Bhadra Yoga – Its Meaning & Role in Vedic Astrology

Yogas are of utmost importance in Vedic astrology. But, one needs a lot of expertise and skill to interpret the relative strength of them and determine how effective they really are in astrological predictions.

Yogas are formed when certain specific planetary combinations occur in a horoscope. These yogas may be benefic or malefic depending upon their placement in the chart. There are hundreds of yogas which are considered for the purpose of analysing a horoscope.

In this article, Bhadra Yoga of Hindu Astrology is explained which is benefic in nature and said to occur under the following circumstances:

·   When Mercury is placed in Kendra or Quadrant houses or in Trine or Trikona houses from Lagna or the Asendant and Mercury is in Gemini (its own sign) or in Virgo (its sign of exaltation).

·      When Mercury is very powerful and is not subjected to any evil influences.

Thus, we note that this yoga will only occur if one has Taurus, Gemini,  Virgo, Libra, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces Ascendants or Lagna.

Results: As Mercury is the natural significator of intelligence, education, communication, travels and younger siblings, the native having this Yoga will be strong, an intelligent speaker having eloquence in speech and well educated. He will be proficient in solving problems due to his sharp intelligence. He will have many travels and will gain much from such travels. He will have long life and will be helpful to his siblings throughout his life.

But, one thing that the readers of this blog should keep in mind is that the above-mentioned effects of this yoga are general in nature. The planet forming this yoga should not be weak, debilitated, afflicted, or in aspect with any malefic planet. It is also very important to take into consideration the strength of the house, conjunctions, planets in that particular house and various aspects over it, before arriving at any conclusion.
