Viparita Raja Yoga = fast and forceful.
Like Cinderella's magic pumpkin carriage and unlike normal Raja Yoga, VRY = situational and not constitutional.
VRY benefits do not sustain past the immediate occasion of the occurrence.
Other, deeper personality strengths must arise to sustain the moment of opportunity.
|L-6 in 12 produces a peculiar but favorable Viparita Raja Yoga||
Broken trust, illicit activities, debts, etc are not exposed to
the public (12, dissolution of identity)
Clandestine activities (12) with persons of marginalized status (6) are often degrading but these same socially disproportionate (6) relationships can surprisingly aid the meditation skills by showing a path to ego-dissolution via imagination and fantasies
|Rules for Viparita Raja Yoga||
lord of 6, lord of 8 or lord of 12 must occupy bhava-6, bhava-8 or bhava-12
in the dushthamsha wherein the Viparita Raja Yoga occurs (it can occur in 6, 8, or 12) no temporal benefic can be present in the dushthamsha (no L-1+L-5+L-9+L-10)
Parivartamsha = No VRY
VRY does not work properly when there is a parivartamsha
The parivartamsha reinforces the L-6+L-8+L-12 so that the dushthamsha lord gets its negative powers restored.

Prevents undue harm from those agents and environments which produce sickness, enemies, debt, war, enslavement, or pollution.
Harsha Yoga creates unique protection for those engaged in service, by preventing the harshest consequences of those highly unbalanced environments wherein the native has dedicated a ministry of service.
Found often in the nativities of medical professionals, those who handle implements of war or drugs, those who assist criminals, who help slaves or who engage in adversarial activities such as litigation which are intended to help.
One is largely protected from the usually dire consequences of involvement with exploitation, prostitution, pollution, criminals, drugs, disease, war, or poverty. Harmful events first negatively affect others, then a special door may open for the native.
One blessed by this yoga can profit from the sudden occurrence of a power vacuum.
When misfortune (6) befalls others and the native is well-prepared, a sudden vacancy may occur in a desirable position.
one may be able and indeed welcomed to step across the threshold, into a surprisingly (8) available opportunity.
Another and highly significant benefit of Harsha Yoga = almost guaranteed to escape legal conviction for crimes.
The L-6 (crimes) is plunged into the mysterious 8th bhava. Even when detailed accusations have been levied against the native, Prosecutors are generally unable to discover (8) adequate evidence to seal a conviction.
Avoiding the most harmful effects of Divorce
"Play to Win" real-estate financier, televisadero Donald Trump L-6 Shani in 12 yuti Shukra.
Most of the negative implications of Ripu bhava are associated with mental disturbance from animosity, accusation, poverty, conflict, debt, or disease.
The beauty of Harsha Yoga = the bitterness of disagreement (6) is weakened when the L-6 enters bhava-8 of sudden shocks (8) or bhava-12 of retreat into the imagination. L-6 in 8 or L-6 in 12 will either force (8) or guide (12) most conflicts into a neutral, non-harmful outcome.
L-6 in bhava-8
L-6 in 3rd-from-swakshetra = commercial success via illicit but tax-camouflaged hidden monies
A super-malefic combination which can produce financially successful results via communications media + handcraft such as writing and painting.
Surprising self-made financial wealth (3)
one is able to craft a message (3) which explains:
On a high spiritual level, one may be empowered to use the occasion of physical disease for the purpose of explaining the reality of etenal life.
L-6 in bhava-12 = "sleeping with the enemy"
L-6 resides in 7th-from-swakshetra =
Surprising equity (7)
one is able to form alliances (7) which bridge adversarial interests in:
private bedroom life, meditation and prayer, dissolution of flesh-body identity, imprisonment, hospitalization, or long sojourn in distant lands (12)
L-6-in-12 = reduces loss from enemies or broken contracts via the establishment of equitable private contractual agreements (often marriages) with persons who would normally be classified as an enemy.
L-6 in 12 brings the narrative of social conflict (6) into the realm of imagination, spiritual guidance and private prayer (12). The native may experience criticism and exploitation, toxic relationships and bullying. However one will generally emerge unscathed from the battle due to the power of bhava-12 to dematerialize its contents into the astral and etheric realms.
L-6 carries a script of accusation and disagreement wherever the L-6 goes.
However, matters of randhra bhava = rather quickly destroyed and reborn.
If what is in randhra bhava happens to be the L-6, then disagreement will be quickly transformed into some new form which preserves the essence but changes the container. " Therefore this native is often a skilled and speedy re-crafter of relationships which have become inimical L-6 in 8 is able to quick-change (8) the social identity and appearance of the disagreement, transforming it into something of continuing vitality .
the native may be able to transform the worst experiences of 6 = jealousy, divorce, drug addiction, crime, war, environmental and social toxicity and pollution, social conflict of every variety
After transformation, the conflict of 6 turns into fuel for the engines of transformation, re-invention, and rebirth.
The agents of imbalance, including one's accusers, enemies and their arguments = temporarily destroyed (8) or dissipated and dissolved (12, drains the life force).
L-6 in 12 is less extreme and less immediately effective, although ultimately its benefits produce a loss of imbalance and eradication of animosity.
12 is dissolving; 8 is explosively and often catastrophically destructive.
12th = 7th-from-6th, it is a private world, where the agreements of one's enemies are crafted. If L-6 resides in 12, the agency of the enemies is somewhat dissolved into one's imagination.
The power of disease, which is at root the power of one's own mind to argue oneself into a state of molecular disorder, is dissolved into the astral world.
L-6 in 12 disturbs the dreams and upsets the meditation but it also eats away at the materialization potential of the enemies.
Animosity, debt, and disease exist but these evils remain imprisoned in the imagination. there can be mental health issues but the material debt is largely gone and one's enemies are only in the head.
During periods of L-6, enemies, debts, slavery, medicines, disease, and arguments do arise from their subconsciously managed script; however, these phantoms manifest only in the private and off-shore realms: in the bedroom, in the imagination, in the meditation center, in foreign lands.
The day-to-day, public life is not harmed and is indeed helped through remarkable events.
Enemies are suddenly re-assigned to a foreign post (12).
Enemies in the workplace (6) such as the manager who was blocking one's promotion (6) suddenly retires (12).
Debts are suddenly re-negotiated (7th-from-6th) or the loan is acquired by an agency which is forced to give the debtor more favorable repayment terms and the agent takes a loss. Perhaps there is a new law, or simply a bank manager's oversight - but the end result is that the contract (7th-from) effectively dissolves the debt.
Disease which originates in the thoughts, but which had by the time of the period of the L-6 percolated down through the astral-emotional plane and successfully manifested in the physical body, rather suddenly retreats back into the astral plane.
Recovery from disease under circumstances of Harsha Yoga is often the result of making agreements (7) with disembodied spirits (12) while in a state of prayer (12).
When L-12 goes into bhava-6 argumentation, conflict, victims and the underclass, then one loses one's ability to negotiate conflicts. There may follow some desperate actions which are perceived to be "options of last resort" in order to "solve the problem" of the impending loss of personal identity, caused (it is perceived) by enemies, by disease, or by debt.
Thus the opportunity for unintended criminal consequences of rather confused (12) actions, those actions being ultimately manipulated by the spirits on the astral plane (mainly ancestor spirits) who speak in the dream voice.
If L-12 is an aggressive graha, the result could be violent. But generally the result is somewhat diffused.
Examples: Harsha Yoga = L-6 in 12 or L-6 in 8
Example 1 = "Theory of Relativity" 1879-1955 Albert Einstein
Harsha Yoga uttama L-6 Mangala with Rahu occupies bhava-8
Broken social contract (6) re-crafted into catastrophic tool of social transformation (atomic bomb, 8)
Jews in anti-Semitic WW-2 Germany, "Theory of Relativity" 1879-1955 Albert Einstein and his family acquired "enemy" caste status (6). They were stripped of citizenship rights (6, broken trust in social contract) by the German government, made victims of violence (6), and scheduled for annihilation (8, conditions of death).
By the auspice of Harsha Yoga, Einstein and family were moved to Princeton University in USA, where he was able to live a quietly productive intellectual life.
The L-6 uttama-Mangala with Rahu is as disruptive and destructive as possible, yet the native is not harmed by it and in fact, Mangala in 8 destroys the likely slavery (nichha Chandra) conditions in 6.

Most of the negative implications of randhra bhava = feeling overwhelmed by fear due to catastrophic shocks. Bhava-8 can be a setting for trauma and terror.
The beauty of Sarala Yoga = terror of the unknown (8) is weakened in the bhava of accusations (6) and spiritual guidance (12). Result = a favorable but necessarily transformative outcome.
L-8 in bhava-6
L-8 in 11th-from-swakshetra = profits from keeping secrets, handling disasters, or making a shocking discovery.
Surprising gains arise from situations in which:
on the basis of occult phenomena, secretive behaviors, hidden monies, trauma, widowhood or sudden death of partner, shocking discoveries, sudden emergence, catastrophic or sudden, forced change (8)
which produces fruit (11) of lawsuits, illnesses, divorce, pollution, impoverishment or war (6)
even potentially catastrophic lawsuits or other accusation of crimes are typically avoided when the auspicious Sarala Yoga is present in the nativity.
The native may indeed have committed a crime but the punishments are largely escaped via clever and well-timed transformations.
For example, well-timed change of passport, political revolution in your favor, sudden disappearance of evidence, surgical change of appearance or convincing new identity ( e.g. USA witness protection program)
L-8 in bhava-12.
L-8 in 5th-from-swakshetra = gambling wins from keeping secrets, handling disasters, or making a shocking discovery.
Surprising brilliant performance arises from situations in which:
Unless other factors intervene, the L-8 in 12 helps neither marriage loyalty nor personal longevity
L-8 controls the shocking power of sudden, enforced changes that are typically catastrophic in nature. While philosophers and magicians appreciate the need for these massive and painful turnings of the cycle of birth, death and rebirth, the common people live in dread of disastrous and unexpected change.
Sudden death is the most typical expression of the L-8, although L-8 can also bring terrible taxes, emergency surgery, psychological trauma, devastating news such as finding out about a spouse's secret extramarital affair, etc. The effect is shock, often brutal.
L-8 trauma-power is dissolved in dreamlike 12.
L-8 going into 6 moves the L-8 devastating shock more into a mode of normal human conflict, disappointment, broken promises, and normal frustrations. The cycle of birth and death does not turn so violently when L-8 goes into 6. the native might feel sick or upset, but one will not die.
Examples: Sarala Yoga L-8 in 6 or L-8 in 12
Example 1 = Sarala Yoga = L-8 +L-7 Shani occupies bhava-6
Gain of an improved new identity via the trauma of transformation:
On 02-Aug-1923, USA Pres-30 "Price of Freedom" Calvin Coolidge suddenly became the 30th president of the United States.
Example 3 = Sarala Yoga
success via divorces, addictions, and public accusations of infidelity
Example 4 = Sarala Yoga
USA Pres-32 partner "Learn by Living" Eleanor Roosevelt
L-8 Chandra in 12 = disempowerment of threat of annihilation
Massive threat of worldwide destruction (8) was handled efficiently and successfully via unofficial, private, invisible discussions with world leaders (12) as she flew around the world providing covert diplomacy during WW-2 while her husband the USA president was paralyzed and unable to travel.
Example 5 = Sarala Yoga * double-power
USA Pres-37 (resigned) Richard Nixon
L-8 Shani occupies bhava-12
Sarala Yoga of L-8 in 12 brings sudden, unexpected (8) healing and rebirth (8) into environments of imaginative vision (12) and distant lands (12)
Despite his profound domestic troubles including banishment from USA government office (Rahu-10, fall from high place) President Nixon was broadly acknowledged as a powerfully transformative agent of international relations in one specific environment: the mutually terrifying (8) 1970's relationship between USA and China (12).
Even after the "sudden and unexpected crisis" (8) of his humiliating impeachment for criminal acts, Nixon was credited with almost single-handedly creating top-level memoranda-of-understanding relationships with the leaders of Communist China, a distant land (12) previously perceived as inscrutable (8, camouflage) and frightening (8, fear of unknown).
China's government (Shani) and values (Shukra) was based on massive forced conformity (Shani) that threatened the the American values (Shukra) of individuality and democracy. Yet Nixon was not deterred by these differences; he saw a "big picture" evolution (8) in process and he was not intimidated. Sarala yoga 8-12 relieves fear of unknown.
This transformative achievement indeed ushered in a new era of global civilization. His secretive (8) behind-closed-doors (12) diplomacy (Shukra) succeeded. (It could easily have been a catastrophic fail.) and the success rescued his public reputation from complete iniquity. With each passing year historical commentators seem to look more favorably upon his imaginative (12) alliance (Shukra) with the former terrible threat (8) from the government (Shani) of a distant land (12).
This May-2010 news article from CNN.com (without accompanying Jyotisha charts) exemplifies the process of a Viparita Raja Yoga, especially of the Sarala (8th) variety.
All sorts of mysterious and often catastrophic influences - bribery, corruption, scandal, disorderly transfer of power, sudden death -- have cleared the native's path to the ruling seat in his government.
However it remains to be seen whether he has the Right Stuff to hold this Oddly-gained position.
The protagonists are members of the presidential administration of Nigeria in 2010:
Whatever the case, he has no further to rise and his political prowess and skill will now be truly tested as he tries to introduce his promised reforms before elections next year.

Surprising wisdom arises from situations in which:
One is enlightened via religious or philosophical truth which teaches the hidden vitality of
"destruction of dissolution via wisdom"
excellent assist for longevity; increases the vitality via access to tantrik or magical truths
