Yogi Avayogi technique
: Among the most brilliant extensions and applications of the principles of classical jyotish were those researched and published by Seshadri Iyer of Bangalore,India. Iyer’s work has been extensively taught in the West by Hart deFouw who hasverified the validity of these principles through years of applying them in his ownpractice. After studying these principles, I too, have used them with my clients andhave come to rely on their validity and accuracy.Among many wide-ranging and useful topics, Iyer put forward a methodology forexamining prosperity in a chart that is quick and easy to pinpoint and evaluate. Althoughembedded in a larger context that requires more study and experience, the pointsdetailed below should give an astrologer good insight into the prosperity promised in achart and when the promised prosperity may be more likely to deliver the goods.Because these principles are taken from a more holistic and complex context, however,there may be instances when the simple applications described below do not fully reflectthe true experience. Therefore please enjoy applying these techniques with theknowledge that it is not yet the total story.
Calculation of the Yogi Point
: Iyer was inspired by some Nadi methods that wereavailable to him to define and calculate specific planetary yogas that were correlatedwith prosperity. The basis of these yogas involved identifying the “yogi point”. Althoughthe calculation of this point is available in many computer programs, it is important thatevery jyotishi understands the basis for the computer calculation and is capable of calculating it independently. To find this point one simply adds (for a particular chart)the longitude of the Sun, the Moon and a constant of 93 degrees 20 minutes. Theresultant sum will be the longitude known as the yogi point. It has been my experiencethat many aspiring students need practice at calculations, and I, therefore, will providean example in great detail, including how one reduces the resulting sums to find thecorrect longitudes. (For those who find these operations simple and obvious, this sectioncan be quickly skimmed.) Suppose in a given chart, the Sun is at 14 degrees 22 minutesof Pisces and the Moon is at 5 degrees and 45 minutes of Gemini. One could proceedwith the calculation in two different ways. My preferred method is the Indian way of expressing the longitude of the Sun as 11 signs 14 degrees 22 minutes (11 signs havebeen completed when a planet is placed in Pisces and the Sun in this case is 14 degrees22 minutes into the sign of Pisces.) This can be a point of confusion as there will besome that will think of Pisces as the 12
sign but in fact, only 11 signs have actuallybeen completed). The longitude of the Moon placed in Gemini can be expressed as 2signs 5 degrees and 45 minutes (here again, placement in Gemini means 2 signs arecompleted plus the 5 degrees and 45 minutes into Gemini that the Moon has traversed).To this one must also add the constant of 93 degrees 20 minutes which in this way of handling the calculation is most easily expressed as 3 signs (30 degrees x 3 = 90degrees) 3 degrees and 20 minutes. Adding these three longitudes we arrive at 16 signs22 degrees and 87 minutes.11s 14 degrees 22 minutes02s 05 degrees 45 minutes03s 03 degrees 20 minutes16 s 22 degrees 87 minutesExpunging 60 minutes from the last column and adding it to the degree column as onedegree (60 minutes = one degree) , we get 16 signs 23 degrees and 27 minutes.

Whenever the sign portion of the answer exceeds 12, we subtract 12 (360 degrees) andour final figure is 4 signs 23 degrees and 27 minutes.16s 22 degrees 87 minutes+1 degree -60 minutes16 s 23 degrees 27 minutes-12s04s 23 degrees 27 minutes = Leo 23 degrees 27 minutesThis places the yogi point in the sign of Leo at 23 degrees and 27 minutes. An alternatemethod is to convert everything to degrees with 0 degrees of Aries as the starting pointand add the longitudes directly, divide the sum by 30 degrees and arrive at the sameanswer.
Calculation of the Avayogi Point
: As relative creation exists in duality, the existenceof the yogi point implies that an opposite energy must exist as well. Iyer called this theavayogi point and this calculation does not seem to be generally available in computerprograms. It is a simple operation of adding 6 signs 6 degrees and 40 minutes to theyogi point. For the above example, the avayogi point would be calculated by adding 4signs 23 degrees and 27 minutes to the constant of 6 signs 6 degrees and 40 minutes.04s 23 degrees 27 minutes06s 06 degrees 40 minutes10s 29 degrees 67 minutesThe resultant sum is 10 signs 29 degrees and 67 minutes which must be reduced byexpunging 60 minutes from the minutes column leaving 7 minutes and then expunging30 degrees from the degree column (29 degrees plus the 1 degree derived fromexpunging 60 minutes from the 67 minute total) leaving 0 degrees and a total of 11signs (10 signs plus the extra sign derived from expunging 30 degrees). This gives anavayogi point located in Pisces at 0 degrees 7 minutes.10s 29 degrees 67 minutes+1 degree -60 minutes10s 30 degrees 07 minutes+1s -30 degrees 07 minutes11s 0 degrees 07 minutes = Pisces, 0 degrees 07minutes
Finding the Yogi, Duplicate Yogi and Avayogi:
Having the yogi and avayogi pointsavailable, the method for finding the yogi, duplicate yogi and avayogi is as follows: Theyogi will be the ruler of the nakshatra in which the yogi point is placed. The duplicateyogi will be the ruler of the sign in which the yogi point is placed. The avayogi will be theruler of the nakshatra in which the avayogi point is placed. All of these are based on
Yogi Avayogi technique.docx 3 of 6
rulerships according to the vimshottari dasha system only. For the example above, theyogi point falls in the sign of Leo at 23 degrees 27 minutes putting it into the nakshatraof Purva Phalguni ruled by Venus. Therefore, Venus is the yogi of the chart. The Sunwould be the duplicate yogi as it is the ruler of the sign in which the yogi point is placed.Jupiter is the ruler of Purva Bhadrapada which spans from 20 degrees of Aquariusthrough 3 degrees 20 of Pisces. The avayogi point is located at 0 degrees 07 minutes of Pisces making Jupiter the avayogi of the chart. In five instances, the duplicate yogi andthe avayogi are the same planet. This fact will color some of the principles detailedbelow. In two instances, the yogi and the duplicate yogi are the same planet. A shortcutmethod of finding the avayogi once you know the yogi is by counting 6 inclusively fromthe yogi planet in vimshottari dasha sequence order. For the above example, Venuswould be the starting point as the yogi and counting inclusively in the order of Venus,Sun, Moon, Mars, Rahu and Jupiter, you would arrive at Jupiter as sixth from Venus.
Trinal nakshatras of the yogi and avayogi nakshatra
: In this methodology, it isalso important to be aware that each planet in the vimshottari dasha scheme rules threenakshatras. For a given chart, the nakshatra containing the actual yogi or avayogi pointis the most important. However, results can also be seen when considering the twoother trinal nakshatras for each of the respective points. In the example above, thenakshatras of Bharani and Purvashadra can also be indicative of prosperity and thenakshatras of Purnavasu and Vishaka can be obstructive in this regard.
Principles of Prosperity:
Once these calculations have been accomplished, theintriguing process of applying these points to a given chart can begin. Each principle willbe stated below with an illustration so that the methodology is clear. There will not bean attempt at any further analysis of the chart other than to illustrate the principle andcomment where necessary on the life experience with respect to prosperity. As with anyother set of jyotish principles, good common astrological sense needs to be applied.There is a vast difference between a yogi planet that is in its own sign, vargottama, in agood house and unafflicted and one that is debilitated, in dusthana, combust andafflicted. Another factor to be aware of is that it is often the tendency when introducedto a new principle to immediately examine charts for example in this case, of wealthyindividuals and see if these principles apply. A true test of the validity of these principleswould be to examine charts where these combinations exist and see if they manifest inprosperity or poverty; however, one should note that there are many significations thatcan support prosperity and it does not necessarily follow that all people who have wealthwill have these particular indicators. Still, it SHOULD be the case that people with thecombinations listed below manifest the indicated results in a comfortable majority of thecases (although this is subject to the greater context in which this work is embeddedwhich will be unfolded in future writings.)Finally, it is important to remember that the yogi and avayogi will give results according totheir condition or strength. Jyotishis evaluate strength in different ways and in accordancewith their own experience and training. It is not my purpose to elaborate on this topic in thecontext of this paper but it is important to bear in mind that for maximum expression of theprosperity indicators, the yogi and duplicate yogi should be strong and well located.Likewise, for maximum expression of lack of prosperity, the avayogi should be strong andwell placed. In this system, the weaker the avayogi, the less it will obstruct prosperity.
The charts of private parties listed below have some or all of the birth detailswithheld to maintain confidentiality.
Principle 1
If the ascending degree of the horoscope is placed in the nakshatraof the yogi point, the person will be predisposed towards material prosperity.This will be all the more marked if the yogi is strong and favorably placed forgood results.
