, with some important clues about the method to interpret the Raja
Yogas and other important yogas in a horoscope. In the last Sloka (stanza) of Chandra Yoga Adhyayaa (sloka
number 13 in the Chapter 38) of Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra, it is clearly mentioned that "
This most important Sloka in the Chandra Yoga Adhyayaa is many a time overlooked, which result into
misinterpretation of the horoscope in general.
Almost every practising astrologer must have experienced this: people knowing basics of astrology often
complain that 'we have so many good Raja Yoga's and Dhana Yoga's in our charts but why they are not
OW let us analyze the examples of some of the top Corporate leaders to make you understand how the good alignment of Raja Yogas and Dhana Yogas in three important Divisional charts (Rashi Chart, Navamsa and Dasamsa) along with timely dasa had helped them to reach pinnacle of their industry. In some case studies, birth details have not been given, to maintain confidentiality
Case study 1. Managing Director of an International Fashion Brand
This is the horoscope of a Corporate professional, who was awarded as the 'Retail Icon of India' last year,
for his excellent work in high-end fashion apparel industry, since last 20 years. He is a Graduate from the
National Institute of Fashion Technology in Delhi, and has led many multinational companies dealing in
fashion garments, since two decades. In the Cancer lagna chart of this native, one can spot Yoga Karaka
Mars giving aspect to the lagna and its lord Moon, which is an excellent Raja Yoga. Mars giving aspect to
the 2nd lord Sun, which is exalted in the 10th house, is a big Dhana Yoga.
: Here, lagna lord Sun is in mutual aspect with Yoga Karaka Mars and also 2nd and 11th lord
Mercury. So Raja Yoga in the Birth chart has got strength here in Navamsa, too. Also notice a Gaja Kesari
Yoga in both Birth chart and Navamsa, which makes his Moon very strong.
: 10th house of the Birth chart Aries is rising in the ascendant, receiving the aspect of 5th lord Sun
and 9th lord Jupiter. So again, a big Raja Yoga has repeated in Dasamsa chart, which is a very important
Divisional chart for career. In Dasamsa chart, lagna lord Mars is in the 8th house, with 4th lord Moon in
'Neecha-Bhanga' Yoga, and they are in mutual aspect with 2nd lord Venus in a grand Dhana Yoga. During the maha dasa of Mars from November 2008 to November 2015, he was at the peak of his career in the
Corporate world of fashion garments, when he was leading a top MNC in Asia Pacific. I have explained
how Mars is making good Raja Yoga in all the three charts and during its dasa he was destined to enjoy best
time of his career. In Rahu dasa also, he got success, as Rahu in Birth chart is associated with yogakaraka
Mars. Also notice the depositor of Rahu in all the three important charts (given above) are in good yogas.
Case study 2: CEO in a top Fashion Brand
|Asc ||26°48' ||Libra ||Visaka|
|Sun ||23°50' ||Aries ||Bharani|
|Moon ||07°05' ||Scorpio ||Anuradha|
|Mars ||16°47' ||Gemini ||Arudra|
|Mercury ||26°30'c ||Aries ||Bharani|
|Jupiter ||18°54' ||Aquarius ||Satabihisha|
|Venus ||09°30' ||Pisces ||U.Bhadra|
|Saturn ||08°15' ||Gemini ||Arudra|
|Rahu ||26°07' ||Scorpio ||Jyeshta|
|Ketu ||26°07' ||Taurus ||Mrigasira|
This Libra lagna horoscope is another astrological example on the point how major Raja Yogas' repetition
in Birth chart, Navamsa and Dasamsa is an absolute must, for reaching great height in life. In Libra (Tula)
lagna horoscope, lagna lord Venus is exalted in the 6th house, and is under the aspect of 4th and 5th lord
Saturn, which is Yogakaraka for this lagna. A beautiful exchange between 7th lord Mars and 9th lord Mercury
is another Raja Yoga in this chart. Then 2nd and 7th lord Mars in conjunction with 4th and 5th lord Saturn is
a Raja Yoga as well as Dhana Yoga. Moon, though in Kemadruma, is in excellent Gaja Kesari Yoga. In
Navamsa also, Moon is in good Gaja Kesari yoga and there are good benefic planets in Kendra.
Venus as the 5th lord is conjoined with 2nd lord Moon in a good Dhana Yoga. The aspect of
9th lord Saturn on the Moon and Venus, is a good Raja Yoga as well as Dhana Yoga. We need to remember
that Kendra lords (1,4,7 and 10) in association with trine lords (1,5 and 9) make good Raja Yoga.
The 2nd and 11th lords in connection with trine lords (1,5 and 9) make good Dhana Yoga, as per
In Dasamsa chart, the 9th house from Janma lagna, which is Gemini, is rising with its lord Mercury giving
aspect to it. Venus as the 5th lord in mutual aspect with 9th lord Saturn and 7th lord Jupiter is again in good
Raja Yoga. So we have seen Venus is in Raja Yoga's in all the three Divisional charts.
It was no
surprise, when he became CEO of a big Fashion Garment MNC of Europe working in India in 2013, during
his Venus-Venus period in Vimshottari. He was at the age of 39 then, which was a big achievement for him,
to become a CEO of multinational company working in India. He later became CEO of a big Indian Fashion
Brand in 2019, after changing job in Venus-Rahu period in Vimshottari.
Case study 3: Owner of India's top Water Purifier Brand
|Asc ||07°06' ||Aquarius ||Satabihisha|
|Sun ||07°38' ||Virgo ||U.phalguni|
|Moon ||08°23' ||Leo ||Makha|
|Mars ||20°32' ||Sagittarius||P.Shadha|
|Mercury ||00°45' ||Libra ||Chitra|
|Jupiter ||02°24' ||Cancer|| Punarvasu|
|Venus ||22°14' ||Libra ||Visakha|
|Saturn ||14°04' ||Libra ||Swati|
|Rahu ||18°16' ||Sagittarius|| P.Shadha|
|Ketu ||18°16' ||Gemini ||Arudra|
This Aquarius (Khumbha) lagna chart is of an IIT graduate engineer, who, after working in Petroleum
industry for years started a RO (Reverse Osmosis) Water Purifier company in late 1990s, which revolutionized
this segment in India. His Water Purifier Brand has become a household name, since last one decade. He
now exports his product to many countries. In his Aquarius lagna chart, lagna lord Saturn is exalted in the 9th
house with 5th lord Mercury and 9th lord Venus in a grand Raja Yoga and Dhana Yoga. From the Moon,
there is no major Raja Yoga, but there are some Dhana Yoga's, which is one of the reason that he got
success very late, after completing the age of 48. He started his water purifier manufacturing company in late
1990s, when he was 45 years of age. After some struggle, he got success in Rahu-Jupiter period (from
2003 to 2005). Rahu is in the 11th house of gains and it is with 10th lord Mars. Rahu's depositor Jupiter is
exalted and giving aspect to the 10th house of career
In Navamsa, Rahu is in the 10th house of career, and receiving the aspect of 9th lord Sun. In Dasamsa Rahu
is in the 3rd house along with lagna lord Mars there. Noticeable point here is that in his Birth chart, Saturn,
Mercury and Venus create the major Raja Yogas, but he didn't enjoy the dasas of these planets, during his
corporate career. He had Venus maha dasa from 1957 to 1977, when he was a student and had just started
his career, after Post-graduation in engineering
It is the maha dasa of Rahu that gave him tremendous rise, after the year 2002, when he had completed the
age of 48. Unlike the first two case-studies that we had discussed above, this native reached the pinnacle
of his industry very late, as he got favorable dasa at later stage of his life, though he had good Raja Yoga's
in Birth chart, Navamsa and Dasamsa charts. See in Navamsa, Dhanu lagna is rising with 5th lord Mars in
the 11th house with 7th and 10th lord Mercury in good Raja Yoga. Aspect of 11th lord Venus on them is a
great Dhana Yoga. In Dasamsa, the 10th house is getting the aspects of lagna lord Mars and 5th lord Sun.
The 10th lord Saturn is in the 11th house in own sign. It was the favorable dasa of Rahu, which gave him rise,
as it is the only planet which is involved in excellent yoga in all the three Varga charts discussed above.
Case study 4: MD of Global Financial Service Company
|Asc ||10°33'|| Taurus|| Rohini|
|Sun ||06°05'|| Virgo|| Hasta|
|Moon ||08°11'|| Leo|| Makha|
|Mars ||17°12'|| Cancer|| Aslesha|
|Mercury ||05°59'c ||Virgo || U.Phalguni|
|Jupiter ||02°14'R||Taurus || Krittika|
|Venus ||03°06'|| Leo|| Makha|
|Saturn ||05°44'R ||Aquarius|| Dhanishta|
|Rahu ||03°08'|| Gemini || Mrigasira|
|Ketu ||03°08'|| Sagittarius ||Moola|
This Taurus (Vrishabha) lagna chart is of a former MD (Managing Director) of a renowned global financial
service company, having its Head office in London (UK). This gentleman and his younger brother, both, are
famous financial consultants now. As per Sage Parasara, Sun-Mercury conjunction is the best Raja Yoga for
Taurus lagna natives. Sun, as the 4th lord, is with Mercury in the 5th house. The aspect of 11th lord Jupiter
on this combination makes a grand Dhana Yoga. He is a millionaire at present, and lives a lavish life in
London. The lagna lord Venus is in the 4th house in mutual aspect with 10th and 9th lord Saturn, forming
another grand Raja Yoga. Then notice here the strength of Moon which is getting 'Dig Bala' at the 4th house,
with benefic Venus and Jupiter in Kendra from it. We have a debilitated Mars in the 3rd house, which is
excellent. As per Raja Yoga Adhyayaa of Parasara Hora Shastra, a debilitated planet in the 3rd, 6th and 8th
house gives Raja Yoga, if lagna happen to be strong. Here the lagna is very strong, as its lord is involved in
good Raja Yoga.
, we have two benefic planets Jupiter and Venus in Kendra. The lagna lord Mars in mutual
aspect with 4th lord Moon is forming a good Raja Yoga. 5th lord Sun in mutual aspect with 10th lord Saturn is another Raja Yoga. In Dasamsa again, Aries, the 12th house of his Rasi chart, is rising. Here, there are
more number of Raja Yoga's. The 5th lord Sun with 4th lord Moon is a good Raja Yoga. Then we have a
good Gaja Kesari Yoga here, and there is a good 'Neecha Bhanga' for Venus in Dasamsa.
His rise started in Sun maha dasa (1987 to 1993), when he started working in financial institution. Later,
maha dasa of Moon (1993 to 2003) and Mars (2003 to 2010) gave him great success. We have discussed
above how these planets are involved in good Raja Yogas in three Divisional charts. Rahu dasa, since June
2010, is also giving decent success, as Rahu's depositor is Mercury, which is in good Raja Yoga with Sun.
Now let us take up a different case, in which a person, despite having good Raja Yogas in his Birth chart, got
only moderate success, as he didn't get proper dasa of planets, involve in these auspicious yogas.
Casestudy 5. CEO in Fashion house
|Asc ||07°17' ||Sagittarius||Moola|
|Sun ||08°01' ||Sagittarius||Moola|
|Moon ||17°03' ||Leo ||P.Phalguni|
|Mars ||26°18'R ||Taurus ||Mrigasira|
|Mercury ||21°55'c ||Sagittarius||P.Shada|
|Jupiter ||21°32' ||Pisces||Revati|
|Venus ||26°20' ||Libra ||Visakha|
|Saturn ||08°05'R||Cancer ||Pushya|
|Rahu ||27°28'||Libra ||Visakha|
|Ketu ||27°28'||Aries ||Krittika|
This native of Sagittarius (Dhanur) lagna has very good Raja Yoga of 9th lord Sun and 10th lord Mercury in the
ascendant. As per Sage Parasara, 9th lord and 10th lord make a very good Raja Yoga for Dhanur lagna natives.
Here the aspect of 5th lord Mars on this combination gives it additional strength. Then we have a strong lagna lord
Jupiter in 4th house in its own Rasi, making a good "Hansa Mahapurush Yoga" But the native got only
moderate success in Corporate world, why ? He also tried his hand in politics in year 2014, but didn't
get any success.
He is currently CEO of a medium scale Indian fashion garment company. Noticeable point here
is that in his chart, he does not have major Raja Yogas in Navamsa and Dasamsa charts. It is only in his Rasi chart
that there are good number of Raja Yogas.
Then notice that Moon is not involved in any big Raja Yoga in Birth chart and Navamsa. There is no benefic in
Kendra from Moon in Rasi chart and Navamsa. He didn't get the maha dasa of Mercury, which is in excellent
Raja Yoga in his Birth chart and is strong in Navamsa chart also. It is the maha dasa of Mars (2006 to 2013),
which made him CEO of a fashion house. Mars is strong from both lagna and Moon. In Rahu-Rahu period in
Vimshottari, he tried his hand in politics, but didn't get election ticket. Rahu is in the 11th house of gains, with 11th
lord Venus, but it is not involved in any Raja Yoga. In Navamsa and Dasamsa, Rahu is not involved in any good
Raja Yoga. So this native has to satisfy with moderate success in the past as CEO in a medium-scale company.
