Types of Panch Mahapurush Yoga

Ruchak Yoga

The fiery and aggressive Mars is the reason behind Ruchak Yoga, which is also one of the most powerful Panch Mahapurush Yoga. Mars is connected to the assertion, passion, and energy. Talking about Ruchak Yoga, it is formed when Mars is in the house of…
When Mars is positioned in the Kendra (1st, 4th, 7th, and 10th house from the ascendant) or Trikona (1st, 5th, or 9th) with its signs Aries and Scorpio, or exalted in Capricorn, Ruchak Yoga is formed. If the other planets in your birth chart are also favourably placed, the benefits of Ruchak Yoga are multiplied even more!

Bhadra Yoga

The positioning of Mercury in your birth chart is responsible for the Bhadra Yoga. Mercury in Vedic Astrology is associated with matters of mind, sharpness, intelligence, and knowledge. Many times, it is also considered to be a planet of curiosity, which, as we can see, is directly connected to knowledge. As long as the formation of Yoga is concerned, Bhadra Yoga is formed when Mercury is placed in the house of…
As we can see, Bhadra Yoga is formed when Mercury is exalted or in its own sign, and it is placed in a Kendra (1st, 4th, 7th, 10th house from the ascendant) or Trikona (1st, 5th, 9th house from the ascendant). Mercury must be placed in the Gemini or Virgo for Bhadra Yoga to show its effects.

Hamsa Yoga

Hamsa Yoga is created by the positioning of Jupiter in the birth chart. In Vedic astrology, Jupiter is seen as the planet of growth and expansion. A teacher in the true sense, Jupiter is the ‘Guru’ that bestows the natives with wisdom. A Hamsa Yoga is formed when Jupiter is in the house of…
  • Aries, Virgo, or Sagittarius in 4th house
  • Cancer, Sagittarius, or Pisces in 1st house
  • Capricorn, Gemini, or Virgo in 7th house
  • Libra, Pisces, or Gemini in 10th house
This tells us that a Hansa Yoga is formed when Jupiter is in his own sign or exhausted, and located in the Kendra which are 1st, 4th, 7th, and 10th houses from the ascendant. People born in Aries, Cancer, Leo, Sagittarius, and Pisces can have the Hamsa Yoga in their birth chart, and the Yoga in these ascendants will be more powerful as these are Jupiter’s favourite signs.

Malavya Yoga

Step aside, Venus is coming with all the beauty and luxury. Venus is always considered to be the bestower of the riches and luxury, and with Malavya Yoga, it is not an exception. The fortunes that come along with Malavya Yoga will bless you when Venus is in the house of…
  • Aries, Scorpio, Virgo in 7th house
  • Gemini, Leo, Capricorn in 10th house
  • Sagittarius, Aquarius, Cancer in 4th house
  • Taurus, Libra, Pisces in 1st house
Malavya Yoga is formed when Venus is exalted or placed in its own sign at the same time positioned in the Kendra (1st, 4th, 7th, or 10th house) or Trikona (1st, 5th, or 9th house). Because of this, people born with Gemini, Cancer, Virgo, Sagittarius, Capricorn and Aquarius in their ascendant are likely to have Malavya Yoga in their birth chart.

Sasa Yoga

In one of the very few instances when Saturn is in the mood of Mercy, Sasa Yoga may be formed in your birth chart. Traditionally, Saturn is considered to be a dark and malefic planet that brings negativity. However, in the case of Sasa Yoga, this is turned upside-down! Wealth, success, power, and fame are some of the things that come with Sasa Yoga, which occurs when Saturn is in the house of…
  • Libra, Capricorn, Aquarius in 1st house
  • Cancer, Libra, Scorpio in 4th house
  • Aries, Cancer, Leo in 7th house
  • Capricorn, Aries, Taurus in 10th house
When Saturn is positioned in its own signs Capricorn or Aquarius; or exalted in Libra. Because of that, natives born in Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Capricorn, and Aquarius can have Sasa Yoga in their Kundali if the conditions above are fulfilled.

The natives being wealthy is also the theme across all the five Yogas. Other than these materialistic gains, here is what Panch Mahapurush Yoga can bring to your life:
