Marriage sequence

Spousal Profile: Characteristics and Qualities

7th-from-Chandra provides some clues about the type of subconscious expectations which One may bring into The marriage sequence of the current lifetime, based on past-life agreement with the designated Mate(s).

The bhava which = 7th-from-Chandra may have numerous characteristics such as the basic purpose of the bhava, the qualities of its ruler and occupants, drishti upon the sthana, etc.

The characteristics of the core partnership can also be noticed in business partners and others with whom one forms important alliances and agreements.

For a second marriage, read the characteristics of the union from 2nd-from-Soma.

For a third lifepartnership, read the characteristics of the union from 9th-from-Soma.

Fourth marriage, read the characteristics of the union from 4th-from-Soma.

And so on, counting eight houses forward from the previous marriage. (5th marriage = 11th-from; 6th marriage = 6th-from, 7th marriage = 1st-from...)

psycho-emotional relationships based on ancient memory of:

  • marriage and partnership, promises

  • sexual relationships

  • Advising, consulting, and peer relationships - physician, attorney

  • Agreements, negotiations, andpower to reach agreement in the law courts

  • scales and balances, exchanges and contracts

  • physical body's external sexual pleasure organs


For male-female partnerships, the 7th-from angle resembles Zukra thus is a fairly easy placement for the feminine harmonizing energy. However the 7th-from angle is less suitable for Ravi-like male self-centered energy. Therefore the situation is different for male vs female perspectives, and it is different between the first lifepartnership vs second lifepartnership for the female.


From the viewpoint of the Husband :

  • Zukra in 7th from Chandra = 7th-from characteristics in the emotional relationship to the wife(s)

pitrikaraka Surya in 7th-from-Chandra

***

The partner is often a center-stage personality, requiring attention and applause. Selfishness to the point of narcissism and a propensity for romantic drama may be attributes of the spouse.

  • the wife of Ford Motor Co. 1863-1947 Henry Ford was a demonstratively (Surya) pious churchwoman very publicly engaged in charitable activism (11). Surya-yuti-Budha = attention-and-applause roles whereas Budha rules Ford's 1-10 public dignity and personal identity. Clara had a powerful social network, and while he had a tendency to put his foot in his mouth, she helped him to build and protect his reputation (10).

The life-partnership may affect the native adversely, since Surya is the enemy of yuvati-karaka Zukra.

  • de Mundi Systemate 1643-1727 Isaac Newton * Budha-yuti-Surya-Dhanushya in 7th-from-Chandra. Newton was a gay man who never married. He had one well-known multi-year relationship with a beautiful, dramatic young Dutch scientist who -- in a gambit to gain attention -- played romantic games with Newton's heart. Newton's blond paramour became flamboyantly involved with another European scientist, and in classic Surya style enflamed the competition between the suitors to increase flattery upon himself. Angry and heartbroken, after years of trysts and sharing pledges by-letter, Newton exited the relationship. If he took another partner at a later time, the public never knew.

  • Thriller 1958-2009 Michael J. Jackson + Budha * first marriage to the famous daughter of Heartbreak Hotel 1935-1977 Elvis Presley and stage-performing musician Lights Out 1968- singer Lisa Marie Presley

Mangala in 7th-from-Chandra * Chandra-Mangala yoga

***

Combination particularly beneficial for material wealth and a dynamically moving partnership pattern.

The restless, competitive life-mate may need a lifestyle of nearly constant movement in pursuit of the mate's own particular quest for championship.

The mate is a winner, an athlete, a noble competitor, a tireless promoter. The mate may champion a theme, an idea, a message, a product, or other variety of outward expression.

There is a range of opinion as to whether this placement constitutes Kuja Dosha. Particularly when Mangala-12, Mangala-1, and Mangala-4 there is a critical need for range and space since the spouse is a competitive person and from the position of 7th-from-Chandra Mangala may been perceived to attack the Chandra emotions.

Generally the couple will need SPACE.

  • Prodigals 1920-2007 Ruth Bell Graham married Hour of Decision 1918- Rev. Billy Graham in 1943, after they had both graduated from Wheaton College in Illinois. Their early marriage years involved shared living arrangements and five children were produced. But when Rev. Graham's radio-television preaching career escalated due to the funding infusion from San Francisco Examiner 1863-1951 plutocrat William Randolph Hearst, the demands of his new celebrity included long separations due to touring schedules. For the core decades of the marriage, the couple saw each other only when his travels allowed.

Tendency for the marriage to contain more male-oriented environment. Spouse often prefers socializing with more masculine martial or sporting types.

  • POTUS-pair-38 Addiction Recovery 1918-2011 Betty Ford 's husband Gerald Ford worked in an intensely male-dominated political-relationship environment serving 12 Congressional terms (24 years) in USA mid-century; her interactions (mainly entertaining, Simha) naturally focused on this clientele

The native and the mate may persist compatibly in the relationship depending on other factors particularly the rashi of Kuja and other graha-yuti-Mangala that may temper the somewhat combative and dominating nature of muscular-moving Mangala.

  • How Will I Know 1963-2012 Whitney Houston had Kanya-Mangala-12 in 7th-from-Revati Chandra yuti Guru. She married a musical performer who competed with her for dominance in artistic recognition. The abusive, aggressive, and addictive nature of the partnership was documented in the press .

Physical space is a premium requirement for longevity in the partnership; otherwise the mate may feel caged and attack the native. Therefore arrangements which offer regular travel for the mate, regular physical exercise for the mate, and plenty of physical space for the mate are the most helpful in this sort of relationship.

  • Golf 1975- champion Tiger Woods married a fashion model from a distant land (7th-from-Chandra = 12) who famously clobbered him with a golf club during a marital dispute.

Budha in 7th-from-Chandra

***

Professor Budha is delivering instruction in the relationship-focused classroom 7th-from-Chandra. Budha provides one, single descriptive element within a broader profile of a core security-stability relationship. Often Budha has companion Graha and the companion graha must be evaluated.

Budha is a transmitter-receiver. He possesses a relatively minimal agenda that is unique to Himself; rather, His assignment is to communicate the curricular instructions of the other Professors with articulate, descriptive accuracy. The pair are usually mentally compatible. They tend to think and converse in a similar way and be interested in similar subjects.

Results of Budha in classroom 7th-from-Chandra naturally must depend on the effects of any graha yuti-Budha. Budha is impressionable and youthful, quickly adapting His vocabulary and grammar to the message of the moment, therefore results also depend upon Parashari drishti received from other graha into Budha, the usual characteristics of Budha's bhava, and the agenda of Budha's planetary ruler.

Qualities of analytical, instructional, descriptive, documenting, explanatory mentalism, mercurial communications, gesturing, chattiness, and coupling are characteristic of Budha. The primary partnership often displays qualities of sibling-ensemble alignment; the pair are part of a cohort of a similarly communicating entourage. They share both a message and a format for message delivery.

Budha's rashi can provide additional characterization of the mental sharing inherent in the relationship.

  • POTUS-31-pair Girl Scouts 1874-1944 Lou Henry Hoover and her husband POTUS-31 Challenge to Liberty 1874-1964 Herbert Hoover were intellectual equals. Among their many Budha-ized shared interests, this married couple co-wrote and co-translated numerous scientific books. Her Budha-Kumbha + Budha in bhava-9 in 7th-from-Chandra suggests a mentally compatible sibling-affinity bond that provided them with mentally engaging topics upon which to converse. Despite the misogynistic customs of the era which would generally deny that a wife could match her husband's mental abilities, Herbert Hoover made no secret of the fact that his wife was his daily adviser and writing partner.
  • POTUS-pair-16 Illinois 1818-1882 Mary Todd Lincoln 's impulsive Arudra Chandra set the foundation for her marriage experience. Her husband was certainly a complex man, which can be seen in the Guru-Zukra-Budha-Surya cluster that resides in her 7th-from-Chandra. This cluster represents her husband. They formed a complex partnership that promoted them from rural insignificance to roles of lasting national fame. POTUS-16 Emancipation 1809-1865 Abraham Lincoln remains, along with George Washington, the best-known president.

  • Budha represents her husband's careers as a shopkeeper and an attorney. Before his storied ascent to POTUS-16, Lincoln operated a number of businesses (3), including circuit-riding judge-attorney (3 circuits) bartender (3) shopkeeper (3) and writing of deeds, titles, and judgments.

Generally, the mate-partner exhibits some Budha-type behaviors such as shop-keeping, writing, calculations, planning, analysis, or communications. Partners need not be marital spouses; partners can also be emotionally trusted peers who share mutually-agreed activities with the native.

  • Flossie Harding, the wife of POTUS-29 Teapot Dome 1865-1923 Warren G. Harding was the daughter of a newspaperman and herself an accomplished businesswoman. The complexity of their relationship is demonstrated via Budha-Surya-Mangala-Shani all located in his 7th-from-Chandra-6. Flossie's management of his career began with her skillful provisioning of journalistic articles that favored her husband, delivered to regional newspapers always hungry for copy. It ended with her instructing (Budha) his secretaries to burn all of his personal and professional papers immediately after his untimely death. As a result of Flossie's management style, very little documentation survives from Harding's presidency and many questions about his personal life remain unanswered. (Shani-yuti-Budha)

Despite a persistent communicative element within the relationships, if the graha in 7th-from-Chandra are uncomfortable, then the relationship itself may suffer from the characteristics disabilities of the afflicted graha.

  • POTUS-06 American System 1767-1868 John Quincy Adams * endured a challenging marriage situation about which he complained incessantly in his correspondence with colleagues and family members. His 7th-from-Chandra contains nichha Mangala-Karkata-Azlesa yuti Ketu-Karkata yuti Budha-Karkata-Azlesa provided a dual challenge in his marriage-alliance emotional support configuration. JQA's experience of the spouse involved apathetic, wandering Ketu (a required consequence of his ambitious mother Chandra-yuti-Rahu) His spouse also expressed his own passive-aggressive nichha Mangala-Karkata. POTUS-pair-06 1775-1852 Louisa Johnson Adams suffered many ailments both psycho-emotional and physical, and the medical treatments of the era were unsuccessful. JQA wrote that his marriage choice was the greatest mistake of his life.

Brihaspati is a preacher-teacher. The Devaguru possesses a prominently generous, charitable, inclusive, wide-scope, doctrinal, theoretical, theological, philosophical agenda that is unique to Himself among all of the graha. Professor Guruva's assignment is to spread the principles of compassionate understanding by expanding the scope of awareness.

When Guru occupies 7th-from-Chandra, the pair are usually doctrinally compatible. in the sense that they share a similar ideological framework for understanding the world around them. They tend to hold similar beliefs, often a common catechism, and have a comparably equivalent scope of wisdom. They see about the same-sized portion of the world.

Results of Guru in classroom 7th-from-Chandra naturally must depend on the effects of any graha yuti-Guru. Brihas-pati is broad-minded and inclusive, and He is generally concerned with matters of higher teaching such as sacred doctrine, theoretical science, and humanistic philosophy.

Guru's results also depend upon Parashari drishti received from other graha into Guru, the usual characteristics of Guru's bhava, and the agenda of Devaguru's planetary ruler. Depending on the specific characteristics of Guru, the mate may have either dominant or muted behaviors of the agency of guidance such as preaching and teaching.

Guru in 7th-from-Chandra is one of the profile elements that can contribute to a prognosis for multiple lifemates. However all of the mates are likely to demonstrate the broader Guru behaviors of globalism and philosophical viewpoint.


In the nativity of a wife-figure, Guru in 7th from Chandra = 7th-from characteristics in the emotional relationship to the first husband

  • Telepathy 1880-1949 Alice Bailey * first husband was an ordained Anglican priest, and second husband was a theosophy teacher

  • UK-Queen 1926- Elizabeth-2 * nichha-Guru + uttama-Mangala

  • Lights Out 1968- singer Lisa Marie Presley

  • UK-Princess Royal 1950- Anne Laurence * indeed two marriages, but her Chandra with Budha-yuti-Shani rather overwhelms a Shani (duty) ruled Kumbha-Guru-5.

  • Iran-Shahani 1932-2001 Soraya Esfandiari Bakhtiari

  • Zorro 1969- drama-commerce Catherine Zeta Jones * Guru-Kanya + Surya + uttama-Budha

  • POTUS-pair-34 Military Families 1896-1979 Mamie Doud Eisenhower * first husband was a teacher of military history and science (during a lifetime military career, he did not enter direct combat)


Guru in 7th-from-Chandra is often an indicator of multiple emotionally-attached alliances. However, it is important to be able to distinguish between publically legitimate marriages which are sanctified by the state's authority (Shani) versus the emotionally defined and motivated connections to other partners that may develop in addition to the legal marriage contract.

  • Memories Dreams Reflections 1875-1961 Carl Jung had Guru-Thula in bhava-9 seventh from his Chandra-Bharani-3. Guru is ruled by his matching, pairing Mithunaya Zukra-yuti-Budha. Jung formed a series of secondary alliances (Zukra) with students (Budha) who soon became skilled practitioners and colleagues. Yet Zukra (wife-1) = so gracious, flexible, and communicative that the first marriage was sustained until her death.

Guru-Meena or Guru-Dhanushya in 7th-from-Chandra often shows a mate who takes the social role of philosopher, theorist, ideologue, pandit, proselyte, bishop, presbyter, priest.

  • the first husband of Telepathy 1880-1949 Alice Bailey was an Anglican Priest. She met her first husband while she preached as a Christian missionary in India (Rahu-9 preaching) Her Guru-12 shows the cultural distance between her and her husband, who hailed from a different social class and effectively came from a "distant world" to Mrs. Evans-Bailey. He was said to have been a brilliant theology student and a capable liturgist, but he suffered from severe mental illness and being so handicapped, did not provide financially for their family.

Bond between female and her first husband is very stable, with husband-1 quite committed to enduring partnership and female in appreciation and satisfaction with that commitment.

Material conditions which derive from the bhava-lordships and other qualities of Guru may or may not be challenging, but emotionally the bond with the first husband is appreciable.

This position is not a guarantee of life-long marriage, and in fact ceteris paribus Guru in 7th from Chandra is an indicator of multiple partners similar to Guru residing in yuvati bhava-7.

However even in situations of divorce or separation, one's trusting friendship with the first partner will offer a lifetime support.

For a wife's chart, Guru in 7th from Chandra indicates that helpful goodwill between the spouses assists in co-parenting after divorce

Zukra in 7th-from-Chandra

***

Zukra in 7th-from-Chandra =

Although Chandra has no enemies, Zukra does have enemies. Zukra's agenda focuses on the development of polarity and partnership, and thus Zukra harbors animosity toward Chandra's non-partnering portfolio.

Chandra emphasizes parenting, caretaking, nourishment and sheltering. Chandra relationships are not equal and cannot become truly equal: Somana ensures that parents are not partners, but rather parents are a special, honored, privileged provider of care and shelter.

The opposition creates a tension in the marriage between parenting protective unequal affections versus the attraction * akarshana * of equals. One of the partners focuses on parenting, maintaining safety, home-steading and the other partner is concerned with attractiveness, negotiations, bargaining, and terms of agreement.

In the case of Shani-yuti-Zukra in 7th-from-Chandra, the power of social-institutional lawfulness and duty are greatly emphasized within the marriage contract. One tends to marry a beautiful, gracious, and harmony-seeking spouse, but at the same time this lovely spouse is burdened with a heavy schedule of social obligations and public responsibilities.

  • POTUS-38 Time to Heal 1913-2006 Gerald R. Ford had lagnesha-Chandra-5 politics. President Ford enjoyed an enduring "two-person career" based in lifelong anchoring of his career from a robustly dutiful and socially structured Shani-yuti-Zukra-11 in his 7th-from-Chandra-5 . His wife POTUS-pair-38 Addiction Recovery 1918-2011 Betty Bloomer Ford was (eventually - Shani) so highly respected for her work with addictions recovery that her reputation exceeded his.

Shani in 7th-from-Chandra

***

Shani in 7th-from-Chandra suggests a long delay in finalizing the marriage agreement, or a marriage partner who is often living separately, and also a marriage to one elder to oneself either by chronological age or by social seniority (such as a person with a more respected professional rank). Typically the spouse is born into a lower social station; however spouses relative social rank could be higher than the native if Shani occupies uttama-amza.

  • Pucci Prints 1914-1992 Emilio Pucci married at age 45 (durokaraka-Shani = delay). His wife Baronessa Cristina Nannini di Casabianca carried a respected title indicating an old social rank (Shani).

  • General Electric CEO 1935- Jack Welch lived separately from his first wife during most of their marriage, purportedly due to his business responsibilities. It was said that he returned home so very infrequently that his four children barely knew him. His Chandra-7 also indicates a need to marry the type of partner who is primarily dedicated to parenting, and perhaps only secondarily invested in the peer relationship between the parents.

The life-partner may carry unusually heavy responsibilities from their own background which the native then acquires as a feature of the marriage.

  • POTUS-29 Teapot Dome 1865-1923 Warren G. Harding married Flossie Kling, who was five years his senior. She had a young son from her first marriage for whom Harding accepted parental responsibility.

  • USA-Congress 1943- Newt Gingrich on his 19th birthday married his high-school math teacher. She was 26, seven years his senior.

Occasionally Shani durokaraka may help to negate marriage completely, in order that one may be effectively "married" to a governance task or to some obligation to maintain the social order. Usually Shani delays but He does not deny.

In order for Shani to become an agent of marriage-denial, there must be other agents in the nativity that would employ Shani's legitimizing and austerity-promoting behaviors to secure a celibate status.

  • 14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso was ordained in early life as a celibate Gelugpa lama. Thus free of family concerns, he was able to dedicate himself to the preservation and maintenance (Shani) of Tibetan culture in exile. In addition to residing in 7th-from-Chandra, Shani also occupies a high state of dignity dig-bala in Kumbha-7 showing a community (Kumbha) leadership duty roster while Ketu-yuti-Budha rules navamsha-1 indicating detachment from psycho-emotional partnerships.

  • Dialogue 1347-1380 St. Catherine of Siena * Shani-yuti-Ketu. A celibate nun in an era when unmarried women were often viciously harmed, she was able to devote herself to the construction of a religious order for women which still exists today, 700 years after she structured it (Shani durokaraka). For Saint Catherine, yuvatipati Chandra-yuti-Rahu occupies bhava-8, signaling a fascinating (Rahu) version of widowhood.

The mother's experience of marriage may be exceptionally anti-innovative, conservative, and inflexible as indicated by rigid Shani in 7th-from-matrikaraka-Chandra. The parents generally hold an expectation that the native will conduct the type of marriage alliance which maintains the social order.

Much depends upon the bhava occupied by Chandra and Shani as well as any yuti-graha. Also Shani's significations of age, seniority, and responsibility are increased when Shani occupies Makara or Kumbha, or when Chandra-Makara enjoys parivartamsha with Shani-Karkata.


From the viewpoint of the wife:

Shani in 7th from Chandra = 7th-from characteristics in the emotional relationship to the second husband

7th-from-Chandra = mutual aspect

Chandra accepts Shani's weaker 7th-angle graha-drishti

  • Beholden to the attorneys, partners and advisers

Either by their presence or by their absence

The Partner (7) and the emotional, empathetic Self (Chandra) become the primary instructional agents in a lawful, karmic struggle to transform emotional ignorance into emotional wisdom.

Until Shani matures at age 36, Vimshottari bhukti periods of Shani may be particularly challenging within emotional relationships.

One may experience polarization (7) between public accomplishment (Shani) and private satisfaction (Chandra).

Emotional marriage obligation which presents a significant learning curve for the incarnation. The karma of bargaining and negotiating with a difficult, intractable, or authoritarian partner.

  • 14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso and his practice-partner = the Chinese government oppressors

  • The first wife of Sherlock Holmes 1859-1930 Arthur Conan Doyle * (Chandra-3 parivartamsha Shani-9) was diagnosed with terminal tuberculosis and given only months to live. However she lingered on (Shani) in frail health but conscious, for nearly ten years. C-D began a second relationship which had to remain hidden due to social convention but also concern for wife-1. Also Chandra-Shravana deeply concerned with public reputation.

First marriage may be very demanding due to the public responsibilities and/or rigidly controlling personality of the spouse. It may be easier to forego marriage entirely and rather develop a highly disciplined relationship to the ishta-devata .

If marriage is undertaken, Shani in the 7th-from angle acquires a variety of dig-bala * dignity which supports patience and endurance especially if the partner is elder or senior in professional dignity.

  • USA-Congress 1943- Newt Gingrich married his high school teacher, who was seven years his elder

  • France-Emperor 1769-1821 Napoleon Bonaparte married Josephine in 1796. She was widowed, six years elder and politically more experienced.

It takes the better part of a lifetime to understand one's own emotional needs and expectations within a partnership, and to acquire the requisite emotional maturity to function as an equal partner in respect to another person's emotional expectations.

Mutual aspect of Shani-Soma . Shani casts His 7th-dristhi upon Chandra.

Shani enforces law-and-order upon the emotional needs (Soma). Depending on drishti to Chandra, the mother may be conservative and somewhat fearful (Shani) which can overemphasize the need for stability and social achievement.


Implications of durakaraka Shani's rulerships: Shani ensures chronicity and persistence.

  • POTUS-38 Time to Heal 1913-2006 Gerald R. Ford * wife POTUS-pair-38 Addiction Recovery 1918-2011 Betty Ford was a loyal and steadfast mate who staunchly and skillfully supported her husband's career via fundraising social networking parties. Yet the marriage suffered a long-lasting challenge via Mrs. Ford's attempts to self-medicate the stress of the responsibilities with drug addiction and bulimia. Although Mrs. Ford's Zukra-Chandra-4 parivartamsha Shani-9 shows her eventual mastery of emotional indulgence, his Shani-yuti-Zukra in 7th-from-Chandra also indicates the burden of spousal conditions within the marriage due to Shani being his ever-challenging randhresha.

Rahu in 7th-from-Chandra *

can only occur in nativities containing Chandra-yuti-Ketu

Public Figures


***

  • Venezuela-Pres 1954-2013 Hugo R. Chavez + Budha + Guru

  • Way of Zen 1915-1973 radio philosopher Alan Watts + Guru

  • Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt + Budha + Kuja + Surya

  • Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler + Guru

  • Celebrity 1960-1999 publisher JFK-Jr

When Professor Rahu delivers His curriculum in classroom 7th-from-Chandra, His lessons focus on the experience of bonding with a fascinating mate. The partner, and the pattern of partnership where there are multiple partners, is characterized by the mate's tendency to be over-reaching, extraordinary, rule-challenging, often mesmerizing, ambitious, and risk-encouraging.

Shani is the rule-maker and Rahu is the rule-breaker. Although Rahuvan is not inherently prone to crime or danger, nevertheless it is Rahu's nature to be always looking for routes toward privilege and success that are not constrained by social conventions and customs.

Rahu's character is distinctively instrumentalist, opportunistic, and expedient. Therefore the lifemate may share with the native pronounced qualities of risk-taking and unconventional approach, including a disregard for normalized social behaviors in marriage. Rahu partners often hail from a different race, class, religion, gene pool, or social background than the native. The native and the partner often share the excitement of adventure and unusual means of achieving social importance.

The native is often emotionally apathetic or suffers sensitivity regarding abandonment, due to one's own Chandra-yuti-Ketu.

As always, Rahu's bhava and its ruler are definitive.

The Rahu-7 mate often hails from a distinctively different social-ethnic-national-economic-doctrinal background. The bhava occupied by Rahu is critically important for predicting the impact of this Mix-Master, aspiring-to-ascend mate upon the fortunes of the native. Rahu-7 is not always proof of a brief marriage, but Rahu personalities are rule-breakers and marriage is a rule-based contract. Therefore containing the Rahu-mate into a conventional marriage contract may pose a significant challenge.

  • After a whirlwind romance lasting only a few months (Rahu) Oops 1981- entertainer Britney Spears married Oops-pair 1978- Kevin Federline , an ambitious, charismatic dancer and father of two. His radical Rahu-Karkata (parenting) contacts her natal Rahu-Ketu axis in both D-1 and D-7, and she had entered Rahu-Zukra period where Zukra-yuti-Chandra-yuti-Ketu. Also, Zukra the yuvati-karaka is a pitri-promoter ruling 5th-from-Chandra. Her Rahu-Ketu axis was thus greatly overstimulated at the time of the unlikely marriage-then-children. Often pilloried by the press as an impostor and fraud (Rahu) Mr. Federline hailed from a lower socio-economic stratum while Ms. Spears was at the time a multi-millions annual earner via her entertainment and commercial operations.

Importantly, additional graha which might join the Chandra-yuti-Ketu pair, and any additional graha which might share a rashi with Professor Rahu, can significantly alter the predicted outcomes. The two bhava on the Rahu-Ketu axis are also important predictors.

Professor Ketu having taken up a position of teaching in the classroom of 7th-from-Chandra, Professor Ketu-the-Disperser is not inherently an indicator of divorce, unless there are numerous additional supporting factors pointing in the direction of a legal split of the union.

Rather, the signification may be a perception of the ineffability of the character of the spouse, who may seem disconnected or disoriented in some way. It may be that the spouse is a frequent traveller who is rarely engaged in the union. Perhaps the spouse chooses to enter meditative seclusion.

Although the native is largely detached from the drama of the spouse's life, there is never a dull moment in these relationships. The challenges tend to focus upon cultural and religious differences between the partners.

  • Moonies 1920-2012 Rev. Sun Myung Moon was first married in 1945. His wife Sun-kil Choi was a passionate believer in Christian doctrine which was then an exotic foreign faith (Rahu). While married to his first wife, Rev. Moon developed his first group of churches and composed the foundational scripture of his ministry "The Divine Principle".

Rahu-Ketu share the rashi axis of Chandra = Emotional volatility, psychic intensity. Emotionally scattered, the feelings may not be successfully connected to each other

If Rahu occupies 7th from Chandra then automatically Chandra-yuti-Ketu.

Chandra-yuti-Ketu suggests that the mother is dispersed, disregarding, distanced, not available. It might be her work schedule, her religious or marital commitments, her social life, or her medical issues, but whatever the reason this mother is not fully available to deliver unconditional love to the child.


Rahu in 7th-from-Chandra indicates a mother who is more fascinated by and engaged with her partners, particularly the husband (s), whom the mother perceives as crucial launching pads for her personal self-elevation and gain of privilege.

The native too may attempt to "marry up" in some fashion. Males may become fascinated by rather exotic, typically very beautiful., women; females by men who seem to radiate extraordinary privilege and power.

  • Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt married two internationally famous actress-models

Chandra afflicted by Ketu produces emotionally detached witness behavior. One may be a keen observer of human life, but the emotional attitude is not sentimental.

In both personal and professional relationships, Chandra-Ketu can often successfully utilize the emotionally disconnected witness function. This yoga enables one to operate quietly but successfully in bizarre, lawless, or inhumane environments.

The Rahu mate expresses public face of the partnership. Rahu's material ambition generally attracts an interesting, risk-positive, self-promoting mate who understands that the partnership is the best platform upon which to launch the mate's own quest for higher privilege.


Unless there are compensating graha in the same bhava with the Chandra-Ketu pair, one with Rahu in 7th-from-Soma may have been traumatized in some unremembered (Ketu) fashion and as an adult can seem unfamiliar with basic compassion.

When pressed for involuntary, instinctive human emotional response, Chandra +Ketu often has nothing to say.

There are many exceptions caused by favorable graha yuti Ketu-Soma:

  • Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt for example has five graha in the Chandra-Ketu cluster

  • Green Mile 1947- horror-fiction Stephen King 's detached lagnesha Chandra-yuti-Ketu is made much more generous and understanding via its conjunction with Guru in creative, charismatic bhava-5

The Rahu mate assumes role of emotional advocate, attorney, representative who acts with ambitious demonstrative energy on behalf of the native.

The first life-partnership is often a high-contrast relationship with one high-drama mate (the Rahu mate) and one low-engagement mate (the native).

The social outcome of any legal union (marriage or business contract) depends on a number of factors, not the least of which is any graha yuti Rahu. Also of top predictive importance is the condition of bhava-7 counted from lagna.


Chandra-yuti-Ketu = emotionally withdrawn and passive by character. One is more comfortable (Chandra) in the disengaged Witness role.

  • Agreement-crafting style ranges from neutral to passive-aggressive."Whatever you want to do, honey."

  • Chandra-yuti-Ketu tends to attract mates who have an ambitious life agenda.

The mate indicated by Rahu in 7th-from-Soma tends toward hyper-engagement in the relationship, because the union becomes a highly expedient platform to facilitate the mate's own quest for privilege.

As a result the Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-7-mate tends to have a more vivid, charismatic personality when compared to the native.

  • The Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-7-mate assumes the public face of the relationship. Meanwhile, Chandra-yuti-Ketu may seem dissatisfied, withholding affection, and uncommitted to the present union while unable to generate alternatives.

  • Chandra-yuti-Ketu tends to accept default conditions. Chandra-yuti-Ketu is rarely the instigator of a separation. In divorce-permitting cultures, it will be the Rahu-partner who officially files for divorce.

  • Re: interpersonal unions, Chandra-yuti-Ketu is better suited to the"living together" model that does not require a legal contract. If there is legal contract such as a business partnership or a state-certified marriage, the native's passive emotional attitude may permit a personal and professional toy persist for decades without significant engagement.

  • Chandra-yuti-Ketu generally appreciates and accepts the agenda of the Rahu mate. The downside: when and if, for their own opportunistic Rahu-reasons, this mate decides to abandon the partnership, Chandra-yuti-Ketu is powerless to prevent it.

  • In such an event, Chandra-yuti-Ketu tends to accepts the mate's Rahu-urgent decision as "inevitable" (Ketu). Chandra-yuti-Ketu is rarely pro-active in agreement maintenance behaviors. When a break-up threatens in personal or professional partnership, Chandra-yuti-Ketu does not try to prevent it.

  • Additional graha yuti Rahu may signal complicated behavioral excesses. E.g., Rahu + multiplier Guru in 7th-from-Soma indicates more than one mate. (Rahu + Guru in bhava-7 radix indicates multiple life-mates also.)

  • Yet in general, Rahu in 7th-from-Soma tends to be more significantly invested in the relationship than the native.

  • One experiences the deepest challenge to cultural norms through the possessive behavior of The Other who expresses a desire to possess one, psycho-emotionally.

  • Man with Rahu in 7th-from-Chandra is attracted to exotic, dramatic and desirous women. Male may be at the emotional mercy of females.

The first marriage, for either gender, is often emotionally impulsive or characterized by opportunistic motivation.

  • Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt * a highly complex group of graha with Chandra indicate a complex emotional constitution. Rahu-8 in 7th-from-Chandra signals opportunistic elements in the first marriage arrangement.

  • Banker to the Poor 1940- microcredit Muhammad Yunus hailed from modest circumstances of his impoverished birthland of Bangla-desha. His first marriage was to a Russian émigré graduate student earning her doctorate in literature at a USA university. Rahu suggests a first marriage to partner of exotic racial, religious, or cultural background (exotic relative to the native). In his autobiography, Professor Yunus recounts how he delayed and resisted the marriage requests of his girlfriend, knowing that he intended to return to Bangladesh where she would be in very unfamiliar and perhaps hostile circumstances. However in a moment of impulse, he suddenly said yes, and the marriage endured for 10 years.

Caution to Chandra-Ketu natives seeking legal marriage in a period of Rahu. Consider waiting to make a sensible decision, until the "high tide" of Rahu period has subsided.

7th-from-Chandra is a maraka position; spouse may be one's partner in death


Chandra-yuti-Ketu typically indicates an emotionally disengaged personality . One prefers to assume the emotional stance of the Witness (Ketu). One responds to energized situations with whatever protocols of behavior may arise from other graha. For example, Mangala would determine one's habitual response to physical aggression while Professor Shani would mandate one's normal emotional response to social-legal structures.

One element which is typically missing from the emotional repertoire is any pronounced emotional need to draw security from an outside source, such as a partner. The native is emotionally dispersed, somewhat ungrounded via the typical roots through family and place of settlement, and often clairsentient.

These natives are not always beholden to the social mandate to secure their partnerships via the vow of marriage promise. One may also (depending on graha involved) enjoy numerous partnerships with flamboyant or highly expeditious partners.

  • My Inventions 1856-1943 Nikola Tesla had Chandra-yuti-Ketu yuti Mangala, which created a significant Kuja Dosha for Tesla. had no known human intimate partnerships. However he was dramatically involved in a number of high-profile business partners. Notable among these difficult alliances was his confrontational and accusing relationship with his one-time collaborator and soon enemy, General Electric 1847-1931 Thomas Edison.

Professor Ketu teaching in the classroom of 7th-from-Chandra tends to provide lessons on the particulate, dispersed, anti-form nature of the reality behind the reality.

In fact, life has no inherent meaning or cohesion. Whatever meaning is perceived is being projected and applied by the unfoldment of the memories of the native. Professor Ketu makes this dharma abundantly clear by providing partners (particularly the first avowed life partner) who drift, shift, migrate, and nebulize.

Graha yuti Ketu or graha yuti Rahu can significantly alter the outcome. Also, the two bhava anchoring the Rahu-Ketu axis are important predictors.

Having taken up a position of teaching in the classroom of 7th-from-Chandra, Professor Ketu is not particularly an indicator of divorce, unless there are numerous additional supporting factors pointing in the direction of a legal split of the union. Rather, the signification may be a perception of the ineffability of the character of the spouse, who may seem disconnected or disoriented in some way. It may be that the spouse is a frequent traveller who is rarely engaged in the union. Perhaps the spouse chooses to enter meditative seclusion.

Most likely the strongly emotionalized and often charismatic personality of Chandra-yuti-Rahu yoga has grown accustomed (Chandra) to taking risks (Rahu). Due to their fascinating (Rahu) demeanor, Chandra-yuti-Rahu nativities may also have become accustomed to a habit of receiving the soothing attentions of others.

One tends to be a vibrant person with exciting, ambitious levels of life-engagement. The spouse tends to be more retiring. Depending on features of Ketu, the retiring behaviors may extend to being disinterested or dissolved. There may develop a narrative of abandonment in primary relationships.

  • POTUS-01 American Revolution 1732-1799 George Washington was a powerfully charismatic man. He was very tall, broadly built, intelligent, and handsome * uttama-Zukra-yuti-Shani-1. Washington was implicitly trusted by the men under his military command. Despite mutiny and treason his armies remained viable in desperate circumstances including fearsome discomfort from winter cold and damp, starvation, and disease. He was unanimously chosen by his elite peers to lead the newborn United States of America.

  • However, George was not lucky in love. Zukra-1= the challenging bhratrupathi-3 + randhresha-8 for his Meena radical lagna. Under pressure from her father, the love of George's life married another suitor. George carried a torch for this woman for the remainder of his life. Abandoned (Ketu) by his great love, George married a financially privileged widow-with-children plantation owner named Martha Dandridge Custis. George and Martha were steady friends and business partners. He accepted the role of step-father to her young children, except that he was not often home (Ketu-4). Martha preferred to stay at home (wife 7th-from-Chandra-10, home-based partner) She oversaw George's plantations as well as her own. (Ketu-4 home base, agriculture, roots of the place of settlement).
  • Martha stayed near her slave-labor plantations and tended to the ongoing commercial task of selling her tobacco crops (7th-from-Chandra = Mithunaya sales). George travelled frequently throughout the colonies for military, commercial, and governance duties.

Gaja-kesari Yoga

Quotation from from B.V. Raman, Three Hundred Important Combinations.

"Definition.

If Jupiter is in a kendra from the Moon the combination goes under the name Gaja Kesari.


Results.

  • Many relations,
  • polite and generous,
  • builder of villages and towns or magistrate over them;
  • will have a lasting reputation even long after death.

Remarks.

Here as well as elsewhere, great difference in the enjoyment of results should be pronounced.

The original writers say that the person born in this yoga will build villages and towns. A literal interpretation of the results leads one nowhere. They have to be adapted to suit modern conditions and climes.

One born in this yoga may become a member of Municipality and engineer or if the yoga is really powerful, a mayor. The results ascribed to a yoga are subject to qualification or modification according as the yoga-karakas are strong or weak.

There are magistrates from the village to the district with different powers. From a builder of a small shrine or choultry to the builder of a large and rich temple there is much difference.

Combinations are given but the results of the same conjunction will vary with the strength of the planets, bhavas and the constellations."

"Love is always patient and kind; it is never jealous;

love is never boastful or conceited;

it is never rude or selfish;

it does not take offense, and is not resentful.

Love takes no pleasure in other people's sins but delights in the truth;

it is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes.

Love does not come to an end."
