Its a pity that these days Internet Astrologers new breed who practice Jyotish don’t even read Classical Jyotish books to understand properly the Yoga chapter of Jyotish under the guidance of some learned experienced Jyotishi and start giving predictions to their clients is really astonishing.
Here i just tried to emphasize the need to read Old Jyotish classics or books by world renown researchers scholars to understand things in clear way instead of todays cook books.
I may here add that a good Astrologer should have knowledge of both systems of Astrology that is Western Astrology and Jyotish as both compliment each other and add a lot of new knowledge for the Astrologer. Whose prime Job is guide his Clients properly thru whatever matter he wants to discuss. Its my humble experience that all those Astrologers who have deep Knowledge from Both Schools are really v good Astrologers.
Ok now revert back to the topic at hand, In one of Jyotish group someone asked recently the effects of Guru Chandal Yoga and wanted some clarifications as some writer from chenai who wrote a book on Jyotish has written Rahu and Saturn Yoga as Guru Chandal Yoga. I am really amazed that ppl who even don’t understand the basics of Astrology are writing books on it and making fool
As much i know Guru Chandal Yoga is the Combination of Jupiter and Rahu. So i tried to write a this small contribution to clear some confusion about this Yoga in minds of Astrologers.
Here is the definition he gave for this Yoga. The person earns money which is against society, maybe like earning from liquor sale etc. taken from the book kudumha jothidam published in chennai.
My Answer to Above There is no doubt that the Person having the Yoga of Jupiter and Rahu gives money from unfair, foul, illegal sources but not specifically from liquor sale and this happens in 11th house specifically only, not in any other house.
Another Female Astrologer wrote Guru Chandal Yoga main padhaai beech main chhut jaati hai bahut adchane aati hain. Meaning it disturbs education and person leaves it in between.
My Answer to above Ur observation is correct with respect to disturbance to education but it only happens if the combination of Jupiter and Rahu happens in 11th House and sometimes it don’t disrupt the education of native but his one of his/her children’s provided that child horoscope also shows disturbance.
I saw this definition of Jupiter conjunct Rahu or Ketu in Sawarath Chintamani translated by J N Bhasin Ji.
In 10th House Effects under Destruction of Good Yogas He Writes *****If Jupiter is with Rahu or Ketu and is aspected by a malefic planet it creates ”’Chandal”” Yoga i.e. a yoga denoting bad characteristics of the Native.
Opposite Yoga is also written in next sloka which i am also giving for those who don’t have this classic with them. I think everyone who loves Jyotish should have this Classic, as its the most clearly written book with respect to twelve bhava readings.
*****Even when Jupiter is located with Rahu, Ketu or Saturn, but is aspected by Venus and Moon, the native even if he be a Shudra is treated as a Brahman, efficient in good Knowledge.
Jataka Parijat also mention this Yoga and according to the Translation of Subramanyam Shastri, “””When jupiter in conjuction with Rahu or Ketu is aspected by malefic planets, the person born will do base acts.
Above is according to the book The Mysteries of Rahu in a horoscope written by a Shiv Raj Sharma a Student of Respected K N Rao ji.
So we see that Definition given by Savarath Chintamani is based on Jataka Parijata.
Shri K N Rao Ji also quote the examples of C. Rajagoplachari and Nehru for this Yoga. He writes the effects for this yoga as that it can be from mild non-conformism to intense jealousy and violent vituperative expressions. With the first example he says it was very mild and in case of Nehru he says it was more intense as it happens in the 6th house of aggressiveness. He was known for his most wild expressions against Hinduism, the faith in which he was born.
To be continued
I will be writing the definition of this Yoga in 12 Houses v soon so check back
