Extreme poverty or ‘Daridra Yoga’ is considered inauspicious among the different yogas according to Vedic astrology. Vedic astrologers believe that the formation of yoga in a horoscope affects the business, job, and financial prosperity of a native. This yoga creates an adverse effect on the native’s life.


According to the Vedic astrology, if the lord of the tenth house in a horoscope of a native is situated in the 6th, 8th or 12th house, the ‘Daridra Yoga’ forms. It can have a very inauspicious effect on the native’s business and profession. Some Vedic astrologers believe that the financial condition of the natives who come under the strong influence of ‘Daridra Yoga’ remains poor throughout their life and such natives have to live by doing tremendous physical work.

At the same time, some other Vedic astrologers believe that the natives who come under the strong influence of ‘Daridra Yoga’ earn money through immoral and illegal activities. As a result of this, the natives get no respect from society and such natives may hurt others for their own benefit. They do not hesitate to hurt others at all.

The native, born in ‘Daridra Yoga’ becomes a person of tough-living, unpleasant-speaking, bitter-speaking, addictive, low-thinking, low-earner and a pamper. During this yoga, sometimes there is a disorder in the native’s organs. The native becomes contradictory, ungrateful, envious with people who are wealthy and becomes a disturbing element for other’s work.
