In Vedic astrology Jwalamukhi yoga is considered destructive, very unlucky and inauspicious yoga (dosha) for an important event to start. If a person starts his work during this yoga, it is believed that it will not be completed or he/she may have to face many obstacles to complete the work. One should not start any auspicious work or journey or construction of a new building, during this period. If a child is born during Jwalamukhi yoga, it is not considered good for his/her health. But other auspicious combinations present in the horoscope of the child will nullify the bad effects of this Yoga. The final judgement should be given only after carefully reading and analyzing all the factors present in the horoscope. One should not be afraid of this yoga without knowing it properly.
For precautionary measures all auspicious events should be avoided in Jwalamukhi Yoga, if possible. This period can be used to defeat one’s enemies or start war as it is considered auspicious for destructive purposes only.
Jwalamukhi yoga is created due to the combination of a specific constellation (Nakshatra)and a specific date(Tithi) of a lunar month( Chandra mas). Jwalamukhi Yoga is formed by the following five specific combinations of a Tithi and a Nakshatra due to their mutual presence on the same day:
1) Pratipada Tithi(1st day) of a lunar month falls on the day of presence of Mool Nakshatra.
2) Panchami Tithi (5th day) of a lunar month falls on the day of Bharani Nakshatra
3) Ashtami Tithi( 8th day) of a lunar month falls on the day of Krittika Nakshatra
4) Navami Tithi ( 9th day) of a lunar month falls on the day of Rohini Nakshatra
Note: Jwalamukhi yoga is believed to be formed for two consecutive days, if both Krittika and Rohini Nakshatra (3rd and 4th constellations) fall on Ashtami (8th) and Navami Tithi (9th day) respectively of a lunar month (Chandra maas) in Indian Vedic Astrology.
5) Dashami Tithi (10th day) of a lunar month falls on the Ashlesha Nakshatra.
