How Strong is Your Neecha Bhanga Rajayoga?

Neecha Bhanga Rajayoga


This is a very famous and misunderstood yoga, if you have this yoga, then I request you to understand it properly

Neecha bhanga rajayoga arises when you have a Neecha planet and its Neecha Avastha is cancelled. Neecha means debilitation in astrology. In order to analyze Neecha bhanga rajayoga, we need to know the debilitation sign for the planets. I am not taking Rahu and Ketu in consideration because there are various opinion regarding its exaltation and debilitation.

If you have to have a Neecha bhanga rajayoga, you need to have a debilitated planet.


Planets           Exaltation   Debilitation

Sun                Aries            Libra


Moon             Taurus         Scorpio

Mars              Capricorn     Cancer

Mercury         Virgo             Pisces       

Venus             Pisces           Virgo

Jupiter         Cancer              Capricorn

Saturn           Libra               Aries


There are many conditions in the ancient texts about this yoga, but being a practicing astrologer, I can only see three conditions which can give an auspicious Neecha bhanga rajayoga

 These are the 2 conditions


  • The ruler of the debilitated planet should be in a Kendra from Lagna or Moon


Sample Horoscope

Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modiji, has a perfect Neecha bhanga rajayoga with the first condition.

In his chart, Moon is debilitated and the ruler of Moon is Mars. Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and the ruler of Scorpio Mars is in the Kendra from lagna as well as Moon.


The ruler of debilitated planet should be in Kendra, it can be 1, 4, 7 or 10 from lagna or moon.


  • The second condition

I f the exalted Planet of the sign in which it is debilitated is in Kendra from the ascendant or the moon.

Suppose Jupiter is debilitated in Capricorn, Mars is the planet which gets exalted in Capricorn, so Mars should be in Kendra from lagna or Moon

These 2 are the only such conditions where you can expect a powerful Neecha bhanga rajayoga


Raja yoga means power, authority and honor. So, through this yoga, you will be getting a good professional life, but that too in the second half of the life. There is no surety that this condition can make you rich or not as Neecha bhanga Rajayoga in an exclusive yoga for power.


If you have strong dhanayoga, then you can be rich also.

The neecha bhanga rajayoga forming planets should not make connection to 6, 8 and 12th.  Such Neecha bhanga rajayoga may give you lifelong struggles.


If the planets forming Neecha bhanga rajayoga is retrograde of combust that also will make this yoga in effective in your life.


There are so many conditions in different texts, but any condition other than the 2 will not be strong and positive.
