"The Rashi Dhanushya rises with its head and is lorded by Guru.
It is a Sattvic Rashi and is tawny in hue.
It has strength in night and is fiery.
A royal Rashi, Dhanushya is biped in first half. Its second half is quadruped.
It has an even build and
adores an arch.
It resides in the East, resorts to land and is splendorous."
| Phala Deepika
Mantreshvara shloka 9.9
|| “The person
with Sagittarius ascendant at birth will have a long
neck and face with large nose and ears. |

He will be self-sacrificing and eloquent in speech.
will be short of stature.
He will be courageous
and will overcome his enemies.
He will be
wealthy and the favorite of the king,
He can be
won over by persuasion and kindness.”

that sensual pleasure, wealth, music, and beauty
are the keys to life.

General Suitability of Gems for Dhanuzya lagna
Surya ratna = yes! because Surya = dharmesha-9 dharmapati
Chandra ratna = no-no-no, generally, because Chandra = randhresha-8 and does not rules any other house
Mangala ratna = yes, because Mangala = vidyapathi-5 and ruler-of-12
Budha ratna = probably not, because Budha = yuvatipathi-7 and karmesha-10 (although there are important exceptions for building career)
Guru ratna = yes, almost always, because Guru = the auspicious lagnesha and L-4
Zukra ratna = no-no-no, because Zukra = rogesha-6 and L-11
Shani ratna = no, because money-maker Shani = L-2 and bhratrupathi-3
Rahu-ratna = unknown, depends on Rahu's ruler
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.

Bill Gates Sr. (father of the Microsoft 1955- philanthropist Bill Gates)
dramatist, philanthropist Paul Newman
Guru + Budha-Dhanuzya lagna
An exchange of Rashi between Karma's Lord and Lagna's Lord will make the native associated with the king in a great manner. ~~ BPHS, Ch. 40, Sl. 13
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. ~~ BPHS, Ch. 5, Sl. 41

Health for Dhanushya
Due to Zukra's ruling 6 and 6th-from-6, typically have quite a bit of trouble with the range of Venusian significators (especially during Zukra periods)
partnerships and alliances of all kinds
Care and caution are needed when making agreements for personal and business partnerships
the terms of agreement should be clear and explicit; avoid presumptions
Art and music; the Muse;
rich food and drink
wives, marriage, and women in general * Dhanuzya
In the nativity of a husband-figure is somewhat prone to divorce due to challenges with the wife-figure, female boss, female coworkers
et-cetera however Dhanushya
in the nativity of a wife-figure is less problematic for marriage and more beset by challenges with sisters, lady cousins, aunts, female neighbors, girl schoolmates.
For Dhanushya the mother, too, may become problematic due to Chandra randhresha
wealth and the value of stored goods, which tends to follow a pattern of high-highs and low-lows
rogesha-6 = Zukra
Dhanuzya lagna is more likely to have relationship and sensuality-based health problems.
The physical manifestations can range from nervous disorders to muscle malfunctions to formation of tumors, and many other disease results.
Sexually transmitted diseases.
However the origin of Dhanushya's ailment is usually explicitly social-relational, and often traceable to sensual indulgence (Zukra) or relationship
imbalance-seeking-a-remedy with the spouse.
Both genders have karmic trouble in their relationships with women. Males have a tendency to exploit (6) the female partner.
If rogesha-6 +Vriddhipathi-11 Zukra is also in the Dhanushya radix lagna or Zukra-Vrishabha in 6:
Male Dhanushya native with Zukra in lagna is often a much-married individual.
Truth Be Told 1933- interviewer Larry King =8 marriages
Life is fraught with marriage conflict. There can be deep animosity toward women yet a sweet love of them at the same time. It is perplexing.
* akarshana * to prostitutes, beautiful servants, animals, or women withdebt problems.
Marital arguments about money and debt, no matter if the couple is
financially privileged or poor. the native may be oddly stingy with the spouse whilst showing sweet nicety toward others.
* especially marriage * frustration inherent in this configuration may become unbearable, which can drive the native to take urgent steps toward self-healing.
Remedy = Seva offered to
Wat Benchamabophit Dusitvanaram in Bangkok, Thailand
Special Yoga for Dhanuzya lagna :
B.V. Raman, Three Hundred Important Combinations(10th ed., Delhi, 1991).:
If the exalted lord of the 7th occupies the 10th
AND the lord of the I0th is with the 9th lord,
the native will have on his body the insignia of Vishnu, viz., the conch, the wheel, etc., be an agreeable speaker, godly, have a good wife and children and
be loved by all.
Sreenatha Yoga may be said to be one of the important
Raja Yoga, inasmuch as a point of contact is established between the 7th, 9th and 10th houses.
It is held to give rise to power as well as wealth . The lord of the 7th should be invariably exalted in the 10th, the lord of which, in turn, must be with the 9th lord.
Obviously Sreenatha Yoga can occur only in respect of Sagittarius in which case Mercury, lord of the 7th, could remain exalted in the 10th.
Since the original writers have laid emphasis on the fact that the 7th lord should be in the 10th exalted, we have to conclude that the Yoga is a rare one and that it cannot arise with regard to any other sign of the zodiac than Sagittarius ..."
Dhanushya in lagna or Chandra lagna faces a special set of marriage challenges.
the partnership suffers from addictions or other impoverishing behavior of excessive sweet as well as argumentative and jealous
however the partner is also materially gainful and has a large social network of females and those earning in the market for luxury products
the partner is often involved in impoverishing (6) financial (Zukra) activities such as loan-taking (credit cards or inflated-interest mortgages for example). Also the partner may have addictions (Zukra + 6) and sugar-related health problems.
and the partner may (seem to) invest a good deal of value (Zukra) in forming social network relationship focused on earnings such as "network marketing"and other methods which involve a predominance of beauty items and women.
It depends upon Zukra's character placement whether the earnings from 11 outweigh the expenses of 6. As a rule there is considerable "motion without progress" when Zukra = both rogesha-6 and L-11, as gains are quickly spent for medicines or luxuries (Zukra) and the earnings cycle starts from zero again.
rogesha-6 Zukra's problematic argumentiveness = reinforced by Guru's negative relationship to natural rogesha-6 Budha (below).
Guru-Budha animosity = contempt or patronizing attitudes in marriage
Lagnesha (self) Guru tends to look down on Budha as a minor player, adolescent in behavior, restricted in view due to immaturity and excessive mentalization, not capable of wisdom-knowledge. Budha is seen by Guru as impressionable, short-attention-span, calculating but not comprehending, overly sexualized, frivolously chatty, and often quite annoying.
This dynamic can play out in marriage when the Guru-ruled native bonds with a Budha-ized spouse whose philosophical scope of awareness is rather limited and busy with superficial details (Budha).
The spouse characteristically has more interest in repetitive and commercial communications, which may annoy the broad-thinking, religiously comprehensive Guru identified Dhanushya native.
Shani rules-2 from Dhanushya = lagna for Second marriage = Makara
Shani = mutually neutral toward Guru
the second marriage partner is noticeably more pragmatic and mature
second marriage tends to be easier, albeit the overall signification of Zukra as karaka for partnership remains somewhat problematic regarding illness, disagreement, or addiction of the partner (6) and luxury orientation in the marketplace (11)

"IX. Dhanuzya (Sagittarius).
When represented in numbers the name is equivalent to 9, and the division in question is the 9th division counting from Mesha.
The sign, therefore, clearly indicates the 9 Brahmas -- the 9 Parajapatis who assisted the Demiurgus in constructing the material universe."

Generally tall with a large forehead, high and bushy eyebrows , long nose, bright eyes, graceful look, fair complexion and handsome figure.
