In Indian Vedic Astrology, the five planets other than the  luminaries namely, the Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn creates Panch Mahapurusha yoga.  The great combination i.e yoga takes place when any one of these planets is strongly placed in cardinal houses of the vedic astrology horoscope. There are four cardinal houses namely the first , fourth, seventh and tenth Bhava.

Panch, is a hindi term which means five and Mahapurusha means great human.  Therefore, when anyone of these above stated planets is strong and is also placed in cardinal house of a vedic astrology birth chart, one of the Mahapurusha yoga will take effect.

Hamsa Yoga – This is the third among Panch Mahapurush Yoga, the first two yogas being Ruchak and Bhadra Yoga.  Hamsa or Hansa yoga takes place when the Jupiter is strong and placed in the Cardinal house of a vedic astrology birth chart.  The Jupiter owns Sagittarius and Pisces zodiac signs and is exalted in Cancer zodiac sign.

Therefore, if Jupiter is placed in Sagittarius, Pisces or Cancer zodiac sign and at the same time also placed in any one of the cardinal houses of the vedic astrology birth chart – it generates Hamsa Yoga.   The person born in Hamsa Yoga is said to be very attractive with prominent nose, highly virtuous and knowledgeable, learned, kind hearted, long lived, and very lustful.

However, the strength of the yoga will also depend upon the influences of other planets over the Jupiter.  If the Jupiter is creating Hamsa yoga and is devoid of any influence of any other planet in vedic astrology horoscope, full results of Hamsa Yoga will be there.  If, such Jupiter is under benefic influence, the positive results will be more pronounced and appear in early years of life.  While, if such Jupiter is under negative influence of malefic planets, then the positive results of Hamsa yoga will not be permanent.

In addition to this, the nature of Jupiter is also to be taken into consideration as per vedic astrology.  If Jupiter is lord of positive houses in the vedic astrology horoscope, it will give extreme positive results of Hamsa Yoga.  However, if Jupiter is lord of malefic  houses and creates Hamsa yoga –only partial positive results will be there.

Given below are some famous vedic astrology horoscopes having Hamsa Yoga generated due to strong placement of Jupiter.
