What are the effects of Sasha yoga in Vedic astrology?

Sasha Yoga

Saturn is strong and placed in the Cardinal house, similarly the presence of Saturn placed in three signs namely Capricorn, Mool Trikona sign; Aquarius and Libra.

Within 1-10 degrees, at positive side, when Saturn is present in 4th, 7th and 10th houses, then this Sasha Yoga is considered as much strongest Yoga.

On the other hand Saturn when in planetary association with functional benefic or Yogakaraka planet will lead to amplified results of Sasa Yoga.

This one is last fifth among the Panch Mahapurush Yoga, whereas planetary affliction over Saturn will lead to less or negligible results of Sasa Yoga in a horoscope.

Cancellation of Maha Purush Yoga:

As per classical texts Mansagri, chapter 13, says The conjunction of the Yoga creating planets if conjoins with the Sun or Moon then Yoga gets nullified or becomes ineffective.

If the lord of the sign Yoga producing planet is conjunct or aspect by it’s debilitation lord for example for Sasa Yoga, Saturn is a Yoga producing planet and it’s exaltation sign lord is Venus, but it get debilitated in Virgo sign and it’s lord is Mercury, so any relation between them gives cancellation of this Yoga.

Whereas there are some more other factors which gives cancellation of Mahapurusha Yoga, which are as follows:

  • If Yoga giving planet is combust or weak.
  • If it is aspected by it’s debilitation sign lord.
  • If Weak Moon joins with Yoga giving planet.
  • If Yoga giving planet conjoins with the Ketu.
