11th-from = Natural Friendship Community-Economy

befriends "Meena-12" types:

the lost and lonely; the disembodied, dissolved, or unmoving

spiritualists and diviners; meditators and those who offer private prayers, fantasizers, and dreamers;

those cloistered in monasteries, prisons, and other sanctuaries; spies and voyeurs; beings without bodies; foreigners; the imagination-oriented

those detached (12th-from) innovation and new ideas;

General Suitability of Gems for Vrishabha Lagna

  1. Surya ratna = possibly yes, because Surya = bandesha-4 and does not rules any other house

  2. Chandra ratna = no, generally, because Chandra = bhratrupathi-3 and does not rules any other house

  3. Mangala ratna = no, because Mangala = yuvatipathi-7 and ruler-of-12

  4. Budha ratna = yes, because Budha = L-2 and L-5

  5. Guru ratna = no, because Guru = randhresha-8 and Vriddhipathi-11

  6. Zukra ratna = yes, because Zukra = the auspicious lagnesha, but caution must be used for anyone with health or marital issues because Zukra also = rogesha-6

  7. Shani ratna = yes, with caution - because Yogakaraka Shani = dharmesha-9 and karmesha-10

  8. Rahu-ratna = unknown, depends on Rahu's ruler

  9. Ketu-ratna = unknown, depends on Ketu's lord

There are exceptions to all of these general rules which are caused by the position of Chandra, the active Vimshottari time lords, and the native 's personal goals, inter alia.

Yoga for Vrishabha lagna only

For Vrishabha lagna only.

  1. Chandra in lagna,

  2. Surya-Vrizchika (full Moon uttama in lagna)

  3. *and* Zukra-Thula

  4. *and* Budha in bandhu bhava.

Result = exceptionally high social position

Lagnesha Zukra

  • Identifies with Treasuries and Pleasures
Nativity = Vrishabha lagna or Vrishabha Chandra = strongly identified with treasuries of beauty and precious goods: both those consisting of valuable material resources and the store-holds of precious knowledge.

Barring damage to dhana-bhava or to the dhana-pati, most natives of Vrishabha become wealthy and knowledgeable, over time.

One may be socially most comfortable in the gracious, sensual environments of materially elegant, enriched, luxurious cultures.

Vrishabha natives are typically very acquisitive, with an advanced sensitivity to food, drink, sound, shape, and scent. A highly developed Zukra may become an extraordinary agent of visual beauty and healing sound.

For Vrishabha lagna, the character, placement, drishti re: gracious, acquisitive lagnesha Zukra will determine the conditions of social satisfaction.

Tangible Treasuries

accumulated treasuries of financial well-being and knowledge via the undertakings of Budha = lord of 2nd from Vrishabha.

The birth family are talkative (Budha) collectors of financial wealth reserves, acquisitive of financial wealth -containers such as herds hoards and properties, barring damage to dhana bhava.

For Vrishabha lagna and Vrizchika lagna

Budha-Ketu bhukti

Potential Divorce signification

Vimshottari dasha each Budha period is always followed by a Ketu period.

  • Budha = L-2 for Vrishabha and randhresha-8 for Vrischika. Thus lord of 2 or 8, which is a divorce trigger, is followed by influence of surrender Ketu.

  • Should the marriage be on shaky grounds before the Budha bhukti begins, and if other factors are present such as Budha ruling or located in an argumentative position,

  • then marital disintegration may start in a Budha period to be followed by abandonment and an exclamation of I give up during the immediately subsequent Ketu period.

During certain long mahadasha (Zukra, Budha, Rahu, Shani) the Budha and Ketu sub-periods are proportionally quite long also, therefore the script of argument (Budha) followed by apathy, despair of improvement, and ultimately abandonment, is given a long playing time in the script.

Raja Yoga

for Vrishabha lagna : Shani-Vrizabha + Zukra-Kumbha
~~ BPHS, Ch. 40, Sl. 13 "An exchange of Rashi between Karma's Lord and Lagna's Lord will make the native associated with the king in a great manne r."
~~ BPHS Ch. 5, Sl. 41 "If the lord of the Lagna and the 10th exchange houses with each other then they form a Raja Yoga. They will confer high position, reputation and power."
