Nearly any combination of commercial Budha + luxurious, partnering Zukra can result in financial-wealth development via business enterprise.

Commercial and messaging activities of Budha are enhanced by gracious, diplomatic, arranging Zukra. Flow of communications in key partnerships benefits the career.

reports, announcements, particularly on topic of contract, agreement, deal, arrangement, partnership, equity

media communications

business administration, conferences and seminars, often invited by colleagues

  • Das Kapital 1818-1883 economics Karl Marx built his career by speaking at conferences and gatherings of social-economic activists. He was a popular speaker with many associates.

  • POTUS-39 Talking Peace 1924- Jimmy Carter was POTUS only for four years, and his administration was not much praised. However he built a post-presidential career in public speaking at social-activist gatherings, and he typically stayed to participate in the conferences building many relationships

In the nativity of one in the husband role, Budha-yuti-Zukra is a karaka for marrying the same wife twice. Zukra represents wife, and Budha is a doubler.

(In the nativity of one in the wife role, Budha-yuti-Guru is a karaka for marrying the same husband twice. Guru represents husband, and Budha is a doubler.)

Typically a couple who marries, divorces, and remarries each other has the husband-doubler and the wife-doubler in their nativities. Often there is a significant drishti from Shani into the doubler-yoga also.

Generally Shurka-yuti-Budha is a peace-maker combination that mixes Zukra's diplomatic skill with Budha's capacity for interpretation.

  • POTUS-pair-42 + USA Secy State 1947- Hillary Clinton * master of the spin. She has served as a highly respected negotiator. Some of Mrs. Clinton's peacemaking skills have been exposed during her husband's 'sexual pursuits' crises (there were several). She diplomatically chose to not divorce but rather to re-craft their marital agreement. Zukra + Budha-yuti-Surya-Vanika = bhava-1 personality. Interpretive and descriptive skills (Budha) are an important factor in the continuity of the marriage contract (Thula) and indeed a facilitating skill in the countless trusts and agreements that she has negotiated since graduating from Yale Law School in 1973.

  • Nichha Budha yuti uttama-Zukra

    POTUS-07 Indian Removal 1767-1845 Andrew Jackson = uttama-Zukra-5 ruler of 12, yuti nichha-Budha-yuti-Surya Also, Surya-5 parivartamsha Guru-10 supporting his political career (5, 10). Jackson had only one formal wife, and she was a bundle of contradictions. His wife Rachael was a great beauty in her day = uttama-Zukra. Their marriage was scandalous because she was not clearly divorced from a previous husband (Zukra-Surya-nichha Budha = nichha-Budha = unclear information). Early in their married lives, she took refuge on their slave plantation "The Hermitage" Zukra rules 7 contractual obligations, legal deeds and titles, Zukra-uttama rules Shani-7 digbala refuses to move. She developed protective obesity aided by the imbalance of Zukra-yuti-Surya where Surya rules 6th-from Meena-Zukra. However from within their farm, she managed the finances and Jackson became wealthy uttama-Zukra. He was widowed during Shani-Ketu period, immediately after winning the election of 1828, started his term of office in a state of heavy grieving. He did not formally remarry, remaining a widow for 18 years. He served eight years as POTUS-07 (1829-1837, age 62-70) during Shani mahadasha, absent the aid of a wifely confidante and emotional supporter (Ketu dissolution yuti Zukra in 10th navamsha). Jackson was known for his fixation on The Petticoat Affair involving the wife of a fellow politician, and his constant reshuffling of his advisors (Zukra handicapped by nichha-Budha). Jackson died a wealthy man due to uttama-Zukra and other dhanayoga such as ruler of 2-5 yuti Chandra dharmesha. However due to Zukra's complexities, matters of marriage and advising were fraught with imbalance.


Das * Behari commentary Budha-yuti-Zukra

"Enlightened, cheerful and artistic.

  • Wealth,

  • interest in politics,

  • skill with crafts ,

  • interest in philosophical literature,

  • good speaking ability, singing ability

  • and other good qualities in general."


Shani and Zukra are good friends and Budha gets along with them as a neutral.

Speech style = simple, and proletarian, but also smooth and generally pleasing. Sound patterns may be regionalized or"folksy", but the implication of harshness or vulgarity that would result from Budha-yuti-Shani alone, is much smoothed and more attractive due to Zukra.

Total effect of the speech delivery and mentality is friendly, a bit intellectually restrained or mentally simplified, but pleasant.

  • POTUS-43 Decision Points 1946- George W. Bush was criticized for sounding like a "simpleton" to those with high intellectual standards. However his speech was generally well-liked by the common people, who found his style attractive due to being unpretentiously simple.

Depending on the bhava ruled by Shani and Zukra, education can improve the written and spoken expression dramatically. the native may be cautious of verbal expression and occasionally sounds a bit too populist for the educated ear. Yet the audience is usually forgiving and the trustworthiness of a common style of speech is a valuable asset.

Budha-Meena * nichha yuti Zukra-Meena * uttama yuti Surya

POTUS-07 Indian Removal 1767-1845 Andrew Jackson uttama-Zukra + nichha-Budha-yuti-Surya (12) and Surya-parivartamsha-Guru

"Pleasure to Communicate, Organize and Plan"

The male is attracted to women of talkative and literary nature. She is articulate and has many female friends.

"Twinning" behavior in marriage. The male may feel most comfortable with his beloved when in a sibling-type relationship, when planning or studying together, or in shared-narrative conversation.

Sharing thoughts and shared writing process are highly valued qualities of the partnership. This tends to be an actively sexual marriage with the"sexual conversation" being woven into the whole flow of the interpersonal narrative. Not necessarily promiscuous but does love a good conversation!

If Zukra receives drishti of Budha = similar but slightly less chatty effect.
