Let’s discuss some other methods of future predictions from gender Varga of the Nakshatra. While matching the Kundalis if the bride’s Nakshatra is feminine and the grooms are masculine then the couple will get wealth and assets. But if the bride’s Nakshatra is masculine and the Nakshatra of the groom is masculine gender then the married life may not be happy and peaceful.

If both the bride and the groom have feminine Nakshatra then there is a probability of a lot of wasteful expenditure. Astrology says that it is very auspicious if the bride and groom have neutral Nakshatra.

Along these lines if the groom’s Nakshatra is a neutral gender and the bride’s Nakshatra is a feminine one then it is considered uneventful and the couple receive standard financial benefits.

By following these principles of Vedh Varga one may have a happy and peaceful married life.Gender matching is one of the Dasa Koota matchings, in south Indian marriage matching and there are thirty-six points allocated for Guna matching.

It is not possible to match all thirty-six Gunas but the more the Gunas match, the better it is for the couple getting married. The minimum requirement of points is eighteen and above.

Guna matching for marriage is one aspect, there are other aspects which should be carefully analyzed while analysing a match for marriage. An expert astrologer’s advice should be solicited to finalise a match as it is a matter of life long union.
