Vedic astrology mentions a number of good and bad yogas which can be formed in a horoscope. Shankh yog and Bheri yog are two such yogas which are formed in a horoscope under a particular set of conditions according to Vedic astrology and both these yogas are said to bless the native with good and benefic results.

Shankh Yog : According to the definition of Shankh yog prevalent in Vedic astrology, it is said that if in a horoscope the lord of 5th house and the lord of 6th house are placed in Kendra with respect to each other and the lord of Ascendant is strong at the same time, Shankh yog is formed in the horoscope which can bless the native with knowledge, long age, good health, family, land, house and some other good things.

For example, if Pisces is the Ascendant of the native and Moon being the lord of 5th house is placed in 3rd house of the horoscope whereas Sun being the lord of 6th house is placed in 9th house of the horoscope, and Jupiter being the lord of Ascendant is strong in the horoscope, then Shankh yog is formed in the horoscope as Moon and Sun are in Kendra houses in the horoscope with respect to each other. According to Vedic astrology, Kendra houses of a horoscope are the houses number 1, 4, 7 and 10 of the horoscope.

The prevalent definition of Shankh yog once again provides insufficient conditions and knowledge about the effective formation of this yog in a horoscope, like most other yogas mentioned in Vedic astrology and hence some other aspects should also be checked properly in a horoscope for the formation of an effective Shankh Yog in the horoscope. As always, the planets forming Shankh yog in a horoscope which are lord of 5th house and lord of 6th house of the horoscope, should be benefic as one of these planets being malefic can reduce the benefic effects of such Shankh yog considerably or such combination can result in malefic effects.

On the other hand, if both these planets are malefic in horoscope, such a combination can become strongly malefic as the combination of two malefic planets will not form benefic Shankh yog and on the contrary, it will form malefic yog or dosha in the horoscope. The strength of the planets forming Shankh yog in a horoscope is again of great importance as weakness to one or both the planets forming Shankh yog in a horoscope will reduce the benefic effects of Shankh yog in the horoscope.

It should also be noted that Shank yog is not formed in case of Virgo Ascendant because the lord of 5th house and the lord of 6th house is the same planet which is Saturn. In this case, the lord of 5th house and 6th house will always be in Kendra house with respect to each other as it is one planet in reality and therefore Virgo Ascendant should not be considered for the formation of Shankh yog.

The influence of other benefic as well as malefic planets on the planets forming Shankh yog in a horoscope should also be studied carefully and the formation of other good as well as bad yogas should also be given its due importance as the presence of another good yog in a horoscope can increases the benefic effects of Shankh yog whereas the presence of some bad yog in the horoscope can significantly reduce the benefic effects of Shankh Yog in the horoscope. The placement of the planets forming Shankh yog and the placement of lord of Ascendant should also be studied carefully, and the overall strength and tone of the horoscope should also be checked properly before predicting the good results of Shankh yog in a horoscope.

Bheri Yog : According to the definition of Bheri Yog prevalent in Vedic astrology, it is said that if in a horoscope, Venus is the lord of Ascendant, Venus and Jupiter are placed in Kendra houses with respect to each other and the lord of 9th house of the horoscope is strong, Bheri Yog is formed in the horoscope which can bless the native with long age, good health, good finances, good happiness from marriage and children, respect and authority and some other good things.

For example, if Libra is the Ascendant of a native, Venus being the lord of Ascendant is placed in 3rd house of the horoscope, Jupiter is placed in 12th house of the horoscope which is 10th or Kendra from Venus, and Mercury being the lord of 9th house of the horoscope is strong in the horoscope, Bheri yog is formed in the horoscope.

It is evident from the definition of Bheri yog that this yog can be formed in case of Taurus and Libra Ascendants only as the formation of this yog in a horoscope requires Venus to be the lord of Ascendant in the horoscope. The actual results given by Bheri yog will again be different for different natives primarily depending on the benefic or malefic nature of Venus and Jupiter in the horoscope.

A combination of benefic Jupiter and benefic Venus in Kendra from each other can certainly bless the native with good or very good results of Bheri Yog whereas a combination of malefic Venus and malefic Jupiter on the other hand can trouble the native with some of the most serious kinds of problems and therefore the benefic or malefic nature of Venus and Jupiter is the primary criteria for predicting the benefic or malefic results of Bheri yog in a horoscope.

Apart from this, the strength and placement of Jupiter and Venus in a horoscope, the influence and interaction of other benefic as well as malefic planets with Venus and Jupiter, the presence of other good as well as bad yogas in the horoscope and the overall strength and tone of the horoscope should also be analyzed properly before deciding the formation of Bheri yog in a horoscope and before predicting the benefic results of Bheri yog for that horoscope.
