There was a request to write about Sakata Yoga.
Sakata Yoga is formed when a native has Moon placed 6th house or 8th house or 12th house away from Jupiter. It is considered as one of the inauspicious yoga.
For example, if someone has Jupiter in 1st house/Aries then Moon in 6th house/Virgo or Moon in 8th house/Scorpio or Moon in 12th house/Pisces will create this yoga.
Reasons behind considering it as an inauspicious yoga are as follows –
In the most generic sense, Moon is Mind and Jupiter is knowledge. 6th house is house of obstacles, 8th house is house of instability and 12th house is house of losses.
So, when Moon is 6th from Jupiter, it is considered that person can feel a sense of obstacle or difficulties in matters of gain of knowledge and wisdom.
When Moon is 8th from Jupiter, it is considered that person can feel a sense of instability or ups/downs in matters of gain of knowledge and wisdom.
When Moon is 12th from Jupiter, it is considered that person can feel a sense of loss in matters of gain of knowledge and wisdom.
Now, my interpretation is that first of all, every house represents truck-load of things.
So, when Moon is 6th from Jupiter, it can also make a person interested in legal or medical education as 6th house relates with Law and Medicine Career.
When Moon is 8th from Jupiter, then person can be inclined towards research oriented education. It can also show that person’s Guru can bring a major change in life.
When Moon is 12th from Jupiter, it can also be interpreted that person may take spiritual or psychology related education.
So as always, 1 planetary position can indicate thousands of results and in the end it depends on where person is interested in and focusing on. He will get those results.
Also, as always, what really matters is the dignity of planets. Even if Jupiter-Moon are 6th house/8th house/12th house away from each other but if they are in strong dignity (own, exaltation or friendly signs) then they can still give good results.
This is why, they also made Mukuta Yoga where Mukuta Yoga is formed when Jupiter-Moon are 6th house/8th house away from each other but in own or exaltation signs. For example, Moon is in Taurus and Jupiter is in Sagittarius or Moon is in Cancer and Jupiter in Sagittarius again. This will create Mukuta Yoga. As Mukuta means Crown, this yoga can bring authority and recognition to the person during Moon dasha or Jupiter dasha.
So, although Mukuta Yoga is one of Sakata Yoga, still it can give good authority and recognition to person.
This is my understanding of Sakata Yoga and Mukuta Yoga.
Hope this helps. Thanks,
