Hey Bees! I’m a Canadian girl marrying an Indian guy and we need to get our astrological charts done based on the Hindu calendar to see if we’re a good match and to find an auspicious day. We’re having trouble finding someone in our area (Toronto.. crazy right) to do them.
If you’ve had your charts done and can forward me info it would be so appreciated! I really want to nail down a date soon!
Thanks in advance!

bunny163 : Hi there! Initially, we got ours done informally through a website. There are a lot of free ones online, for example: http://www.astrosage.com/freechart/matchmaking.asp. Both of you will need to know the exact time at which you were born.
After that my FI’s mom consulted her family’s own personal priest to “confirm” the results and it turned out the priest deemed us a great match, which was a huge sigh of relief for everyone, since our marriage is “inter-caste”. Does your FI’s parents know of anyone? Ask them to ask their family friends -these things usually spread by word of mouth only.
Picking a date was really difficult for us because not only did we have to check each other’s personal schedules, both his family and my family had certain religous “black out dates” on which no marriages could occur. In particular, my Fiance is South Indian Tamil, and in his family Saturdays are considered inauspicous. In the US, however, Saturday is prime wedding day. So we ended up compromising and are having two ceremonies – a Tamil one on Friday morning and an Indian-American one on Saturday afternoon followed by a combined reception.
