Malefic Yogas in Vedic Astrology and Their Remedies

Yoga means a combination or conjunction of planets in Vedic Astrology. While Positive Yogas impart strength to the horoscope, Negative Yogas mar and destroy all the positive results bequeathed by the positive combinations. Prognostication is difficult normally, as all horoscopes are a mixture of positive and negative indications and influences.

As Vedic Astrology is a revealed Science, revealed to the Seers in Yogic flashes of heightened Consciousness, the remedies prescribed are effective and can ward off negative influences and make man actualize his potential, both material and spiritual, which are the obverse and the reverse of the same coin of Life ! What the Seers hear is only an infinitesimal portion of the Infinite Vedas ( Ananta Vai Veda )!

Explanation of Negative Yogas in Birth Chart

Amavasi Yoga – This Yoga manifests when the Moon is proximate to the Sun. All planets when they near the Sun, lose their virility and become combust. The conjunction of Luna and Sol is known as Amavasi or New Moon. ( Its opposite phenomenon is the Luni-Solar opposition, Pournami or Full Moon ).

The native born under Amavasi Yoga becomes weak mentally, as mental strength can only be bestowed by a powerful ( powerful in digit strength) Moon ! If Moon comes within 72 degrees of the Sun, she is said to be devoid of digit strength. All the significations associated with the Moon suffer as Moon comes within 72 degrees of the Sun. The Moon signifies Mother & Mind ( Mano Matharo Sheetharashmi ). If the Moon is afflicted, there is danger to the native’s mother as well. ( Of course, the 4 H also should be taken into consideration ).

An afflicted Moon can also mean that the native will not rise high in the political sphere, as Moon is the Queen in the Celestial Government ( Rajanou Ravi Sheethagu ) ! Amavasi means that the Moon is afflicted by the Sun, who is considered as a natural malefic in Vedic Astrology. Mind will go through depressive Black Holes for the native. Remedial Astrology has it that such natives should fast on Mondays ( Monday being Dies Luna or Day of Moon ) & consecrate to the Divine Mother on Mondays, wear Moonstone or Coral.


Nisva Yoga – This Yoga manifests when the 2 L ( 2nd lord ) is in the adverse 6,8,12 houses. Sva means Wealth and Nisva means one devoid of wealth, as 2 H is the House of Wealth !. This is a problematic Yoga, as Wealth is something highly fancied by this world ! ( This world is a Vanity Fair ). Remedies are propitiating the 2 L (Second Lord) with  fasting on his Day ( Sunday – Sun;Monday – Moon; : Tuesday – Mars; Wednesday – Mercury; Thursday – Jupiter; Friday – Venus & Saturday – Saturn ).


Nirbhaya Yoga – This Yoga manifests when the 9 L is in the adverse 6,8,12 houses. This is another problematic Yoga as 9 H rules Fortune. Luck or Fortune is said to be the greatest quality ( Bhagyanvitha Sarva Gunari Upetha ) and lack of it can lead to a chaotic life. Remedies for this are fasting on his Day.


Daridra Yoga – When the 11 L is in the adverse 6, 8, 12 houses, this Yoga manifests. The 11 H is said to be the House of Gains and House for the fulfillment of all desires. ( Abheeshta Labham Khalu Sarvamethath ). Remedies for this are propitiation of the 11 L on his Day with fasting on his Day.


Dur Yoga – When the 10th Lord is in the adverse 6, 8, 12 houses, this Yoga manifests. The 10th House is the most important House as it rules Profession. This destructive Yoga can be a formidable block as the native works hard and finds no result ! Remedies for this are fasting on his Day and giving charities.


Sakata Yoga – This Yoga manifests when Jupiter and Moon are in 6/8 or 2/12 from each other. Sakata means a wheel in Sanskrit and the native’s fortunes will fluctuate like a wheel. He will be led through dire vicissitudes. Jupiter angular to the Moon is Kesari Yoga, a yoga which is diametrically opposite to this Yoga. Sakata Yoga can create financial stringency. Remedies for this are fasting on its day. . Cancellation factor is an angular Jupiter, angular to the Ascendant and if so, the native becomes a regal person !


Kalasarpa Yoga – When all planets are hemmed in between the North Node & South Node, this Yoga manifests. Till 34, the native struggles hard in life and in Life there will be occasional dips. Even though some scholars opine that Kalsarpa Yoga is valid only in Mundane Astrology, this Yoga is found to be destructive in Natal Astrology as well.


Asura Yoga – When benefics occupy the 8 H, this Yoga manifests. Asu means the sensory organs and one born in Asura Yoga will have sufficient sensory enjoyments. Fate has given the native all the resources to enjoy life fully. For a hedonist, this Yoga is Heaven but for a spiritual aspirant, this Yoga is a big block as it can hinder his spiritual progress, his goal being Self Actualization ! Only from a spiritual perspective have we included this Yoga as a Negative Yoga.


Kemadruma Yoga – This Yoga manifest when the Signs on either sides of Luna are unoccupied. The person born under this Yoga is dirty, sorrowful, low-minded and devoid of wealth ( Kemadrume Malina Dukhitha Neecha Nisva ).


Papa Karthari Yoga – This Yoga manifests when a house or a planet is hemmed in between 2 malefics. If the Ascendant ( Personality, Fame ) is hemmed in between malefics , in a Papa Karthari Yoga, there may be even suicidal tendencies. Same is the case if the Moon is in Papa Kathari Yoga. If Sun is in Papa Karthari Yoga, father’s physical & mental health becomes a problem. If Moon is so positioned, mother’s. If a House or Bhava is in Papa Karthari Yoga, then the significations of that House or Bhava suffer. If the 2 H is in Papa Karthari Yoga, then the native will have dire vicissitudes. If the Ascendant is in Papa Karthari Yoga, then the native’s health becomes a problem.


Malefics in Houses

Malefics spoil the House it tenants. Natural benefics are Jupiter, Venus, Moon & Mercury. Moon waning is malefic and so is a malefic associated Mercury. Jupiter & Venus become malefics when afflicted by angular ownership ( Kendradhipatya Dosha ).

If the Ascendant is spoiled by a malefic, the native suffers from the hallucination of defeat ( Lagne Papagathe Parajaya Bhaya Siroruja ). There may be affliction to the head. If 2nd House, wealth will be afflicted. If 3rd House, younger coborns become inimical. If 4th House, mother and conveyances. If 5th House, children. If 6th House, enemies attack the native. If 7th House, life partner creates problems. If 8th House, hindrances and obstacles on the way. If 9th House, Luck will be found wanting. If 10th House, problems in the professional sphere. If 11th House, gains will be difficult to come by. If 12th House, hidden enemies attack the native.

While evaluating the Yogas, one should check whether cancellation factors are there or not. Cancellation of Kemadruma Yoga goes under the name Kemadruma Bhanga Yoga and a person born under this Yoga becomes a royal personage , like one born in Neecha Bhanga Raja Yoga ( Kemadrume Bhavathi Mangala Suprasiddhi ). A powerful Jupiterian aspect can also destroy negativity. Jupiter in the Ascendant or an angular Jupiter can also remove a lot of negativity. Great care must be taken before predicting the effects of negative yogas, as cancellation of a Negative Yoga becomes a Positive Yoga !
