These days almost everyone is looking at raja yoga in their horoscope (especially youngsters), and wants to know whether do they have any raja yoga in their birth chart or not, Or Whether they will be a Wealthy Personality ever???
Well, a wealthy personality depends on multiple factors, but if the question is related to the availability of raja yoga’s so my answer is “Yes”, Each horoscope having almost 60+ good or bad yoga (Many varieties) along with 10 major raja yoga’s, But as we know that Raja yoga has no guarantee in modern time due dependency on multiple factors, so let’s discuss raja yoga formation and manifestation.

As far as I know, Having Raja yoga in the birth horoscope is like buying an insurance policy, where output has been shown as big returns however when you claim that policy then the company applying several hidden terms and conditions, and only rare peoples getting full/partial returns.
The same happening with astrology yogas, there are so many big Yogas in astrology Granth (Classical Ancient Books) and the results are mentioned in classics are very alluring but when we expect an outcome then nothing comes in the result or sometimes they just giving false hope (Due too many hidden conditions a yoga could not qualify).
As we know each one wants easy and royal life, however it does not happen because a life of the humans are like mazes –
And maximum are lost in these life mazes only, they don’t know what should they do, Even sometimes finding no way, As each one having their own life pattern decided by destiny (Based on once Karma), each one has to find their life purpose and have to finish their life goal.
So in this confusing life, “raja yogas” act like a very supportive factor, And each one desires to have this support in their life, those have born in the rich family so life seems a little easy for them as they don’t face financial issues, however, those have born as lower or middle class, their life is the biggest challenge
Sages have narrated more than 1000+ Yoga’s (Good, bad and mixed) in astrology Granth’s (BPHS, Jaimini, JaatakaParjata, Brahad jataka and more) along with their outputs, however now the time has been changed and in modern times, maximum combinations do not work in the same way (We can’t say does not work, but my aim to say “their meaning and impact on human life has been changed according to time”).
See basically till now several hidden reasons I have found during my small journey in astrology, first of all so many Mughal emperors, British rulers attacked India and almost destroyed Indian culture and ancient Granth (Classics), otherwise, India was always ahead of all countries (Even till today we are ahead from all other countries in a matter of knowledge).
The second reason is, All the ancient classics were narrated in Sanskrit language and Sanskrit is a very limited word (Narrow) language however that limited words have been translated by many different peoples in their own language with their own included mind.
So overall, we can’t guarantee that whatever we are reading is complete knowledge of Astrology, Maybe the maximum portion of Granth either we have lost or never got translated (Or Maybe God knows full truth).
Time Transformation :
As Everyone knows, the Life of the person is associated with Dharma, Eartha, Kaam, and Moksha (4 types of Purusharth of human life) and during lifetime each one has to follow three only (Dharma, Earth, Kaam) because moksha comes after death and only possible when your deeds are up to the mark which means if you have fulfilled your wish (Kaam) and have earned Eartha (Wealth or money) by using Dharma (Religious path).
So here time transformation means “a yuga parivartan” as we are living in Kaliyuga however human life journey has started long ago from Sat yuga, Later Treta Yuga then Dwapar Yuga, and finally worse Kaliyuga has started, Satyuga was Purna (complete) satvik Yuga (Sinless time) where even common man can see god easily, So it would be better if we starting our discussion from Treta Yuga, however since Satyuga life was not same as in modern time.
Note: Kali Yuga is the last of the four stages the world goes through as part of the cycle of mahayugas (Time) described in the Sanskrit scriptures.
Life was quite limited in ancient times as there were no UK, USA, Canada, UAE or any other countries were existing, and all humans were associated and restricted with kings and kingdoms only, Or you can say it was the time of Rulers, Emperors, kings and their kingships as they were taking care of their peoples (Janta), however even local and common peoples having different lifestyle in that time and even meaning of luxury was different –
In ancient times, anyone who owned many horses, Carts, Elephants were known as the richest, the rest common public were serving these rich peoples (kings) as servants or as a part of an army.
And the situation was almost the same from Satyuga to Dwapar Yuga (Till Shri Krishna Was Alive), Kaliyuga time was started when Lord Krishna left the world.
Note: Youngsters are quite confused in among these words “Ruler, King and Emperors” but all three are bit same words but holds different meanings, as in ancient time kings means a wealthy person with the small kingdom, however emperor & Rulers words are the biggest form of kings (Means one who rules major area and having vast army (a real richest valorous personality).
Time was updating itself and the world was facing transformation, as till 18th century Kings and other such systems were existing in the world, however, post the 18th century, the time has started transforming itself into a digital world, and technologies have started entering into the human life.
However, with the time, kings, Ruler & emperors have also been replaced by political leaders, sportsman, celebrities, etc, So the overall meaning of Ruler, kings, and emperor has also been changed in modern time –
Now in modern era, a successful persons known as rich, wealthy and celebrities.
Overall, the great transformation happened after the 19th century as if world is changing then assets will also change, and as I said digitalization has started and entered in modern life which has changed living style of human being totally.
Previously measurement of property and other assets was different like it was the basis on lands, horses, carts, bulls, elephants, donkey (Overall Number of animals), So in previous time if anyone having many horses or elephants were considered rich and wealthy, however poor people’s using donkey and bull karts for their work, but all these things got vanished day by day and modern things have taken their places like –
Yes, in ancient time people using donkey (Poor people those couldn’t afford horses) to move one place to another but in modern time people (Poor’s) owns bicycle instead of a donkey.
Note: People living outside of India might be thinking that people using a bicycle for exercises also, however, I would like to let them know that people (those can’t afford bike and cars, etc.) in India still use a bicycle for transportation especially in a village area, So I am using this point in terms of affordability (not telling uses of the bicycle).
Even bullock cart etc. has also been replaced by trucks and tractors (One form of automobiles used in agriculture industry) and other goods carrying vehicles –
In old times, peoples using donkey and bullock cart as transportation of goods from one place to another place, Now let’s discuss public transportation of old-time,
In ancient time, Wealthy peoples using horses to go from one place to another, so in modern time such transportation has been replaced by the types of bikes –
Even horses still exist but you can found them in racecourses as they are no more part of modern transportation now, and there were also several varieties of horses which has been replaced by various motorbikes, even horse cart which were used for multiple person journeys, has been replaced by Auto Riskshaw, Taxi and even car cabs –
Even Kings and Emperors were using elephant for their luxurious transportation however queens were using Paalki’s, however all modern kings and emperors are using cars as luxurious transportation –
However, varieties of old luxurious transportation have also been replaced by varieties of cars.
As of now we have reached 2021 and I have described ancient to modern time updation till 2021, But what after 100-200 years when time is again going to update itself and when there will be no cars and no bikes, then what will be the mode of transportation???
I know the above image look like bit fictional, but who can predict future technology, if we are moving 400-500 years back when Mughal emperors were ruling India, (Take an example of Mughal King Akbar) in that time if someone telling Akbar that 400 or 500 year later people will use touch screen mobiles, google map to find addresses, will use flights to cross the ocean, will communicate through emails, will be able to talk anywhere in the world within a seconds, will use Video callings, and ATM machines to deposit and withdraw money, then Akbar along with his intelligent friend Beerbal will start itching their skulls.
So, whatever I am telling might be looking like science fiction but it is the biggest unavoidable truth of the future because even after 400-500 years’ entire world will change again.
And yes this transformation has already started, soon just after 20-25 years hypersonic technology will take over all Air Journey which will change the entire system as at present if you are traveling India to the USA so by air, it takes minimum 20-25 hours however after hypersonic technology implementation it will take just an hour, Apart from this Japan has already tasted flying cars (You can watch videos on youtube for this), At present we are just living and using 5-10% power of real technology, We can’t even think about a modern word (after 400-500 yrs).
And the only biggest drawback of the modern future is “Me & U both will not be alive to watch that complete Digital future”. LOL
I know you might be thinking that why I am portraying the history of 5000 yr back here and why connecting it with the modern future, and how it is related to astrology???
So, guys, all the ancient astrology Granth’s including BPHS was written 5000 yr back by Indian Sages and when we know that time has been changed, so why are we still using same old language or terms of ancient astrology till now????
Even whatever we have researched as a part of modern astrology will be old again after 400-500 yrs, because if after 500 years anyone (Astrologer) will be predicting like “This planetary combination will give you multiple cars” then peoples will start laughing at that astrologer because till that time cars, bikes, planes, etc would be old terms and even maybe vanished with time.
I hope you will understand why I have written so much about previous history.
If everything has changed so much then why not astrology???
Types Of Sambhandha :
As astrology system also required updation of terms and its language, So yes, I am going to update everything here in my article as per present time by using modern approaches.
Let’s start discussing on astrological parameters now –
In Vedic astrology, various planetary combinations have been described as yoga whereas Good combinations are known as Raja Yogas and Bad combinations known as Duryogas (Bad Yogas).
So let’s start with very basic question –
“How A Raja yoga forms in the horoscope”???
Basically “When two good planets associate with other, forms a yoga in the birth chart”, and when they are bad planets then it is known as some kind of duryoga (A Bad dosh).
Each yoga has its own importance and way of influencing life because as I said it all depends on the kind of association of involved planets.
Let’s describe meaning of “Association” in astrology yoga’s to understand it in more clear way –
As far as I know, there are four types of association that have been described in the astrology system to grab the results from raja yoga’s and these are –
- Mutual Exchange : When two planets are involved in sign exchange with each other known as the first-rate association of two planets, This is considered as a complete association (Purna Yoga or Full Yoga), Hence two planets exchanging their signs which means they are forming one complete association which will certainly affect your life doubtlessly, because the effect of such yoga comes by birth as any complete yoga never depends on Dasha and always activated by birth, Even if you are not getting Dasha of these planets in your life then too events related to these planets will come into your life, however nature of the planet and their role in the horoscope will describe whether they will bestow auspicious things or planning to give you pain, Basically this Sambandh also known as Parivartan yoga (Life changing yoga) because they are capable enough to change your life from good to bad or bad to good in any phase of life (Depends on involved planets).
- Mutual Conjuntion : When two planets sitting together in a particular house of the birth horoscope and closely associated (Degree wise), Yes, Degree has a vital role in conjunction, Actual conjunction happens at the same degree of both the planets, more degree gap makes effect lesser of the conjunction however result of such yoga comes with Dasha and after certain maturity level.
- Mutual Aspects : When two planets sitting opposite each other and aspecting each other via the 7th aspect (Here 7th aspect will be considered more powerful than special Drishtis because the 7th aspect is only called full Drishti) or getting connected via special Drishti’s, These types of association are required an equal effort to get output and mostly showing effect in the second part of life (after 30-35).
- One Way Relation : One planet is associated with another planet but that other planet is not associated with the first planet, Like Mars in the 10th house and Saturn is in the 5th house so Mars will aspect Saturn via its 8th aspect but Saturn has no relation with Mars, This is just signifying an influence of one planet into another which is affecting nature of the planet, however, this is not powerful due to one-way contribution.
So whenever two good planets causing the first type of association (Exchange) then it is Best Yoga, When two good planets involved in the second type of association (Conjunction) then it is better but less than the first one, When two good planets involved in the third type of association (Via 7th Aspect on each other) then it is good yoga but less from point number 1 & 2.
Overall the First one is Best, the second (Mutual Conjunction) is better, the third one (Mutual Aspect on each other) is Good and the fourth one (One-way connection) is considered as the weakest connection between two planets and less effective, Like if two Dhan giving lords are involved in the first type of association then they will make best Dhan yoga, but in conjunction, they will be better but a bit less then exchange… so in the same way 3rd and 4th point working as well….!!!!
Note: Good planet is not always meaning benefics only, lords of two good houses can also be a good planet like Kendra Trikona lords (that depends and maybe basis of ascendant to ascendant).
Apart from these four associations, there are few more yoga has been narrated in many ancient grantha’s like –
- Sun Yogas : Based on an association and placements of the planets around or with the Sun also known as solar combinations, like Veshi yoga, Vashi Yoga, Ubhaychari, etc…
- Moon Yogas : Based on an association and placements of the planets around or with Moon also known as lunar combinations, Like Sunapha, Anapha, Durudhara, Adhi yoga, and many more..
- Maha Purusha Yogas : Placement of five Major planets into their own or exaltation sign in Kendra houses.
- Nabhasa Yogas : There are 32 in numbers, Ashraya, Sankhya, Dala, and a few Akrities (shapes) in the sky also known as celestial combinations.
- Other Popular Yogas : which has no name and formed by certain planetary placement in a certain house or by the help of one or more planets.
Overall good yoga will be beneficial however bad Yogas will be harmful.
Few Tips Before Judgment :
So before discussing any raja yoga’s, I would like to tell you few points which are going to help you to manage your expectation with any raja yoga –
Tips -1 : Whenever you are judging any raja yoga then always start with country, culture, and Location first and try to predict accordingly.
Explanation: I would say not only in case of raja yoga but even judging any horoscope people needs to judge country and culture first because each country having its own living style and standard, which is affecting their residents also, like take an example of African peoples (Lagos, Western and Central Africa, etc.), they have totally different race and culture from us (Few living as tribal in pure Jungli style).
And you must be aware that there is one very famous yoga in astrology known as “Sumukh Yoga” and as per its definition anyone having this yoga in birth chart gets charming looks (Promises beautiful face as per classical text if fulfilling all required parameters), So can you think these people can produce kids like Katrina Kaif, Angelina Jolie, or Aishwarya Rai even after having pure strong Sumukh yoga in their birth chart??
So, answer is no, these people having their own meaning of beauty and living style :
They can be beautiful for themselves and for their peoples but not for others and I hope they also have the same feeling for different culture peoples because a couple there can produce kids of their race and culture only (culture means the kid will grow accordingly to the living atmosphere and going to adopt a style of the living country).
Take another example of most developed countries like USA, UK etc, they people don’t have a trend of arrange marriage as they prefer doing love marriages however Indian culture prefer to arrange marriage rather than love marriage (Now a day even in India followers of western cultures are much and even people doing love marriage also, however it was not too much before), So while doing marriage consultation you can’t treat all USA person like Indian and vice versa.
Because it does not mean all USA people having yoga for love marriage’s in their charts but it’s an influence of their race and culture or you can say the impact of USA lifestyle which you should keep in mind while doing marriage consultation of USA Couple (Because having multiple marriages, love marriage, extramarital, Gay or Bi Relations, these things are quite common there).
Another example is, how will you predict yoga for transgenders (Eunuch), they are also human and they also having yogas. But till now no eunuch is a celebrity… because it’s a difference of race again (Eunuch having pure different lifestyle & Living style even).
Tips -2 : All Yoga does not give money and Popularity, so keep your expectation with yoga accordingly so that it won’t disappoint you.
Explanation : Basically every person expecting money and popularity from all the Yogas however Remember all the Yogas are not the same because the combination for money is different (known as Dhan yoga’s in astrology) hence sages has narrated Dhan Yogas and other yoga separately with different-different names (Each name itself having a meaning).
Tips -3 : Each yoga acts in a different manner in personal and professional life and can’t give the same result to all ascendants.
Explanation : House Lordship of planets changing in each ascendant hence a yoga can’t give the same result to all ascendants.
Tips -4 : Each combination should be treated as good or bad yoga but not as raja yoga, all Yogas are planetary combinations, but all planetary combinations are not yoga.
Explanation : Refer horoscope examples session to understand it more.
Tips -5 : Any yoga repeating itself in D-1, D-9 and D10 is very imp.
Explanation : Any raja yoga which Is repeating itself in the multi-divisional chart like D-9, D-10 then it has surety for its fruits, another point is, If in D-1 Kendra trikona yoga available by two planets but in D-9 the same combinations are available by two different planets, and in D-10 it could be formed by another two planets so, in different Varga’s, a yoga forming planets are different but yoga is still same so you can say Kendra trikona raja yoga is available in D-1 and repeating in D-9 and D-10, Such yoga makes more sense.
Tips -6 : No matter how strong and positive Raja yoga you have in your chart, your entire life does not depend on single raja yoga, so never decide your life basis on one good or bad yoga.
Explanation : If single raja yoga can give everything then why destiny awarding with multiple Yogas in a birth chart so Rather than my explanation use your common sense to understand the above point.
Tips -7 : Raja yoga having many terms and conditions and all should be fulfilled and should be mapped with maha Dasha at the correct age otherwise it has no use.
Explanation : I mean to say, house placement, sign placement, Influence of another planet, the strength of the planet and much more (which require to decide actual strength and mood of the planet) and correct age means proper required age like a professional growth requires in mid-age of life, so such Dasha of yoga giving planet should fall In mid-age, or else it has no use if coming in early age when you are a kid or even in old age when you are about to leave the earth…!!!
Tips -8 : Whenever you get any bad yoga (Basically a dosh or a curse) available in your chart then don’t afraid and check saving factors available against that bad dosh.
Explanation : Saving factors mean benefic & good influences on bad yoga like Kendra Placement of the yoga causing planet, Bad Yoga Bhanga, etc…
One more point is, Bhanga does not mean you will not get the worse effect, it’s simple meaning is, after facing pain portion you may expect something good or amount of pain given by bad Yogas could be less if bhanga happening, like if anyone having Shakat yoga then look for Shakat Bhanga, if having arista yoga then look for arista bhanga.
But also, remember many bad Yogas having no cancellation policy like “PaapKartari yoga” (Paap means sins and Kartari means deduction, so It means due to your sins something good has already been deducted which can’t be recovered so don’t waste time in remedies for such yoga’s).
Tips -9 : There are many big Yogas in Vedic astrology which promises rulership of the entire earth as per its definition mentioned in classical texts, However in Modern times nobody can rule the entire earth.
Explanation : It was happening in Dwapar, Treta or Sat Yuga but not in Kaliyuga and why I am writing this point because in ancient time there were no country or visa system existing, however in modern time, now the earth has been divided into many countries which have their own rules and visa restriction for foreigners, as there are many Yogas in Vedic system and as per their results “Person can rule entire earth” but now it can’t be possible.
However, you could be famous worldwide for your work (Like Sportsman, film stars, POP Stars do), but fame is merely an influence, a person can’t change country rules Like Shahrukh Khan is the biggest Indian Superstar but still, he can’t give orders to officials of other countries if he is visiting other countries then he must have to follow country rules.
Even the president of the most powerful country USA (At present Donald Trump is president) can’t give order to the president of other countries which means he having command over Americans only, he can’t ask another country to follow his rules and regulations, so he also having a limit which he can’t cross.
So, in modern times, ruling a country is a Maximum Limit for Any Raja Yoga (the President and prime ministers of the countries having such power only). Overall, if rulership means “Ruling entire world so that entire world may follow your command (as happening in ancient time) then Sorry now, In Kaliyuga “No one can rule the entire earth”. (Applicable on all humans not on avatars), and your power and commands are limited to your country only.
Tips – 10 : Each horoscope having raja yoga but all are not born to be a king (this is what you must find out in your horoscope), because many combinations are merely a yoga, but not a raja yoga.
Explanation : As we all aware about three classifications of human living lifestyle (which is mostly based on bank balance) which are High Class, Upper Class, Middle Class, and lower Class, However, for all four categories planets are the same, even signs and houses are same, many people even after having many Yogas still living a normal and common life, So never depends on a single factor in the birth chart, when all yoga gathered then they make one life (If good Yoga’s are higher influencive then good life, if mixed then normal life, if bad are dominated then lower class and painful life).
Tips – 11 : No one has born with either Good Yoga’s or with bad yoga’s only, as all horoscopes are mixed with multiple Good and bad Yoga’s, Hence single factor or yoga can’t decide destiny path (You just have to short out and need to calculate their impact into your life).
Explanation : In modern time, single yoga is not a guarantee for getting higher professional status (as multiple factors working together then only one person reaching high in social life), as each horoscope is full with multiple yoga’s, hence remember single yoga can’t make you king and can’t give you name, fame and wealth everything, and the same time one bad yoga can’t destroy your entire horoscope…!!!
Tips – 12 : One of the biggest truth is, almost all astrologer saying in their books or articles that the Raja yoga giving planet should be exalted, strong, should be powerful in Shadbal, and should be placed in Kendra Trikona and should be away from malefic influence, But Trust me till now I have not found even single horoscope where everything is 100 perfect and even any kingly horoscope is not fulfilling all said parameters.
Explanation : Trust me till now I have not found even a single chart wherein all the planets are well placed, or all without afflictions, or all-powerful in Shadbal, or all nine planets are exalted, Then I don’t know when even incarnations do not have everything perfect then how common man can have???
As all successful persons having afflictions, badly placed planet or something negative along with required parameters, or you can say one yoga or one planet can’t fulfill all parameters as something will always be less (However once efforts towards life and aim may be fulfilling that gap).
Tips – 13 : Alone positive point about raja yoga availability in the birth chart is, “If its promising something in the charts and if Varga & Dasha, transit fulfilling that promise then they are enough capable to show its miracle at the last moment of age”, Overall Never expect anything from yoga before time, everything in the world has a time so Yogas as well.
Explanation : Atal Bihari Became Prime Minister at the age of 70 approx. Nelson Mandela became president at the age of 76 before this he was imprisoned for 27 years as who thinks to become president when he got imprisoned for 27 years???
Even the sun and moon have their own time, even they cant shine 24 hours or always, so there is a time for everything or for everyone.
Tips – 14 : A yoga delivers results as per promises in your horoscope, but they never promise to fulfill your expectations, because peoples always start expecting higher gains when they think that they have raja yoga in the chart.
Explanation : Must check the promises and set your expectations accordingly.
Tips – 15 : All yoga can’t be good for personal and professional life both, as few Yogas are just good for professional (Like NBRY, it good for professional life but can’t save personal life) however few works better in personal life but they can’t give equal rise in a professional field.
Explanation : Each yoga having a specific meaning and there are verities of yoga’s which are affecting a specific areas of your life, according to their karkatva, involved planets with specific houses giving a clue about it.
Tips – 16 : Never predict a horoscope just basis on yoga alone, as any good yoga or bad yoga just an added advantage and disadvantage for the involved planet.
Explanation : always judge complete horoscopes with all available and required parameters, I have seen in Mumbai, many astrologers predicting based on raja yoga only and giving false hopes to the clients like “you have NBRY and soon you will be the richest ruler”, so don’t believe in such bullshits, success does not come in one day.
Tips – 17 : Never ignore Chandra Kundli while judging any yoga along with the Lagna chart and verify it through Navamsa and other concern Vargas chart.
Explanation : Chandra Kundli or Moon chart having its own importance and having wide meaning in judgment, and Using a divisional chart may give you detailed study on any concerned topic.
Tips – 18 : Each planet is enough capable to give you anything…but one planet won’t give you everything (Hence astrology has sets of nine planets & sets of ruling sign along with twelfth houses, if one planet or one yoga can give you everything then there is no use of other planets which are forming other yoga’s in the charts).
Explanation : always judge complete horoscopes with all available and required parameters
Tips – 19 : Even Kuber yoga (Rahu placement in 3rd house) alone of Vedic astrology can’t make Kuber because Dhan yoga (Wealth signifying combinations) which are actually making a Kuber is the result of multiple factors available in the horoscope, but an alone factor of this yoga can’t make Kuber (Wealthy one).
Explanation : Lord Kuber is a lord of wealth in our Indian divine system, one who rules wealth apart from Maa Goddess Maha Laxmi, and placement of Rahu is associated with a wealth yoga known as Kuber yoga which means a rich personality, however in practical experience results are missing if you judge merely basis on the placement of Rahu in 3rd house, (now pls don’t forward me horoscope of Dheeru Bhai Ambani or other such horoscope stating that he has Rahu in 3rd house so he became Kuber (Richest), if you have such questions in mind then I will ask you to see other factors available in his horoscope which is equally contributing in their success equally, as I can show more than 100 horoscopes of common peoples who having Rahu in 3rd house and they are still moderately rich or living like the middle class, Overall don’t predict basis on a single factor or basis of single definition),
Let’s see another example of Indra Yoga (One of the luxurious yoga of Vedic astrology system), Indra means King of God means if anyone having Indra yoga in his chart so he should be equal to Indra (In the matter of wealth and power or should having all world luxury), however, if 20-30 % population of world having Indra yoga does not mean they all are born fortunate and enjoying life like Indra??
Answer is no, they are not..!!
See basically I am not degrading the meaning of raja yogas or any combinations, Hence I am still repeating my words “Single bad yoga can’t destroy your entire life and in same way alone one good yoga can’t give you everything (Making Kuber, Indra, Famous Kings, etc as these things require multiple supporting factors to be richest in modern time).
Tips – 20 : Your present life karma (Kriyaman Karma) equally affecting the power of bad or good Yogas, because life is based on destiny however base of the destiny is karma hence present life karma is very imp.
Tips – 21 : If one Yogas fail in the chart or are not fulfilling your wish then check what another yoga is doing in your chart (that’s the meaning of availability of 60 plus or more yogas in the birth chart).
Explanation : Yoga fails means like if they are forming any good yoga in the chart which promising higher profession success but you are not getting Dasha of the same planet which means yoga formed by such planets are questionable so in such cases always check if one yoga is failed then what about other available yoga’s (formed by the other planet) in the horoscope.
Tips – 22 : All the yoga’s are not Maha Dasha dependents.
Explanation : As we know there are more than 1000 plus good or bad yoga’s are available in the Vedic astrology system and as per all modern astrologers Yogas giving results in Dasha and Antar Dasha only, however, my experience does not allow me to accept this point hence I am sharing my own experience here which I have learned till now about the Yogas-
Basically, few yoga comes inbuilt in personality and activated by the day of your birth and these yogas does not require any dasha to give its result like –
Purnayu Yoga – combinations affecting life span as promises complete life (means it removes fear of early death).
Dirghayu Yoga – combinations affecting life span as promises long life.
Alpayu Yoga – combination promises short life.
Asatyabadi Yoga – combination producing liars.
And there are many more such yogasetc (Just to make you understand I am giving few yogas name as examples however you can refer BPHS to get list of all yogas).
So use your common sense and tell me do you think above yoga’s required dasha??
Purnayu yoga means if this yoga is available in any chart so person will live purna life (complete life), So what is the use of waiting for Dasha here???
Dirghayu yoga, if present in the chart which means you have received an additional blessing which is increasing your life, again it comes by birth and does not require dasha.
Alpayu Yoga – if present in the horoscope and if there are no saving factors available against this yoga which means since birth you have received limited life so what is the use of this yoga if Dasha of Alpayu yoga causing planet coming after 70 years of age???
Asatya Wadi Yoga – If presence in chart so person becomes liar, again can you tell me what if dasha of asatya wadi yoga forming planet coming at the age of 70??? Which means if dasha coming so person will lie at the age of 70???
Answer is no, Dasha has no use here, If this combination is available and fulfilling required parameters then person speaks lie time to time in his or her life whenever required.
Means these Yogas are activated by the day of your birth and affecting your life time to time even without concerned dasha.
Should I give more example???
Okay, let’s refer Bhatruvriddhi yoga, Sareersukh yoga, Matrusneha yoga, Matrudirghayu yoga, Karmajiva Yoga etc.
Do you think all above yogas required dasha ???
Answer is No… Because –
Bhatruvriddhi Yoga – Due to effect of this yoga Persons having much siblings.
Matrusneha yoga – Due to the effect of this yoga person gets much attention and love from his or her mother as matru means mother and Sneh means love.
Matrudirghayu Yoga – this is something your good karma influencing your mother’s life as due to your good deeds life span of your mother will increase (Basically this is what meaning of family where karma of each other influencing entire family).
Karma Jeeva yoga – there are many varieties of Karma Jeeva yoga and a planet which forming this yoga gives their result accordingly.
And there are more than 100+ yogas that are not waiting for Dasha and already showing their magic in your birth chart.
Note: Karma Jeeva, Matruvriddhi Yoga, BhatruVriddhi Yoga, Asatyawadi Yoga, Matrusneha yoga, dirghayu yoga, alpayu Yoga, Purnayu Yoga.. etc these are merely yoga’s so don’t treat them as Raja yoga.
Tips – 23 : Many yoga’s are conditional which means if condition fulfills then only yoga will manifest.
Explanation : Few yoga’s manifest only a person fulfill required condition otherwise these yoga’s are merely visible promises in the chart, refer few examples here –
Satkalatra Yoga – Availability of this yoga promises noble and virtuous spouse, and if you wish to know how noble or how virtuous spouse so that depends on strength of yoga or yoga forming planets.
But what is the hidden condition here??
Okay, pay attention because I am repeating definition again –
As per classical text, this yoga promises noble and virtuous spouse but when you get spouse??
Yes “when you marry” means marriage is the first condition to get the result of this yoga, so marry and get a virtuous spouse however when you remain single then this yoga has no use.
Because such yoga’s are always useless in the horoscope those don’t want to get marry or still living single (because the primary condition of this yoga is a marriage which is not getting fulfilled).
People think oohh I am having Satkalatra yoga in my chart but I have not got its result, so my friends its promising noble spouse but not the marriage (Marriage comes under condition), and even few people do not get noble spouse even after fulfilling the condition, that happens due to weakness of yoga or availability of other bad yoga’s which kills marital happiness.
So so many terms and conditions are there hence I say don’t judge your chart basis on one good or bad yoga’s.
Like the combination which signifies liberation (Moksha), But when such combination will give you result because if you are waiting for dasha to get moksha then again you are expecting something which you never going to get in any dasha, because moksha you can get after death only, so here two conditions available first is you karma should be up to the mark and another is, you have to die to get moksha…
So there are many yoga’s which are based on condition, if condition fulfills then only expect result.
Tips – 24 : If there are conjunctions of multiple planets then you can split the yoga’s like if three, four, or more planets are in conjunction in any birth chart then they are forming multiple yoga’s together so you can split them in many.
Explanation : Like if there are four planet conjunction in the birth chart by Sun, Moon, Jupiter, Mercury so you can split them into different single yoga like Budhaditya yoga (By sun mercury), GajKeshri Yoga (By Moon Jupiter Conjunction), or other many yoga’s formed by lordships and house placement by this total conjunction.
Tips – 25 : Understand the basic meaning of yoga and raja yogas first, as Each yoga having its own meaning, like Dharma KarmadhiPati yoga can’t bless you with a beautiful cute spouse or wealthy family or can’t promise success in every field, same happens in case of other yoga’s also because yoga’s just giving result as per their promises in birth chart but don’t promise to fulfill your desire always and While judging any raja yoga please give prior importance to the ascendant, sun and moon later must use Ghatika chart (Ghatika chart Signifies Power & Social status) and Arudha chart (yoga connected with Arudha Lagna give a boost to self-image) to get the clear clue of success because each one expects professional success from raja yogas…!!
So if you keep above mentioned 25 points in mind during the judgment of any yoga, honestly you will never disappointed, and your judgment will be sure shot always, Next point is :
Strength Judgement In Yoga :
After an association of two planets or for others yoga’s as well (those are formed by sign, house placements like Luminary Yogas, MahaPurushYogas, etc.) there are certain parameters that have been described in Vedic astrology systems to evaluate the real strength and capability of raja yoga giving planet, which finalizing the level of a Raja yoga.
So, let’s discuss those parameters which are mandatory to evaluate Yoga’s…
- House Placement : Good house placements of Raja yoga giving planet in Lagna (D-1) and other Vargas chart (especially in D-3, D-9, D-10, D-60) is imp because each planet doesn’t perform well in each house hence a house placement of the planet is primary IMP to judge auspiciousness of the Raja yoga, if house placement can’t be good then yoga can’t be good, because even good yoga in bad houses giving results after severe painful situations which maximum peoples don’t realize and even in few cases such availability having no meaning (So houses are enough capable to make or break a yoga).
- Sign Placement : Exaltation and Debilitation stages of the planets depend on the sign placement hence occupying a benefic sign for each yoga-giving planet is important, It’s basically changing the actions of the planet.
- Influence of Other Planet: If any other good or bad planet influencing yoga then result are modified greatly as per another influence, malefic influence is bad however benefics are good.
- Shadbal and Non Shadbal strength : Shadbal chart is used to determine the strength and capability of the planet however there are many more non Shadbal factors (Like Vargottama, Pushkar Navamsha, Pushkar Bhag, divisional chart placement, Vimshopakbala, etc) that need to see along with shadbal graph, Basically, it is said that if a yoga causing planet is weak in Shadbal so it can’t give its all the result strongly, but after reading this point people start fearing that if they see any low Shadbal planet, however, if any planet is causing bad yoga and weak in Shadbal then it’s quite good as well because it can’t kick your ass with same power…Lol… So each coin has two aspects please calculate both aspects.
- Dasha Varga strength : DasaVarga placement of planet is very important in terms of Raja yoga, dasavarga means ten divisional charts which are – D-1, D-2, D-3, D-7, D-9, D-10, D-12, D-16, D-30, D-60 in which the planet is Exalted, Mooltrikona or Own house is gets calculated, this overall score is used to analyze the strength of the Raj Yogas that the planet is involved in, In Indian astrology DashaVarga system has higher importance especially when you judge any raja yoga, There are few stages has been described for the planets as per their varga placement, like Paaijatamsa, Uttamamsa, Gopuramsa, Simhasanamsa, Paravatamsa, Devalokamsa, Brahmalokamsa, Airaavatamsa, Sridhamamsa which tells good, better, best type outputs as per received score, Like Paaijatamsa is good, Uttamamsa is better, Gopuramsa is best, Simhasanamsa is more good then Gopuramsa (each next is much beneficial then previous one), like that way keep moving till Sridhamamsa which is said to be highly beneficial however rarely any planet achieving such score in any horoscope, About dasavarga, In my own experience I would say where ever it works its giving finest result in terms of yoga, however in modern days since the computer system has entered, meaning of astrological calculation has destroyed.
- Other few facts : Combustion (Close conjunction of the planet with the sun), planetary war (If closely conjunct), Paap Kartari, etc.
- Ashtak Varga : Strength in Ashtak Varga giving strength to the yoga causing planet, and an important factor in judging the strength of the planet.
- Dasha Transits : Finally Dasha and Transit tell when you will get the result of concern yoga, so again here strength judgment (via all the above-stated points) of maha Dasha lord matters a lot.
I know it’s a bit a typical task to work with so many parameters, but only after applying all the above-stated parameters, you can get one clear picture of the planet.
If you have read my article based on Mahadasha where I have written that “Your life is nothing but a journey with time, if your time is powerful you can kick the world but if your time is bad world will start kicking your ass. So, in astrology time is seen by the dasha, as you pass through dasha (Time) you will get results by planets as per your horoscope.
However, transits act like a power switch, which is just activating the events, Astrology is too vast and endless so I know I might be missing many points.
Anyways, in a nutshell, the Type of Association of planets tells what you will get by any raja yoga, involved houses tell which area you may face effects of that raja yogas, Strength and capability of planets tell the amount of expectation (How much you will get), And Dasha and transits tell when you will get the results of that raja yoga. So do the evaluation and get the result.
Few Famous Rajayogas :
Now let’s discuss few very important combinations those are known as Big yogas in Vedic astrology systems, As I said there are 1000 combinations available in the form of shlokas, however, I am just discussing only a few Yogas here, as the presence of these Yogas certainly affects life in a positive way, also make sure I am just giving my brief opinion about these yogas –
Dharma Karmadhipati Yoga :
This yoga has been rated as A grade yoga in astrology Granth as formed by 9th and 10th lord in Kendra placement (When two highly beneficial planets of birth chart making an association in Kendra), If it’s formed by exchange then best, Better if formed by Conjunction, and good if formed by 7th mutual aspects of each other, a one-way connection has no much importance.
Writing one or two lines for this yoga will not be enough as If it’s pure and un-afflicted in the chart then It may help you to achieve the real final destination of life, Yes its making person fortunate in many matters but if you just expect money and fame by this yoga so I would say Sorry you don’t know how to utilize benefic energy of this yoga.
Sometimes I strongly feel that Yogas does not fail but just expectations of humans making Yogas flop (As people just expecting money, fame, and power by raja Yogas) because they don’t understand its real meaning.
Anyways theory and meaning of DKAY are very vast and I have a separate article for it, so read my article on DKAY where I have discussed this yoga in detail with many examples.
Kendra Trikona Raja Yoga :
When Kendra and Trikona lords are forming association creating this highly beneficial yoga’s, Again, if Kendra and Trikona lords are involved in exchange then its best association (yoga), Better if associated by conjunction and only good if forming by aspect on each other (but house placement should be in Kendra and Trikona only).
It’s again one of the biggest raja yogas, different planets make a different kind of Kendra Trikona, hence without a chart discussion won’t make sense, so read my article on Kendra Trikona Raja Yoga to study in details.
Maha Bhagya Yoga :
One of the very Rare and meaningful yoga of Vedic astrology, because it’s the only yoga that is affecting your mind, soul, and physical body (No other yoga does it).
Life is purely based on three things only (Mind, Soul and Physical Body), whereas Sun signifies soul, Moon signifies Mind, and Ascendant signifies physical body.
You might be thinking why I am not writing its definition like day-night born, odd-even sign???
Trust me, it took two years for me to understand the real meaning and capability of this yoga, it just beyond wording however to clarify this yoga I have to clarify the meaning of Surya and Chandra Kundli first then I can explain it very clearly “Why I considered this yoga highly fortunate”.
For more detailed study you can read my article on Maha Bhagya Yoga.
Panch Maha Purush Yoga :
Formed by five Great (Maha) planets known as Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, and Saturn in their exaltation sign or own signed in Kendra Placement.
However, remember it’s just Mahapurush yoga, as all five planets can’t be in their own or exaltation sign in Kendra, as Maximum four I have seen, but not five hence it’s just MahaPurushYogas.
Now two points coming here – either should we judge it from Moon or from Lagna, which is imp??
And Why Only Kendra houses??
So the answer is, Lagna signifies physical body whereas Moon signifies a mental state of a person, Yogas from Lagna chart means giving pleasure to your physical body, and Judging from Moon chart means giving pleasure (satisfaction) to your mind, Overall Both has their own importance.
If you expect something for physical life or having physical needs so judge it from Ascendant, but getting something from the angle of the moon (Chandra Kundli) means satisfying the needs of your mind.
I prefer its formation from the Lagna chart (An exalted Planet placed in Kendra from Lagna) because these days’ physical needs having much more important than mental needs.
And Kendra signifies male energies (As Kendra are known as Narayana houses), and even its name having its basic meaning like “PanchMahaPurush Yoga”, Like Panch means Five, Maha means Great, Yoga means combinations but ….
Purush Means what??
A Male, hence its only yoga if formed in Kendra houses however Trikona is Laxmi (Female) houses so this yoga can’t be formed in Trikona or any other houses.
You can read more details about Panch MahaPurush Raja yoga article.
Nabhasa Yogas :
Nabhasha Yogas are many in verities and there are 32 yogas that come under it, and few of them are very highly auspicious but few are very painful as well.
Again Nabhasha yogas having their own variations and impact on human life, each type of nabhasha yoga having own definitions and each one signifies specific fruits pattern for life.
But for all Nabhasha Yogas, I will just say, “Yes” these Yogas are like a contribution to the birth chart which improving some area of your life and giving something positive but all Nabhasha yogas are not raja yoga (few of them are quite negative), better to treat them just like yoga.
You can read detailed version of all types of nabhasha yoga in my portal.
Neech Bhang Raja Yoga :
As I have already described in my previous article that Neech Bhanga and Neech Bhanga Raja yoga are two different parts of the same yoga.
I have clarified about each single parameter in my NBRY article, however still I consider and praise only three conditions (From Lagna only) of NBRY personally which are –
I – Conjunction of Debilitated planet with an exalted planet in Kendra.
II – Conjunction of Debilitated Planet with its depositor.
III – Sign Exchange between debilitated planet with its depositor (In Kendra Trikona).
And why I praise these three conditions out to too many parameters of Neech Bhanga because the presence of these three conditions making something good for the native surely.
However, rest conditions are also useful, but they are not guaranteed, but the above three are the guarantee for something good in the case of NBRY. It’s one of the very powerful yoga for higher Professional success, you can read more details about NBRY yoga in my detailed article.
Parivartan Yoga :
Parivartan (Exchange) is one of the very powerful Yogas because it’s known as the complete association of two planets, Parivartan meaning “change”, Yoga meaning “an association” So you can also call a Parivartan Yoga “A life-changing yoga”.
ParivartanYogas may vary as per planets and involved houses, Parivartan yoga is good if happens between two friends or between two benefics, because if Parivartan causing planets are two enemies then you can understand what will be the result??
Whereas involved houses signify where Parivartan (Change or transformation) will take place in life, hence out of all Parivartan yoga exchange between 9th, 10th and 11th lords are considered highly beneficial because such Parivartan yoga affects (9th house – Luck), (10th House – Profession), (11th House – Fulfilment of desire).
Like if 5th house involved then a sudden change may come in your educational life, via kids, or Love matters, or anything related to the fifth house, hence remember involved houses tells where the Parivartan (Change in life) will happen. Overall Parivartan yoga is something that has the ability to change your life from good to bad or bad to good, hence it also comes under a few A Grade Yogas.
Gaj Keshri Yoga :
An Association between Moon and Jupiter (Two Benefic or we can say two most positive energies), Again Best if involved in an exchange, Better if in conjunction, Good if placed 7th from each other, 4th condition is the weakest association like if placed in Kendra from each other but not influencing each other equally.
The best thing about GajKeshri yoga is, the Presence of this yoga in the birth chart means the presence of one benefic boon, but there are 144 kinds of Gaj-Keshri yoga as per different-different ascendants, hence each one does not get an equal and same result.
But one benefic point about this yoga is, even if you are not getting any raja yoga kind result (As mentioned in classics) due to bad influence of weakness of both planet, “It Could be a Great Saving Factor for any horoscope if present”.
This means positive energy that is protecting your horoscope, however, if strong and fulfilling all required parameters then it’s not less than a blessing as two houses always get blessed like if Jupiter moon presence in Lagna means 1st & 7th Houses will be blessed surely.
Like if Jupiter is in the first house and the moon in the 4th house (Means both are placed Kendra from each other), then the first house and the fourth house will certainly be blessed, but these blessings have their own meaning if you expecting Money, Fame, Power, Big house, Virtuous spouse So it’s your fault because if one yoga can give you everything then what is the use of other Yogas present in birth chart??
As far as my opinion is concerned, So I considered GajKeshri yoga as great protection which saves from many odds in life, And Yes, its capacity to give Money, Fame, Power, etc also but it required few more support from horoscope & Varga chart to complete desired expectations.
Kaal Sarp Yoga :
I have clarified my views on this topic whether it’s yoga (Benefits) or a Dosha (Curse), that you have to decide because it’s just a natural formation, I have already written one long article with my own experience with many horoscope examples.
Internet is full with negative side of this yoga, here I am telling few positive points to judge it –
This yoga formed when all planets fall under the range of nodes (Rahu and Ketu), So house placement of Rahu and Ketu is the first parameter, second check constellation they are sitting in, the third check is that constellation lord ruling 6th, 8th, or 12th house (Coz it could be bad), Check starting phase of KSY, Is it starting from Rahu Or starting from Ketu??
If Rahu then check if Rahu occupied the Sign Taurus, Gemini, Virgo, Aquarius (It could be quite a beneficial point), Also check if out of seven planets “two or more” planets are exalted or Forming any big yoga’s under KSY?? And Finally Check the Sign and house placement of Rahu and Ketu in D-9, as if placed in Kendra in sign Taurus, Gemini, Virgo or with benefics in D-9, So This yoga is not cursed & later or sooner it will give you success.
Their formation is similar to Malika yoga and a starting point along with an ending point matter a lot, I know you might be thinking why I have included this combination in the list of special yoga, so my answer is, “This yoga is also capable to produce rulers and emperors” (Latest example you can see the horoscope of Donald Trump who has won a presidential election in the USA and became world almighty man from 2017-2021).
Malika Yogas :
When without break all the planets are forming a mala (shape of garland), signifies the presence of Malika Yoga, however, the formation of this yoga depends on all planets and involvement of multiple houses hence influencing many areas of life.
House by house they have different- different name as per starting phase, but all the forms of Malika Yogas are not equal capable, few are highly beneficial (Like if starting from Bhagya 9th house, known as Bhagya Malika yoga then highly beneficial).
But these Yogas having few hidden terms and conditions, you can read my detailed article on Malika yogas.
Budh Aditya Yoga :
Association of Sun and Mercury Forms this Yoga, and again Sun rules Leo and Mercury rules Gemini and Virgo, So Virgo is just next sign of Leo, Hence Exchange is possible because Mercury can’t go more than one house away from the sun (In all horoscopes, either mercury will conjunct Sun or will occupy the house next to the sun, and can’t go beyond this limit).
And Why I am telling this because only Leo Virgo exchange is possible in the matter of exchange between Sun and Mercury, so again this yoga best in exchange, better in conjunction, but 3rd and 4th kind of association are not possible in the Lagna chart (However possible in Divisional chart) because mercury can’t go opposite (7th place away) to Sun and even one way connection is also not possible.
So overall only exchange and conjunction is possible.
It has verities of result for each ascendant as per ruler ship of houses, So I would say still beneficial for all Lagna’s but Leo and Sagittarius ascendants may get the real massive benefits of this yoga.
As for Leo Ascendants Sun rules 1st house and Mercury rules 2nd and 11th house so it forms great Dhan yoga along with Budh Aditya Yoga, but house placement of Sun & Mercury may vary the result.
For Sagittarius ascendants, this single conjunction forms too many Yogas like Sun Rules 9th house, Mercury rules 10th house, So If they both are placed in 9th or 10th house, then merely sun and Mercury makes Dharma Karmadhipati Yoga, Budh Aditya Yoga, GanitVidhya Jan Yoga (A Great Mathematician), Kendra Trikona Raj Yoga, Veshi, Vaasi, Ubhaychari (Except Moon & Nodes if any other planet placed 2nd and 12th from Sun), also Karmajiva Yoga & Amla Yoga (If yoga formed in 10th house of the birth chart due to mercury placement in 10th house). Hence if they both are free from any malefic afflictions and Mercury is either retrograde or 6 to 10 degree away from Sun (Will become combust if under 2-3 degree) and placed in 9th or 10th house This yoga can bless with a large empire along with higher reputation and social status to native.
Chandra Mangla Yoga :
Association of Mars and Moon Causes Chandra Mangal yoga, basically people refer it as a Dhan yoga, However, if you wish to know the level of Dhan (Money) then needs to judge the association they are forming like best in Exchange, Better in conjunction, Good if connected via 7th aspect, less effective and bit harmful in one way connection as only fiery mars having special aspect, Along with these parameters overall placement and lordship tells clear story of this yoga as it could be different for all ascendant, and having many side effects too.
Vipreeta Raja yoga :
Formed by Dusthana lords (By Lords of 6th, 8th, and 12th), These Yogas are bound to bring something auspicious from odd situations as per its definitions.
However, my personal opinion for this yoga is again quite different from others, which I have got by closely observing people’s life and by learning autobiographies.
As its quite clear that something good coming from Odds, but when these odds will end nobody knows (Even sometimes Dasha fails), I have seen many failed predictions in the matter of VPRY, only certain conditions of VPRY really blessing native, like if VPRY is involved in another yoga, like Exchange yoga, NBRY or another such big Yogas so VPRY provides correct track however influence of another Yogas giving heights and desired result, otherwise, all three (Harsha, Sarala, Vimal) are painful most of the time before giving anything.
But I still considered these very influential and powerful Yogas because almost all successful peoples having one of VPRY and these have found their way when they had no path in life (Meaning this yoga at least working) But even they have passed Dasha of Vipreeta Raja Yogas causing planet then to, they can’t decide whether they have received anything which comes under yoga terms (I mean Fame, Huge Gains, Power and Social Status…etc).
And all the forms of VPRY does not confer the same results, and the only negative point of this yoga which I don’t like is that sometimes it takes whole life because VPRY Never promises a great journey but if really promising in a chart and powerful then will surely blessed with the great destination (Maybe sometimes at the ending point of life).
Lol sometimes it does not matter how you perform in a cricket match, Winning the world cup is much IMP, now apply the same theory to your life in the case of VPRY. Hence, I just use one Line for VPRY “Later or Sooner your life will come on Track” That’s It.
Dhan Yogas :
Money and wealth-giving combinations known as DhanYogas in astrology, 1st, 2nd, 5th, 9th, and 11th houses are known as money giving houses, However, planets which are ruling these houses acting as distributors of money.
So, if these houses lords associated with each other by exchange then it’s Best Dhan yoga, Better if conjunct each other, Good if aspecting each other via 7th aspect, and lesser in one-way connection.
Well, i have a detailed article on dhan yoga, you can read the same on this portal.
apart from the above, there are many lunar yogas (Formed by the sun and moon), however, you can read about them in my detailed article.
So we are moving to next Point now :
Karmic Meaning of a Yoga :
We all know very well, that all the Yogas (Good or bad) are the rewards or curse of our past lives karma, none of your karmas goes waste as your all karma makes some kind of good or bad Yogas for you, because as per Bhagwat Geeta you are the one who creates Karma for yourself, you create your own destiny.
Good karma causes good yoga in a horoscope and bad karma causes sufferings in our chart which gets denoted by bad planetary placement in our chart, overall you can’t run away from your karma, because your karmas (Deeds) are always chasing you birth by birth and coming in front of you in the form of fortune or misfortune.
The presence of bad Yogas in a birth chart is like a pin, which will give you pain certainly as bad Yogas having limited terms and conditions (As if even single bad yoga presence in the chart then it will curse you surely without fail) and even single bad yoga is enough capable to destroy maximum happiness of your life.
Even if you got 100 good yoga’s in your birth chart still only one or two bad yoga’s are capable enough to be the center point of your life (As humans having a tendency to focus on pain first even though they have got the whole good physical body, but even if they get small pain, people will start focusing on that pain however always forgetting that their whole body is perfect).
I don’t want to discuss bad Yogas here as I have written about each bad Yogas in a separate article with entire details and examples, and in this article, we will discuss only raja yogas.
Whenever any astrologer tells that there is a Raja yoga in your birth chart then at sudden people start dreaming about themself, because people think the meaning of Raja yoga would be either windfall of professional success with huge gains or it will give worldly pleasure –
However, it’s not true always, Yes, they are very auspicious only if powerful but the main drawback is, every combination is not raja yoga (I mean it’s not always wealth and pleasure-giving combinations).
Well, if I ask do you really know “What is Raja yoga”???
Here I am not asking the mathematical definition of any Yogas formations, Here I am asking “A pure Karmic definitions or reason behind the formation of any yogas“
Yes, actual Karmic Meaning of Raja yoga??
Because if I ask what he or she has done to get that good or bad combinations in his or her birth chart, then all going to tell one liner answer like he or she must have done good deeds and got that good yoga’s or bad deeds hence got bad yoga’s.
So yes, this answer is correct and logical but still not complete, so let me describe it more –
Vedic astrology having three categories in matter karma’s, which are –
(1) Kriyamaan – The deeds you perform in the present life by Mann, Mouth, and Physical Body as there is no fourth way to perform karma.
Note: Mann means thinking good or bad for others, Mouth means whatever karma which you performed by speech or mouth, the third way is a body, whatever karma you perform through the physical body, (Basically these all three ways known as “Mansa, Vaacha, Karmana” in Hindu Dharma), because there is no fourth way to perform karma.
(2) Sanchit – Total Accumulated Karma or remaining unexhausted Karma of all previous births which you have to face yet.
(3) Prarabdha – Bhagya or fortune which you have to face in upcoming future (which is based on Kriyamaan and Sanchit Karma).
Overall in any horoscope “Any Good or bad yoga’s are nothing but Highlighted Karma” which signifies Either you have done something extremely good or very bad which is going to come in the form of happiness or luxury or sorrow.
And involved houses signifies the area’s where you have performed these karmas.
So overall these highlighted spots (karmas) in specific houses tells in which area’s you are going to get benefits (In case of Raja Yogas) or sorrow (In case of Bad Yogas), Because these all are associated with your life and effecting it very stronger way, The deeds you do for your own so rewards of that deeds will affect you only in the form of good or bad Yogas, but the things you do for others that takes you in front of the world and gives you rewards out of expectations.
Because all such deeds have been marked and highlighted as good or bad Yogas and these Good Yogas or bad Yogas either can help to get your life goal very easily or could be a pebble which may cause trouble to achieve your life goals.
Horoscope Examples :
Anyways, Now wanted to show few horoscopes as an example, so lets start with horoscopes :
Case Study -1
One of the highest-paid Bollywood actress who is now entered in Hollywood also, an exalted Moon in Rohini Nakshatra making her ascendant extra strong, Glamour causing planets (5th lord mercury, Lagna lord Venus forming Kendra trikona relation and associated by conjunction) sitting in 2nd house with Rahu which exploring this yoga. Another Yoga karaka planet Saturn (as ruling 9th and 10th house) forming a one-way connection and aspecting second house from the fifth house of cinema and films. Born in the night time so maha Bhagya yoga is also there, So horoscope is full of multiple yogas which making her equally lucky in the glamour industry, refer to next chart –
Case Study – 2
Angelina Jolie, Refer her ninth house, Lagna lord Moon, fifth lord Mars, and 9th lord Jupiter all sitting in 9th house making her luck extraordinary, as all three forming Laxmi Yoga (Chandra Mangal), GajaKeshri Yoga (Conjunction of Jupiter and Moon), Guru Mangal Yoga (By Jupiter Mars). She is considered an inborn lucky female in the USA, she has Venus in Pushya nakshatra in Lagna getting aspected by Rahu and Jupiter, Her Major success came in Venus MahaDasha only (1995 to 2015).
As I said above, You will never find everything 100 % perfect in any chart, If you see above both the charts afflictions are available, In the case of Priyanka Chopra Saturn and Rahu afflicting Yoga however in the case of Angelina Saturn, Rahu and Mars afflicting 9th house, Overall if horoscope having a game of nine planet so malefic surely sit in any house as you cant expect them to sit outside of horoscope, Not only these two, I have seen many celebs horoscope afflicted but still they shining equally due to their hard work and passion along with a piece of luck.
Case Study – 3
In the above case, a Person born in Jupiter ascendant (Sagittarius) in balance Dasha of Jupiter itself, Out of the nine planets 7 planets are sitting in 2nd house of wealth, only Rahu is in 8th and depositor of Rahu (which is Moon) placed in 11th house in Jupiter Nakshatra, Person born with eminence riches.
This chart belongs to Emperor Abdullah II (King of Jordon).
Case Study – 4
A person born in India having 8 planets in 2nd house of wealth with the same ascendant of Jupiter, Only Rahu sitting in the 8th house as Rahu and Ketu cant be together in Lagna Kundli, So he having plenty of yogas in the house of wealth as well as from moon chart, But still person could not receive any big or remarkable success in his life (as we expect from such yogas) and spent his whole life as a common man only.
That’s what i have written above, small parameter can change entire game.
So, Please remember the meaning of these three words (if you predict according to shlokas) King, Rulers, and Emperors whereas a Kings means wealthy Personality, Ruler means either you could be govt. official or may occupy any higher post in a company where you will get power to give commands, and emperors means celebrities of modern time (a yoga which is capable to make you celebrity).
These days I am getting emails asking the same questions “Will I be a king”, and if I have to answer your question then “Yes boss, a person with sufficient bank balance, earning 50 thousand having 2 or 3 BHK house is basically a king of modern time.
However if you think king means celebs status so Occupying celebs status is a biggest responsibility even in modern time too…
Because being an emperor was not so simple even in ancient time ???
So many battle, blood shades, sufferings, which a emperor was facing in ancient time so being a Badshah was never an easy task…Same theory is applicable in modern time too…
Being a modern emperor or Ruler is quite typical task too, and after having fame and wealth people cry also…(Even shahrukh khan who is badshah of bollywood, accepted in anupamKher show that he cry a lot when he is alone).
Any Rulers is actual servant of public, even in modern time PM, CM, even anyone who known as Rulers serving their public…!!
If you think Narendra Modi & Donald Trump are rulers of modern time so what they do basically ??
“Yes” they both are serving their nation and public, apart from that so many oppositions parties attacking them, so many question answers they are facing, so many controversies, all the time public and media fucking their minds, So yet you think being a celebrity emperor or rulers are easy task even in modern time???
Dear, being a ruler or emperor neither was easy in ancient time nor in modern time.
Even celebrities having bad yogas in their charts, people ask me I have multiple planets in the 6th, 8th, or 12th house so should I do suicide ??
and I cant do anything except laughing after reading such mails, because if this is true then even Amitabh Bachchan should do suicide because he is also having planets in bad houses or bad avashtha, Entire world knows about the hardships he has faced in his life, that is the reason he is winner.
I know many of you might ask “What if a yoga is present in bad houses ???
So yes these houses holds hard energies, but Involvement of 6th, 8th and 12 house or lords alone not responsible for life failure, when a planet goes here which signifies he won’t give things easily…!!!
Yoga apko tabhi support Karega jab aap yoga ko support karoge (A yoga support you only if you equally support yoga) Like you have purnayu yoga or dirghayu yoga but whole life you spent in wine and smoking, drugs and enjoyment so even god can’t save you then how a yoga can???
Overall nothing is like denial, it’s always up to you how you use planet energy…Hence support yoga if you need something from yoga, No bad yoga has dared to stop you from reaching your goal (It may create hurdle only).
however, if you still believe in destiny then I would say Raja yoga is just a significator of your own luck store so never feel bad if you find your luck store empty…after all it’s all your karmas…!!!
If your input is not up to the mark, then you can’t expect desired output.
Now, below answering few very commonly asked questions which are related to this Raja yoga and its formation etc. and quite helpful for judgement, So click on the question to get the answer :
Frequently Asked Questions :
I know you might be thinking if something is written in destiny then it will happen otherwise what is the meaning of destiny?
However, it’s not true, let me clarify and finish this debate about what is imp between Karma and destiny –
Each one in the world is aware of the Maha Bharat war (One of the biggest battle on the earth of history) and about lord Krishna and GeetaUpdesha, where lord Krishna has focused on one word “Karma”, Have you thought about why he had said this again and again or why Krishna has focused on this one word only??
So Answer is, before starting of Mahabharata War everyone was aware that Pandava’s are going to win the Mahabharata war as it was destined, and Kauravas were destined to defeat, Even Lord Krishna knew this (He himself was God) but still, he came into battlefield because he knew if he is not there then Pandava’s can’t win this war at any cost, We can’t count even how many times Arjun going to be killed by his opponent however it could not happen because Lord Krishna was saving Arjun.
So Overall if we removing contribution of lord Krishna in Mahabharata war then result would be totally different as Pandava’s may dead, and Kaurava may get easy win.
Now you think where the “Destiny Exist Here”???
If Pandava’s were destined to win then they should have to win even without support of lord Krishna however we know it was not possible and if Lord Krishna was not there then destiny westiny all was useless because –
The biggest Hidden truth about destiny is “Destiny can’t fulfill itself without Karma”.
So, by their presence in Kurukshetra (Battle Field of Mahabharata War) lord Krishna was giving his input in Mahabharata war to get the result from destiny which came as Winning of Pandavas.
The overall conclusion is, if you need an output from destiny then you must give an equal input to the destiny, as without input you can’t get output.
If you thinking about lottery winning and even if you have very positive and strong lottery winning yoga in your horoscope but if you don’t buy lottery ticket then you know you will never win, so you can’t get an output without sufficient input.
That’s why Lord Krishna says “Do Karma” because Karma are input which is creating destiny (which is output of your karma).
Karma and Luck (destiny) both are like two tyres of the bike even if one is punctured, the bike is almost useless, Hence single thing never works, karma and labour both required for success otherwise each one does hard work, or many horoscopes which looks great may fail at the end.
Karma makes your destiny, but destiny does not make karma. So, if Karma is input so Raja yoga’s are Outputs (A part of your own destiny), in any horoscope Raja yoga’s acts like resources but –
