  • Material Girl 1958- Madonna yuti Rahu

Shani in 3rd-from Chandra = 3rd-from characteristics in the emotional relationship to the second husband. 3rd-from grants a twinning or sibling quality to the union.


Vimshottari period of bhratrupathi-3 from Chandra

Typically this Vimshottari Dasha period evokes imagery and agency of the mother's immediate younger sibling and provokes the emotional programming associated with sibling interactions.

In adult years, the active agent is equally likely to be a co-worker, a collaborative peer, or a neighbor. The programming was developed to deal with sibling-cousins or family relatives, but it may be applied in later iterations to anyone and any circumstances which psychologically mimic the childhood coterie.

The drama of interoperative, collaborative, communicative activity is heightened by any graha which might be located in 3rd-from-Chandra.

pitrikaraka Surya in 3rd from Chandra


Surya-3rd from Chandra is a brightly intelligent, communicative messaging placement that favors all types of commercial business, particularly when one becomes the iconic image of the product or idea.

Excellent placement for those involved in emotionally sensitive, intuitive messaging, publications, signal-media.

Favors reports, announcements, delivery of messages, crafting of communications, documentation, filing of briefs, and process management.

Splendid for fashion models, photographers, producers of messaging cinema educational content

  • Friends 1969- drama-commerce Jennifer Aniston * Surya-yuti-Budha * fashion model, cinematic producer * licensing of her image for use in fashion materials, magazines, television, and cinematic films. Surya karmesha ++ Surya-yuti-Budha suggests media-messaging.

  • Runaway Bride 1967- drama-commerce Julia Roberts + Budha-yuti-Ketu

To produce full results, Surya should be empowered by rashi and be accompanied by talkative or dynamic graha such as Budha (chat) or Mangala (action) or Rahu (ambition).

  • "O" 1954- multimedia Oprah Winfrey + Budha-yuti-Rahu * her remarkable career was founded in the communication of emotionally-engaging discourse (3)serving a primarily female audience. Rahu is a tremendous amplifier of the message.

Mangala in 3rd from Chandra


Mangala-3rd from Chandra is directly confrontational toward groups, cohort, siblings. However the brothers (Mangala) are likely to form teams and do ensemble work, and the mother (Chandra) manages the band-of-brothers. Later, a brother or male-cohort serves in a management role for oneself or one's family.

Energizes the mentality and grants an engineering mentality, which could emerge as set-design and choreography or as weapons design.

  • Thriller 1958-2009 Michael J. Jackson rose to fame via his "band of brothers " the Motown musical group "Jackson Five". He continued to collaborate (3) with the cohort of his brothers throughout his 50-year lifetime, albeit Mangala-yuti-Ketu occasionally scattered the coherence of the ensemble performance team

  • Meditations 1596-1650 logic Rene Descartes was a military engineer who designed weaponry for the French regional armies.

  • A Room of One's Own 1882-1941 Virginia Woolf was a busy publisher. She and her husband designed and operated their own mechanized literary press. She had seven siblings, including two sexually abusive (toward her) elder male step-brothers. There was constant communication among her sibling group, and among her adult cohort which included many writers, editors, and publishers. Mangala-Mithunaya

  • POTUS-pair-02 Letters 1744-1818 Abigail Adams . 3rd-from-Chandra contains yogakaraka SImha-Mangala-1. She wrote countless numbers of highly influential letters to her husband and his peers stimulating their correspondence discourse about political (Simha) and war (Mangala) topics.

  • Institutes 1509-1564 John Calvin was a dynamic evangelical writer whose critical, exegetical arguments are still studied by Protesting Christian scholars.

Budha in 3rd-from-Chandra


Budha in 3rd from Chandra expresses the communicative, verbal, articulatory, evangelical, announcing, reporting, literate, rhythmically based media-messaging behaviors via the psycho-mental sensitivity of Chandra. An emotional communicator.

  • Genesis 1951- musician Phil Collins writes emotionally evocative love songs

  • Italy-Dictator 1883-1945 Fascist Benito Mussolini made constant use of the new technology of radio and filled the newspapers with propaganda materials

  • POTUS-44 Audacity of Hope 1961- Barack H. Obama * Budha-yuti-Surya-5 = earned substantially from his first two books on topics of childhood home and cultural foundations (Chandra). A gifted writer, he can be expected to continue to produce emotionally evocative materials.

Guru resides in 3rd-from-Chandra


abundant communications. Nature of the message depends upon Guru's rashi and bhava.

  • Louisiana-Gov 1893-1935 Kingfish Huey P. Long was famed for "leafleting" politics of distributing millions of brief, easy-to-read pamphlets stating his philosophy, policies, and plans to the Louisiana voters. He utilized diverse and frequent messaging within radio campaigns and presentation events (3). Due to Guru in bhava-6 not all of the information was honest, accurate, or complete.

many short-term relationships, pleasant conversations, and business travels

  • POTUS-16 Emancipation 1809-1865 Abraham Lincoln * uttama-Zukra-yuti-Guru-Meena3 = 3rd-from-Chandra. Lincoln was a circuit-rider lawyer and judge for many years in rural Illinois Territory. Later his political career in the USA Congress and Presidency during the Civil War caused almost constant traveling within a 10-state area.

From the perspective of a wifely nativity:

Husband's behavior continues the sibling relationship dynamic from the childhood. Focus on small-group communications.

A shared-narrative, talkative, friendly relationship between the spouses. Good for marital business partnership and joint marital planning ventures. The couple may enjoy going into business together.

Zukra in 3rd-from-Chandra


Generally, the emotionally sensitive nature of communications 3rd-from-Chandra is well supported via Zukra's diplomatic, harmonious, contract-seeking agreeableness

  • Human Rights 1978- attorney Amal Alamuddin Clooney + Surya-yuti-Budha is famed for her ability to tackle political corruption cases and to negotiate the release of unfairly jailed prisoners. While much of her professional dignity derives from a Shani-6 in 10th-from-Chandra which imposes a leadership burden for political crimes, her Zukra-Budha-Surya cluster in 3rd-from-Chandra is strengthening for matters of meetings, documentation, paperwork, process management, and day-to-day communications which form the bulwark of formal legal casework.

In the nativity of a husband-figure, Zukra-3 suggests meeting wife-1 in a salon or conversation parlor. Meeting could occur in a business conference, a small-group activity, a dinner party, a sport team, a small-scale social event, or any cooperative entourage or ensemble setting.

  • UK-PM Global Alliance 1953- Tony Blair * uttama lagnesha Zukra-11 parivartamsha Guru-1 * his first meeting with Cherie Blair occurrence in a conference converation setting. His wife who is a skilled legal attorney likely participated in writing numerous important documents

Zukra in 3rd-from Chandra =3rd-from characteristics in the emotional relationship to the wife(s). 3rd-from grants a twinning or sibling quality to the union. Wife is commercially oriented and a pleasant business associate.

Shani resides in 3rd-from-Chandra

Public Figures


Karaka for psycho-electro-magnetic emotional anxiety, potentially severe and typically compensated by workaholism. Resistance to innovation; feels emotionally comforted by conditions of austerity, discipline, sobriety, deprivation, and uncompensated responsibilities for team success.

Karaka for chronic worrying, depression and sobriety. Can manifest as psycho-mental weighty oppression. Typically the depression is materially caused by heavy social duties and obligations, with enduring tasks and many setbacks. Often the immediate younger sibling has the same condition.

  • POTUS-pair-37 Watergate 1912-1993 Pat Ryan Nixon * nichha-Shani-yuti-Rahu * suffered a lifelong anxiety condition, which she self-medicated by chain-smoking cigarettes (eventually dying of lung cancer). Since teenage years, her workload was steadily heavy beginning with the death of her mother when she assumed adult household responsibilities and continuing through her numerous jobs, paid and unpaid, undertaken to fulfill the obligations of marriage, family, or educational goals.

The anxieties suggested by Shani in 3rd-from-Chandra may be a response to oppressive responsibilities for institutional governance. Emotionally weighty obligation to maintain the lawful social order.

As a method of dealing with His characteristic resistance and fear toward group cooperation, Shani in 3rd-from-Chandra"goes to work". One may develop traits of workaholism, and refuse to discuss things while soldiering on alone toward a lawful conclusion. Shani prefers denial, and Shani resists change. That usually means a serious, reliable personality with very little willingness to use emotional methods to resolve problems. Rather, the native prefers time-tested material methods.

The native typically accepts the evil realities (Shani) of cooperative cohort group-work as material facts of human life, and tolerates an ongoing state of mental-task overload with maturity, stamina and persistence.

Shani casts no Parashari graha-drishti upon Chandra

Beholden to the Message

Shani in 3rd-from-Chandra can produce emotional depression.

Either by their presence or by their absence

Narrative Mentality and Siblings become the primary instructional agents in the karma struggle to transform emotional ignorance into emotional wisdom.

May feel alienated from younger siblings *3rd from Chandra. Often a sense of responsibility toward a younger sibling. The immediate younger sibling may have a character that is distinctively strict, rule-bound, rigid, depressed, sober, status-conscious, punitive, rigidly conventional, or Shani-like in other ways.

  • Twilight of the Idols 1844-1900 Friedrich Nietzsche famously was governed (Shani) by his younger sister Elisabeta, with whom he had an alternately disagreeable and reconciled relationships. Elisabeta was a staunch German nationalist. She controlled his life and later put his books into the service of the pre-Nazi movement, going so far as to redact and rewrite his words in order to make them conform (Shani) to a governing principle of German supremacy.

Shani in 3rd-from-Somana puts a karmic burden upon the communications activities in life, and make communication (written, verbal, electronic, gestural) feel like a heavy task not easy. Mentally, this angle invites cynicism or extreme sobriety leading to depression.

Obligation to write instructions, so that others may know the Rules.

Obligation to produce government propaganda and highly structured, emotionally motivated messages.

Prognosis always improved if either Shani or Chandra is dignified by rashi or if either rules a kendra or a bhagya sthana. Either Shani-yuti-Rahu -or- Chandra-yuti-Rahu can produce amplified 3rd-from results.

  • Twilight of the Idols 1844-1900 Friedrich Nietzsche had Chandra-yuti-Rahu-3, with Shani in 3rd-from-Chandra. He struggled with blindness and disease which made writing painful, but soldiered on to publish numerous influential philosophy books that are still in print 150 years later.


Rahu resides in 3rd-from-Chandra

commercial business, communications, reports, announcements, radio-television-newspapers-audio-video-internet, media-publications, writing, publications


Bhava-3 = 8th-from-8th creating opportunities for emotionally charged exciting announcements and ambitious team-meetings. Sudden communication ambition and expedient announcements.

  • Syria-Pres 1965- ophthalmologist Bashar al-Assad * infamous propaganda, including his image plastered on every surface and warfare framed as "reform". Also, Budha rules 3 in 3rd-from-3rd, indicating information intensity.

  • POTUS-37 Watergate 1913-1994 Richard Nixon * a productive writer on topics of international diplomacy. Nixon was not trained as a historian, nor schooled in statecraft. Most of his work appears to be self-promotion or self-vindication, with him as the hero; few of his books were considered historically important.

The emotionally perceived path to privilege is often shaped by the corporate department, sports team, musical ensemble, flight crew, work group, committee members, and other sibling-type collaborative small-group focus.

Because 3 is 10th-from-6 and Rahu likes to work with taboo, polluted, marginalized or out-caste persons, Professor Rahu may promote the social reputation and career of the servants. Thus Rahu-3rd-from-Chandra may be emotionally engaged in casting a bright light of visibility (10) upon previously taboo subjects or persons.

  • Material Girl 1958- Madonna + Guru. Her long-lasting career communicates numerous previously shunned or disgraced themes in a context of emotional engagement with the forbidden.

Rahu is hands-on and looking for opportunity to gain advantage in bhava-3 settings focused on team management, commercial activities such as sales, marketing, media-messaging and instruction. Rahu is excited by writing, producing, cinema, radio-television-internet, news (particular sensational news) and every form of reporting.

  • "O" 1954- multimedia Oprah Winfrey has Chandra in Vrizchika lagna, so that Makara-Rahu occupies 3. She built a fabulous media career from sensationalized, emotionally charged television programming. Her nativity also shows sober, lawful Maraka strength in radical bhava-3 supporting the emotional motive with solid professional skills in the communications industry

Professor Rahu approaches all situations with an eye toward expedient use of environments that may advance His quest for privilege and power. In 3rd-from-Chandra, Professor Rahu the Mix-Master specializes in exotic, rule-challenging cultural "mixtures" of exciting, taboo-breaking information.

  • France-Pres 1890-1970 Mémoires de Guerre Charles de Gaulle * emotionally charged, inspirational radio messages, broadcast from London during foreign exile (Rahu)

Siblings in Jyotisha are generally judged from the Chandra-lagna. Sudden and dramatic emotional changes causes by eruption of acquisitive or possessive cravings in sibling or workmate groups.

Exotic circumstances of the younger siblings; may be some irregularity in the social status of the sibling group

  • Cien años de soledad literary author Gabriel Garcia Marquez was the eldest of 15 siblings, several of whom were born to his father from mates outside of his parents marriage.

One's own internal narrative mentality is also the site of sudden desire-driven change.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-3 "changes one's mind", shifting from one emotional stance to the next, with extraordinary frequency and ease.

There may be boundary-challenging irregular electro-magnetic initiating thoughts and announcements.

  • Open Society 1930- capitalist George Soros has written many books and articles on economic topics, signifying the writing-and-publishing dynamism of Meza-Rahu in 3rd from Chandra. However perhaps his most incendiary announcement occurred on 16-Sept-1992 Black Wednesday when Soros, via the commercial business of currency trading, famously Broke the Bank of England

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-3 may indicate communicative arrhythmia, caused by too large a dose of exotic information indigestible by the common domestic folk.

rejected or suspicious internationalistic (Rahu) writing and planning

Mother's siblings (aunts and uncles) and one's own siblings may become the agents of dramatic disruption of one's personal and social identity. Coworkers and cohort also expedient and slithery.

Irregular response to cultural norms through communicative behaviors such as holding meetings, conferences, conversations, and seminars. An agent of arrhythmic, unpredictable mental behavior vis-à-vis one's audience.

  • The Mirror 1895-1986 theosophy Jiddu Krishnamurti wrote many books and delivered many conference-style teachings; traveled frequently to training events. However his signature communication was the extraordinarily Rahu-disruptive Aug-1929 speech in which he abdicated from his World Teacher role (and its associated programming) while explicitly rejecting the authority of organizations to identify truth.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-3 may become an agent of social-emotional disruption for others, as one expresses a taboo-breaking evangelical message via communications media such as writing, film, advertisements, announcements, and reports.

KETU resides in 3rd-from Chandra



Cousins and sibling are present according to Ketu's ruler, but the presence is scattered and dispersed. One may be barely conscious of their presence on the material plane.

Ketu-the-Disregarder in 3rd-from-Chandra tends to ignore cooperative, collaborative signals which facilitate teamwork, entourage, and ensemble production.

Dispersal, disjunction, and general ineffectiveness of the cohort may be corrected if Ketu is accompanied by another graha.

However in general the native is not well suited to cooperative environments such as corporate-institutional departments, musical-artistic performance ensembles, and sales-marketing teams due to the repeating emotional experience of the team being rather effervescent dispersing, incoherent and unreliable (Ketu)

Ketu-the-Disregarder in 3rd-from-Chandra indeed benefits the mental composure, as one becomes less concerned with the constant fluctuations of the emotions (Chandra) as these impact the mental patterns (3rd-from). Yet if Ketu's ruler is powerful, the cohort can be active even while one is dismissing them.

Psycho-mentally sensitive to higher frequency, other-worldly vibrations.

The mind wanders toward apprehension of impermanence and perception of spiritual dimensions.

  • Purple Rain 1958-2016 Prince
