Y O G A DRISHTI
There are 16 Tajik Yogas : They are - (1) Ishkavalayoga, (2) Induvarayoga, (3) Ithasalayoga, (4) Easaraphayoga, (5) Nakthayoga, (6) Yamayayoga, (7) Manahooyoga, (8) Kamboolayoga, (9) Gairikamboolayoga, (10) Kallasarayoga, (11) Raddhayoga, (12) Dupharikootayoga, (13) Duttottadiyoga, (14) Thambeerayoga, (15) Kutthayoga, and (16) Daraphayoga.
Iskavalayoga : Planets in kendras ( 1, 4, 7 and 10 ) and Panaparas ( 2, 5, 8, and 11 ) alone, without any in Apoklimas (3, 6, 9 and 12), produce this yoga. Results : Accession to wealth, happiness and good luck are the results.
Induvarayoga : Planets in Apoklimas without any in the other houses cause this yoga. The results are - disappointments in all undertakings, mental worry and physical ailments.
Ithasala yoga: (Orbs/Deepthamsa:= Sun 15o, Moon 12o, Mars 8o, Mercury 7o, Jupiter 9o, Venus 7o and Saturn 9o).
The Deepthamsa theory of the Tajaka writers is based on the comingling or intermingling of the rays of the planets in mutual geometrical positions, and the 'orbs' are the same in regard to any type of aspect trine, conjunction, etc. The only factor to be noted is that the Tajaka writers also take into consideration, the applying, full and separating nature of the aspect as formed between relatively slow and fast moving bodies. Suppose two planets (e.g., Moon 9o, Mars 25o) are in a sign, the Moon, the faster planet preceding Mars, the slower planet. The deepthamsa of the Moon extends till 21o of the sign. The Depthamsa of Mars extends (backwards) to 17o. So there is intermingling of the rays resulting in Ithasala Yoga which is also known as Muthasala.
Ithasala has three variations - Vartamana, Sampurna and Bhavishyad.
Let us consider the variation.
The Sun is in Aries 5o 30' 50'' and Mars in Aries 25o 30' 50''. The Sun's forward Deepthamsa (we shall use the word orb to denote Depthamsa) extends till Aries 20o 30' 50'' Aries. There is thus intermingling of rays between the faster Sun and the slower Mars resulting in ‘Vartamana’ Ithasala. Here the faster planets is behind the slower. This is a beneficial yoga the events being influenced depending upon the ascendant. Thus if Aries is the ascendant, the Ithasala between lords of the 1st and 5th indicates beneficial results in respect of the 1st and 5th house indications.
Jupiter is in Pisces 3o 4' 4'', and the Moon in Cancer 3o 5' 4''. It is a trine and is a friendly aspect. As both the planets are in mutual trine (within one degree) it is ‘Purna’ Ithasala.
Mercury in Virgo 22o 5' 5'', Venus in Libra 7o - fast - moving Mercury being behind the slow-moving Venus. The orb of Mercury extends till 29o 55' Virgo. The orb of Venus extends backwards to 30o Virgo. But soon the Deepthamsas are about to mingle. Hence this is ‘Bhavishyat’ Ithasala Yoga.
Summing up, in a Vartamana, there is merely a mingling of the orbs or Deepthamsas as in Chart No. 1.
Chart No. 2
In Purna, it is a full aspect (conjunction, trine, etc.) for planets remaining within one degree of exact conjunction, aspect, etc., as in Chart No. 2.
In a Bhavishyat (Chart No. 3), the Depthamsas are about to mingle, as the faster planet (which should be behind a slower planet) moves on.
It other words they correspond to applying, full and separating aspects of Western astrology.
Easarpha Yoga : When faster planet is ahead of a slower planet by one degree, it is Easarpha indicating detrimental results such as failure and disappointment.
Nakta Yoga : In the absence of Ithasala Yoga between a fast-moving and a slow-moving planet, if a faster moving planet is in between involved in aspect with the other two, there is transference of influenc from the fast moving planet to the slow-moving planet resulting in Nakta Yoga (Chart No. 4).
Suppose, when a question about acquisition of wife is put, the ascendant is Virgo, the lord Mercury is in 10o Leo, lord of the 7th Jupiter is in 12o Pisces and the Moon is in 11o Taurus. Here there is no mutual aspect between Jupiter (slow moving) and Mercury (fast moving). But the Moon (faster moving) is in square and sextile aspects to Mercury and Jupiter respectively.
Yamaya Yoga : When two planets are not in mutual aspect but are in Ithasala with a slow-moving planet, then Yamaya Yoga occurs.
The result is the object will be fulfilled through a third person.
In the adjoining horoscope (Chart No. 5), lord of the ascendant Venus is in the 7th. Lord of achievement Moon is in the 8th. There is no aspect between them as Venus' Deepthamsa ends at Taurus 2o 5' and that of the Moon commences at 2o 55'. But the slow-moving Jupiter has yoga with both Venus and the Moon and hence transfers the effect or light of the fast-moving Moon to the slower moving Venus, causing Yamaya Yoga.
Manahoo Yoga : When there is an Ithasala between two planets and Saturn and Mars are within the orb of the faster planet knocking off its light, Manahoo is caused, the result being failure, fear from enemies, involvement in debts, quarrels and loss of wealth.
For instance take Chart No. 6. The ascendant is 12o Libra. Venus lord of the ascendant is in 15o cancer. Lord of the 10th Moon is in 10 degree Taurus. Mars and Saturn are in 16o Taurus. There is Ithasala (sextile aspect here) between lords of the ascendant and 10th icdicating achievement. But Mars and Saturn are in Deepthamsa Yoga with the faster moving planet, neutralising Ithasala and producing Manahoo. Therefore the result is disappointment.
Kamboola Yoga : This Yoga arise when the Moon joins an Ithasala Yoga. The yoga is strong, medium or weak according as the planets and the Moon are strong, medium or weak. This yoga generally produces favourable results.
Take the following example (Chart No. 7) a query concerning the birth of children. Lords of Lagna and the 5th are in mutual square - Ithasala Yoga. The Moon is also involved in the yoga. Therefore it is Kamboola Yoga. The Moon is in his sign while the other planets are in friendly places making the Kamboola fairly strong.
Gairikamboola Yoga : When the Moon is with any other planet whether or not forming a yoga, and when any other planet has just entered the sign, the resulting yoga is Gairikamboola.
Khallasara Yoga : If the lord of Lagna is situated between the Moon and another planet and if there is no mutual intermingling of Deepthamsas, Khallasara is caused, the result being disappointment in all undertakings.
In Chart No. 8 the Moon is in Scorpio 2o, Jupiter in Sagittarius 10o and Venus in Capricorn 25o. No planet is within the Deepthamsa or orb of another planet. Therefore Khallasara Yoga is caused.
Radda Yoga : An Ithasala Yoga becomes Radda Yoga when a planet is in retrogression or in combustion or within the orb of the Sun, the result being success after much troubles.
If the Ithasala (which becomes changed into Rada) is between planets in Kendras and Apoklimas, there will be initial success but failure later on.
Dupparikutha Yoga : When a slow-moving lanet, exalted, occupying own house or otherwise auspicious enters into Ithasala Yoga with a faster moving planet not in exaltation, own house, etc., the Dupparikutha Yoga is caused, the result being fulfilment of desires and realisation of ambitions.
If the faster-moving planet is retrograde, combust, etc., the yoga cannot function.
Duttota Yoga : When both the ascendant lord and the significator of an event (i.e., when any two planets) are weak but one of them has an Ithasala when another planets in exaltation, own house, etc., Duttota Yoga is caused. the result is success through the help of another person.
In the example given herewith (Chart No. 9) lord od ascendant Jupiter is in 25o Capricorn. The significator of the event (marriage) - here lord of the 7th Mercury is in Aries 9o. Both the planets are weakly placed. But of these two, viz., Jupiter has an Ithasala(sextile) with Mars strongly placed in his own house Hence Duttota Yoga is caused. Marriage will take place through the help of another person.
Thambira Yoga : When a faster planet strongly disposed at the end of a sign is about to form Ithasala with a slow-moving planet - in the next sign. Thambira is caused. This yoga favours fulfilment of desires.
Kuttha Yoga : If a planet in the ascendant is aspected by a planet occupying a Kendra or Panapara which should be his own or exaltation house, Kuttha is caused. The result is fulfilment of desires.
Durupha Yoga : When a planet in the 6th, 8th or 12th is debilitated or occupies an enemy's house or is retrograde or combust and enters into Ithasala with another planet similarly afflicted, this yoga is caused. such a planet is powerless to give rise to any good results.
