Chandra-Mithunaya always rules

  • family-oriented, language-loving, chatty, knowledge-transmitting, lineage-values, face-focused 2nd-from-Chandra

Chandra-Mithunaya always occupies

  • clairsentient, interior-looking, contemplative, reflective, privacy-seeking, invisible, imaginative 12th-from-swakshetra

Candescent, comfort-seeking Chandra needs to withdraw into sanctuary space in order to be immersed in one's own thoughts. Conversational and businesslike on the outside but the inner world is even busier. Generally maintains a distant (12)relationship toward parents (Chandra) and often has an affectionate relationship to the father's mother. Often comfortable in import-export and exchange oriented roles.

A dual personality with two separate scripted narratives: one outside visible to the public and one inside invisible in the imagination.

Mental challenges arising from the need to maintain separate discourse fields for multidimensional information flows may accompany the shamanistic "whisperer" Chandra-Mithunaya -8 for the Vrizchika radical lagna.

Rules the dreamy, sensitive 12th-from-swakshetra. Dissolution of the emotional attachments, with apprehension of astral signals (dreams, intuitions, divinations, psychic channeling)

Retreat into sanctuaries of reflective contemplation or imprisonment. Long sojourn in foreign lands.

With extra emotional-intuitive sensibilities, Mithuna-Chandra is often a surprisingly effective communication channel for unconscious voices and thus often quite a good writer.

  • Very sensitive shoulders, arms, hands and fingers.

  • Lungs = stress zone that absorbs emotional distress. When under emotional pressure, prone to asthma, bronchial disorders, pleurisy, pneumonia; sensitive to air-borne pathogens that affect breathing. Tend to be shallow, rapid breathers. Benefit very much from a pranayama practice.

  • Should never eat when the mind is upset. Should never, ever smoke any substance and should live in higher elevations or deserts with dry, clean air.

"Needs communication ".

Mithuna-Chandra needs to interact by sharing one's own internal narrative with another person or a group.

Delightful 'twinning' companion.

When Mithuna-Chandra looks in the mirror, s/he sees a Conversation Partner, an agent of publication, a charming articulator by speech and gesture, and a brilliant wit.

Mithuna-Chandra is emotionally attached to the image of self produced by the hands and the embrace, and the emotional psychology tends to interpret the world in a distinctively conversational, articulate, sexually interactive style.

The life-mate may have characteristics of Dhanushya. Although much depends in the profile of the life-mate upon the bhava of 7th-from-Chandra and other assessments, in general when the native is born under Chandra-Mithunaya

The life-mate usually displays some behaviors of Taukshika.

  • POTUS-pair-06 1775-1852 Louisa Johnson Adams was married to the profoundly influential diplomat, theorist and executive POTUS-06 American System 1767-1868 John Quincy Adams. Whilst Mrs. Adams was a conversationalist and concerned primarily with her immediate family and cohort (Mithunaya) Mr. Adams was a man of global vision and ability (Dhanushya).

In Mithuna, Chandra's psycho-emotional absorptive sensitivity acquires Budha-like communicative characteristics, and Mithuna-Chandra tends to have persuasive emotional response to the world. Mithuna-Chandra is prone toward articulated verbal expressions, conversations, information transactions as primary modes of emotional engagement with one's environment.

Mithuna-Chandra 's fundamental emotional urge is to engage in a diversity of types and levels of interactive communication with other beings and elementals in their environment, in order to form a clearer picture of oneself.

Mithuna-Chandra style = quickly intimate with the "Other" in the shared environment, like twins in the womb. However one can only remain engaged in relationships that retain the interest of the hungering self-information mind via an adequate amount of diversity, complexity, interactivity and multi-dimensionality.

Actual success (or not) in staying informatively engaged with their environment, and thus remaining emotionally stable, depends on the health of Mercury.

Budha = swakshetra (Mithuna) or uttama-amza (Kanya) = the mental capacity is highly developed. Emotionally sensitive communications and skillful information packaging can produce a remarkable career in messaging and evangelistic performance.

  • In the 1850's Walden 1817-1862 abolition Henry David Thoreau + Surya-yuti-Budha was famed for impassioned anti-slavery lectures. His rhetorical style was said to be both precise (Budha) and emotionally moving (Chandra).

Mithuna-Somana = steady and dedicated in relationships that provide mental challenge, cultural complexity, and interpersonal interest.

Mithuna-Chandra flourishes in networks of fast-paced, multi-cultural or multi-lingual, sexually- or politically-charged relationships, where one can flex the information-gathering psychic antennae with discrimination and skill. Tendency toward successful, communications-intensive careers in complex, sophisticated environments.

Handling the Mithuna-Chandra person:

If you have a Mithuna-Somana person in your life, be sure to interact with them in complex, multi-layered verbal transactions, that allow them to see themselves mirrored in you. Mithuna is a highly sexualized location, as sexually intimate communication is a very intense form of psycho-physical messaging.

  • If Mithuna-Chandra = your sexual partner, be aware of the need for constant engagement - both physical and psycho-emotional.

  • Mithuna-Chandra hands are especially sensitive.

  • Mithuna-Chandra = signaling in search of personal validation through communication.

If Mithuna-Chandra = your parent, child, or co-worker, remember they have a powerful need to discover their own identity via looking in the mirror of the Other .

Mithuna-Chandra = happy in their relationships when the emotionally needed self-confirming images = flowing in to them, from their 'conversation partners'.


Mithuna-Chandra needs to stay busy-busy in mentally engaging and meaningful-messaging behaviors. Mithuna-Chandra especially likes to schedule, plan, coordinate, cooperate, collaborate, organize, write, message, compose, interact, transact, transport, transition, instruct, explain, and describe. Their work is by definition a 'process' not a 'product' therefore the Mithuna-Chandra = 'never done'.

Parenting = Chandra-Mithunaya

The Mithuna-Chandra parent prefers children who are skillful and effective communicators with multi-cultural, multi-lingual capabilities, savvy about media messaging, mentally agile, and empowered to engage in teamwork. Children should participate in scheduling, planning, and organizing with their parents during their many - often constant - short-term travel events.

5th-from-Mithunaya = Thula

  • Diplomatic relationships + balanced designs = important.

  • Child = pleasant, aesthetic personality + strong bond with sisters, aunts, grandmother.

  • Sisters and feminine friends, as well as attorneys, designers, diplomats, bargainers, and deal-makers, in general are beneficial for this child.

Marriage and Qualities of the Life-Partner

7th-from-Chandra = Dhanuzya

Contractual Partnerships and Trusts

Naturally, the outcomes for partnership depend significantly upon the bhava of 7th-from-Chandra and also any graha located in Dhanushya, as well as drishti incoming into Dhanushya

7th-from-Chandra-Mithunaya = Dhanuzya

The partner often has "horsey" traits. Mate may be a world traveller, religionist, philosopher, ambassador, preacher and practitioner of generosity and good-will, father-figure, guru, priest, professor, teacher-scholar. Charitable, wisdom-spreading, and expansive in behavior. Often an agent, proponent, adherent, exemplar, or scholar of a global, humanistic paradigm of belief.

  • POTUS-32 Fireside Chats 1882-1945 Franklin D. Roosevelt * Mithunaya-Chandra-10 married POTUS-pair-32 Learn by Living 1884-1962 Eleanor Roosevelt. She was a globe-trotting humanitarian ambassador who travelled to dozens of countries on various diplomatic missions, served a daunting number of domestic charities, and supported national interests in many venues including the United Nations.

  • UK-Duchess 1947- Camilla Duchess of Cornwall * Mithunaya-Chandra married UK-Prince 1948- Charles of Wales . He is a world ambassador and tireless charity (Guru) supporter as well as an advocate for sustainable culture (Guru philosophy).

  • UK-Duke 1982- William of Cambridge * Mithunaya-Chandra married UK Duchess 1982- Kate of Cambridge. She is a world ambassador and tireless charity (Guru) supporter of charitable, humanitarian causes.

  • UK Duchess 1982- Kate of Cambridge * Mithunaya-Chandra married UK-Duke 1982- William of Cambridge. He is a world ambassador and tireless charity (Guru) supporter of charitable, humanitarian causes.

  • Wife-1 and wife-2 of POTUS-26 National Parks 1843-1919 Theodore Roosevelt * Mithunaya-Chandra were both active philanthropists (Guru) and social welfare advocates especially on behalf of immigrants (Guru, 12). The first wife represents Dhanushya whereas the second wife, who was the mother of a large blended family, is more profiled by Karkata (2nd-from-Mithunaya).


Difficult Angles:

  • 12th-from Mithuna-Chandra = Vrishabha

  • 6th-from Mithuna-Chandra = Vrischika

during Vimshottari periods of Chandra, Vrishabha -related matters create a nutrient drain (12th-from) upon the emotional vitality

Energy-drainers = emotional losses and erosion of identity + vital life-force power =

6th-from Chandra-Mithunaya

= disagreement-distrust-dispute-divorce = Vrizchika

  • Mithuna-Chandra has emotional conflict with mysteries, disasters, the occult and the unknown.

  • One waits to be attacked by hidden enemies.

  • From within (disease, poisons) and without (sudden dissolution of agreement, even unto war).

6th-from-Chandra = Professor Mangala rashi Vrizchika

Mithuna-Chandra suffers built-in emotional conflict with the occult and the unknown.

One waits in a state of mystery, knowing intuitively that one may be attacked by hidden enemies.

One might eventually coordinate the conflict and accept a programme of constant espionage (8) against enemies (particularly if there are graha in Vrizchika bhava) but it will never be easy because Budha lord of Chandra is an inimical and criticizing mate of Mangala rogesha-6 from Chandra.

  • POTUS-32 Fireside Chats 1882-1945 Franklin D. Roosevelt * 40graha in Vrischika navamsha and Rahu-Vrischika-3 = attack at Pearl Harbor and throughout WW-2

  • Russ-Empress 1729-1796 Catherine the Great + Zukra-yuti-Guru proactive murderess against attacks, constant intrigue in her court

Adversaries = agents of Vrizchika

  • secret operatives, confidential information, shock and trauma, surprise events

  • explorer, detective, tantriki

  • secrets, occult, dark and dangerous places

problematic 6th-from-Chandra= rashi of Vrischika

Graha in Vrizchika represent emotional adversaries

Mithuna are openly conversational folk who have an emotional affinity for constant conversation. Exchange of information and publication of messages of interest to the audience are Mithuna's natural business.

Mithuna conversational exchange vs. Vrizchika contained secrets are poised at a Jyotisha shad-ashtaka 6-8 angle.

rogesha-6 +Vriddhipathi-11 Mangala = Chandra Mithuna implicitly feels conditions of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy. May feel annoyed and upset with:

  • surgery and surgeons, psychiatrists and psychiatric healing, detectives and secrets, inquests and explorations, secret police, magicians and tantriki, confidential information and those who hold it, tax and tax agents; emergency responders and emergencies, bombs and explosives, sudden changes

Deeply embedded discomfort; however will improve with time because Mangala rules two upachaya sthana. Also, that which one dislikes handling is usually profitable because Mangala is also L-11.

  • The Mithuna Chandra lifetime is easier if Vrizchika rashi has no tenant graha..

Method of enacting emotional animosity toward one is characteristic of Vrischika:

  • secret-keeping, magical transformation or hiding of the truth, hidden treasure, hiding assets from the spouse or the spouse hiding assets from one, mysterious motivations of the in-laws, secretive behaviors any agent, confidential information, disasters, sudden eruptions of previously unknown forces, catastrophic change, emergencies, poisons acting undetected, undiagnosed disease

  • Mithuna Chandra + Vrishabha radix lagna

  • Vrizchika = bhava-7 = discomfort and imbalance-seeking-a-remedy in the marriage union.

  • If Mangala is strong and poorly placed, no matter how good other conditions might be in radix bhava-7, the fact that this house = 6th-from-Chandra makes it difficult to sustain a committed alliance.

Predisposition to Injury and Accident

  • Mithuna Chandra is somewhat prone to injury from invasive stings and metal-implement cutting, especially after age 50.

from Mithuna-Chandra lagna,

randhresha-8 = Shani friend of lagnesha Budha

  • Standard Oil 1874-1960 philanthropy John D. Rockefeller * great agent of social transformation, extreme change of identity when he abandoned directorship of Standard Oil and US Steel to pursue a life of detailed philanthropy

  • Shani-yuti-Surya + Budha + Zukra = all in 8th-from-Chandra

emotional core is geared to explanation and discussion . the native can move successfully through periods of significant identity upheaval via talking and receiving instruction on the new rules and regulations imposed by Shani.

19-year long Vimshottari periods of Shani = conditions of sudden emotional identity change induced by law and lawfulness, conformity to public opinion, reputation, social position

  • Details of the circumstances of the catastrophic change are indicated by the rashi and bhava of Shani

To see more periods of catastrophic emotional identity destruction and rebirth, Look also for malefic transits through the badhakha 22nd drekkamsha from Chandra .

Examples of transformative-trigger transits through 8th-from zones :

  • transit of malefic Shani randhresha-8 from Chandra across the 22nd drekkamsha from Chandra

  • transit of the Kharesha = lord of 22nd drekkamsha = transiting through radical lagna, through 22nd drekkamsha, across nakshatra of radical Chandra, via 8th-from-Chandra, etc.

  • transit of randhresha-8 from radical lagna via the 22nd drekkamsha from lagna.

Badhaka angle = 7th from Mithuna = Dhanushya Badhaka -sthana = harming-houses

Guru = badhesha

Makara radical Lagna = Capricorn

Chandra-Mithunaya = yuvatipathi-7 in 6 = 12th from swakshetra

Prone to divorce and accusations regarding events of the past. Stress zone = shoulders, arms, hands, lungs.


Chandra in Mithuna Rashi


  • Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 181
"These are very thoughtful, intelligent, and sometimes brilliant people.

They have a quickness of mind which may appear changeable to others, but which is nevertheless logical and orderly, and they make the most formidable opponents in argument, because of this ability to skip from one aspect of the subject to another.

With seeming irrelevancy, yet never for a moment losing sight of the main argument, they will return to [the main point] after having led their opponents through devious paths, into traps, from which it is difficult to extricate themselves.

They have a flair for scientific investigation and, indeed, are fond of all education and learning. They are talkative and are excellent linguists.

They are extremely active mentally and restless physically, and are subject to mental breakdowns because of this. They should take much exercise in the open air. Ideas simply crowd though their minds, many at a time. They are really not as superficial as they appear to be and can give authoritative information on any subject. Their real and secret thoughts, however, are hidden from view beneath a superficial wit and brilliance as they are quite secretive. Their most successful occupation would be writing or journalism, publishing, etc.

They are excellent mimics and absorb like a sponge the thoughts of other people, quite often appropriating them as their own. They are rather inclined to be physical cowards, since living in the mental world, they shrink from bodily contact or injury and can be easily intimidated by a show of physical violence.

They suffer from asthma and diseases of the heart and respiratory organs, and should be careful of their food, refraining from eating when the mind is disturbed.

They are self-confident, and sometimes vain and arrogant, and are extremely skeptical of anything which cannot be proven scientifically. Very romantic, but not deeply touched by love or passion, they find great pleasure in the company of the opposite sex, being very fond of music, entertainment, dancing, speculation and gambling.

They are usually slim, of over average height. well-shaped straight noses, dark eyes , soft persuasive voices with a habit of hunching the shoulders when walking. Their faces resemble either a stag or deer. They should live in high altitudes, in the mountains or in the desert.

Their lucky stone is the Emerald and the best day for commencing any important activity is Wednesday."


Chandra in Mithuna Rashi


  • Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 198

"Keen intelligent faces, rather attractive, beautiful figures, particularly well shaped legs and ankles and small hands and feet are the most evident physical characteristics of the women with Moon in Gemini at birth.

Quite often they have natural curly hair which lends a feminine touch to faces which might otherwise be somewhat boyish in appearance.

These women are on tight wires all the time.

Nervously temperamental and excitable as a result of extreme mental activity and the tendency to do too many things at a time;

they even read three of four books at a time going from one to the other. They have the faculty of quickly grasping the essentials of a book by reading here and there in the book, preferring to do this rather than to start the book at the beginning and read consecutively through to the end.

They are talkative, with the habit of skipping from one subject to another. They are highly imaginative and romantic but not warmly affectionate.

They are best fitted for clerical jobs, writing, or work in the advertising departments of large concerns - file clerks, copy writers, research information, etc. If married, they will collaborate in their husband's business or work out some career of their own.

They are not good housewives, detesting the menial details of housework, but they make splendid organizers both at home and in the office, as they have a mental grasp of details, while abhorring the physical tasks of carrying them out.

They are interested in art, sculpture particularly, and are fond of reading poetry.

They have strong constitutions as a rule.

Their chief weakness is in the lungs, and they should avoid eating or drinking cold food or beverages, since this seems to affect the lungs. Intoxicating liquors are very dangerous to these women as while they are mentally stimulated by their use, the effect on the lungs is very disastrous.

They should also avoid the use of drugs or medicines whenever possible, as they have the power to cure themselves and will recover quickly from most ailments. Medicines and drugs seem to affect them adversely and act contrary to expectations."
