Surya-Meena * bright center of sanctuary and dreams

"I am" self-centric identity formed by thought-streams emitting from The Series of Suns

"I am" a Guide across the Bridge, a dreamer, an imaginer

One's natural genius (Surya) seeks to be in the center of dreamlike, clairsentient, divinatory, meditative and reflective environments.

Surya's ego-membrane expression depends on character of expansive, permissive, wise Brihaspati.

One wishes to represent, as an icon or an emissary, the subconscious, the dream-world, and the world beyond . Surya-Meena seeks a central role in the monastery, the dormitory, the hospital, the foreign travel office, and environments of imagination and fantasy such as films and virtual reality.

When uncomfortably placed, Surya-Meena may signal a certain amount of intuitive conceit. One may radiate the "right imagery".

Unconcerned with time management, and as a result less effective.

Meena occupies shad-ashtaka 6-8 from Simha and 2/12 from Mesha. Thus Meena-Surya is alienated from the two rashi which best support Surya. Therefore despite the fact that Meena is a friendly rashi, Surya 's results in Meena can be surprisingly difficult due to over-expansion of center-stage roles. The native needs more quiet time (Meena) than Surya's highly visible roles will permit.

Perhaps the most difficult combination for Surya-Meena = Surya + uttama Zukra which produces a conflict between Surya's interest in self-radiant politics versus Zukra's uttama-empowered taste for wine, women, and song. In the nativity of a husband, Zukra is the kalatra-karaka and with Zukra-yuti-Surya the wife is both essential to one's theatrical-political life and a complexity upon it.

  • POTUS-07 Indian Removal 1767-1845 Andrew Jackson + nichha-Budha-yuti-Zukra * Surya-5 parivartamsha Guru-10 had Surya-Zukra-Budha in Meena = the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra -Simha. Jackson was both famed and despised for his romantic (Surya-5) but scandalous (nichha-Budha gossip) marriage to the bi-gamous Rachel Donelson Jackson. Mr. Jackson hailed from a North Carolina farming family of crude manners and modest means. Rachel enjoyed great beauty in her youth and she hailed from a financially privileged slave-owning frontier family. Although legally married to another husband (yet told by her family that she had been divorced in absentia) she eloped with the charming and ambitious Andrew Jackson. Taunts of "harlotry" were thrown at Rachel by Jackson's political enemies, causing vicious gossip and lawsuits. Jackson murdered a man in defense of his wife's honor, for which he was bitterly criticized yet never jailed since 'honor killing' was morally acceptable on the frontier. Rachel's wealth helped Jackson to build a high-acreage plantation worked by hundreds of slaves. The couple remained married until her death. He traveled for war and political campaigns, but she rarely left their home during the final decades of her life due largely to heart problems Simha 6th-from-Meena.

  • POTUS-10 Annex Texas 1790-1862 John Tyler = "triple withdrawal" factor due to rogesha-6 Surya-Meena yuti ruler-of-12 Shani yuti L-3-8 uttama Zukra in the lagna - Surya dominates this planetary triumvirate with the highest degree of Meena. Hailing from a political family, Tyler spent a lifetime in numerous high-profile political roles (Surya). Yet he often abandoned his posts, taking retreat from political animosity. Tyler's presidency started unexpectedly during bhukti of his governing karmesha-10 uttama-Zukra when William Henry Harrison died. Tyler was suddenly bombarded with social entertainment obligations (Surya), his wife died and he quickly remarried (Zukra). He spent most of his presidency hosting nice parties in the White House (Surya-yuti-Zukra) and accomplished almost nothing during four years in office.

Seeks to enact universal ethical principles. Desires return to an imaginative, visualizing, childlike state of being.

Leadership abilities compromised by sudden changes of vision, and disregard for long-term mutual responsibilities.

Center-stage roles

  • = imaginative, visionary, psychically sensitive, broad-minded, inclusive.

One radiates confidence in matters of prayer and the imagination.

One may attempt a cloistered religious vocation, but may be found too bright-ego for the privatized practice.

Visible public behavior = psychologically driven by childhood memories of vivid imaginary life and being praised for creativity in fantasy and prayer.

Good at seeing things from a dreamlike perspective.

Musical artists, travel or meditation guides (esp. in Revatika ) likes to work in charitable organizations or safe spaces such as children's summer camps, ashram or dormitory, spiritually oriented hospitals or healing centers.

High capacity for psychic intuition, religious visions, and awareness of the presence of spirits in daily life.

Caring and concerned for the welfare of those who temporarily or permanently stay in an incompletely materialized (more astral) state of being.

  • POTUS-pair-37 Watergate 1912-1993 Pat Thelma Nixon had a special mission to call attention (Surya) to the plight of the mentally and handicapped in 1970's USA

Often passionate environmentalists in the modern era; Mother Earth being conceived as a vulnerable child.

Social personality is kindly, generous, and inclusive . Access to divine inspiration from the ancestors and spirit guides = core of personal faith.

May be somewhat overbearing in personal relationships, due to self-righteous personalization of principles of universal truth. Free of malice however, and may willingly extend one's help to many in this life. A mark of compassionate leadership.

If a physician or other bodily healer, special genius for work with the feet.

Father or father-figure, who may be the grandfather or other dominant male, is concerned with reflective and contemplative vision and finding the paths to astral knowledge.

  • The father = imaginative and engaged in the business of private spiritual guidance, with an optimistic, expansive, wisdom orientation .

  • Alternatively, the father may simply demand a great deal of privacy, and the native may have no idea what the father is doing behind closed doors.

  • The father may be readily able to accept spiritual guidance, although he might not declare it per se to the materialistic world.

  • The father may also be overly reflective or imaginative"head in the clouds ", or unable to manage his time .

  • Final results depend on disposition of Brihaspati..

Multiple marriages are the norm, due to Surya 's adult (Surya)desire to return to the childlike (Meena)state of complete enclosure.

As always, if Shani is dignified, the negative implications are reversed, and the father may -- with time and maturity -- display superior moral character.

[Full profile of father = Surya-yuti-Guru + dharma bhava + dharmesha-9 + 9th-from-Chandra + pitri-karaka + D-12]

Das commentary re: Surya-Meena

"...there is constant tension in your mind .

All human partnerships are greatly colored by your marriage ,

  • which often stunts the growth of your personality .

Your first marriage partner may die or there will be early separation

  • and you may marry several times."
