What is Budhaditya Yoga?
Budhaditya Yoga is a life-modifying and destiny-changing Yoga that is formed when Sun and Mercury come together in a birth horoscope.

Effects of Budhaditya Yoga:
Budhaditya yoga brings out all the positivity of one’s intellectual and physical energy to the fullest extent and allows use of these energies to be applied onto one’s observations, perceptions, thoughts, speech and actions in such manner that one attains various skills, some of them quite rare, a sharp intellect, finely discerning ability, good reputation, personal respect and also all material comforts and happiness.

How the Budhaditya yoga forms & which houses are involved in your birth chart in its formation:
In your horoscope, Sun-Mercury combination forms in Leo sign in your ascendant and in the 10th house of career from your Moon sign Scorpio.
Your Sun is quite strong, has good degree of directional strength [digbala – very active] but has less than average auspiciousness.
But Sun being the star lord of Ketu will always give very negative and obstructive results in all matters, in transit or during dasa periods.

Sun will give you too much ego and pride and all these will create many enemies and obstructions, delays and failures and therefore your progress in any venture will be very difficult.
Mercury is adequately strong but is way ahead of Sun in Leo [by 24 degrees] and thus Mercury will deny you a good mentality and will rob you of sufficient power of reasoning.
Further the yoga is much afflicted by presence of Ketu with it.
Together Sun conjunct Mercury will fail to offer any adequate level of yoga results and will amount more to creation of problems than to offer benefits or support.
The formation of the yoga in the ascendant can occasionally favor you with some good name or temporary popularity but no meaningful success in any occupation [especially in business] will be possible by virtue of this yoga per se.
The formation of the yoga in 10th house from Moon will give minimum success or gain after maximum hard efforts [due to Sun], despite your good academic success [due to Mercury].

Principles on which Budhaditya Yoga operates:
Budhaditya Yoga operates on the principle of combining the mutually beneficial effects of Sun and Mercury in a birth chart.
Sun, the source of life energy and Mercury, the planet of intellect, together combine the life-giving energy of Sun with the discretionary power of Mercury resulting into a yoga that makes the native an intelligent, discerning, creative, intellectual individual, and thus a socially well known, prosperous and praiseworthy person.

Obvious that such combination of these two planets – Sun and Mercury - is extremely lucky to have as it brings success, status, financial well being, power and respect in the society.
However the extent and quality of the good effects of this yoga will depend on the quality and trend of the entire horoscope along with the individual and collective strength and auspiciousness of Sun and Mercury and also the nature of their lordships and their placement in any horoscope.

For best results both Sun and Mercury should be in strong and favorable signs and houses, while none of them should be in debilitation signs or should not get any malefic association or aspect while Mercury should not be ahead of Sun or too close to Sun.
This yoga gives maximum good results when Mercury is behind Sun and is placed within 14 Degrees of Sun.
If it is below 3 degrees or above 27 degrees from Sun – the yoga results are negligible.
Retrograde Mercury in birth chart can somewhat restrict the good effects of this yoga away from the fullest fructification.
Further the current Mahadasa and sub dasa should be friendly with these two planets and also favorable for the specific ascendant of the native.

How to best Harness Budhaditya Yoga:
For effectively utilizing any yoga, you will need to show respect to and follow the preferences and inclinations of the planets forming the yoga.
Sun rules soul, order, power, authority and superiors while he demands honesty, generosity, discipline, obedience and hard work.

As the lord of your ascendant, Sun rules all matters of life.
From Moon sign, Sun rules the 10th house of occupation and all matters related to career.
Thus you must soulfully strive to handle well your attitude, through speech and other communication, working life [relationship with seniors, colleagues and subordinates], marital life and finance and try to ensure the maximum possible satisfaction of the authorities, growth of family happiness and wealth, and good relation with all at work, at home and also in society.

Shun ego and over confidence, honor and obey good advice and avoid differences everywhere.
Mercury rules intelligence, analytical power, creativity, and communication and investment decisions.
Mercury rules the 2nd house [speech, family, wealth accumulation] and the 11th house of gain from ascendant.

To utilize these traits and make gains from them and to avoid losses, you must practice good listening, appropriate speech, avoid attitude, ego, control over improper expenses and avoidance of speculative and hasty investments and control over indulgences through friends and others.
If you take the above actions, you will noticeably benefit from the yoga even though its period comes after the next two years in your case.

Suggestions on what to avoid:
Avoid being in any form of business.
Avoid over indulgence in any area of life and also avoid all negative thoughts.
Stay on the right side of rules, regulations and principles.
Avoid all shortcuts, optimizations and rationalizations as these may look smart and appear quite tempting, but are basically capable of harming you acutely and at the most inconvenient time.
Take care to avoid projecting unsolicited ideas and suggestions, especially to seniors at home or at work.
DO NOT invest in speculative or other areas.
Stay careful to choose your associations as chance of fraud by them can be strong.

Worship Sun every morning after bath by pouring out water.
Chant “Om Adityay Namah” during worship of Sun.
Keep a glass of water at your bedside near your head at night.
Pour this water at the feet of a Peepal tree in the morning.
Read or listen to Sri Vishnu Sahashranama Stotra daily.

Times in life when Budhaditya Yoga effects would manifest:
During the next five years you will go through the main period of Venus and sub periods of Rahu [till 13 Jul 2017] and Jupiter [till 14 Mar 2020].
Therefore the Yoga effects will not be directly available to you at this stage.
Also all of Venus, Rahu and Jupiter are ill placed in your chart and thus they will not promote or protect your life events by their own effects.

Yet your Budhaditya Yoga in your career house from Moon will try to guide you with enough intelligence and good judgment to maintain stability in career and avoid negative relationship with others but you may fail to take advantage of these till 27 Oct 2017 since your yoga will remain square to your transit Saturn in Scorpio till this date].

But at this stage transit Jupiter will join hands with the yoga and will help you in making precise observation, accurate analysis, improved communication and right decisions in occupation and you will only need to accept these and use this help.
After 27 Oct 2017 your yoga will help you more as the yoga will now be in trine to transit Saturn in Sagittarius till 2020.

Thus rational decisions in career matter and more stable and higher income will be possible, as long as you go by the guidance of the yoga.
At this stage too transit Jupiter will support the good effects of the yoga.
Your income and finance will be generally insufficient till 27 Oct 2017 despite having options to make changes in career path and thus bring in improvements.
You will get even more chance to improve career after this date till 2020.
Social life will remain quite active but fruitless throughout.
The area of your marital life will need more of your personal attention and initiative till 27 Oct 2017 and also later till 2020.
