Rajyoga is a rare desirable phenomenon which occurs only by the combination of powerful stars and planets in one’s horoscope. There are many types of Rajyoga and having even one of them can make life extraordinary.
Dharma Karma Adhipati Yoga is one of the Rajyogas that gives a person a commanding position over others. Such people usually are in charge of a workplace, village or even a nation and therefore, we can see many ministers, well-known business personalities and celebrities having Dharma Karma Adhipati Yoga in their horoscope.
In a horoscope, the ninth house is related to dharma (religion) whereas the tenth house is related to karma (deed or position). A favourable connection of these two houses results in the formation of Dharma Karma Adhipati Yoga.
9th house is the most powerful Trine in a birth chart whereas the 10th house is the most powerful Kendra in the birth chart. Therefore, any relationship between the two gives rise to Dharma Karma Adhipati Yoga.
This Rajyoga occurs due to these possibilities:
- When the lord of the ninth and tenth houses aspect each other
- When lord of the ninth and tenth houses exchange each other’s places
- Both these lords join in Trikon, Upchaya or Kendra.
Let us see the effects of Dharma Karma Adhipati Yoga by studying an example.
Oprah Winfrey is a popular TV actress and host who is well-known for hosting The Oprah Winfrey Show, a one of a kind and an immensely popular show in the history of American television. She is also a great example of Dharma Karma Adhipati Yoga.
On the ascendant, i.e. Lagna Patrika there are some dominant planets which determine her behaviour and success. One of them is Mercury which is also the planet that rules the ninth house. The ninth house is also referred to as the house of destiny, and therefore she is a firm believer in destiny.
A concurrence of Venus and Mercury in the second house give rise to Dharma Karma Adhipati Yoga in her horoscope.
