Malavya Yog is formed by Venus in a horoscope, it is considered as one of the most auspicious yogas in Vedic astrology and it is also considered as one of the five most auspicious yogas in Vedic astrology called Panch MahaPurusha Yogas where the other 4 yogas in this class are Hamsa Yog, Ruchaka Yog, Bhadra Yog and Shasha Yog. According to the prevalent definition of Malavya Yog, when Venus is present in Kendra from Ascendant or Moon in a horoscope, which means that when Venus is present in 1st, 4th, 7th or 10th house from Ascendant or Moon in a horoscope in any one of the three signs namely Taurus, Libra and Pisces, Malavya Yog is formed in the horoscope.
Malavya Yog can bless the native with many good things depending on the strength of this yog in the horoscope as well as the overall tone of the horoscope of the native. Venus is considered as the planet associated with women, beauty, diplomacy, trade, luxuries, love life, comforts, creativity and many other good things according to Vedic astrology. Accordingly, the formation of Malavya Yog in a horoscope can bless the native with a beautiful and loving wife, good success in business, a life full of luxuries and comforts, and fame on national or international level.
The natives under the strong influence of Malavya Yog are usually very beautiful and they possess a charming and magnetic personality which attracts other people very easily and especially the people from the opposite sex. Some natives under the strong influence of Malavya Yog can become successful or very successful in the professional fields like modeling, cinema, movies and other such fields which require beauty and charm in order to be successful. Malavya Yog present in the horoscope of women can make them very beautiful and desirable, and some women under the strong influence of this yog can win national or international beauty pageants.
Looking into the formation of Malavya Yog according to its prevalent definition, it can be seen that Venus can be present in every house of a horoscope in 12 different signs which means that 12 combinations of Venus are possible for placement of Venus in each of the 12 houses of a horoscope which makes the total number of these occurrences to be 144. Moving ahead, the presence of Venus in 1st house of a horoscope in any of the three signs namely Taurus, Libra and Pisces leads to the formation of Malavya Yog in the horoscope and similarly the presence of Venus in 4th, 7th or 10th house of a horoscope in any one of the signs Taurus, Libra and Pisces also leads to the formation of Malavya Yog in the horoscope which makes total number of occurrences for Malavya Yog to be 12 out of the total combinations of 144.
Hence this Yog can be found in every 12th horoscope on average and accordingly every 12th person should be blessed with good and very good effects of Malavya Yog which is obviously not the case in actual practice which leads to the conclusion that this Yog is not formed in every 12th horoscope. It means that the conditions for the formation of Malavya Yog according to its prevalent definition are not sufficient and some other conditions should also be met for this yog to be formed in a horoscope. Let’s now look at a few important aspects which should be analyzed properly in a horoscope before predicting the formation of Malavya Yog in the horoscope.
First of all, Venus should work as a benefic planet in the horoscope in order for Venus to form a Malavya Yog in the horoscope as the good and great results indicated by Malavya Yog will only be experienced if Venus is working benefic in the horoscope and these results will not be seen in cases where Venus is working malefic in the horoscope. For example, a malefic Venus present in 1st house of a horoscope in Taurus, Libra or Pisces can cause serious problems with the personality, profession and married life of the native instead of giving benefits mentioned under Malavya Yog and some natives under the strong influence of this Malefic placement of Venus can get addicted to a life of extreme luxuries, consuming too much liquor, over indulging in sexual activities and running after other materialistic pleasures. These natives can choose an immoral or illegal profession to fulfill these extreme materialistic desires which can put them in serious troubles, many times in their lives.
Hence Venus should work as a benefic planet in order to form Malavya Yog in the horoscope. The influence of other benefic and malefic planets on Venus should also be analyzed carefully as the influence of one or more than one benefic planet on Venus can increase the benefic effects of Malavya Yog significantly whereas the influence of one or more malefic planets on Venus can reduce the benefic effects of Malavya Yog considerably. In some extreme cases, the influence of two or more than two malefic planets on Venus can completely nullify the benefic effects of Malavya Yog in the horoscope. Hence it becomes important to study the influence of other benefic as well as malefic planets on Venus.
In the next step, the presence of other benefic or malefic yogas in the horoscope should also be checked as the presence of benefic yogas can increase the good effects of Malavya yog whereas the presence of a serious defect like Kuja Dosha or Sarpa Dosha can reduce the good effects of Malavya Yog. The overall tone of the horoscope should also be analyzed properly before predicting the final resultant of this yog in a horoscope.
When actually formed, Malavya Yog in 1st house of a horoscope can bless the native with charming personality, professional success, name and fame among other things. Malavya Yoga in 4th house of a horoscope can bless the native with great wealth, luxuries, vehicle, houses and foreign travels among other things. Malavaya Yoga in 7th house of a horoscope can bless the native with a very beautiful and loving wife, fame on national or international level through movies, modeling or beauty pageants among other things. Malavya Yoga in 10th house of a horoscope can bless the native with great success in business, trade or some other profession like hotel business, movie production etc. and this placement can also bless the native with fame on national or international level.
