5. Three yogas, viz, Sunapha, Anapha and Durudhara are formed when the
planets occupy the 2nd and 12th houses reckoned from the Moon. There will be
Kemadruma yoga if the above three Yogas are absent. Some learneds are of the
opinion that there will be Kemadruma Yoga if (1) When a Kendra or the Moon is
associated with a planet (2) When there is a planet in a Kendra from the Moon.
Notes — According to Saravali Kemadruma Yoga is formed if at least one of
the said three yogas (viz., Sunapha, Anapha and Durudhara) is not present or if the
Moon’s angles (Kendras) are devoid of angles or if she is unaspected by all the
planets. Such yoga causes extreme difficulties.
According to Hora Sara (an ancient treatise on Astrology by Prithuyasas) the
Anapha, Sunapha and Durudhara Yogas will not put to effect if the Moon’s or
Lagna’s angles are not occupied. In such case, the Yoga arising is called
Kemadruma which makes even a king beg. To explain this further it may be said
that for obtaining Kemadruma, the Moon should not have a planet on either side or
with it. The Sun’s presence and of course that of nodes, will not nullify the
Kemadruma Yoga. But if there is a planet in any of the Moon angles or from the
angles of Lagna, or if the Moon herself angular to the Lagna, the Kemadruma Yoga
does not exist.
