Shrinath Yoga

According to prevalent definition of Shrinath Yoga in Vedic astrology; if in a horoscope, the lord of 7th house is placed in the 10th house and at the same time, the lord of 10th house is placed in conjunction with the lord of the 9th house, Srinath Yoga is formed in the horoscope. Shrinath Yoga can bless the native good results related to profession, marriage, money, wealth, prosperity, fame, authority, status, reputation and many other things.

Taking an example, suppose a combination of Jupiter and Saturn is placed in the tenth house of a horoscope in Pisces. Jupiter rules the seventh and tenth house whereas Saturn rules the ninth house. Hence Shrinath Yoga is formed in the horoscope; according to its prevalent definition. Taking another example, suppose a combination of Sun and exalted Mercury is placed in the tenth house of a horoscope in Virgo. Mercury rules the seventh and tenth house whereas Sun rules the ninth house. Hence Shrinath Yoga is formed in the horoscope.

In real practice, Shrinath Yoga may not be capable of producing such results when only the aforementioned conditions are met. Hence more conditions should be met in order for this yoga to be formed effectively in a horoscope. Looking at the first condition, the lords of the seventh, ninth and tenth house should be significantly or highly benefic in such horoscope. Apart from that, no malefic planets should be placed in the tenth house and the house of placement of lords of ninth and tenth house.

Taking an example, suppose malefic Saturn is placed in the tenth house of a horoscope in Taurus and a combination of Mars and Venus is placed in the seventh house in Aquarius. Saturn rules the seventh house and it is malefic in the horoscope. In this case, Shrinath Yoga may not be formed in the horoscope though the primary conditions are met.

Taking another example, suppose benefic Mercury is placed in the tenth house of a horoscope in Sagittarius and a benefic combination of Jupiter and Mars is placed in the ninth house in Scorpio. In this case, Shrinath Yoga may be formed in the horoscope, since Jupiter, Mars and Mercury are benefic; as long as there are no malefic planets in the ninth and tenth house.

Suppose malefic Saturn is placed in the ninth house in Scorpio and malefic Venus is placed in the tenth house in Sagittarius. In this case, Saturn afflicts Jupiter as well as Mars and it forms Pitra Dosh. Likewise, Venus afflicts Mercury. As a result, Shrinath Yoga may not provide much help to the native. Hence all the additional conditions should be met in a horoscope; for this yoga to be formed effectively.

Once the formation of Shrinath Yoga is confirmed in a horoscope, the next factor to check is its strength. The strength of Srinath yoga is calculated through the placements of lords of seventh, ninth and tenth house in various signs, nakshatras and navamshas; as well as through the influences of other benefic and malefic planets on them. The overall theme of horoscope and running times (Mahadashas) also affect the strength of Srinath Yoga.

Taking an example, suppose Jupiter is placed in the ninth house of a horoscope in Scorpio, in Cancer navamsha of Vishakha nakshatra. Mars is placed in ninth house in Scorpio, in Capricorn navamsha of Jyeshtha nakshatra and Mercury is placed in the tenth house in Sagittarius, in Virgo navamsha of Poorvashada nakshatra. Jupiter, Mercury and Mars are all exalted in navamshas. Hence strong Shrinath Yoga may be formed.

Looking at the running times; when Mahadashas (planetary periods) of malefic planets are in effect; benefic effects of Shrinath Yoga may reduce. When Mahadashas of benefic planets other than the ones involved in the formation of this yoga are in effect; benefic effects of Srinath yoga may increase. When Mahadashas of the planets involved in the formation of Shrinath Yoga are in effect; the native may witness maximum benefits through this yoga. For instance; in the recent example, the native may benefit the most during Mercury Mahadasha, Jupiter Mahadasha and Mars Mahadasha.
