Moon in Yoga Configuration Part 3

Part 3

Absence of planets in 2nd and 12th Moon is said to form Kemadruma – Yoga a bad Yoga (please note the native becomes obscure, miserable, base, though born in a king’s house.

Sage Garga opines that if Moon occupies a Kendra position from Lagna or is associated with Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus or Saturn in Kendra, this Yoga is nullified.

But Varaha Mihira, rejects this view, and holds that the Moon with the malefic or in a Kendra to Mercury, Venus or Jupiter also do not favour cancellation of this Yoga, except with Mars or Saturn in Kendra to Moon. He had a soft corner for Mercury, Jupiter and Venus, being natural benefics. The effects shall be felt with a pinch of salt, when malefic conjoin benefics.

Brihat Jataka praises Moon aspecting Jupiter for a day birth which makes one wealthy while for a night birth. Moon aspecting Venus, makes one happy. When all the benefics are in the Upachaya houses (3rd, 6th, 10th and 11th) from the ascendant, the person shall be immensely rich, when the three benefics mercury, Jupiter and Venus be in Upchaya houses from the Moon the person will be an ordinary landlord. When there are two benefics in these houses, one shall possess moderate wealth. In case of only one benefic, one shall  have little wealth (hand to mouth). If no benefic no land or house. The main point to ponder over these Yogas is that the great Varaha Mihira has authoritatively stated that even if there are other malefic Yoga even then the efficacy of this Yoga will prevail. By this, the sage has complimented the Upchaya position of the benefics from Moon since he does not agree to mitigation or annihilation of kemadrumayoga by Kendra position or association of planets like Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn, as annunciated by sage Garga.

I am of the view that Kema-druma-yoga is not so dreaded as looked down upon, while the position of benefics in Upchaya houses (3rd, 6th, 10th and 11th) from Moon shall mitigate if it do not completely alleviate.

The chart is adduced to elucidate my contention. The native is a Virgo born with Rahu in Lagna, Mars in the 6th, Moon, Ketu in the 7th, Saturn in the 8th and the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter and Venus in the 9th. All the three benefics (Mercury Jupiter and Venus) are in Upchaya position from the Moon. The unsullied lagna and 10th lord Mercury joins Venus (9th lord) in the 9th, forming Karam-Dharam Yoga. Jupiter lord of 4th and 7th avoiding Kendra-Dhipati-Dosha joins the Yoga to enhance its efficacy.

Mars in the 6th and the Saturn in the 8th have mutually exchanging places, to form Viparita Raja-yoga, in addition to formation of Durudhura-yoga (Mars and Saturn being in 2nd and 12th to Moon). The native had an ordinary service career since debilitated Saturn aspects 10th houses. Mars (3rd and 8th lord a direr-malefic for Virgo) aspects the planets forming the Yoga. He is now running Venus Maha Dasa and lost wealth in business (run in the name of his wife) while the native was in service.

Dr. B. V. Raman writes, in Bhavartha Ratnaka that a Virgo nativity loses wealth in Venus Dasha. But another view goes thus;

Kanya Lagne Jatasya Bhrigoh Chandra Syavayadi
Sambandho Yadi Vidheta Raveh Dare Dhanagam

Meaning: In case of Kanya Lagan natives, when sun is related to Venus or the Moon by mutual conjunction or aspect, etc. the native will have access to wealth during Sun’s Dasa.

The native owns landed property worth lacs of rupees, a spacious house a self made factory. He is doing well with his own job these days. Such Dasa must elevate him in his business.
