Mahabhagya Yog : According to its definition prevalent in Vedic Jyotish, it is said that if a male native is born during daytime and the ascendant or lagna, Sun and Moon are placed in odd signs in his horoscope which means that if ascendant, Sun and Moon are present in the signs Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius or Aquarius, Mahabhagya yog is said to be formed in the horoscope which can bless the native with great financial fortunes, name and fame, a position of power and authority and many other things. The definition of Mahabhagya yoga differs in case of females and it is said that if a female native is born during night time and the ascendant or lagna, Sun and Moon are present in even signs in her horoscope which means that if ascendant or lagna, Sun and Moon are placed in signs of Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn or Pisces, Mahabhagya yog is said to be formed in the horoscope of such female which can bless her with all the above mentioned good things associated with Mahabhagya yog.
However, in actual practice the results of Mahabhagya yog may differ from person to person depending upon some other aspects of their horoscopes which have not been mentioned in the prevalent definition of Mahabhagya yog. Like in case of most of other yogas mentioned in vedic jyotish, the nature of Sun and Moon is the most important aspect of Mahabhagya yoga and both Sun and Moon should be strongly benefic in a horoscope in order to form strong Mahabhagya Yog in the horoscope. On the other hand, if one of these planets namely Sun and Moon is malefic in the horoscope, the results of such combination will dilute and such a combination of Sun and Moon will represent Mahabhagya yog with mixed effects which can sometimes give good results and which can sometimes give bad results to the native under its influence. The worst situation happens when both Sun and Moon are malefic or strongly malefic in a horoscope as in such cases, most of the good results related to Mahabhagya yog will not be observed and on the contrary some negative effects may be witnessed by the native under the strong influence of such a combination of malefic Sun and Malefic Moon. It should be noted that some natives having this strong and specific influence of malefic Sun and malefic Moon may still be able to gain financial prosperity or a position of power by virtue of such Mahabhagya yog in their horoscope, but such natives are either likely to earn money through wrong methods or bad practices or such natives tend to misuse their position of power and authority and all of these practices bring their downfall at one point of time and such natives may have to face defame instead of fame. Therefore, both Sun and Moon should be strongly benefic in a horoscope in order to form a strong and benefic Mahabhagya yog in the horoscope.
The strength of Sun and Moon also plays an important role in determining the extent of good results given by Mahabhagya yog and thus this aspect should also be studied with great care. For example, the presence of Sun in Aries can increase the strength of Mahabhagya yog in case of males whereas the presence of Sun in Libra can decrease the strength of Mahabhagya yog in case of males, due to the fact that Sun is more important planet in case of males and strength or weakness of Sun will directly affect the strength or weakness of Mahabhagya yog in the horoscope. Similarly, the presence of Moon in Taurus can increase the strength of Mahabhagya yog in case of females whereas the presence of Moon in Scorpio can decrease the strength of Mahabhagya yog in case of females, as Moon is more important planet in case of females and the strength or weakness of Moon will directly affect the strength or weakness of Mahabhagya yog in the horoscope. Apart from the strength of Sun and Moon, the placement of Sun and Moon in specific houses of the horoscope, the influence of other good and bad planets on ascendant or lagna, Sun and Moon, the presence of other good and bad yogas in the horoscope can also affect the results given by Mahabhagya yog in a horoscope. For example, the presence of benefic Sun and benefic Moon in the sign of Aries which is also the ascendant of the horoscope can form a strongly benefic Mahabhagya yog in case of males if the ascendant, Sun and Moon are free from the influence of any malefic planet as in this case, Sun is exalted, Moon is strong and the house of placement for this combination is very good. Hence all the important aspects of a horoscope should be analyzed properly before reaching a conclusion about the formation of Mahabhagya yog in a horoscope and before predicting the strength and results given by Mahabhagya yog in a horoscope.
Pushkal Yog:According to its definition prevalent in Vedic Jyotish, it is said that if in a horoscope, Moon is present with the lord of Ascendant, the lord of the sign falling in the house of placement of Moon and lord of ascendant, is placed in Kendra or it is placed in its sign of exaltation or in a friendly sign and it is casting an aspect on the ascendant and there is some benefic planet present in the ascendant, Pushkal yog is said to be formed in the horoscope which is said to bless the native with great financial prosperity, a position of great power and status in government and many other benefic things. The definition of Pushkal yog is bit difficult to understand, so let’s try to understand the formation of Pushkal yog in a horoscope, with the help of an example. If Virgo is the ascendant or lagna of a horoscope and Moon is placed in 3rd house with Mercury who is the lord of ascendant in this case, Mars who is the lord of third house in this case, is placed in seventh house of the horoscope and it is casting a direct aspect on the ascendant from seventh house, Sun is present in the ascendant or Lagna, Pushkal yog is said to be formed in the horoscope which is said to bless the native with the above mentioned benefic results.
It should be noted that, for Pushkal yog to form in a horoscope and for this yog to give strong benefic results, all the planets involved in the formation of Pushkal yog should be benefic in the horoscope and they should also be strong in the horoscope as in involvement of malefic planets in this combination will distort the formation of Pushkal yog and the presence of two or more than two negative planets in this combination can cause serious malefic results whereas the involvement of weak of debilitated benefic planets in this combination will reduce the strength and benefic effects given by Pushkal yog in a horoscope. For example, if Moon and Sun are working negatively in the above mentioned example of Pushkal Yog, the results produced by such a malefic combination will not be benefic and such a combination can produce mixed results instead of giving very good results. The presence of other good and bad yogas should also be checked properly before predicting the benefic results given by Pushkal Yog in a horoscope as the presence of a malefic yoga like Anant Kaal Sarp yog or Takshak Kaal Sarp Yog can significantly reduce the benefic results of Pushkal yog in the above mentioned example, as malefic Rahu and Ketu acquire the ascendant and seventh house in case of the above mentioned yogas and they also form a Grahan yog in the horoscope as one of them will afflict the Sun present in first house of the horoscope. Therefore all the important aspects should be checked properly from a horoscope, before predicting the benefic results given by Pushkal yog in a horoscope.
