None of us are strangers to the phenomenon that has taken over an entire nation - Virushka; a word that has been shipped harder than the Titanic ever did! But, what really interests me, as an ordinary woman living in an extraordinary world, is the wonder and amazement behind the amount of goals we’re pinning on Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma. Why indeed is every individual - man, or woman; teenager, or senior citizen - going crazy over the couple? They’re not even remotely related to anyone. Truth be told, no other celebrity wedding created this amount of a buzz; I doubt even Prince William and Kate Middleton ever did!
Here’s the thing though; the two individuals work. It’s like one of those cosmic connections that are just meant to be and the whole world around you can see it so evidently. No wonder it’s become a love story for the nation! They didn’t even need a reality show to proclaim it.
I got two astrological experts - Paarul Chand, Tarot Reader and Mrs. Shelly Maheshwari Gupta, Astro numerologist/ Tarot /Vastu Expert - to weigh in on why Virat and Anushka work, as a couple; why their relationship remains one to look up to like none other and what could possibly in store for them in the near future.
Read on to know what they have to say about ‘Virushka’ and why their relationship works like no other.
Anushka is a Taurus. Born on 1st May, this 29-year-old, is an independent, emotionally strong and realistic, intelligent woman.
Virat, as a typical Scorpio, wants a partner who will match his strength, passion and creative nature. And where better would he find it, but in a girl like Anushka, who has the most ‘bindaas’ attitude.
“Astrologically, a Taurus woman compliments a Scorpio man. Both like their privacy and have tried to keep their affair out of public gaze. That could be the reason for a quiet wedding,” explains Gupta. “The Taurus knows how to handle a Scorpio’s changing moods and it’s why they both gel well together.”
“The grounded Anushka is opposite to the impulsive Virat and so she prevents him from taking hasty decisions. Anushka’s realistic side has balanced Virat’s emotional one, which is the basis of their compatibility,” Gupta further explains.
For Scorpio and Taurus, compatibility is desperately dramatic, hauntingly intense and poisonously potent. These two signs are opposite one another in the zodiac and in theory they fit very well together, like two halves of a heart. Anushka & virat as Taurus& scorpion can combine to make a whole, each partner's strengths balancing the other's weaknesses.
“Anushka as a Taurus is ruled by Venus (Love and Money) and Virat as a Scorpio is ruled by Mars (Passion) and Pluto (Power). This combination is very intense, thanks to Pluto’s influence, but it’s an excellent balance of masculine and feminine energy. Scorpio and Taurus together form the basis of all love relationships — love and passion. Venus and Mars go well together; Venus is about the beauty of romance and Mars is about passion of romance,” says Gupta.
As per the tarot cards read by Chand, for Anushka Sharma, her marriage to Virat Kohli is the result of a strong karmic connection. She views Virat as her destiny and soulmate; though she is also well aware of the amount of work she still needs to put in, in order to keep the relationship balanced and steady.
For Virat Kohli, his relationship and equation with Anushka is a the result of a strong wish come true of wanting someone in his life with whom he can truly be himself. “She is also a reminder of the best from his past relationships. These are not necessarily romantic ties; but also stems from a strong relationship in general - a family member or close friend that had a great deal of influence on Virat,” reveals Chand.
Force Of Attraction
What draws them together is a strong quality of empathy for others and it wouldn’t be surprising if they went to the extent of starting a social enterprise together. They both came to each other, as per the cards, having chosen to walk away from a previous relationship that wasn’t working and a hard decision to move on was taken. Of course, this led to both of them finding in each other the relationship they wanted.
Out of the two, Anushka is the stronger person in the relationship, she is able to balance out the mercurial and highly emotional nature of Virat. Virat, contrary to public perception, also likes his alone time and Anushka who is able to give him just that.
The Initial Phase
The first 6 months of their marriage will be challenging and both will have to learn to look the other way about the daily irritants of living together. Both will need to imbibe the characteristics of the ‘ Fool’ card of the tarot which signifies stepping out with an attitude of faith, trust and playful innocence.
Their marriage will fully stabilise by 2019 end and that will mark a new joyous phase of their marriage that will set the foundation of a long term marriage. They have drawn Ace of Cups for the 2-year marriage mark; this is the marriage card of the tarot that shows the cup of marital happiness running over.
What’s the best aspect of the Anushka (Taurus) and Virat (Scorpio) relationship?
“Their powerful connection that can shine when obstacles to intimacy are cleared away,” Gupta quips. “When Scorpio realizes that Taurus is there for the long term and won’t create the misery that some Scorpios attract to their lives, this relationship can blossom.”
Taurus and Scorpio are both Fixed Signs. This means they’re both pretty stubborn and resolute once their minds are made up. “Let’s hope their minds agree—if not, they’re prone to fights the likes of which neither experiences with any other Sign,” Gupta says.
She further adds that “These partners must learn to discuss their views and needs openly and to reach a compromise if they want their union to be lasting and happy. This largely depends on Scorpio’s ability to learn to trust Taurus.” The relationship will only fail, Gupta informs, if the two partners truly cannot overcome their opinionated, fixed stances.
According to oastrologer, Acharya Vinod Kumar Ojha, "As per the planetary study, both Virat and Anushka have manglik dosh and thus the dosh gets cancelled." Acharya Vinod Ji advices the couple to perform Ganpati Puja to maintain love and trust in the life and to continue with a happily married life. "Thus, we see that marriage will boost their prospects and make their life happier. Their marriage will be lucky," he concludes.
“I don’t see a child in the picture in the first 2 to 3 years of marriage. They are also lucky for each other money wise, and so, any venture they put their name to jointly will do well,” says Chand.
Both their careers will also continue to grow well, with Anushka choosing to do more production work; maybe ever directing. “Virat will do exceptionally well; but, he should guard himself from any kind of gossip against him,” she reveals.
To protect themselves and their relationship, Chand suggests the couple try and do some meditation with a special focus on the third eye chakra.
“Their guardian angel is Raphael,” says Chand. “This means that they can meditate on the colour green, or wear the colour to channel the energies of Archangel Raphael for health.”
Looks like Virat and Anushka were, indeed, meant to be. And while we’re no experts on what’s in store for the couple in the future - we’re mere mortals like that - we do wish the couple all the happiness in the world. If the tarot predictions are anything to go by, it’s going to be the journey of a lifetime!
