compatibility of a young couple at a glance
Most people in our country believe in Astrology.
They make it a point to observe Astrological
guidelines in fixing times for all important events
in life and also in taking decisions on very vital
matters like marriage.
In countries in the Orient like Sri Lanka and India,
marriage is considered as something sacrosanct – an
inviolable sacred bond. People attach so much
importance to marriage; they look on one’s success
in marriage as one’s very success in life.
Therefore, even young couples in love, when it comes
to the question of marriage, would want to find out
whether their horoscopes are matching. They would
want an astrologer to match the `Porondamas’
(Astrological determinants of conjugal
compatibility) to ascertain whether their marriage
would be a success. Matching of `Porondamas’ which
people refer to as `Porondam Gelapeema’ in Sinhala’
is a widespread practice prevalent in our society.
However, there are certain astrological factors that
enable a quick and accurate appraisal of the
compatibility of horoscopes of a couple seeking
Following are some of the astrological factors that
serve as determinants of conjugal compatibility.
- Natives of Taurus, Scorpio and Aquarius
would make ideal partners of Aries, Cancer,
Libra, and Capricorn natives.
- Gemini, Libra and Aquarius natives would be
compatible partners for natives of fiery signs
of Aries, Leo and Sagittarius.
- Natives of watery signs of Cancer, Scorpio
and Pisces would make good partners for natives
of the earthy signs of Taurus, Virgo and
- Those born into fiery signs of Aries, Leo
and Sagittarius are not compatible with those
born into Watery signs of Cancer, Scorpio and
- The couple seeking matrimony would be an
ideal match of they have been born into the same
Lagna or if one person’s 5th sign happens to be
the other’s 9th or the 3rd sign is the other
person’s 11th sign.
- If the sign which Sun occupies in one
horoscope is the sign where Moon occupies in the
horoscope of the other, their marriage would be
a great success.
- If the sign in which Mars is posited in one
horoscope is the same where Venus occupies in
the other horoscope, their marriage would be a
lasting strong bond.
- Venus occupying a sign owned by Mars in one
horoscope while Mars occupying a sign owned by
Venus in the other horoscope is a favourable
position signifying a successful marriage. In
fact, two young people, a boy and a girl with
such a planetary position in their horoscopes
would fall in love at first sight, say
- Closer the Sun and Moon to Jupiter or Venus,
the better position is. It is favourable if they
are posited in trines to each other. If the Sun
in one horoscope is posited in conjunction with
Mars in the same sign as in the other’s
horoscope their union would be a success.
The most important thing to ascertain in
matching two horoscopes is whether the couple
seeking matrimony would remain devoted and
faithful to each other until death puts them
asunder. The other important factor that should
be determined is whether the couple is mentally
and physically fit to enjoy conjugal happiness.
Another important factor to be ascertained is
whether marriage would result in the birth of
