Compatibility between partners is a very significant point to consider before taking the plunge into marriage. To avoid broken marriages, check the zodiac signs and choose the right astrology advisors, says an expert.

Matchmaking Vedic Astrology has gained prominence lately as it offers various tools and remedies for promoting happy, prosperous and stable marriages.

The matchmaking astrology essentially deals with flawless and scrupulous matching of the birth horoscopes of the two concerned persons. Guna Milan, Manglik analysis, analysis of other Doshas and Yogas et al are some of its time-tested methods of astrology through which it provides its recommendation to be followed before finalising any matrimonial alliance.

Here are some tips by Punit Pandey, an expert at astrology site AstroSage.com, for a blissful married life:

Apart from zodiac signs, compatibility of several other elements is essential: Zodiac signs consist of only one aspect of Guna Milan or Vedic method of horoscope matching. Zodiac signs may indicate about basic inclinations and tendencies, but several other factors like birth chart and Dasha are required to be considered before predicting anything with greater certainty during the course of match-making for marriage.

Key points to consider while horoscope matching of the prospective couples: According to Ashtakoota system, there are eight different aspects that are judged during the matchmaking which include mental compatibility, sexual compatibility, understanding and behaviour. As per Vedic Astrology, all these aspects should be compatible for a peaceful, promising and enjoyable married life. All these different aspects hold different points summing up to 36 and minimum points required for an agreeable marriage to take place is 18.

Choosing the right astrology advisors: Marriage is an important milestone in one’s life and so, it should be done with proper understanding. The most pivotal thing to take care about is proper calculations and in-depth analysis. If these two things are taken care of, a good life is almost assured.

Nagpur: A seven day course in astrology and vastu shastra is currently underway at Kavi Kulguru Kalidas Sanskrit University at its campus in NIT Sankul, Sitabuldi. Some 40 students, otherwise pursuing different professions, are learning the nuances of this age old science from July 8 to 14. "Astrology is about human temperament and why people react to a situation in a particular manner. This knowledge is very useful to me in my profession as a counsellor," said Shweta Admane, who is part of the class. "There is no age or qualification criteria for this course as we are conducting them to spread awareness," informed KK Pandey who, along with Dinkar Marathe and Prasad Gokhale, are faculty of the university's astrology department. "Over the years, we were conducting such classes at seven different venues in the city. This time it has been consolidated," Pandey said.

Astrology has been confined to birth charts and predictions. That's just 10% of the science, the rest of it is astronomy and maths that is never discussed as it is of no use to common people," Pandey said. The seven day syllabus is designed to quell the curiosity and also to answer queries. "Astrology has got entangled in superstitions that create fear and exploitation of innocent people at the hands of unscrupulous astrologers," said Marathe. It also tells about weather, crops, natural disasters, animal husbandry and happenings in a nation, information about which could be culled from the panchang, he added.

"The module also has a section on vastu shastra that is related with jyotish and tells about combination of five elements and how they can work in coordination for positive results," Gokhale explains. "Knowledge of vastu shastra is essential in my field of work as people today want harmony of various factors," felt Dinesh Pathak, a civil engineer. "I am finding this class fascinating as ancient Indian astrology, astronomy and architecture are all connected. Studying it helps me learn how facts are derived," said young Anindo Ghosh, a graduate in Ayurveda.

Terming medical astrology as another interesting branch, Vinita Phatak, who is also teaching the group, said, "It can help predict if a person is prone to a particular disease. I feel it is a lifestyle science and can change the way we live by giving us the right picture and helping in course correction." And that's also the reason why palmist Gyanlata Gupta and astrologer Kalpana Pimple are attending this class. "This is a never ending study. This course has helped me connect palmistry with astrology," Pimple said.

A hospital in Buenos Aires is offering patients in its mental health department a workshop called "Knowing yourself through the stars," to help them treat conditions such as depression anxiety through an understanding of their astrological personalities.

That's despite the fact that there's no scientific evidence whatsoever that the way the stars are aligned when you're born influence your personality, or can predict future events or milestones in your life. (We hate to break it to you guys, but the Mercury retrograde isn't a thing).

The astrology workshop began in February this year, and runs for 90 minutes a week, with patients being referred by doctors at the Hospital Pirovano's Barrial Mental Health Program.

The workshop is led by astrologist Claudia Rico, and the basic premise is that she develops star charts for each patient and uses their horoscope to interpret life experiences both in the past and those that are 'written in the stars' for the coming month. 

"Emotions and feelings are mixed with astrology to help them understand the 'why' and the 'for what?' of every life experience, whether it was a good one or a painful one," Rico told Quartz. "Therapeutic astrology tries to generate a balance of the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of human beings."

For example, her guidance will be based on things like, whether someone is an Aries or Taurus, or what their 'rising sign' is.

Rico submitted her workshop program proposal in October 2015, and it was approved by the Coordinator General of the Barrial Mental Health Program in order to become an official treatment option.

Understandably, scientists are pretty outraged by the decision. Andrés Golombek, professor at the University of Quilmes in Argentina, told Quartz that the program was "absolutely dreadful".

"Astrology can be harmless, of course, unless it gives directions and instructions into how to proceed with, for example, an illness or medical treatment," he said. "And, indeed, having such a program organised by a hospital leads into the completely false assumption that astrology might have some kind of scientific background which, of course, it completely lacks."

"I am horrified by this prospect," he added.

So what's the problem? In theory, running a workshop that gets people talking about past experiences and preparing for the future isn't necessarily a bad thing, and thanks to the placebo effect alone, it could definitely prove beneficial to some patients.

But the issue is that astrology really doesn't have any scientific backing, and framing these workshops around the horoscope perpetuates the idea that, somehow, the alignment of the stars influences our lives, or can help people with serious mental health conditions.

Astrology is based on the idea that as Earth moves around the Sun in an elliptical orbit, the position of the Sun looks to us as though it passes through the 12 constellations that form the zodiac.

Your star sign is determined by which constellation the Sun was 'in' on the day you were born, and astrologers say this continues to influence your personality and behaviour throughout life. 

But despite repeated studies trying to back that up, there's no evidence that horoscopes have any effect on us.

Scientists have found that the time of year you're born can effect your healthand future allergies, but that has less to do with star signs, and more to do with Sun exposure here on Earth. It's thought that children who are exposed to more vitamin D during their last few months in the womb grow up to be healthier than those that are born during winter.

And while the roots of astrology might have some vague basis in science - it involves the movement of the Sun throughout the night sky - that 'science' is pretty old (2,200 years old, to be more specific) and your star sign is most likely wrong because of something called precession, which has altered the position of the constellations in our night sky.

Precession refers to the way Earth wobbles around its axis due to the gravitational pull of the Moon on Earth's equatorial bulge. And because of this wobble, over the past 2-and-a-bit millennia, the constellations alignment against the Sun's position has moved almost 36 degrees - meaning that the star signs we know and love are almost a month out.

So if you think you're an Aries, you're probably a Pisces, and if you're a Capricorn you're actually a Sagittarius, and if you think you're a Sagittarius, you're actually a 13th sign called Ophiuchus.

Of course, none of that really matters when horoscopes are viewed as little more than entertainment (is it that much worse than reading about the Kardashians?). But it's a problem when a medical hospital suggests that a better understanding of star signs might be a potential treatment for mental health conditions - which are already the most stigmatised and misunderstood diseases in medicine.

While the Hospital Pirovano hasn't officially responded to the complaints, a spokesperson for the Barrial mental health program told Quartz that the program was a community workshop rather than a form of professional psychotherapy. "Its goal is not to heal, but to provide support," they said.

Let's hope in future they can find a way to do that without relying on pseudoscience.
