Significance of Yogini Koota in a Kundli

It has been a traditional practice in India to match the kundalis of the boy and the girl before fixing up the marriage. It is very important to know how the relationships between planet, sign and nakshatra are in the couple’s kundli and how they will affect the marital life of the couple.

The relationships of the above stated elements are emphasized in vedic astrology because vedic astrology considers that planets and other celestial elements have a strong influence on human life. A good relationship between the planets indicate that the relationship of the couple will be cordial and peaceful whereas a bad combination of the planets may be an indication of chaos and problems in the couple’s life. 

Nowadays life is stressful and the domestic life of a person also undergoes many ups and downs due to constant pressure. If a marriage is being fixed without judging the kundli of the couple, it is quite possible that a negative relationship between planet, yoga and nakshatra may cause problems. Astrology says that it will be best to determine whether the kundali is matching before holding the marriage.

Ashtkoota and Beeskoota

There are two types of kundli matching method in India. One is Ashtkoota (8 fold Koota) and another one is Beeskoota (20 fold Koota). Ashtkoota method is popular in North India whereas Beeskoota is widely used in South India. There are 8 and 20 types of koota in Ashtkoota and Beeskoota respectively. Yogini koota which is our topicof discussion is a part of Beeskoota.  Lets us discuss about the types of Yogini before discussing Yogini koota.

Types of Yogini

Astrology considers that there are 8 types of Yogini. These are Brahamani, Kaumari, Varahi, Vaishnavi, Mahendri, Chamunda, Maheshwari and Mahalakshmi.
All Yogini in the Yogini koota are placed in the north east direction. It is said that a Yogini is the lord of 3 nakshatras. A Yogini along with its nakshatra is placed in the east direction on the basis of a chakra. For example if Brahamani is the first Yogini and Ashwani the first nakshatra, they are placed in the same chakra and the cycle goes on.

As there are 27 nakshatra and 8 Yoginis. By placing 3 nakshatra with a Yogini Purvabhadrapada, Uttrabhadrapada and Revati nakshatras remain unplaced. These 3 nakshatras are again placed in the east direction to fall in the chakra of Brahamani, Kaumari and Varahi Yoginis.

After placing the nakshatra with the Yogini the couple’s kundli are judged. If the marriage muhurat contains the birth Yogini of the bride and the groom then it is considered as very auspicious for their marriage.

Similarly a different birth Yogini in the muhurat of a marriage indicates negative results in the life of the couple. It may cause problems in their married life.

Another interesting method recommends that is that 3 nakshatras left out after placing 3 nakshatra each in 8 Yogini are placed in to Vaishnabi Yogini. Astrology says that results are almost same in these two types of Yogini koota and people can use any of the methods to get results.
