CosmiTec's Love Letter, Issue #080 --Ashtakoot Compatibility
July 21, 2011
From now on we will use an additional technique in our monthly love forecasts. It's a method that we already use for long when we assess natal charts. The method is based on the ancient Babylonian 30° stack.

Love Forecasts for August 2011The Sun at 9° Leo squares Jupiter at 9° Taurus around August 1. You are very confident and tend to overdo especially in financial matters. You may experience a lot of joy if you are born around January 25, February 23, March 25, April 25, May 26, June 26, July 28, August 28, September 28, October 28, November 27 or December 26.
Mercury stations around August 3 at 1° Virgo and starts its backward movement till August 27. If you are born under the zodiac signs of Gemini or Virgo or if your Ascendant is Gemini or Virgo, you better slow down a bit as things are not really going fully in your favor. You may withdraw and need some time to ponder on your own.
Around the same day of August 3, Mars enters emotional and vacillating Cancer, resulting in home-bound and domestic activities. If you need to do some home-improvements, now is the time.
Retrograde Neptune enters Aquarius again and is still in a difficult and chaotic borderline position.
Around the same day of August 5, Venus at 9° Leo squares Jupiter at 9° Taurus. Actually, because Venus is the dispositor of Jupiter (Jupiter is in Taurus which is ruled by Venus), there are financial expenses. You don't have a clear and realistic view on your possessions and may be in for a surprise.
In matters of love, you may currently see it too rosy. Love may cost you an arm and a leg ;-)
Retrograde Mercury enters playful Leo around August 8 and loves a party and some drama. Enjoy going to a theatre, a comedy or a concert. In fiery Leo, Mercury is more noisy and loves a chat.
However, because Mercury also opposes Neptune, there is likely going to be lots of miscommunication or non-communication -- possibly due to the noise. Slapstick humor works best around these days.
Between August 9-11, Mars at 4° Cancer builds up heat and tension when it first squares Uranus at 4° Aries (around August 9) and then opposes Pluto at 5° Capricorn around August 11. This is a very fanatic combination of pushing through one's religious or idealistic ideas and points of view. There is a highly explosive and aggressive atmosphere noticeable in this time frame and this combo is also related to physical injuries for lots of people. You better watch out!
The Full Moon of August 12-13 will bring some love encounters and romantic moments if you are born around February 8, March 25, May 10, June 26, August 12, September 28, November 12 or December 26.
August 14 is a lovely day if you are born around this day, April 10-11 or December 13. You are favored too if you are born around January 11, February 9-10, March 11, May 11, June 12, July 13, September 13-14, October 14 or November 13. Enjoy a party or any other festivity.
Around August 16, the Sun and Venus conjoin at 23° Leo, resulting in a powerful combination of playful love. Mercury will also conjoin Venus around August 17 and the Sun will follow immediately after it. This will be a funny time for some of you.
However, if you are born around December 30-31, February 12-13, March 29-30, May 14-15, June 30-July 1, August 16-17, October 1-2, November 16-17 or December 30-31, you better watch out for disputes that may get out of hand and/or physical injuries. There are very disruptive and challenging configurations going on, so try to keep your head cool and, above all, mind your words. It's an accident-prone period for you between August 16-18.
Venus at 29° Leo opposes Neptune at 29° Aquarius around August 21, resulting in love's sorrow and sadness. The 29 degrees often mark endings, and this will be no exception here when the planet of love at an ending degree opposes dissolving Neptune. This is a combo of farewell and unfulfilled longings towards an absent loved one.
Venus enters shy Virgo around August 22 and is in a very subordinate (and submissive) position.
The Sun at 29° Leo opposes Neptune at 29° Aquarius around August 23 just before it will enter Virgo on the same day. Someone is absent (often a male person because of the Sun).
Around August 25, Mars at 14° Cancer squares Saturn at 14° Libra signifying emotional and upsetting moments of anger.
Mercury stations around August 27 at 18° Leo; ready to move forward again. The silence is over and your mind will clear up. However, if you are born around this day, January 24, February 22, March 24, April 25, May 26, June 25, July 27, September 27, October 27, November 26 or December 25-26, you may be in for unexpected surprises. Don't trust any electronic gadgets or computers, nor public transportation services as there may be some limiting influences going on.
Jupiter stations at 10° Taurus around August 30 and starts its retrograde motion. If you are born under the zodiac sign of Sagittarius or if your Ascendant is Sagittarius, life may not alwyas go as smoothly during the station. You will need some more patience.
Beware of promises or expectations that may not be delivered. Things and people may seem too beautiful, too nice, to xxx (just fill in) to be true.

Ashtakoot CompatibilityIn India, matchmaking with the help of astrology is a daily business and routine. Seldom, a couple is married without consulting an astrologer. Different methods are used but one of the most common ones is called Ashtakoot or Ashtkoot matching/compatibility.
Because Vedic, Hindu or Indian astrology is primarily Moon-oriented, basic compatibility is found in matching the Moon position of the partners. However, in real traditional Vedic astrology, this method is not the first an astrologer will apply. Oddly enough, any serious Vedic astrologer will first analyze the natal charts for
Now, that's quite a difference with our Western astrology!
In India, matching is a real time-consuming process of drawing and delineating numerous charts. Something that cannot be done by novices.
As always, when things become too time-consuming and complicated, more vulgarized, simplier and easier methods enter the public domain. Sun sign "astrology" in the Western world has taken over real astrology.
And so it happened that Ashtakoot Compatibility became the only tool or method in the Western world to match charts the Vedic way.
This does not mean that Ashtakoot Compatibility is worthless. On the contrary! It's just one single method that, because of its simplicity, became the single most used method.
In some cases, Ashtakoot compatibility is also called Kuta matching or agreement. In yet other cases, it's called Guna matching or Poruttham agreement.
What is this method all about?
Actually, the two natal charts of the partners are analyzed for compatibility regarding 8 factors. Each factor gets a score. The higher the score, the better.
The total score for all 8 factors cannot exceed 36. A total score of 36 would mean perfect compatibility while a score of 18 is problematic.
Sometimes you will read about 10 (porutthams or kutams) or 12 factors, depending on the source but we'll keep it to the easiest method that consists of 8 factors.
These 8 factors are:
So, if you notice a low total score, this is not alarming but it points to some disharmonious factors that need to be worked on. If you have a very high score, it will not necessarily presage a happy marriage at all.
The bottom line is that Ashtakoot Compatibility has its merit IF you take other methods into account too.
