Also, the most important aspect of horoscope matching is the position of the moon in the bride and groom's horoscope. As per astrology, it is essential that the 36 aspects or the Gunas of the horoscopes be compared and the higher the number of matches in horoscopes means better the compatibility is and results in a happy married life. The minimum Gunas for marriage approval is 18 to 24 and anything less than that is a no-go.
