According to the prevalent definition of Harsha Yoga, it is said that if in a horoscope, the lord of 6th house is placed in eighth or twelfth house of the horoscope, Harsha Yog is formed in the horoscope which can bless the native with healthy body, great wealth through various sources, good family life, sound financial position, respect and influence in society, a position of authority and many other types of good results. We have already discussed in the previous chapter named in Vipreet Raj Yoga that Harsha Yog is one out of three types of Vipreet Raj Yogas and for any of these Yogas to form in a horoscope, two additional conditions should also meet, apart from the condition mentioned in its prevalent definition.

The first additional condition is that the lord of the sixth house forming Harsha Yoga in a horoscope by virtue of its placement in the eighth or twelfth house of the same horoscope should be positive and the second additional condition states that such lord of sixth house should be active. Hence in order for Harsha Yoga to form in a horoscope, the lord of the sixth house should be placed in eighth or twelfth house of the same horoscope, it should be positive and it should be active. Knowing the conditions required for the formation of Harsha Yog in a horoscope, let’s now look at the benefits that a native can get when Harsha Yoga is formed in his horoscope.

Coming to the good effects produced by Harsha Yog in a horoscope, it should be understood first that this Yoga is a Vipreet Raj Yog and it is not a usual type of good Yoga. It means that a usual type of good Yog is formed in positive conditions in a horoscope whereas Vipreet Raj Yoga is formed in unusual or somewhat negative conditions in a horoscope. The world Vipreet means opposite and hence this Yog is formed in a horoscope in opposite or opposing or unusual conditions in a horoscope. Therefore in many cases of any Harsha Yoga, the native under its impact may come across adverse or unusual type of opportunities and he may witness gains through such opportunities, if his overall horoscope is supportive.

For example, if Harsha Yog is formed in a horoscope due to the placement of the lord of sixth house in the eighth house of the same horoscope, the native may witness sudden opportunity to witness good or very good gains through the sudden death of a close relative. The father or some other close relative of such native may die in an accident or in some other sudden incident at a relatively young age as well as in an unusual way and the native may come across gains like inheriting very good amount of money, wealth or even authority through such death. It is now easy to understand that the native under the effect of Harsha Yoga in this case comes across good fortune through an unfortunate event and this is why all these three types of Yogas are called Vipreet Raj Yogas.

Continuing with the discussion, it should also be understood that unlike the usual type of Raj Yogas or Dhan Yogas, Vipreet Raj Yoga is a difficult to handle Yoga and the natives may not benefit from it in some cases, even if it is present in their horoscopes. Some natives under the impact of any type of Vipreet Raj Yoga may witness gains only in the short run and they may experience serious losses in the long run. This is one more reason for which these Yogas are called Vipreet Raj Yogas.

Looking at the explanation for this fact, the overall horoscope of a native having any type of Vipreet Raj Yoga must be positive as well as strong, and there must be at least a couple of strong and positive planets which may be capable of blessing the native with sufficient strength to benefit from such Vipreet Raj Yog. Though any type of Vipreet Raj Yoga may present the native with the opportunities to grab wealth or power through adverse looking circumstances, not all the natives may benefit through such opportunities. If the overall horoscope of one such native is strong and there are a couple of strong positive planets in his horoscope, he may have sufficient strength to make the best of such adverse looking opportunities.

On the other hand, if any type of Vipreet Raj Yog is present in a horoscope, it brings gainful opportunities through adverse circumstances and the overall horoscope of the native is weak, the native may end up in loss instead of witnessing gain. This is because the native in this case may not be able to handle such adverse opportunity and he may end up in loss in the long run, though he may witness a short term gain. Let’s now try to understand this fact with the help of a practical example.

Let’s assume that a native has a horoscope with Aries as his ascendant, Mercury being the lord of the sixth house is placed in the eighth house of this horoscope in the sign of Scorpio and it is positive as well as active. It means that Harsha Yoga is formed in the horoscope. Such Harsha Yog may bring the opportunities of gain to this native through many ways and many of these ways are likely to be unusual or even risky, depending on the rest of his horoscope. Let’s consider that benefic Mars is placed in the ninth house of this horoscope in the sign of Sagittarius, benefic Jupiter is placed in the first house of this horoscope in the sign of Aries, benefic Ketu is placed in the sixth house of this horoscope in the sign of Virgo and benefic Rahu is placed in the twelfth house of this horoscope in the sign of Pisces.

The combination of all these planets along with Harsha Yog may present this native with the opportunity to grab very good amount of wealth or authority on account of sudden death of a close relative having such wealth or authority. However, whether this native will be able achieve and sustain that wealth or authority depends on the rest of his horoscope and this is how. In the first case, let’s assume that in the same horoscope, benefic debilitated Sun is placed in the seventh house in the sign of Libra, malefic Venus is placed in the eighth house in the sign of Scorpio along with benefic Mercury; and benefic debilitated Saturn is placed in the first house in the sign of Aries along with benefic Jupiter, when all other planets are placed in the already mentioned houses.

In this case, the native under the combined effect of Harsha Yog and other benefic planets may come across a sudden opportunity to witness gains through the death of a close relative and such opportunity may present him with a chance to grab very good amount of wealth or power. If the running time is supportive, the native may avail such opportunity and he may grab such wealth or power. However, he may not be able to hold on to such wealth or power for long and he may end up in losses in the long run. This is because Sun and Saturn being two important planets in this horoscope are debilitated which means they are very weak; and there are other malefic planets in this horoscope.

As a result, a conspiracy may be plotted against the native for such wealth or authority; and he may suffer serious losses through such conspiracy. If there are more negative planets in his horoscope and the running time is also bad, the native may even get killed in one such conspiracy. Hence Harsha Yog in this case may present this native with an opportunity to grab wealth or power; he may even grab it and enjoy it for some time. However, he may have to pay a high price for such wealth or power and he may end up in great losses, due to the weakness of his overall horoscope.

Let’s now consider the same example with different combinations of planets. If benefic retrograde Mercury forms Harsha Yog by virtue of its presence in the eighth house of a horoscope in the sign of Scorpio, benefic Mars is placed in the ninth house of this horoscope in the sign of Sagittarius, benefic Sun is also placed in the ninth house of this horoscope along with benefic Mars, benefic Jupiter is placed in the first house of this horoscope in the sign of Aries, benefic Saturn is placed in the tenth house of this horoscope in the sign of Capricorn along with benefic Moon; and benefic Venus is placed in the eighth house of this horoscope in the sign of Scorpio along with benefic retrograde Mercury, the results may improve a lot.

The native under the combined effect of such Harsha Yog and other benefic planets may come across an opportunity to grab great amount of wealth and power through the sudden death of a close relative and he may succeed in grabbing it. As Mars, Sun, Jupiter and Saturn are positive and strong in this horoscope, and the overall theme of the horoscope is also positive, the native in this case may not only grab such wealth and authority, he may also be able to sustain it in the long run or so to say, forever. Though some people may try to conspire against him from time to time in order to grab such wealth and authority, the native may be strong enough to deal with such conspiracies and he may finish or damage all his enemies in a matter of few years, due to his overall strong and supportive horoscope.

It should now be easy to understand that the overall horoscope of a native should be strong and positive, in order to benefit from any type of Vipreet Raj Yog, in many cases of this Yog. Since the natives benefitting from any type of Vipreet Raj Yoga may benefit through it in adverse circumstances, the chances of facing losses are also very high, since they are not the regular favorable circumstances; and they are adverse circumstances. Hence the natives benefitting from any type of Vipreet Raj Yog should have strong and positive horoscopes so that they may not only benefit through such adverse circumstances, they may also be able to sustain such benefits in the long run.

Many other natives may benefit through Harsha Yoga in many other possible ways, depending on their overall horoscopes. For example, if benefic Mars being the lord of the sixth house forms Harsha Yog due to its presence in the twelfth house of the same horoscope in the sign of Taurus, benefic Sun is also placed in the twelfth house in the sign of Taurus, benefic Ketu also joins this combination in the twelfth house, benefic Rahu is placed in the sixth house in the sign of Scorpio and benefic Moon is placed in the eighth house of this horoscope in the sign of Capricorn, the native may become a journalist. The native under the combined effect of such Harsha Yog and other benefic planets may engage in the field of media, he may become a well established TV journalist and he may earn very good amount of money and fame.

When the running time is favorable, Harsha Yog formed in this horoscope may present this native with an opportunity to grab very good amount of wealth or power through adverse circumstances and if the overall horoscope of the native is supportive, he may succeed in achieving such power or wealth. For instance, if benefic Mercury is placed in the first house of this horoscope in the sign of Gemini, benefic Saturn is also placed in the first house of this horoscope along with benefic Mercury; and benefic Jupiter is placed in the tenth house of this horoscope in the sign of Pisces, the native may witness such benefits.

The native blessed by such Harsha Yoga and other benefic planets may get blessed with extraordinary skills as a journalist and he may make very good use of such skills. When the running time is favorable, the native benefitting from such Harsha Yog and other positive planets may come across an unusual situation where political uncertainty may prevail in the country and two or more than two big political parties may try hard to form government in the country. One of these political parties may offer the native a post of authority in the future government, in exchange for his help through his expertise in the field of journalism.

The native under the combined effect of such Harsha Yoga and other benefic planets mentioned in this example may accept such offer and he may use his journalism abilities in order to lobby for such political party and he may try his best to swing public opinion in favor of such political party. The political party supported by this native may win the elections, they may come to the power and they may reward the native with a post of authority in the government. This example once again gives you insight at the real working mechanism of any type of Vipreet Raj Yog. The native under the impact of Harsha Yoga in this case is offered a chance to witness benefits through adverse circumstances and he is able to achieve such benefits due to his overall positive and strong horoscope.

Looking at the opposite angle in the same example, if the placements and combinations of the planets in this horoscope are such that Harsha Yog is formed in the horoscope but the overall horoscope is weak or negative, here is what may happen to this native. The native under the impact of such Harsha Yoga in such case may also come across the same offer from a political party or from more than one political party. However, due to an overall weak or negative horoscope, the native may make a wrong choice and he may choose to support a political party which may lose the elections. Hence the native may not witness any gains and on the contrary, he may suffer losses through the hands of the political party which he lobbied against and which formed the government.

It is once again easy to understand that any type of Vipreet Raj Yog is a difficult to handle phenomenon and even if it is present in a horoscope, it may spell profits as well as losses for the native, depending on his overall horoscope. Hence the natives under the impact of any type of Vipreet Raj Yog must have overall strong and positive horoscopes in order to benefit from such Yog as otherwise, they may not witness gains through such adverse looking opportunities, and they may face losses on the contrary. Therefore, careful consideration should be given while predicting the results of any type of Vipreet Raj Yog in a horoscope. When supported by the overall horoscope, Vipreet Raj Yog can even bless the native with the post of a king whereas if the overall horoscope of the native is weak or negative, it can even get him killed in an attempt to become a king during adverse circumstances.
