Yoga Karaka Planet.

Yoga Karaka Planet.

This is another unique concept of Vedic Astrology. A Yoga Karaka planet which can change the whole course of your life towards positivity.

So, in our horoscope, in total we have 12 houses. All these houses are divided in different categories. One such category is Kendra Houses and Trikona Houses.

Kendra Houses are Houses # 1, 4, 7 and 10.

Trikona Houses are Houses # 1, 5 and 9.

So, a Yoga Karaka planet is that planet which is lord of a Kendra House as well as a Trikona Houses. Like, for Cancer Ascendant, 5th house (a Trikona House) has Scorpio sign and 10th house (a Kendra House) has Aries sign. Now, both Scorpio and Aries are ruled by Mars. So, Mars is lord of a Kendra House and Trikona House, hence Mars becomes Yoga Karaka Planet for Cancer Ascendant people. Now, if Mars is even decently placed, then Mars Mahadasha or Antardasha can bring great results for Cancer Ascendant people in matter of Education and Career.

Unfortunately, every Ascendant does not have a Yoga Karaka planet as every Ascendant doesn't have a planet which can rule one Trikona and one Kendra Houses. Below is the list of Yoga Karaka planets for particular Ascendant -

1. Taurus Ascendant - Saturn [being the lord of 9th house (Capricorn - Trikona House) and 10th house (Aquarius - Kendra House)].

2. Cancer Ascendant - Mars [being the lord of 5th house (Scorpio - Trikona House) and 10th house (Aries - Kendra House)].

3. Leo Ascendant - Mars [being the lord of 4th house (Scorpio - Kendra House) and 9th house (Aries - Trikona House)]

4. Libra Ascendant - Saturn [being the lord of 4th house (Capricorn - KendraHouse) and 5th house (Aquarius - Trikona House)]

5. Capricorn Ascendant - Venus [being the lord of 5th house (Taurus - Trikona House) and 10th house (Libra - Kendra House)]

6. Aquarius Ascendant - Venus [being the lord of 4th house (Taurus - Trikona House) and 9th house (Libra - Kendra House)]

So, for these given Ascendants, these planets will work like a Yoga Karaka planet and in Mahadashas of these planets, person can reach extreme heights in the things related with the houses involved.

Hope this was useful. Vedic Astrology is a vast ocean, we will always find a new pearl every time we dive-in.

Hope this helps. Thanks,

P - we consider a house either as kendra house or trikon house in finding yoga karak planet. We cant treat it as both.

Hello Sir, Venus is yogkarak for kumbh lagna. But in the mean time it is badhak also as kumbh is a sthir lagna and libra owns 9th house. How come a planet be yogkarak and badhak simultaneously?
