Asta Koota is a method for partnership (or marriage) matching in Vedic astrology. It is based upon an analysis of the Moon positions of the couple.
Asta Koota should not be the only source for the judgment of partnership matching. Other important factors are
- The individual charts should be analyzed first. For example, if indications for separation are found, it is likely that the first partnership will not last forever.
- Mutual house positions should be considered, too. Especially the Moon, Ascendent and Venus are important factors
