Puja for Zukra Mahadasha

saratheswathee_sinhala.jpg

A 20-year devotion to Laxmi-Sarasvati-Parvati will support the highest aspirations of Zukra Mahadasha.

  • Gyana intellectual-analytical: primary * worth-ship * worship of Sarasvati
  • Bhakti emotional -psycho-spiritual: primary * worth-ship * worship of Parvati
  • Karma material-practical-sensual: primary * worth-ship * worship of Laxmi

These three aspects of feminine civilization cannot be permanently separated but there is usually one aspect which is the most attractive (Zukra) to the native. Feel free to develop all three according to your tastes!

The 20-year puja should be understood not as idolatry of some external deity.

Rather it is a practice of acknowledgment and deepening of one's own internal quest for knowledge, pleasure, storage, balance, satisfaction, and union with Other.

Zukra-Zukra swabhukti = the longest individual bhukti of the entire 120 year Vimshottari Dasha.

During the preceding Ketu mahadasha, the attention was focused on distantly visible, external objects (Rahu) which falsely promised the fulfillment of permanent union but which in fact were consistently evasive and disconnected throughout the Ketu era.

Now, Ketu's relentless 7-year narrative of wandering and disconnection is beginning to fade from consciousness. It is time to allow the past to become the past.

Zukra Mahadasha tends to produce 20 years of financial, diplomatic, agreement-seeking, and musical, artistic, designing and balancing activities

When Zukra is well-placed, the three-year-long period of Zukra-Zukra may initiate new social-material relationships that will continue to unfold in nine unique bhukti experiences.

If Zukra yuti additional graha, the nature of those companion graha will contribute to the agreeable circumstances which favor pleasurable, harmonious, financial well-being.

Similarly, incoming drishti to Zukra influences the outcomes of the swabhukti.

If Zukra rules the nakshatra of the radical lagna, or the Nakshatra of Chandra , or if Zukra is lagnesha or Zukra rules Chandra's rashi, the swabhukti may elicit the physical or emotional values of those placements.

In a year or so when dasha sandhi is completed, you will start to feel quite differently. Ketu's narrative of unfulfilled yearning for union with Rahu-Other will subside, and Zukra's sensual materialism and social grace will arise. Give yourself permission to relax without demanding material results while you complete the dasha sandhi.

Others begin to look less like Ketu's intensely desired but utterly unobtainable partner Rahu, and more like mirrors of the Self as are human partners in the realm of Zukra the Sweet.

But during the first two years of Zukra Mahadasha, the dasha sandhi is still in effect and there is no trustworthy evidence of this impending change. It would be easy to become disheartened if no improvement is seen in the first two years.

However, Zukra forecasts materialization of the instinct to partner. The emptiness of Ketu, the apathy and dissolution of endless longing, will soon recede into memory.

Now Ketu's dissolving delusions have withdrawn into the background and material-plane human partnership (Zukra) becomes viable. It is time to abandon Ketu's deeply familiar routine of wandering from one delusory attachment to the next, sodden with apathy and exhausted by endless grief.

Unlike discontented ashes-to-ashes, dust-to-dust nebulizer Ketu, whose time has passed, Professor Zukra is happy to operate here on the Earth plane. Zukra looks forward to bringing the joy of treasury and sensual satisfaction via five-senses pleasures.

If one is not yet married, the Zukra-Zukra swabhukti is a very auspicious time to declare the marriage vow.

Zukra-Zukra period endures for 3 years 5 months but it is not at all monolithic in nature.

Because Zukra Mahadasha's bhukti periods are very long-lasting, detailed predictions should be based on the pratyanatardasha = tertiary periods.

For example,

  • during Zukra-Zukra-Guru period, Guru's significations will be distinctively strong and Guru defines a period of several months duration.

  • by extreme contrast, during Surya mahadasha, the quite short Surya-Surya-Guru era = so short that Professor Guru 's influence will not be felt too much unless simultaneously there would be a very strong Guru transit or some other reinforcement.

All of the general karaka behaviors of Zukra are to be expected. Strongly featured are: contractual relationships, bargaining and negotiations, architectural and social arrangements, decoration and design, yoga and balance, graciousness and harmony, marriage-type avowed partnerships and unions, sensual pleasure and luxury, accumulation of material values, and women in every aspect of life such as sister, aunt, female co-worker, female teachers, boss etc. (except the mother, who is Chandra) .

Should Zukra have additional strengths such as yogakaraka, atmakaraka, lagnesha, lord of Swamsha, lord of Chandra's navamsha, lord of the nakshatra of the radical lagna or lord of the Nakshatra of Chandra , lord of the 10th navamsha (career) and other strengths.

  • During the Zukra Mahadasha one wants to be in harmonious and mutually appreciative relationship.

  • Zukra wants to feel luxuriant and financially privileged, in harmonious agreement, a maker of trusts, contracts and alliances, a trader and collector of beautiful things.

Professor Zukra = kalatra-karaka. If marriage is desired, and there occurs a suitable transit of Rahu-Ketu to one of the required axes of the nativity, Zukra swabhukti being the advent of a new life era focused upon partnership, may signal the timing of ceremonial marriage.


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


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.

  • POTUS-33 Trial and Hope 1884-1972 Harry Truman completed his presidential duties in Zukra-Zukra swabhukti, and thus ended his public career, in 1952. After seven years of crucial service to the nation in the roles of USA President and Commander in Chief, Truman returned to private life. Zukra rules 1-identity and 8-obscurity; in addition, Truman has Thula-Chandra so that Zukra does the same job from the Chandra lagna. Shani-8 initially triggered a state of penury. By age 69, Truman was nearly impoverished. In 1952, there was no provision for pensioning of former presidents. It had never been necessary in 175 years since the founding of USA, because all previous POTUS had been landowners, businessmen, earned from their memoirs (Grant) or had died on the job. Truman and his wife Bess lived in near-poverty for several years until Zukra-Surya period, Surya rules 11-income. At that point, an embarrassed USA Congress established a pension fund (11) for ex-presidents, and Truman then earned a retirement income until his death age 88 during Surya-Rahu period.


Marriage

Any Zukra period during any mahadasha is a common and beneficial time to join the partner in a marriage contract. The marriage-making signification of the Zukra-Zukra swabhukti is exceptionally strong. Because this harmony-seeking, trust-expecting period endures for three years, even nativities with challenging marriage configurations may be able to secure a marriage within the Zukra-Zukra swabhukti.

  • Gitanjali 1861-1941 Rabindranath Tagore-Thakur was married during Zukra-Zukra swabhukti to Mrinalini Devi in 1883; his age 22, her age 10

  • UK-Queen 1926- Elizabeth-2 * married UK-Prince Consort 1921- Philip Mountbatten on 20-Nov-1947 during her Zukra-Zukra swabhukti. (her age 21).

  • Calif-Gov-pair 1955- journalist Maria O. Shriver married Calif-Gov 1947- Terminator Arnold Schwarzenegger on 26-April-1986 * Zukra-Zukra swabhukti * samchara Rahu-Ketu via Mesha-Thula contact navamsha Chandra

  • USA-Congress 1943- Newt Gingrich on 18-June-1962 which was the day after his 19th birthday, Mr. Gingrich married his high-school geometry teacher. Typical of his Karkata lagna, his bride was seven years elder. samchara Rahu-Ketu via Karkata-Makara.


Maraka Agency for Professor Zukra * Exit Opening for fleshdeath

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

Zukra as the ruler of both 2 and 7 is an empowered maraka as counted from the Mesha lagna.

  • Cuba-Dictator 1926-2016 Fidel Castro left his fleshbody on 25-Nov-2016 (age 90) * Zukra-Zukra swabhukti * Zukra rules maraka-7

Measured from Vrizchika lagna, Zukra obtains maraka empowerment as ruler of jaya-bhava-7.

  • Totem and Taboo 1856-1939 neurologist Sigmund Freud 23-Sept-1939 fleshdeath (age 83)* Zukra-Zukra swabhukti * Zukra maraka rules-7

  • POTUS-34 Interstate Highways 1890-1969 Dwight D. Eisenhower *28-Mar-1969 fleshdeath (age 78) * Zukra-Zukra swabhukti * Zukra rules maraka-7

Measured from Kanya lagna, Zukra obtains maraka empowerment as ruler of dhana-bhava-2.

Zukra and Surya are mutually adversarial. Zukra favors partnership, pairing, parity, and participation whilst Surya is egocentric, the dramatic center of attention, and radiantly solo.

Naturally Surya's bhava determines the manifestation of this bhukti, but overall the arrival of a significant male figure and hot, bright, top-of-the-mountain locations are featured.

There may be an unresolvable conflict or disjunction between cool blue Zukra's mandate for investment in partnership versus brilliant Surya's independent-minded, willful self-assertiveness.

If marriage is desired and Surya rules navamsha 1 or 7, despite Ravi's enemy role with Zukra, the Zukra-Surya period can bring marriage especially to a highly self-confident and independent partner.


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

  • Silly Love Songs 1942- Beatle Paul McCartney acquired two children in 1969during Zukra-Chandra perio: eldest daughter by adoption and bio-daughter. Chandra rules putrabhava-5 and Chandra-swakshetra.


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 Zukra, and Surya should possess other strengths via bhava rulership, razi, companion graha, drizti, inter alia.


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 one of the primary axes of the nativity.

Marriage during a Surya period may signify a uniquely creative, regal, politically or theatrically intelligent mate, gifted in social entertaining and community linkage, who is frequently one-half of a political couple.

  • Miracle Roses 1207-1231 St. Elizabeth of Hungary married Louis IV, Landgrave of Thuringia, in the year 1221 when she turned age-14. Surya rules 7th navamsha, and her husband was a king.

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 Brightly Burning Surya = maraka rules-2

For Kumbha lagna, Professor Surya = maraka rules-7

General characteristics of any 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.

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. Yet the outcome depends significantly upon the angle between chidra-karaka Ketu agent of surrender to impermanence and matrikaraka Chandra agent of ancestral deep roots. However any angle may produce heightened feelings of patriotism, self-defense, attachment to parents, love of the land, need for comfortable rhythms and routines, need for security.

Any nativity may 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.

In Ketu-Chandra period, Chandra seeks shelter from sudden changes and insecurity along the pilgrim's wandering path.

A time 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.


Typical relationship between Chandra and Zukra

Although Professor Chandra has no enemies, Zukra is adversarial toward Chandra. Zukra favors partnership, pairing, parity, and equal participation whilst Somana is parental, caretaking, protective and nourishing but not equal as a parent or schoolteacher is surely not the equal of the child.

Naturally Chandra's bhava determines the manifestation of this bhukti, but overall the arrival of a significant mother-teacher figure and cool, watery, coastal and agricultural locations are featured.

There may be some disjunction between cool blue Zukra's mandate for equity in partnership versus parental Somana's need to control the emotional flow of relationships and in general to maintain high feeling sensitivity with a tendency to emotionalize all experiences.


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


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 must occupy a supportive angle vis-a-vis Mahadashapathi Zukra, and Professor Somana 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.

  • POTUS-pair-42 + USA Secy State 1947- Hillary Clinton Nov-2000 * elected USA Senator from NY * Zukra-Chandra period * Chandra karmesha-10


Marriage

Any Chandra period during any mahadasha may signal the timing of ceremonial wedding * formalization of alliance, if Professor 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 weddings especially indicate matri-karaka Chandra qualities in the marital union, including a protective, sheltering, parental style of relating to the spouse, emotionally sensitive and responsive behaviors, a caretaker, nourisher, guardian, defender, and patriot.

  • POTUS-31 Challenge to Liberty 1874-1964 Herbert Hoover married Lou Henry Hoover on 10-Feb-1899 * Zukra-Chandra period * Chandra rules navamsha-1 * samchara R-K Dhanuzya-Mithunaya * contact navamsha R-K

Maraka Agency for Professor * Exit Opening for fleshdeath

When Chandra rules bhava-2 or bhava-7, Professor Somama 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.

  • During Zukra-Chandra period, where Chandra rules bhava-2 and Chandra yuti Guru maraka rules-7, author of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings 1892-1973 J.R.R. Tolkien left his body at the age of 82

Zukra and Mangala are neutral toward each other. Zukra favors partnership, pairing, parity, and equal participation on the sensual, wealth-building material level whilst Mangala is sexual, active, pursuing, and athletic. These two sets of behaviors are compatible within marriage and also within many types of business partnership.

Naturally Mangala's bhava determines the manifestation of this bhukti, but overall the arrival of a significant competitor, high-energy, athletic or warrior-figure and hot, arid locations are featured. The emphasis is on muscular movement, sexual activity, or sport.

There may be some disjunction between cool blue Zukra's mandate for equity in partnership versus hot, blood-red competitive, sometimes dominating Mangala's drive to engage in continuous activity. Zukra tends to prefer a pattern of accumulating and appreciating sensual pleasures whereas Mangala is single-mindedly moving always in pursuit of some physical goal.


A life narrative wherein Mangala-Mesha starts a Big Fight during Mangala bhukti:

  • During his Zukra-Mangala period (age 57, R-K return) de Mundi Systemate 1642-1726 Isaac Newton launched a bitter attack against his adversary Gottlieb Leibniz regarding who indeed had invented the calculus. Friends of both scholars had asked them to stop this long-lasting diatribe, but Newton apparently could not stop heckling Leibniz. The accusations (6) sullied the dignity of both parties, and left the intellectual legacy of Leibniz in permanent disrepute. 6th-from-Chandra = bhava-10 Vrizchika (reputation) with Mangala-Mesha furthermore in 6th-from-10th (bhava-3 writing) suggesting that matters of public reputation and respect were especially contentious and even vicious for Newton. As a gay man was constantly heckled by his adversaries especially his mother's husbands, Newton was apparently very sensitive on the point.

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-type 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 Zukra, 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.

Sensual and materialistic Zukra naturally seeks the pleasures of harmonious, proportionate, and mutually appreciative relationship.

  • Zukra prefers a state of luxurious wealth, guaranteed via legal terms of agreement

  • Zukra = a maker of contracts and alliances , a trader and collector of beautiful things.

  • Zukra-Rahu period introduce Rahu-type agents (usually partners in business or marriage) who promise gracious lifestyles involving a balance of opposites and equal contributions to the fund of shared wealth.

  • One may indeed self-elevate into the higher rank and its privileges while in company of the Rahu agent(s).

However toward the end of the Zukra-Rahu bhukti it may become more obvious that most of the Rahu agent's claims are mimicking one's own sensually indulgent and acquisitive nature.

Rahu is agreeable during Zukra Mahadasha but His actions are often exotic, irregular or fraudulent in regard to contracts, vows, trusts, promises, deals and agreements.


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.

Professor 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 reach their respective goals through agency of the union, Rahu-timed marriages may endure. Longevity of the marriage depends upon the marriage profile elements in both nativities, particularly the 7th-from-Chandra.

Maraka Agency for Professor Rahu * Exit Opening for fleshdeath

When Rahu is ruled by OR yuti a graha which rules bhava-2 or bhava-7, Rahu obtains potential marana-karaka status. Professor Rahu becomes empowered to teach upon the subject of saturation (2) and balanced completion of the contract (7).

  • Aquero 1844-1879 St. Bernadette of Lourdes left her fleshbody on 16-Apr-1879 (age 35, tuberculosis of the bones) * Zukra-Rahu period * Surya-yuti-Rahu * Rahu gives effect of Surya maraka rules-7

Professor Rahuva can occasionally gain so much strength by association with a very strong ruler or co-tenant that by His own power He can "push the envelope" and move the native to their next step out-of-body.

Perhaps the strongest maraka empowerment for Rahu is the placement of Rahu-2

  • Miracle Roses 1207-1231 St. Elizabeth of Hungary departed her fleshbody on 17-Nov-1231 (age 24) during her Zukra-Rahu period. Rahu-Kumbha occupies bhava-2 thus Rahu gains additional strength in Kumbha rashi.

Decease of relatives

quotation from 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..."

Zukra and Guru are generally adversarial in their mutual goals and methods.

Zukra favors social partnership, pairing, parity, and equal participation on the sensual, wealth-building material level.

By contrast, Guru is philosophical not sensual, accumulates wisdom not material goods, and Guru favors the one-to-many relationship of teacher-to-students, not a one-to-one like Zukra's marriage or advising pairs.

These two sets of behaviors are largely incompatible within marriage and also within many types of business partnership. Guru does not have an equal partner and He is not much interested in material reality, being rather a philosopher savant.

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.


Events related to rulership and karaka-signification

Brihaspati's curricular emphasis is typically placed upon the development of wisdom and expressions of abundance and expansion.

Periods of Brihaspati the university-karaka provide likely time-periods in which 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.

Children

There may be some disjunction between cool blue Zukra's mandate for equity in partnership versus warm, golden Guru's procreative abundance. Often there is some conflict between the sensuality of marriage versus the children's demand for wise attention.

Guru bhukti of any mahadasha are naturally abundant 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 a Guru Bhukti, so long as samchara Rahu-Ketu are transiting via a key lagna.

Promotion and obtainment of professional portfolio may be expected.

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


Marriage

If marriage is desired and Guru rules navamsha 1 or 7, the Zukra-Guru period can bring marriage especially to a teacher-preacher, priest, professor or world traveler.

Any bhukti of Guru during any Mahadasha is generally favorable for biological or creative reproduction, so long as Guru and bhava-5 are reasonably well disposed. Marriage during Guru bhukti often brings a child very quickly within the same Guru bhukti.

Zukra and Shani are excellent friends. Zukra favors partnership, pairing, parity, and equal participation on the sensual, wealth-building material level while social-order Shani is also materialistic, structured, and much supportive of legal contracts such as marriage which regulate and organize society overall.

These two sets of behaviors are highly compatible within marriage and also within many types of business partnership.

Naturally Shani's bhava determines the manifestation of this bhukti, but overall the arrival of a significant elder, regulator, bureaucrat or holder of traditional authority can be expected (perhaps an entire society of them). Cold, dry, dark, scarcely nourishing locations are featured. The emphasis is on distribution of scarce resources and adherence to the law.

Generally there is a favorable outcome as cool blue Zukra's mandates equity in partnership while cold icy blue Shani mandates strict observance of the social law.

Zukra tends to prefer a pattern of accumulating and appreciating sensual pleasures whereas Shani is more concerned with physical survival and rigid class structure. Yet the two goals of large-scale group regulation and contractually balanced interpersonal marriages are quite compatible and those who respect both sets of rules usually receive social approval.

Shani niyama-karaka indicates that Shani-timed weddings (in any mahadasha) may be the consequence less of affection and more of social rules.

Shani bhukti ailments and worry, learning about limits and austerities

Subject: Re: Jyotisha Follow-up question regarding topic discussed in the reading

My follow-up question: How soon can I expect to feel better physically and mentally? As you know, I have a Simha radical lagna birth chart with Swati Moon in bhava-3. You said I'm in a Shani bhukti. Ouch! Everything hurts! Plus I worry constantly, and that alone is exhausting.

Thanks for your reply.

Namaste,

The Vimshottari Dasha timeline for your nativity shows that you are currently enduring a three-years-two-months Shani bhukti within the 20-year-long Zukra mahadasha.

Because Shani rules bhava-6 concerning imbalances and ailments (and you have graha located in 6 but not in 7), most occurrences of Shani bhukti periods can be expected to match 3rd-dimensional (real physical life) reality experience of ailment, accusations, animosities, disorder, persistently imbalanced conditions, and other aggrieved conditions.

The current Shani bhukti runs from 2015 until 2018.... There are nine mahadasha periods; some are short and some are long. The longer the mahadasha, the longer is each bhukti section of the mahadasha. It just so happens that Zukra controls the longest mahadasha (for you, from age 39 until age 59) and therefore the specific sub-section (bhukti) of the Zukra mahadasha that is controlled by the Shani Narrative is also extra-long (3 years 3 months).

Luckily you are older than 36 (the age of Shani's maturity), therefore you have the stamina and maturity to not only survive the restrictions, constant worrying about scarcity, and often the tediousness of a Shani mahadasha, but those older than 36 can often thrive during the otherwise oppressive Shani-narrative conditions. Just knowing that the English word 'worry' means 'to strangle' can lead an older person to chuckle with wisdom, realizing that one can by succumbing to negative thought patterns indeed strangle oneself!

Shani rewards sobriety, realism, neutrality, and social duty. However He generally will not reward (and may apply strict measures to) any of the narratives of Surya which can include individual intelligence, creativity, drama, amusements, and celebrity.

The older people become, the more they can appreciate the value of discipline and orderliness; therefore the easier (relatively) the reoccurring Shani bhukti periods tend to be.

Nevertheless, Shani's bhava rulership for the Simha nativity (yours) is extra demanding, since Shani rules not only the heavily dutiful partnership bhava-7 but also the adversarial and remedy-seeking bhava-6.

Optimal health is likely to suffer and this likely places a strain on relationships, and although there is usually no worry about long-term relationship endurance, shorter-term relationships may be challenging to sustain.

Typically, the causes of the ailments are not easily seen; yet once the cause is unveiled the Shani-type symptoms begin to recede (slowly of course -- this is Shani the Delayer at work).

The causes according to Jyotisha would be Shani-ish: various old resentments, betrayals, and other sources of bitterness (Shani is bitter) which overwhelm the healthy flexibility of life, inducing stiffness and brittleness, while a narrative of blame and frustration tends to circulate in the mental patterns.

The more compassionately one is able to locate and honor the old resentments, and the more complete one's acceptance of earlier deprivations as useful (if painful) learning experience, the gentler are the symptoms.

The purpose of Shani bhukti periods is to call one's attention to the intentional reality of limits and structures. When (if) one is able to re-visit the victim experience with more adult and neutral eyes, looking for evidence of a learning experience encapsulated within the suffering of exploitation or mistreatment, then Shani's narrative will be complete, and the present-time suffering will generally cease.

Meanwhile, Shani is a yogakaraka graha when measured from your Chandra-Thula, which suggests that you would not lose every iota of creativity and fun during Shani bhukti. Rather, via knowing your own healing rhythms (Chandra) you would find quieter habits and routines to accommodate the pinching limits of Shani while more restrained creative, intellectual development could continue.

The current Shani bhukti is approximately 2/3 completed, with 1/3 left to go. Since gochara (transiting) Shani is presently traveling via bhava-5 (Dhanuzya) related to the heart, and Shani is a planetary enemy of Surya your lagnesha, and Surya signifies the heart as well, quality Ayurvedic medical care with an emphasis on heart-health is always recommended.

Rahu has been transiting across your Simha lagna and He just now is crossing the end of Magha moving into Azlesa. In about a week from now, you should start to feel an intense hunger for privacy, for sleep, for meditation practices and dreamwork, and for living in distant worlds -- much more than normal, due to Rahu triggering a once-every-9-years 6/12 axis return WHILE Shani ruler of Rahu-6 is the bhukti-pathi.

The physical body will remain cranky but your psychic life can be expected to light up from Rahu's visit, which will reveal the phantom-like imagery of the ancient betrayals (not always from the current lifetime) that are triggering Shani's ailments.

When you shift into the Budha bhukti, because Budha rules bhava-3 and you have a cluster of graha in 3, there should be a gradual lifting of Shani's weight replaced by a burst of mental activity and engagement with siblings, neighbors, writing, and messaging.

Until then, Shani rewards patience and steady compassion for one's own (self-chosen) limitations.

In addition to the meditation and dreamwork clairsentient guidance activated by Rahu's 18-month-long visit to bhava-12, if you are interested in psychotherapy, that modality is also activated by the Rahu transit via bhava-12.

Psychotherapy does not have magical powers, but it can be a valuable tool for asking more targeted questions about the duty-buried grievances which motivate the Shani-ailments, and getting more insightful answers.

The purpose of every bhukti is to produce a pattern of experiences which develop self-knowledge. The intention during periods of Shani is not to "release" grievances but rather to accept and honor the learning experiences provided by the conflicts and mistreatments of yore. Shani is too rigid and stodgy to allow a smooth release. He resists change. However, He does reward realism, acceptance of what-is, maturity and patience.

Wishing you every happiness, healing from sorrow, guidance by inner light, and success in all of life's endeavors,

Sincerely, BPL

Zukra and Budha are good friends. Zukra favors partnership, pairing, parity, and equal participation on the sensual, wealth-building material level whilst communicative, team-working Budha is also materialistic, conversational, instructional, and sexual.

These two sets of behaviors are nicely compatible within marriage and also within many types of business partnership.

Naturally Budha's bhava determines the manifestation of this bhukti, but overall the arrival of a significant sibling, young person, student, report-writer, or media-messenger can be expected. Green, somewhat dry, quick-changing, commercial, youth-oriented locations are featured. The emphasis is on information transaction, planning, schedules, and discussions.

Generally there is a favorable outcome. Cool blue Zukra's mandates equity in partnership; while bright green Budha's mandate is evangelical, conversational, instructional, manual, and sexual. Budha rules the hands.

Zukra tends to prefer a pattern of accumulating and appreciating sensual pleasures whereas Budha is more concerned with talking, writing, and touching. The two agendas are quite compatible.

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.


Cut-cut-cut * release, unbind * divide, split, scaith

In the special case of Zukra Mahadasha final period of Ketu, the * cutting * emphasis of * chidra-dasha * is doubled by the additional chidra-karaka effects of Ketu the Abandoner.

  • Handsome, athletic, educated, financially privileged Superman 1952-2004 tetraplegia Christopher Reeve endured the unbearably tragic loss of muscle control caused by a terrible horse accident. Hitting a divider-fence at just the right angle with just the right force severed (Ketu) his spinal cord. Zukra-Ketu period.

chidrakaraka Ketu may signal surrender, dispersal, walking away, abandonment of a relationship. However Ketu is also a powerful spiritualizing agent.

Despite the presence of partners and potential partners, considerable difficulty experienced in making a successful connection. Apathy and ennui on the part of the native. A feeling of lost cause, unworkable, mismatch. Yet Professor Ketu instills a subtext of need to connect to that exciting Rahu-persona who is in the environment.

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.

The material-social relationship may survive in skeleton form, while the spiritually conscious intent retreats into the nebulous status of dissociation from social-validation seeking ego-membrane.

Since both Zukra and Ketu are enemies of Surya who is karaka for ego-based identity, the usual outcome of Zukra-Ketu is retreat - at a material level *or* at a psycho-spiritual level -- from the ego-based identity that was maintained during the previous 18 years.

The spirit is no longer concerned with that portion of the Self definition which contained the socially legitimating tag "I am the partner of _________." One may hail the call of wandering winds. Life's "next step" may seem a bit foggy.

However if the subsequent mahadasha pati Surya is strong, recovery from the listlessness of vaporous Ketu may be very quick.

Surya restores the ego-brilliance and pumps bright energy into the aura. Masculine, creative, confident, dramatic figures arrive to enact Ravi's script. Father and charismatic males have central roles.


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.

The purpose of marriage is normally 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, or possibly the native, 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.

  • At the age of 17, Mad Monk 1869-1916 Romanov Grigori Rasputin was married according to the rituals of his non-literate agricultural village culture during Zukra-Ketu period while samchara Rahu-Ketu via Simha-Kumbha contact navamsha R-K. Rasputin's marriage featured Ketu-style open boundaries. While he always returned to his peasant home to contribute his labor for the collective harvest, and he gave his wife numerous children on this pattern, Rasputin was a lifelong highly promiscuous wanderer who stayed in monasteries and in the homes of others while he conducted popular ecstatic piety cults (Ketu out-of-body). Although socially irregular, his activities brought wealth to his village and Rasputin never divorced.

  • VPOTUS Climate Change 1948- Al Gore married his high-school sweetheart VPOTUS-pair Prohibited Music 1948- Tipper Gore during his Zukra-Ketu chidradasha, in March-1970 (his age 22). The young couple wanted to marry before he "shipped out" (Ketu) for military service in the Vietnam War. The ceremony was held quickly; but the public marriage endured for 40 years until the end of Gore's political career (Ketu-5 politics).


Maraka Agency for Professor Ketu * 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, amputator, un-gluer, disconnector, disperser, pulverizer, nebulizer, dissolver of third-dimensional time-space coherent form.

Therefore Ketu periods always carry the potential to scatter the material-world forms. Those left behind may perceive Ketu's molecular dispersal as a physical death. However folks who exit during this Zukra-Ketu period are typically aware of the dissolution of form in context of persistence of spirit.

  • Puttaparthy 1926-2011 Satya Sai Baba left his body on 24-April-2011 (age 85) during the closure-and-forgiveness * Zukra-Ketu chidra-dasha

Decease of relatives and release of contractual obligations is a frequent occurrence during the Surrender period of Ketu chidradasha.
