An Astrological Yogas of Vedic or Hindu Astrology is formed due to some specific combinations of signs, planets, houses etc.

How Buddimaturya Yoga is formed? …

If in a birth chart the lord of the 5th house is an auspicious planet and it is either under aspect of another auspicious planet or it occupies an auspicious sign then this yoga is formed. (This definition is as per old astrological treatises)

Important Note: One needs to understand the use of the word ‘auspicious’. Whether a planet is auspicious (favourable) or inauspicious (unfavourable) is decided as per the ascendant sign of a birth chart. Just for an example the Sun is auspicious or favourable or a benefic planet for a Leo ascendant birth chart, but it is inauspicious for a Virgo ascendant birth chart.

Considering this fact the 5th lord can be auspicious only in birth charts of Taurus, Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces ascendant signs.
