Yogas are nothing but these special planetary combinations in the birth chart or horoscope which signify certain definite indications. These are combinations which might add strength to a person’s life or remove the vitality from it.
Things to Remember Before Interpreting Yogas in Astrology
- Yogas in astrology are always formed by more than one planet. Before interpreting Yogas it is necessary to assess the strength of planets based on house strength, shadbalas, and saptavargaja strengths, etc. If there is a great Yoga forming in a horoscope which has the ability to make the native very rich but the planets involved are weak then the Yoga may not come in to fruition and the person might have a very ordinary life.
- It is important to make it certain whether the planets involved in the Yoga are either Benefic or Malefic.
- It is also important to look for the conjunctions and aspects of the planets involved in the Yoga.
