Surya = material gains + social achievements

Double-trouble from Surya:

+ Surya Vriddhipathi-11 = enemy of lagnesha Zukra

+ Surya Vriddhipathi-11 = enemy of Shani the natural 11th lord

For Thula, especially during the major Vimshottari periods of Surya, problematic persons and behaviors include:

  • Father, patriarchy, kings and royalty, politics and politicians, theatre and entertainers, celebrities and 'stars', gamblers and gaming, speculative ventures , ego-bright personalities, the self-righteous, and males in general

Father * Surya = pitri-karaka

Father is related to matters of bhava-11 including community activism, social-participation organizations, economic systems, income, earnings, friendship networks, distributive and associative linkages. Father tends to have a distinctive economic agency whether "successful" or whether only aspiring.

Marketplace earnings, networks of friendly association, the elder sibling or father's brothers

Surya Vriddhipathi-11 = enemy of Shani the natural 11th lord

  • Selfishness or autocratic behavior causes trouble in relationship to marketplace earnings, friendly networks, the elder sibling or father's brothers

Independent earnings (Surya) may seem too bright, too individualized, or legally inconsistent with the marketplace rules (Shani).

Vriddhipathi-11 Surya is materially gainful. While the native is better suited to independent earning methods than to fixed institutional salary systems, in general the earnings are modest and do not attract negative attention unless they suddenly get big and bright.

Despite a normally modest income, Thula-1 is generally advised to prevent their earnings from becoming politicized or attracting too much attention (Surya).

Labha bhava = dissolution of privacy (12th from 12th). Thula-1 in big-ego politics will almost inevitably have the social propriety of one's income called into question.

Surya = Radiation and focus of attention

Center-stage Roles

  • Because Surya = center-stage recognition, Vriddhipathi-11 Surya = prefers visible roles in realms related to labha-sthana, such as community associations, economic networks, systems development, fundraising, social participation movements, electrification and computerization, social-material and financial connectivity, creating linkages between groups such as cross-cultural exchanges.


Computer system, the economic policy committee, the switchboard, the mass assembly, and one-to-many (Surya-to-Kumbha) settings such as the large lecture hall where Surya takes the attention of the assembled audience. However due to the nature of the web that has no center 11th-amsha, Vriddhipathi-11 Surya = best as a hub of connectivity rather than as a constant center of authority.

Therefore the best environments are very large networks within which bright-light Surya moves along the linkages whilst conferring political, intelligent, dramatic, and literary empowerments.

Surya = radiation and attention. Surya = the Central Hub of the wheel, which hub radiates its strength into the spokes that move the outer rim. There is a Sun-star at the center of every universe.

Vriddhipathi-11 = a many-to-many exchange relationship such as a human marketplace or an electronic network.

When Surya = vriddhipati-11 , with strength e.g., in swakshetra Simha-11, or uttama Mesha-7, Surya's creates a distinctively powerful one-to-many relationship wherein the native becomes a central figure who maintains a large network of diplomatic (Thula) associations.

Normally Vriddhipathi-11 Surya = constrained by Thula's balancing agenda and Shani's lawful orderliness. Therefore even when Surya becomes empowered during Surya mahadasha or energizing transits, one becomes neither autocratic nor selfish nor addicted to the applause.

The Thula nativity with strong Vriddhipathi-11 Surya = one who = a central figure in their network

  • = distinctively cautious regarding the force of gSuryaty (lowest common denominator) in large-group systems (Shani).

  • = also leery of distraction and corruption by wealth (Zukra).

This double constraint upon Surya contributes in no small measure to the notable public service success record of Thula nativities.

  • One receives considerable public attention throughout life. However, the attention may have positive or negative consequences, depending on drishti to Surya. For example with unfortunate drishti, the native could become a sort of a negative idol or a scapegoat .

  • Except possibly during Vimshottari periods of the shy and retiring ruler-of-12 Budha, Thula-lagna will never be a wallflower.

Throughout Thula-1's lifetime, periods of Vriddhipathi-11 Surya will facilitate

  • achievement of social-material goals

  • and development of the social network.

Typically, Surya bhukti are usually rather stressful due to the natural tension between

  • Splendid Surya's confident, regal, self-promoting creativity

  • Sober Shani's grumpy, lawful, status-conscious, class-hierarchy conformism.

Surya bhukti are materially gainful, thus the experience is validating both socially and via increased marketplace income.

Yet as an enemy of lagnesha Zukra = dhanakaraka for treasury

Splendid Surya generally produces less marketplace income than might be expected for the intelligent and well-educated Thula native. One may develop an excellent professional career and develop many types of worth both social and spiritual; however the total income will be lesser than normal compared to others with similar educational level and same broad scope of social connection.

Surya = karaka for divine intelligence as the seed of self, self-development, creative brilliance, and regal entitlements.

  • As vriddhipati-11 , Surya controls goal-setting, achievements, earnings in the marketplace, networking with friends, associates, and those who share a conceptual ideology (network of ideas); and of course all of the electro-magnetic device networks in the world of communications, science and engineering.

Bhava-11 = swabhava of Shani

11 = upa-chchaya = improvement of the material results over time;

  • therefore Surya will need more than half of the lifetime to show His best results.

Presuming that Sparkling Surya is well-disposed, the native is highly selective regarding one's inner circle of friends. As an associate member of a variety of interconnected large groups and assemblies

one is recognized and admired by many; yet a regal aura of exclusiveness and a preference for friends with high entitlements (Simha) will prevail.

Surya functions as a mentor within the networks, taking a regally authoritative yet encouraging role. (Simha = courage; Mithunaya = skill)

Vimshottari periods of Surya Vriddhipathi-11 = gainful for Thula-1.

Vimshottari Dasha periods of Surya are gainful bringing marketplace income and obtainment of social-material goals

  • Surya bhukti also favor hiking in the hills and other travel by foot toward the tops of high mountains.

Vriddhipati Surya shines a brilliant light into the network of friends, energizing the circuitry of ideas, and connectivity at all levels.

One achieves one's goals with the help of willing associates. Fundraising, personal profit in the marketplace, enjoyment of the company of friends in a large assembly, and apprehension of the interconnectedness of all things are included in the range of experience of Surya bhukti for Thula-1.

Sparkling Surya must be strong

by rashi, drishti, association, and bhava in order to give full results. Surya will also rule one houses vis--vis Chandra. Assess the characteristics of Surya's house, from Chandra lagna, for a fuller appreciation of Surya bhukti . Badhaka -sthana (so-called) harmful houses

Surya badhesha
  • Vriddhipathi-11 Surya is capable of causing harm through (usually inadvertent) ego-motivated dominating behavior, or imposing the personal willpower upon the will of others, especially during process of setting and achieving goals (11).

  • Alternatively, Surya bhukti can generate an agent, usually male, usually in the figure of an elder-brother, business mentor, or senior-associate type, who is a member of one's social or conceptual network. This agent may manifest an ego disorder or display excessive or domineering willfulness,

  • The agent thereby blocks one's ability to act upon one's own intention or to realize one's own goals .

  • Surya is also an enemy of lagnesha Zukra, which exacerbates the identity-assertion conflict. Surya bhukti may be successful in many ways but the quality of ego-collision and feeling rather oppressed by the typical male figure will also be noticed.

As a karaka, Professor Surya is one of the karaka-agents for public distinction, recognizability, and in a general sense Career

By rulership, Surya indicates economic gains, marketplace associations and community networks of friendship

Vriddhipathi-11 Surya = a karaka for career and public recognition

  • Thula-1 = somewhat disposed toward to accept public roles and professional leadership responsibilities within large, rule-driven systems (11) and large groups assembled in voluntary but purposeful association (11) .

Example environments that extend the social network and produce economic gain:

  • broad-based social networks, any type of 'community' or common-purpose association, "NGO" principled social activism, electro-magnetic device networks (e.g. internet, scientific data networks) or extensively linked marketplace associations.

Center Stage

Vriddhipathi-11 Surya

nichha-Surya in bhava-1 typically but not always gets nichha-bhanga. A natural center-stage placement using the bright image of the self to achieve goals in community development, marketplace earnings, economics, electronic connectivity and social networks

Surya in bhava-2 Vrizchika = a natural center-stage placement using the bright image of the self to achieve goals via treasuries of financial well-being and lineage knowledge; food and drink; family history

  • 52nd Dai, Dawoodi Bohra 1915-2014 Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin + Guru + Mangala + Budha-yuti-Rahu. The Syedna appealed deeply to the values tradition of the proletarian masses, while raising the intelligence (Surya) of the community (Kumbha).

Surya in bhava-3 Dhanushya = a natural center-stage placement using the bright image of the self to achieve goals via self-owned commercial business in sales, advertising, marketing, publication, media-messaging . The business is associated with the bright image of the self, such as a photo of the owner.

Surya in bhava-4 Makara = a natural center-stage placement using the bright image of the self to achieve goals via the bright image of the self in patriotism, parenting, sheltering, boundaries-borders-fences; homes, properties, caretaking, folk customs and established cultural norms and modes of transport

Surya in bhava-5 * swabhava * Kumbha = a natural center-stage placement using the bright image of the self to achieve goals using the bright image of the self in theatre, politics, fashion, children, games and gambling, royalty whilst appealing to the masses and the classes (Kumbha = plebiscite)

Surya in bhava-6 meena = a natural center-stage placement using the bright image of the self to achieve goals via criminal activities, ministries of service, medicine, military, legal defense, , servitude

uttama-Surya in bhava-7 Mesha = the force of Will = a natural center-stage placement using the bright image of the self to achieve goals via diplomatic agreements, balancing, bargains , contracts, negotiation, yokes, promises, trust, troth

Surya in bhava-8 Vrishabha = a natural center-stage placement using the bright image of the self to achieve goals via secrecy, occult, hidden resources:

  • USA Sec-State, Natl Security Adviser 1969-1977 Henry Kissinger

Surya in bhava-9 Mithunaya = a natural center-stage placement using the bright image of the self to achieve goals via political ideology, sacred doctrine, academic philosophy, economic globalism

Surya in bhava-10 * dig-bala Karkata = a natural, very high visibility center-stage placement using the bright image of the self to achieve goals via institutional leadership, corporate directives, social ordering. In Karkata: customary, rhythmic, home-based Folkways.

Surya in bhava-11 swakshetraSimha = a natural center-stage placement using the bright image of the self to achieve goals via community outreach, missionary work, charismatic and iconic roles within"a web that has no center" (11 lateral-link distribution networks)

Surya in bhava-12 Kanya = a natural center-stage placement using the bright image of the self to achieve goals via interpretive research, spiritual community work, pilgrimage, and distant travel

Vitality, Social Personality and Physical Appearance

as planetary patron of 11th-from-radix lagna, Surya is a gainful and social graha for the Thula lagna native.

11th-from- lagna = charismatic, willful response to networking and goal achievement. the native is publicly perceived to be well-connected socially and, if other factors conspire, well-connected conceptually through possession of philosophical, scientific, and cosmological understanding.

Periods of Surya bring goal achievement and emphasis on strong-willed and egocentric personalities who are players in one's social network. Qualities of the masculine, bright, self-directed persons in the network read according to the characteristics of Surya.

Malefic graha occupying or ruling an upachaya bhava tend to give better results with acquisition of moral maturity and the passage of time. Should bhava-11 receive drishti of Shani, quite a bit of time (decades) = required to reach one's material goals; however success will indeed occur for Thula natives if Surya is well disposed.

Education, belongingness, and properties

Ruler of 8th-from-4th and 4th-from-8th, Professor Surya enforces sudden transformations in one's relationship to the childhood home, folkways, ancient customs and established cultural norms, foundational schooling, and ownership of property.

8th-from-4th = Thula lagna indicates a life plan to use the personal independent will-power, Surya, as a primary tool to transform the childlike attachments to protected shelters whether emotional, physical, cultural, or mental.

Surya challenges the conventional upbringing by projecting the native into A large marketplace (11) of mingled people, goods, and ideas.

In the inter-networked circles of thought including the world of rational science, the native 's perspective emerges from parochial to global.

Surya bhukti bring transformation of the shelter space (buildings, houses, schools, vehicles) such as additions, renovations and redecorating.

as planetary patron of both 10th-from-2nd and 2nd-from-10th, Surya's leadership capability is pronounced in areas of banking and finance, collections and records, history and languages. Some component of the career (Surya) is concerned with organizing collections and hoards.

  • 10th-from-2nd = on the basis of the values of the family history, banking and finance, collections and records, history and languages, Thula pursues social validation through acceptance of decision-making positions.

Recognition achieved through one's ability to create an orderly environment in knowledge collections of all kinds, as well as leadership on the basis of speeches and proclamations (2). If Surya and dhanapati-2 are strong, the native may be a charismatic genius of documentation and setting up record-keeping systems.

as ruler of 5th-from-7th and 7th-from-5th, Surya is a charismatic, intelligent, speculative agent who brings amusement and entertainment into the environment of contractual, partnered agreements. Periods of Surya encourage Thula-1to enjoy the romantic aspect of relationships.

  • 5th-from-7th = On the basis of relationships, both intimate and professional, the native projects a series of political, theatrical, or literary campaigns.

  • Despite other negative factors which may be present, Surya's intelligent charm may bring much romance into marriage.

  • Disposition of Surya indicates the spouse's attitude and expectations toward children.

  • If Surya is problematic e.g., Surya-yuti-Rahu ) Surya bhukti could indicate a spate of spousal gambling.

family history, Acquisition of cintamani * mani * money and Knowledge

as planetary patron of 10th-from-2nd And 2nd-from-10th, Surya generates leadership ability based on the historic values lineage of the family history.

  • 10th-from-2nd = on the basis of one's wealth, knowledge, and historic family lineage values, Surya bhukti bring Artha development (2 and 10 are both Artha bhava), vis-a-vis the family history and within the second marriage if any.

  • Acquisitive and hoarding behaviors are streamlined, so that the native acquires only the resources which promote social approval and develop the native 's ability to create orderly social environments. Social organizational knowledge is developed through Surya, typically on rational basis such as studies in sociology, economics, or human psychology.

    If Surya (karmesha-10 from 2) and Chandra (dharmesha-9 from 2) are even modestly well disposed, Thula natives are generally quite effective in leadership roles, due in part to the values basis established in the family lineage (2).

Siblings, Teamwork, Communication, Publications

  • 9th-from-3rd

  • 3rd-from-9th

as ruler of confident, self-assertive Surya gives Thula-1 a fatherly role in sibling relationships, a somewhat imperious or paternalistic role in daily communications with the work-group, a charismatic style of narrative discourse, and willful intent to make announcements and publications.

9th-from-3rd =on the basis of sibling, small-group and team interactions, the native generates environments of wisdom, seniority, And moral certainty.

Highly personalized and egocentric style in administrative roles, where apparently simple and routine matters in the business office quickly become a platform for the display of personal intelligence. The communicative environment is permeated with gamesmanship and political excitement.

Surya may be good for writing Autobiographies and political analysis. In social settings where communicative routine and protocol are paramount (such as the classic office environment) the native may be perceived as "high maintenance", charming but needing a good deal of attention, disinterested in protocol and therefore somewhat unreliable, wise, and authoritative.

Although well-liked in general, radical Thula nativities with Surya-ruled labhasthana-11 are generally too focused on intelligent achievement of personal goals (11) to be a consistently regular hierarchy boss. Team player prognosis is improved if Surya is somewhat weakened within the nativity which can reduce the brilliance of personal goal achievement. When Surya is strong, Thula is wise to follow the motto: "Make your success also the success of others".

Children and Divine Creativity

Ruling 7th-from-5th and 5th-from-7th, Surya represents the spouses of one's children as a group, and the spouse of the eldest child in particular.

  • 7th-from-5th = on the basis of charisma, speculative intelligence, children, and royal entitlements, the native projects a partnering and negotiating intelligence into relationships with politicians, children, creative artists, and game-players of all varieties.

For Thula radical lagna, periods of Surya may signal

  • marriage of the eldest child;

  • new contracts and agreements with speculators and game-players

  • new partnerships with brilliant, romantic, flamboyant, privileged, or celebrity persons;

  • balance established through negotiation amidst ongoing contests and games

Conflict, imbalance-seeking-a-remedy, Disease, Debt

as planetary patron of 6th-from-6th and 8th-from-6th, Surya gives a difficult, demanding, transformative, and even enslaving relationship to persons who live in a state of conflict. One's earnings (11) will be at least partly derived from unpaid or underpaid service to the suffering.

  • 6th-from-6th = on the basis of the practice of medicine, human services ministry, and Seva offered to persons and nations which suffer from a chronic state of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy, Thula natives will make a profit! (11)

  • Surya obliges Thula-1 to earn on the basis of willful (Surya) service (6) to the weak, the underappreciated, the exploited, the marginalized, the sick, and the criminal-minded. One becomes a slave or the slaves, A servant of the servants, in order to generate gains of income and obtain social goals. Service to the victimized classes forms the essential foundation of Thula's Ability to earn wealth (11) and claim lifetime achievements.

  • Thula-1 who mistakenly refuses to accept humble jobs, serve the poor and sick, or comingle with the exploited and dispossessed, shall have no basis upon which to achieve one's step-wise lifetime objectives nor to earn much materially.

  • The Thula lagna native's early wage-earning activities are often quite humble. Common labor such as serving food and cleaning, manual"grunt work", and jobs dealing with human filth or misery will often provide the entry level work experience for Thula natives. They will not stay there but they must start there. Even those who ultimately rise to great power (as Thulaoften does) will recall underpaid service work or charitable volunteer work with the needy classes, as the basis for their later income.

    Labha bhava = marketplace revenues = 6th-from-6th. For anyone (not just Thula!) one fast route to empowerment toward earning a large income (11) or toward achieving exalted goals for the betterment of one's social community (11) or to the achievement of nearly any major life goal (11) is to offer unpaid service (6) to persons who are poor, sick, disfigured, disagreeable, conflicted, war-torn, criticized, and otherwise unbalanced (6).

    For Thula, the graha which shows the nature of the gains achieved, on the basis of human service ministries, is Surya. If Surya is strong by rashi (Mesha, Simha, Vrischika) or by placement (in kendra) or through a parivartamsha or other extraordinary yoga, Thula-1 may exhibit spectacular and brilliant gains in this life.

Sudden, Transformative Change

as ruler of both 4th-from-8th and 8th-from-4th, Surya becomes an educator who can parlay occult information and secrets into the public consciousness. The frightening threat of sudden change is made understandable to the people through the patriotic (4) and parental (4) care of Thula educators.

  • 4th-from-8th = sudden emergence of the unknown into life's stable patterns is what makes bhava-8 such a scary place. Thula can take violent, mysterious, or death-threatening knowledge and package that information in a way that is acceptable for conventional consumption.

  • For example, Gandhi was able to educate the public on some of the most ancient secrets (8) of tantrik philosophy by putting mysterious knowledge of atman and satya into conventional language with a practical domestic (4) goal.

Wisdom Teachings and Teachers

as planetary patron of 3rd-from-9th and 9th-from-3rd, Chandra brings saturation with religious and moral instruction received in the temple, expressed in the fulfillment of leadership which creates an orderly social environment.

  • 3rd-from-9th = on the basis of wisdom teaching acquired from spiritual or religious study, Thula-1 = positioned to explain, announce, and advertise higher truth in a popular and conversational (3) style.

  • Financially, Surya provides a good influence on the Thula nativity. 3rd-from is an angle of self-made treasuries , therefore on the basis of one's religious knowledge (which does not have to arise from an orthodox tradition, may be quite independently gained) one is able to publish, write, and communicate about higher truth for a profit.

Networks of Friendship, Goals Achievement, and Gains of Income

as ruler of 11th-from-radix lagna, Surya promotes the ego-personality within one's network of social and conceptual associations. So long as Surya is reasonably well disposed, Thula-1 is naturally friendly and confident in social settings.

Other factors may contribute to an ego-membrane style that is studious, reflective, deeply patriotic, or beset with some chronic problem - yet despite other karma, Thula-1 is always friendly, and nearly always quite confident in dealing with large groups of the assembly.

1st-from-11th = on the basis of membership in established social and conceptual networks, the native assumes an egalitarian (11) role in the marketplace of goods and ideas.

Thula natives are prone toward progressive social thought and idealistic views on the advance of human civilization. There is a deep humanistic equality in Thula's understanding of networks.

Yet as Surya rules the connectivity bhava-11, one may function socially similar to earth's Sun in our solar system * Ra. The network position of the native is admittedly a small part of a very large network, yet one may be perceived as the radiant center of one what matters locally ... one's own little section of a fringe galaxy.

The Willpower is strong to organize social movements.

If both Chandra (karmesha-10 for social recognition) And Surya are empowered, the native can become an iconic leader who combines the large-group affiliation of 11 with the elite executive authority of 10.

Spirit Guides, Dreams, Prayer, and Sanctuary Life

as planetary patron of 12th-from-12th, Surya dissolves loss (12) thereby creating gain (11) from intuition and psychic perception (12).

  • 12th-from-12th = Activity on the astral plane, transactions of the subconscious, reflective thought, and constant background communication with beings who do not currently use bodies (such as ancestors) can take a tremendous energy toll on most incarnate humans. Thula natives are definitely human, but matters of bhava-12 are more conscious and less dissolving for Thula than for most.

  • Thula = conscious in the act of prayer, conscious in dreaming, and also Thula tends to gain measurably from extended journeys in foreign lands.

  • Surya does, however, indicate the dissolution of sleep due to keeping the midnight oil burningas the native works overtime to achieve one's goals.

Thula-1 should take care when wearing the Surya-ratna, due to the natural animosity between badhesha Surya and Zukra, and also the upachaya nature of bhava-11. Preconditions for success with the Manika stone include:

Chronological maturity . bhava-11 does not yield comfortable results until after the first Shani return, after age 31.

Surya must possess strength in a favorable rashi and bhava. OK = Vrischika-2, Mesha-7, Karkata-10, Simha-11.

Surya should not control via possession of the highest degree in the rashi, another uncomfortable graha in His residential house. To strengthen Surya in this case is to also strengthen the"lieutenant" graha who takes direction from the superior Surya.


  • Surya not yuti with L-3+rogesha-6 Guru

  • Surya not yuti with the ruler-of-12 Budha

  • Surya not yuti with His natural enemy the randhresha-8 Zukra .

Dr. Kapoor (below) does mention the natural animosity of Surya and Zukra, but he suggests that Surya's potential to increase earnings (which is true) is perhaps more important in material life than any smaller conflicts.

Remedial Ratna for Surya * Manika * pure Ruby

from ~~ Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology . Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 89

"For the Libra (Thula) Ascendant,

  • the Sun as ruler of the 11th is the enemy of Venus and the lord of the Ascendant.

  • the native of this Ascendant can always wear a Ruby when there is loss of wealth or when there are obstructions in acquisition of wealth on account of ill disposition or affliction of the Sun in any way.

  • If the Sun is in his own sign , the wearing of Ruby will make the native very fortunate and he will become wealthy, famous, honoured and will own conveyances and property.

  • The wearing of Ruby will also improve his health and longevity.

The beneficial results will be more apparent during the major period and sub-periods of Sun."

Chandra = karmesha-10

  • measured from Thula lagna, Thula Chandra ,

    for purpose of evaluating partnerships, can be measured from Thula-Vanika navamsha


Chandra = Leadership capabilities and Public Approval

Chandra rules bhava-10, granting a particularly intuitive understanding and ability for matters of governance roles, executive decision-making, social policy, rule-based systems, maintenance of the social order

Thula lagna nativities need (Chandra) to have a public, visible, recognized, professionalized, governance or regulatory role in their society.

Thula will devote great emotional healing energy to the tasks of parenting, school-teaching, care of the weak and vulnerable, protection of the ancestral cultural values of a people *if* their work is honored and a place of respect is provided for these sensitive natives.

Any bhava is workable for Thula's profession so long as a publicly recognized work space, executive powers, and a dignified title are conferred.

Even the dushthamsha positions of Chandra are workable for the Thula native. Thus, Chandra-6 nevertheless occupies the wisdom-teaching 9th-from-10th. Chandra-8 nevertheless occupies the gainful 11th-from-10th. Chandra-12 occupies the communicative, messaging, evangelical 3rd-from-10th.

A foundational insight in the understanding of Thula nativities is to appreciate the emotional needs of karmesha-10 Chandra.

As karmapathi, Chandra instills an emotional need for public dignity of Soma's habitually protective, stabilizing behaviors.

In order to feel stable, grounded, and rooted in life, one must receive respectful acknowledgement of the social importance of one's ________. This recognition should be provided by the elite levels of an institutional hierarchy. Professional recognition is required for emotional worth.

The content of ________ is determined by Chandra's bhava, rashi, and incoming drishti, as well as the gradually cycling relationships between Chandra and the current mahadasha-pathi.

For example,

  • Chandra-4 = respectful acknowledgement of protection of the root culture, land-and-vehicles ownership, school-teaching,
  • Chandra-6 = respectful acknowledgement of protection of the ill or disenfranchised, and all ministries of service
  • Chandra-12 = respectful acknowledgement of intuitive perception, privacy, invisibility, and protection of sanctuaries

Mahadasha of Chandra = typically a period of maximum professional recognition in social ordering , executive leadership and governance roles.

In a more domestic nativity, however,"leadership" may take the form of reliable and consistent parental role modeling within the family home or in local community role like schoolteaching or policing. The role for which one needs to be recognized does not have to be glamorous or high-titled; in fact, Chandra prefers to move in the rhythm of the local environment.

Chandra karmesha-10 = natural capability to lead and govern , to make decisions which provide social order and lawfulness with special emphasis upon matters of :

  • home and homeland, folkways customs and established cultural norms and ways one's people live upon the land, property ownership, houses and schools, farms and fisheries, parenting and protection of the weak, physical-emotional security and groundedness in a fixed place.

  • generally the leadership style features parental qualities of protectiveness, emotional sensitivity, nurturing, and deeply rooted patriotism

Mahadasha of Chandra = era of the maximum public visibility

  • for a person with overall private and home-centered nativity, the 10 years of Chandra Mahadasha may signify an exceptionally strong engagement with public organizations such as church-temple, children's school, or charitable group

  • for a person with an overall public-service oriented nativity, in particular when karma bhava contains leadership seeking, responsibility-bearing graha, the Soma Mahadasha predicts 10 years of relentlessly high public exposure.

  • Factors of putra-bhava (bhava-5, lord of 5, 5th from Chandra, 5th and 11th navamsha, etc) predict fame

  • Factors of bhava 10 suggest public responsibilities, obligation to provide a lawful and reliable environment for social ordering - weighty effort but not glittering fame at all, unless the 10th bhava contains some very significant graha

Double-trouble from Chandra:

+ Chandra karmesha-10 = enemy of lagnesha Zukra

+ Chandra karmesha-10 = enemy of Shani the natural 11th lord

For Thula, especially during the periods of Chandra, problematic persons and behaviors include:

  • Mother, matriarchy, home owners and homeland defenders, patriotic actions and feelings, schools and schoolteachers, vehicles including boats and airplanes, marine environments, caretakers and nurturers, shelters and security, and Feminine Nativities in general

Chandra = karmesha-10 = Thula natives often develop career responsibilities associated with patriotism, schooling, promotion of folkways, ancient customs, established cultural norms, national practices, home and homeland, shelter and protection, marine life and mother-child welfare.

  • More than any other rashi-lagna, Thula lagna and to some extent Thula Chandra indicate that the caretaking, parenting, the teaching of folk customs and established cultural norms, and other defensive-protective roles are parlayed out of the traditional home location and into higher visibility of professional, official, social-regulation duties.

  • Thula women virtually all have careers.

Naturally, the placement of Chandra in the nativity wields a powerful influence upon career, and periods of Chandra will reflect the specific traits of that bhava-rashi environment which contains the impressionable, reflective karmesha-10 for Thula.

During periods of Chandra, the native occupies a highly visible rank or professional position that is instrumental in imposing an orderly environment in one's society.

  • The hierarchy upon which one holds a top-ranked status may range from a humble home to a great nation. Whatever the scope of the social order which one regulates, whether a parent in charge of children or the president of a nation, the period of Chandra will maximize the executive authority.

  • Depending on the nature of Chandra+ karmesha-10 job description could range from president, prime minister, tribal chief, manager, executive director, or supervisor to team captain, headmaster, schoolteacher or parent.

The key factor is that one becomes the locus of social regulation and one is authorized to apply various laws and policies to others. If Chandra is naturally strong in the nativity, one may be a police officer who issues "tickets ", a judge who delivers "sentences "; a schoolteacher who marks "grades " or a government official who gives "approvals ".

The highly fluctuating and impressionable Chandra rules bhava-10 for leadership responsibilities, prestige and public respect, and one's ability to create and manage an orderly environment in society. Chandra's condition will determine the quality of law-and-order as well as systematic promotion through the ranks of leadership within one's profession al life.

Mahadasha of Chandra indicates 10 years of parenting, protecting, sheltering, securing, and educating function.

The nature of career leadership skill is dictated largely by the lord of 10th navamsha, and the motivation for choosing and maintaining a particular profession will be known via the bhava and rashi of Chandra. The relationship between lord of the 10th navamsha and Chandra, evaluated within the radix, is also predictive.

Chandra can focus Thula's career upon

  • sheltering, vehicles (moving shelters) home-making,

protecting home and homeland

Periods of karmesha-10 Chandra may bring intensification of the need to acquire and maintain a dignified and respected social position.

The authority figures, bosses, and social leaders in life will tend to be women, beginning with mother and grandmother and continuing through female schoolteachers and well into the business environment.

For both genders, presuming Chandra is in good condition, many opportunities for leadership in this life are provided through basic caretaking and nurturing functions.

the native may become CEO of a gigantic corporation which serves the needs of women and children; one may become a beloved school teacher or administrator serving parents and families; or one may be professionally associated with products of the ocean.

Depending on Chandra's house, female bosses will be either good or bad influences. Chandra in a dusthamsha gives trouble from women in positions of authority. In other bhava = generally a harmonious effect which allows one to balance parenting and professional responsibilities with good structure.

Career, Ability to Govern, Creating an Orderly Environment

planetary patron of both 10th-from-radix lagna, Chandra is a supreme career graha for the Thula lagna native.

  • 10th-from- lagna = empathetic response to public responsibilities and leadership roles. the native is publicly perceived to be intuitive and emotionally responsive.

  • The success or failure of the response will be known from the character of the Moon.

  • In chronological maturity (10), or during periods of Chandra, the career responsibilities become quite substantial, and the native is socially recognized.

Chandra in 6 for Thula lagna

  • Chandra in 6 for Thula lagna will dislike one's job (10), be professionally underappreciated or disliked, be argumentative in the professional discourse, and move from one exploitive workplace to the next, until age 50.

  • (The salary or other income is not affected by karmesha-10 but is controlled by Vriddhipathi-11 Surya; being disliked or mistrusted one may still earn well if Surya is strong)

  • After age 50, the Chandra Lagna gains superior strength, and from the Chandra Lagna, the Moon occupies the horizon. After age 50, the bhava occupied by Chandra as counted from the lagna becomes increasingly less important.

  • Chandra becomes lagnesha-1 in 1 after age 50, and the career difficulties posed by natal karmesha-10 in 6 will be washed away by the tides of time. planned misalignments requiring realignment attention will have unfolded and the required attention was devoted to re-establishing balance. Job done.

Education, belongingness, and properties

as ruler of 7th-from-4th, Chandra is a provider of nurturing support in matters of education and property.

  • span 7th-from-4th = Thula forms advising and consulting relationships with teachers, parents, patriotic citizens, land owners, and other staunch members of the guardian class. Their advice is generally supportive, depending as always on the character of sensitive Chandra.

Vitality, Social Personality and Physical Appearance

as planetary patron of both 10th-from-1st and 1st-from-10th, Chandra brings an innate leadership capability to Thula-1. One is born in a state of leadership to some degree, perhaps by being the eldest child, or gifted in school, or other early opportunities to assume executive roles.

  • 10th-from-1st = on the basis of one's own body and vitality, pursuit of social validation through decision-making positions. Recognition and enforcement of an orderly environment via the social personality.

Marriage, Partnership; Peer and Advising Relationships as ruler of 4th-from-7th and 7th-from-4th, Chandra is a stabilizing, conservative and educational agent who brings the folk customs and established cultural norms of the spouse's people into public prominence.

  • 4th-from-7th = attention to ownership, lands and vehicles, education and sheltering in relationships, both intimate and professional.

family history, Acquisition of Money and Knowledge

as planetary patron of 9th-from-2nd, Chandra generates wisdom and sacred teachings through the historic values lineage of the family history. Financially, Chandra is a favorable graha.

  • 9th-from-2nd = on the basis of one's wealth, knowledge, and historic family lineage values, Chandra bhukti bring Artha development (2 and 10 are both Artha bhava), vis-a-vis the family history and within the second marriage if any.

  • Acquisitive and hoarding behaviors are streamlined, so that the native acquires the best quality of material resources and importantly does not acquire things which are not needed. Religious knowledge is developed through Chandra, typically on an intuitive and very personalized basis. Yet, dogmatic teachings are also available and may be useful via Chandra's role as karmesha-10 and even strict orthodoxy is not rejected by permeable Soma.

Siblings, Teamwork, Communication, Publications

as ruler of 8th-from-3rd And 3rd-from-8th, Chandra has a deleterious effect on sibling relationships, daily communications with the work-group, narrative discourse, and publications for the Thula lagna native.

  • 8th-from-3rd =on the basis of sibling, small-group and team interactions, the native generates environments of sudden and catastrophic change. Minimal tolerance for mental boredom. Search for occult interpretation of the banal.

    Significant instability in administrative roles, where apparently simple and routine matters in the business office quickly become affected by hidden information. The communicative environment is permeated with innuendo and intrigue.

    Chandra may be good for writing mystery novels. Chandra is definitely good for occult understanding of the apparently mundane daily realities of life. Chandra is not good for holding lower-level functionary jobs. In environments where communicative routine and protocol are paramount values, the native may be perceived as a"loose cannon", manipulative and emotionally unstable.

Children and Divine Creativity

as planetary patron of 6th-from-5th and 5th-from-6th, Chandra is a difficult influence upon children and expressions of divine intelligence and creativity. Chandra's strength in the Thula nativity is based in His ability to create orderly environments such as governments and institutional structures. Naturally, children and creative chaos hold an adversarial role in regard to the large, tightly regulated systems of karma bhava.

  • 6rd-from-5th = on the basis of charisma, speculative intelligence, children, and royal entitlements, the native projects conflict and imbalance-seeking-a-remedy into the public management role. One with significant leadership or iconic recognition will typically choose to have very few children, and those few produced will (according to the character of Chandra) always be perceived as a conflict with other duties of career.

  • Periods of Chandra within the Thula nativity may signal illness, social imbalance-seeking-a-remedy, or debt for one's children. If Chandra is well-disposed, the debt is small and the illness is minor. (These karmic events may be important learning curves for the children.)

  • Periods of Chandra also indicate exaggeration of the natural conflict between individuality and personal intelligence (5) vs. the public need for its iconic figures to conform to the law. Thula-1will typically be associated with lawful, highly regulated environments such as large corporations or government institutions during Chandra bhukti s. There is much respect, but no divas Allowed.

Conflict, Imbalance, Disease, Debt

as ruler of 5th-from-6th and 6th-from-5th, Chandra provides the Thula lagna native with servants and employees who bring fortune and personal creativity in support of one's governing duties.

5th-from-6th = relationships with physicians, social workers, servants, employees, and members of the marginalized classes including refugees, criminals, the dispossessed, chronically ill and addicted persons, will form the basis of a creative strategy for leadership. One helps the underclass and is kind to animals. Appreciation and applause from the underserved classes will contribute to the native 's positive public reputation and empowerment to make decisions affecting the downstream.

Sudden, Transformative Change

as planetary patron of both 3rd-from-8th and 8th-from-3rd, Chandra creates a mental fascination with occult information and secrets which may eventually propel the native to write about magical and tantrik practices, tantrik healing traditions, and other"hidden" sources of knowledge.

This is a very difficult juxtaposition because the mundane daily communication mind (3) is bound to the transformative, exotic, magical mind (8). the native may not be trusted by small work groups that bond through intensely repetitive and superficial routines. In severe cases (for example a nichha Chandra) one may be falsely accused of crimes or even tried for insanity, due to one's mental and verbal ability to pronounce the unseen, if the Moon is is especially difficult condition.

Normally however one is impatient of talking about the mundane, and instead prefers deep and transformative conversation. Shocking information is not problematic and in fact is solicited. Thus Thula-1does well in professional roles where access to and processing of confidential information in part of the job.

  • 3rd-from-8th = publication or announcement of hidden, magical, tantrik, secret, or confidential materials. Interest in alchemy and magic. Gifted in the articulation of spells and curses, healing recipes and esoteric formulae. May have knowledge of superstitious practices and the ability to manipulate the fears of others, particularly one can stimulate and manipulate the human fear of change. Lifetime interest in occult knowledge. Methods and degree of publication of this information depend on the bhratrupathi-3 and randhresha-8 .

Wisdom Teachings and Teachers

as ruler of 2nd-from-9th, Chandra brings saturation with religious and moral instruction received in the temple, expressed in the fulfillment of leadership which creates an orderly social environment.

  • 2nd-from-9th = on the basis of wisdom teaching acquired from childhood, Thula-1is aware of the principles of orderly social relation. and the philosophy of law. Through iconic public roles and large scale role-modeling, Thula-1 manifests sacred teachings through public service in executive and law-issuing capacity.

  • Financially, Chandra = 2nd-from-9th and 9th-from-2nd . As 2nd-from-9th, Soma indicates savings and hoards derived from university education, temple teachings, world travel, and one's own father. As 9th-from-2nd, family affluence and values forms the basis of the child's religious education. If Chandra is well-disposed, Thula-1receives a very good religious and moral upbringing.

    Vimshottari dasha periods of Chandra can signal the death (2) of the father (9) however in practice it is more likely that 2nd-from-Surya or 7th-from-Surya will likely have agency of timing the father's Earthbody-Exit.

Networks of Friendship, Goals Achievement, and Gains of Income

as planetary patron of 12th-from-11th, Chandra dissolves the larger network of social and conceptual associations, exhausts the resources available to develop new connections, and drains away the income. Naturally, the time demands of high-profile social leadership roles (e.g., president of a nation, manager of a business) are enormous, and the native is thereby deprived of the time or energy that would be needed to develop one's own presence in the marketplace of goods and ideas.

  • 12th-from-11th = on the basis of membership in established social and conceptual networks, the native takes positions of power which are less distributed across the larger group (11) and more concentrated in the hands of the smaller executive elite (10). Taking iconic and exclusive social regulatory positions deprives the native of one's freedom to mix and mingle socially.

    Top leadership positions are highly constrained. One's every thought, purchase, or conversation are tightly managed by the protocols of leadership. During the period of holding directive rank, the native will not be free to socialize in an egalitarian style and frequently will not earn much income. Prestige, yes. Prestige as a basis for future gains of income, yes. However during periods of karmesha-10 , one's relationship to the marketplace is dissolved, and financial income is flat or drops.

Spirit Guides, Dreams, Prayer, and Sanctuary Life

as ruler of 11th-from-12th and 12th-from-11th, Chandra generates gain (11) from intuition and psychic perception (12). Natives in positions of social responsibility often do not have the leisure to long reflect or delay their decisions until a complete set of rational information is available.

A good deal of trust is publicly invested in the native 's character and personal judgment, and decisions must frequently be made on an intuitive basis.

The fruits (11) of one's dreams and intuitive pattern-recognition skills are manifest through Chandra, and these will blossom to the fullest extent during major Vimshottari periods of the Moon.

  • 11th-from-12th = eruptive, forced changes in the astral world of dreams and intuitive perceptions. Hidden information emerges regarding foreign lands and matters of the private bedroom. Sudden breakthrough in meditation or reflective prayer.

In the Thula nativity, Chandra rules bhava-10 visibility, suggesting that one's own mother typically enjoys a visible public career.

Details of her profession may be found in the bhava and other characteristics of Chandra. In general, this working mother has a significant relationship to the larger institutions and social-ordering structures which lie outside her roles within the family.

Mom is the first role model in the native 's developing professional identity. Typically, one's own career follows similar patterns to the mother's.

Chandra in bhava-1 Thula = the self-image, mother's career in symbolic imagery or iconic representation, a figurehead, a customary or lawful authority. Often the mother's primary purpose in society is to promote the native to positions of social recognition.

Chandra in bhava-2 Vrizchika = the assets, mother's career in song, eyes, teeth, face, languages, voice, history, storage, banking or collections-of-values management (art, music, knowledge libraries)

Chandra in bhava-3 Dhanushya = the message, mother's career in daily talking, communications with neighbors and work-groups, reports and announcements; evangelism; general commerce

Chandra in bhava-4 Makara-Draco = the land, ethnicity, mother's career at home, school-teacher, real estate, police, vehicles, national defense, farming, elder care, shelters, licensing, property ownership and management.

Chandra in bhava-6 Meena = the service; mother's career in servitude, clinical medicine, health sciences, military, social work, human services ministry

Chandra in bhava-7 Mesha = the contract; mother's career = counselor, advocate, bargaining, negotiations, deal-maker, brokerage, match-maker, pairing, partnerships, forming and maintaining peer-to-peer social relationships, contracts, equities, attorney

Chandra in bhava-8 Vrishabha = the secrets; a dicey placement. Mother's career in management of hidden information, confidences, secrets, surgery, deep healing, transformations. Often, the mother is so traumatized that she is emotionally unavailable. Chandra-8 may become a great healer based on the experience of trying to extract nurturing from one's traumatized mother. If the mother is functional (a surgeon, healer, midwife) Chandra-8 may receive a direct tantrik healing transmission from her.

Chandra in bhava-9 Mithunaya = the doctrine; mother's career in preaching, university teaching, temple priest, principles of philosophy; wisdom-knowledge.

Chandra in bhava-10 Karkata = the rules; mother's career in symbolic-iconic representation, a figurehead, lawful authority. The mother may be an agent of discipline and social regulation.

  • Bello Gallico 101-44 BCE Julius Caesar + Surya-yuti-Zukra * his mother hailed from an elite Roman family, and her diligent support aided in his promotion to Emperor

Chandra in bhava-11 Simha = the social distribution network; mother's career in fundraising, goal-setting, socialite, networking

Chandra in bhava-12 Kanya = the private sanctuary; mother's career in hospitals, enclosures, camps, monasteries, studio seclusion, fantasies, foreign lands

Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology . Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 93

Remedial Ratna for Chandra - Mukta (moti, pure natural Pearl) for Thula lagna:

"For the Libra Ascendant,

Moon rules 10th house .

  • Moon is not a friend of Venus, the lord of the Ascendant, but wearing of a Pearl for the native s ascendant brings them name, fame, honours, advancement in sign career and wealth And particularly if the Moon is in his own sign in the 10th, when it gives rise to a powerful Raja Yoga.

    The results will be more pronounced if the Pearl is worn in the major period of Moon.

  • If Moon is not auspiciously disposed or is afflicted by aspect or conjunction, causing obstruction in the advancement of profession or career, Pearl is the gem stone to remove such evil effects.

It will also give proper equilibrium to the mind ."


Kuja = dhanapati-2 + yuvatipathi-7

  • measured from Thula lagna or Thula Chandra; partner-effects from Thula navamsha

yuvatipathi-7 regulates the interpersonal consulting, advising, marital, and business relationships

dhanapati-2 regulates the family history, face and eyes, speech and song, food and mouth, treasury of valuable goods and knowledge


Kuja = wealth + alliances

Vimshottari Dasha periods of Mangala have a certain compensatory power.

  • dhanapati-2 can energize the Treasury (2) of money and knowledge.

  • yuvatipathi-7 can energize the building of alliances, and connect the native to new advisers such as physicians, attorneys, brokers, etc. The negotiation skills are fueled and sharpened like a fierce warrior's sword.

Family lineage

Due to competitive and vital Mangala's rulership of the house of historical accrual (skanda), Thula natives are typically raised in a family lineage tradition which values competitive ambition, penetrating insight, medical-surgical skills, secrecy, and psychological control.

Mangala = lord of 10th-from-10th. As the site of counseling and professional advising relationships, Yuvati bhava is nearly as influential in governance behaviors as is the karma bhava-10.

Kuja's fast, independent, direct and competitive style, focused on"alpha" dominance and winning, is not always helpful in leadership roles which require more slow-paced and group-oriented movement.

The Thula leaders who benefit most from advising and who can hold diplomatic roles successfully will have some constraint upon Kuja.

Death: fleshly and metaphorical

Nevertheless Mangala brings Lightbody Lift-off. In the earlier years of the Thula nativity, Mangala bhukti typically indicate fleshly death for the mother, father, and other family members. In the later years, Mangala = the sharp scissor which cuts that silver cord linking the spirit into the flesh-body.

Often Kuja's death action = metaphorical, especially in regard to psychological separation from difficult family members and ending of outdated interpersonal relationships. Metaphorical death = one runs ahead, leaving behind the relationship with a friend, lover, business or marital partner, family member or other person.

Mangala signifies a burst of self-directed energy which tells the native to get ahead . Speeding past these outdated relationships (7) one no longer interacts with the former connections. Thus a periods of empowered Mangala can signify the end of a romantic relationship, or a cutting of family ties.

dhanapati-2 Mangala rules the family history. Kuraja the fast-running warrior often has a rather competitive relationship to members of the birth family.

Thula-1 may find oneself rather quickly out-pacing the limits of the original family-culture. Mangala encourages Thula-1 to move forward individually much faster than the whole family group can move together. Thula natives have an overall pattern of"running faster" than the family group.

With no necessary malice aforethought, Thula-1 may bolt forward, leaving a slower-thinking, slower-adapting family far behind as one races toward the winner's line in matters of the treasury of valuable goods and knowledge.

dhanapati-2 Mangala also energizes the mouth. One tends to speak the truth and rather directly too. This behavior itself is often enough to facilitate a split with a family that may not be ready to hear Thula's truth. Mangala bhukti often bring Thula to the dentist's chair, and may signal a new food diet.

Each Vimshottari mahadasha provides nine sub-periods (bhukti). One of the nine bhukti periods is ruled by Mangala.

The characteristic results of Mangala bhukti detailed below will give a more dramatic experience if the mahadasha-pati receives the drishti of Kuja.

Mangala/Mangala bhukti yield very strong effects presuming that Kuja is not handicapped by rashi, drishti, or bhava. Also, periods of Mangala/Rahu and Mangala/Ketu when either node = yuti Mangala, or either node = in a rashi of Mangala, may give striking results.

Competitive, life-loving, vital, hunting, muscular, pursuing, penetrating, animal-nature, bloody, sensing and discovering Kuja controls:

  • bhava-2 = family history and values acquisition

Periods of Mangala bring wealth acquisition; accumulation of values such as art, music, food, and language collections; development of speech and song; attention to the face and hair; active engagement (positive or negative) with the family history and their values lineage.

Periods of Mangala bring heightened pro-active physical and social energy to build equal partnerships, dynamic counseling and advising behaviors, energetic marriage and business contract negotiations, vital consideration of mutual interest between any two equal parties; activity re: paired organs in the physical body; active development of the relationships which support the career (7th = 10th-from-10th)

For Thula lagna, Angaraka periods yield results consistent with Rulerships :

Career, Ability to Govern, Creating an Orderly Environment

as planetary patron of both 10th-from-10th and 5th-from-10th, Angaraka is an excellent career graha for the Thula lagna native.

  • 10th-from-10th = excellent career effects through reputable advisors

  • 5th-from-10th = very fortunate expression of speculative intelligence in leadership roles. the native is publicly perceived to be gifted and bright.

Education, belongingness, and properties

as ruler of both 4th-from-4th and 11th-from-4th, Angarika is secure and gainful in matters of education and property, for the Thula lagna native.

  • 4th-from-4th = deep and stable involvement in the roots of social-cultural foundational education. Excellent period for educators and parents.

  • 11th-from-4th = gains through foundational education; gains of shelters, such as homes and vehicles; gain through mother's folk customs and the established cultural norms of her people.

Vitality, Social Personality and Physical Appearance

as planetary patron of both 7th-from-1st And 2nd-from- 1st, Angaraka is an empowered maraka for the Thula lagna native.

  • 7th-from-1st = on the basis of one's own body and vitality, pursuit of mutually beneficial agreement with others. Balancing and re-adjustment of the social personality.

  • 2nd-from-1st = On the basis of one's own body and vitality, fulfillment of capacity for conservation of valuable goods and knowledge. Saturation (2) with physical incarnation, to the point that one cannot continue in a state of word-made-flesh. Mangala is an empowered maraka for Thula lagna, and periods of Mangala can trigger physical death.

Marriage, Partnership, Peer and Advising Relationships

Thula natives have a marked tendency to marry partners of a competitive or even primitive nature. In contrast to Thula-1, the partner is typically a more straightforward and quite physical person not inclined toward sophisticated negotiations or elaborate deals.

Much depends on the character of Mangala in the nativity, of course; but as a general rule one's friends and family may be rather surprised by Thula's choice of mate. Thula is the rashi of harmony and diplomatic relations, but Mangala yuvatipathi-7 is the karaka for fighting and primitive, aggressive behaviors. For all the negotiating skill inherent in Thula, if Kuja is not well configured, marriage can sometimes present the greatest difficulty.

The female Thula is attracted to male partners of a vital, athletic, and sexualized type. The male spouse is usually a meat-eater, no stranger to knives or firearms, and capable of great bravery when his brood are in danger. It is indeed often a display of athletic courage which convinces the Thula to accept this otherwise unlikely mate.

  • The first husband of UK-Princess Royal 1950- Anne Laurence was a military man and athlete, interested in competitive sport and perhaps rather overly full of male vitality. Because Mangala from the Thula lagna rules both the first marriage and the second lifepartnership, her second husband has a similar military and athletic profile.

The male Thula is often paired with a female of simple behaviors, slim-hipped and boyish, active and pretty, who has plenty of life-force energy and welcomes a challenge. She too is a sexualized person, and if her Thula husband is more concerned with business or social justice her life force may wither and fail.

Such a partner may be a great helpmate, but she operates mainly on the fleshly plane and is not naturally sophisticated unless the Thula's placement of Kuja is quite unusual.

as ruler of both 1st-from-7th and 8th-from-7th, Angarika is a sexualized and transformative relationship agent for the Thula lagna native. Mangala often brings a new male partner.

  • 1st-from-7th = attention to one's own role in relationships, vital energy invested into competitive, sexual and athletic partnerships.

  • 8th-from- 7th= circumstantially forced and possibly shocking changes in peer-to-peer agreements. Transformation of the marriage contract. Hidden information emerges regarding the spouse or partner. Sudden breakthrough in negotiations due to emergence of new facts or influ, ences. Meet the in-laws.

family history, Acquisition of Money and Knowledge

as planetary patron of both 6th-from-2nd and 1st-from-2nd, Angaraka creates physical contact and confrontation with the family historyfor the Thula lagna native. Relatives "come out of the woodwork". Financially, Mangala brings savings (2) and disagreement about money and values (6th-from-2nd).

  • 6th-from-2nd = on the basis of one's wealth, knowledge, and historic family lineage values, Mangala bhukti bring animosity with the family historyand within the second marriage if any. Acquisitive and hoarding behaviors are over- stimulated, out of balance. Health consequences re: what goes in the mouth. Debt from and medications for teeth, hair, face, and speech (often a dentist expense; Kuja lord of cutting and sharp edges, can bring surgery.) The first spouse (7) is the conflict agent, against the family or origin and/or against the second marriage.

  • 1st-from-2nd = despite the conflict arising from Kuja's role as ruler of 6th-from-2nd, the native is placed into direct contact with the family history. There is competitive and physical energy involved in the family discourse, perhaps sporting contests or strong emphasis on the physical appearance. Money and knowledge are pursued and acquired.

Siblings, Teamwork, Communication, Publications

as planetary patron of both 12th-from-3rd and 5th-from-3rd, Angaraka has a mixed effect on communications, narrative discourse, and publications for the Thula lagna native.

  • 12th-from-3rd = dissolution of effects from siblings, publications, writing, small-group and team interaction. Periods of dhanapati-2 Kuja will weaken the impact of group-oriented and verbose bhava-3 and empower pro-active personal acquisition of money, knowledge, and family-lineage values.

  • 5th-from-3rd = creative intelligence expresses practical skill-based expertise through writing, small-group teaching and training, business administration and publications. However Mangala is also lord of 12th-from-3rd therefore the writing may not be published quickly or the native 's duties regarding collecting and storage (2) of historical knowledge may drain the energy from present-era publications.

Children and Divine Creativity

as ruler of both 10th-from-5th and 3rd-from-5th, Angaraka's effects on children improve with time since 10 and 3 are both upachaya angles.

When Mangala bhukti occur in one's maturity (after age 28) the impact on children is favorable due to the native having overcome immature competitive impulsiveness. If the children are born too early it is unfortunate for the children. Thula lagna should wait to have children until after age 30.

  • 10th-from-5th = increased respectability and leadership roles for one's children; public validation or attention to one's literary, political, or celebrity creativity.

  • 3rd-from-5th = writing and discussing about intelligence, games, political power, charisma, creativity, and children.

Conflict, Imbalance, Disease, Debt

as planetary patron of both 9th-from-6th and 2nd-from-6th, Angaraka is provides the Thula lagna native with wealth and wisdom from the experience of illness, conflict, and exploitation. Mangala will place Thula-1in difficult and occasionally dangerous work situations. the native goes to work early in life and muscular labor is required, no matter one's station in life.

After the age of 28 the native will find that one's vital power to perform service work such as cleaning and food-handling, and one's incipient medical knowledge gained through poverty situations where no doctor will treat the disease, will lead to appreciable wealth and wisdom, obtained during periods of Kuja.

  • 9th-from-6th = fortune through wisdom teachings provided by adversaries, especially in the workplace. Fortune through servants, through repetitive or exploitive labor, through illness, and through debt or usury.

  • 2nd-from-6th = energizes The financial well-being and knowledge of one's enemies, one's physicians,. Saturation (2) with animosity, to the point that one cannot continue in a state of disagreement. A new balance (7) is achieved. One may, if Mangala supports it, receive historical knowledge from lineage medical traditions.

Sudden, Transformative Change

as ruler of both 7th-from-8th and 12th-from-8th, Angaraka brings Access to secrets for the Thula lagna native.

  • 7th-from-8th = agreements with surgeons, transformative healers, tantriki, and alliance with sources of hidden or occult knowledge. Kuja may trigger the death of a member of the first spouse's family.

  • 12th-from-8th = dissolution of the protective wall that surrounds secrets. Revealed information about spousal monies, spousal family (in-laws). Periods of yuvatipathi-7 Kuja will weaken the impact of malefic bhava-8 and empower straightforward, equal-to-equal contractual agreements.

Wisdom Teachings and Teachers

as planetary patron of both 6th-from-9th and 11th-from-9th, Angaraka brings both gainfulness and conflict in the temple, for the Thula lagna native.

  • 6th-from-9th = animosity with university professors, the university itself, temples and priests, and general imbalance-seeking-a-remedy of religious understanding due to Kuja's intense focus on material acquisition (2) and human-to-human contracts (7). Illness of an important teacher, the father, or conflict within the religious order. The family history(2) are the conflict agents in matters of religion.

  • 11th-from-9th = gains from wisdom-teachings and religious knowledge. Builds relationships with the community of believers in the sangha, particularly males.

Networks of Friendship, Goals and gainfulness

as ruler of both 4th-from-11th and 9th-from-11th, Angaraka is a highly benevolent

Yogakaraka graha in regard to one's ability to set and attain one's goals, for the Thula lagna native.

  • 4th-from-11th = energized development of foundations upon which to build a larger and more detailed social and conceptual network

  • 9th-from-11th = fortune through wisdom teachings provided by networks of association, friends and mentors

Spirit Guides, Dreams, Prayer, and Sanctuary Life

as planetary patron of both 8th-from-12th and 3rd-from-12th, Angaraka is disruptive and destructive, over-mentalized and secretive, force in the matter of prayer and reflective practice, for the Thula lagna native. Mangala bhukti are sleep-deprived because the native is so energized and competitive in the physical world.

  • 8th-from-12th = eruptive, forced changes in the astral world of dreams and intuitive perceptions. Hidden information emerges regarding foreign lands and matters of the private bedroom. Sudden breakthrough in meditation or reflective prayer.

  • 3rd-from-12th = writing and discussing about dreams, mystical and intuitive perception, prayer and sanctuary life.

According to Das, when Mangala occupies Kumbha, the competitive dhanapati-2 + yuvatipathi-7 engages both the native and the life-partner toward earnings (yuvatipathi-7 in 11th from swakshetra)

Predictably, Mangala in a rashi of Shani in 5 suggests miscarriage or therapeutic abortion of at least one conception; however if Guru is strong there may be other live births when Mangala is not the time lord.

  • "You may be cruel, ruthlessly striving to attain the objects of desire and causing terror to your adversaries.

  • You will derive inspiration from your spouse, who will goad you to indulge in self-seeking and money-making activities.

  • There may be a still-birth, which will cause much sorrow."

from ~~ Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology . Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 97

Remedial Ratna * munga (flawless red coral) for Thula lagna

"For the Libra Ascendant,

Mars is the lord of two death inflicting houses (maraka houses), the 2nd and the 7th. Moreover, Mars is an enemy of Venus, the lord this Ascendant.

Wearing a Red Coral by the native s of this ascendant should be generally avoided.

The second house is the house of wealth also. Therefore, if Mars is in his own sign in the 2nd, Red Coral can be worn with advantage during the Major period of Mars.

As far as the 7th house is concerned, if Mars is there in his sign, this disposition will give rise to a powerful Panchamahapurusha yoga known as Ruchaka yoga , the result of which has been described as under:

  • The person born in Ruchaka yoga will have a strong physique, and will be famous, well versed in ancient lore, king or equal to king, conforming to traditions and customs. He will have a ruddy complexion, attractive body, charitable disposition, wealthy, long-lived, and leader of an army.'

Thus, if there is Ruchaka yoga present in the nativity, the Red Coral can be worn with great advantage, particularly in the Major and sub-period of Mars."


Budha = dharmesha-9 + ruler-of-12

measured from radical Thula lagna or Thula Chandra; partner-effects from Thula navamsha

Loss of regulatory career, priestly roles, intellectualized meditation and reflection, religious writings

Budha = philosophical wisdom, public religion (9) + distant lands, private religion (12)

Budha controls Guru's bhava of religious practice = 9 + 12.

  • Great matters of wisdom teachings and ceremonial ritual (9) and human imagination in sanctuary meditation (12) become the subject of Budha's ongoing (and often published) conversations.

dharmesha-9 Budha = a natural professor. What one professes = depends on the bhava and rashi (et al) Budha.

  • POTUS-39 Talking Peace 1924- Jimmy Carter = professing upon community, marketplace economy, networks and opportunities


the native is prone toward religious, moral, and philosophically reflective writings per the placement of Budha by rashi and bhava.

Paradigm of Belief * Catechism * Doctrine

Conversational and sexual Budha is generally beneficial, although Thula-1 = rather busy mentally. Guru-oriented deeply interiorized spiritual practice might not be available to Budha the Administrator. Budha may give a detailed explanation and instruction in sacred matters (9) without much priestly (Guru) engagement . Often a lay professor of religion or other non-priestly expert in liturgical-spiritual practice.

On the one hand, talkative Budha dharmesha-9 + ruler-of-12 = Thula-1 = particularly gifted in theological discourse and unusually capable of describing the private states of meditation and prayer.

One has some potential to be a religious teacher although most likely in a facilitator rather than a guru role, unless Budha is very strong swakshetra in 9 or uttama in 12. the native may be well versed in a variety of religious practices and belief systems due to bantering Budha's natural intellectual curiosity.

On the other hand, Budha is largely an a-moral graha, which is to say that Budha can always see things from the other fellow's point of view. The Kumara is above all an agent of narrative discourse, conversation, and the exchange of information. Therefore Thula-1is less suited to the more dogmatic and ritualized style of moral teaching which has a definite right and wrong.

However should Shani be strong, the native may indeed enter into the religious professions in a priestly role and ascend the religious hierarchy in the same way that Thula ascends any other hierarchy: by building relationships, acquiring educational credentials, and assuming some professorial or other indoctrinating roles, and entering high leadership positions at times of significant institutional fluctuation (Chandra being karmesha-10 , Thula-1 must ride the waves of psychic shift as one assumes and releases social rank and entitlement.)

However Budha as ruler of 12th-from-10th is a negative influence for career, and Astrong Budha is often the signal of a weak career for Thula-1.

Even if other factors promote one's professional entitlement to impose an orderly environment on those below (10), periods of Budha indicate a waning of one's power to act influentially in leadership roles because the native becomes absorbed in religious thought.

Thula-1 chats blithely about matters of religious principle and moral observance which many find too sacred to express with words, while skillfully articulating the imaginative and divinatory processes of the deep subconscious which normally remain protected in the privacy of meditation halls or prayerful silence. Ironically, Thula lagna is better equipped to talk about public religion than to practice it, since Budha deprives the native of the respect accorded to the pious.


as planetary patron of both 3rd-from-10th and 12th-from-10th, Budha has an upachaya effect on career. Budha bhukti that occur during the adolescent and young-adult years are generally uncomfortable career-wise. Comfortable and pleasing results begin to accrue in regard to the native 's ability to communicate in positions of leadership and dominion, but only with the passage of time.

  • 3rd-from-10th = the native may have more skills for talking about decisions than for actually making decisions. Much energy dissipated (12) in petty debates.

  • 12th-from-10th = the great irony of the all-good ninth house is that as 12th-from-10th, dharma bhava drains energy away from public leadership roles in the human world, so that the native can study philosophy and deliver wisdom teachings from the divine world. dharmesha-9 grants access to higher knowledge, but dharmesha-9 is never good for bourgeois reputation and career.

For Thula natives, bantering Budha's engagement with religious practice and clairsentient intuition is not always completely dysfunctional.

Because Budha the Explainer = lord of dharmsthana, Thula has a natural talent for delivering detailed explication and instruction in religious studies such as critical social ethics, theology, comparative religions, or historical patterns of priestly ritual.

Indeed if Guru happens to be the lord of 10th navamsha, the Thula native may somewhat ironically find oneself teaching in the problematic university and temple environments, because a well-placed Budha is capable of explaining almost anything!

In particular for the Thula nativity+ dharmesha-9 Budha is gifted in the development of philosophical argumentation in any of the university intellectual disciplines.

  • uttama-Budha in 12 or swakshetra Budha in 9 can mature into an excellent instructor of the philosophy and history of religion, anthropology of religion, social ethics, history of consciousness, intellectual history, exegesis and critical literary analysis of sacred scripture, and similar analytical specialties which problematize the human experience of temple discourse, spiritual conscious, and divinatory prayer.

uttama-Budha in 12 is particularly gifted at explaining, instructing, and cataloging processes of dream interpretation, comparative meditation practice, clairsentient perception and reporting, and perceptions which occur on the boundary between life and death.

Education, belongingness, and properties

as ruler of both 6th-from-4th and 9th-from-4th, Budha gives mixed results in regard to social credibility, acceptance, and shelter. Thula natives are strongly associated with education through Yogakaraka bandesha-4 +vidyapathi-5 Shani, but Budha the karaka for personal speech, gesture, and written discourse is not always helpful in Thula's educational pursuits.

During periods of impressionable Budha, transits to bhava-9 will make a big difference in the educational, social security, and property-owning outcome. E.g., Shani transit through dharma bhava during a Budha bhukti could abort the conventional education (4) while enforcing pursuit of higher truths (9).

  • span 6th-from-4th = bhava-9 is a natural adversary of bhava-4. bhava-4 represents the foundational education in cultural manners, the folkways customs and established cultural norms; whereas bhava-9 represents the higher education in the relationship of humans to the divine. bhava-4 requires exclusive and boundaried habits, folk customs and established cultural norms; while bhava-9 demands inclusive, unbounded freedom. Budha as dharmesha-9 is an agent of conflict toward the natural restrictions of bhava-4.

  • 9th-from-4th = Budha's control of bhava-12 provides a path to moksha (freedom) from the basis of teaching, parenting, caretaking, and patriotic protection of the land. The liberation from nationalism and parochialism occurs not via the social personality but through the dreamlike, reflective and meditative perceptions on the many, many paths (individual cultures, nations, and tribes) which lead up the same mountain.

Vitality, Social Personality and Physical Appearance

as planetary patron of both 12th-from-1st And 9th-from-1st, Budha tends to make the Thula lagna native a bit mentally apathetic toward the body and its appearance. the native is curious (Budha) about religion, and if Budha is well-disposed one may undertake a university study (9) of religious phenomena (dharma) such as belief systems, orders of priesthood, etc. dharmesha-9 brings the amazing education of travel. As they say in Nepal,"one road is worth 1000 schools ".

  • 12th-from-1st = on the basis of one's own body and vitality, Budha sets in motion a drain of life force which sucks out prana from the physical body and pumps it back into the astral body. Spirit communication consumes most of the life force energy.

  • 9th-from-1st = On the basis of one's own body and vitality, Budha brings wisdom teachings through world travel particularly to holy places (pilgrimage+ ruler-of-12 Budha) and association with world teachers.

Marriage, Partnership, Peer and Advising Relationships

as ruler of both 3rd-from-7th and 6th-from-7th, Budha is a major trouble-maker in human partnerships, and a general miscreant in marriage. Thula-1 is advised to gain consciousness of a past-life tendency to criticize and argue in peer-to-peer relationships.

Thula-1 may overly rationalize relationship alliance choices, constructing a valid logical argument for the viability of partnerships which do not in fact possess the practical, material structure that ensures true equity and provides a foundation for lifetime agreement. Even if the yuvatipathi-7 and 7th-from-Chandra are strong, periods of Budha may excite internal argumentation that can damage partnership negotiations and harm an otherwise good marriage.

  • 3rd-from-7th = the all-good bhava-9 is not really all-good for everything. Dharma bhava rules the day-to-day life conversations of the partnership, and all the administration of married life including planning, meetings, communications technology and its usage, vocabulary, and the spouse's siblings-cousins. Budha is impatient by nature and He is also the lord of 6th-from-7th, therefore all these areas of relationship administration tend to be unsatisfying.

  • 6th-from-7th = In the Thula nativity+ ruler-of-12 Budha, who is also bhratrupathi-3 and rogesha-6 from Yuvati bhava, is naturally adversarial toward established peer-to-peer agreements. Budha is an agent of conflict and discontent in regard to the marriage contract. Periods of Budha may cause Thula-1 to feel mentally or physically sick from conditions of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy in marriage. Private, socially invisible bedroom (12) or fantasy (12) relationships, which are the natural enemies of the exclusive marriage vow, may be developed as a way of coping with the stress caused by conflict in the partnership.

Family history, Acquisition of Money and Knowledge

as planetary patron of both 8th-from-2nd and 11th-from-2nd, Budha is generally favorable for accrual and personal finance.

  • 8th-from-2nd = the family history and the second marriage partner (if any) generate secrets and emergencies which force the native to make sudden changes. Transformative experience, sometimes betrayal, alters one's acquisitive and hoarding behaviors. One may come to receive confidential information regarding the family lineage and emergence of hidden monies may realize an inheritance.

  • 11th-from-2nd = on the basis of one's wealth, knowledge, and historic family lineage values, Budha bhukti produce gains of stored wealth. Periods of Budha evoke commercial instincts for the native, and one is generally able to earn income through mental behaviors such as writing and skills-teaching.

Periods of ruler-of-12 Budha

There may arise some planned misalignments requiring realignment attention connected with the dissolution of vitality during foreign travel; with arguments or scheduling-planning challenges that occur in prayer or dreams (generally, Thula has a detailed, Budha-ruled dream life); or exhaustion-erosion of identity can occur in regard to enclosed, walled environment such as sanctuaries, hospitals, ashrams, dormitories or encampments.

Siblings, Teamwork, Communication, Publications

as ruler of both 10th-from-3rd And 7th-from-3rd, Budha has good auspice for gaining respect via one's writings or media communication and for advising relationship based in the small-group or business team, for the Thula lagna native.

  • 10th-from-3rd = on the basis of team communication skills, Thula advances to a leadership role during Budha bhukti .

  • 7th-from-3rd = On the basis of conversation and extended discourse, Budha bhukti generates equal-to-equal relationships that serve an advising and consulting purpose. Also, Budha bhukti may originate the"work marriage" which is the non-sexual, non-contractual pairing of partners in the team who function in a marriage-type twosome, and who share more time with work partner than with their avowed spouses.

Children and Divine Creativity

as planetary patron of both 5th-from-5th and 8th-from-5th, Budha provides both divine creativity for one's children (including the production of grandchildren) and also sudden shocks and forced changes for one's children and for one's own creative endeavors.

  • 5th-from-5th = on the basis of brilliant intelligence, both children of the mind and children of the flesh are created. fortune in gaming, speculation, parties, celebrations, and creative pursuits including wins of political elections.

  • 8th-from-5th = on the basis of clever speculation, Budha bhukti create a sudden transformation of one's mentality. May signal an emergency situation for the children. If any difficult short term effects, There will be quick recovery due to Budha's inherent speed and the excellent auspice of Budha's dharmesha-9 role.

Conflict, imbalance-seeking-a-remedy, Disease, Debt

as ruler of both 4th-from-6th and 7th-from-6th, Budha has a grounded and balanced approach to the reality of human conflict. Budha bhukti are troublesome in marriage and partnership, yet Thula-1 has the mental and communicative skills to negotiate a path through the conflict. During Budha bhukti s, Thula's good capability to stabilize (4, 7) conflicted, exploitive, ill, or unbalanced situations will be evoked.

  • 4th-from-6th = on the foundation of poverty, debt, illness, or chronic conflict and illness, during Budha bhukti s, Thula can create a sheltered home, secure school, or safe vehicles

  • 7th-from-6th = from a basis of severe disagreement, Budha permits relationships to be"re-imagined" (12) or re-negotiated

Sudden, Transformative Change

as planetary patron of both 2nd-from-8th and 5th-from-8th, Budha brings surprising wealth and good luck from shocking, forced changes, particularly from sudden deaths.

  • 2nd-from-8th = on the basis of hidden forces, money emerges in the form of inheritance, alimony, or insurance payment, or divorce settlement.

  • 5th-from-8th = on the basis of sudden and catastrophic life changes, remarkable fortune emerges. Particularly beneficial results from apparent tragedy such as from death of spouse or divorce (8).

Wisdom Teachings and Teachers

as ruler of both 1st-from-9th and 4th-from-9th, Budha is a highly benevolent

iinfluence upon the wisdom-learning process (with minor kendra-adhi-pati dosha)

1st-from-9th = on the basis of religious knowledge brought in from previous lives and the ritual indoctrination in the current life, Budha generates a mental narrative which is partially articulated as spoken, written, or externalized discourse. Budha likes to talk about religion, via detailed logical discussion. Splendid influence for theologians and dogmatists

Periods of Budha stimulate mental development of Thula's knowledge base re: moral and religious traditions.p>4th-from-9th = on the basis of religious knowledge brought in from previous lives and the ritual indoctrination in the current life, Budha make the native a teacher of religion and about religion. With strength for Budha, Thula may develop authentic religious scholarship. Generally, periods of Budha evoke research (12) and reflection (12) upon the great moral, literary, and aesthetic traditions of world religions.

Networks of Friendship, Goals and gainfulness

as planetary patron of both 2nd-from-11th and 11th-from-11th, commercial and communicative Budha is a networker and a money-maker.

  • 2nd-from-11th = on the basis of a network of friends and mentors (classically the prime mentor is the 'elder brother' but it can be any agent who is more knowledgeable and better connected in the world)

  • 9th-from-11th = on the basis of a network of friends and mentors, fortune through wisdom teachings provided by association with well-connected people

Spirit Guides, Dreams, Prayer, and Sanctuary Life

as ruler of both 1st-from-12th and 10th-from-12th, Budha is surprisingly helpful for making sense of dreams and intuitive perceptions. the native is psychically sensitive and generally able to communicative one's pattern recognition information in a sensible and coherent way (presuming Budha is well disposed). Usually, conscious access to spirit guide direction.

  • 1st-from-12th = the discursive, conversational mentality of Budha naturally handles a vocabulary of prayer, meditation, protective sanctuary, contemplative thought, and interiority. When Budha is in lagna, Thula nativity may be social identified with reflective mentality and prayer.

  • 10th-from-12th = moral leadership on the basis of personal prayer. one's executive capabilities are grounded in reflective mental practice.

Budha and Thula's Career

  • Budha = dharmesha-9 = twelfth from 10th as well as ruler-of-12 from radical lagna

    • the 9th lord while often an auspicious graha is nevertheless often the culprit for loss of professional dignity.

  • tthe twlefth lord while spiritually an agent of guidance and reflection = a social identity-drainer

  • may be associated with temporary"job loss " or other public indignities,

  • but the upside = the release of public duties also opens the door to a gain of religious wisdom. /li>


Remedial Ratna : Flawless Emerald (panna) for Thula lagna

~~ Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology. Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 101:

"for the Thula lagna

  • Mercury rules the 9th, the house of Bhagya, and the 12th.

  • As 9th is a trine, it will do good to the native if he wears an Emerald in the major or sub-periods of Mercury.

  • as planetary patron of the ascendant Venus is a friend of Mercury;

  • it will prove very beneficial if an Emerald is worn always along with a Diamond. "

Das commentary :

Jupiter is the lord of the 3 or Jupiter is the lord of the 6 or Jupiter is the lord of the 8.

"Jupiter will generally not give favorable results

but will confer recognition

and increase in income."

Guru = bhratrupathi-3 + rogesha-6

  • measured from Thula lagna or Thula Chandra; partner-effects from Thula navamsha

Guru = commercial business, communications + conflicts, ministries of service

L-3+rogesha-6 = "The Problematizer"

Guru = a troublemaker for the Thula nativity because Brihaspati over-expands two bhava which are better left unexpanded: bhava-3 which operates the mental narrative machinery and bhava-6 which operates the argumentative voice of systems-imbalance-seeking-a-remedy.

  • One takes a skeptical and indeed Inimical view of professors, priests, preachers, patriarchal authority figures

  • Thula lagna typically takes the Father's advice with a grain of salt at leastThe father's flaws are well known and not masked unless dharmesha-9 is with Rahu

  • Disagrees with university ivory tower truths, those who claim privileged knowledge on the basis of faith alone (faith does not create knowledge per se, it just creates more faith), little patience with those who confuse the large and abstract wisdom-teachings with the agenda of commerce and exploitation

  • expands the litigious and argumentative capabilities

Challenging placements of Chandra for the Thula lagna =

Thula lagna + Makara-Chandra = Guru"double-L-3"

  • damages sincere faith; tendency to reduce all wisdom into a container of commercial business.

  • This combination can however help a self-owned business in religious trainings such as conferences and seminars,

  • and this combination is also beneficial for academic publishing.

Thula lagna + Karkata Chandra = Guru = "double-rogesha-6 "

does not damage faith due to Guru = dharmesha-9 from Chandra, but gets the native into an endless series of confrontational arguments and generates a need to advance a seemingly endless flow of litigation often using the legal conflict management apparatus of the enemy (6) as the tool for developing (Guru) the perpetual argument

Thula-native lives in a state of emotional exhaustion due to the constant disagreeableness of women in the life * especially one's mother.

  • the native born in Thula-Karkata configuration is well advised to undertake training in one of the conflict-management professions. Medicine is also a sensible ministry if other graha support the medical arts.

Thula= karma of problematic relationships with fraudulent or exploitive professors, preachers, priests, and pater-noster:

Because rogesha-6 = Guru, Thula (and Karkata) natives are particularly challenged to maintain balanced relationships with teachers of all kinds.

It is less difficult for Karkata however because Guru also = L=9 for Karkata.

Thula has a stronger tendency to attract adversaries posing in the role of Teacher, Preacher, Professor or Indoctrinator.

Religious teachers such as lineage guru or university preceptors such as the academic adviser or dissertation director will pose the most difficult challenge, as these may stimulate a feeling of servitude or victim mentality due to past-life abuses. There is a chronic underlying experience of disappointment and dishonesty in most relationships to teachers.

This karma is not a show-stopper since Guru is also the L-3, which means that if Guru is well-disposed in the kundali, Thula-1is generally a capable learner (3), A skillful reader-writer (3), and blessed with easy access to literature (3).

  • Even if bhava-4 (conventional schoolteachers) and bhava-9 (temple teachers, guru, university) are in good condition, Thula-1will nevertheless struggle with preachers and professors, and with religious dogma, which seems to not fulfill its promises (6).

  • This karmic condition often presses the native to inquire more deeply into the gap between promised outcomes (dogma) and actual outcomes (reality), and to eliminate guru-* worth-ship * worship from their religious practice.

  • If dharmesha-9 and dharma bhava are strong, the fact that Guru = rogesha-6 does not ultimately harm one's religious sensibilities. In fact, a philosophical view of the fundamental inequalities in human relationships (6) can much increase one's appreciation for the purity of genuine truth.

  • However Thula natives are unlikely to fall prey to any pretense from a human claiming to be divine.

rogesha-6 = the Victimizer

Thula natives may feel victimized by:

  • those who hide their crimes behind the facade of a church or temple,

  • those who intentionally exploit others in the name of religion

Lord of bhava-3 = the custodian of one's internal narrative.

Budha's swabhava is typically a busy, chatty, administrating, interactive area of life that is concerned with the superficial yet defining mental process. In cultures dominated by the modern information economy, bhava-3 writing and publishing activities may claim majority brain-share and calendar time-share in the life.

For Thula lagna+ bhratrupathi-3 is Guru = Thulaare rather natural teachers and trainers (Guru), particularly in economically functional skill specialties such as the teaching of communication arts, technology and tools, and short-course education such as seminars and conferences. Guru may be a great philosopher but when He is forced to operate in the restricted area of Budha's "island" of mundane narrative of daily life, Brihaspati does the best He can to express great ideas within the chatty and short-term settings of commercial business and vocational"adult" education.

Thula lagna suffers from a dual disability of both L-3+rogesha-6 Guru and dharmesha-9 +ruler-of-12 Budha.(Budha is less damaging per se, because Budha rules both a trikona and a dusthamsha)

When Guru controls either of Professor Budha's swabhava, the Professor Guru attempts to Over-expand the natural limitations of administrative (3) and human service ministry (6) into grand and cosmic ritual undertakings (Guru).

This is awkward and uncomfortable for the native . One seems to one's co-workers to be"making mountains out of molehills ". the native annoys one's workmates and suffers philosophical frustration in trying to apply Brihaspati's "grand understanding" to work that is properly just"done" in a quick and efficient Mercurial style.

Thula naturally has a tendency to "make mountains out of molehills " in mundane business administration (3) and unequal relationships (6).

Thula lagna is better equipped to teach about practical matters than to act practical!

In a wifely nativity, Guru = significator of the first husband

Husband-1 tends to have more advanced traits of being diseased and being adversarial or unfaithful. Much depends on the placement of Guru via incoming drishti, rashi, 7th lord, 7th from Chandra etc. nevertheless it is a generality that Thula wives have husband trouble.

Thula lagna or Thula-Chandra indicates characteristics of Guru-ruled 3 and 6 tend to manifest through the agency of the first husband.

Thula chooses the marriage partner who will mirror-back the invisible parts of oneself. The first husband will mirror back:

Thula special planned misalignments requiring realignment attention = bantering Budha's swabhava -3 and -6.

The planned misalignments requiring realignment attention occur because 3 and 6 which are properly ruled by the detailed, specific, exclusive, denominational, conversational, argumentative, logical, one-to-one Budha

are overtaken by the generalizing, broad-view, inclusive, ecumenical, preaching, conciliatory, intuitive, one-to-many Guru.

Because Guru among other significations is definitely the karaka for a women's first husband, a primary"acting out" vehicle of natural frustrations of one's own bhava-3 and bhava-6 will be the first husband. (Other actors carrying karaka portfolio of Guru include religious teachers, university professors, and one's own father.)

The first husband is typically good-humored, generous and religious (karaka features of Guru) with bhratrupathi-3 and rogesha-6 disabilities:

  • rogesha-6 = health = imbalance-seeking-a-remedy related to Over-expansion,Optimistic disregard for medical advice

  • rogesha-6 = specific one-to-one agreements = difficulty to narrow and establish, due to an all-inclusive, generalist perspective. The Guru-ruled bhava-6 suffers resistance to fixed agreements via rhetoric of 'staying open-minded'

  • bhratrupathi-3 = planning, scheduling, written communications = substitutes a very broad knowledge for the pragmatically necessary specific details, tendency to Over-communicate yet still be unclear

  • bhratrupathi-3 = tends toward criticism based in frustration that a large-scale plan [Guru, 3] could not be achieve without implementing so many petty details - tends to disrespect the need for details at all

  • bhratrupathi-3 = highly conversational in nature due to Brihaspati's visionary expansion of 3,

  • bhratrupathi-3 = Guru's philosophy is forced into Budha's narrow daily conversation container, the talk = all Big Ideas with limited practical implementation

  • bhratrupathi-3 = engagement with the superficial, day-to-day business (3) becomes dysfunctionally philosophical (9), and little practical communicative output occurs unless servants (6) are available to assist

  • bhratrupathi-3 = if Guru is directly supported by Surya, self-righteous resistance to needed changes in the administrative and conflict-management strategies.

Guru = an especially difficult graha when BOTH:

  • Guru = rogesha-6 from radix lagna (material basis for broken contracts, fighting, disease)

  • Guru = rogesha-6 from Chandra lagna (emotional basis for dissolution of agreements)

The nativities which suffer the worst effect of Guru bhukti =

  1. Thula radix lagna + Thula Chandra

  2. Karkata radix lagna + Thula Chandra =

Depending on characteristics of Brihaspati according to yuti-graha, rashi, drishti. and bhava, Guru Mahadasha for the Thula radical nativity is generally a period of mentalized communication and great health imbalance-seeking-remediation.

Because of the roles played by Professor Guru for the Thula nativity, as ruler of 6th but also planetary patron of 10th-from-5th, and the animosity of Guru toward lagnesha Zukra, the era of Professor Guru tends to produce excess mentalization that leads to stress-caused disease conditions.

Even so, Vimshottari periods of Brihaspati support professions (10) which serve the suffering and disadvantaged or marginalized populations (6) or simply try to help people who have an abundance of problems.

Ill health almost inevitably, but also professional contributions are recognized particularly in Guru-style fields such as teaching and preaching.

  • Father's brothers
  • Mother's brothers

  • Enemies


For Thula: Guru the Expander in 6th from 6th:

rogesha-6 in 11 produces an interesting species of"friend" who is not necessarily in affinity with the native but who is helpful in economic and networking tasks because this "friend" is the stated enemy of one's own enemies.

  • Father's brothers (11 = 3rd from 9th) = enemies of one's enemies.

The father's brothers = dedicated adversaries of one's enemies (including father's cohort, father's team-mates, father's relatives overall).

Because 3rd-from-6th = 6th from 3rd-from-4th, father's brothers are the natural adversaries of mother's brothers. Bhava-11 = a hospitable place for the father's brothers but being 6th from 3rd-from-4th, bhava-11 is an inhospitable place for the mother's brothers.

When the lord of satkona significator of mother's brothers will reside in bhava-11, the mother's brothers bring a certain hostility and adversarial behaviors into the field of economic gains.

Yet for Thula-1, this rogesha-6 representing the mother's brothers = Brihaspati the Generous One. Little harm is possible but also gain is reduced.

The mother's brother may have been expected to be an agent of significant economic gain, yet much less gain is realized. On the other hand, there is no harm.

Compare for example the harm that could be done when a papagraha such as Mangala the rogesha-6 for Mithuna lagna might inhabit the vriddhisthana. Mangala can do some physical harm in the process of creating gain via enemies, such as injuries and illness. But Guru will not harm, even as He may disappoint grand idealistic expectations (Simha idealism) of expansive largesse.

  • over-expansion (Guru) of the naturally Argumentative, conflicted, socially disproportionate and exploitive behaviors (6)

  • overabundance of enemies however those enemies produce economic gains for the native

  • Exceptionally broad web of social connections

  • but amongst the widely associated linkages may lurk many enemies within the network

Good for Gambling

  • Politics = Profitable

surprisingly for Guru the trouble-maker, bhratrupathi-3 + rogesha-6 Brihaspati has a shining bright underbelly.

Periods of Brihaspati = good for gambling -- including the biggest of all gambles = creating a new live child.

may be filled with many annoyances, overly abundant commercial transactions and administrative (3) messages; undue amounts of writing and reporting (3); too frequency short-term travel (3); and the expected mental-physical health stress (6) resulting from the breakdown of trusts and contracts.

In particular Guru as rogesha-6 during Guru bhukti produces bad advice (ruler-of-12 from 7) from supposedly wise teacher-preacher males .

Guru can even signify a divorce under the provenance of the satkona. However one of the best features of both Guru for the Thula lagna and Budha for the Mesha lagna is one quirk of house lordship. This quirk allows the bhratrupathi-3 + rogesha-6 to produce wealth from children, politics, literature, games, and creative speculation = dhanapati-2 from 5 and Vriddhipathi-11 from 5.

Thula natives who are in a family way will delight in knowing that, whatever the other obstacles in their nativity, periods of Jupiter are highly empowered to bring a child into the life. There should be a nice graha in either 3 or 6 to bring the best results.

Even the relatively crude sorts of gambling games are favorable. Romance (5) produces money (2, 11). Children (5) become money-makers during Thula's Guru bhukti s; an adult child may be profitably invited to join the parent in a business venture during Guru bhukti s. Politics (5) and drama (5) are profitable. Works of creative literature which express a personal genius (5) produce wealth (2) and income (11).

Remedial Ratna Guru ratna"pushkaraja,"pukhraj" yellow sapphire

Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology. Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 107

BPL note: on p. 106, Kapoor includes a sample nativity with retrograde Guru in 3 for which he says," the native got a good relief in his long continued illness by wearing Yellow Sapphire because Jupiter is in the 3rd in his own sign".

"Jupiter rules the 3rd and 6th houses and is, therefore, not considered an auspicious planet for this Ascendant. It will, therefore, be advisable for the natives of this Ascendant not to wear Yellow Sapphire.

It may, however, be worn if necessary. in the major period of Jupiter if Jupiter is in his own sign in the 3rd or the 12th.

  • As we have said above, according to Parashara, Jupiter is considered an inauspicious planet for the Libra Ascendant, but Bhavartha Ratnakar considers him a yoga-giving planet...Dr. B. V. Raman

  • Dr. B. V. Raman who has written a commentary on Bhavarth Ratnakar says in his comments "...But the combination is quite against the ordinary rules of astrology which suggest that the lords of the 3rd, the 6th and the 11th are always bad".

In view of what is stated above, we stick to the view that Yellow Sapphire should be worn by the natives of the Libra Ascendant only when Jupiter is in his own sign in the 3rd or the 6th."

Das commentary upn Guru-11-Simha for the Thula lagna:

"Jupiter in this position activates your mind so much that your mental balance may be disturbed

  • If your work does not progress according to plan,

  • and if your domestic life doesn't provide adequate opportunities for the expression of your feelings.

  • You sometimes face danger."

Guru for Thula lagna = female, first marriage

Woman's first husband = 3+6 = a difficult character

The Thula lagna woman has much reason to complain about her husband's infidelities

Guru expands both the range of her criticism and the range of his illicit association

  • argumentative (6) - often a litigious lawyer

  • ill from a disease (6) of over-expansion (guru)

  • husband may be unfaithful (6) to trusts

  • consorts with characters from the underworld , prostitutes, human traffickers, drug-dealers (6)

  • in debt (6) or involved with usury

  • he is possessed of expansive writing skills (3)

  • this Guru will be lord of 5th-from-11 = commerce-3; therefore his commercial business is good particularly in publishing and making announcements

  • however his fortune in business (3) and his easy bhagya (blessed) ability to form partnerships (7 = 9th from Guru; including sexual liaison) is nevertheless a source of animosity and criticism in the marriage

Guru-Simha for female first marriage

When Guru karaka for first husband occupies Simha in a feminine nativity, the woman's first life partner = involved with

  • political, theatrical (Simha) royalty or entertainment-celebrity (Simha) criminals (6)

  • high-entitlement, fashionable, charismatic (Simha) exploiters-polluters-usurers

  • for political reasons, or trying to be seen as king-like (Simha), husband believes (Guru) that he should consort with characters from the underworld , prostitutes, human traffickers, drug-dealers (6)

  • husband may be unfaithful (6) to trusts due to seeking fame (Simha) or to his political or celebrity (Simha) associations

  • ill from a disease of over-expansion + intense inner heat (Simha) .

  • in debt due to theatrical (Simha) aspirations

  • this Guru will be lord of 5th-from-11 = commerce-3; therefore his business is good, his publicity is good, and his political or theatrical reports and announcements will be a source of his fame

bhratrupathi-3 + rogesha-6 in 11 = difficult - but not impossible - for children from the first marriage

Eased by Guru in kendra from Chandra

Eased by vidyapathi-5 well disposed

More likely than barrenness there may be a natural abortion (miscarriage) or therapeutic abortion (medical) due to disagreement (6) in the marriage


Das commentary :

"Few, if any children, or partner is barren or ailing.

  • Dispute with partner, separation or 2nd marriage,

  • daughters only,

  • serious illness to the elder brother,

  • poverty, indebtedness, imprisonment,

  • loss in business, disrepute,

  • leaving birth place etc. are some of the unfavorable results seen under this Jupiter. "


Zukra = lagnesha-1 + randhresha-8

  • measured from radical Thula lagna or Thula Chandra; partner-effects from Thula navamsha

Zukra = vital body birth + self-destruction and rebirth

Sensual Zukra = possessiveness , acquisitive tendencies, sensual pleasures, satisfaction, treasures-and-pleasures, luxuries (Laxmi) and all types of sweets.

Along with deepened identity in the physical appearance, Zukra also produces sudden changes of identity and upheaval in expected conditions. Being karaka for relationships, Zukra's modus operandi is typically a relationship which is both identity-confirming and identity-transforming. For the Thula nativity, relationships are never static or completely reliable.

as ruler of 1 and 8 for Thula lagna, Zukra is especially possessive of one's own individual body and social identity (1) and their knowledge of secrets, including their entitlement to control complete cycles of transformation (8)

Zukra = lagnesha + secret-holders positions Thula-1 for excellent performance in the roles of negotiator, counselor, and diplomat. They are both behaviorally self-determined retaining a strong individual identity within marriage (1) and loyal secret-keepers and keeper of the partner's wealth (8).

can be an extremely influential and significant period of the lifetime.

For the thula nativity, If possible a Jyotisha remedial Diamond should be worn during Zukra Mahadasha.

Recommended Jyotisha-ratna Gems :


Alternatively, the even more powerful offering of Seva will be highly effective. For the entire twenty years of the Zukra Mahadasha, Seva should be offered on behalf of those who need help with contracts, agreements, alliances, diplomacy, embassies and marriage-matching, bargaining, as well as architectural decoration and design. Seva for Zukra includes assistance in pair-making, equity-yoking, balancing of all types, including the medical and emotional balancing of of two-part fleshly organs such as eyes, ears, lungs, kidneys; and paired limbs such as hands-feet-arms-legs.

Zukra is especially important for males because Zukra rules marriage contract and the feminine partner.

  • The male native will enjoy the company of women who exemplify the two domains, 1 and 8, which Zukra commands from Thula lagna.

  • Her gracious presence will contribute to one's material enjoyment of one's own flesh-body and social identity, and but fidelity to the marriage contract is uncertain and there is some degree of mystery; likely she will have an attractive physical appearance and an interest in the occult.

as planetary patron of Lagna (physical body appearance) and lord of randhra bhava (magical and catastrophic changes) the sweet and sensual Guru of the Demons gives two separate but equally powerful results for Vaanija (the trader) natives. Zukra will also rule two houses vis--vis Chandra. Assess the two houses from Chandra for a fuller appreciation of Zukra bhukti s. Presuming that Zukra is well-disposed, Zukra bhukti bring praise for the beauty of the physical appearance and recognition for the social identity. Behaviors which increase material luxury, acquisition of treasuries , physical attractiveness, and knowledge or skill in the fine arts, are favored. Through the"sudden change"agency of the 8th lord , the native may experience - willingly or unwillingly - radical transformations of the body, perhaps at the cellular level. Surgeries, especially cosmetic, are favored. Mysterious undiagnosable illness may arrive with great force, but the disease conditions will recede before actually killing the native .

randhresha-8 causes sudden, forced transformation. Potential for shocking transformation of the body-mind-spirit apparatus = much enhanced if Zukra also rules the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra . Period of randhresha-8 is often shocking spiritually even if the body remains peaceful. The randhresha-8 enforces knowledge of things previously hidden.

One may see horrors, as one is forced to watch the turning of the cycle of birth and death in conscious real time. (Ah, this too.) Yet, only the dhanapati-2 and the yuvatipathi-7 are causers of death. The Thula lagna native may live"on death's doorstep" for a portion of the period of Zukra/Zukra bhukti but one will recover.

Expect some residual Post-Traumatic Shock effects after the Zukra bhukti is complete. Effects of bhukti of Zukra during other Vimshottari mahadasha will be determined by the angle from the mahadasha pati to Zukra. Only the shad-ashtaka 6-8 angle = really problematic.

Career, Ability to Govern, Creating an Orderly Environment

as ruler of both 11th-from-10th (Vrishabha) and 4th-from-10th (Thula), Zukra brings stability (4) and gains of income (11) in career.

  • 11th-from-10th = Despite the upheaval in identity and often a physical transformation which occurs during Zukra bhukti s, the native continues to earn an adequate income (unless there are very difficult graha in bhava-8.) The sources of income may include others' monies, such as inheritance, insurance settlement, and in particular the assets of the spouse.

  • 4th-from-10th = Public respectability and position remain stable during Zukra bhukti s. Career-based education is supported. (unless there are difficult graha in bhava-1.)

Foundational Education, belongingness, and properties

5th-from-4th (Vrishabha) and 10th-from-4th (Thula), Zukra is a provider of nurturing support in matters of education and property.

  • 10th-from-4th and 4th-from-10th. Education; diploma, entitlements; acquisition of properties; and ascending to a respected social rank are frequent results of a well-placed Zukra during Zukra's periods

    as planetary patron of 5th-from-4th + 4th-from-5th, Zukra supports the education of one's children, and the development of teaching, parenting, or other culture-sustaining service that expresses individual intelligence. the native may experience a burst of creativity and ingenious speculative behaviors in response to the need to sustain personal security.

    On the basis of one's own education, speculative advance occurs. It is a time for thinking out of the box. The creative result is placed in bhava-8 therefore the result is not permanent. Yet, Zukra bhukti nearly always signal a type of creative gambling that expresses self-confidence based on the already-established levels of security such as based on one's education, based on one's properties, based on one's patriotism, or based on one's knowledge of cultural manners.

    The risk is transformative (8) but life-affirming and generally successful.

Vitality, Social Personality and Physical Appearance

as ruler of both radix lagna (Thula) And 8th-from-lagna (Vrishabha) Zukra regulates birth and the body, as well as cyclical self-destruction and rebirth, for the Thula lagna native.

lagnesha- Zukra helps define the materialized appearance. the native is generally attractive with balanced physical features. Placement of Zukra in bhava, rashi, and incoming drishti defines the social affiliations. Periods of Zukra develop the social personality and iconic material appearance. During periods of Zukra one Accumulates (Zukra) a curriculum vitae of important attributes and facts of personal lore - physical, cultural, and mental - which define the person. Zukra tends to be physically attractive, so a considerable amount of the personality development energy may be focused on the appearance.

Zukra bhukti = accumulating (Zukra) the traits and historical personal experiences which shape the social personality. During Zukra bhukti s, the native establishes one's "look". the native and those who look to him as an exponent and exemplar of a particular set of values (Zukra) will refer to the personality-defining experiences and traits again and again, in the quest to define a particular variety of social awareness through the appearance, behaviors, and history of a single influential individual. E.g.,

  • Iconically (what others see or project upon the material personality) the Zukra-ruled Thula native = fundamentally oriented toward attractiveness, wealth, making agreements, living in harmonious balance with other humans, sensual pleasures from art, music, and the experience of beauty. Periods of the lagnesha-1 Zukra are self-defining.

  • 8th-from- lagna = cycles of birth, death, and rebirth are particularly vivid for Thula-1during periods of Zukra. Zukra bhukti bring an apparent catastrophic collapse or destruction of the physical and social identity, followed by a rebirth. Zukra bhukti may also bring inheritance money, financial gifts from unexpected or mysterious sources, or access to the suddenly revealed (or suddenly offered) monies of the spouse or business partner. Occasionally a severe and mysterious illness (8) is required to effect the conditions of death, release, reconstitution, and rebirth at a cellular level.

Marriage, Partnership, Peer and Advising Relationships

as planetary patron of 2nd-from-7th (Vrishabha) And 7th-from-7th (Thula) Zukra is a wealth-and-pleasure agent in the world of human relationships.

  • 2nd-from-7th = Periods of Zukra bring increased accumulation and hoarding empowerment to increase the holdings of the joint assets of marriage (8). Relations with in-laws move to prominence but if Zukra is well-disposed the family of the spouse (8) are pleasurable companions and wealth-agents.

  • 7th-from-7th = oneself, one's own role in partnerships. Zukra bhukti define one's role in partnership, which is generally as an agent of negotiation, balanced design, diplomatic alliance making, and artistic satisfaction. Favorable period for marriage and business agreements. One is inclined to support the mutual interests of both self and partner.

family history, Lineage Values, Acquisition of Money and Knowledge

A s lord of 7th-from-2nd (Vrishabha) and 12th-from-2nd (Thula) Zukra controls the mutually supportive agreements made between the native and one's family.

  • 7th-from-2nd = Zukra bhukti express new attempts to balance one's relationships with the family as a unit. On the basis of one's own knowledge, acquired and accumulated learning of history and languages, one's own values (originally from the family) and one's speech and facial appearance, one may generate new relationships of mutual benefit. Zukra = the native looks attractive for one's face, voice, wealth, and learning.

  • 12th-from-2nd= loss and dissolution of attachment to stored wealth, accumulated collections of art or knowledge, and to the lineage values of the family history. One strikes off on one's own. Attachment to the Self is strengthened. Whether the family historyinterest is fundamentally positive or negative, one dissolves the lineage bond a bit, and moves forward into a deeper focus on individual self.

Siblings, Teamwork, Communication, Publications

Ruling 6th-from-3rd (Vrishabha) and 11th-from-3rd (Thula) Zukra = a less benevolent influence on sibling relationships and scripted daily communications in general.

  • 6th-from-3rd - periods of Zukra may signal illness or poverty for the younger sibling, conflict with team-mates, and imbalance-seeking-a-remedy in the tasks of making announcements, publications, writing, and producing messages in all communications media. the native may experience a temporary deficiency of courage and general downswing in mental health due to daily conversations becoming somewhat adversarial. However Zukra is such a strong natural pleasure-giver subhagraha that personal sweetness will compensate for most of the crabby conflicts.

    11th-from-3rd = on the basis of team work, mental process, writing and generating messages, conversations and narrations, the native is able to attain goals related to the development of the social personality.

Children and Divine Creativity

as ruler of 4th-from-5th (Vrishabha) A nd 9th-from-5th (Thula) Zukra gives a highly benevolent

a Yogakaraka effect upon children And creative intelligence.

  • 4th-from-5th = Zukra bhukti support the education of one's children. However the base house is bhava-8, which means that Thula-1tends to be somewhat mystified by the education which one's children are receiving. Nevertheless, comfortable results in the children's education are to be expected. If no children are presently being socialized, the outcome will be related to security obtained, licensing or social approval given to one's creative endeavors, for example on the basis of speculation (5) one may purchase a home or vehicle at a favorable price (Zukra). the native with Zukra natally in 8 can do this every day. If Thulalies elsewhere, wait for periods of Zukra to trigger good luck in acquisition (Zukra) of properties and vehicles.

  • 9th-from-5th = fortune and higher education for one's children. Children may enjoy global travel, religious enlightenment, and participation in philosophical discussions. Through the auspice of the philosophical development level of the parent, the children may begin to develop their own wisdom-awareness during a bhukti of Zukra. Priesthood or taking vows for the children. (Oneself taking consecration vows = often a period of dharmesha-9 Budha.)

Conflict, imbalance-seeking-a-remedy, Disease, Debt

as planetary patron of 3rd-from-6th (Vrishabha) and 8th-from-6th (Thula) Zukra provides a particularly pernicious influence upon matters of animosity, debt, and disease. Which is a good thing!

  • 3rd-from-6th = Zukra controls the mental narrative regarding conflict in human relationships, poverty, disease, exploitation and oppression, and every other manifestation of inequality (6 = 12th-from-7th, loss of equality).

If Zukra is well disposed, the native may be a highly skilled and sensitive diplomat able to produce and develop an attractive, balanced narrative of conflict.


  • 8th-from-6th = Zukra controls the power to transform, through sudden and forced change, the static conflict in human relationships. Zukra can kill and rebirth experiences of poverty, disease, exploitation and oppression, and other manifestations of inequality. Thula, the radix lagna, defines the physical appearance and social personality.

  • When Zukra is strong, the native may have an iconic charisma as one who magically transforms the irresolvable arguments of 6 through enforcement or encouragement to move through cycles of upheaval and change. Thus Thula natives are famed for their gracious presence in times of extreme strife, and their personality-power to manage the process of bringing long-standing conflict (6) to a state of transformative crisis (8).

  • Zukra is not empowered to permanently resolve debts; rather, the lord of 8th-from-6 can move the consciousness of the conflict, its energy-state, to a new peak, and thus initiate a rebirth or renovation of the old imbalance-seeking-a-remedy . An excellent position for the diplomat, negotiator, and re-financier.

Sudden, Transformative Change

as ruler of both 1st-from-8th (Vrishabha) and 6th-from-8th (Thula) Zukra induces significant and sometimes violent forced changes in the native 's lifestyle, often using illness (potentially severe, related to or stimulated by alcohols and sugars) as the vehicle for dramatic personal breakthrough experiences.

  • 1st-from-8th Zukra-ruled nativities are particularly open to receipt of mystery knowledge. The public rather natural invests the native with confidential information, and the role of confidante is frequently held. Zukra provides a g racious handling of others' secrets and natural access to the tantrik worldview (eternal life force essence, bound to endless cyclical change-of-form).

  • 6th-from-8th =sudden and shocking change on the basis of physical illness or pronounced disagreements in relationships. Zukra/Zukra bhukti may bring experiences of intense and transformative illness which is the method of choice for transformation of the psycho-physical body (lagna,1). In the throes of bodily imbalance-seeking-a-remedy, the physical body encounters the conditions of death, but the sick body is reborn (8) without literally needing to die physically.

Wisdom Teachings and Teachers

as planetary patron of 12th-from-9th (Vrishabha) and 5th-from-9th (Thula) lagnesha Zukra provides the dissolution of orthodox religious dogma (12th-from-9th) as well as expression of creative, speculative religious genius. the native holds a naturally reflective (12) and aesthetic (5) orientation toward matters of faith, with a sensual, beauty-seeking view of religious practice.

  • 12th-from-9th = on the basis of wisdom teaching acquired from childhood, Thula-1is aware of the principles of orderly social relation. and the philosophy of law. Through iconic public roles and large scale role-modeling, Thula-1 manifests sacred teachings through public service in executive and law-issuing capacity.

  • 5th-from-9th Financially, Chandra = 2nd-from-9th and 9th-from-2nd . As 2nd-from-9th, Soma indicates savings and hoards derived from university education, temple teachings, world travel, and one's own father. As 9th-from-2nd, the family affluence and values form the basis of the child's religious education. If Chandra is well-disposed, Thula-1receives a very good religious and moral upbringing.

    Vimshottari dasha periods of Chandra can signal the death (2) of the father (9) however in practice it is more likely that 2nd-from-Surya or 7th-from-Surya will have agency of father's death.

Networks of Friendship, Goals Achievement, and marketplace revenues

span as ruler of 10th-from-11th (Vrishabha) A nd 3rd-from-11th (Thula) Zukra Chandra dissolves the larger network of social and conceptual associations, exhausts the resources available to develop new connections, and drains away the income. Naturally, the time demands of high-profile social leadership roles (e.g., president of a nation, manager of a business) are enormous, and the native is thereby deprived of the time or energy that would be needed to develop one's own presence in the marketplace of goods and ideas.

  • 10th-from-11th = on the basis of membership in established social and conceptual networks, the native takes positions of power which are less distributed across the larger group (11) and more concentrated in the hands of the smaller executive elite (10). Taking iconic and exclusive social regulatory positions deprives the native of one's freedom to mix and mingle socially.


    e highly constrained. One's every thought, purchase, or conversation are tightly managed by the protocols of leadership. During the period of holding directive rank, the native will not be free to socialize in an egalitarian style and frequently will not earn much income. Prestige, yes. Prestige as a basis for future gains of income, yes. However during periods of karmesha-10 , one's relationship to the marketplace is dissolved, and financial income is flat or drops.

Spirit Guides, Dreams, Prayer, and Sanctuary Life

as planetary patron of 9th-from-12th (Vrishabha) and 2nd-from-12th (Thula) Zukra

generates gain (11) from intuition and psychic perception (12). Natives in positions of social responsibility often do not have the leisure to long reflect or delay their decisions until a complete set of rational information is available.

A good deal of trust is publicly invested in one's character and personal judgment, and decisions must frequently be made on an intuitive basis.

The fruits (11) of one's dreams and intuitive pattern-recognition skills are manifest through Chandra, and these will blossom to the fullest extent during major Vimshottari periods of the Moon.

  • 11th-from-12th = eruptive, forced changes in the astral world of dreams and intuitive perceptions. Hidden information emerges regarding foreign lands and matters of the private bedroom. Sudden breakthrough in meditation or reflective prayer.

for Thula lagna + Chandra-Thula

for Thula lagna + Chandra-Meena * comforted by rhythmic ancestral guidance

Zukra, lagnesha and karaka for marriage, becomes the shock-agent

  • randhresha-8 from radix lagna = physical and social-status shocks

  • ANd

  • randhresha-8 from Chandra = psycho-emotional shocks

The location of Zukra will reveal the environment which usually produces these transformative, self-destructive (and self-regenerative) shocks.

Periods of Zukra can be filled with emergency and sudden, magical change.

E.g., for Chandra-Thula or Chandra-Meena, sudden and often catastrophic change via:

  • Zukra in bhava-1 environment = pleasure in one's own body, the social personality identity, sweet winning of competitions and fights

  • Zukra in bhava-2 environment = sweet money, sweet death, sweet knowledge of history, sensuality of the second marriage

    Zukra in bhava-3 environment = delights in the interior mental narrative, loves to write, pleasure in conversations, charmed by publications, love of business administration, media production

  • Zukra in bhava-4 environment = pleasure in home and security, sweet patriotism, sweet love of cars and houses, delight in ancient roots and rhythms, folk customs and established cultural norms;, enjoys foundational schooling and basic skills.

  • Zukra in bhava-5 environment = sweet winning of speculative challenges and games, charmed by children, delights in creative genius, the romantic lover

  • Zukra in bhava-6 environment = pleasure in the interior mental argument, love of conflict, leading to breakdown of contractual agreements, imbalance-seeking-a-remedy in the social relationships, imbalance-seeking-a-remedy in the physical body due to excessive sweet.

    Zukra in bhava-7 environment = karako bhavo nashto, if Zukra is strong. The sensuality of marriage and the marriage partner have agency of constant upheaval and change.

  • Zukra in bhava-8 environment = secret information, pleasure in emergencies, magic and magicians, sweet spouse's money, the in-laws, taxes

  • Zukra in bhava-9 environment = religious awakening, pleasure in world travels, philosophical study, universities, priests, temples

  • Zukra in bhava-10 environment = pleasure in corporate leadership and responsibility to impose an orderly environment, particularly amongst women or in regard to feminine cultural artifacts; sweet power.

  • Zukra in bhava-11 environment = pleasure in social networking and progressive political movements with goals to expand the opportunity to network.

    Zukra in bhava-12 environment = pleasure in long residence in foreign land, monastic withdrawal from the social ego, love of hospitalization or sanctuary space, private sweet "bedroom-based" relationships

Remedial Ratna for Zukra: Flawless Diamond * hira * azira

for Thula lagna

Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology . Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 113"

"For the Libra Ascendant,

  • Venus rules the Ascendant (and the 8th house) .

  • He is considered as an auspicious planet for this Ascendant and wearing of a Diamond promises good health, long life and success in life .

  • It will be immensely profitable to wear it in the major and sub-periods of Venus.

  • Actually Diamond is a life time protective charm for the Libra natives.

  • If Venus is in Libra in the Ascendant he causes Malavya yoga And wearing of diamond with such disposition will enhance the good effects of the yoga."


Shani = bandesha-4 + vidyapathi-5

  • measured from Thula lagna or Thula Chandra;

    partner-effects from Thula navamsha

Shani = parenting, schooling, root-culture (4) + children, intelligence, speculation, games (5)

Vimshottari periods of Shani require skillful management of scarce resources.

However Yogakaraka Shani bhukti for Thula-1 also produce abundant social-validation compensation due to advances in formal education (4) and recognized expressions of creative genius intelligence (5).

Periods of Shani lord of Time and Scarcity = never fun. Yet Shani bhukti of any length = structured and responsible on the material plane. Thula natives will successfully complete schooling and earn a diploma. Children are born under auspice of the vidyapathi-5 and every rule of proper childraising will be applied to their care.

For Thula-1, the chain of nine Shani bhukti which can occur from birth to death will leave a legacy of lasting legitimations including educational diploma, license to practice a profession, scholarly performances, well-structured speculative ventures, political empowerments earned by accepting responsible duties, and lawful production of well-raised children.

  • Even as yogakaraka, Shani does not lose His responsible, structuring, slow, delaying, hard-working, disciplined, austere, and time-regulated character.

  • Yogakaraka Shani releases His favorable results only very slowly , after the native has completed substantial education (4) and learned to discipline the intelligence (5) to produce true confidence in the divine will .

  • Shani is a harsh ruler for Putra Bhava, bhava-5, a swabhava of Shani's enemy Surya.

One may expect to experience many failures and setbacks on the road to substantial material achievements in education and sheltering ( 4) and creative arts or political empowerment(5).

Success in public life during Shani bhukti in particular and throughout life in general for Thula-1 = due less to what happens in the Thula nativity, and more to what doesn't happen.

For Thula lagna, Shani, the dark force of ignorance and unnamed fears, does His work through the agency of cultural education (indoctrination and licensing systems) (4) and intelligence (5), Shani's results give discipline and structure, not oppression and slavery. Whatever domain Shani occupies, Shanaicarya will bring the security of bhava-4 and the creativity of bhava-5 along with Him.

The lord of bhava-5 is especially beneficial. If the worst threat to human happiness is indeed doubt, the lord of bhava-5 which brings confidenceis the antidote to life's worst distress.

Shani is Yogakaraka for Thula lagna, but this fact does not make Shani an"easy results " graha! Thula natives have such a favorable prognosis for both cultural education (4) and individual intelligence (5) because Shani provides the lifetime discipline to shape, polish, and perfect the process.

For Thula lagna, results in matters of bandhusthana and putra bhava are slowed and socially responsible with numerous delays and setbacks.

Typical for scarcity-Shani , the number of children is normally limited due to the significant public duties of the native . Although parenting (4) is satisfying it is also obligatory in nature.

The scholarly (5) native becomes a"lifelong learner" or"chronic student" who remains in karmic bondage to studies, working always as a student or a teacher in some capacity. (For example: professional mentor, educational advisor, literary agent, numerous instructional-guidance roles.)

Thula makes plenty of mistakes in life, perhaps even even more than average for an intelligent human being.

However Yogakaraka Shani compensates for deficiencies in personal intelligence"content" by imposing the conceptual structure from educational"form", and as a result the native actually learns from one's mistakes.

This single trait is responsible for the extraordinary number of Thula lagna nativities in positions of executive power and authority in the world.

In a feminine nativity, Shani = significator of the second husband. Measuring from Thula lagna or Thula-Chandra, note the characteristics of Shani-ruled bhava-4 and bhava-5 in the second husband.

As a dramatic Agent, the second husband (if any) tends to have qualities of

  • maturity and personal discipline, high ly structured"architectonic" viewpoint, disciplined intelligence (5),

  • high levels of educational attainment, typically acquired with difficulty, numerous delays, and requiring austerities (4 and 5),

  • scarce resources in the childhood home (4),

  • and may work in the teaching professions (4 and 5).

Naturally, time and age bring the best results in any undertaking governed by Shani. Also, Shani must be well-disposed in order to produce self-discipline from the inside rather than social discipline (oppression) from the outside.

Remedial Ratna for Shani - Blue Sapphire * Nilam

for Thula lagna

from ~~ Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology . Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 116

"For the Libra Ascendant,

  • Saturn rules the 4th and the 5th houses and is, therefore, a Yogakaraka planet.

  • Venus, the lord of this Ascendant is also a friend of Saturn.

  • Consequently, the native of this Ascendant will enjoy very beneficial results by wearing a Blue Sapphire.

  • The wearing of a Blue Sapphire during the major period of Saturn will prove very advantageous.

The good effects of the Blue Sapphire will be fortified if

  • it is worn along with Diamond, the gem stone of Venus, the lord of this Ascendant

  • and Emerald the gem stone of Mercury, the lord of the 9th house."


Rahu = co-lord of bhagya bhava-5

  • measured from Thula lagna or Thula Chandra; partner-effects from Thula navamsha

chalakaraka Rahu = children, creativity, intelligence; wealth from speculation and games (5)

Kumbha. Rahu-ratna (gomedha) may become a beneficial amplifier-gem for self-elevating promotion of creative intelligence, procreativity, politics and entertainments, speculative investment and gambling.

  • However Rahu in rashi of maraka Mangala = "sudden erratic movements " for Thula lagna.

Also Rahu in dhana-bhava or yuvati-bhava is associated with the end of life.

Even if the target is enhancement of creativity and acquisition of children, the Rahu-ratna should be considered only if the lord of bhava-5 and its occupants are highly benevolent.

As co-lord (with Shani) of Kumbha/5, Rahu gives passionate and unusual children. Due to austerity-karaka Shani's rulership of the house of children, Thula natives typically have few offspring. However those few produced are complex, adventurous, ambitious, scientific, and passionate taboo-challengers by nature.

Rahu and Ketu are said to give positive results in the 3rd, 6th, and 11th bhava from the lagna or from Chandra.

In addition, some authorities posit that since R-K are exalted in Vrishabha-Vrizchika (per BPHS), R-K will give good results when Mangala and Zukra are well-disposed.

Ketu = co-lord of dhana-bhava

measured from Thula lagna or Thula Chandra; partner-effects from Thula navamsha

  • Ketu's effects depend significantly on Ketu's bhava, rashi, and drishti.

  • Ketu amplifies the effect of any graha sharing Ketu's house; and also Ketu scatters the effects of the lord of His occupied Rashi.

  • For more detailed evaluation, see Ketu in 12 bhava.


  • Ketu = temporal co-lord of bhava- 2 = 7th-from-8th = Vrizchika

  • Ketu = the natural co-regulator of bhava-8-Vrishabha .

For Thula lagna, Professor Ketu = associated with

  • Mangala = temporal co-regulator of 2 + natural co-regulator of 8.

  • Mangala = neutral toward lagnesha Zukra

  • Zukra the temporal lord of 8-Vrishabha.

  • Zukra is neutral toward Mangala.

To predict the effects of Ketu Mahadasha, measure:

  • the influence of Ketu's planetary lord

  • the disposition of both Zukra and Mangala

Ketu-ratna = helpful for spiritual"witness " practice which can be a component of Thula's "relationship" diplomatic negotiating consciousness. Vaidurya could be a beneficial gem in the case that Zukra and Mangala are both well disposed.

Even if auspicious, the nature of marital and other alliances shall certainly get"scattered". Expect a family history (2) that is disconnected from the mainstream and which disregards the conventional polarities that make family narratives coherent. Ketu-ratna may prove beneficial in those rare activities wherein disconnection, un-gluing, and surrender is the aim.

Ketu contributes to an eccentric and peculiar family history for Thula-1, including the special effects for 7th-from-2nd, previous spouse of the 2nd life partner. Ketu contributes detachment and misfit qualities to the family identity, but the stronger regulators of family character= both Mangala dhanapati-2 and also whichever graha functions as ruler of 2nd-from-Chandra.

Ketu is co-lord of bhava-2 Vrischika, therefore Ketu-ratna may be a beneficial gem for matters of treasuries and language acquisition, knowledge of history, and relations with the family history-- if the lord of bhava-2 and its occupants are auspicious.

Special case: Ketu-Vrizabha-8

= in 9th from 12th (clairsentience)

Das commentary of Ketu-Vrizabha-8:

"Ketu arouses supernatural powers,

  • and your intuitive understanding of relationships will be surprising.

  • You will acquire much fame."

Thula lagna Friendly and Non-Friendly Domain Rulerships

  • bhava with planetary animositybetween natural and temporal lord are marked in yellow

  • bhava with lordship conflicts are inherently problematic And require conscious management
