Neech Bhang Raj Yoga.

Let's learn something interesting which makes a planet more powerful than exalted planet.

It is called Neech Bhang Raja Yoga. In English, it can be said Debilitation of a planet is getting extinguished and same planet is becoming Kingly.

It happens when a planet is in its debilitated sign and that sign's lord is either sitting in the same house or is exalted in another house.
For example - Let's say, Moon is in Scorpio, so Moon is debilitated. Now, Scorpio's Lord is Mars and Mars is also sitting in Scorpio with Moon or Mars is exalted in Capricorn then it creates Neech Bhang Raja Yoga.

Another example is in attached horoscope. Mercury is in 10th house of horoscope in Pisces. Hence, it is debilitated but at the same time Venus is also placed in the same house. For Venus, Pisces is the sign of exaltation. Now, it created a Neech Bhang Raja Yoga. Debilitation of Mercury is extintguished by exalted Venus in same house and Mercury has achieved Kingly status. This way a planet becomes more powerful than an exalted planet.

But as they say, in Astrology everything is in addition. So, debilitated planet will have its impact. Where it will have impact? So, this yoga only helps in professional life. In personal life, the planet which is debilitated behaves as a debilitated only. 

Other ways this yoga can manifest itself are as follows - 

  • If the lord of the house occupied by a debilitated planet is in a kendra or in a trikona from the Lagna or the Chandra-lagna.
  • If the planet that gets exalted in the sign where a planet is debilitated is in a kendra from the Lagna or the Chandra-lagna, or
  • If a planet is debilitated and is aspected by its exaltation lord.
  • If the lord of the exaltation house of the debilitated planet is in a kendra from the Lagna or the Chandra-lagna.
  • The debilitated planet is exalted in the Navamsa.
  • If a debilitated planet is aspected by another debilitated planet or by its own dispositor.
  • The lord of the navamsa occupied by the debilitated planet is in a kendra or a trikona from the Lagna which rises in a movable sign or the lord of the Lagna is in a movable sign.
  • If the lord of the sign that gets exalted in the sign occupied by the debilitated planet is in a trikona from the lord of the exaltation sign of the debilitated planet. or
  • If the lords of the debilitation and exaltation houses of the debilitated planet are in mutual kendras or in trikonas from the Lagna or the Chandra-lagna. Raja yoga occurs only if the debilitated planet owning a benefic bhava occupies a kendra in a benefic and friendly sign otherwise its debility is removed and regains its strength.

  • Hi, a quick query Navamsa (Virgo Asc.): Venus 1st house+Sun+Mars (Retro), Mercury in 6th house (Aq.), Jupiter (Retro) conjunct Moon in Cancer Is this a disaster?

  • @ RB - With 5 planets in 3rd house, you are supposed to do your own work. Thanks,

  • Sir, Today had posted 5 questions on different posts of "various Yogas". You had immediately responded to all of them. Thanks a lot. I am aware that you offer paid consultancy. Currently going through critical phase. On 1st September, have been asked to leave job. Last working day 4th December 2017. Want to know, if shall a new job by then. DOB - 19th November 1971. Time - 04:15 AM at Kolhapur Maharashtra. Will you please help me by answering this? This is an humble request. Warm regards.

  • @ RB - Yes. :))

  • Sir, Kanya Lagna, Vrischik rashi. Mars in Kumbh - does this fulfill the condition of Neech Bhang Raaj Yog for me?

  • @ vs - mercury debilitation is i m least concerned abt. in example u have given, i think it will give good results overall of mercury and jupiter, but everything is in addition and person can have issues with siblings/communication (mercury) and relationship (jupiter - husband/children). but it will make a highly learned person.

  • Dear Vishalji, I have read in various forums that if lord of 12th house sits in 12th house then it creates Vipareeta Raj Yoga and effects of Dushtana house is reduced. Suppose if Jupiter is lord of 3rd (pisces) & 12th (sagittarius) House and sits in 12th house; now if a debilitated mercury is sitting in the 3rd house - will the negative effects be less for mercury as the lord of the pisces sign (jupiter) is in mooltrikona sign although not in same house. I understand from your article that the planet lord needs to be exalted and sitting in same house as mercury for neech bhanga effect. But i have read in some forums that planet in mool trikona sign is more powerful than exalted. Hence the query. Thanks
