Horoscope matching for marriage for devotees – Who require? Who don’t?

Horoscope matching for marriage for devotees – Who require? Who don’t? 

A devotee (Name hidden) asked like this:

Can two Krishna conscious person marry if their kundalis are not matching? What is the minimum requirement to let marriage happen between two k.c people? hide my name.


First, I like to clarify that Horoscope matching means not just seeing 10 or 12 Guna Milan Matches based on the stars of both the bride and groom.  It is an easy job and many marriages fail because of stopping with 10-12 match analysis alone. Their nature and dosha matching should also be well analyzed.  I usually give 3-4 page report for every matching task of horoscopes with 12 matches, Dosha Matches, Nature and future analysis and final suggestion based on everything because marriage is an one time affair in life.  75% of the astrologers do not see this much of matching tasks.

(You can match the horoscopes as advised by me in THIS PAGE.)

Horoscopes show their effects only until a person is leading a materialistic way of life.  If he detaches completely from material way of life lives for the lord krishna, the planets do not disturb him.  This is the general system.

When two persons having two contrary characters marry, it may not go well.  If the persons of similar nature marries, it is a happy married life.  That’s all.  The horoscope says what kind of person he / she is.  The horoscopes are the indications of our karma with which we have taken birth.

How to avoid the planets from affecting you?

Simple! You should first become a sincere devotee of Krishna. Then, you marry another sincere devotee.  Both of you should abandon materialistic way of life and lead a grahastha life serving Krishna together.

This stage is the Mental Sanyasa stage. Once you attain this mental sanyasa stage, it means that you are not going to live for you hereafter. Since both of you will be targeting Krishna alone, both of you will be interested in the similar SELFLESS activities like Chanting, Prasadam preparation, Aratis, Reading of Krishna Literatures, Preaching for others, etc. Therefore, the impact of the planets will be very less or nil depending on the level of your material detachments.

If two persons marry with some material objectives like enjoying pleasures, pride, fame, status, etc., we can not avoid small to big problems in life given by the planets, as they are their natural expected duties for materialistic people.

The planets are the employees in the karma department of Krishna. Krishna has engaged them to give the reactions for all the actions in our previous and present births.

Let me explain this with these two examples:

(1) The income tax department in the countries do not disturb any citizen until he is properly showing his accounts and paying the right taxes.

However, if you deviate from adhering to the income tax rules, the Tax officials wake up and start to act on you.

(2) Similarly, until you are following the traffic rules, you need not bother about the traffic policemen. They will be your friends and they will not disturb you.

At the same time, if you violate the traffic rules, then, they do their duty and penalize you.


A person (ATHMA) is expected to lead this rare human life only to serve his master PARAMATHMA. The planets do not disturb a person until he is leading a service oriented life for Krishna. Because, he is under the direct  shelter of his master Krishna. The planets have NO PERMISSION to disturb him. However, if he is leading a life for material pleasures, fame, pride, status, etc, then, he is under the control of planets, not under Krishna. Therefore, the planets are entitled to offer reactions for every action of a person. These reactions should make him gradually pure and also make him think of his master Krishna at a point of his life.  Then, the planets will withdraw their hold from him.

This is the system.


If the married couples detach from the material desires stage by stage, they will become nice couples and they will be guided by Krishna, not the planets. So, Horoscope matching for marriage is not required for them.

Except the ageing and death, other things are not decided by the planets, but, by Krishna.

All the happenings in our life like the successes and failures in love, marriage life, business, etc,.. all are the results of karma.

If you expect your marriage to happen in spite of negative aspects in horoscopes, both the husband and wife should be serious devotees without material attachments.

But, this does not mean that we should not take efforts.  The Lord has told us in Bhagavad Gita to perform our assigned duties.  So, we should not remain effortless blaming karma.

Even marriage is an arrangement to serve the Lord together.   So, marry a boy and keep your heart dedicated to Krishna.

Gopis were married girls.  They lived with their husbands.  However, they were always thinking of Krishna.  They were always in Krishna Consciousness.  Hence, they got Krishna Himself.

Here, let me remind my experience with horoscope effects:

When I started my business, I was not Krishna Conscious and had not learnt astrology.  I did not know that according to my horoscope, I will suffer in loans if I do own business.  Without knowing this fact, I started my business to become rich like others think.  This is the desire for fame. Therefore, my horoscope actively worked.  I suffered with heavy loans.

Fortunately, within a few months, the devotees from ISKCON met me.  I learnt Krishna Conscious way of life from ISKCON and the books of Srila Prabhupada.

Then, the way of my life changed totally. I started to think how foolish I have been to have desired to become rich without knowing my karma of suffering with the loans.

Mean time, I learnt astrology and checked my horoscope that showed that it is my karma to be a mental sanyasi and a servant of Krishna.  Then, I started to abandon all my material desires one by one, and started to lead as simple life as possible.  I chanted, did worship, entrusted myself in the hands of Krishna.  I stopped expecting any benefits out of my business, but, was doing my assigned duties with a detached mindset, hoping that Krishna will take care of my course of life hereafter.

Believe it or not, when I stopped expecting the fruits, my business income doubled and I cleared all the loans within 2-3 years preventing my bad repute.

What this shows?

If you stop material attachments and work as an instrument in the hands of Krishna, then, Krishna will save you from the fall down.  The horoscope will not act on you who is leading a sanyasi way of life serving Krishna.  If you and your spouse both are such a detached devotees, horoscope matching for marriage is not required for you.

The recommendation  for a devotee of Krishna is:  SIMPLE LIVING AND HIGH THINKING.


Therefore, if a couple leads a life with material detachment and attachment to Krishna, horoscope can not separate them and Horoscope matching for marriage is not required for them.  If they just perform devotion ritualistically, but, if they lead a life for their pleasure, fame, pride, etc, then, horoscope will definitely act on them.

Hope you are clear about Horoscope matching for marriage for the devotees.
