Horoscope- The Eternal Match Maker

Horoscope is an astrological chart that maps the position of nine planets across a number of houses representing the solar system, in a graphical pattern. It’s a well known part of Indian astrology and is believed to that the astrological charts can identify and predict the character and fate of a person. The Indian astrologers believe that the horoscope exerts an important influence on human life. That is why the matching of horoscope is very popular and widely practiced in Indian matrimony. Birth horoscopes are compared once a marriage is fixed in order to find if the two people are compatible. It’s an ancient Vedic practice to match the astrological charts of two people. The matching process is done in eight spheres of life. The charts are made on the basis of the full name of the concerned persons and the date, time and place of their birth. Earlier the Indian marriages were finalized only after the matching of horoscopes of the bride and groom.
In order to prepare a perfect chart, one should provide with the exact date, time and place of birth, as even a small error can vastly influence the interpretation of the horoscope. Today there are many online service providers to can prepare your horoscope online. But often there are differences in interpretations by different service providers. The general trend is to consult a Vedic astrologer in order to get a proper interpretation of a horoscope, though the interpretation of different astrologers too can vary. Horoscopes are mostly used to find out the positive and negative characters of a person. Almost every religion has the tradition of matching astrological charts, though the technique differs from one religion to another. However, the most iniquitous attribute across all religion is the Manglik Dasha, which occurs when Mars is placed in 1st, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th house. These houses stand for the happiness, mental peace, marriage, longevity and expenditure. In spite of having a diverse cultural mosaic, the astrologers across India believes in the ill effect of Manglik Dasha. If a marriage occurs with one of the partners having Manglik Dasha, this could mean devastation in their married life as there would ensue constant quarrel, divorce and even death of spouse. But there is a solution to this problem- Performing puja, making the Manglik wear a coral or getting him/her married to a tree to absorb the aggression, are some of them.
