Dur Yoga

Definition: Dur Yoga is formed when the lord of the 10th house is placed in the 6th or the 8th or the 12th houses from Ascendant or the first house.

Results: This is not a fortunate Yoga and it causes hurdles in important and auspicious activities and said to restrict growth in career, loss of income and fame. The person having this Yoga will not get his due rewards in terms of fame and income for his work.

Remarks: The 6th, 8th and 12th houses together are known as ‘trik’ or evil houses in Vedic Astrology and placement of the 10th house lord in any of these evil houses brings unfavorable results related to the 10th house matters. The most important matters signified by the 10th house are career, profession, fame and reputation and Dur Yoga causes obstacles in these matters.
