This just goes on to show the power of Astrology Yogas in our horoscope and their influence on our lives. If you are not aware of the different Astrology Yogas that can impact our lives in a major way, this article is for you. Here we reveal to you about the various Astrology Yogas and how they can hold sway over your life.

What is a Yoga?

According to Vedic astrology, Yoga refers to specific planetary combinations present in an individual’s horoscope that can have significant influence on the native’s life. Depending on the Yoga, this influence can be beneficial or malefic for the individual. When it is an auspicious Yoga, it can strengthen the individual’s horoscope and improve the chances of enjoying peace, happiness, and success in life. In the case of an unfavourable Yoga, it can cause adversity to seep into the individual’s life and make him/her suffer. The presence or absence of Yoga can considerably change the meaning and impact of the different planets and their positions in an individual’s horoscope.
