Meena nativities

Special challenges and 'atypical' results during periods of Surya

When Chandra-occupies-Meena * Vimshottari Periods of Surya of fer a challenge to remedy emotional imbalances because the ruler of 6th-from-Meena = Professor Surya

Also for the Meena lagna nativity, Surya becomes lord of the maha-dusthamsha satkona-6 suggesting environments defined by conflict and disagreement either internal (physical-emotional) or external (social-material).

  • Periods of Surya may be confident and glorious in many ways, yet for the Meena nativity, an undertow of disagreement, distrust, and disharmony may pollute the environment and relationships with ego-centric personalities are particularly stressful. Health problems of a physical-social nature (for the Meena radical lagna) or having an emotional basis (from the Meena Chandra lagna) may disturb the balance of the period.

  • Nonetheless if Surya is strong in the kundali there can be beneficial results in matters other than health and relationships. For example Surya-Simha-10 can bring public recognition for brilliant career activities, even while marital or health issues may erode the overall happiness.

For the Kanya lagna or Kanya Chandra nativity, Surya becomes lord of vyayasthana-12, a bhava of quiet solitude and isolation.

The dissolution of identity may occur rather than the expected Surya ego-radiance and confidence; the native often lives in a royal world of one's own imaginative making, a legend in one's own mind, yet has much less effect upon the material world than expected.

  • Nevertheless even for Kanya lagna, the mahadasha of Surya may bring expressions of genius in clairvoyant inquiry, bright and confident meditational guidance and a certain type of spiritual showmanship, as well as high confidence to travel in distant lands.

Surya = Fire = Homa (fire sacrifice);

Focused regal (not governmental) authority

Burning of ego-membrane Impurities

Displays of Radiant Confidence and Self-Certainty

Can you take the heat?

During the six years of Surya Mahadasha, the native may become the celebrity focus of popular attention.

If Surya is disposed in such a way that the native naturally enjoys being in the limelight , the mahadasha of Ravi can be an entertaining and intelligent time.

  • Raag Khamaj 1920-2012 sitarist Ravi Shankar * bhratrupathi-3 Surya (ensembles, entourage, touring, younger siblings, cohort) in the brightly visible 10th-bhava yuti uttama-Zukra = exquisite music and dance. His mahadasha of Surya age 57-63 featured almost constant international touring in a cohort (3) of other gifted musicians -- most notably his younger friend My Sweet Lord 1943-2001 Beatle George Harrison.

If Surya is configured in such a way that excess attention upon the person and a regal lifestyle is not desirable, the six year period of Surya mahadasha could be less comfortable.

In either case, one must process, psychologically and socially, the hot self-confident masculine energy of Surya.

Male figures of every age, rank, and family relationship may play a dominant role during Surya periods.

One maintains a consistently high idealism throughout the six years. Insistence upon personal integrity and a positive self-image may sustain the native through any number of engagements with high-ego personalities during this time.

Faith in the divine presence is empowered through awareness of the divine spirit within .

Surya's natural portfolio includes all things 'Self'. Surya matches the vocabulary of"auto-", such as

  • authorship
  • authority
  • autocracy
  • autonomous
  • autocentric
  • authenticity
  • autobiography
  • auto-referential
Surya's enemy Zukra supervises human relationships; naturally, relationships are less favored during Surya periods, when the self-righteous instinct is being more developed.
  • One embarks upon the Surya/Surya bhukti with an agenda to receive attention and validate one's own authority.
The drama is being set up now , during the first three months. The stage properties are arranging themselves. One may not yet realize it, but there is a major theatrical event - actually, a series of nine episodes - getting ready to unfold on the stage of life. One may be at the center of this drama, consciously enacting one's autobiography.

Now is the earliest point of entry into center-stage of the drama. Often there are several related plots and subscripts, but the native is at the center of all of them. One embarks upon some variety of political or theatrical office, and increases the ego-certainty in the chosen environment (see below) according to the bhava-rashi. the script may call for a strong male (probably several of them) to gain prominence in one's life. His character accords with Surya's characteristics.

  • POTUS-pair-32 Learn by Living 1884-1962 Eleanor Roosevelt experienced the thrill of center-stage political brilliance in Nov-1928 during her Surya-Surya period * Surya karmapathi-10 * when her husband POTUS-32 Fireside Chats 1882-1945 Franklin D. Roosevelt won the role of Governor of New York State. His legs were already significantly disabled from polio contracted in 1921. She began to represent him at political and governance meetings, and while playing a center-stage role to work toward implementation of the liberal social policies that she favored. Yet her radical Surya-12 ensured that she was not seen to usurp his power, but rather to quietly operate in proxy.


Idealism

The range of idealism and potential empowerment through self-determined action is set by the characteristics of Surya's rashi, bhava, drishti etc.

  • politics of medicine or policing; etc.

  • Political and theatrical behavior is framed and driven by high ideals.

Surya Mahadasha is a six-year period focused upon self-realization through ability to channel Divine intelligence, charismatic performance of center-stage acts of genius, and individual empowerment within society.


Father

The subconscious relationship to father, step-father, grandfather, and other father-figures including male deities may rise into consciousness through a male agent.

Typically, over the period of six years , several male agents cross the stage of life.

Each specializes in one particularly difficult-but-eventually-enlightening aspect of the native 's relationship to one's own father.

Depending on the spread of the 9 graha, there can be as many as 9 agents who enter stage-left and exit stage-right according to the rotation of the 9 bhukti lords.

  • For a female, the male agents may be husband or a lover, boss or supervisor, business partner or professor, or some other authoritative role in which the male agent may dramatically express the traits of historic father-figures in one's life.

  • If the Surya period occurs early in the life path, the primary agent may be the fathers themselves; if the Surya period occurs at a more mature phase in life, it is more likely that a peer male (husband, boss, guru) may behave in ways similar to the original fathers.


Confidence or Lack of it

Men in general throw a bright light upon one's ego certainty.

The behavior of the male agentmay be easy or difficult for the native 's ego-membrane to accommodate, depending on the condition of Ravi.

  • If the ego-membrane is strong going in, Surya Mahadasha can be a period of tremendous validation for intelligence, spiritual certainty, and performance genius.

  • If Surya is weakened by various factors (hostile drishti, awkward relationship to other graha, uncomfortable rashi, etc.) then the admiration and centrality of position in the environment may be mixed with planned misalignments requiring realignment attention arising from lack of confidence.


High-power Surya

Surya is strong in rashi of friendly graha = Mangala, Chandra, and Guru

  • Surya = Fire = Homa (fire sacrifice) = Burning of Impurities

Surya well-disposed in swakshetra Simha may radiate the Divine Intelligence through individual personality. the native enjoys a central position in one's environment (see above by bhava, rashi) often of a regal nature orto the point of regal entitlement.

For these six years, Noblesse oblige may flow. One is highly attuned to human political behaviors. One becomes an exponent of personal truth - regardless of the interests of institutions (Shani). Partnership is happy only with those similarly privileged and attuned.

Surya-Meza emphasizes individual nobility and self-determination through competitive instinct. Some danger of selfish actions if Surya is not blessed with a supportive bhava. Extraordinary wins, outstanding heroism, remarkable individual achievements.

Balanced relationships (Zukra) however are not favored as the native is exceptionally focused on expressions of personal genius and temporarily less concerned with the interests of others.

Surya is neutrally placed in the Rashi of Budha.


Low-power Surya

Ravi's ability to channel divine intelligence through the bright light of individual reasoning is weakened in:

  • Thula (the interests of others)

  • Makara (large impersonally regulatedhierarchical organization)

  • Kumbha (large impersonally regulated laterally distributed organizations)

  • by drishti of a hostile graha = Shani or Zukra or (sometimes) Rahu

The mahadasha of an uncorrected nichhaor weakened Surya may be marked by expressions of self-interest which controvert the interests of society as a whole (Surya in a rashi of Shani) or excessive self-interestwhich wreaks havoc in partnerships (Surya uncorrected in Thula).

Low-power Surya indicates weakened confidence and the agency of cold, opaque, dishonest, shadowy, or unfaithful men.


Rashi qualities of Surya = subject to adjustment through significations of bhava and drishti.

Shani

The populist drishti of plebian Shani upon regal Surya imposes especially harsh constraints upon royal entitlements.

Drishti of Shani upon Surya may reduce personal glamour and easy privilege, but it also prevents selfish excess. Shani sub-period of Surya Mahadasha gets rather little sunshine.


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, Professor 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, politically or theatrically intelligent mate, gifting in social entertaining and community linkage, who is frequently one-half of a political couple.

  • POTUS-12 California Statehood 1784-1850 Zachary Taylor married in June-1810 (age 26). Guru-yuti-Rahu rules the navamsha. The marriage produced seven children.

Surya-Surya swabhukti being the advent of a new life era, such a marriage may particularly signal the beginning of a period of charisma, creativity independence, and self-direction.

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

  • Germinal 1840-1902 Emile Zola On 29-Sept-1902, Zola died of carbon monoxide poisoning caused by a stopped chimney. A roofer later admits to plugging the chimney for political reasons. * Mangala-Surya period * Surya politics

For Kumbha lagna, Professor Surya = maraka rules-7.

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

General characteristics of a Chandra period

An era of amplified feelings for home and homeland. One may seek residence near the watery shores, or shipbound. Retreat to safety and a secure routine. 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.

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 raja-karaka Surya agent of unique charisma 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 Surya-Chandra period, Chandra seeks shelter from sudden changes and insecurity via political and dramatic acts of artistic performance, gambling and gaming, royalty, celebrity, or self-importance.


Effects due to karaka empowerment or bhava rulership


Typical relationships between Surya and Chandra

gold_sun.gifSurya = hot, radiating, political, central, yang, masculine energy; Chandra = cool, reflective intuitive, yin, feminine.

Depending on the angle between the two luminaries within the radix and navamsha charts, this period typically expresses the psychic relationship between one's parents.

Regardless of one's current social gender, one may feel like the confident public-figure father, shining upon the gentler, weaker but more intuitive caring mother.

A protective, paternal, care-taking instinct underlies the activities determined by Chandra's radix bhava and rashi.


  • If Surya and Chandra are well-balanced, intuition complements and supplements reasoning power.

  • If the radix Surya/Chandra angle is unfavorable, expect some tension between faithful certainty and intuitive doubts.

  • The Surya-Chandra angle is definitive because it evokes the core productive-receptive polarity within the psychic personality. If Chandra occupies 8th-from Surya for example, a female figure enters who is at loggerheads with the male; she is an agent of the male's self-destruction (8th-from).


Leadership Duties, Public Respect, and Professional Recognition

When candescent 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 Surya, 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-2016 POTUS-45 election * Surya-Chandra period * Chandra karmesha-10

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.

gold_sun.gifSurya is divine intelligence channeling through the human capacity for acts of personal charisma and genius. Kuja is the animal body driven by instinctive responses to the environment. Kuja is human sexual pursuit and penetration; the killer instinct of the hunter and the warrior; and the competitive drive of military exercise and sport.

Surya and Kuja are excellent friends . Presuming a healthy angle between these two graha, the brief period of Surya/Kuja is vigorously physically active, self-validating, and highly individualized.


  • If Surya and Kuja are well-balanced, invigorating competitive action may complement and supplement the creative intelligence.

  • If the radix Surya/Kuja angle is unfavorable, expect some tension between the confident self-righteous may power of Surya vs. adversarial, warlike, or simple muscular animal action. However this period is usually favorable due to the fundamental friendship between the two graha.


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 Surya, 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.

gold_sun.gifDuring the Surya mahadasha one wants to be in the brilliant center of things. Glittering Ravi = celebrated, entertaining, illustrious, entitled .

Surya-Rahu period may bring typical Rahu -agents (usually males, but possibly strong-ego females) who promise spectacular, regal lifestyles involving dramatic success, creative fashionable amusements, fame, and political exposure.

One may indeed self-elevate to higher privilege while 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 ego-membrane mirroring mimicry.

Toward Surya the King, Professor Rahu is flattering but fraudulent.


Surya vs. Rahu = natural enemies.

Surya's divinely inspired creative intelligence (Vishnu) looks with contempt upon the vulgar desires of taboo-breaking Rahu.

Results of this period depend on the complex relationship between Professor Rahu, Rahu's ruler , any co-tenants with Rahu, and Surya.

Ravi-Rahu periods typically produce political and psychological tension between regard for Solipsistic Surya's kingdom of self-interest and Rahu's disregard for legitimate boundaries.

One's confident pursuit of intelligent self-expression is disrupted by an interloper's desire for illicit action. However barring challenging angle s, the native might experience the exhilaration of breaking social-control rules which Surya feels are in any case designed for the hoi-polloi. One may push the envelope a bit and have some fun at the expense of propriety.

  • Golf champion Tiger Woods : During Surya-Rahu period, Tiger's father-coach left his body. His father's death, as the ensuing scandal revealed, created permission for Mr. Woods to achieve an emotionally fueled level of self-indulgent sensuality. (Rahu in a rashi of empowered Zukra). The indulgent inclinations were already present via nichha-Chandra-yuti-Zukra -3 receiving parivartamsha of Mangala. Surya-Rahu bhukti simply released a Rahu-style torrent of entitlement -- specifically sensual entitlement due to Rahu-Thula-2. Rahu matures age 48. Mr. Woods was still in his 30's thus with his father gone, he lacked the judgement to manage the entitlements. Rahu started taboo-breaking troubles which ultimately impacted his marriage and career.

In a female nativity, this episode of the bhukti-drama may be acted out entirely by the primary male (Surya) agent.

Typically the agent is the father but also a father-doppelganger such as husband or father-imitating adult male companion, a fatherly guru, or even a male psychiatrist in a heavy pattern of psychological transference can all do the job of Roguish Rahu.


  • If Professor Surya and Professor Rahu are well-balanced, the excitement of desire can complement and supplement the self-validating intelligence.

  • Sometimes breaking overly restrictive cultural boundaries can open possibilities of greater freedom and more creative conditions in the kingdom.

However, if the radix Surya/Rahu angle is unfavorable, expect some Dramatic Tension between

  • the bright light of center-stage admiration (Ravi)

  • versus

  • the dark, smoky camouflage which Rahu casts over that Light in order to insinuate Himself into the center stage as a Pretender to the Throne.

There is usually a power struggle between

  • the Surya agent who considers himself the legitimate holder of central authority

  • versus

  • the Rahu agent who sneaks in under a smoggy oily hazy cloud then suddenly declares Himself a contender for royal entitlement.

  • If Professor Surya is stronger during this Battle Royale, confident intelligent Ravi may openly declare Reckless Rahu to be a Poseur and a Fake.

  • If Professor Rahu is stronger, the Pretender may continue to insinuate His right to make decisions as the central power.


Marriage

Any Rahu period during any mahadasha may support ceremonial marriage, if matched with 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 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.

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..."

Surya Mahadasha + Guru bhukti


What to Expect during a Guru bhukti?

Evaluate the placements of Guru.

gold_sun.gifSurya and Brihaspati = ati-mitru-graha * very good friends .

  • Barring a difficult mutual angle, the results of this period benefit the native 's lifetime wisdom learning. Rahu's illicit excess may be corrected now, and wisdom and righteousness are restored.

Challenge to craft a balance for love relationships , since both Ravi and Guru are uncomfortable in Zukra's territory.

Truth principles become "non-negotiable". Disinclined toward compromise. One feels self-reliant and wise, but not inclined to negotiate with the interests of others. Should Guru rule a dushthamsha, inability to accommodate the Other may have significant consequences for core agreements.

  • In the nativity of a husband-figure, one is the anti-human-agreement agent oneself.
  • In the nativity of a wife-figure, the agency may lie entirely with a powerful or self-confident male who cannot compromise (Zukra).

If Surya and Guru power is magnified through conjunction or trine drishti, the righteousness of the faithful - a pendulum swing from Rahu's devil-may-care carousing - can also become excessive.


Teaching Preaching Ideology Theory

If Surya and Guru are well-balanced, wisdom teachings and a general attitude of expansive optimism can complement and supplement the ego's self-centered energy. Teaching esp. charismatic religious teaching and preaching are favored.

If the radix Surya-Guru angle is unfavorable, expect some tension between personal, individualized experience of divine may and holy presence vs. received religious teachings.


Children

Putra-putriki-karaka Brihaspati often blesses with abundance of children.

  • POTUS-08 Democratic Party 1782-1862 Martin Van Buren married on 21-Feb-1807 in his Surya-Rahu period, and during the subsequent Surya-Guru period was blessed on 27-Nov-1807 with the first of his five children .


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. Especially indicates a fertile mate, a philosopher, a patron, a preacher or a priest, one well suited to the role of father.

  • POTUS-12 California Statehood 1784-1850 Zachary Taylor married in June-1810 (age 26). Guru-yuti-Rahu rules the navamsha. The marriage produced seven children.

  • POTUS-14 Bleeding Kansas 1804-1869 Franklin Pierce married Jane Appleton Pierce on 19-Nov-1834 during his Surya-Guru period * Guru rules navamsha-1 . Guru is weakened by His ruler nichha-Zukra. The marriage was enduring but unhappy and all three of his sons died in childhood.

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.

Measured from Vrizchika lagna or from Kumbha lagna, Brihaspati obtains maraka empowerment as ruler of dhana-bhava-2.

gold_sun.gifSurya and Shani are bitter enemies.

Surya-Shani is typically is a challenging period. The bhukti-pathi Professor Shani ensures, for purposes of the lesson, that self-respect and individual creativity * Surya * are oppressed and constrained by public, institutional, government, or other regulatory structures.

Receiving a heightened dose of Surya-individual-intelligence whilst in the bhukti-required conformist, proletarian environment * Shani *, one may resent being treated as an anonymous cog in a huge, impersonal machine.

If fearless Surya is very strong, the light of divine intelligence may overwhelm the cold dark fearful shadows of Shani.

But typically, it is a 12-month"Mexican standoff" (as Americans say) with neither party emerging as a clear winner and both suspiciously preparing for the battles of individual-vs-society, genius-vs-structure, freedom-vs-law.

Exception: Zukra-ruled lagna

Shani and Zukra are excellent friend s thus Shani produces materially fortunate effects for environments controlled by His friend Zukra.

  • Yogakaraka Shani counted from Thula lagna tends to focus on the social order of bhava-4-5 education and scholarship.
  • Yogakaraka Shani counted from Vrishabha lagna tends to focus on matters of bhava-9-10 theory-doctrine and public duties .

Professor Surya can often thrive in the environments of 5-vidya and 9-dharma; Surya also prospers in 10-karma and Surya is non-harmful in matters of 4-bandhu-roots.

Therefore when Shani controls the bhukti, His relentless, shoulder-to-the-grindstone effort does indeed drain the life force , as expected. Yet enduring the Shani-slow process of either schooling-scholarship (Thula) or lawful public duties (Vrishabha) evokes much less hostility from Surya, who sees Shani's structure as a support for His dramatic performance.


Shani brings the perceptions to a fixed state and freezes them in stasis. Nothing moves. If one is working on a goal, a project or a relationship, this single year of hard work and determination to follow the common rules may feel like being stuck in the deep-freeze.

Shani bhukti mandates system over person. If there is no life goal (Shani) guiding the awareness during Shani bhukti, it may feel like the spirit is being ground down to fine sand by the relentless pressure of time and institutional structures.

Social law and cultural limitations press upon individual intelligence. Dealing with heavily regulated environments defined by cold, hard realities especially scarcity of resources is counterproductive for the positive, admiration-seeking Surya. Shani's daunting workload makes it hard to "keep the faith" of buoyantly confident Surya. Individual light cannot well shine.

Supports goal-oriented behaviors structured by duty and social responsibility .


  • If Surya and Shani are well-balanced, diligent lawfulness and pragmatic materialism can complement and supplement the individual creative power. The reins may not be pulled in too tight. the native intelligently recognizes a required natural adjustment of one's own autocratic instincts when positioned in the center of a bureaucratic environment.

  • If the radix Surya/Shani angle is unfavorable, expect significant tension between the light of personal charismatic charm and conformist, fear-driven, individuality-crushing rules of law and order.


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 in rank and obtainment of professional portfolio may be expected.

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


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.


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).

During her Surya-Shani period, POTUS-35 partner Jackie Kennedy suffered the assassination of her husband POTUS-35 Profiles in Courage 1917-1963 John F. Kennedy . Shani is a maraka for husband in her Mithunaya nativity, since Shani rules 2nd-from-7.

gold_sun.gifSurya sees Budha as a neutral party, while Budha sees Surya as a friend.

Despite the fact that Surya and Budha can occupy the distrusting 2/12 angle, Surya/Budha period is not normally a conflicted period. It is generally a neutral 10+ months of mentalized activity featuring tasks of writing, conferencing, team communications, and other Budha-driven dialogue.

Budha is Surya's mouthpiece. One's brilliant personality may find verbal and written expression. Depending on whether Surya/Budha = 1/1 or 2/12, the verbal/written output may slightly alter Ravi's original radiance.

However if Budha is well disposed, the period moves quickly in fluent communication, and the native experiences conversational company. uttama-Budha = witty company.


  • If Surya and Budha are well-balanced, the daily chat of repeating conversation (including sexual dialogue) can complement and supplement the creative self-expression.

  • It is a very favorable time for writing one's own opinions and casting light upon various arguments and forms of academic argumentation.

  • If the radix Surya/Budha angle is awkward, expect some tension between splendor of personal insights and short-term, pre-scripted, conversational logic.


Leadership Duties, Public Respect, and Professional Recognition

When Budha 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.

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, ensemble, entourage, or team environments.

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

gold_sun.gifSurya and Ketu = neither friend nor foe.

Typically there is a mental or psychological disjunction between Surya's sense of meaningful centrality in the great universe (Vishnu)versus Ketu's sense of aimless, meaningless wandering and inability to control one's own movement.

While one's social identity (Surya) may remain intact, one's interior experience via Ketu is a bit lost and lacking integrity. Blessedly, the period is brief.

Psychological depression or despair is not uncommon. It is largely an expression of psychic exhaustion (Ketu). The periods lasts only 4 months therefore any negative psychological symptoms may pass quickly. Surya/Budha period can produce a significant mental effort to express Surya's divine intelligence. The Surya/Ketu period may feel like a"post-partum depression" if such a literary, dramatic, or political performance has been especially well developed. Communication empowerment is drained temporarily but shall soon be restored.

Ketu is not desired by Rahu.

Vain hope for connection. Illusion of connection dissipates into fantasy, numbness, or distraction. Desires dispersed in awareness that one is not desired.

often 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.

Intuitive perceptions are brilliant during Surya-Ketu period. Yet in order to maintain the social coherence of the personality-attribute package, the native must take special precautions to reinforce one's ego-membrane boundaries.

Getting too much involved in the political affairs of others can diminish the energy-reserves and create a political liability, however briefly.


  • If Surya and Ketu are well-balanced, deep psycho-intuitive perception can complement and supplement the higher, more spiritual sense of Self * atma.

  • If the radix Surya/Ketu angle is unfavorable, expect some tension between higher personal truths and the meaningless wandering of true spiritual detachment.


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 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 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-kakara agency of a beheader, cord-cutter, incisor, shredder, slicer, an amputator and an exhauster.

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.

  • How Will I Know 1963-2012 Whitney Houston wandered away from her fleshbod y on11-Feb-2012 fleshdeath (age 48) via drug-induced drowning * Surya-Ketu period * friends noted that before physical dissolution, she had seemed psychically exhausted.

The Final Bhukti brings end-of-cycle, conclusion, closure.

gold_sun.gifChida-dasha * final bhukti period of The six-year Surya mahadasha

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


Although chidra dasha intends to bring closure, Zukra the Match-maker is not amenable to splits. A decisive ending is unlikely during Surya-Zukra bhukti .

Whilst the spiritual self (Surya) may be ready to move forward, Zukra often tries to prevent the breaking of contracts. Dissatisfaction with existing relationships but often not enough traction to exit completely from an outdated union which has in fact outlived its purpose.

The union may be defined as a job contract, a marriage, a consulting-advising relationship, a financial promissory note, or any other sort of agreement (usually legal) which has outlived its usefulness.

Surya and Zukra are bitter enemies.

  • They fight about the priorities of Self vs. Other.

  • They fight about sensual pleasure vs. divine truth.

  • They fight about contractual relationships vs. personal integrity


Compromise to preserve Relationships * Zukra * vs. Uncompromised Integrity of Self * Surya *

They fight about the need to"compromise" one's principles in order to sustain relationships (Zukra) and the impossibility of truly compromising one's integrity and life principles (Surya) in order to accommodate the limitations of another person.

Love - what's it all about?

Surya = divine love. Zukra = human love.

  • Each voice stakes a truth claim in human life.

  • When the two claims overlap or compete for priority, the native suffers. No matter how good the angle is between Ravi and Zukra, the Surya/Zukra period is an inherently difficult time in life.

During Surya/Zukra, the native is disturbed by conflict between the self-righteous individual ego-membrane integrity of Surya versus the balancing, compromising, sensual agenda of Zukra.

The challenge during Surya-Zukra (or Zukra-Surya) periods = to achieve an integrated ego-tolerance for the compromises required by human partnerships, while sustaining *uncompromising* commitment to the priority of personal experience in the knowledge base and continuing to enjoy the deep, irreplaceable validation of divine love. One's perfect relationship with God needs to be somehow integrated into one's imperfect relationships to human love partners.

Surya is not inclined to lower His standards. The stronger is Ravi by rashi, bhava, and drishti - also the more intolerant of mere-human failing. If Surya is particularly vibrant and entitled, Ravi's need to prioritize divine love may cause the loss, through intolerance of human weakness, of an imperfect but pleasant human partnership.


Keep in mind that one is experiencing the end of a 6-year cycle. Take some down time. Except when a marriage is required, chidra-dasha periods generally do not support starting new projects. Tidy up old projects. Release unfulfilled expectations. Work fewer hours. Engage in sexual healing or any type of balance-therapy. When feeling nervous or suspicious of unbalanced exploitive or predatory motives in one's companions, take Bach flower remedy Rescue Remedy formula or valerian root tincture. Indulge in a sensual panchakarma deep-healing oil treatment with a qualified Ayurvedic physician. Relax.


Whether the Surya-Zukra conflict is severe enough to cause a loss of human love, or whether sufficient creative, divinizing improvements can be made and the human love sustained, the results of Surya/Zukra period clear the way for a deeper access to nurturing and caretaking human relationships in the forthcoming Chandra Mahadasha.

The final bhukti of any mahadasha enforces forgiveness, closure, and release. Relationships which fail to support Surya's task priority of self-enlightenment may be burned out by the blinding bright rays of Shri Vishnu.


If Surya and Zukra are well-balanced (1/1 or 3/11) attraction * akarshana * to sensual luxury can complement and supplement the higher love of the pure light of divinity.

1/1 has issues with chronic solipsism

In the 1/1, if Zukra is also ashtangata * combust and lacking favorable drishti, moudhya-dosha can give an autistic effect in relationships. the native is simply not aware of the needs or expectations of the partner.

  • Attracts an Other (partner) who cannot negotiate relationship due to extreme commitment to self-interest. The period may exacerbate this condition. Maximum frustration with the 1/1 pair in Simha and Mesha.

If the radix Surya/Zukra angle is unfavorable (2/12) expect significant tension between self interest and the interests of others.


Events related to karaka function or bhava rulership


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, bargaining, negotiations, agreements, trusts, and contracts. For maximum results, Zukra should possess other strengths via bhava rulership, razi, companion graha, drizti, inter alia.

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 Sura is materially strong , the entitlement or authority received even at this time of forgiveness and conclusion may carry forward into the subsequent Mahadasha of Surya.


Marriage

Any Zukra period during any mahadasha is a common and beneficial time to join the partner in a marriage contract. However considering that the Surya-Zukra period is the chidra-dasha AND that Surya-vs-Zukra are bitter enemies, this specific bhukti of Zukra may be less comfortable for partnership.

Zukra = kalatra-karaka. Although the final bhukti is more a time for closure and is not a particularly auspicious era for new beginnings, if there occurs a suitable transit of Rahu-Ketu to one of the required axes of the nativity, Surya-Zukra period may signal the timing of ceremonial marriage.

Typically such a marriage is avowed for the purpose of concluding the social negotiations of others (typically, the parents) who may be materially motivated to complete a contract. The native being in a low-energy state at the end of the Surya mahadasha transitioning into parental Chandra may enter quickly into parenthood. However there are numerous possible scenarios which depend upon characteristics of Zukra. Often the marriage is blessed.
