Saturn Transit Is Important

Saturn transit is slowest in Vedic astrology and have deep lasting impact on us.

No analysis is completed without giving weightage to Saturn transit.

Though we need to see Horoscope from any angles and we should use more than one dasha &  custom techniques before making any conclusions.

I started the Yoga series with panchmahapurush yoga and discussed it with example charts. Today I will discuss on Vipreet Rajyoga, the reason I choose Vipreet Rajyoga is because of the wide confusion over it.

There is not much information available on this Yoga. So I thought to do some work on it.

Sage Parashar in his work BPHS didn’t describe good results for placements of dusthana lords in other dusthana houses.

For example as per Parashar 6th house lord when making a planetary association with 8th house via house placement, makes one immoral, chaser of others wife and sickly in nature.You can gauge by these words that in no wild imagination it’s an Astrology Rajyoga.

Though Parashar described some better results of placements of 8th and 12th lord other dusthanta houses but still they are far from what can be called as Rajyoga.

Later centuries sages like Vaharmira and most notably Kalidasa in his great astrological work kalamritam described results which can be termed as Rajyoga.

As per Kalidasa following definition is given by him on Veepreet Rajyoga.
Kalidas in Classic Uttarkalmitra -Kanda 4 sloka 22

“if the lords of the houses 6, 8 and 12 occupy either jointly or individually the houses 6, 8 and 12 or if they are in any manner connected with the houses 6 or 8 or 12 provided these planets do not have any connection with other planets not owning 6 or 8 or 12, then the person will be a king and he will command much wealth and will establish a good name and enjoy his life.”

Also, he clarified it with more explanations.


When the lord of 6th house is placed in 8th or 12th house then Harsha Yoga is formed.

The person born in Harsha Yoga will be endowed with happiness, enjoyment, good fortune, and a strong constitution will overcome to his enemies and will be afraid to commit sinful acts he will become a friend of illustrious and prominent people. He will have wealth, splendor, friends fame and son.


When 8th house lord is placed in either 6th or 12th house Sarala yoga is formed.

The person born in Sarala Yoga will be long-lived resolute, fearless, prosperous, and will be endowed with learning, children, and riches. He will achieve success in his undertakings, overcome his foes, be pure and widely celebrated.


When the lord of 12th house is placed in 6th lord or 8th house Vimala Yoga is formed.

The person born in Vimala Yoga will spend little and save much money. He will be good to everybody. He will be happy and independent and will have a respectable profession or conduct and be renowned for his good qualities.
Similar kind of good results is given by other celebrated sages also.

Now the question arises why these yoga’s were not given importance by the father of astrology by Sage Parashar himself.

Reason being is the evolution of society, sage Parashar exists 5000 years ago and dynamics of society was very simple at that time.

Later on, in “Kaliyuga” things changed and people started to have a different way of life.

During Parashar times anything different used to considered as bad and people used to stick to traditional values.

Considering this important factor sages in later ages changed the results of many yogas and VIPREET RAJYOGA came into existence.

Veepreet in Hindi means obstacles and in layman language, Veepreet Rajyoga means victory or gains after initial struggles.

Here the concept of negative plus negative equal to positive can be applied.

Following points were observed practically on Veepreet Rajyoga.

1.Harsha yoga makes one more to injury’s when formed by 6th lord placement in 8th house.

6th house is a house of diseases and 8th house is a malefic house which represents death also.

Now since it is Veepreet Rajyoga there have to be some negative results which in this case is bad health.

2.Harsha yoga makes one win court cases especially when 6th house lord is placed in 8th house because 6th house is a house of allegations and when placed in the 8th house it tends to destroy the negative significations of the 6th house.

Both these results can be seen in the Horoscope of Salman Khan.

Vipreet Rajyoga

He is suffering from nerve pain in the face which is considered as worse pain that can happen to human and same time he was never found guilty in any of criminal case against him.

3.Harsha yoga, when formed by placement of 6th house lord in 12th house, doesn’t give health issues but gives very strong enemies which give stiff competition and being the best out of your or you get rewarded of his mistakes.

Like in the case of politicians most of the time one enjoys the unexpected benefits of his competitor.

For more examples of Harsha yoga, you check horoscope of Mother Theresa.


In her horoscope also she enjoyed work for unprivileged people which comes under the 6th house.

4.Sarala yoga, when formed by placement of 8th lord in 6th house, gives very fame by defeating enemies but same time makes one gives wounds or injury by them.

Check horoscope of Che Guevara where the 8th lord of death & destruction is sitting in the 6th house of enemies.

5.Sarala yoga is found in the horoscope of rebels and powerful kings or in other words Sarala yoga native found to have power in society.

Example, check the horoscope of Margret Alva a prominent and respected politician from India.

Vipreet Rajyoga

She is of Pisces ascendant and 8th lord Venus is in 12th house which creates a strong Vipreet Rajyoga. She gained a prominent position in her Venus subperiod but same time lost her Father also.

In the horoscope of Napolean Bonaparte 8th lord Mars is in 12th house generating a Vipreet Rajyoga.


In the horoscope of Martin Luther King, 8th lord Jupiter is in 12th house creating a strong Sarala Vipreet Rajyoga.


One more pattern was observed that when planets involved in Veepreet Rajyoga aspects their own house then less amount of good results were felt.

Example 6th house lord in 8th house is more powerful than 6th lord in 12th house.

Because here 6th lord is aspecting its own house making it strong inherently.Whereas Veepreet Rajyoga deals with weakness and subsequently overcoming that weakness.

In the case of Sarala yoga where 8th house can’t aspect its own house and Sarala yoga with the 8th lord in the 12th house found to be more stronger than 8th lord in 6th house.

Same way Vimala Yoga is more strong when the 12th lord is in 8th house for example Sachin Tendulkar.

Now as per many there are other ways also which can form Veepreet Rajyoga like mutual aspect relationship of these dusthanta lords. This is wrong and Veepreet Rajyoga can’t be formed this way unless it is happening in the dusthanta house itself.

Same way exchange of these house lords doesn’t make Veepreet Rajyoga unless happening in these houses itself.
Suppose in a horoscope 8th lord is in the ascendant and 6th lord is in the 7th house making a mutual aspect relationship with them.

This won’t make Veepreet Rajyoga instead it will destroy the whole horoscope due to their affliction over two major important houses.

I hope I have cleared some confusion from your mind but astrology is all about reading charts and rules as much as possible.

  3. Hello Naveen, My question is that i am cancer ascendant and i am having venus and mars conjuction in 4th house in Libra Sign. Can you tell if its good or not.
    I am currently going through rahu mahadasha and i am having sun mercury and rahu conjuction in 2nd house in leo sign. Is it good ?
    And One Last
    I am having jupiter in capricorn and saturn in pisces

    1. Hello Karan, the conjunction of Venus and Mars is auspicious for your horoscope because Mars is Yogakaraka and Venus is lord of 4th and 11th house lord. Though the presence of Rahu and Mercury in 2nd house is not a good union in your horoscope and will affect your finances negatively. Sun is in own sign which can counter their bad results.

      Regarding Rahu mahadasha nothing concrete can be said without looking into horoscope properly because there are many factors which can change results of dasha and planets.

  7. Hi,

    1. Yes it is a effective Veepreet yoga but to take it full advantage a horoscope should have other prominent Raj yoga also.

  9. Hi. can you help me with this case please: libra ascendant, debilitated venus in 12th, as lord of 8th. Jupiter in 12th as lord of 6th. Saturn in 12th as lord of 4th and 5th (raja yoga). plus raja yoga from venus and saturn. 1st and 5th. so what the heck is going on in 12th house???

  10. Hello,

    I have question here and that is in Gemini Ascendant, Saturn and Venus rules 8,9 and 5,12 respectively so will they give rise to vipreet raj yoga..? for example Saturn is yoga karaka being lord of 9 but if placed in 6th or 12th will it still create vipreet raj yoga,..?

    1. Hello Milan, here its get lil tricky. For a fully effective Vipreet Raj Yoga,planets involved should not have any relation with other houses apart from 6th,8th and 12th. Any relation of auspicious houses spoils the vipreet raj yoga. For special cases like Gemini ascendent where planets have simultaneously lordship over auspicious houses,concerned planet should be weak in strength in oder to create effective vipreet raj yoga.

      Vipreet itself means obstacles thats why is created by inauspicious house lords.

      Let me elaborate it here,
      Suppose saturn here is lord of 8th and 9th house then technically saturn is a auspicious planet due its lordship over the most auspicious house i.e 9th.But still many gemini people suffer in saturn dasha.
      One more things to note here is that due to its lordship over 9th house,it doesn’t mean that gemini native won’t feel effects of 8th house in their lives.
      Saturn will always carry shades of 8th and 9th house.Its a matter of its strength and transits which decides weather it will act as 8th house lord or 9th.
      If it is weak by shadbala or even by asthakavarga then saturn will give result of 8th rather then 9th.Its a common rule that any planet should be strong to give good results of its lordship house.
      So here if saturn is weak and is placed in 6th(scorpio) then it will create vipreet rajyoga and if placed in 12th then again good results of Veepreet rajyoga will be observed. The only condition in this case is that planet should be weak by strength especially in navamsha.

      Same way for cancer ascendent Jupiter rules over 6th and 9th house and of weak and placed in 8th or 12th will give vipreet rajyoga.
