On the pretext of needing to provide comfort and security (Chandra) to others, the Vrischika Chandra may use emotional strategies of non-disclosure, secrecy, or camouflage.

There are three nakshatra types of hidden operations within Vrischika.

  1. Chandra in Visaka-pada-4 may use this habit of concealment to further its goal of expanding wisdom (Guru) via the impact of emotional shock.

  2. Anuradha-Chandra may use this cover-up habit to further its goal of limiting (Shani) the impact of dangerous threats via emotional damage control.

  3. Jyeztha-Chandra may use this habit of strategic screening to further its goal of delivering emotionally cutting, sharply worded messages. Since mentalized Professor Budha rules the obscured 8th-from-Chandra, Jyeztha tends to produce the most clever disguises.

Within the 30 degree range occupied by * Chandra-Vrischika,

Shani-ruled Chandra in Anuradha * comforted by resistance to danger * protectors against preventable damage, guardians of customary weapons, defensive invasions, regulated explosions

pada 1-2-3-4 signifies an emotional impetus toward rigorously structured bureaucratic action that steadily climbs the hierarchy

Shani-ruled Anu-radha (after the storm) institutionalizes, structures the social order, imposes rules. Kuja-ruled Vrizchika rashi delivers self-propelled championship, athletic conquest, and blood-running military drive. Thus in Anuradha a contradiction and a collision which implies the orderly regulation of combustible force:

  • the immovable object meets the irresistible force

Regulator of Post-war Alliances - Forger of Survival Relationships

  • "Alliance-builder" often in a 'survival' or urgently pressured context

  • collaborative and contractual partnership

  • "Post-war alliances ","forging ahead" despite a climate of hostility, often in desperation

  • alliances forged under duress

Radix Moon in Anuradha

Professor Chandra's classroom is characterized by emotional stability and security via socially approved institutional rules and regulations (Shani)

Emotionally, Anuradha creates a difficult and demanding situation.

Shani paired with Mangala = a tough deal

  • Emotionally, Anuradha creates a difficult and demanding situation.

  • through force of will and sharp determination , Mitra is able to combine the best of Shani's impetus to impose order upon human society with the best of Kuja's aggressive, invasive enthusiasm to win.

  • Anuradha-Chandra are capable of bringing together warring parties into a stable alliance.

Persistent and capable, determined workers.

  • In the final year of his life, Twilight of the Idols 1844-1900 Friedrich Nietzsche produced five books.

Often one's first experience with the task occurs in childhood, where the child assumes the work of bringing one's warring parents into some level of tentative working agreement.

The position of middleman can be dangerous and Anu-radha Chandra may seek solace in self-annihilating poisons.

One has inherited a strife-torn world which can bettered, slowly and persistently, through crafting of stabilizing and mutually profitable agreements.

One is making alliances between those who have been tortured by the violence of the splitting during the storm (Bishaja).

Agreements are delicate and uncertain, and may have to be ensured by threat of force.

Anuradha signifies "good luck" for those who survive the lightning-shocks-splits of Radha * Visaka * Bishaja.

Anuradha-Chandra childhood =

  • emotionally difficult, often due to harsh urgency of forced agreements.

  • Survivors are strengthened by the childhood ordeal , and one goes forward to enforce lawful agreements on intractable others.

(cf. USA attorney general Bobby Kennedy, dangerous work getting Mafiosi to obey the USA law).

Anuradha Chandra strives to resolve tensions by creating alliances and instrumental friendships. Success in their life is based on a feeling of satisfaction earned through creating a network of legal (Shani) Agreements with violent (Mangala) or threatening parties.

Sincere interest in co-operative law-enforcement with colleagues and peers. Participates in elaborate networks of agreement that support large-scale schemes for human benefit.

One works steadily and consciously toward goals, with leadership ability; consistently willing to share the gains and losses - both .

Lawfully-oriented in life overall.

Sturdy alliances = the source of wealth.

Allied partners expand the scope of decision-making power .

Despite independent deal-making appearance, this native never acts alone. One depends on the resistant (Shani) cooperation of others for one's success. A bit of arm-twisting is an essential tool in the working toolkit of this crafty deal-maker!

Anuradha-Chandra travels for purposes of meeting others, imposing hard-crafted agreements in stressful times .

The spouse must be a self-regulated person : sober and hard-working like Anuradha.

Compatible mates are born with Chandra in the Shani-ruled Nakshatra portions :

  • Chandra in Pushyami * comforted by lawful customs * protectors of the ethno-social structure, sensitive legislators, sober caretakers, legally minded environmentalists

  • Chandra in Anuradha * comforted by resistance to danger * protectors against preventable damage, guardians of customary weapons, defensive invasions, regulated explosions

  • Chandra in Uttarabhadrapada

Anuradha-Chandra's downside can be a flaring temper, evoked by jealousy that can escape one's control. Basic compassion and the inner mandate to achieve agreement not annihilation (annihilation = Radha) will normally bring Anuradha-Chandra back to their alliance-crafting senses.

Career ** Surya rules the emotionally motivated, social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra-Vrizchika

For the Anuradha native, Ravi = a significant indicator of career recognition and professional success in carrying out public duties.

For the Anuradha native, Surya mahadasha tends to occur in the mid-fifties and early sixties. Check the individual Vimshottari dasha timeline to determine the exact start-stop times.

Therefore the most significant era of career power is often very well timed with social expectations that a top manager, executive, or president should have some grey hair but yet also some residual youthful vitality in order to do the best job in social leadership roles.

  • Raag Khamaj 1920-2012 sitarist Ravi Shankar had a very strong and globalized placement of 10-Meena-Surya-yuti-Zukra -uttama. Although Shankar began traveling for musical performances in his late childhood, his highest intensity touring began in his mid-fifties during the mahadasha of Surya bhratrupathi-3 ensembles, younger siblings, cohort - whilst traveling in musical cohort with his younger friend My Sweet Lord" 1943-2001 Beatle George Harrison.

  • USA-Sen-Utah 1947- finance Mitt Romney + Guru-yuti-Ketu * USA Republican Presidential candidate 2012 during his Chandra-Budha period age 64-65

Prenatal maternal narrative of Shani and Born into Shani Mahadasha

born into period of L-3+bandesha-4 from Vrizchika Chandra. Predisposed to accept material and social leadership responsibilities. Predisposed to manage social organizations, including the sibling group. A responsible child; mother's helper.


A relevant example of spiritual excellence achieved via Anuradha Chandra = Mrs. Melinda French Gates, wife of Microsoft 1955- philanthropist Bill Gates who works tirelessly on behalf of children in impoverished, war-torn settings.

The environments most damaging to healthy childhood are of course dominated by aggressive (Mangala) and generally rather primitive-minded males (Kuja).

Her task is to provide institutional structures (Shani) such as schools and medical delivery systems (Shani) that can support the weak ones against the strong ones (Shani vs. Kuja).

Naturally this is a delicate business involving constant repositioning and hammering out new agreements (Mithra) so that the immovable object (Shani = social order) is not destroyed by the irresistible force (Kuja = selfish war)

Also this business partnership = an auspicious marriage from Nakshatra point of view. Mrs. Gates = Shani-driven, always-structuring and regulating Chandra-Anuradha while Mr. Gates enjoys a highly compatible the Chandra-Uttarabhadrapada placement.


Mother has a need to sustain work duties which deliver validation via invasive control (Vrischika).

  • She feels a need to labor on behalf of warriors, surgeons, emergency workers, and secret-keepers.

Anuradha is a difficult placement for the mother.

  • The sexual vitality in marriage (and other intimate relationships) competes for emotional resources with social duty roster; however the sexual vitality remains fairly high.

  • The mother's parenting style is intensely controlling with a powerful emphasis upon rules and regulations. This mother is perceived as one who is training the youngster to understand the rules so that one will ultimately be empowered to break those ruled, manipulate them or undermine them.

Having received the emotional influence of Anuradha via the mother, Anuradha Chandra will be comfortable in relationships with persons who are secretive, invasive, and manipulative either in personality or due to their profession.

Trauma profile

fear of

  • violent disagreement,

  • physical or psychological invasion,

  • outburst of conflict

  • outright war

Special considerations :

Budha periods can be intensely mentalized for Anuradha children

Budha sees Chandra as an enemy graha.

  • Budha periods will be very strongly felt during the human developmental years age 5 to age 12.

  • Should Chandra occupy a Nakshatra of in the final pada of Shani = Pushya, Anuradha, Uttarabhadrapada = at the time of birth, it is very likely that the entire period of the child's age 5-12 will occur during the Vimshottari Mahadasha of Budha.

Parents of children with Chandra in a final quarter of a Shani-ruled Nakshatra *Pashya, Anuradha, or Uttarabhadrapada) should take note: you will be raising a highly mentalized, intellectually bright, critical, and argumentative child.

  • Observe the bhava and rashi of this child's Budha placement, and plan accordingly to support an inquisitive child who has already (in parallel lives ) mastered the fine art of the critique!

  • This child will find the holes in all of your arguments.

  • Budha periods are easier to manage and produce improved results after age 32 = the age of maturity for Budha

A good example of excellence in social responsibility with this nichha Chandra location = Chandra in Anuradha * comforted by resistance to danger * protectors against preventable damage, guardians of customary weapons, defensive invasions, regulated explosions = Mrs. Melinda French Gates, wife of Microsoft 1955- philanthropist Bill Gates who works tirelessly on behalf of children in war-torn settings dominated by aggressive (Mangala) and generally rather primitive-minded males (Kuja) to provide institutional structures (Shani) such as schools and medical delivery systems (Shani) that can support the weak ones against the strong ones (Shani vs. Kuja). Naturally this is a delicate business involving constant repositioning so that the immovable object (Shani) is not destroyed by the irresistible force (Kuja)

POTUS-32 Fireside Chats Franklin D. Roosevelt

Microsoft 1955- philanthropist Bill Gates

Aquero 1844-1879 St. Bernadette of Lourdes

POTUS-pair-39 Mental Health 1927- Rosalynn Smith Carter

PepsiCo distribution systems, philanthropist, Indra Krishnamurthy Nooyi

Jyotishi 1956- B. P. Lama

In order to mirror one's own subconscious emotional patterns, one attracts a core partner who expresses Shani-ruled Anuradha behavior.

  • POTUS-pair-39 Mental Health 1927- Rosalynn Smith Carter attracted an Anuradha-type partner of the hierarchical governance type. After serving as Governor of Georgia (US) and President of the USA, POTUS-39 Talking Peace 1924- Jimmy Carter turned his attention toward structured humanitarian service organizations and government-supervised elections processes, working well into his 90's.

Behaviors of the partner in context of deepest emotional needs = characterized role of Shani in one's own nativity.

  • Memories Dreams Reflections 1875-1961 Carl Jung attracted a somewhat stern but also progressive minded partner to whom he remained married until death despite several ongoing affairs du coeur. Similar to Mr. Clinton, his wife did not permit divorce but she did accept in mature fashion (Shani) the male sexual nature (Mangala).

Bonds easily with others born in Anuradha amza

two of the best friends of Microsoft 1955- philanthropist Bill Gates include:

  1. Anuradha-Chandra * Microsoft 1955- philanthropist Bill Gates' wife Melinda French Gates

  2. Anuradha-Chandra * Berkshire Hathaway 1930- capitalist Warren Buffett

The Nakshatra of navamsha Soma reveals the psycho-emotional needs of the partner. Partners own dormant or less materialized (astral) emotional needs for security, protection, and a feeling of rootedness or familial belonging within the shelter of the core emotional relationships can be seen in this view.

One is attracted to the Anuradha pattern of needs and emotional cravings for defensive (Mangala) structures (Shani) created through the activity of forging alliances (Mitra).

Anuradha characteristics while somewhat anxiety-provoking do indeed feel familiar, yet also intriguingly different from one's more conscious Uttarabhadrapada style of self-defense and self-structuring through the Uttarabhadra activity of fortress-building.

Under emotional stress, Anuradha navamsha Chandra can evoke inner Shani-Mangala conflict, provoking anxious jealousy and alliance-enforcing behaviors.

In particular this native may need approval for their physical appearance or the value of their work, confirmation of their beauty or prestige.

Anuradha Chandra intuitively seeks out companions with the qualities of friendliness. These are alliance-makers and negotiators, often found in diplomatic, brokering, and legal environments.

The partner needs a steady pattern of interaction with friends and colleagues to stabilize their own emotional life.

Partner may be overly concerned with entertaining others, spending excessive resource on group dinners or other compulsive hosting role.

  • If the teachings of Professor Chandra-Anuradha are subject to prolonged and repeating lessons (which are in reality multiple opportunities for accepting of gifts of understanding) usually via constrictive drishti. The partner may exhibit out-of-control jealousy, or be possessed with desire for The financial well-being or spouse of others.

  • Normally this partner receives enough emotional validation through their balanced network of family, colleagues, and friends.
