Kemadruma occurs when

(a) the moon has no neighbors [no planet in the 2nd or 12th sign from it], and

(b) there are no planets it’s kendra [i.e. at right angles, i.e. in the 1st, 4th, 7th, and 10th signs from it], and

(c) there are no planets in kendra from the ascendant.

The extent to which a, b, and c are met is the extent to which Kemadruma is fully potent. Factor “a” must be met, or it cannot form at all. In this yoga the term “planets” means only Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.

The symptom of a fully formed Kemadruma is complete inability to make use of prosperity and opportunities, and extreme emotional distance from the world. The extent to which the Kemadruma is not fully formed is the extent to which the effect is much less severe than the description just given.

It is a condition that is active for the lifetime of the native, but comes more to the fore during periods when the Moon has dasa, yearly lordship, or significant transits.

The remedy is psychological therapy to be more emotionally connected to ones opportunities and lifestyle, and develop greater sense of value in the persons and things therein.
