Chandra-10 needs to be in policy-making, governance and regulatory environments. Chandra-10 is particularly sensitive to the needs of executives, elite leaders, and hierarchical, pyramid-shaped social structures. This angle is a signature of the roots-maintaining environmentalist patriot, and is often found in legislative-protective roles.
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.
Comforted by Constitutional Order
Chandra-10 needs constant emotional confirmation of the professional and leadership social roles. One may be emotionally identified with social position, duties and rank. The mother is typically a high-responsibility director or agent of social ordering.
Need to Lead
Chandra-10 feels a deep sense of grounding and protective safety in elite governance environments, such as corporate director meetings and executive office functions.
More important than the specific rank or nature of the duties however is the very fact of broad social recognition. High public visibility is the key to personal emotional stability. Leadership roles imbue Chandra-10 with a sense of belonging.
Reflecting Public Sensitivities
Emotional nourishment is gained from holding iconic roles not only in governance but also in culturally symbolic, figurehead type of positions. Chandra-10 serves an a lunar reflector, softly relaying the emotions of the public.
The Chandra-10 public figure is often parental-maternal and distinguished by qualities of patriotism, protectionism, environmentalism, locality, folk-customary rhythms, deep roots in the place of birth, sensitivity and gentleness.
Chandra-10 is nourished not so much by popularity or control, but rather by the dignity of recognized social position. One strives intuitively to attain the highest status available in one's profession; and once established there, to maintain public acknowledgement of importance of one's contribution to the social ordering process.
Known to the public as a sentimental, caring personality with a broad social perspective. For Chandra-10, much of life's normal daily activity, that would be otherwise more personal in nature, may be much more visible to the public eye. The minutia of one's daily life is often cast high upon the social viewing screen.
Feels most comfortable when engaged in legislative, regulatory or governance work -- or when working to fulfill social expectations.
Matrikaraka Chandra-10 indicates that the mother-figure has been demonstrating organizational leadership roles during the childhood, preparing one to comfortably and naturally (Chandra) assume responsibilities for maintaining the social order (10).
Chandra-10 is a distinctive placement for career recognition. 10th-from-Chandra becomes radical bhava-7 10th-from-10th representing advising, counsel, and peer relationships which form the basis of most public careers.
If Chandra gains other strengths such as lagnesha or ruler of 10 or ruler of 7, additional strengths can increase Chandra's rhythmic impetus toward high-visibility, parental, advising, and protective roles in executive command positions.
One may feel exceptionally sensitive to designations of social class, ranking, status hierarchies, and perceived legitimacy of institutional authority.
The soft glow of familiar-face Chandra-10 = highly recognizable at the bright peak of the social pyramid; a public icon.
A man or woman "of the people" Familiar (Chandra) to the public (10)
Emotional need to rise to a position of high visibility. Often seeks a role in organizational or institutional governance.
One achieves a familiar iconic presence in at the top levels of society and becomes well known. Typically the public expresses respect and recognition toward the native, no matter the specific profession or behavior.
One may rise to high-visibility elite profile in nearly any sort of career, but due to Chandra's quality of emotional familiarityChandra-10 is most common in politics and drama.
Especially helpful for women in high-visibility careers
Attached to the mother-in-law (10 = 4th from 7th).
Chandra in karma bhava, 7th from Soma's natural residence bandhu bhava, is generally advantageous for leadership roles and for the purpose of forming alliance with persons of social rank.
Chandra-10 needs to achieve an admired or respectable position in some social hierarchy. The natural affinity for other persons who also aspire to highly visible positions often aids the native 's professional ascent.
One may have an especially strong ability to represent the customs of a people via one's relationship (7) to the folkways basis of the nation-state or the ethnic people.
Metonymic personality. One feels socially recognized.
Chandra-10 nearly always results in the person becoming well-known familiar to the people.
Frequently the reputation is quite global, extending to many lands and nations.
Psychically absorbs and internalizes the class hierarchy , the social ranking behaviors, and the structure of government. r eflects the external components of social order and rule of statutory law which are present within one's environment. Makes a leader but not always a legislator. Often a highly iconic personality.
Material Gains are somewhat reduced despite high public visibility , and the social network is narrowed leaving relatively few trustworthy friends : 10th = 12th-from-11th.
Chandra-10 reflects the structure of society, brighter or dimmer mirroring according to the fullness of the Moon, and proximity to Rahu. Chandra-yuti-Rahu-10 becomes exceedingly well known.
Chandra-10 does not create (Surya) governance but simply reflects (Chandra) the existing social-hierarchical structure . (May also create structures if Surya also in 10.)
Other may assume that one is the chief decision-maker - but Chandra-10 only reflects the social law, does not create it
In high office, Chandra alone (no other graha in 10) is sensitive to the needs of other regulators and may become a delegator to avoid taking too much power.
Chandra-10 has much less actual governing power than it appears, unless Chandra = with another more direct-action graha such as Surya or Mangala
Especially suited to reflecting conditions of age, maturity, sobriety , conformity, leadership, Time systems, social responsibility and respect for law .
Emotionally most comfortable in a high-visibilitysocial leadership role, associated with the most prominent people, visions, or purposes in the environment.
The role may be governing, reflective, or representational. Even if Chandra-10 participates in direct governance (if other graha occupy 10) one's visage is distinctively symbolic.
Chandra-10 becomes exceptionally well-known. It is generally not possible to live a private or secluded life. The public tends to psychologically project a broad range of emotional reactions upon the native . Thus Chandra-10 may be seen as a social catalyst = one who provokes a reaction which causes social change. One becomes a parent figure or represents ideas like patriotism or shelter.
Emotional need for public dignity, honor, and respectable roles.
Chandra-10 has iconic powers to represent a movement, a cause, or an entire civilization to the public view. Both the native and one's mother become well-known to the public. Good reputation. Distinguished in public service.
If Chandra-10 is well-disposed, one may be born into a public-leadership family; not necessarily financially privileged but often quite well-known. andra in karma bhava is that one ABSORBS public's collective projected expectations into oneself.
Emotionally this can create pressure, as Chandra-10 may not be able to find"down time". Family life may be compromised by public duties.
The man will have a steady, supportive relationship with his mother who provides leadership modeling and imbues the child with a sense of social responsibility. the native 's emotional relationships with women have a strong component of duty and public behavior. (This position of the moon is a strong divorce preventative, even when the marriage is unhappy.)
A woman also receives leadership instruction from her mother, who will have a higher station in life or heavier social responsibilities. Emotional support from the parents may be reduced, showing their preference for delivering training toward higher social dignity.
native is socially visible, well-known and generally well-liked as people feel familiarity with one's image. A good predictor of fame and public personality, may become a"household name".
Maternal caretaking and nurturing qualities injected into the public role. Special ability to deal with mothers and children, family life, safety and security.
Signifies engagement in commerce and occupations connected to water. Naturally inclined toward caring and counseling professions, if Chandra is well. All public service professions are supported.
Mother * Parents
The parents, particularly the mother, are well-known in their local environment and often social or professional leaders in their town.
Chandra-10 = raised in a home-based (Chandra) lifestyle which emphasizes "good behavior", social responsibilities (10) prominent public roles, and the importance of public reputation.
Parents have high visibility in the area of settlement, and may hold executive positions in government or corporate institutions.
High visibility in career and recognition for professional leadership is assured for the native, unless Chandra is afflicted.
Disagreement, disappointment, emotional servitude = 6th-from-Chandra
When Chandra occupies Bhava-10, the most difficult house emotionally becomes 6th-from-10th = Sahaja bhava.
Depending on conditions in Bhava-3, there may be affective planned misalignments requiring realignment attention due to disagreements with the siblings and team-mates; regarding matters of writing and publications; business administration such as management tasks, documentation and reports, sales, advertising, marketing; the culture of group-cooperation, meetings; messaging, memoranda, schedules calendars and all of the minutiae of the daily communications. Teamwork can feel unbalanced to the point of being exploitative.
During its Vimshottari period, the vikramapathi ruler of 3 may produce emotional servitude experienced as a consistent, ongoing state of giving more than one receives. Strong and supportive graha residing in bhava-3 may reverse or mitigate this trend.
Siblings, cousins, team-mates, and the office work-group tend to be the particular agents of disagreement, disappointed expectations, exploitative overwork, or in extreme case acts of betrayal. Writing projects and publications, as well as the immediate younger sibling, and people performing non-executive administrative roles generally, may continue to demand more in service than they reward.
Documentation, team-process, management tasks, announcements and publications as well as mentality, siblings and cousins = Bhava-3 = 6th-from-Chandra;
One may experience a persistent feeling of unbalanced discomfort with small groups, writers, publishers, and messaging media such as advertising or computer programming or cinema scripts.
Depending naturally on graha residing in bhava-3, one may feel during periods of the ruler of 6th-from-Chandra that one is emotionally unsuited to carrying out the requirements of basic commercial administration such as office work. Depression if noticed is generally temporary, but can be expected to recur with each bhukti of the ruler. One may even feel "enslaved to business" and long for the freedom of a non-mercantile life. However the mind can be expected to clear when the bhukti of the ruler of 3 is finished.
BPL: 10th = shad-ashtaka 6/8 from putrasthana-5. Chandra in 10 indicates some disagreeable friction with the children, particularly the eldest child. Often the Chandra-10 native feels (Soma) that the child is not aligned (6/8) with the cultural roots, rhythms, and habits of the traditional culture. Consider any graha located in bhava-5 to provide more details of this narrative between parent (Chandra) and child.
If a second marriage is in the script, similar disagreeable friction may be anticipated in regard to step-children acquired via the second marriage. Second alliance = 2nd-from-Chandra = bhava-11 life-partner-2. 5th-from-11 children of the 2nd life partner = bhava-3. Sahaja-bhava-3 is an upachaya sthana which does improve over time. However, bhava-3 is located on a shad-ashtaka 6/8 angle from the lagna of Chandra-10. Therefore the children of the second life-mate (if any) will tend to have managerial, discursive, conversational, communicative behaviors that seem adversarial to the decisive, regulatory, executive"big picture" Chandra-10.
For example, in my files, a corporate executive of high stature who married an old friend (11) and community activist (11). Her eldest child is a"talk therapist" psychologist who engages in repetitive narrative process. The Chandra-10 native is often frustrated with this (adult) step-child's tolerance for talk that does not lead to action. Being both well-educated, they have"agreed to disagree" but the tension remains palpable.
"This placement produces variable fame, changes in position, tremendous responsibilities , and relationships in which coolness of mind is essential.
You get wealth and recognition from the state.
You are ambitious and so acquire prominent positions .
affluent, pure, very strong, valorous and charitable."
In all your designs you will succeed, and light will shine on your path.
