"A benefic in Lagna will give a pleasing appearance, while a malefic will make one bereft of good appearance.

Felicity of the body will be enjoyed, if Lagna is drishtied by, or yuti with a benefic."

Enjoys movement, sport, military advance, competitive relationships

  • Luxurious pleasures via physical appearance, cult of personality

  • appreciates the value of muscular balance and harmonious genetics

Attractive physique, athletic and individualized relationships

  • POTUS-17 Reconstruction 1808-1875 Andrew Johnson rose from abject poverty as the child of a widowed washwoman, to governor of Tennessee and President of USA. Johnson was handsome in a chiseled style reflecting Shani drishti upon Zukra-1. Via the fame-producing uttama-Chandra-5 ruled by Zukra-1, his broad face was printed upon political campaign posters in many elections. His charisma drew from his rough-hewn beginnings and the campaign images capitalized on his "log cabin" origins as an aesthetic element.

Luxurious pleasures via Physical Movement + Fleshly Vitality

usually, financial well-being attends this attractive personality

A benefic is lagna always helps the social identity. the native = physically attractive having well-balanced features.

  • Sensual, artistic nature.

  • gifted in finance, beauty, ornamentation, music, and pleasure

  • attracts attention very easily

Often a dancer, actor, balladeer, fashion model, musician, athlete, politician, or otherwise successful in public life via the sweetly handsome bodily appearance.

One relishes the sensual delights of art, music, fine foods and scents. Access to the treasuries of valuable goods and conserved knowledge.

Zukra in lagna provides pleasure in one's own body, self-delighted by one's own social personality identity.

Enjoys the sweetness of easy win in competitions and fights.

Appreciates the occasion of birth.

Spends money (Zukra) on

  • self, fleshly appearance, personal style

  • Actions and relationships which promote the bodily attractiveness + vitality

  • services of those who invigorate the body such as massage therapists and athletic trainers (particularly but not exclusively women)

  • services of those who beautify the individual's public aura such as personal stylists

Wealth from: music, beauty, fine arts,

Wealth from: charming personality and pleasing shell-appearance

Wealth from: gracious entertaining, personal warmth, vitality, and pleasant style

Zukra-1 is an inveterate deal-maker who naturally seeks mutual interest agreements with all partners.

Relationships are self-defining-ly important to Zukra-1, and their social behavior is often distinguished by an ability to maintain pleasant relationships via re-bargaining the terms of agreement.

  • Despite their widely publicized divorce after his admitted infidelity, POTUS-45 Play to Win 1946- Donald Trump successfully maintained an amicable personal and commercial bond with his ex-wife Best Is Yet to Come 1949- designer Ivana Zelnickova Trump. Even decades after their divorce, the ex-couple can be seen in pleasant conversation at public gatherings, have raised their mutual children jointly, and neither of their reputations was harmed by the stigma of divorce.

Zukra-1 whether male or female = especially attractive to women, who enjoy providing one with sensual experiences including valuable gifts

  • beauty, grace, arts of the mouth = song, history, languages due to Zukra natural lord of bhava-2

Luxurious assets resulting from the physical body's balanced musculature. Zukra-1 typically enjoys an attractive appearance.

  • Among his other fine qualities, POTUS-01 American Revolution 1732-1799 George Washington was said to have been strikingly handsome; a lover of fine wines and dance parties; and one of the wealthiest men of his generation.

  • POTUS-19 Railroad Strike 1822-1893 Rutherford B. Hayes enjoyed a handsome, muscular appearance due to Zukra in lagna of D-1, D-9 , D-10. A civilized fellow overall, he was a strong supporter of humanistic education due to Dhanushya D-9 lagna. It was Rahu-6 and Mangala-4 (aggressive defense of settlement) that brought him into numerous battles, but fighting never caused a disfiguring injury.

Naturally, these traits are modified when additional graha occupy the lagna.

Attracted to one's own beauty. Can be a bit narcissistic, but in a sweet (Zukra) way.

  • A portion of one's money wealth is magnetically attracted into the life via wearing and producing aesthetically-designed costumes, styling and modeling a lovely body, and looking handsome in the flesh.

Likes to be the center of attention, likes to be watched, photographed, admired, and talked about. Natural talent for balancing and re-balancing relationships and for creating an aesthetic environment around one's own person.

Other graha in bhava-1 will adjust Zukra's effects.

  • POTUS-43 Decision Points 1946- George W. Bush = Zukra + Shani-yuti-Budha = appearance = a plain (Shani) but pleasant (Zukra) and talkative (Budha) fellow

  • TM" 1917-2008 Maharishi" Mahesh Yogi + Surya-yuti-Rahu = charismatic (Surya) and highly ambitious (Rahu) with a bright, attractive personality

Characteristics of the Environment where one may meets the life-partner(s):

  • athletic events, muscularity

  • competition, racing

  • movement

  • body-centered activity, fashion modeling, dance

  • birth, innovation, primacy

  • cult of personality

  • warriorship, hunting

  • blood, flesh

  • pursuit, conquest, domination

Often, a husband meets the life-partner (Zukra) in a setting characterized as on his own initiative, via being attracted to her fleshly appearance. There may be no context of introduction by a third party.

  • Genesis 1951- musician Phil Collins met his first three wives in context of his center-stage musical performances, including wife #3 who was a language translator on one of his world concert tours. Mr. Collins has Zukra + Kuja-yuti-Rahu + Guru in bhava-1 . In addition, his Chandra occupies a rashi of Zukra (Thula, Swati). At least one of his wives must be exotic to his birth culture due to Rahu. He may produce as many as four marriages.

For radical Makara lagna, Makara-Chandra-lagna, radical Kumbha lagna, and Kumbha-Chandra-lagna, Zukra is a Yogakaraka. Husband nativities with these prominent lagna may be blessed with a remarkably beneficial wife-figure.

  • POTUS-17 Reconstruction 1808-1875 Andrew Johnson * Zukra-Makara-1. Johnson was raised in poverty and received no formal education. However after his marriage at age 18 to Eliza McCardle age 16, his more educated wife tutored him in accurate reading, writing, and ciphering. He soon entered the world of politics, climbing from local official to POTUS-17. Although he suffered from the spotty understanding typical of the self-educated, Johnson nonetheless read some of the classics. He became a well known and financially privileged figure. Although she was not a flashy personality (Shani in 7th-from-Chandra for Johnson) Eliza's solid, sober, and sometimes-stern sensibilities supported him politically and socially.

In both male and female nativities, if one lacks conscious awareness of one's spiritual true self, Zukra-1 can indicate narcissistic utility of flattery via the life-partners. In this unfortunate case, one's definition of self is strictly social-material, and Zukra-1 * especially males * may select a spouse who provides an attractive and flattering mirror for the Self, rather than an equal participating partner.

  • POTUS-43 Decision Points 1946- George W. Bush 's first wife Laura Bush was not an athlete, warrior, or model - in fact, she was a school librarian. Mr. Bush's Zukra-1 = dominated by Shani-yuti-Budha, while his Budha enjoys parivartamsha with lagnesha Chandra. The Chandra-Budha exchange helps to define the role of Mrs. Laura Bush. Mr. Bush's Zukra-1 endures a highly complex situation; much is demanded of this spouse. Zukra is however GW's bandesha-4 = schoolteachers. The couple is said to have met at a backyard (4) outdoor party at the home (Chandra) of friends (Zukra vriddhipati-11 ). Mrs. Laura Bush has mentioned, regarding their first meeting and quick marriage, that it was remarkable how many elements of their lives fit together. Presumably something in her style of movement (Zukra-1) triggered GW's recognition that this person was his wife-for-life.

  • USA-Sen-Mass 1932-2009 Teddy Kennedy met his first wife Joan Bennet at an honoring event at Manhattanville College, when Ted's family was being celebrated for their financial (Zukra) contributions to help build the college women's (Zukra) sports (1) center. With Zukra-yuti-Rahu in his Meena radical lagna, Mr. Kennedy was powerfully identified with the distinctive appearance (1) and over-reaching empowerment (Rahu) of his clan. Zukra is uncomfortable in Meena due to ruling 3-8 from Meena lagna and Zukra amplified by Rahu, suggesting that the wife although a beautiful fashion model (uttama-Zukra) would also suffer from mental churning (3) and self-destructive (8) behaviors.
