respectively, from the Ascendant or Chandra, this Gaj kesari Yoga is created. If

As an example, If Chandra is in the Taurus and the Jupiter is in Leo which is the
fourth house from the Taurus then Gaj kesari yoga is created. Jupiter must be in

Gaj kesari yoga is determined by the location of Jupiter from the Moon. Gaj kesari
yoga if formed stays in action around 2 -3 days. That means the people born during
this time will hold the Gaj kesari yoga in the horoscope. To make simpler the fact,

6th and 8th house from each other. In this condition if one symbol of the Venus
is in Kendra and other one is ion the evil’s house, the Gaj kesari yoga may be called
off and became inauspicious.
