According to its prevalent definition in Vedic astrology, when Sun and Mercury are conjunct in a horoscope which means that Sun and Mercury combine with each other in a horoscope, BudhAditya yog is said to be formed in the horoscope, which can bless the native with intelligence, wisdom, leadership qualities, name and fame, analytical nature, communication skills and many other things depending on the strength and placement of this yog in a horoscope as well as depending on the overall tone of the horoscope.
Mercury as we know is the innermost planet of our solar system which means that it is closest to the Sun and accordingly it is found present with the Sun in most of the horoscopes and accordingly, BudhAditya yog should be formed in all of these horoscopes which means that most people should be blessed with the good results indicated by this yog which is obviously not the case in actual practice. It means that there is something more to the formation of this yog than what has been mentioned in the prevalent definition of this yog.
The primary condition for the formation of any benefic yog in a horoscope is that all the planets involved in the formation of such a yog should be working benefic in the horoscope and accordingly it implies that for the formation of a BudhAditya Yog in a horoscope, both Sun and Mercury should be benefic in that horoscope. The combination of benefic Sun with malefic Mercury, the combination of malefic Sun with benefic Mercury and the combination of malefic Sun with malefic Mercury will not lead to the formation of BudhAditya yog in the horoscope and on the contrary, the significances of the positive planet involved in these combinations will suffer.
For example, significances of the Sun will suffer when this combination is present in a horoscope and Sun is benefic whereas Mercury is malefic and same is the case with the other combinations. The worst kind of combination is present in cases where both Sun and Mercury are malefic in the horoscope as the significances of both Sun and Mercury will suffer in this case which can cause serious problems for the native and no BudhAditya yog is formed in the horoscope.
And even if, both Sun and Mercury are benefic and conjunct in a horoscope and they are forming BudhAditya yog in the horoscope, the strength and placement of this yog in the horoscope, the effect and influence of the other benefic and malefic planets on this combination of Sun and Mercury should be properly observed and the overall tone of the horoscope should also be analyzed carefully before reaching a conclusion.
For example, the benefic results of this yog will decrease considerably if this yog is present in the sign of Libra or Pisces as Sun and Mercury respectively are debilitated in these signs and a weak Sun or a weak Mercury will not contribute much towards BudhAditya yog even when both these planets are benefic in the horoscope. Similarly, the results of this yog will be reduced when a Pitra Dosh is formed in a horoscope by virtue of the affliction from a malefic planet to Sun as the formation of this Pitra Dosh will reduce the strength of Sun considerably and accordingly it can’t contribute much towards BudhAditya Yog. Hence all the important factors should be analyzed properly before confirming the formation of BudhAditya yog in a horoscope and before predicting the overall results of this yog.
