Fill in the below form for Kundli Matching
Matching the horoscopes of the prospective groom and bride is an age-old practice in India. In the present times, though, I do not recommend making important decisions like marriage on the basis of horoscopes or Kundli matching. It is exactly for this reason that I’ve provided you this tool here so you don’t have to rely on any third person for this information and therefore, eliminate the chances of being misguided. It doesn’t befit an educated or a spiritual person to make life-defining decisions based on astrological charts, in my humble view. Is astrology real?
Have fun and don’t take it too seriously. I’ve provided the astrology tools here for educative purposes only.

Is Kundli matching necessary for love marriage?
Sometimes the question arises whether to perform Kundali matching in case of love marriage or not. Om Swami answers this question by narrating a beautiful story; you can listen to it in his own words here. As per Om Swami, if the prospective groom or bride has chosen the partner by their will and both are committed towards each other then the necessity of Kundali matching should not arise. Conversely, if the marriage is performed even after Kundali matching but the couple is not committed then the chances of failure are even more.
Let me share one experience regarding Kundli matching in case, of love marriage.
A few years back in one of my previous companies, there was one bubbly girl in her mid-twenties, Swara.
One afternoon while having tea with her, I noticed that she was unusually quiet.
“Anything bothering you?” I asked.
She shooked her head. Few moments passed in silence.
“Did you do Kundali matching at the time of your marriage?”, Swara asked.
“Yes, we did. Since it was one of my mom’s filtering criteria, ” I chuckled.
“Hmm,” she said, troubled.
“Hey, are you getting married to Aadi?” I asked.
We all were aware that she was dating a boy named Aadi.
“Um, yeah might be,” she said slowly.
“Why you are sounding so dull, aren’t you sure?” I asked.
Aadi’s parents agreed initially however they don’t want to go forward after Kundli matching,” Swara said with a distant look.
“Oh, why so?” I asked.
“In Kundli matching, we discovered that I am Manglik,” Swara was teary-eyed by the time she finished the sentence.
“What Aadi thinks about it?” I asked.
“He doesn’t want to go against his parents,” Swara choked.
“He should have done Kundli matching before falling in love,” I remarked.
I felt sorry for Swara. Despite being beautiful, talented, and having a good professional career, she had to face such a heartbreak just because she is Manglik.
One should ask the question before taking any such decision – If I am in love with someone and truly committed then what is the need for Kundli matching? Do you think the fierceness of a planet can be reduced by merely marrying a tree?
Some astrology seers believe that if both prospective bride and groom are Manglik then this dosha gets mitigated. According to them, in such cases, the couple is capable of handling each other’s anger.
However, one should understand all aspects of Kundli Matching and the rationale behind it before reaching to any conclusion merely based on any one parameter. Furthermore, those who want to know the facts and myths of Kundli matching, Guna Milan using Ashtakoot, and other related astrological concepts, you can explore the Vedic Astrology (Hindi) and (English) course designed for self-learning.

The most prevalent misconception about Mangal dosha is if a Manglik marries a non-Manglik then it might cause the untimely demise of the non-Manglik partner or may cause marital discord/divorce. Hence it is believed that an alliance of Manglik should be done with Manglik to avoid any untoward happening.
What is the rationale behind Mangal dosha in Kundli Matching?
Mars is considered a fiery planet and when it is placed in the above-mentioned houses of the birth chart, except the 8th house, it imparts aspect on the 7th house representing life partner. Hence it is considered to be a cause of aggressiveness and disharmony in the marital relationship.
