Sunfa yog, Anfa Yog and Durdhara Yog are considered as three auspicious yogas in Vedic astrology. Each one of these yogas is related to and formed by virtue of placement of Moon in the horoscope.

Sunfa Yog : According to its definition prevalent in Vedic astrology, if there are one or more than one planets present in the house which is 2nd from the house of placement of Moon, Sunfa Yog is formed in the horoscope which is said to bless the native with wealth and fame. Some astrologers believe that the presence of Sun in the house 2nd to the house of Moon is taken as exception to the formation of Sunfa Yog which means that if Sun alone is present in 2nd house from Moon, Sunfa Yog is not formed in the horoscope.

Considering the formation of Sunfa yog with the help of an example, if Moon is placed in 4th house of a horoscope and one or more than one planets other than Sun are present in 5th house of horoscope, Sunfa Yog is said to be formed in such a horoscope. The results associated with Sunfa Yog are not experienced in reality, by many natives having this yog in their horoscope according to the prevalent definition of Sunfa yog. This indicates that there are some other conditions which should be met in a horoscope in order for the formation of Sunfa yog in the horoscope.

The first one of these conditions is that Moon should be working as a benefic planet in the horoscope and at the same time, the planet or planets placed in the house next to the Moon should also be benefic planets in that horoscope, in order for Sunfa Yog to form in the horoscope. The presence of a malefic Moon does not lead to the formation of Sunfa Yog and the presence of malefic planets in the house next to Moon can dilute the results of Sunfa yog to great extent and hence this house should not be occupied by malefic planets.

It should also be noted that for Sunfa yog to form in a horoscope and to give good results, Moon should not be placed with malefic planets in the horoscope and it should also not receive a strong aspect from a malefic planet in the horoscope as such a malefic placement or aspect can significantly reduce the good effects associated with Sunfa Yog. The strength and placement of Moon in a horoscope is also an important factor in deciding the benefic results of Sunfa yog. For example, Sunfa yog formed with the presence of Moon in Cancer and in 4th house of horoscope is much stronger than the Sunfa yog formed with placement of Moon in Scorpio sign and in 12th house of horoscope.

Anfa Yog : According to its definition prevalent in Vedic astrology, if there is one or more than one planet present in 12th house from the house of Moon in a horoscope, Anfa yog is said to be formed in the horoscope which can bless the native with good health, fame and spiritual progress. Some astrologers believe that the presence of Sun alone in 12th house from Moon is an exception to the formation of Anfa Yog which means that if Sun alone is present in 12th house from Moon in a horoscope, Anfa yog is not formed in such a horoscope and Sun must be present along with one or more than one planets in a horoscope in order to form Anfa yog in the horoscope.

The results indicated by Anfa yog are again not experienced by many people having this yog in their horoscope according to the prevalent definition of this yog just like in case of Sunfa yog. Here again it should be noted that the results associated with Anfa yog are likely to be seen only when Moon involved in the formation of Anfa yog in a horoscope is working as a benefic planet in that horoscope as a malefic Moon is not likely to form Anfa yog in the horoscope.

The presence of malefic planets in 12th house from Moon in a horoscope can also dilute good results related with Anfa yog. Hence, for Anfa yog to produce best results in a horoscope, Moon as well as the planets present in 12th house from Moon should be benefic planets for that horoscope. The placement of Moon with one or more than one malefic planets in a horoscope or the aspect of one or more than one malefic planets on Moon in a horoscope can also reduce the benefic results of Anfa yog.

The best results of Anfa yog are experienced when Moon is placed alone or it is placed with benefic planets in a horoscope and the planets placed in 12th house from Moon are also benefic. It should also be noted that the strength and placement of Moon in a horoscope is also an important factor while predicting the benefic results of Anfa yog in a horoscope as the presence of a benefic Moon in Taurus sign makes a much stronger Anfa yog than the one formed due to presence of Moon in the sign of Scorpio which is the sign of debilitation for Moon and as Moon becomes weak in the horoscope, Anfa yog also becomes weak in the horoscope.

Durdhara Yog : According to its definition prevalent in Vedic astrology, when there are planets present on both sides of the Moon in a horoscope, which means that when planets are present in 2nd and 12th house from the house of Moon in a horoscope, Durdhara yog is said to be formed in the horoscope, which can bless the native with physical beauty, wealth and prosperity. Here again like Sunfa Yog and Anfa Yog, the benefic results associated with Durdhara yog are not seen by many natives having Durdhara yog in their horoscopes according to this definition of Durdhara yog, which indicates that some other conditions should also be met in a horoscope in order for Durdhara yog to form in that horoscope.

First of all, like Sunfa Yog and Anfa Yog, Moon should be a benefic planet in the horoscope in order to participate in the formation of Durdhara yog because a malefic or negative Moon does not form Durdhara yog in the horoscope. The planets present on both sides of the Moon should also be benefic planets for the horoscope as the presence of malefic planets in one or both the houses on both sides of the Moon can reduce the effects of Durdhara yog significantly or it can even cancel the formation of Durdhara yog altogether in the horoscope.

The horoscopes in which Moon is benefic and the planets placed in one of the two houses on both sides of the Moon are benefic, a weak Durdhara yog is formed which can give benefic results like Durdhara yog but with less strength. The presence of one or more than one malefic planets in 2nd house from Moon in a horoscope is likely to give more weakness to Durdhara yog than the presence of one or more than one malefic planets in 12th house from Moon which is likely to form a comparatively stronger Durdhara yog.

The presence of Moon with any malefic planet or the aspect of one or more than one malefic planets on Moon can dilute the benefic results of Durdhara yog in a horoscope whereas the formation of a beneficial yog like Gaj Kesari yog in a horoscope can increase the strength of Durdhara Yog in a horoscope. The strength and placement of Moon in the horoscope should also be taken into consideration while deciding the benefic results of Durdhara yog as weakness to Moon by virtue of its placement in a sign or house of horoscope will form Durdhara Yog with low strength in the horoscope.
