Dhana yogas are astrological combinations or yogas for wealth and prosperity which prove
more fruitful if both the lagna and its lord are strong, and there are no Arista yogas present
affecting the Dhana yoga - causing planets and the bhavas associated with earning,
acquisition and accumulation of wealth. Jupiter is the natural Dhana-karaka (significator of
wealth), a strong Jupiter gives lifelong prosperity and financial stability.

Indicators of wealth[edit]
According to the Parasari School of Hindu astrology the lord of the 2nd house or bhava
counted from the lagna (birth ascendant) and the 11th bhava are concerned with earning and
accumulation of wealth. Along with these two bhavas the other bhavas to be reckoned with
are the 5th and the 9th bhavas which are known as the abodes of Lakshmi, the Goddess of
wealth; the inter-relationship of these bhavas, which are wealth-giving bhavas, and their
respective lords, ensure wealth and prosperity. Planets simultaneously owning two wealth-
giving bhavas become the prime indicators of wealth, the strongest indicator is the one that
owns both the 2nd and the 11th bhavas and the next in order are the ones who own the 5th or
the 9th. Dhana yogas depend on the lord of the 2nd who determines wealth, in-flow of wealth
i.e. income, is to be judged from the 11th, gains through speculation from the 5th and sudden
unexpected gains from the 9th bhava.[1] Hindu astrology considers the 2nd house as the house
of accumulated wealth, and the 11th as the house of gains, these lords associated with the
lords of the 5th and 9th give rise to formidable Dhana yogas which if unblemished and
formed by benefic planets promise much wealth.[2] The lords of the 1st, the 2nd, the 5th, the
9th and the 11th bhavas mutually associating cause Dhana yogas to arise, but only when the
said yogas happen to connect with the lagna that more significant result are seen derived.[3]

Dhana Yogas[edit]
Dhana yoga occurs- a) when the lord of the lagna and the lord of the 2nd together, associate
with the lord of the 5th, the 9th or the 11th bhava; b) or when the lord of the 2nd associates
with the lord of the 5th, the 9th or the 11th bhava; c) or when the lord of the 5th associates
with the lord of the 9th or the 11th bhava d) or when the lord of the 9th associates with the
lord of the 11th bhava. Parashara has paid extraordinary attention to the 5th and the 9th
bhavas in Dhana yoga formations, thus,

Venus in the 5th in own house and Mars in the lagna,

Mercury in the 5th in own house and the Moon, Mars and Jupiter in the 11th

The Sun in the 5th in Leo and the Moon, Jupiter and Saturn in the 11th

Saturn in the 5th in own house and the Sun and the Moon conjoining in the 11th

Jupiter in the 5th in own sign and Mercury situated in the 11th

Mars in the 5th in own sign and Venus in the 11th

Moon in the 5th in own house and Saturn in the 11th

give rise to fruitful Dhana yogas. The lagna and the lord of the lagna also contribute to Dhana
yoga formation. Thus,

the Sun in Leo lagna associating with Mars and Jupiter;

Moon in Cancer lagna associating with Mercury and Jupiter;

Mars in own lagna associating with Mercury, Venus and Saturn;

Mercury in own lagna associating with Jupiter and Saturn;

Jupiter in own sign in the lagna associating with Mars and Mercury;

Venus in Taurus or Libra lagna associating with Mercury and Saturn;


Saturn in own sign in the lagna associating with Mars and Jupiter

give rise to Dhana yogas. Because they are the Lakshmisthanas i.e. wealth-giving bhavas, the
5th and the 9th bhavas and their lords, and planets associating with the lords of these trines
and trinal lords giving rise to significant Dhana yogas ensure wealth and prosperity. Indu
lagna is also an indicator of wealth, when several planets associate with it or occupy kendras
from it, riches are ensured.[4] Evident as it is from the essential involvement of the lords of the
lagna and the trikonas, gain of wealth is more a result of ones own good previous karmas,
rasi-parivartana between the lord of the lagna and the lord of the 2nd, the Dhana bhava, is
highly desirable.[5]

Special Dhana yogas[edit]


Rahu, Venus, Mars and Saturn combining in Virgo (Kanya) sign give immense
wealth.

The Sun in a kendra in a friendly Navamsa and aspected by the Moon and Jupiter
makes one very rich and learned.

Jupiter, Mercury and Saturn occupying their own signs make one long-lived and gain
riches regularly throughout life.

The lord of the lagna in the 2nd, the lord of the 2nd in the 11th and the lord of the 11th
in the lagna make one amass great wealth

The lord of the 2nd and the 10th in conjunction in a kendra and aspected by the lord
of the navamsa occupied by the lord of the lagna, person becomes wealthy early in
life.

Significance[edit]
In terms of the Parasari principles, the lord of the Dhana bhava i.e. the 2nd house, should
occupy either its own house or a kendra to make one wealthy; the lord of the Dhana bhava
situated in a triksthana i.e. the 6th, the 8th or the 12th, causes loss of wealth. The lord of the
Dhana bhava in its own or exaltation sign and aspected by Jupiter makes one liked by others,
famous, wealthy and generous. Jupiter conjoining with Mars in the 2nd house gives much
wealth and so do the lords of the 2nd and 11th occupying each others house or conjoining in
a kendra or a trikona. The lord of the 2nd in a kendra aspected by Jupiter or Venus and the
lord of the 11th house also situated in a trikonabhava makes one very rich.[6]

Any association of the lords of the 2nd, the 11th, the 5th, and the 9th bhavas, strong and
mutually inclined, indicates gain of wealth. The lords of the Dhanasthana and the
Labhasthana conjoining in a kendra and vested with strength confer much wealth which
increases manifold by these bhava-lords simultaneously associating with the lords of the two
trikonas; the trikona-lords are significators of good-fortune, prosperity and great wealth. The
lords of the 2nd and the 11th in favourable association with Jupiter make one very wealthy.
The association of the bhava-lord and the bhava-karaka is essential in any yoga-formation for
the sake of bringing out the best results signified by that bhava, both should be vested with
requisite strength and be unafflicted. Moreover, a strong benefic planet occupying its
exaltation sign in any one of the afore-stated bhavas makes one rich and prosperous.
Ramanuja in his Bhavartha Ratnakara affirms that an exalted planet situated in the 5th or in
the 9th house makes one exceptionally fortunate and famous; exalted planets promote the
significances of the bhava they happen to occupy.[7]

Mansagari tells us that either the lord of the lagna situated in the lagna or the Moon
conjoining with Mars gives steady wealth and keep one always above want but papagrahas in
the 2nd house or cruel planets in the 2nd and also in the kendras give poverty, whereas
auspicious planets in the 2nd house confer financial prosperity. Janardan Harji further states
that Mars situated in the 8th and /or the Sun in Libra in a trikona certainly make one a pauper
and even beg for alms.[8]
