Giving of Animals in Charity

In addition to mantra, it is possible to follow Shri Parashara's instruction for remedial action of giving a cow, buffalo, or goat in charity.

  • www.heifer.org provides life-giving animals and veterinary skills training to impoverished families throughout our world. It's easy and fun to select a charitable gift from their online catalog of buffaloes, cows, goats and more.

  • www.oxfamamericaunwrapped.com/animal-gifts.html also offers a lovely catalog of animal-donation selections

from The Gelug/Kagyu Tradition of Mahamudra

by 14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso ,

Dalai Lama Heart of Wisdom Calendar 2012(June)

"When serving society or others in general, it is very important to set a proper motivation at the start of each day.

  • When we wake up each morning, we reflect, 'Today I am not going to come under the power of either attachment or hostility.
  • Today I am going to be of benefit and help to others.'

Thus we consciously set the tone for the entire day so that we go through it within the context of a pure, altruistic motivation and attitude."

Special considerations for the Kumbha nativity

When Chandra-occupies-Kumbha

then Vimshottari Periods of Chandra may offer a challenge to remedy emotional imbalances because Kumbha-Chandra rules the 6th-from-Chandra

Also for the Kumbha radical lagna nativity, Professor Chandra rules the maha-dusthamsha satkona-6 suggesting that one may be emotionally involved in environments that are defined by conflict and disagreement either internal (physical-emotional) or external (social-material).

ChandraRosasDeux.jpg

General characteristics of a Chandra period

An era of amplified feelings for home and homeland. One may seek residence near the ocean shores, or shipbound. Retreat to safety and a secure routine. Typically, Chandra periods mark times of quiet retreat, ideally near the ocean. Emotional relationships are psychically sensitive and care-taking. Emphasis on domestic routines, food and nurturing, caring for and serving others, staying close to home.

Chandra is the garha-karaka for household life. Promoting the experience of familiar, rhythmic, routines and sheltered security Professor Chandra nearly always maintains some degree of comfort along with heightened feelings of patriotism, self-defense, attachment to parents, love of the land, need for comfortable rhythms and routines, and a persistent need for security.

Generally, expect an increase in the experiences associated with Chandra such as deeper emotional sensitivity, engagement with matters of security and stability, cultural tap-roots, foundational education, patriotism, defense of national-ethnic boundaries and fenced lands, as well as matters of the mother and her folk.

The specific outcome of any Chandra period depends upon the bhava rulerships held by Chandra as measured from both the radical lagna and the Chandra-lagna. Outcomes are also affected by drishti entering Chandra, by the role of Chandra's planetary ruler, and very importantly by the bhava in which Chandra resides. Chandra is so sensitive psycho-emotionally that Chandra bhukti outcomes are also particularly influenced by transits of Rahu-Ketu or transits of Shani.


Chandra seeks Safety, Stability, Soothing Rhythms

Soma wants to feel safe and secure . Soma wants to be nourished, sheltered, protected, rooted in the folklore and homeland folk customs and cultural norms of one's people, a harvester and cultivator, feeling the ancient rhythm of the ocean tides.

Chandra Mahadasha is perhaps the most emotionally focused period in human life because Professor Chandra teaches on topics of the Mind. Awareness "Mind" broadly encompasses all of the human perceptions of reality. The environments of Chandra are emotionally influenced, absorptive, responsive and reactive.

Chandra literally belongs to the Earth. The satellite which patterns and governs human emotional frequencies was towed here for the purpose of stabilizing the once-wild oceans. By nature, the teaching of Professor Chandra

  • seeks repeating rhythms
  • promotes habits which wear deep ruts in the consciousness
  • applies a routine
  • delivers protection
  • supplies nourishment
  • defends boundaries
  • secures bindings
  • facilitates contentment
  • establishes a deep sense of rootedness
  • reinforces the feeling of belonging to a particular place on Earth.

Chandra is domestic, parochial, local, and ethnic. He parents, protects, and shelters. He fishes, farms, and houses. He seeks the consolation of the ebb-and-flow soothing tidal patterns of predictable daily life.

To determine whether Chandra's characteristic need for reliable routine and psycho-physical security are indeed provided during His mahadasha, carefully assess Chandra's characteristics in both D-1 and D-9 by rashi, bhava, nakshatra, and incoming graha-drishti.

Main effects of Chandra swabhukti are determined by Chandra's bhava + rashi, karaka agency of Caretaking Chandra, incoming-and-outgoing drishti, current transits, and the age of the native.

  • If the native is older than 50, the entire nativity should be read from the basis of Chandra lagna; however look also secondarily to the social-material effects as counted from the radical lagna.

The Chandra-Chandra swabhukti = the relatively brief (10 mos.) but emotionally definitive "opening bell" of Somana's rhythmic, habitual, caretaking, stabilizing, nourishing Vimshottari Dasha.


Effects due to karaka empowerment or bhava rulership

First and foremost, Mother. Grandmother. Caretakers, parents, grandparents, guardians, agents in loco parentis, nourishers, protectors, defenders, police, farmers, fishers, cultivators, ethnicities, place of settlement, home, house, security, fences, boundaries, lands, folk customs and cultural norms of the people, activities regarding ownership and anything related to roots.

Vehicles of every variety, including craft of land, air, and water, are favored. Depending upon character of Chandra, the mode of transit may be public such as omnibus, railcar or ferry-boat; or private such as automobile or single-engine aircraft. Transit is generally comfortable, secure, and easy to obtain. Chandra favors familiar local movements therefore best results for repeating local transit such as a comfortable and reliable daily work commute. If a location might need a new shipping harbor, Chandra may also help with any need for sheltering connected with transit.

Strong preference for the Old Ways and deep need of a rhythmic routine in the daily life. Parenting, policing, school-teaching and stewardship of the land are favored. Nourishment is easy to obtain and generally local in origin. Sheltered environments, safety, security, protection of weaklings; oceans and coastal lifestyle; seafood, marshes, estuary; fisheries; things underground such as burials, basements, and bunkers.


Predict the agents and environments of the 10-year Chandra Mahadasha via the placements of Chandra in the kundali. Because Soma's influence is so deeply psycho-emotional in nature, pay special attention to Chandra's Nakshatra.

For example,

  • when Chandra resides in a nakshatra of Shani, Chandra-Chandra swabhukti sets the stage for a 10-year commitment to social duty, public service, a respectable and acknowledged roster of responsibilities.

  • when Chandra resides in a nakshatra of Zukra, Chandra-Chandra swabhukti sets the stage for a 10-year engagement with negotiation of contracts, balancing of mutual interests, and acquisition of material treasures.

  • when Chandra resides in a nakshatra of Surya, Chandra-Chandra swabhukti sets the stage for a 10-year radiation of personal centrality, getting of attention and praise, heightened self-interest, and expressions of unique intelligence.

Predict social-material effects from the D-1 primarily; psycho-emotional effects (including relationship experiences) from the D-9 primarily.

During the Chandra mahadasha one wants a rhythmic, routine lifestyle.


Transitioning from Surya-Zukra period

Typically the Chandra-Chandra swabhukti experience is emotionally intelligent, and somewhat favoring the needs of the self rather others due to the Dasha Sandhi transition from Surya mahadasha (depending on the overall strength of Surya) but still quite relationships-sensitive due to the previous bhukti having been Zukra..

Notice a prominently sensed need for rhythmic behaviors, regular habits, a safe and comfortable dwelling, routine relationships especially kinship, and a stable capacity to take care of others -as soon as one's own needs are met.

Depending on Chandra's bhava, Chandra-Chandra swabhukti transitioning from the Surya-Zukra period, often signals a move away from a relationship focus (Zukra) into a heightened emotional self-understanding. Likely Chandra confers increased ability to meet one's own needs via a supportive lifestyle and self-nourishment.

Relationship with the mother begins to intensify and will remain salient throughout the 10 years of Chandra Mahadasha. Bond with the mother may express as physical-social or psycho-emotional or - for some rare aspirants - spiritual with the Divine Mother. Land-owning, steward-protector, curator-caretaker, guardian-groundsman, parenting and school-teaching roles predominate.

If Chandra rules either navamsha-1 or navamsha-7, the Chandra-Chandra swabhukti is an auspicious time for marriage.


Leadership Duties, Public Respect, and Professional Recognition

When Chandra rules the 7th or 10th radical bhava or10th navamsha or 10th-from-Chandra, Professor Para carries the potential to elevate the native into socially recognized positions of career authority and responsibilities. Promotion and obtainment of professional portfolio may be expected.

Professor Somana carries the potential to elevate the native into socially recognized positions of leadership duty associated with parenting, schoolteaching, security and police protection , farming and fishing, housing and real estate, vehicles and transportation (especially the safety aspects)ritualists and routine-makers, patriotism, and all matters of nourishing and sustaining the place of settlement .

For maximum results, Chandra should possess other strengths via bhava rulership, razi, companion graha, drizti, inter alia.

  • Particularly for Chandra karmapathi Thula lagna and also for Makara lagna where Chandra rules 10th-from-10th, appointment to a higher position of social leadership can be expected to raise the social reputation and increase public regard.

Marriage

Any Chandra period during any mahadasha may support ceremonial marriage, if Chandra rules either the navamsha-1 or the navamsha-7 AND there occurs a suitable transit of Rahu-Ketu contacting one of the required axes of the nativity. Chandra-timed marriage especially indicates Chandra qualities in the marital union, including a parental mate, emotionally sensitive and responsive, a caretaker, nourisher, guardian, defender, and patriot.


Maraka Agency for Professor Chandra * Exit Opening for fleshdeath

When Chandra rules bhava-2 or bhava-7, Professor Soma becomes a potential marana-karaka who gives teachings upon the subject of saturation (2) and balanced completion of the contract (7).

Measured from Makara lagna, Chandra obtains maraka empowerment as ruler of jaya-bhava-7.

Measured from Mithunaya lagna, Chandra obtains maraka empowerment as ruler of dhana-bhava-2.

Achillea * Red Yarrow

Chandra sees Kuja as a neutral.

For Kuja, Chandra, Surya, and Guru = Friends

Main effects of Chandra-Mangala bhukti are determined by

  • the angle between Chandra and Mangala,

  • karaka agency of Militant Moving Mangala,

  • Mangala's bhava + rashi,

  • incoming-and-outgoing drishti,

  • current transits, and the age of the native.

Chandra and Mangala are a successful pair. Chandra's rhythmic pulse tends to stabilize and ground the hyperactive Mangala which results in steadier and generally more productive output. Chandra-Mangala yoga is a known dhana yoga for this reason.


Easier angles

  • Kuja-Chandra enjoy a 5-9 angle
  • Mesha lagna Mangala lagnesha
  • Vrizchika lagna Mangala lagnesha
  • Kuja atmakaraka

More challenging angles

Although a relatively brief period of time, if Kuja is reasonably well disposed, the Chandra-Mangala yoga is typically busy and fruitful.

Career auspice:

  • If Mangala is well disposed and He rules the 10th navamsha or the 10th radical bhava, professional recognition or promotion to a higher rank may be expected

Events related to Mangala's bhava location, rulerships, or karaka functions

A preponderance of young males may be expected in the environment. They might be students, soldiers, or sportsmen. The nature of the sport can be financial or intellectual as well as physical. Females can run Kuja energy if they are athletes, soldiers, or very competitively energetic, but normally the agents are male.

Animal sexual instincts may rise, and married persons may find that sexual communion cures any tendency toward disagreement.

  • Those with Kuja Dosha should apply caution during any Mangala bhukti, but particularly now be careful during Chandra-Mangala due to the heightened emotional sensitivity which can lead to irritation and feeling manipulated or emotionally trapped.

In the workplace, competitive and dominating instincts are stronger than normal, motivated ultimately by Chandra's emotional need to feel reassured that one does belong in the place. Therefore some caution is urged toward shrewd use of Kuja's urge to play and win.

  • Unless one has a military or other paid-to-be-aggressive sort of career, making a show of sympathy is likely the best way of being accepted in the work environment - yet during this period one tends to seek acceptance (Chandra) via championship (Mangala).

Take care not to threaten others with displays of power; rather, cultivate an aura of energetic sheltering and protection.


Leadership Duties, Public Respect, and Professional Recognition

When Mangala rules the 7th or 10th radical bhava or10th navamsha or 10th-from-Chandra, Professor Kuja carries the potential to elevate the native into socially recognized positions of career authority and responsibilities. Promotion and obtainment of professional portfolio may be expected.

Mangala-types duties are typically associated with movement, dance, energy, competition, conquest, innovation, engines and engineering, invasion, surgery, sexual pursuit, sport, physical body and its sciences, military, explosion, drilling, diving, weaponry and warfare, heat, speed, investigation, exploration, and male-dominated environments.

For maximum results, Kuja must occupy a supportive angle vis-a-vis Mahadashapathi Chandra, and Professor Angarika should possess several strengths via bhava rulership, razi, companion graha, drizti, inter alia.


Marriage

Any Mangala period during any mahadasha may support ceremonial marriage, if Kuja rules either the navamsha-1 or the navamsha-7 AND there occurs a suitable transit of Rahu-Ketu contacting one of the required axes of the nativity. Mangala-timed marriage especially indicates the qualities of Angarika in the marital union, including a physically athletic, competitive, exploratory, innovative, dynamically energetic, or warlike mate.


Maraka Agency for Professor Mangala * Exit Opening for fleshdeath

When Mangala rules bhava-2 or bhava-7, Professor Kuja becomes a potential marana-karaka who gives teachings upon the subject of saturation (2) and balanced completion of the contract (7).

commentary from Shri B.V. Raman,

Autobiography of a Vedic Astrologer , p. 99-100:

"It has been my experience over nearly sixty years that Rahu as sub-lord, whether in his own period or in the period of other planets, would always create problems of a serious nature, affecting family and personal matters, which would Test the mental and physical stamina of an individual whatever be his social, educational, or financial attainments.

  • It is also found, contrary to general belief, that planets like the Sun and Mercury, occupying Rahu's constellations are capable of conferring happy results financially and career-wise but would create situations in domestic life, which could shatter a person's self-confidence and make him experience results which he would ordinarily never expect to happen.

There are of course exceptions which I will discuss in due course..."

Chandra Mahadasha + Rahu bhukti

  • duration of the bhukti: 18 months

  • graha pakvata : Rahu periods yield improved results after age 48 = the age of maturity for Rahu


What to expect during a Rahu bhukti?

Evaluate the placements of Rahu.

Consider the rashi + bhava owned and occupied + the angle from the mahadasha-pathi to the bhukti-pati + incoming-outgoing graha-drishti + current gochara transits + age of the native. Has the graha matured ?

Now, consider each of these factors again with reference to Rahu's ruler . Rahu gives the effects of His occupied bhava AND the bhava which are ruled by His planetary ruler.

  9. Rahu-Dhanuzya
  10. Rahu-Makara
  11. Rahu-Kumbha * swakshetra
  12. Rahu-Meena

Main effects of the Chandra-Rahu bhukti are determined by

  • the angle between Chandra and Rahu
  • karaka agency of Rahu the Rogue
  • Rahu's bhava + rashi
  • incoming-and-outgoing drishti
  • current transits
  • age of the native.

Chandra-Rahu period may bring Rahu-agents who are parent-poseurs (often females) or 'faux' parent figures.

There may also be expedient or capricious actions from Chandra-related agents such as landlords, those involved schooling, local police, or those charged with providing nourishment such as farmers, fishers, and purveyors of nutrient.

Easier angles

  • Rahu-Chandra enjoy a 5-9 angle

More challenging angles

Career auspice:

  • If Rahu's ruler is also the lord of the 10th navamsha or the 10th radical bhava, burning ambition for success followed by professional recognition or promotion to a higher rank may be expected.

Ambitious Expedient Exciting Agency of Rahu

Foreigners or those of exotic provenance. Rule-breakers who are typically clever in their methods and motivated by an urge to self-elevate and obtain higher privileges. If Rahu is well placed, internationalism is profitable and ambition to deal with foreign persons, products, or concepts is well rewarded.

Rahu agents interact with Chandra's promise to provide a stable, sheltered lifestyle involving seasonal (Chandra) cycles which define life in a fixed place.

One may indeed self-elevate via insinuation into the class of parent-protector-steward-landsman whilst in company of the Rahu agent(s).

However toward the end of the Rahu bhukti it may become more obvious that most of the Rahu agent's claims are emotional -mirroring mimicry.

Rahu the Eclipse-maker appears to offer protective shelter . Yet as a great enemy annihilator of Chandra, famously Reckless Rahu is inherently unstable due to His urgent ambition and His very constitution is arrhythmic in nature.

Toward the end of the bhukti, Rahu's pretension to deliver emotional security, rhythmic stability in the lifestyle, rootedness in the land, and regular meals is typically exposed as fraudulent in some way. Chandra's endotic parochialism cannot, at its root, accommodate Rahu's adventurous risk-taking commingling with exotics.

The parent-protector privileges which Rahu seeks cannot be obtained by arrhythmic methods. If Rahu enjoys a favorable angle vis-a-vis Chandra, the Chandra-Rahu period may be pleasant but the end result will not be obtainment of the highest privileges sought by Rahu the Protector Pretender.

Rather, a Rahu adventure may be had, and some tentative privileges gained, but with no sustaining (Chandra) roots laid. However, the subsequent Guru, Shani, and Budha periods are often able to provide more established security.

If Chandra-yuti-Rahu, this Chandra-Rahu sub-period can be experienced as an exhilarating reunion with the parent or parent-figure. Yet in the end the pretensions of that Rahu-pretender-figure are revealed, and one is returned to the inevitable basic need to personally establish the ground of one's own security.

Chandra's need to seek an unchanging and unshakable foundation for one's own emotional well-being will not go away even during the ambitious excitement of a Rahu period. A solid rooting in the presence of the Divine is the only viable bulwark against unpredictable and unsettling changes.


Marriage

Any Rahu period during any mahadasha may support ceremonial marriage, if a suitable transit of Rahu-Ketu contacting one of the required axes of the nativity.

Rahu-timed marriage show Rahu-the-Mixmaster at work. Rahu-timed marriage suggests an impulsive but goal-oriented alliance. The partner hails from a fascinatingly different set of cultural roots, a different social class or race, or a different religion; these differences facilitate Rahu's over-reaching ascent and are perceived as irresistible and exciting.

Irregular Rahu sees a mesmerizing opportunity for expediently reaching His goals, and He acts decisively without delay. There is relatively little time invested in preparation for the ceremony and there may be only partial agreement of the families. So long as the partners continue to each reach their goals through agency of the union, Rahu-timed marriages may endure as long as any other. Longevity of the marriage depends upon the marriage profile elements in both nativities, particularly the 7th-from-Chandra.

Unlike the previous Chandra-Rahu period which may have introduced some shady characters or intense desires, the Chandra-Guru period is typically pleasant and accommodating, according to the character of Guru.

Main effects of Chandra-Guru bhukti are determined by the angle between Chandra and Guru, karaka agency of Generous Guru, Brihaspati's bhava, rashi, incoming-and-outgoing drishti, current transits, and the age of the native.

Events related to Zukra's bhava location, rulerships, or karaka functions

Characteristic Agency of Guru

Expansion of all things, including physical body, emotional capability, mental understanding, and spiritual wisdom.

Dramatis personae often include Guru-type figures such as priests, professors, preachers, paternalistic personalities, pundits, pontificators, and paternoster. Featured environments may include universities; houses of worship; temples; homes guided by a wise, elderly male; spaces dedicated to religious study; and any environment which features charity, inclusion, or expansion.

For those of child-bearing age, Guru periods are typically fertile. A woman who wants to bear a child has a very good chance of fulfilling her wish during any bhukti of Guru; but the uniquely child-supportive, fertile and parental combination of Chandra-Guru makes this particular bhukti a very auspicious time for delivering a child.

Children

Guru bhukti of any mahadasha are naturally fertile periods which tend to produce children on the basis of Brihaspati's role as a natural putra-putriki karaka without regard to bhava rulerships or other rules. Even an otherwise child-resistant nativity may produce children during Guru Bhukti, so long as samchara Rahu-Ketu are transiting a key lagna.


Higher Education and Theoretical or Doctrinal Awards

Naturally Guru's bhava determines the manifestation of this bhukti. Overall, Guru periods signify the arrival of a significant teacher-preacher figure within wise, sacred locations. The locations are often determined by the residential bhava of Guru. For example Guru-12 location would be meditative or imaginative or distant world, whereas Guru-9 would be a classic university setting but Guru-4 would be a local settlement and Guru-3 likely a commercial business.

The emphasis is on wisdom and expansion. Periods of Brihaspati the university-karaka are likely times to complete a tertiary diploma following many (Guru) years of study, particularly if Guru is otherwise associated by rashi or by bhava, and particularly if the native intends to use their knowledge in order to teach.


Leadership Duties, Public Respect, and Professional Recognition

When Shani rules the 7th or 10th radical bhava or10th navamsha or 10th-from-Chandra, Professor Shanaicarya carries the potential to elevate the native into socially recognized positions of leadership duty associated with governance, regulation, systematization, hierarchies, and the maintenance of the social order. Promotion and obtainment of professional portfolio may be expected.

For maximum results, Shani must occupy a supportive angle vis-a-vis Mahadashapathi Chandra, and Shani should possess other strengths via bhava rulership, razi, companion graha, drizti, inter alia.


Marriage

Any Guru period during any mahadasha may support ceremonial marriage, if Brihaspati rules either the navamsha-1 or the navamsha-7 AND there occurs a suitable transit of Rahu-Ketu to one of the required axes of the nativity. Marriage during a period of Brihaspati especially indicates a fertile mate, a philosopher, a patron and perhaps rather patronizing, a preacher or a priest, one well suited to the role of father.


Maraka Agency for Professor Brihaspati * Exit Opening for fleshdeath

When Guru rules bhava-2 or bhava-7, Brihaspati becomes a potential marana-karaka who gives teachings upon the subject of saturation (2) and balanced completion of the contract (7).

Measured from Mithunaya lagna or from Kanya lagna, Brihaspati obtains maraka empowerment as ruler of jaya-bhava-7.

Main effects of Chandra-Shani bhukti are determined by the angle between Chandra and Shani, karaka agency of Sober Shani, Shani's bhava, rashi, incoming-and-outgoing drishti, current transits, and the age of the native.

Comfortable Chandra feels friendly toward Strict Shani, but compassionless Social Lawmaker Shani sees empathetic local home-based parental Chandra as an enemy of large-scale government.

As always, the outcome predictor = relative angle between Chandra and Shani. Majority of the experience = emotional rather than social-material due to effects necessarily measured from Chandra lagna. All Shani-related results improve with maturity and much easier after age 50.

Generally, the tasks and agenda of these two graha are mutually compatible overall so long as each one stays in their own domain.


Easier angles

  • Shani-Chandra enjoy a 5-9 angle
  • Makara lagna Shani lagnesha
  • Kumbha lagna Shani lagnesha
  • Shani atmakaraka

More challenging angles

  • Shani occupies 6th-from-Chandra
  • Shani occupies 8th-from-Chandra .
  • Shani occupies 12th-from-Chandra
  • Karkata lagna Shani = rogesha-6 + yuvatipathi-7
  • Simha lagna Shani = yuvatipathi-7 + randhresha-8

6 * disagreement = local vs. national standards

8 * sudden, forced changes in lifestyle due to act of Law

12 * dissolution of local realm, government mandated retreat

Career auspice:

  • If Professor Shani is well disposed and He rules the 10th navamsha or the 10th radical bhava, professional recognition or promotion to a higher rank may be expected

Overall Compatibility of Objective and Style

Chandra = customary, routine-loving, emotional agent of ethnic settlement and routine. Chandra's ancient rhythmic habits do not need the larger external governance structure of Shani's bureaucratic, regulatory hierarchies.

Normally Chandra and Shani do not interfere in each other's realms, but there are times when Professor Shani's demand for large-scale uniformity under the rule of regional or national law can impinge upon Chandra's deeply rooted, customary entitlements. If there is interference, it is typically Shani molesting Chandra and not the other way.

At the time of Chandra-Shani onset, 10-year Chandra mahadasha has been operating for approximately four years and four months time. The native has generally been swathed in a cocoon of ethnic routine consisting of local languages, food, religion, dress, festivals, rituals, manners, marriage customs and cultural norms, kinship relations, etc. Unless protective, maternal Chandra may be subject to prolonged and repeating lessons, His realm is quite comfortable and fluid.

The main focus of Chandra mahadasha is development of the astral plane, known as the 'ocean of emotion'. Shani bhukti tests the realism and maturity of that wellspring of sentimental, localized emotion by the standard of its utility for the greater society.

Shani = Material Reality

Shani does not recognize the reality of individual emotions; therefore Shani can only assess and legitimize the rooted folk customs and cultural norms of a people in their ancient place. Shani will test Chandra's folk customs and cultural norms for purpose of deciding whether they can be protected (or not) under the aegis of a larger-scale regional, national, or international rule of law.

Shani is unable to recognize the customary authority of Chandra-agents such as parents, local priests, parochial schools and schoolteachers, and rural farmers or fishermen. Often therefore during the Chandra-Shani bhukti, the agents of Chandra may temporarily lose their power to government authorities.

For example, most schoolteachers have a strong placement of Chandra. During Chandra-Shani bhukti, local schoolteachers who want to teach children using their village language may temporarily feel oppressed by government policies which force them to teach the national language. On the positive side, schoolteachers whose local practices may be traditional but are also harmful, such as the custom of beating students, may find themselves penalized by a government which can no longer tolerate their bad habit.

Also the silent entity of Earth's natural environment is governed by soothing, rhythmic Chandra. Shani-related damage to the local lands and waters can occur during Chandra-Shani periods when the local environment is unable to defend itself against large corporations and governments. On the positive side, tough government regulations may curtail local strongmen who normally abuse the land with impunity.

However like all bhukti of Chandra this sub-period is brief = 19 months. Due to Chandra having no planetary enemies, no conflict becomes irremediable or extreme. The subsequent Chandra-Budha period is likely to raise the argument more successfully due to Budha's skill with verbal logic.


Shani is not a starter; Shani is a finisher.

Shani's job is to freeze movement in order to impose law-and-order in the world. Shani is an agent of time, aging, material achievement, socially responsibility, dignified labor, and public respect. Shani allows only very slow progress and often no progress at all; His preferred condition is fixed, cold, wooden, stony stasis.

Chandra's mentality operates mainly in the astral (emotional) plane. Shani's workload occurs mainly on the material plane. In truth, these two levels inform and support each other. There is no serious conflict but there is definitely an experience of being tested - particularly tests of emotional (Chandra) maturity (Shani).

Shani-bhukti signals the time when Chandra must"walk the talk" of protective empathy by bringing the qualities of nourishment and parental concern into the cold, uncaring, inflexible hierarchies of Shani. Since the governing laws (Shani) are unlikely to share an emotional affinity with local feelings (Chandra), a fully neutral compassion toward Shani agents must come from parental Chandra. Only then can Shani be humanized.

The 10-year period designated for mastery of the emotional realm, to the extent predicted by the condition of Chandra in the kundali, is now approximately half-complete. When Shani bhukti begins, Chandra's emotional intuition - aiming for full compassion - has already passed through the four rotations of Chandra-Chandra, Chandra-Mangala, Chandra-Rahu, and Chandra-Guru.

It is now time for Shani's "mid-term exam" which will test the"formative" development of Chandra thus far, in bhukti 5 of 9.


Normally, Sturdy Shani is able to pass the tests in 19 months or less. However if Shani rules a dushthamsha there can be extra stress factors during the 19 months.

Potential for additional dushthamsha related anxiety and stress:

  • For Simha nativities, Shani's test of personal dignity in the face of social impunity may involve stress-related illness, usurious debts, workplace animosity or marital discord (6).

  • For Karkata natives, the test of yuvatipathi-7 + randhresha-8 Shani may expose a bitter but realistic truth once masked by emotional illusions of safety, especially regarding spousal in-laws, marital assets and hidden affairs. The native must prove that one can establish one's own safety structure without depending on marriage.

  • For the Meena nativity, the test of ruler-of-12 Shani is rarely harmful, but a mandatory retreat into sanctuary may be required. Shani being also L-11, friendships although limited can continue, and marketplace income remains steady.


Chandra-Shani bhukti may be somewhat tiring perhaps; restrictive; uncreative; and definitely overworked... but not harmful to emotion or spirit. Chandra-Shani is designed to impose a series of tests which assess emotional maturity and ability to maintain ethnic integrity in the context of larger-scale social governance structures.

Schoolteachers, parents, caretakers, shelter-providers, farmers, fishers, bhava-builders, land-owners, and those whose lifestyle is based in the local home culture may find their security temporarily threatened by Shani's demand for uniformity and one-size-fits-all national policy.

  • If Chandra = karmesha-10 (Thula lagna) the native may be involved in legislating national policy for education, housing, or protective care of the weak (including the local lands and waters).

Awards and Achievements

SShani naturally slows and stiffens, yet He does not prevent all material movements. In particular Shani favors gains of income (11) and receipt of awards for achievement (11) as well as public recognition (10) and dignified roles of institutional leadership (10).

  • For Thula lagna and Vrizchika lagna, Shani the Legitimator = lord of bandhu-bhava "boundaries and permissions ". bandesha-4 Shani favors competency testing that can produce permits, licenses and diplomas.

  • For Mesha nativities and Vrishabha nativities, Shani the Status Regulator = lord of karma-bhava. Shanaicarya may impose a series of mettle-testing career events which - if handled responsibly - can ultimately cause social recognition for professional achievement. For Mesha lagna Shani = karmesha-10 + Vriddhipathi-11 = results of Shani's stress-test are often favorable including career promotion (10) + gains of market revenue (11). For Vrishabha, although social dignity remains high, career may recede because Shani owns12th-from-10th.

  • Note that the developmental actions which lead to the socially recognized achievement have been finished previous to the award.


Social-material results of the final bhukti very much depend upon the relative angle between Chandra and Shani within the radix. Psycho-emotional results can be seen more clearly via the relative angle between Chandra and Shani within the navamsha.

Should Shani occupy the difficult 3rd-from-Chandra, the bhukti script may articulate subconscious expectations of excess gravity.

  • When sober Shani occupies 3rd-from-Chandra, items in the script can cause internal conditions of mental rigidity, extreme intolerance or depression to"act out" via agency of externally imposed strictures and austerities such as ab oppressively heavy survival workload.

  • Shani in 3rd-from-Chandra may hear frequent iterations of the language of weight and exhaustion such as "beast of burden"; resignation to conformist social pressure; suffering from punitive effects of government rules and regulations; or a chronic, defeating internal narrative of "just too hard".

As always, the "test" to finish laborious, heavy tasks during unforgiving conditions especially a tightly limited time schedule.


Marriage

Any Shani bhukti during any mahadasha may signal the timing of ceremonial wedding * formalization of alliance, if Shani rules either the navamsha-1 or the navamsha-7 AND there occurs a suitable transit of Rahu-Ketu to one of the required axes of the nativity.

Weddings matched to a jarana-karaka Shani bhukti especially indicate an elder, more experienced, or more senior mate. Shani durosha-karaka also suggests a sober and socially responsible person characterized by longevity and endurance. Shani niyama-karaka indicates that Shani-timed weddings (in any mahadasha) may be the consequence less of affection and more of social rules. The spouses may be marrying as an expression of social duty or in conformance with the expectations of others. Shani-timed events often carry the weight of pressing material-social obligations.

  • Federalist Papers 1755-1804 Alexander Hamilton was married on 14-Dec-1780. Chandra-Shani period. Shani rules his 7th navamsha.


Maraka Agency for Professor Shani * Exit Opening for fleshdeath

When Shani rules bhava-2 or bhava-7, Professor Shanicarya becomes a potential marana-karaka who gives teachings upon the subject of saturation (2) and balanced completion of the contract (7).

Measured from Karkata lagna or from Simha lagna, Shani obtains maraka empowerment as ruler of jaya-bhava-7.

Measured from Dhanuzya lagna or Makara lagna, Shani obtains maraka empowerment as ruler of dhana-bhava-2.

  • Chandra likes Budha as a friend;

  • but, due to their personal history, Budha hates Chandra

There is nearly always some tension between emotional intelligence, intuition, and sensitivity versus analytical or argumentative technical reasoning skills. Sibling rivalry is more common because Chandra = parents while Budha = siblings, especially the younger ones.

Budha-types duties are typically associated with communication, commercial business , marketing, instruction, media-messaging, evangelism, publication, reports and announcements, planning and analysis, management, manufacturing, manipulation, handcraft, apprenticeship, clinical practice, and cooperative work in cohort, entourage, ensemble performers, or team environments.

For maximum results, Budha must occupy a supportive angle vis-a-vis Mahadashapathi Chandra, and Professor Budha-Margara should possess other strengths via bhava rulership, razi, companion graha, drizti, inter alia.

Evaluate the placements of Ketu.

Consider the rashi + bhava owned and occupied + the angle from the mahadasha-pathi to the bhukti-pati + incoming-outgoing graha-drishti + current gochara transits + age of the native.

  8. Ketu-Vrizchika
  9. Ketu-Dhanuzya
  10. Ketu-Makara
  11. Ketu-Kumbha
  12. Ketu-Meena

Main effects of Chandra-Ketu bhukti are determined by the angle between Chandra and Ketu, karaka agency of " trustbuster" Ketu, Ketu 's bhava, rashi, incoming drishti, current transits, and the age of the native.

Generally, Vimshottari periods of Professor Ketu are scheduled for the purpose of release and forgiveness. The substance, idea, person, relationship, entity, or social role that is surrendered during the Ketu period is by definition spiritually unnecessary. It has outlived its usefulness and it has lost its vitality Maintaining this enervated phenomenon (whatever it is) is costing too much energy within the life system. Thus it is scheduled for release at the appointed time.

Examples of things to be released include experiences from other lives which have expired in their relevance to the current life, outdated relationships that no longer match the authentic life-force energy of the native, parts of the body that may be holding genetic memories that are scheduled for release (hair, teeth, appendix, sometimes other limbs or organs) and other similar scenarios.

Professor Ketu is Rahu's dried and lifeless tail which flutters in the ethers like a flag in the wind. Therefore Ketu periods are often associated with the cutting-off of some desiccated appendage. Along with Professor Mangala, Ketu is the co-ruler of transformative randhra-bhava-8. After releasing the unnecessary form, one often begins a path toward rejuvenation.


Ketu is not desired by Rahu. Feelings of emptiness and rejection.

Before fully realizing that the Desired One no longer matches the authentic spiritual body, Ketu periods may produce a vain hope for connection with an unavailable or inappropriate person, social role, idea, or object. Before the realization of the need to release the attachment, even knowing that the desire is lifeless, one may experience the illusion of connection which dissipates into fantasy, numbness, or distraction. Desires are dispersed into "echo" awareness that one is not desired by the object of affection. This is merely an echo of one's own higher consciousness signaling that this Object is no longer suitably connected to oneself * although in other lives and other realities the Object may have been a vital companion.

The barest vestige of a faded connection

Professor Ketu often induces a feeling of attempted reconnection with a person, place, thing, or idea that was significant in a previous life or in a distant phase of the present life. However, the attachment is vestigial, no longer part of the vital script of the true present identity. Thus, connection is often unsustainable for reasons of spirit. The reasons of spirit often have more tangible echoes in reasons of social class attributes, reasons of knowledge lineage, reasons of ethnicity or race, reasons of doctrine, and other formal rationale. However the definitive reason for the "non-connection" experience of Ketu is that one sees the object of attachment in a distant mirror, as a mere reflection of an already completed script. The object, for its part, will generally not allow the native to make more than a temporary and superficial connection to itself.

Professor Ketu often induces a feeling feeling of attempted reconnection with a person, place, thing, or idea that was significant in a previous life or in a distant phase of the present life. However, the attachment is vestigial, no longer part of the vital script of the true present identity. Thus, connection is often unsustainable.


If Ketu occupies a dushthamsha (bhava 6-8-12) there is potential signification for disruption or dismemberment. The outcome may occur in a wide range of patterns, including

  • physical (loss of limb or organ)

  • social (divorce, broken trust, disappointed expectations)
  • mental derangement(scattering of coherent thought)
  • financial disintegration (dispersal of collected assets)

and other possible expressions depending of the characteristics of the Ruler of Ketu.


Marriage

Professor Ketu is teaching a curriculum that focuses upon topics of impermanence, severance, amputation, abandonment, wandering, windiness, disemburdenment, and surrender. Naturally Ketu periods support psycho-spiritual opening of awareness and ego-dissolving projects.

Normally, the purpose of marriage is to establish a permanent and fruitful bond of mutual trust. Therefore marriage avowal during Ketu periods is rare and unusual. A marriage ceremony performed during Ketu bhukti may remain unconsummated. The spouse disappears either literally or figuratively, or the behavior of the spouse is exceptionally eccentric. Much depends on Ketu's ruler and upon any graha which may share a rashi with Professor Ketu.


Maraka Agency for Professor * Exit Opening for fleshdeath

When Ketu is ruled by a graha which itself rules bhava-2 or bhava-7, Professor Ketu becomes a potential marana-karaka who gives teachings upon the subject of saturation (2) and balanced completion of the contract (7).

Ketu also has, independent of His planetary ruler, the individual chidra-karaka agency of a beheader, cord-cutter, incisor, shredder, slicer, and amputator.

Therefore Ketu periods always carry the potential scatter the material-world forms. Those "left behind" may perceive Ketu's molecular dispersal as a physical death.


  • POTUS-18 Civil War 1822-1885 Ulysses S. Grant left his body during his Chandra-Ketu period (age 63). Due to Mangala-yuti-Ketu, Ketu gives the effect of maraka rules-7 Mangala.

Leadership Duties, Public Respect, and Professional Recognition

When Zukra rules the 7th or 10th radical bhava or10th navamsha or 10th-from-Chandra , Professor Bhrigu carries the potential to elevate the native into socially recognized positions of leadership duty associated with match-making, bargains, agreements, trusts, and contracts. For maximum results, Zukra should possess other strengths via bhava rulership, razi, companion graha, drizti, inter alia.


Marriage

Any Zukra period during any mahadasha is a common and beneficial time to join the partner in a marriage contract.

chidra-dasha = Final Bhukti of the 10-year Chandra mahadasha

The final bhukti requires return of unusable energies, cutting-off, severance, release, forgiveness


chidra-dasha = "Final Exam"

Main effects of Chandra-Surya bhukti are determined by the angle between Chandra and Surya, karaka agency of Surya , Surya's bhava + rashi, incoming-and-outgoing drishti, current transits, and the age of the native.

Chandra likes Surya as a close Friend;

Surya sees Chandra as a Friend as well. Since Chandra and Surya are mutually friendly, periods of Sun-Moon and Moon-Sun have no inherent problems.

Naturally, problems may arise if Surya rules a dushthamsha from Chandra.

Male figures, particularly Father and Father-figures, play prominent roles in the life drama whenever Surya commandeers the script. The politics of rights and entitlements, as well as matters of genius, gaming, and celebrity, come briefly to prominence.


Easier angles

  • Surya-Chandra enjoy a 5-9 angle
  • Simha lagna Surya lagnesha
  • Dhanuzya lagna Surya = dharmapathi
  • Surya atmakaraka

More challenging angles

Career auspice:

  • If Surya is well disposed and He rules the 10th navamsha or the 10th radical bhava, professional recognition or promotion to a higher rank may be expected

Leadership Duties, Public Respect, and Professional Recognition

When Surya rules the 7th or 10th radical bhava or10th navamsha or 10th-from-Chandra, Professor Suraja carries the potential to elevate the native into socially recognized positions of leadership duty associated with politics, celebrity, charisma, egocentricity, royalty, brilliance, entertainment, game-playing, literary and theatrical creativity. Promotion and obtainment of professional portfolio may be expected.

For maximum results, Surya must occupy a supportive angle vis-a-vis Mahadashapathi Chandra, and Surya should possess other strengths via bhava rulership, razi, companion graha, drizti, inter alia.

The closure-and-completion signification of the chidra-dasha does not alter the benefits of public honors bestowed, Yet the promotion in rank that may be obtained during this final bhukti may signify the end of a long period of accomplishment rather than the beginning of a new era of public responsibilities.

Typically the titles bestowed are honorific and summative in nature rather than formative for career development or building a foundation for the next period. However if Mangala ruler of the subsequent mahadasha is particularly strong, then the governance entitlem

Special considerations for Rank-and-Status Raise during the chidra-dasha

The closure-and-completion signification of the chidra-dasha does not alter the benefits of public honors bestowed during the chidra-dasha. Yet the promotion in rank that may be obtained during this final bhukti may signify the end of a period of respected accomplishments rather than the beginning of a new era of public responsibilities.

Typically the titles bestowed during a chidra-dasha social promotion are honorific and summative in nature rather than formative toward the next phase career development. Nevertheless if Professor Angarika is materially strong , the entitlement or authority received even at this time of forgiveness and conclusion may carry forward into the subsequent Mahadasha of Mangala.


Marriage

Any Surya period during any mahadasha may support ceremonial marriage, if Surya rules either the navamsha-1 or the navamsha-7 AND there occurs a suitable transit of Rahu-Ketu contacting of the primary axes of the nativity. Marriage during a Surya period may signify a uniquely creative, politically or theatrically intelligent mate, gifting in social entertaining and community linkage, who is frequently half of a political couple.


Maraka Agency for Professor Surya * Exit Opening for fleshdeath

When Surya rules bhava-2 or bhava-7, Professor Surya may becomes a potential marana-karaka who gives teachings upon the subject of saturation (2) and balanced completion of the contract (7).

For Karkata lagna or Kumbha lagna, maraka potential is enhanced if Surya occupies bhava-2 or Surya occupies bhava-7.

  • the final, separative, pulverizing chidra-dasha ("ashes to ashes, dust to dust") tends to bring an end to attachments.

  • Dasha sandhi during the final year of Surya-bhukti gains additional maraka influence of death-and-rebirth agent Mangala .

  • For Karkata lagna or Kumbha lagna, Chandra-Simha bhukti of may signal the"final accomplishment".

However as always the agency of any potential makara is much constrained by the overall pattern of longevity in the nativity, including the nature of randhrasthana counted from radical lagna and 8th-from-Chandra . Do not assume that Chandra-Surya bhukti will be lethal unless the native has reached the actuarially normal age range for permission to exit.


BPHS view

According to BPHS Chandra Dasha, there are only two professor who can kill during Chandra Mahadasha: Guru when He is serving the role of maraka rules-2 and maraka rules-7 and Zukra when he is serving in the rolesof maraka rules-2 or maraka rules-7.


Dasha Sandhi

The dasha sandhi "gear shift" transition zone between the end of Chandra mahadasha and the beginning of Mangala Mahadashalasts for approximately 1.5 years.

The final 9 months (approximately) of Chandra Mahadasha, including the entire Surya bhukti, becomes increasingly influenced by energetic, forward moving Mangala. Generally there is little of the usual quietude and need to forgive deeply which normally accompanies the chidra-dasha.

Kuja's thrusting energy coordinates favorably with confident, self-directed Solo Surya, to produce a time if not quite of new beginnings then of vigorous preparations for the burst of new life which emerges with great vitality at the onset of Mangala Mahadasha.

Depending on Surya's characteristics, one may apprehend the gradual onset of Mangala Mahadasha as a burst of stress-relieving freedom from the heavy emotions of Chandra, including guilt and grief. Or, if Surya is weak, one may note the increasing rapid withdrawal of the stable, steady, protective routines of the fading Chandra Mahadasha with a wistful nostalgia, pining for the old cocoon.

Whatever Soma's emotional perception of the end of this very rhythmic, predictable phase of life, whether sadness or celebration, Surya bhukti signals the conclusion of a 10-year reign of deep rootedness in the cultural habits of one's people.

These final six months are bright, independent, and creative, with the promise of much heightened physical vitality soon arriving in the new era of Mangala.

Primary active agents during Chandra periods =

  • Mother, matriarchy, caretakers and nurturers, home owners and homeland defenders, patriotic actions and feelings, shelters and security

  • schools and schoolteachers, folkways, local folk customs and cultural norms and belongingness culture (including ethnic language"mother tongue"and folk religion)

  • vehicles including boats and airplanes,

  • ocean, tidal estuary, marine and sea-coast environments,

  • female energy and female bodies, including mammalian animals

  • The breasts, lymph and liquids in the body

  • watery things, rain, drinking

12th-from-Chandra = challenging angle During Vimshottari periods of Chandra, whether the 10-years of mahadasha or more brief bhukti sections, the bhava which occupies 12th-from Chandra may become problematic.

  • Problematic = recurring problems which may be increasingly well-defined but seem to be embedded organically into the environment.

12th-from-Chandra drains the nutrient from the astral body. Matters of this bhava are exhausting. Other factors in the nativity may oblige the native to have considerable transactions involving this bhava, but the obligation to deal with it does not reduce the draining effect.

During the sub-period of the lord of the bhava which occupies 12th-from Chandra, look to the significations of this bhava and expect some notable challenges involving the agents of this bhava.

Example,

  • USA Civil Rights 1929-1968 Rev. Martin Luther King the great leader of African-American non-violent social reform in the USA = Surya-yuti-Budha very prominently placed in radix 12th-from-Chandra = 7th from Karkata lagna.

  • Shani = advising, counseling rules-7 + randhresha-8 . During Shani mahadasha his age 4.5-23.5, King developed; diplomatic capabilities (7) and social leadership (7 =10th from 10th) . This project was much assisted by the presence of Surya and Budha-Makara -7. Shani rules Chandra + Surya-yuti-Budha + Zukra, giving Shani much personality material to work with during the foundational, school-and-college Shani Mahadasha.

  • Shani = lord of 12th-from-Chandra -8. Shani rules career-7th from Karkata radical lagna. He simply had to deal with (7) the emotional exhaustion caused by his constant bargaining with the agents of 12th-from-Chandra: these were the National Government authorities (Makara).

  • He was obliged -- despite the work being inherently tiring and frustrating (12th from) -- to establish an emotional basis for public recognition (Makara, 7, Surya) during the Shani mahadasha.

  • The draining, dissolving effect of 12th-from-Chandra was simply"part of the total package" of effects associated with a 19-year reign of hard-working Shani.

FEELINGS LIKE CLOUDS

Confusion Arises as Wisdom: Gampopa's Heart Advice on the Path of Mahamudra

by Ringu Tulku, p. 122

"Whatever arises in our mind - whether it's a thought, an emotion, a sensation, or a perception - is the arising of co-emergent wisdom. It is the radiation of the mind's emptiness and clarity.

Every arising is a temporary arising - one thought comes and goes, then another thought comes and goes. All our thoughts and emotions just appear and disappear.

This is very important, because we usually grasp at whatever occurs. For instance, when sadness arises, we hold on to this feeling and think, "I am so sad, I am so depressed.”

But from the Mahamudra point of view, what has happened? A feeling has arisen in the mind, like a cloud. Like a cloud, it appears and then it disappears, and that's all there is to it.

This time it is sadness arising, the next time it may be happiness, the next time it may be anger, and later it may be kindness. All sorts of things arise, like wildflowers in a spring meadow.

All sorts of flowers grow; all sorts of thoughts and emotions arise. They are all okay; they're nothing special. When we understand what our thoughts and feelings are, and we experience them in this way, we are able to let them come and let them go.
