Bhava 1 = Karkata Bhava 1 = Appearances, Physical Form

= competition for social validation. In order to win the competition a person needs to be born with a healthy, vital, well-coordinated combination of physical behaviors and social traits.


Physical Body Image

  • The fleshly appearance and one's psychological body-image will inevitably fluctuate.

  • Naturally, whichever bhava is ruled by Chandra, the Lord of tides and flows, will fluctuate.

  • randhresha-8 and randhra bhava will tell whether the native undergoes transformative surgeries and medical treatments designed to change the fleshly appearance and identity.

  • The Karkata native will experience a lifetime of tidal retreat (apathy) and surge (passion) in the emotional response to body image and identity based on material appearance.


The Karkata native seeks to develop the physical personality identity through association with parental figures, land-owners, stewards of earth, those who care for children, cultural conservators, and patriots.

The social personality has an inherent affinity for the ocean, roots and seasonal cycles , owned lands and properties, and the mother-culture in which one was raised. the native is particularly influenced by the parental behavior (whether favorably or not).

One prefers an emotional response to life.

Karkata natives are generally needy, shelter-building, security-seeking, home-loving folk who have a strong emotional interest in caring for children and the Earth. Chandra rules only one domain in the nativity, which gives Karkata (and Simha) natives a singularly focused intensity of personality.

The Karkata native strives to maintain a competitively emotive personality and physical appearance.

Physical Constitution

  • Physical appearance depends on the condition of D-1/D-9 Chandra including rashi, bhava, companion graha, drishti, etc. Karkata lagna tends toward a soft, pale (even pasty) appearance and a fairly small physique.

Karkata can be very successfully competitive in terms of physical appearance, due to the intensity of The emotional need to maintain a competitive appearance.

Mother

  • Mother and mother-figures such as schoolteachers and caretakers ares extremely influential in shaping the social-personality identity.

  • Due to Mangala = karmesha-10 , Karkata lagna natives are often born to mothers who are emotionally driven toward creating and maintaining a competitive physical appearance.

The mother might be the socialite wife of politician or corporate-executive

an actress or fashion model

a public icon

Mother may experience some life circumstances which bring her into an intense awareness of her flesh-body size, shape, and well-managed presentation.

At a deep emotional level, the child intuitively absorbs the mother's body-competition instincts. Emotional security is forever tied to the one's ability to reflect the projected needs of folk society via the vehicle of one's physical body.

Bhava 2 - Values - Simha = Leo

dhanapathi-values-treasuries Surya rules a swabhava of enemy Zukra

Graha in Bhava-2 expression prize * price * appreciation * preciousness or changes to the appreciativeness of the family (2) toward the native. The type of appreciation is determined by the character of the graha.

Due to Simha ruling kutumbha-bhava-2, the family of origin has some sort of royal or celebrity qualities. Much depends upon Surya's characteristics. However, even when the notoriety is very localized, and the family are perhaps only a parochial aristocracy (big fish in a small pond) still, there is an element of uniqueness, intelligence, and creativity within the family identity.

Values are are self-oriented and self-directed in the style of enlightened self-interest.

Identify Surya in D-1/D-9.

The family lineage is often entitled, brightly self-confident and self-dramatizing.


Surya occupies Simha * mulatrikona 1-10 deg * ruler of 2 resides in 2 and Surya in bhava-2

The family is creative, charismatic, political, and theatrical with characteristically bright faces. Their ability to appreciate the native depends upon the treasury that one brings into the family coffers. Pitrikaraka Surya suggests that the father-figure may be a larger-than-life radiant figure, potentially of theatrical, aristocratic or political background.

Father is primarily concerned with maintaining the treasury of the lineage. Father may be involved in banking, storage, collections, conservation, value, lineage knowledge, animal breeding, historical records. Father is prone toward self-righteousness and usually he is the radiant solar center of the lineage.

  • War and Peace 1828-1910 Leo Tolstoy * Surya-yuti-Budha + Chandra. Tolstoy's father was a powerful feudal aristocrat, beholden to no higher authority except the Tsar. The family maintained possession of considerable lands (Chandra) and treasures, was famed and privileged.

  • Among the Believers 1932- V.S. Naipaul * mulatrikona + Guru + Budha-yuti-Ketu


Chandra-Simha * ruler of 1 resides in 2 and Chandra in bhava-2

 The family is sensitive and routinized in their style of showing appreciation to the native. Matrikaraka Chandra suggests that Mother may be primarily concerned with maintaining the treasuries of the lineage which includes containment of the genetics. She can be involved with banking, storage, collections, conservation, value, animal breeding, lineage knowledge, historical records. Family displays pale, moonglow faces. She often owns property. Lagnesha Chandra in bhava-2 suggests a person who is deeply identified with the Old Ways, but feeling a need to politicize the values of the traditional folkways.

Characteristics of Surya ruler of Simha-2 must be considered before making determination of the qualities of the family line.


Mangala-Singha * yogakaraka ruler of 4-9 resides in 2 * treasuries acquired via political ideology, romance, artistic performance, championship, charisma and Mangala in bhava-2

The family  tradition is competitive and outspoken in their style of showing appreciation to the native. Bhratrukaraka Kuja suggests that Brothers are dominating and vigorous. Often an athletic or warrior lineage. The band of brothers are concerned with obtainment of Treasury. Collected wealth (capital) is typically present at birth and dynamically pursued by the native. The family may be dynamically successful in their pursuit of material treasures, particularly conserving wealth derived from Mangala acts such as military invasion, forceful explorations, weaponry, engineering, surgical tools, driving, diving, drilling, plumbing, plowing, hunting, excavating, explosives.

Characteristics of Surya ruler of Simha-2 must be considered before making determination of the qualities of the family line.

  • POTUS-43 Decision Points 1946- George W. Bush * noted political family, brothers in financial and political power

  • POTUS-45 Play to Win 1946- Donald Trump * atmakaraka Surya yuti uttama-Rahu-11 occupies the gainful 11th in the executive 10th-from-Mangala. A verbal force of nature. The father = a highly inflated sense of his own importance. Entitled speech, particularly in the sexual discourse (Kuja). Likely the father transfers his narcissistic traits to his son.

  • Mad Monk 1869-1916 Romanov Grigori Rasputin

  • India-PM 1917-1984 Indira Gandhi * Yogakaraka * parivartamsha L-2 Surya-5

  • Secret Doctrine 1831-1891 Theosophy Helena Blavatsky + Shani + Budha-yuti-Rahu


Budha-Simha * ruler of 3-12 resides in 2  and Budha in bhava-2

Fhe family tradition is communicative and gesturing in their style of showing appreciation to the native. . Younger siblings of either gender may be managers of the treasury of the lineage. Siblings and cohort-members can be involved with banking, storage, collections, conservation, value, animal breeding, lineage knowledge, historical records. Siblings are often active in the center of the lineage.

Characteristics of Surya ruler of Simha-2 must be considered before making determination of the qualities of the family line.


Guru-Simha * ruler of 6-9 resides in 2 * mixed results, often doctrinal conflicts and Guru in bhava-2

family of origin is philosophical, generous, or expanded (physically, artistically, socially, or financially). The family lineage may contain professors, dogmatists, preachers, ideologues, theorists, or globalists. The vocabulary of paradigms of belief may be a salient feature of the family identity.

The family tradition is expansive and inclusive in their style of showing appreciation to the native. . In the nativity of a wife, her husband (dhava-karaka Guru) is a curator of the treasury of the marriage. In the nativity of a husband-figure, one's financial holdings are influenced by the paradigm of belief. One's own knowledge of values and history is expanded by the presence of teacher-preachers in the family lineage. Sacred doctrine may play a central role in the family tradition.

Characteristics of Surya ruler of Simha-2 must be considered before making determination of the qualities of the family line.


Zukra-Simha * ruler of 4-11 resides in 2 * dhanayoga  and Zukra in bhava-2

The family tradition is balanced, aesthetic, and aligned to financial well-being in their style of showing appreciation to the native. . For a husbandly nativity, Zukra indicates the wife. For either husband or wife, Zukra indicates sister, sisters-in-law, aunts, and female associates are lovers of luxury and beautiful in a mysterious way.

Shukra-Simha-2 may enjoy a charismatically attractive voice. The sisterly-ones are concerned with treasuries. This capital wealth is typically present at birth and improved by the contractual, agreement-making abilities of the women and the native.

Characteristics of Surya ruler of Simha-2 must be considered before making determination of the qualities of the family line.


Shani-Simha * ruler of 7-8 resides in 2 and Shani in bhava-2

The family tradition is delayed or stalled in their style of showing appreciation to the native. Yet with the slow passage of time,  the necessary confidence will arrive that permits the native to assert one's own value regardless of social strictures. (Check condition of Surya to determine the nature of the eventual evaluation.) Elders (Shani) play a significant role in the family's identity.

Lawful, no-exceptions Professor Shani is exceptionally uncomfortable in charismatic, entitled, unique Simha rashi. Shanicarya casts drishti into 4-8-11 straitening conditions in the childhood home, imposing strictures in the foundational education, limiting the inheritance, and slowing the pace of economic gains. The knowledge-treasury may slowly be obtained but prognosis for wealth depends upon Surya.

The family carries a weight of perceptual limitation due to materialism and emotional handicap, preventing it from appreciating its own lineage. Agents of the government, officers of the social order, the elderly, hierarchs, and other Shani-figures may limit and restrain the family's acquisitions. Shani produces heavy restraint and social obligations upon the lineage, constraining but not denying wealth acquired via royal or aristocratic entitlements, theatrical talent, or political aspirations.

Characteristics of Surya ruler of Simha-2 must be considered before making determination of the qualities of the family line. 


Rahu-Singha  and Rahu in bhava-2 * The family is ambitious and seeking social mobility. Often the lineage is irregular in some fashion; most typically an imposter from another line is claiming legitimacy in the family line (usually a case of disguised parentage. Rahu's angle from Chandra will reveal this impostor.). Rahu-2 indicates a craving to expediently obtain the privileges accorded to the class of bankers, hoarders, treasurers, and preservers.

May an obsessive collector of sentimental things, and use this collection as a platform for social ascendance. Simha favors glittering drama ; the family's response to the native is often deceptively celebratory. If the family finds it expedient to promote and appreciate the native, this may occur. If the family finds it expedient to disgrace the native, this may also occur. Find Rahu's ruler, and evaluate other graha in 2, to determine which path is most instrumental for shape-shifting Rahu.

Lineage features individual or family over-reaching (Rahu) via flashy displays of treasure. Tradition of showing off * flaunting the treasures, or (more accurately) the illusion of treasuries of knowledge or material wealth.

Characteristics of Surya ruler of Simha-2 must be considered before making determination of the qualities of the family line.

  • Secret Doctrine 1831-1891 Theosophy Helena Blavatsky + Shani + Mangala + Budha


Ketu-Singha  and Ketu in bhava-2 *

The family tradition is dispersed and disregarding in their style of showing appreciation to the native.  The family's lineage treasury may dissipate over the period of one's lifetime. Second marriage is rare with Ketu-2, and if it occurs the spouse is eccentrically detached from oneself. One may inclined to surrender the lineage identity and wander away, seeking anonymity.

Find Ketu's ruler Surya, and evaluate other graha in bhava-2, to determine which outcomes are likeliest. Characteristics of Surya ruler of Simha-2 must be considered before making determination of the qualities of the family line.


Centrality Entitlement Ego

The best treasury-collecting style = Zukra = balanced in judgment, sensitive to beauty, a curator of lasting values, graciously sensual, taking pleasure in sharing The financial wealth

  • If Surya the brilliant and confident karaka of Truth should become compromised by unfortunate association, one may develop a self-righteous (Ravi) style of acquisitiveness that is self-focused, opportunistic, intolerant, and politicized rather than oriented to intra-family shared pleasures.

  • If such a Surya disability develops, it may manifest in a wealth culture of exaggerated entitlement or boasting, in which the only acceptable behavior of family members is that which directs praise and applause upon the center-stage native.

  • The creativity of the family line may be stifled by a dominating, attention-hungry Karkata native, who wishes the public to see one as the most valuable person in the family.


As a child, the Karkata native strives to be validated as the most brilliant face-eyes-mouth exponent of their historic family lineage.

Although difficult graha in bhava-2 may create additional complexity or oppression, nevertheless they expect (demand) to be treated like little kings and queens within their families.

The performance skills based in face and voice (2) are ego-developed in this validation pursuit.

Childhood drama is followed by the adult concern to be socially confirmed as having royal value .

This high valuation (2) of performance-for-applause may account for the preponderance of actors and politicians (Simha) who have Karkata on the radical lagna or Karkata-Chandra.

Naturally, both Surya and the vidya-pathi-5 should be strong to give a lineage-royalty result. (For example, the official royals all have a strong value-confirming Surya.)

Sahaja Bhava 3- Mental Process

Kanya = Virgo

Mental health tends toward chronic internal argumentation. Can a placement of severe depression should Shani cast drishti into bhava-3.

Depending on Budha's astrological condition, Karkata's thinking process tends to be highly analytical with an attitude of victimization, or a sub-narrative of unfairness and conflict. the native is detailed and categorical in writing style, and Karkata may surprise others with the size of their working vocabulary.

  • the native has a strong capacity to organize one's own schedule, so that the typical Budha-driven workload of many meetings and continuous small-group social engagements can be managed.

  • Karkata is a good business administrator, media producer, narrative publisher.

  • Self-earned income (3) can be generates from books, movies, and other publications featuring the native .

  • Karkata possesses good mental skills for staying on the surface of issues communicatively while expressing emotional engagement.

Always a friendly handshake. (Helpful in politics!) Disposition of 3rd-from-Chandra will tell more about siblings; bhava-3 from radix lagna can signify team-mates and co-workers. Sharp, analytical and systematic organizational skills for small-group process: facilitation, ongoing conversation, etc.

Very skillful in media production and publication activities, both the script-writing side and the business administration side. Sharp and detailed management of public relations.

Bhava-4 * Thula = Libra

Zukra rules a swabhava of Chandra. Home, upbringing parents, family, security, education


  • Negotiator of security

  • needs a gracious, balanced-designed home property

  • usually white, pastel, or pale in color

  • may practice diplomacy, bargaining, or contract-making at home

  • pleasant females in the home and homeland

One adopts an equable, partnering (Thula) role at home (4).

For Karkata lagna, bhava-4 is ruled by Zukra ( Enemy of Chandra); therefore, some complications along the path to achieving the deepest physical and emotional security in life, due mainly to human sensuality.

Sweetness in the roots of home and homeland. Karkata takes delight (Zukra) in the parents and their home. A pleasant childhood is usually provided.


Surya-4

Chandra-4

Mangala-4

Budha-4

Guru-4 * Guru-Thula brings the rulership of 6 and 9 into home-and-hearth bhava-4. Philosophical conflict between the parents, or perhaps the parents serve in a medical or military profession.

Zukra-4

Shani-4

Rahu-4 * Rahu-Dhanuzya

Ketu-4

Although general a positive placement for sensual happiness via ownership of non-moveable wealth (shelters and lands) + moveable shelters (vehicles), some combinations spell loss.

  • Common patterns of property loss through"champagne taste on a beer budget" Zukra occupies 12th-from-4th (3); Zukra = nichha (Kanya); or Zukra moudhya-dosha.


Strives for diplomatic balance in matters of home and family. Likes to negotiate on matters of national, local, and home-based security.

Depending on Zukra's condition , tend to have tastefully decorated homes where they enjoy entertaining guests. Like to share their extended family feeling of security and trust, inviting neighbors and colleagues into their gracious homes.

Quality and location of home is very important, and decor must reflect balanced color, style, and design. Careers (7) are built through home-based entertaining, building support through gracious living.


Zukra ( Enemy of Chandra) rules bhava-4, therefore expect some complication some complication along the path to achieving the deepest physical and emotional security in life.

Selected placements:

  • Zukra enjoys Malavya Yoga or favors the acquisition of luxurious estates, palatial houses, and highly expensive vehicles.

  • Zukra = sweet relationship to the parents, tends to acquire wealth via lands and shelters, a gracious entertainer of local folk. Marvelous placement for the home-based partner of a politician or ascending business executive.

  • Chandra-uttama dig-bala in 4 = deep rooted relationship to one's ethnic peoples, parents, customary practices. A nurturing parent.

  • Surya = self-oriented parents who crave attention. Father may dominate the childhood home environment. Supports career in school-teaching, agriculture, police, or transportation.

Bhava 5 * Vrizchika = Scorpionis

Kuja rules a swabhava of friendly Surya


  • Romance, Creativity, Children, Performance Art, Authorship, Genius

  • theatre of investigation, pursuit

  • performance arts of inquisition and control

Dynamic self-expression finds a wellspring of energy for self-promotion. Depending entirely on the condition of Mars , the Self may express in an elegant or crude way, in literature, politics, or performance arts - but Karka lagna has plenty of energy to harness due to Mars' lordship of the personal-creativity house.

Some penetrating, exploratory behavior from children, usually accommodated by Karka lagna's deep love of family.

Success in political campaigns, theatrical performance, promotion of creative works, sports coaching. Likes high-energy scenes, children's sports, thrill of competition.


For Karkata lagna, Ketu co-ruler of Vrizchika can afflict The putra-bhava influencing outcomes related to speculative finance, political elections, children and creative genius.

The Karkata native is raised with an active (Kuja) even dominating but also ambivalent (Ketu) approach toward asserting one's personal intelligence and creativity.

The children may be muscularly strong but also very sensitive psychically. They are natural tantrik healers, especially the eldest One.

The eldest child's body image perception may be confused: on the one hand, Kuja gives sexual prowess, muscular competitive strength, and a joy in movement. On the other hand, Ketu contributes a mystical detachment which can result in a fundamental ambivalence toward the body and its care.

Bhava 6

Dhanuzya = Sagittarius


Guru -Jupiter: Wisdom Expansion

Enemies, Debts/Finance, Disease


Approach toward Interpreting and Responding to situations of Conflict and Complaint

Karkata radical lagna indicates an approach to conflict and complaint the is characterized by the high-mindedness of Dhanushya. The over-arching, thematic perspective of Dhanushya can produce some remarkable scholars of the law, particularly when Pushya rises.

Bhava-6 is an accusatory and often litigious environment.

Surya in bhava-6

Surya-Dhanuzya suggests that the father has a medical career, or attorney specializing in legal philosophy of conflict management, or a military strategy. The family is often in disagreement due to ruler of 2 in 6.


Chandra in bhava-6

Chandra-Dhanuzya Brings the lagnesha into ripusthana, suggesting a ministry of service in medicine or military. The mother is ill and usually in service, often in the medical or householder professions.


Mangala in bhava-6

Mangala-Dhanuzya Brings a competitive, adversarial dynamic energy into bhava-6. The theoretical philosophical inclinations of Dhanushya expressed via the yogakaraka ruler of 10 and 5 may produce a gifted criminal attorney or a philosopher of human injustice.


Budha in bhava-6

Budha-Dhanuzya imports the narratives of 12 and 3 into 6-service, creating a Viparita Raja-Vimala Yoga which often deals with crime yet protects the native from imprisonment. Pursuing a theory of criminal rights, may serve as a defender of illicit business.


Guru in bhava-6

Guru-Dhanuzya dharmesha-9 and rogesha creates troubles for the father and ideological, doctrinal principles may become enslaved to criminal activities or war. Typically the native also battles health situations related to overexpansion of the flesh. Health can be compromised by abundance. Unbalanced food combinations, or overeating, can generate longer-term indigestion and elimination issues or pelvic stress.


Zukra in bhava-6

Zukra-Dhanuzya carries the rulership of 4 and 11 into 6. Health concerns for the mother, impoverishment possible due to real-estate or transportation. Nearly always some struggle with addiction, exacerbated by the influence of unsavory friends. Potential for betrayal by friends and even, depending upon the role of Chandra-lagnesha, betrayal by the mother.


Shani in Bhava-6

Shani-Dhanuzya Becomes ruler of 7 and 8 residing in 6, a harbinger of marital conflict or ailment of the spouse, but also a stalwart defender of justice (7) on behalf of the exploited (6). Viparita Raja Sarala Yoga is generally protective against catastrophic destruction and tends to cancel debt. The government may become one's primary enemy, yet one remains philosophical


Rahu in bhava-6

Rahu in Dhanavana * exotic sources of humanism, philosophy, ideology. Splendid placement for Rahu. Under auspice of grand philosophies, one may engage in war, exploitation, corruption, and crime using these behaviors at the platform for personal privilege.


Ketu in Bhava-6

Ketu-Dhanuzya apathetic, dissolute Ketu is well-placed in bhava-6 where He disregards the adversaries and disintegrates the toxic influences of enemies, debts, and diseases. The life philosophy may be rather incoherent, but one escapes the sufferings of bhava-6 simply by not being attracted to the miseries.


The overall outcome of bhava-6 situations depends on the condition of Brihaspati. The Karkata native tends to have few real enemies. One may be ideologically or doctrinally embattled at times, but generous and abundant Guru assures through His expansive, inclusive character that the animosity and injustice of 6 is philosophically comprehended.

Dhanushya as bhava-6 often give the impression (true) that one was of a humanistic and compassionate orientation despite the unbalanced outcome.

Bhava 7 * Makara = Capricorn

Shani rules a swabhava of good friend Zukra.


Balance; Marriage; partnership; contracts; deals; agreements; law courts; advising; equality; justice

Marriage expectations are dominated by a profound sense of duty and respectability, rather than a primary drive toward personal intimacy. Spouses look respectable in public but often there is limited sensual and emotional vitality in the marriage. Outcome depends as always on the condition of Shani.

Does well to marry an elder or deeply conventional spouse. Lawful approach to matters of contractual obligation, including marriage. Naturally if Shani is not well disposed, the marriage alliance might not be perfectly lawful nor entirely easy to endure. However, with Shani planetary patron of bhava-7, 'endure' is the key concept.

Contracts, agreements, legal discussions, all types of advising are somewhat difficult and tedious. Divorce is uncommon, unless the teachings of Professor Shani are subject to prolonged and repeating lessons (usually via constrictive drishti). Despite their tolerance for meetings and party talk, these folks dislike adversarial conflict, and they will compromise in order to avoid legal disputes. They like to talk, not to argue.

Spouse can be made into a workhorse, piled up with duties and schedules, treated as a fixture in public life, emotionally ignored. Intimacy problems. Does better with an older or more conservative spouse whose self-image is also invested in public role-playing.

From the classic commentaries:

"The female born will murder her husband if

the rising Trimsamshaor the Trimsamsha occupied by the Moon be that of Saturn,

while the Ascendant or the sign occupied by the Moon at the time of birth is Karkata."

~~ Bhrigu Sutram Ch. 4 Shloka 48-56


"If, during birth, Capricornus or Aquarius be descending or Saturn's Navamsha be descending,

the woman will get an old fool for her husband."

~~ Bhrigu Sutram Ch. 24 Shloka 11


If at woman's birth, the 7th bhava or the setting Navamsha be that Saturn,

her husband will be an old man and a fool.

~~BPHS Ch. 80, shloka 22-25

Bhava 8 * Kumbha = Aquarius

Shani and Rahu rule a swabhava of Mangala (!)


Joint assets of marriage, secret matters, in-laws, therapeutics, healing, taboos, taxes, tantra

Joint financial assets of marriage are subject to considerable stress due to the extreme behavioral difference between the co-rulers Shani and Rahu.

One's partner contributes less land and wealth into the marriage - although, depending on Shani's condition and Rahu's , the spouse may be helpful in promoting public identity (8th house is 11th-from-10th, spouse's contribution to joint assets is normally gainful for career.)Rahu adds an exotic twist so that the spouse-partner may affect the joint assets in peculiar way. The in-laws are also rather odd people - perhaps ideologues or eccentrics.

Exempli gratia,, if karmasthana-10 is comfortable, spouse may have a substantial formal education which contributes social status dignity benefitting one's own career.

  • POTUS-43 Decision Points 1946- George W. Bush offers an example of the Karkata-1 joint-assets in marriage situation. Mr. Bush's karmasthana-10 signifying the spouse's education (4th from 7th) gains strength in both radix and navamsha.; randhresha-8 Shani-yuti-Budha-yuti-Zukra are indicators of responsibility, intelligence and beauty. Thus Mr. Bush's wife as defined by Shani appears to be lovely and articulate but randhresha-8 showing the assets of the partner's family occupies 6th-from- swakshtra; shows that although she may bring valuable non-monetary assets into the marriage,; she is bringing little direct financial wealth. In days of old, her dowry would have been very small and she would have been treated more as a servant to the husband's family. (And there is some argument that in the modern context this pattern has repeated albeit more psychologically than physically.)

Whether or not the spouse helps Karkata's career (and they usually do), the primary partnership and its assets, being governed by yuvatipathi-7 randhresha-8 Shani, typically earns less cintamani * mani * money  and brings less financial well-being into the marriage from partner's birth family. The spouse is normally from a family of lesser social standing, and Karkata's in-laws may prove quite Shani-like.

Normally it's difficult for the Karkata-1 native to access deep healing such as psychotherapy, therapeutic massage, and other regenerative therapies. Their defensive hard shell doesn't easily permit a healer to enter their private psycho-physical space.


For Karkata lagna, Rahu co-lord of Kumbha afflicts eighth bhava of spouse's family, marital wealth, emergencies, and secret knowledge.

  • Mixed signals operate in the relationship to the spouse's family (in-laws), toward the management of emergencies. and regarding secret knowledge collections (8).

  • The joint assets of marriage (8) are materially well connected and scientifically managed, but the native or the spouse's family may interrupt (Rahu) the steady development (Shani) of marital wealth acquisition by imprudently taking out monies for secret, risky or impulsive ventures.

  • While overall a socially stable group with definite goal-orientation, the spouse's family history is nevertheless subject to sudden emergencies and upheavals due to passionate behavior of the family members. Spouse's family will be ideologically rigid and culturally unusual.

Naturally there may be more upheaval in the spouse's family, more emergencies on one's life, and more contact with the conditions of death during any dasha period of Rahu or transit of Rahu-Ketu through the Simha-Kumbha axis.

Bhava 9 * Meena = Pisces


Guru- Jupiter: Wisdom Expansion


High philosophy; Scholarship; Guru; Professor; University; Wisdom; Father; spiritual teachers and beliefs; Divin ity

The inspiration and consolation of Religion is easily accessible to Karkata-1 natives. However as always if Guru is compromised there may be less happiness in the dharma.

An easy faith arises in their lives, due partly to their privilege of staying within a religiously homogenous culture for most of their lives. Heart-centered, childlike faith. Karkata natives typically have no desire to question their beliefs... they prefer to accept, with devotion, the inherited values of their family lineage.

Parents and nearby society display religious values clearly during their childhoods, and a strong but compassionate moral framework supports early ego-membrane development. Natural trust of religious authorities and very little urge to test their principles against other religious systems. Charmingly pure - if sometimes naive.

Bhava 10 * Mesha = Aries


Kuja rules a swabhava of Shani.

With Kuja as the 10th lord, Karkata-1 natives have plenty of energy to invest in career development. Not only is the ego-membrane (L-2 Surya) generally wanting to exemplify their family's values in society, but also their deep need to provide for their families, compensate for a lesser-earning spouse, and be a credit to the mother who raised them are all factors that support high levels of career development for Karkata-1.

Depending on Kuraja's strength , Karkata-1 native generally has access to hearty reserves of physical energy necessary to build a professional reputation. Long hours, vigorous public activities, ability to get along on less sleep, competitive ambition, and a warrior's stamina in battle all facilitate a strong leadership position.

Bhava 11 * Vrishabha = Taurus


Zukra rules a swabhava of Shani.

Zukra rules Karkata-1's 4th bhava = home and rhythmic patterns of settled life, along with their 11th bhava of voluntary friendships and gainful marketplace associations. Karkata folk love their settled, land-owning lifestyle and their old, income-earning friends. They truly enjoy socializing although not with everyone but rather with the familiar, habitual, and usually land-owning classes of folk.

Zukra's natural sensuality brings Karkata-1 into the company of attractive, financially privileged, and self-indulgent people.

Unless Zukra is fallen in Kanya (which can bring serious trouble with women and intoxication) Karkata-1 enjoys the company of many well-meaning and generally well-heeled denizens of one's friends-and-family social world.

  • POTUS-43 Decision Points 1946- George W. Bush;

    rising Vriddhipathi-11 Zukra lord of uttama-Rahu-11 indicates Bush's easy social connections (11) . He enjoys a physical-image appeal to a wide range of constituencies, ranging through the very rich and adventurous (Rahu) to those who constantly talk (Budha) to the impoverished and fearfully conventional (Shani).

Seeks The company of (11) The financial wealth y, the knowledgeable, and those possessing beauty of face, eyes, hair, mouth, voice = Vrishabha .

General Effect on Friendship Networks

Zukra as Vriddhipathi-11 favors friendships with women, including pleasant association with sisters and aunts. Most likely friends are fashionable and elegant females. (Less so with nichha-Zukra.) A male may be true friends with his wife.

Zukra = karaka for wealth therefore when Zukra owns or occupies labha bhava = Karkata and Dhanushya the native 's propensity toward material wealth and enjoyment of sensual relationships with friends is much enhanced.

Karkata is the more overtly flesh-pleasuring influence due to Vrishabha's provision of fine foods and wines, musical and artistic company, delights of the five senses, an abundance of pleasures including a hefty bank account so long as Zukra is well disposed

Financially privileged by economic income and enjoys many social pleasures along the earnings path. Popular with women.


if rogesha-6 occupies 11:

Guru in 11 is of course not overtly harmful; however Guru in 11 for the Karkata native tends to introduce an unsavory element into the friendship network. Typically the undesirable element = religiously unbalanced individuals or those who use philosophical beliefs as a tool for expanding social conflict. Also the negatives include people who are physically and socially over-expanded in general.

Bhava 12 = Mithuna = Gemini


Budha rules a swabhava of Guru.

Brihaspati does not like the adolescent upstart Kumara!


The meditation and inner sanctuary house is somewhat disrupted by Budha's ceaseless chatter. Karka folk may never completely relax. Vyaya bhava is also the house of bed pleasures and other private sensual enclosures. Karka folk have a very active imagination but given their Shani-restricted 7th and 8th houses, bed pleasures might become overly mentalized.

Body-calming meditation and spa-type deep relaxation are too isolated for most Karka folks. Rather, given their love of family and friends, they prefer to relax in the sanctuary of the home, chatting by the fireside, or walking through ancestral properties.

Enemies of the marriage, always indicated by the ruler-of-12 and graha within Vyaya bhava, tend to be adolescent or quite young people of either gender (or mixed gender) with articulate and charming conversation skills. They are sexually flexible and open-minded.


Karkata-1 enjoys foreign travel and may, if Budha is strong, take up residence in a foreign land during Budha's periods. However Budha ruling bhava-12 means that the imagination engages the bodily senses. They will always long for the comforts of home and familiar sights, smells, and sounds.
