Yogas are combinations of astrological objects, the name is frequently used in Vedic astrology.
There are simple Yogas (e.g. position of Ascendant in a sign) and quite complex ones
dealing with many objects and restrictive conditions.
Special Types of Yogas
Some hints for interpreting Yogas:
Nabahasa Yogas are quite important. Each chart has a ruling Nabhasa Yoga determining the conditions of the person's life. The ruling Yoga is always the most complex one
(if more than one Yoga matches).
Example: someone has all planets in houses 7, 8, 9 and 10, Sakti Yoga (all planets in 4 continous houses from th 7th) matches as well as Kedara (all planets in 4 signs). The ruling Yoga
Lunar Yogas: the Moon is the most important ruler of the mind. So Lunar Yogas give the hint for general mental disposition of the person.

Effect: hint for the interpretation of the Yoga.
Source: scripture or person judging about the effect.
Varga Choice: determines which Varga chart to use for evaluation of the matching condition. Effects apply to that chart (e.g. Saptamamsa
Nakshatra based Yogas can only match in Rasi chart.
