The Missing Tara Element

By Kshitij Sharma, January 8, 2007

I get a lot of queries about the Tara element and why it is not being displayed in the Guna Milap applet. This element is not missing in the overall computation that is finally displayed as Nakshatra match. I just did not code it because it is one of the not-so-important fields unlike Graha Maitri, Bhakoot or Nadi Dosha. It is supposed to give good health and longevity to the partner, but these are some of the factors must be judged not from this field, but from the chart itself. We cannot expect a person with alpayu, as indicated by the chart, living to an old age just because he/she is married to a person and Tara contributed the maximum allowed value of three points in their horoscope match.

Therefore, if you do not see Tara in the chart, it does not necessarily mean that it contributes zero points.

As compared to a lower value, a higher value in Guna Milap neither indicates a better relationship, nor indicates a happier married life for the life span of the couple. Factors like alpayu and periods of health problems, financial duress etc. can bring lot more stress in the married life of a couple than what we comprehend, anticipate, and acknowledge. I have always maintained that predicting this is a job of an experienced astrologer with a human touch.

    if tara match is of maximum 3 points, my match with my fiancee shows 20 points in tara. How?

    If we have jupiter in the same one as Ravi (Sun) then it isn’t manglik is it ? Does your software account for that ? It dosen’t seem to. Check for this eg. time 08:01 AM chennai and date is Dec 27th, 1976.

    Please email your comments to me as well.

    iam very impressed by ur software.and it helps a lot.but i have one general one instance when i matched two charts i got a score of 31.but i saw one more site based on chinese astrology

    it has a range of -8 to +8.i got a score of -3 for the data.which is not good according to chinese astrology.

    so wht should i base on.i agree vedic astrology is very old and standard.but how could the results vary when both are based on planets and constellations.

    Thank you for providing this wonderful online horoscope matching service. Just wanted to point out a typo on the below link – maximum points is 36, not 38 as you have indicated in the line “For a 100% match, the value would be 38”.

    Please do correct when you get a chance. Thank you.

    Hi khitij

    I happened to check the horoscope for marriage compatibility.
    the timezone I used is 5-30E for hyderabad. a leading astroleger here is using timezone value 5.5 E.
    the matching I did using 5-30E showing the bride as manglik while the matching with 5.5E TIMEZONE shows girl as non manglik.
    I ask you please clarify the exact value of timezone to be entered is 5.5E or not. the point is 30=0.5 bt decimal system.

    Hello Sir,

    I have a question for you regarding same nadi and its effect on progeny. My husband and I are happily married for last four years. It was a love marriage and we did not check our kundali for the same reason. Recently I came across some discussion about nadi dosha and that it creates problems related to progeny. Out of curiosity I checked our birth charts and turned out that both of us have ‘Antya’ nadi and that our guna are really low for a match to be considered. I am not concerned about the compatibility part as we know after four years that we are a good match for each other but I am a bit worried about the same nadi. Can we have a healthy child according to our kundali match? Will there be a problem of any kind? If so, is there any remedy? Here are our birth details:

    Birth date: 7th May 1982
    Birth Place: Jalgaon, Maharashtra
    Birth Time: 10:55 am

    Birth date: 2nd May 1982
    Birth Place: Mumbai, Maharashtra
    Birth Time: 2:10 pm

    I will really appreciate your reply.

    Thank you.
