A Yoga means a
combination or conjunction of planets. While Positive Yogas
impart strength to the horoscope, Negative Yogas mar and
destroy all the postive results bequethed by
the positive combinations.
Prognostication is difficult normally, as all horoscopes are
a mixture of positive and negative indications and
influences and it is difficult to arrive at a resultant
As Vedic Astrology
is a revealed Science, revealed to the Seers in Yogic flashes of
heightened Consciousness, the remedies prescribed are effective
and can ward off negative influences and make man actualise his
potential, both material and spiritual, which are the obverse and
the reverse of the same coin of Life !
Amavasi Yoga - This
Yoga manifests when the Moon is proximate to the Sun. All
planets when they near the Sun, lose their virility and become
The conjunction of Luna and Sol is known as Amavasi
or New Moon. ( Its opposite phenomenon is the Luni-Solar
opposition, Pournami or Full Moon ). The native born under
Amavasi Yoga becomes weak mentally, as mental strength can only be
bestowed by a powerful ( powerful in digit strength ) Moon !
If Moon comes within 72 degrees of the Sun, she is said to
be devoid of digit strength. All the significations associated
with the Moon suffer as Moon comes within 72 degrees of the Sun.
The Moon signifies Mother & Mind ( Mano Matharo Sheetharashmi
). If the Moon is afflicted, there is danger to the native's
mother as well. ( Of course, the 4 H also should be taken into
consideration ). An afflicted Moon can also mean that the
native will not rise high in the political sphere, as Moon is the
Queen in the Celestial Government ( Rajanou Ravi
Sheethagu ) ! Amavasi means that the Moon is afflicted by the
Sun, who is considered as a natural malefic in VA. Mind will
go through depressive Black Holes for the native. Remedial
Astrology has it that such natives should fast on Mondays ( Monday
being Dies Luna or Day of Moon ) & consecrate to the Divine Mother
on Mondays ( The Divine Mother being the Deity of the Moon ), wear
Moonstone or Coral, wear the Soma Talisman & perform Soma Homa
( Soma being the name of Luna ), with the Soma Mantra !
Nisva Yoga -
This Yoga manifests when the 2 L ( 2nd lord ) is in the adverse
6,8,12 houses. Sva means Wealth and Nisva means one devoid of
wealth, as 2 H is the House of Wealth !. This is a
problematic Yoga, as Wealth is something highly fancied by
this world ! ( This world is a Vanity Fair ). Remedies are
propitiating the 2 L (Second Lord) with his Mantra, Yantra &
Homa, fasting on his Day ( Sunday - Sun;Monday - Moon; :
Tuesday - Mars; Wednesday - Mercury; Thursday - Jove; Friday
- Venus & Saturday - Saturn ).
Nirbhaya Yoga -
This Yoga manifests when the 9 L is in the adverse 6,8,12 houses.
This is another
problematic Yoga as 9 H rules Fortune. Luck
or Fortune is said to be the greatest quality ( Bhagyanvitha Sarva
Gunair Upetha ) and lack of it can lead to a chaotic life.
Remedies for this are propitiation of the 9 L on his Day
with his Mantra, Yantra & Homa, fasting on his Day and
consecrating to the Lord on his Day. Bhagya Sooktha Mantra
can be used to counteract this malefic Yoga.
Daridra Yoga - When
the 11 L is in the adverse 6, 8, 12 houses, this Yoga manifests.
The 11 H is said to be the House of Gains and House for the
fulfillment of all desires. ( Abheeshta Labham Khalu Sarvamethath
). Remedies for this are propitiation of the 11 L on his Day
with his Mantra, Yantra & Homa, fasting on his Day and
consecrating to the Divine on his Day. Lakshmi Mantra can be
used to counteract this Yoga.
Dur Yoga -
When the 10 L is in the adverse 6, 8, 12 houses, this Yoga
manifests. The 10 H is the most important House as it rules
Profession. This destructive Yoga can be a formidable block
as the native works hard and finds no result ! Remedies
for this are propitiation of the 10 L on his Day with
his Mantra, Yantra & Homa, fasting on his Day and consecrating
to the Divine on his Day.
Sakata Yoga -
This Yoga manifests when Jupiter and Moon are in 6/8 or 2/12 from
each other. Sakata means a wheel in Sanskrit and the native's
fortunes will fluctuate like a wheel. He will be led through dire
vicissitudes. Jupiter angular to the Moon is Kesari Yoga, a yoga
which is diametrically opposite to this Yoga. Sakata Yoga can
create financial stringency. Remedies for this are propitiation of Jupiter
on his Day with his Mantra, Yantra & Homa & fasting
on his Day. Sree Sooktha Mantra can be used to counteract this
Yoga. Cancellational factor is an angular Jupiter, angular to
the Asc and if so, the native becomes a regal person !
Kalasarpa Yoga - When all planets are hemmed in between the
North Node & South Node, this Yoga manifests. Till 34, the
native struggles hard in life and in Life there will be occasional
dips. Even though some scholars opine that K Y is valid only in
Mundane Astrology, this Yoga is found to be destructive in Natal
Astrology as well. Remedies include performing a Kalasarpa Homa
and wearing the Kalasarpa Talisman and chanting the mantras of
both Rahu & Ketu
Asura Yoga -
When benefics occupy the 8 H, this Yoga manifests. Asu means the
sensory organs and one born in A Y will have sufficient sensory
enjoyments. Fate has given the native all the resources to enjoy
life fully. For a hedonist, this Yoga is Heaven but for a
spiritual aspirant, this Yoga is a big block as it can hinder his
spiritual progress, his goal being Self Actualisation ! Only from
a spiritual perspective have we included this Yoga as a Negative
Kemadruma Yoga -
This Yoga manifests when the Signs on either sides of Luna are
unoccupied. The person born under this Yoga is dirty, sorrowful,
low-minded and devoid of wealth ( Kemadrume Malina Dukhitha Neecha
Nisva ). Tripura Mantra can be used to counteract this Yoga. Soma
Homa & Yantra can be useful in nullifying this Yoga.
Papa Karthari Yoga
- This Yoga manifests when a house or a planet is hemmed in
between 2 malefics. If the Ascendant ( Personality, Fame ) is
hemmed in between malefics , in a P K Y, there may be even
suicidal tendencies. Same is the case if the Moon is in P K Y.
If Sun is in P K Y, father's health physical & mental becomes
a problem. If Moon is so positioned, mother's. If a House or Bhava
is in PKY, then the significations of that House or Bhava suffer.
If the 2 H is in P K Y, then the native will have dire
vicissitudes. If the Asc is in PKY, then the native's health
becomes a problem. Remedial Astrology has it that the afflicted
planet or house lord should be propitiated with the respective (
the planet's or the House lord's ) Mantra, Yantra & Homa.
Malefics in Houses
the House they tenant. Natural benefics are Jupiter, Venus, Moon
& Mercury. Moon waning is malefic and so is a malefic
associated Mercury. Jupiter & Venus become malefics when
afflicted by angular ownership ( Kendradhipatya Dosha ).
If the Ascendant is
vitiated by a malefic, the native suffers from the hallucination
of defeat ( Lagne Papagathe Parajaya Bhaya Siroruja ). There may
be affliction to the head. If 2 H, wealth will be afflicted. If 3
H, younger coborns become inimical. If 4 H, mother and
conveyances. If 5 H, children. If 6 H, enemies attack the native.
If 7 H, life partner creates problems. If 8 H, hindrances and
obstacles on the way. If 9 H, Luck will be found wanting. If 10 H,
problems in the professional sphere. If 11 H, gains will be
difficult to come by. If 12 H, hidden enemies attack the native.
There may be even incarceration. Remedial Astrology has it that
the afflicted house lord should be propitiated with the respective Mantra,
Yantra & Homa.
the Yogas, one should check whether cancellational factors are
there or not. Cancellation of Kemadruma Yoga goes under the name
Kemadruma Bhanga Yoga and a person born under this Yoga becomes a
royal personage , like one born in Neecha Bhanga Raja Yoga (
Kemadrume Bhavathi Mangala Suprasiddhi ). A powerful Jupiterian
aspect can also destroy negativity. Jupiter in the Ascendant or an
angular Jupiter can also remove a lot of negativity. Great care
must be taken before predicting the effects of negative yogas, as
cancellation of a Negative Yoga becomes a Positive Yoga !
