Kartari means scissors, and papa means sin. This is also called hemmed in.This group of yogas 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. The malefic planets are Saturn, Mars, Rahu, Ketu and Sun.The benefic planets are Jupiter, Venus, and Mercury.
THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF KARTARI YOGAS :
1) PAAP KARTARI YOGA : It occurs when malefics enclose a planet or a house.
For example :
a) Venus is in Taurus, Saturn (a malefic) in Aries and Mars (a malefic) in Gemini. Two malefics enclose Venus. Therefore, Venus will not be able to function optimally.
b) Mars is in the fourth house, the fifth house is empty and Saturn is in the sixth house. This can have awkward consequences for the children, because two malefics enclose the fifth house. In this case, the fifth house encounters a papa kartari yoga.
2) SHUBH KARTARI YOGA : It occurs when benefics enclose of a planet or a house .
For example :
a) If Venus is in Taurus, Jupiter (a benefic) in Aries, and the Moon (a benefic) in Gemini, then Venus will function exceptionally well. This is shubha kartari yoga.
b) Venus is in the fourth house and Jupiter in the sixth house, everything pertaining to the fifth house will be beneficially influenced. In this situation, the fifth house is strengthened by the occurrence of a shubka kartari yoga.
NOTE ***** RAHU & KETU ALTHOUGHT MELEFICS DO NOT FORM PAAP KARTARI YOGA
