Summary of Nine Graha Rulership Portfolio
with remedial ratna general recommendation for Meza nativities
lagna * ligne * line of
Taukshika * Haya
The Dhanushya native normally presents a great intelligence matched with potentially great pride in one's theoretical, doctrinal, or philosophical wisdom. One's portfolio of world travel; one's membership in some priesthood of higher learning.
Particularly when Mula nakshatra rises within Dhanushya, the Taukshika-born may develop into extraordinary figures who have the power to disregard (Ketu) existing doctrine (Dhanushya):
For the Dhanushya nativity, Ravi controls the all-good dharma bhava , site of priestly discourse, doctrine, and philosophical discussion.
Simha = Ravi's moolatrikona rashi = identical to Dhanuzya's dharmasthana.
Surya = usually exhibits as affinity for public religion, although in a predictably orthodox fashion which is more oriented to charismatic, entertaining and self-reflexive (Surya) expressions of public piety and less to the quiet, invisible realm of private prayer.
Special capability for fire-* worth-ship * worship and ancient rituals of the agnihoma.
Surya = karaka for charisma, glamour, brilliance, ego, soul, and Divine Intelligence. If Surya is very well disposed, may produce a magnificent preacher or priest, or a brilliant theologian or professor of religious studies.
Father * Surya = pitri-karaka
Dhanuzya radical lagna often indicates a benevolent father. Yet Dhanuzya lagna may provide a challenge in regard to the mother, since Karkata = randhasthana-8.
Father is related to matters of bhava-9 including "divine right" entitlements of royalty (9 =5th-from-5th) teaching-preaching, proselytizing, promulgation of doctrine, international humanism, theory, theology, philosophy, divinity, aristocratic patronage of charitable causes, and public provision of spiritual guidance from the gods. The father is often a university professor or theorist with international humanistic appeal.
The father = philosophical, although strong-willed; and confident, although possibly rather egoistic due to karako bhavo nashto. Father may be a religious guidance figure in the native's birth community. The flesh-father may pale in importance to the spiritual director such as the guru or high-priest; indeed Dhanushya may consider the spiritual father to be the genuine father.
Because Surya = Bright Light that receives public recognition, and Ravi = dharmesha-9 for Dhanuzya lagna
Dhanushya = somewhat disposed toward to accept high-visibility roles and professional leadership responsibilities within universities, temples (9) and world traveling religious or philosophical groups (9) .
Under auspice of a strong Surya, the Dhanuzya lagna may produce a celebrity in the fields of religion, philosophy, moral teachings, or international travel pursuits.
Example environments include ritual priesthood, university professor, specialties of sacred literature and wisdom teaching, temple-based education, religious missionary, preacher, moral talks.
Ravi = ruler-of-12 from 10th

Professor Chandra rules randhrabhava-8
Chandra randhresha grants a particularly intuitive understanding and ability for matters of occult or undisclosed knowledge, hidden forces and secret relationships, and sudden change of circumstances or new identities often seen in healing and emergency intervention roles.
Radical Dhanushya nativities emotionally need (Chandra) to feel secure in their occult knowledge. There is a tangible emotional hunger to access to confidential information, and to be engaged in emergency response behaviors such as disaster-preparedness.
They want to able to "go with the flow" when emergencies strike.
They are comfortable when they have the ability to predict the rhythms of cyclical upheaval in all environments (physical, emotional, mental, financial, social, spiritual...)
A foundational insight in the understanding of Dhanushya nativities = the emotional needs of randhresha-8 Chandra.
As randhresha, Chandra instills an emotional need for hidden identity protected by of Soma's habitual, stabilizing behaviors.
Wanting stable, grounded, and rooted experience, one feels secure when engaged in masked, occult activities which are emotionally drive by one's need for stability in times of upheaval. This content of the secret is known by only a few tantric companions - perhaps a reliable group of long time neighbors and family members who have practice emergency drills, have stored survival supplies etc.
Hidden relationships or hidden resources, which is to say those relationships that are only awakened when there is a bhava-8 type eruption of hidden forces, are required for emotional vitality.
The content of the typical"emergence" of new life and new identity-within-old-containers is determined by Chandra's bhava, rashi, and incoming drishti, as well as the gradually cycling relationships between Chandra and the current mahadasha-pathi.
Mahadasha of Chandra = typically a period of maximum reconstruction of the identity, including catastrophic and surgical changes.
In a more domestic nativity, however,"identity change" may take the form of reliable and consistent healing role within the family home or in local community, such as schoolteaching, parenting, or policing.
The transformative agency of randhresha-8 Soma does not have to be glamorous or high-titled; in fact, Chandra prefers to move in the rhythm of the local environment.
Psycho-emotional predisposition: Chandra rules bhava-8
Dhanuzya lagna has a psycho-emotional predisposition to expect that access to secret associations and confidential information will provide their security and protection .
Chandra-8 feels happiest , albeit not always successful but indeed happiest, in mysterious roles that express healing behaviors.
Roles such as psychotherapist, surgeon, psychic intuitive, money launderer, silent business partner, secret sexual partner, or as the holder of highly confidential information in secure positions such as executive secretary or military officer.
Chandra's radix and navamsha rashi and any drishti to Chandra will show the native 's specific style of pursuing security and emotional fulfillment.
Typically these natives expect to gain social and emotional stability by investing in hidden information and secret relationships. They often live two lives, one public and one private - and profit thereby. Despite their desire for secure protection, they are prone toward intrigue and may face a lifetime of sudden, unpredictable psycho-emotional upheavals including health crises.
Both the native and one's mother may suffer mysterious, medically un-diagnosable illnesses which a psychic would know to have emotional causes.
The mother takes a hidden role, potentially in the fashion of an unpredictable or disruptive emotional force if Chandra is subject to unbalanced drishti. Yet when Chandra is moderated by other graha the style of secret influence may be"power behind the throne".
The highly fluctuating and impressionable Chandra regulates and empowers randhra bhava, the house of magical transformative healing, emergencies, and hidden or highly confidential information.
for many all nativities, there is a pattern of the feminine intuitive subconscious draining the energy from the masculine productive consciousness (Chandra always rules 12th from Surya's house)
for Dhanuzya lagna, this pattern is often exacerbated within the family. Chandra becomes the mysterious randhresha-8 while Surya strives to preach wisdom as the Spiritually Guiding dharmesha-9 . Dhanushya men may have extra trouble with women who may seem to drain their vital, worshipful, self-righteous life force (9).

Professor Guru = lagnesha-1 / L-4
Wise and expansive Guru defines the physical body level of social personality identity, and personality integrity, as well as the native 's approach toward matters of education and property ownership. A natural humanistic educator.
Vimshottari Dasha of Brihaspati
Depending on characteristics of Brihaspati according to yuti-graha, rashi, drishti. and bhava, Guru Mahadasha for the Dhanushya radical nativity is generally a period of great vitality and great expansion of home and hearth.
Guru's mulatrikona being Dhanushya, overall effects of kalpa-bhava-1 are generally somewhat stronger than the effects of bandhusthana-4.
Because Brihaspati is lagnesha and bandhu-pathi for the Dhanushya nativity, it is a common experience that a steady stream of individuality-confirming, appearance-enhancing activities and events would accompany a great abundance in matters of home-culture, folkways, property ownership, schooling, fishing-and-farming, and vehicles during this 16-year mahadasha. It is generally a very comfortable, healthy and happy period of time although overexpansion of the physique may be noted.

"For the Sagittarius Ascendant

rogesha-6 + L-11
For the Dhanushya nativity, Labhapathi and rogesha Zukra combines a generally problematic influence emitting from bhava-6 conditions of conflict and imbalance, along with the friendliness and profitability associated with bhava-11. Periods of Zukra produce a combination of energized goal achievement and extension of the social network, along with nearly continuous relationship conflict or interaction with persons of imbalanced intent such as criminals, addicts, or accusers. rogesha-6 Zukra can disturb inner balance and outer relationships. But simultaneously Vriddhipathi-11 meets material goals with grace and diplomacy, and the native gains income from the bhava in which Zukra resides. Much will depend also upon graha residing in 6 or 11.
If Zukra occupies bhava-1 or Zukra-yuti-Chandra, the relationship drama can be heightened. Zukra-yuti-Chandra is generally an emotional experience of frustration and indulgence, and the outcome depends on which bhava are ruled by Zukra from the baseline of Chandra's rashi.
The most vividly demonstrated social-material effects occur when Zukra occupies bhava-1 : both outcomes of dramatic material goal achievement and earnings (11) and also nearly perpetual conflict in health, relationships, and a drama of broken promises. rogesha-6 and Vriddhipathi-11 occupy lagna, bringing both illnesses and vitality in cycles, income and debt in cycles, friends and betrayal in cycles. During Mahadasha of Zukra this drama can elaborate for 20 years!
Zukra feminine partners = home-partner, work-partner, schoolteacher, schoolmates, neighbors, sister, cousins, aunts
(Zukra no Mother, mother-figure, grandmother; caretakers = Chandra)
Zukra has special importance in male nativities, because Zukra signifies both marriage-contract itself and the harmonizing influence of feminine partners within one's life script.
Expressing the rogesha-6 problematicity function:
Expressing the Vriddhipathi-11 social networking, economic gainfulness function:
Dhanuzya lagna males often divorce and remarry due to stress of Zukra-related addictions, ill health, or conflict in the first marriage.
yet Zukra = Vriddhipathi-11 therefore each marriage brings more achievement, increases economic income, achieves more goals, and enriches the network of marketplace association.
Sweet and sensual Zukra becomes an agent of both conflict (6) and gainfulness (11). Zukra brings both the hostility of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy relationships which produce enemies, and the structured network of association through the marketplace of goods and ideas which creates a great circle of friends.
Considering that Zukra rules both the 6th AND the 6th from the 6th, Dhanushya-lagna is particularly challenged in the area of promise-keeping and alliance-maintenance. Marital fidelity is not a strong point of Dhanushya nativities; nor is Dhanushya particularly concerned to protect the alliances of others.
Due to Zukra's less benevolent lordship, Dhanushya natives typically have quite a bit of trouble (especially during Zukra periods) with the range of Venusian significators:
Truth Be Told 1933- interviewer Larry King, the USA television interview host, still operating a popular show and married to his 8th wife, announced his 8th divorce, in Guru/Zukra period, amidst accusations of marital infidelity, at age 76. (The divorce challenge was later withdrawn.)
Zukra is an especially difficult graha for Dhanushya nativities in which Zukra = rogesha-6 from both radical lagna (material animosity) and Chandra lagna (emotional imbalance-seeking-a-remedy):

"For the Sagittarius Ascendant,
Venus rules the 6th and 11th houses.
Both Rulerships are inauspicious according to the principles of astrology.
Apart from that, Venus is an enemy of Jupiter, and the lord of this Ascendant.
wearing of Diamond in the major period of Venus will bring financial gains to the native .
If Venus is in the 10th, it will give rise to Amala yoga and Diamond in the major period of Venus will enhance the good effects of this yoga."
L-2 / L-3
Pragmatic and conventional Shani is a mani-money collector.
family history(2) is typically modest, materialistic, and orderly in nature, with emphasis on perpetuating the traditional lineage rules for social rank and position. The family culture promotes steady, diligent work and adherence to conventional, material values.
self-made treasuries from bhava-3 depends on the disposition of Shani.

"For the Sagittarius Ascendant, Saturn rules the 2nd, the death inflicting house (maraka house) and the 3rd. Moreover, Saturn is an enemy of Jupiter, the lord of this Ascendant. It will, therefore, generally not be advisable for the native of this Ascendant to wear a Blue Sapphire. But an exception can be made if Saturn is posited in the Ascendant. Good results of such disposition of Saturn are described by Brihat Jatak. ... if Saturn occupies the Ascendant at a person's birth, he will be poor, sickly, love stricken, very unclean, suffering from diseases during his childhood and indistinct in his speech. However, if any of the signs -- Sagittarius, Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn and Libra be the Ascendant and Saturn should occupy it at birth, the person concerned will be equal to a king, the headman of a village or the mayor of the city, a great scholar and will be handsome. Therefore, in a Sagittarius nativity, If Saturn is in the Ascendant, Blue Sapphire will enhance the good effects of the yoga caused by Saturn If it is worn in the major period of Saturn ."

Rahu in bhava-3 = 2nd-from-2ndKumbha can be a highly empowered maraka in the Dhanushya nativity.
Rahu and Ketu are said to give positive results in the upachaya 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 tend to produce comfortable and pleasing results when Mangala and Zukra are well-disposed.
Numerous other schemes for evaluating the elusive aprakasha graha also exist. (More details in the summary provided by Dr. G.S. Kapoor.)
Rahu = co-lord of bhava-3 Kumbha, therefore Rahu-ratna (gomedha) may become a beneficial gem for matters of business administration, commerce, the neighborhood, the work team, siblings, publications, writing, communications media, and brief travels. May be indeed helpful for purposes of producing exotic or adventurous writing for the native willing to take the requisite risks of life and limb.
However Rahu in either rashi of maraka Shani = dangerous for Dhanuzya lagna. Even for the siblings-and-stories target, the Rahu-ratna should be considered only if the lord of bhava-3 and its occupants are highly benevolent.
For Dhanuzya lagna, Ketu co-ruler of Vrizchika opens the boundaries which enclose the twelfth house = dreams, incarceration, meditation, psychic communication with the astral plane and its inhabitants, sanctuary spaces, the private bedroom, extended travels
Ketu's effects for Dhanuzya lagna depend significantly on Ketu's bhava, rashi, and drishti. Ketu amplifies the effect of any graha who are sharing Ketu's bhava; and also Ketu magnifies the effects of the lord of His occupied Rashi.
Ketu the Witness
Ketu-ratna may be a beneficial support for matters of meditation and withdrawal into the hermit's cave of reflective, non-discriminating awareness.
But even if the native 's only remaining ambition is to eradicate all ambition, Cat's Eye chatoyant Chrysoberyl should be used with caution to prevent excessive psychic permeability and destructive (Vrischika) scattering of the mental attention. To merit prescription of the vaidurya, ruler of bhava-12 and occupants of 12 should be quite comfortably disposed.
