randhresha-8 secrets, undisclosed truths, conditions of identity transformation such as fleshdeath, mysterious monies, clandestine relationships, unexpected eruptions, emergency, hidden knowledge

The present era confronts those incarnated upon Earth's surface with conditions of dramatic transformation and regenerated identity.

During the Earthly lifetime, everyone can expect to create a narrative of trauma and healing, sudden changes, and rebirth. These are exciting times when few can rely on the time-honored rhythms and customs of the past.

It is a time of vibrant self-reinvention which responses to revolutionary change. Periods of the randhresha may be punctuated with occasions of disaster, upheaval, and even terror along with profound healing rejuvenation and emergence of new identities for old containers.

The randhresha, ruler of randhra-bhava-8, provides information about the circumstances of trans-form-ation as the container of the fleshbody moves through a series of varying energetic frequencies that destroy and rebirth the psychological self, even while keeping the physical body largely intact.

mysterious identity-transformation agenda penetrates into Bhava 1 = physical appearance, social personality, vitality, movement, personality-shell.

The most influentially identity-transforming and trauma-healing environment = kalpa-sthana-1 , the physical fleshbody itself. One becomes an iconic figure representing revolutionary change, secrets, upheaval, and regeneration of the identity. The physical self-reinvention may also enforce a powerful thrust of internal identity change.

  • POTUS-15 Oregon Treaty James Buchanan was an antebellum-era (1830-1860) gay man whose identity needed to be disguised for professional reasons. Buchanan's primary partner was a Senator from Alabama and the Vice-President under POTUS-14 Bleeding Kansas Franklin Pierce . Correspondence from the era showed historians that their relationship was hidden to the general public but known to their immediate circle.

Agency of eruption, emergence, upheaval and rebirth

Potentially dangerous or sudden, unexpected eruptions of force, social-material or psycho-emotional, find agency in the figure of the flesh-body.

  • POTUS-11 Manifest Destiny James Knox Polk * randhresha-8 Budha in bhava-1 * dig-bala . Polk was raised in harsh wilderness conditions. At age 13 he endured a brutal frontier surgery for urinary stones with no anesthetic and ensuing sepsis which made him sterile. Following his (partial) recovery, he was reborn (by his account) and filled with the desire to study law. Previously uneducated, he began school at age 14. He married well, maturing into an unlikely governor of Tennessee and an even more unlikely POTUS-11.

randhresha-8 = partner's treasury may define the native's personality

  • POTUS-01 American Revolution George Washington = uttama-Zukra-1 + Vriddhipathi-11 Shani. Washington married a well-capitalized widow Martha Custis. She had inherited substantial Virginia tobacco plantations from her first husband. Martha was a highly capable businesswoman and negotiator who funded his military role in the American revolutionary war while steadily increasing their wealth via multiple plantations run by hundreds of slaves. Uttarabhadrapada-lagna Washington was the wealthiest POTUS in history, followed closely by Uttarabhadrapada-lagna JF Kennedy.

  • Federalist Papers 1755-1804 Alexander Hamilton + Shani-yuti-Budha + Mangala. Hamilton married Elizabeth Schuyler, the daughter of a wealthy fourth-generation Dutch family in upstate New York. Her family's assets and social connections greatly facilitated his career.

  • POTUS-pair-42 + USA Secy State 1947- Hillary Clinton + Surya-yuti-Budha

If randhresha-8 = Guru-1 or Zukra-1,

Karaka for abbreviated longevity. If Rahu-8 a long life. Not always a shortened life but rather an enthusiasm for risk-taking which encourages sudden transformation of the fleshly shell. However randhresha-8 does not predict the timing of death, only the environment

randhresha-8 in 1 indicates the possibility of surprising encounters with the conditions of flesh-death, either as victim or perpetrator . Sudden unpredictable attacks or sudden meetings with eruptive force

  • India-PM 1944-1991 Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated on 21-May-1991 in a public place, whilst campaigning for a fellow politician, by a woman agent of his political adversary via lethal explosive

randhresha-8 in radical lagna tends to conceal secrets.

  • If randhresha-8 Guru, under the guise of philosophy

  • If randhresha-8 = Chandra, under the guise of family welfare

  • If randhresha-8 = Shani, under the guise of professional duties

Identity (1) from secret knowledge (8) or from self-destructive behaviors (8). When fortunate, self-destruction is followed by self-rebirthing.

randhresha-8 = shad-ashtaka 6-8 from swakshetra = social distrust and physical discomfort, sometimes undiagnosed disease

The main value of inheritance from the parents and other immediate ancestors = physical appearance

randhresha-8 Randresha in bhava-1 = a particularly active, pragmatic, and productive placement in life; yet the deeper sources of one's enthusiasm for life are quite mystical.

During periods of the randhresha-8 , appearance or the social identity may undergo radical change

  • Satyagraha 1869-1948 Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi during 20-year Zukra Mahadasha

  • USA-Sen-Mass 1932-2009 Teddy Kennedy * Zukra-yuti-Rahu. His life changed dramatically during the famed drowning of a female assistant in the 1969 Chappaquiddick River incident during Mangala-Zukra period. Rahu-Zukra also resides in 8th-from-Chandra.

  • UK-Duchess 1947- Camilla of Cornwall underwent a dramatic increase in public visibility and received a higher social rank during her mahadasha of randhresha-8 Shani

  • Superman 1952-2004 tetraplegia Christopher Reeve * Zukra-1 for his Thula-Vishaka-lagna, Zukra Mahadasha age 15-35, the height of his handsome leading-man career

perhaps through rejuvenating or reconstructive surgeries

The planetary lord of transformative self-destruction and rebirth has entered the bhava of the anna-maya-kosha = food-body, physical body.

The fleshly appearance = " iconic" for massive changes. Socially identified with large-scale change, social transformation, crisis and healing, secrets and taboos, creation and destruction of identity, matters of the turning of the cycle of rebirth and death. A healer and transformer with shamanic qualities.

Iconic figures with papa-graha randhresha-8 residing in bhava-1 must often function in conditions of sudden, inexplicable change.

  • Foursquare Evangelist 1890-1944 Aimee Semple McPherson * Chandra-yuti-Shani. Her evangelical-entertainment ministry was during some years extremely popular and journalists could not restrain the superlatives. At other times she was viciously accused of fraud, harlotry, and perjury inter alia. Her extensive charities in times of widespread poverty were first deeply welcomed, then shuttered for legal infractions Ultimately she changed the face of Pentecostal Christian worship in the USA, normalizing (Shani, normal) faith healing events, extending the worship services for 12+ hours (Shani, time) and legitimizing (Shani) both women preachers and divorced women within the faith community.

  • Formula-One 1980-2013 test driver Maria de Villota experienced a sudden massive brain injury whilst testing a high-performance racing car. At great personal cost, she forever changed the perception that women were unsuited to high-speed, high-impact sports such as automotive championship racing.

  • Avant-gardiste 1933- Beatle-pair Yoko Ono + Mangala-yuti-Ketu * experienced the sudden murder of her husband and co-parent ,precipitating a change in her worldwide iconic status

One may be constantly aware of the turning of the cycle of death-and-rebirth, and always prepared to exit the fleshly vehicle , after a lifetime of effecting rebirth for others.

randhresha-8 = Shani in bhava-1 imposes leadership responsibility to hold confidential information or tantric secrets which could be dangerous to the social order.

randhresha-8 = Chandra in bhava-1 * emotional volatility, mother in a state of upheaval

  • General Electric 1847-1931 Thomas Edison had a Chandra-Mangala yoga in radical Mula lagna that produced a range of effects, from extraordinary wealth to a crazy mother. randhresha-8 matri-karaka Mula-Chandra yuti ruler-of-12 Mula Mangala. Edison's mother was mentally ill with episodes of physically violent (Mangala) psychosis throughout her life, intensifying as she got older. Her behavior escalated to the point where, after their children were adults, her husband (Edison's father) abandoned his wife to protect his own safety. Correspondence shows that Edison loved his mother dearly, but Edison sided compassionately with his deserting father in full recognition of the circumstances. Edison also fully supported his widowed, elderly father's immediate remarriage to father's 16-year old housekeeper.

randhresha-8 = Mangala in bhava-1 * Identified with the conditions of death via sudden movements, and high-energy transformations of the identity:

  • Totem and Taboo 1856-1939 neurologist Sigmund Freud Mangala-1 Kanya. Freud's theories of sexual primacy upset the moral and scientific indoctrination of several generations of social regulators.

randhresha-8 = Budha in bhava-1 * dig-bala * explain, describe, instruct on the process of regeneration, rebirth, forced new identity

randhresha-8 = Guru in bhava-1 * dig-bala

randhresha-8 = Zukra in bhava-1 = diplomatic alliance in revolutionary settings

randhresha-8 = Shani in bhava-1 * sudden unexpected upheaval; catastrophic identity change; rebirth - in context of government and public responsibilities (Shani)

8th-from-swakshetra = comfortable and pleasing results for secret sources of empowerment for tapping the wellsprings of ancient hidden knowledge; transformative healing through secret sexual relationships; and mystical allure in therapeutic and tantric initiation environments.

randhresha-8 in bhava-1 - not an easy placement, as the lord of shad-ashtaka* 6-8 from lagna inhabits the lagna.

Social personality and physical appearance is identified with behaviors of destruction, regeneration, and rebirth. one is engaged lifelong with deep cycles of transformation , living with the threat of annihilation but simultaneously aware of one's capabilities for rebirth."Nine lives."

The threat may be physical, social, mental, or spiritual - usually all of the above. Period of randhresha-8 narrates the drama of destroying the old and creating the new. one 's actions during periods of randhresha-8 may easily be construed as "self-destructive". Which they are. But in the bigger picture, this native is experiencing a death of old behaviors and a rebirth into a new life understanding.

randrapathi in lagna:" I am my hidden wealth, my healing capacity, my sudden forced changes, and my secretive behaviors."

Healing with healing crisis : secret dealings, privileged access, tantra, hidden matters, in-laws, circumstances of death. one is deeply identified with their role as a knower of powerful secret knowledge.

The social identity is infused with the qualities of deep healing, transformation, confidential information , secret intimacy, loss of morality, forbidden lands, obscure processes, wealth through inheritance,

emergencies, disasters, catastrophic change, rebirth , specter of death, taxes."

For the Mesha lagna, Kuja-1 = both very athletic (1), and frequently injured (6)

Ready to Rejuvenate

When FDR fell in love with another woman, he and Eleanor did not divorce (although they suffered much emotionally from the terrible discovery). Eleanor offered a divorce and Franklin refused.

  • Rather, they re-crafted (Budha) their destroyed relationship. After separation, each pursued additional secret (8) lovers.

  • On the basis of their existing trust in each other's values and abilities (and considering the significant wealth of their joint marital assets =8) FDR asked Eleanor to continue to support him in a role which some historians have characterized as a covert [8] second president.

  • She became a vitally important (although often unreported = 8) international ambassador and public relations "cover-up" (8) for FDR during his nearly 12 years of presidency, at a time of catastrophic change (8) (Depression, WWII) in the land and in the world.

From Planets in Signs and Houses, by Bepin Behari (p. 149):

POTUS-26 National Parks Theodore Roosevelt randhresha-8 Guru in lagna. "TR" ate huge meals and drank a legendary amount of cows-milk at each meal. A vigorously active man, nevertheless he ate far in excess of needs, and suffered numerous health-related problem-sets in consequence of this self-destructive behavior.

"The lord of the eighth house occupying the ascendant produces ill health and disease.

  • It makes the individual frustrated in life, critical of everything .

  • He may however unexpectedly receive some monetary reward from the state ."

randhresha-8 = Surya in bhava-2

Randhresha-8 = Chandra in bhava-2

Randhresha-8 = Mangala in bhava-2 , the lifepath has the potential to effectively destroy the family of origin (2) who are the original "keepers"

  • POTUS-07 Indian Removal Act Andrew Jackson * Shani-yuti-Mangala experienced the death of his Scots-Irish father while baby Andrew was still in utero. While a pre-teen, he witnessed both of his elder brothers' deaths fighting (Kuja) in the Revolutionary War. Finally his mother died while caring for the war-wounded, when Andrew was 13.

  • Principia Mathematica 1872-1970 Bertrand Russell + Surya yuti uttama-Rahu. Russell experienced the death of both of his parents and the destruction of the family unit before he turned five.

However her own son was kidnapped from her and sold by her father into servitude; Mangala dirshti to Ketu-5.

Randhresha-8 = Budha in bhava-2 suggests that the transformative, often catastrophically regenerating, energy of bhava-8 manifests in the spoken and written word (2, language)

  • Knowledge of Higher Worlds 1861-1925 Rudolf Steiner lectured widely on a radically new view of the structure of reality. Many of his lectures were transcribed and became published books.

The words (2) that he used to convey the nature of the transformation were taken mainly from the King James Bible, taught to him by his mother (Chandra, old way) but given a new political interpretation (Surya, new rebirth).

One may cause the public or the immediate environment to react with terror of sudden change. One may be associated with social upheaval expressed through a taboo or illicit sexual relationship.

  • Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt was criticized for his extramarital affair with Mighty Heart 1975- drama-activist Angelina Jolie; six children

  • Golf 1975- champion Tiger Woods * legendary sex scandals

  • Way of Zen 1915-1973 radio philosopher Alan Watts Taoist-Anglican priest . Watts was criticized for his pattern of extramarital affairs.

If the randhresha-8 is less benevolent, potential for social obloquy through indiscretion.

The main value of inheritance from the parents and other immediate ancestors = accrued historical, linguistic, arts, and cultural values . This is a particularly financially privileged placement in life.

7th-from-swakshetra = benevolent for secret sources of empowerment for consulting and advising relationships; transformative healing through a variety of sexual relationships; and mystical allure in the courtroom and other adversarial settings.

Broken promises affecting family life and values, explained but not forgiven. An agent of sudden change through their power to articulate transitions in historic cultural values through speech and facial expression .

randhresha-8 migrating into 2 indicates that the death (or divorce) of the first spouse leads to a remarriage, usually rather quickly, to someone already known.

  • Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt + randhresha-8 Budha in 2

  • UK-Prince 1948- Charles of Wales randhresha-8 Shani in 2.

  • within a few months of the birth of his first son with a serf-mother on his family's estate, War and Peace 1828-1910 Leo Tolstoy married his higher-caste legal wife

In a divorce situation often there is "someone else" waiting to become the second partner. In the case of widowhood, the second spouse is not necessarily an active extramarital interest but rather (and especially with conservative Shani) a historic friend or acquaintance.

  • [randhresha-8 ] destroys the creative initiative of the individual,

If randhresha-8 = an otherwise good graha, one may be blessed with a tremendous self-earned wealth through manipulation of one's image in publications such as books, movies, magazines, and other media materials .

There is much acquisition or materialization of the earlier training, perhaps a blooming of the genetic predisposition toward self-announcement and keep one's personal narrative in the public eye.

randhresha-8 secrets, longevity, upheaval, shock, sudden new identity, disaster, healing, unexpected uprising force, masked money, hidden knowledge

Randhresha-8 located in 10th-from-8 may be remarkably supportive for purpose of gaining respect and decision-making authority in career and professional hierarchies (depending upon the specific graha involved). However, one is most likely to serve a primarily an agent of unexpected change, threatening innovation, or representative of the constant movement of the cycle of birth and death, toward the hierarchy. Thus one may become recognized and successful in duties while at the same time being eyed as a disruptive agent of frightening or unwanted change.

  • Archbishop of Canterbury 1950- Rowan Williams + uttama-Chandra-yuti-Budha proposed radical innovations in Anglican practice such as ordination of women bishops. He was roundly criticized and received a great deal of pushback, but the change was put in motion however slowly.

  • England-Queen 1533-1603 Elizabeth-1 was not only a woman leader during the Age of Meena (an awful 2160 years during which to be a woman) but also she inherited an economy in a state of financial disaster (8) and a degree of chaos sufficient to destroy the entire rulership, including court intrigue involving secret murders, torture, and piracy hoards. She succeeded in cleaning it up but only by the judicious use of piracy, murder, and terror in her own methods.

  • France-Queen 1775-1793 Marie Antoinette * Chandra-yuti-Guru represented the excitement of a revolutionary new era and innovative new styles, but also her dramatic lifestyle (5) within the royal and political world was destroyed by the reign of terror (8).
  • POTUS-02 Thoughts on Government John Adams attorney and legal writer, political and literary agent of the overturning of British Colonial government and the birth of the new American Republic

in Bhava 5 performance arts, politics, genius, brilliance, romantic love, celebrity, royalty, poetry, theatre, children, speculative ventures, games, amusements

Children (5) may be carriers of secret knowledge, hidden assets, or sudden uprisings of force (8).

When fortunate, self-destruction in a time of crisis followed by a new identity, flourishing of the new intelligence in the old container; self-rebirthing in dramatic performance.

  • England-Queen 1533-1603 Elizabeth-1 was variously called the Virgin Queen and other less flattering epithets. She held power for 45 years as a single woman who had lost her hair, her complexion ruined by smallpox, who loved the theatre, with a preference for the company of pirates. However Chandra is the randhresha-8 therefore her mother was quickly liberated from this earthly vale even while Elizabeth herself lived a very long life by the standards of her era, especially for a woman (age 68)

Agency of eruption, emergence, upheaval

Potentially dangerous or sudden, unexpected eruptions of force, social-material or psycho-emotional, find agency in the figure of the children, politicians, genius intellects, royalty, celebrities, financial speculators, gamblers and gamers

  • Archbishop of Canterbury 1950- Rowan Williams + uttama-Chandra-yuti-Budha was considered by those whom he upset to be a force of disruptive innovation and sudden, unexpected change. For the Anglican Church hierarchy and its worshippers, he served as a voice of intelligence, creativity, and nobility of spirit (Surya) which came to loggerheads with the stony, Shani-ruled megastructure of the established Church. His own Shani-8 prevented a revolutionary schism within the faith communion, but his departure was welcomed as a sign of "return to normal" by the conservative faithful.

randhresha-8 in 10th-from-swakshetra = a supportive placement for everything except children. (Complications of fertility is mainly an issue for females).

  • The agents of mystery and magic migrate into the house of brilliant performance and creative genius.

Confidential information defines the political career. Political secrets.

political or literary career much helped by hidden sources of funding

hidden funds (8) subsidize political activities (5)

literary genius for mysteries including creative song-writing

  • "Da Vinci Code" novelist Dan Brown secret forces, hidden wealth

  • Genesis 1951- musician Phil Collins songwriter of forced romantic breakups

Sudden, intensely transformative, and potentially catastrophic changes in the definition of one's relationship to children, performance arts, politics, and the creative genius, caused by discovery of a secret.

The main value of inheritance from the parents and other immediate ancestors =creative intelligence, talent in gaming and speculation, and political genius.

Re: children, may be associated with miscarriage or childlessness if other factors corroborate

Mystical gamesmanship.

This is a particularly intriguing placement related to very high levels of speculative intelligence.

One is a gambler but usually of a noble sort.

An aristocratic politician (5) with inherited money (8).

  • Celebrity 1960-1999 publisher JFK-Jr

There is inherited genius (5) which gives a mystical (8) ability to comprehend the essential divine spirit of a thing (8) even when the material form may be inscrutable.

randhresha-8 in 5 = a forward thinker and often very successful in professions which require a highly refined capacity for extreme * indeed mystical * confidence in high-stakes games such as world politics

Also very large-scale speculative investments.

Especially good wealth results from excavating secret reserves in mining either of the Earth lands and its oceans or of the vast terrain of the human psyche.

The lord of transformative self-destruction and rebirth has entered the house of creative intelligence, 10th-from-swakshetra.

  • comfortable and pleasing results for secret sources of empowerment for obtaining respected leadership positions ;

  • transformative healing through holding public trust, managing one's reputation;

  • and tantric allure in high-profile social positions.

Leadership becomes a performance art. Privileged, secret relationships with politicians, entertainers and speculators.

Lord of 4th-from-5th occupying bhava-5

The lord of Kuja's house gives rather peculiar circumstances in swabhava of Surya. Mangala and Ravi are friendly graha and the 4th-from angle is stable, educated, and secure.

However, the qualities of randhresha-8 are frightening to those who do not understand what is happening. (Actually, the cycle of death and rebirth it is frightening to everyone, just slightly less so to those who are familiar with its purpose.)

As a general rule, the lord of bhava-8 causes sudden, forces changes wherever He goes. The eighth lord is only superficially destructive. What randhresha-8 is really doing is taking the essential energy from one physical container, and moving it into a new physical container . That is the essence of tantra.

The eighth lord carries behaviors of" emergency"," sudden movement", and" hidden forces ". Kuja is a hunter and He tracks the mysterious movements of the animals whose very bodies will be - if captured and killed - Transformed into food.

Animal killing and regeneration of human life through animal meat is a harsh reality, but the human species is largely chained to it. Even in vegetarian cultures the movement of life force through the plant kingdom is shocking and mysterious. Sometimes the food is there - sometimes it is not. Many secret signs and omens must be observed if the human wishes to have a steady rejuvenating supply of food.

Romantic overs are infused with the energy of secrecy and transformation. It may be necessary to keep the love affair hidden from view.

randhresha-8 can also destroy the possibility of love affairs entirely, choosing instead to transfer the vital energy of romance into some other container, such as service to a higher cause, or celibate religious prayer.

Strange transformative experiences related to children, politics, speculation, literary and performance arts. One tries the common path in these pursuits, yet is deflected against one's will on to another path.

Dangerous conditions of first birth to one, or secrecy surrounding the first child. Circumstances may require casting a shield of secrecy around the children (e.g. to prevent kidnapping of celebrity children.)

Often an early miscarriage before successful childbirth. (The cycle of birth and death must turn before the karma is cleared out.)

If randhresha-8 is particularly virulent, children may be denied due to circumstances beyond one 's control. If children are denied due to randhresha-8 in bhava-5 (and not some other Jyotisha reason) then one is likely to achieve great wealth as the life-force is re-directed toward bringing inheritances developments.

Dangerous conditions of first childbirth to one, or secrecy surrounding the first child. Circumstances may require casting a shield of secrecy around the children (e.g. to prevent kidnapping of celebrity children.)

May be difficulties for the children unless the randhresha-8 is a highly dignified graha

  • Microsoft 1955- philanthropist Bill Gates randhresha-8 = the auspicious swakshetra Zukra paired with a dignified uttama-Shani; Mr. Gates is the father of three healthy children.) Often randhresha-8 in 5 provides an early miscarriage, before successful childbirth. (The cycle of birth and death must turn before the karma is cleared out.)

  • POTUS-02 Thoughts on Government John Adams * randhresha Chandra resides in bhava-5. His children inherited the alcoholism, disease, and depression patterns which ran through his and his wife's families. Even his distinguished son POTUS-06 American System John Quincy Adams suffered from angry depression and remarkable marital difficulties.

Planets in Signs and Houses, by Bepin Behari , p. 149

"Unless the planet is well fortified by association with or the aspect of benefics,

the lord of Eighth in the fifth house is inauspicious for children and the mental equilibrium.

  • The individual seldom begets a child,

  • and even if a child is born, it becomes wayward and rebellious, a burden to the family.

In this situation however there is a possibility of the individual acquiring substantial wealth,

  • especially if he is denied children."

randhresha-8 = Surya in bhava-6 * sarala yoga * hidden power from politics of imbalance

randhresha-8 = Zukra in bhava-6 * sarala yoga * * hidden power from pleasurable service; addictions


randhresha-8 = Shani in bhava-6 * sarala yoga * hidden power from dutiful service, chronic animosity

Although potentially a rather self-destructive yoga with implications for self-medication leading to hidden addictions, in many cases, randhresha-8 in Bhava 6 = Sarala Yoga = surprising benefits

  • from lawsuits, illnesses, exploitation , servitude, pollution, impoverishment or war (6)

  • from secrets, longevity, hidden money, hidden knowledge

  • Sherlock Holmes 1859-1930 Arthur Conan Doyle maintained a 9-year relationship with his paramour while waiting for his ill wife to die. Upon her death, the secret couple married. His reputation was protected from scandal (also Chandra-Zravana) and his hidden lifestyle successfully masked.

disagreement, conflict, dis-ease, drugs, exploitation, accusations, logical argument, divorce, "victimology"

  • POTUS-18 Civil War Ulysses S. Grant + nichha-Budha made a career from his success in winning the bloodiest, most hideous war in US history, in the most gruesome style imaginable. His post-presidential writings about the gory details of the war made him even more popular.

when these sufferings are caused by:

  • occult phenomena, secretive behaviors, hidden monies, secret knowledge , psychological and physical trauma, widowhood, emergencies and disasters, shocking discoveries, or sudden change (8)

    randhresha-8 = agent of self-destruction followed by self-rebirthing.

Step-1 = karmic inheritance of responsibility for acting upon the materials of 8 = occult phenomena, secretive behaviors, hidden monies, trauma, widowhood, shocking discoveries, or sudden change

Step-2 = handle these dangers in the container of 6 = litigation, accusations, war, divorce, medical treatment,

  • if Kuja = randhresha-8 , the disagreement becomes aggressive

  • if Shani = randhresha-8 , the disagreement becomes chronic

Life's most brutal shocks such as natural disasters and emergencies, sudden widowhood = weakened.

8th-from agency of eruption, emergence, disaster, upheaval, rebirth -- enters bhava-6

Potentially dangerous or sudden, unexpected eruptions of force, social-material or psycho-emotional, find agency in the figure of the mother's relatives, physicians, pharmacists, servants, accusers, complainers, polluters, the ill, the victimized and the exploited

randhresha-8 = 11th-from-swakshetra = profits from keeping secrets, handling disasters, or making a shocking discovery.

Debt (6) from spouse's wealth (8) or from secret sources (8). Karaka for financial loss due to spousal wealth (8) achieved via in divorce (6) payment from one .

These otherwise catastrophic upheavals being weakened will manifest only as petty disputes, divorce rather than spousal death, chronic illness rather than massive disruption such as intervention surgery or a sudden stroke.

  • That may be true. But the downside of randhresha-8 in 6 is inherited illness.

  • Everyone has an inheritance. In the case of randhresha-8 in 6, one may inherit a subconscious lineage identity which subtly supports " identity" with the conditions of illness, poverty, toxicity, and chronic victimhood.

  • On the plus side, especially with papagraha and particularly with Professor Shani as the randhresha-8 , one may inherit a medical or human services ministry, and accept the responsibility for clinical care of the sick and the polluted.

The main value of inheritance from the parents and other immediate ancestors = addictions, internal argument leading to social conflict, and patterns of inequity, imbalance, toxicity, or exploitation in relationships.

For the conscious native, inheritance of medical, military, or human service ministry identity.

Sudden, intensely transformative, and potentially catastrophic changes in the definition of one's relationship to medicines and physicians, servants and animals, human service ministries, police and military, caused by the discovery of a secret.

Mystical imbalance.

This is a particularly difficult placement related to generational poverty , inherited medical imbalance which leads to alcoholism and drug addictions , as well as families historically involved in exploitation and crime .

If the lord is an otherwise good graha, one may elevate the purpose of the unsavory associations and develop a ministry of service to carriers of the victim-mind. One may be a skilled physician or social worker dealing with "hidden (8) or socially denied patterns of inherited self-destruction.

One may also serve as a shockingly sudden transformative (8) agent in relation to the repeating miseries (6) of the underclass.

When Budha = randhresha-8 , one however otherwise successful in life may be prone to articulate but highly conflicted self-destructive inner argumentation which is essentially an inherited narrative, passed down the family line.

The lord of transformative self-destruction has entered the house of imbalance, conflict, enemies, debts, disease.11th-from-swakshetra, results which improve over time (upachaya angle).

comfortable results for secret sources of empowerment for gains of income; transformative healing through large networks of friendly association; and mystical allure in in huge gatherings such as rallies, music concerts, fayres and melas.

A dushthamsha lord residing in a dushthamsha generally gives favorable outcome . There are both easy and difficult implications .

Debt is destroyed; randhresha-8 in bhava-6 builds wealth quickly, native is not constrained by debt, native is gainful. However illness is increased, due to some negative habit acquired in the attempt to manage life's stress-conflict overload.

Powerful healers and secret methods will restore one 's health. After much transformative struggle (wisdom-building) enemies are destroyed - but only after one realizes that the enemies are projections of unwanted aspects of his own self.

Overall prognosis is good, but the transformative processes at work are energy-consuming and complex.

randhresha-8 in bhava-6 or bhava-12 is considered to weaken the effect of randhresha-8 .

randhresha-8 in 6 = Sarala yoga = a Viparita (no-parity, unequal, "crooked") Raja Yoga that gives short-term opportunities for comfortable and pleasing results at the moment when others suffer bad circumstances. Often what is a terrible crisis for another becomes the key to one's own betterment.

If a malefic+ randhresha-8 in 11th-from-swakshetra can be quite gainful, with source of the gain being confidential or secret dealings in negative relationships and materials. May be a spectacular healer whose tantric knowledge confronts evil directly, and who gains thereby.

Behind-the-scenes manipulators of war. Confidential usurious money-lending. Weapons dealers, prostitution rings, drug dealers, usurers. May be operating on an international scale, such as agents of large banks/rich countries who arrange impoverishing loans to poor countries. Realism and secret knowledge brings them success through negative dealings.

If benefic, victim of exhausting struggles resulting from Deep Denial. Undiagnosed disease and misplaced confidence. Financial illness, medical illness, social illness - all present in this native's life, yet he rejects the reality of evil. Wants a miracle cure, but does not see his own negativity operating in the disease process.

Patient's denial prevents physicians from finding the cause of illness. Whatever value the spouse contributes to the joint assets of marriage is drained off in medical expenses, payments to charlatans, false advocates, physicians and others falsely claiming to have access to secret cures. Native suffers by denying the reality of his own internal imbalances which are manifesting through .


  • Because bhava-6 = Budha's house of argument and criticism, one can expect to receive abundant verbal and written criticism for one's identity-destroying behaviors (8), particularly behaviors which force the"death of marriage" i.e., decision to divorce = a major cause of loss of social identity.

  • Scandal generated via one's choice to enforce transformation creating crisis and emergency.

  • Secret-knowing agents who assist in one's destruction-and-rebirth process are also criticized - e.g., secret amour, confidence-keeping attorney, court-appointed investigators, psychiatrist, surgeon, and detective.

  • One may be accused of crimes (6) related to confidential and secret matters; however due to Sarala Yoga, criminal litigation for secret dealings cannot proceed.

Material success due to intelligent ability to utilize the energy of conflict = Sarala yoga

Positive opportunities for advancement in the fallout from the identity-destroying crisis instigated during the period of randhresha-8 . Indeed one's re-created life will .

Furthermore, when the shocking qualities of randhresha-8 are softened by entering the drawn-out, accusatory and litigious environment of disagreeable bhava-6, one can typically escape the catastrophic scale of changes associated with bhava-8. Instead, one may proceed to the next phase of identity development with relative ease, such as easy movement into a second marriage after widowhood, easy recovery from disasters, and easy healing after surgery. Sarala yoga does not eliminate the upheavals and rejuvenations of bhava-8 but rather it transforms those quick-change conditions into powerful vehicles for success.

For wives, Zukra is not the indicator of the husband's personality and material situation. Rather, Zukra indicates the social agreement of marriage and its material outcomes.

randhresha-8 in 6 does not destroy animosity in this lifetime.

Depending on the number and character of graha in bhava-6, one may remain an object of contempt by many. The more graha in bhava-6, the more agents who complain and criticize. If there are several graha in bhava-6, each will cause its own variety of illness, poverty, jealousy, and suspicion.

  • However with randhresha-8 in 6 every broken contract (6) has positive transformative empowerment (8).

  • Divorce and dishonored business contracts are oddly beneficial. one has very minimal truck with police, military, and will usually also avoid the military draft or at least avoid combat duty.

A challenging placement for marriage and for any type of contract negotiation. The partner may have hidden interests. Applies not exclusively to the marriage partner but broadly to all negotiations and bargaining partners.

  • POTUS-44 Audacity of Hope Barack H. Obama + Budha. Responsibility for arranging agreements with agents who had secretive, hidden agendas.

The most influentially identity-transforming and trauma-healing environment = yuvati-bhava-7 , hidden liaisons and camouflaged environments. One becomes a mystical figure representing revolutionary change, secrets, upheaval, and regeneration of the identity.

The physical conditions of sudden upwelling of unexpected energy may also enforce a powerful psychological thrust of internal identity change.

May be an expert in tax (8) law (7)

"Secret deals"

Potential for a positive outcome with nodal intervention. Randresha in bhava-7 is generally uncomfortable regarding the ideal state of open trust and disclosure between marriage partners. Yet for other types of partnership (business, professional) it is possible for this yoga to produce an upside .

  • Entertaining 1941- multimedia Martha Kostyra Stewart was ill-affected personally by her husband's secret extramarital affair which ended in a non-amicable divorce. However her public reputation was not harmed by the indignity of her divorce; in fact, the public perceived her as a victim (Rahu-1-Kanya) of his secrecy. Kuja-yuti-Ketu in 10th-from-10th provides a "teflon" disengagement with the otherwise damaging Mangala. For her Kanya lagna, Professor Mangala is the challenging ruler of 3-8 and normally Kuja's presence in 7 would signal social disrespect; however Ketu dissolves this 3-8 identity-recycling potential. In another relationship, Martha Stewart kept secret the dealings of her financial partners, and even under pressure of a felony conviction would not reveal their transactions (3).. She was briefly imprisoned (12) but her reputation was preserved and within a few years of her return to commercial business, her entire media empire was restored (8 rebirth).

randhresha-8 in 12th-from-swakshetra = vitiation, causes loss-of physical vitality and social personality identity.

  • POTUS-21 Civil Service Chester A. Arthur maintained many hidden bargains, deals, arrangements within the corrupt political machine of New York City.

Reduces the public accountability of the marriage contract and alliances of all varieties (political, commercial) because one is engaged in a secretive and rapid cycle of self-destruction-and-rebirth.

When conditions in bhava-7 are comfortable for the randhresha, the self-destruction is followed by a rebirth which completes a cycle of self-transformation; marriage can survive this cycle with proper therapeutic support.

Marriage and contractual agreement (7) is transformed by secret knowledge (8) or self-destructive behaviors (8). When fortunate, self-destruction is followed by self-rebirthing. Typically too unstable for lasting marriage but marriage may become a container for tantric, transformative process.

  • If yuvatipathi-7 = Zukra, partner's wealth contributes substantially to the value of the marriage.

Sudden, intensely transformative, and potentially catastrophic changes in the definition of one's relationship to the spouse and alliance partners, caused by discovery of a secret.

  • Ford Motor Co. 1863-1947 Henry Ford randhresha-8 Zukra in 7 yuti Shani yuti karmesha-10 Guru. The forces of public dignity are strong including karmesha-10 Guru and dig-bala Shani-7. Ford was a workaholic who conducted a long-term intimate relationship with his office secretary (nichha Zukra randhresha-8 in 7) and a son was born into the union. Ford kept his relationship to this second family entirely secret from the public, although he spent time with his second family every day.

  • Spouse has many hidden interests, and the in-laws have much control over the destiny of the marriage contract.

  • Generally considered uncomfortable due to spouse being unduly influenced by their family history; yet financially this position is a plus.

The main value of inheritance from the parents and other immediate ancestors =ability to build contracts and negotiate and agreements - even with highly unlikely or hostile partners.

Mystical alliances.

The lord of transformative destruction has entered the house of balance, contracts, marriage alliance and agreements.

comfortable and pleasing results for secret sources of empowerment for private imaginings and fantasies; transformative healing through knowledge of one's immediate parallel life; and mystical allure in the bedroom arts.

Marriage relationship or other important social contracts and promises may become vitiated through forbidden or secret dealings. Mysterious, confidential, and potentially dangerous activities enter the realm of marriage.

randhresha-8 = Shani in bhava-7 * dig-bala * spouse may be engaged in secretive, yet socially responsible and dignified public (Shani) behavior

randhresha in the yuvatibhava is nearly always a difficult situation, and if the graha that is randhresha-8 be also a non-partnering graha such as Surya or Mangala, the challenge increases. randhresha-8 = Surya in bhava-7 * self-dramatizing spouse, around whom others are expected to orbit. Pitrikaraka Surya indicates the father.

  • POTUS-44 Audacity of Hope Barack H. Obama * Surya-Karkata is strong by rashi and Surya rules 8. POTUS-44 struggled throughout his childhood with the hidden biofather. However Budha dud supply other father-figures, particularly the maternal grandfather. Surya-yuti-Budha. Budha ruler of 6-and-9 suggesting that his father was a university person (9) as well as one having conflicts or crimes (6).

This creates difficulty for the spouse, who assumes partial responsibility for one's behavior by way of the marriage contract. It may be difficult for the spouse to understand and accept the randhresha-8 in 3's native 's secret commitments.

It is easier to not be legally married with this position. If one is married there may be high turnover.

  • Among the Believers 1932- V.S. Naipaul self-reported to his biographer that whilst remaining legally married to his wife of 41 years, they had a dysfunctional sexual relationship. He consorted with prostitutes and took numerous lovers, some of them for decades. He became monogamous only upon a second marriage in his nonage.

The change forces at work are too strong to allow long-term stability of agreements.

Spouse may have secret, taboo dealings. Mate may have connections to hidden sources of funding such as anonymous donors to charities.

For the spousal character+ randhresha-8 in 7 need not = a nefarious quality; it can indicate skillful management of confidences and that invaluable ability to keep a secret .

  • mate of POTUS-17 Reconstruction Andrew Johnson Mrs. Eliza McCandle Johnson was a secret-keeper. She 'looked the other way' when Johnson produced three children with their African house slave Dolly, and she never referred in public to his alcohol abuse. However, she normally did not accompany Johnson on his political appointments such as governor and president; nor did she entertain even at the Whitehouse when she came down fro the second floor quarters only once. She preferred to remain behind her mask.

Assets expected from death or divorce from spouse, will remain with the spouse. Destruction of social balance, equity, harmony, agreement.


So long as there are no graha residing in randhrasthana, randhresha-8 in 7 places randhresha-8 in 12th-from-8 thus debilitates randhresha-8 and thereby extends the longevity. The most extreme extension occurs with L- Shani-7.

  • UK-PM 1874-1965 Finest Hour Winston Churchill died aged 90 despite lifelong alcoholism, a grueling and relentless work schedule, and habitually courting danger via close personal involvement in several violent wars. Marriage difficulty undoubtedly arose due to randhresha-8 in 7, but with Shani-7 dig-bala dignity there is loyalty to the vow (if not the the mate personally)."Keep calm and carry on" is the unchanging (Shani) order of the day.

bhratrupathi-3 in bhava-7 = cannot agree on any alliance or decision for a sustained period of time; sudden, disruptive changes in contracts and agreements causes the re-imaging and re-configuring of relationships.

Secret forces overwhelm existing alliances. The spouse is an agent of transformation, destruction, and rebirth.

Planets in Signs and Houses * Bepin Behari , p. 150

  • Easy Rider 1936-2010 Dennis Hopper * Budha randhresha-8 in 7 + Surya-yuti-Mangala. He married and divorced 5 times. During divorce #5, already on his deathbed, he complained continuously and bitterly of the wife's poor behavior. However Mr. Hopper was a wealthy man with a long artistic career - perhaps a benefit of Kuja.

"In the Seventh Bhava, the eighth lord will make the marriage partner ill-mannered, and may lead to several marriages .

  • Even the relationship with one's business partners is soured.

But i f the planet is associated with Mars ,

Graha = born into randhra bhava becomes subject to the fast spinning of the cycle (8) of self-destruction and rebirth (8).


Undisclosed assets may be discovered. When the randhresha is strong and comfortable in bhava-8, an inheritance may be expected.

If bhava-8 is free of the drishti of Shani, graha which are generally comfortable in the swabhava of Mangala are the friends and neutrals of Mangala:

  • Surya-Simha
  • Chandra-Karkata
  • Mangala Mesha and Mangala-Vrischika
  • Guru-Dhanushya and Guru-Meena
  • Zukra-Thula and Zukra Vrishabha
  • Rahu has the possibility of inheritance depending on Rahu's ruler

A pair of inheritance positive graha in 8 may particularly signal hidden endowments:

  • Simha-Surya-Guru is usually an endowment from the father's lineage
  • Karkata-Chandra-Guru from the mother's lineage
  • Meena-Zukra-Guru from a sister's lineage
  • Vrischika-Mangala-Guru from a brother's lineage.

Budha is inimical toward Mangala; one may handle the hidden assets of others in a commercial capacity, but the outcome is not an inheritance per se. (it might however be a robust business profit, depending on L-11).

Neither Shani-8 nor Ketu-8 confer financial inheritance. Shani-8 confers a long life and much responsibility for hidden matters. Ketu-8 disperses material forms. In a spiritualized nativity,Ketu-8 removes the barriers which normally block occult perception. Ketu-8 can confer a spiritual inheritance in the form of free access to occult knowledge (8).

The most influentially identity-transforming and trauma-healing environment = randhra-sthana-8 , hidden liaisons and camouflaged surroundings. One becomes a mystical figure representing revolutionary change, secrets, upheaval, and regeneration of the identity.

The physical conditions of sudden upwelling of unexpected energy may also enforce a powerful psychological thrust of internal identity change.

If randhresha-8 Shani in 8, typically a very long life.

  • UK-PM 1874-1965 Finest Hour Winston Churchill randhresha-8 Kumbha-Shani-8. Despite lifelong alcoholism, a grueling and relentless work schedule, and close personal involvement in several dangerous, violent wars, Churchill died aged 90.

The speed of change-of-form may feel terrifying.

Conditions of death (8) contribute a defining element to the life story of the father.

Matters of the bhava that are ruled by graha situated in 8 are controlled by this fast-turning, re-cycling , identity-destroying and regenerating hidden life force.

Effects of any graha in fast-transforming bhava-8 can be frightening, secretive, occult, mysterious, hidden, shocking magical, rejuvenating and changing-changing-changing often with a sudden thrust of unexpected force.

Excellent placement for occult mysteries, discovery of hidden things, and revealing of secrets.

Agency of eruption, emergence, upheaval in bhava-8

Potentially dangerous or sudden, unexpected eruptions of force, social-material or psycho-emotional

Eruptions find agency in the figure of the in-laws, secret liaisons of self or mate, healers, surgeons, occultists, mystics, detectives, disaster-responders, emergency workers, revolutionaries , secret operatives,

those who spin the wheel of birth and death.

  • Autobiography of a Yogi 1893-1952 Swami Yogananda

Destruction and rebirth (8) from utilization or realization of secret knowledge, from discovery of hidden truth or hidden resources, from occult practices (8) or via self-destructive behaviors (8).

  • Mangala-Mesha = self-destruction by fire.

The main value of inheritance from the parents and other immediate ancestors = Access to hidden and mysterious reservoirs of knowledge and magical practice, as well as the skills to conduct secret relationships.

Sudden, intensely transformative, and potentially catastrophic changes in matters of magic, tantra, emergencies, healing transformations, confidential information, surgery, joint assets of marriage, one's in-laws, and secret money, caused by discovery of a secret.

Empowered Randrapathi-8 may be an extraordinary healer who is able to consciously turn the cycle of death and rebirth, moving efficiently from form to form while maintaining a vital connection with one's own life force intelligence.

  • Autobiography of a Yogi 1893-1952 Swami Yogananda

Lacking adequate understanding of evolutionary forces, however, one is likely to find oneself suddenly widowed or divorced

suddenly at death's doorstep due to an eruption of sudden force provoking violently transformative events. Mystical magic, sudden change-of-form. Poof!

or have other rapid and unpredicted shocking changes o the physical and personality identity .

periods of randhresha-8 = Sudden transformation of identity (not death):

  • USA Sen-AZ John McCain l ost Nov-2008 POTUS election to POTUS-44 Audacity of Hope Barack H. Obama. McCain Kumbha lagna + Makara Chandra. Budha = randhresha-8 from lagna [self, personality] + rogesha-6 from Chandra [women].

  • Nov-2008 = penultimate period of Budha-Budha-Guru, with only six months left until the onset of his intensely transformative period of randhresha-8 Budha-Ketu. for McCain, the intensity of the randhresha-8 destruction-and-rebirth capabilities is temporarily doubled because Budha rules Mithuna Ketu.

  • McCain's political Budha = L-5. During the first sub-sub periods of Budha/Budha he ran a fairly strong political campaign based on a large, financially privileged Republican support network. In Budha/Budha/Rahu period, his handlers introduced a "wild card" (Rahu) vice-presidential running mate as McCain's proposed governing partner of the highest office in the nation: the publicity-loving, inexperienced, barely qualified governor of Alaska, Mrs. Sarah Palin.

  • Sen. McCain's Budha suffers from painfully close proximity between his analytical, strategic-thinking uttama-Budha and his Yogakaraka -nichha-Zukra. McCain's two wives have provided overall support for his role in national politics. However, as always with the nichha-Zukra, McCain has always had personal trouble with women.

  • During the final weeks of the campaign, soon after Mrs. Palin's introduction, McCain's (second) wife Cindy suddenly appeared in public wearing an expression of irritated exhaustion. It was clear that she felt her aging husband had served his country enough; she wanted him to spend his final years in their family home, not in the White Bhava. Mrs. McCain talked publicly about her drug addictions (nichha-Zukra) while appearing to not support her husband's political interests at all.

  • Suddenly, an inarticulate running mate combined with drug-recovering wife plus a collapse of the national economy plunged the normally clear-spoken Mr. McCain into a nearly dumb state! His lead in the polls disappeared almost overnight.

  • In April 2009, his destruction-and-rebirth "I surrender" Budha-Ketu period arrived on schedule, finding Mr. McCain not only not being president, but quite completely finished with a super-busy talk-and-travel lifestyle that had dominated his existence for 30 years!

Just like that!

  • [note: of course in the big picture there MUST be supporting conditions to enforce such a sudden reversal in context of a very prominent national career. In Nov-2008 gochara Shani was transiting his Kumbha lagna, completing a long and difficult sade saati. gochara Rahu had just finished transiting his Kumbha lagna and was destabilizing his Makara Moon. Clearly the man was exhausted.]

Dushthamsha lord residing in a dushthamsha generally gives good outcome. There are both easy and difficult implications.

The lord of transformative self-destruction = enters the circumstances of death and sudden, forced changes.

Transformative self-destruction

The end of life may be shockingly fast, with little or no warning . May come via accident or rapid-onset of terminal illness. Whether the graha that occupies randhrasthana suggests a rapid exit at an old age (Shani) or a rapid exit at a young age (Chandra, Surya, Mangala, Zukra, Budha) or in middle age (Guru) it is nevertheless a decisive agency which predicts minimal preparation time.

1st-from-swakshetra. Pure and intense results for secret sources of empowerment for the physical body (athleticism, yoga mastery; muscular tone); transformative healing through the surgical skill; and tantric allure in material appearance of the social personality.

From Planets in Signs and Houses , by Bepin Behari, p. 150

"When the lord of the Eighth Bhava occupies its own sign in the eighth,

  • it fortifies the life force of the individual

  • and gives him special skill and extraordinary intelligence for unraveling hidden matters.

The marriage partner however will prove unfaithful,

  • and the native himself flouts all established decorum."

longevity, hidden money, hidden knowledge of randhresha-8 secrets enters Bhava 9 . One becomes a Guru of Secrets and high-priest of confidential information.

Covert and classified activities of the father, world travel, philosophy, universities, temples, sacred scripture, priesthood, wisdom-teaching

Although this placement does somewhat mystify the personality of the father, it has numerous benefits. Taxation is normally not a burden, secret liaisons of the spouse if they occur at all are rarely secret, and religious or philosophical doctrine has a rejuvenating effect. The third marriage partner, if any, may be overly prone to undisclosed activity, but even so one may have knowledge of this (2nd-from-8 = knowledge of the masked) and be well apprised toward fortunate decisions.

  • On Golden Pond 1937- drama-commerce Jane Fonda successfully reinvented her personality and social profile via ideological and doctrinal methods. Although many Americans felt that she should be prosecuted for hidden alliances with the Communist North Vietnamese leadership during her "Hanoi Jane" phase, she claimed to have been motivated by purely humanistic beliefs (9) and was never sued or harmed.

The most influentially identity-transforming and trauma-healing environment = dharma-sthana-9 , received doctrine, theories of reality, ideologies, universities, principles of dharma. One becomes a professorial or philosophical figure representing revolutionary change, secrets, upheaval, and regeneration of the identity. These teachings may also enforce a powerful thrust of internal identity change.

Religious Revelation

Wisdom and fortune (9) from inheritance (8) or from secret sources (8).

Sudden, intensely transformative, and potentially catastrophic discoveries in matters of one's father, guru, professor, and religious affiliation, caused by revelation of a secret.

Father, father-figure, and religious teacher-preachers

Also priests of the temple and officiants of university culture who are empowered to approve new professors, such as academic advisor and dissertation approval board.

Father and Father-Figures (9) keep many secrets (8). Randhra bhava should be strong to produce tangible evidence of the father's mysterious knowledge; otherwise the secrets remain hidden. Naturally, other graha in 9 accompanying the randhresha-8 -in-9 will alter the prognosis.

randhresha-8 = Surya in bhava-9

father keeps secrets about politics, theatre, literature, genius.

randhresha-8 = Chandra in bhava-9

  • POTUS-pair-37 Pat Ryan Nixon * her father was involved in numerous failed mining operations

  • Open Society 1930- capitalist George Soros * his father Teodoro escaped a Soviet prison camp and was an underground (8) anti-fascist activist while working above-ground as an attorney

Father keeps secrets about hidden children, occult doctrines, esoteric philosophy, masked priesthood, cloaked wisdom.

randhresha-8 = Zukra in bhava-9

father keeps secrets about partners, alliances, sugars, money, pleasures.

randhresha-8 = Shani in bhava-9

father keeps secrets about government, regulations, laws of time and space, age, skeletons, structures. One's own religious dogma is typically strict and principled, but some features of one's belief must remain hidden.

  • the father of Lights Out 1968- singer Lisa Marie Presley was the celebrated American singer Elvis Presley. Although he was somewhat handicapped by a lack of education, Mr. Presley studied hidden cosmology (her 8 = Kumbha).

  • The father of Calif-Gov 1938- Jerry Brown * Surya-yuti-Shani * Shani-9 parivartamsha Guru-8 * was the former California governor Pat Brown. Both father and son were keepers of many (Guru) confidences.

If the randhresha-8 is damaged, misuse of confidential information and potential for illicit (8) abundance (9) via secret relationships and hidden treasuries. Lucky (9) taxable-money (8) situation; generally avoids most taxation.

Agency of eruption, emergence, upheaval in bhava-9

Potentially dangerous or sudden, unexpected eruptions of force, social-material or psycho-emotional, find agency in the figure of the father, guru, professor, priest, world travelers, teacher-preachers, panditi, university and temple personnel.

randhresha-8 tantric and magical knowledge can be successfully used in the positive development of religious understanding, but this this utility is only available to those with adequate philosophical education.

The nature of the upset (8) affecting one's relationship with the father or philosophical teacher, or possibly the entire belief system, is further described by the karaka.

The most fundamental signification is the randhresha-8 carries the force of death and rebirth (8) into bhava-9, so that the premature death of the father or guru shapes one 's consciousness in this life.

Chandra randhresha-8 randhresha in 9 = father's (or guru's) hidden Own mother, or father's hidden liquids, secrets of the tides, the ocean

Mangala randhresha-8 randhresha in 9 = father's (or guru's) hidden male sexual practices; father's identity with military, penetrative engineering, and athleticism. Mangala-9 is Particularly difficult for the father, with a tendency to parental abusiveness or other dominating behavior conducted in secret and managed with denial on the part of the father.

Zukra randhresha-8 randhresha in 9 = father's (or guru 's) hidden-tantrik alliance, or dad's alcohol/sweets issues (or both).

Budha randhresha-8 randhresha in 9 = father's (or guru's) hidden publications or reports, writings; can also be secret sexual relationships

Guru randhresha-8 randhresha in 9 = hidden father and hidden husband.

  • The father of UK-Queen 1837-1901 Victoria-1 died when she was 8 months old, and her husband's premature death famously thrust her into mourning for the rest of her life.

Shani randhresha-8 randhresha in 9 = father's (or guru's) hidden rigidity, vulgarity, ignorance

For the younger person or one of otherwise inadequate apprehension, effects of randhresha-8 in 9 are more likely to emerge as socially negative along the lines of covert, perhaps illicit behaviors of the father, or discovery of misbehavior of the guru or secret and contradictory implications of the orthodox religious teachings.

It is the signification of secret or mysterious knowledge which is encoded in sacred scripture that is potentially the most beneficial to the sufficiently educated one.

The main value of inheritance from the parents and other immediate ancestors = religious wisdom, including wisdom about the value of ritual performance regardless of underlying belief.

This is a particularly beneficial placement. randhresha-8 in 9 indicates an inherited (8) connection to religious education, based in the parents' values and the parents' (perhaps hidden) relationships with religious teachers, ceremonial vows, and sacred temples.

Mystical religion.

  • If randhresha-8 = an otherwise good graha, one may be blessed with a secret knowledge of wisdom-paths.

There is much acquisition or materialization of the earlier training, perhaps a blooming of the genetic predisposition toward wisdom-knowledge which is physically inherited from the parents, during the mahadasha of the randhresha-8 .

randhresha-8 = a hidden function in life and this placement will not ordinarily assist the public acknowledgement of one's religious or moral teaching roles, except in specifically tantrik, esoteric, or magical subjects.

randhresha-8 in dharma bhava reduces one 's inclination to indulge in public religious ceremonies but increases the power of magical teachings.

When Guru = randhresha-8 in 9, one, or one's father may be prone to association with tantrik religious lineages that blur the distinction between esoteric and popular religious knowledge.

Randhresha-in-9 is a socially dicey but exciting position which can result either in a fraudulent priesthood or in a great awakening through self-destruction and rejuvenation. One may not be accepted into the conventional temple priesthood but may have a doctrinal or ideological empowerment nonetheless. Tendency to undermine the pomposity of university and globalist ideologies.

The lord of transformative destruction has entered the house of the father/parents, guru, priesthood, cultural ethos, religious liturgy , and higher wisdom. 2nd-from-swakshetra: comfortable results for secret sources of empowerment for food, family, face, and finance; transformative healing through (recovery of) family historylineage; and tantric allure in speech expressions of value and reckoning of mystical history.

Deep cycles of disruptive transformation affect The father . Father's deepest understanding of magical forces and transformative movements affects one . Sometimes this understanding is conceptually articulated and sometimes it is simply rhythmic, intuitive, and expressed in a lifestyle that accommodates catastrophic changes." Often the father is not long-lived.

randhresha-8 in bhava-9 = the father is self-destructive in some fashion, according to the character of the graha.

  • Lights Out 1968- singer Lisa Marie Presley = father Heartbreak Hotel 1935-1977 Elvis Presley; his death at age 42. His self destructive behavior = over-eating, indicated in his daughter's nativity via her randhresha-8 Guru in bhava-2, with her own Guru's dispositor being a weakened Makara Surya in her maraka bhava-7.

Father and guru are social changes agents, overt or covert. Conventional religion is destroyed, and in its place a more tantric philosophy based on secret teachings .

Father's life is short due to direct influence of the destroy-and-rebirth randhresha-8 . Very broad view of large-scale atomic, cellular, personal, social, and historic change cycles. Not deceived by change of form - thus, less impressed by public sacrifice and religious liturgy (although rarely disrespectful of it).

One may become a guru within a privileged lineage, or abandon the priest/professor role altogether. In the most comfortable case, native teaches privileged insights into longevity/circumstances of death, the nature of empowerment and change, and the cycles of birth and death.

From Planets in Signs and Houses , by Bepin Behari (p. 150):

"In the ninth house,

  • the lord of the eighth may make the individual to lose his parents early in life.

He may lack moral integrity ,

  • coveting the financial wealth or spouse of others."

randhresha-8 randhresha in the communicative 3rd-from-swakshetra. A volatile public image (10) associated in the popular view with revolutionary transformation, dangerous conditions, unexpected upheaval and sudden changes of identity (8).

randhresha-8 secrets, transformative agency, longevity, hidden assets, hidden knowledge

The most influentially identity-transforming and trauma-healing environment = karma-sthana-10 , governance of the social order, social leadership, director, legislator. One becomes a leader or executive figure representing revolutionary change, secrets, upheaval, and regeneration of the identity. These responsibilities may also enforce a powerful thrust of internal identity change.

  • A Room of One's Own 1882-1941 Virginia Woolf * exposed much of her struggle with bipolar condition via her literary writing, and this revealing (8) at a personal level (her Chandra-88) eventually stimulated a public discourse about intelligence, creativity, and mental illness at a social level (10)

randhresha-8 randhresha occupying Bhava 10 = highest public visibility, leadership roles, governance, regulatory responsibilities, reputation and respect, law and legislation, the social order

  • Super Brain 1946- Dr. Deepak Chopra * nichha * + Mangala + Guru-yuti-Budha. Serves as a widely recognized (10) icon (Surya) of transformative, rejuvenating Ayurvedic medical tradition. Budha rogesha-6 brings in the medical knowledge.

  • India-PM 1889-1964 Toward Freedom Jawaharlal Nehru * nichha-bhanga * Zukra + Budha. His cluster of graha-in-10 also receives incoming drishti from Shani-8 and Rahu-6

Gives a capacity to re0invent and rejuvenate the career, often emerging into different social-leadership roles

  • Pakistan-PM 1953-2007 Benazir Bhutto + Surya *followed a remarkable trajectory of leadership visibility, holding a variety of roles punctuated by imprisonment and exile

Typically this placement benefits the native. Via agency of lord of 11th-from-10th one is able to gain employment in a government office.

Unless one is a world-class healer with a loyal organization supporting the healing program, can be resented by bureaucrats since karmasthana belongs to Shani who does not like change, especially not the deeply transformative change which is delivered by the randhresha-8 .

Secrecy in Conduct of Government Responsibilities

Agency of eruption, emergence, upheaval in bhava-10

Potentially dangerous or sudden, unexpected eruptions of force, social-material or psycho-emotional, find agency in the figure of the government officials, boss,legislators, regulators, social policy makers, judges, the long arm of the law.

randhresha-8 is all about profound and unexpected, sudden upheavals and it governs the turning of the cycle of life and death.

One may do an excellent job in promoting change of viewpoint from the top levels of visibility and even earn the regard of the rank-and-file workers at the bottom of the pyramid, but the co-executives and others charged with the sober business of ordering society may not take well to the secrecy and interest in hidden things which characterizes the behavior of the randhresha-8 .

Outside of the tantric specialties or perhaps the medical discipline of surgery, randhresha-8 in 10 may not receive much praise from bureaucrats. It is a signification of numerous job changes with a Shifting public image that may erupt within the full range of unexpected criticism or remarkable acclaim.

A highly visible and identifiable symbol or exponent of occult knowledge , revelation of the forbidden, agent of public terror or scandal

  • France-Pres-pair 1967-singer Carla Bruni Sarkozy's extramarital (8) affair du coeur with France-President 2007-2012 Nicholas Sarkozy became suddenly visible to the international public. randhresha-8 being also dharmesha-9 Shani and the worldly-power uttama-Mangala in residence of randrasthana, the relationship was converted to legal marriage.

  • My Fair Lady 1908-1990 Rex Harrison * Shani-yuti-Chandra lawful randhresha-8 Shani-10 is less prone to public irregularity and even his Chandra-10 is mainly protected by parivartamsha with karmesha-10 uttama-Guru-2. Nevertheless Harrison endured a nearly-career-ending scandal during Shani bhukti of Chandra Mahadasha when his extramarital lady-love committed suicide (8) after spending the evening with Rex. Also recurring scandal after the suicide of one of his six wives; and a permanent taboo-association affecting his reputation stemming from his life habit of "very married" philandery (8, hidden liaison).

Public Emergencies

Leadership responsibilities (10) = a container for secrets (8) and may be a site of self-destruction (8).

  • POTUS-pair-41; POTUS-43 mother Barbara Pierce Bush served as the official secret-keeper for countless officers of high government, including perhaps one very explosive secret. Zukra + Mangala, she was pleasant in the duty.

If the graha randhresha-8 is favorable, the self-destruction is followed by a self-rebirth.

Sudden, intensely transformative, and potentially catastrophic changes in the definition of one's relationship to government bureaucracy and established, regulated social institutions, and the order of Law. Changes are caused by discovery of a secret

The main value of inheritance from the parents and other immediate ancestors = ability to achieve highly respected and honorable positions of public leadership.

Mystical leadership.

  • The lord of transformative destruction has entered the sthana of leadership, public respect, career and profession.

  • 3rd-from-swakshetra, results which improve over time * upachaya angle.

One may become a communicator and leader in situations of large-scale catastrophic, transformative change.

From Planets in Signs and Houses , by Bepin Behari , p. 150

  • King of Nepal 1945-2001 Birendra Bir Bikram Shah = generally considered a weak king. He was granted all traditional respect by the masses; yet his governance was considered so apathetic that educated observers feared impending revolutionary uprisings (8).

"In the tenth house, the lord of the eighth provides the individual with employment in government

  • but his professional efficiency is low,

    • and he is not well spoken of.

    His mother dies early in his life."

BPL note: Behari is citing effect of the randhresha residing in 7th-from-4th as outcome = early death of mother. This single indicator of a specific outcome is too weak to make a prediction based on only one factor.

As Shri B.V. Raman often said, this or any other predicted outcome must be corroborated by several other indicators. Behari naturally employs the same caveat.

Almost overnight, the English assets of the Roman Church were redefined as assets of the English Crown. Henry effected the nationalization (Rahu-4 appropriation of properties) of the churches, cathedrals, monasteries and their extensive lands. Thus all the rents, royalties, and profits from those lands entered the English economy (11).
