Mesha radical lagna

Chandra-Kumbha * bandesha-4 in vridhhi-sthana-11


As the ruler of bandhu-bhava-4, Kumbha Chandra in bhava-11 becomes ruler-of-4 residing in 8th-from-4th. Thus intuitive, sensitive Chandra rules the emotionally challenging 6th-from-Chandra which is Karkata-bhava-11.

This yoga provides foundational support via a broad community of mentoring friendship.

Due to Chandra in 8th-from-4th, one is prone to emotionally motivated change of homeland, often seeking a new citizenship or establishing a changed identity in a distant land. Often the driving urgency of change is perceived as an economic-gains (11) mandate. With Chandra located in 8th-from-4th, The relationship with the parents can be volatile and prone to eruptions of transformative energy but the mother remains a friend.


Mesha rashi specializes in new birth, first arrival, pioneering, innovation, and competitive championship.

  • Ketu-ruled Azwini * Dasra tends to produce physicians and inventors. They have a special understanding of ways in which the container remains the same while the inner energy moves within it.

  • Bharani * Yama being Zukra-ruled tends to produce treasurers, financiers and collectors or preservers of value. They have a reputation for carrying heavy payloads and working to death.

  • Surya-ruled Krittika * Agneya in the first pada belongs within Mesha rashi. Natives are supremely confident and pioneering in nature, tending toward expressions of Surya such as politics, gaming, and creative arts.


The birth-mother herself is often a social activist and vigorous (Mesha) pursuer of social mobility. Yet she may not consistently enact her social-progressive instincts due to the 6/8 shad-ashtakya angle between Professor Chandra vis-a-vis His swabhava Karkata-4 home roots. Conditions in bhava-4 indicate what sort of home it is.

Whatever its outward characteristics, the childhood home (4) and the elder siblings (11) are a source of complex emotional experience. The elder brother (or father's younger brother) may generate emotional conflict which drives the native away seeking transformative experience.

Yet Chandra is the basis of emotional belonging and acceptance by the elder mentors is essential to well-being. One returns to the economic community, and to the mother especially, seeking emotional nourishment at each phase of the ongoing transformation.

  • Way to Wealth 1706-1790 Benjamin Franklin was a younger son with numerous elder siblings. As a youngster, Ben was sent by his parents to work as an indentured servant in his elder brother's printing business in Boston. Having quickly learned basic printing skills, and feeling abused by his exploitive brother, Benjamin broke his indenture and escaped to Philadelphia while still a teenager. Many years later he repaired relations with his economically minded parents, and became an agent of trans-Atlantic networking on behalf of the newly born USA. He lived many early years and most of his final decades in England.

6/8 shad-ashtakya angles:

  • The 8th-from-Chandra-11 becomes bhava-6-Kanya ministries of service and servitude. This yoga suggests that, particularly during Vimshottari bhukti of Budha (enemy of Chandra), one must engage with identity-transforming conditions regarding seva-ministry and the imbalance-seeking-a-remedy that it strives to comfort.

  • The adversarial 6th-from-Chandra-11 becomes bhava-4-Karkata home-school-shelter-parents-roots. This yoga suggests that Vimshottari periods of Chandra can provoke emotional disagreements with the routinized folk culture and expected safety of the homeland. Any graha located in bhava-4 can also prove inimical to one's basic emotional nature.

The parents and caretakers (6th-from-11) and the enemies-adversaries-accusers (8th-from-11) whilst acting as challenging agents will also promote one's identity transformations.


Marriage and partnership

Because Shani ruler of Kumbha-Chandra is the mutual arch-enemy * adhi-shatru of Surya ruler of 7th-from-Chandra, Kumbha-Chandra nativities often experience challenges in the realm of business or marital partnership.

The partner for Chandra-11 = Simha-5 suggesting a brilliantly charismatic, entertaining, politicized mate whose primary identity is grounded through center-stage roles or through the creativity of the children. Chandra-11 native is independently focused upon the community commonwealth (11) rather than upon the unique individual behaviors of Simha (5) suggesting that the spouse requires a good deal of attention but the relationship is friendly.

Vrishabha radical lagna

Chandra-10 -Kumbha * bhratrupathi-3 in karma-sthana-10


As the ruler of bhratru-bhava-3, Kumbha Chandra in bhava-10 becomes ruler-of-3 residing in 8th-from-3rd. Thus intuitive, sensitive Chandra rules the emotionally challenging 6th-from-Chandra which is Karkata-10.

One may become well-known, recognized and respected via message-communication especially writing. This yoga unfolds conditions of emotionally sensitive leadership obligation throughout life. Emotionally attracted to hierarchical venues for communicative experience such as social institutions, pyramid-shaped organizations, director of bureaucracy, regulatory and executive-decision roles.

As always with Chandra-Kumbha, one is a friend to all. In bhava-10, Chandra-Kumbha has broadly populist characteristics expressed through the social role of an iconic figurehead. As the "power behind the throne" Chandra-Kumbha often displays an intuitive ability to counterbalance the flamboyant, charismatic and solipsistic central figures in worlds of celebrity, politics, royalty, gaming, drama, and creative entertainments.

Vrishabha specializes in collection and storage of material values. Modalities include capital finance, banking, cattle, cooperage, databases, warehousing, the herd and the hoard.

  1. If the rising nakshatra is Krittika * Agneya pada 2-3-4, the family wealth is promoted via power of both the father and the individual. Confident acquisition of properties; often a local mercantilist and landowner.

  2. If Rohini * Brahmi marks the eastern horizon, the family values are contained by the mother, within ancestral lands and waters; holds old values but does not seek new. Often a preserving environmentalist.

  3. For Mriga-ziras * Agrahayani pada-1 or pada-2 stored wealth is driven by the marriage-partner, yet many losses due to the partner. Often in careers which involve pushing agreements forward, such as midwife, boat launch, initiate sales, political campaign, factory assembly, transportation industry.

6/8 shad-ashtakya angles:

  • The 8th-from-Chandra-10 becomes bhava-5-Kanya divine intelligence and celebrity. This yoga suggests that, particularly during Vimshottari bhukti of Budha, one must engage with identity-transforming conditions regarding children, creative arts, celebrity center-stage roles, and politics.

  • The adversarial 6th-from-Chandra-10 becomes bhava-3-Karkata communication, siblings and workmates. This yoga suggests that Vimshottari periods of Chandra can provoke emotional disagreements with the routinized folk culture and expected safety of daily communications. Any graha located in bhava-3 can also prove inimical to one's basic emotional nature.


Marriage and partnership

Because Shani ruler of Kumbha-Chandra is the mutual arch-enemy * adhi-shatru of Surya ruler of 7th-from-Chandra, Kumbha-Chandra nativities often experience challenges in the realm of business or marital partnership.

The partner for Chandra-10 = Simha-4 suggesting a brightly charismatic mate whose primary identity is grounded in the home and homeland, schooling, transportation, or agriculture. The mate is typically a traditional householder parent whilst the native may become a symbolic public figure in a populist context.

Mithuna radical lagna

Chandra-Kumbha * L-2 in dharma-sthana-9

dhana yoga



Tolkien_JRR_cover.jpg

JRR Tolkien, author of Lord of the Rings

As the ruler of dhanabhava-2, Kumbha Chandra in bhava-9 becomes ruler-of-2 residing in 8th-from-2nd. Thus intuitive, sensitive Chandra rules the emotionally challenging 6th-from-Chandra -Kumbha which is Karkata-bhava-9.

This yoga provides an entire family of mothers and a challenging family lineage.

The birth-mother herself is a philosopher of life. She is often identified with an particular catechism of belief, but the stated beliefs may not be consistently enacted due to the 6/8 shad-ashtakya angle between Professor Chandra vis-a-vis His swabhava Karkata-2 values. The entire family may be devoted believers of some principled ideology or religious dogma by which they seek to guide their lives, but in fact do not. Conditions in bhava-2 indicate what sort of family this is.

Whatever their outward characteristics, the family and its lineage history (2) are a source of complex emotional experience. The family generates emotional conflict which drives the native away from its bosom to seek transformative experience. Yet Chandra is the basis of emotional belonging and acceptance by the mother-and-family is essential to well-being. One returns to the family and its lineage, and to the mother especially, seeking emotional nourishment at each phase of the ongoing transformation.

Kumbha tends toward empirical science rather than received dogma. Yet if Shani is weak, the birth mother may be a distinctly doctrinal personality identified with a theoretical, philosophical or dogmatic viewpoint. The birth mother may be a b eliever in a systems (Aquila) of interlinked principles based on ancient-roots values. She may be an indoctrinator, catechist, preacher, or professor.

  • Lord of the Rings 1892-1973 J.R.R. Tolkien * Chandra-9 + Guru-Kumbha. According to Tolkien's memoires, his mother's most salient feature was her deep identification with the old-ways historic values that defined her paradigm of belief. Tolkien's mother was profoundly identified with her Roman Catholic doctrina conversa and its priesthood Chandra yuti Guru priesthood.


Mithuna specializes in the interactive, communicative coupling of polarities and opposites.

  • If the rising nakshatra is Kuja-ruled Mriga-ziras * Agrahayani pada-3 or pada-4, one suspects the friends of being enemies and finds enemies to be more trustworthy than friends.

  • If Rahu-ruled Arudra * Raudra marks the rising nakshatra, the sensual body does the explaining via messages of fascinating, passionate movement. Often communicates wild, stormy energy.

  • Guru-ruled Punarvasu * Aditya pada 1-2-3 may produce a wise and charitable teacher who shows that life includes death and good includes evil.


Matters of the university and global humanism (9) are fraught with the linguistic and cultural traditions (2). Transforming the national-ethnic identity is particularly urgent, and one generally contributes to the global effort to re-invent, re-engineer, or renovate the global perception of the deeper meanings of one's cultural roots.

6/8 shad-ashtakya angles:

  • The 8th-from-Chandra-9 becomes bhava-4-Kanya home and homeland. This yoga suggests that, particularly during Vimshottari bhukti of Budha, one must engage with identity-transforming conditions regarding the parents and parenting, patriotism and environmentalism, defense of the land and its peoples, and habitual rhythmic roots cultures.

  • The adversarial 6th-from-Chandra-9 becomes bhava-2-Karkata historical values and family lineage This yoga suggests that Vimshottari periods of Chandra can provoke emotional disagreements with the routinized folk culture and expected safety of conserved family wealth. Any graha located in bhava-2 can also prove inimical to one's basic emotional nature.


Marriage and partnership

Because Shani ruler of Kumbha-Chandra is the mutual arch-enemy * adhi-shatru of Surya ruler of 7th-from-Chandra, Kumbha-Chandra nativities often experience challenges in the realm of business or marital partnership.

The partner for Chandra-9 -Kumbha = Simha-3 suggesting a brightly charismatic mate whose primary identity is commercial business, media-messaging, or handcraft. The mate is typically a craftsperson deftly handling communications activities, administration, project-management, words, images, or objects.

Karkata radical lagna

Chandra-Kumbha * lagnesha-1 in randhra-sthana-8


As lagnesha, Kumbha Chandra in bhava-8 becomes ruler-of-1 residing in 8th-from-1st. Thus intuitive, sensitive Chandra rules the emotionally challenging 6th-from-Chandra which is Karkata-bhava-8.

This yoga provides a lifetime of relentless, emotionally motivated conflicts and identity-transformations. The results may benefit the masses and the classes (Kumbha). Yet one may be in the throes of social or personal upheaval for the duration of the lifetime.

Karkata specializes in roots, ruts, rhythms and routines.

  1. If the rising nakshatra is Punarvasu * Aditya pada-4, a natural philosopher may show the conflicts inherent in humanity's deepest roots.

  2. If Pushya * Sidhya marks the rising nakshatra, the ancient lawful governance hierarchies are stabilized and sustained.

  3. Azlesa * Naga nakshatra in the radical lagna may produce a significant writer, messenger, or craftsman who binds the psycho-mental turmoil to a fixed and grounded place.

The birth-mother herself is a somewhat secretive person whose outward facade may not be consistent with her inward reality due to the 6/8 shad-ashtaka angle between Professor Chandra vis-a-vis His swabhava Karkata-1 personality.

The Karkata-lagna native is naturally and profoundly identified with the mother and with one's customary culture of the home and upbringing, including religion, costume, language, and other features of the ethnic environment. However one is also scheduled to transform - sometimes vehemently - from this basis into an agent of revolutionary change. It is a conundrum driven by the need to seek greater stability and security (Karkata-1) via the emotional engagement with transformative change (8).

  • USA Civil Rights 1929-1968 Rev. Martin Luther King provides a splendid model of Kumbha-Chandra-8. As a university educated theologian and son of a respected African-American Christian preacher, Dr. King sought to apply fundamental (Karkata) Christian principles in pursuit of transformation of the life circumstances of his ethnic people. His methods were classic Kumbha: large-group social organizing and economic boycott. His life was classic Chandra-8: magnificent, revolutionary, and brief.

Whatever one's outward characteristics, the inner personality is emotionally complex in the extreme. One must challenge the existing system even as one seeks a secure place within it. One returns to ethnic identity, and to the region of birth, seeking emotional nourishment at each phase of the ongoing transformation. One may feel like a magnet for conflict and upheaval, yet the message (3) is one of return to the ancient, stable roots of the core culture.

6/8 shad-ashtakya angles:

  • The 8th-from-Chandra-8 becomes bhava-3-Kanya writings, communications, teamwork. This yoga suggests that, particularly during Vimshottari bhukti of Budha, one must engage with identity-transforming conditions regarding evangelistic communications, business administration, and cohort teamwork with colleagues and siblings.

  • The adversarial 6th-from-Chandra-8 becomes bhava-1-Karkata physical body and its brain. This yoga suggests that Vimshottari periods of Chandra can provoke emotional disagreements with the routinized folk culture and expected safety of the individual identity. Any graha located in bhava-1 can also prove inimical to one's basic emotional nature.

The personal vitality (6th-from-8) and the collaborative ensemble team, especially the writers-announcers-publishers and entourage members (8th-from-8) whilst acting as challenging agents will also promote one's identity transformations.


Marriage and partnership

Because Shani ruler of Kumbha-Chandra is the mutual arch-enemy * adhi-shatru of Surya ruler of 7th-from-Chandra, Kumbha-Chandra nativities often experience challenges in the realm of business or marital partnership.

Simha radical lagna

Chandra-Kumbha * ruler-of-12 in yuvati-bhava-7


Faust 1749-1832 polymath Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Celebrity 1960-1999 publisher JFK-Jr

Thriller 1958-2009 Michael J. Jackson


michael_jackson_2000.jpg

As the ruler of vyaya-bhava-12, Kumbha Chandra in bhava-7 becomes ruler-of-12 residing in 8th-from-12th. Thus intuitive, sensitive Chandra rules the emotionally challenging 6th-from-Chandra which is Karkata-7.

Vyayapathi-12 in 7 brings the environment of imagination, meditative contemplation, reflective thought, quietude, and psycho-physical distance into the scenes of interactive marriage and trusting partnership.

The partner may hail from an invisible sector or a distinctively "distant" social class. When Chandra occupies bhava-7 the partner is usually dedicated to the union and may vicariously live through the native's personality (although the intensity of the vicariousness depends on other factors). Typically the partner dislikes public attention; yet the Simha native enjoys basking in the bright light of celebrity.

  • Celebrity 1960-1999 publisher JFK-Jr * son of POTUS-35 born into the celebrity-entitlement class, he married a shop clerk

One seeks mothering from the partner even while needing unmolested sanctuary for private endeavors.


Simha specializes in radiance, splendor, royalty, self-entitlement, divine intelligence, centrality, celebrity, creativity, politics and drama.

  • If the rising nakshatra is Ketu-ruled Magha * Pitriya, a very unique personality may radiate a fiery, other-worldly, magical Witness intelligence.

  • If Zukra-ruled Purva-phalguni * Yoni marks the rising nakshatra, artistic beauty expresses via politics, drama, celebrity, royalty, fashion, costume and song.

  • Surya-ruled Uttara-phalguni * Aryamna nakshatra in the radical lagna may produce a politician, literary dramatist, dramatist, game-player, or royal figure.


The birth-mother herself is often an emotionally motivated bargainer, match-maker, and advocate. However her own relationships may not be completely balanced due to the 6/8 shad-ashtaka angle between Professor Chandra vis-a-vis His swabhava Karkata-12 invisibility. Mother's partners may be engaged in clandestine affairs.

  • The mother of Thriller 1958-2009 Michael J. Jackson famously enduring many decades of marriage to a philandering husband.

Chandra becomes ruler of bhava-12 which contains agents and environments that are by their nature adversarial to marriage. Therefore marriage may become fractious unless the native is granted the marital space to retreat into a research laboratory or a writing studio or other enclosure for imaginative pursuits.

Whatever their outward characteristics, the partner of Kumbha-Chandra-7 is a source of complex emotional experience. The partner generates both a promise of security and an emotional pattern of imbalance which drives the native away from the union to seek transformative experience. Yet Chandra is the basis of emotional belonging. Acceptance by the partner is essential to well-being. One returns to the union seeking emotional nourishment at each phase of the ongoing transformation.

6/8 shad-ashtakya angles:

  • The 8th-from-Chandra-7 becomes bhava-2-Kanya treasure-containers and family lineage. This yoga suggests that, particularly during Vimshottari bhukti of Budha, one must engage with identity-transforming conditions regarding historical values and collections.

  • The adversarial 6th-from-Chandra-7 becomes bhava-12-Karkata private sanctuary, sleep and dreams. This yoga suggests that Vimshottari periods of Chandra can provoke emotional disagreements with the routinized folk culture and expected safety of the bedroom or meditation enclosure. Any graha located in bhava-12 can also prove inimical to one's basic emotional nature.

Those few admitted to one's private sanctuary (6th-from-7) and the family of origin along with lineage-knowledge holders (8th-from-7) whilst acting as challenging agents will also promote one's identity transformations.


Marriage and partnership

Because Shani ruler of Kumbha-Chandra is the mutual arch-enemy * adhi-shatru of Surya ruler of 7th-from-Chandra, Kumbha-Chandra nativities often experience challenges in the realm of business or marital partnership.

Kanya radical lagna

Chandra-Kumbha = Vriddhipathi-11 in roga-bhava-6


GeorgySoros_elder.jpg

Financier Open Society 1930- capitalist George Soros

As the ruler of vridhhi-bhava-11, Kumbha Chandra in bhava-6 becomes ruler-of-11 residing in 8th-from-11th. Thus intuitive, sensitive Chandra rules the emotionally challenging 6th-from-Chandra which is Karkata-bhava-6.

This yoga significantly challenges the bodily vitality yet it provides deep compassion for those in a victim condition and aids the completion of karmic rebalancing cycles. It often indicates a final tour through the earthly vale. By the end of the incarnation, one is no longer beholden to the human fleshbody nervous system and its urgent dictates.

This yoga unfolds a series of emotional exploitations which can manifest via the role of victim of injustice in the early life. Matures into a saintly minister of service in the later life due to the seva-supporting signal from Kanya lagna.


Kanya specializes in service, imbalance-seeking-a-remedy, disagreement, medical treatment, remedial strategies, argumentation, and the virginal state.

  1. Surya-ruled Uttaraphalguni * Aryamna suggests exploitive conditions which can evoke an argumentative political or theatrical response. Much hand-waving and declaiming. Kanya Chandra ruler of 11th-from-1 may contribute a familiar-face public recognition, an increased accusatory logic and a capacity to work with large groups.

  2. When Chandra-ruled Hasta * Savitra marks the rising nakshatra, one responds to imbalance-seeking-a-remedy with comforting acceptance, manual caretaking, and soothing routines of service. Hasta has a general preference for a quieter lifestyle of drawing, writing, feeling the rhythms of life, and caring for family. Kanya Chandra ruler of 11th-from-1 increases the earning initiative.

  3. Mangala-ruled Chitra * Tvastri nakshatra in the radical lagna approaches imbalance-seeking-a-remedy with a designer's urge to straighten and correct it. May produce a hand-crafty surgeon, writer, builder, architect, or master planner. Kanya Chandra ruler of 11th-from-1 increases the impetus (Mangala) to design new fabrications for large-scale projects such as economies and communities.

The birth-mother herself is often identified with caretaking service and the birth mother is often herself ill during the native's childhood. Mother's compassion may not be consistently enacted due to the 6/8 shad-ashtakya angle between Professor Chandra vis-a-vis His swabhava Karkata-11 economic gain. The parents may appear hypocritical or unsympathetic in their position of needing to take profit (11) from the poor and socially marginalized (6). Conditions in bhava-11 indicate what sort of profitability this is.

  • POTUS-pair-37 Pat Ryan Nixon cared for her cancer-stricken mother until mom died when young Thelma (Pat) was age-12. Typical of a woman born with Chandra-6 Pat then acquired service duties including running the household for her father and two brothers. When she was 17, her dad died, leaving her with substantial caretaking duties and (again typical of Chandra-6) little emotional or financial support

Whatever their outward characteristics, the parental-figure caretakers in one's life are a source of complex emotional experience. Those in parental or sheltering roles generate emotional conflict which drives the native away from home in order to seek transformative experience. Yet Chandra is the basis of emotional belonging; and acceptance by the caretakers is essential to well-being. One returns to the caretakers, no matter their negligence, seeking emotional nourishment at each phase of the ongoing transformation.


6/8 shad-ashtakya angles:

  • The 8th-from-Chandra-6 becomes bhava-1-Kanya physical body vitality. This yoga suggests that, particularly during Vimshottari bhukti of Budha, one must engage with identity-transforming conditions regarding the individual fleshbody and the limitations of its brain.

  • The adversarial 6th-from-Chandra-6 becomes bhava-11-Karkata economic gains and networks of friendship. This yoga suggests that Vimshottari periods of Chandra can provoke emotional disagreements with the routinized folk culture and expected safety of the mode of financial income. Any graha located in bhava-11 can also prove inimical to one's basic emotional nature.


Chandra-6 may be mistreated precisely by those who are socially designated and emotionally expected to be the protective caretakers. It is a successful karma completing lifetime which rarely strays from the track of humble service to those more vulnerable than oneself. Mother is often a servant, physician, nurse or has a caretaker-role and her health is also fragile.

Often an agent of social-progressive (11) transformation (8) via breaking old contracts and dissolving outdated expectations.

Stress zone = skin, nerves (especially the nerve sheaths), nervous system both its physical component and its psychic component which extends 6-8inches beyond the physical skin. Prone toward accumulation of waste cells = tumor melanoma (tumors of the skin) (Shani).

The community of like-minded friends and economic networks (6th-from-6) and the physical body self (8th-from-6) whilst acting as challenging agents will also promote one's identity transformations.


Marriage and partnership

Because Shani ruler of Kumbha-Chandra is the mutual arch-enemy * adhi-shatru of Surya ruler of 7th-from-Chandra, Kumbha-Chandra nativities often experience challenges in the realm of business or marital partnership.

The partner for Chandra-6-Kumbha = Simha-12, suggesting a political, celebrity-royal, or literary-dramatic celebrity mate who functions invisibly in distant enclosures. Typically, the mate hails from a culturally distant environment, which may be geographically close but socially impenetrable to the native due to cultural boundaries.

  • POTUS-pair-37 Pat Ryan Nixon married POTUS-37 Watergate Richard Nixon . Although Nixon was a world-recognized public figure, he was also a victim of mental illness which caused him to retreat (12) into a paranoid private world. Also typical of the female Kumbha-Chandra, her husband was a career politician (Simha).

Thula radical lagna

Chandra-Kumbha * karmesha-10 in vidya-sthana-5


As the ruler of karmasthana-10, Kumbha Chandra in bhava-5 becomes ruler-of-10 residing in 8th-from-10th. Thus intuitive, sensitive Chandra rules the emotionally challenging 6th-from-Chandra-Kumbha which is Karkata-bhava-5.

This yoga may involve drama of transformation and upheaval (8) of large groups of people (Kumbha), populist politics and leadership governance duties subject to constant upheaval and reformation. It is a difficult placement but also a distinguished placement carrying heavy executive responsibilities in psycho-emotionally charged environments.


Thula radical lagna specializes in partnership and pairings, yoga, equity, balancing, deal-making, match-making, and mutual agreement.

  • If Chitra * Tvastri nakshatra marks the eastern horizon, Mangala's influence produces forceful, incisive contract-making. One has an architectural style, aimed toward building of edifices.

  • If Swati * Vayu rises, Rahu's influence produces a passionate expression of feeling in public roles, with a willingness to take risks for potential gain. Zeal for making agreements with those outside one's own group.

  • If Vishakya * Radha nakshatra forms the radical lagna, Guru's influence supports the development of multiple alliances. Often concerned with doctrine and matters of global humanism. May represent numerous and diverse constituencies.


The birth-mother herself is often identified with politics, entertainment, or the creative arts. Yet due to the 6/8 shad-ashtakya angle between Professor Chandra vis-a-vis His swabhava Karkata-10 leadership, her influence may be somewhat corrupted (6) or hidden (8).

  • Syria-Pres 1965- ophthalmologist Bashar al-Assad had a mother who would have influenced both his father the previous ruler and himself her son. Despite matriarchal authority, she took no publically visible role.

Whatever their outward characteristics, the political-creative arts and the children (5) are sources of complex emotional experience. Political needs generates emotional conflict which drives the native away from the ethnicity, seeking transformative experience. Yet Chandra is the basis of emotional belonging and acceptance by the root-folk is essential to well-being. One returns to the political or creative roots, and to the mother especially, seeking emotional nourishment at each phase of the ongoing transformation.

6/8 shad-ashtakya angles:

  • The 8th-from-Chandra-5 becomes bhava-12-Kanyadistant lands. This yoga suggests that, particularly during Vimshottari bhukti of Budha, one must engage with identity-transforming conditions regarding other worlds of Earth and related astral environments.

  • The adversarial 6th-from-Chandra-5 becomes bhava-10-Karkata public roles and responsibility for governance. This yoga suggests that Vimshottari periods of Chandra can provoke emotional disagreements with the routinized folk culture and expected safety of the public reputation. Any graha located in bhava-10 can also prove inimical to one's basic emotional nature.


Marriage and partnership

Because Shani ruler of Kumbha-Chandra is the mutual arch-enemy * adhi-shatru of Surya ruler of 7th-from-Chandra, Kumbha-Chandra nativities often experience challenges in the realm of business or marital partnership.

The partner for Chandra-5-Kumbha = Simha-11, suggesting a political, celebrity-royal, or literary-dramatic celebrity mate who functions in community activist, economically engaged roles (often fundraising).

Vrizchika radical lagna

Chandra-Kumbha * dharmesha-9 in bandhu-bhava-4


As the ruler of dharmasthana-9, Kumbha Chandra in bhava-4 * digbala becomes ruler-of-9 residing in 8th-from-9th. Thus intuitive, sensitive Chandra rules the emotionally challenging 6th-from-Chandra -Kumbha which is Karkata-bhava-4.

This yoga induces conditions of emotional engagement with the sahangha of true-believers subject to conditions of nearly constant conditions of transformative change. One is positioned to respond emotionally to ideologies, theories, and doctrines of belief throughout life. Emotionally attracted to home-based, school-based, and patriotic venues for global experience: school-teaching, home-building, agriculture, transportation, and culture-foundational work of all kinds.


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.

  • ShouldShani-ruled Anu-radha * Maitra form the rising nakshatra, suddenly emerging, eruptive change can be contained within lawful structures. Often a behind-the-scenes shock-recovery agent including physicians and those who impose social order after upheavals and disasters.

  • 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.


As always with Chandra-Kumbha, one is a friend to all. In bhava-4, Chandra-Kumbha has a broadly populist anchoring and stabilizing persona. As the "power behind the throne" Chandra-Kumbha often displays an intuitive ability to counterbalance the flamboyant, charismatic and solipsistic central figures in worlds of celebrity, politics, royalty, gaming, drama, and creative entertainments.

6/8 shad-ashtakya angles:

  • The 8th-from-Chandra-4 becomes bhava-11-Kanyaeconomic systems and fundraising. This yoga suggests that, particularly during Vimshottari bhukti of Budha, one must engage with identity-transforming conditions regarding friendship linkages and community distribution networks.

  • The adversarial 6th-from-Chandra-4 becomes bbhava-9-Karkata ideological and philosophical beliefs. This yoga suggests that Vimshottari periods of Chandra can provoke emotional disagreements with the routinized folk culture and expected safety of the principled theoretical doctrine. Any graha located in bhava-11 can also prove inimical to one's basic emotional nature.


Marriage and partnership

Because Shani ruler of Kumbha-Chandra is the mutual arch-enemy * adhi-shatru of Surya ruler of 7th-from-Chandra, Kumbha-Chandra nativities often experience challenges in the realm of business or marital partnership.

The partner for Chandra-4 Kumbha= Simha-10, suggesting hierarchical leadership, radiating a Simha energy of political, royal, and literary-dramatic celebrity in socially respected, legislative, executive, or regulatory roles. Alternatively, the partner may provide a brightly entertaining or fashionably deceptive facade to deflect public attention away from the native's true undertakings.

  • POTUS-pair-38 addictions clinic Betty Bloomer Ford married 12-term Congressman POTUS-38 Time to Heal Gerald R. Ford. He won the first election within 2 weeks of their marriage, and they functioned as a high-visibility political partnership during their entire adult lives.

Chandra-Kumbha * randhresha-8 in vikrama-bhava-3


As the ruler of randhrasthana-8, Kumbha Chandra in bhava-3 becomes ruler-of-8 residing in 8th-from-8th . Thus intuitive, sensitive Chandra rules the emotionally challenging 6th-from-Chandra -Kumbha which is Karkata-bhava-3.

This powerfully transformative (8) yoga induces conditions of intense identity change and cyclical regeneration throughout life. The emotional nature is intensely secretive. Emotionally attracted to communicative venues for identity-changing experience: performance tours, presentations, event-planning, meetings, public relations, media-messaging, radio-television , internet, cinema, advertising, marketing, photography, writing, commercial business and all types of business management.

Dhanuzya specializes in patronage, preaching, humanistic worldview, doctrine and belief.

  • If Mula * Nirriti rises, one may express a Ketu-influenced fearless optimism lacking regard for consequences.

  • If Purva-Azadha * Apah is the nakshatra upon the eastern horizon at the time of birth, one may express the Zukra-influenced belief that sensual pleasure, wealth, music, and beauty are the keys to life.

  • If Uttara-Azadha * Vaizva marks the radical lagna, Surya's influence may produce a confidence in theoretical dharma that suggests a global-scale teacher or inspiring politician.


As always with Chandra-Kumbha, one is a natural networker and a friend to all. In bhava-3, Chandra-Kumbha delivers a broadly populist message.. As the "power behind the throne" of a Simha-ish mate, Chandra-Kumbha often displays an intuitive ability to counterbalance the flamboyant, charismatic and solipsistic central figures in worlds of celebrity, politics, royalty, gaming, drama, and creative entertainments.

6/8 shad-ashtakya angles:

  • The 8th-from-Chandra-3 becomes bhava-10-Kanya public reputation and governance duties. This yoga suggests that, particularly during Vimshottari bhukti of Budha, one must engage with identity-transforming conditions regarding social hierarchies and high-visibility roles.

  • The adversarial 6th-from-Chandra-3 becomes bhava-8-Karkata secret assets and confidential information. This yoga suggests that Vimshottari periods of Chandra can provoke emotional disagreements with the routinized folk culture and expected safety of the hidden treasures. Any graha located in bhava-8 can also prove inimical to one's basic emotional nature.


Marriage and partnership

Because Shani ruler of Kumbha-Chandra is the mutual arch-enemy * adhi-shatru of Surya ruler of 7th-from-Chandra, Kumbha-Chandra nativities often experience challenges in the realm of business or marital partnership.

The partner for Chandra-3 Kumbha= Simha-9 5th-from-5th, suggesting a life-mate-1 who radiates the charismatic energy of political, royal, and literary-dramatic celebrity. The partner may be an ideological affiliated with universities and global humanistic roles.

Makara radical lagna

Chandra-Kumbha * yuvatipathi-7 in dhana-sthana-2


As the ruler of yuvati-sthana-7, Kumbha Chandra in bhava-2 becomes ruler-of-7 residing in 8th-from-7th. Thus intuitive, sensitive Chandra rules the emotionally challenging 6th-from-Chandra -Kumbha which is Karkata-bhava-2.

First marriage may be sincere but the forces of emotional identity transformation ( (8) are extremely strong and the first marriage may be short-lived. All marriages are caught in the whirlwind of intensely intuitive self-reinvention and redefinition, such that maintaining any marriage requires great self-understanding and willingness to give each other the gift of psycho-physical space.


Makara rashi specializes in hierarchical pyramid-shaped social organizations, bureaucracy, social ranks and classes, structure and bones, orderly social leadership, regulation and legislation, policy and protocol, judgments and the rule of law.

  • Surya-ruled Uttara-azadha pada 2-3-4 in radical lagna tends toward mystical and occult sensibility combined with externally pious and lawful behavior. Often involved with religious hierarchies.

  • When Chandra-ruled Shravana contacts the eastern horizon at the time of birth, one may develop expertise in the law of contracts and trusts. Often a government agent charged with sensitive negotiations.

  • Mangala-ruled Dhaniztha pada 1-2 favors a dynamic ascent up the hierarchical ladder of corporate and government rank. Often a champion of competition and dominance.


The birth-mother herself is often identified with a valuable family lineage of speech, song, or knowledge (2). Yet her values may not be consistently enacted due to the 6/8 shad-ashtakya angle between Professor Chandra vis-a-vis His swabhava Karkata-7 contractual unions. The mother's marriage being unbalanced, so is the native's. Conditions in bhava-7 indicate what sort of marriage or contractual partnership this is.

Whatever their outward characteristics, the family of origin (2) and the spouse (7) are a sources of complex emotional experience. The partner generates emotional conflict which drives the native away, seeking transformative experience. Yet Chandra is the basis of emotional belonging; and acceptance by the mate is essential to well-being. One returns cyclically to the mother and to the family of origin, seeking emotional nourishment at each phase of the ongoing transformation.

6/8 shad-ashtakya a angles:

  • The 8th-from-Chandra-2 becomes bhava-9-Kanyafather and doctrine. This yoga suggests that, particularly during Vimshottari bhukti of Budha, one must engage with identity-transforming conditions regarding patriarchal rule and standard received teachings (dogma).

  • The adversarial 6th-from-Chandra-2 becomes bbhava-7-Karkata contracts and terms of agreement. This yoga suggests that Vimshottari periods of Chandra can provoke emotional disagreements with the routinized folk culture and expected safety of the legal contracts and negotiated trusts. Any graha located in bhava-2 can also prove inimical to one's basic emotional nature.


Marriage and partnership

Because Shani ruler of Kumbha-Chandra is the mutual arch-enemy * adhi-shatru of Surya ruler of 7th-from-Chandra, Kumbha-Chandra nativities often experience challenges in the realm of business or marital partnership.

The partner for Chandra-2 Kumbha = Simha-8, suggesting a mate who radiates energy of political, royal, and literary-dramatic intelligence. Yet this bright light is almost completely hidden from public view. The partner may be involved in undisclosed or confidential dealings, or the partner may be an enigma to the public. This yoga provides an indication of second marriage.

Kumbha radical lagna

Chandra-Kumbha * rogesha-6 in kalp-sthana-1


As the ruler of rogabhava-6, Kumbha Chandra in bhava-1 becomes ruler-of-6 residing in 8th-from-6th . Thus intuitive, sensitive Chandra rules the emotionally challenging 6th-from-Chandra -Kumbha which is Karkata-bhava-1.

This yoga provides a lifetime of service-oriented engagement with ailment, addiction, conflict, exploitation, accusation, crime, betrayal, and various expressions of imbalanced practice. There is an emotional compulsion to secrecy especially regarding matters of health and criminal misdoings.

Due to the 6/8 shad-ashtaka angle between Professor Chandra vis-a-vis His swabhava Karkata-6 imbalances and accusations, the birth-mother herself is often ill and/or exploited by her marriage conditions. The mother's role-play in these conditions is however a pivotal learning model for the native. One resembles the mother both physically and psychically.

The outward characteristics are much influenced by parental, caring, nourishing Chandra. One is perceived as having protective agency toward those in one's care who are vulnerable or weak.

The Kumbha-Chandra native is often identified with the miseries of the impoverished, the betrayed, and the exploited. Internal conflicts within the personality drive one to seek transformative experience which re-invents the Self. Yet Chandra is the basis of emotional belonging and core self-acceptance is essential to well-being. Often battered by conflict during sudden re-orientation and unexpectedly changing circumstances, one may resort to self-medication or develop deep-seated disease.


Kumbha rashi specializes in community, systems, economies, ecologies, scientific and electro-magnetic networks, social-participation gatherings, friendship, and voluntary association. Kumbha is an enclosed airspace, such as a marketplace, comb or a drum

  • When Mangala-ruled Dhaniztha pada 3-4 marks the eastern horizon at the time of birth, one may be a drummer pounding out the beats which bring the large group into coordination or a competitive orchestrator networking various sections together under one leader.
  • When Rahu-ruled Shata-visakya forms the radical lagna, an exotic figure arises to show the connections between past, present, and future.
  • Guru-ruled Purva-bhadrapada pada 1-2-3 in the radical lagna indicates one who scientifically explains the connections between factors which determine large groups behavior.

6/8 shad-ashtakya an angles:

  • The 8th-from-Chandra-1 becomes bhava-8-Kanya secret information and hidden assets. This yoga suggests that, particularly during Vimshottari bhukti of Budha, one must engage with identity-transforming conditions regarding hidden treasures and foreknowledge of catastrophic events.

  • The adversarial 6th-from-Chandra-1 becomes bhava-6-Karkata enemies, debts, and disease. This yoga suggests that Vimshottari periods of Chandra can provoke emotional disagreements with the routinized folk culture and expected safety of the addictive, exploitive, or criminal undertakings. Any graha located in bhava-1 can also prove inimical to one's basic emotional nature.


Marriage and partnership

Because Shani ruler of Kumbha-Chandra is the mutual arch-enemy * adhi-shatru of Surya ruler of 7th-from-Chandra, Kumbha-Chandra nativities often experience challenges in the realm of business or marital partnership.

The partner for Chandra-1 Kumbha = Simha-7, suggesting a mate who radiates energy of political, royal, and literary-dramatic intelligence. This bright light is deeply involved in contractual agreements, legal settlements, deal-making and arrangements. The partner is frequently an attorney or professional negotiator.

The native is usually a loyal reflective and absorptive partner, operating like a subtly glowing Moon toward this partner's brightly shining Sun. However the ruler-of-6 residing in 8th-from-6th of fers significant challenges. One typically has health issues related to bhava-6, and some degree of nondisclosure (8) between the partners is to be expected.

Meena radical lagna

Chandra-Kumbha * vidyapathi-5 in vyaya-bhava-12
  • "Aladdin" comedian, dramatist Robin Williams + Rahu

  • Way to Wealth 1706-1790 Benjamin Franklin

As the ruler of putrabhava-5, Kumbha Chandra in bhava-12 becomes ruler-of-5 residing in 8th-from-5th. Thus intuitive, sensitive Chandra rules Karkata-bhava-12 which is the emotionally challenging 6th-from-Chandra

Under conditions of periodic upheavals of the personal intelligence in context of politics, entertainment, creativity, charisma, and children, this yoga grounds the emotional basis of the incarnation through the realm of spirit. One seeks retreat.


Meena specializes in charity, clairsentience, and spiritual guidance.

  • The fourth pada of Guru-ruled Purvabhadrapada * Prostha-pada * Pegasus may be a scientist or philosopher who draws upon a broadly conceptual, spiritual or theoretical imagery.

  • Should Shani-ruled Uttarabhadrapada * Ahira-budhnaya * Andromeda pada 1-2-3-4 mark the eastern horizon at the time of birth, remarkable material wealth and proportionate charitable largesse may be expected.

  • Budha-ruled Revati * Pusan * Antyabha (the Whale-sound) pada 1-2-3-4 produces generous messengers of the subconscious who guide like "ferrymen" using scripted speech, humming melodies and chants. Often a singer conveying a message.


The birth-mother herself is often withdrawn even to the extent of being invisible, perhaps as deceased or living distantly or often engaged in private prayer. Due to the 6/8 shad-ashtakya angle between Professor Chandra vis-a-vis His swabhava Karkata-5 creativity, the emotional basis of life becomes the children whether these are children of the body or children of the mind such as literary works. One may seek a creative outlet via the children, or enjoy engaging the students (5) in one's research (12).

The research environment, the sanctuary space, the cloister, or the imagination (12) contains the denizens of 5 who are typically students, children, creative artists, entertainers, and politicians. Yet these are not quiet denizens so there is always a conflict between a need for withdrawn quietude and the comfort-seeking instinct to bring the performers into the meditation space. Conditions in bhava-5 indicate what sort of creative performers these are.

Whatever their outward characteristics, the children are a source of complex and often conflicted emotional experience. The children or the lack of them generates emotional conflict which drives the native to seek transformative experience via private prayer and reflection. Creative imagination (12) is emotionally supercharged.

Yet Chandra is the basis of emotional belonging and acceptance by the young, vibrant, radiant beings is essential to well-being. One returns to the inner sanctum of bedroom privacy, and to the mother especially, seeking emotional nourishment at each phase of the ongoing transformation.

6/8 shad-ashtakya angles:

  • The 8th-from-Chandra-12 becomes bhava-7-Kanya contracts and partnerships. This yoga suggests that, particularly during Vimshottari bhukti of Budha, one must engage with identity-transforming conditions regarding contractual terms of agreement.

  • The adversarial 6th-from-Chandra-12 becomes bhava-5-Karkata children, creativity, gambling, celebrity, politics This yoga suggests that Vimshottari periods of Chandra can provoke emotional disagreements with the routinized folk culture and expected safety of the creative intelligence or speculative games. Any graha located in bhava-12 can also prove inimical to one's basic emotional nature.


Marriage and partnership

Because Shani ruler of Kumbha-Chandra is the mutual arch-enemy * adhi-shatru of Surya ruler of 7th-from-Chandra, Kumbha-Chandra nativities often experience challenges in the realm of business or marital partnership.

The partner for Chandra-12-Kumbha = Simha-6, suggesting a mate who radiates energy of political, royal, and literary-dramatic intelligence. The mate is identified with the victim narrative and the marital contract may seem unsatisfiable (6). The partner may feel exploited and may suffer from illness rooted in disappointment, often cardiac in nature. Other pitta-related disorders are also possible. The partner's unhappiness mixed with a need for center-stage attention, and the native's need for privacy mixed with supercharged imagination may combine in challenging ways. One may be a gifted clairsentient who seeks protective sanctuary away from the cranky spouse, motivating frequent travel to distant worlds either physical or imaginative.

  • Way to Wealth 1706-1790 Benjamin Franklin formed a common-law marriage with Deborah Read, who bore at least two of his three children. Although Franklin was a very prominent public figure, Ms. Read took no part in public life. Franklin makes only the most minimal reference to her in his writings; by contrast he wrote effusively about both his older son and his younger daughter. Franklin criss-crossed the Atlantic frequently for business and politics, but Ms. Read claiming sea-sickness (6) never travelled with him. Eventually he settled in England with his land-lady, maintaining regular social contact with British commercial links and practicing diplomacy on behalf of the new American Republic. Deborah's history was especially difficult for its day. She had been first married to a cheat who stole her dowry then disappeared. Because the cheat could never be located, she could never receive a divorce based on abandonment. While socially cast as somewhere between a wife and a servant, she dutifully assisted Franklin in their family printshop and managed the business effectively during his constant absences. He essentially bequeathed the business to her. She was regularly ill (reinforced by Franklin's weakened Surya). Franklin was living in Britain when she died, and he did not attend her funeral.
