Guru Chandal Yoga is a much-discussed topic in Vedic Astrology. The general views regarding Rahu as a malefic and dangerous planet are changing exceptionally, especially in this modern day where virtual and AI are taking the upper hand. At least for someone interested in making money and loves their worldly life, Rahu is their favourite planet. Guru Chandal Yoga is formed in one's horoscope when Jupiter and Rahu are in conjunction or mutually aspects each other (should be the 7th house aspect). A person with such yoga in their horoscope can be anyone who thinks out of the box or like to question the traditions. They can be atheists, activists, or people who criticize the shadow side of spirituality. (If Jupiter is in its enemy sign (Taurus, Gemini, Virgo and Libra) and Rahu is situated in its enemy Rashi and houses other than the 3rd, 10th, or 11th, then Guru-Chandal Yoga may produce some undesirable results.) So as you can see, this yoga is not as harmful as it seems when people live for their materialistic gains and fulfilment during this Kali Yuga. Even a person who proclaims themselves as spiritual or mystic through mass media or modern-day digital network platforms has tremendous positive influence from both Rahu and Jupiter. Here Jupiter promotes spiritual wisdom and enlightens the person. At the same time, Rahu acts as a catalyst who dig deeper into research and position themselves in the centre stage and limelight by utilizing the power of Jupiter for worldly purposes.
Jupiter-Ketu conjunction is also considered as Guru-Chandal Yoga by Astrologers from previous generations. However, modern-day astrologers keep a different view based on deeper analysis and studies regarding the shadow planets and their characters. Jupiter and Ketu's partnership is different from Jupiter - Rahu. Jupiter and Ketu share almost the exact nature regarding spirituality and wisdom. Jupiter represents spiritual wisdom as well as wealth, whereas Ketu is entirely spiritual who refuses worldly attachments, wealth and materialism. Ketu is, however, logical and analytical, and when it combines with Jupiter, a perfect formula with the right blend of wealth, wisdom, spirituality, insight, intuition and intelligence is formed. The Jupiter-Ketu conjunction (mutual aspect is not counted here as Ketu do not cast any aspect) is also known as Ganesha Yoga, Yogini Yoga and Kela Yoga (Kela yoga is also known as crorepati yoga in South India). All these yogas related to the Jupiter-Ketu conjunction say about spiritual intelligence, intuition, kundalini shakti, wealth and prosperity.
Why Ganesha Yoga or Kela Yoga is seen as Guru-Chandal Yoga?. The answer is in the placement of planets, Jupiter and Rahu. When Ganesha Yoga is formed in a horoscope, Guru-Chandal yoga is also formed simultaneously by the mutual aspect of Jupiter and Rahu. But the power of Jupiter is so high by the conjunction of Ketu, that Rahu's influence over the Guru-Chandal yoga is diminished to a great extent. So it is crucial for the Ganesha Yoga to be clean and positive without any affliction from enemy Rashi, Saturn or Venus. Else the planetary conjunction of Jupiter and Ketu will get disturbed and will not be able to counter the malefic power of Rahu.
In mythology, Ketu is the headless dragon or the tail portion of the cosmic serpent. So the energy of Ketu is to 'see' by its soul as there are no eyes. A person with the right combination of Ganesha Yoga may only get the positive results of abundance if they accept the world as Ketu sees it. A strong Ketu and Jupiter, if present in one's horoscope, forming a Ganesha yoga, can be seen as a boon and sometimes as a curse. Since both planets are strongly connected with the cosmic world without any illusions, the native with such yoga must realize their life's true purpose. Such a powerful conjunction of the two most spiritual and intelligent planets can make you a highly powerful and successful being or destroy every worldly possession you have if you are not in tune with spiritual enlightenment.
Guru-Chandal yoga or Ganesha yoga can give you both negative and positive results, depending on the placement of these planets in the horoscope. To get the best results out of Ganesha yoga, the person has to go through self-enlightenment and spiritual transformation. Moksha trikon houses of 4th, 8th and 12 are powerful places for Jupiter and Ketu. At the same time, these planets need to avoid enemy signs and the influence of other malefic planets. Aries, Cancer, Leo, Scorpio, Sagittarius and Pisces are good for Ganesha Yoga. If Ganesha yoga is formed in a Moksha Trikon along with friendly signs, then the positive effects of Ganesha Yoga can be witnessed. The excellent place / position for Ganesha Yoga or Kela Yoga is 4th house under the sign of Aries, Cancer, Leo or Scorpio. Here both Ganesha and Guru-Chandal Yoga provides the best of both Yogas.
Note: Astrological yoga or dosh or a planetary combination which specifically mentions about the conjunction of planets need to fulfil certain rules of conjunction and that is the conjunction distance between the planets. If the distance between planets is over 15 degrees or too close to each other, which creates a graha yudha (planetary war), then it is not considered as conjunct. But this rule only applies to natural planets and not to shadow planets. Shadow planets functions in a different plane or dimension of planetary energy. Rahu and Ketu, do not enter into a planetary war with other planets, even if it is too close to the planet. It only considers the house and sign it is sitting.

The Sun sign is the Zodiac sign where the Sun is situated during your birth. The Sun sign calculation, according to the western system of astrology, is different from Vedic Astrology. For this reason, some of you may see a difference in the Sun signs per the western system and Vedic birth chart. Sun represents ego, authority, control, intelligence and wisdom. Since Sun represents your Atma or soul, the Sun sign is connected with eternal Karma. Even though the Sun sign is not displaying your visible character, it will reflect your inner thoughts.
The Moon Sign is the Zodiac sign where Moon is posited during your birth. This Sign or Rashi is also known as Janma Rashi or Birth Rashi. In Vedic astrology, this sign is also known as Chandra Lagna and is considered the second most important sign next to Lagna or Ascendant. Since Moon represents your mind, this sign says many things about your personality and character. Your thought process defines your future and destiny, so this sign plays a crucial role in your birth chart.
The Lagna or Ascendant is the rising sign during your birth. Lagna can be considered as 'YOU' in this world. Lagna is also acting as a planet effectively. The lord of this sign is known as Lagna Lord or Lagnesh or Ascendant lord. The most influential planet in your birth chart is also the ascendant lord. This planet will be a natural yoga karaka and a beneficial planet for you. Lagna shows your personality and visible character. It also denotes your vitality and general well-being. This sign is the 1st house among 12 houses in the birth chart. Houses are counted clockwise from Lagna in a South Indian Chart and anti-clockwise direction in a North Indian Chart. - Read More about Lagna and how it is calculated and the difference between Rashi and Lagna - Click Here
Planets in Vedic Astrology are known as Navagraha, or nine planets. Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn are the Saptha Grahas or actual planets. Rahu and Ketu are Chaya grahas or Shadow planets or, in other words, mathematical points. Planets represent our lives and activities in this world, or otherwise, it defines us, the Humans. Our actions, interactions, Karma etc., are connected with these planets, their conjunctions, aspects, positions etc.
Bhava or House represents an area of life and matters related to our life here. Like 12 zodiac signs, there are 12 houses. Houses are counted from Lagna, which is the first House. So when someone says about 4th House, it means 4th House counted from Lagna. - Read more about Bhava or House - Click Here
Nakshatras, or Stars in Vedic astrology, act as a fixed reference point for tracking and calculating the movements of planets. There are 27 (28 including Abhijit Nakshatra) Nakshatras in the Zodiac, and it is equally divided and spread across the 12 Zodiac signs. Each Zodiac sign is capable of containing 2 and 1/4 of Nakshatras. Nakshatras are capable of influencing the characters of a planet which is passing by them. Nakshatra, where Moon is stationed during birth, becomes a person's Birth Star or Janma Nakshatra.
Rashi is generally referred to as a Zodiac sign in Vedic Astrology. There are 12 Rashis in the Zodiac, starting from Aries (Mesha/Medam), Taurus (Vrishab/Idavam), Gemini (Mithuna/Mithunam), Cancer (Karka/Karkidakam), Leo (Singha/Chingam), Virgo (Kanya/Kanni), Libra (Tula/Thulaam), Scorpio (Vrischika/Vrischikam), Sagittarius (Dhanu), Capricorn (Makara/Makaram), Aquarius (Kumba/Kumbam), Pisces (Meena/Meenam)
A Rashi chart or D1 chart is the primary birth chart in Vedic astrology. Rashi chart shows the planet's position and placements in a Rashi sign during your birth. Rashi chart is analysed from a reference point known as Lagna or Ascendant, which becomes the 1st house in a Rashi chart.
A Bhava Chart or chalit chart is a vital addition to Vedic astrology, which helps an astrologer refine the exact position of a planet concerning houses in the birth chart. This chart is prepared by making the Lagna the midpoint of the first house and then calculating the rest of the houses. An astrologer needs to consider any shift of houses created by a planet in a bhava chart while analysing a horoscope.
Drishti, or aspect of a planet, is used when a planet influences another planet or house by sitting 180 degrees opposite the other planet. In Vedic astrology, there are special aspects cast by some planets. For example, Jupiter is capable of aspecting while positioned at 180 deg, 120 deg and 240 deg from a planet or house. Similarly, Saturn can aspect at 180, 60 and 270 degrees, and Mars can aspect at 180, 90 and 210 degrees. All other planets can aspect at 180 degrees from another planet or house.
Shub/Paap Graha in Vedic astrology referred to the malefic and benefic nature of the planet. Sun, Saturn, Mars, Rahu and Ketu are considered natural malefic planets. Jupiter and Venus are Natural Benefics. Moon will be regarded as a natural benefic if birth thithi is between Shukla paksha shashti and Krishna paksha shashti. Mercury will be considered malefic if, in conjunction with other malefic planets.
Does it Really Work?
Remedies have been practised since ancient times. The classical books on astrology like BPHS, Phaladipika etc., have mentioned remedies. However, let's try to achieve the proper perspective about this much accepted and much-debated topic in astrology...
Myth or Fact?
When all the planets are hemmed in between Rahu and Ketu, then this inauspicious Yoga is formed. When a person is having such a combination in their chart are said to have accumulated some bad karma in their past life which they have to identify and correct in the present life. Something like a snake shedding its old skin and growing a new one.
