What is Kartari Yoga Dr. Shanker Adawal (Jyotishaacharya, PHD, MBA) Kartari means scissors, so this group of yoga can be called Scissors yoga as well. This group of yoga is caused by planets being placed around a certain house and/or planet. The most generally occurring scissors yoga is when two benefics or malefics enclose a planet or a house. In Indian astrology, the term enclosed is used for containment in a negative sense, and also for containment with positive consequences. Enclosure by malefics of a planet/ a house is called Paapkartari yoga and enclosure by benefics of a planet or a house Shubhakartari yoga. Paap means “sin”. This is also called “hemmed in”; whereas Shubha means auspicious. Here the benefic planets surround a house. The malefic planets are Mars, Saturn, Sun, Rahu & Ketu, while the benefic planets are Jupiter, Venus, and Mercury. There must be a malefic/ benefic in both the house before, and after (surrounding) the house/ planet hemmed in. These yoga are akin to Durdhara yoga for Moon or the Ubhayachari Yoga for Sun in nature. According to some astrologers, only the pure planets can form these scissors yoga, but not Rahu and Ketu. A planet/ house in Paapkartari becomes weak & loses its significations, does not prosper and produce evil results, whereas a planet/ house in Subhakartari gets strengthened, and function exceptionally well regarding its significations. When the first house is enclosed, it is of particular importance as it provides basic protection & welfare to the native. One could say that the first house is the horoscope in miniature. In Gandhi’s horoscope (chart No. 18), we can see that the first house is enclosed by the Sun (malefic in the twelfth house) and Saturn (malefic in the second house). This is a Paapkartari yoga, which caused a certain number of problems in his life. The native had his lagna hemmed between malefics Ketu & Mars causing Paapkartari yoga. The Moon too is surrounded by two malefics Sun & Saturn causing a malefic Durdhara or another Paapkartari yoga. The native suffered from an incurable disease, which eventually proved fatal. In order to overcome these double afflictions, Lagnesh should have been extra strong and under benefic influence. But Lagnesh Venus is closely conjunct with 12 th lord Mercury in Rahu-Ketu axis and aspected by Saturn. In Navamsha, Lagnesh was in 8th house with 6th lord Sun in debility.
