Today in the field of astrology lots of research is going on by eminent scholar astrologers. Many new informations about astrology is found, and one of such info is the strength of of 29, 0, and 1 degree of a planet in the horoscope/kundli.In a horoscope/kundli the maximum degree of a planet in a rashi/zodiac sign is 30 degree.

In earlier text of astrology which is still in practice, the 30 degree is divide into 5 parts known as Avastas ( state ), and each avasta is given a name which also signify the strength of the planet according to its name.

They are named as Bal (child ) avasta, Yuva ( young ) avasta, Kumar ( full adult ) avasta, Vrudha ( old ) avasta and Mrutu ( dead ) avasta.

According to the name its well understood that a planet falling under 6 degree is in his Bal avasta and as we know that if a child is asked to perform a task, then the child can’t perform well and same will be the result of Mrutu avasta of a planet which fall beyond 24 degree as the planet is in death bed, can’t perform much.

For Vrudha avasta the performance of the planet is there but very slow. The best avasta ( state ) is Yuva and Kumar, as the planets in this state perform the best to give its results. In the research of astrology new findings in two of the avastas mainly Bal avasta and Mrutu avasta which is considered as weak state of planet where performance is negligible is found.

Speaking it in degree of the planet, the 29, 0 and 1 degree is very power full. The planets having these degree have huge strength in ones horoscope. It is said that during the transition stage of planet from one rashi/zodiac to other rashi, the planet at 29, 0 and 1 degree possess huge energy to move itself to cross the threshold between the two rashi/zodiac.

This is the degree at which the planet develop huge transformation in acquiring energy for its transit to the other rashi/zodiac and thus have the powerful strength in-spite of having a very low degree. So with advance research on astrology many new findings are discovered and thus our vedic astrology is also getting a new dimension of knowledge to know about the planet and its power better.


According to astrology gemstones has been a good remedies used by astrologers for many many years apart from other  remedies. Mainly in vedic astrology navaratna     i.e nine gemstones are considered to be the best and most of the astrologers only suggest the gemstones among the navratnas.


 1.     Ruby  : Respresents  Sun 
 2.     Pearl   : Represents  Moon
      3.     Emerald : Represents  Mercury
4.     Diamond : Represent  Venus 
5.     Blue Sapphire : Represent  Saturn 
6.     Yellow Sapphire : Represent  Jupiter 
7.     Cat’s Eye : Represent  Ketu 
8.     Hessonite : Represent  Rahu 
9. Red Coral  : Represent  Mars 


There are many branches in vedic astrology as different rishis gave their own sutras     ( formulas ) and so there are different parameters for choosing a right gemstone according to one’s horoscope. So astrologers use different parameters to study a horoscope and decide the best suited gemstone according to one’s horoscope. 

* Some of the astrologers choose gemstones according to one’s ascendant / lagna of the horoscope.

* Some of the astrologer study the whole horoscope to find out the planet with lowest degree, which is considered as the weakest planet need to be strengthen.

* There are astrologers considering the sublord of the 11th house to the best planet to give result as 11th house is considered as the house of fulfillment of desire and so the gemstone represent that planet is considered for wearing in the ring. 

* There are astrologer who recommend to wear gemstones as per running mahadasa period of an individual.


Not all gemstone suits a person according to astrology in one’s horoscope. Unknowingly wearing a gemstone of one’s choice which if unfortunately do not suits the individual according to astrology will create unnecessary problems in his life, as it will activate those houses which would give pain, frustration and problems to the individual’s life.


There is a wrong self made beliefs among people that Pearl or moonstone and Yellow Sapphire can be worn in ring by anyone as they are very auspicious planet and do not harm anyone.

It is a belief that any person who is very short tempered, always in panic, gets annoyed too much can wear pearl or moonstone, which will help them to calm down and get focused. 

There are also people who feels that Jupiter being sattvic (harmonious ) planet so wearing a Yellow sapphire will always give benefic results and so there is a understanding among the people that anyone can wear Yellow Sapphire gemstone ring thus get benefit results in their life.

There is one set of people in the society according to whom wearing a Blue Sapphire ring could be very dangerous, even if it is suggested by an astrologer. The funny believe according to them is that the gemstone should not be worn directly in a ring. It should be tied in a small blue fabric and need to be tied on the arm and observe if any negative incidents or events is happening to the individual in 15 days or not. If nothing wrong happens during these period of time then only the person can wear the Blue Sapphire gemstone ring, otherwise not.


Some of the examples of problems taking pear and yellow into consideration, if worn without consulting an astrologer.      

*When a person wears a pearl or moonstone ring without the consulting an astrologer then if fortunate and moon which represent pearl and moonstone be the lord of benefic house then would not harm the person, but unfortunately if the moon is the lord of the malefic houses 6th, 8th or 12th house then the person wearing this ring will welcome troubles. More over if the moon is the lord of any of the malefic houses is positioned in another malefic house then the problems will be more prominent. As moon governs mind so the problems will be more pronounced on mental level concerning the house of that horoscope.

*The same kind of effect is seen when a person wears a wrong yellow sapphire ring without consulting an astrologer. As Jupiter has the tendency to expand, so it will activate the malefic houses and expand the problems related to that houses and thus the individual who thinks of benefitting from wearing a yellow sapphire ring is actually driving himself in problems.

The kind and nature of problems will differ from person to person as there are other parameters which will determine the strength and nature of problems according to the significations of the planets with respect to mahadasa and some other parameters as per the branches of astrology and its dictum.

This is not astrology shastra, but this is an illiterate in astrology common man’s believe shastra which is dwelling in the society and many believe it and is spreading by mouth to mouth conversation as there is no book or literature on this sutra, neither by rishi nor by any astrologers.


In a horoscope there are many combinations of planets form due to their placements gives a particular results to every person having those type of combinations in their horoscope. Theses combinations are called “yoga” and our ancient rishis who gave us this beautiful knowledge of astrology has given different names to such combinations. There are many yogas and their dictums in astrology given by rishis. 

The yogas can give positive as well as negative results as per the combinations of the planets in the horoscope.


Gaja Kesari-Yoga is an auspicious yoga in Vedic Astrology. This yoga is based on the placement of Jupiter and Moon in a birth chart. This yoga is formed in the birth-chart when Jupiter is in angle from Moon. 1st, 4th, 7th and 10th places are called the centre houses in chart. This yogas bestows a person with wealth, luck, children, overall prosperity and knowledge as Jupiter along with Moon is considered the signifactor of all these auspiciousness in Vedic Astrology. Jupiter should be placed in own sign or in the sign of friend planet. When formed in Kendra from Ascendant or have the aspect of benefic planet like Mercury and Venus, this gives more auspicious result. This yoga also protects a person and cancels the adverse effect of many bad planets present in a chart.

Kedar Yoga is formed when all the seven planets are present in any of the four houses in a birth chart. Such a native is charitable and can earn lot of fame and income by virtue of his hard work from land, farming and agriculture.

Kahal yoga is formed when the lords of 9th and 4th houses are in mutual angles. However, the lord of the Ascendant should be strong. This yoga is also said to be formed when the lord of the 4th is in exaltation state or is in his own sign and has the aspect of 10th lord or is in conjunction with the 10th lord. This yoga has contradictory results. The native may be brave, kind and rich but on the other hand he may also be foolish. He has to struggle hard to achieve his goal in life. 

Kamal Yoga is formed by a planetary combination where all planets are placed in 1st, 4th, 7th and 10th houses of a birth chart. This yoga is considered as an auspicious yoga which makes the native to lead happy and renowned life. He becomes the masters of many arts.

Musala Yoga is formed when all the planets are present in the Fixed Signs i.e Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. The person with this yoga is dedicated towards his work and goal. These people are reliable and are committed towards their principles in life which in return give them fame and achievements. Such a native excels in administrative line. They accumulate wealth and immovable assets and lead a happy life. 

Neechabhang Rajyoga is the planetary combination for the cancellation of bad effect of a debilitated planet in birth chart. As the name of this yoga suggests, the cancellation of the bad effect of debilitated planet facilitate a person to attain the status of a king. He leads a life full of comfort and authority


This is one of the negative yogas in Indian Astrology unless it is cancelled by the placement or aspect of other benefic planets present in a chart. When there is no planet except Sun, Rahu and Ketu in 2nd and 12th house from Moon, Kemdrum yoga is formed. This yoga is known for poverty, failures, hard work and struggle in the life of native because Moon, the most important planet in Indian Astrology, gets no support from any planet. The affliction of Moon in this way keeps a person away from the blessing of Moon. However, it is observed that Kemdrum Yoga is weekend or cancelled when Moon has the aspect of benefic planet/planets. The same is result when some positive planet is placed in the Kendra from Moon or Ascendant. Kendras are known as 1st, 4th, 7th and 10th houses. 

Daridra Yoga is formed when the lord of the eleventh house is placed in the sixth, eighth or twelfth house of a kundli. There are other planetary combinations in chart which may form Daridra Yoga. Particularly 11th house, 9th house and 2nd house in a chart are also concerned with wealth and luck. If the lords of these houses have any connection with 6th, 8th or 12th house or with the lords of these houses, Daridra Yoga is formed. The lords of 6th house, 8th house or 12th house may also form this yoga. So this yoga may be formed in many ways. The conjunction or the aspect of benefic planet on this combination may reduce the reverse effect of this yoga while the presence or aspect of malefic planet may make this yoga more strong creating difficulties and hardship in life. 

When the luminaries are affected by the presence of Rahu and Ketu in a chart, this yoga is formed. Both Sun and Moon are known as luminaries in Indian Astrology. Sun represents soul while Moon represents mind. When these are affected by most malefic planet Rahu or Ketu, the persons may not get stable life and he may feel restless throughout his life on account of weak and afflicted Sun or Moon.

This is also a malefic yoga. When Jupiter is in the 6th or 8th house from the Moon, this bad yoga is formed. Sixth and eighth houses are known as negative houses in a chart. Jupiter, the planet of prosperity, knowledge and religion get affected due to its placement in 6th or 8th house from Moon, which is considered as important as Ascendant. So, the results are unhappiness in life, arrogant nature and delay and obstructions in marriage particularly in case of girls.

This is again an adverse yoga in chart which is formed when Jupiter is combusted with Rahu in a chart. Rahu is known for its negative results and obstruction in any auspicious work. Hence, a native may be deprived of from the benefic results of Jupiter like good or higher education, smooth married life and prosperity due to impact of Rahu.


These yogas operates only during their fructification period called Mahadasa period.
Mahadasa is the period designated to each planet and they are of different length of period, for example Venus has a ruling period of 20 years, Ketu has 7 years, Sun has 6 years, Moon has 10 years, Mars has 7 years, Rahu has 18 years, Jupiter has 16 years, Saturn has 19 years and mercury has 17 years.


There are many people having very good yogas in their horoscope, but they do not get the results of it because yoga operates only during the fructification period of their mahadasa and some person do not get the chance of the commencement of that good mahadasa period in their life. So this are the people in spite of having good yogas in their horoscope, do not get the good result of it and thus can be said unfortunate.
In the same way there are people having bad yogas in their horoscope, but they are not effected at all because of it, because they are fortunate that in their life they will not have the commencement of the inauspicious period of the mahadasa.    
So yogas give its results only during the operational period of its mahadasa and a person experience the results of it, be it positive or negative.
