Important yogas in Vedic Astrology - Part 4
Vedic Astrology gives an important place among predictive techniques to yogas or special combinations or configurations of planets in a horoscope.
Special yogas identified at a glance in a horoscope enable the astrologer reading it to make a snapshot judgment of it: whether the native would achieve great success in life or he would remain in poor and humble circumstances till the end of his life, or whether despite being born into very humble circumstances, would achieve success in the course of time by dint of perseverance or under fortuitous circumstances etc.
In the previous articles we discussed a number of favourable yogas including the Pancha Maha Purusha Yogas. We propose to familiarize our readers with some more important yogas in this article.
