Over three hundred astrology yoga combinations are mentioned through various well-accepted Vedic astrology-related texts. Astrology yogas are specific planetary combinations or formations seen in a birth chart. There are some yogas which are highly promising, and there are some yogas which are harmful. We use a precise checking method accurately as prescribed in respective texts.
There is a practice among some modern-day Astrologers to put new rules and combinations while judging yoga, which in our opinion, is not a good practice. Humans change with time, but planets and stars won't change their course. So it is better to stick with Vedic period scripts rather than applying modern thoughts.

The Sun sign is the Zodiac sign where the Sun is situated during your birth. The Sun sign calculation, according to the western system of astrology, is different from Vedic Astrology. For this reason, some of you may see a difference in the Sun signs per the western system and Vedic birth chart. Sun represents ego, authority, control, intelligence and wisdom. Since Sun represents your Atma or soul, the Sun sign is connected with eternal Karma. Even though the Sun sign is not displaying your visible character, it will reflect your inner thoughts.
The Moon Sign is the Zodiac sign where Moon is posited during your birth. This Sign or Rashi is also known as Janma Rashi or Birth Rashi.

Each Zodiac sign is capable of containing 2 and 1/4 of Nakshatras. Nakshatras are capable of influencing the characters of a planet which is passing by them.

A Bhava Chart or chalit chart is a vital addition to Vedic astrology, which helps an astrologer refine the exact position of a planet concerning houses in the birth chart. This chart is prepared by making the Lagna the midpoint of the first house and then calculating the rest of the houses. An astrologer needs to consider any shift of houses created by a planet in a bhava chart while analysing a horoscope.
Drishti, or aspect of a planet, is used when a planet influences another planet or house by sitting 180 degrees opposite the other planet. In Vedic astrology, there are special aspects cast by some planets. For example, Jupiter is capable of aspecting while positioned at 180 deg, 120 deg and 240 deg from a planet or house. Similarly, Saturn can aspect at 180, 60 and 270 degrees, and Mars can aspect at 180, 90 and 210 degrees. All other planets can aspect at 180 degrees from another planet or house.
Shub/Paap Graha in Vedic astrology referred to the malefic and benefic nature of the planet. Sun, Saturn, Mars, Rahu and Ketu are considered natural malefic planets. Jupiter and Venus are Natural Benefics. Moon will be regarded as a natural benefic if birth thithi is between Shukla paksha shashti and Krishna paksha shashti. Mercury will be considered malefic if, in conjunction with other malefic planets.

Myth or Fact?
When all the planets are hemmed in between Rahu and Ketu, then this inauspicious Yoga is formed. When a person is having such a combination in their chart are said to have accumulated some bad karma in their past life which they have to identify and correct in the present life. Something like a snake shedding its old skin and growing a new one.
