Tips from Vedic numerology on Valentine’s day!


With Valentine’s day just a few hours away, I thought of writing about one of the tenets of Vedic astrology that helps in identifying whether a person whom you like will be actually compatible with you.

There is something called the “Maitri charka” that describes 8 types of people by way of 8 animals based on which one can know whether a person will really live up to be a 'mithra', a friend or a bitter enemy or a neutral one with whom you may not have problems.

This charka has application in friendship matters, in business partnership and of course in love and marriage relationship.

The 8 animals are paired as representing the opposite arms of the Maitri charka, indicating bitter enmity.

For example

Garuda x snake
Cat x rat
Lion x elephant
Dog x Rabbit

The 8 animals are placed from east through 8 directions as shown in the picture below.

To know if one will be friendly with you, you have to first know which animal represents your name. Then know the animal represented by your friend’s name.
If the two animals are in opposites, you can expect troubles in relationship.
If they are same, there will be good matching of minds.
If they are natural friends, there will be friendship.

This is how the calculation is done:-

Count the number of letters and multiply it by 7. Then divide the outcome by 8. The resultant number is counted from east (garuda) in the Maitri charka.

If the remainder is 1 – garuda (E)
If it is 2, cat (SE)
If it is 3, lion (S)
If it is 4, dog (SW)
If it is 5, snake (W)
If it is 6, rat (NW)
If it is 7, elephant (N)
If it is 0, rabbit (NE)

Originally the name letters in Sanskrit were used in this charka.
Suppose the name is Deepa, it has 2 letters in Sanskrit.
2 x 7 = 14 / 8 = 1 (Remainder -6)
6 means rat. Rat has enmity with cat.
Persons with name numbers coming as 2 will not go well with them.

Nowadays, the practice is to count the letters in English and other languages too.
Here the method is to count the number of letters, multiply it with 10 and divide the outcome by 8.


If Deepa and Nithya want to be business partners, count their name numbers.

Deepa =5 x 10 = 50 / 8 = 6 (R- 2) - cat

Nithya = 6 x10 = 60 /8 = 7 (R-4) -dog

Cat and dog are not opposites in the Maitri charka but they hate each other.

This means there will be enmity between them. They will try to outwit each other and go well.

In this way the compatibility and friendship can be known from the relationship between the 8 animals.
Same number persons will have good understanding.
Opposite numbers do not make them see eye to eye.
Other numbers are acceptable, but the way they relate to each other is determined by the nature of relationship between the animals representing their names.

Vedic astrology uses the 8 animal – characteristics at other places too – in identifying the city where one can flourish and in identifying the part of the city where one can settle down and lead a peaceful life.
We will see them in future posts.

Hi Jayasree,
I have been reading your blogs for a while. At a time when Hindu dharma is facing serious threats from other religious conversions, you are doing wonderful job by posting articles such articles.

Hindu dharma is not philosophical, it is also scientific.

Please continue your service.

Really fantastic your post. I look forward to future posts.

In common usage, horoscope often refers to an astrologer's interpretation, usually through a system of Sun sign astrology or based on calendar significance of an event, as in Chinese astrology.

Thanks for sharing,
