~~ The Book of Job * Iyov 33:28

"He redeemed my soul from going down to the pit,

and I will live to enjoy the light."

When Chandra co-tenants a bhava with Rahu, the native = psycho-emotionally complex due to exaggerated fluctuations of the natural emotional cycles.

The Vimshottari dasha periods of Rahu and Chandra = emotionally charged

  • Soma is reflective, absorptive, and accommodating.

  • Soma psycho-emotionally sensitizes Rahu.

  • irregular, unsettled kamakaraka, chalakaraka Rahu = planetary enemy toward rhythmic, habitual, settled Chandra.

Emotionally expedient.

Chandra-Rahu yoga is generally disruptive but impassioning.

Patriotic (Chandra) passion

Typically one has an expediently ambitious mother who achieves considerable social mobility via the means of the bhava in which Chandra-yuti-Rahu resides.

  • POTUS-06 American System 1767-1868 John Quincy Adams had a remarkably influential mother whose role in establishing the government of the New Republic was very substantial despite her late 1700's modesty. POTUS-pair-02 Letters 1744-1818 Abigail Adams is considered by historians to have been fully a member of the "Founding Fathers" group of leaders who wrote the documents establishing the laws and policies of the newly born revolutionary nation. (Rahu-10)

Chandra-yuti-Rahu can yield distinctive results in matters of material achievement when related to a strong benefic or when residing in kendra, particularly in karmasthana-10 where it signals leadership prestige.

Amplified desires for the soothing routines of comforting candescent Chandra: roots, lands, shelters, nourishment, protection, security, routines, patriotic and parental emotions, rhythms of life, ownership, agricultural fishing, seasonal patterns, tidal flow, comfort.

  • POTUS-11 Manifest Destiny 1795-1849 James Knox Polk yuti Rahu * operated slave-labor plantations in Tennessee, producing cotton, tobacco, and food crops. As he grew wealthier, he bought more land and more slaves to farm the land.

One seeks emotional identity validation through breaking emotional barriers, being recognized as special or charismatic, and having strongly desirous feelings toward others.

Associated with amplified mental compulsions and emotional volatility.

May produce compulsive emotional behavior, depending on the bhava.

  • Egypt-King 1920-1965 Farouk al-Awwal had randhresha Chandra + Mangala-yuti-Rahu-Thula-classroom-11 from Ketu-ruled Mula radical lagna. The Chandra-Rahu pair is very much energized by vidyapathi-5 Kuja = gambling. Rahu's ruler Zukra occupies the Dhanuzya lagna. His Majesty was a "friendly" (11) fellow on a Rahu-ized grand scale. His notorious parties booked entire casino-hotels and continued for days.

  • CNN buffalo lands 1938- Ted Turner according to previous spouses, destroyed three marriages via high-risk infidelities. However that same risk-taking emotion contributed to his extraordinary success in acquisitions and mergers.

Kamakaraka Rahu + sukhakaraka Chandra = characteristics of emotional impatience to realize one's desires

Emotionally impatient and often incapable of accepting procedural delays in matters of social or emotional recognition and approval.

  • Louisiana-Gov 1893-1935 Kingfish Huey P. Long could not tolerate long discussions and delays on his proposed infrastructure developments Chandra-Rahu-4 infrastructure. He wanted buildings, roadways, and housing and he wanted it now. Therefore he used bribery and habitually removed the state jobs of the relatives of those politicians who opposed his programs.

Chandra-yuti-Rahu projects their own needs and desires upon others. By contrast, Chandra-yuti-Ketu allows others to project their personal needs upon the native .

Both conjunctions may exhibit boundary issues which can be addressed successfully by reflection and awareness of psychic Best Practice.

Amplified emotional need, strong material desire nature .

  • One is passionate about life and plunges into relationships with full-on soothing, parental, sheltering, protective powers.

  • Tendency to overwhelm others in the environment, especially intimate partners. Extremely sensitive and controlling emotionally.

Projects one's own feelings upon others .

  • Can be psychically invasive, but also charismatic, fascinating, full of charm. Likes to stimulate the feelings of others and take psycho- emotional risks.

Parenting intensity and instrumental display

The impulsive qualities of Rahu/Chandra promote early motherhood and may generate an unpredictable, self-reflexive, or impatient style of parenting. Caring for children or weakling-others is an instinctive nurturing outreach action which is however appropriated by Rahu's compulsive drive to self-elevate.

  • POTUS-11 Manifest Destiny 1795-1849 James Knox Polk * Rahu-Karkata yuti Chandra-Karkata-9 ideology beliefs. Polk was a defender of slavery as the customary (Chandra) Euro-settler mechanism for development of agricultural plantations (Chandra). He was himself an ambitious (Rahu) planter who operated slave-labor plantations in several states. His dogma considered slaves to be a class of subhuman beings who, as an item owned property, needed supervision and protection (Chandra) from their owners.

Parenting and, by extension, marriage may devolve into instrumental means to ever-striving Rahu 's aspirations and the process of bhava-keeping, gardening, nurturing a home-based marriage, and raising children loses much of its inherent domestic contentment.

According to the wikipedia: Ashraf Pahlavi. The twin sister of the deposed Shah of Iran= a highly compromised Anuradha Chandra-yuti-Rahu.

  • "1980 interview with New York Times..., Pahlavi stated, "I have never been a good mother. Because of my way of life, I was not with my children very much".

  • Additionally, while Pahlavi was living in exile in New York, her husband ... remained in Paris and the two rarely saw each other"

Women naturally self-identify with their maternal nurturing powers. However, with Rahu+Chandra, the identification becomes not a source of emotional groundedness but rather a platform from which to self-elevate socially.

Chandra-yuti-Rahu experiences the Chandra-style acts of sheltering, protecting and defending as emotionally exciting, and power-validating.

Typically the native 's dominant parent, usually the mother, also lacked boundary consciousness . The dominant parent may have felt free to project their own feelings and perceptions upon the child. the native replicates this emotional habit in the process of raising their own children.


One's own relationship with one's parents becomes highly complicated, particularly when the parents also have 'nodal moons'

A family of Examples:


Life with a Rahu/Chandra person can easily become a soap opera. Chandra-yuti-Rahu generates a deep need for intensely needy (Chandra), reactive, and volatile relationships with emotional intimates (parents, children, lovers) that is never satisfied (Rahu).

One may feel emotional need for risk-driven excitement. The excitement producer = Rahu, whose ambition drives The preposterous but rapid quest for higher privilege (Rahu). The cycle cannot be fully satisfied; the kamakaraka's desire recycles in perpetuity.

Unfortunately due to the bbsessive-compulsive ambitions of get it now Rahu , the cycle is rarely broken by mature consciousness.

In extreme cases involving Shani, Kuja, or temporal papa-graha, the mother may be so addicted to invasive control that the natural maturing separation of her children is perceived as a threat to her survival.

This extreme dependency on one's projected self-image as a nurturing, protective mother (which cannot be sustained as the child grows independent) may lead to clinical conditions such as 'Borderline' Personality Disorder.

  • The more common manifestation is a restless desire for intense emotional contact

  • Seeks emotional validation as a super-parent.

For these natives, demand for a deeper satisfaction penetrates all of life.

the native may be be charismatic, creating a social ambience of excitement and personalized engagement, if Chandra is in a good rashi or bhava, and well supported by Chandra's lord.

However, in an uncomfortable rashi, or in dushthamsha, Rahu + Chandra may attract public censure. the native may get involved with taboo activity (esp. sexual taboos, especially if Kuja is involved) and in their passion to be emotionally "involved" may cross approved social boundaries.

In the reactive, invasive parenting style especially, children's psychic integrity may be compromised. If punitive Shani is involved, harsh punishments to children, by the afflicted parent, may cause social consternation.

Can be a fabulous hands-on healer with good tutoring on boundaries. When these folks are given permission to enter the deep inner space of a wounded person, they can work true magic. the native may be a psychic or intuitive reader/healer, if Budha is strong.

Even when socially successful, this native will have boundary issues. One must acquire the wisdom to respect others' limits. To live happily, the native must give vent to one's healing/penetrating/invasive/protective instincts. Yet, self-knowledge (when that is available!) also directs that this native must be guided and supervised to manage their personal extremes.


Sudden and dramatic emotional changes causes by eruption of privilege-claiming or power- possessive desires in the Mother.

The Mother is the primary agent of personal disruption. She is unstable emotionally, excitable, volatile in her relationship with the child, and often involved in some variety of taboo cultural mixing or emotionally disruptive, manipulative, controlling, or possessive behavior toward the child.

Chandra craves emotional protection, the Mother may send out two sets of different or contradictory signals: one set encouraging the child to follow all the accepted social protocols in order to always be safe, and another more subtle set of role-modeling behaviors which exemplify courage in challenging rigid rules and taking emotional risks.

Characteristically an emotional risk-taker. Enthusiasm for jumping into new identities, for accepting nurturing and caretaking opportunities in unusual circumstances, and for challenging the stable emotional balance in existing interpersonal relationships.


Males may possess an unusually high level of female intuition and a deep interest in healing. Females are capable of assuming conventionally male roles with aplomb.

Often a fascinating person mesmerizing charismatic, attractive, and somewhat mysterious.

  • Like a swaying cobra, this native is the object of much public fascination (both positive and negative).

Likely to achieve fame or notoriety for their ability to successfully challenge cultural taboos and win remarkable struggles with social convention"against the odds ".

Male is interesting to women. Female is charismatic and exciting. Both males and females are able to challenge the cultural norms which dictate emotional and sexual relationship legitimacy, switching gender roles and adapting to new emotional identities with ease.

Extra-ordinary (Rahu) familiarity Chandra to the public.

Empathetic appeal (Soma) for extraordinary promotion and privilege (Rahu).

Emotional expediency.

Emotional Over-reaching

Exotic appeal to the classes which form the base of society

Amplification of ambition to obtain parochial, parental, agricultural, familiar, localized, rhythmic, comfortable, homelander entitlements

  • Dittoheads 1951- radio polemic Rush Limbaugh is known for his powerful emotional appeal to conservative listeners who feel resentment about a perceived loss of entitlement (Rahu) and loss of customary ways in the land (Chandra). His performance is also known for high-permission (Guru) emotional expediency (Rahu + Chandra-yuti-Guru) to falsify statistics, hurl insults, and make incendiary statements (Rahu-3) for purpose of engaging the audience (3).

Exaggeration and amplification of the emotional feelings. Particularly represents the characteristic and forever recycling need for an immediate, absolute, utterly complete emotional merger with another human being.

Chandra-yuti-Rahu may signify emotionally intense and potentially taboo-breaking relationships with caretakers, schoolteachers, parents, and mother-figures (Chandra).

  • Das Kapital 1818-1883 economics Karl Marx had a long-running affair with his housekeeper, who eventually bore him a child

The mother is an extreme person: passionate, sensitive, and significantly lacking emotional boundaries. The mother may be emotionally invasive, a hyper-nurturer, a rescuer-protector, or some other dramatized emotional character depending on Soma's rashi.

The Nakshatraoccupied by Chandra is also very important to understand the inner needs of this native.

Chandra-yuti-Rahu = at least twice married and has a volatile while also very intensely engaged relationship with one's mother, unless the teachings of Professor Chandra are subject to prolonged and repeating lessons (usually via constrictive drishti).

The passions run strong.

Emotional needs are dramatic and volatile.

One seeks impulsive, often overtly instrumental ways to satisfy one's need for emotional security.

One may take risks (Rahu) and break taboos (Rahu) in order to gain access to beauty and luxury

A passionate desirer of harmonious agreements especially marriage (Zukra).

  • However unless Shani constrains Rahu, one may be highly impatient (Rahu) with the negotiated balance and be looking for a replacement forthwith.

Chandra-yuti-Rahu produces emotional volatility and intensely magnified passions.

Marriage: Rahu-yuti-Chandra

The mate, signified by Ketu in 7th-from-Chandra, may have qualities of "mismatch" and oddly peculiar in character.

Much depends upon Ketu's bhava.

  • Top Gun 1962- drama-commerce Tom Cruise * 3 marriages Chandra-Pushya = regulator of the customary pathways. Mr. Cruise's first wife (a dramatist, later a businesswoman) is represented by Ketu-3 exactly conjunct to Shani-Makara. This Ketu-3 loses much of its ephemeral nature and gains solidity (Shani) of pragmatic commercial management (3). The spouse may seem peculiarly quiet (Ketu) and unassuming (Shani) compared to the passionate personal ambitions of the Chandra-yuti-Rahu-yuti-Zukra native, but the character of the first spouse is mature and the marriage longer-lasting than expected via the dutiful, responsible nature of Shani. Indeed this couple maintained a business relationship long after the end of the first marriage.

  • Das Kapital 1818-1883 economics Karl Marx * Surya-yuti-Chandra-yuti-Rahu put his Ketu-9 Thula in 7th-from-Chandra . Marx adored his wife as a source of wisdom and fortune in his life (9). She was an ephemeral sensitive high-born lady and he was a brilliant but indelicate polemical writer. He basically "married up" into higher resources. It was due mainly to his wife and her parents that Marx had a bourgeois house with servants in London in which to write his tomes, while his children wore nice clothes and gained a literary education. However while he continued to follow his Ketu-wife's ideological guidance in matters of doctrine and principle (9) -- in matters of the passions he soon took up with the live-in housekeeper, with whom he produced a child.

Marriages

Rahu-yuti-Chandra indicates magnified, amplified, ambitious emotional neediness, suggesting that the native is a central focus of nourishment in the partnership which may leave the partner somewhat drifting or abandoned. Betrayal of the marriage promise is not necessarily forecast; however if the culture permits remarriage, and other factors point to multiple spouses, the emotionally passion of Rahu-yuti-Chandra is also a factor in ambitious (Rahu) marriage arrangements.

  • England-King 1491-1547 Henry-VIII Tudor * 6 marriages Chandra Jyeztha = regulator of alliances

  • Devdas 1973- drama-commerce Aishwarya Rai

  • Esoteric Astrology 1925-2005 Bepin Behari

  • POTUS-11 Manifest Destiny 1795-1849 James Knox Polk was married only once to the capable Sarah Childress Polk. A sober Anuradha personality, Polk sired no children and had little social life beyond what Sarah arranged for him. Ketu-yuti-Guru in 7th-from-Chandra suggests a potential for multiple liaisons, but Polk's character is described as sober in the extreme and dedicated to his work (Anuradha). He died at 53 leaving Sarah a widow for the next 40 years.

  • Shani of Iran 1941-1979 M. Reza Pahlavi * 3 marriages Chandra-Anuradha = regulator of alliances

  • CNN buffalo lands 1938- Ted Turner * 3 marriages, numerous unions Chandra Chitra = architect Tvashtri of communication networks, pursuer of jewels

1 - fleshly appearance, unique personality

2 - treasuries of treasury + historical values, voice

3 writing, media production, messaging, commerce

  • Das Kapital 1818-1883 economics Karl Marx

  • Rahu = Great Leap Upward to a higher station or rank, energized by ambitious desire

  • Chandra = mother, parents, childhood home, folkways customs , nurturing, acceptance, emotional security, belongingness

Rahu + Chandra = Sudden and dramatic emotional changes causes by eruption of status-seeking ambition or privilege-seeking desire in the Mother.

Parents

If Chandra is otherwise stable, the parents may coordinate as a team thus Chandra's effects may be attributable to both parents working in concert. In the narrative below substitute the word"parents " for the word"mother" if the homelife is fairly steady.


Mother = a highly complex influence upon the native . More so if there are additional graha yuti Chandra-yuti-Rahu .

Example of a super-complex mother:

  • the very complex role of a notoriously over-promoting stage-mother can be seen for actress-model Brooke Shields = "busybody" Chandra-Mrigaziras + Rohini "look at me" Rahu + Surya-yuti-Guru + atmakaraka swakshetra Zukra + Budha - yes 6 graha in karma bhava dominated by Zukra=beauty = public visibility , and Ms. Shields' Rahu mahadasha began at age 4. Her long-suppressed depression emerged only after becoming a mother herself.

  • The mother of Twilight of the Idols 1844-1900 Friedrich Nietzsche raised her children as a widow. Mother, along with N's 'spinster' sister, was tightly controlling, wanting to appropriate his prestige, and together they reputedly prevented his marriage. His sister later, when N went insane, co-opted his philosophical writings, adjusting them to fit her emerging Nazi ideology.

  • As a young adult at his mother's request (Chandra) Louisiana-Gov 1893-1935 Kingfish Huey P. Long trained as a Baptist-Christian preacher. However there is a tremendous tension in his nativity between bhava-4 (very strong, mother) and bhava-9 (very strong, father). Feeling unsuited for the caretaking duties of a preacher, he followed his father (9) into politics. In the footsteps of the original Christian, Mr. Long quickly built a power-base via appeal to the disenfranchised, exploited and frustrated poor-folk (Rahu = outsiders). Rising to a powerful controlling role as governor then quickly elected to the USA Senate during the USA Great Depression, Long the Baptist allied himself with a prominent radical radio-preaching Catholic priest (Rahu = mixing). Drawing together several populist, religious movements, the Share Our Wealth political party was building toward a nationally legislated redistribution of financial wealth , when Long was assassinated at age-42 (Surya-Ketu period).

When Chandra-yuti-Rahu, "mom" the primary agent of both self-elevation into higher rank-visibility-privilege and also she causes the most dramatic personality development disruption. the native must please the mother and the mother wants the native to behave in ways which increase the mother's own status-rank.

  • UK-Prince 1948- Charles of Wales was told by his parents (mother) whom to marry, when, and why. The result was notoriously disruptive to his personality development and his personal life remained in an adolescent state for decades.

Mother may behave in an excitable, volatile fashion due to her personal ambition invested in the desired behavior of the child. Manipulation via withholding then flowing affection and praise is often the only effective method to get the child to do what is wanted.

Mother may transmit two sets of different or contradictory signal-sets:

  • one set encouraging the child to follow all the accepted social protocols in order to always be safe (Chandra),

  • another more subtle set of role-modeling behaviors which exemplify excitement, ambition, and positive gain resulting from acceptance of risk (Rahu).

the native is oneself, characteristically, an emotional risk-taker. Enthusiasm for jumping into new identities, for accepting nurturing and caretaking opportunities in unusual circumstances, and for challenging the stable emotional balance in existing interpersonal relationships.

Jaimini Sutram, Ch4, Shloka 53-54

(Trans. P.S. Sastri, Ranjan Publications, New Delhi, 1987)

"If the Moon and Rahu are together in ninth from the Atmakaraka or Lagna,

the child will assume the nature of the destroyer of every thing."


Rahu drishti to Chandra

Due to Rahu's ability to cast drishti upon the bhava 5-7-9 from His radical place, Rahu drishti to Chandra is quite commonplace.

Nevertheless the drishti of Rahu upon Chandra indicates an emotional-development disorder (Rahu) of some variety. It need not be severe but it will be present. Some disruption (Rahu) of the flow of mother-nurturing protection generally occurs when Chandra accepts a drishti of Rahu.

  • The normal, grounded and supporting, protective and sheltering relationship with the mother and mother-figures (Chandra) is disturbed (Rahu).

Furthermore, the childhood home is destabilized due to the mother's exotic (unconventional) behavior, and there may be interruption of the normal security derived from organic development of the childhood relationships due to movement away from the place of birth. The most typical expression is that mother accepts professional duties outside the home while the children are still developing. Whichever bhava is owned by Chandra will show the unusual behavior of the mother.

  • In the case of Thula lagna the mother may be called away from child-nurturing by a distinguished professional career because Chandra = karmesha-10 ; yet in the case of Kumbha lagna the mother often has a deep illness or consequences of exploitation, due to Chandra = rogesha-6 .

Often the mother has some type of emotionally unstable (Rahu) desire behavior such as emotionally-driven need for self-promotion, possibly careerism which takes the mother out of the home (Chandra) and promotes one into the public view via career responsibilities; or addiction, crime, promiscuity, or other disruptions of the mother's dedication and attention to the well-being of the child.

The interrupted (Rahu) development undergoes a spin-doctor"cover-up" (Rahu, eclipse) in the native 's self-narrative.

Often the role of the mother or mother-figure is amplified into some saintly or exotic persona that is a super-mother.

  • The female native carries this inflated-nurturer-healer expectation into her own life, where she may easily pursue the psychically disabling role of"out of control healer" .

  • The male native may cover up his knowledge of the emotional shortcomings of his mother with tales of her great sensitivity, care-taking, and parental concern. He may attract wives and female care-takers with the same interrupted-emotional-development dysfunctions displayed by the mother.

14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso

Stages of Meditation

root text by Kamalashila, trans. Geshe Lobsang Jordhen, Losang Choephel Ganchenpa, and Jeremy Russell, p.76

"What is the Bodhisattva's Way of life?

It is the way of life that follows naturally from having cultivated the awakening mind of bodhicitta. Omniscience is achieved only through the process of purifying the disturbing emotions within your mind. It cannot be achieved merely through wishes and prayers.

  • We have to train in eliminating all the specific disturbing emotions within your mind.
  • We have to train in eliminating all the specific disturbing emotions by relying on specific antidotes.

All the activities of a Bodhisattva can be included in two major categories:

  1. the practice of skillful means
  2. the practice of wisdom.

If the practices of giving, ethics, and so forth are to be perfected, they should be supported and influenced by the practice of wisdom. Without the practice of wisdom, the first five of the six perfections cannot actually become practices of perfection. In order to cultivate such wisdom, you must first cultivate the genuine unmistaken philosophical view that is known as the view of the Middle Way, or Madhyamika.

...even when you have understood the wisdom realizing emptiness, that alone will not become a powerful antidote to ignorance if it is not supported by other practices such as giving, ethics, patience , and so forth. Mere understanding of selflessness is not sufficient to defeat the disturbing emotions."
