Vedic Jyotish is full of good and bad yogas and many of these yogas or doshas have been widely misunderstood from time to time and Guru Chandal yoga also called Guru Chandal dosha is one of these yogas which is associated with bad and bad things only by most of vedic astrologers as these astrologers believe that the presence of a Guru Chandal yoga or dosha in a horoscope can only give bad streaks to the character of the native under the influence of this Yoga whereas some learned vedic astrologers are of the view that a Guru Chandal yoga can also give very good results and it can produce very good philosophers, spiritual persons, people working for charitable causes or noble causes and other such kinds of people which can become the pillars of society and which can give a new direction to the society and hence the formation of a guru chandal yoga or dosha should be studied properly in a horoscope before reaching any conclusions about this yoga.

According to its definition prevalent in Vedic Jyotish, if Jupiter is placed with either one of Rahu or Ketu in a horoscope or kundali, or if Jupiter is having a mutual aspect relation with either one of Rahu or Ketu in a horoscope, a guru chandal yoga is formed in the horoscope which can make the native indulge in immoral, unethical and illegal activities and the character and personality of such a native is corrupted. Guru is the name given to Jupiter in vedic Jyotish and Rahu and Ketu have been called Chandal here and hence a combination of Jupiter with any one of Rahu or Ketu either by means of placement of by means of aspect, leads to the formation of a guru chandal yoga or dosha in the horoscope. For example, if Jupiter is placed in first house of a horoscope along with Rahu or Ketu, or if Jupiter is placed in first house of a horoscope and it is having an aspect relation with Rahu or Ketu which may be present in 5th or 9th house of the horoscope, a guru chandal yoga or dosha is said to be formed in the horoscope. Many vedic astrologers believe that the presence of Rahu with Jupiter makes a person very materialistic and such a person can go to any limits and measures in order to fulfill his materialistic desires and he can adopt underhand or illegal methods in order to fulfill his desires. It is also believed by many vedic astrologers that the relation of Ketu with Jupiter in a horoscope, either by means of placement or by means of aspect can distort the personality of the native and this combination can produce some of the most cruel, religiously narrow minded and hypocrite kind of people which can cause serious problems for the society they are living in.

And though there are many other bad things which are associated with guru chandal yoga or dosha, it should be note here that a guru chandal yoga is not always bad in every horoscope and the presence of this yoga in some horoscopes can bless the natives with top class humanitarian qualities and as a result it can make such natives, much respected by the societies they are living in. The combination of Jupiter and Rahu in a horoscope can enhance the materialist desires and ambitions of the native to great extents but it should be noted here that the nature and working of both Rahu and Jupiter needs to be carefully studied from a horoscope before predicting the results of a guru chandal yoga or dosha in a horoscope formed due to combination of Jupiter and Rahu. There is no doubt that a combination of a malefic or very malefic Rahu along with a benefic Jupiter can seriously disturb the general as well as specific significances of Jupiter in a horoscope and as a result such a native can have various kinds of distortions in his personality depending upon the significances of Jupiter in the horoscope. For example, if Jupiter signifies the profession of the native in a horoscope and a guru chandal yoga or dosha is formed in the horoscope by combination of Jupiter and Rahu, such a native is likely to engage in illegal or immoral professions as the influence of malefic Rahu on Jupiter will corrupt Jupiter which will reflect through the significance of Jupiter in the horoscope.

The worst kind of guru chandal yoga or dosha can be formed in a horoscope when both Jupiter and Rahu are working malefic in the horoscope and a guru chandal yoga is formed due to combination of Jupiter and Rahu in the horoscope. The results can be very destructive in this case depending upon the significance of Jupiter, the house of placement of this yoga, the sign of placement of this yoga and some other aspects of the horoscope. For example, if Jupiter signifies the house of ancestors in a horoscope and a guru chandal yoga is formed in the horoscope by virtue of placement of a malefic Jupiter and a malefic Rahu in 10th house of a horoscope, such a native is likely to bring serious disgrace to the name of his family and ancestors by virtue of very bad karmas done by him. Another possible combination of Jupiter and Rahu in a horoscope is the combination of a benefic Jupiter with a benefic Rahu which is again said to form a guru chandal yoga or dosha in the horoscope according to the definition of this yoga but which gives results which are quite opposite to the results associated with guru chandal yoga or dosha. For example, if both Jupiter and Rahu are working benefic in a horoscope and a guru chandal yoga or dosha is being formed in the horoscope due to a combination of Jupiter and Rahu in 5th house of the horoscope, such a combination can produce great philosophers, great social workers, great spiritual people, great saints and many other such kind of people who set examples for the society, who work for the betterment of society and who are respected and followed by a large number of people.

The final combination of Jupiter and Rahu includes the placement of a malefic Jupiter with a benefic Rahu which is also said to form a guru chandal yoga or dosha in the horoscope, according to the prevalent definition of this yoga or dosha, but the actual results can be very much different in this case and the significances of Rahu will suffer in this case due to an affliction from a malefic Jupiter which defies the very name of guru chandal yoga or dosha as Rahu is not working as a chandal in this case and Jupiter is not working as a guru in this case. Hence this fact is of top importance as to which of Jupiter and Rahu is working benefic and which is working malefic in the horoscope and a thorough study of the horoscope, the significances of Jupiter and Rahu, the placement of this combination in a specific sign and house of the horoscope and other important aspects of the horoscope should be studied carefully before predicting the results of guru chandal yoga.

Similarly in case of a guru chandal yoga or dosha formed by Ketu, there are four possible combinations of Jupiter and Ketu, just like Jupiter and Rahu, and the results of guru chandal yoga or dosha can be altogether different in different cases depending upon the benefic or malefic nature of Jupiter and Ketu in the horoscope, placement of Jupiter and Ketu in the horoscope and overall tone of the horoscope. A combination of malefic Jupiter and malefic Ketu can produce some of the most hated personalities of their times as the natives under the strong influence of such a guru chandal yoga or dosha can trouble, harass, harm or even kill many people in the name of race, religion, caste and other such things whereas a combination of a benefic Jupiter and benefic Ketu can produce spiritual gems of its time and the natives under the strong influence of this kind of guru chandal yoga or dosha are likely to be spiritually advanced and enlightened and such natives work for the well being of entire universe. Therefore a guru chandal yoga or dosha is not all about bad results and bad things and on the contrary, it can produce very good results if both the planets involved in the formation of guru chandal yoga are working as benefic planets in the horoscope.
