In dhana bhava, one's personal vitality and social uniqueness (bhava-1) are shaped and supported by the values of the family history.
One gains valuable information from the family regarding one's deeper identity (beyond the body) and one Acquires the cultural values needed to develop one's purpose in society.
Ideally, the birth or adoptive family should provide information about food, money, history, art, music, language, and how to store and accumulate values.
If dhana bhava is well-supported, one receives good food, historical knowledge, emotional validation and material accumulation skills from the family unit.
If dhana bhava is troubled, the family-based transmission of the treasuries of knowledge + wealth may have been corrupted. Perhaps the family are immigrants who wish to leave their past values behind. Graha in 2 may describe reasons why some families prefer not to transmit their lineage history.
One may need to look outside one's family for cultural, financial, aesthetic, historical and linguistic support. Due typically to financial shortfall, the family-provided food may be less than nutritious, and accumulation behaviors are dysfunctional or weak. One may lack storage skills.
If dhana bhava is badly damaged, the native 's family might not provide even basic food; no songs, stories or lineage knowledge are passed along to the native; and one's access to accumulated wealth (any more than absolute survival) may be closed for the current lifetime.

Graha in the 2nd-from = predictors of family culture
Surya in bhava-2 or Surya in the relative 2nd-from agent
public figure examples
This family = proud, confident, and idealistic.
Typically, children are raised with lineage values of elite independence, and taught to believe that one's own decisions may be more authentic than others.
Family culture is rooted firmly in the paternal line; unless Chandra also occupies dhanabhava, there is relatively little attention to the history of the mother's line.
Tendency toward high self-value in the family unit as a whole; if not balanced, may express as arrogant or self-righteous. Such a lineage may produce executive decision-makers, politicians, dramatists, celebrity figures, and poets. The family narrative validates a discourse of creativity and superiority .
|Chandra in bhava-2 or Chandra in the relative 2nd-from agent|
public figure examples
|This family promotes deep emotional bonds between parents and siblings. Family culture is rooted firmly in the maternal line. |
Unless Surya also occupies bhava-2, less attention is invested into the knowledge of the father's line.
This family enjoys familiar foods and holiday gatherings; often traditional temple discourses frame their celebratory meals.
The family culture values financial wealth as the strongest assurance of emotional security . This lineage produces nursing caretakers who provide sustenance, shelter, and foundational education (not advanced philosophical discourse, but definitely the basics are provided).
Often they gather near a lake or ocean, take holidays at the seacoast, or relax at a favorite fishing spot.
Mangala in bhava-2 or Kuja in the relative 2nd-from agent
public figure examples
|This family = pioneering, competitive, muscular, sexual, military and athletic. They see themselves as
noble "first people", champions, and "winners ". They value speed, innovation, military prowess, and the power to initiate action. |
If Mangala is unbalanced, this robust family culture may produce warlike interactions, including violent or aggressive speech.
Family culture promotes individual selfishness. Life is a race with few winners! Every man for himself!
Family lineage produces athletic musculature and dominating personalities. It includes penetrating personalities who become psychiatrists, surgeons, police detectives, deep-sea divers, explorers, miners, military invaders, gold-medal winners, and emergency first responders.
Family culture validates competitive winners such as athletes, engineers, beauty queens, hunters, soldiers, and race drivers. Mangala's drishti upon the relative 5th may indicate miscarriage or otherwise limit the number of children.
or Budha in the relative 2nd-from agent
public figure examples
|This family has the gift of gab. They are gifted in speech and historical song, wonderful story-tellers and conversationalists, able to recount historical tales with flash and flair. When they sing, their song tells a scripted story. |
This family much prefers to talk about current events and business schemes. Unlike Chandra-2, they welcome friends and coworkers into their holiday gatherings.
This family often includes clever accountants, sales and marketing agents, craft and technical specialists who like to "talk shop"; also detail-oriented business administrators and commercial agents.
The family culture may value rhetorical form more than moral content. Budha is a narrative genius but He may be somewhat ambivalent or manipulative in the task making definitive judgments.
The lineage validates those descendants who make money through planning, writing, talking, reporting, arguing, explaining, describing, and producing media-messages. The lineage may produce talkers, singers, inventors, and attorneys.
|Guru in bhava-2 or
Brihaspati in the relative 2nd-from agent|
public figure examples
family history features abundant hoarded wealth and large amounts of stored knowledge. The lineage contains numerous bankers, mixed with storytellers, curators, herders, priests and professors. Family culture values wisdom (or apparent wisdom), humanistic (not technical) education, inclusiveness, sacred doctrine, and generosity of spirit.
Such a family is vociferously verbal and the native carries out this entitlement to pontificate with great confidence and quite liberally, perhaps entirely unconstrained by the facts of the case.
Splendid resource for singers and musicians - bhava-2 = song, melody voice, stories.
Typically the family enjoys significant knowledge of its own history, tracing their storied lineage through many generations. Often the family genetics produce large, even corpulent, bodies, tending toward a dark-reddish complexion (relative to the overall gene pool).
The lineage validates reproduction and is normally quite fertile, generating abundant offspring - depending naturally on Guru's state. Guru-yuti-Ketu, for example, "cuts " the reproductive flow in favor of other forms of abundance.
Zukra in bhava-2 or Zukra in the relative 2nd-from agent
public figure examples
|This family attracts (Zukra) wealth and sense- pleasures. |
The family members are generally collectors and storytellers, sensualistic, self-indulgent, and concerned with harmonious relationships.
They enjoy talking about art, music, relationships, and money.

The lineage produces fashion mavens, architects, perfumers, design engineers, musicians, singers, hair stylists, fine-artists, bankers, diplomats, and cuisinistes.
Typically the historic line attracts handsome people with fair complexion (relative to the gene pool) and balanced features.
Fashion, style, design, financial wealth, sweet foods and attractive appearance are some of the highest values in this family culture.
Shani in bhava-2 * or in the relative 2nd-from agent
public figure examples
A family narrative of fleshdeath, pressure of time and social judgment, genetic survival and historic limitations. Professor Shani teaches the way of hard work, respect for lawful structure, and "neutral separation" as the most effective method for the native to interact with the family's internal culture.
The family of origin often has social-material survival karma which manifests in a family culture of materialism, pragmatism, common sense, conformity, and resistance to new information. Professor Shani's methods are dedicated to maintaining the existing law, but He does not tolerate innovation.
Scarcity is a leading theme in the family narrative: no matter how hard they work, little acquisition seems to manifest. (And they work hard.)
The family may seem "stuck" in position despite expressing a desire for more material acquisition. Life is a struggle to "get ahead" but the goal of social mobility seems unattainable. It does not occur to the family that Shani's conservatism and staunch resistance to movement is the very feature that prevents social mobility.
Family culture promotes resistance to spoken truth - as if the truth threatens the rule of law . Hear no evil; see no evil; speak no evil. Especially, speak no evil - and ideally, just don't speak.
The family lineage grants a high value to conformity, lawfulness, and uniformity of appearance. Often the family strongly identifies with conservative hierarchies such as Church, Sahangam * sangha, class or caste system, corporate institution, or national government. Validation of merciless judgments and harsh consequences for failure to follow the RULES.
The script may include a punitive judgment upon the family's public reputation which causes the family to become "downwardly mobile" losing the increase in social rank that was conferred by the previous generation. A difficult or socially forced second marriage may be required for legal propriety or for survival.
In particular, bhava-2 = 6th-from-9th suggesting conflict with the father and a perpetual (Shani) disagreement with the indoctrinators of the historic lineage who impose an orthodoxy of belief. Shani provides substance of conflict in areas of physical and social survival, common sense and conventional behavior, social structure, rank and caste.
Shani-2 may also suggest health concerns for the father arising from his rigidity, materialism, workload, scarcity, social oppression, and resistance to change (Shani).
The lineage history may harken to dry, mountainous, cold, land-locked or rocky areas of the Earth. This lineage produces primarily workers, materialists, skeptics, carriers of burdens, mechanics and engineers, practical and pragmatic, concerned with paper, brick, concrete, asphalt, roads, structures, skeletons, stones, and bones.
If Shani rules or occupies bhava-2, the overall family situation may improve modestly with the passage of time.
|Rahu in bhava-2 or Rahu in the relative 2nd-from agent|
public figure examples
When evaluating the effects of Rahu-Ketu, it is essential to note the character of the planetary lord of R-K *plus* any yuti-graha before making a final judgment.
The family lineage hosts a history of ambitious acts fueled by the quest for social mobility. Often upwardly mobile, in flagrante. Interruption (Rahu) of the regular family traditions via taboo-breaking passions, irregular deaths (2), or misappropriations of financial wealth (2)with possibility of disruptive agency via a taboo second marriage.
In particular, bhava-2 = 6th-from-9th suggesting conflict with the father and an ambitious (Rahu) disagreement with the indoctrinators of the historic lineage who impose an orthodoxy of belief.
Rahu seeks to obtain social privilege without slogging through Shani's orderly process for earning entitlements. Slippery Rahu usually can avoid tests and examinations; therefore much of what He says is unverified or unverifiable.
Rahu in bhava-2 suggests a family culture of expedient speech, camouflaged lies, falsified historical memory, instrumental use of knowledge, exotic libraries or irregular use of treasuries. Rahu-2 tends to use language for deceptive or ulterior purposes, and His goal is always advancement along a quick trajectory toward highest entitlements - sans effort or examination.
Fast-track Rahu-2 shows the overall family ambition for "upward mobility". Also within the family history may be found exotic interlopers and poseurs, fabricated stories, and lubricated credentials that allow Rahu to slither quickly toward acquisition of treasuries.
|Ketu in bhava-2 or Rahu in the relative 2nd-from agent |
public figure examples
|When evaluating the effects of Rahu-Ketu, it is essential to note the character of their planetary lord AND any yuti-graha before making a final judgment.
Family lineage may be significantly disconnected.
Family culture may exhibit apathy, ambivalence, distancing, or disinterest. Family life may be enervated by drugged numbness, mental illness, or a historic dissociative pattern.
This lineage validates a state of uncertainty about the family surname, connectedness to an fixed set of values, and fogginess about the place of origin.
General ambivalence about the process of accumulating valuable goods and conserved knowledge, but Ketu does not block family wealth, knowledge, speech, or song. Ketu-2 may be found in the nativities of some uber-wealthy HNWI.
Ketu has no opinion about family assets.
Ketu does not care whether the asset-treasury comes or goes. For this family, the real excitement is Rahu-8 with its knowledge of secret empowerment and occult truths.
