Astrology is a wonderful science that pin point trouble areas in your life. It will provide you simple solutions for a prosperous life.

What is Gajkesari Yoga

Many auspicious and inauspicious yogas are formed in the horoscope. These have a great impact on a person’s life.

Some yogas are such that they make a man a king from a wretch. At the same time, some yogas do not even delay in making a rank with the king.

One such yoga is called the Gajkesari Yoga. A native who has Gajakesari Yoga in his horoscope, enjoys royal pleasures and is efficient.

Gajakesari Yoga is a highly auspicious yoga in Vedic astrology. It is formed when Jupiter (Guru) and the Moon (Chandra) are in a mutual relationship in a horoscope.

Specifically, Gajakesari Yoga is said to occur when Jupiter is placed in Kendra (i.e. houses 1,4,7,10) houses from the Moon. Else, when the Moon is placed in Kendra houses from Jupiter.

In Sanskrit, “Gaja” means elephant. It represents wisdom, memory and intelligence. “Kesari” means lion. It represents power, will and strength.

The combination of these two powerful animals in the name of the yoga signifies the strength and power that this yoga is believed to bring to the person’s life.

People who will have Gajakesari Yoga in their birth chart will have the potential for great success and fame. They will possess strong leadership skills, intelligence and wisdom. Moreover, they will have the natural ability to inspire and influence others.
