Budhaditya Yoga

Budhaditya or Budhaaditya yog is formed when Sun and Mercury join together (i.e. are conjunct) in a house. This yog, in a person’s chart, is said to give lots of talent, success, honour among his/her peers and fame in society.

Mercury is the first planet in the Solar System and is very close to the Sun. As a result, it cannot be more than one sign away from the Sun in the rashi chart. This yog, therefore, appears in a lot of charts, but not all the charts can have the qualities mentioned in the first paragraph.

Any yog materializes only when all the planets involved in the yog are strong. They should be placed well in a chart and also should not themselves be badhakas for the chart, e.g. by being lord of dusthanas. Budhaditya yog is best formed when Sun and Mercury are in signs of Aries, Gemini, Leo and Virgo. The logic is simple – Aries is exaltation sign for Sun, Gemini and Leo are ruled by Mercury and Sun respectively and Virgo is exaltation/moolatrikona sign for Mercury. It is natural to think that these signs would be more conducive for this yog. In other signs, this yog would not fair that well and would give mixed results.

Ownership of Leo by Sun and Gemini and Virgo by Mercury make it a fairly tricky yog. Looking at all the lagnas, it is difficult to find a case both Mercury and Sun are rulers of good houses. Consider the case of Aries lagna where Mercury is a difficult planet as it rules house number three and six at the same time. Sun is an owner of a good house – house number five, but its association with Mercury may not be considered good for the person. 

This yog would give good results for Taurus, Leo, Libra and Aquarius lagna. For Sagittarius lagna, Sun and Mercury should be considered auspicious raj-yog karak. Based on Parashari principles, many astrologers might disagree with this observation. They could attribute Mercury to be afflicted because of ownership of two kendra houses at the same time. I am of the opinion that in this case Budhaditya yog still exists.

Apart from house ownership considerations, Mercury should not be extremely close to the Sun. It may be considered combust if it is within six degrees. During the recent transit of Mercury across the solar disc (November 8-9, 2006), Budhaditya yog would get canceled.

I do not know what happens to this yog if Mercury were to be retrograde when conjunct with Sun… I sincerely request an astrologer reading this to consider me a mere student and educate me and other readers of this blog on this matter.

Respected Sir,

I’m having BudhAditya yoga in my ascendant(capricorn), is it worth any good? I’m vastly interested in trying for Civil Services, will it be an obstacle with Sun being in enemy’s sign. I’m also having exalted Venus in my third house and Jupiter in fourth house and Moon in tenth house
possibly forming a GajaKesari yoga. Also Mars is in it’s own rasi in Lagna kundali. In Navamansha there’s Maha Parivartana Yoga taking place between Jupiter(2nd house) & Mars(1st house).

March 8th, 2010 at 10:09 am

Aiyu Says:
December 5th, 2007 at 11:46 am

Greetings, interesting article you have here, so allow me to add my two cents worth :)

I’ve always thought that Budhaditya Yoga would manifest itself effectively only if it’s also located in the 1st, 5th, 7th or 11th house, the logic being that the ‘self’ (1st house or aspect from 7th house) or ‘intelligence’ (5th house or aspect from 11th house) would have to be effected by this yoga.

Also, the aspects of the person’s life that shall improve would be related to the houses ruled by the planets involved in the yoga. It doesn’t guarantee all-round fame, talent and success. Any other obstruction to this yoga in the form of aspects from other planets or location of sun/mercury at the cusp of a house would effect its quality/strength.

sunny Says:

Divya Jyoti Says:
April 23rd, 2007 at 12:57 am

was just reading this article.
i dont know how old it is and how this entire blogging system works. but found a question asked here so thought id answer it-the buddha aditya yoga does NOT get cancelled due to the retrogade motion of mercury. in fact even in combustion it gives almost its full effect. mercury does NOT get spoilt by combustion since in transit it is stuck close to the sun at all times-never more than one house before or after. so it forms a special equation with the same. hope that asnwers your question…

Shubh Veer Says:
April 13th, 2007 at 10:51 pm

I know someone with sun conjunct mercury in ascendant sagittarius sign and he achieved fame, success and honour at the age of 27! He’s still very famous and benefits from societal honour. God Bless
