A planet, not including the Moon, Rahu or Ketu, in the 12th from the Sun.
“One born with Vosi Yoga will be skillful, charitable, of excellent speech, looking towards the sides, employed, equal to a king, and genuine. He is endowed with fame, learning, strength, and a good memory. He will have a strong physique around the waist. Malefics forming this yoga will give contrary effects.”
Planets forming Vosi Yoga rise before the Sun; therefore, these planets are those with which the native initiates the experiences in their life. These are potentially the most activating and initializing planets in the horoscope. The traits of these planets will be very noticeable in the native upon first impression.
Generally benefics forming Vosi Yoga are favored. Classical texts give very different results to benefics vs. malefics forming Vosi Yoga:
“One born in a Suvosi Yoga (Vosi Yoga formed by benefics) will be liberal, blessed with all kinds of comforts, wealth, and happiness, a favorite of the sovereign, liked by all, exceedingly prosperous, and famous.”
Benefics forming Vosi Yoga indicate that the native initiates their life in a well to do fashion, which includes kindness, fairness, balance, etc. The first impression of the native will be a good one in accordance with the nature of the benefic. Benefics forming Vosi Yoga, which are debilitated in the rasi or the navamsa, will, however, indicate problematic and imbalanced character qualities in accordance with the nature of the benefic, which reduce the native’s capacity to initiate the things they want in their lives. Any other yogas these debilitated planets are taking part in will, however, still become more powerful due to their taking part in the Solar Yoga.
“One born in an Asubhavosi Yoga (Vosi Yoga formed by malefics) will be deceitful, sinful, laborious, disabled, defective limbed, always feeling sleepy, lazy and weary. A friend of the wicked, and of unrighteous conduct, he will abuse others. He will, however, quote sastras and scriptures.”
Malefics forming Vosi Yoga indicate that the native initiates their life in a more difficult fashion, which includes reckless or imbalanced behaviors, willfulness, selfishness, competitiveness, etc. The first impression of the native will reveal some difficult aspects of their personality in accordance with the nature of the malefic. Malefics forming Vosi Yoga indicate greater hardships in initiating life’s experiences than do benefics, however, they also become more productive, so any other good yogas they are forming become more powerful and success producing.
Saravali gives different results for the different planets that may be forming Vosi Yoga, but the important point is that the qualities of the planets forming Vosi Yoga become significant and active:
Jupiter”The native will possess courage, strength and wisdom. He will keep his word.”
Jupiter forming Vosi Yoga by being in the 12th from the Sun indicates that the native approaches things with wisdom, faith and understanding. Tolerance, thoughtfulness, openness, faith and goodwill are noticeable upon first impression.
Saturn”The native will be a businessman, wicked, will steal others’ money, will hate elders and will be the husband of a pious lady.”
Saturn forming Vosi Yoga by being in the 12th from the Sun indicates that the native approaches life seriously, and with caution, determination or calculation. Seriousness, coldness, reserve, concern and caution are noticeable upon first impression.
