|Psychic validation is the key to feeling good about oneself.|| |
Humans feel good when validated, and humans feel bad when invalidated.
validation = a normal and constant psycho-emotional state of approval, value, worthiness, suitability, appropriateness, inclusion, appreciation, and protection which arises from being infused with values of goodness and core rightness by the persons who are tasked to provide that assessment.
Certain roles have a formal validation requirement built-in, such as professional performance review.
Other roles, notably the life-partner, provide constant informal feedback that can"make or break" the native 's self-esteem.
Jyotisha predictors of validation and invalidation
The psychic fact is that all yin turns to yang, and all yang goes toward yin.
There are times in life which offer ego-boosting validation from highly visible social positioning in the pyramids and networks of people and ideas. There are times of valuable goods and conserved knowledge acquisition; sensual luxury; rich food and drink. There are times of agreement and alliance, of material fruitfulness including creative performance and the birth of children. There are times of clever analysis and persuasive argument, delicious gossip and witty jokes.
There are also times in life, particularly periods of the planetary lords of dushthamsha, which forecast moderate to severe invalidation
|Limits of validation from humans.|| |
Why dangerous? Because human validation is inherently inconsistent and volatile.
All human Jyotisha charts show a role for Ari bhava and lord of 6th bhava as counted from numerous lagna.
Humans are notoriously fickle in their loyalty to people, places, and ideas. A grand declaration of lifetime conviction can easily turn to a trivial dismissal. Except for the mother's bond to her children, no bond of human-to-human loyalty or promise of continuing appreciate will be quite reliable throughout this life.
|The Dharma Taken to Heart
The Wisdom of No Escape and the Path of Loving-Kindness
by Pema Chödrön, p. 86
|"The dharma should really be taken to heart, not just used as a way to get cozy and secure or to continue your habitual pattern of self-denigration or your habitual pattern of striving for perfection. |
Initially you may find that you use the dharma as you've always used everything else, but then, because it's the dharma, it might occur to you that you're using it to denigrate yourself or to become a perfectionist.
"Oh my goodness! I'm using this to make the world into love and light or to make it a resentful, harsh place.”
Shukra = kalatrakaraka + dhanakaraka = the primary and most obvious karaka for social-material value in the Jyotisha nativity.
Shukra's two primary containers of value =
Shukra problems = social invalidation
Take care to understand the implicit and explicit approval of 'worthiness' one seeks to obtain from the life-partner, from the boss, the government, the religious teacher, the parents, the school-master, the neighbors, the political electorate, the publications industry, news media, stock-holders, customers, colleagues, boards of directors, students, children, bankers, in-laws, co-workers, and the public as a whole.
What sort of value are these designated judges and approvers likely to be capable of recognizing?
Naturally, their default values are material = Shukra + Shani-yuti-Budha. The two central gauges of value are money-price and partner-attractiveness, followed closely by social and economic rank, and finally by communicative and logical mentality.
However, after the initial psychic surge of social-material well-being which energizes the native with a feeling of worthiness traceable to the unconditional love of the mother, will the"high" feeling of super-worthiness be maintained?
Response to social invalidation :
Probably not, because:
|The psychic fact is that all yin turns to yang, and all yang goes toward yin.|| |
Great pledges of fidelity in partnership (Zukra) and great hoards of collected items (Zukra) are sensually enriching and feel utterly wonderful in the temporary moment.
So when the sense-pleasures cease, the life partner becomes critical or abusive, or the bank account dwindles, is the person spiritually invalid?
It is said that the definition of insanity is to do the same action repeatedly each time expecting different results. After several experiences of invalidation (sometimes quite devastating ) it might be much more pragmatic to stop depending on these very limited utility outside sources of validation . Consider drawing primary validation from within.
Do you really want your self-esteem to be emotionally dependent on this comically fickle cycle of getting"stuff"?
What goes up must come down and indeed if Rahu-Ketu are involved the up-down cycle can be perilous to mental and emotional equanimity.
Luckily, there are
