According to Vedic Astrology, A Yoga is a special combination and relationship between a planet to planet, planet to Rashi (Zodiac Sign), or Bhava (House) to another in terms of Aspects, Conjunctions, and Placements. Even the same relation and combination Found in Varga Chart (Divisional Chart). In other words, we can say that a Yoga is the special combination and consideration of the Planets that creates special effects by their directional impacts and Creates a Benefic or malefic Effects on the Native’s life. 

In Vedic Astrology, there are thousands of auspicious and in-auspicious yogas. Many great Indian Astrologers like Dr. B V Raman and great Bengali astrologer Late Shri Harihar Majumder (Jyotish Yoga Sanchayan, Bengali Version), Late Ganapati Sarkar (Shubha Aushubha Yoga) and others great astrologers of India classified yoga in different categories or groups for the convenience of astrologer such as Moon or Lunar Yoga, Sun or Solar Yoga, Nabhas Yoga, Pancha Maha-Purush Yoga, Dhana Yoga, Daridra Yoga, Raj Yoga, Sannyasa Yoga, Adhi-Yoga and also there are some SPECIAL JAIMINI YOGA as per Jaimini Astrology principles.  

Generally the SUN, the MOON and Other Five Planets are responsible for the Yogas in astrology. These planets are responsible for STRENGTHENING or WEAKENING the horoscope of the person in terms of yoga and creates a great impact on the native’s life. The effects/results of these Yogas are bestowed in their respective Dasha and Antar-Dasha (Main Period, Sub-Period and Sub-Sub-Period).


According to Vedic astrology, the most powerful yoga is the RAJA YOGA. But there are some SPECIAL YOGAS  those are equally important. Like Pancha-Maha-Purush Yoga, Gaja-Keshary Yoga, Ayur Yoga, Dharma-Karma-Dheep Raj Yoga, Adhi-Yoga, Chatu-Sagar Yoga and Akhanda-Samrajjya Yoga etc. So, when this yoga is free from the malefic impacts of the trine lords, lords of the ninth and the tenth house, or lords of the fourth and the fifth house, or associated with Benefic lord and Atma-kakaraka  it creates auspicious effects in the horoscope of the person.


How does a Yoga Give Results in a chart ?

Yoga in a birth chart can be seen at the time of birth of a person. These Yoga in horoscope come from the various combinations as explained above and mostly these yogas are a result of person's past life(s). Once any Yoga gets formed or appear in your horoscope, you cannot change it. Yoga in a horoscope can be BENEFIC (Good/Auspcious)  or MALEFIC (Bad/In-Auspcious). Yoga does not mean only good Yoga but can be bad Yoga also. But we get the results depend on how do you apply your "free will" in the present life. "Free will" is your Karmas of present life and it is in your hands to activate good yogas to get best results from them. Same way, it depends on your karmas how to keep the bad Yoga in your birth chart pacified or de-activated.
