What is Saraswati Yoga in kundali as per Vedic Astrology
Saraswati Yoga is described or introduced by the Astrological Classic Phaladeepika Written by Sage Mantreswar. It is written that When Jupiter, Mercury and Venus are placed in a kendra(Ascendant, 4th house, 7th house, 10th house) or Trikona(5th and 9th house) or in Second House and Jupiter is strongly placed in own house or in a friendly sign or in a exaltion sign Saraswati Yoga is created in a Horoscope. So Mercury, jupiter and Venus these three natural benefic planets should be placed either in Lagna or in 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 9th or 10th house from Ascendant and Jupiter must be strong either by exaltation or by own sign or by vargottama. Results of this Yoga is so fantastic that it is one of my personal favorite Planetary Combination.
The individual with Saraswati Yoga in kundli will be highly Intelligent. He will be very competent in composing prose, drama, poetry and will be learned in Alankar Shastra and Mathematics. He will be skilled in poetry, in narrative composition and in the exposition of sacred texts’. His fame will spread all over the world. He will be extremely wealthy and will be blessed with wife and children.
Saraswati is the goddess of knowledge, education, the power of speech, music and the arts and wisdom. So as the name indicates this Yoga is inclined towards Knowledge, Wisdom, Learning , Arts and Music. In this Yoga Jupiter will give Wisdom, Mercury will give quick learning ability and artistic proficiency and Venus will give interest in arts and Music.
The 1st, 4th, 7th and 10th house is known as Kendra house. These are like pillers of the Horoscope. They are also known as Vishnu sthana. The 5th and 9th is known as Trikona and Laxmi Sthana. When all the natural Benefics Occupy either the Kendra or the Trikona house, it automatically increases the strength of the Horoscope to a great extent. Moreover if you notice carefully, 4th house is the house of education, 5th is the house of intellect, 7th is also a secondary house of education and career, 9th is the house of wisdom and higher learning, 10th is the house of career. So the emphasis is on Education, learning and career. When the most beneficial planets of the Zodiac will influence these houses strongly, the person will get the blessing of goddess Saraswati and Laxmi both.
If the Yoga occurs from Ascendant or lagna it is of normal Strength but if it occurs from Both Lagna and Rashi, it will be very Strong. If Saraswati Yoga occurs in other important Divisional Chart Like Navamsa or Dasamsa also , it can take the individual to dizzy height.

- The dasha of the Planets are Very important. Remember Yogas show a certain karmic pattern but the result will be delivered in particular Dasha. So the native should get the Dashas in correct time of his or her life.
- The planets should not be afflicted by malefics like Rahu/Ketu. It will Reduce the strength of the Yoga to a great extent.
- If the Planets are involved in some other high quality Yoga, the result or magnitude of the benefits of Saraswati Yoga will increase.
- If this Yoga occurs from Lagna as well from Moon also, this will make the yoga a real deal.
Mere presence of a Yoga in a Kundli is not of any good effect. If it is really strong, it will be able to deliver good result.
