We have learned a lot about the importance of Lagna lord, Exalted planet and Yogakarka planets and their significations in the horoscope. However, the role of Yogi and Avayogi planet is hardly taught and applied in the analysis of horoscope.
The truth is that they are also very important and at times can make a significant change in the outcome of predictions. Of-course, the study of Maha Dasha, Antra Dasha, and Pratyantar Dasha lord remain the prime factor while judging and predicting the future but due importance must be given to these as well.
The yogi point is a positive point in the natal chart that indicates prosperity and the rise of fortune in our life.
Whenever a planet transit over this yogi point. It brings good changes for the native both financially and mentally. The transit of the slower planet brings gains and good luck for a longer duration of period whereas faster planets bring sudden changes. Moreover, the sign and house where this yogi point falls certainly enhances the significations of that sign and house.
Yogi planet: This planet acts as a catalyst that helps in success and prosperity in life during their Dasha period.
Avayogi: This is just the opposite of Yogi planet which creates obstacles and hindrances in success and prosperity.
Duplicate Yogi: This is just like a shadow of the Yogi planet. It helps the yogi planet as we say that God helps those who help themselves. The PACE (Placement, Aspect, Conjunction or Exchange) is just like “Sone pe Suhaga”
Speaking of wealth and abundance, Lord Kuber definitely deserves a mention. Click here to read: The epic saga of Lord Kuber: From thief to a demi-god
The exact longitude of this yoga becomes the yogi point. The nakshatra lord where this point falls becomes a Yogi planet. The sign having this point, its lord becomes the Duplicate yogi planet. The lord of 6th nakshatra from the yogi nakshatra is the Avayogi nakshatra and its lord is the Avayogi planet. (The rule that sixth house represents our enemies continues with yogi and Avayogi planet also)
Let us suppose that we have a Scorpio ascendant and the longitudes of the Sun are 2 signs 3 degrees 26 minutes and that of the Moon are 8 signs 8 degrees 41 minutes. To
We add the longitudes of The Sun & The Moon and Constant
S 0 ’‘
2 3 26‘
+ 8 8 41‘
+ 3 3 20‘
= 13 15 27 after expunging 12 signs we get 1 sign 15 degree 27 minutes.
Now this is our ‘YOGI POINT’ which falls in Rohini Nakshatra whose Lord is Moon. So Moon becomes the Yogi planet. So it is likely to enhance the significations related to Taurus sign and 7th house (for Scorpio ascendant) signifying marriage, spouse and business partnership.
The sign lord of this point is Venus (Lord of Taurus sign) will be duplicate Yogi planet and act as helping hand to Yogi planet.
Lastly for Avayogi planet, 6th Nakashtra from Rohini is Ashlesha, whose lord is Mercury. As such Mercury becomes Avayogi planet.
