Sakata Yoga

An inauspicious planetary combination described variously in classical texts. It is formed by all the planets in the 1st and 7th houses which make the individual accept low professions. It also occurs when Jupiter occupies the 6th or 8th position from Moon posited in a house other than the cardinal houses in relation with the Ascendant. It brings poverty even to those born in a royal family. Such a person is troubled throughout his life and is disliked by the head of the state. Moon in the 12th, 8th or 6th house from Jupiter causes Sakata Yoga unless Moon is situated in a cardinal house. A person with this combination loses his wealth or position in life, but regains them. Sakata Yoga produces cyclic fluctuation in fortune, just like the wheel of a chariot, rotating on its axis.
