Vedic Astrology also called as Jyotish Shastra in India is basically a science which studies motions and relative positions of planets, stars, sun and moon interpreted in terms of human behavior, their characteristics and activities. It helps an individual to develop a spiritual understanding, knowing oneself more deeply and on what timing, important actions of life are to be taken.

There are misconceptions related to Vedic Literature that it promotes fatalism. But it is not at all true; it does not predict our future but recognizes a person’s behavioral pattern and how their karmas affect them. Looking at an increasing divorce rate, many couples are worried about their marriage life. This is where the need to seek the help of Vedic Astrologer is felt. It not only helps to choose a right life partner but also in case of married couple, it helps them to have a better understanding of how a relationship works. Hindus prefer to consult an astrologer or a Pundit before the marriage and it is he who suggests all the things and bring forth the best date and time of the marriage as per the compatibility between the to-be bride and the to-be groom. It is on his suggestion that Hindu wedding cards are designed and printed specially if needed and it is he who suggests various prayers or remedies if there is some problem with the compatibility.

One’s marriage life, can be affected if their planets don’t favor them. Like it is believed that if a boy or a girl has a mangal dosh, then he/ she should only marry a person having a mangal dosh. There are also other planets whose wrong placement can create chaos in one’s life. Like the sun, the moon, rahu, ketu, Saturn and mars (mangala).

Consulting about the marriage compatibility from does not mean that if you work upon the advice of the astrologer, your marriage life will not have to go through tough situations or you will get a perfect life partner. But yes!! Your astrologer will give you certain mantra’s to recite or to perform rituals or he may also give you stones or gems to wear which will surely help you deal with unfavorable situations. Some also suggest certain mantra to be printed on the Hindu wedding cards for the marriage.

Again only mantras, rituals and gems won’t help; there should always be your hard work in making marriage a successful institution. It will teach you to be adjustable and have a positive approach towards your life partner. In case if any astrologer guarantees you that all your problems will come to an end only the methods they suggest, one should immediately change the astrologer and search for someone who gives you genuine advice. Vedic Astrologers are as ordinary as we are. It’s just that they have studied the Vedic science and can provide you with guidance. If any astrologer claims to possess some magical powers, then understand that he is a fraud.

The ancient Vedic techniques which were followed in the generation where kings ruled cannot be applied in this modern generation. In the same way, even the rules of marriage changes with the change in time. And what will printing certain mantras on the hindu wedding card will do. The stars and other planets are just energies, and an astrologer can only show you some methods to make your marriage fruitful. Just like how doctor can only diagnose the problem and give medicines and other ways of curing it. It is mainly our karma which decides our fortune. As rightly said, ” As you sow, so shall you reap.”
