Domain occupied by the Planetary Ruler of the Fourth Bhava

  • social and emotional security, property ownership + continuation of the grounding of a people in their place;

  • protection; shelter ; habitual practices and beliefs;

  • anchorage; foundation; roots; ethnic folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms


Everyone is a guardian of some aspect of human life and culture. The commitment to stewardship is an ancient promise to protect and nurture the portion of civilization for which one feels the deepest affection.

Bhava-4 has an extensive terrain including cultural stability through habituated rhythms and routines, seasonal festivals, protection of the vulnerable, caretaking, owned property, the rights of native peoples, parenting, schoolteaching, transportation and vehicles.

Bandhu-bhava nurtures the roots and soothes the mind via maintaining the ebb-and-flow of a predictable Way of Life.

Ethic * Ethnic

The bhava containing bandh-pathi-4 expresses a rooted attachment to all things nourishing, soothing, local and familiar:

  • Old Ways, Old School, Ancient Rhythms, fundamentals base, basics,

  • Comfortable habits and folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms deepened through the generations, Parents, Shelters, schools,

  • roadways and shipping channels; wagons, sleds, carts, carriages, cars; ships, yachts, boats

  • ethnic peoples, ethical behaviors, culture and agriculture, roots,

  • the walls ("mora", thus 'morality') which protect and surround the place of settlement

  • Parentalism, parochialism, stewardship of the Land and local Waters

  • patriotism, Home, Nation, birthplace

bandesha-4 shows the security based in socialization via schooling , and is benefic.

Along with bhava-4, the bandhu-pathi shows foundational material and psychological conditions of the childhood home.

  • bandesha-4 bhava-6 is most uncomfortable for childhood security and protection, and may indicate abuse in the home.

  • However bandesha-4 in bhava-8 and bandesha-4 in bhava-12 are supportive placements, being all within the Moksha trine.

Emotional conditions prevailing in childhood home, see also lord of 4th-from-Chandra (but this is more accurately the Mother's childhood home, which Mom then recreates as a familiar culture, when raising her child .)

If bandesha-4 happens to be Mangala (for Simha lagna and Makara lagna ) some of the"stability" benefits of bandesha-4 = lost because Mangala is so energetic

Nevertheless Kuja the karaka for movement, engines, drilling is motivated to pursue landed property holdings, fleets of vehicles (boats, cars, airplanes).

Although Kuja is a bit impatient with the rhythmic repetitions (Chandra natural L-4) of schoolwork, Mangala as bandesha-4 if well-placed can assist obtainment of educational diploma. Such a student may need to be very active physically in order to successfully complete a sit-down course of study.

Das commentary says to expect good results from bandhu-pati in regard to schooling, houses, fields, and conveyances, if:

"The lord of the 4 is in a kendra

  • or the lord of the 4 is in a trine

  • or the lord of the 4 is is in its mulatrikona

  • or the lord of the 4 is exalted

  • or the lord of the 4 is in its own sign ,

AND the lord of the 4 is considered Strong in Shad Bala. "

"Happiness, education, conveyances, lands, agriculture, etc., will thrive well.

  • You will dig wells and construct new houses.

  • You will plant trees and your agriculture will flourish."

He worked so hard to thwart the14th amendment that he was impeached for obstructionism.

siblings / teamwork / Local group / mental process

bandesha-4 in imaginative, invisible 12th-from-swakshetra is generally not auspicious.

When the ruler of any bhava occupies the 12th bhava from swakshetra, the matters of that sthana are spiritualized (pulled back into their astral form) rather than materialized (pushed forward into their physical form).

The expected dissolving of roots and loss of "proofs of belonging" -- such as deeds of title, licenses to practice a trade, and diploma from school completion -- can be reversed via strength of the bhratrupathi-3 or amplification of Chandra.

  • Gitanjali 1861-1941 Rabindranath Tagore -Thakur * was a staunch supporter of the local traditions and generally appreciated (Zukra) by the folks who shared his Bangla cultural roots. But naturally when the bandesha-4 occupies 12th from swakshetra, no matter how excellent may be the graha in 4 , there is a draining of the materializing energy of initiative regarding matters of 4. Tagore's foundational education (4) was strongly British-influenced (12th-from-4th, foreign education); therefore local folk could not fully embrace his Mesha-style championship views of schooling, farming, or homelife. Shri B.V. Raman says that Mesha is the rashi of Britain.

Drains the life-force energy away from the stability and predictable tides of the family home, and causes a retreat into the imagination or into distant lands.

  • POTUS-41 All the Best 1924- George H. W. Bush + Surya * parivartamsha bhratrupathi-3 Zukra-4. Mr. Bush lived away from his family for most portions of his 40 year international political career, visiting only when his responsibilities allowed.

  • Shambala 1939-1987 Tulku Chogyam Trungpa + Budha-yuti- Surya * parivartamsha bhratrupathi-3 Shani-4 * although it was to provoke a productive writing and instructional career, he was forced to leave his homeland during the Chinese occupation in 1959 under dire circumstances

May be good for writers, presenters, announcers

If other maternal factors are present, may indicate premature loss of the Mother.

  • Material Girl 1958- Madonna = bandesha-4 Budha in 3 + maraka dhanapati-2 Chandra (mother). Tragically, her age-30 mother died of breast cancer when little Louise was only six.

Loss of property claims

dissolution of owned properties.

loss of schooling or incomplete course of study, diploma not received

  • owned properties lose their original value and are sold at a discount during periods of L-3

When bandesha-4 occupies 12th-from-swakshetra there is some loss of roots, loss of property, loss of basic socializing education.

  • The mother's folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms are not useful, one is not interested in their development, or one is somehow alienated from her mannerisms, her properties, her sense of belonging to a fixed place.

one may have received basic skills education without a deeper connection to traditions grounded in the land of his people.

One may be a capable skills-trainer of others, with a practical, manual or mental task orientation.

Clever but grounded in the use of words and helps to establish new talent, especially writers

if one is oneself a writer, may write upon topic such as what lies under the ground (4) or comment upon the foundations of folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms

  • POTUS-11 Manifest Destiny 1795-1849 James Knox Polk was an ambitious slave-plantation owner who acquired ever more land and slaves throughout his adult career. Slaves in his view = a category of agricultural property.

If a negative graha, the parents may be conservative and limiting; nevertheless Chandra the natural regulator of 4 has no enemies

all styles of parenting are beneficial to the child if those styles are secure, protective, and internally consistent . Positive attribute of bandesha-4 in 4 guarantees the consistency.

Mother and mother's tradition are strong and positive influence in one 's life, presuming an auspicious graha. Even swakshetra Shani here will give a good education.

Natural teacher of adults and children who loves and promotes the traditions of their upbringing. Teaches the subject matter consistent with the graha and rashi, in a practical style geared to producing socially validated citizens. Patriotic.

Tremendous need for physical and psychic protection, which one obtains via the most secure and well-defended physical property .

Must have a well-defended home in order to feel protected and secure.

Chandra dramapathi provided a religious element via the familiar worshipful hymns. Yet naturally given that Chandra occupies 8th-from-9th, Elvis Presley was also a frightening agent of upheaval (8) particularly in the way he included African passions, voice-tone and rhythms into his European speech, song, and dance.

bandesha-4 in Bhava 5

Rooted, rhythmic habitual behaviors ground and stabilize the children, Romance, literary genius, willfulness, Speculative ventures, Games, intelligence, celebration, charisma, fame.

The native is distinctively intelligent yet generally not reckless, except perhaps in romance. Naturally other graha in bhava-5 must be considered.

bandesha-4 in 2nd-from-swakshetra, and in a trine house = auspicious for property ownership and education.

Children have a strong sense of their cultural roots, through the food and stories transmitted via the mother's family. Strong attachment to the mother's family, strong matrilineal influence back several generations. Speculative profits from dealings in land and homes.

  • UK-PM Finest Hour 1874-1965 Winston Churchill , author of A History of the English-Speaking Peoples, was deeply attached to his cultural roots and strove to teach (bandesha-4 in 5) others on the topic.

However, bandesha-4 = Budha-5 = afflicted by both Ketu and by Budha's enemy Guru. Also Ketu and Guru = less than 1 degree separated. Churchill's parents carelessly abandoned (Ketu, carelessness) their very young son putting him in a boarding school where he took to drink (ruler-of-12 Zukra in 6). Visits home were not allowed as the parents were 'too busy'

May start schools, own profitable schools, or win contests in schools. Typically a strong and intelligent student, independent minded, less prone to drills and repetition and more brightly charismatic, unless the graha delays.

May be a gifted teacher who brings a clever performance to teaching the core traditions, particularly subjects related to the the nation of birth. Childhood home influenced by wealth and fortune through speculative ventures.

Needs political or romantic intrigue in order to feel protected and secure (5).

splendid placement for homeland politicians

Lord of 12th-from-5th in bhava-5

  • withdrawal into secluded, private arrangements in matters of romance, politics, speculative ventures, creative performance, children

The lord of Chandra's house is comfortable in the swabhava of Surya.

Ruler of a kendra residing in a trinal house does generally produce beneficial effects. However there is a certain "undertow" caused by L-4's role as ruler of 12th-from-5th signifying" Loss of Center-Stage Roles "

  • In politics, there is back-room dealing.

  • In romance, private bedroom relationships "fly under the radar".

The children are generally well educated and the mother's cultural roots are exceptionally influential in the children's character and upbringing. Emphasis on educational discipline and the rule of customary behaviors in the mother's society or" national culture" may threaten to overwhelm the children's creative, personalized intelligence.

Romance is grounded in the home culture. one seeks emotional stability through the notoriously unstable, brilliant, theatrical experience of love and romance. Disappointment in romance on this account. In response one places one's core hope of stability into the process of birthing and raising children.

Concern with security (bhava-4), holding on to lands and properties (bhava-4), and other instinctive protective and defending actions pushes through into bhava-5 creativity.

  • Pucci Prints 1914-1992 Emilio Pucci took the most basic (4) artistic patterns of his Italian architectural heritage and transformed those designs into an innovative and exciting line of haute couture clothing (5, genius, glitter, celebrity).

bandhesha-4 in putrabhava-5 signifies stability (4) and a predictable, secure lifestyle generally including children (5). Not so comfortable for avant garde creativity, unique intelligence, or large gains from speculation since a regular, rhythmic routine is more important than dramatic displays. Yet one may be gifted with large properties and have a very creative, inspired way of managing one's lands.

Clever, creative methods of sustaining the national folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms despite the undertow of conservative cultural forces (bhava-4) who never want anything to change.

May be a superb trainer and socializing educator. This native should not stray far from the world of children, whether as a parent or a teacher. One's emotional stability is tied to children and the development of their intelligence.

Mother died while nursing (Chandra-6 mother) wounded soldiers during the Revolutionary War (6, war). His own adult home was a prosperous plantation worked by slaves (6, slavery). However due to Ketu-4 he was not home very much.

  • Friends 1969- drama-commerce Jennifer Aniston bandhesha Shani * Zukra-yuti-Rahu. Yogakaraka Shani for the Thula nativity provides hard-won security via the special behaviors of bhava-4 schooling and bhava-5 intellectual intelligence. But Shani's rewards arrive slowly. Although Ms. Aniston has enjoyed a prosperous, high-profile career in modeling and drama, her education ended with high school and her life security was afflicted by (1) her parent's contentious divorce when she was only nine years old and (2) a first, attenuated marriage ending in destabilizing divorce. Shani delays but does not (normally) deny. Therefore in matters of foundational security, property ownership (4) and expression of intelligence via the creative arts (5), Ms. Aniston will eventually achieve full security.

If other indicators point to a step-father (8th from Surya) the step-father can become an agent of harm toward the child, in Mangala-related ways, such as verbal violence or physical abuse (depending on drishti and rashi of Kuja).

The parents of a nativity displaying bandesha-4 in satkona may be victims of some type of addiction, social conflict, war, thievery, poverty, or they have been pressed into servitude by betrayal or broken contracts.

If bandesha-4 = Mangala in 6, much physical upheaval including circumstances of domestic violence and social war.

While his citizens lived in poverty and servitude (Chandra homelife) Castro and his small circle of associates (brother, sons) lived in conditions of remarkable luxury. Appearing to his exploited people as a paragon of anti-capitalism and social equality, Castro owned luxury vehicles such as cars and boats, and dozens of homes and properties with elaborate security defenses (4).

....They subsequently ran a gamut of disease, poverty, and despair. Their survival was barely financed by loans (6) from hostile relatives (6) . His unstable childhood home collapsed as his mother descended into schizophrenia (6, mentality of the mother 3rd-from-4th). His schooling (4) in Germany was broken by the Nazi threat. Ketu-4 = absent or distracted parents.

  • Luckily for the Prince Consort, Budha-Mithunaya-6 grants excellent military planning and communication skills. He enjoyed a long career in military service (6), as the war-conflict setting is a mentally engaging environment for him.

  • Lord of the Rings 1892-1973 J.R.R. Tolkien at age 3lost his father to a fatal hemorrhage and at age 12 lost his mother to terminal diabetes. Luckily bandesha-4 = generous paternal Guru; orphan Tolkien's education was managed by a fatherly priest friend of his mother's. Guru = priest. Chandra-yuti-Guru = mother's priest.

bandesha-4 = Chandra in bhava-6 = the anchoring, stabilizing bandhesha moves into ari-sthana-6 unfairness, exploitation, conflict. Chandra care-takes, nourishes, protects, soothes, parents within unbalanced conditions of the homeland, the food sources, the land ownership, the cultural practices Psycho-emotional ailments for the native and servitude or debts for one's mother.

  • My Inventions 1856-1943 Nikola Tesla ' s mother was a domestic servant who suffered much exploitation and illness. His bandesha-4 Chandra-6 was much complexified and the ailments mentally exacerbated by Chandra yuti Mangala-yuti-Ketu. He developed a debilitating pattern of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder later in life.

bandesha-4 = Budha in bhava-6 = the anchoring, stabilizing bandhesha moves into ari-sthana-6 unfairness, exploitation, conflict. Budha announces, reports, converses, argues about these unbalanced conditions of the homeland, the food sources, the land ownership, the cultural practices

  • China-Dictator 1893-1976 Mao Zedong was characterized as a social leveler, protector of the weak and champion of the poor. However Shani parivartamsha Zukra caused the creation of a draconian ultra-privileged political aristocracy that was arguably much worse than the injustice Mao was trying to correct.

bandesha-4 = Guru in bhava-6

bandesha-4 = Zukra in bhava-6 = the anchoring, stabilizing bandhesha moves into ari-sthana-6 unfairness, exploitation, conflict. Zukra pleasures, enjoys, balances, remedies, meditates unbalanced conditions of the homeland, the food sources, the land ownership, the cultural practices, the home and hearth. Native or native's mother may be prone to alcoholism or other sweet-sensual addictions, as a method to numb some experience of childhood suffering.

  • Duino Elegies 1875-1926 Rainer Maria Rilke * parivartamsha rogesha-6 Guru-4 * mentally and physically ill mother. He developed substance addictions while self-medicating painful disease conditions.

  • POTUS-pair-16 Illinois 1818-1882 Mary Todd Lincoln + Budha + Guru + Surya suffered the death of her mother at age 8, followed by her wealthy father's remarriage to a hostile stepmother and the arrival of nine further children. Her childhood experience from age 8 until adulthood ranged from parental negligence (Ketu-4) to overt mistreatment (Surya-6 ruling Rahu-2 indicates a verbally abusive father). Yet there was social grace, education, and the wealth of town-life which contrasted to the often dire poverty and illiteracy of the surrounding pioneer farmers. Mary bonded with an elder sister which somewhat relieved the home stress. (Ketu-4 allows Mary to abandon the childhood home). But Zukra-6 bandesha indicates ongoing conflict despite the trappings of material luxury.

  • Christian Science 1821-1910 Mary Baker Eddy + Surya-yuti-Budha. Ms. Eddy was addicted to morphine during the later decades of her long life. She suffered increasing paranoia and hallucinations.

  • Mad Monk 1869-1916 Romanov Grigori Rasputin was a lifetime alcoholic and visitor of brothels. Nevertheless and perhaps as a result, he appealed to aristocratic women in distress and was reputed as a healer.

  • POTUS-19 Railroad Strike 1822-1893 Rutherford B. Hayes had bandhesha Shani-Meza * nichha. His father died when Rutherford was still in utero. The family home was impoverished.

bandesha-4 in 3rd-from-swakshetra is generally less benevolent for matters of the early childhood home, the stability of the lives of the parents, and one's early foundational education.

bandesha-4 in bhava-6 indicates that the mother's relatives have a good deal of control over the behavior or life-style options of the mother, and that one may live with the maternal relatives at some time during the childhood years.

Harms the health of the parents.

  • Mother of POTUS-26 National Parks 1843-1919 Theodore Roosevelt had delicate health, lived a high-conflict lifestyle as a southern Confederate sympathizer married to a Yankee activist, and died of disease (6) in her son's home

  • Total Surrender 1910-1997 Mother Teresa of Kolkata left her abusive family home at age 17, moved to a foreign land (Ireland) and never again allowed her mother or sisters to see her. (bandesha-4 Mesha Chandra-yuti-Shani in 6 may indicate severe child abuse at the hands of both mother-Chandra and step-father nichha bandesha-4 in 6.)

Conflict, poverty, or medical imbalance for the mother's family, perhaps conflict going back several generations. Prostitution, illness, or deep servitude of mother, perhaps caused by psychological exploitation or physical captivity of war.

The mother's cultural roots (4) are distrusted or the physical structure of the home is untrustworthy, corrupt.

  • Mother and her property much controlled by her own siblings, but disagreements in those relationships and frustration or conflict through misuse of resources or greed.

  • One may be raised in the home of the mother's relatives, especially if Chandra or lagnesha is also in bhava-6. Heavy debt through student loans or other financing of education.

Positive outcomes

  • are numerous ... provided one understands one's own karma.

  • The self-knowing native accepts the destiny to work in unbalanced, blameful conditions that are rife with disappointment in broken contracts, debt, imbalance, and social conflict.

One may be a gifted educator (4) of financial skills for those who have foundered in home management, a teacher of debt management, operate a school which educates students in clinical use of medicine/drugs; or teach family conflict resolution, real estate skills training, farming and land management practices to those who have become unbalanced in their initial approach to matters of bhava-4.

  • Recently I saw a client with bandesha-4 in bhava-6 who had become very successful in the down markets of 2009-2010. Her profession?"Distressed-property specialist". She is a real estate agent (4) who specializes in negotiating with loan-makers (6) on behalf of clients who are poised to lose their home to foreclosure.

  • She is brilliantly aware of her profession as a human services ministry . She treats every (blaming, frustrated, upset) client with financial accuracy, neutral compassion, and basic human respect.

Service and servants help to feel protected and secure.

Bodes poorly for emotional balance in one 's early childhood home. Sick, victimized, or abusive mother.

If a malefic + bandesha-4 in 3rd-from -swakshetra harms the education. Raised in an insulated, isolated home environment. Conflict in school due to willfulness and mental instability. Conflict in the family home, adversarial relationship between the parents.

A conservative and suspicious thinker with limited cultural knowledge; insecure because the family base is damaged. Malefic influences however improve with time for upachaya effects, e.g. 3rd, 6th, 10th, and 11th angles.

  • China-Dictator 1893-1976 Mao Zedong had bandesha-4 Budha-yuti-Mangala in roga-bhava-6. Mao aggressively(Kuja) restructured the Chinese school system and imposed Draconian rules for managing scarcity which landed millions into "re-education camp" punishments. Although his methods were considered criminal (6) by his citics, Mao's goal was to educate (4) China's foundational classes (4)


  • Because bhava-6 is Budha's house of argument and criticism, one can expect to receive abundant criticism for one's schooling, parents, cultural roots, early childhood home, vehicles, property ownership, and acts of patriotism.

  • Matters of cultural education Or nationalistic sentiment may become scandalous or even criminalized; one's ethnic identity may become a source of contention

If benefic, gives property ownership but financial troubles through suspicious communications; attracts storm damage to properties, poor crops, and difficult tenants.

Mother's identity is bonded to her siblings, who are greedy and unpleasant. False family mythologies mask the conflict of their youth. Unable to tell the truth about their fighting parents or conflicted home life, which makes it hard to get help. Remains self-indulgent, self-defensive, and unhappy.

If bandesha-4 is dignified, can give a good career in educational finance, mortgage lending, vehicle sales, or visiting nurse.

Ruler of 4 located in 4th-from-4th extremely strong position for matters of legal advocacy and advising, particularly in matters of property ownership foundational schooling, transportation, building patterns, customs and cultural roots, boundary defense, or policing. One is often a vigorous nationalist or promoter of ethnic customs.

  • Protestant Reformation 1483-1549 Martin Luther bandesha-4 = Budha in bhava-7 * Luther's argumentative theological and legal writings created the basis for nationalized religions with vernacular worship service, called in Europe the Established Church (7 = 4th-from-4th)

bandesha-4 in the sheltering, schooling, grounding, rhythmic, customary 4th-from-swakshetra = auspicious for matters of balance, agreement, partnership, schools, homes, real-estate contracts.

The mother's mother is often a grounding, protective figure. Even when other elements of the nativity are unstable, and even when conditions in bhava-4 are uncomfortable, ruler of 4 residing in 4th-from-4th grants adequate nourishment and shelter to sustain the lifetime.

The strongest protective benefits accrue when bandesha-4 = Chandra in bhava-7. However this placement also implies that one seeks in the spouse-partner a caretaking parent-figure rather than an equal adult partner.

  • Layla 1945- guitarist Eric Clapton was born to a young teenage mom, and raised to adulthood by his maternal grandmother. Clapton identifies his grandmother as an anchor in his sometimes overwrought life. The woman he thought was his elder sister was actually his mother.

Highly supportive and comfortable placement for basic teaching roles.

  • Way of Zen 1915-1973 radio philosopher Alan Watts was known as a master teacher, whose explanations and examples in the previously remote area of Eastern Religions guided the next generation of western philosophers and educators

Excellent placement for educators, particularly those who teach adults or who teach in matters of law and contracts.

  • General Electric CEO 1935- Jack Welch * Surya-yuti-Guru * throughout his commercial management career, Mr. Welch entitled himself as a teacher, and in retirement he created an eponymous MBA program in which he taught and was personally engaged. The school was near his birthplace (Boston, Chandra-4 generally stays near the birthplace).

4th-from-4th also signifies the maternal grandmother, one's own mother's property holdings which may be controlled by the maternal grandmother. (Although 4th from Chandra is a better indicator of the emotional environment created by the agent = mother's mother.)

Spouse hails from a similar cultural background to one's own mother's family, and spouse may be a roots relative of that clan.

Spouse is a natural parent, patriotic, caretaker/steward of the land, and loves the home.

If bandesha-4 is comfortably configured, the life-partner is possessed of considerable landed properties, and the partner very likely has a good education. * especially true when Budha or Guru = L-4/yuvatipathi-7 such as for Mithuna and Kanya lagna.

bandesha-4 in yuvati-bhava = suited to roles such as educational adviser or maker of partnership agreements with educators, home-builders, property-owners, parents, and other sheltering protectors.

Excellent position for land use attorney, property or vehicle adjudicator, assessor or evaluator (Thula, 7) of deeds and titles to property.

bandesha-4 in Bhava 8

  • Hidden knowledge and treasury; secrets; camouflage disguise masking

  • transformative and catastrophic change;

  • deep healing, surgery, tantra

Any graha which is born into randhra bhava becomes subject to the fast spinning of the cycle (8) of self-destruction and rebirth (8). The speed of change-of-form is often terrifying.

A hidden house

  • Berkshire Hathaway 1930- capitalist Warren Buffett bhava-4 ruled by nichha-Zukra-8. During his splendid financial-power ascent, Buffett remained in his birth town of Omaha, Nebraska, continuing to live in the same dwelling that he bought in 1958. His home is camouflaged via its very unpretentious normalcy, blending with the bourgeois neighborhood although secure.

Matters of the bhava which are ruled by graha in 8 are controlled by this fast-turning, re-cycling , identity-destroying and regenerating hidden life force. Effects of graha in 8 are frightening, secretive, occult, mysterious, hidden, shocking magical, rejuvenating and changing-changing-changing.

  • ran-Shah 1919-1980 Mohamed Reza Pahlavi + Zukra-yuti-Shani Mangala rules-4 occupies-8 * The Shah was educated in Switzerland and had only minimal understanding of the poverty, illiteracy, and deeply held religious folkways, expressions of piety, ancient customs, and established cultural norms of his people. His ambitious (Rahu-11) reform policies benefited only the westernized elites, while leaving the great base of village people feeling that their identity was being threatened by catastrophically aggressive social change

May endure frequent house-shift (4) but usually each time is an upgrade since 8 is 5th-from-4.

  • Homeopathy 1784-1843 Dr. Samuel Hahnemann notoriously moved house with his 11 children numerous times as he sought a better place to write. The moves were mainly local within his birth valley in Saxony. A final house shift after his second marriage, completely away from the home-culture into urban Paris, brought his practice and reputation to a positive pinnacle, suggesting the final upgrade.

bandesha-4 in 5th-from-swakshetra is benevolent for intelligent gambling and charismatic politics usually due to creative skills for managing sudden and shocking changes in the lives of the parents and caretakers.

One or both of the parents may have unstable identities, and the childhood home may be often transformed or reborn in sudden, unexpected ways. Caretakers may be masked agents or impostors. Yet 8 = 5th-from-4th, suggesting scholarship and celebrity if the graha in 8 are radiant. The young person Often adapts to instability in the home with creative intelligence.

  • POTUS-44 Audacity of Hope 1961- Barack H. Obama * yuti Rahu. His parents were prone to sudden identify changes, moving from nation to nation and role to role. His more stable and functional parents were his maternal grandparents. Simha-Mangala bandesha-4 occupies bhava-8 suggesting that the maternal grandmother had a potent but camouflaged role in preparing her grandson to undertake political transformations.

Someone else on the list of dramatis personae for the present incarnation steps in to take over the parenting role in a better upgraded version (usually better) due to the bandesha-4 being subject to trans-form-ation.

Several iterations of regeneration of the parent-figures. This pattern is usually materially successful due to the auspicious 5th angle.

The childhood home and mother's cultural roots are plunged into a mystical, transformative world of sudden, magical changes . It is performance genius which draws from solid ethnic roots.

bandesha-4 occupies 5th-from-Swakshetra; this placement can be beneficial if properly understood . Native may need to endure may transformations of the parental home, the school-house or school-teaching culture, or even cataclysms of the nation-state

  • The concept of ownership vs. stewardship will be revisited many times.

Despite a reasonable schooling in the folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms of owns own people, this angle may catapult one into an understanding that the nation or culture of birth (4) is a foundation for evolution (8) and not the fixed root of personal identity. One may indeed experience the fortune (bhagya) which arises from intelligence (5th-from) in matters of property boundaries, homes and vehicles, and cultural foundations (5th-from-4th). One indeed knows the folk and their folkways. One may "game" (5) the cultural roots via charismatic performance, entertainments and speculations. One does not cling to the simple life based on property ownership and practice of inherited routines.

  • POTUS-32 Fireside Chats 1882-1945 Franklin D. Roosevelt * nichha-Shani-yuti-Guru. FDR had a reasonable foundational education befitting his birth into the leadership class. However, he was born to lead at a time of enormous cultural (4) transformation (5) in the West. He had the exceptionally difficult task to protect the foundational security of the Anglo-American culture while allowing the destruction of millions of lives in warfare (nichha-Shani). FDR was intensely involved in the politics (5) of power regarding which, if any, of the folk cultures (4) would survive en route to the New Age. Although it was assertively proposed that German culture become the foundation for the New Order, FDR was able to thwart that conformist rule led by Germany-Nazi 1933-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler and consequently the Euro-American cultural model was empowered (4).

The cultural roots are not damaged and ethnicity remains meaningful, but there is another perspective, a secret one, which shows one how to transform the cultural inheritance into something quite ingenious and new.

May be an educator of medical or psychic healers, the operator of a tantric school, or one who creates a home for poisoned or traumatized persons.

Educated in the mysteries;

trained to be a facilitator of secrets. of course, having been educated, one realizes the knowledge is rather an 'open secret'

Excellent for midwives and surgeons, those who take the foundational materials and make some intelligent change to it.

Gain of stability and social security through the spouse's assets. one will move house often, and frequently one chooses not to own property at all.

Esp. if bandesha-4 is benevolent, one has all the use of properties, vehicles, schools etc. but does not need the effort of ownership).

If bandesha-4 is less benevolent, the energy field around one's home is always shape-shifting.

One may be betrayed or harmed in one's home, or by one's countrymen.

Must have privileged or magical knowledge in order to feel protected and secure.

kinder-kuche-kirke roots emerge via father - doctrine - divinity - human discourse regarding the paradigm of belief (9)

Generally some conflict (6/8) between the localized view (4) and high theoretical wisdom (9) unless other graha accompany the bandesha-4 within dharmasthana. Tendency for bandesha-4 to transfer the folk beliefs of 4 into the university theories of 9.

However one may have a particular genius for carrying the property-ownership matters of 4 such as housing, land use, water use, deeds of title, environmental site-management etc. into the theoretical, principled discussions of the temple-9.

  • POTUS-31-pair Girl Scouts 1874-1944 Lou Henry Hoover gained public respect for her independent supervision of the rebuilding of the presidential rural retreat in Virginia. She understood the principles of building, and could communicate (Budha) her intentions clearly. Even in those gender-prejudiced days of the early 1930's the male workers including architects and engineers were willing to follow her guidance (9)

Should the graha which is rules bhava-4 be socially dignified, one may demonstrate expertise in legal theory of property, philosophy of environmental law, development of constitutional principles of education, and similar bandhu-bhava-4 local input producing dharmabhava-9 global output.

  • VPOTUS Climate Change 1948- Al Gore = iconic exponent (Budha) of scientifically verified (Kumbha) terrestrial climate change

Always problematic 6-8 angle, even when the exponent is socially successful

The awkward ashtaka 6-8 angle between 4 and 9 brings out the genius of 4-9 only in conflicted settings, when the old local cult or the old property rights or the old local schooling (4) are in conflict with some type of globalizing influence (9).

Thus bandesha-4 in 9 = generally a good angle for professional who are trained to manage local-global conflicts that occur in the process of social-class change, such as attorneys and religious counselors.

Home-ownership, cultural boundaries, Parenting and Schoolteaching (4) are prone to conflict due to the draw of higher knowledge (9) but ultimately the results are favorable.

Faith of our Fathers

Even when bandesha-4 remains steadfastly parochial in its outlook, one may become a familiar representative of the fundamental and customary faith of an ethnic people.

  • Old Time Feeling 1929-2003 June Carter Cash was a popular exponent of the habitual and customary religious faith of the Scots-Irish (Ulster) influenced, protestant Christian rural lifestyle

Articulator preserver or exponent of folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms, rhythms, roots, routines

Customary, routine-seeking bandesha-4 occupies adversarial 6th-from-swakshetra. Foundational schooling (4) and folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms can pervade higher discourse of philosophical principles (9) placing habitual folk beliefs of a settled people (4) in conflict with authentic philosophical or theological discussions (9).

Parochialism, fundamentalism, folk heritage , enters the priestly apprehension of higher dharma

  • Raja Yoga 1863-1902 Swami Vivekananda * missionary first within India and then throughout the US and Europe, laying the foundation (4) for the spread of the ancient (4) philosophies (9) of Advaita Vedanta

A gifted preacher who can transmit high ritual while maintaining an emotional interest in the emotional well being of the audience.

  • Before entering politics to continue the legacy of his famous politician father *Surya-10*, VPOTUS Climate Change 1948- Al Gore attended Vanderbilt Divinity School to prepare for a career in religious ministry (Budha lagnesha + bandesha-4 in dharma-9).

  • After completing his political career, Gore embraced the environmentalist ethical narrative; he won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for his eloquent preaching upon global warming.

Patriotism and ethnic roots expressed via the inspirational pulpit.

A seeker of religious and philosophical truth, but rarely at rest in a single set of beliefs.

bandesha-4 in 6th-from-swakshetra indicates a next-step development of principled understanding which is motivated by conflict (6) with the ritual routines and rhythms of one's birth-culture. May quarrel with customary acts of piety, rhythmic folkways, ancient patterns, and established cultural norms or explore alternative doctrinal paradigms in a somewhat adversarial quest for higher meaning.

Tendency to need to break free of the roots culture in pursuit of the next step in one's development, and that next step is often a new paradigm of belief that is not well matched to the parents' cultural grounding.

  • Sherlock Holmes 1859-1930 Arthur Conan Doyle * Chandra-3 parivartamsha Shani-9. Raised with conventional religious assumptions, C-D left the foundational (4) rites in order to pursue what he perceived as a higher level of wisdom, which he detected in the psychic spiritualism of his day.

Mother's cultural roots are deep in a solid moral philosophy. Mother's lineage may include priests or guru-type religious teachers, who have strong opinions on moral and aesthetic matters. However one will not be satisfied with that into which one was born.

One may become a professor or scholar-administrator with explicit critical consciousness of which educational values are being transmitted to the student generation, and why. May be acutely aware of the conflict between society's need for stability via cultural indoctrination, vs. the need of the higher mind to seek a non-traditional path.

Must have religion or life-philosophy in order to feel protected and secure.

Religious (9) properties (4), although these are disputed, conflicted, and problematic due to the 6th-from angle


Is likely to be a well-educated person with solid grounding in his own cultural foundations, yet perhaps tending a bit toward unbalanced judgments or indebtedness in his handling of property matters. At least he may be not much in agreement with the prevailing pedagogy of the day - due to bandesha-4 in argumentative 6/8-from-4th .

bandesha-4 = Guru in bhava-11 * fruits of wisdom from old roots, from teaching, from folkways

bandesha-4 = Zukra in bhava-11

bandesha-4 = Shani in bhava-11

bandesha-4 in Bhava 11

bandesha-4 = folkways, patriotism, parents especially Mother

bhava-11 = marketplace gains, material goals and achievements; social participation movements and economic participation

economic income (11) sourced from matters of bhava-4 including vehicles of transportation, shelters, roots, things underground, real-estate, agricultural lands, fishing, marine lifestyles, homewares, nourishment, schooling, and local rhythms

With bandhesha in 8th-from-swakshetra, the native may be more comfortable in a next-step country than in one's own homeland. Depending on the graha in 4 and in 11, one may be a traveler moving often away from the home base.

  • Way to Wealth 1706-1790 Benjamin Franklin * Budha communication * was a packet-ship commuter (Budha) between the US and the UK during most of his adult life. His wife Deborah hated sea travel and she stayed in Philadelphia. The final decades of Franklin's life (4) were spent primarily in his second home (11) near London. He was a regular boarder there and his landlady had grown fond of him.

There may be a forced transformative even disastrous rift between customs of the childhood home and the rhythms of folk life, as the foundations of life demand movement into the rebirthed identity of a shift in patriotic allegiance, or homeland passport, or loyalty to the mother-motherland and her people ("mother" may include both parents as a protective unit). One tends to rift-and-shift away from the birth roots in a bid to be rejuvenated and reborn.

  • POTUS-pair-04 hostess 1768-1849 Dolley Madison + Zukra * abandoned the customary beliefs and practices of her parents and married outside of her Quaker faith. Although she was forced away from her faith community as a punishment, Dolley survived and thrived in the social freedoms of her new identity. Also like most in her generation, Dolley was raised a British American patriot but shifted her allegiance to the newly formed USA during the catastrophic but eventually successful Revolutionary War.

bandesha-4 in 8th-from-swakshetra = less benevolent for mother's well-being, but gives inheritance of landed property rights and hidden assets.

Mother is somewhat instable because she is prone to quick cycles of identity transformation; however she is gainful and her child benefits from mother's social connectivity.

Mother: gainful remarriage and new identity

  • The mother of Celebrity 1960-1999 publisher JFK-Jr was POTUS-pair-35 editor 1929-1994 Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. The son's nativity bandesha-4 = Mangala in bhava-11 shows that Mrs. K-O morphed her public social identity when she re-married to Mr. Onassis in a contract widely regarded as having a primarily economic motivation. Indeed, she admitted as much saying she was driven by concern to protect her children. After Mr. Onassis died, JFK-Jr 's mother Jacqueline again reinvented herself as a literary editor and partner of a Belgian diamond merchant.

  • The mother of POTUS-pair-40 Just Say No 1921-2016 Nancy Davis Reagan was a struggling actress. Mama abandoned little Ann (later called Nancy) for eight years, to be raised by relatives. After her mother's gainful remarriage to a prosperous politically involved surgeon, Nancy re-entered family life. Via her mother's new social connections (11) Nancy became a social debutante.

bandesha-4 in 8th-from-swakshetra is only slightly auspicious for matters of schooling, vehicles, or property ownership

All these undertakings will be profitable, but one may feel that one does not have much control over the trajectory from one's foundations (such as the college major field) into the actual method of earnings. Parents will provide a legacy of some variety.

one is essentially a teacher (4) who promotes a particular curriculum or science via large assemblies (11). One is generally able to be financially gainful (11) while doing so in fact educating others can be a main source of income. (Other income is often from other items within the portfolio of bandhu bhava-4 such as rents upon landed properties and buildings.)

Good auspice for business in sale of instructional materials or turn-key educational systems. Any relationship between 4 and 11 shows profit from educational activities.

Education industry is a majority employer in USA.

The people and place where one had received one's upbringing, manners, and schooling form a strong constituency within the social network and provide a basis for gainfulness.

Even coming from humble beginnings, one may attend a prestigious academy, college or professional school which forms the springboard of "who you know".

Gains from one's formal education and teaching dharma in the marketplace. May be a business educator; a scientist; or an educator in the fields of technical, social or professional networking.

Gainful capabilities, esp. income from educational products, land/property products or transactions. Promotes a patriotic, conservative persona but may be more of a freethinker than s/he reveals.

Profit from the home culture, roots, foundations, old ways, ancient boundaries, places of settlement, ethnicity, schooling (4) * but because 11 occupies 8th-from-4th, there must be some sudden force of unexpected change which also invigorates a new identity

  • POTUS-30 Price of Freedom 1872-1933 Calvin Coolidge * uttama-Guru-yuti-Budha * Coolidge experienced a number of shocking, unexpected deaths which re-shaped his personal foundations. At age 12 his mother died, his father remarried, at age 15 his only sibling died, and when he was 51 the sudden death of POTUS-29 Teapot Dome 1865-1923 Warren G. Harding changed his life overnight. Shani-4 provides an expectation of austerity and discipline as life bases; he dealt with each shock quietly and systematically.

May handle innovative products or digital technology which transform conventional primary educational settings.

one profits from stimulating professional networking, and providing other connectivity functions which expand the scope of basic socialization. (4th lord in transformative/destructive 8th-from-swakshetra, profits from changing its base).

Must have engagement with a large conceptual system in order to feel protected and secure.

Earnings from landed property:

Public Figures

bandesha-4 = Surya in bhava-12

bandesha-4 = Chandra in bhava-12

bandesha-4 = Mangala in bhava-12


bandesha-4 = Budha in bhava-12


bandesha-4 = Guru in bhava-12 * many meditations, much sanctuary

bandesha-4 = Zukra in bhava-12


bandesha-4 = Shani in bhava-12

bandesha-4 in distant realms Bhava 12 =

dreams / meditation / sanctuary /subconscious / private worlds

bandesha-4 in 9th-from-swakshetra = auspicious.

"confessional" topics bring spiritual healing and wisdom.

bandesha-4 in 12 may own land (4) in a distant country or a country far away from one's homeland (12) if the graha is strong.

  • "O" 1954- multimedia Oprah Winfrey owns the property and buildings and pays for the school (4) operations in South Africa, a land distant from her homeland

  • POTUS-09 Tecumseh 1773-1841 William Henry Harrison was born in 1773 into a wealthy Virginia planter family (his father was a 3-term Virginia governor). However Harrison got a political appointment to the several-weeks-travel distant Indiana Territory. There he developed plantation style farming in the wilderness. His farming ventures were successful.

Otherwise, deepest connections to land and the traditions of the mother's family are plunged into the realm of the subconscious imagination.

The home customs, routine and regular habits of a people, roots and rhythms, may be trapped in a world of ignorance or or dreamy uncertainty; the basis of life shifts as if in a dream.

  • the parents of POTUS-33 Trial and Hope Harry Truman lost their home + farm during his childhood; Truman was a homeless "hobo" for years during mahadasha of Guru ruler-of-3 short travels. Truman has bandesha-4 Shani-8 destruction-and-rebirth. At the onset of his yogakaraka Shani Mahadasha (Shani rules 5 politics) Truman entered a series of public roles. Shani rules 10th navamsha.

May teach in an enclosure such as an ashram, monastery, hospital, prison, or spa. Little social recognition for teaching, parenting, or caretaking behaviors.

Limited identity as a parent or custodian; yet one loves the land patriotically because bandesha-4 has found the 9th from swabhava in a moksha trine of sincere understanding. Works quietly on matters of environmental preservation and care.

May be a traveling educator, teach to the international tourist industry, or be a chaplain in hospital or retreat/reserve camp.

Mother may have been unavailable in the home due to illness perhaps, or an outside social life, or mother was an exceptionally quiet person with little outer life.

  • In addition to Chandra-6, POTUS-29 Teapot Dome 1865-1923 Warren G. Harding had bandesha-4 Shani-12 yuti nichha-Surya + Mangala-yuti-Budha. His mother was a midwife who later qualified as a physician. She was frequently called away on medical business and since Harding's father so consistently indebted the family she had no choice but to go earn cintamani * mani * money in sick rooms (12) using her medical skills.

  • However, like POTUS-04 Constitution of the United States James Madison, POTUS-09 Tecumseh 1773-1841 William Henry Harrison, = bandesha-4 in 12, Harding loved his homeland and served it best via "back-room" dealings.

Alternatively, the foundational education (4) may be established in boarding schools; one may live in a dormitory (12) rather than live at home

  • UK-Duchess 1947- Camilla of Cornwall was sent away from her native England to complete her education at a boarding school in Switzerland

  • POTUS-09 Tecumseh 1773-1841 William Henry Harrison was educated entirely in boarding schools after age eight

Self or mother may have been primarily educated in a protected enclosure such as a boarding school or refugee camp. Quality of the education is high or low depending on the graha.

Must have quiet and solitude, often the sanctuary of private prayer, in order to feel protected and secure.

May signal the dissolution or loss of a foundational, protective structure such as a home or a school.

  • Knowledge of Higher Worlds 1861-1925 Rudolf Steiner was threatened and harassed by Nazi attackers during his Shani Mahadasha. In Shani-Rahu period, his prized wooden educational building (4) The Goetheanum was burned to the ground by Nazi arsonists. Nevertheless the community (Rahu-11) rebuilt, this time using concrete.

  • Banker to the Poor 1940- microcredit Muhammad Yunus * Zukra-yuti-Surya * when he was nine years old, his birth country British India was dissolved.

Generally signifies that the relationship with the mother's folk and their properties, while often helpful due to the trine angle, is invisible and dissolved.

  • UK-PM Path to Power 1925-2013 Margaret Thatcher * uttama Shani-yuti-Budha. Mrs. Thatcher's autobiographical writings make no mention of her mother. According to her, after early teen years, she "had nothing to say" to her mother.

Yet with bandesha-4 in 12, the walls of enclosure both psychic and physical which create a feeling of protection and shelter may dissolve or be eroded by the intensity of one's dreams.

There may be goings-on within the home (4) that are not clearly seen (12) due to the curtained, invisible, enclosed nature of 12. Character of the bandupathi may reveal.

  • Calif-Gov-pair 1955- journalist Maria O. Shriver = ruler of bhava-4 = dhava-karaka Guru-12 representing the first husband. She was surprised todiscover that her husband had been conducting an extramarital affair within their home for many years, indeed enjoying this expansion in their own bedroom (12)


Pema Chödrön in Buddha's Daughters, pages 56–57

"When things fall apart and we're on the verge of we know not what, the test for each of us is to stay on that brink and not concretize.

The spiritual journey is not about heaven and finally getting to a place that's really swell. In fact, that way of looking at things is what keeps us miserable.

Thinking that we can find some lasting pleasure and avoid pain is what in Buddhism is called samsara, a hopeless cycle that goes round and round endlessly and causes us to suffer greatly.

The very first noble truth of the Buddha points out that suffering is inevitable for human beings as long as we believe that things last—that they don't disintegrate, that they can be counted on to satisfy our hunger for security.

From this point of view, the only time we ever know what's really going on is when the rug's been pulled out and we can't find anywhere to land .

We use these situations either to wake ourselves up or to put ourselves to sleep.

Right now—in the very instant of groundlessness —is the seed of taking care of those who need our care and of discovering our goodness."

14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso

  • The Dalai Lama's Little Book of Inner Peace: The Essential Life and Teachings

"...I try to stay joyful.

If we want to work effectively for freedom and justice, it is better to do so without anger or deviousness.

If we ourselves feel calm, and if we act with a sincere motivation, we can accomplish many things in the 30 or 50 active years of our life.

And if some positive results have already been seen from this approach, I think I can say that this is in part because of my commitment to the pacifist cause, a commitment which is motivated by a genuine belief in the brotherhood of mankind.

We are not a very large or powerful nation , but our way of life, our culture, and our spiritual tradition have helped us follow the way of peace even at times of tremendous difficulty and hardship, and have given us courage in our wish to develop love and compassion.

When the time comes, the Tibetan people longs with all its heart to take responsibility for the high plateau, which is our homeland , and to transform it into a sanctuary of peace where mankind will live side by side with nature, in harmony."
