In continuation to my previous article on Yogas:

Slokas 14 to 18 of Phaladeepika mentions about Yogas based upon mutual disposition of Sun, Moon and Jupiter.

Mahabhagya Yoga: This yoga is defined separately for both male and female as per which the following four conditions should be addressed in the chart of a male:

  • The birth should be falling in daytime, specifically between the Sunrise and Sunset.
  • The Ascendant sign (Lagna rashi) should be odd i.e. the birth should be falling in Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius or Aquarius Ascendant.
  • The Sun should be placed in odd signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius or Aquarius)
  • And, the Moon should also be placed in odd signs.

In case of female horoscope, the following conditions should be fulfilled:

  • The birth time should be falling in night, specifically after Sunset and before Sunrise.
  • The Ascendant sign (Lagna rashi) should be even i.e. the birth should be falling in Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn or Pisces Ascendant.
  • Both the Sun and the Moon should be placed in even zodiac (rashi)

Results:      The person (Male) born with Mahabhagya Yoga will be pleasant and good looking in appearance. He will be kind and pure at heart; will be famous and fortunate; and, will own lands. Female born with Mahabhagya Yoga will bear good character and high moral values; will be very fortunate and wealthy; and, will have the happiness from husband, sons and grandsons.

Gaj Kesari Yoga:      If the Moon is in Kendra (angular position) from the Jupiter in a horoscope (Lagna Chart); it will generate Kesari Yoga (also known as Gaj Kesari Yoga). Continue reading »

In vedic astrology, the term “Yoga” implies a specific combination and/or disposition of planets which are supposed to generate specific results for the nativity. And, these Yogas can be good as well as bad; for example, there are good yogas like Dhana yogas (related to Wealth) or Raj Yogas (related to Power and Authority) Yogas; and, there are bad Yogas like Daridra Yoga (Poverty). Sometimes, one may get confused or delighted when the astrologer, whom he or she is consulting, comes up with such terminology like, “there is a Dardira Yoga in your horoscope” or like, “you are having a Raj Yoga”. And, if you take this seriously, you may lack in proper understanding of your horoscope. I, personally, avoid using such terminology in my consultations; and, instead, try to offer a clear perspective on specific aspects of horoscope like Marriage, Profession, Finance etc.

The primary objective of these terms, ‘Dhana Yoga’ or ‘Raj Yoga’ etc. is for learning purpose; while, for a layman seeking astrological advice, use of these terms should be kept as minimum as possible. This is so because it works more towards in generating a happy or sad feeling (depending upon which type of Yoga is present in your horoscope); while, this may not serve any significant purpose on practical grounds. Like, you may be looking to know about professional prospects of your horoscope. On ground level, the prominent and practical questions, which needed to be addressed, are related to stability, security and growth in profession. And, for addressing this, one may need to be specific both in questions as well as answers. The appeasement therapy of showering good looking words like you have a Raj Yoga or Dhana Yoga may, sometimes, also create unwarranted problems; and, except a happy feeling (which may not sustain longer), nothing much can be achieved.
