Bhadra Yoga

Bhadra Yoga along with Hamsa, Ruchaka, Malviya and Sasa yoga goes under the special distinction of Panchamahapurusha Yoga. It is a special Rajyoga and is unique due to the fact that Bhadra Yoga is formed by a single planet and doesn’t require the involvement of any other planet in its formation.

Definition: Bhadra Yoga is formed when planet Mercury is in one of the Kendra houses (1st, 4th, 7th & 10th) in either Gemini or Virgo sign.

Since it is one of the panchmahapurush yoga one should understand what it actually means. Panch Mahapursuh word here suggests that when any of the planet, i.e. Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, and Saturn when placed in one of the Kendra houses in their own, exaltation or exalted signs, blesses one with all of their supreme qualities.

Here, since we are dealing with Bhadra Yoga, Mercury, planet qualities will be imparted to native personality which are intelligence, quick mind, logical thinking, good reflexes, attractive personality etc.

These kind of Rajyoga are the direct result of some really good karma from past lives which enables one to get such placements.

Why Bhadra Yoga Formes In Kendra House only?

As we all know Kendra houses are the pillars of any chart. You can compare them to the base of a building and the whole horoscope revolves around them. These houses deal with our basic needs of life.

  • The first house is your body.
  • The fourth house is your family.
  • The seventh house is your spouse or partner.
  • The tenth house is how people gauge you in society.

Though Trines are also important, but not all are very lucky or spiritual which comes under the domain of 5th and 9th house, but still, our daily life comes under Kendra houses. In simple words, Kendra houses are like the skeleton of your horoscope.

In simple words, Kendra houses are like the Heart a horoscope.

Remarks On Bhadra Yoga

In common practice, Mercury comes into Gemini (June or July) and Virgo(September or October) once every year. Due to this, you will find many charts with Bhadra Yoga and most of the times Bhadra Yoga isn’t manifesting fully.

Following points should be checked before giving Judgement on Bhadra Yoga.

  • Mercury should not be combust.Though Mercury stays very close to planet sun and gets into combustion quite frequently. Here combustion degrees of Mercury should be taken as 5 degrees, though as per K.N Rao Mercury should be more than 3 degrees to avoid combustion.
  • Should not be defeated in planetary war.
  • Mercury should not be afflicted by natural malefic like Mars, Saturn, Rahu or Ketu.
  • Mercury should not be afflicted by the lord of 6th, 8th or 12th house.
  • Mercury should not be debilitated in navamsa.
  • Very important here is to look at asthakavrga points on Mercury in its own zodiac and preferably it should be 6 or more than 6 so that Bhadra Yoga can manifest fully.

Bhadra Yoga works very well for Gemini and Virgo ascendant natives where Mercury is the ascendant lord. Whereas in Sagittarius in the 10th house its works better than 7th house Bhadra yoga. Mercury is also karaka of 10th house and, usually, in 7th house, Mercury doesn’t give good results. For Pisces ascendant Bhadra yoga works better in the 4th house than 7th house Bhadra yoga.
