Crop Circle in Oxfordshire Field, England 2009. Length 600ft.

attributed to ~~Satyagraha 1869-1948 Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi

"Keep your thoughts positive, because your thoughts become your words.

  • Keep your words positive, because your words become your behaviors.

  • Keep your behaviors positive, because your behaviors become your habits.

  • Keep your habits positive, because your habits become your values.

Keep your values positive, because your values become your destiny."

14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso . (2001).

  • Answers: Discussions with Western Buddhists by the Dalai Lama

    José Ignacio Cabezón (Ed.)

"What is the role that consciousness plays in the process of reincarnation?"

"In general, there are different levels of consciousness.

The more rough, or gross, levels of consciousness are very heavily dependent upon the physical, or material, sphere.

Since one's own physical aggregate (the body) changes from birth to birth, so too do these gross levels of consciousness.

The more subtle the level of consciousness, however, the more independent of the physical sphere ,

And hence the more likely that it will remain from one life to the next.

But in general, whether more subtle or more gross, all levels of consciousness are of the same nature."

~~ Twilight of the Idols 1844-1900 Friedrich Nietzsche One ought to hold on to one's heart; for if one lets it go, one soon loses control of the head too.”
Mental Target

When Budha and the graha in 3rd from Budha enjoy parivartamsha yoga, beneficial mental results are expected.

3rd-from-Budha is a less benevolent location for matters of mental health. Any planet in 3rd-from-Budha will show that upon which the thoughts "land", upon which the thoughts hover and linger.

3rd-from Budha * mental traffic

3rd-from-Budha * Stress zones * may include:

"3rd"angle = controlled by Mangala, and Mangala has a permanently adversarial relationship with Budha.

Any graha in 3rd-from Budha can produce mental over-exertion . Too much thinking - even excessive positive thinking - can lead to mental exhaustion from the endless chatter, restlessness, Anxiety, frayed nerves.


of all the seven graha which can occupy this place -- Chandra, Mangala, Guru, Zukra, Shani, Rahu, or Ketu -- Shani in 3rd-from-Budha poses the most serious challenge to the enjoyment of life.

Shani in 3rd-from-Budha = negative thinking, scarcity thinking, mental oppression by the rule of law, unduly hard mental work, bitterness, undue concern with heavy consequences, and significant psycho-mental depression.

Graha in 3rd-from-Budha may indicate a repeating loop narrative which interrupts in the reasoning process.

  • the native experiences excessive attention to the signals represented by the rashi, bhava, and tenant graha in 3rd-from-Budha.

  • Consequences include distracted thinking, depressed thinking, compulsive thoughts, etc. according to the nature of that graha in 3rd-from-Budha.

Graha in 3rd-from-Budha may give excellent results in other departments of life, but those graha which occupy 3rd-from-Budha will cause some disruption of the free-moving, openly associative, neutral thinking process.

It is easier for the mental process to function when it is unencumbered by strong feelings or opinions. 3rd-from-Budha represents a content area of the thought-world which is somewhat"stuck"and upon which the mentality tends to fixate. 3rd-from-Budha contains mentalized material which is incompletely resolved from parallel life or early childhood experience.

If graha occupy 3rd-from-Budha, the karaka and lordship significations of those graha gain special importance (for ease or for difficulty). Strong feelings and opinions, compulsive or habitual loops, and other draining or distracting concerns will be generated by the graha(s) in 3rd-from-Budha.

Even a very capable and aware thinker will recognize the"brain drain" effect of the graha 3rd-from-Budha in their mental life.

Vimshottari Dasha effects

The strongest effect of this mental-drain phenomenon occurs during the mahadasha of Budha, during the bhukti of the graha(s) which occupy 3rd-from-Budha.

  • During these periods the native should be especially vigilant to maintain optimum mental health.
  • papagraha in 3rd-from-Budha may produce mentally challenging results, but sukha-graha in this angle are also somewhat problematic.
~~ A New Earth 1948- spiritual explainer Eckhart Tolle The mind exists in a state of "not enough” and so is always greedy for more. When you are identified with the mind you get bored and restless very easily”

Surya in 3rd-from-Budha

Surya cannot occupy 3rd-from-Budha.

Chandra in 3rd-from-Budha


***

Not truly problematic, but a noticeably sensitive mental type.

Mental fluctuations like the ocean tides, one's feelings determine the rhythm of the reasoning process.

Presuming that Chandra is well-disposed, can be an asset in integrated mental-emotional process, so long as the native can register but does not dwell on the feelings.

Native may not be able to effectively discriminate between rational conclusions and intuitive perceptions. (These are both valid ways of thinking but they are different and should be consciously distinguished for clarity and appropriateness of judgment.)

Plus side: highly effective psycho-emotional communications with the fundamental emotional realities of humanity.


Mangala in 3rd-from-Budha


competitive Kuja in 3rd from Budha

Literary, reporting, announcing, messaging, and communication themes of championship, warrior, action, movement, armed struggle, vigorous challenge, physical-sexual pursuit

  • Gitanjali 1861-1941 Rabindranath Tagore * Thakur yuti Ketu * Kuja-10 parivartamsha Budha-8

  • France-Pres 1890-1970 Mémoires de Guerre Charles de Gaulle * tales of war

  • SoAfrica-Pres 1918-2013 Long Walk to Freedom Nelson Mandela * political-ethnic conflicts

  • Yentl 1942- drama-song-activist Barbra Streisand * kuja-6 parivartamsha Budha-4 * political-ethnic conflicts

  • On Golden Pond 1937- drama-commerce Jane Fonda * multiple autobiographies * political-gender conflicts

  • The Tower 1922-1928 William Butler Yeats * fight for Irish Independence

  • POTUS-45 Play to Win Donald Trump * commercial-political competition

Typically "outspoken" and content of the speech may focus on articles of combat or pursuit,

such as human sexuality, athletic competition, warfare, weaponry

  • POTUS-33 Trial and Hope Harry Truman * Guru-yuti-Kuja-nichha. Truman made the announcement that USA had dropped a hydrogen bomb on Hiroshima-Nagasaki which killed or maimed millions. He managed constant public communication about the end of WW-2, care of returning soldiers, weapons factories, etc.

  • UK-Princess of Wales 1961-1997 Diana Spencer campaign against land-mine weapons; also advertising her husband UK-Prince 1948- Charles of Wales ' sexual adventures

  • England-King 1491-1547 Henry VIII Tudor notorious for conflict with religious authority and sexual (marital) practice

Repetitive narrative of anger, dwelling on thoughts of domination and winning.

If Kuja is ill-disposed, winning = revenge. Otherwise, winning via vigorous competition.

Tends toward repetition of the adolescent thought process oriented to activities of simple physical sport and Animal-instinct sexual pursuit

May generate the "sore loser" complex; thoughts promote intolerance of weakness and exaggerated heroism; "Napoleon complex"


POTUS-33 Trial and Hope Harry Truman famously said:

"[The American President] has to take all sorts of abuse from liars and demagogues.… The people can never understand why the President does not use his supposedly great power to make 'em behave. Well, all the President is, is a glorified public relations man who spends his time flattering, kissing and kicking people to get them to do what they are supposed to do anyway.”

Guru in 3rd-from-Budha


***

Generous, guiding Guru in 3rd from Budha

Literary, reporting, announcing, messaging, and communication on broad and inclusive themes of philosophy, sacred teachings, scientific theory, political ideology, divinity, broad-scope, conceptual discourse, dogma, preaching, professorship, global humanism


The communicative style reflects the adversarial relationship between Guru and Budha. Budha is neutral toward Guru but Brihaspati intensely dislikes Professor Budha .

The reason for their inimical stance is that these two graha compete for the same audience. Guru wants to preach about religion and higher law (Dharma) whereas Budha wants to chat about superficial daily thoughts. They both try to use the same mental apparatus.

A general outcome of Guru in 3rd from Budha is that the person may talk mercurially about philosophy of life and higher truths, the delivery vehicle is too chatty (Budha). Also the communicative motive is too much mundanely instrumental, depriving The message of religious profundity, except in rare cases.

Guru generates a repeating narrative of hope and expansion whether there is a foundation to support that expansion or not.

Topics of global travel, world culture, education, university, philosophy and doctrinal narrative

  • Be Here Now 1931- Baba Ram Dass * professor, inspirational text author, spiritual guide

  • Lord of the Rings 1892-1973 J.R.R. Tolkien moral values narrative in the fantasy world and its ethnicities

  • War and Peace 1828-1910 Leo Tolstoy

Minding other people's business, trying to save the world, Tends toward repetition of the compassionate and global worldview, mind frequently returning to the"big picture".

Tends toward repetition of the quest for broad, simple solutions to complex questions, "Pollyanna complex", positive and cheerful but may seem like an ideologue.

Guru the Multiplier expands and extends the scope of everything in His territory. 3rd-from-Budha often indicates writing including songwriting.

  • Thriller 1958-2009 Michael J. Jackson * Guru-yuti-Rahu * not only multiplies (Guru) but also amplifies (Rahu) the communications production. Jackson wrote a colossal number of songs with detailed plans for ensemble (3) stage performance.

  • Golf 1975- champion Tiger Woods the first black world championship golfer maintains a narrative of cheerful inclusiveness and generosity which has completely changed the social culture of golf, including relaxing of the racist policies of many white country-clubs. He is involved in a multiplicity of partnership ventures and product agreements (7).

Zukra in 3rd-from-Budha


***

Diplomatic, harmony-seeking Zukra in 3rd from Budha

Literary, reporting, announcing, messaging, and communication on themes of relationship, sensual pleasure, balanced arrangements, marriage, alliances, trust, bargaining, contracts and promises, material well-being, acquisition, fine arts and music, luxuries, women

Repeating narrative of sensual pleasures, concern with superficial attractiveness and petty social manners, worries about being liked.

Distracted focus due to sense-pleasure data too much interrupting the reasoning process.

Mind frequently returning to alliances, relationships, financial wealth, sense delights, one's ability to receive validation for one's own beauty and attractiveness, arts and music.

Bhava indicates the mental target:

Zukra in 1 = the mind often dwells on concern with personality, maintaining a gracious appearance

  • 14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso

  • POTUS-01 American Revolution George Washington + Shani

  • Mighty Heart 1975- drama-activist Angelina Jolie

  • Steppenwolf 1877-1962 anti-Nazi Hermann Hesse was an accomplished fine-arts painter and aspiring singer; he often commented that he would rather paint and sing music than write

Zukra in 2 = the mind often dwells on values, treasuries of value, collections of beautiful items, knowledge of history and languages

Zukra in 3 = the mind often dwells on search for harmony in the immediate team- cohort , attractiveness of hand-craft, writing, conversations, siblings, workgroup

Zukra in 4 = the mind often dwells on beauty of the home, arts/music in the home

Zukra in 5 = the mind often dwells on politics, center-stage performance, politically charismatic artistic expressions of beauty and balance

Zukra in 6 = the mind often dwells on imbalance in relationships * especially with women * addictions * attractiveness of sweet substances, alcohol, pleasures, pain-numbing drugs

Zukra in 7 = the mind often dwells on attractiveness of the spouse, harmony, alliances, contracts - seeking balance in all things, yoga

Zukra in 8 = the mind often dwells on secrets, hidden wealth, hidden power to balance and harmonize

Zukra in 9 = the mind often dwells on ideology, theory, philosophy, doctrine

  • Top Gun 1962- drama-commerce Tom Cruise yuti Rahu + Chandra

  • POTUS-37 Watergate Richard Nixon * parivartamsha dharmesha-9 Shani-12

Zukra in 10 = the mind often dwells on hierarchical position, social rank, one's attractiveness via favorable reputation

Zukra in 11 = the mind often dwells on gain of social-material goals, wealth and pleasure from earning income

Zukra in 12 = the mind often dwells on imagery providing spiritual guidance from the ancestors; on dreams of beautiful figures; on invisible designs, and distant lands

Shani in 3rd-from-Budha


Systematic, structural, survivalist Shani resides in 3rd from Budha

Literary, reporting, announcing, messaging, and communication on broad and inclusive themes of social structures, hierarchy, class-caste, systems, networks, rules, legislation, consequences and punishments, time, 3rd-diminsional physics, endurance, discipline, austerity, elegance, minimalism, common folk, populism, the masses and the classes

  • Faust 1749-1832 polymath Johann Wolfgang von Goethe * wrote bawdy songs and drama to be played in taverns - enormously popular works that are still used

  • As I Lay Dying 1897-1962 William Faulkner * dialogs of the common folk
  • Heartbreak Hotel 1935-1977 Elvis Presley + Chandra * songs for the southern land-working tradespeople and agricultural classes

Shani in 3rd-from-Budha suggests a conventional, often ponderous, way of thinking. One may to think in heavily weighted or pessimistic terms presuming the structures of law as inevitable; may be a worst-case thinker, or the mental narrative is laden with expectations of scarcity and responsibility to society.


Repeating narrative of scarcity

Repeating narrative of public judgment ,

  • USA Supreme Court Justice William Rehnquist

Often in a punitive or individuality-constraining context

  • first gay Anglican USA Bishop Gene Robinson

Chronic lack of survival resources, material poverty, fears of social punishment, social obloquy,

absent support from social infrastructure, heavy duties and obligation, self-isolation, insecurity.

Native perceives deep pressure from Time, a lack of ease, and a often a crushing workload.

Chronic depression or mature sobriety during Shani periods.


If Shani occupies 3rd-from-Budha

characteristic mental sobriety throughout the incarnation.

This position indicates an agency of younger siblings and team-mates who suffer from excess fear. Their conservative and safety-seeking actions may create obstacles for positive expansion of the native 's own life.

  • One may experience a light but pervasive mental depression throughout the 17 years of Budha Mahadasha

  • (even if the native is a child at the time, the depression will be felt for 17 years)

  • The bhukti of Budha-Shani may induce a severe or extended depression, which lifts only at the tail end of the Budha Mahadasha

  • drishti from the gochara Shani affecting either Budha or Shani will deepen the existing depression

  • Should Budha occupy the radix lagna or Chandra's bhava, so that Shani occupies not only 3rd-from-Budha but also 3rd-from-lagna/3rd-from-Chandra, the depression may be quite crippling.

  • Much relief can be felt when other graha cast a positive drishti upon natal Shanaischarya.

    Luckily, the Budha/Shani period occurs only once during the lifetime.

    Rahu in 3rd-from-Budha


    ***

    Risk-positive, self-important, ambitious Rahu resides in 3rd from Budha

    Literary, reporting, announcing, messaging, and communication on themes of ethno-cultural mixing, camouflaged access to privilege, social mobility, challenge to conventions, self-promotion, high risk

    Repeating narrative of ambitious self-elevation to higher levels of privilege via photographic imagery, cinema, writing, messaging, communicating to deliver an irregular, arrhythmic, taboo-breaking or unsettling announcements

    composing reports containing exotic information

    the information may destabilize conventions or upset normal patterns

    desire to rise above one's station of birth, desire to enter elite social environments, obsession with promotion and obtainment,

    disregard for established protocol, promotion of adventure and risk, compulsive self-promotion thought loops,

    intense social-ranking ideation, socially disruptive and fascinating desires.

    Mesmerized (Rahu) by mental hunger to possess that which is socially forbidden, unusual, exotic.

    • POTUS-22-24 Interstate Commerce Grover Cleveland was the subject of extraordinary public narrative during his political campaigns which forced him to address a socially taboo situation with a comprehensively managed narrative and handling.

    • A newspaper (Budha) journalist discovered the existence of a child fathered by long-time-bachelor "Grover the Rover". Apparently he had named the child and provided its financial support for longer than a decade.
    • Cleveland's handling of the public-relations (3rd-from) disaster was clever and successful. First, he honestly admitted that he, along with a group of other male friends, frequented the company of said lady, and being the only unmarried man amongst them, he accepted responsibility for the child. Second, reflecting Rahu's ruler the nichha-Kuja-2 with Azlesa Chandra and 7th-from-Chandra = 8 masking, his handlers arranged to have the child's mother incarcerated in a mental asylum for the rest of her life, thereby silencing her. Third, although nearly 50 years old, he arranged to marry the 21-year-old daughter of his deceased business partner after whom, ironically, the love-child had been named.

    Scandal, yes. Cruel pursuit of high office, whatever it takes, yes. But Rahu is transformative and able to successfully instrumentalize the energy of catastrophic attack when in classroom-8. His opponent in the second-term election was very weak and Rahu's scheme worked .

    Rahu in 3rd-from-Budha = risk-positive thinking, adventurous or taboo-breaking ideas

    Disruptive, adventurous, ambitious, occasionally fraudulent agency of younger siblings and team-mates who suffer from excess desire to obtain privileges not yet earned.

    Their disruptive and risky actions may create interruptions in stable progress of the native 's own life. It is difficult to control the immediate younger sibling in particular, when this agent acts in ways that disregard protocol and challenge the law.

    During the mahadasha of Budha, if Rahu occupies 3rd-from-Budha, the native may feel that one's thoughts have taken on an obsessive-compulsive quality.

    It becomes difficult to control thoughts focused on the desire to possess a person, a power, or an experience.

    the native may be unable to endure limits of any kind upon one's behavior.

    One feels antagonistic toward authority and disrespectful of statutory law .

    Positive outcome can include the benefits of breaking with tradition in art, literature, sport, or other humanistic venues where innovation and risk are praised.

    Naturally if Rahu occupies a conservative rashi (of Shani or Zukra) or if Rahu occupies a house which craves stability (4 or 7), the prognosis is less happy.

    However an adventurous mentality can always produce something interesting even if the native must wait until after the Budha/Rahu period to receive proper validation for the ground-breaking or record-breaking production.

    During Budha/Rahu period one is more likely to feel censured for being disruptive, but indeed there may be praise forthcoming later, after Budha Mahadasha is complete.

    Ketu in 3rd-from-Budha


    ***

    Ambivalent, dissociating, impermanent Ketu resides in 3rd from Budha

    Literary, reporting, announcing, messaging, and communication on themes of spiritual detachment, emotional disengagement, abandonment, surrender, separation from attachment to formality, wandering, pilgrimage, freedom of formlessness, disintegration, chaos, windiness, dispersal, ghosts

    Rahu in 9th from Budha simultaneously promotes the self-importance of engagement with ideology, dogma, philosophy, dharma, privileged interpreters of sacred teachings

    Speech seems to dissipate and becomes materially ineffective.

    • POTUS-pair-38 addictions clinic Betty Bloomer Ford , wife of POTUS-38 Gerald Ford and a long-time progressive activist, was a vigorous proponent of the opportunity-extending Equal Rights Amendment to the USA Constitution, for which she campaigned extensively. Yet Ketu occupies 3rd from Budha and ultimately this civil rights amendment failed to achieve ratification. (And US women still on average earn 70 cents for every dollar earned by males.)

    It is however effective in other-worldly contexts such as poetry or fiction writing

    Also effective in the description of the experience of spiritual surrender

    As always, the final outcome much depends upon Ketu's lord.

    If Ketu's ruler is effective then Professor Ketu does not normally dissolve the outcome, although Ketu in 3rd from Budha can dampen excitement of the communicative output and cause one to sound rather milquetoast.

    repeating narrative of detachment and despair, disconnection, inability to find meaning, compulsive wandering.

    Potential for complete liberation if one intentionally releases the ego-membrane from connection to the thought process.

    The narrative mind (Budha) shows a natural inclination toward non-petitionary prayer.

    Ketu in 3rd-from-Budha = withdrawal from commercial activity, disinterest in siblings

    Ketu occupies the 3rd from Budha = each small decision requires careful and circumspect review.

    The judgment = flawed during the entire Budha-Ketu period.

    Disregard and dissolution via Agency of younger siblings and team-mates who suffer from excess detachment.

    • Their apathetic withdrawal from life's vital sensuality may create frustration and paralysis in one's own life.

    • It is difficult to convince the immediate younger sibling to be more intensely involved or to be satisfied with the life that agent has chosen.

    • The younger sibling under good conditions may take a vow of religious celibacy or other saintly detachment.

    During the mahadasha of Budha, if Ketu occupies 3rd-from-Budha, the native may feel that the thought-narrative has an apathetic quality.

    It becomes difficult to control the thought traffic specifically the interior instructions which direct one to annihilate the outdated relationships which still bind the native to the material plane.

    For the spiritually advanced and properly guided personality, true ego-membrane separation from material concerns may occur and a saintly detachment results.

    For the less spiritually aware, there is a tendency to depression and disconnection from reality which can be interpreted as mental illness, although it is usually just the first phase of a genuine enlightenment which will bloom in a later era of Ketu.

    Ketu chidakaraka = "cut-off" dissolution of attachment to outdated relationships and separation from objects of desire toward which one is unable to maintain any further desire. Ketu periods can signify divorce if other pointers agree, and when Ketu occupies the mentally over-exerted and rather anxious 3rd-freom-Budha, the divorce signification gains added potency.

    If Ketu is born into the 3rd-from-Budha, during Vimshottari periods of Ketu one may feel mentally depressed, suffer from an apathetic mental narrative and unable to clearly express one's true intentions. One must retreat to silent sanctuary, unable to communicate successfully with others.

    The specific nature of the alienating, mentally obtuse inability to communicate one's thoughts successfully usually results in rejection and depression all around. However there are some wonderful alternative scenarios for the more conscious person, including increased clairsentience and much liberated ability to pass through constructed barriers of time and space. Inter-dimensional travel is facilitated for those with the natural interest and training.

    Alternating Analytical Meditation and Stabilizing meditation


    Dzong-ka-ba and 14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso .

    • (2005). Yoga Tantra: Paths to Magical Feats Jeffrey Hopkins (Trans. Ed.)

    "Here is how to alternate [between]analytical and stabilizing meditation:

    • After analyzing with individual investigation, desist from such analysis and set the mind single-pointedly on the meaning you have understood.

    • However, before the mind becomes too settled, switch again to analytical meditation, alternating in this way between stabilizing and analytical meditation.

    • Gradually, he power of analysis itself will be able to induce physical and mental pliancy...

    • with respect to calm abiding, but to a greater degree.

    Generation of a bliss of physical and mental pliancy, induced through the power of analysis, no longer requiring alternation between analytical and stabilizing meditation, marks the attainment of fully qualified special insight -- and thereby the attainment of the path of preparation.

    From this point on, you have a union of calm abiding and special insight.

    You now have powerful means for realizing the emptiness of inherent existence in order to overcome obstructions when it is brought to the level of direct perception.

    Although specific tantras, or even specific passages in tantras, emphasize either stabilizing or analytical meditation,

    • it is necessary to alternate these two equally until special insight is attained through the bliss of mental pliancy being induced,
    • not by the power of stabilizing meditation, but by the power of analysis itself.

    Therefore, it is not sufficient merely to withdraw the mind inside or even first to become mindful of the view of emptiness and then set merely in stabilizing meditation.

    Analysis is necessary.

    • This is the thought of all three masters expert in Yoga Tantra."
