An Add On Fortune
Here, we will discuss about one of the very rare but very important yoga of Parashar astrology which is Maha Bhagya Yoga and trust me my article will not be one line definition like other articles as I am going to show all good and bad aspects of this yoga because I have many points to share along with sufficient horoscopes as examples.
All the books which I have read till now along with all information which are available in internet is nothing more than a definition and copy and pasted result from Indian classics, you won’t find a detailed version of this yoga which includes practical approaches anywhere.
Anyways, whatever I am writing here is my own practical observation hence all the errors and mistakes related to this article are mine only.
Maha Bhagya itself a powerful word and tells its own meaning as Maha means “Great” and Bhagya means “Fortune”, hence Maha Bhagya means Great fortune.
As per definition mentioned in classics “If male born in day time and Ascendant falls in odd sign as well as Sun and Moon also occupies odd signs in birth (D-1) chart then presence of this yoga is confirmed.
However, in case of female, Birth time must be in night and Ascendant, Sun & Moon should be in even sign in birth chart to get this yoga.
And if we go as per possibility for ascendant wise, so out of 12 ascendants six are reserved for male and remain six for female because only male born with Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius, ascendant can have this yoga and female born with Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces ascendant can get this yoga.
However, its known as one of rare yoga because there are three parameters should match at same time (at the time of birth) then only formation of this yoga is possible, and these three parameters are –
1 – Birth Time (Day for Male and Night for Females)
2 – Ascendant rising sign (Should be odd for male and even for females)
3 – Sign placement of luminaries (Both Should be in odd signs for male and Even sign for females)
But there are many differences I have found in matter of manifestation and result of this yoga which I am going to present here with horoscopes but before it I would like to clarify all the involved point which are responsible for this yoga like meaning of day and night time for different genders, Importance of sun and moon with odd even signs, and foremost important uses of Lagna and why all these together are so important??
So, let’s understand one by one with logical approach -
First parameter of this yoga is “Birth Time”, whenever you search anything about this yoga so you will get only one liner answer mentioned as “for male birth should be in day time and for female’s birth should be in night time”, further no clarification available.
So, let me clarify it more, as we all knows, day and night are associated with Sun and Moon which are significator of masculine and feminine energies hence day time has been considered good for male birth and night time is considered good for female birth.
And a day start when Sun rises and day ends when Sun sets and night starts when sun vanishes completely in the sky, but as we know Sun rising and set time could be different season wise (Summer, Winter, Rainy Season), hence use google and check sun rising and set time of your Janam tithi (Birth date), same for females as must check sun set time of your birth date which is beginning of night to till sun rise again which is signal for end of night.
So, if we consider an average sun rise and sun set calculations then we can consider from morning 6.30 AM to 7 to 8 PM (in summer days are quite long) good for male birth, and 8 PM to 5 AM for female birth, but again I will suggest to use google to see exact time of sun rise and sun set for your date of birth specially if you (male) are born in early morning or late evening, and same for females also like if any female born at 7.20 PM in May - Jun but if Sun rays are still presence in the sky then we can’t consider it night time, so please be careful here.
However, another point regarding birth time is, can we consider all to be equal lucky if one born in morning, afternoon or evening (in case of male), or night or mid night (In case of female)???
So, answer is No here again there is a condition, Early morning and late evening time bit less powerful than afternoon (in case of male), and Early night and late night time is bit less than mid night, and logic behind it is that, at afternoon sun reaches to its full power (Peak time), Same with Moon also as at mid night moon reaches on its peak and shines with its full power.
Overall, we can say Male birth from 12 PM to 4 PM and female birth from 12 AM to 4 AM is more powerful than other time because during these timings sun and moon shine with their full powers and its known as peak time for them.
So, I hope concern related to Birth time is clear Now.
Next point is Rising Sign in the birth ascendant, so let’s discuss on that -
As per yoga definition in case of male rising sign in the ascendant should be odd, and in case of female ascendant rising should be even sign.
Note - Out of 12 zodiac signs 6 are odd and 6 are even signs, as Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius, known as Odd sign and Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces known as even sign.
As first house of birth horoscope is known as “Ascendant” and its signifies “you”, people think that, ascendant is associated with only personality however I say “no” its more than that, let me clarify -
As we know there are 12 houses in horoscope, and apart from first house (ascendant) there are more 11 houses which affect your Lagna, like after first house there is a second house which signifies speech, wealth, family etc.
But use your common sense and tell me who gets the family, to whom this wealth belongs to, or who’s speech is second house signifying???
Yes, it’s all associated with first house means “You”.
Third house is house of self-efforts, siblings, then who puts self-efforts in their work, or to whom these siblings belongs to???
Yes, it’s all belongs to “You” means all these effects reaching to first house.
Fourth house is home, mother, vehicles, etc then whose mother is this, or who gets this home or vehicles??
Yes, it’s you, because she is your mother and it’s your house and it’s you who gets pleasure of the vehicle.
Fifth house is house of education, love affairs, kids, then who gets these things??
Yes, it goes to first house means you are receiving it, whether your fifth house giving you complete education or breaks in education so that breaks or success all belongs to you, same thing with your love affairs, and kids as they all are yours.
Sixth house is seen for debt, disease, then who takes this debt, who gets these diseases??
Yes, it’s again “You” who experienced these odd situations of life.
Like same way, seventh house is marriage, eight house is death, 9th house Dharma, 10th house profession, 11th gains, and 12th house loss and Moksha, but who receive this???
If there is Dhan yoga or bad yoga’s available in your charts which causing pain or pleasure then who is getting this pain or pleasure given by these yoga’s??
It’s all belongs to you, overall all good or bad from 2nd house to 12th house reaches to the first house (Lagna), which means “you” because you are getting all the pains and pleasure coming from other houses, the day you will die rest 11 houses (from 2nd to 12th) automatically become inactive because “you are no more” and will not be physically there to experience that coming pain or pleasure.
Hence first house signifies you, and strength of first house or Lagna matters here, If Lagna is strong then you become capable to face all the odds coming from evils houses or by evil planets. But if Lagna is weak or afflicted then even small pain you can’t tolerate as you are not strong enough.
However weak Lagna or afflicted Lagna makes you weaker in all matters, hence rising odd signs in ascendant are considered good for male birth and even rising signs are good for females.
Now the last parameter is Sun and Moon, so let’s discuss about them also -
Note – Luminaries means light giving bodies and in astrology only Sun and Moon known as luminaries (Real sources of light).
Strength of Sun and moon increases the richness of your horoscope hence lordships of these two along with house placement and other planetary influences over sun and moon can make or destroy auspicious-ness of this yoga.
Placement of sun and moon in 6th, 8th and 12th houses, or even if depressed by nodes (Causes Grahan yoga) & Saturn in bad houses makes this yoga weaker (however mars being malefic still an exceptional as friendly to sun and Moon), However benefic placed with Sun and Moon will defiantly increase the power of Sun and Moon.
One more point is, in case of Maha Bhagya yoga, Sun and moon should not be placed 6th or 8th places from each other (As it forms Shadastak) because it will make Maha Bhagya yoga weak.
However weakness in any point (Either by weak ascendant or weak/depressed Sun & Moon) in horoscope reveal weakness for specific level in life.
I know you might be waiting to read about its Result and real capability, But that I am going to discuss at last of this article after examples session along with few misconception about this yoga, but lets see few horoscopes first -
Note – Please ignore abbreviation used in horoscopes like HL, GL, GK, AL, MD etc... as these are short forms of specific words like HL (Hora Lagna), GL (Ghatika Lagna), Arudha Lagna, Gulika, Maandi etc… which having their own meaning by presence in specific houses which I will clarify in my upcoming articles as such terms having no relation with this article, so in this article please focus on Ascendant rising sign, Sun, Moon and their sign & house placement only.
Case Study - 1
Above chart belongs to first female prime minister of India Smt. Indira Gandhi, she born at Night at 11:11 PM in cancer ascendant which is an even sign, Sun occupies sign of Scorpio in fifth house which is again an even sign, and moon also occupied an even sign Capricorn in 7th house, Here Sun and Moon are placed 3/11 position from each other, Overall, she got blessed with this yoga as far as I know she was second longest serving prime minister of India.
Case Study - 2
Above horoscope belongs to another Indian female legendary singer, Ms. Lata Mangeshkar, who is yet known as Indian icon and won the title of “Nightingale of India”, and even she is very dear to all Indian, she born at night time 10:35 PM at night where occupied own sign cancer which is an even sign, and sun is sitting in 5th house in another even sign Virgo, and birth ascendant is Taurus is an even sign and presence of Jupiter in Lagna is another advantage as its making her a pious lady, sun and Moon here again placed in 3/11 position.
Case Study - 3
Above chart belongs to Mrs. Jaya Bachchan, one of the famous Indian actress and wife of another legend Mr. Amitabh Bachchan, she born at mid night 02:31:39 AM with an even ascendant Capricorn, where both Sun and moon occupied even Sign Pisces in 3rd house with mercury, which confirms availability of this yoga.
Case Study - 4
Very beautiful Priyanka Chopra who is luck is quite shining these days as she moved to Hollywood from Bollywood, she born at mid night 1:30 AM with an even sign ascendant Taurus with exalted moon (in even sign), Sun is in 3rd house in even sign cancer, Sun & Moon placed here in 3/11 position and having no afflictions, So availability of this yoga is confirmed.
Note – 3/11 positions mean Sun is 3 houses away from moon and moon is 11 houses away from Sun, however 6/8 positions of sun and moon from each other is bit weird.
Now one more point which I wanted to share is that, Maha Bhagya Yoga seems bit more promising if available in all three ascendants means Birth Lagna, Chandra Lagna, and Surya Lagna.
However, to fulfill this point, along with odd even sign placement of Sun and Moon, houses placement should also be odd even as per gender.
Means If male born in day time with ascendant, Sun and Moon in odd sign however if sun and moon also occupied odd houses (1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, 11th).
In case of female birth in night time, and Ascendant, Sun and Moon in occupied even sign but also occupied even houses (2nd, 4th, 10th, but not 6th, 8th and 12th as it’s not good placement for Sun and moon as yoga may still work but can’t give its 100%).

Few more horoscope I am having with me but due to length i could not publish their chart here but I am sharing their names here (Paris Hilton, J paul Getty, Cricketer Donald Bredman, Bhaskarnand Lohani) you can use google to search their chart or will publish in future in another article.
Now let’s discuss the power of this yoga, because I have found bit misconception about its result, or I should not call it misconception because peoples are just copy and pasting output as mentioned in shlokas of Indian classics, anyways let me show my point of view and its better you decide what is right or what is wrong….
As per other astrologers if person born with Maha Bhagya Yoga will live in immense pleasure, promises long life, he or she will be ruler of earth, will be very famous, he/she will be very lucky in all matters, will have huge wealth, will be man or woman of good character, will get long lived spouse, and one south Indian astrologer written in his article that one get this yoga in chart because he/she didn’t think about others except own spouse hence if this yoga is presence then present marital life will be prosperous.
However, trust me, nothing is like that, I have used multiple horoscopes to write this article, few of them I have published above as examples, however left many as I don’t want to make article too long, so only basis of published horoscope I am clarifying my points one by one -
First of all, no one get immense pleasure throughout life as its always mixed with pains, however as far as life luxury is concern so that depends on multiple factors apart from this yoga.
Secondly, Refer horoscope of Rajiv Gandhi, he born 0n 1944 but he got assassinated on 1991 (Died @ 46), means he could not finished even 50 yr. span of his life, Even Indira Gandhi assassinated @ the age of 66, Means Maha Bhagya yoga alone can’t bless with long life.
Third Point is Marriage, refer horoscope of Lata Mangeshkar, he didn’t marry whole life, Rahul Gandhi is yet unmarried (Age 46 yrs), Priyanka Chopra even after being world level celebrity yet unmarried (Age 35), Indira Gandhi who got married but her husband died at the age of 46, Overall all these people having Maha Bhagya yoga but all missed marital happiness???
It means Maha Bhagya yoga can’t promise marital happiness, and you have to look for other factors of horoscope to judge marital happiness.
However, remain point are, Huge wealth, Good character, and luck in all matters, so as per my observation I have seen normal male or females those are involved in extra marital affairs having this yoga, Even very famous Priyanka Chopra accepted that she was having multiple love encounters in her life at some time, So again being a man or woman of good character is questionable with this yoga, Same in matter of Wealth and Luck, all born with this yoga are not equal wealthy or lucky in matter of luxury.
However as far as ruling the world is concern, so please read my article on Raja yoga (Click here to read), where I have clarified that, in modern time nobody can rule entire world or entire earth, because now country limitations are applicable on each one, however if you think about film stars’ life so they could be famous worldwide but remember fame and popularity is merely an influence on others however as far as relation of fame and popularity is concern with Maha Bhagya yoga so I would like to say Maha Bhagya yoga could be a support (Due to involvement of two royal planets) but not guarantee as each one born with Maha Bhagya yoga is not equal famous.
I know you might be thinking when so many loop holes are available in this yoga then why this yoga is considered so powerful and why I am writing such a long article.
Or, why this Jugalbandi (Joint connection) of ascendant, sun, Moon with odd even time is so important???
This question is backbone of this article, so let’s finish it also -
When a person comes in this earth, then he or she gets one physical body (Lagna), Mind (Moon), and a Soul (Sun), and life is not beyond Mind, soul and Body and journey with the time.
So this yoga is nothing but an additional support & signifies Growth for your life in all three level (Physical, Mental and Spiritual or Soul level),
Person born with Maha Bhagya yoga, with Odd (Male) or Even (Female) rising sign personality itself become an influence, they are having capability to influence whomever they meet, Due to involvement of two royal planet (Sun & Moon) person gets one hidden magnetic power which attracts peoples, person become popular in their circle and society, Maha Bhagya yoga also give huge support in political matter, As we know three directions (Spiritual, Mental, physical) of human gets decided by Sun Kundli, Chandra Kundli (Moon chart) and Ascendant (Sudarshan Chakra Method is based on these three only), So this is only a yoga which lift your life from all three angle and makes person an ideal icon.
It’s not necessary that each one born with this yoga becoming celebrity, but certainly attain one level in life as their name becomes an identity of family, if we ask karmically answer, so you can consider it rewards of past blessings in present birth, which converting your fortune into great fortune, Maha Bhagya yoga is Add On support for your horoscope which increases overall potential of birth chart.
However, if you are looking for huge wealth and worldwide popularity then please also look for other supportive wealth and popularity producing combinations in your chart, as Maha Bhagya yoga can be a good support in all matter as providing great support in professional matter also from middle age (After certain maturity level) but alone can’t guarantee for everything.
Maha dasha is not a concern here, as progress of life in all three level starts since birth and happens till death, Maha Bhagya yoga is a conditional yoga (When all required condition will be fulfilled then only formation of Maha Bhagya yoga is possible) hence can’t consider this yoga too dependent on Maha dasha’s.
Take examples of horoscopes – Indira Gandhi faced Sun & Moon Maha Dasha in very early age and she never faced Maha Dasha of Sun and Moon again after childhood but still she was a well-known powerful personality of Indian history.
In case of Lata Mangeshkar, Sun and Moon Dasha came in her life (1973 to 1989) when she was facing her peak time here Maha Bhagya yoga supported her to reach her maximum stardom.
Priyanka Chopra, born in balance Dasha of an exalted Moon and never going to face Sun Maha Dasha but she is still successful and shining like Sun and Moon in glamour industry.
Jaya Bachchan, Maha Dasha of Sun and Moon came in (from 1990 – till 2006), however she was already a well-established actress, however in moon Maha Dasha she joined politics.
Dheeru Bhai Ambani, faced Maha Dasha of Sun and Moon before 25 years of his age and died before cycle repetition however still he created Indian largest business empire reliance group.
Now one question I am leaving for you people to resolve is that “If so much information is available to write then why astrologer write one line definition along with two-line result about any yoga’s???
Anyways its not my concern, I am just sharing my knowledge and like Sun and moon even luck having its own rising time because -
