dhanapati-2 from Karkata lagna
Pride and a Bright Radiant Quality in one's face, voice, eyes, hair(depending of course upon placement of Surya).
Pride in one's collection of valuable assets, including treasuries of valuable goods and conserved knowledge.
Chandra + Surya = lagnesha-1 + dhanapati-2
Father * Surya = pitri-karaka
Father is related to matters of bhava-2"values " including eyes, face, hair, voice, teeth, banking, treasuries of knowledge and language, libraries and databases, precious collections of all kinds, lineage values, and an understanding of family history
Surya karaka for rational self, soul, pride, and awareness of the Divine intelligence within every human being. Ravi controls Karkata-1 's family-of-origin relationships, historical traditions and language capabilities; one's food, hoarded wealth, art and music collections, face, teeth, mouth, and hair.
Surya, being a karaka for the eyes as well as the lord of bhava-2, the bhava representing the right eye, may have a pronounced effect on the ocular health.
If Professor Surya is not well-disposed in the nativity or perhaps Surya is enduring a difficult temporary influence such as oppression by gochara Shani or the Vimshottari period of an enemy graha, gems for Surya may help strengthen the positive expectations which will assist with overall healing.
As Dr. Kapoor notes (below) a combination of pure Ravi-ratna with flawless Soma-ratna for the Karkata lagna native will assist in evoking Karkata-1 's subconscious imagery of positive vitality and radiant good health in the eyes.

Professor Guru rules bhava-6 and bhava-9, suggesting Guru's natural affinity for matters of criminal activity (6) disease and disagreement (6) conflict and ministries of service (6) along with matters of doctrine and preaching (9) universities and global humanism (9) patriarchy, patronage and father figures (9). Ironically, for the Karkata-radical-lagna nativity, wise and generous Brihaspati poses some significant challenges in matters of career.
Although Professor Guru is a natural pleasure-giver subhagraha and a mitrugraha * friend toward lagnesha Chandra, nevertheless Guru rules the contentious abundance-of-problems bhava-6 and the rank-dissolving 12th-from-10th. The other leading career bhava is 7 = 10th-from-10th; from the 7th lagna, Guru rules 3rd-from-7th suggesting a primarily administrative focus in Career.
Guru mahadasha provides is a different experience than the earlier dynamic, competitive leadership energy of Mangala mahadasha. Depending on Rahu's ruler, the Rahu mahadasha is typically an era of ambitious and social-material accomplishment driven by the desire for privilege (and other desires of the Ruler). Therefore depending on Chandra's nakshatra which sets the starting mahadasha, one may have experienced quite a long era of public recognition and praise for leadership only to have a bit of a fall during Guru period.
If Guru has strength in the nativity, Guru mahadasha may be a time of very modest career advancement with a primarily philosophical (9) and often in the modern day highly internationalized (9) emphasis. Brihaspati is always a bringer of blessings in areas of consciousness, generosity, inclusiveness, and wisdom therefore it can never be said that Professor Guru is harmful to the human life. However, due to His non-helpful role in the particular area of career and public visibility, Brihaspati does bring an era of quietude and administrative rather than executive empowerment.
Because Surya = karaka for visible career and public recognition, and Ravi = dhanapati-2 for Karkata lagna, the Karkata native is somewhat disposed toward accepting public roles and professional leadership responsibilities in banking, storage and collections, esp. food (2) and speech and the mouth, song, language, story-telling, memory and historic conservation of natural and cultural artifacts.
Example environments include:
Remedial Ratna for Surya -
Manika = pure Ruby
"In the birth chart with Cancer (Karaka) Ascendant,
If there is loss or lack of wealth or trouble in eyes on account of the unhappy disposition or affliction of Sun in the chart,
The second house is also a Maraka house (house of death).
The beneficial results will be more pronounced
Chandra rules bhava-1
Chandra = lagnesha provides the social-material position for Karkata nativities
Chandra rules bhava-1, granting a particularly intuitive understanding and ability for matters of the physical body and its appearance, vitality and movement, often seen in iconic, representative, or athletic roles.
Because lagnesha Chandra rules tanu bhava-1, Karkata natives tend to be creatures of rhythmic habit who are uniquely sensitive to matters of physical appearance. Often they are socially defined less by distinctive actions and more by distinctive bodily appearance.
The bhava position of Chandra plus any influence upon Professor Somana from Rahu-or-Ketu are essential keys to the Karkata nativity's social placement and role. Any graha yuti Chandra or casting drishti into Chandra are extra potent for the Karkata radical lagna. Unless emotionally hardened by Nishturabhashi yoga or dulled by Chandra-yuti-Ketu, sensitive Shri Soma tends to be empathetic, impressionable, and receptive to the influence of others.
Consider the effects of companion graha (if any) when assessing Chandra's expected behaviors.
Muscular exercise and sport for purpose of physical fitness, costume and grooming, and maintenance of the physical body is typically important to their self-esteem and a normal feature of their routine. (Naturally graha in 1 or yuti Chandra will affect the appearance.) Karkata feels secure emotionally when the physical shell is looking energized and alive and when the vitality allows one to accomplish one's earthly work.
"Na' = moon and 'shetra' = field, campus, grounds. The three na-kshatra mansions of the moon which comprise Karkata rashi are distinctive in their effects upon the Karka nativity's social expression.
Karkata's component nakshatra are distinguished by high levels of patriotism and environmentalism.
Soma's sensitivities flow from a deep connection to the Home Planet, her oceans, and the root people in their lands of settlement. However, there are important differences due to the impressionability of sensitive Chandra.
Guru-ruled Punarvasu lagna produces emotionally motivated preachers, physicians and root-culture-defenders (including war-mongers) who protect and develop the place of settlement. Relationship between Guru and Chandra is key.
Shani-ruled Pushyami lagna produces lawyers, governors, and agents of social order maintenance. Because Shani dislikes Chandra (due to Chandra's parental exceptionalism vs. Shani's no-exceptions system) the legislative, judicial actions typical of Pushya tend to express an un The relationship between Shani and Chandra is key.
Budha-ruled Azlesa lagna produces messengers, announcers, writers, signalers, and businesspeople who use words as their primary tool of social engagement. Because Budha dislikes Chandra, the communications tend to be resentful of perceived slights, and emotionally charged by grievances. Relationship between Budha and Chandra is key.
The bhava of Chandra indicates the realm of identity and routine adult activities.
For women, the emotional need may express may involve a lifetime of beauty treatments and fashion fluctuations, in pursuit of a steady flowing with current images of vitality and youthful pleasing appearance.
For men, the emotional need for vital and competitive appearance may express as physical strength skills training for musculature and agility , in pursuit of a steady flowing with current images of vitality and youthful pleasing appearance.
Karkata often need to dance, swim, and take water-cures in order to feel their best.
Moon-Sun = lagnesha-1 + dhanapati-2
The highly fluctuating and impressionable Chandra must be studied closely to gain a clear profile of this native. Lagnesha Chandra infuses the Karkata native with emotional sensitivity and deepens the natural connection to the parents .
Karkata = comfortable with boating, fishing, and life near the sea shore.
Chandra's position will make or break the success of Karka lagna folks. Chandra will show the style and direction in which the life force wishes to travel.
lagnesha Chandra in uttama-asha, swakshetra, or in parivartamsha with His ruler, or in kendra provides emotional stability and often a visible element of social recognition. he stronger Soma's traits the strong Karkata-1 's performance in his specialty.
Guru, Zukra, and other sukha-graha may contribute their own measure of talent and capability to the life. However, the lagnesha Chandra has amplified powers to provide identity and a deep sense of belonging to a people or a place.
When lagnesha occupies the bhagya (fortunate) houses 1, 5, or 9, circumstances must be beneficial. Yet, the fallen Moon causes moodiness (to the extreme of bi-polarity), emotional implosion, and hostility in the family. Vrizchika Moon may press Karkata-1 into a self-obsessive state that yields great scientific discoveries; works of penetrating art and literature; or transcendent tantric achievements. Yet Karkata-1 pays a price of permanent inner turmoil.
Despite his wealth this native will suffer all the self-destructive instincts which accompany any lagnesha in 8th-house - but so much stronger when lagnesha is Chandra, lord of the psycho-mental field. This birth is outwardly fortunate; internally disastrous.
Remedial Ratna for Chandra
Moti = pure natural Pearl
"For the Cancer Ascendant,
For Karkata-1 of this Ascendant,
The Pearl will ensure good health and long life.
It will make life smooth, free from mental disturbances and will improve finances."
Vidyapthi-5+ karmesha-10 = Yogakaraka from Karkata lagna
Counted from the karkata lagna, karmesha-10 + vidyapathi-5 Mangala has much power to determine career - both holding authority in public roles and creating sudden upheavals in fixed status which are usually experienced as surprise promotions or sudden new opportunities.
From the baseline of Karkata lagna, yogakaraka Kuja has the power to bring celebrity fame (5) speculative winnings (5) leadership roles (10) and public dignity (10).
From a strictly careerist perspective, Mangala produces the least impeded results when He is located neither 6-nor-8 from bhava-10 and neither 6-nor-8 from bhava-5.
Kuja gives dynamically energetic results in lagna being 4th-from-10th and 9th-from-5th. The native is able to overcome the most impossible challenges - and often must!
nichha-Kuja residing in radical lagna usually gets nichha-bhanga and becomes very beneficial for public recognition (10) through vigorous, self-defending competition in politics and entertainment (5) .
Makes a famous sea captain, industrialist, politician, entertainer, or adventurer.
entertainer, emotionalized jingles and ditties
Problematic in bhava-2 = may be a highly public (10) and energized (Mangala) Teller of Tales who can suit the facts of the world to one's own financial (2) purposes.
Remedial Ratna for Karkata lagna
flawless Red coral = munga
"For the Cancer Ascendant,
If it is worn always by Karkata-1s of this Ascendant
If Red Coral is worn with Pearl, the gem stone of the lord of Cancer ascendant,
The beneficial results will be more pronounced
L-3+ ruler-of-12 from Karkata lagna
Ruling two uncomfortable bhava, Budha is not a beneficial graha for Karkata lagna.
Both day-to-day mentality and the meditative imagination are busy and superficial. The Karka native tends toward shallow, short-term thinking, unless Budha is quite well disposed or there are good occupants in bhava-12.
Can be a graha of business success due to bhava-3's bhavat bhavam signification as a house of self-made treasury . Karkata-1 has natural administrative ability, is generally chatty, and loves to strike up a conversation about any topic.
Especially successful in publications business such as bookstore or media advertising. However the Karkata native is not a philosopher but rather one's mentality is looking for short-term advantage (3) and opportunity for bedroom sanctuary (12) or indulgence of articulated fantasies (12)
bhava-3 is an upachaya house, the results of which improve with time. In middle age and beyond, Karkata-1 may develop good writing skills if Budha is strong.
Remedial Ratna for Karkata lagna
Budha-ratna = Panna = pure Emerald
"For the Cancer Ascendant,
However, if Mercury is in his own sign in the 3rd and 12th
rogesha-6 + dharmesha-9 from Karkata lagna
Ruling both the mega-dushthamsha bhava-6 AND the mega-bhagya sthana bhava-9, Brihaspati gives very mixed results for Karkata lagna.
Generally a graha which rules two bhava will yield the default stronger effects for the bhava of His mulatrikona rashi. Unless there are graha located in bhava-9, Professor Guru's effects may be stronger for bhava-6 Dhanushya.
Like any graha that rules bhava-6 Brihaspati can contribute to marital arguments. Guru can produce permissiveness in regard to breaking or ignore contracts.
If Guru is yuti lagnesha Chandra, Karkata-1 is prone to mix sincere religion with deep corruption
However Guru as rogesha-6 can function as a divorce agent
Guru in bhava-6 loves religious culture, but tends toward ostentatious show of social ceremony. Priestly energy is consumed with caring for the lower classes. Karkata-1 is a sincere humanist who may be a wonderful teacher esp. of the underprivileged, but the circumstances of one's school or temple are full of conflict, illness, and debt.
Overconfidence (similar to nichha-Guru). Overspending on costume, trying to appear of higher rank. Diseases of overeating and misuse of religious funds.
Guru can be an especially challenging graha for Karkata nativities in which Guru = rogesha-6 from both radix lagna (material animosity) and Chandra lagna (emotional imbalance-seeking-a-remedy):
Karkata Chandra + Thula lagna
Vimshottari periods of rogesha-6 +dharmesha-9 Guru = often an end-of-agreement phase in relationships
However the very same period of Guru is often spectacularly good for religious knowledge and spiritual practice.
The best path during a Guru bhukti is nearly always some form of worship, ideally according to a sacred scripture. One will be nourished by attending religious services, practicing in your own home, traveling to holy places, enjoying the company of priests and wise persons, and also taking continuing education classes in your profession.
Although really, with Guru being ruler-of-12 from 10, there is often degradation of the professional status as spiritual priorities make professional ambitious look rather less interesting.
most of the benefits are personal and not professional;
in fact, Guru period is so excellent for global travel that you might find yourself working less and traveling more.
In any case, develop your religious and spiritual intelligence physically, mentally, socially, emotionally, financially (charity tithe) and ritually. It is a splendid time for traveling abroad with those like-minded. Also Guru = karaka for language, therefore for the Karkata lagna periods of Brihaspati reward study of the sacred languages in which the holy scriptures are written.
Depending on characteristics of Brihaspati according to yuti-graha, rashi, drishti. and bhava, Guru Mahadasha for the Karkata radical nativity is generally a period of great health imbalance-seeking-remedy and great theoretical understanding or doctrinal truth.
Guru's mulatrikona being Dhanushya, overall effects of roga-bhava-6 are generally somewhat stronger than the effects of dharmasthana-9.
The pairing of illness and accusation with enlightenment wisdom may seem incongruous. Yet because of the role played by Professor Guru for the Karkata nativity, and the animosity of Guru toward lagnesha Chandra, it is a common experience that physical ailment would accompany the great blessings of spiritual guidance during this 16-year mahadasha.
Remedial Ratna for Karkata lagna
Guru-ratna = yellow sapphire
QUOTATION "For the Cancer Ascendant, Jupiter will be lord of the 6th and 9th houses.
Consequently wearing a yellow sapphire
The results will be more pronounced
If the Jupiter is in the Ascendant
Karkata-1 of this Ascendant can expect more favourable results
bandesha-4 + Vriddhipathi-11 from Karkata lagna
cintamani * mani * money Debt and Finance
Special opportunity for financial gain provided by Zukra dhanakaraka for treasury
Vriddhipathi-11 for economic earnings via marketplace gains and bandesha-4 for wealth via owned properties, shelters, vehicles. If Zukra is well-placed the Karkata native can expect significant wealth in Vimshottari periods of Zukra.
In the nativity of one playing the husband role, Professor Zukra represents those who may play the role of the wife.
She specializes in matters of 4-household + 11-community network. A well-placed Zukra indicates crucial wifely support for career via stabilizing the home (4) + conducting friendly, economically vital social events (11).
As planetary patron of bhava-4 ethnic rhythms, parenting, shelter, cultural roots and owned properties as well as planetary patron of bhava-11 community, economy, gainfulness and friendship, Zukra favors partnership particularly but not limited to marriage.
The partners are friendly by nature, gainful, and often strongly identified with the foundational schooling (4), folk customs and established cultural norms (4) lands (4) and environmental practices of their root culture.
Partners may identify with any gender. They may form both personal and professional contracts. Typically the partners are land-holding (4) persons who are naturally gainful (11) due to being socially and aesthetically well-connected.
From the husband's perspective, a wifely partner (including the "work-wife") is inclined to be aesthetically home-based and environmentally engaged and gainful. Although there are exceptions for nichha-Zukra and Zukra-yuti-Ketu, the Karkata husband tends to marry well. Through the wife, the couple may enjoy an active social network. She may take a strong interest in the children's education to insure their own later income.
Graha yuti Zukra require special consideration.
Example of the nichha-Zukra qualification:
Treasury via Home, Place, Schooling, Belongingness
Zukra is by and large a beneficial graha for Karka lagna, bringing sensual sweetness to the schooling and roots experience of belonging to a place or an ethnic culture (4)
If Zukra's ruler is strong, the wealthy and well-housed native may be attracted (Zukra) to social-community activism (11) particularly with regard to issues of security for the vulnerable and foundational education.
Wealth via socializing, large-scale social-economic networks and gainful market relationships .
Zukra holds an aesthetic of preference for one's homeland (4) and one's socializing network (11). Friends are generally gainful.
|Badhaka -sthana = harming-houses|| |
Badhaka-sthana = Vrishabha
Karkata lagna natives sometimes voice their dislike of bankers and large herders rather vociferously.
Periods of Zukra may bring forward an agent in the figure of a friend, mentor, elder sibling, or marketplace associate - typically a female - who (often inadvertently) causes harm to Karkata-1 via addictive or excessively sensual behavior, obsession with cintamani * mani * money or physical beauty, and generally materialistic values.
This badhaka agent must be handled with compassion, in the knowledge that this harm-causing agent is merely a projection of one's own unrealized attraction to the process of entering into new connections with people and ideas that are deeply sensual and earth-bound in nature.
Difficult graha in occupation of labha bhava or Zukra drishti upon bhava-11 may exacerbate the badhaka agency.
Remedial Ratna for Zukra:
Flawless Diamond (hira) for Karkata Lagna
"For the Cancer Ascendant, Venus will be lord of The 4th and the 11th houses.
Still we feel that the 4th and the 11th are auspicious houses
yuvatipathi-7 + randhresha-8 from Karkata lagna
Shani controls the public experience of marriage and contractual unions for Karkata-1.
As the Lord of Karma, Scarcity-imposing Shanaicarya ensures that the duty roster is heavy and marriage-unions are not easy. Yet, one may rely upon conventional public expectations as a guide to obtaining dignity and approval in the spousal role.
Much discipline and necessity of accepting a lower status of the spouse, who may have strong Shani qualities of either common sense or stubbornness or both.
Spouse tends to be older , and hails from a lower social class than Karkata-1 . Partner enters the marriage already equipped with mature worldview, strong duty orientation, and usually some practical working skills.
However unless Shani is very well placed, the social performance burdens of marriage upon Karkata-1 are distinctively heavy .
The partner's character may be rigid and inflexible , with little room for growth or change in the marriage behaviors."Take it or leave it" is typically the spouse's attitude toward intentional change.
Marriage is burdensome from many perspectives, yet always offering karmic lesson (which are in reality multiple opportunities for accepting of gifts of understanding) If heeded these events grant the gift of realism -- which is always the first step toward enlightenment.
For Karkata-1, the most challenging situations in the union can arise when the chronic neediness and compulsive emotional manipulations of Azlesa lagna characterize the lagna.
Even for Karkata's more self-sufficient Punarvasu and Pushya portions, Karkata-1 will often endure a classic Parashari-defined marriage structure due to Shani-ruled elderly, impecunious, or unsuitable spouse.
Again there are certainly some exceptions that make the karmic burden easier to accept, such as uttama-amza Shani or the highly disciplined and non-sexual Shani-7 which gains dig-bala often transforming marriage into a celibate spiritual practice.
Karka-1 may experience an unusually strong emotional impulse to marry a parental figure in search of shelter, survival, and social dignity.
Remedial Ratna for Karkata Lagna
Blue Sapphire = Nilam = Shani-ratna
"For the Cancer and Leo Ascendants, Saturn will respectively be the lord of the 7th house, of the 8th house,
The 6th and 8th are very inauspicious houses and the 7th is a death inflicting (maraka) house.
The lords of these Ascendants are also enemies of Saturn.
Rahu = co-lord of the dusthamsha bhava-8Kumbha, therefore Rahu-ratna (gomedha) = less benevolent unless Karkata-1 has a specific purpose for enhancing the role of emergencies and sudden, forced changes in one's life.
For normal people with Karkata lagna a Gomedha is beyond consideration and should be completely avoided.
Rahu in either rashi of maraka Shani = dangerous for Karkata lagna. Even for the specialized and rare tantrik targets, the Rahu-ratna should be considered only if the lord of bhava-8 and its occupants are exceptionally auspicious.
Rahu = co-lord of bhava-8 Kumbha, therefore Rahu-ratna * gomedha ** Even for these particular targets, prescribe the Rahu-ratna only if the ruler of bhava-8 and its occupants are unusually comfortable.
Ketu's effects for Karkata lagna depend significantly on Ketu's bhava, rashi, and drishti. Ketu amplifies the effect of any graha who are sharing Ketu's house; and also Ketu magnifies the effects of the lord of His occupied Rashi.
Ketu = co-lord of bhava-5 Vrischika, therefore Ketu-ratna may become a beneficial gem for the Karkata native. Ketu-ratna may be profitable if Karkata-1 is positively involved in politics, theatre, or special services for children (not standard cultural indoctrination of the government schools, but rather something special such as musical skills training or other evocation of individual talent .) However even for these celebratory undertakings in the service of children, politicians, and thespians, the Ketu-ratna should be applied with caution and only if the lord of bhava-5 and its occupants are comfortably placed.
