Public Figures


Vrizchika specializes in recycling, renewal, rejuvenation, death-and-rebirth.

  • If Guru-ruled Vishaka * Radha pada-4 nakshatra marks the eastern horizon at the time of birth, a special understanding of lineage values and cycles of death-and-rebirth confers a capacity for catastrophe and large-scale rebirth. Often a shakti-healer via rather shocking methods.

  • When Shani-ruled Anu-radha * Maitra forms the rising nakshatra, suddenly emerging, eruptive change can be contained within lawful structures. Often an agent of shock-recovery who restores the social order after upheavals and disasters, such as governance officials, military, physicians and emergency-response professionals.

  • Budha-ruled Jyestha * Kita indicates a messenger of transformative destruction and renewal, whose instructional signal is vigorously conveyed. Often an announcer, reporter, channeler, prophet, instructor, writer, spin-doctor, actor, spokesperson who can make shocking statements.


Vishaka * Radha * pada-4 * ruled by Guru humanism expansion

Guru mulatrikona * Dhanushya bhava-2 * wealth accumulation, collections of value, historical knowledge, family of origin, voice-song-mouth-eyes-hair; pleasure from wisdom, internationalism


Anuradha * Maitra * pada 1-2-3-4 * ruled by Shani social governance

"Q. 33

"For persons born in Scorpio lagna, Mars is bad and will kill the native if ill disposed," says Jataka Chandrika .

"Mars is not a malefic for persons born in Scorpio," says Parashara .

How do you reconcile these?"

"Ans.

Here we have no contradiction.

For persons born in Scorpio, Mars is the lord of both 1 and 6. As such, he may exercise any one of these powers, or both.

According to Mantreswara , he will exercise the lordship of 6, since the Mulathrikona for Mars is Aries which is the 6th house.

Anyhow, he will exercise his power as the 6th lord if he is ill-disposed .

If he happens to be strong, well-posited, and otherwise favourable, he will exercise his powers as ruler of 1 which is always good."

T. Subba Row. (1881)."The Twelve Signs of the Zodiac" in Five Years Of Theosophy. George Robert Snow Mead (ed.). London. (1885, 1894).

"VIII. Vrischika.

It is stated by ancient philosophers that the sun when located in this Rasi or sign is called by the name of Vishnu (see the 12th Skandha of Bhagavata).

  • This sign is intended to represent Vishnu.

  • Vishnu literally means -- expanded as Viswam or Universe.

That which is expanded


Properly speaking, Viswam itself is Vishnu (see Sankaracharya's commentary on Vishnusahasranamam).I have already intimated that Vishnu represents the Swapnavastha or the Dreaming State. The sign in question properly signifies the universe in thought or the universe in the divine conception.


It is properly placed as the sign opposite to Vrishabham or Pranava. Analysis from Pranava downwards leads to the Universe of Thought, and synthesis from the latter upwards leads to Pranava (Aum).We have now arrived at the ideal state of the universe previous to its coming into material existence.


The expansion of the Vija or primitive germ into the universe is only possible when the 36"Tatwams " * are interposed between the Maya and Jivatma.

  • The dreaming state is induced through the instrumentality of these"Tatwams."

  • It is the existence of these Tatwams that brings Ham to existence.

  • The elimination of these Tatwams marks the beginning of the synthesis towards Pranava and Brahmam and converts Hamsa into Soham .

As it is intended to represent the different stages of evolution from Brahmam downwards to the material universe, the three signs Kanya, Tula, and Vrizchika are placed in the order in which they now stand as three separate signs."

Vrischika_CorvusNegrus.jpg

Corvus Negrus * the Black Crow

11th-from = Natural Friendship Community-Economy * Sahangha

befriends "Kanya" types:

the mother's relatives,

the disproportionate

the toxic, the polluted

the unbalanced, ill and the argumentative;

the young and unmarried; the easily exploited, who has no equality no contract

the litigious and accusatory;

criminals and victims;

those who break promises;

the clinical physicians and human services ministers;

the exploited and disenfranchised;

one's servants and animals;

the conflict-oriented

those detached (12th-from) diplomacy and alliances

leaders (10th-from) in humanistic thought and teaching


Vrizchika forms a network of friendships with service-providers, and often makes voluntary friendship with one's own servants or employees.

General Suitability of Gems for Vrizchika Lagna

  1. Surya ratna = no, because Surya = karmesha-10 . (Certain exceptions regarding intention to enhance professional recognition, see below.)

  2. Chandra ratna = yes! because Chandra = dharmesha-9

  3. Mangala ratna = possibly, with caution for health effects - because Mangala = lagnesha and rogesha-6 (will depend on position of Chandra)

  4. Budha ratna = no, because Budha = randhresha-8 and L-11

  5. Guru ratna = yes, unless the person is near death, because Guru = vidyapathi-5 and L-2

  6. Zukra ratna = no, because Zukra = yuvatipathi-7 and ruler-of-12

  7. Shani ratna = possibly, with caution - because Shani = bhratrupathi-3 and bandesha-4 (will depend on position of Chandra)

  8. Rahu-ratna = unknown, depends on Rahu's ruler

  9. Ketu-ratna = unknown, depends on Ketu's lord.

There are exceptions to all of these general rules which are caused by the position of Chandra, the active Vimshottari time lords, and the native 's personal goals, inter alia.

For example if Vrischika-native is positively sure that one wants to gain money no matter the consequence, Budha ratna will stimulate randhresha-8 for secret sources of funds and Vriddhipathi-11 for marketplace earnings.

The consequences of activating the randhresha-8 can be quite shocking, including a life lived in clouds of suspicion and mistrust, being hunted by predators, minute-to-minute consciousness of the pending circumstances of death, etc. but yes indeed one will get income.

Sane people will walk away from this opportunity as a rule but if Chandra occupies Mithuna and there are other good reasons, it is possible to prescribe a panna even for Vrizchika lagna.

The Nodal Bhava Pair for Vrizchika Lagna : bhava-1 and bhava-4

The"nodal house pair" the two domains which are Afflicted by association with the"unholy trinity": Rahu-Ketu + Shani + Mangala.

These are the two domains which are controlled by Vrizchika * Mangala co-ruler with Ketu * and Kumbha * Shani co-ruler with Rahu * respectively.

Vrizchika and Vitality: Death is not the end

Vrizchika = re-birth = that (largely) invisible, psychic, soul-based transformation of the container of the vital energy which all sentient creatures continuously endure.

  • In Kuja's capacity as natural governor of randhra bhava-8, Mangala can enforce numerous transformations of the container for an individual vital being (virtual rebirths) within any apparently fleshly lifetime.

  • For example major surgery, deep therapeutic healing, emergence from catastrophic change, tantrik magic, can all effect a vital rebirth.

  • Mangala is the natural regulator of bhava-8. bhava-8 determines conditions of death; however it is important to understand that death is a VITAL PROCESS and certainly not the"end" of anything.

Death is a material point upon a cycle of continuous movement of vital energy from form to form This energy-cycle is directed by Professor Mangala.

For Vrishabha lagna and Vrizchika lagna

Budha-Ketu bhukti

Potential Divorce signification

Vimshottari dasha each Budha period is always followed by a Ketu period.

  • Budha = L-2 for Vrishabha and randhresha-8 for Vrischika. Thus lord of 2 or 8, which is a divorce trigger, is followed by influence of"surrender" Ketu.

  • Should the marriage be on shaky grounds before the Budha bhukti begins, and if other factors are present such as Budha ruling or located in an argumentative position,

  • then marital disintegration may start in a Budha period to be followed by abandonment and an exclamation of"I give up" during the immediately subsequent Ketu period.

  • During certain long mahadasha (Zukra, Budha, Rahu, Shani) the Budha and Ketu periods are proportionally quite long also, therefore the script of argument (Budha) followed by apathy, despair of improvement, and ultimately abandonment, is given a long playing time in the script.

Raja Yoga for Vrizchika lagna

Mangala + Surya

  • Mark Twain * parivartamsha yoga

~~ BPHS, Ch. 40, Sloka 13

"An exchange of Rashi between Karma's Lord and Lagna's Lord

will make the native associated with the king in a great manne r."

~~ BPHS, Ch. 5, Sloka 41

"If the lord of the Lagna and the 10th exchange houses with each other, then they form a Raja Yoga.

They will confer high position, reputation and power."

Natural communities, friendship networks, and sangha

Kanya : befriends

  • the mother's relatives ,

  • the unbalanced, ill and the argumentative;

  • the young and unmarried;

  • the litigious and accusatory;

  • criminals and victims;

  • those who break promises;

  • those less concerned with promise-keeping, trust, diplomacy and alliances;

  • the clinical physicians and human services ministers;

  • the exploited and disenfranchised; one's servants and animals; the conflict-oriented

Health for Vrizchika lagna

rogesha-6 = Kuja

Vrizchika lagna is more likely to have physically-based health problems.

  • The physical manifestations of illness are not too mysterious. They tend toward the obvious fleshly wounding of the Mesha warrior aggressive actions: bruises, brain concussion, fevers from infection, cuts and gashes, breaks from collision or fall, blood disease.

  • The origin of Vrizchika's ailment = usually explicitly physical, and often traceable to sport or competitive contests with the brothers (Mangala), male peers (Mangala), soldiers, police, or animals (e.g. hunting injuries).

  • rogesha-6 = the contract-dissolver. In contractual relationships, during the period of rogesha-6 , the native will struggle with impulsiveness and a tendency to break promises (6). If other factors suggest impending dissolution of marriage, Mangala periods may signal divorce.

  • However physical health will be robust

If rogesha-6 Kuja also occupies the Vrizchika radix lagna,

  • the native 's life = fraught with physical conflict. The individual is exceptionally competitive to the point of chronic, often destructive, aggressiveness.

  • However this is not an uncomfortable situation because Kuja = lagnesha

  • The physical frustration inherent in this configuration often drives the native to careers military or police service. If Shani is involved with Kuja (yuti or drishti or parivartamsha) the aggression can be channeled into corporate career"climbing" up the status hierarchy, often yielding material and social success.

Power of Parivartamsha Yoga involving Kuja, for Vrizchika lagna:

  • Four parivartamsha yoga possibilities for Kuja lagnesha:

Mangala-Maraka + Shani in Vrizchika - this yoga is the best for material gain because:

  • Professor Shani is the gainful 11th-from his tenant Kuja,

  • while lagnesha Kuja is self-made-wealth 3rd-from his tenant Shani.


Mangala-Kumbha + Shani in Vrizchika - this yoga is the best for public status , respect, and professional recognition because:

  • Professor Shani is the respectful 10th-from his tenant Kuja,

  • while Professor Kuja is the social-emotional security 4th-from his tenant Shani.


Mangala-Maraka + Shani-Meza

this yoga is also good for public status and professional recognition because the same 4/10 yoga obtains.

  • nichha-Shani will occupy the dushthamsha 6th house karmicly obliging the person to handle the suffering of the masses - poverty, disease, hatred

  • yet Shani emerges through the parivartamsha into the very powerful nichha-bhanga condition,

  • causing the person to rise very high in organizations which serve the suffering.

  • There may be much combat in this life

  • but the person has undeniable business skills from the uttama lagnesha Kuja

  • Kuja will give increasingly obvious results after age 28.

  • Superior performance in military settings.


Mangala-Kumbha + Shani-Meza =

Professor Shani is self-made-wealth 3rd from his tenant Kuja,

while Professor Kuja occupies the gainful 11th from his tenant Shani.

Wealth may be gained via unscrupulous means involving exploitation,

and there may be profound emotional turmoil ( with an abstract, philosophical calm in the eye of the hurricane)

but the person gains tremendous worldly power

  • = emotional need to be in control

  • needs a degree of secrecy and hidden psychological values in sexual relationships

  • needs to pursue the forbidden and the unknown

  • affinity for shocking revelations, especially in Vishaka

  • Often emotionally traumatized in childhood

  • hides money

  • the mother may be exceptionally invasive , controlling and prone to live in a state of constant emotional emergency

  • may be a"crisis junkie " wants things to be a in state of upheaval, disaster, threat to life, and will create an emergency even when there is none, in order to feel needed emotionally

  • at the highest levels of consciousness, may be a tantrik yogi and healing facilitator of intentional cycles of self-destruction and rebirth

  • Parental, sensitive and intuitive when in the presence of death .

  • Can be a deeply healing figure at times of catastrophic change.

From radix lagna, Moon-Sun always = the auspicious 9th and 10th lords:

Chandra = matrikaraka and Surya = pitrikaraka

Chandra-Surya working as a team jointly rule dharma-bhava-9 and karma-bhava-10.

Due to the background influence of the personalities of the mother (Chandra) and the father (Surya) a Vrizchika native is typically predisposed to assume responsibilities for both philosophical teaching (9) and public leadership (10).

The self-concept shaped by both parents contains a high level of certainty regarding one's inherent capabilities.

When the Scorpio lagna person looks in the mirror, s/he sees one destined to guide the people.

The details of how they guide their people depend largely on the house and sign position of Surya and Chandra, drishti to the luminaries, and other adjustments to the general truth that when Ravi is 10th lord the person is born to rule, and when Chandra is 9th lord the moral and religious intuition is highly developed.


For example, Vrischika-lagna containing; Surya-yuti-Chandra in Mesha-bhava-6 may lead his people via trade and financial services. This combination = Black Moon of course, so often the money rules him rather than him ruling the money!

By contrast Vrischika-lagna with Surya powerful in Simha-bhava-10 while Soma occupies Meena-bhava-5 = more likely to express her leadership empowerments (10) via professional education and the literary arts. The the Surya-Chandra relationship suffers from an awkward 6/8 angle (indicating a childhood imbalance-seeking-a-remedy between the mother and the father). This yoga of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy is less amenable to a friendly expression of leadership intelligence. Although the native may be respected for her bright public visibility due to the powerful position of Surya-Simha-10, one may feel the emotional pull of individual creativity from Chandra-Meena-5 and act in an autocratic fashion. The end result could be a political personality which is not entirely trustworthy by the electorate which seeks a leader who is both consistently reliable and radiantly bright. One may be accused of contradictory behaviors due to inner and outer self being not fully coordinated = the 6/8 angle.;

Another arrangement might be Surya-Kanya-11 while Chandra occupies Meena-5. Chandra as dharmapathi brings much intelligence via vidya-bhava-5 and when Surya occupies the 7th from Chandra, the White Moon (full moon) obtains, giving smooth coordination of inner and outer self-concepts in the world. Professional expression is sensible to the public. Material gains and honors via Surya-11; are granted for work of creativity via Sauma-5 and advising relationships are supported via 7/7 yoga Sun-Moon.
