IT CAN GO EITHER WAY

Taking the Leap: Freeing Ourselves from Old Habits and Fears

by Pema Chödrön,

page 70

"Underlying hatred, underlying any cruel act or word, underlying all dehumanizing, there is always fear - the utter groundlessness of fear.

This fear has a soft spot. It hasn't frozen yet into a solid position.

However much we don't like it, fear doesn't have to give birth to aggression or the desire to harm ourselves or others.

When we feel fear or anxiety or any groundless feeling, or when we realize that the fear is already hooking us into I'm going to get even” or I have to go back to my addiction to escape this,” then we can regard the moment as neutral, a moment that can go either way."

Addiction

Some indications of Addictive behaviors

Rahu-Ketu = no-boundaries, 6 = imbalance, and the Daityaguru = sweets

BPL commentary Vimshottari dasha of Shukra

BPHS Zukra Mahadasha

- W. C. Fields

" Once, during Prohibition, I was forced to live for days on nothing but food and water."

Addiction = a personal behavior which is considered to become a health disorder when it damages or interrupts one's ability to perform one's normal tasks.

All addictions are exploitive. Addictions produce the perception of short-term pleasure followed by a cycle of victimization (6) powerlessness (6) and shame (6).

Almost any behavior can become exploitive (6) and addictive.

  • Any behavior that creates emotional intensity (whether positive or negative) can become compulsively repetitive and any desire can become insatiable.

  • Any human behavior has the potential to force abandonment (Ketu) one's normal, culturally-approved life task routines (Shani) within marriage, family, profession, etc. in pursuit of an obsessive (Rahu) pleasure (Shukra).

The most obvious addictions involve amplified sense-pleasures such as sexual gratification, oral pleasures of food and drink, and nerve pleasures such as numbing drugs and other brain-chemistry alterations. However one may also become addicted to gambling, to extracting bribes and illegal payments, to shop-lifting, to marital argument, to criticizing and belittling others, and a hundred other dysfunctional attempts to make oneself feel better by

Unfortunately, addictions are insatiable; therefore Shukra's ultimate pleasures of satisfaction, harmony, balance, completion through union et-cetera are rarely realized when one suffers from addiction. In addition one falls victim to social criticism for the crime of exiting normalcy.

Shukra = karaka for all pleasures including addictive pleasures, and Shukra is the lord of Sugar.

Professor Shukra specializes in a wide range of subjects linked to pleasures of the senses and the experience of matched balance. One of the subjects upon which He teaches is the doctrine of sexual pleasure, numbing drugs and delirium of alcohol . If Shukra is disturbed or over-empowered in relation to the other graha, His curriculum can be so ambitious that the native may be encouraged to over-do the natural pleasures which can result in syndromes of sex addiction, drug addiction, and alcoholism.

In any bhava, Zukra-yuti-Rahu or Zukra-yuti-Ketu may provide some experience of obsessive-compulsive (Rahu) or boundary-dissolving (Ketu) sensual behavior. Addictive tendencies are enhanced but not assured when Professor Shukra is either amplified by Rahu or when concern with consequences is dissolved (Ketu).

uttama-Zukra , swakshetra Zukra in kendra , or any planetary situation in which Professor Shukra gains significant empowerment suggests a long-term attraction (Zukra) to achieve interior (physical-emotional) and exterior (social-material) balance via sensual ease and pleasure

Zukra-yuti-Rahu is a particular flag for potentially addictive entitlements. Professor Rahu has a powerful sense of entitlement to sense-pleasure coupled with an ambitious love of boundary-challenging extremes. Addictive substances favored by Professor Rahu when He couples with Shukra may include beautiful women, exquisite music, fine art, precious wines, magnificent diamonds, and other artifacts of Shukra.

INVOLUNTARY ESCAPES


Living Beautifully with Uncertainty and Change

by Pema Chödrön, p. 31

"Many of our escapes are involuntary: addiction and dissociating from painful feelings are two examples.

Anyone who has worked with a strong addiction - compulsive eating, compulsive sex, abuse of substances, explosive anger, or any other behavior that's out of control - knows that when the urge comes on it's irresistible.

The seduction is too strong. So we train again and again in less highly charged situations in which the urge is present but not so overwhelming.

By training with everyday irritations, we develop the knack of refraining when the going gets rough.

It takes patience and an understanding of how we're hurting ourselves not to continue taking the same old escape route of speaking or acting out."

Sugar and sweets

Zukra in bhava-6 or bhava-12 particularly indicates imbalance regarding sugars and pleasures.

  • When Professor Shukra establishes His classroom in the inherently imbalanced, remedy-seeking bhava-6, drug addiction and sexual exploitation can involve the Shukra's instructions with in underworld environments (6) of decadence, poverty and crime. If Professor Budha is also residing in or casting drishti into bhava-6, the imbalance-seeking-a-remedy environment may feature lying and involvement with criminal finance such as predatory loan-making and sale of illicit substances.

An otherwise wonderful uttama-Zukra in the satkona may produce financial treasures, external beauty, and artistic talent. Yet in addition, a potential exists to discover a profound underlying alcoholism or other pleasure addiction. The addictive behaviors often attract substances of delicate and exquisite characteristics such as fine wines, beautiful lovers, and delicate perfumes; however the relationship to these items is addictive.

  • Cleopatra 1932-2011 AIDS activist Elizabeth Taylor was a stunningly beautiful much-divorced philanthropist minister to the ostracized AIDS victims. She demonstrated all the plusses-and-minusses of Zukra-yuti-Rahu in bhava-6. Ms. Taylor demonstrated the classic craving (Rahu-Zukra) for the luxurious, the addictively sweet, the treasonous, the illegal and the polluted. Yet her randhresha-8 uttama Zukra in bhava-6 enjoyed a powerfully protective Viparita Raja yoga"Sarala"a nd she was able to endure the constant pain of scoliosis and all the vicissitudes of addiction with a sense of humor. Her luxury businesses flourished due to her iconic reputation as a women who understood sensual excess (rogesha-6 uttama-Guru-10) and her immorality was exceeded only by her charity.

Unlike bhava-6, matters of vyaya bhava are not always criminal, rough, or enslaved to the 'chandala' classes.

There can be addiction to private sensuality such as extramarital affairs, a lifelong unrequited love, self-pleasuring fantasies. Bhava-6 involves the exploitation of commercial trafficking, but bhava-12 is by nature private, personal, and enclosed Bhava-12 connotes the gracious alcoholic housewife, the artist or meditation student who needs alcohol or marijuana to achieve their intuitive state, or the otherwise pleasant person who increasingly needs a fuzzy, numbing chemical shield around them in order to keep things "sweet" in their inner terrain.

Unlike the unsavory implications of a Shukra accepting malefic drishti in bhava-6, drug planets in bhava-12 usually indicate nice people with no connection to crime.

Shukra can cause addictions in any bhava.

The stronger Shukra's influence in radix or navamsha, the stronger potential for compulsive sensual behaviors.

uttama-Zukra

Ring of Fire 1932-2003 rockabilly Johnny Cash yuti Rahu

Perhaps not surprisingly, uttama-Zukra in almost any location may become a karaka for pleasure-addictions. Uttama-Zukra gains even more strength in kendra, in particular the first and 10th angles from radix lagna or from the Moon.

The super-strong Shukra may yield remarkable artistic talent and constructive output. Yet when associated with indulgent graha such as "rationalizing" (in the negative sense) nichha-Budha or the dreamlike Meena Chandra , uttama-Zukra can easily produce a very gifted alcoholic who follows a long downward path toward addiction and decline.

As the notorious daityaguru , Shukra is capable of diverting one's artistic genius from creative production into a deadening, sugary entropy. There may be a clinical addiction to sweet foods (including most carbohydrate foods) which matures into an alcohol problem.

uttama-Zukra + Chandra, when either = lord of a dushthamsha, can produce obesity and alcoholism. the native pursues excessive, emotionally-driven self-nourishment and addictive eating in search of sensual satiation through foods. (Typically accompanied by problems with a beautiful and artistic but materialistic and malnourishing mother.)

uttama-Zukra + nichha-Budha , can result in nichha-bhanga for Budha if this yoga occurs in bhava-10

but if this yoga occurs in a dushthamsha, the native suffers addiction masked by psychological denial of personal agency. (I.e., one blames the problem on others, as is typical of the nichha-Budha mind.)

Zukra-Meza

Zukra in bhava-6

Vrizchika lagna


  • Purple Rain 1958-2016 Prince yuti Shukra

Addiction to the mix of animal sexuality and either the middle-class workplace, or dens of iniquity. Actually the workplace (6) tends to become a den of iniquity, under this native's direction.

Native requires immediate fleshly satisfaction, constant novelty, and competitive excitement .

Adolescent selfishness, gets one into exploitive situations, and when the pleasure wears off, one is stuck in the servitude of debt.

QUOTATION Das commentary

Zukra-Meza-6

"Any upsurge of carnal passion or the slightest temptation towards profligacy may drive you headlong into trouble.

  • At worst you may suffer from venereal ailments

  • and end up heavily in debt.

You will not always be well spoken of.

  • Such experiences teach, though very slowly, the desirability of basic honesty in human relationships."

Zukra-Vrizava

Zukra in bhava-6

Dhanuzya lagna


Zukra-Vrizava is the karaka for the family history, banking, and stored values. When a strong benefic falls into the mahadusthamsha, the result can only be profligacy, degeneration, and poverty caused by overspending on sensual addictions.

Addiction to wine, women, and song. Or at least, wine. Luxurious sensual experiences of all kind are sought in unsavory environments full of fighting, exploitation, and disease. the native overspends on luxuries, leaving the pocketbook empty when time comes to pay the rent.

Delights in massages, sexual entertainments, seductive music and scents, the company of docile ladies. Associated with prostitution and alcohol addiction, although on one's downward spiral one will be high bred, gentle, and kind.. One will spend the family accounts, down to the last drop.

Das commentary

Zukra-Vrishabha-6

"You may be a debauch who, under affliction, incurs debt on account of profligacy and degrade the status of your family."

Zukra-Mithunaya and Zukra in bhava-6

Makara lagna


Native may have an a sensual addiction to touching, talking, and sexual encounters in the workplace. Tends to get involved with employees, office staff, house servants, service workers.

Pleasuring behavior is spliced into the schedule of work tasks. the native appears to be extremely busy. Much of the sexuality is conversational (by letter, by phone, by text-message, etc.)

Zukra-Mithuna may derive as much pleasure from a sensual telephone conversation or a pleasuring-language email message as from a physical encounter.

Thus in the proclivity toward workplace affairs under cover of volunteer service or other business communication. Sensual pleasure from a multiplicity or simultaneity of partners.

Das commentary

Zukra-Mithuna-6

"Venus increases sexuality to the point where it interferes with the rest of your life.

  • You tell lies, meet people surreptitiously, and get involved in scandals.

  • The possibility of divorce, litigation, or loss of job is high."

Zukra-Karkata and Zukra in bhava-6or Shukra in 6th-from-Chandra

Kumbha lagna


Addiction to mothering the underclass. Takes care of homely criminals, ailing servants, and the chronically bickering and sick.

One's own family home may become a hostel for the unwell.

Women in the family tend to be sickly and require one's nourishment and nursing care.

Das commentary

Zukra-Karkata-6

"You support many family members and are very religious.

  • In spite of all this, you are accused of miserliness, and are short of money,

  • get into serious fits of depression due to problems caused by female relatives ,

  • and may often dispose unwillingly of some of the family assets."

Zukra-Singha and Zukra in bhava-6 or Shukra in 6th-from-Chandra


  • "Aladdin" comedian, dramatist Robin Williams + Ketu

  • Ave Maria 1935-2007 tenor Luciano Pavarotti

Addiction to theatrical glamour in the world of exploitation, drugs, and crime.

Gets flattery and praise from domestic animals, employees and servants.

Enjoys the attentions of those in a service role, such as those laboring in the workplace. For Zukra-6-Simha, the workplace is typically oriented to entertainment and politics.

  • Ave Maria 1935-2007 tenor Luciano Pavarotti enjoyed a reputation for profligacy in particular with the ladies who served in musical-drama productions, such as the cosmetic, costume, lighting, and other theatrical service providers.

Das commentary * Zukra-Simha-6

"With Venus, your adversaries increase.

  • Many secret schemes are worked out against you.

You suffer from diseases pertaining to the urinary tract

  • and are also susceptible to venereal diseases. "

Zukra-Kanya * nichha

Zukra in bhava-6 or Shukra in 6th-from-Chandra

Mesha lagna


Addiction to argumentation and critical analysis.


QUOTATION Das commentary

Zukra-Kanya-6

"You must be careful ,

  • you may not expect comfortable living.

  • Divorce, loss of money, venereal diseases and heavy debt

are some of the factors which are likely to disturb your mind."

Zukra-Thula and Zukra in bhava-6 or Shukra-Thula in 6th-from-Chandra

Vrishabha lagna


Protestant Reformation 1483-1549 Martin Luther + uttama-Shani-yuti-Guru + Mangala-yuti-Ketu

Benefic graha in a malefic bhava gives serious trouble, usually through lack of common sense about the evil side of human nature. Shukra is strong and relationship-oriented in Thula.

For Zukra-Thula-6 the love of sweet, easy balance in the bhava of servitude spells addiction to sentimentality, sweet deals, being nice, and superficial solutions to deep problems like making a living and paying back debts.

Zukra-Thula-6 = persistently foolhardy in trusting the wrong people with one's affections. One is comfortable with and attracted to the underclass "victimology". One spends a lifetime trying to sweeten this bitter bhava with promises of love to those who only intend to exploit.

For example, the prostitute who falls in love with her clients, or the client who falls in love with the prostitute. Or the nurse who falls in love with the junkie, or the junkie who falls in love with the drug dealer.

Usually fair-complected, and attractive in countenance. Yet, found loitering in unsavory venues due to one's attraction to the victim class. Potential STD infection. Yet, Zukra-Thula-6 never surrenders the belief that sentimental love is the best medicine.

Das commentary

Zukra-Thula-6

"You may be a debauch with all the associated vices and diseases."

Zukra-Vrizchika and Zukra in bhava-6

Mithunaya lagna



Zukra-Vrizchika in 6th-from-Chandra

Addiction to tantrik sexuality, intense psychological penetration, and relationships of psychic dominance.

One is seduced by servants. Dishonor. Venereal diseases.

Pleasure from emergencies, explosions, eruption of hidden forces.

Loves the life of secrecy.

If with Rahu, a fascination with criminal worlds, and much power gained via dealing with the agents of invasive surgeries, biological weapons, or war.

Attraction * akarshana * to the criminal element, to animals and servants, to the psychology of out castes and those who live in dark places.

Zukra-6-Vrizchika apprehends oneself as a healer of the fallen. Falls in love with criminals, master-slaves, and military-police.

Very deceptive placement which leaves the native exposed to venereal diseases. May be a good position for undercover work on the vice squad, but one tends to be seduced into the evil world rather than helping to clean it up.

Das commentary

Zukra-Vrischika-6

"Your voluptuous nature and extreme indulgences combined with a lack of any sense of family obligation may lead to problems with venereal disease.

  • You also suffer from financial difficulties and may be greatly dishonored in society."

Zukra-Dhanuzya

Zukra in bhava-6 or Shukra in 6th-from-Chandra

Karkata lagna


Repeating addictive, argumentative behavior of preaching, teaching, priesthood, conducting rituals. Dysfunctional paradigm of belief. Approaches conflict with a mandate to argue about philosophical principle. Love of holy scripture finds an accusing, adversarial expression.

Pleasure derived from religious belief may may result in marital disagreement, even divorce. Attraction to exploitation, mistreatment, illness, injury, inequity finds an ideological framework.

  • POTUS-pair-16 Illinois 1818-1882 Mary Todd Lincoln + Budha + Guru + Surya. From a family that got-rich-quick via corrupt land deals (bandesha-4 in 6) and most importantly via slavery, Mary decided to oppose slavery on religious grounds thus violently alienating her wealthy family. She was punished with the loss of the luxuries that normally supported a woman of her social class, such as house servants and doctors.

Addiction to belief systems (Dhanusha). Ideology replaces religion, and religion replaces common sense.

One believes in the great upliftment (Dhanushya) of the underclass, only to be seduced into its negative argumentation and the science of victimology.

Although one may love a partner who hails from a different cultural belief system, conflict within the paradigm of belief may disturb one's inner harmony and may degrade the unity of the partnership.

  • POTUS-pair-16 Illinois 1818-1882 Mary Todd Lincoln + Budha + Guru + Surya had a large Dhanushya cluster in bhava-6 where the rulers of seven bhava can be found in the environment of conflict, illness, addiction, accusation, exploitation, injury, and crime. She lived a global-scale life (Dhanushya) during her husband's Civil War presidency. Her social behavior was adjudged as both brilliant and horrible (mainly the latter). She was remanded to an insane asylum (but escaped) and she was addicted to the commonly prescribed pain-killers of the day which were primarily mixtures of opiates with alcohol. In particular, unknowing physicians of her era addicted her and millions like her to the compound called laudanum.

In advanced nativities, a deep aesthetic pleasure via service in government or hierarchically structured conventionalized social environments

Das commentary

One may prefer the open relations between friends to the restrictive exclusivity contract of marriage.

Visionary social-philosophical thinking and highly abstract conceptual beliefs give permission for toxic excess of indulgence.

Zukra-Meena * uttama

Zukra in bhava-6 or Shukra in 6th-from-Chandra

Thula lagna


Repeating addictive behavior of dreaming, fantasy, private bedroom relationships, meditation, and prayer.

Physical beauty and musical talent are entrapped in the world of exploitation, disease, and fighting.

  • Zukra-Meena-6 indicates relationships with women of extraordinary beauty who are nevertheless envious (6)and who undermine one's marital balance.

  • Pleasure derived from clandestine relationships and activities in sanctuary may may result in marital disagreement, even divorce.

One may succumb to temptation to sell one's talent or beauty in trade for addictive substances.

For one in the husband role, indicates that the wife however beautiful is also one's enemy. Betrayal through her beauty. For one in the wife role, beware of female friends and relatives who are as lovely as oneself, yet through jealousy may cause disruption of one's marital harmony.

In advanced nativities, a deep aesthetic pleasure via service in dreamlike environments which support private prayer, reflective thought, and imagistic immersion.

Das commentary

Zukra-Meena-6

"You are extremely sensitive to the feelings of others,

a highly evolved person who will be subjected to much misunderstanding.

You will be well off as far as money is concerned,

  • comprehension of situations will be very sharp,

  • and power to tackle opponents will be adequate.

You will move in the higher echelons of society."

Zukra in bhava-12

Hearst Newspapers 1863-1951 plutocrat William Randolph Hearst

Zukra in bhava-12 suggests an astral or imaginative level of sensual addiction that functions as an 'escape' mode.

Loves sensual relationships that are conducted in private, in spaces such as sanctuaries, caves, foreign lands, or the bed-chamber. Vyaya bhava addictions originate in the private imagination, and usually do not involve a breakdown of the social contract. However these addictions do eventually erode the social identity, so that the native fades into obscurity through the entropy of the addiction.


Zukra in bhava-12 being 6th-from-7th (public alliance) a husband may be addicted to private, hidden relationships with women who are naturally playing the role of 'enemy of the public marriage'.

  • Despite his splendid talents and a prodigious literary output, As I Lay Dying 1897-1962 William Faulkner was reputed to have been highly promiscuous and a career alcoholic. His wife was also an addicted drinker.

A woman may be addicted to sensual pleasures (persons, hobbies, or behaviors) which cause animosity within her marriage.

  • UK-Duchess 1947-Camilla of Cornwall was famously involved with her "Dark Prince" for many years, causing animosity within both public marriages

Chandra-yuti-Zukra often exhibits a self-medicating, self-numbing tendency that can be associated with addictions to food, alcohol, drugs, or other behaviors that are calming (Chandra) and sweet (Shukra)
  • POTUS-pair-37 Watergate 1912-1993 Pat Ryan Nixon chain-smoked cigarettes throughout life as a stress-calmer

  • POTUS-pair-38 addictions 1918-2011 Betty Ford developed a severe addiction to painkillers and alcohol; due to a noble parivartamsha between her Chandra-yuti-Zukra and Shani-9, this addiction was (after several decades of addictive disorder) promoted into a high-level ministry of service via the development of a women-centered addictions clinic. Shani takes a long time.

Shukra with Rahu or Shukra with Ketu

Zukra-yuti-Ketu * Zukra-yuti-Rahu

Zukra-yuti-Rahu while Zukra in bhava-6* may amplify the permissive and pleasure-seeking behaviors while also magnifying the narrative of broken trust (6) disease + injury (6) accompanied by disagreement, victimization or servitude.

Zukra-yuti-Rahu + Zukra in bhava-12, in a male nativity, signals the addictive tendencies of the alliance partner.

Rahu amplifies the desire and Ketu dissolves the boundaries. With Shukra + nodes in bhava-12, the imagination gains tremendous power.

Zukra-yuti-Rahu = love relationships which break conventional barriers and challenge social taboo.

  • Ring of Fire 1932-2003 rockabilly Johnny Cash * uttama-Zukra-10 yuti Rahu. Their music catered to a religiously conservative audience who criticized divorce as a moral failure, and reviled extramarital passions as the work of the devil. Yet the very-married Cash and his equally-very-married, religiously devout fellow singer June Carter conducted a high-tension affair which culminated in two divorces-with-children, and his asking, during a public musical performance, on stage, for her hand in marriage. Zukra-Rahu-10 is very visible in its pairings and Rahu brings the tantalizingly forbidden directly into the public eye. The audience was delighted.

Zukra-Vrizava, Thula, or Meena

  • When Shukra enjoys strength by rashi, and Shukra is either amplified or boundary-dissolved by Rahu-Ketu, effects may be dramatic.


Zukra-yuti-Ketu

Depletion of vital energies and invasion by predatory spirits.

Nichha-Zukra-yuti-Rahu

Exotic, potentially exploitive, taboo-breaking, privilege-seeking involvements with women . Willing to take risks (Rahu) to help exploited women (Kanya)

  • POTUS-29 Teapot Dome 1865-1923 Warren G. Harding was a notorious philanderer but also well-liked by women for his support of women's rights. He was a primary advocate for women's right to vote. Nevertheless his presidency was nearly destroyed by a blackmail threat from a jilted former lover and mother of his love-child. Harding's wife was an ambitious divorcee which was also a taboo-breaker in those prudish days.

  • POTUS-pair-32 Learn by Living 1884-1962 Eleanor Roosevelt like Harding, Mrs. Roosevelt was a staunch supporter of women's rights and a primary figure in the successful passage of the laws which guarantee women political - but not economic (yet) equality in the USA. Her husband's liaisons as well as her own romantic relationships with women were legendary.
