Part 4

Dhana Yogas or Wealth giving Combinations

The second house is the house of wealth. Eleventh house is the house of income and gains. In the following circumstances, these form Dhana Yogas:

(1) Trine + Second house.

(2) Trine  + Eleventh house.

(3) Angle + Second house.

(4) Angle + Eleventh house.

(5) Second house + 11th house.

(6) Second lord + Rahu or Ketu.

(7) Eleventh Lord + Rahu or Ketu.

Jupiter is the significator of wealth. When it is in combination with 9th lord (fortune) or second lord or eleventh lord a Dhana Yoga is formed.

Sage Parasara based on the above rules gives some special Raja Yogas. Let us study these, because they help us in understanding how Dhana Yogas manifest.

(1) If there is a sign owned by Venus (Taurus or Libra) in the fifth house and it is occupied by Venus and Mars from the 11th house aspects it a Dhana Yoga is formed.

(2) Mercury in the fifth house in own sign aspected by Mars and Moon from 11th house a Dhana is formed.

The readers should notice the following Raja Yogas and Dhana Yogas:

(1) Ascendant occupied Rahu aspected by dispositor Mars.

(2) Mutual aspect between 9th and 10th lords.

(3) Mutual aspect between 9th lord and 11th lord.

(4) 10th lord with 11th lord in the 9th house.

(5) Second lord Jupiter in the 11th house with 7th (Kendra) lord Venus and 4th (Kendra) lord.

(6) Second and fifth lord Jupiter aspects 9th lord Moon.

Thus the readers can understand that every planet is in a Raja Yoga or Dhana Yoga. These were responsible for making native the richest man on earth during his times. This is a simple case where astrological rules can be easily applied and seen even by a beginner in astrology.

Poverty Yogas and Yogas for misfortunes

Houses 6, 8 and 12 are evil houses. Their involvement is necessary for poverty and misfortune. The bad Yogas are formed in the following manner:

(1) Lords of second and eleventh in the 6th, 8th and 12th house. It causes losses and poverty.

(2) Lords of trines in 6, 8, 12 cause misfortune, grief and loss of position.

(3) Lords of angular house in 6, 8, 12 cause misfortune, grief and loss of position.

(4) Lord of 3rd in 6, 8 or 12 creates obstacles in life.

The above are the most important `bad Yogas’. The other Yogas for misfortune are:

(1) Kemadruma Yoga: This causes calamities, poverty, loss of position and grief. It is formed when there are no planets in second or twelfth from Moon except the nodes or the Sun. It gets cancelled if a planet aspects Moon or a planet other than Sun, Rahu or Ketu is in an angle from Moon.

(2) Nirdhana Yoga: If Sun is weak and afflicted in an angular house and is debilitated in Navamsa it causes extreme poverty.

(3) Shakata Yoga: When Jup is in 6th, 8th or 12th from the Moon sign and Moon is not in an angular house Shakata Yoga is formed. This Yoga causes  ups and downs in life, obstacles and mental tension.

(4) If ascendant lord, Sun and Moon are all weak and afflicted the native leads an ordinary life.

(5) If second lord is combust, afflicted and debilitated the native is burdened with loans.
