About Astrology, the Science of Time, an indicative science which indicates events happening in the Four Dimensional Space-Time Continuum, the Eternal Continuum in which we exist, live and breathe.  

                                                   Cancellational Factors of Major Yogas - Raja Yoga BhangaAstrology is a deep and complicated science. There may be good yogas  in thehoroscope but because of some negative cancellational factors,Guest Posting  these    yogasmay not fructify. There are many a complaint that the " Yogas in my horoscopeare not experiential". This is because of some Bhanga ( cancellational factors )hidden in the natal chart.Regal Yogas are called Raja Yogas. They are formed by the conjuction of trinaland angular lords. There are lakhs of Raja Yogas which are described in   astro-logical texts. Let us analyse the negative factors which can cancel Raja   Yogas.1) Debilitated Planets2) Defeated Planets ( defeated in planetary war )3) Planets in inimical houses.4) Planets in Bhava Sandhis5) Retrograde Planets6) Combust Planets7) Planets associated with the North Node8) Vibala Planets ( planets devoid of strength )9) Lords of 6, 8 & 9 houses10) Lords of Angular HousesAll these cause Raja Yoga Bhanga.1) Debilitated PlanetsPlanets in their debilitation signs are considered to be weak. However, the scholarshould check for Neechabhanga Yogas, which offset debilitation. For   instance,if the dispositor or the exaltation dispositor is angular, either from the Moon orthe Ascendant, cancellation of Debilitation or Neecha Bhanga occurs. Neecha Bhangais considered to be a Raja Yoga. ( Raja Bhaveth Dharmika Chakravarthi ).2) Defeated PlanetsPlanets defeated in the Planetary war. Planetary war occurs   when two planetsare in conjunction within one degree. The victor is the planet whose longitude isless. The defeated one is the planet whose longitude is more.3) Planets in Inimical HousesThe planets in inimical houses are considered weak. During the directional influenceof these planets, the native suffers, unless there are cancellational factors    like thedispositor posited strong.4) Planets in Bhava Sandhis or Rasi SandhisPlanets at the Cusp between 2 houses is considered weak. So also planets at theCusp between two Zodiacal Signs.5) Retrograde PlanetsIf malefics retrograde, they will cause unnecessary wanderings and journeys.( Papa Vyasanatha Pumsam Kurvanthi Cha Vridhadanam ). Saturn & Mars retrograde cause unnecessary suffering and sorrow.6) Combust PlanetsPlanets when they become proximate to the Sun, become combust. Combust planetsare weak. For example, Mercury within 8 degrees of the Sun is very combust.7) Planets associated with the North NodePlanets in conjuction with the North Node, Rahu, is considered weak. Conjuctionmeans the planet should be within 12 degrees of the other planet.8) Vibala Planets ( planets devoid of strength )In the Sixfold Source of Planetary Strength, if a planet gets Shastiamsas lessthan the stipulated minimum, he is Vibala or devoid of strength.Minimum points for Planets                         Sun        390 Moon 360 Mars   300 Merc   420 Jup   390 Ven 330 Sat 300

A planet who gets lesser number of Shastiamsas than the stipulated minimum isconsidered to be Weak without any cancellation.9) Lords of 6, 8 & 12 housesThe lords of 6, 8 & 12 are malefics by ownership. The 6th lord brings diseases& problems from enemies, the 8th lord brings health hazards and the 12th lord  brings uncontrollable expenditure. 10) Lords of Angular HousesNatural benefics like Venus and Jupiter, when afflicted by Angular ownership,become malefics.The astrologer while assessing Raja Yogas should assess all these factors whileprognosticating results. The cancellational factors which we have highlighted can mar Yogas.The statment " The potential of my horoscope has not been actualised " has many hidden causes and they may be one of the ten cited above. When positive and negative influences commingle, prognostication becomes difficult. Maximum care must be exercised while dealing with Raja Yogas.
