In Vedic astrology, the fate and nature of an individual are determined by the planets and their position in the person’s kundali. Each of the nine planets influences the native in its characteristic way.
Planets that are in exalted positions in the horoscope strengthen the native with their good effects. The opposite has an equally displeasing effect. Does this mean that a weak planet can only cause adverse effects, with no relief? Well, Neech Bhang Raj Yoga in a person’s kundli helps to stave off adverse conditions.
<h2>Neech Bhang Raj Yoga in Astrology
As the name suggests, Neech Bhang Raj Yoga in Vedic astrology is related to the debilitated planet or ‘neech graha’ in a kundali. These planets are believed to bring only antagonistic results whenever their dasha occurs.
But this might not be the case every time. This yoga indicates the cancellation of the debilitation of the neech graha. It is completely governed by the position of neech graha and strong planet or ucha graha in the kundali.
<h2>How is Neech Bhang Raj Yoga Formed?
Here are some conditions that cause the Neech Bhang Raj.
The weak as well as the strong planet are in the same sign, for example, Sun and Saturn for Aries and Libra; Jupiter and Mars in Cancer and Capricorn; Venus and Mercury in Virgo and Pisces.
The lord of the sign of the weak planet is in a central position or Kendra from the Lagna or Ascendant house. For example, if the Sun is in a weak position in Libra, and as it is stronger in Aries, Neech Bhang occurs if the lord of Aries, i.e., Mars is in Kendra from Ascendant.
The lord of the sign of the weak planet is in a central position or Kendra from the Lagna house. For example, if the Sun is in a weak position in Libra, Neech Bhang occurs if the lord of Libra, Venus is in Kendra position from the Ascendant.
The weak planet of one sign is aspected by its strong planet -- for example, if Mars aspects the Moon which is in a weak position in Scorpio.
The weak planet of two different signs aspect each other -- for example, if the Moon is in Scorpio and Mars is in Cancer.
The weak planet is in a strong position in the Navamsa chart.
