The most popularyogas in Indian astrology are GajaKeshari Yoga, PanchaMahapurush Yoga, Neecha Bhang Raj yoga, Veeprit Raj Yoga, MahaBhagya yoga and Laxmi yoga etc.
Besides, there are numbers important Yogas in astrology that most of the people don’t know. Even sometimes the astrologer does neglect due to sheer ignorance or those yogas are not that popular among the astrologers and people as well.
My opinion is to pay equal attention to these yogas in your horoscope be it good or bad. I am going to explain these important yogas in a nutshell here.
The Pandits who are not having knowledge of PanchMahapurush Yoga in Vedic astrology should not be considered as astrologer. It has great significance in the predictive science of astrology.
The PanchMahaPurush Yoga happens due to Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn. The Panch MahapurushYogas named as Ruchak, Bhadra, Hansh, Malavya and Sasha yoga.

It makes the person very popular as a speaker, leader and rich. The native becomes intelligent, wise and extremely glorious in life.
Neech Bhang Raj yoga
The Neech Bhang Raj yoga happens when the debilitation of the planet gets cancelled and gives good result.
Sometimes we feel that the planet Saturn is weak in Aries. Hence, it will bring very bad result. However, it is not always a fact.
There are certain conditions in the birth chart that helps the debilitated planet to be stronger. Some conditions are explained here.
If the weak or debilitated planet is placed with an exalted planet then Neecha Bhang Raj yoga happens.
Example: the planet Mercury is placed in Pisces with Venus.
If the lord of the debilitated planet is either placed in its own sign or gives aspect to the debilitated planet, then Neecha Bhang Yoga happens.
Example:Mercury is in Pisces with Jupiter or Mercury is in Pisces and Jupiter is in Virgo.
If a planet is weak in the Lagna chart and exalted in the Navamsa chart, then Neecha Bhang Raj yoga takes place.
The native with Neech bhang Yoga becomes rich, prosperous and lead a kingly life.

Vipareet Raj yoga is one of the most important yogas in the astrology that makes the person rich, prosperous, knowledgeable and blissful.

Generally, the Mahabhagya yoga happens with the great people such as celebrities from sports and entertainment industry.
Also the influential people from both politics and bureaucracy do have MahaBhagya yoga.
How it happens: If a male native born during the day time and the planet Lagna(Ascendant), Sun and Moon occupies in odd signs such as Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius, Mahabhagya yoga takes place.
If a female born during night and the Lagna (ascendant), Sun and Moon occupies in the even sign such as Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces.
Both male and female born with Mahabhagya yoga becomes rich, affluent, influential and intelligent.

Apart from this there are some nefarious yoga such as KaalSarp Dosh, Sharpit Dosh, Kemdrum Yoga, Guru Chandal Yoga, Shakata yoga and Grahan Yoga etc. I am going to explain in short as to these harmful yogas.
Kaal Sarp Dosh
You might have heard the name KaalSarp Dosh many times in your life. It is a hazardous Dosh in the birth chart that can ruin your life.
This silent killer happens in the Kundli when all the planets remain in between Rahu and Ketu. There are 12 kinds of KaalSarp yoga that occurs in the natal chart.
These Kaal Sarp dosh bring different kinds of troubles and obstacles in life. Even this nefarious Dosh has not spared the celebrities as well.
You can have more insight on KaalSarp dosh by reading my article here. If you have a KaalSarp Dosh in the chart you should never ignore and perform KaalSarp Dosh remedies as soon as possible.
Shrapit Dosh is the birth chart is another killer. This nefarious Yoga of Saturn and Rahu can confine your life.
You might have a very good family background; you will not have success and achievement in life. It restricts the life to a great extent.
The shrapit dosh do happen when the planet Saturn and Rahu conjoins together in any house in the birth chart.
Some of the results due to Shrapit Yoga given here.
- Problem in pursuing education
- Uncontrollable financial crisis
- Frequent health issues of the kids at home
- Miscarriage and childlessness
- Marital discord between husband and wife
- Sluggishness, slowness and loss of business
- Domestic unhappiness
Kemdrum Dosh is in the Kundli is another slow killer that harms the native stealthily. Hence, it is extremely easy to detect Kemadrum yoga in the birth chart even by a layman.
I have written a comprehensive article on Kemdrum Yoga and it remedial measures in astrology.
Kemdrum Dosh takes place when the planet Moon places alone and there is no planet either side of it.
This mischievous yoga in the birth chart can bring many sorts of danger, obstacles, losses, calamities and what not.
You should not be worried about Kemadrum Yoga in the natal chart as it can get cancelled in certain circumstances. Hence, it is wise to consult an astrologer if Kemadrum Dosh is going to harm you and effective remedies to get rid of its mischief.
Guru Chandal Dosh
Almost everyone understands what is Guru Chandal Dosh. Etymologically, Guru means Brihaspati (Jupiter) and Chandal means an outcaste or mean.
Hence, Guru Chandal Yoga in the horoscope is a highly detrimental planetary combination.
The native can face various problems in life. Some of the problems I am sharing here.
- Frequent joblessness
- It makes the native jack of all trades, but master of none.
- The scandal becomes the part of life
- The native becomes panic-stricken
- The business faces loss
- The health issues like asthma, chronic constipation, tumor and hypertension etc. can become your unwelcomed guests.
Shakata yoga is one of the most inauspicious Yoga in the birth chart. This happens when the planet Moon and Jupiter places 6th, 8th and 12th house from each other. The Shakata yoga is said to be harmful Yoga in the birth chart.
However, it is not always harmful. The Dosha gets cancelled when the planet Jupiter is posited in the Kendras i.e 1st, 4th, 7th and 10th house.
If the planet Moon is in Cancer and Jupiter is in Sagittarius, it will create Shakata yoga. However, it will affect not the native’s life.
Results of the Shakata yoga are as follows
- You will face many ups and downs in life like wheel.
- The existing wealth will get lost all on a sudden.
- Confusion and inattention in everything
- The native do not keep the track of expenses
- The native becomes unpopular among friends.
- Astrologers are of opinion that some loss everything but regain it again.
Grahan Dosh is one of the notorious dosh in the Hindu predictive astrology. Grahan dosh takes place due to Rahu, Ketu, Sun and Moon.
If the planet Sun or Moon placed together with either Rahu or Ketu in the natal chart, then Grahan Dosh happens.
It also happens when the native takes birth during the period of Solar and Lunar eclipses. You should never neglect the remedies for Grahan Dosh if it happens in your birth chart.
Here is the snapshot as to what happens due to Grahan yoga in the Kundli.
The kids often face health issues
The married couples find it difficult to conceive
The frequent miscarriages make the life like hell
Domestic problem with the members of the family
Slow progress and procrastination becomes the part of life
The chronic ailments, depression and disappointment sticks to the native
No doubt, the good yogas are the boon for the native. It brings phenomenal achievements in life, business success, social standing, marital happiness, happiness from children, power, position and authority.
However, the evil yogas in the birth chart can make your life a hell. Hence, it is extremely important to consult a wise astrologer and get the solutions.
