Astrology says that Raj yoga is a yoga which provides the fortune of a king to the native who has this yoga in his kundli (birth chart). Every person wants a happy life but happiness is not in everyone’s fate in equal amount. A person’s joy and sorrow can be assessed determined by the positions of planets and yogas in his or her kundli.
The term ‘Raj Yoga’ has two parts viz. Raj and Yoga. Raj yoga in astrological terminology means that a yoga which provides happiness like a king has. In this article we will discuss what Raj yoga is and what it gives a native.
Raj yoga is not a very special yoga. Raj yoga is formed by the combination of auspicious planets in a kundli. To judge the planet according to the Ascendant it is required to observe the auspiciousness and inauspiciousness of planets, significator, insignificator, prime significator of combining planets.
Besides these the natural auspiciousness or inauspiciousness of planets should also be taken in to consideration. For Raj yoga exalted planets are required in Kendra house, exalted Venus in the fate line, and relationships between navamsha and dashamsha is vital.
Planet in debilitated sign do not mean that they will provide malefic result as the lord of the seventh house will aspect the same house if a planet is stationed in a debilitated sign. The result of this development will also depend on the relationships of other planets.
Raj yoga is not formed by any special planet in a kundli but all planets are equally responsible for its formation. Astrology says that Moon in its various placements has a huge impact upon the yoga. A debilitated Moon can become a barrier for a planet combination that provides positive results.
If the triangle or Kendra houses have the aspect of Venus or Jupiter then Raj yoga gives its full results, and the native gets happiness which can be compared with the happiness of a king.
