The third lunar eclipse of the year on 5 July will witness the Gaja Kesari Yoga. Chandra (the moon) and Guru will be in Sagittarius during this time. The combination of the two grahas — not strictly in the sense of planets as known in astronomy — in one zodiac makes this yoga. A yoga in astrology is an occasion when a certain set of factors coincide. The Gaja Kesari Yoga refers to the coming together of aspects of a Gaja (elephant) and those of a kesari (lion). The Gaja Kesari Yoga, one of the auspicious yogas in Vedic astrology, is formed in the birth chart of a person when Jupiter is at the kendra (centre). That is, it has to be in the lagna (ascendant), fourth, seventh and tenth house from the moon.
Jupiter is the kāraka graha (doer, maker or actor) for wealth, knowledge, fame, luck and children. Chandra is the kāraka graha for heart, softness, mobility, happiness and prosperity.
The ascendant at the centre of the chart also can form the Gaja Kesari Yoga. This yoga (occasion when things come together) is auspicious when formed in Kendra houses.
A Gaja Kesari Yoga during the lunar eclipse can open avenues of fortune of several zodiac signs, particularly moon signs or rashi. Natives of Gemini, Cancer, Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn will get more benefits from the Gaja Kesari Yoga on lunar eclipse.
Aries: Your health will improve with the Gaja Kesari Yoga being created during the lunar eclipse. You will be right late in the morning, but you will definitely get the fruits of your hard work. The period of lunar eclipse with Gaja Kesari Yoga is going to be auspicious for you.
Taurus: Lunar eclipse had to affect your job and business matters too, but due to Gaja Kesari Yoga, you will get its benefits. However, to get the money, a lot of hard work will be required.
Gemini: Long hanging tasks will be completed. Health-related problems will be solved. Any previous investment made in the property will now start to benefit. We will start working wisely in terms of money. Getting into trouble with colleagues will increase difficulties.
Cancer: Gaja Kesari Yoga is going to benefit you in career-related matters. Income will increase. Those who work can expect a reasonable profit. There can be big changes in the lives of people going through bad times.
Leo: It is better to keep some distance from property-related matters, investment or legal matters. This time is not good for you at all. In the case of jobs and business, everything will go on as before. Gaja Kesari Yoga will increase respect.
Virgo: You will have less benefit from the Gaja Kesari Yoga. There may be problems in property matters. You will be unable to repay the loan or loan of the bank. This eclipse is bringing many problems for you. When spending, keep in mind the budget of the house.
Libra: Your enemies and opponents will stay subdued. Work that had been stalled earlier will resume due to the Gaja Kesari Yoga during this eclipse. With the effect of this eclipse, you will see success in your career.
Scorpio: The yoga will help you make strong decisions. Your strategies will bring long-term benefits. There will be prosperity at home and you will spend some quality time with your partner.
Sagittarius: It’s time for marriage. The wish of someone entering your life will come true. However, one has to wait a little longer to initiate the auspicious task. Avoid working on projects affected by Mangal (Mars).
Capricorn: You will make money spontaneously. You can get promotion in job and business. There will be no better opportunity to correct old mistakes again than now. This eclipse is going to be very good for you.
Aquarius: If you want to bring some kind of change in your life and career, this eclipse is going to bring many positive results for you.
