What is Kemadruma Yoga?
Kemadruma Yoga arises when there is no planet in the second or the twelfth from the Moon. The presence of the Sun in these houses is of no consequence. It is said that one born in this yoga is bereft of health, wealth, learning, wisdom, wife, progeny and mental peace. This yoga is said to reduce to a pauper even one born in a princely ambience. Such a native suffers misery, failures, physical illness and humiliation.
The Kemadruma yoga primarily leads to financial losses and fall from status. It is yoga that subjects the native to misery and humiliation. According to the Jataka Parijata, several other planetary dispositions lead to the formation of Kemadruma yoga. These other variants of the Kemadruma, which are equally bad as potent Daridra, or poverty-producing, yogas, are as follows:
i) The Moon in the Lagna or the seventh house sans Jupiter’s aspect.
ii) A Deficient number of benefic dots (less than four) in the Ashtakavarga in the places occupied by planets when all the planets are otherwise also weak.
iii) The Moon in conjunction with the Sun, aspected by a debilitated planet, and occupying a malefic Navamsha.
iv) A waning Moon, occupying the eighth house from the Lagna, aspected by or associated with a malefic, in a case where the birth takes place during the night.
v) The Moon in the Rahu – Ketu axis, aspected by a malefic planet.
vi) The fourth house from the Lagna or the Moon occupied by a malefic planet.
vii) The Moon, aspected by a benefic which has lost in planetary warfare, is closely associated with Rahu or Ketu.
viii) The Moon in Tula, in the Varga of an inimical planet, aspected by an inimical or a debilitated planet.
ix) The Moon occupying a Kendra or a trikona, placed in an inimical sign or in debilitation in the Vargas, with Jupiter placed in either of the sixth or the eighth or the twelfth house from the Moon. This combination has been later described as Shakata yoga.
x) The Moon in a Chara Rashi and the Chara Navamsha, in a sign of a malefic in the Navamsha, aspected by an inimical planet, unaspected by Jupiter.
xi) Saturn and Venus occupying, in the Rashi and Vargas, the signs of debilitated, malefic and inimical planets, located together or in mutual aspect.
xii) A waning Moon debilitated in Navamsa, associated with a malefic and aspected by the ninth lord.
xiii) A waning Moon debilitated in Navamsa, associated with a malefic and aspected by the ninth lord.
xiv) A waning Moon in debilitation, with the native-born at night time.
Cancellation of the Kemadruma yoga:
a) Presence of planets in kendras from the Lagna. When this happens, the adverse Kemadruma yields place to a highly benefic Kalpadruma yoga which bestows all comforts on the native.
b) Presence of planets in kendras from the Moon.
c) All planets aspecting the Moon.
d) The Moon or Venus occupying a Kendra associated with or aspected by benefics (Mercury, Jupiter, Venus)
e) A strong Moon in a Kendra associated with a benefic planet or located between two benefics and aspected by Jupiter.
f) The Moon is associated with a benefic planet or located between two benefics and aspected by Jupiter.
g) The Moon, occupying in the Navamsha chart its exaltation sign or the house of a very friendly planet, aspected by Jupiter.
h) A full Moon occupying the Lagna in conjunction with a benefic planet.
i) The Moon exalted in the tenth house and aspected by a benefic.
j) If at birth, Mars and Jupiter be in Libra, the Sun in Virgo and the Moon in Aries, even if the other planets do not aspect the Moon, the Kemadruma stands cancelled.
The Moon is considered inherently weak. It proves adverse unless it is supported on one or other sides by other planets.
