Chandra-Dhanavana always

Chandra matrikaraka indicates Mother-figure and Primary Caretakers

Chandra rules 8th-from-Chandra * This angle produces a natural awkwardness with the Mother which occurs for all births of Chandra in Dhanuzya The 8th-from angle suggests that the Mother is a somewhat unpredictable shape-shifting figure who may change her emotional behavior and perhaps also her physical appearance. The native often cultivates an alternative identity, and may be able to under certain circumstances live two lives (such as extramarital affairs or government espionage).

If Chandra in Mula, the mother-figure and caretaker-figures are likelier to display various disorders of the personality-mind reflecting an internal chaos. The internal incoherence may however be fully compensated by a protective external facade.


Calif-Gov 1947- Terminator Arnold Schwarzenegger married Calif-Gov-pair 1955- journalist Maria O. Shriver who is a professional television journalist and book-writer

  • Calif-Gov 1947- Terminator Arnold Schwarzenegger married Calif-Gov-pair 1955- journalist Maria O. Shriver who is a professional television journalist and book-writer. His Budha located in 7th-from-Chandra Mithunaya emphasizes the planning, management, message-delivery, evangelical, cooperative, transactional nature of his wife's communication skills.

Because the ruler of Mithunaya rashi = 7th-from-Chandra -Dhanushya = Professor Budha who is adversarial toward Chandra, these natives may experience a degree of psycho-mental animosity with life-partner-1. The conflict is typically emotional communication with the two partners being generally "not on the same wavelength".

  • Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt was famously first-married to Friends 1969- drama-commerce Jennifer Aniston. Pitt's life-partner-1 is represented by his Rahu-Mithunaya -8 thus the couple did share the much-photographed cinematic lifestyle . Yet Mr. Pitt complained that while both much-publicized, they did not enjoy interpersonal communication. His second marriage to Mighty Heart 1975- drama-activist Angelina Jolie = reportedly more comfortable and conventional. (his 2nd-spouse = bhava-3 Makara-Zukra-Shani)

Dhanuzya-Chandra in bhava-12

May be particularly uncomfortable for marriage matters for the Makara radical lagna because 7th-from-Chandra-12 becomes bhava-6 AND Chandra ruling yuvatibhava enters 6th-from-7th suggesting marital conflict.

  • Liberia-Pres 1938- Ellen Johnson Sirleaf suffered continuous violence at the hands of her jealous-raging husband. After divorce, her life calmed and she dedicated her energies to career along with raising her children.

Dhanushya Chandra Characteristics

Emotionally challenging placement. Needs to generate logical argumentation; thus often gifted mathematically and may be excellent military strategists or diagnosing physicians.

Generally one maintains a conflicted (6) relationship toward parents (Chandra) and may experience significant inner emotional conflict as well. Often has an affectionate relationship to the the mother's younger sibling and the servants. May often feel betrayed.

Chandra-Dhanuzya-6 may indicate emotionally motivated digestive difficulties and swelling for Karkata radical lagna.

Dhanushya is never an easy placement for Professor Chandra's classroom.

Emotionally the nature of Chandra-Dhanuzya relates to the dissolution of the first-marriage partnership agreements, social imbalance-seeking-a-remedy, illness, conflict, and crime.

Spouse-1 represented by Mithunaya is often a writer, announcer, skilled messenger-communicator or commercial businessperson.

  • POTUS-01 American Revolution 1732-1799 George Washington * Chandra-yuti-Rahu-10. In 1759 during Rahu-Rahu swabhukti, he married Martha Custis, a financially privileged widow and expert businesswoman. She managed a large and profitable agricultural estate and personally negotiated tobacco prices with wholesale buyers.

  • Wizard of Oz 1922-1969 Judy Garland first marriage to a professional songwriter. Also her 7th-from-Chandra contains Zukra-yuti-Budha emphasizing the partner's communicative musical arts.

The second union if any may be easier depending on graha in 2nd-from-Dhanushya = Makara as well as graha controlling bhava-2.

Chandra-Dhanuzya = naturally beneficial for priestly, preaching, ritual-performance, and professorial ministries of service to the less fortunate, particularly to those suffering from bodily illness.

Needs and nourished by humanistic wisdom

Emotional need to expand celestial awareness .

When Chandra-Dhanuzya looks in the mirror, one sees a preceptor, a generous giver of wisdom teachings, or a holy priest who wizens others through greater understanding of the Divine will.

Chandra-Dhanuzya sees in oneself a beloved guru who leads humankind upward, following a path of enlightenment, into a better, brighter future.

One's fundamental emotional drive is to provide the knowledge, support, and confidence that create progress in the great civilizations. It is understood that death precedes rebirth - that without death, no new life is possible.

Chandra-Dhanuzya = attracted to large-scale, catastrophic events and their phoenix-rising potential for a clean new rebirth.

Success (or not) in seeing their vision of a better future realized, will depends on the health of Professor Guru .

If Guru = swakshetra (Dhanuzya, Meena) or uttama (Karkata)

  • one may be filled with a missionary zeal to improve the world upon ineffable cosmic principles.

Usually but not always it is a compassionate mission, motivated by an authentic desire to help lowly persons achieve more prosperity and understanding in their lives.

Similar to the Meena-Chandra, Dhanuzya-Chandra enjoys Guru's wide perspective. Yet, unlike Meena which can live and let live, Dhanuzya-Somana is powerfully driven to deliver what it feels are essential and positive changes.

May signify an early-life ideologue who later gets wise. Most frequently, unsustainable idealism a feature of the Moola Moon but other portions of Dhanushya-Doctrine can produce dogmatic idealism as well.

  • Savitri 1872-1950 Shri Aurobindo Ghose * Shani-yuti-Chandra * Chandra-5 parivartamsha Guru-12 . Aravinda Ackroyd Ghosh was a passionate revolutionary in the political movement for Independent India. He accepted - even promoted - violence as a tool for political change. After his youthful idealist period, he retreated from politics completely, transforming his identity into the poet and spiritual guide, * Mula

  • Opus Dei 1902-1975 St. Josemaria Escriva + Shani-yuti-Surya

  • Tantra 1931-1990 professor OSHO Rajneesh * Chandra-yuti-Shani * Chandra-yuti-Mangala * Chandra-yuti-Zukra * Chandra-yuti-Budha

  • Calif-Gov 1947- Terminator Arnold Schwarzenegger

  • Pucci Prints 1914-1992 Emilio Pucci was a vigorous supporter of Fascist Ideology in his idealistic youth, but after seeing the bloody horror of its outcomes during his military service, he eschewed Fascism for the rest of his life.

  • POTUS-05-pair 1777-1830 Elizabeth Monroe * Chandra-yuti-Rahu * she and her husband POTUS-5 were supporters of the French Revolution and family friends of Napoleon. However when James Monroe was recalled to Washington for over-reaching, they toned down their revolutionary sentiments

The tremendous expansive power of Guru propels great social-change programs - for better or worse.

Galloping toward Truth

If there is a Dhanuzya-Somana person in your life, be sure to acknowledge their true motive. They seek to educate, to improve , to burn the sacrificial fires of true religion.

One's highest instinct is to strengthen and purify the bond between the brilliant, clear world of the all-knowing deities and the often foggy, groping-for-truth world of humankind.

Innocent bystanders are often caught in the whirlwind tornado of Dhanuzya's enthusiasm to discover the truth. However it is rarely Dhanuzya's intention to harm. They come to make positive change and to show truth in its many guises.

In their own sometimes excessive (Guru) way, Dhanuzya Chandra natives are trying to execute the mandate of priesthood, as they feel it (Soma feelings). Chandra is emotionally sensitive, responsive, and potentially reactive (consider incoming drishti). Often the Dhanuzya native oneself does not understand the mandate intellectually.

Intuitively reacts to a constitutional hunger for the excitement of broad, doctrinally motivated risk that might end up exposing the truth.

This characteristic can create

a brilliant, against-all-odds transformative educator

or an awful 'purifying' tyrant

The galloping energy of Dhanuzya's race toward improvement can feel wearisome or even downright invasive to others. Dhanuzya-Somana folks may need to be reminded (kindly) that most people prefer to trot at a slower pace upon their path to enlightenment.

The Feminine partner, The Sister, The feminine co-worker

Measured from the Dhanushya Chandra lagna, rogesha-6 and Vriddhipathi-11 Zukra represents female companions.

rogesha-6 Zukra can disturb inner balance and outer relationships. But simultaneously Vriddhipathi-11 meets material goals with grace and diplomacy, and one gains income. Wives, sisters, and feminine companions such as coworker, female roommate, and other feminine-figures tend to embody the combined patterns of 6-conflict as well as 11-gainfulness. They are both problematic and friendly. Much will depend upon graha residing in 6 or 11.

Males with Dhanuzya-Chandra may feel (Chandra) that they have more than their fair share of marital conflict, and this is often demonstrated vividly due to their emotional reaction to women in general (not mother).

Zukra represents many roles for women in one's life, but not the mother-roles. Mother and mother-figure caretakers such as nanny, grandma, daycare = Chandra.

Marriage and Qualities of the Life-Partner

Contractual Partnerships and Trusts

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

7th from Dhanuzya-Chandra = Mithuna.

The partner = "constant conversation". Life-mate is typically a media-and-meetings businessperson with noted commercial skills and communicative abilities.

  • the lovely wife of POTUS-05 Monroe Doctrine 1758-1831 James Monroe * Dhanushya * was said to have been constantly albeit delightfully talkative in her younger years; by which trait she greatly aided her husband's diplomatic career

  • POTUS-01 American Revolution 1732-1799 George Washington * Dhanuzya-Chandra-yuti-Rahu * George married POTUS-pair-01 tobacco 1731-1802 Martha Washington. She was a highly successful businesswoman who owned numerous slave-labor plantations and bargained her own prices with the tobacco wholesalers to the British markets. His 7th-from-Chandra-10 = bhava-4 indicates her land-owning basis. However Ketu in 7th-from-Chandra-10 shows that his interest in their bond was rather apathetic.

  • POTUS-pair-41; POTUS-43 mother 1925-2018 Barbara Bush * Dhanushya * married POTUS-41 All the Best 1924- George H.W. Bush . Mr. Bush's business acumen = notable as he became one of the richest men in the USA while creating a climate of commercial advantage via his political involvements. Her Chandra-2 in mutual aspect to Zukra-Thula-8 would suggest that most of these enriching benefits were undisclosed to the public.

Parenting = Chandra-Dhanuzya

Karkata the rashi of sheltering, parenting, protection and foundational schooling occupies the identity-transformative, suddenly changing, and often hidden activity of the 8th-from-Chandra .

5th-from-Dhanushya = Mesha

  • Competitive performance and winning = important.
  • Child has a sporting, energetic, warrior's personality + a strong bond with brothers.
  • Brothers and male friends in general are beneficial for this child.

Difficult Angles:

  • 12th-from Dhanuzya-Chandra = Vrischika
  • 6th-from Dhanuzya-Chandra = Vrishabha

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

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

6th-from Dhanuzya-Chandra = disagreement-distrust-dispute-divorce = Vrishabha

  • Dhanuzya-Chandra has emotional conflict with human sensuality (Vrishabha).

  • A man's religious intention (Dhanuzya) can be sabotaged by sensual Feminine Nativities.

  • A woman's philosophical convictions (Dhanuzya) can be sabotaged by fine wines, oils, perfumes, and delicious foods.


Guru lord of Dhanushya = expansion, philosophy, humanism, generosity, largeness, broad entitlements

Guru's planetary enemies include Zukra and Budha

Chandra = comfort, security, belongingness.

Emotionally, Dhanuzya-Chandra suffers discomfort with people and environments that emphasize behaviors of Zukra and Budha :

  • pleasuring sensuality (Zukra the Sweety)
  • urge to collect precious items (Zukra the Appreciator)
  • transaction-transmission-conversation (Budha Messenger)
  • information management (Budha) vs wisdom-understanding (Guru)

Zukra rules the problematic 6th-from-Chandra; thus behaviors of Zukra may be challenging to balance or inimical to emotional health.

A Dhanuzya-Chandra person may feel uncomfortable, or become ill, or enter into conflict, when overwhelmed by excess Vrishabha sensuality, such as perfumes, delicious oils, fine wines and delicious foods.

Generally, Dhanuzya-Chandra feels more secure in a one-to-many environment (such as teaching or preaching) rather than a one-to-one environment (such as counseling or interpersonal conversation).

Preacher - Teacher - Pandit - Priest

Naturally, Dhanuzya-Chandra has normal human relationships. Yet the one-to-one partnership (Zukra) and its mundane daily conversations (Budha) often have a rather secondary emotional importance when compared to the preaching, teaching, or professing aspects of life.

Dhanuzya-Chandra recovers its natural rhythm upon return to more suitable environments such as teaching and educational institutions, humanistic philosophical studies, temples and preaching, universities and professorships, global travel, international activities.

Graha in Dhanuzya Vrishabha emotional adversaries

  • very generally, women are signified by Zukra.

  • For a man, Zukra represents his sisters and cousin-sisters, his sisters-in-law, his female marriage partners, his feminine partner in a professional work-pairing (such as male-female police officer pairs) ,

  • relationship partner, sensualists, money-handlers, decorators,

  • contracts, agreements, deals, and promises

  • diplomats, fashion models, bankers and banking systems, wealth hoards,

  • beautician, purveyor of sweets, artist, musicians

For Vrizchika lagna, Vrishabha becomes yuvati bhava, and partnerships particularly marriage may become vexatious.

rogesha-6 +Vriddhipathi-11 Zukra = Dhanuzya-Chandra implicitly feels conditions of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy. May feel annoyed and upset with:

  • excessive accumulations of treasuries and the ostentatiously rich, deeply sensual pleasures esp. love-making, mastery of languages and history; sweet and rich foods and drink; banks and bankers; hoards and collections; those with a beautiful face, voice, eyes, and mouth.

  • The Dhanuzya-Chandra lifetime is easier if Vrishabha rashi has no tenant graha..

Also, that which one dislikes handling is usually also profitable because Zukra is also vriddhipati-11 . (More so if there are graha in Vrishabha.)

Predisposition to Injury and Accident

  • Dhanuzya Chandra is somewhat prone to injury from hoards and accumulations, sensual pleasures, wealth, women and wine. Illnesses of the mother associated with hoarding. Venous diseases due to accumulation in the veins.

The place which is 6th-from-Chandra

  • Whichever bhava = Vrishabha as measured from radix, one will feel unbalanced or uneasy in that bhava. E.g., for a Dhanuzya Chandra with Kanya radix lagna, Vrishabha becomes bhava-9, and one experiences discomfort and imbalance-seeking-a-remedy in the university and the temple. Unless there are positive graha in 9, there is considerable dislike of ceremonial religion and wisdom teachings; one becomes an atheist.


randhresha-8 = Chandra lord of Karkata = neutral toward toward Guru; while Guru is a friend toward Chandra. This is a fairly easy 1-8 relationship.

A natural global philosopher, Dhanushya must deal with Karkata-parochial conditions of localism, folkways practices and beliefs.

Emotional core (Chandra) = geared to religious beliefs and teaching-preaching . Although there is some minor identity upset when Chandra's period imposes a parochial viewpoint upon the more global Guru-ruled Moon, it is usually manageable via Chandra's natural compassion.

10-year long Vimshottari periods of Chandra = conditions of sudden emotional identity change induced by localized ethnic customs and established cultural norms, women, mothers, parents and parenthood, caretaking and sheltering of the weak (very young and very old). Real estate, owned property, buildings, vehicles including animals used for transport such as horses, elephants and oxen, schooling, folk customs, licensing and examinations, security both emotional and physical, patriotism, national defense.

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

  • Tantra 1931-1990 professor OSHO Rajneesh had the emotional destruction and rebirth period of bandesha-4 Chandra parivartamsha dharmesha-9 Guru during his age 12-22. Karkata = 8th rashi from Chandra = his bandhubhava home-and-school. He was in school during the entire 10 yrs of Chandra mahadasha. He began an intensive study of world philosophies at this young age but it was somewhat in conflict with his naturally parochial schoolteachers.

Despite obvious intelligence he was suspended from school several times. Further protection is delivered by uttama- Guru-Karkata -4. The emotional upheaval was distinctively noticeable but the future teacher (Guru-4) emerged with greater knowledge of both local customary beliefs and international philosophical dogma.

Badhaka -sthana = harming-houses houses

Badhaka = 7th from Dhanushya = Mithuna

Budha = badhesha

Masculine Nativities

Chandra-Dhanuzya Rashi

  • QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 193.

"Jovial, frank, kind-hearted and joyous are the persons who have Moon in Sagittarius at birth. They may be recognized by their long necks, long straight noses, large ears and mouths, and big foreheads. Above medium height, slender, but with well-developed shoulders and chest, more often than not with fair complexions and brown eyes.

These people are generous and loyal, industrious and artistic. They are clever and while mentally they are on a high plane , yet at the same time they are also fond of physical exercise, sports especially horseback riding, boxing and wrestling.

They are most loyal to family and relatives and are almost clannish in this respect. While they are amiable and jovial when in good humor.

They have quick tempers which can easily be aroused and they are hasty and arrogant when angry, being apt to lose their sense of proportion entirely.

They should avoid making any decisions when angry as their judgment at that time will be invariably at fault. They are quick to forgive and forget however.

They are very interested in astrology and allied subjects and will read and study along these paths. They would make good lawyers.

Their fortunate gem is the Yellow Diamond and they will find that Thursday is a favorable day in which to start new enterprises."

Rising Nakshatra

Feminine Nativities

Chandra-Dhanuzya Rashi

  • QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 193.

"Small women, somewhat thickset, not fat, but rather with a tendency toward angularity of face and structure. Large foreheads, large teeth. The thighs and legs are strong and muscular, but as they grow older, they develop weaknesses in those parts of the body.

They are religiousby nature, joyous, generous and lovable, always giving a helping hand to others in times of difficulty or trouble. They are ambitious and always have a circle of friends around them who help them along when need arises.

They are healthy, partly because they make a fetish of good health and buoyant spirits. They are jolly souls, who hold no grudges but are generous and forgiving to those who hurt them.

They are usually accounted fortunate and successful and they attain these states not only because of their helpful and cooperative dispositions but also because they work conscientiously and joyously.

These women love life and get the most out of it. They are artistic in their homes and in their careers if they do not marry.

They usually have more sons than daughters, sometimes having all male children. Their mental attitude toward life and its problems seems to keep them sailing joyously through any troubles."

Chandra Mahadasha

for Chandra-Dhanuzya Rashi

  • QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 236

"During this period the individual must not expect to benefit from the voluntary deeds of others.

His friends will not help him financially,

  • not because they do not wish to, but rather because they are unable to do so.

Expected legacies or bequests from family or relatives will not materialize,

  • in fact may be lost entirely.

However, this is a period of vitality

and through his own determined efforts the individual can and usually will attract to himself the good things of life.

If he makes this effort, his finances will be considerably improved."
