Ruchaka Yoga is one of the Pancha MahaPurusha yogas. It occurs when Mars meets 2 conditions

  1. It occupies its own signs of Aries or Scorpio or its exaltation sign of Capricorn
  2. It is in a Kendra from Lagna

How common is Ruchaka Yoga

The probability of the 1st rule is 3/12. And that of the 2nd is 4/12. So the combined probability comes to 1/12. So one in twelve people will have this yoga…about 8%. I would rate this a common yoga.

It would be at its most powerful when it happens in Makara Lagna, with Mars exalted there. The chances of this would be in 144.

Famous people with Ruchaka Yoga

Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India has a very strong Ruchaka Yoga in his Ascendant (Lagna).

Adolf Hitler had a strong Ruchaka Yoga in his 7th house, which is also called the house of war !

Queen Elizabeth II has the strongest possible Ruchaka Yoga in her Capricorn Ascendant. Is this what pushed her uncle to abdicate and her dad become the King…so that she could become the Queen one day ? ;-)
