    • straight (not crooked)

    • upright, sincere, candid, honest
  • Viparita Raja Yoga = in the right place at the right time when things go wrong.

    • Viparita Raja Yoga gives a sudden opportunity to gain worldly power through an unfortunate or negative situation.

    • For example, upheaval (8) in organizational ranks caused by the death or scandal (6) causing the loss (12) of a corporate officer, could provide the window of opportunity for sudden promotion.

    • When VRY applies, the obstacles which normally prevent one from obtaining benefits, such as enemies (6), conditions

    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.

    • To maintain a VRY-type sudden, power-vacuum promotion, one must have the genuine skills to do the job.

    • The Viparita Raja Yoga only provides the shocking change in a fixed environment which opens the door to power; but to keep the power, one must have a genuine Raja combination somewhere else in the nativity -- else the pretender soon will be deposed.

    • sometimes the Viparita " crooked" Raja Yoga implies a degree of schadenfreude = taking pleasure at the ill fortune of others.

      But normally the VRY native is not a malicious person at all.

      Rather, some event which harms others through no fault of the native happens to create a positive opportunity in the native 's life. And as always the native must possess the necessary assets - wealth, character, alliances -- to develop and continue the Viparita Raja Yoga "window of opportunity".

      Otherwise, the moment of privilege will soon expire.

    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

    • the L-6 cannot be also L-1+ L-5, or L-9

    • the L-8 cannot be also L-1+ L-5, or L-9

    • the L-12 cannot be also L-1+ L-5, or L-9

    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)

    important:

    • VRY does not apply with L-6 in 6+ L-8 in 8, or L-12 in 12

    Parivartamsha = No VRY

    VRY does not work properly when there is a parivartamsha

    • between L-6 and L-8

    • between L-6 and L-12

    • between L-8 and L-12.

    The parivartamsha reinforces the L-6+L-8+L-12 so that the dushthamsha lord gets its negative powers restored.


    • 8th-from = destroys and rebirths the container of the life force

    • 12th-from= dissipates and dissolves the life force itself

    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 litigationwhich 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.

    • The pattern often emerges several times during long incarnations.

    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.

    • the Harsha Yogi will normally be able to evade hostile enemies through clever camouflage. "Theory of Relativity" Albert Einstein was able to escape the vicious Gestapo (6) of Nazi Germany during WW-2.

    • USA Pres-34 Dwight D. Eisenhower avoided the detection of the Nazi forces of occupies France when mounting the dangerous Normandy Invasion on "D-Day" in WW-2. His wartime extramarital affair (Shukra) and the parallel adventures of his wife (Shukra) were also successfully denied, preventing scandal.

    • in the grief and confusion following the 1963 assassination of her husband USA president-35 JF Kennedy, Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis -- a well-connected art appreciator (Vrishabha) -- was able to transport from the White House into her personal dwelling, a hidden quantity of precious art (Vrishabha-8) and elegant gifts. Most of these high-value items were given by foreign dignitaries to the USA president at official meetings; some had more historic origin. The White House asset-accounting procedures were inadequate in those days and wrongdoing (6) could not be proved. She was never asked to return these treasures to the government. However, after this event, the policy for outgoing presidents was clarified to insure that gifts to the president are gifts to the nation not to the individual.

    • Christian Science Healing Mary Baker Eddy was regularly accused of fraud and plagiarism but was generally unaffected ; her church grew despite the slander. Also Rahu-Kumbha-6, privilege via illicit activity.


    Avoiding the most harmful effects of Divorce

    "Play to Win" real-estate financier, televisadero Donald Trump L-6 Shani in 12 yuti Shukra.

    Mr. Trump married fashion model Ivana Zelničkova and they produced three children. When Mr. Trump fell in love with Marla Maples, he and Ivana did divorce in a very public display.

    • However, in addition to being marital spouses and co-parents, Donald and Ivana had been successful business partners. Rather than end their marriage in a financially destructive acrimonious capital loss, they resolved all financial disputes out of court.

    • The post-divorce relationship which this pair developed on the basis of their continued professional collaboration was so successful that "The Donald" hosted one of Ivana's subsequent weddings at his lavish Florida estate. Unlike many who experience divorce as a devastating financial loss, both ex-partners avoided this trouble and have since generated significant personal fortunes.


    Most of the negative implications of Ripu bhava are associated with mental disturbance from animosity, debt, or disease.

    The beauty of Harsha Yoga = the bitterness of disagreement (6) is weakened when the L-6 enters the bhava of sudden shocks (8) or the bhava of retreat into the imagination (12) . L-6 in 8 or L-6 in 12 will either force (8) or guide (12) most conflicts into a favorable 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 capital wealth (3)

    • on the basis of lawsuits, disagreements, divorce, illnesses, pollution, impoverishment or war (6)

    one is able to craft a message (3) which explains:

    • occult phenomena, secretive behaviors, hidden monies, trauma, rejuvenation, revelations and discoveries, the cycles of birth and death (8)

    USA "Moral Majority" political televangelist Rev. Jerry Falwell was blessed by the stars to be able to transform (8) the promise-breaking behavior (6) whereby traditionally, pious Christian preachers had no contact with the toxic worldly concerns of politics. For nearly two decades, using the tax law (8) which protects religious pursuits, he transformed the donations of "sinners" (6) into a tremendous hidden power (8) to control national political elections.

    His tax-free and often predatory (6) fundraising in the televangelism industry mixed skillfully in an entirely hidden way with sources of hidden money (8) to produce an earnings powerhouse (11) completely free of taxation (8th = 11th from 10th government) . Falwell was also a popular book-writer whose writings on "born-again" (8) themes appealed to the denizens of the satkona.

    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.

    • Bhagavan Shri Ramana Maharshi of Arunachala * parivartamsha L-8 Guru-7. He was able to demonstrate convincingly via argument to his followers that he did not wish to prevent tje fleshly suffering caused by his rampant cancer (6), since he understood the principle of eternal life (8) and he appreciated the karmic utility of the situation.


    L-6 in bhava-12 = "sleeping with the enemy"

    L-6 will reside in 7th-from-swakshetra =

    Surprising equity (7)

    • on the basis of conflict, lawsuits, disagreements, divorce, illnesses, pollution, impoverishment, war (6)

    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 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 8 destroys debt and eradicates illness .

    • Therefore+ L-6 in 8 indicates wealth and health. These natives almost never suffer usurious loans for home mortgage, university diploma or automobile purchase; they are rarely sick in the flesh-body; minimal marital conflict -- unless some other factor evokes the animosity of Ari bhava.

    • The pious cover-up:

      • One is fond of saying that one has virtuously saved the money so that no loan was needed for essential but expensive items like homes, educations, automobiles, or medical treatment.

      • However, on closer inspection it is generally the case that a hidden source of funds such as money from parents (inheritance) or a corporate no-repayment loan has protected the native from assumption of debt.

      • Personal virtue is rarely a motivating cause in matters of L-6!

      Graha which are plunged into obscurity of Vyaya bhava do not lose their karaka functionality but the occupants of their ruled bhava = drained of power.

      • Thus L-6 in 12 dissolves the power of L-6 the debt lord.

      • Harsha Yoga partly or completely dissolves poverty due to indebtedness.

      Harsha Yoga destroys disagreements; therefore in the period of the L-6 which occupies 8 or 12, a special window of opportunity may open during which one may obtain access to a desired person, position, object, or experience.


    • L-6 in 12 is less extreme and less immediately effective, although ultimately the effective = the same 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 the house of 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.

    Sarala Yoga


    L-8 in bhava-12


    L-8 in bhava-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.

    • Mysterious or un-diagnosable diseases, threat of annihilation, hidden dangers and secret forces (8) are disempowered when these terrors are brought into accusatory litigation (6)


    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 by 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:

    • 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)

    • one channels a divine creative intelligence (5) that throws a Bright Light upon the world of spiritual imagination (temporarily: hallucination); private bedroom relationships, dissolution of flesh-body identity, imprisonment, hospitalization, or long sojourn in distant lands (12)

    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.

    Public Figures


    L-12 in bhava-6


    L-12 in bhava-8

    L-12 in bhava-6 = L-12 in 7th-from-swakshetra

    Surprisingly equable agreements are negotiated (7)

    • loss of identity, imprisonment, hospitalization, withdrawal into imaginative worlds, relationship to spirit guides, private bedroom relationships, long sojourn in distant lands (12)

    which are caused by:

    • lawsuits, divorce, illnesses, pollution, poverty, or war (6)


    L-12 in bhava-8 =

    L-8 resides in 9th-from-swakshetra =

    Surprising wisdom arises from situations in which:

    • on the basis of loss of identity, imprisonment, hospitalization, withdrawal into imaginative worlds, relationship to spirit guides, private bedroom relationships, long sojourn in distant lands (12)

    One is enlightened via religious or philosophical truth which teaches the hidden vitality of

    • occult phenomena, secretive behaviors, hidden monies, trauma + healing, widowhood and sudden death of partner, shocking discoveries, catastrophic or sudden change, turning of the cycles of birth and death (8)

    "destruction of dissolution via wisdom"

    excellent assist for longevity; increases the vitality via access to tantrik or magical truths

    Viparita Raja Yoga Examples

    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 Calvin Coolidge suddenly became the 30th president of the United States.

    • Coolidge had been a somewhat obscure vice-president, selected in a smoke-filled political caucus room. Suddenly (8) the working USA Pres-29 Warren G. Harding died a shocking death (8) due to congestive heart failure.

    • Coolidge, a lifelong politician with strongly paternalistic (Karkata) views, no doubt appreciated the opportunity to bring his policies into power. He also had the genuine patriotic (4) and executive (10) capability to retain the power. After the remarkable Sarala Yoga opened the door for him, Coolidge won the next presidential election on his own capabilities and merits.

    Example 3 = Sarala Yoga

    success via toxicity, accusations, litigations, and chronic social conflict

    • L-8 Shani in 6 = respected practitioner in the legal management of hidden-cause (8), high-conflict environmental pollution (6) cases.

    • Conflict-management (6) via regulation (Shani) of these dangerous (8) and costly (6) situations involves criminal (6) liability = a difficult business

    • Sarala Yoga = mysterious diseases, hidden dangers and secret forces (8) are disempowered when these terrors are brought into accusatory litigation (6)

    Example 4 = Sarala Yoga

    USA Pres-32 partner, diplomat 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.

    • In private life, Mrs. Roosevelt's creative (5) skill in transmuting her virtual widowhood (8) into a privately rich, complex, and indulgent sexual lifestyle (note her very busy Vrischika bhava-12) was also a positive outcome of Sarala Yoga

    Examples: Vimala Yoga = L-12 in 6 or L-12 in 8

    Example 1 =Vimala Yoga

    L-12 Chandra occupies bhava-8

    = Steven Paul Jobs

    • One person's vitality is completely lost (12) while the native's life is rejuvenated (8)

    in April 2009 during Vimshottari period of L-12 Chandra = Simha-lagna native Steve Jobs underwent successful emergency surgery for a liver transplant. L-12 Chandra = hospitals, bhava-8 =surgery.

    • L-12's loss of vitality and dissolution of the personality identity becomes reborn when L-12 Chandra occupies bhava-8. Naturally someone has to die (8) almost always in a hospital (12), in order to make a human liver available.

    • Viparita Raja Yoga can gain new life (8) from the misfortune of the organ donor whose life force so diminished that the spirit left his body (12) yet from whom a healthy regenerative organ (8) was recovered (8).

    "Totem and Taboo" neurologist Sigmund Freud * L-12 uttama-Surya in 8 yuti Rahu yuti Shukra Escaped Nazi extermination
    Example-2

    Queen of England 1558-1603 Elizabeth-1 * parivartamsha L-12 Budha-8

    Queen of England 1558-1603 Elizabeth-1 enjoyed a remarkable parivartamsha between L-12 Budha-8 and L-8 Shani-12. Her randhrabhava contains Ketu, Shukra and Budha which would normally suggest a relatively short lifespan. However the longevity is much increase by Shani's parivartamsha with Budha and she is protected in her many internecine dealings by the force of law.

    Example 2 =

    L-12 Chandra-6 *

    brings imaginative vision into conflicts with enemies

    • despite his many character flaws, President Nixon was broadly acknowledged to possess a remarkable gift = his ability to forge relationships with enemies in distant lands

    • Even after his impeachment and banishment from USA politics, the otherwise-villain was credited with almost single-handedly creating top-level relationships with USA's previous enemy Communist China - a nation which (at the time) was based on values that were criminally adversarial to the foundational principles of the USA.

    • This achievement rescued his public reputation from iniquity, and indeed historical commentators seem to look more favorably upon his imaginative alliance with the former enemy, with each passing year

    Examples: Harsha Yoga = L-6 in 12 or L-6 in 8

    Example 1 = "Theory of Relativity" physicist 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" physicist 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.

    • Of course, once settled in the USA, his physics knowledge was quickly put to use designing the most terrible bomb (8) of all.

    • This VRY is particularly interesting because one personal evil (6) was clearly traded for another larger, social evil.

    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.

    • Also in nichha Chandra / uttama-Mangala period, Einstein won the Nobel Prize for Physics.
    • There is much speculation that his work drew heavily upon hidden sources (8) including unacknowledged scholarly colleagues who became his enemies (8) and his physicist wife whom he divorced (6) shortly before winning the honor.

    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:

    1. "In what are widely considered the most flawed elections in Nigeria's history [Goodluck Jonathan and Umaru Yar'Adua] won.

    2. Nov-2009, President Umaru Yar'Adua was taken to Saudi Arabia because of a heart condition -- but without signing over power to his vice president.

    3. Since November [2009], Jonathan and his supporters struggled to gain presidential power against an array of factions competing for influence and power.

    4. In February [2010], Jonathan was finally made acting president by the House of Representatives.

    5. With Yar'Adua's death [in April 2010] and the consequent swearing in of Jonathan to the presidency, Jonathan has now solidified his position.

    6. Some Nigerians put Jonathan's rise to power down to 'good luck.' The removal of those above him -- through no act of his own -- provided the opportunity for his rise. Others credit him with the political patience to sit out events until they play in his favor.

    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.
