Guru Chandal Yoga

Jupiter as a Guru and Rahu & Ketu as a Chandal conjunction is known as Guru Chandal Yoga. However, as per astrologers this also happens when these aspect each other.

Jupiter is planet of wisdom, spirituality, growth, knowledge, wealth and religious beliefs. Rahu & Ketu are planets of illusion (moh-maya), detachment, strong materialistic desire, ambition to achieve more but happiness. Rahu & Ketu do not have a nature of its own. It takes on the qualities of the planet it is with or the sign it occupies and gives the results accordingly. However, these may be charismatic planets too.

In this conjunction Rahu Ketu affects the Jupiter higher values and what comes out is quite an explosive personality breaking the social norms and making his own. A person who largely disregards the proven culture, value, rules, and regulations. It promotes immoral and unethical behavior.

Imagine this person in his early age eating very fast in an unpleasant way of leaving half the food, wasting the food; or doing homework incomplete or not doing it, frequent absenteeism from studies, bunking the studies for a movie show, not going back straight to the house from school.

Or a person who does not want to get married formally prefers live-in relationship or some other kind of relationship to avoid any commitment; a person who questions the set conception such as who is God, what is religion, who said to do this, where it is written etc. This kind of mindset generally comes in such conjunction where person tries to break/manipulate/disregard the set culture and creates his own.

Jupiter transits a sign in one year. Similarly Rahu Ketu transits a sign in roughly 1 ½ years. This conjunction will take place every 7- 8 years and will last for around one year which means that all persons born during the year will have Guru Chandala yoga in the transit.
