|Why do Indian Weddings Follow The Vedic Astrology? by parekhcards||30/07/2014 at 10:00|
The Indians are extremely spiritual, especially the Hindus. They have several ancient beliefs which they strictly abide by. Vedic astrology is just one of those beliefs. In many parts of India, any major decision in life is taken after meeting the Jyotish. Education and exposure has definitely changed this scenario but even today they rely on horoscopes to decide marriages.
The Basic Belief
According to the Vedic Shastras, the planets have a great impact on every aspect of our life. A bad impact of Mangal can ruin your entire married life. The different planets impact different aspects of your married life like health of the couple, wealth of the couple, happiness of the couple, togetherness of the couple and compatibility.

Matching Of Horoscopes
The horoscopes of the bride and the groom are considered for matching. After checking all the factors, if the number of factors that match are more then the marriage is considered ideal. If there is any 'dosh' in the horoscope of the bride or the groom, then they search for a mate with the same 'dosh'.
Birth Time And Date
The birth time and date decide the entire fate of a person. The horoscope of a person is made after considering the positions of stars and planets at the time of the child's birth. Even minute differences can completely change the fate in the horoscope.
The Modern Society's Outlook
The youth are not as orthodox as the previous generation. They are go-getters and do not believe in horoscopes. Love marriages are very common in the modern generation.
In many orthodox Hindu families, the horoscope has been the main cause of tension. It has also been the main villain in several love stories.
It is still not sure whether the horoscopes have any scientific basis. Orthodox Indians continue with the traditions while the youth act as trend setters.
