Before we start with understanding what is “Sakata Yoga”? And how it is formed? It is important to understand human psychology. As per the human psychology and human behavior, humans like to be stable in every aspect of their lives; whether it is work, place of residence or in general, life for that matter.
However, when a person has the Sakata Yoga in his or her horoscope; that person will never stabilize. Sakatam, basically means a “Wheel” and hence like the wheel keeps rolling, a person who has Sakata Yoga in their needs to constantly keep moving from one place to another; it can either be for work or for some other reason.
The Sakata Yoga is formed, when the Jupiter and the moon are in 6th, 8th and 12th positions from each other as far as the horoscope is concerned. For example, if Jupiter is in Sagittarius and the Moon is in Cancer, then this yoga will be formed. In Sakata Yoga what matters and the key is the House positions and not the Sign. Sakata Yoga is not one of the most auspicious yoga formations. On the other hand, it is also important to understand that the Sakata yoga, which is related to the positioning of the planets, does not affect the basic characteristics or basic personality of the person.
For a person who has Sakata Yoga in their horoscope experience rise and fall simultaneously in their life. Such people also tend to see success late in their lives and during a fixed point in their lives; they tend to lose everything that they have achieved so far. Also, these are the people who get distracted very easily and they continuously need to push themselves forward in life and clutch their goals.
This Yoga can be found in the horoscope of Bala Saheb Thackarey, almost all Indians were aware about the struggles he did in life.
When the Moon and the Jupiter are in the Kendra, they form the Gajkesari Yoga; on those lines, the result that this yoga delivers in life is the opposite of Gajkesari Yoga. Hence the person who has this yoga in their horoscope tends to be tired and highly stressed and will always find himself or herself in some or the other trouble of some sort. In such cases, most of the stress is unnecessary.
