Tajika Yogas

1. Introduction
Yogas are the planetary combinations indicating good or bad results. The clue to successful predictions on the basis of Tajika Shastra lies to a great extent in a proper understanding of its yogas. These yogas are as appropriately applicable to Horary charts as they are to the annual charts. Unlike Parashari System, where there are hundreds of Yogas, the Tajika shastra has only 16 yogas. Tajika astrologers have evolved very ingenious method for understanding the intricacies of a particular event through these yogas. These yogas are formed due to specific disposition of planets, their speed for mutual aspect on each other and their specific orb or Deeptamsha. The various names given to these yogas have been derived from the Persian or Arabic languages. The Vedic astrologers should be given credit that the alien names of the yogas have been retained as such and graciously incorporated in the Sanskrit verses for Horary and Annual horoscopy. Several of Tajika yogas may be present in any one Prashna or Varshphal chart. The correct delineation of a chart involves a balanced interpretation of various yogas present in the chart. It may be noted that Rahu and Ketu do not figure in formation of any these yogas.

2. The Lagnesh and the Karyesh
These two terms are regularly used while describing most of the Tajika yogas and they participate in formation of several yogas. The Lagnesh or lagna lord represents the native himself. Hence the involvement of Lagnesh is necessary in order to ensure the occurrence of any event to the native. The nature of this event is governed by another planet or significator (Karaka), which represents an event by its being the lord of a particular house ruling that event. For example when Lagnesh establishes some relationship with the lord of say, the 5th house (significator/ Karyesh for the 5th house), some event pertaining to one’s progeny (ruled by 5th house) is likely to materialize.

The above strict application of the terms Lagnesh & Karyesh holds good in case of Prashna or Horary chart because generally one is to find out the occurrence of one event from a chart. However in an annual chart, any house may be treated as lagna and the relationship of its lord (Lagnesh) with another lord (Karyesh) may be studied to know about the events pertaining to a particular house. For example a relationship, through yogas, between lord of 5th & 12th lords may indicate loss of progeny. Similarly a relationship between 7th and 11th lord may indicate some gains accruing from wife or business partner.

The actual interpretation of each of the Tajika yoga may thus require the consideration of the following factors:

1. Lordship of the planets over houses.

2. The natural significations of the planets.

3. Houses in which yoga producing planets are posited.

4. Various planetary aspects or influences within their specific orab between yoga producing planets.

5. Strength of the yoga producing planets.
