Using Jyotish to assess compatibility.

Every connection we make with others will somehow shape or mature us, but we have all experienced relationships that were temporary. Finding enough synergy between two people that will withstand time, change, hardship, sharing finances, sharing space, and sharing families, is challenging.
Elements of compatibility
“Finding enough synergy between two people that will withstand time, change, hardship, sharing finances, sharing space, and sharing families, is challenging.”
In Jyotish, there are just as many matchmaking variables to consider as there are in practical life.
COMMUNICATION AND ROMANCE
In Jyotish, there are just as many matchmaking variables to consider as there are in practical life. Communication can be assessed using Mercury’s rashi sambanda between the two charts (5-9, 4-10, 6-8, etc.), Mercury, 2nd and 3rd houses. Emotional, boundary, and attachment differences or struggles can be seen from each partner’s Moon and 4th house. Sexual compatibility may be analyzed using D9 Kama trines: Saturn relates to much less frequent, while Moon prefers very frequent.
There is financial compatibility. What is the rashi sambanda between Jupiters? Are there poverty yogas? The spouse with the better financial chart would be wise to hold accounts and loans under his or her name, or seek a financial counselor.
GUNAS: MINDSET and FREQUENCY
Guna synergy is also important. BPHS provides a general rule for marriage compatibility: for a happy marriage, each partner should be of similar gunas (sattvic, rajasic, or tamasic in character). This can be analyzed using the state of lagna and lagnesha as primary indicators, while the dominant guna from each chart as a whole should also be decided. If not similar, the dominant spouse should have higher gunas, so that life decisions are made from a more sattvic place. The gunas are well described in Bhagavad Gita and can also be understood by knowing the sattvic grahas (Jupiter, Sun, Moon), rajasic grahas (Mercury, Venus), and tamasic grahas (Mars, Saturn, nodes). As a quick overview I like to remember: Sattva is acting when one must act and not acting when one does not need to act, rajas is acting even when one does not need to act, and tamas is not acting.
Compromise is everything, but smaller gaps are easier to bridge.
Are the graha sambandas similar between you and your partner’s charts? How do your gunas compare?
