Messenger of Astral Information
swabhava of Brihaspati
"bedroom talk" - private prayer - seclusion - invisible arrangements - interior communications - spiritual guidance - quietude - meditative retreat - imagination + clairsentience
Budha occupies the stable and professionalized 7th + 10th from Kumara's natural bhava = 3 + 6.
due to the career indications of the 7-10 angle, Budha-12 can produce a surprisingly distinguished public reputation (10th) even when dedicated to handling very private interior and meditative matters.
Budha-12 = an intuitive thinker with cooperative contacts in many worlds (12), and a gifted clairsentient messenger when the "listening" function of prayer (not the petitionary function) is emphasized in the nativity.
Budha-12 may have discussions with world leaders but nevertheless remains a privately enclosed person.
"Narrative of Other Worlds"
talking, gesturing, reporting, writing, painting, tool-using, technology-applying, arguing, criticizing, explaining, instructing, training, short-term, near-goal travel and constantly interacting with others, regarding
Budha the Logician is neutrally placed in a swabhava of philosophical teacher Guru. Budha-12 enjoys many opportunities to receive instruction from spiritual guides. Furthermore, Budha-12 if Budha is strong will parlay these instructions to others. Budha does not generate His own information. Budha = simply a signal repeater.
Spirit guides are active in this life and much imaginative intelligence is engaged. However the instructions of the ancestral Guide's tend to direct one along a portion of the astral-to-material path (12) which develops logical argumentation and mentalized instructional forms (Budha).
The ancestral guidance does not directly steer Budha-12 through the channel which develops intuitive wisdom via direct, holistic dream imagery or merging with the Divine presence via reflective prayer (Guru). The preferred channel is conscious reasoning.
However because Budha is simply a signal-repeater, the Kumara's logical and narrative tendencies do not interfere with the spiritual content of the guidance. Budha in 12 re-tells philosophical and religious tales . Budha in 12 continues and explains various narrative and scriptural lineage teachings e.g. via scriptural exegesis.
Not an original teacher but simply a clear and non-disruptive mimic, skilled translator, and scribe of Guru's wisdom-teachings.
Therefore, as Das-Behari says below, a conflict between Budha's commercial-practical-textual mentality and the astral-plane meditative imagistic wisdom occurs.
Budha is not entirely welcome or completely flourishing in 9 because Budha will not permit the truth to persist merely as existent imagistic non-mentalized reality.
Budha must transform the psychic, clairvoyant, transcendently meditative truth of communication with the ancestors from the dream world into books, magazines, websites, movies, and songs.
uttama-Budha in 12 is a classifier and arguer of astral imagery, and a skilled facilitator of communication between the rishis and ancestors on the astral side of the bridge as they exchange information with spiritual seekers on the material side of the bridge.
uttama- Budha-12 may prefer to write in logical discourse whenever there is time after religious or teaching duties (10) since 10th-from-Budha-Kanya-12 = dharmasthana-Mithunaya.
Swakshetra Budha-12 = may prefer to remain privately communicative in 'bedroom' or "sanctuary" relationships due to coupling nature of Mithunaya.
Nevertheless Budha-12 is blessed with high intelligence and is often a superb explainer (Budha) and 'astral tour guide' for others who wish to interpret (Budha) their private memories, dreams, and reflections.
Budha-12 = articulatory skill to communicate about private things, such as
Backroom political dealings; palace intrigue
clandestine foreign dealings
private bedroom practices, private lifestyle
seclusion, meditation and private prayer
distant or imaginary worlds, inner worlds =
Intuitively guided Research
fantasy ; artistic inspiration
Budha in Vyaya bhava is one of the strongest symptoms of a good astrologer and dream-interpreter. Budha explains the nature of the traffic on the bridge between the astral plane (subconscious) and the material plane (conscious).
Budha in 12 also contributes to the dissolution of the material plane identity. Budha's thoughts, words, and gestures tend to siphon off the vitality from the animal, blood-fed, muscular body and transmit the life-force back into the dream world. As a result Budha becomes associated with losses and the two domains which Budha rules will get drained of their positive reserves.
Budha-12 is inclined toward thought patterns which roam the bridge that spans from the material plane to the astral plane. Such a native lives perhaps in a state of meditative awareness without particularly needing to establish a separate ritual practice.
Budha-12 can utilized advanced psychic perceptual acuity. One is aware of the fragility and heightened sensitivity field of children and animals.
Mental productivity enhanced by sanctuary protective walls; retreat may be required to function successfully; facility with library research, scientific experiments in controlled circumstances, travel writing, reports from the beyond. Great imagination, although whether its product is useful in the material world will depend on incoming drishti and condition of Budha's lord.
Budha produces a good deal of mental traffic and chatter in whatever house He occupies. In 12, the nature of the chatter is contemplative, reflective, rather private, imaginative, and mixed with Guru's classic religious intuition.
Budha ill-disposed in 12 can easily signify mental illness. Budha-12 may be a successful writer on foreign subjects, such as long sojourn in foreign lands or the ways of exotic peoples. Facility with divination and dream-interpretation. In rashi of Budha (Mithuna, Kanya) mental talent for palmistry and card-reading.
Budha is mentally-analytically clairsentient;
Detailed and articulate imagination and may be a gifted storyteller with an amazing flair for psychological narrative. Yet, the material manifestation of the two houses ruled by Budha will be expressed in a 'dissolved' style, primarily via the imagistic channel of dreams
Social success as a travel guide in foreign lands, a translator of foreign texts, or a therapist in private enclosure.
Dreams are verbal and busy, full of information.
Distant Lands and Inner Lands
Meditative daydreams and fantasies of siblings and sibling-quick communications.
Rapid processing of topics related to distant lands and inner lands, and production of writing and publication, of planning, organizing, and scheduling, of rapid travel to multiple destinations, of commerce and business exchange transactions.
Budha-12 will ne a person of quick wit and commercial acumen in a future life, with a strong connection to the world of writing and publications. By default, graha in Bhava-12 are 'dissolved' into astral imagery which has not yet descended into material form. Whether this distinction will manifest partially in the current life depends on the supporting graha and the degree of meditative practice (12).
Favors scientific research into communication systems and into the psychology of thinking (Budha).
AH IS AWAKE
“Leading a Spotless Life” in The Path of Individual Liberation, Volume One of The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma,
by Chögyam Trungpa, page 225
"Postmeditation as well as sitting meditation is symbolized by the
syllable AH. AH represents openness and humor—it represents dharma,
the truth of the teaching.
When we become aware of something, we say AH!
People tend to think of meditation practice as a way of calming down and soothing yourself.
But in Buddhism there is a sense of AH!
You are not trying to calm yourself down—you are trying to be awake as opposed to asleep. "
Bhava-12 privatizes the mentality.
Budha-12 is blessed with clairsentience and is vividly able to receive
guidance through meditation, reflection, or dreams.
Yet even uttama-Budha (for Thula lagna) which
makes extremely elaborate and accurate arguments is
unable to reach the public due to
in the astral sanctuary. Damages the relationship to siblings: either
loss of a sibling by death or social-emotional dissolution of the relationship
to the siblings.
Yet even uttama-Budha (for Thula lagna) which makes extremely elaborate and accurate arguments is largely unable to reach the public due to containment in the astral sanctuary.
Damages the relationship to siblings: either loss of a sibling by death or social-emotional dissolution of the relationship to the siblings.
Where the Thoughts do Linger
The bhava which is 3rd-from-Budha also creates a "landing pad" upon which the thoughts tend to dwell and linger.
Naturally, if graha occupy this "focus" bhava, the nature of the repeating narrative engagement with those thoughts will adjust according to the character of the tenant graha.

NOURISHMENT OF THE CONTEMPLATIVE
HH Dalai Lama
"The feelings of joy and sorrow do not exist from their own side. Although
they exist as conceptual imputations, you cling to them as existing from
their own side. Feelings do not exist by their own intrinsic nature; rather,
they are identified on the basis of contributing circumstances.
Therefore, this analysis is cultivated as an antidote for that [false conception of intrinsic existence].
The meditative absorption that arises from the field of discriminative investigation is the food of the contemplative. ~~ Shantideva
Feelings do not truly exist; they are not found when sought through analysis; they do not exist independently, but exist by the power of convention. Thus, the means for overcoming the misconception of the true existence of feelings is meditation on their lack of such existence. This entails analyzing the mode of existence of feelings.
Such investigation is an aid to meditative absorption and leads to the integration of meditative quiescence and insight. That increases the physical vitality of the contemplative and enhances the power of his [or her] spiritual practice. Thus it is called the nourishment of the contemplative. "
