Surya in swabhava of enemy Zukra radiates sensual, acquisitive (Zukra) personal charisma (Surya) engaged with: *
creative, center-stage roles as
drishti from Surya-7 upon radical lagna brightens the personality and creates higher social visibility
The universe seems to revolve around the male partner who occupies the dramatic center of :
alliances, partnerships, contracts, agreements, negotiations, balance,
marriage, mating, pairing, sexual relationships
diplomacy, terms of mutual benefit, consulting, advising,
peer relationships, match-making, deals, bargains,
resolution in the law courts, settlements,
betrothal, troth, trusts
Males have primary relationship with other males such as business partner, boss, senior officer.
If there is a female marital partner, she has radiant creative confidence and an intelligent, dominating personality. However Surya must be strong by rashi to produce truly effective, non-compromised, non-manipulative, directly ego-recognizing social roles for her. When Ravi is well placed, she can be a successful dramatist, negotiator or attorney.
Surya-7 indicates a creative but self-centered first spouse; often the partner operates in Surya-oriented fields like entertainment, creative arts, royal ceremony, speculative finance, gambling, and politics.
Typically the native with Surya-7 obtains an attention-seeking spouse.
Whether more specialized toward alliances-making, negotiations, or deals depends upon rashi, drishti, and co-tenants of classroom-7.
Unless mitigated by other more soothing graha, blazing hot attention-seeking Surya has a tendency to burn up the balanced arrangements of marriage. One-center-point Surya is a fierce enemy of Zukra the marriage-karaka and swapathi of yuvati bhava . Therefore Surya-7 (anti-Zukra in 7) may indicate a dissatisfaction with the constant equalizing adjustments and accommodations of partnership.
Rather, Surya continuously pursues the center-role in the partnership, and if admiration and central-visibility attention is not forthcoming from the spouse (who typically has their own need for creative centrality) then a remarriage is indicated.
Remarriage is possible if the cultural position of the native permits it and the arrangement of the graha requires is; otherwise driven to "relief" dalliances.
Often the graha do not require remarriage but rather create complexities in the agency of advocacy, counsel and advising.
Successful placement for negotiators making political alliances and contracts
first spouse has a radiant and central, attention-getting ego-personality
Independent-minded and somewhat ego-driven spouse who is an asset in public life, but not so easy in private life. Enhances negotiation skills in marriage, but not empathy. Not auspicious, generally, for partnerships. Limited ability to compromise.
Better results if Surya is strong by rashi. Nichha graha in bhava-7 attracts a weak spouse and indecisive business partners, leading to repeat marriages and much frustration.
Karmasthana being 10th-from-10th is also a career indicator. A strong Ravi in yuvati bhava can make a decisive, rational business person who can accept a large measure of personal responsibility.
However Surya-7 should not take on partners. Sole proprietorship is best. If working in a bigger organization, some power to make independent decisions such as in management roles, is essential.
Strong Surya in yuvati bhava may indicate one who is a magnificent deal-maker, product designer, or social architect.
|Father|| USA Civil Rights 1929-1968 Rev. Martin Luther King * Surya-yuti-Budha-Makara -7. Rev. King's father was himself a distinguished educator and noted church preacher. The father's primary social role as public speaker is shown by L-2 (speech) Surya-yuti-Budha the karaka for speech, story-telling, and song. |
With Surya in kendra, the social prominence of both father and son is evident; yet the capacity for material achievement is limited by the rashi and the angle. Both figures were instrumental and inspirational in the quest to achieve full civil respect for African-Americans, but their nativities show that visibility is shaped by membership in a religious community and privilege to hold government office is weakened by the need to craft unequl partnerships.
Surya-Meena : ruler-of-12 in 7 = Surya occupies a hospitable rashi of His good friend Guru the Priest, but Suraja is also dissipating and dreamlike ruler-of-12 . Furthermore both Guru and Suraja dislike Zukra. The spouse may hail from the priestly or wisdom-teaching lineage of a distant land or be associated with fantasies, enclosures, sanctuaries. The spouse is very confident due to a childlike trust in the faith of others (usually, adoring parents, grandparents, and teachers). Spouse sees no need to compromise self-interest in order to incorporate the goals or wishes of Surya-7; . Public presentation of the marriage = optimistic, humanistic, travel-oriented (ruler-of-12 ) and apparently enlightened. However the spouse would have to be an utterly fascinating person to keep Surya-7 's unswerving attention for a prolonged time. bhava-12 and Meena indicate 'enemies of the marriage' = 6th-from-7th. The main enemies of the marriage are those who see Surya-7 as a redeemer, a savior, the great hope of the ancestors. Good for priestly religion but not good for marriage.
Surya-7 is attracted to partners who have a confident, self-centric, bright personality.
The preferred partners express unique intelligence that is diplomatic, harmonious, balancing, charming, relational, attentive, and sweet.
The mate is remarkably certain. To the native with Surya-7, the partner's trait of smiling confidence is compellingly attractive. The mate proposes an alliance quickly and confidently. In the case of a female mate, her father may orchestrate the alliance and deliver the proposal. In the case of a male mate, he may assertively and smilingly deliver the proposal. For either gender, the partner has definite fatherly qualities.
Generally the mate is distinctively intelligent with political capabilities. Yet the native may be surprised by a gracious and beckoning public persona which masks a narcissistic private reality. Within the marriage, neither Surya-7 nor the spouse can easily accommodate the other's solipsism.
Challenging placement for marriage. Spouse is self-concerned and often lacks empathy. Mate is often highly concerned with personal appearance, prestige dress, and status accouterment. The mate of Surya-7 often seeks royal privilege for the self via fame, power, or dramatic wealth. The native's well-being in secondary at best and often ignored entirely. However, additional graha in classroom-7 can soften the self-centeredness or at least diversify its expression.
Surya-7 native as well as the life-partner can be very gifted in arts and is often skilled in architecture, design, diplomacy, hatha yoga, acrobatics, flower arrangement, mediation, and comparable balancing professions. Surya-7 grants charisma in public acts of harmony and balance.
Yet in private emotional interaction, the partner may suffer a significant inability to manage power-sharing. Surya must be in the center. Equal to equal relationships do not suit the King.
Surya-7 may be feared, admired and respected but not appreciated for their gracious accommodation in relationships.
Personally and professionally, it is "my way or the highway". Career and home life suffer from solipsism and self-referential behavior in partnership.
For best results with this dicey position, Surya-7 should be surrounded with apprentices, admirers, and dependents -- but not equals. It is however beneficial for public career to have the radiantly creative super-star Ravi in yuvati 10th-from-10th. Surya flourishes professionally in both bhava-10 and bhava-7 so long as Surya-7 can have things one's own way.
Poses a challenge to the expectation of a cooperative alliance.
May be negotiable for two equally strong-willed professional bargainers.
The life-mate needs to be in the spotlight, getting attention consistently.
Center-stage solo-performer Surya feels a bit over-sated and distracted in the swabhava of Professor Surya's enemy the harmony-seeking, ever-adjusting Zukra.
One's ego-membrane validation = over-extended, as one's self-concept becomes yoked to outer mirrors of various partnerships, * particularly in the image reflected by the spouse. One expects the partner to reflect ideals of Divine Perfection. Simha and Mesha in particular forecast exceptionally idealistic projection upon the spouse, who may need to be physically ideal as well as socially rather regal in character. (Confirm via 7th navamsha.)
There is much sensual pleasure embedded in the 7th sthana, and the materialism of Zukra's sense pleasures which makes it hard for the brilliant anti-material divine light of Ravi to shine with full glory.
classroom-7 is a travel bhava (along with houses 3 and 12) so this native is ego-identified with travel for the purpose of advising, consulting, deal-making, and building alliances.
Not generally a good position for marriage.
Solo-performer Surya and partner-seeking Zukra are bitter enemies.
Surya-7 in any rashi = a self-focused life-mate.
Yuvati bhava is an uncomfortable location for Professor Surya because it brings Ravi's hot, self-centered energy into Zukra's cool, mutual-exchange house.
|Spousal ego-membrane and burning idealism|| |
In yuvati bhava, a swabhava of Zukra, Surya can provide a self-righteous,self-identified spouse.
The partner may be compelled to dramatize his or her individual uniqueness upon the theatrical stage of the marriage.
During courtship, such a spouse is very charming, fashionable, and engaged with the suitor as a preferred audience.
However, it is likely that as marriage proceeds, and the business of shared labor, shared goals, and shared wealth becomes a day-to-day reality, such a spouse may resent the reduction of incoming attention and applause.
Naturally an exaggerated level of self-focus harms cooperation in a partnership. Zukra's agenda of balancing and accommodating give-and-take in marriage may be entirely"burned up" by the centrist, attention-getting behaviors of Suraja the King .
However it should be understood that the spouse is simply articulating and dramatizing one's own inner self-critical perfectionism and constant internal narrative of idealistic perfection that disturbs one's own inner balance.
d ebilitated Suraja in 7 may indicate a passive-aggressive spouse who manipulates the partner in order to gain a central position in the union. Unfortunately, represented by the willpower-challenged nichha-Surya, is not capable of maintaining the central position by honest means. The marriage founders.
Dignified Ravi = The spouse needs to be Right. If Surya-7 is of an accommodating nature, and the spouse is a productive earner in dramatic professions within politics and theatre, perhaps such a union is possible to sustain.
| Surya = "Looking Good" |
commentary upon Surya-7: "The urge to overcome an enemy, begin a new way of life , and start a fresh course of action will motivate you. Marriage or sexual partnership centers less on the sharing of emotions and intellectual aspirations than on the release of physical tension."
"The urge to overcome an enemy, begin a new way of life , and start a fresh course of action will motivate you.
Marriage or sexual partnership centers less on the sharing of emotions and intellectual aspirations than on the release of physical tension."
Surya-7 in any rashi = inharmonious for marriage.
Nevertheless, a dignified Surya honors the public 'face' of the marriage by allowing the spouse to perform with intelligence in public roles.
It is somewhat easier, in a traditional marriage, for the woman to have Surya in bhava-07 . Should Surya have strength, the husband will be self-important, independent and wandering. However since the male is socially expected to run higher levels of solar energy, the natural balance and social acceptability of such a marriage may be only slightly frustrating for a traditional female.
For a man to have empowered Ravi in bhava-7, may be a quite difficult experience. The self-righteousness of the wife may be extreme. She is independent-minded to a fault, often having been raised to believe that one's own ideals are superior t o others and that one's own experience is more authentic than others.

Examples of Weak placement for Surya-7:
|Surya in Bhava 7|| |
In the bhava of partnership, a swabhava of harmony-seeking Zukra, Ravi's self-focus is an obstacle to making agreements.
However the pride-and-glory problem is usually not Surya-7. The problem is typically embedded in a narcissistic or overly self-concerned albeit intelligent spouse.
Despite Surya-7 having positive intentions and wanting only the best ideal happiness, for the partnership, Surya's pride and solipsism can be difficult for marriage which requires tolerance of imperfection and mutuality of interests.
It is beneficial for Surya to have lower power if He is here in bhava-7. Surya's proud brilliance is reduced in rashi of Shani and rashi of Zukra.
If Surya is strong one may find an executive career in creative expressions of negotiation, bargaining, mediation, or deal-making, either in commercial business or the professional expressions of Law. The father (Ravi) is often an attorney or professional negotiator.
~~ Bhrigu Sutram
Ch. 44 Shloka 8
"The woman's husband will reject her, if the 7th house from the Ascendant or from the Moon-occupied sign be occupied by the Sun."
~~ BPHS Ch. 80, shloka 17-21
"If the Sun occupies the 7th bhava, the woman concerned is abandoned by her husband.
|~~ Hora Sara , Ch. 25, Shloka 28-29||Should the Sun be in the 7th house, she will be given up by her husband.|
|~~ Hora Sara , Ch. 25, Shloka 31-32||Should the Sun yuti Rahu be in the 7th house, the lady will have many husbands.|
|~~ Hora Sara , Ch. 25, Shloka 37|| |
"If the Sun is in its own house in the 7th house or in the 7th amsha, the husband of such a lady will be sensually disposed and soft in speech."
|Das / Behari commentary re: Surya-7"|| |
"Generally speaking, the Sun in the 7th house shapes your attraction to the opposite sex, but causes suffering thereby.
You experience difficulties in establishing a harmonious married life, and often marries more than once.
Your spouse is not devoted to you, fickle minded, and fidelity is doubtful.
The Sun in the 7th house delays marriage;
The afflicted Sun will bring trouble through pride, subject to the nature of the aspect.
Note: Almost every authority declares that the Sun in the 7th is not congenial for a smooth married life.
One will incur grief on account of spouse, will incur physical distress and mental worries.
You will have limited progenic happiness, indulge in sinful acts, be sick, will have a damaged body due to excessive sexual enjoyment and will eat anything available.
You will not derive much physical pleasures from your spouse and will enter into quarrels within a single moment without cause."
Behari commentary re: Gochara Suryatransits classroom-7:
"This house is associated with partnership such as marriage, legal or otherwise, business, existing relationships, law suits in partnership.
Examine your relationship with your spouse for better cooperation.
Do not take action alone; work with a partner or consult with an expert in that specific field. Do not enter into direct conflict during this month.
You may suffer humiliation, loss of money, quarrels with wife, anxiety and depression of mind.
