Professor Chandra's special area of instruction is emotional sensitivity, absorption of feelings from the local environment, and emotional reaction or response.
Chandra-6 is especially sensitive to the unbalanced environment of bhava-6 which includes the experiences of ailment, injury, complaint, accusation, pollution, toxicity, injustice, disagreement, exploitation, addiction, servitude, broken promises, betrayal, and most of all -- criticism.
Chandra-6 often indicates mother-figures who are dedicated to human service yet who can be jealous and emotionally exploitive. In the lifescript of the nativity, typically the mother-figures are scripted agents of criticism and guilt.
These mother-figures may also be medical workers, and they may have many complaints of their own such as hormonal imbalances which produce sicknesses, debt, domestic (Chandra) servitude (6), and crime or conflict according to the rashi, the ruler, and incoming drishti. Chandra is exceptionally impressionable; incoming drishti is potent.
Chandra-6 senses the fluctuations of conflict between the parents, unspoken accusations, welled-up resentments which spill into arguments, and the unvoiced cries of the vulnerable. It is a position of hypersensitivity to all of the ailments of this world - and thus, the perfect basis for a lifetime ministry of service. One may suffer diseases of a watery nature, such as pneumonia (grief) or oedema (fear). They are often acutely aware of sorrow.
The parents are typically obedient workers. However, Chandra-6 parents may also work professionally in the medical, social ministry, or other educated service roles. Frequently as well, the mother suffers a definitive illness.
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.
Ashtamsha * angle 8th-from * impetus toward next-step
One of the lifetime challenges of Chandra-6 is that any graha transiting across the radical lagna automatically produces the forced-transformation effects of ashtamsha * 8th-from. Whatever comfortable, enhancing, or uplifting outcomes of ashtama transits there may be, these outcomes are always compounded by the mandate to take the next step (8).
It is a lifetime of radical transformations revealing mysterious truths which are usually accompanied by sickness or injury. Nevertheless these incarnations are exceptionally compassionate and often produce remarkable healers of the spirit.
Serve or Suffer * Service to the Seasick
To feel comfortable, Chandra-6 needs an oscillating pattern of events in a service ministry (for example, medical appointments or regularly scheduled classes serving displaced persons).
Needs a rhythmically fluctuating pattern of logical argumentation (for example medical treatment plans, military strategic discourse, or social-work case plans) .
Needs an oscillating pattern of imbalance reaching balance then reverting to imbalance, aiming toward a condition of insufficiency, accusation, or exploitation.
Depending on the rashi of Chandra, Professor Somana-6 may be emotionally well suited to ministries of professional service such as teaching marginalized or insufficient classes of students, providing military defense in conflicted situations, handling domestic violence or other "broken" accusatory environments, and other professional expressions of empathetic and parental (Chandra) skill.
Often injured, often sick, continues to serve
Logical and Sensitive
Chandra-6 is often particularly gifted with the argumentation of testing and assessing insufficiencies, and may serve in a gateway function as a medical, educational, social-services, or military proficiency tester.
Chandra-6 needs to be engaged in a position of emotional response supporting (Chandra) those who are suffering a state of imbalance. Thus Chandra-6 seems to experience more than their fair share of jealousy, illness, poverty, exploitation, animosity etc. particularly in regard to parental-figures.
Chandra-6 may seem to suffer a mismatch (6) to the fundamental rhythms of one's home culture. This basic imbalance afflicts the over-serving, blamed or exploited mother. The dizziness of Chandra-6 destabilizes all those agents who play roles which provide grounding, roots, belongingness, and a sense of place.
Until the essential discrimination (6) between effective and ineffective types of response-to-the-suffering-world is established, one may feel like "a rolling stone" tumbling along a bumpy, unstable path of life expression.
However there are no victims. Chandra-6 is a challenging dusthamsha position emotionally as one seems to be frequently accused, exploited and scapegoated by the very figures who should be nurturing and protective * Saumana shelter.
Yet the affliction has a fairly easy cure. The cure is not blind servitude or succumbing to exploitation, but rather skillful and compassionate service to those who are sailing turbulent, uneven seas (Chandra). The misbehaving, blaming agents are literally seasick.
The purpose is not to use one's own emotional reserves to fix or intervene in the affairs of others. Rather the purpose is purely personal and remedial: one seeks to establish (Chandra) * within oneself * an ability to respond compassionately to people and environments that demonstrate unfair, unjust, exploitive, toxic, criminal behaviors (6).
Importantly, compassionate response must be skillful in order to be effective. Therefore if one acknowledges simply not having the necessary skills to deal with the difficult person or situation, the correct compassionate response is often to remain sensitive (Chandra) to the presence of an Earth-being in distress whilst in terms of activity *doing nothing*.
When Chandra-6 is able to discriminate (6) between skillful and non-skillful response to the adversarial agents, success in service is assured.
Typically, Chandra-6 is poised to respond to problematic and conflicted realms of the human experience such as medical, military, litigious and criminal environments (including pollution toxicity, unfair discrimination, jealousy, gluttony, greed, usury et-cetera etc).
In these inherently imbalance environments usually the problems of the human conditions can be defined and "treated" but due to a planetary need to utilize conflicted experiences for karmic purposes, these problems cannot be permanently resolved.
Service should not be understood as demeaning or a sign of inferiority in any way. Rather, this placement of Chandra indicates high spiritual awareness (albeit often unconscious) of the ultimate spiritual path that is the way of sacrifice.
While sustaining longer term human contracts may be emotionally draining, the higher interests are being intensely served. There is no opportunity for complacency which the illusory stability of human-to-human trust might encourage for more grounded placements of Chandra.
The socially designated caretakers may have failed to protect one's interests during childhood, and one may be falsely accused of crimes or illicit actions, especially during periods of ruler of 6th-from-Chandra. Scapegoat for the misdeeds of the parents, who blame the victim.
Mother is a servant of any type, clinician, nurse, social-worker, druggist, physician, or protector of the unbalanced. Frequent illness and pain, always emotionally founded.
Chandra-6 must monitor for signs of physical and emotional exhaustion in order to prevent seva burn-out which could damage the effectiveness of the this powerful, yet delicate path.
One's Father and one's maternal grandfather Chandra-6 creates a unique situation between the birth father (9)and the father of the birth mother (maternal grandfather, 9th-from-Chandra). 9th-from-Chandra-6 = bhava-2. The agents in 2 are also 6th-from-9th therefore they are enemies of the father.
No matter how lovely or how challenging may be the graha occupying bhava-2, the basic dynamic of the relationship between ones father and one's maternal grandfather is adversarial .
The topic of disagreement is often values specifically historical or financial, because bhava-2 represents knowledge, memory, storage, banking, savings, and value acquisition. Rahu-2 amplifies and exaggerates the situation whereas Shani-2 makes it respectful but intractable.
Some routine rhythmic pattern of sickness, disorder or disability according the Chandra's rashi
Bhava-6 = disproportion
Chandra sees Budha as a Friend, but Budha sees Chandra as an Enemy
Imbalanced, conflicted, or ill parents
parents are often ill and may be unable to honor their parents contract (predecease is one reason that they cannot parent)
Emotionally attached to medicines, military, mismatched pairs, ministries of service
matrikaraka Chandra = caretaker and mother-figures use emotionally toxic criticism, accusation, emotional attacks. There may be a higher than normal incidence of encounters with protector-figures who suffer Borderline Personality Disorder. Colloquially, Chandra06 may become a "Borderline PD Magnet". Ironically and painfully, those in the role of qualified caretaker (such as mother, grandmother, schoolteacher, or nurse) may become the most vindictive.
Mother may have deep health problems and one may 'inherit' the emotions which recreate the mother's imbalances in one's own body as well.
Parents (Chandra) in service to the nation, an institution, or to a government leader
Mother may have defining medical problems
One with Chandra in the adversarial Satkona has an affection for the downtrodden, the ill, and criminals or those suffering the debilitating effects of broken contracts.
However, Chandra-6 is not oneself a criminal. Nevertheless, Chandra-6 may be falsely accused of crimes.
Argumentative, ministerial, medicinal protector
The enemies are habitual relations within the family; often the parents are accusers. A scenario can develop (if Chandra's lord is ill disposed) wherein the parents (Chandra) personal behavior is actually illicit and the child with Chandra-6 becomes "scapegoat" for the parents' misdoings.
Emotionally attached to the mother's relatives.
Chandra-6 = typically a problematic attachment due to the characteristically unbalanced, exploitive, disproportionate environment of the satkona.
Emotionally toxic or abusive conditions are typical. The mother is often an 'enabler' personality who whilst a loving mother herself does permit the abuses to flourish on her home-watch.
Chandra in Ari bhava-6 = 3rd (mental narrative) from Soma's natural residence Bandhu bhava (security) = not always an advantageous placement emotionally.
Chandra-6 = a deep service affinity that seeks to protect servants, animals, victims, the impoverished, and the ill,
Chandra-6 childhood conditions are overly complex and one lives in a state of distrust and emotional upset.
Every bhava has its own special intelligence, and Chandra always signals the 'conditions of happiness' as an comfortably rhythmic emotional state.
Bhava-6 offers numerous capabilities which must, for the sake of feeling happy, be put into a ministry of service of the self-distrusting and the imbalanced.
Trines of 6:
Kendra of 6:
Bhava-6 = 9th (public spiritual guidance) from 10th (lawful governance, profession) + 10th from 9th.
From any rashi lagna, Chandra-6 = a workhorse servant-leader for the public good.
Bhava 6 = 3rd (relatives) from 4th (mother)
If Chandra's lord also occupies 6th-from-Chandra = Betrayal by the mother's relatives.
Both Chandra-6 and one's own parents are emotionally grounded through professionalized (10) service work .
Both of the parents (Chandra) may have health issues.
Both parents will have some tendency to self-medicate; father's inner conflict should be measured by the angle from Chandra to Surya; if this angle is easy, he maybe less upset.
Chandra in a bhava of argumentative, litigious Budha
The female native generally inherits her mother's (Chandra) service dilemma .
Typically for the Thula lagna, karmapathi Chandra-6 can feel emotionally overwhelmed by professional pressures. Atypically, Whitney's Chandra-Revati sits within a few degrees of Guru-Revati-6, signifying both the husband and self-medication with toxic drugs.
One develops as an adult, a chronic inability to achieve a satisfying balance emotional needs. Fulfillment of service instincts is easier and feels more natural.
The feminine nativity may experience a lifetime of unrelenting domestic servitude. However this is not always a bad situation. It is more important, for spiritual purposes, to consciously understand what doesn't work (blaming others) than to glide smoothly through an already-easy course of life.
Thus, much wisdom may be gained in this position. The final outcome may be very beneficial spiritually: not only for oneself but also for those countless beneficiaries of one's own professionalized, emotionally engaged, and dedicated service.
The male native
May spend a great portion of his life engaged in emotional conflict with women. Periods of rogesha-6 are particularly acute.
One suffers from a habitually (Chandra) blaming, argumentative"diagnostic" emotional (Soma) narrative (Budha) which quickly (Budha) points out the flaws and failings of others -- especially the contractual partners.
The mother of such a male has herself endured an early childhood life full of conflict, accusations, regret, and often bitter sorrow at the perceived wrongdoing of some parent.
6 = 3rd-from-4th = mother's relatives
The mother's relative's have inordinate influence upon the emotional development, and Chandra-6 is born with an affinity for exploitive, underpaid, overworked ministries of service.
Natural bhava of argumentative, accusatory Budha hosts By far the most difficult position for Chandra.
Unbalanced emotional environment in childhood, characterized by parental (Chandra) disagreement and distrust, disavowal of promises, divorce, debt, self-doubt, devaluation of intuition and emotional instinct, dastardly deeds of the partner (betrayal of trust), not to mention emotional origin of immune-protective and digestive disorders.
The parents (Chandra) are mismatched (6).
The emotionally unbalanced parents * especially mother * are overworked often in exploitive employee or service roles. They acquire conditions of physical toxicity to match their emotional valence of disenfranchised
One feels criticized , absorbs and internalizes conflict and illness, and reflects the external components of toxicity, disagreement, and imbalance in one's environment.
Caretaker (Chandra) of victims: those in poverty, animosity, inequity, debt, or disease.
Dispute (6) with parents (Chandra). Native often leave home (Chandra) early due to dispute.
Parents ill and chronically overworked (6) especially mother
One is Often falsely accused of being the cause of conflict.
"Shoot the messenger."
Chandra-6 reflects disagreement and inequity = brighter or dimmer mirroring according to the fullness of the Moon, and Soma's proximity to Rahu. Chandra-yuti-Rahu in 6 becomes notorious.
This native does not create (Surya)"problems " but simply reflects (Chandra) the existing victimization logic present in the environment at birth.
However if Surya also in 6 (black Moon), one may personally help to create some brilliant center-stage conflicts of one's own. If Surya + Chandra-yuti-Budha in 6 = a virtual genius of problematicity .)
Especially close emotional attachment to maternal relatives - although these may be the most vicious accusers.
When Chandra occupies 6, one reflects the existing adversarial conditions in the social and material environment like a bright mirror for all to see. (Brighter or dimmer according to the fullness of the Moon.)
For example, a child with Chandra-6 may"act out" or demonstrate or display the conflict between one's parents (Chandra) and become a scapegoat for the parents unacknowledged fighting. In the unfortunate karma of Chandra-6, such a child may be criticized for"causing trouble".
Period of rogesha-6 = particularly prone to false accusation and blaming by those who wish to deflect attention away from true originators and toward a mirror-image of the problem.
Similarly a novelist, essayist, film-maker, song-writer or other social critic may be fingered as the inciting cause of social conflict; however such a native with Chandra in 6 is merely reflecting he the existing social controversy
excellent placement for attorneys, social critics, social workers, police and military, those who represent, reflect, and rationalize conflicts via medical, legal, and pastoral service
Chandra = in a swabhava of accusative, accounting, rationalizing, tale-telling Budha
Chandra = passive, receptive, absorptive, and reflective. Unlike Chandra's son Budha who represents the human capacity for logical thought and verbal-gestural mentality, Chandra negotiates reality via the human faculty of intuitive feeling .
Chandra is not necessarily irrational or illogical but rather Chandra = meta-logical.
Chandra interprets all reality in a holistic, whole-body way that contains an element of rational response but which is generally reactive, responsive, and presumptive driven more by subconscious expectations and unmet needs and less by rational methods of analysis and inquiry.
Unlike Budha, whose ratiocinations can lead the mind into false conclusions, Chandra's psycho-emotional response to the world is usually accurate -- according to Chandra-6 's subconscious expectations.
However, when overlaid with Budha's narrative mentality, Chandra's absorptive-reflective function in 6 serves to mirror and highlight the painful, accusatory narratives of jealousy, domestic servitude, crime, exploitation, addiction, pollution, inequity, chronic imbalance causes disease, and all varieties of toxicity caused by ignorance of the location of the balance point in relationships.
These miserable narratives are then absorbed, internalized into Chandra-6 's own larger"mind".
The good news is that through a combination of Seva and applied discrimination of a well--placed Budha, Chandra-6 can over time learn to distinguish between the reflected narrative of various dramatic external conflicts versus the natural placid internal peacefulness of the Earth-mother Moon.
Naturally this placement bears great caution in the company one keeps. Being exceptionally vulnerable to intuitive reception of the slightest conflict in one's immediate environment, and being also vulnerable to false accusation and blame due to so perfectly mirroring the conflicts of others, Chandra-6 must exercise discrimination in relationships.
Chandra = emotional predisposition toward of disappointment and dissolution of partnership
Feelings are never incorrect; feelings simply respond to the environment.
Yet feelings can be be severely over-determined by subconscious bondage to parallel life experience.
Chandra in 6, responding to deep, historically rooted expectations of broken promises and disappointments, indicates a perpetual cycle (Chandra) of criticism, emotional pollution from angry or jealous people in the environment, disagreement, and repetition of the victim-narrative.
Emotional reaction to the ever-present-conflict may prevent Chandra-6 from ever feeling happily balanced or accepted by the partner.

Sicknesses and injuries
Typically Chandra-6 is persistently but non-fatally sick during most their short life. The ailments fluctuate and vary (Chandra flow) . Although frequent, sicknesses do not in themselves afflict the longevity. Look to the rogesha and ruler of 6th-from-Chandra for details of the psycho-physical imbalance conditions.
If Mangala's drishti enters 6, this adds possibility of physical injury in addition to ailment. However the default is emotional injury caused by disappointment in the faithlessness of the caretakers.
Regardless of illness, one may live a long life. Decease occurs, as always, during period of maraka graha.
When Chandra occupies bhava-6 * the radical lagna is located in 8th-from-Chandra. One has a special affinity for 8th-matters such as hidden patterns, secret knowledge, and tantric or occult practices.
Chandra-6 seeks comfort in problem-solving and is particularly sensitive to the sick, wounded, or victimized. This angle is a signature of the wounded healer, often found in healing ministries of service such as clinical medicine and social work, including the modern specialization of human-resources.
The way the game is played * via the script: to evoke the shamanistic memories of other lifetimes and other identities (8), when Chandra occupies 6, the specific game scenario is that those who have agreed to support and protect one (Chandra) have also agreed to mistreat and betray one (6).
Certain Jyotisha placements can be especially challenging and uncomfortable until their core patterns and purposes are understood.
Examples of such exhausting and frustrating situations include pre-aware environments of
Rogabhava-6 is governed by mentalized Profess Budha who profoundly dislikes emotionally sensitive and reactive Professor Chandra
Chandra in bhava-6 does not per se harm the marketplace revenues, the public reputation, the professional opportunities, the marriage, or the spiritual intelligence. The native may be creative, innovative, or competitive from other planetary sources. However Chandra-6 creates a special task which is to move from a birth in which the caretakers fail to keep their promises and even become overtly adversarial, into a state of appreciation for their ability to mirror one's own interior imbalances (usually self distrust) and finally an efficient decision to forgive in order to clear the pathway to self-fulfillment.
Darkness before the Dawn
Difficult Jyotisha placement often follow the pattern of the darkness before the dawn.
With Shani-8, it is often the darkness of social resistance to the unknown, fear of knowledge, and a crippling fear of change. Only when catastrophic upheaval forces a new identity does one discover the life-force vitality underneath the bony shell.
With Surya-7, the darkness may feel like a grayed mirror that blocks out creativity and fun, due to a theatrical, egocentric partner appearing to consume all attentions; only when the marriage ends does one see one's own bright genius.
With Chandra-6, it is only after neither home nor homeland, parent nor co-parent, schoolteacher nor police, nor any feigned guardian or shelter, have failed to uphold (6) their social agreement (7) to provide external support and nourishment, that one discovers a reliable internal rhythm supplying the steady pulse of service which does not depend upon any material contract, trust, or deal.
Game rules: Chandra occupies 6
There must be habitual, rhythmic, repeating (Chandra) scenarios and surroundings of exploitation, unfair contracts, misuse and abuse of servants, disappointed expectations, and other injustices (bhava-6)
Chandra-figures such as mothers, caretakers, schoolteachers, patriots, parents, police, security officers, and other agents who are identified with guard-and-protect nurturance roles, must then (according to the rules of the game) demonstrate the unfair, inappropriate, un-contractual, imbalanced, adversarial, hostile, criminal and corrupt 6-angle behaviors.
Importantly, one feels (Chandra) often unfairly treated when personally carrying-out caretaking-protective roles.
Co-parents tend to be unreliable in matters of feeding or securing the house, the children or other vulnerable inhabitants of the shelter such as pets and elders). For Chandra-6, co-parents tend to ignore or neglect their caretaking trust (most typical) break their promises (6), or in rare extreme worst case may have criminal tendencies.
If the protective duties are more of a policing or boundary-defense nature, the colleagues may be similarly unsupportive to the point of overt criminal acts. One may find that one's own home culture and roots-rhythms are not reliable, that the mother's relatives (6) are emotionally toxic, neglecting or accusing (typical) and not supportive as social agreements (7) would implicitly expect ( 6-12th-from-7th).
Yet with Chandra-6 one is emotionally attached to the mother's relatives , and to servants and to animals of the household, however toxic or untrustworthy they may be.
One may form an attachment (Chandra) to children of the second spouse (6 = 5th-from-2) yet such a child tends to become adversarial.
One may feel attached to the public reputation or career duties attached to governance roles for a temple, university, or sangha (6 = 10th-from-9th) yet these responsibilities may be performed with little contractual support.
Polluted Guardian Figures
The overall business and marriage status of contracts during the lifetime depends upon bhava-7 and its ruler. But Chandra-6 shows that in matters of householding and caretaking , and particularly regarding one's own parents during childhood, emotional (Somana) trust in the stability, protection and care tends to be broken, disagreed, accused and toxified by polluted guardian figures. Chandra-6 does not damage the spousal function, but rather the guarding-nurturing functions. Therefore one's spouse may be a loyal and engaged partner, yet in their role as a co-parent there is disappointment and accusation. The mother's relatives are often dishonest, disagreeable, or litigious.
Even the homeland roots (Chandra) are less stable; and agents of the homeland such as foreign embassies are not helpful.
The native rarely receives help from the grand-parents since Chandra-6 suggests a chronic lack of support from one's own parents or parents-in-law. If these agents do help, it is dysfunctional help. More often, parents, step-parents, schoolteachers, police, and other guardian-figures are not only unhelpful but may be explicitly hostile and accusing.
Furthermore, the native (and one's mother) are likely beset with many illnesses and injuries from birth, and the daily domestic servitude of parenting-childcare increases the experience of ailment, jealousy, poverty, and a host of other disabilities associated with ancient patterns of injustice in human affairs.
Parents, Protectors, and Caretakers * Service Ministries
Before the age of Chandra's maturity at age 24, there is a pronounced degree of domestic servitude and betrayal by precisely those entrusted with one's care. Those who break the contract (6) include Chandra-figures such as police, schoolteachers, guardians, and caretakers. Notable trust-breakers include the mother's relatives because 6 = 3rd-from-4th. After age 24, the feeling of victimization can mature into an acceptance of disappointment and exploitation as normal features of life.
In addition to their unfair behaviors toward the native, 6-Chandra caretaker-figures may also serve with distinction in medical, military, and other service professions. Habitual parental neglect is often a consequence of parents-mother-caretaker pursuing a service profession and serving others while neglecting one's own children's needs.
Their professionalized service may be socially respected, even while they may mistreat the native. Particularly when Chandra rules a public-respect bhava such as 1,4,7, 9, or 10 the disparity between the public perception of the Chandra-figures and the native's authentic emotional reality may provide yet another source of suffering.
Chandra: distress and disappointment, goes way back
Typically the primary caregiver(s) do themselves suffer some species of illness, often physically diagnosable. Yet this is a lineage placement; the antecedents of the Chandra-parent's imbalance lie indeed in their own ill or injured parent (s). Understanding the ancient rhythms of sorrow in the emotional patterns of the family history can be key to utilizing this placement to best advantage.
Depending upon Chandra's ruler, the emotionally based illness and injury may range from mental to emotional to physical to financial, social, and other expressions; however the foundation of the disappointment, dissatisfaction and disagreement is always emotional and always traceable to deficient parenting.

Chandra periods generate emotional experiences characterized by Chandra's temporal bhava-6.
The steady, rhythmic, ritualized, repeating-cycle of feelings is centered in social exploitation and class conflict, disease and imbalance conditions, litigious accusations, and (ideally) expressed via a ministry of service.
Chandra periods are generally placid, albeit the bhava ruled by Chandra anchors the type of social activity and the material outcome.

Usury, treachery, betrayal
Often either a perpetrator or a victim of unfair penalties or usurious loans.

Emotional condition = "Serve or suffer."a committed service lifestyle will be satisfying; but no other pursuits will provide emotional health.
Lives a somewhat disagreeable life.
Perpetual emotionally based interpersonal conflict = not inherent in Soma-6, but due to Chandra's reflective nature it does at first seem so!
In 6, in a rashi of Surya = uncomfortable for children. Less lucky in life. Wants to feel admired, center-stage in a high-conflict political or theatrical settings, including medical drama especially of the heart and spine. Excellent for pediatric physician, especially congenital disease, cardiology and spinal specialties.
In a rashi of Chandra = uncomfortable for the parents. Breast illness of mother. Overweight, malfunction of the liquid-balancing systems of the body. Deep emotional imbalance, usually expressed via misguided parenting and caretaking that maintains a dysfunctional family. Life is a soap opera. Leaky aura and poor emotional boundaries maintain a lifelong state of exhaustion from chronic illness, debt, and disagreement; but also attracted to and comfortable with codependency and other malfunctions of the protective instinct.
In a rashi of Mangala for example Theory of Relativity 1879-1955 Physics Albert Einstein = competitive, adversarial, attached to brothers and cousins. A sexually unbalanced person; needs vigorous movement to release conflict energy. Seeks conditions of exploitation and domestic (Chandra) servitude (6). Passive-aggressive. May be moody and argumentative, despite outward success. The mother is active in business but rarely is she happy. Drishti of Mangala may bring wealth via exploitive business practice.
In a rashi of Budha = exceptionally argumentative . Must have some enemy, real or imagined, against whom to rail . Attached to younger siblings. Depending on the condition of Budha, this one can talk incessantly about poverty, servitude, inequity and the travails of the world without much lasting improvement. Supportive placement for single-issue politician, a poverty lawyer or a divorce attorney.
In a rashi of Guru one may be a priestly teacher albeit an unappreciated one. Emotionally comfortable in hi-conflict situations wherein Chandra-6 may practice a religious tolerance even while animosity and toxic arguments take their toll.
Excellent for a guru of the philosophy of war
= Makara= Vimala Yoga, considered as a favorable dissolver of disagreements. Generally a good position for a male, somewhat more problematic for a female due to complications of parenting, but overall one does not sustain a conflict for long; it is as if one simply forgets and moves on to greater responsibilities. In Kumbha: lagnesha in 6 is never easy, but the lagnesha is a good planet wherever He goes. When He goes into Ari Bhava, there is a destiny for service in environments of high-intensity networking and systems work, ideally on behalf of those who are social marginalized or otherwise blocked from participative opportunity.

Strong emotional attachment to service, medicines, the underclass, and The mother's relatives (6).
In rashi of a strong Guru, may become a teacher of medicine. (Any variety of medicine, from bush doctor to homeopathic to allopathic to Ayurvedic and beyond.)
In a rashi of strong Mangala, may become a surgeon.
Mother involved with service to the ill, impoverished, or disadvantaged; or Mother is herself a servant.
|Inner emotional conflict may express as physical disagreement discomfort disease|| |
due to fundamentally adversarial expectations of human relationships and sensitivity to presence of dispute in the environment, which originates in childhood (Chandra).
The mother's relatives (6) are often promise-breakers, jealous and contentious.
Never a calm person due to internal accusations and blaming. Often the parents of this child did blame the child for the child's natural sicknesses (perhaps imputing a moral cause to illness) or the parents may have pressed the child into domestic servitude at a very early age, and indeed this habit of parents treating their children as household servants (and nothing more) is typically a generational pattern in the Chandra-6 nativity.
Chandra-6 may feel at war with oneself emotionally, in the great struggle to resolve all conflicts through absorption of the imbalances of others and responding to unfairness (6) with service and nurturing care.
Thus the potential for a Chandra-6 nativity to develop emotionally-based illness is generally well developed. Ailments typically focus on imbalance located in the paired organs or paired limbs or paired systems (such as the pair = sympathetic + parasympathetic nervous systems) which indicated by the rashi of Soma.
E.g., a basic and incomplete list:
Chandra in Bhava-6 grants strong emotional intuition in the professional fields of medicine, drugs legal-and-illegal, social work, mani-money-lending, conflict-management, criminal and civil litigation, pollution-toxicity, and military strategics.
Soma in Bhava-6 can make Chandra-6 native feel sick during Chandra's planetary periods, but Soma also can indicate an exceptionally gifted intuitive healer whose methods may contradict (6) the dominant medical paradigm.
There will be abundant social conflict in this native's life. Yet if Chandra is benevolent one will acquire extraordinary sensitivity to various states of imbalance and learn to avoid most trouble before it starts.
The mother of Chandra-6 may not provide reliable or consistent nurturing, due . to her own physical or emotional health imbalance. Typically the imbalance originates with the mother's mother, and earlier down the female line.
The mother passes along her unresolved grief to her child (usually unconsciously) in the form of fundamental emotional expectations of abandonment, conflict, and loss of agreement e.g. destruction of partnership and divorce.
4th-from-Chandra represents the mother's mother. If dharmesha-9 = a dushthamsha lord or dharmesha-9 = a natural challenger papagraha or dharmesha-9 occupies a dushthamsha, the emotional nurturing lineage has been disturbed at the maternal grandmother's generation. If Bhava-12 is also troubled, consider the embedded, subconscious emotional expectation of conflict and loss of agreement to extent to the mother's mother's mother (!)
Disagreement, disappointment, emotional servitude
When Chandra occupies Bhava-6, the most difficult house emotionally becomes 6th-from-6th = labha bhava.
Depending on conditions in Bhava-11, there may be affective difficulties due to disagreements with the elder brother (if any), one's network of friends in community, or the imbalance arises during the process of earning income.
Generally, Chandra-6 = chronically underpaid due to an inferior position in the marketplace of goods and ideas.
Chandra-6 can correct the imbalance in the female line through conscious forgiveness in emotionally peaceful times, and behavioral interventions in emotionally warlike times.
Intensive Seva = selfless service to those less fortunate, targeted toward those suffering from precisely the type of emotional conflict and relationship imbalance that Chandra-6 is experiencing in this life, will yield substantial remediation of the condition.
| Chandra-6 suggests loss-of-balance in contractual partnerships, whether professional or personal. |
Chandra-6 sustainsan emotional affinity for imbalanced environments, social conflict, warfare, pollution, and service toward those in trouble.
When cooperating closely with other graha, Chandra-6 may produce these outcomes:
A man experiences psycho-emotional animosity or exploitation in his childhood relationship to the mother, who is psychologically or physically ill. The child is often in service to the mother, likely caring for her in sickness or managing the mother's duties. The result is the mother-child relationship gets off-balance.
Child feels that mother is either too much or too little: she alternates between smothering and absence. There may be suppressed anger toward the mother, but also a strong bond with the mother's relatives, especially her siblings.
Moon in Bhava-6 suggests that at the level of subconscious memory, the man expects to be victimized by women, and develops many strategies to attract women yet prevent them from getting too close. If with Zukra, may self-medicates with toxins to reduce the emotional pressure.
Anxiety in expectation of loss of balance in relationships (12th from 7th). Tends to absorb the disagreements into ones interior victim narrative.
|Lineage of criticism (6) in the female family culture (Chandra).|| |
The Chandra-6 woman = similar experience to the Chandra-6 man. Budha rogesha-6 = gender-neutral.
Woman = adversarial relationship with her own mother, who pressed the young girl into caretaking service very early in life. Mother = critical and blaming of the daughter; maternal grandmother probably was critical of one's own mother.
Health concerns for women occur in the Moon's body areas: breasts, upper arms, lymph and endocrine systems, reproductive system.
Toxicity issues, emotional and physical, due entirely to suppressed anxiety and the habit of absorbing imbalance in relationships into oneself.
Compulsive regulation of the diet or the complete neglect of attention to food. Digestive sensitivity, allergies, food issues. Strong attachment to the mother's siblings, but not always a happy outcome.
Effects may be partially mitigated if Soma rules an auspicious Sthana.
The mother herself hails from a conflicted (6) early childhood home (Chandra). She adopts a lifestyle of service to others even while she herself is frequently ill due to her unresolved psycho-emotional conflicts.
In pursuit of some She may toil unceasingly for insufficient reward. She endures a chronic state of"work-life" imbalance which may eventually become self-medicated via alcohol, drugs, or other chemically toxic (6) substance in the attempt to re-balance the state of inner accusations and blaming.
The emotional motive behind her servitude is generally self-defensive (Chandra).
She is generally too busy serving others to be able to interact emotionally with her own family.
Self-defensive Motives toward service may be characterized by the rashi of Chandra:
Anxiety disorders, passive-aggression , specific characteristics according to the rashi/drishti, emotional imbalance.
The life overflows with many and various disagreements.
One may not win, but neither will one lose. Bhava-6 = an upachaya house. This native triumphs with age and tough experience, through developing neutral realism regarding the dark side of human nature, and becoming skillful in methods of self-protection. At the highest skill levels, a compassionate servant of humanity who reaches into the very heart of darkness: the fear of death.
Self-medication to numb interior conflict. If Chandra yuti Zukra = spoiled = self-medication may extend to self-indulgent drug or alcohol addiction.
Reflects the conflicted social management of potions, chemicals, and drugs . Excellent placement for pharmacist, herbalist, physician, and curadero.
Look to rogesha-6 to see whether this attraction makes a gifted medicinalist-clinician, or whether the prognosis is the less favorable, long term drug use pattern.
8th-related"secrecy" trouble from siblings, especially the immediately younger one
3rd-from-Chandra = Siblings = dushthamsha randhra-bhava-8
If no graha in 8,
If subha-graha in 8
If papa-graha in 8 (Shani, Rahu-Ketu, Mangala; lords of dusthamsha)
|Karmic debt and repayment|| |
When Chandra occupies the maha-dushtamsha, considerable karma repayment = on schedule in regard to sheltering and caretaking activities.
Although it is necessary to proceed through a series of parenting, school-teaching, protecting, caring, and property-owning environments in order to burn off the karmic ignorance and transform same into wisdom, it can be hard going in this life-sustaining business of caring for others.
|A broken yoke|| |
In matters of bhava-6, particularly when graha reside there, Chandra-6"in servitude" does most of the work in partnerships.
The Other has a karmic script to disregard the value of the contribution of the Chandra-6 partner, and the Chandra-6 partner indeed expects to be emotionally exploited.
The cycle of exploitation in relationships and the social invalidation caused by unappreciated contributions can be interrupted by consciousness; however the Chandra-6 native will not leave the habit (Chandra) of serving others. Rather, servitude (unconscious, victim) matures into service (seva, wisdom).
One-way street * dissolution of appreciation Energy goes out from the graha in 6. Yet due to the dissipation of trust and breaking of promises which occur in the 12th-from-7th, partner-confirmation and social-approval which would normally be expected as a grateful response to services rendered will rarely flow back in.
Lower expectations = better health
As a general rule, there is a repeating pattern of disappointed expectations (6), broken promises (6), and failed agreements (6) in matters of one's own parents * especially mother, any sort of property ownership whether land, sea, or vehicle; nurturing and nutrient; emotional security and establishment of roots. One's own parenting environment is also affected by the script of exploitation and imbalance caused by needy shelter-seekers, the poor, and the sick.
The key to mental-emotional (Budha-6-Chandra) health = to appreciate that one is highly unlikely to receive much recognition, reward, or repayment for emotional investment in the home or the homeland.
No matter how profoundly patriotic (Chandra) protective (Chandra) or deeply caring for the weak-and-needy one may be, the scheduled beneficiaries of one's parental outpouring of loving-care are not intended to acknowledge the gift.
The environment Bhava-6 = toxic, unfair, victim-minded, enslaved, addicted, criminalized -- and often warlike -- full of blaming, accusations, litigation, and endless interpersonal conflict.
It is unrealistic to expect validation (7) from the behaviors produced by karaka-graha in (6)
Naturally, when Chandra the center of one's emotional well-being is born into the Satkona, the very bhava of 'dissolution' 12 of fairness 7, there can be a great deal of frustration in regard to the mother, as well as a rather chronic rootlessness or difficulty in establishing a permanent home. It makes sense to live in a way that does not require complex property ownership, that does not build unsustainable expectations of caretakers and that self-honors one's extensive but unacknowledged behavior of caring for and sheltering miscellaneous extremely needy people.
it is the nature of the maha-dusthamsha that for Chandra-6 with nourishing Chandra in 6, the more one gives, the more 'needy others' will take. There is no opportunity for graha in 6 to maintain equitable, just, or mutually satisfactory emotional contracts. Legal contracts with very carefully stipulated material terms of agreement may have been success if the yuvatipathi-7 is strong. However the core, root, unconditional, folk-based, security-providing, sense-of-belongingness relationships are corrupted in this life. For a purpose!
Affinity with ill, conflicted, underclass, victims, disproportionate environments
Chandra-6 feels affinity with the working class, service class, and criminals; victims of pollution
victims of pollution and toxic medication
the financially, physically or socially crippled
the chronically impoverished and sick
Chandra in 6th-from-radix-lagna automatically places the lagna in 8th-from-Chandra.
This lifetime involves considerable animosity and disagreement (6) within a tantrik environment (sudden changes) which induce ongoing transformation of identity.
The physical appearance is somewhat benefitted through the change-agency of lagna in 8th-from-Soma, which urges the cells of the physical body toward destruction and regeneration. Chandra-6 retains a more youthful appearance, darker hair (Mangala influence of 8th-from) and faster recovery from life-threatening illness.
There are numerous threats to life during periods of the lord of 8th-from-Chandra These are mainly threats to the emotional identity but also can be physical downstream to the Chandra-ruled bodily systems such as body liquids needed for digestion, cyclic hormone production, liquid-transport, and drainage of lymph.
Tendency to misappropriate or steal items related to the home, foods and nurturing, caretaking and sheltering, parenting and supporting or protecting others. E.g., may misappropriate food or home supplies. May misrepresent one's behavior in the parenting role
Chandra-6 = karmicly predisposed to be exploited by caretakers, nurturing females or mother-types .
The mother or mother-type primary caretaker (and those who fraudulently pose as a mother) are themselves victimized, drained by their work, pressed into service (by survival needs or by their own desires).
Relationships with caretaker-figures throughout life are negatively impacted. The maternal figures in one's life are generally tired and overworked.
Mother-types tend to validate Chandra-6 only through Chandra-6 's service work, and a child with this placement may find that the mother mishandles or disregards the child's physical health.
Ironically, such a mother is often a worker in health services or public welfare support. This mother may offer top quality professional service to outsiders, yet her own children become those to whom she can attend only when she has completed all other duties. The mother is a worker in some outside workplace; the children are the children of a servant. Her service may be highly professionalized if rogesha -6 is benevolent. However, in the case of this mother,"the cobbler's children have no shoes ".
Emotional victimization of the type indicated by Soma's rashi, drishti, and position of the bhava pati.
Mother, sisters, aunts, grandmother, female supervisors and teachers, and wife in her role as caretaker, are all in general problematic due to their tendency to place work and service above all else. Fraudulent mother-substitutes, if the lord of Chandra = 6th-from. Jealousy and servitude; resentment toward women and their emotional demands.
Should the lord of Chandra be ill-disposed by rashi or occupy the shad-ashtaka 6-8 from Chandra, the mother may be chronically ill.
Inner emotional argumentation in the mother's character, most notably a maternal tendency toward self-criticism. Phlegm build-up in the physical body, gives a tendency toward sticky hold-on to old emotions.
Instinct to buffer emotional conflict via drug and food intoxication, or by dieting toward starvation. Ancient past-life memories [Chandra] of exhaustion through slavery, overwork, starvation, vicious disease can interrupt the happiness of the current lifetime.
Repeating patterns of occasional severe illness, from which Chandra-6 recovers (perhaps with some lingering, underlying weakness). Irritable temperament due to emotional drain. Overworked.
Weakness when manageable presents opportunities for growth.
Depending on Chandra's lordship, may bring benefits to work in service ministry. Particularly good for careers in health care, child care, restaurant, social work, science, compassionate service toward those less fortunate. A caring person who is nevertheless exploited. Deep sympathy toward servants and animals. Can become a great liberator through parental, nurturing care of others.
More difficult for a man, who finds that the women in his life turn into enemies. Fundamental (although perhaps unacknowledged) animosity toward the mother. Deep resentment of women overall.
May be slightly easier for the female, who accepts a service role more comfortably within most cultures and who will often be sick but may also heal others in their need.
Diseases of lymph, watery systems of the body, of breasts, chest, digestive system, blockage in fluid body systems such as 'stroke' -- all due to emotional resentment maintained via the ongoing inner argument. Release the argument and the disease will resolve.
One may feel victimized or wronged by the mother, through the female lineage in one's family, by female servants, nurses, caretakers, babysitters, social workers, cooks, and service workers in a motherly role. Illness and accident or health troubles of the left eye, or of the breasts and stomach.
The mother's relatives suffer emotional imbalance, due to troubles with their own mother, which makes them argumentative, self-defensive, adversarial, belittling, and critical in their nurturing attempts. One is emotionally attached to the mother and her siblings, but the effect of the maternal relationships is harmful overall.
Some tendency toward petty thievery due to bhava-6 = loss of social agreement. Chandra may steal (often inadvertently or unintentionally) items for the home, for nurturing the weak, for creating shelter and feathering the next.
Habitual psycho-emotional pain * for what purpose?
One born with radical Chandra-6 has scheduled precisely these experiences. One then develops a higher consciousness via these experiences. Indeed due to the failure of the expected caretakers in their customary roles, emotional distress is so much heightened that a normal human cannot ignore or choose not to respond to the stress. (An exception might be Ketu-yuti-Chandra-6 that could have a high enough dose of Ketu-detachment to succeed in ignoring the accusations and pain.)
It may seem masochistic from a mundane viewpoint, but this mechanism tends to push one into a ministry of service under the rationalization (6) that if one cannot expect happiness in one's own life, then at least one can bring some benefit to the lives of others. Ironically, serving others with similar or worse problems indeed brings one into clarity about the part of the game which involves deception, betrayal, illness and injury, lying and perjury, argument and accusation, criticism and analysis with the specific Chandra-identified qualities of emotional pain and feelings of sorrow.

"... dogged with persistent difficulties.
Often you are endangered
you suffer great financial difficulties
Your physical health may not be strong,
Even during periods of acute physical and financial difficulty
You will contribute to social progress and command great respectability,
You are intelligent
and have an overwhelming influence against the most powerful enemies.
Enemy sign causes more enemies;
Moon in depression sign causes cheerlessness,
Whatever be the valor of enemies,
