- in YOGA IN ASTROLOGY by
The Yoga mentioned here are based on the condition of Moon in a Horoscope. We all know how important is the planet moon in our chart and every Dasha or Antardasha should be judged from natal Moon also.
Yoga’s like Sunapha, Anapha, Dhurdhura and Kemadurma are based on Moon condition i.e whether any planet is sitting next to it or aspecting it.
These yogas when you see on practical way looks synonymous to judging Chandra (Moon) Horoscope.
Whatever sages have said always have a subtle meaning to it. Since these yogas are related to planet Moon, they can amplify or can destroy the potential of Horoscope.
The First yoga in this series is Kemadruma Yoga, which is considered as a negative yoga.
Definition– When there are no planets on both sides of the Moon, Kemadruma Yoga is formed.
Results-The person will be dirty, sorrowful, doing unrighteous deeds, poor, dependent, a rogue and a swindler.
Remarks– Some authors say that if planets are in a Kendra from birth or from the Moon or if the Moon is in conjunction with a planet there is no Kemadruma. It is termed as cancellation of Kemadruma Yoga.
Here since Sunapha, Anapha hence Dhurdhura Yoga is absent, a person with such yoga usually aspire for nothing in life. In other words, lacks the motivation to do something or don’t have much-inherited talent or qualities, on which he can bank on.
Moon in such position makes it quite weak and since Moon represents our mind, such condition on Moon can make a person literally aimless and lazy and hence bad results as stated in commentaries get materialized in his life.
Let’s take two cases of Kemadurma yoga which is formed when no planet is sitting 2nd or 12th to Moon.
For sake of convenience, we will call them
Case No.1 and Case No.2.
Case no.1 have Gemini Ascendent and there are no planets on either side of Moon. Moon is neither aspected by any planet nor has any planet in 4th and 10th from its position.
Here as per definition of Kemadurma Yoga the person will be
“dirty, sorrowful, doing unrighteous deeds, poor, dependent on others, a rogue and a swindler”
But there are many successful people in the world who have Kemadurma Yoga in their chart but are living very well, in their life.
For example famous actor Ben Affleck, he has Kemadurma Yoga is his chart but by no means, he is poor, dependent on others and a swindler. Instead, he is a super successful actor.
Why Kemadurma Yoga is not working in his case??
See in his Horoscope there are numerous Raj and Dhan Yoga and Ascendant is very strong due to the presence of 5th lord Venus and Ascendant is aspected by Jupiter from 7th, Jupiter is creating panchmahapurush Hamsa Yoga too.
It’s quite clear from the above example that Horoscope should be judged properly before declaring any results. Just like a good yoga in your chart can’t assure you good success, a bad Yoga in your chart can’t give you downfall. The whole chart should be analyzed along with Dasha pattern of native and then only judgments on results should be given.
Now in case no-2, the native have no planet on either side of Moon but have Mars in 7th from it. As per the definition of this yoga, here Kemadurma is canceled and bad results of it won’t pass.
But on practical grounds, he will suffer on account of Moon’s relation with 6th and 11th lord. Moon being lord of 2nd house is a maraka planet and Mars being lord of 6th and 11th is a first rate malefic for Gemini Ascendent.
Here though as per pure definition, Kemadurma Yoga is canceled but a direct association of second lord Moon with Mars who is lord of 6th and 11th, will create havoc in life of the native of case no.2 and it will be more severe than the bad effects of Kemadurma Yoga as stated in texts.
With case no 2, we can see that planet Mars is canceling Kemadurma Yoga but the same Mars will make his life difficult.
This shows how astrology concepts should be judged and their plain meaning from texts should be modified as per the need of the situation.
So it’s clear that while Judging Kemadurma yoga or any other yoga, we just can’t jump to the conclusion directly and make assumptions that the person is really going through all bad results of it.
If there are planets (excepting the Sun,Rahu, and Ketu) in the second house from the Moon, Sunapha is yoga is formed.
Sun is excluded here because Moon being that close to Sun will make Moon automatically weak by its Paksha Bala and it is quite obvious that with weak Moon this Yoga will not materialize.
Rahu and Ketu are excluded since they are shadow planet and don’t rule over any zodiac
Results: Self-earned property, intelligent, wealthy and good reputation.
Remarks: Here the second house to Moon may be occupied by Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn either singly or collectively. Again the nature of the yoga depends to a large extent upon the nature of the lord or lords occupying the second. Thus take Moon in Taurus for a Pisces Ascendant native and Mercury, Jupiter and Mars being placed in Cancer. This is a powerful Sunapha Yoga capable of giving rise to much wealth. Here the person will be very courageous since Moon is in 3rd house of courage and is a benefic for Pisces Ascendant and the same time is getting strength from three planets which are supportive for Pisces Ascendant natives. As usual, he results will find expression in the Dasas and Bhukti is of the planets responsible for causing the yoga.
In Dasha’s of Mars,Jupiter and Mercury person will shows courage but the expression of courage will vary due to the natural and lordship significations of Mars,J upiter and Mercury.
1.In Mars period the native will be very courageous because Mars signify courage and will be giving strength to Moon in house of courage.
2.Native will also get interested in taking long journeys,m ost likely for religious reasons because Mars rules over 9th house of religion and spirituality.
3.Native will also be inclined to earn money by self efforts because Mars rules over 2nd house of wealth.
Same way during period of Mercury the native will be inclined towards significations of house rules by mercury i.e 4th and 7th, which are matters related to family,e ducation business,marrige etc.
While in case of Jupiter, native will put efforts to establish or progress in this work of field.
From this we can conclude that Sunapha yoga makes a person to work for various aspects of life and those aspects of life will be reflected by rulership of planets sitting in 2nd house to Moon.
In other words, it makes a person hard worker and makes them to strive something in life or give them a reason to live for something.
In his case Sunapha Yoga is working in full force,2nd and 9th lord Venus which is a auspicious benefic is making him to strive for success.
Also being in parivartan with Ascendant lord Mercury and aspected by Mars from 7th house is making planet Venus more colorful and dynamic in his Horoscope. Hence the Sunapha Yoga is his case is working in full force.
Since Rahu and Ketu doesn’t rule over any house they don’t create Sunapha Yoga. Placement of Rahu & Ketu won’t compel the person to strive for any aspect of practical life.
Same way Anapha Yoga is formed but when planets other than Sun, Rahu, and Ketu are present in 12th house to Moon.
if there are planets in the l2th from the Moon, Anapha Yoga is formed.
Results: Well-formed organs, majestic appearance, good reputation, polite, generous, self-respect, fond of dress and sense pleasures. In later life, renunciation and austerity.
Anapha Yoga deals with your past live actions where native is blessed with results of good karma of past lives. Native will have inherited qualities based on natural significations and rulership of planets causing Anapha Yoga.Same is reflected in definition of Anapha Yoga as per various commentaries.
Same is reflected in definition of Anapha Yoga as per various commentaries.
While Judging Anapha Yoga due importance should be given to planets nature of planet sitting in 12th to Moon and looking at that planet you can make out the inherited talents or qualities of a person.
For example when you see.
1.Venus 12th to Moon, you can easily make out that the person have natural understanding if arts or music and is lusty in nature and can attract person of opposite sex easily. They are blessed with charm in them.
- While with Saturn in 12th to Moon, you can make out that, deep down the person is detached from things around him. Anapha Yoga formed by Saturn makes them hardworking and persistence in efforts.
3.Mars forming Anapha Yoga by being in the 12th from the Moon blesses the native with command and strong presence. They don’t make assumptions and learn by real life experiences. The houses that Mars rules will indicate those things and people who have influenced and formed the native’s opinions.
- With Mercury in 12th to Moon indicates that the person very is calculative and posses high intellect and logic.
They are very flexible in nature and keep them selves open to all kind of experiences through which they can learn. They always explore about new things which can benefit them in long run.
Sages gave much importance to these yogas because, on one hand Sunapha makes a person to indulge in karma while Anapha shows the luck carried by him due to karma of past.
Also, Planets in the 12th from the Moon indicate the conditioning and attitude with which the native meets life’s experiences.
The example here for Anapha Yoga is Amitabh Bachchan where 3 planets i.e Mars, Mercury, Venus is sitting 12th to Moon thus creating a strong Anapha Yoga which is working clearly in his case.
Mars, Venus and Mercury have blessed him strong results of Anapha Yoga and have contributed to his success on large scale.
The next Yoga in continuation of this series is Dhurdhura Yoga.
Dhurdhura Yoga is when both Sunapha and Anapha Yoga is present at same time.
In other words when planets other than Sun, Rahu and Ketu are present in 2nd and 12th to Moon Dhurdhura Yoga is formed
Results-The native is bountiful. He will be blessed with much wealth and conveyances.
Here, since both side Sunapha and Anapha Yoga are present at same time, the native stays active in his life and inspire to achieve goals. Sunapha will propel them to achieve goals while Anapha will provide them required luck or qualities which are essential to achieve them.
In other words here both Sunapha and Anapha works in synchronized way and help the native to achieve goals and glory.
Now, here role of natural and benefic planets are very important.
Sunapha or Anapha thus Dhurdhura formed by malefics i.e Saturn and Mars, makes a person to become over obsessive with goals.
For example Saturn in 2nd to Moon i.e Sunapha yoga usually makes a person workaholic where due to too much emphasis on work and goals, their life can become unbalanced.
While with benefics in 2nd to moon, makes a person balanced and doesn’t not affect his other areas of life.
Same way, malefics in 12th to Moon i.e Anapha Yoga shows faults in inherited or natural talents possessed by the native.
With malefics on 12th to Moon can make a person lazy or slow(Saturn) or can make him over confident(Mars). Such situation will automatically affects the final outcome of any endeavour taken by the native. Amitabh bachchan in 1990 formed his own production company and was overconfident(mars)regarding success of it. Due to negative signification of Mars in Anapha Yoga made him overconfident on success of his production house and we all know how his company got tanked and he was in huge debt because of it.
Remarks– Whatever may be the results ascribed to different yogas, one important truth emerges, that is, the person gets money, power, fame and reputation of varying gradations. This, of course, does not apply to strictly Parivraja Yogas. Many varieties of Sunapha, Anapha and dhurdhura are formed by permutations and combinations of the five planets and their results should be particularly noted. If Mars is in the 2nd and Mercury is in the l2th a kind of Dhurdhura is formed. Similarly Mars in the l2th and Mercury in the 2nd gives rise to another kind and Jupiter in the 2nd and Mercury in the l2th gives rise to yet another type though all these go under the name of Dhurdhura. Each conjunction in these permutations produce different results. To give a simple illustration take Mars in the 2nd in Capricorn where he is exalted and Jupiter in the 12th in Scorpio in a friendly sign.

Now take Jupiter in the 2nd (debilitated) and Mars in the 12th (in his own house). Would the results in both cases be the same? All these permutations must be carefully analysed. There will be 31 varieties of Sunapha, and an equal number of Anapha combinations and there are something like 180 varieties of Dhurdhura Yoga.
Readers are advised to check Horoscopes as much as they can and see how these yogas are working in it.
The Yoga we discussed above looks normal but are very important and have full potential to either take a person very high in his life.
