yet Surya's brilliant intelligent light is beautified by harmonizing Zukra, and the physical appearance is often quite lovely


Ragamala Raga Sri * King of love with pages c.1590

Das commentary: Sun conjoins Venus "Earns money by dealing in things having to do with
  • the eyes,
  • colors, paints,
  • or from the stage, theater, cinema, public amusements,
  • weapons, arms and ammunition.

Will be intelligent.

There may be gain through the spouse or their relations, or from other contacts due to the opposite sex.

Skillful in the use of weapons, mighty,

weak sighted in old age,

able to amuse the public,

libidinous, interested in music,

happy in regard to spouse and friends."

~~ Brihat Jataka of Varaha-mihira

Ch. 14, Shloka 1

"When the Sun is in the same sign with Venus, people gain wealth by wrestling and fighting with weapons."

Surya-Meza * uttama * Kriya * Arya * Arietis

Surya is highly empowered in the rashi of Kuja. Mangala is apprehended by Zukra as a samagraha * neutral . Zukra-Meza has a lovely boyish slender quality and enjoyment of athletic sports. The gracious concern for others is diminished and some of Zukra's relationship sweetness suffers the burnt-sugar scent of impatience and self-orientation. Yet there are benefits of this combination, including a toned and muscled athletic look, usually slender hips, and adolescent sizing which grant a fashionable, sporting appeal. One may be attractive to others when wearing competitive sporting gear, dancing, and expressing the artistic, athletic, or entertaining energy of youth. The father may be handsome, agreeable, inventive, sporting, artistic, and sensual. Outcome is defined by disposition of Mangala.

Surya-Vrizabha * Sthurin * Taurus

Surya's power is diminished in the rashi of Surya's enemy Zukra, but Zukra-Vrizabha gains strength in swakshetra. Feminine traits emphasized; Soft, rounded, sensuous, nicely balanced features. Looks good in meadows, pasturelands, farms and fields, forests, and in surroundings that features wines, perfumes, textiles and oils. The father may be handsome, agreeable; a banker, conservator, herder, and wealth-collector; artistic, and very sensual.

Surya-Mithunaya * Jaimini * Gemini

Professor Surya is neutral toward Mithunaya's ruler Budha. while Zukra experiences Budha as a mithrugraha * friendly influence.

  • Nativities with Surya + Zukra-Mithunaya = pleasantly friendly, talkative, clever with their hands. Usually likes to draw and write, and is often quite photogenic. Looks good and speaks pleasantly in conversational, small-group settings, team meetings. The father may be handsome, a specialist in information-delivery, artistic, and sensual. However the Budha-Surya pair are strictly angelic messengers

the nature and content of their message is provided by other graha via yuti or drishti.

Surya-Karkata * Karkata * Cancera * Khepra

Surya is a good friend to Chandra, while for Zukra-Karkata, Professor Chandra is a neutral influence. Unless severely combust, the nativity with Surya + Zukra has softly balanced features - yet emotionally potent and willful. Looks lovely in domestic settings where they rule the roost. One's father may be handsome, agreeable, engaged in defense or protection such as military or housing, artistic, and sensual.

  • How Will I Know 1963-2012 Whitney Houston * father military officer. Noted beauty with broad emotional appeal Chandra rules Surya yuti Zukra-12 addictions, private prayer, bedroom activities.

  • Cuba-Dictator 1926-2016 Fidel Castro had a handsome, wealthy, sugar-plantation grower father. Fidel's first wife was a beauty, but the marriage was brief due in part to interference from the wife's father in response to Castro's legendary infidelities (wife's father's influence over the wife is typical of Zukra-yuti-Surya particularly when Zukra is combust. There is a 25-degree gap between Castro's Surya at 27 degrees of Karkata in Azlesa, versus his Zukra at 2 degrees of Karka, in Punarvasu Nakshatra . The father-figure effects upon the wife are less than maximum, but Castro's first wife was likely much beholden to the will and beliefs of her father.

Surya-Simha * Simha * Leonis

  • Surya *Aithaya possesses a dominating hot bright self-centeredness in this yoga which tends to overwhelm Zukra-Singha 's cool beauty. Sweet, relationship balancing Zukra may feel burned up, charred, misused for political or entertainment purposes of the ego-membrane Sun. Women with Zukra-yuti-Surya-Simha may be attracted, then "burned out" by self-promoting males with center-stage personalities. The males tend to have been long accustomed to being the brilliant center of attention (such as an only child, or a child entertainer). By contrast, males with Zukra-yuti-Surya-Simha tend to "burn up" the women in their environment, charming but consuming and dominating with their brilliant hot personalities. If combust, Zukra has no power at all in Simha. One may enjoy a charming personality (or not) but the physical appearance typically not display Zukra's classic beauty. Tends toward rosacea with a dry, reddish overall complexion unless other factors such as a yuti Chandra might soften or lighten the appearance. Male native enjoys bright sunlight. The father may be handsome, agreeable, political, artistic, and sensual.

Surya-Kanya * Para-Persephone * Virago

  • Professor Ata * Surya is neutral to Professor Budha, while Zukra experiences Budha as a friendly influence. Zukra in Partha - weakened in nichha. No matter how attractive Zukra-Partha may appear to outsiders, the self-criticizing native struggles to perceive one's own beauty. The person with Surya + Zukra is mildly pretty and charming, but often some flaw in the conventional beauty such as an unusual body type or a mark on the face. Looks good in intellectual settings. Their attractiveness increases through added intelligence if Budha also joins Surya + Zukra-Kanya. The father may be handsome, agreeable, critically logical or technical, artistic, and sensual.

Surya-Vanika * nichha * Thula * Librae:

Surya suffers diminished centrality in the rashi enemy Professor Zukra, but swakshetra Zukra-Vanika gains strength. Feminine traits emphasized; soft, rounded, sensuous, nicely balanced features. Looks good in small groupings and pairings, in elegant surroundings. The native presents graciously, often displaying a fine sense of couture, color-palette, and decorative ornamentation. Typically a handsome visage of paler, slightly bluish complexion relative to the gene pool. Partnership style (Zukra) is diplomatic and decentralized. The beauty of the style (Zukra) may exceed the potency of the individual intelligence (Surya). The father may be handsome, agreeable, diplomatic, artistic, and sensual. Due to weakened nichha-Surya there may be some perceived weakness of the father, often regarding his conduct in relationships.

  • India-PM 1889-1964 Toward Freedom Jawaharlal Nehru (pushya). Nehru worked continuously to integrate Hindu and Muslim communities in the New India. Zukra-yuti-Surya * Budha-yuti-Surya * Zukra-yuti-Budha

  • Hour of Decision 1918-2018 Rev. Billy Graham * Surya-Zukra-Thula-6. His core message was that the covenant * swakshetra lagnesha Zukra * is stronger than the individual will * nichha-Surya. Graham married Prodigals 1920-2007 Ruth Bell Graham. Interestingly, her Surya-Mriga-Vrishabha-yuti-Zukra is stronger than Mr. Graham's Surya. Ruth's father (Surya-9) had been a religious missionary of a different doctrine. Despite her husband's high-profile televangelist ministry, Ruth did not convert her religious creed to match her husband's doctrine (see also his Ketu-1 personality dispersion). His Surya-yuti-Zukra demonstrates that his wife remained independent in matters of personal intellect (Surya) even while she cooperated (Zukra) in matters of finance.

Surya-Vrizchika * Kita * Scorpionis

Surya is empowered in the rashi of Kuja; yet Mangala is to Zukra a samagraha * neutral . Attraction * akarshana * to danger. Zukra-Vrizchika has a sweetly seductive, dark, penetrating look which can be healing but also controlling. One looks even-tempered and handsome in exploratory and therapeutically transformative settings. Is pleased to be in company of powerful people and environments which provide shocking discoveries, explosive revelations, sudden upheavals, mysterious forces, and dangerous secrets. The father may be handsome, agreeable, secretive or mysterious, artistic, and sensual. Outcome is defined by disposition of Mangala.

Surya-Dhanuzya* Taukshika * Sagit-Ariu

Professor Surya apprehends Brihaspati as a friend, while Guru is to Zukra a samagraha * neutral . Zukra-Dhanuzya provides an expansive, sweet loveliness which often appears slightly golden, slightly plump, with an attitude that is cheerful and optimistic. Looks attractive in ideological, doctrinal, preaching and higher-educational settings. The beauty of the teaching style (Zukra) is slightly dominated by the bright charm of the individual intelligence (Surya). One may be a charismatic preacher. The father may be handsome, agreeable, humanistic but dogmatic, artistic, and somewhat sensual. Outcome is defined by disposition of Brihaspati.

Surya-Makara * Capri-cornus * the Goat-horn

Surya feels oppressed by His strictly lawful ruler Shani the Legislator . Surya apprehends as a satrugraha * bitter enemy.

Yet Professor Shani is Zukra's great friend. When counted from the Makara baseline * lagna, Zukra becomes a yogakaraka-graha denoting success in matters of 5-creativity and 10-leadership. Thus Zukra is favored in the Zukra-Surya pairing while Professor Surya is Himself disempowered.

This yoga is generally easier to manage within a feminine nativity because Zukra has the advantage; it is also supportive generally of all Zukra-related functions such as advocacy, diplomacy, design, finance, bargaining, and contractual partnership. Zukra-Makara often provides an attractive architecturally balanced bone structure, fair complexion relative to the gene pool, and a relationship-building personality that is socially polite and attuned to status hierarchies.

Within environments that feature conventional ornamentation and costume, in lawful practice, in large regulated hierarchies, providing status-tagged (Makara) values (Zukra) one is pleased to join agreements. Partnership style (Zukra) is lawfully contractual. The architectonic order of the style (Zukra) may exceed the potency of the individual intelligence (Surya). The father may be handsome, agreeable, regular in habits, an appreciator of artistic design, and moderately sensual. Due to Shani-oppressed Surya there may be some perceived weakness of the father's integrity, often related to social materialism.

Surya-Kumbha * Ghata * Aquila the Eagle:

Surya's center-stage inclinations are much impeded in the web-that-has-no-center rashi of Shani-ruled Kumbha. Surya sees networker-Shani as a satrugraha * bitter enemy.

Yet Professor Shani is Zukra-Kumbha 's great friend. When counted from the Kumbh baseline * lagna, Zukra becomes a yogakaraka-graha denoting success in matters of 4-lands-and-vehicles and 9-humanism-and-wisdom. Thus Zukra is favored here while Surya is disempowered, and this yoga becomes generally easier in a feminine nativity. Surprising beauty, slightly eccentric in appearance but very attractive with balanced features and a subtle electric-blue tinge to the auric field. Delights (Surya light) in the company of friends. In group-energy environments the native appears pleasantly radiant.

Surya-yuti-Zukra is pleased to join agreements with others within goal-oriented, link-regulated, social-participatory environments. The most pleasing surroundings are interlinked large assemblies and and orderly economies of ideas, goods, and services. Due to the influence of Kumbha's co-ruler Rahu, one looks lovely in unusual dress, in large mixed groups, among a variety of exotic friends who share social and economic goals. The father may be handsome, agreeable, economically oriented, an appreciator of artistic design, and moderately sensual.

Surya-Meena * Antya-the-Whale * Piscetis * Fish

Surya sees Guru as a friend. Zukra sees Professor Guru as a samagraha * neutral. Often the native is blessed with a striking physical beauty. Yet, as always, additional graha in Zukra's bhava can alter the final outcome. Zukra-Meena * uttama often provides musical and artistic talents matching a very lovely appearance. Fair complexion relative to one's gene pool; balanced features and pronounced confidence due to Surya's happiness in the rashi of Guru. Expansive loveliness, with a golden, slightly plump, cheerful appearance. Looks handsone in artistic settings, when engaged in matters of belief or theory (due to Guru). Pleased to be in the company of politicians and entertainers (Surya) along with financiers, musicians and designer-arrangers such as diplomats. The father may be handsome, agreeable, philosophically inclusive, related to an artistic muse, and very sensual.

  • The father of POTUS-31-pair Girl Scouts 1874-1944 Lou Henry Hoover was a handsome man of many trades. He found financial success in the banking sector, but only after the family moved to the beautiful oceanside town of Monterey, Californa. Zukra-Meena needs a reflective, meditative environment.
  • POTUS-07 Indian Removal 1767-1845 Andrew Jackson was widowed age 62, only weeks before beginning his job as POTUS-07. He would have benefitted personally and professionally from taking a second life-partner, but seemed to have been blocked in realizing that potential. As a Euro-American slave owner, he had access to hundreds of silent, nameless African women slaves, and it is likely that the second and third wives represented by his Zukra-yuti-Budha-nichha (voiceless) and Zukra-yuti-Surya were slaves who could not in any case be formally married.

Career of Anuradha workaholic rescued by a diplomatic wife * Zukra

  • POTUS-11 Manifest Destiny 1795-1849 James Knox Polk had Zukra-Vanika yuti Surya-Vanika * nichha with Surya being the weak karmesha-10 while a powerful dig-bala Shani resides in bhava-7. Dysfunctionally for a career politician, Polk disliked socializing, which he considered a "waste of time". Luckily his agreement-builder wife liked to talk (see the 2-3-cluster in her nativity). Her advocacy for his ideas (which critics claimed were indeed her ideas) eventually earned him a trustworthy and dignified reputation.

A complex father - Surya-yuti-Zukra-Kanya-10

England-Queen 1533-1603 Elizabeth-1 * Kanya Surya-10 yuti the rogesha-6 nichha-Zukra yuti Uttama-Budha-10 shows the very complex and sometimes very difficult relationship between daughter Elizabeth and her notorious father England-King 1491-1547 Henry VIII Tudor .

  • Elizabeth was by all accounts one of the most successful monarchs in British history. Her father was both famous as a musician and supporter of arts throughout the land, and infamous as a criminal, murderer, and thief. Her father the corrected some England's worst debt problems (6) by stopping the outflow of English church-tax money into the coffers of Rome. In stanching this financial hemorrhage he was hailed as an economic hero by some (her nichha-Zukra Vriddhipathi-11 in 10, representing the finances of her Surya-father) . But he was judged a terrible thief by others, especially those clerics who lost their fees. England-King 1491-1547 Henry VIII Tudor died at age 55 from a deep-tissue wound infection from an old jousting injury (his rogesha-6 Shani in 5, injuries from entertainments). The infection was exacerbated by his diabetes (his Zukra-yuti-Ketu) and the extremely unsanitary conditions of the era. Her dharmesha-9 Surya in 10th shows her father's royal entitlements and his very high public visibility and the prominent role of Rahu-challenge to orthodox religion (9) in empowering his reign.


Snow Leopard

Physical body-shell is generally handsome and complexion somewhat more pale (Zukra) than average for the gene pool

Both husband-role and wife-figure nativities with Zukra + Surya are typically handsome in appearance. Even when other factors such as bodily girth (Guru) or irregularities (Rahu-Ketu) affect the appearance, one displays an attractive arrangement of facial features, colorings, textures et-cetera.

Exception to this rule = when the daityaguru Zukra joins Ravi in Simha rashi, particularly when Zukra suffers moudhya-dosha. Then Zukra's cool attractive beauty is overwhelmed by Surya's hot, masculine, idealistic self-assertion and the physical shell may produce a peculiar mottled high-red or high-white tone.

Zukra in bhava-1 + Surya in bhava-1

The husband-role-player is attracted to wife-figures who are dominated by their fathers' willful character and political ideals.

When Zukra-yuti-Surya occurs in the radical lagna, these wife-types have much ability to materially define the husband-role-player's ideals and social identity.

  • CNN buffalo lands 1938- Ted Turner displays behavior associated with Zukra + Surya as it applies to husband 's taste in wife-figures.

  • Zukra-Anuradha is a rule-enforcer but Zukra combust due to proximity of Surya at 3 deg.
  • Turner has been married and divorced three times. He has a lifelong reputation for promiscuity, along with deep philosophical idealism and a love of the Earth that has manifested in ecological political activism and bankrolling of large-scale environmental protections.
  • Turner's third wife, On Golden Pond 1937- drama-commerce Jane Fonda = a distinguished and talented personality in her own right, yet her life has been strongly and publicly influenced by her famous father (Surya) the celebrated thespian Henry Fonda.

Savitri 1872-1950 Shri Aurobindo

  • Zukra combust in mystical magical Magha. When Surya and Zukra join in the rashi of Simha, partnership-oriented Zukra is often overwhelmed by the self-centered politics-and-celebrity oriented Surya. However the regal energy of Magha, indicating an astral-traveling firelight priest, is very powerful. After a burst of volatile political activism incited by the Chandra-Mula-5 during Chandra mahadasha, the Magha spiritual programming overtook his political agenda.

Zukra in bhava-3 + Surya in bhava-3

Bhava-3 = commerce, writing, reports, handcraft, management, meetings, schedules, instruction, explanation, evangelism

"O" 1954- multimedia Oprah Winfrey has Zukra + Surya-yuti-Budha + Rahu-Makara -3 (communications media).

Zukra at 15-degrees of Makara-Shravana "the listener" suffers 100% moudhya-dosha.

  • Although Surya is weakened in Makara suggesting that her father was not a powerfully entitled person (he held a working class rank) nevertheless Oprah's father was a responsible man (Makara) and most importantly he was the central parent in her life.

  • Her extraordinary romantic idealism and dominant personal willfulness (Surya) would likely make the day-to-day petty negotiations of mundane marriage appear as rather uninteresting compared with her personal charisma.

  • Rahu-3 (desire to communicate) has a great deal of social-leadership influence in Oprah's nativity, because Rahu's Professor Shani occupies 10th-from-Rahu in uttama-Thula-12. Therefore she has chosen a path of high profile social leadership and corporate executive rather than the more commonplace role of wife.

POTUS-35 Profiles in Courage 1917-1963 John F Kennedy had Surya-yuti-Guru + Zukra-Vrishabha-3. His life partner POTUS-pair-35 editor 1929-1994 Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was a noted journalist (3) translator (3) and literary editor (3).

  • JFK's Surya = 15 Rohini while Zukra at 24 degrees = Mrigaziras. Zukra is just hovering on the border of moudhya-dosha.Zukra in husband's chart represents his feminine, receptive, attractive sensuality. Zukra represents his own attractiveness. Normally for a husband these are passive or dormant traits which he must manifest materially through the appearance and behaviors of his wife. Thus the wife should be well described through the characteristics of a husband's position of Zukra.

  • When Zukra-yuti-Surya in a husband's nativity, Surya can show the influence of the wife's father. The father of POTUS-pair-35 editor 1929-1994 Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was known as Black Jack Bouvier. He was a financier (Surya-Vrizabha yuti Zukra); he was best known as an extravagant womanizer, gambler, and alcoholic, as indicated by the excess sensuality of Zukra-yuti-Guru overwhelming the integrity of Surya. However his wife's stepfather was an empowering influence as indicated by JFK's 8th-from Zukra-yuti-Surya being the powerful Rahu-10-Dhanushya.

Marriage to Cousin; marriage settles into a Sibling relationship

The Zukra-Surya pair not only contains moudhya-dosha Zukra, but also the ruler of this pair is nichha-Shani-6.

POTUS-32 Fireside Chats 1882-1945 Franklin D. Roosevelt conducted a number of clandestine romantic relationships while governing the United States during 12 exceptionally volatile years, including the Great Depression and World War-2.

With Surya at 18 Shravana + Zukra at 15 Shravana, FDR had the expected difficulties and rewards in the character of his cousin and wife POTUS-pair-32 Learn by Living 1884-1962 Eleanor Roosevelt.

Zukra = highly combust, which suggests some imbalance-seeking-a-remedy or weakness for the wifely partners and the avowed contracts, particularly in regard to relationship promises (Zukra). Surya near to the combust Zukra would suggest that the wife may have a sensually problematic father. When Franklin Roosevelt's wife Eleanor was eight years old, her father impregnated his house-servant, then died in a sanatorium for toxic alcoholics. Long before her actual marriage, Eleanor's trust in men (Surya) was burned by her father's personal failures. Yet she developed a tremendous social idealism which ultimately became a gift to the depression-and-war shocked world.

Within his own personal life, FDR turned to several other women for romantic engagement and sensual pleasure, including long-time lover Lucy Mercer who was with FDR when he died.

His Zukra-yuti-Surya pairing accepts somewhat corrective drishti of nichha-Shani-Mesha which owns and aspects Zukra-Shani and which tends to strengthen combust-Zukra's weakened capacity for trust. FDR's unfaithfulness to his marriage vow was completely invisible to the naive public due to the Shani drishti, and did not harm their faith in his commitment to the nation.

POTUS-32 was faithful to the public trust (Shani) if not to the private trust. Yet nichha-Shani-6 (chronic debilitating illness) was so harsh in this duty that Roosevelt essentially died from the stress of his leadership burden during some of the darkest, bloodiest years of modern western history.

Zukra in bhava-4 + Surya in bhava-4 For one in the husband role, Zukra-yuti-Surya promises a very capable diplomatic and gracious wife who is nevertheless independent minded and decisive person who will do things in their own way. Long separation between the marriage partner are often caused by public responsibilities but also represent a need for psychic space between the partners.

Zukra acquires dig-bala * dignity * in bhava-4, carrying auspice of a well-managed home where a climate of agreement generally prevails.

Agriculture, regular meals, customary foods and festivals, village life, old ways, old-time religion, customary life rhythms, routines, wheel-ruts, wagons and vehicles of transport, schooling, parenting, shelters, foundations, basis of life, seasons, old age, retirement, burial

Zukra in bhava-5 + Surya in bhava-5

Microsoft 1955- philanthropist Bill Gates has Surya at 12 degrees of Thula in Swatika, while Zukra is at 25 Thula in Vishaka, and Shani nearby at 27 Vishaka.

  • Zukra does not suffer from moudhya-dosha, and Zukra + Shani is a exceptionally auspicious combination.

  • According to this constellation for a husband nativity, the wife is expected to be a woman of extraordinary grace of movement. Swati is graceful but often a small limp or irregularity in the gait. She would have excellent diplomatic capabilities. She has a dominant and perhaps less ethical father herself . Surya is nichha and not nichha-bhanga. She may have bent her own ideals to accommodate her father's will and beliefs.

  • However Shani provides a tremendous bulwark to the wife's personality, and she earns her own achievements by dint of hard work and persistence in duty. Excellent character. All of which is certainly an asset in marriage to a guy with a major Kuja dosha.

bandesha-4 Surya-Vrizchika in bhava-5 brought Mr. Churchill a strong expression of patriotic alliance via politics. Zukra takes no drishti; the situation is uncomplicated. Despite many long separations caused by mutual social duties, Churchill was legally married only once, and his elderly wife did not remarry when he died.

Moudhya * ashtangata * asta * harana * combust
  • within 9 degrees proximity to Surya

if Zukra = retrograde

  • moudhya-dosha = within 14 degrees of Surya


Hour of Decision 1918-2018 Rev. Billy Graham (6)


POTUS-32 Fireside Chats 1882-1945 Franklin D. Roosevelt

Zukra suffers moudhya-dosha= ashtangata harana = combust = within 9 degrees proximity to Surya

As Zukra approaches closer and closer to Surya, the daitya-guru experiences an erosion of power of material manifestation of Zukra's trusting, matching, balancing, yoking behaviors.

Zukra = minimally combusted "crispy" at a distance of nine degrees away from burning Surya, moderately combusted at a distance of 4-5 degrees from Surya, completely combusted at a distance of 0-1 degrees from Surya.

(However Shani can provide effective compensation for the weak trust factor of a ashtangata Zukra, see below.)

Zukra will be obliged to produce the results of His bhava and His drishti upon the astral planes, causal planes, or other dimension. The material, sensual, tangible effects are minimized.

Reduces influence of the aesthetic of balance during the (daily) partnership negotiations. Generally unsuitable for business partnership; more oriented to self-directed business (Surya).

In Thula Surya get nichha status and corruption is enhanced.

  • Hour of Decision 1918-2018 Rev. Billy Graham * Surya-yuti-Zukra-6 and Zukra is combust. He received most of his early funding from Newspapers 1863-1951 plutocrat William Randolph Hearst. Hearst was a fascist who wanted more political propaganda injected into Graham's sermons. In particular, Hearst needed Graham's sermons to encourage folks to blur the line between church and state so that patriotic Americanism and Protestant Christianity became indistinguishable and thus no choices or decisions need by made by individuals.

May approach the topics of marriage alliance, arrangement-making, deal-brokering, and legal contracts with some trepidation.

BPL: if the combust Zukra also lacks favorable drishti, this condition can give an unbalanced autistic effect in relationships.

With no malice aforethought, the native is simply not aware of the needs or expectations of the partner. The partner may feel"invisible".

The male native with asta Zukra may waste a good deal of time looking for a"divinely perfect" (Surya) feminine partner. As with Zukra-Simha, one expects marriage to provide ideal conditions for the promotion of one's own ego-membrane interests. One may be simply unable to identify the interests of the Other, and proceed on the working assumption that the Other has no interests and will not develop any.

Relationships with women are difficult in general as the native attracts highly egocentric or uncooperative women into his life, both professionally and personally. Often the spouse is reclusive; her husband outshines her.

If Zukra is an uncomfortable influence e.g. for Meena lagna, then moudhya Zukra can create a positive outcome by reducing the capabilities of a negative agent.

~~ Behari commentary = Surya conjoined with Venus "If Venus is combust, the native will be extravagant,

and an attachment with persons whose affairs are always in a deranged or ruinous state,

and his property will be continually wasted in retrieving them."

Zukra = women in general, relationships in general, social contracts, and the role of the wife

"Husband" and "Wife" are social roles --- not anatomical identities.

Thus wife-1 = the person who fulfills the balancing, adjusting, beautifying and harmonizing roles in the alliance. A wife-figure may possess any sort of anatomical equipment = male, female, mixed, neither.

The essence of the wife-figure is equity-seeking, balancing adjustability which permits sustaining of the relationship (in the Old English, 'wiffe' = 'bread-maker').

  • For a husband, Zukra represents wife-1 persona, relationships with women in general (sisters, women colleagues, neighbors) and also the quality and quantity of the marriages.

  • For a wife, Zukra represents the quality of peer relationships with partners of either gender, relationships with women in general (sisters, women colleagues, neighbors) and also the quality and quantity of the marriages.

  • ** note that Mother is represented by matrikaraka Chandra. Mother is not Zukra.

When Zukra suffers moudhya-dosha, wife-1 role-holder (Zukra) is likely to be ambivalent regarding the marriage promise and may decline the legal contract.

Shani can mitigate combust Zukra's ambivalence

If yuvatipathi-7 is strong, or dignified Shani in bhava-7, or a Shani drishti upon Zukra-yuti-Surya coming from Shani can impose extra anti-movement structure upon combust Zukra's tendency toward weakened trust in partnership, thus limiting the range of the native's mobility outside of the contractual union.

The inherently weak faithfulness to contract and"burned out" low-trusting behavior of ashtangata Zukra in 9, 1, or 4 may be substantially corrected by drishti from a dig-bala Shani-7 .

If Zukra occupies bhava-9, bhava-1, or bhava-4 WHILE receiving drishti of the dignified Shani-7 is ALSO occupying Makara or Kumbha, nearly all of the human-partnership weakness of Zukra may be corrected.

Weakness when manageable presents opportunities for growth.

When Zukra-yuti-Surya, Shani's drishti also affects Surya. Thus Surya's "burning" influence expressed via the father's dominating willfulness is also reduced by a Shani drishti to the Zukra-yuti-Surya pairing. Shani drishti results in more impact of Shani's narrative of social duty, and less impact by the heat of the father's egocentric willpower.

  • For example, one whose deeply combust Zukra accepts the drishti of a strong Shani would find that their choice of life partner would be dominated by their father's preferences. But, if Shani offers some correction. then the choice of life partner (Zukra) is also pressured by social duty concerns such as profession and public respect (Shani). The final outcome displays two contradicting sources of pressure - the father's will vs. the social order - resulting in a somewhat milquetoast personality whose relationships are dictated largely by social expectations .

Also Shani drishti to Zukra can make the life-partner elder to oneself. The stronger Shani's influence, the more elder the partner. Thus the maximum drishti from Shani upon a combust Zukra-Kumbha-Makara could result in a significantly elder partner who would likely have a socially respected profession.

However the burnt-sensuality behaviors of combust Zukra such as stinginess and anhedonia (shunning of pleasure) can be much reinforced by drishti of a strong Shani! Peer contracts, may be defined by their shared work duties.

Shani drishti imposes a narrative of social duty. Resulting from drishti of dignified Shani, native despite their self-orientation may become competently socially responsible in contract dealings, once a clear understood deal has indeed been agreed. Terms of promise must be lawful and simple (Shani) for Shani drishti to have the stabilizing"no movement" effect.

Shani-7 or Shani drishti to the Zukra-yuti-Surya pairing = loyalty to the social regularizing function (Shani) of interpersonal alliances, even while the ashtangata Zukra indicates relatively weak trust in the individual partner.

cintamani * mani * money , wealth, art, aesthetics

Zukra dhanakaraka = luxury, material wealth, artistic balance and design, sense pleasures

Zukra combust = luxury, pleasure in spending money, pleasure in delicious sensual pleasures = "burned out".

Resulting aesthetics may include general stinginess, frugality, disfavoring embellishment, shunning pleasure (medical term = anhedonia). The more combust is Zukra, the more stingy the native. If combust Zukra receives the drishti of Shani, potential for"Mean Mr. Mustard" chronic conservation behaviors.

Social arrangements (Zukra)favor the ego-membrane (Surya)

Strong influence * potentially dominance * of central roles = father-self-king

  • Father-figures (Surya)
  • and politics-celebrity-entertainments (Surya)

upon the native's peer relationships (Zukra)

The human personality consists of multiple shells * sheaths * membranes which surround and protect the pure core being. These many membranes are all to some extent porous and psychically interactive, but some shells are less permeable than others. Nine of these shell * membranes are Jyotisha-identified with the nine graha.

When Surya and Zukra share a rashi, the self-centered ego-membrane tends to have more operating fuel than the other-accommodating, adjusting, negotiating interactive membranes operated by counseling-advising Zukra.

Opinions of the father and masculine-authority figures (Surya) and matters of political rights and entitlements (Surya) strongly impact the trusting, matching, pairing, balancing, yoking behaviors of Zukra.

Due to Surya's bright heat , when pale, cool Zukra is combust, the influence of masculine roles, father-figures and concerns of political empowerment are dominantly strong.

Surya-related thoughts, persons, and actions regarding one's personal engagement with politics, personal charisma, entertainments, entitlements can overwhelm Zukra's portfolio of agreements, alliances, partnerships, matches, deals, negotiation and brokerage.

The outcome is a self-directing personality which is not barred from entering unions, but once committed to an alliance is rather less accommodating to the constituency and more focused on self-interest.

Surya + Zukra and Mangala + Zukra can be associated with facial Rosacea rosiness * ruddiness
