Kemdrum Dosh

Kemdrum Yoga is one of the most important Yogas formed by Moon. According to Varahmihir, this Yoga is formed when one house in front and back from the Moon are vacant. In other words, the second and the twelfth house from the Moon should be vacant so that this Yoga can be formed. This Yoga is not as inauspicious as believed by the astrologers in the modern times. A person should not be afraid of this Yoga as it does not always give inauspicious results. It also provides power to a person to face all sorts of struggles in life so that he may excel and achieve success.

Moon is known to be the karak planet for the mind according to astrology. It is usually seen than a vacant mind thinks about a lot of useless things and makes a person restless. Kemdrum Yoga also gives such results.

It is also believed that a person born in Kemdrum yoga is unable to cherish his married life or children. Such a person usually stays away from home. He is able to provide happiness to his loved ones. Such a person talks unnecessarily.

Auspicious and Inauspicious results of Kemdrum Yoga
As mentioned earlier, a person born in this yoga faces poverty and troubles. He may face troubles related to his profession. The mind is usually restless and unsatisfied. The person is usually dependent on others. Such a person has a long life but faces troubles in his married life and from children.

There is a misconception about Kemdrum yoga that it provides a person with a troubled life. Hence, many astrologers believe this yoga to be inauspicious. This notion is not totally true. People born in Kemdrum yoga do well in their profession. They also receive respect and appreciation in their field of work. Usually, astrologers in modern times only talk about the inauspicious effects of this yoga. But, if they start talking about the auspicious results too, people would know that due to the presence of some yogas, Kemdrum yoga is converted into Raj yoga. Therefore, while analyzing a person’s kundali, it is important to notice the yogas which convert Kemdrum yoga.

A person is also free from the ill effects of this yoga if there is planet in the center house from the Moon.

According to some shastras, if there is a planet in the center, second, twelfth or ninth house from the Moon, Kemdrum yoga is destroyed. Kemdrum yoga is also destroyed if Moon is in the sign of an auspicious planet. Mercury, Jupiter and Venus are considered to be auspicious planets.
