Astrology says that Raj yoga is a yoga which provides the fortune of a king to the native who has this yoga in his kundli (birth chart). Every person wants a happy life but happiness is not in everyone’s fate in equal amount. A person’s joy and sorrow can be assessed determined by the positions of planets and yogas in his or her kundli.
The term ‘Raj Yoga’ has two parts viz. Raj and Yoga. Raj yoga in astrological terminology means that a yoga which provides happiness like a king has. In this article we will discuss what Raj yoga is and what it gives a native.
Raj yoga is not a very special yoga. Raj yoga is formed by the combination of auspicious planets in a kundli. To judge the planet according to the Ascendant it is required to observe the auspiciousness and inauspiciousness of planets, significator, insignificator, prime significator of combining planets.
Besides these the natural auspiciousness or inauspiciousness of planets should also be taken in to consideration. For Raj yoga exalted planets are required in Kendra house, exalted Venus in the fate line, and relationships between navamsha and dashamsha is vital.
Planet in debilitated sign do not mean that they will provide malefic result as the lord of the seventh house will aspect the same house if a planet is stationed in a debilitated sign. The result of this development will also depend on the relationships of other planets.
Raj yoga is not formed by any special planet in a kundli but all planets are equally responsible for its formation. Astrology says that Moon in its various placements has a huge impact upon the yoga. A debilitated Moon can become a barrier for a planet combination that provides positive results.
If the triangle or Kendra houses have the aspect of Venus or Jupiter then Raj yoga gives its full results, and the native gets happiness which can be compared with the happiness of a king.
Thus it is observed that there are a number of combinations of Raj Yoga with various degrees of results. It is not a good idea to assume that just the existence of this Yoga in the kundali will make the person like a king. There are many other positive and negative factors that can play a role in how the person’s lifestyle will be.
Various types of Raj Yoga in a kundli.
Vipreet Raj Yoga
A vipreet rajyoga is formed if the lord of the Trikha house is in the Trikha house or is in the position of making combination or aspect any situation. For example if the lord of the eighth house is in the byaya house or in the sixth house and if the lord of the sixth house is in the eighth house, if the lord of the byaya house is in the sixth or eighth house then the aspect combination of the lords of the trikha house or a good relationship between them is said to be an excellent yoga which gives immense joy and prosperity to the native. The native is blessed with king sized happiness. Astrology considers that inauspicious planets lose their malefic nature if they are in inauspicious house.
Kendra Trikon Raj yoga
When a kundli has the combination of the Ascendant with the lord of the Kendra or triangle house then this Raj yoga is formed. In the Kendra and triangle houses goddess Laxmi is the epitome of triangle and god Vishnu is the epitome of the Kendra house. This yoga provides an amazing fortune to its native. This Raj yoga gives wealth, fame and prosperity to the native.
Neechbhang Raj Yoga
When in a kundli a sign has debilitated planet and its house has the lord of the sign in an exalted sign or its position is in Kendra from the ascendant house then in this circumstance this Raj Yoga is formed. As for instance if a debilitated Jupiter is in the Capricorn sign but there is an exalted Saturn as the lord of the Capricorn then it is broken and therefore called Neechbhang Raj Yoga.
Rajya Poojit Raj Yoga
This Raj Yoga is usually seen in female. If a lady has this Raj yoga in her kundli then it means her husband will be a respected and affluent person in the society. This yoga is formed during her birth time when the seventh house is occupied by auspicious planet, equally auspicious planet, planet related with auspicious planet or if any auspicious planet aspect the seventh house.
