Ravi promotes pride in the ideal qualities of one's mate and nobility of relationships both personal and professional.
Ego-identified with activities of bargaining and alliance-construction; diplomacy and balancing skills. Confidence in one's ability to ensure equity.
Professor Surya = karaka for the rational and creative self, soul, and one's ability to channel divine intelligence. Ravi controls the marriage house, therefore for Kumbha lagna the condition of Ravi in the nativity becomes a strong indicator of the character of the spouse.
pitrikaraka Surya yuvatipathi-7
The father tends to be an advocate, attorney, negotiator, counselor and advisor, match-maker, supervisor of vows and covenants, facilitator of balance and partnership. However, matters of adjusting and accommodating the interests of another person or another party belong in the province of Professor Surya's profound enemy Zukra. In His natural state, Surya wants to be a self-referential and self-directed solo actor unconcerned with matters of equality of partnership with others.
Further, Surya being the arch-enemy of lagnesha Shani, the power of Professor Surya to effect balance in the father's own undertakings may be subtly undermined by the native's own insistence on the priority of scientific structures and group networking community interests, over and above the concern for balanced interpersonal relationships.
Both Makara-lagna nativities and Kumbha-lagna nativities may find a degree of contempt for a weakened father, yet acquiesce to grant him the basic dignity of a respected place in the world (yuvatipathi-7 10th from 10th). Much depends upon the specific placement of Surya.
The dominant indicator of career rules 10th navamsha, and karmapathi; however Surya = a lesser karaka for publicly recognized leadership roles.
karmesha-10 Zukra has career-determining power as well, and the relationship of the radix karmapathi Zukra with the ruler of the 10th navamsha must be inspected to discover the career profile.
As karmesha-10 and Vidyapthi-5, Zukra is a highly favorable yogakaraka for the Kumbha lagna and generally a positive support for Zukra-related careers such as finance, beauty, music, design, ornamentation, diplomacy, or engagement in sparkly white materials.
Emotionally, for Masculine Nativities in particular but also Feminine Nativities to a lesser degree, one may experience repeating patterns of conflict due to failed expectations of marital nourishment. Due partly to emotional volatility of adversarial Chandra = rogesha-6 , traumatic memories of the mother may resurface in marriage, where the expectation that one will be taken care of by the partner typically ends in disappointment.
Husband-and-wife teams can be successful, but the mate should be the dominant partner, because yuvatipathi-7 Surya encourages Kumbha to marry a strong-willed and self-determined spouse (s).
The partner's career and the partner's leadership within the core union may significantly frame one's career choices.
Kumbha-1 often expects the spouse (whether male of female) to possess a more dominant or more professionalized career than oneself.
Because bhava-7 = a maraka bhava, it is generally not recommended to use remedial ruby except in special circumstances.
As Dr. Kapoor notes, one of those special circumstances could be a very focused professional drive toward promotion or recognition in the institutional hierarchy.
The larger the social network (Kumbha) of association, the better is the chance of Surya-ratna having a positive effect on the development of that infrastructure of consulting and advising relationships which underlies every successful public career.

quotation from Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology . Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 90
"For the Aquarius (Kumbha) Ascendant,
It will be, therefore, advisable for the native s of this Ascendant not to wear Ruby.
According to 'Bhawath Bhavam ' theory of Hindu Astrology, the seventh house is 10th to 10th house and wearing of Ruby in addition to enhancing the good effects of the Seventh house, will also help."
Chandra = rogesha-6 = "The Problematizer"
Chandra rules bhava-6, granting a particularly intuitive understanding and ability for matters of conflict management, litigation, pollution, exploitation, accusation and various expressions of unfair imbalance. Often seen in environmental, medical, and social-service roles.
The Kumbha native = often a spiritual aspirant with emotional and financial problems . One seeks moksha but an underlying emotional illness may prevent spiritual relaxation and release.
the native may feel oft beset with jealousy and mood swings, digestive problems and body pain of emotional origin, and financial problems due to indebtedness also originating in emotionally charged taking of loans.
Due to awkward lordship for Chandra, Kumbha lagna is a fairly difficult life placement. Kumbha lagna nativities are somewhat less commonly distributed. Often, the only partner who can really understand Kumbha is another Kumbha.
Animals and Servants = Emotional Protective Instinct
Trust Issues with Parents, Nurturers and Caretakers
It is a dilemma that is profoundly acute and often painful for Kumbha: the parents, especially the mother = manipulative, unreliable and disagreeable. Extreme results can be criminal.
Abuse by the maternal uncle (6 = 3rd from 4th) or someone posing in that role (e.g., a temporary companion of the mother addressed as 'uncle'.)
Rahu drishti to Chandra or Rahu-Karkata can exacerbate the outcome.
. For both men and women, lifelong 'problematicity' (a repeating argument involving several interlocked problems) with betraying women, especially one's own mother
For a male, distrust of the mother of one's children.
For a female, one's own nurturing capabilities are oddly handicapped by relationship breakdown, and the flow of parenting energy may be only intermittent. Often the mother is separated from her children by her feeling that she is not quite capable of providing daily routine and shelter.
Unless Professor Chandra is very well placed, the may be deep issues with animosity and distrust. Although these feelings (Somana) may be masked by a veneer of emotional responsiveness to others, at base the native is challenged to extract . Chandra well disposed in radix or navamsha may compensate socially with a stable public marriage but even a comfortable placement of Somana cannot quickly erase the deep karma of early childhood harm by the parents. Especially acute with Chandra in a Nakshatra of Chandra (Rohini, Hasta, Sravana ).
As rogesha-6 for Kumbha lagna, the highly fluctuating and impressionable Chandra provides consistently frustrating emotional challenges in life.
The very force of maternal caring and (ideally) unconditional acceptance by the mother is oppressed into service as the disagreeable rogesha-6 .
Chandra ruler of Core Emotions controls the awkward , unbalanced Ripu Bhava. A fundamental lack of trust in nurturers, and in those who have assumed caretaker or protector roles in the current incarnation, provides a significant challenge to one's attempt to achieve lasting agreements in emotional relationships.
Kumbha lagna and Kumbha chandra are both good indicators of success in monastic spiritual life. this success begins to accelerate when one understands and accepts the karmic predicament of Kumbha's emotional constitution in this life. The most satisfying emotional relationships happen between the Kumbha native and the ishtadevata.
However human emotional relationships with their complex and relentless expectation of compassionate nurturing acceptance will be systematically disappointed. Kumbha natives may attempt multiple marriages and marriage-type commitments in the fond pursuit of a lasting agreement, but even the most lovely Moon
Marriage and Alliances
Professor Chandra unbalances relationships between individual partners, between individuals and various groups, and between the individual and society.
Emotional mandate (often unconscious) toward multiple marriages or no marriage. Underlying search for compensatory parenting, wants a caretaker spouse. Seeks shelter, protection, and nourishment yet this native is attracted to Simha-type spouses who are somewhat self-centered.
A peculiar pattern of matching energy occurs in the Kumbha marriage. Yet the spouse's imagination (12th from 7th) is so overcharged with animosity due to their own childhood, that when combined with one's own (matching) self-accusation and internalized blaming from the parents that sustaining a marriage may be an overwhelming emotional challenge.
Social isolation or Fringe identity
One tends to get in and out of relationships very quickly, due to the chronic emotional need to find one's place in life but followed shortly by the emotional reaction to the inevitable loss of agreement that is the hallmark of the lord of Ripu Bhava.
Chandra is an especially difficult graha for Kumbha nativities in which Chandra = rogesha-6 from both radix lagna (material animosity) and Chandra lagna (emotional imbalance-seeking-a-remedy): e.g., Kumbha radix lagna + Kumbha Chandra (a fairly rare type of nativity) Professor Chandra rules bhava-6: for Kumbha lagna.
rogesha-6 Chandra = women in the parenting or caretaking role are problematic in the lifetime.
Agents of breakdown of trust = virtually any person (male or female) vested in a parental, protective trust.
No matter how fortunate Chandra's character by other measures, Kumbha natives face an underlying karma of disappointment from women in general.
One's own mother = victimized by exploitive or domineering others. Perhaps she was forced to abandon a career she enjoyed in order to follow her husband's wishes; perhaps her servitude is more oppressive. She might have suffered a chronic illness or been obliged to repay another's debt. One may feel that the mother's taste in husbands was degrading in some sense.

During Kuja's dasha-periods, if one has sufficient administrative business inclinations and Kuja is reasonably auspicious at birth, it may be OK to apply coral and other gems of Kuja.

For the Kumbha nativity, Guru = dhanapati-2 and Vriddhipathi-11. Brihasapti becomes a dhanakaraka producing both saved-collected-hoarded value-2 (both knowledge wealth and material items) along with economic profits-11.
There are four main TREASURY bhava
Optimistic and inclusive Brihaspati becomes a highly benevolent
dhanapati-2 + Vriddhipathi-11 financial well-being generator for Kumbha lagna.
Goldhord according to Brihaspati's bhava and the rashi.
Wise and expansive Professor Guru controls wealth for the Kumbha nativity via
For Kumbha lagna, presuming that Professor Guru is fairly well disposed, periods of dhanapati-2 + Vriddhipathi-11 Brihaspati can generate considerable treasure via family-of-origin hoarded assets and knowledge-values, along with earned income from the economic marketplace of commodities, goods and services.
Professor Guru can use His tenants to expand the banked collections.
Mahadasha of Guru emphasizes values both scholarly and material (language, knowledge of history, speech, art, music, and money) . In addition to substantial wealth, all periods of Guru including any bhukti wherein Guru occupies a favorable angle from the mahadasha-pati can also be expected to bring the realization of clearly articulated goals and objectives in life.
Via the elder brother or a helpful agent who serves a mentoring role similar to what an elder brother would do, one may receive generous aid in bringing one's cherished goals into the field of material reality.
yellow sapphire (pushkaraja,"pukhraj") supports Guru
Professor Guru and lagnesha Shani are neutral toward each other, therefore the pushkarya-raja-ratna,"pukhraj" is suitable to wear during periods of Brihaspati. Double-check to ensure that Guru is also well disposed in reference to Chandra-lagna.
Apply the pukhara-raja-ratna with caution, appreciating that dhanapati-2 Guru is an empowered hoarder, an empowered earner, and an empowered maraka. According to BPHS ch 43, the period of Chandra-Guru can be fatal.
Although a maraka graha, Guru will normally not kill the native early in life, unless Brihaspati is also lord of 2nd from Chandra or 7th from Chandra. Therefore Kumbha natives should avoid the "Pukh-raj" when Chandra occupies Vrischika, Kumbha, Kanya, or Mithuna.
Otherwise, as Dr. Kapoor notes, those not under imminent threat of death may enjoy the fruits of treasuries and a broad network of friendly association by enhancement from the Guru Ratna.
Vimshottari Dasha of Brihaspati
Depending on characteristics of Brihaspati according to yuti-graha, rashi, drishti. and bhava, Guru Mahadasha for the Kumbha radical nativity is generally a period of great economic incomes and great conservation of treasuries gained.
Guru's mulatrikona being Dhanushya, overall effects of labha-bhava-11 are generally somewhat stronger than the effects of dhanasthana-2.
Because of the role played by Professor Guru for the Kumbha nativity, and the natural neutrality of Guru toward lagnesha Shani, it is a common experience that a steady stream of opportunities for economic profitability and the expansion of the social network would accompany a great capacity to save, preserve, conserve, and contain the treasuries gained via economic systems participation during this 16-year mahadasha.
According to Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994).
Gems and Astrology . Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 108
"For the Aquarius Ascendant,
Still yellow sapphire can be worn in the major period of Jupiter particularly when it is in his own sign in the 2nd or the 11th, to gain wealth, children and other comforts.
Yogakaraka Zukra rules 4-foundations, childhood, cultural rhythms, ethnic basis ++ 9-doctrine, philosophy, credenda, beliefs
Doctrine * Ideology * Belief * Catechesis * Credenda
As bandupathi-4 and dharmapathi-9, Zukra regulates both the local, seasonal religious calendar (4) and the global, universal philosophical principles which produce higher sacred knowledge.
Thula = Zukra's moolatrikona. = identical to Kumbha's dharmasthana, Zukra is philosophically minded, although in a predictably orthodox fashion.
Professor Zukra = dhata-karaka = oriented to harmonizing, negotiating, bargaining, agreement-making. Zukra's expressions of public piety and less to the quiet, invisible realm of private prayer which is governed by ruler-of-12 Shani..
bandesha-4 +dharmesha-9 Zukra is a powerful Yogakaraka for Kumbha lagna.
As a natural pleasure-giver subhagraha bandesha-4 +dharmesha-9 , sweet and sensual Professor Zukra becomes a potent and positive Yogakaraka in control of schooling (4), attainments in arts and music (Zukra), property and vehicle ownership (4); relationships with priests and professors (9), and privilege of access to sacred teachings (9).
Depending on Zukra's full character (rashi, drishti, et-cetera.) periods of Zukra are usually very beneficial for the Kumbha native.
A good position of Zukra in the Kumbha lagna chart can compensate for many other planned misalignments requiring realignment attention . Zukra is best in any kendra, but especially in lagna where it makes the person physically attractive and brings much happiness from property ownership, interior decorating, architectural practice and also from global scholarly travels in the context of alliance-building and acquisition of higher knowledge.
White Diamond is very auspicious for this native. Particularly good for schooling, diplomas, certificates, licenses. Also deed of title to property. Native going back to school, seeking professional development, teacher skills training etc.
Badhaka -sthana = harming-houses houses
Badhakasthana = Thula
dharmesha-9 Zukra = badhesha
However, Zukra is also a very positive agent for most outcomes of Kumbha:
Therefore little harm is really possible. Expect the occasional bumpy interaction with badhaka agents during periods of Zukra, but nothing serious.
Professor Zukra's badhesha status mainly produces the occasional problematic relationship (Zukra) with a dharmasthana agent such as professor, preacher, father, paternalistic personality or patriarch. Perhaps the most common outcome is that the father (9) may have an inordinate appreciation for the feminine charms, which can cause the native to feel that his marital commitment (Zukra) could waver. However, unless dharmesha-9 and the teachings of Professor Surya are subject to prolonged and repeating lessons (which are in reality multiple opportunities for accepting of gifts of understanding)usually via constrictive drishti. There is no cause for genuine concern.
Special note on Zukra-Mithuna-5:
Zukra, the karaka of luxury, beauty, partnered relationships, equity, and female companions, occupies bhava-5, the site of self-empowerment, self-expression, royalty, celebrity, creativity, fashion, entertainments, genius, speculation, games, winning, theatre, and applause.
It is probably not realistic to expect that the needs of literary, conversational, fashionable, linguistic, multi-cultural, and sensually sensitive Zukra would be met within entirely by the marriage partner.
The marriage partner of the Kumbha lagna native is materially represented (partly) by Professor Surya ruler of Simha-7. Surya is by character a rather self-concerned graha. The spouse is a wonderful person no doubt, but by nature such a spouse is rather more concerned with his or her day-to-day ego-membrane activities than with catering delicately to the marriage partner's pleasure.
For ladies with Zukra-Mithuna:
It is much more realistic for most women to enjoy having a good part of one's sensual need met, pleasurably and with a light touch, in the company of women.
Day spa treatments, all varieties of massage; delicate care of the hair, skin, nails and face; talk of relationships (Zukra) and beauty (texture, design, color, balance in all things); can all be found in the company of sensitive women who are trained to beautify and soothe physical body.
Many women find that their need for delicate touch is met more successfully in a spa environment, with massage therapy appointments, or other beautification. Less sensitive men often perceive these feminine environments as quite foolish. Also, a woman with heavy sole-provider responsibilities might be forced to deprive herself of all luxuries, thus she might see Zukra's indulgence as foolish and wasteful.
Both men and women with Zukra-Mithunaya are sensual beings! (And the ultimate sensual experience for these natives is, usually, either sexual lovemaking itself or the experience of conversing about the details of relationships.)
For Kumbha lagna, Zukra-Mithuna occupies the fortunate 5th-from lagna, and Zukra = Yogakaraka
From a Jyotisha perspective, so long as Budha is well-disposed, Zukra-Mithuna is a completely lovely planet whose periods bring many blessings and delights.
For a lady in Zukra bhukti who was feeling touch-deprived, yet respectful and appreciative of her busy and responsible husband:
It seems like a massage appointment, an afternoon at an Ayurvedic day spa, a series of regular beautification treatments for hair, nails, skin etc., could all be very pleasant methods of receiving the delicate, sensual, healing touch that the Zukra-Mithuna body craves, without in the least endangering one's marriage.
During Zukra-Mithuna period, it is essential to receive a delicate touch (Mithunaya rules the Hands = a"conversation of touch"); to enjoy female companionship (sisters, cousins, coworkers, housemates, lady friends from all sources); and to receive attention for the balanced loveliness of your appearance. bhava-5 is all about appearance!
According to Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994).

Therefore, Venus is considered an excellent and Yogakaraka planet for these Ascendants.
In the major period of Venus, wearing of a Diamond is a 'must' for those who have faith in the divine power of gem stones.
lagnesha-1 + ruler-of-12
Pragmatic and conventional Shani controls both identity and loss of identity.
For Kumbha lagna nativities, Professor Shani plays a special role. While not granting extraordinary vitality in the physical body (such as the lagnesha can normally do) Shani may help the native to cultivate a practice of mature withdrawal from the frenzy of modern life, pragmatic service to others, ability to see the common traits in all sentient beings, and a dedicated meditation practice. Shani may be the agent of acquisition of a great inner peace.
Even in middle age, undertaking long sojourn abroad during Shani bhukti is easy for the Kumbha native due to the identity-dissolving effects of 12 combined with the new-clothes or new-attributes effect of 1.
One may cautiously apply the Nilama and Professor Shani's lesser stones during Shani bhukti s.

Rahu's effects for Kumbha lagna depend significantly on Rahu's bhava, rashi, and incoming drishti. risk-rewarding Rahu's effects for Kumbha lagna depend significantly on Rahu's bhava, rashi, and incoming drishti.
Professor Rahu amplifies the effect of any graha who are sharing Rahu's house; and also Rahu magnifies the effects of the lord of His occupied Rashi.
Rahu and Ketu are said to give positive results in the 3rd, 6th, and 11th bhava from the lagna or from Chandra.
In addition, some authorities posit that since Rahu-Ketu are exalted in Vrishabha-Vrizchika (per BPHS), that Rahu-Ketu tend to produce comfortable results when Professor Mangala and Professor Bright Bhrigu 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. )

to predict the effects of Ketu Mahadasha, measure:
Professor Mangala's teachings can be an engine of self-destructive sexual coupling (Mangala-Budha) for Kumbha nativities. Ketu-ratna Vaidurya is unlikely to be a beneficial gem except for matters of self-explanatory narrative especially mystical-transformative writing and publication.
Even for those special purposes, prescribe the Ketu-ratna only if the lord of bhava-3 and its occupants are auspicious.
Under certain carefully assessed circumstances, if the lord of bhava-10 and occupants of karma bhava are comfortably placed, and a "scattering" non-discriminating effect could be perhaps helpful, the Cat's Eye might aid special cases of iconic public recognition (10). These are rare circumstances but they do occur.
