Neech Bhang Raj Yoga.

Let's learn something interesting which makes a planet more powerful than exalted planet.

It is called Neech Bhang Raja Yoga. In English, it can be said Debilitation of a planet is getting extinguished and same planet is becoming Kingly.

It happens when a planet is in its debilitated sign and that sign's lord is either sitting in the same house or is exalted in another house.
For example - Let's say, Moon is in Scorpio, so Moon is debilitated. Now, Scorpio's Lord is Mars and Mars is also sitting in Scorpio with Moon or Mars is exalted in Capricorn then it creates Neech Bhang Raja Yoga.

Another example is in attached horoscope. Mercury is in 10th house of horoscope in Pisces. Hence, it is debilitated but at the same time Venus is also placed in the same house. For Venus, Pisces is the sign of exaltation. Now, it created a Neech Bhang Raja Yoga. Debilitation of Mercury is extintguished by exalted Venus in same house and Mercury has achieved Kingly status. This way a planet becomes more powerful than an exalted planet.

But as they say, in Astrology everything is in addition. So, debilitated planet will have its impact. Where it will have impact? So, this yoga only helps in professional life. In personal life, the planet which is debilitated behaves as a debilitated only. 

Other ways this yoga can manifest itself are as follows - 

  • If the lord of the house occupied by a debilitated planet is in a kendra or in a trikona from the Lagna or the Chandra-lagna.
  • If the planet that gets exalted in the sign where a planet is debilitated is in a kendra from the Lagna or the Chandra-lagna, or
  • If a planet is debilitated and is aspected by its exaltation lord.
  • If the lord of the exaltation house of the debilitated planet is in a kendra from the Lagna or the Chandra-lagna.
  • The debilitated planet is exalted in the Navamsa.
  • If a debilitated planet is aspected by another debilitated planet or by its own dispositor.
  • The lord of the navamsa occupied by the debilitated planet is in a kendra or a trikona from the Lagna which rises in a movable sign or the lord of the Lagna is in a movable sign.
  • If the lord of the sign that gets exalted in the sign occupied by the debilitated planet is in a trikona from the lord of the exaltation sign of the debilitated planet. or
  • If the lords of the debilitation and exaltation houses of the debilitated planet are in mutual kendras or in trikonas from the Lagna or the Chandra-lagna. Raja yoga occurs only if the debilitated planet owning a benefic bhava occupies a kendra in a benefic and friendly sign otherwise its debility is removed and regains its strength.

Hope this helps. Thanks,

2021-09-04 09:00:46

Scorpio lagan, moon in first house (debilitated) and Mars in 9 th house (debilitated) does this exchange of house bw Mars and moon will cause parivartan yoga or nich bhangh yoga or both?


2020-12-27 13:19:21

St - it is NBRY. It will help in professional life, career, finance but wont help in personal life.


2020-12-27 12:03:01

Sir I am an aries ascendant. My mars is debilitated in the 4th house and my moon is in 2nd house in rohini nakshatra. Is this a neech bhang raj yoga. And how will it help me.

2020-08-15 20:32:48

Namaste ! what happens when debilitated planet sits with exalted planet? Sun+Saturn in 6H in Aries


2020-07-16 07:18:44

I have neech bhang raj yoga like Einstein. He had Mercury debilitated in Pisces in the 10th house and had exalted Venus in Pisces in the 10th house. I have the exact same thing!

Swami Premanand Bharti

2020-04-11 10:32:19

@ Jeev - I think it would create a very weak VRY.


2020-04-10 11:30:09

Namasteji, will 3rd House (also called Dusthana by some schools) will qualify for VRY? For eg: Lord of 6th House Leo goes to 3rd House Taurus and Lord of 12th House AQU comes to 6th House and aspecting 3rd House. Many Thanks in advance!

2019-12-10 11:21:51

@ Mudit - Results will be limited and would come with stress. I dont follow or recommend any remedy or gemstone.


2019-12-10 00:53:28

What if the depositor is combust??? I have Saturn in 10 house combust and Jupiter debilitated in 12th house.... Aquarius ascendant ....I do wear a neelam if that would help in any way

Swami Premanand Bharti

2019-11-15 11:35:45

@ Mannu - Yes , it does.


2019-11-14 12:34:02

Mars debilitated in 2nd house. Jupiter debiliated in 8th house. Moon exalted in 12th house. Saturn exalted in 5th house. Does this planetary combinations form nbry?

Swami Premanand Bharti

2019-10-03 10:36:13

@ Ash - There is no NBRY here. Thanks,


2019-10-03 08:45:40

What if moon is in gemini in 7th house and venus is in virgo in 10th? Is there NBRY? Once I read the planet which is in kendra from moon suffers NBRY, but my brother has this on his chart and his life sucks and he has bad behavior. Mars is exalted with Ketu in 2nd house and Ketu is aspecting Venus but I dont know if that’s the cause of the problem if NBRY is really working. Thank you

2018-11-14 08:53:20

What about the aspects, that are being recieved by the planet causing neech bhang raj yoga. Do aspects from 6,8 and 12th lord cancel this rajyoga? Kindly guide!

Vishal S Saxena - Astrologer

2018-10-30 11:23:24

@ Alok - only 1 through Venus providing NBRY to Sun. I dont consider Rahu-Ketu for exaltation/debilitation. Thanks,

@ vs - mercury debilitation is i m least concerned abt. in example u have given, i think it will give good results overall of mercury and jupiter, but everything is in addition and person can have issues with siblings/communication (mercury) and relationship (jupiter - husband/children). but it will make a highly learned person.


2017-09-27 20:29:27

Dear Vishalji, I have read in various forums that if lord of 12th house sits in 12th house then it creates Vipareeta Raj Yoga and effects of Dushtana house is reduced. Suppose if Jupiter is lord of 3rd (pisces) & 12th (sagittarius) House and sits in 12th house; now if a debilitated mercury is sitting in the 3rd house - will the negative effects be less for mercury as the lord of the pisces sign (jupiter) is in mooltrikona sign although not in same house. I understand from your article that the planet lord needs to be exalted and sitting in same house as mercury for neech bhanga effect. But i have read in some forums that planet in mool trikona sign is more powerful than exalted. Hence the query. Thanks
