Sunapha|Anapha|Dhurdhura|Kemadruma Yoga

kemadurma-sunapha-anapha-dhurdhura yoga

The Yoga mentioned here is based on the condition of the 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 the natal Moon also.

Yoga like Sunapha, Anapha, Dhurdhura, and Kemadurma are based on Moon’s condition i.e. whether any planet is sitting next to it or aspecting it.

These yogas when you see in a practical way look synonymous with judging Chandra (Moon) Horoscope.

Whatever sages have said always has a subtle meaning to it. Since these yogas are related to the planet Moon, they can amplify or destroy the potential of Horoscope.

Kemadruma Yoga

The First yoga in this series is Kemadruma Yoga,  which is considered 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 the Moon or if the Moon is in conjunction with a planet there is no Kemadruma.

It is termed the cancellation of Kemadruma Yoga. 

Here since Sunapha, Anapha hence Dhurdhura Yoga are absent, a person with such yoga usually aspires for nothing in life.

In other words, lacks the motivation to do something or doesn’t have much inherited talent or qualities, on which he can bank.

Moon in such a 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 the Moon.

For the sake of convenience, we will call them

Case No.1 and Case No.2.

Case no.1 Gemini Ascendent and there are no planets on either side of the Moon.

Moon is neither aspected by any planet nor has any planet in 4th and 10th from its position.
Here as per the 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 on their chart but are living very well, in their life.

For example, famous actor Ben Affleck has Kemadurma Yoga in his chart but by no means, he is poor, dependent on others, and a swindler.

Instead, he is a super successful actor but he does have his issues related to drinking and bad behaviour.

Why Kemadurma Yoga is not working in his case??

Kemadurma Yoga example
Ben Affleck Birth Chart

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 good yoga in your chart can’t assure you good success, bad Yoga in your chart can’t give you a downfall.

The whole chart should be analyzed along with Dasha’s pattern of native and then only judgments on the results should be given.

Now in case no-2 the native has no planet on either side of the Moon but has 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 the 6th and 11th lords.

Moon being lord of the 2nd house is a maraka planet and Mars being lord of the 6th and 11th is a first-rate malefic for Gemini Ascendant.

Here though as per pure definition, Kemadurma Yoga is canceled a direct association of the second lord Moon with Mars who is lord of 6th and 11th, will create havoc in the 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 going through all the bad results of it.

Sunapha Yoga

Definition– 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 the Sun will make Moon automatically weak by its Paksha Bala and it is quite obvious that with a weak Moon, this Yoga will not materialize.

Rahu and Ketu are excluded since they are shadow planets and don’t rule over any zodiac.

Results: Self-earned property, intelligence, wealth, 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 yoga depends to a large extent upon the nature of the lord or lords occupying the second house from Moon.

For example, Moon is in Taurus for a Pisces Ascendant native, and Mercury, Jupiter, and Mars are placed in Cancer sign.

This is a powerful Sunapha Yoga capable of giving rise to much wealth.

Here the person will be very courageous since Moon is in the 3rd house of courage and is a benefic for Pisces ascendant and at the same time is getting strength from three planets which are supportive for Pisces ascendant.

As usual, the results will find expression in the Dasas and Bhukti of the planets responsible for causing the yoga.

In Dasha or bhukti of Mars, Jupiter, and Mercury person will show courage but the expression of courage will vary due to the natural and lordship significations of Mars, J Jupiter, and Mercury.

1.  In the Mars period the native will be very courageous because Mars signifies courage and will be giving strength to the Moon in the house of courage.
2.  Native will also get interested in taking long journeys, most likely for religious reasons because Mars rules over the 9th house of religion and spirituality.
3.  Native will also be inclined to earn money by self-efforts because Mars rules over the 2nd house of wealth.

Same way during the period of Mercury the native will be inclined towards the significations of house rules by Mercury i.e. 4th and 7th, which are matters related to family, education business, marriage, etc.

In the case of Jupiter, natives will put effort into establishing or progressing in this work of the field.

From this, we can conclude that Sunapha yoga makes a person work for various aspects of life and those aspects of life will be reflected by the rulership of planets sitting in the 2nd house to the Moon.

In other words, it makes a person hard worker and makes them strive for something in life or gives them a reason to live for something.

Look at the Horoscope of Virat Kohli, where planet Venus is present in 2nd to Moon and the same Venus is making an auspicious parivartan with Mercury, thus creating Sunapha Yoga.

In his case Sunapha Yoga is working in full force,2nd and 9th lord Venus who is an auspicious benefic is making him strive for success.

Also being in parivartan with Ascendant lord Mercury and aspected by Mars from the 7th house is making planet Venus more colorful and dynamic in his Horoscope.

Hence, Sunapha Yoga in his case is working in full force.

Since Rahu and Ketu don’t rule over any house they don’t create Sunapha Yoga.

The placement of Rahu & Ketu won’t compel the person to strive for any aspect of practical life.

Same way Anapha Yoga is formed when planets other than the Sun, Rahu, and Ketu are present in the 12th house to Moon.

Anapha Yoga

Definition: 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 of pleasure.

In later life, renunciation, and austerity.

Anapha Yoga deals with your past actions where a native is blessed with the results of good karma of past lives.

The native will have inherited qualities based on natural significations and rulership of planets causing Anapha Yoga.

The same is reflected in the definition of Anapha Yoga as per various commentaries.

The same is reflected in the definition of Anapha Yoga as per various commentaries.

While Judging Anapha Yoga due importance should be given to the planets nature 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 has a natural understanding of arts or music is lusty in nature, and can attract a person of the opposite sex easily.

They are blessed with charm in them.

2. 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 persistent in their efforts.

3. Mars forming Anapha Yoga by being in the 12th from the Moon blesses the native with command and a strong presence. They don’t make assumptions and learn from real-life experiences.

The houses that Mars rules will indicate those things and people who have influenced and formed the native’s opinions.

4. With Mercury in 12th to Moon indicates that the person very is calculative and possesses high intellect and logic.

They are very flexible in nature and keep themselves open to all kinds of experiences through which they can learn. They always explore new things which can benefit them in the long run.

Sages gave much importance to these yogas because, on one hand, Sunapha makes a person indulge in karma while Anapha shows the luck carried by him due to karma of the 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, and Venus are sitting 12th to Moon thus creating a strong Anapha Yoga which is working clearly in his case.

Mars, Venus, and Mercury have blessed him with strong results of Anapha Yoga and have contributed to his success on a large scale.

The next Yoga in continuation of this series is Dhurdhura Yoga.

Dhurdhura Yoga

Definition- Dhurdhura Yoga is when both Sunapha and Anapha Yoga are present at the same time.
In other words, when planets other than Sun, Rahu, and Ketu are present on the 2nd and 12th to the 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 the same time, the native stays active in his life and is inspired to achieve goals.

Sunapha will propel them to achieve goals while Anapha will provide them required luck or qualities that are essential to achieve them.

In other words here both Sunapha and Anapha work in a synchronized way and help the native to achieve goals and glory.

Now, here the role of natural and benefic planets is very important.

Sunapha or Anapha thus Dhurdhura formed by malefic i.e. Saturn and Mars, makes a person become over-obsessive with goals.

For example, Saturn in 2nd to Moon i.e. Sunapha yoga usually makes a person a workaholic, and due to too much emphasis on work and goals, their life can become unbalanced.

While with benefics in 2nd to the moon, makes a person balanced and doesn’t affect his other areas of life.

Same way, malefic in 12th to Moon i.e. Anapha Yoga shows faults in inherited or natural talents possessed by the native.

With malefics on the 12th to Moon can make a person lazy or slow(Saturn) or can make him overconfident (Mars).

Such a situation will automatically affect the final outcome of any endeavor taken by the native.

Amitabh Bachchan in 1990 formed his own production company and was overconfident(mars) regarding its success it.

The negative significance of Mars in Anapha Yoga made him overconfident in the success of his production house we all know how his company 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 a 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 give rise to another kind, and Jupiter in the 2nd and Mercury in the l2th give rise to yet another type though all these go under the name of Dhurdhura.

Each conjunction in these permutations produces 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.

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 give rise to another kind, and Jupiter in the 2nd and Mercury in the l2th give rise to yet another type though all these go under the name of Dhurdhura.

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 analyzed.

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 is very important and has the full potential to take a person very high in his life.
