When Chandra occupies bhava-1 * the radical lagna is located in the Chandra lagna itself. One has a natural affinity for first-from matters such as the physical body appearance, for matters of vitality and movement, and for the visual identity.
The Chandra-1 native seeks comfort in environments that are deeply parental, protected, familiar and nourishing. Chandra-1 is a signature of the self-focused athlete and modeler, often found in fleshbody-oriented physiological, engineering, and birthing roles. Deeply patriotic and identifies with the home culture.
The avowed partner is often a bargainer, arbitrator, attorney or negotiator who seeks balanced terms of agreement, often involved in match-making, deal-making, trust-building roles.
Professor Chandra's special area of instruction is emotional sensitivity, absorption of feelings from the local environment, and emotional reaction or response. Chandra-1 is especially sensitive to the fluctuation of waters within the fleshbody (such as hormones) birth, newness, and the need for familiar, rhythmic routines of movement (such as worship rituals, sports flow, military drill, or dance). Chandra-1 is soothed near tidal waters.
The child becomes accustomed to the rhythmic patterns of agile intuitive movement, and one is made comfortable with pioneering-yet-stabilizing activities and roles from an early age.
In addition to an affinity for ritual (rite, rhythm) Chandra-1 grants the calming power of a familiar face. Parental figures in the worlds of politics and religion often have Chandra-1.
Definitive influence of Graha-yuti-Chandra
Anything which may be said of Chandra must be prefaced by a disclaimer. Professor Chandra is the soul of impressionability. He lives to reflect. Therefore, the characteristics of other graha yuti Chandra are often more in evidence than the underlying behaviors of Chandra Himself.
Chandra-1 needs constant engagement with the physical body and the personality shell. Deeply identified with the flesh-body's movements, shape, and capacity to represent ideas, meanings, and feelings.
Feels that the flesh-body is a natural means for relating emotionally to others. Sensitive and often successful in mirroring the needs of others. Chandra is enormously impressionable and needy, therefore an final interpretation of Chandra-1 depends upon the graha owned by Chandra, yuti Chandra, etc.
Another contrast = 14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso . With ruler-of-12 Chandra in lagna, His Holiness is personally emotionally identified with the experience of meditation (12) being a refugee (12) and also his ongoing need to bridge with distant lands in order to protect (Chandra) his wandering people. The addition of diplomatic Zukra in the Dalai Lama's radical lagna adds a powerful reinforcement to his peaceful-agreement agenda.
Bhava-1 natural ruler Mangala =
Vitality + familiarity
Exceptionally sensitive to physical movement, blood vitality, and perceived competition
Emotionally most comfortable in environments:
active physical movement characterized by emotional sensitivity and parental concern
symbolizing a rhythmic, familiar litany of expressive appearances
presence of mother-figures
Strong emotional attachment to
Prefers a vigorously active, movement-oriented lifestyle.
Needs constant movement, physical vitality and a unique identity.
Helpful placement for dramatists in "emotionally engaged, physically active roles, stage performers
Helps elected politicians by appealing to citizen's feelings of wanting to be protected by a parent-figure. Feelings of patriotism , return to the rhythmic old ways , or defense of national borders or defense of the habitual ethno-national lifestyle
Chandra-1 produces a strongly affectionate, psycho-emotional response to life. The mate may serve as a corrective balancer who reminds Chandra-1 of diplomatic and social-contractual requirements.
The main trouble with Chandra in Tula bhava is that one ABSORBS the human fixation with the body and its appearance into one's deeper self. This can create emotional pressure when it is time to attend to matters of higher identity.
Chandra-1 = self-concerned, sensitive :
Whether male or female, Chandra-1 = parent-figure in their organization or society.
Articulator of the collective unconscious. Feelings run powerfully through the physical body, while the physical body receives constant emotional feedback from others in the environment.
If Chandra-yuti-Shani = repressed by the strict conventionalism (Shani) of the mother (Chandra)

Final outcome depends significantly upon:
A male generally has emotionally intense relationships with women. He is socially identified with the concerns of land, home, family and children.
If the nativity is benevolent overall, he may be surrounded by women who can"off-load" some of the excess emotional energy he acquires as he reflects the unmet needs and desires of the people around him.
If the nativity is not auspicious, a male may be controlled by women or consumed by the unmet emotional needs of others. Prone to inordinate struggle with either guilt or grief, usually guilt.
Can signify a martyr to family needs, or Narcissus consumed with his own image in the pond.
Women are constitutionally better designed to process emotions.
A woman is, for better or worse, (depending on Soma's overall condition) deeply identified with her mother.
She may also position herself socially as a"woman's woman"as an advocate for parenting and an emotional resource for women's concerns.
Physical body tends to"retain water" when the body's fluid pumping system is overstressed.
Typically not a swimmer - does not like to be immersed in water but may be deeply soothed by walking along the ocean beaches, estuaries, and continental coastlines.
Huge healer, loves to protect children and animals, but also surprisingly self-concerned with physical appearance.
Must be carefully managed to locate the source of spiritual nurturing within the Self and avoid self-obsession.
6th-from-Chandra * repeating, rhythmic patterns of challenge to equanimity, arising from agents of animosity, accusation, gossip, debt, or disease
the most difficult emotions for the Chandra-1 nativity = the feelings which emit from 6th-from-1st = Ripu bhava-6
Unless there are strong graha in 6, one may feel emotionally unsuited to the task of engaging in ongoing argument or emotionally conflicted relationships.
emotionally enslaved to a cycle of creation and dissolution of relationships (12th from 7th)
If Chandra is strong, resilience is granted to deal with long-term, deep-seated conflict
Depending on conditions in Bhava-6, affective difficulties due to disagreements with servants and employees, members of the working class and the underclass, police and military officers, physicians and druggists.

Servants or employees,

" You will be gregarious and will want everyone to appreciate you. ...

and disbelieving of your spouse."
