Combination Or Yogas Part 1


Dr. Shanker Adawal                                                                  

Part 1

I am describing below the following three types of Yogas:

(i) Raja Yogas or Combinations for power and affluence.

(ii) Dhana Yogas or Combinations of wealth.

(iii) Penury Yogas these Yogas, let me describe the meaning of a Yoga or a combination. The combinations are of the following four types:

(1) Exchange of House: Two planets if occupy each other’s sign, are said to have exchanged houses or signs. This is the most powerful combination.

(2) Mutual Aspect: Mutual aspect between two planets is the second type of combination. This combination is the second most powerful combination.

(3) If a planet is aspected by its dispositor it is the third type of combination. It is less powerful than the above two types of combination.

(4) Conjunction: Two planets in the same sign are said to be in Conjunction. For this type of combination to the effective the two planets should be in the same sign and simultaneously in the same house when seen in the Chalit Chakra. This is the least powerful amongst the four types of combinations. I have found that this combination is powerful when within 10 degrees of each other. It is very powerful when planets are in the same Navamsa.
Besides the above four types of combinations described by Sage Parasara, Mantreshwara in Phaladeepika describes the following two types of combinations:

(1) Two planets in trinal house from each other. For example, Sun in Aries and Jupiter in Leo.

(2) Two planes in an angle or Kendra from each other. For example, Sun in Aries and Jupiter in Cancer.

Variable Karakas And Karakamsa

Before going on to describe the various Yogas, it is important to know about variable Karakas described by Sage Parasara. We are all aware of the fixed Karakas or significators. For example Sun of soul and father, Moon of Mother, Venus of spouse and so on. Similarly, Sage Parasara also describes Variable Karakas which vary in different horoscopes.

Consider the longitude of planets without their sign position. Take the following horoscope.

The planet whose degrees are the highest is the Atmarkaraka (Significator of Soul). The second highest is the Amatya Karaka (Significator of ministerial position). The third highest is Bhratri Karaka. The fourth highest is Matri Karaka. Fifth is Pitri Karaka. Sixth highest is Putra Karaka. Seventh is the Nati Karaka and the planet whose longitude is the least becomes the Dara or Stree Karaka.

Note: For considering the Variable Karakas Ketu is not considered. That is, only eight planets, Sun to Rahu are to be considered.

In the above example Karakas can be tabulated as below. This means that Mercury whose degrees are the highest i.e. 13 degree 13’, becomes the Atmakaraka. Similarly other Karakas are determined. The readers will also notice that the degrees traversed by Rahu in a sign are considered starting from 30 degrees. This is so because Rahu is always retrograde. In our example the degrees traversed by Rahu are (30 degree-26 degree 12’) = 3degree38’.

Note: These are responsible for considering certain types of Raja Yogas.

Karakamsa: The sign in which Navamsa occupied by Atma Karaka falls becomes the Karakamsa. In our example, Atmakaraka Mercury is in Libra Navamsa. Therefore, Libra becomes the Karakamsa.
