“Ruchaka” means very large, agreeable, pleasing, sharp, acid, as well as indicating any object that brings good luck. The root “rucha” means bright, radiant. Natives with this yoga are sharp, as per Mars’ nature, but their martial energies are generally focused towards some good, unless Mars itself is afflicted, in which case failings may come from this yoga such as anger and the potential towards violence. Ruchaka Yoga natives are always very energetic and “radiant” with what they do. The Ruchaka Yoga native’s goals and expectations are contingent upon the ideas and concepts they hold in their minds. Those things not in harmony with their mental concepts are seen as challenges and obstacles to overcome, and there is great power and knowledge on how to overcome them. This yoga very much emphasizes the use of the will to give success and make what one thinks is right come about, whether through physical, practical or occult means. In horoscopes with indications for spiritual practices, the native learns how any attachment to their mental concepts and ideas has an effect on their mental peace and spiritual mindedness. They then learn how to free their minds from all limiting concepts and discover what IS.
