Among the Raj Yogas in astrology, Anapha Yoga is very significant because of the way it affects the life of an individual. This yoga forms when one or more of the planets Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn places itself in the 12th house from the Moon. This is one of the most positive signs in Vedic astrology making an individual healthy, wise, capable and wealthy. This is the Yoga that provides a variety of gifts and can even grant a king-like status to a person.

Among the famous personalities born with Anapha Yoga, Theodore Roosevelt is a prominent name. The famous Indian mystic Ramakrishna Paramhansa displayed this combination in his horoscope. The position of Saturn with relation to the Moon, lead to the tendencies of him being an ascetic. Saturn, though considered an evil planet in general, was the giver of supreme knowledge and renunciation in this case. The wave of spirituality that resulted from Sri Ramakrishna’s birth is a natural consequence of the Anapha Yoga in his horoscope.
Anapha Yoga can be of various forms and has been sub-classified into Subha Adhi Yoga, Papa Adhi Yoga and Mixed Adhi Yoga.
