They believe that it is better to check the compatibility between the couple than to tie them in a toxic nuptial bond. For the same Ashtakoota Guna Milan System is considered. It is made sure that a favorable score occurs when the match making of the couple is done.

Let us see what Varna Koota and Vashya Koota mean in Kundli Milan of two natives.
Varna Koota, as per horoscope matching, is the calculation of the person’s Varna— type, caste, or order. It greatly helps to figure out the compatibility between the bride and the groom.
As per Vedic astrology, there are four classes of Varnas and involve zodiac signs as follows:
- Brahmins— These are known as the literate class and involve Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces zodiac signs.
- Kshatriyas— These natives are known as the warrior class. The zodiac signs that come under this category are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.
- Vaishyas— These are the trader class, and Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn zodiac signs fall under this category.
- Shudras— They are known to be the unskilled class. The signs that come under this category are the Gemini, Aquarius, and Libra zodiac signs.
Along with it, people can calculate Varna Koota by many methods: Moon Rashi calculation, Navamsha Moon calculation, Lagna (ascendant) calculation, and Moon’s Nakshatra calculation. One can get their Kundli matching at Astrotalk and know their compatible partner in the most precise manner.
According to Kundli’s analysis, Brahmins are known as the most superior of all the Varnas. On the other hand, the Shudras are considered to be the most inferior. But, many astrologers say that spirituality also plays a vital role in its determination. Brahmins depict their spirituality by worshiping God, Kshatriyas use action, Vaishyas illustrate it by trade and dealings, and Shudras perform work by tradition.
Generally, astrologers at Astrotalk consider the Moon sign of the person when figuring out the Varna Koota in Kundli Milan. Also, it is said that the Varna of the male must be equal to or higher than the female. Plus, if the Varna of the female and the male is equal, the match is considered auspicious for marriage.
Vashya Koota specifies the love compatibility between the male and female. Also, it illustrates the dedication and devotion both the individuals shall put into their marital life. As per Vedic astrology, there are 5 types of Vashya Koota or animals:
- Chatushpada or four legged-animals: It includes the Aries and Taurus zodiac signs. Also, the first half of Capricorn and the 2nd half of Sagittarius fall under this category.
- Nara or two-legged animals: This category includes the Cancer and the Pisces zodiac sign. Moreover, the 2nd half of Capricorn lie under it.
- Jalachar or water dwellers: Caner, Pises, and 2nd half of the Capricorn sign fall under this category.
- Vanachar or wild beast: Only people with the Leo zodiac sign could be of this Vashya.
- Keeta or insects: Scorpio sign natives may have the Vashya Koota.
According to Astrotalk Astrologers, for possessing great compatibility, the Moon sign of both the individuals must have the same Vashya Koota. However, there are some more rules to the same:
- When an individual possesses Chatushpada, Manava, or Jalachar Koota, he/she shall belong to the Vanchara group.
- If the native has Chatushpada, Jalachar, or Keeta Vashya, he would belong to the Manva group.
- Possessing the Jalachar sign is known to be the meal of the Manav signs. Moreover, having the Chatushpada sign is said to be the food of the Vanchara Vashya Koota.
