Kemdrum Yog

Kemdrum Yog or Kemdrum Dosh is considered as one of the worst yogas in Vedic astrology. According to its prevalent definition, if there is no planet on either side of Moon in a horoscope, Kemdrum Yoga is formed in the horoscope. This yoga can make the native suffer from problems like poverty, diseases, all-around troubles, enemies, disgrace, failed marriages and other problems.

It is believed that natives under strong influence of Kemdrum Yog lead miserable lives and they are always troubled on account of one problem or the other. It is believed that at least one sphere of one such native’s life is permanently damaged. It means that some natives under the strong influence of Kemdrum Yog may suffer from very serious problems in marriage or they may not get married at all. Some natives may not be able to produce children throughout their lives whereas some may not be able to settle in professions; almost for their entire lives due to malefic influence of Kemdrum Yog.  Some other natives may have to live in poverty and disgrace due to malefic influence of Kemdrum Dosh.

In practice, such results are not seen in majority of horoscopes having Kemdrum Yoga. Hence there must be more conditions for the formation of Kemdrum Yog. Let’s look into these conditions.

For Kemdrum Yoga to be formed in a horoscope, no planet should be placed in houses which are second and twelfth from Moon; and no planet should be placed in the house occupied by Moon. Apart from that; no functional benefic planet should be placed in the house which is seventh from Moon. No functional benefic planet should be placed in the ninth house of horoscope and no planet should be placed in the first, fourth, seventh and tenth house of one such horoscope. If all these conditions are met, Kemdrum Yoga may be formed in the horoscope.

Malefic Rahu and Ketu are exception to this rule. It means if malefic Rahu or Ketu is placed in any one of the aforementioned houses; Kemdrum Yoga may still be formed in the horoscope. On the other hand, if benefic Rahu or Ketu is placed in any one of the aforementioned houses; Kemdrum Yog may not be formed in the horoscope.

In cases where only the primary condition is met; Kemdrum Yoga may not be formed. Even if it is considered to be formed; it may not create problems associated with it. On the other hand, as more and more conditions meet along with the primary condition for the formation of Kemdrum Yog; the number of problems witnessed by one such native may increase. When all the aforementioned conditions are met in a horoscope; the native may witness proper effects of Kemdrum Yoga.

Once the formation of Kemdrum Yog is confirmed in a horoscope, the next step is to check its strength. The strength of Kemdrum Yoga is checked through the placements of Moon in various houses, signs, nakshatras and navamshas; as well as from the overall theme of horoscope.

Starting with houses, placements of Moon in certain houses may increase the effects of Kemdrum Yoga whereas its placements in some other houses may not aggravate Kemdrum Yog. Taking an example, suppose Moon is placed in the fifth house of a horoscope in Taurus and Kemdrum Yoga is formed in such horoscope. Capricorn rises in the ascendant, Moon is exalted, benefic and placed in a comfortable house. Hence this placement may not aggravate Kemdrum Yog. On the contrary, it may help in reducing the malefic impact of this defect, since Moon is benefic, strong and placed in a comfortable house.

Taking another example, suppose Moon is placed in the eighth house of a horoscope in Scorpio and Kemdrum Yog is formed in the horoscope. Moon is debilitated and it is placed in a difficult house. Strong Moon may handle the energy of the eighth house but debilitated Moon may not be able to do so. Hence Kemdrum Yoga may gain more strength in this case and the native may suffer more.

Moving on to signs, placements of Moon in some specific signs may increase the malefic influence of Kemdrum Yog whereas its placements in some specific signs may reduce the strength of this yoga. For example; placement of Moon in Taurus or Cancer may reduce the strength of Kemdrum Yoga whereas its placement in Scorpio or Aquarius may aggravate the problems caused by this yoga. Likewise, placements of Moon in various nakshatras and navamshas may also affect net outcomes of Kemdrum Yog; positively or negatively.

In case of Kemdrum Yoga, the overall theme of horoscope is the most important factor which may influence its outcomes. If the overall horoscope having Kemdrum Yog is strong and benefic; malefic influence of this yoga may reduce. On the other hand, if the overall horoscope having Kemdrum Yoga is weak and/or malefic; problems created by this yoga may increase.

Taking an example; suppose Moon is placed in the eleventh house of a horoscope in Taurus, a benefic combination of Sun, Venus and Mars is placed in the ninth house in Pisces, Mercury is placed in the eighth house in Aquarius, Rahu is placed in the sixth house in Sagittarius, malefic Ketu is placed in the twelfth house in Gemini, Saturn is placed in the third house in Virgo and Jupiter is placed in the second house in Leo. Kemdrum Yoga seems to be formed in the horoscope.

However, Moon being the lord of ascendant is empowered in the eleventh house and a strong benefic combination of Sun, Mars and exalted Venus is placed in the ninth house. These planets may turn the overall theme of horoscope positive as well as strong. Saturn, Mercury and Jupiter are well placed as well as strong. Rahu and Ketu are not strong in their respective signs. As the combined result of these factors; the overall horoscope may become strong and benefic. Hence Kemdrum Yoga may not create serious or even significant problems in this case. It means Kemdrum Yoga may not be effectively formed in this case. On the contrary, the native may witness good results related to many spheres of his life.

Taking another example; suppose Moon is placed in the eighth house of a horoscope in Scorpio, a malefic combination of Sun, Venus, Rahu and Mercury is placed in the sixth house in Virgo, a malefic combination of Mars and Ketu is placed in twelfth house in Pisces; Saturn is placed in the fifth house in Leo and Jupiter is placed in the third house in Gemini. Kemdrum Yog is formed in the horoscope.

Moon is debilitated and it is placed in a troublesome house. The combination in the sixth house is highly malefic where malefic exalted Mercury and exalted Rahu afflict Sun and debilitated Venus. Malefic exalted Ketu may cause serious damage to Mars (lord of ascendant) in the twelfth house which is a difficult to handle house. Saturn is not strong in Leo and Jupiter is not strong in Gemini. Hence the overall horoscope turns malefic and weak. Kemdrum Yoga may cause serious damage in this case. As a result, the native may suffer from serious problems related to health, lifespan, marriage, mother, father, children, profession, reputation, finances, spiritual growth and a number of other problems.

Malefic influence of Kemdrum Yog may be reduced with the help of astrological remedies. Application of appropriate gemstones, yantras, donations and poojas may provide relief from Kemdrum Yoga.
