Chandra Mangal Yoga is another good Yog which can form in a horoscope according to Vedic astrology and which can give many types of good results to the native under its influence, depending on his overall horoscope. According to its definition prevalent in Vedic astrology, if Chandra or Moon is present along with Mangal or Mars in a horoscope, Chandra Mangal Yoga is formed in the horoscope, which means that if both Moon and Mars are placed in the same house of a horoscope, Chandra Mangal Yoga is formed in the horoscope.

Some astrologers believe that the aspect relation of Moon and Mars in a horoscope can also form this Yoga in the horoscope. It means that if both Moon and Mars are casting an aspect on each other in a horoscope, Chandra Mangal Yoga is formed in the horoscope. The formation of Chandra Mangal Yog in a horoscope is said to bless the native with many types of good results like success, name, fame and authority. Looking at the positive results associated with this Yog; let’s first analyze the definition of this Yog in a scientific way.

We know that there are only twelve signs and twelve houses in a horoscope. Hence the possibility of Moon being placed with Mars in the same house as well as in the same sign in a horoscope is one out of twelve. For example, if Moon is placed in the first house of a horoscope in the sign of Aries, Mars can be placed in any one of the twelve signs and the possibility of Mars being placed in the sign of Aries or in the first house is one out of twelve. Hence Chandra Mangal Yoga forms in the horoscope of every twelfth native in this world, according to its prevalent definition.

It means that randomly, every twelfth person is having Chandra Mangal Yoga in his horoscope and accordingly every twelfth person on this earth should witness the good results indicated by this Yog.  Analyzing this definition further, we know that Moon transits a sign for two and a half days approximately and Mars stays in a sign for about a month and a half on average. Since the formation of Chandra Mangal Yoga is decided by the placement of Moon with Mars, Chandra Mangal Yoga once formed should remain active for about two and a half days as none of the two planets may change their positions during this period of time.

It means that all the people born across the world during such two and a half days will have Chandra Mangal Yoga in their horoscopes. To simplify this fact, let us assume that Mars is present in Aries at a time. As we know that Mars stays in a sign for about a month and half, so when Moon enters the sign of Aries, Chandra Mangal Yoga will be formed in the horoscope. Since Moon stays in a sign for two and a half days and Mars doesn’t change its sign this fast, it means that such Chandra Mangal Yoga will be active continuously for two and a half days.

The fact that Chandra Mangal Yoga is found in almost every twelfth horoscope and the fact that this Yoga remains active for about two and a half days are very hard to justify practically. This is because the good results associated with Chandra Mangal Yoga are rare and they are not found in case of every twelfth native. It should also be noted that any one of the good or bad Yogas in Vedic astrology doesn’t remain active continuously even for an hour, let alone a period of two and a half days.

This means that there are more conditions for the formation of Chandra Mangal Yoga in a horoscope than the one mentioned in prevalent definition of this Yoga. We shall now look into these conditions and we will find out relevant and practical facts related to the formation as well as results of Chandra Mangal Yoga.

Apart from being placed in the same house, both Mars and Moon should be working positively in a horoscope, for the formation of Chandra Mangal Yoga. The primary condition for the formation of any benefic Yog in a horoscope is that all the planets involved in the formation of such Yog should be working positively in that horoscope. Therefore, in order for Chandra Mangal Yoga to be formed in a horoscope, both Mars and Moon should be benefic in that horoscope. Mars and Moon can broadly make four combinations in a horoscope, in the cases which qualify for consideration of Chandra Mangal Yoga. Out of these four combinations, the combination of positive Mars with positive Moon may result in the formation of Chandra Mangal Yoga.

On the other hand, the remaining three combinations like the combination of benefic Mars with malefic Moon, the combination of malefic Mars with benefic Moon and the combination of malefic Mars with malefic Moon may not lead to the formation of Chandra Mangal Yoga in the horoscope. This is because in all these three combinations, either one or both the planets are malefic. Hence these combinations may not result in the formation of Chandra Mangal Yoga and instead they may form a negative Yog in which the negative planet may hit the general as well as the specific significances of the positive planet.

For example, the significances of Mars may suffer when this combination is present in a horoscope and Mars is benefic whereas Moon is malefic. As a result, the native may have to face many problems in many spheres of his life, related to the general as well as specific significances of Mars. For example, the native may face problems related to overall physical strength, health, courage and initiative; as these are the general significances of Mars. If Mars represents the first house in such horoscope, the native may face problems related to his overall lifespan, as the overall lifespan of this native becomes a specific significance of Mars in this case. It should be noted that the overall lifespan of a native is significantly dependant on the first house, though it is not entirely dependent on this house and there are other factors also.

Similarly, the general as well as specific significances of Moon may suffer when malefic Mars is present in the same house with benefic Moon. As a result, the native may face problems related to peace of mind, emotional disturbances, problems related to mother and other types of problems which relate to the general significances of Moon. Looking at specific types of problems, if Moon represents the fifth house in a horoscope, the native may face many types of problems related to child birth and the overall well being of his children as the affairs of the fifth house now become the specific significances of Moon for this native.

The worst type of combination is found in cases where both Mars and Moon are malefic in the horoscope as the significances of both Mars and Moon may suffer in this case, which can cause serious problems for the native and no Chandra Mangal Yoga may be formed in the horoscope. In this case, malefic Mars may hit the significances of malefic Moon and malefic Moon may hit the significances of malefic Mars in a negative way. Hence this combination can prove very bad for the native and he may have to suffer a lot in many spheres of his life.

It should be noted that in all these combinations, whether Mars or Moon may dominate the other depends on the strength of these planets as well as on the overall tone of the horoscopes in question. For example, if malefic Mars is placed with malefic Moon in the sign of Capricorn or Scorpio, the significances of malefic Moon may be hit much more than the significances of malefic Mars.

This is because Mars is more powerful in the signs of Capricorn and Scorpio; and hence it may dominate the results of this combination, whether such results are positive or negative. If Mars placed in Capricorn or Scorpio is positive and Moon placed along with Mars in one of these signs is negative, the resultant may not be much destructive, though it may still be negative. This is due to the reason that positive Mars is stronger than negative Moon in this case. Hence it may be able to reduce the damage caused by negative Moon.

On the other hand, if a combination of malefic Mars and malefic Moon is placed in the sign of Taurus or Cancer, the significances of Mars may be affected much more than the significances of Moon. This is because Moon is stronger in these signs, compared to Mars. Hence Moon may dominate this combination, which means it may be able to reduce the damage caused by Mars and it may also be able to cause more damage to Mars. Similarly, if malefic Mars is placed with benefic Moon in the sign of Taurus or Cancer, the resultant though negative; may not cause problems of high degree. This is due to the reason that positive Moon is stronger than malefic Mars and hence it may reduce the damage caused by Mars.

Coming back to the definition, both Mars and Moon should be positive in a horoscope, in order for Chandra Mangal Yoga to form in the horoscope. Once we are sure about the positive working of Mars and Moon in one such horoscope, the next thing to check is their strength and level of activity. If positive Mars and positive Moon are both strong in a horoscope, they may result in the formation of strong Chandra Mangal Yoga. Similarly, if they are both active in the horoscope, the results given by Chandra Mangal Yoga may be even better.

For example, the benefic results of Chandra Mangal Yoga may decrease considerably if this Yog is present in the sign of Virgo or Aquarius; as Mars and Moon are not strong in these signs. As a result, Mars and Moon may not contribute much towards Chandra Mangal Yoga; even when both these planets are benefic in the horoscope. On the other hand, if this Yoga is formed in the signs like Taurus or Capricorn; the results may be very good. Such Chandra Mangal Yoga may bless the native with many types of good results, depending on the overall tone of his horoscope.

It should be noted that the formation of Chandra Mangal Yoga in the sign of Cancer or Scorpio is a special case and it needs special attention. This is because Mars is debilitated in Cancer and Moon is strong in this sign, being the planetary lord of this sign. Similarly, Moon is debilitated in Scorpio and Mars is strong in this sign, being the planetary lord of this sign. Hence the placement of benefic Mars and benefic Moon in any one of these signs is a special case and it needs special attention.

This is because, with one of these planets being debilitated in each one of these signs and the other planet being the lord of that sign; Neechbhang RajYoga may form in the horoscope as the planet ruling the sign of placement of this combination may cancel the debilitation status of the other planet. For example, if this combination is placed in the sign of Cancer, Moon being the planetary lord of Cancer may cancel the debilitation status of Mars and hence Neechbhang RajYoga may be formed in the horoscope. Similarly, if this combination is placed in the sign of Scorpio, Mars being the planetary lord of Scorpio may cancel the debilitation status of Moon and Neechbhang RajYoga may be formed in the horoscope.

As a result, the formation of Chandra Mangal Yoga in any one of these signs may produce extraordinary results related to some spheres of native’s life; when supported by his overall horoscope. This is due to the reason that the native is now under the impact of Chandra Mangal Yoga as well as Neechbhang RajYoga and hence he may benefit from both of them. Therefore, the formation of Chandra Mangal Yoga in Cancer or Scorpio should be analyzed as a special case.

Moving on to the next factor, the influence of other positive or negative planets on Mars or Moon should also be checked properly, as this factor alone can change the results altogether, in some cases. For example, if malefic exalted Mercury is placed in the sign of Virgo along with benefic Mars and benefic Moon; the results may be disastrous. Though in theory, Chandra Mangal Yoga may form in this case; the practical results of this combination may be very bad for the native.

As we can see, Mars and Moon are not strong in this sign; hence weak Chandra Mangal Yoga may be formed. Moving on, malefic Mercury is very strong due to being exalted in Virgo. As a result, it may seriously afflict both Mars and Moon. Hence a defect may form in the horoscope which may trouble the native with many types of problems related to many spheres of his life, depending on the overall tone of this horoscope. Since the strength of such defect may be much higher than the strength of Chandra Mangal Yoga, the native may only witness the impact of such defect and he may not come across any visible impact of Chandra Mangal Yoga.

Considering this equation from the opposite angel; if exalted Mercury placed in the sign of Virgo along with Mars and Moon is positive; the results may be wonderful. Such positive exalted Mercury may provide additional strength to Chandra Mangal Yoga and the results may become even better. Therefore, the native may achieve many types of good results, including a post of high authority in the government or a position of great fame, if his overall horoscope is supportive.

You see, how much can change by merely adding a planet to this combination or even when the nature of such planet changes. Hence all these factors should be checked carefully and only then the formation as well as the results indicated by Chandra Mangal Yoga should be concluded. Even a seemingly small factor like the house of placement of this Yoga may change everything. For example, the formation of Chandra Mangal Yoga in the first house of a horoscope in the sign of Cancer can bless the native with very good success as a creative artist, the placement of this Yog in the first house in the sign of Scorpio can bless the native with a post of authority in the government, the placement of this Yog in the first house of a horoscope in the sign of Virgo can bless the native with very good results through a sport; and the placement of this Yog in the first house in the sign of Sagittarius may bless the native with very good success as a spiritual guru or astrologer.

I know it looks like many factors to check already, but it is not the end; and the most important factor still remains. The overall tone of a horoscope having Chandra Mangal Yoga in it should be checked thoroughly before reaching any conclusions, as this is the factor which can change each and everything. For example, the presence of Chandra Mangal Yoga in the tenth house of a horoscope can bless the native with top class authority in government, if the overall theme of his horoscope is authoritative. On the other hand, the placement of Chandra Mangal Yoga in the tenth house of a horoscope can bless the native with success as a sportsman; if the overall theme of the horoscope is sportive.

Similarly, Chandra Mangal Yoga placed in the tenth house of a horoscope can bless the native with good results through business, practice, spiritualism, astrology, inheritance and many other spheres; depending on the overall theme of his horoscope. Therefore, if you want to calculate the exact type of benefits that Chandra Mangal Yoga may pass on to a native, when formed in his horoscope, all these factors should be checked properly. Avoiding some of these factors may result in partly correct calculations or predictions. This is because you know Chandra Mangal Yoga is present in the horoscope but you don’t know what is it going to do to the native?

Generally speaking, you can simply tell that something good is going to happen to the native having strong Chandra Mangal Yoga in his horoscope. Specifically speaking, you can’t tell what type of good, how much good and when can such good happen to this native, without looking into these details? Therefore, the overall tone of the horoscope becomes very important if you’re interested in the detailed applications of Chandra Mangal Yoga or any other good or bad Yog present in a horoscope.

Coming to the last but not the least, the impact of running times should also be checked in order to further fine tune the effects given by Chandra Mangal Yoga in a horoscope. It should be noted that any type of good or bad Yog becomes duly effective, if one of the planets involved in its formation is leading the running times. As a result, the native may witness the strongest benefits of Chandra Mangal Yoga if he is hit by the planetary periods of Mars or Moon during relevant years of his age. This very simple looking fact may not change the type of success you may achieve due to the influence of Chandra Mangal Yoga in many cases; however it may change the quantum of such success to a great extent.

For example, if Chandra Mangal Yoga is formed in the tenth house of a horoscope and the overall theme of the horoscope is creative, the native may become an actor. Though the native may achieve success if his overall horoscope is strong and positive, such success may reach high levels; as and when the planetary periods of Mars or Moon hit this native. This is because during these periods, Chandra Mangal Yoga may gain additional strength and hence it may bless the native with even better results.

Let’s assume a native becomes an actor under the impact of Chandra Mangal Yoga and let’s suppose his overall horoscope is strong. If the planetary periods of Moon or Mars don’t hit this native at relevant times during his acting career, he may still achieve good amount of success. For the sake of understanding, let’s assume this success to be of level 3, where 2 is better and 1 is the best level. Hence this native may still achieve level 3 success, even if the running times are not ruled by Moon or Mars.

However, if the planetary periods of Mars or Moon hit this native at relevant times, the native benefitting from the same Chandra Mangal Yoga may achieve level 2 or even level 1 success, depending on the strength of such running times. Hence he may become one of the most successful actors of his time or he may even become the most successful actor of his time. It should be noted that the term ‘relevant times’ in this context means when an opportunity has appeared.

Making it easy to understand, let’s assume a native benefitting from Chandra Mangal Yoga has a creative horoscope and he tries to achieve success through the field of acting. Now the prime time of his acting career is the relevant time in this case. It means if this native is under the effect of the planetary period of Mars or Moon during this time, he may come across very good movies, he may deliver very good performances and he may become a very successful movie star of level 1 or 2.

However, if the running time is not led by Mars or Moon; he may miss such higher levels of success due to many reasons, and he may get something less in value. For instance, he may not get offers for very good movies or he may choose to work in some not very good movies by making impulsive decisions. As a result, his movies may not perform so well and the level of success achieved by him may be reduced. Similarly, he may not be able to give his best performances during such periods, though he may have the potential to deliver high class performances.

It can be seen that even when the native is not supported by the planetary periods of Mars or Moon at relevant times, he may still achieve good results. However, such good results may not be of the highest order and they may be less in value or quantum. This is the time to understand that any type of good or bad Yog formed in a horoscope tends to give its best results when the planetary periods are ruled by a planet involved in the formation of that Yog.

It means Kaal Sarp Yog may prove very destructive when the planetary periods are ruled by Rahu or Ketu; since this Yog is formed by Rahu and Ketu. Similarly, Manglik Dosh may prove very bad when the planetary periods are ruled by Mars; as this defect is formed by Mars. Looking at the positive Yogas, Malavya Yoga may produce its best results when planetary periods are ruled by Venus. On the same lines, Chandra Mangal Yoga may produce its best results when the planetary periods are ruled by Mars or Moon.

Going even deeper, if a good or bad Yog is formed by more than one planet in a horoscope, the good or bad results of highest order are likely to be given during the running period of the planet which is stronger among the planets involved in the formation of such Yog. It means if Chandra Mangal Yoga is formed in the sign of Taurus, Moon is stronger than Mars and hence it dominates the results. Based on these facts, the native may come across good results; broadly divided among three levels.

For instance, if the overall theme of a horoscope having such Chandra Mangal Yoga is indicating success through acting, this is what may happen. If none of the planetary periods of Mars or Moon hits this native at relevant times, he may become an actor with success of level 3. If the planetary period of Mars hits this native at a relevant time, he may achieve success of level 2, as an actor. If the planetary period of Moon hits this native at a relevant time, he may achieve success of level 1 as an actor. This is the time when this native may achieve the peak of his acting career and he may deliver some unforgettable performances.

It means that the true potential of any good or bad Yoga is unleashed; only when the running time of the strongest planet involved in the formation of such Yoga hits the native at a relevant time. For example, if in the same case, the main planetary period of Moon hits this native during his age of 2 years and 12 years, his best chance may be wasted. It means that though this native may have the potential of becoming a level 1 actor, the period supporting that potential has hit him at an irrelevant time. Since the native may not become a level 1 actor during his childhood; and the main planetary period of Moon may not come again during his lifetime, he may miss the best possible gift of Chandra Mangal Yoga.

Hence this native may work in some movies as a child and he may achieve very good amount of success and recognition as a child artist. Logically, a child can’t become a superstar in most cases as his range of acting is limited to certain genres only. Hence he may be able to achieve level 3 of success during his childhood, or level 2 at the most for some time. Once he grows old, he may still reach level 3 or level 2 of success, depending on the other important factors, though he may not achieve the best possible result. You see, how each and every single factor can make significant changes to the net results witnessed by a native.

It should be noted that in all these examples, running times of the strongest benefic planets may only bring out the optimum potential lying in the horoscope and they may not increase that optimum potential. It means that the planetary period of Moon at a relevant time may only bless the native with level 1 success as an actor, if the overall horoscope shows this potential. However, if the overall horoscope shows an optimum potential of level 2 success as an actor, even when everything works at its best, the results may change.

The native in this case may become a level 2 actor when all the factors are working in his favor, he may become a level 3 actor when one of the factors like running time is not favorable; and he may not even become a level 3 actor, when most factors are not favorable for him at a given point in time. Similarly, if the optimum potential of a horoscope having Chandra Mangal Yoga indicates success of level 3 as an actor, the native may be able to reach this level only, even when everything is in order. He may not achieve level 1 or level 2 of success, even when everything is working in his favor.

Therefore, running times can only bring the best out of you; they can’t increase that best. The overall potential of every native is decided by the entire horoscope including the nature, strength, placement and combinations of various planets in various houses, signs and nakshatras. Hence this overall potential of a horoscope should be found first and then the percentage of such potential which may be available at a given point in time should be calculated, in order to check whether a particular result wanted by a native may or may not be achieved by him.

It means if a native having Chandra Mangal Yoga wants to achieve level 1 success as an actor, it should be first checked if his horoscope is capable of blessing him with this result, even when working at its best. If this calculation comes in his favor, then it should be checked whether the running time supports this result. If the running time is also supportive, he may achieve level 1 success as an actor. However, if the running time is not supportive for this result for the next 5 years, he may become a level 1 actor; only after a period of 5 years. On the other hand, if his overall horoscope is not capable of blessing him with level 1 success as an actor; he may not achieve this post even when the best type of running time is in effect.

You see, how simple is the definition of Chandra Mangal Yoga in Vedic astrology, and how complex is the actual calculation of formation as well as results of this Yog? As there are billions of different people in this world, Vedic astrology should also have billions of possible combinations in a horoscope. This is because, if the science of astrology is absolutely true which it is; then each horoscope should be different from the other; just like the people having those horoscopes are different from each other.

Therefore, each and every aspect in a horoscope should be checked properly; before concluding the formation of Chandra Mangal Yoga in a horoscope or before predicting the type and quantum of results indicated by it.
