Shiva Yoga is a divine yoga that bestows numerous benefits when it occurs in the birth chart of an individual. It is a rare Yoga which occurs when the lord of the ninth house is placed in the tenth house and the lord of the tenth house is placed in the fifth house. Also, the lord of the fifth house should be in the ninth house in the horoscope for the formation of Shiva Yoga.
Individuals who have Shiva Yoga in their horoscopes are blessed with spiritual wisdom but they also serve a commanding position in their workplace. Such people usually secure a top position in the army or are head of an institution. This Yoga also bestows travel opportunities to a person and therefore he also can be a trader or marketing person in today’s world.
This strength of the Shiva Yoga also depends on the relation between the lords of the fifth, ninth and tenth houses. The fifth and ninth houses are strong trines but the tenth house is a strong Kendra. Disposition of the lords of these respective houses gives rise to powerful fortune and improves wisdom and philosophical thinking as well.
A powerful Shiva Yoga is formed when Sun i.e. lord of the fifth house is placed in the house of Jupiter i.e. the 9th house and lord of the 10th house i.e. Saturn is firmly placed in his own house.
Let us look at the finer details of Shiva Yoga with an example. Sir Albert Einstein’s horoscope is a good example of Shiva Yoga. Saturn who is the lord of 9th house is placed in the 10th house and Jupiter resides in the 9th house.
Moreover, Jupiter forms a conjunction with Saturn and Venus which proves to be beneficial in many ways.
Such people do not worry about materialistic things but are passionate about their work which gives them immense wealth and success as well.
We all know about the contribution of Einstein in the field of Physics and scientific discoveries. It is because of his Shiva Yoga and powerful 1st, 5th and 9th houses that give him wisdom and scientific approach in life.
