Common janma-nakshatra of the bride and the groom

If the Janma-Nakshatra of the bridegroom and the bride is one and the same in the same sign, in matching of horoscopes 28 gunas appear with only nadi dosha.

The following conditions are necessary for a compatible matching: -

i. If common janma-nakshatra were any of - Rohini, Aridra, Magha, Hasta, Vishakha, Sravana, Utharabadhrapadha or Revati, it would be excellent.

ii. If the common janma-nakshatra were any of Aswini, Krithika, Mrigasirsha, Punarvasu, Pushya, P.phalguni, U.phalguni, Chitra, Anuradha, Purvashada or Utharashada, the effect would be neutral.

iii. If the janma-nakshatra be any of Bharani, Aslesha, Swati, Jyestha, Mula, Sravana, Satabhisha, or Purvabadhra, the match should be considered unsuitable and marriage be avoided.

iv. If the janma nakshatra of the bridegroom and the bride belong to the same sign, the degree of Moon of the bridegroom must be prior to that of the bride; otherwise, it is inauspicious.

v. If the janma-nakshatra belongs to two signs, the pada of the constellation of the bridegroom should be the earlier. If it were otherwise, it will cause harm to the couple.

vi. The constellation of the bridegroom can be the next, in order, to that of the bride, if the constellation of bride be in: - Aswini, Krittika, Mrigashira, Magha, Hasta, Swati, Purvashadha and Satabhisha.

vii. If janma-nakshatra is common but is placed in two adjoining signs - if the bridegroom and the bride have a common janma-nakshatra belonging to two signs, the pada belonging to the first sign should be that of the bride. Any of the remaining three padas of the other sign may be that of the bridegroom. If the padas are divided equally between the two signs, the sign for the first two should be that of the bridegroom. If one pada is in one sign and three padas in the succeeding one, the sign for the 1st may be that of the bride and the remaining three of the groom.

viii. If nakshatras are different but rasi is same, the nakshatra of the groom should be first (in serial order).

Examples for same nakshatra and rasi

Where the Janma nakshatra of the boy and girl are the same, the boy's should precede the girl's.

Example 1: Boy - Anuradha (pada 2)

Girl - Anuradha (pada 4)

Since the boy's nakshatra precedes the girl's it is not a taboo.

Example 2: Boy-Krittika (pada 4)

Girl- Krittika (pada 2)

Since the girl's nakshatra comes earlier than the boy's, it cannot be considered.
