Dr. Shanker Adawal (Jyotishaacharya, PHD, MBA)

Yogas are astrological combinations i.e. either with reference to planets i.e. The Sun, the Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn or by other principles. Various Yogas are form by the placement of these planets in particular houses/signs etc. Other Yogas are formed by the Lords of some houses when in association/conjunction etc. Further, some Yogas are formed by the position of planets specially in a particular order i.e. from 1st House to 6th House or from 7th House to 12th House. Most of the important yogas have been discussed in earlier issues of this Journal. Know now about more Yogas (astrological combinations) to improve your intellectual capital in the field of astrology. Please remember and do not jump to any conclusion on the basis of these yogas – the results may differ in any particular horoscope depending on the totality of the Horoscope. Some of the Yogas have been repeated for re-capitulation.

In Sanskrit astrological nomenclature Yogas mean special planetary combinations for the productions of high political power and influence, great wealth, philanthropy, asceticism, misery, debts, demoralization and corruption. These yogas must be properly scrutinized along with the application of the usual astrological rules. Yogas can make or mar a man. Misfortunes are found in a horoscope. For wealth etc. we have different types of yogas – Raja yoga – producing high political power. Dhana yoga or combination for great wealth; and Gnana yoga or combinations for real higher knowledge and renunciation of the world; and Arishta yoga – series of misfortunes of the most baneful nature.
