Vimala Yoga

Vimala yoga is a type of Vipreeta Raja Yoga and it arises when the lord of the 6th, or 8th, or 12th house occupies the 6th or 8th house. It also arises when the lord of any dushamstahana is in the 12th house. The word “Vipreet” means “opposite” hence this yoga is formed in seemingly opposite or unusual conditions in a horoscope. Vimala yoga makes a person independent, and noble character, wealthy, happy, and a frugal/prudent spender.

The natives of Vimala yoga will have the following qualities:
– Frugality
– Happiness and Independence
– Nobility
– gains through risky and adverse-looking situations.

For Vimala yoga to be formed, the following conditions have to be satisfied:
– The lord of the 6th, or 8th, or 12th house should be in the 6th or 8th house.
– The lord of the twelfth house should be benefic.
– The overall horoscope should be benefic and strong.

The effects of this yoga will be reduced if any benefic planet or trine house lord is placed with Jupiter in the 12th house.

Comment and Details
Whether the 12th house lord being placed in the 12th house causes this yoga is a topic for debate. But it is believed by some that if the 12 house lord is in his own house, then it will cause a highly benefic yoga just as if any natural malefic is placed in this malefic house (12th).
Usually, a planet that is placed in its own sign tends to give more good results for natural malefic planets like Saturn, Mars, Rahu, or Ketu.
