When Moon is in the 12th, 6th or 8th from Jupiter in the birth chart it causes Sakata Yoga. This is not an auspicious yoga. There are different opinion by different scholars on Sakata Yoga but the general opinion that is universally agreed is that Moon when occupying the three dusthanas (evil houses) from Jupiter is not good and the native will face many hindrances in relation to finances. He will be disrespected by people around him and will face many miseries and injustice in his life. As Jupiter is the karka for fortune and wealth and moon the representative of the mind, the native will lose money because of his generosity and dependence on others. He will face many hardships in life and see major ups and downs in his life. The native will suffer from losses due to cheating, over dependence and over confidence on others.
Some astrologers suggest that Sakata yoga will not push the native towards poverty but the extent of miseries will be very limited, depending upon of course on the influence of malefic in the horoscope. Dr. Raman the notes astrologer has written that the native born in Sakata Yoga has his fortune obstructed now and then. The period of difficulty and hardship will be felt when they transit malefic signs or Rasis, that is 6th, 8th and 12th from Jupiter, the effect of Sakata will be there.
