Chandra in Purvaphalguni

Ruled by sensual Zukra

***


Chandra in Uttaraphalguni * pada-1

Ruled by regal, dramatic, center-seeking Surya

***

Chandra-Simha * 2nd-from-Swakshetra

Needs to accumulate value and maintain the family lineage as focused on genetics of the tribe and the herd, and face-voice-language-history.

Generally maintains a wealth-and-property collecting (2) relationship with parents, and often has an affectionate relationship to one's mother's elder sibling.

Outcome is strikingly different for various radical lagna. For Makara radical lagna the Simha-Chandra-6 signals emotionally motivated stress upon the heart and spine.

Kumbha radical lagna suffers from "moodiness "and conflict in relationships as rogesha in 7th.

For Thula radical lagna, Simha-Chandra-11 may reduce one's outreaching friendliness even while one is the political or dramatic center of an economic network. Otherwise charming, charismatic, and financially privileged.

Emotionally concerned with matters of hoarded valuable goods and conserved knowledge; historical collections; face and hair; language, speech and song; maintenance of the treasury of lineage values.

Very sensitive heart and spine. May experience cardiac and spinal ailments due to performance anxiety and time-pressure stress.

  • emotional need to be the unique, splendid, bright center of attention in center-stage or at the brightly lit top of the mountain.

Emotional affinity for top of the mountain = high places, peak experience, brilliant entertainment, political empowerment, celebrity events, summit meetings, royal enthronement

  • emotionally seeks high bright places , either physically or socially

wants to be in the eye of environment: mountain peak, center of the party, glittering political-celebrity figure, focus of the gaze

  • can be condescending

  • anger management skills required


"Needs admiration ".

As a reflection of the Sun, Chandra in Simha needs to be noticed, to be welcomed, to be praised for brilliant and life-affirming truth . One flourishes in environments where one receives and generates plenty of attention.

Emotional affinity for entertainments and amusements; theatre and politics; glamour, costume, pomp and circumstance.

With Chandra in Simha, one's goal is to direct the attention of the audience to some variety of Great Ideal.

  • POTUS-36 Great Society Lyndon B. Johnson *

  • 14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso * Global Kindness

  • Japan-Emperor1901-1989 Showa Hirohito * Imperial Divinity

  • Material Girl 1958- Madonna * Freedom from Organized Religion

  • Way of Zen 1915-1973 radio philosopher Alan Watts yuti Ketu * ego-free living

  • USA Sen-MA 1962-2009 Teddy Kennedy * social participation in economic systems, access to healthcare and education, integration of marginalized populations

One needs to feel the warm, appreciative, applauding love of those who can perceive the presence of divine intelligence in the native, knowing that the native is simply of reflection of this brilliance not the source of it.


When this native looks in the mirror, one sees a Monarch; a giver of blessing, peace, and prosperity; and an authoritative, elegant, and charismatic leader. Fundamental drive is to provide ceremonial leadership to their people.

Serves as an icon of moral, aesthetic, and rational living. Actual success (or not) in holding a respected, celebrated, emulated position in their world (however big or small that world might be) depends on the health of Surya.


If Surya = swakshetra * Simha or uttama-amza * Mesha, the native may achieve celebrity status at some level, usually via association with a Great Ideal.

Surya should generally be strong as a prerequisite to notoriety or fame in the nativities of most public figures.

  • Hearst Newspapers 1863-1951 plutocrat William Randolph Hearst * perhaps worse notoriety due to his empathy disorder (likely narcissistic personality disorder) yet indeed a brightly famous, legendary figure. His mother was a major socialite philanthropist and her legacy also continues nearly a century after her death.

When Chandra occupies Simha rashi, Surya's power to call attention to the native's appearance, visibility * darshana is further heightened.

  • Material Girl 1958- Madonna * Surya parivartamsha Chandra (very strong) * entertainer, writer

  • Japan-Emperor1901-1989 Showa Hirohito

  • 14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso * Surya-Mithunaya lagna + Budha (very strong)

  • Runaway Bride 1967- drama-commerce Julia Roberts * Surya parivartamsha Zukra (quite strong)

  • Way of Zen 1915-1973 radio philosopher Alan Watts * Surya in Surya-ruled Purva-azadha (moderately strong)

One might be the most politically idealistic member of the peer group; the most creative , beloved Scout leader in the state; the most popular philosophy professor in the university; or the sharpest young executive director in the company.

Delights to participate in ceremonies; receiving and giving awards and prizes; holding their scepter; wearing magnificent raiment... (just kidding - but these folks really do dress for success.)


If you have a Simha-Soma person in your life, be sure to give them plenty of admiring attention -- and a generous clothing budget. If they don't receive positive attention, they can easily start working to get negative attention. Just as true of a lover as it is of a child, parent, co-worker, or boss.

Try to reinforce their moral intelligence and praise them for putting the needs of their people :) before their own. Model for them the true aristocratic attitude, which treats everyone with full respect.

surya_dahlia.jpg
Chandra * rules 12th-from-Chandra

Significant difficulty in bonding with the family and its properties. Emotionally dominating father. Sensitive imagination surging with emotionally overcharged memories of past events.

Highly acquisitive materially due to 2nd-from-swakshetra. although the acquisitive instincts can be focused on either lineage knowledge hoards or financial wealthhoards.

Emotionally suspicious on the 2/12 angle and expects to derive security from family-based wealth. However, relationship with the family culture fluctuates greatly. More influenced by the father (Surya) from whom the native seeks emotional protection that is often not forthcoming due to the impact of dissolving 12th. Prone to ego-membrane disorder due to lack of conscious contact with one's own emotional reality (because it is invisible in the 12th-from).

A well place Surya can be very helpful. However Simha Chandra in dushthamsha (6, 8, or 12) can be exceptionally difficult due to emotional self-alienation or self-ignorance. Potential to contain profound internal anger beneath a veneer of Simha confidence.

Predisposition toward emotionally based (rage) sleep disorders (12) as well as emotional instability caused by a fluctuating (Chandra) internal set of values (2). May face significant ebb-and-flow financially due to uncertainty about the definition of core values or inability to prioritize.

Thrives in the highest mountains (Simha) and in places of glittering entertainments, royal glamour, and golden political power.

Marriage and Qualities of the Life-Partner

Contractual Partnerships and Trusts

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

7th from Simha-Chandra * Kumbha.

The partner * "social-conceptual-political-economic networker; fundraiser-earner; social activist". The Kumbha partner has Shani-influenced qualities of dutifulness and maturity along with a noted economic diligence. The Kumbha-character mate typically has advanced social networking capabilities with a natural instinct for organizing large groups of people toward a common cause. Kumbha is the web-builder and Simha resides at the center of the web.

  • UK-PM 1874-1965 Finest Hour Winston Churchill * Simha Chandra married Clementine Hozier, an inveterate social entertainer. She anchored every phase of his political career with her elite networking skills.

  • UK-PM 1925-2013 Path to Power Margaret Thatcher * Simha Chandra married a well-connected businessman and expert fundraiser. He bankrolled her early political campaigns with his own funds and those of like-minded supporters. As her political success increased, so did his ability to generate funding via his ever-more linked community.

  • Material Girl 1958- Madonna * Simha Chandra married the noted social activist Sean Penn. Mr. Penn * himself a dramatist but over the course of his career his social progressive activism became more prominent.

Parenting * Chandra-Simha

OurLadyChina_RCath.jpg

Our Lady of China - Roman Catholic Icon

The Simha-Chandra parent wants children to be bright, admired, entitled with rights, and politically empowered.

5th-from-SImha * Dhanushya

  • Humanistic philosophy and global viewpoint.

  • Child * generous , inclusive personality + strong bond with teachers.

  • Professors, preachers, pandits, and priests, as well as the father and father-figures, are beneficial for this child.

Difficult Angles:

6th-from-Chandra = Makara

emotional conflict * 6th-from Simha * disagreement-distrust-dispute-divorce * Makara

  • Simha-Chandra is a confident, bright royal figure who has emotional conflict with darkly rigid social laws and restrictive hierarchies.

  • Government bureaucrats and bitter, petty, or legalistic people can pinch their (perceived) genius.

problematic 6th-from-Chandra * rashi of Makara

Graha in Makara represent emotional adversaries

rogesha-6 +yuvatipathi-7 Shani * Chandra Simha implicitly feels conditions of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy. May feel annoyed and upset with agents of Makara:

  • bureaucrats, regulators, the government and government officials, social hierarchies and their regulators, statutory law , ordered environments, procedures, rules and limitations generally;

  • The Simha-Chandra lifetime is easier if Makara rashi has no tenant graha..

6th-from-Chandra = Makara

  • Whichever bhava = Makara as measured from radix, one will feel unbalanced or uneasy in that bhava.

  • E.g., for a Simha Chandra with Kumbha radix lagna, Makara becomes bhava-12, and one experiences discomfort and imbalance-seeking-a-remedy in foreign lands and the private bedroom. One's own imagination becomes adversarial. Depending on Shani's character, it is likely that the experiences of long sojourn in foreign lands, mediation and prayer; and bedroom activities like sleeping and private affairs, are fraught with imbalance-seeking-a-remedy and internal conflict.

Shani Adversarial-Agents of Limitations and Restrictions

Especially during Shani periods but in general throughout life,"agents of the social order" may appear in oppressive roles. Shani-agents tend to be sober and hardworking with a rather dour, with clay-like personalities and a systematic method of working. Shani-agents are socially responsible and attuned to the masses of common folk. Typically rather grumpy and taciturn, Shani agents are also pragmatic, sensible, and lawfully oriented to the lowest common denominator. Time and work define their reality. Must"earn" their survival. Occasionally during periods of Shani, the behavior of these Shani-agents may develop abusive qualities due to their hyper-fixity and firm resistance to change. Look to the characteristics of Shani in the nativity to discover the full profile of the adversaries. Relief may be obtained via conscious management of emotional expectations.

Relief is however especially challenging to obtain in the case of Kumbha radical lagna combined with Simha Chandra, because the adversarial agent Shani is also in this case the self-defining lagnesha.

Predisposition to Injury and Accident in periods of Shani. Simha Chandra is somewhat prone to injury from rocks and stone. Bone damage and disease.

  • 14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso * lifetime adversary * Chinese government

  • USA-Sen-Mass 1932-2009 Teddy Kennedy * his family (2) in govt service + govt inquiry into the death (2) of his lover-assistant . 6th-from-Chandra contains Shani-Makara

  • Material Girl 1958- Madonna * Malawi government, adoption troubles adversarial to motherhood (Chandra)

6th-from-Chandra * Professor Shani rashi Makara

Surya vs Shani * bitter enemies. This shad-ashtaka 6-8 angle from Simha Chandra = particularly difficult. There can be some serious emotional attacks from the accusations of government officials and supposedly legitimate governing authorities.

national government apparatus and social rule of law (Makara) * somewhat inimical to one 's healthy emotional identity


Shani Makara - governments

Simha-Chandra is a confident, kingly figure who has emotional conflict with rigid social laws and restrictive hierarchies. Governments (Shani) pinch their genius.

Adversaries * agents of Makara

  • legislators, regulators, bureaucrats, governments, social hierarchies, elite power structures,

  • conformism, statutory law , karmic law, crime and punishment, law-enforcers, government officers

  • stones, bones, cold, dark, windy places; darkest blue color

12th-from-Chandra = Karkata

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

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

  • all things Karkata 12th from Simha: parents and parenting, the Old and Customary Ways, property ownership, vehicles and shelters, schooling, nourishment,

from Simha-Chandra, randhresha-8 = Meena ruled by Guru friend of lagnesha Surya

The emotional core (Chandra) = oriented to intelligent self-expression and royal confidence . One can withstand significant identity upheaval due to Guru-caused ego-destruction and rebirth. The compassionate wisdom induced by meditation and spiritual guidance is easily absorbed into the reconstituted sense of Divine Self..

16-year long Vimshottari periods of Guru = conditions of sudden emotional identity change induced by wisdom-teachings, children, world travel, religious knowledge

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

Sade Saati special results for Chandra-Simha

Shani rules 6 and 7 from Simha

When Shani functioning as planetary patron of 6th-from-Chandra transits radical Chandra-Simha, considering that Shani is an arch-enemy of both Surya planetary patron of Simha and Chandra, the effects are often deeply emotionally adversarial, physically toxic, and socially litigious.

6th-from Chandra-Simha = Shani-ruled Makara-rashi.

Brilliant, unique, super-hot Professor Surya, planetary patron of Chandra-Simha, sees cold, dark, conformist, one-law-for-all Professor Shani as Surya's adhi-shatru-graha * arch-enemy.

When Samchara Shani enters dramatic, political Simha, law-imposing Shani is fearful of Light and punitive toward Simha's celebrity, intelligence, creativity, and uniqueness.

Suffering fear, Shanaicarya the Survivalist tries to oppress the attention-needy Chandra-Simha native via threats of punishment against those who would shine too brightly and not conform to the dark, cold, uniform social order.

To make matters worse, society-based, emotionless Shani sees family-based, empathetic Chandrama as a shatru-graha * enemy.

Therefore Shani's once-every-29.3-years Sade Saati via Simha rashi can be quite miserable."No rest for the weary" is often the emotional result of much social conformity pressure whilst one feels deprived of even minimal emotional support. Emotional turmoil sustains for 2.3 years.

The most acute emotional deprivation is felt in the subject-matter environment of Chandra's occupied bhava. (Exempli gratia, if Chandra-Simha-7, the impact is mainly upon relationships. If Chandra-Simha-4, upon the parents and homeland. If Chandra-Simha-11, upon the friendships and economic earnings.)

Agents of the Sade Saati emotional repression are often Shani-folk such as bureaucrats, regulators, judges, underclass, commoners, as well as institutions, economic systems, and Fear Itself.

Individual special case:Simha-Chandra in bhava- 2 + Shani-Makara-7

Frozen into an invisible marriage

Shani in Bhava-7 gains dig-bala * dignity yet it is naturally problematic for marriage when Chandra occupies-2.

Shani-7 implies unyielding fidelity to the marriage contract despite any possible adversarial qualities of the spouse.

  • Shani in Bhava-7 knows with certainty that this rigid-minded and often judgmental spouse will not change. There is no expectation of change. Therefore in general no energy is wasted upon developing improvements in marital balance. The relationship agreement is frozen in place.

  • Due to profile for partnership for Chandra-2, the spouse remains masked or hidden (8), involved perhaps with secret undertakings, working in a surgery or covered therapeutic setting, working a hidden environment, or simply not participating in the visible social routines. The marriage-mate does not provide an escort to the native, not appearing at public functions etc. One may attend most public events entirely alone and seem unmarried to the public. Nevertheless one is beholden to the marriage vow.

  • The same karma exists essentially for all of the other advisers and counselors of Shani in Bhava-7. Peer-advisors, attorneys, counselors tend to be rather taciturn, saturnine, cold, and unforgiving. Yet Shani is at home in swakshetra Makara where He behaves properly according to social expectations of lawful governance and performance of public duty.

The troubles inherent in Shani-7 can often improve with maturity as one comes to appreciate that the Simha-Chandra indeed does not prefer to share the limelight. The situation is benefiting Chandra's desire to be in the center of attention.

Badhaka = 9th from Simha-Chandra = Mesha Badhaka -sthana = harming-houses

Mangala = badhesha

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 Guru 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.

MALES

Chandra in Simha Rashi

  • Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra .p 183

"These persons are courageous and generous to a fault. They are leaders and make wonderful executives. They have a commanding manner.

They use this to the point of arrogance, but they are condescendingly kind and generous in a grand manner for their subordinates when they wish to be so.

They are quite selfish, however, and their generosity is often prompted by self-interest, except when it is extended to those they love.

They have the knack and power to influence other people, and the personality to mold opinion. They are positive and fixed in their ideas, somewhat conceited, and showy, and love to be the center of attraction .

They are not conventional but rather bohemian in their mode of living, not caring what society thinks of their actions. The mere fact that they do a certain thing makes it all right and they do not easily brook criticism. They have a fearless frank independent nature, quick to take offense but just as quick to forgive.

They prefer to have their own business and failing this, they are usually found at the head of someone else's business. Put them in any subordinate position and they will soon rise from the ranks to a position of authority and responsibility.

In a male chart, Leo is one of the most fortunate signs for the Moon to be in at birth. In appearance, they are rather tall, but if short they give the impression of height because they stand erect with chest out and head thrown back. Broad of chest, and wide of forehead. large chins and mouths, fair complexion, large heads.

On the whole, they are very healthy and optimistic but easily angered. Their appetites are keen, and they are great meat eaters. They will have few, if any, children. Their fortunate gem is the Ruby, and the most favorable day is Sunday."

FEMALES

Chandra in Simha Rashi

  • Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 197
"In appearance, these women are rather attractive. They usually have fair complexions, wide and generous features, big round eyes.Height above medium with rather large bones and bodily structure.

They are generous, independent, and jolly, although easily offended or hurt, and if offended or slighted are apt to be jealous and vindictive.

While they do not talk very much, they have fiery tempers and can be rather robust and boisterous in their epithets when aroused to anger.

They are essentially carnivorous in the matter of food and love to eat and drink. They are proud and somewhat arrogant to those whom they consider their inferiors, but are generous and free-handed to their equals and associates.

They are not at all religious, but live from day to day, fully and joyously, with no particular thought for the future. They take their greatest pleasure from being alive and able to satisfy their physical cravings. At times, as if in eagerness to get away from the common herd, they like to go away alone and stay in solitary places.

They are sincere, frank and open in their contacts with other people and do not know the meaning of the word subterfuge. They may marry, but if so will have few or no children.

They prefer an independent career and must be ruler in the household .

This does not contribute to happiness in the married state, although these women are affectionate and passionate and as long as they love the partner they will deem"all well lost for love."

Chandra Mahadasha

for Chandra in Sinha Rashi

  • Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 234

"Not a good period for the health of the individual.

Sickness is likely to be a serious handicap to general welfare and must be avoided by extra care and precaution if possible, since otherwise this period presents opportunities for progress, especially financially.

Business affairs will prosper and promotion in position, increase in trade, or success in a professional career will be found to come easily and with little effort. The individual will receive the r espect and admiration of his associates."

Saravali , Ch. 23, Shloka 30

"If the Moon is in Leo, one

  • will have sturdy bones, sparse hair, wide face, small and yellowish eyes,

will hate women,

  • will suffer from hunger and thirst,

  • will incur stomach disorders and tooth-decay,

will eat flesh,

  • be charitable,

  • harsh,

will have few sons,

  • will seek sexual union in forests and hills,

be respectfully disposed to his mother,

will have broad chest,

  • be valorous, dutiful

  • and will have majestic looks."
