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.
Bhadra Yoga – This is the second among Panch Mahapurush Yoga. This yoga takes place when the Mercury is strong and placed in the Cardinal house of a vedic astrology birth chart. The Mercury owns Gemini and Virgo zodiac signs and is exalted in Virgo zodiac sign.
Therefore, if Mercury is situated in any of the cardinal houses of the vedic astrology birth chart in Gemini or Virgo zodiac sign – it will create the Bhadra Yoga. The person born in Bhadra Yoga is said to be very intelligent, kind-hearted, learned, wise, having independent ideology, balanced and attractive physique and courageous.
However, the strength of the yoga will also depend upon the influences of other planets over the Mercury. If the Mercury is creating Bhadra yoga and is devoid of any influence of any other planet in vedic astrology horoscope, full results of Bhadra Yoga will be there. If, such Mercury is under benefic influence, the positive results will be more pronounced and appear in early years of life. While, if such Mercury is under negative influence of malefic planets, then the positive results of Bhadra yoga will not be permanent.
Given below are some famous vedic astrology horoscopes in which Bhadra Yoga is generated due to strong placement of Mercury.
