Straight from the Love ‘Gurus’!

Posted on


Like every year, today, on the fourteenth day of the 2nd month of the year is being celebrated by world as the Valentine’s Day; a day to express their love, affection and friendship.

Since  the month of February is the  2 month  in the year cycle , Number 2 is ruled by the planet Moon, symbolizes our Emotions , Relationships, Thought process , Cooperation, and Communication – it’s a perfect choice to celebrate love.

Like on most vital things in life, romance and love life too account for a major share of our existence. Vedic Sciences too have a take on this. There is something called the “Maithri 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 Maithri 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.


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:-


  • 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)


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.




  1. If Bobby and  Eshha  want to be business partners, count their name numbers.


       Bobby   =5 x 10 = 50 / 8 = 6 (R- 2) – Cat


       Eshha   = 5 x10 = 50 /8 = 6 (R-2) – Cat


Relationship between Cat & Cat will be friendlier as per Maithri charka.


  1. If Sunnil & Kunal want to be business partners, count their name numbers.


Sunnil = 6 x 10 = 60 / 8 = 7 (R-4 )- Dog


Kunal = 5 x 10 = 50 / 8 = 6 (R- 2) – Cat

Relationship between Dog & Cat will be neutral.


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.
