Know about the Importance of Gaj Kesari Yog

Gaj Kesari Yog is one of the many Jyotish, Astrology Yogs, and one of the most popular. The Sanskrit word Gaj means elephant. Kesari means lion. Any Yog generally means a condition or situation due to a union-combination-conjunction of two or more planets and its aspect. 

Gaj Kesari Yog, that is made in any native’s natal birth chart, Janam Kundli, involves 2 celestial bodies, the Earth’s moon, and Jupiter. In Astrology, Jupiter regards the moon as a friend. The moon is neutral with Jupiter. Some natives even refer to and call the Gaj Kesari Yogas the Maha Lakshmi Yog. Lakshmi relates to wealth.

An indication on some of the prominent conditions regarded in the making of Gaj Kesari Yog in a birth chart, according to different schools of Astrology, is under the following circumstances:

  • Specific to Lal Kitab, Jupiter and the moon should be sitting together in one of the Kendra Houses. This is prima facie condition regarded by many Astrologers and Priests
  • According to Vedic Astrology, Jupiter should be in the Kendra House, i.e., 1st, 4th, 7th, or the 10th counting from the moon. Below points are also in relation to Vedic Astrology:
  • The moon should not be seated in the 3rd, 6th, 8th, or the 12th Houses
  • Jupiter should not be aspected-effected by any malefic or harming planet that is spoiling the Kundli
  • Jupiter should not be in the retrograde mode
  • The moon should ideally be present in Houses 3rd, 6th, 8th, ad 12th

The strength or power of the Gaj Kesari Yog in a birth chart is dependent on other astrological aspects, such as, degrees of Jupiter and moon, placement-position, overall view of the Janam Kundli etc. It is believed that if a native’s MahaDasha of Jupiter or the moon is going on, and that Gaj Kesari Yog is forming in this period, then that period is even more favorable and auspicious for even better reward and the result of the Gaj Kesari Yog.

The MahaDasha of the moon is 10 years and the MahaDasha of Jupiter is 16 years.

In transits, Jupiter stays in a sign for about a year. The moon makes a stay for only 2.5 days in each sign.

Some of the benefits of a favorable Gaj Kesari Yog are that it brings auspiciousness in success, wealth, prosperity, assets, property, good post or rank, authority, expertise in his-her work etc.  Elephant reflects kingdom, wealth, jewelry, land, grandeur etc. The lion reflects courage, authority, position etc. Persons born in the Gaj Kesari Yog are said to be sharp minded, active, clever etc and many in life reach higher positions.

Generally, the status of planets, astrological conditions in the Kendra Houses are considered very effective, then the Trikona Houses which are the 1st, 5th, and the 9th. However, each birth chart is different and unique.

Lord Ram is said to have had the Gaj Kesari Yog. Lord Ram had the Jupiter and the moon sitting in the 1st House in the Janam Kundli, and had the Cancer ascendant.

A Mantra for Lord Jupiter is                           Om Gun Guruvey Namah

                                                                         गुं गुरवे नम:           

A Mantra for Lord Chandra, the moon is       Om Chandraya Namah

                                                                        ॐ चन्द्राय नमः
