Panch Mahapurusha Yoga is an important combination in Vedic astrology.
This Yoga (combination) is formed due to specific positions of planets either in exalted or in its own signs. This is formed by five different planets with combination of certain rashis or zodiac signs and four bhavas (or houses from ascendant) in kendra(quadrant).
This Yoga is created by any of these five different planets Visa Viz: Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus or Saturn. Each planet is having different characteristics and they form a different type of Panchamahapurusha. Therefore, one of the reasons why it is Pancha-Mahapurusha yoga is that these five planets form the yoga. Again, each of these Pancha-Mahapurusha yoga formed by the 5 planets are called differently.
- Ruchaka Yoga (Mars): Ruchaka yoga is formed when a strong Mars is posited in one of the four houses,1st, 4th, 7th or 10th house(quadrant) from ascendant, in its own sign (Aries or Scorpio) or in exalted sign (Capricorn), in an individual native’s astrological chart. The native will be wealthy, very famous, intelligent, full of enthusiasm and energy. A person born with Ruchaka Yoga will have graceful appearance, very attractive physique and impressive personality and he will be long lived.

The native will be tall, attractive, learned, intelligent, intellectual, wealthy, good orator, sharp-witted, helpful, majestic and very famous with a successful career, at a very early age.

The native will have trouble with teeth, sometimes may be broken at an early age, if afflicted by malefic planets. A woman having Hamsa Yoga with non-afflicted and strong Jupiter, will be lucky for her husband or married life, as Jupiter represents husband in a woman’s birth chart, for example Madhuri Dikshit.

The native will be in contact with many women, in his life but this does not mean his character is questionable. If this combination (yoga) is afflicted by malefic planets, then the native will have bad or unpredictable character. A native having Malavya Yoga, with strong Venus in thier birth chart will get a very loving and supporting spouse, as Venus represents marital bliss, in a person’s birth chart.
Example: Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru, John F Kennedy, Mahatma Gandhi.
- Shasha Yoga (Saturn): Saturn represents sorrow, obstacles and adversity.

The native will rise to a great height but the progress will be very slow and the life will not be without troubles. A person having Shasha Yoga with strong Saturn in a native’s birth chart, being a deep thinker would positively implement the ideas to bring them to reality and successfully start a new venture. The native will be tall, good looking with attractive physique and will have many servants, factories and lead a prosperous and wealthy life.
