When Chandra occupies bhava-12 * the radical lagna is located in 2nd-from-Chandra. One gains a special affinity for 2nd-matters such as family lineage, food storage, language, genetics, speech-and-song, and treasuries of valuable goods and knowledge .
The mother is often a withdrawn, secluded, or invisible figure. She may reside in a cloister, in a distant land, or in another remote location such as the earth's astral plane. She may be associated with hospitals, monasteries, or dormitories. She is emotionally influential via dreams and intuitive guidance but relatively less present in one's material life.
Because 9th-from-Chandra becomes randhrabhava-8, there is potential for transformative-destructive energy in the emotional character of the father. This hidden, secret force might not impact the father's public life. Yet the internal family psychic entity is subject to eruptions of force. However this depends significantly upon the characteristics of bhava-8.
Chandra-12 seeks comfort in private environments such as hospitals, monasteries, prisons, or distant lands; or alternatively, in their own contemplative imagination. Chandra-12 is particularly sensitive to the needs of those who live in distant worlds, invisible places, dormitories, or enclosures.
This angle is a signature of the family curator who while living quietly "under the radar" continues to maintain the herds-and-hoards of lineage wealth and genetic historical knowledge.
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.
Given Professor Somana's openness to outside influences, any graha yuti Chandra are greatly influential in shaping Chandra's behavioral output.
Retreat and reflect
Chandra-12 usually indicates a quiet and reflective person who is sensitive to intuitive impressions, charitable, and somewhat reclusive. Clairsentient intuitive bridge to the realm of spirit, and along this dream bridge can travel much guidance, yet this bridge being made of feelings is not always consciously acknowledged (especially by males).
Often feels most comfortable in some variety of enclosure, such as a meditation space, a bedroom, a research laboratory, a camp, distant land, or distant worlds of the imagination. The mother may be an emotionally distant figure.
Chandra-12 may seem to others as emotionally unavailable or unresponsive. That impression is usually caused by the predominance of (conscious or unconscious) engagement with the spirit world which somewhat precludes high-drama emotional engagement with the human world. Chandra-12 may be better attuned to the subtle signals from etheric sources, and perhaps less well attuned to the fluctuating emotional needs of those in the immediate human environment.
Chandra-12 is usually a private person who needs constant availability of an escape route, in order to withdraw and retreat into sanctuary. One's interior emotional experience is often invisible not only to the public but often to the Chandra-12 native as well.
The rays of the moon are indistinct in bhava-12, where a broad bandwidth of spiritual influences are operating.
There is a steady, rhythmic pattern of seeking protective privacy in part due to continuing need to sort out The abundant guidance that is being continuously provided by the watchers.
Somana-12 prefers to maintain strong boundaries (Chandra) around the emotional life. Both the native and one's mother share a dis-preference to reveal details of private family life with inquirers. They dislike publicity and are normally retiring, often prayerful, folk who enter the public eye with great reluctance.
This placement is deeply intuitive but rarely forthcoming to others regarding the results of the inner teachings which they receive during sleep and day-dreams. A less reactive personality that prefers to "play the cards close to the chest" Chandra-12 may have a vivid inner life but security requires the maintenance of a protective shell around the flow-channel which delivers emotional experiences.
Professor Somana is tremendously absorptive and reflective of the needs and wants of others. Chandra indicates the comforting patterns of sound, light-and-shadow, temperature, texture, and nourishment which weave together a sense of safety, belonging, and routine in a settled place. Chandra is Home.
Encampment, Meditation and Research
Yet Chandra-12 is a very beneficial placement for those who need to live and work in enclosed surroundings that are somewhat distant from the public view, such as scientific research facilities, distant colonies of the motherland, prisons, enclosed encampments, cloistered meditation huts or spiritual retreat centers.
Chandra-12 will typically protect and shield intimate bedroom relationships from the peering eyes of the public.
As a dushthamsha position, Chandra-12 is considered to damage the relationship to mother. It may signal either the invisibility of the mother to the native caused by fleshdeath or the social-emotional dissolution of the relationship to the mother via "living in separate worlds" either mentally or physically.
The mother-figure is generally withdrawn and she also may seem to live in a secluded, enclosed emotional world. Often the mother is associated with some variety of sanctuary space, such as a hospital, a monastery, a camp, or a research environment. She may hail from and travel to (if only in her thoughts) a distant land. Into this walled space whether physically, emotionally, or mentally, she may frequently withdraw.
The mother is withdrawn, dreamy, preoccupied with other children or with her prayers. Or she may be deeply engaged with matters of a some enclosure such as camp, cloister, hospital, hotel, or hostel. Mother communicates intuitively with the spirits, albeit Mother might not reveal this private experience to others.
Affinity for Distant locales
With the exception of Mesha-radical nativities for whom Chandra = bandhesha, Somana-12 may feel most comfortable taking residence in places distant from the birthplace. For example in a family of 10 siblings, while most as adults may stay close to the birthplace, the Chandra-12 native is more likely than the others to move away.
Likes to sleep (12) near the ocean (Chandra) and take long oceanic journeys. Typically sleeps well unless uncomfortable drishti .
Chandra-12occupies a natural environment of Guru
Much of human self-concept derives not from others' opinions but rather from one's own feeling about oneself. The inner voice may speak in a language of emotional truth that reinforces the self-image in a way that is internally consistent and not defined by others.
In Jyotisha, it is understood that Chandra establishes this profoundly foundational sense of intuitive self-identity; and part of the character of Soma's non-rational inner voice is determined by the bhava in which Soma resides.
Chandra-12 = a dissolved and dreamlike emotional placement. One may serve as a protective, sustaining figure in 12th-angle secluded, sanctuary environments such as hospitals, prisons, monasteries, distant lands or enclosed encampments.
Chandra's karaka roles as caretaker, nurturer, parent and provider of shelter are often cherished in one's own imagination. However, bhava-12 like all of the moksha-bhava = a private place. The public rarely sees the contemplative imagery of one's 12th bhava.
The public contains one's own family, friends, co-workers, fellow religious congregants and fellow citizens inter alia. This group of viewers is much more likely to recognize the features of one's kama, artha, and dharma bhava.
Public vs Private
Thus Chandra-12 may think of oneself in the reflective imagination as a dedicated parent, steady and reliable family provider, a guardian of lands and protector of the weak... yet others may find the self-image rather imaginary when compared to the"real" tangible behaviors on public view.
Chandra-12 may feel surprised and disappointed that others do not see one's own self-view.
One sees in the mirror a Self = deeply grounded caretaker, nurturer, parent in the center of the family. However this 12-invisible image is not known to the public.
Hurt feelings and confusion may accompany the gap between the interior view and public definition.
Nourishment (Chandra) and Caretakers
Deprivation of early nurturing to the point of emotional starvation. Distancing and dissolving of the parents, especially mother. Subconscious communication remains strong. Circumstances are such that the mother may lose her material identity, although she will remain a strong influence from the realm of the ancestors.
According to the influences upon impressionable Chandra, mother may be physically present but emotionally withdrawn, or if Chandra is affected by other graha, she might disappear physically as well.
In a swabhava of religious-teacher Guru, Chandra the receptive emotionalist expands the imaginative range of sensitivity, bringing a broadened intuition into the 12th- environments.
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 parental, protective, nurturing, sheltering behaviors (Chandra) rather than the channel which develops intuitive wisdom via prophetic dreams or reflective prayer (Guru).
Chandra-12 may find deep peace in gardening, psycho-interactive relationships with plant spirits, and taking protective measures to provide sanctuary for spirit beings.
A physically defended, walled, protected place of retreat is essential for preventing undue drain upon the emotional life-force. Tendency toward emotional exhaustion (12) and illness therefore according to the rashi of the Moon.
Chandra-12 are emotionally comfortable in marine environments; they take comfort in the ocean waves and tides.
Emotionally most comfortable in environments:
naturally suited to the the habitual rhythms of
Emotional need for and attachment to:
a private personality
When Chandra occupies Bhava-12, the 7th-from-Chandra = cranky bhava-6. Mate may feel unbalanced, chronically ill , suffering pain or in conflict, perhaps feeling exploited, in servitude, or beholden to the underclass.
The main trouble with Chandra in vyaya bhava is that one ABSORBS the dream-world's vivid but often confused imagery draws into oneself. This can create emotional pressure when it is time to make firm commitments in human relationships.
Chandra-12 = 6/8 from yuvati bhava. Tendency to be emotionally withdrawn toward marriage and business partners. However, loyalty is not harmed.
Even if one is a busy public figure, one's imagination space is developed through fantasy, meditation, prayer, dreams, reading stories, watching films, etc. Feelings are enclosed and internalized into the world of imagination. Emotional need for protected, enclosed intimate relationships; sanctuary; and retreat.
Needs access to a fantasy land where the environment is passively validating. This access may be created through meditation skills or through escape into drugs and alcohol, or"private" bed-pleasure relationships -- depending on ruler-of-12 and drishti.
May be a very gifted and helpful clairsentient if one can find a safe sanctuary practice space.
Emotional trauma and enclosure of desire, rage or fear: papagraha in 12 yuti Chandra:
Papagraha sharing Chandra's rashi may tend to over-stimulate negative expressions of Chandra's imagination. If Kuja, Rahu, or Shani disturb Chandra's naturally peaceful inwardness, the need for privacy and fear of invasion of privacy can become obsessive or deranged.
Surya-yuti-Chandra in 12 = imagined ego-glory. Not necessarily harmful psychologically, but there is a gap between what the native sees in the mirror versus what the public sees in public life.
Kuja + Chandra in 12 = imagined sexual-emotional battles with siblings and competitors cause much anxiety and grief. Hyperactive imagination blows small insults wildly out of proportion. Sexual secrets.
Rahu + Chandra in 12 = graha-nagata yoga. Ambitious but private desires. Hunger for the taboo emotional object. Intensely emotionally charged pursuit of the foreign and the forbidden. Yet one may be often in denial of these desires, as this burning hunger to possess a denied Other is carefully enclosed in the private world.
Chandra-yuti-Ketu in 12 = exceptional emotional detachment. One's needs may be unknown even to oneself. Mother often rather wooden emotionally and she prefers seclusion. Disengaged from parenting roles. May have little or no memory of the dream travels. Splendid placement for advanced meditation practice. If Budha is strong, the reduced emotional load can facilitate a strong logical expression. Rahu-6 = spouse may have strong desire nature, substance misuse, crime = all of which Chandra-12 may cheerfully ignore.
Bhava-12 = Moksha, parallel lives , and return across the bridge to the astral conscious (sleep).
Benefics + Chandra in bhava-12 may induce a pleasant bedroom environment, full of emotionally grounding companionship and conversation:
Budha + Chandra in 12 =
Chandra-yuti-Zukra in 12 =
The public will not generally be aware of the fantasies which are enclosed behind the curtains of Bhava-12. the native oneself is likely to remain in denial of socially unacceptable imagery within the emotional imagination. the native may lead a pleasant and respectable public life.
Families with lineage sexual/emotional abuse patterns, which reproduce multiple generations of perpetrators, will show a strong pattern of Moon (emotions, trust, bonding) along with cruel or exploitive graha (Kuja, Shani, Rahu) in Bhava-12.
Very Challenging, then Very Successful
The worst case for sexual-emotional manipulative exploitation is usually papagraha + nichha-Chandra in Vrizchika (or Ardra or Azlesa) in Bhava-12.
However, in maturity, papagraha + nichha-Chandra in Vrizchika -12 can make a superior healer of death-transitioning (loss of material body-appearance, loss of social-personality identity).
These natives may provide extraordinary assistance to a dying person And their families at the agonizing time of death.
Chandra = emotionally hyper-perceptive in the 12th bhava = non-physical world.
Great sensitivity to the imagination, patterns of light-color-sound.
Needs quiet, distant sanctuary spaces.
Emotions expressed in a 'dissolved' style, primarily via the imagistic channel of fantasies, wishes, and dreams. Favors meditation and maternal touch healing.
Chandra-12 absorbs emotions from others sponge-like with low interpersonal boundaries; wears one's heart on one's sleeve. Wonderful for working with those who live mainly in the astral consciousness: children, the elderly, any gentle folk in a protected enclosed space. Wonderful for hands-on healers, massage therapists, any nurturing profession such as hospital nursing or infant care.
Chandra-12 may remain attached to a fantasy image of the beloved for a protracted period of time. One may feel upset by the impurity of real life, particularly the vulgar truth regarding one's partners. Comfortable in enclosures such as hospitals, monasteries, camps, ashrams, and retreat centers; ideal for protective or sanctuary work in distant lands.
Meditative daydreams and fantasies focus on themes of shelter, protection, nurturing, mother, breasts, owning property, defending one's land and nation, indoctrinating children in one's cultural roots, long ocean journeys with home on a sea-going vessel, and culling one's nourishment from the sea.
Chandra-12 was indeed a person of profound intuition and protective capabilities in a parallel life , with a strong connection to ocean life. By default, graha in Bhava-12 are 'dissolved' into astral imagery. Whether this distinction will manifest again in the current life depends on the supporting graha.
Favors scientific research into cultural roots identity and into the psychology of nurturing.
Disagreement, disappointment, emotional servitude = 6th-from-Chandra
When Chandra occupies Bhava-12, the most unbalanced environment emotionally becomes 6th-from-12th = putra-putriki bhava-5.
Although the mother may love her children very deeply, the realities of her life are arranged in such a way that the single most emotionally conflicted environment for her is very likely centered in her dealings with her children.
Often the nature of the challenge comes from mother's need to feel grounded via a withdrawn, cloistered, or sanctuary space such as a hospital, retreat center, research laboratory, monastery, imaginative environment, or distant land. Depending on conditions in Bhava-5, eventually the likelihood increases of feeling affective difficulties due to disagreements with children - in particular, with the eldest child.
Such a mother may be doing her utmost at all times to provide nurturing care and protection to her children. However the realities of servitude, exploitation, illness, indebtedness, betrayal, or pollution may be focused into her creative and procreative endeavors.
Commonly, the conflict is framed between her caretaking roots is a sanctuary environment such as a hospital, dormitory, monastery or perhaps a distant world, versus the demands of politics, children, creativity, gambling, and fun. Such a mother enjoys little and works much.
Children, though she may love them, may feel like enslavers and to compound the challenge the children may be frequently ill or adversarial in attitude. Though she may want political change or dramatic amusements, politics and drama create a conflicted experience resulting in problems, accusations, and disagreements.
The putrapathi ruler of bhava-5 tends to produce a feeling of emotional servitude (giving more than one receives) during its Vimshottari period, and the raising of children can be a particular source of accusations, arguments, disappointment or exploitative overwork. The maternal grandmother, represented by 4th-from-Chandra bhava-3, can be a helpful resource or not, depending upon graha in 3.
Even when the children have grown to adulthood, one tends to disagree with one's children and their choices.
Children and divine intelligence = Bhava-5 = 6th-from-Chandra;
Emotional stress and conflict felt in regard to matters of theatrical performance, politics, and brilliance -- also gambling and games, fashion, celebrity and royalty, and speculative finance.
Unless there are strong graha in 5, one may feel emotionally unsuited to carry out the requirements of raising children. Servitude toward the creative element prevents permission for basking in the limelight of a radiant dramatic event. As result, one may feel enslaved to the task of creative performance .Chandra-12 is naturally uncomfortable being in the hot, attention-getting center of things. Disliking the creative chaos and noisy egocentricity of the creative arts, one prefers the quiet privacy and seclusion of meditation, retreat, enclosure, imagination, private prayer.
|Male Chandra-12|| |
The man may experience his mother as distant and dispersed. Accustomed to isolation, he replicates the emotional distancing behaviors in relation to his own wife and children = a distant parent.
Spiritual practice or intellectual research or drug stupor may facilitate this goal of achieving retreat from the source of nurturing. This man has accommodated mother's detachment since infancy, and Chandra's rhythmic patterns continue..
|Female Chandra-12|| |
Chandra-12 female = either connect intuitively, non-verbally to her mother or not connect at all. Limited access to the mother's lineage identity.
Mother is a very private, withdrawn person concerned with private rhythms and habits, and the daughter being emotionally identified with the mother, follows this behavioral model.
"... encourages some worldly engagements, which lead to worldly reactions.
Pleasures of sex, the arts, dabbling in various subjects without a sincere desire to find truth, and so on, lead to the kinds of unwanted displeasure that come to us all to different degrees.
You have the Moon (mind-significator) in the 12th house (liberation from worldly entanglement).
Moon in the 12th causes damage to the left eye .
You suffer anxiety from"enemies " or"opposition".
The eyes suffer.
You are a philanthropist.
You are not attached to the opposite sex in general or at some point it becomes important that you give up that attachment.
You undo yourself at times -- subvert your own life with your own thinking, which may or may not be a bad thing.
You may have problems with addictions of some type, not necessarily bad ones, but some type.
You have a hard time maintaining your morals, and with health.
The relatives of your parents are annoying to you.
The appetite is weakened by this Moon. Deprived of good food, incur wasteful expenditure, will be of angry nature, unhappy, will not be liked by others ."
