Chandra-Thula * 4th-from-Swakshetra
Because the ruler of Mesha rashi = 7th-from-Chandra -Thula = Professor Mangala who sees Chandra as a mitragraha * Good Friend, the harmonizing and balancing Chandra-Taula may experience psycho-muscular compatibility with life-partner-1. The pair often share a similar energy of sexual comforts.
Needs to anchor a home foundation and create a rhythmic emotional routine. Generally maintains a caretaking, secure (4) relationship toward parents (Chandra). Often has an affectionate relationship to the mother's land and people; intuitively an environmentalist. Due to emotional sensitivity to conditions of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy, aesthetic harmony in the home is essential. Typically conflict situations are"re-arranged" rather than resolved. thus there are numerous "elephants in the room".
Frequently the caretaker for elderly parents. Not generally an easy relationship to one's father however.
Chandra-Thula-8 for the Meena radical lagna may experience perpetual emotional crisis.
Deep subconscious patterns of adjusting, re-arranging, repositioning, accommodating. Emotionally needs to be a bargainer, broker, and deal-maker . Yet one may be so needy and repetitive (Chandra) in negotiation behavior that the target state of balance is inadvertently sabotaged.
If Chandra-yuti-Rahu, may be truly compulsive in deal-making.
"Bred for balancing." Soma-Thula establishes emotional security via the activity of arranging settlements and agreements.
When Soma-Thula looks in the mirror, one sees a mediator, a crafter of alliances, a maker of contracts, designer of agreements.
Soma-Thula feels that a soothing, comfort-enhancing approach to peer-to-peer and group-to-group relationships presents an ongoing opportunity for the native to establish a sense of security and belonging.
So, one keeps doing it. (Chandra, rhythms)
Deeply satisfied in the rhythmic cycles of decorating and re-decorating the home.
If Chandra-yuti-Rahu, may be ambitious for ocean-going vehicles such as sailboats, and land acquisitions
Deeply satisfied in the rhythmic cycles of arranging and re-arranging music (Zukra) to find the perfect balance (Thula).
The emotional expectation is not that conflicts will be permanently resolved, but rather that social harmony can be produced via one's own emotional flexibility and willingness to compromise-- at least on the surface.
Soma-Thula's usual method of achieving a daily harmony in relationships is to suppress their own dissenting opinion; and thus the imbalance is sown deeper into the fabric of the relationship.
Naturally with this method, after a period of detente, suppressed discord is likely to re-sprout.
Chandra = an enemy of Professor Zukra; habitual, settled Soma is not comfortable in the ever-negotiating, ever-adjusting Thula rashi. The internal emotional mechanism by which Chandra-Thula folks is quite fragile and easy to upset.
One's fundamental drive is to provide methods of achieving balance and harmony, in both moral and aesthetic worlds. Thus, a well-balanced color palette is just as important to as a well-argued legal case.
Actual success (or not) in promoting justice, fairness, and equity in this world (in addition to pleasing musical harmonies and soothing color schemes) depends on the vitality of Zukra.
If Zukra = swakshetra * Vrishabha, Thula, or uttama-amza *Meena, one may feel pleasantly well-balanced in emotional attitude and appearance.
However, Chandra is an enemy of Professor Zukra.
If the Thula-Chandra is combined with Zukra-Vrishabha or Zukra-Meena, one may be exceptionally musically and/or artistically gifted. Yet one may spend most of the balancing, smoothing, harmonizing energies trying to achieve internal agreements between the internal shad-ashtakya 6/8 angles.
Only when Zukra and Soma both occupy Thula may one find an easy path toward a naturally balanced social-emotional harmony .
Architecture is often a favorite career, because its professionals must find agreement between many social and aesthetic demands on how to design and use a human space.
If you have a Thula-Soma person in your life, be sure to appreciate the intensely important role of artistic design. Consult them when making color choices, particularly if you share living quarters!
Fairness is critically important to Thula-Soma. Honor their sensitivity. Even if you don't think all those little details are important - they do. They will work with you to balance macro and micro, because they strive always for functional agreement.
B.V. Raman says in 300 Important Combinations , p 304:
"when the Moon in Libra is aspected by Mars or Saturn, the native is supposed to become cruel."...
from NASA http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130404.html M64: The Black Eye Galaxy * Image Credit & Copyright : Martin Pugh "Explanation: This beautiful, bright, spiral galaxy is Messier 64, often called the Black Eye Galaxy or the Sleeping Beauty Galaxy for its heavy-lidded appearance in telescopic views. M64 is about 17 million light-years distant in the otherwise well-groomed northern constellation Coma Berenices. In fact, the Red Eye Galaxy might also be an appropriate moniker in this colorful composition of narrow and wideband images. The enormous dust clouds obscuring the near-side of M64's central region are laced with the telltale reddish glow of hydrogen associated with star forming regions. But they are not this galaxy's only peculiar feature. Observations show that M64 is actually composed of two concentric, counter-rotating systems of stars, one in the inner 3,000 light-years and another extending to about 40,000 light-years and rotating in the opposite direction. The dusty eye and bizarre rotation is likely the result of a billion year old merger of two different galaxies."
Contractual Partnerships and Trusts
7th from Thula-Chandra = Mesha.
Partner qualities = "first and foremost" a pioneer, innovator, champion, first-arriver.
The life-mate tends to be primarily concerned concerned with use of the flesh-body for making movement and enjoyment of the appearance. Mesha strives to be first. Fashion models, athletes, warriors, hunters, dramatic actors with dynamic energetic muscular qualities, drivers and turners, folks with strong bodies generally, comprise the Mesha profile.
Mesha is a fiery, independent, pro-active and potentially aggressive rashi. Mesha energy favors frequent movement such as house-moves and dancing, competitive lifestyle, innovative engineering, and championship events.
POTUS-33 Trial and Hope 1884-1972 Harry Truman 's Chandra-Thula is opposed by a very bright uttama-Surya-7. Spouse-7 is inevitably an equal partner, peer adviser, and counselor. Bess campaigned and entertained like any political wife, but uttama-Surya is distinctively independent and elitist. In the nativity of a husband, uttama-Surya-7 may represent a wife who thinks highly (uttama) of herself and asserts her space.
when Chandra occupies Thula rashi, Chandra owns the 10th from His bhava of residence = Karkata.
Chandra-Thula typically enjoys a strong public career in one of the parenting, caretaking, school-teaching, lands ownership-stewardship, marine industry, or gardening professions. Also can be defensive-protective professions such as homeland security or police.
The public respects one's caretaking behavior, and in general one is regarded as a model parent.
Vimshottari dasha periods and sub-periods of Chandra bring respectful, validating attention to one's public leadership service in the specialty areas of nurturing and protecting.
Parenting = Chandra-Thula
Chandra-Thula's parenting style = engaging the children in balanced and harmonious behaviors, providing a world of politeness and grace, with frequent opportunities to resolve conflicts diplomatically.
The Chandra-Thula parent wants to provide one's children with the negotiating skills to resolve differences by locating points of mutual agreement, to function optimally in contractual relationships, to be a trustworthy partner, to be cooperative, attractive, and pleasant , to enjoy the social benefits of alliances. Chandra-Thula above all wants "nice", well-behaved children.
4th-from-Thula = Makara, which suggests a parenting preference for publically visible and respectable family arrangements. Often the parents are professionalized (Makara). They may hold dignified public roles and are predominantly identified with their careers.
5th-from-Thula = Kumbha
| || |
For the Thula-Chandra native, Kanya -related matters create a nutrient drain (12th-from) which can siphon the emotional vitality during any Vimshottari period of Chandra.
Energy-drainers = emotional losses and erosion of identity + vital life-force power =
6th from Thula = disagreement-distrust-dispute-divorce = Meena
problematic 6th-from-Chandra= rashi of Meena
Graha in Thula represent emotional adversaries
rogesha-6 +bhratrupathi-3 Guru = Thula-Chandra implicitly conditions of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy. May feel annoyed and upset with:
The animosity and frustration is deeply embedded because Guru rules two dushthamsha; however 3 and 6 are both upachaya bhava; the pre-programmed reaction will diminish with emotional maturity and the passage of time.
The place which is 6th-from-Chandra
Whichever bhava = Meena as measured from radix, one will feel unbalanced or uneasy in that bhava.
Predisposition to Injury and Accident
Since Guru and Zukra are both subha-graha (benefics) and religious Guru sees materialistic Zukra as an enemy, but Zukra sees Guru as a neutral, this shad-ashtaka 6-8 angle is more difficult in regard to finer choices like choosing how to express one's religious values, and not so crippling emotionally.
However in the reverse case of Dhanushya Chandra really disliking the 6th-from Zukra-ruled Vrishabha sensuality, the conflict is much more strong.
Thula-Chandra has some conflict with the inner spiritual path, often wrestling with the portent of private guidance and prayer. Most of the emotional trouble comes from trying to balance two lives: one fleshly life in the birth place and one in a prayerful, distant or imaginative land.
Adversaries = agents of Meena
for a wife: husbands who are distant or who hail from distant lands; husbands with private relationships
for a student: guides and teachers who live in distant lands,
the imagination, private spiritual imagery
agents of the imagination such as musicians and painters; mediations
private conduct in the bedroom and cloistered enclosures
forces of dissolution, dreaminess, loss of identity with the flesh-body, fading away, internalization and withdrawal from social identity due to prayerfulness or enclosure in hospital or prison
foreign agents in career
For the Thula nativity, Guru carries agency of expectations of animosity and accusations (6) as well as advertising, marketing, and media-publications (3). Brihaspati's other characteristics including karaka roles and location are important elements of Professor Guru's narrative.
randhresha-8 = lagnesha Zukra
emotional core (Chandra) = to negotiation of terms and rebalancing therefore this native can withstand significant upheaval during 20-year long periods of Zukra
Zukra = conditions of sudden emotional identity change induced by secret sweets which can include delights of alcohol, intimate relationships, marriage and alliances, contracts and expectations of promise-fulfillment, women, beauty, music, arts and design, seeking harmony,
Details of the circumstances of the catastrophic change are indicated by the rashi and bhava of Zukra. Exempli gratia,
For Thula and Meena lagna, Zukra = also randhresha-8 from lagna - therefore periods of Zukra are doubly challenging for nativites which feature combinations of Thula and Meena
Surya = badhesha

Chandra in Thula Rashi
Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 185
| "Intelligent, rather happy-go-lucky persons, who are inclined to let the world go by, not disturb them. |
At times this attitude leads to laziness and shiftlessness, yet they are charming people to know and, if forced to by circumstances, they will apply themselves conscientiously and agreeably.
Whatever their lot, they will never grumble or find fault, but if things get too much for them, will quietly get out of the way, avoiding dispute wherever possible.
They are never mean or vicious and are kindly in their thoughts of others, resenting criticism of themselves, working on the axiom "You mind your business and I'll mind mine."
They are attractive to the opposite sex and because of their amiability, may find themselves in rather complicated situations at times, since they have very romantic natures.
Their relatives and friends are quite likely to impose on their good nature, and may do so up to a certain point, but past that point these persons suddenly become difficult. They are very extravagant , fond of clothes and luxuries of all kinds .
While they appear frank and open, and even ingenuous , they are really quite secretive about their affairs and it is quite difficult to really know them or get on real terms of intimacy.
They are fond of the arts and are usually well-educated. They are inordinately fond of music , dancing and entertainment. The theatre has a great attraction for them, and many will be found on the stage.
They are susceptible to skin diseases, caused from over-indulgence in delicacies of the table, and should be more moderate in this respect.
They are honest in business, but somewhat involved in their moral and social outlook, with the ability to slide out of difficult situations with an agility which to others might appear to border on dishonesty.
Their motives. however, are usually good and they could give sound and adequate reasons for their actions if they cared to. Their tendency is, however, to avoid the real explanations and only if pushed will they ever reveal their real motives.
They are usually of dark complexion, moderate height, and have soft voices. They should live in large cities rather than in the country, for they are cosmopolitan and somewhat bohemian in their tastes.
The gem which they should wear is the Diamond and Friday is their fortunate day."
Chandra in Thula Rashi
| "Usually these women possess dark magnetic eyes set in dark faces, almost oriental in appearance. Occasionally, however, the conjunction of some other planet will result in a fair complexion, but the shape of the face is always towards the aquiline with long nose, regular features and rather a delicate skin spoiled quite frequently by skin eruptions or acne. |
These women have good morals, are romantic, sociable, fond of perfumes and ornaments, yet not particularly careful as to dress, although in all other things they are orderly and neat.
They are very impulsive and hasty in thought and action, creatures of emotion rather than reason , affectionate, alluring in speech with low pleasing tones to the voice. While they are careless in attire, they are scrupulously clean in person and orderly in their surroundings.
They are somewhat selfish and very secretive.
Since they are agreeable on the surface, even though they may be antagonistic within, they are deemed insincere, although their motives are to avoid offending or hurting other people. They agree to avoid argument and to avoid annoying, but they may think the opposite to that which they profess.
These women nearly always marry, and make intelligent and helpful partners. If they have independent careers, they will usually be found in educational activities as they make good teachers and are philosophically inclined.
The kidneys and generative organs are weak, and illness usually results from these sources."
| Chandra Mahadasha |
for Chandra in Thula Rashi
| "He lives in hopes during this period, seeming not to be able to complete anything, or to be continually frustrated in everything he undertakes. |
Association with the opposite sex may take on the color of intrigue and unless he is particularly cautious will lead to open scandal.
He is liable to find himself the victim of some racket which uses a woman as a decoy, and may have to pay blackmail in the form of coin or services which are unworthy.
Keep to the straight and narrow path is the best advice to those living in this period."
