Good Raj Yoga, Bad Avasthas
As Ta lagna, I have Sun combusting Saturn and Mercury in 7th House. So 2nd, 4th, 5th, 9th and 10th lords are conjunct which creates a Raj Yoga of the Kendra-Kona variety
From the Avasthas, it would make me focus on the wrong incompatible Kingdom and make me compensate by working on the things wrong for my soul
Is the result of the Raj Yoga the outcome of this compensatory work? i.e. good external results but burnt out and unhappy subjective life experience?
Yes, the yoga gives the effects, the avastha gives the happiness. its common for yogas to have some difficult avasthas, otherwise all it would take is succes and fame to make us happy, h aha.
Yes, I dont th ink we can do very good astrology without the Avasthas.
