When Chandra occupies bhava-2 * the radical lagna is located in 12th-from-Chandra. One has a natural affinity for12th-from matters such as distant worlds, sanctuary spaces, enclosures, and retreat into invisibility. Chandra-2 needs to contain, collect and conserve.

Although attached to the family lineage and its historical values of knowledge, wealth, speech and song, Chandra-2 is prone to withdraw into contemplative or secluded environments. The enclosure may be a library, an artists studio, research laboratory, meditative retreat, distant lands, or one's own imagination. This angles is a signature of the researcher and seeker of privacy, often found in cloistered or sequestered 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.

  1. Somana + Kuja * Emotionally competitive
  2. Somana + Budha * Emotionally communicative
  3. Somana + Guru* Emotionally effusive* Emotionally expansive
  4. Somana + Zukra* Emotionally indulgent
  5. Somana + Shani * Emotionally constricted
  6. Somana + Surya* Emotionally entitled * Emotionally self-focused
  7. Somana + Rahu* Emotionally expedient
  8. Somana + Ketu* Emotionally scattered

Comforted by Collections

Chandra-2 is a story-teller and a storage agent. One needs to learn and retell the history of the family lineage * kutumbha. Again and again, Chandra-2 tells the stories and sings the songs.

Chandra-2 speaks, sings, recounts the poems, songs and stories of a people. Chandra-2 conserves the legacy and values of a lineage: treasuries of mythical and historical knowledge, herds of genetically kept animals, hoards of capital wealth, databases, libraries, warehouses. Chandra is a collector and a keeper.

Chandra-2 needs constant engagement with the family of origin, with language, historical knowledge, and with financial wealth treasuries.

Chandra-2 is often known as the "anchor of the family". Chandra-2 in any rashi is emotionally rooted in matters of genetics and family lineage. Yet any additional graha in bhava-2 can complicate this orientation. Particularly Shani creating a nishturabashi yoga can freeze the family flow.

However barring the influence of other graha in bhava-2, Chandra-2 = generally healthy financially privileged and wise, with intuitive knowledge of plants of the fields and forests, an understanding of lands and landscapes, herd animals (2), banking, warehousing, food and other collectibles, storage and restoration (including restaurants).

A pleasant and artistic person, often blessed with capital acquisitions, who enjoys the pleasures of earthly life.

Bhava-2 = food, mouth, voice, song, speech, family, treasuries of valuable goods and conserved knowledge, death

Often concerned with Books and Songs as devices for storing recorded lineage history knowledge

Exceptionally sensitive to accumulated values, family history, and perceived wealth

Chandra in Zukra's natural domain

Speech that is comfortable and familiar (Chandra) to the people

Professor Zukra who is the natural owner of classroom-2, dislikes His tenant Lord Soma; Zukra sees Chandra as an enemy

a sensual mouth

Chandra in classroom-3 = 11th from Soma's natural residence bandhu bhava, is usually advantageous for matters of social networking, gains of income especially in regard to schools, landed properties and vehicles.

The emotional relationship to the family history, one's sense of one's genetic predispositions and precedent in the family line, feels supportive of one's material goals (11).

Emotionally most comfortable in environments:

historic values of an ethnicity = financial, nutritional, religious, cultural, artistic, musical

  • 95 Theses 1483-1549 Protestant Reformation Martin Luther * pulling away from the Mediterranean origins of Judeo-Christian legacy, Luther initiated the nationalization (Chandra, ethnicity) of the religious practices of Germanic peoples, especially vernacular language

historic preservation

  • Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt * architect

the family history = farmers, fishers, people of place, deeply rooted in local customs, rituals

transmission of tradition

  • POTUS-16 Emancipation Proclamation Abraham Lincoln was famed for his public addresses to the citizens, the Civil War Troops, and members of Congress. His words were deeply rhythmic and understandable to all. His speeches were covered in detail by the newspaper media and his chosen words became deeply influential.

collections, gathering of assets, storage

singing, songs, traveling bards who transmit historical tales

spokesperson or "mouth" for elemental nature spirits

  • VPOTUS-42 Climate Change Al Gore + Guru

wealth, banking, sensual luxury

Wants to be surrounded by collections of natural resources: art, music, plants, trees, natural products such as wine and perfume, food and wood, fine textiles. Immersed in historical lineage knowledge

  1. In a rashi of Surya, history of the father

  2. In a rashi of Chandra, history of the land and culture, the family, the ocean

  3. In a rashi of Mangala, history of warfare, of competition, of birth

  4. In a rashi of Budha, history of information management, of commerce, of the siblings

  5. In a rashi of Guru, historical teachings, history of beliefs, doctrine and preachings

  6. In a rashi of Zukra, historical art and design

  7. In a rashi of Shani, historical structures, stones, wood, bones

Strong emotional attachment to the family history, the mother's elder siblings (11th from 4th), and the legacy values of one's people .

Needs connection to The hoards.

Needs historical memory

Needs to serve as a vessel for the expression (mouthpiece) of stored wealth.

The main trouble with Chandra in dhana bhava is that one ABSORBS the human quest for acquisition and storage into oneself.

This can create emotional pressure to retain control , exactly when it is time to liberate, release and let go.

The family = kutumbha, 2 = strongly identified with large material or historical values collections, luxuries (Luxmi-Zukra), business finances, lineage associations such as bloodlines, and stored food, art, knowledge, or money.

Needs to see oneself as a bearer of traditional ethnic values esp. of art, song, ancient knowledge, wealth and beauty.

Deep emotional engagement with the history of one's people (conscious or unconscious).

Chandra-2 sees oneself as a historical person , someone with a role to play in the development of a bloodline or values tradition.

Emotional need to store, accumulate, conserve, and perpetuate the lineage values and knowledge of one's people.

Chandra-2 Koza-bhava = Family Lineage History


Spring Blossoms in Central Park, New York City

Emotionally conservative, stays within the limits set by the upbringing and expectations of the family. One identifies emotionally with the family business, or feels a strong tie to a historic lineage descending through the family.

"Family" is not always biological or adoptive. Family can be redefined as "the people who take care of me" in contexts such as a religious fellowship or a political machine.

Mother = a carrier of traditional values. She is the family historian. Mother = conservative by nature; dedicated to the acquisition of financial wealth and retention of lineage cultural values. Mother is often distinctively concerned with money and storage.

Since dhana bhava = 6th-from-9th, when Chandra occupies classroom-2 there is a natural conflict between one's father and one's mother - due mainly to the mother's material acquisitiveness and staunch conservatism. The mother may appear stubborn and backward-looking to the father - especially if classroom-9 is energized.

Naturally the drishti of Shani, Kuja, Rahu-Ketu or a dushthamsha lord upon Soma will alter this favorable prognosis.

Male Chandra-2 seeks a mate with his mother's conservative, family-based values.

Male Chandra-2 imitates the mother's traditional, materially acquisitive, nature-conservationist emotional orientation.

6th-from-Chandra * Disagreement, disappointment, emotional servitude related to matters of bhava-7

When Chandra occupies classroom-2, the most difficult house emotionally becomes 6th-from-2nd = yuvati bhava. The first marriage, particularly the public presentation of the first marriage, is likely to become a topic of emotional conflict due to the geometry of bhava-7 = 6th-from-Chandra.

The public facade of the second marriage is typically easier to maintain, but much depends upon graha in 3.

  • Superman 1952-2004 tetraplegia Christopher Reeve maintained a decade-long relationship with the mother of his first two children. However typical of 7th-from-Chandra-2 = bhava-8, the first partner was shy of the limelight. They never formally married. Although he remained devoted to his children until his untimely death, soon after their parting, he formed a new relationship which was legalized with a formal marriage ceremony. Mr. Reeve had the extra complication of Chandra-Vrizchika * nichha + Mangala in bhava-2, which creates a considerable Kuja-Dosha into 7th-from-Chandra-2; also no graha in neutral bhava-3 and ruler of 3 in 7 does clear the way for socially easier 2nd partnership.

Depending on conditions in classroom-7, there will be affective difficulties due to disagreements with the spouse and equal partners in alliances. The lord of Yuvati will produce emotional servitude (giving more than one receives) during its Vimshottari period.

  • The husband-wife-partner = a particular agent of that problem of disappointment or exploitative overwork. Regardless of the number of marriages, the spouse and the marriage contract will continue to demand more in service than they reward. The first marriage (classroom-7) is particularly problematic.

The partnership and agreements house = classroom-7 = 6th-from-Chandra;

naturally marital discomfort can arise.

  • Unless there are strong graha in 7, one may feel emotionally unsuited to the task of maintaining a harmonious marriage or other partnership.

  • As a result one may feel emotionally enslaved to life's primary alliance or union .

Das / Bepin Behari commentary upon Chandra-2


"makes you very talkative, prosperous, of sound body and have a very charming personality.

  • Romantic, finds pleasure in other peoples company - ignoring your own spouse and family.

  • The 2nd house stands for wealth, finance and hereditary position.

Full Moon in this house bestows you with promising progeny and wealth; but, if it is dark or feeble, you may stammer, be poor and unwise.

Sensitive to the changing Moon.

You have many friends and are soft spoken.

You may suffer from poor digestion and loss of appetite.

Dark or feeble Moon, despite benefic aspect,

  • causes loss of acquired or inherited property, and obstructs earning and acquisition of financial wealth any further.

You will enjoy incomparable happiness and friends and will be wealthy.

You will be plentiful in wealth and grains, be physically sound, spend your time joyously with the opposite sex, famous, and wise.

  • You may lose money on account of your sisters and daughters."
