GURU CHANDAL YOGA-WHY IT IS GOOD
“Sir my child has a Guru Chandal Yoga” said a concerned father.
“Good for him.” I chuckled.
“What are you saying sir…it is very bad. An astrologer told me to get a puja done….”
“Don’t…you would ruin your boy’s chances. This is a good yoga to have…!”
I have discussed this yoga hundreds of times. Almost every time the client was in a state of panic regarding the “bad effects” of the feared “Chandal Yoga”. But I was delighted to see this as this happens to be one of my favorite yogas.
For the uninitiated, this yoga happens with Rahu and Jupiter are in conjunction. (Some people also include Ketu + Guru in definition of Chandal Yoga but I don’t think that Ketu is wicked enough to cause a Chandal yoga, in fact Ketu is more saintly than Jupiter).
Hence the real Chandal Yoga happens when Guru sits with the Wicked Rahu.
JUPITER + RAHU = GURU + CHANDAL
Jupiter is the Guru: The teacher, the philosopher, the guide
Rahu is the feared Chandal: The outcast, the lowly, the bad guy, the corruptor
I have written a lot about Rahu and he is my favorite planet. I mean adore Ketu which is the most spiritual planet, I love and admire Saturn the most for his heroism and justice.
But Rahu, well Rahu is FUN…!
Which self-respecting movie buff doesn’t like Joker more than batman? It is Joker who provides all the fun scenes.
Good guys can be a little boring actually. Rahu is pure corruption (see the irony of these two words coming together)
When they say “Power Corrupts” they are actually talking about RAHU.
HERE IS A BIG SECRET ABOUT RAHU: HE IS POWER + CORRUPTION
Remember the Mantra:
“RAHU EMPOWERS AND CORRUPTS”
Repeat after me
“RAHU EMPOWERS AND CORRUPTS”
Good now let’s see some examples
RAHU + Sun = Boosted and Corrupted Ego
RAHU+ Venus = Boosted and Corrupted Sexuality
RAHU+ Moon = Boosted and Corrupted Emotions
And so on…
Hence: The code for Chandal Yoga is:
Rahu + Jupiter = Boosted and Corrupted PHILOSOPHY
WHY THIS WAS BAD: In the ancient times this was considered a really bad yoga as these people would OPPOSE THE DIVINE SYSTEM of things, the Sages, the Gurus, the laws and the scriptures. In short they would oppose the entire Divine Vedic system which was based on true laws of nature. Hence this was considered a very bad yoga. Worse than Rahu Moon or any other yoga.
WHY IT IS GOOD TODAY:
For starters, in terms of luck, this was always good, as Guru is the only planet that reduces the harshness of Rahu and helps overcome the damage done by the aspects and placement of Rahu. But there is a reason bigger reason I consider it a really good yoga.
Rule #1 of Astrology is, Desh Kala Paristhiti (Place, time, and conditions). This means that you have to look at every yoga through the lens of current place, time, and conditions.
So, in today’s times, Guru Chandal Yoga is one of the BEST things to have in the chart. BECAUSE….the freaking SYSTEM IS CORRUPT
When the Gurus are trying to misguide the people, when laws are foolish, corporate, government and media are mind controlling people …you NEED the Guru-Chandal people to fight this system. They are the spiritual rebels who would take this fight forward and would god willing take the corrupt system down some day.
Think of these guys as the Humans fighting the Machines in the Matrix.
Remember RAHU is the Rebel…When the system is corrupt, the Rebel becomes the HERO.
Guru Chandal Yoga, gives us the philosophical hero who would fight the system and some day would save the world. In world full of mindless puppets being manipulated by the powers that be, Guru-Chandal yoga guys are the ones who are the last front of resistance in the battle against the enslavement of human spirit. Be thankful for them.
And be happy if you have it, I congratulate you.
