava (human), and Rakshasa (demon).
  • Rashi (7 points)
    checks love and emotional compatibility. It also analyses and compares the birth charts of the boy and the girl.
  • Nadi (8 points)
    checks the overall health, wellbeing, and genes of the couple. There are three kinds of Nadis– Aadi Nadi, Madya Nadi, and Antya Nadi.

Hence the total number of Ganas is 36. Depending on the score, your marital match is assessed.

  • 32-36: a perfect match
  • 24- 32: a very good match
  • 18-24: An Average match
  • 0-18: poor match; not recommended

All in all, Guna Milan is an essential aspect of Kundali matching and to see whether or not a couple is compatible or not. Although a 32-36 score us a perfect match, any score starting from 18 can be considered. Although 18 is not a very good score, astrologers can give you remedies and solutions so as to make things easy for your marriage.
