  • E.g., if the graha happens to be a strong Shukra, the beauty norm will be quite refined, and one may enjoy family affluence, lineage art and music talent etc.

Identity is strongly invested in cultural roots of the mother's people. If the graha is less benevolent, there may be disruption of ties to the land and the folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms of one's people, making the issue of property an embattled one, but a strong reactive relationship to one's roots and customary entitlements nonetheless.

Natural inclination to express the social identity via roles of schoolteacher, homeowner, and parent .

Most comfortable in the home, on the land, in the schoolroom. Self-identifies as a parent and also a teacher .

Tends to be a homebody, preferring the protected space of home, monastery cell, or one's own little spot in the corner of the grass hut. Naturally prefers to be sought out;

disprefers to advertise or promote oneself.

However, once brought upon the stage = a natural educator who may be highly persuasive

Creates safe space and channels nurturing energy, very parental. Identifies socially with the mother and her people. If a profession is required, he will be an educator, homebuilder, property manager or steward of the land.

If bandesha-4 lagnesha is powerful such as [uchcha] Budha or svakshetra Guru, native may never leave home. People will come to him. Believes he is "caretaker of the hearth" who exemplifies "securely grounded living".

If the lagnesha in bhava-4 receives less benevolent drishti, the ruler is uncomfortable , or lagnesha has polarizing catalysis via co-tenants one may not easily find the sense of home and parenting which they find most comfortable.

Lagnesha Surya is usually an exceptionally independent person associated with patriotic activities, transportation, shelter-building, or foundational teaching. Autocratic; more interested in personal truth than in customary habits of the people.

When Lagnesha is born into Suta Bhava (lagneśe sutage jantoh)

one enjoys only moderate happiness in matters of children (sutasaukhyaṁ ca madhyamam)

Public Figures

lagnesha = Surya in bhava-6 Simha indriya lagna

lagnesha = Chandra in bhava-6 Karkata indriya lagna

lagnesha = Mangala in bhava-6 * urge to argue, exploit, medicate

lagnesha = Budha in bhava-6 [svabhava] * ailments of the hands, arms, lungs, shoulders


lagnesha = Guru in bhava-6 * multiple service ministries * healthcare activism + many medical issues

lagnesha = Shukra in bhava-6 * pleasure in service; addictions


lagnesha = Shani in bhava-6 * chronic illness


Lagnesha in Bhava 6 = the social-attribute package known as "identity" may be individually uniquely identified with personal health issues, often of a chronic nature.

One's core identity may become a magnet for social or interpersonal issues that are characterized by argument, addiction, injury, divorce, exploitation, war, unfairness, accusation, conflict

  • France-Queen 1755-1793 Madame Deficit Marie Antoinette [Shukra-yuti-Surya] . Her Mangala-Mithunaya-2 suggests an outspoken verbal style, and at a time of great social conflict her pronouncements caught the ire of the people. An icon of inter-class conflict and economic injustice, she met the guillotine aged 37.

  • POTUS-08 Democratic Party 1782-1862 Martin Van Buren [Shani-yuti-Guru] * his career started with the chaotic, escalating, and nearly bankrupting War of 1812. Known as Martin Van Ruin, MVB was blamed for doing nothing to reduce or manage the financially catastrophic Panic of 1837

  • USA-Treasury 1755-1804 Federalist Papers Alexander Hamilton [Surya-yuti-Shukra] . AH was a lightning rod for conflict of every kind: collegial, marital, parental, commercial, ideological, political, and physical. He died by gunshot in an honor-duel age 49.

  • POTUS-18 Civil War 1822-1885 Ulysses S. Grant [uchcha] + [nīcha] Budha remains a great iconic personality indelibly associated with the USA Civil War. His eight-year presidency was competent but not remarkable. He is remembered overwhelmingly as the military general who won the unwinnable war, at a terrible human cost. Secondarily, he is remembered as a lifelong alcoholic.

  • My Inventions 1856-1943 Nikola Tesla + [Chandra-yuti-Ketu] is remembered for his transformative scientific contributions to modern civilization. However perhaps the most his distinctive feature of Tesla's legacy was his vicious animosity toward Thomas Edison. According to NT, Edison was a greedy businessman and not an inventor of any ability. Secondarily, Tesla's debilitating Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is an integral quality of his profile.

  • POTUS-40 American Life 1911-2004 Ronald Reagan * Surya lagnesha * was a key player in causing the financial collapse of the USSR via RWR's wild spending spree on Star Wars era space guns and conventional weapons. The Soviet leadership tried to stockpile a competitive amount of armament, but their centrally planned economy could not fund the Big Spend. The USSR economy collapsed, the Berlin Wall fell, and the Cold War was finished. RWR's gamble nearly bankrupted the USA as well, particularly since he cut taxes at the same time. Reagan's disregard for the working class and his extravagant military budget became flashpoints for protest. However, most agree that the outcome was better than expected.

Individual, social or professional identification with social conflict, illness, addiction, and pollution; poverty and usury, exploitation and servitude

Identified with Animosity. Grievance, and Resentment

Identified with Ministries of Service to the Needy

Personality-identified with the narrative of illness, poverty, servitude, and interpersonal conflict.

Splendid placement for those offering a ministry of service in environments that manifest experiences of poverty, conflict, unemployment, war, enemies, toxicity, pollution, debt, and disease.

Special abilities and skills emerge from a natural affinity with servitude, exploitation, and inability to achieve agreement. Repeated encounters and persistent connection with entities that cannot agree with each other (war, 6) or individuals who cannot agree with society (crime, 6).

Dignified papagraha in bhava-6 may support a praiseworthy social success in one of the conflict-management professions such as military, law, finance, social-work, or medicine.

If lagnesha-in-6 has benefic qualities (Shukra, Guru, or ruler of a pleasure bhava) lagnesha-in-6 may tend toward pleasurable identification with the victim narrative [story of being eaten] - both its litany of accusations and its medical, legal, or financial problem-sets.

Worldwide [Guru] service

A neutral lagnesha such as Budha will cause both.

lagnesha-in-6 feels most natural and comfortable in a self-medicated state. Environments in which one may recognize a familiar and expert identity include the medical clinic, the social welfare counseling office, the divorce court, or the police station. one is beautifully suited to the medical profession if evolved.


As always with graha in bhava-6, best results from those graha which produce good effects in matters of controversy, dealing with enemies, war, pollution, arguments, disease, poverty, disagreement, and other species of imbalance.

Shani-6, Mangala-6, and Rahu-6 all generally produce favorable results, albeit Shani takes a long time to win His battles as His method is not active but rather via Endurance.

Other graha in 6 tend to produce physical health challenges for the native along with an orientation to the health-care or service professions. However, the ultimate determiner of profession activates 10th navamsha and that lord's role in radix.

Whether one chooses a profession in the human services ministry (the best choice) or becomes a patient-victim who receives those compassionate ministrations, often there are significant physical health issues associated with the lagnesha .

lagnesha = Surya in bhava-6

lagnesha = Chandra in bhava-6 = Chandra-Dhanus * comforted by customary beliefs * settled into rhythmic received teachings * needs to feel wisely guided

lagnesha = Mangala in bhava-6

  • My Inventions 1856-1943 Nikola Tesla obsessive-compulsive disorder

  • POTUS-21 Civil Service 1829-1886 Chester A. Arthur * lagnesha = Mangala in bhava-6 + [Surya-yuti-Rahu] . As the Customs Collector of the Port of New York, Arthur earned a lavish income from political machine kickbacks. The exploitation system was driven [Kuja] by patronage payments. Within this network, he was able to combine tax-sheltered monies (8) and personal identity via Mangala lagnesha. Kuja-yuti-Rahu contains an element of inventive surprise. Just before the end of his presidency, Arthur shocked everyone by opportunistically [Rahu] implementing reform in the racketeering machine (6) of federal patronage jobs. True to Rahu, Arthur realized that he was finished with government service, and he would soon die from chronic kidney disease (6).He acted both swiftly and cleverly to execute what conventional-thinking others had been unable to accomplish.

lagnesha = Budha in bhava-6 [svabhava]

lagnesha - Guru in bhava-6 * many service ministries; numerous health issues producing excess girth, swelling, obesity, over expansion of digestion *

lagnesha Shukra in bhava-6 * pleasure in service; military, social-work, slavery, criminal environment, loan-finance . sweet false-balancing self-medication patterns such as addictions *

lagnesha Shani in bhava-6 = May be an excellently plodding, enduring, patient physician or medical worker. Professional capacity for public-discourse argumentation (Shani-6) problematization (not resolution) of exploitation, social conflict, war, poverty, disease or pollution, involving scarcity and occurring over a sustained length of time. There are two possibilities.

Shani-Mithunaya for the Makara native

  • Miracle Roses 1207-1231 St. Elizabeth of Hungary [Guru-yuti-Shani] she was honored for centuries as a Queen who used her social position [Makara] to further for her service ministry to the extremely poor, diseased, disabled, and desperate.

Shani-Karkata [Vimala Yoga] * for the Kumbha native

  • POTUS-26 National Parks 1858-1919 Theodore Roosevelt gained a public identity associated with private loss at his age 26, during Shani-Chandra bhukti. His mother and his first wife died on the same day, of different causes, 1884. Through newspaper reports, many Americans learned about Teddy's double-bereavement, and the story helped to galvanize his reputation.

  • A New Earth 1948- philosopher Eckhart Tolle * career in service ministry to the emotionally suffering

  • USA-Sen-Tenn VPOTUS Climate Change 1948- Al Gore * [nīcha] Mangala-yuti-Shani [Vimala Yoga] care for natural environment, disadvantaged populations

one identifies (lagnesha) with domains of acute imbalance , such as medical clinics, battlefields, police and military, criminal attorney's office, money-lender and debt collection, poorhouse, bankruptcy court, social welfare agency.

Flourishes in roles such as military agent , medical practitioner, or minister of service to the unbalanced populations. Identified with scenes of disease, injury, conflict and accusation.

If the lagnesha is damaged in bhava-6, one may become moralistic, judgmental, accusing, or vindictive. However, a well-supported lagnesha in bhava-6 indicates a natural minister (helper) such as a physician, problem analyst, counselor of victims and aider of the dispossessed.

Often concerned with processes for rectifying social ills. One feels "appropriate" when using definitions of moral error from bodies of argumentation and advice such as religious scripture or government law.

When punitive graha such as Shani are the lagnesha, may be a wonderful fire-and-brimstone preacher. Deeply identified with "sin" or imbalance, and its vigorous correction.

Believes that one is called to be a"role model for correctly argued and regulated living."

Physically and socially identified with medicines , drugs, poisons, illness, poverty , finance + Loan-making, social work and family conflict, accusations and blaming, criminals and crime, victimization [being eaten] , outsiders + Low class, exploitation and animosity .

  • If the graha has other positive association, may suit a professional in conflict management such as physician, attorney, police officer, or judge.

  • If the lagnesha is a dignified planet, gifted advocate for victims in the practice of law and medicine.

Favorable lagnesha in bhava-6 makes a conflict management professional such as physician, criminal or divorce attorney, police officer, social worker , or judge.

Naturally suited to an environment that emphasizes service to the exploited and disadvantaged, health, debts, accusations, argument-litigation, grievances.

Ceteris paribus, supports marital longevity. However other factors can cause one to see the marriage as simply an extension of the identity, or mirror to the ego.

  • POTUS-37 Watergate 1913-1994 Richard Nixon * professional attorney. Nixon was a contract lawyer (7) in private practice before he entered politics. As a WW-2 naval officer, he negotiated (7) military supply contracts. As vice-president for eight years during the Eisenhower administration 1952-1960, Nixon was assigned nearly all of the relationship-maintaining duties since Eisenhower himself was a data-driven systems planner with minimal people skills.

Splendid placement for attorney, advocate, barrister, lawyer, contract-agent, bargainer, deal-maker.

Many found in politics and government due to their pronounced capability for crafting agreements amongst adversarial parties.

Also gifted in corporate deal-making, financial mergers.

lagnesha = [Surya in bhava-7] lagna must be Simha. The deal is rarely balanced because self-centered Surya is the enemy of partner-parity Shukra. Bargains and arrangements tend to favors the interests of the solipsistic native above the interests of the partners. Second marriage is typically easier (unless there are also challenging graha in 2).Often an iconic personality due to Ravi in 10th-from-10th = public visibility.

lagnesha = Chandra in bhava-7 * the Karkata native is typically devoted to the union and in fact emotionally dependent upon the partner; one cannot imagine life without this mate, and socially this native presents oneself always as part of a team or dual-unit.

However, Tolkien adored his wife, and no amount of complaining by his fellows ever could dissuade him of her charms.

  • Way of Zen 1915-1973 radio philosopher Alan Watts + [Surya-yuti-Mangala]

  • POTUS-pair-16 Illinois 1818-1882 Mary Todd Lincoln [Guru-yuti-Shukra] + [Budha-yuti-Surya] .

Her large home was open to visitors at all hours, and she spent luxuriously on cultivating alliances to support her husband's ascending career (7). Although considered extravagant by some frugal observers (including her husband) Mary's home-based opulence made everyone feel welcome [Guru] regardless of their views [Surya], so long as they came with a mind to express their views in a sociable style (Shukra-Guru). Her diplomacy (7) elevated her unlikely rural-mannered husband into the POTUS-16.

  • Fijación Oral 1977- singer Shakira Mebarak

  • Steppenwolf 1877-1962 anti-Nazi Hermann Hesse [Somana-yuti-Kuja] [Somana-yuti-Shani] [Somana-yuti-Rahu] * Hesse wrote primarily about modern themes of psychological trauma and healing at the level of deeply personal experience [Chandra] but situated in the social community of friendships (Shani-Kumbha-8)

  • Zanjeer 1942- drama-politics Amitabh Bachchan [uchcha] Guru in bhava-8 = a master of self-re-invention. After his cinematic career collapsed (8) and again after a political corruption shaming-scandal (Shani-Rahu bhukti) AB's public reputation recovered with surprising alacrity. Professor Guru-8 rejuvenates and expands, opening many secrets and much access to hidden assets.

Dangerous Conditions, large-scale catastrophe, sudden rebirth

Secrecy and hidden lifestyles

Effects of graha in 8 are eruptive, secretive, occult, mysterious, hidden, magical, and changing-changing-changing. Any graha which is born into randhrabhava becomes subject to the fast spinning of the cycle of self-destruction and rebirth.

The speed of change-of-form may be terrifying or it may induce ecstasy.

Matters of the bhava ruled by graha in 8 are controlled by the fast-turning, identity-destroying and rejuvenating force which spins the wheel of the cycle of birth and death.

Often body-image issues related to lagnesha-8's attempts to change the size-and-shape, use camouflage, or surgically alter whatever part is perceived to be dangerous.

  • Egypt-Sudan King 1920-1965 Faruq al-Awwal * Surya-1 parivartamsha Shani-8. As king [Surya] FA was engaged in a push toward transformative change in governance [Shani] with the British colonial overlords of Egypt [Makara]. Yet FA received intense push-back from the conservative [Shani] secretive (8) military authorities. The parivartamsha between two enemy-graha on a 6/8 angle is less than favorable for kingl individual-authority purposes, tending to have Surya-Makara overwhelmed by devious secret forces of Simha-Shani-8 . Severe body issues emerged (8) perhaps as a coping mechanism in a radically unbalanced situation. Obesity developed, additionally impacted by Shani-8-Simha activates-2 food. Ignominy marked his end.

In the modern age, women are told that beautiful bodies must resemble the adolescent male physique.

Lagnesha in randhrasthana-8 = carries a strong social identification with the circumstances of sudden, revolutionary change and upheaval.

  • Excellent placement for a midwife, emergency responder, or intervention healer.

Often a highly sexual [Mangala] person but this depends considerably on the randhresha-8 ;

prone also to mysterious or undiagnosable disease .

Will use The financial well-being for purposes consistent with the character of the lagnesha. (E.g., Kuja or Surya, self-promoting purposes. Shani, conservative investments, especially in earth properties.)

One believes oneself to exemplify "secretly enriching, transformative living."

Lagnesha-8 = physically and socially identified with secret transactions, hidden sources of treasuries , including private investments, confidential therapeutic privilege, and classified diplomatic information.

Often a secretive person

  • if the graha is strong one may wield considerable power behind the scenes.

  • Inherited wealth. Physical body = agency of mysterious and hidden forces.

  • kaSTa = bad; ill, evil, wrong; painful; grievous, severe, miserable; difficult, troublesome ah! woe! alas!

"110. Deha-kashta Yoga


the Lord of Lagna must join a malefic or occupy the 8th house.


The subject will be devoid of bodily comforts.


...Most of the manual workers belong to this category. The Yoga is said to become defunct if a benefic aspects the ascendant lord."

Das commentary:

if The lord of the 1 conjoins a malefic planet

or the lord of the 1 is in 8, and is not the lord of the 1 is aspected by a benefic,

and is not the lord of the 1 conjoins a benefic."

"The Ascendant Lord, who represents the body in the chart, is located in the difficult eighth house or conjoins a malefic devoid of any benefic aspect.

  • This means that, especially in early life, you will be unable to find bodily comfort easily.

  • Throughout life also, there may be a feeling that the simple pleasures of life, such as peace and physical comfort, are difficult to achieve.

This can be caused, for example, by a continuing, difficult to shake, negative physical feeling or condition."

Although Taylor had no qualifications and he accomplished almost nothing during his brief 16 months as POTUS (he died in office) historians observe that public recognition is an extremely potent factor in electoral politics.

  • POTUS-29 Teapot Dome 1865-1923 Warren G. Harding * WGH was promoted through the party machine from Ohio state senator to the USA Senate to POTUS-29. He had long served in public life since buying his first newspaper age 18, was handsome, and widely recognized.

Chapter 24 shloka 11

lagneśe lābhage jātaḥ sadā lābhasamanvitaḥ |

suśīlaḥ khyātakīrtiśca bahudāraguṇairyutaḥ || 11||

When lagnesha is born into Labha Bhava (lagneśe lābhage jātaḥ)

one realizes gains (sadā lābha-saman-vitaḥ)

is well-connected (suśīlaḥ)

is well-known and often mentioned (khyāta-kīrtiśca)

has numerous wives and good things (bahu-dāra-guna-iryutaḥ). [Pijan]

"If Lagna's Lord is in karma-bhava,

  • one will be endowed with paternal happiness, royal honor (or patronage),

fame among men and will doubtlessly have self-earned wealth."

Public Figures

lagnesha = Surya in bhava-12 * identified with certainty of other, private worlds

lagnesha = Chandra in bhava-12 * identified with feelings of other private worlds

lagnesha = Mangala in bhava-12 * identified with competitions in other, private worlds

lagnesha = Budha in bhava-12 * identified with communications of other, private worlds


lagnesha = Guru in bhava-12 * identified with doctrines of other, private worlds

lagnesha = Shukra in bhava-12 * identified with relationships in other, private worlds

lagnesha = Shani in bhava-12 * identified with rules of other, private worlds


Lagnesha in Bhava 12 = social identification with:

visionary imagination, prayer and spiritual guidance, private bedroom, hospital and hotel, meditative spiritual retreat, divination, distant lands


This native feels most natural and comfortable in his own imagination, in the liminal space between life and death.

Also one feels identified with the geography and behaviors distant lands . Often an internationalized individual who feels equally comfortable in the homeland and abroad.

one has a strong social identification with private, sequestered locations and foreign lands, which trait will emerge most vividly during the Vimshottari mahadasha period of the lagnesha.

Wants to be in an enclosed, sanctuary space: bedroom, dormitory, attic, a spa, ashram, hospital, monastery - or prison, concentration camp, survivalist compound - any walled enclosure.

Wants very high levels of privacy in all undertakings, both personal and professional. If other graha can bring one into high profile public life, the lagnesha in 12 says that this native's creative process, decision-making, and core relationships are conducted in a very private space preliminary to one's appearance on the world stage.

Likes the peaceful courtyard, the ordered space of the meditation hall, the interior compound, the super-private meeting room.

Socially identified with the domain of subconscious imagery, fantasy, dreams, and out-of-body creativity.

If lagnesha is strong, one can be a dramatic articulator of the collective imagination.

If Mangala in bhava-12, competitive and physicalized in bedroom and vigorous movement in Other Worlds, distant lands

If Budha in bhava-12 descriptive and explanatory narratives of the dreamlike fantasies of the imagination

  • Turtle Island 1930- poet Gary Snyder + [Guru-yuti-Shukra] * decades of literary writing and linguistic translation [Budha] along with academic research (12) into the ancient cultural philosophies of distant lands

If sparkling Surya gains celebrity strength one may be a wonderful entertainer and brilliant or iconic genius.

If Shukra is involved, may be a seductive tempter-temptress into a world of forbidden, private delights.

In a generally sensualized nativity, one may be characteristically inclined toward bed pleasures when lagnesha occupies bhava-12.

On the other hand, in a reserved and contemplative nativity, one may crave religious retreat in a cloistered sanctuary with as little visibility as possible

Naturally, bhava-12 being 6th-from-7th, the unboundaried activities in this house are known for their animosity toward the boundaried contract of marriage.

Yet one rarely achieves emotional intimacy of genuinely shared partnership, due to being so identified with the world inside one's own head.

One feels appropriately engaged during long sojourns in foreign countries , where one acts out a dream-persona of foreign cultural behaviors.

  • God's Dream 1931- Anglican Archbishop Desmond Mpilo Tutu a South African native, spent decades in England, serving the Anglican Christian church. Eventually he returned to his homeland, but still travelled extensively.

One believes that one is "making dreams come true" in exemplary fantastic , imaginative living.

One may be physically and socially identified with events which constitute a loss of personal identity, merging into the collective unconscious or the corporate mind, espionage, foreign lands, meditation, art studios, illusions, research laboratories, prisons and camps, sanctuary and enclosure.

Alternatively, especially with a strong legal-punitive Shani, one is identified with social structures, survival fears, and laws of distant lands

A private person, but one may nevertheless be responsible for managing essential world energies. Can be either prayerful or deranged or both.

Not inclined toward seeking public recognition unless there are other, highly dynamic, graha in lagna.

Physically and socially identified with 'loss of identity' , espionage, foreign lands, meditation, art studios, illusions, research laboratories, prisons and camps, sanctuary and enclosure.

Naturally suited to an environment that emphasizes undercover work , back-room deals, espionage, sanctuary life such as ashram or monastery, convalescence and retirement, private imagination, living in foreign lands , and recovery of past-life identity.


chapter 24 shloka 12

lagneśe vyayabhāvasthe dehasaukhyavivarjitaḥ |

vyarthavyayī mahākrodhī śubhadṛgyogavarjite || 12||

When Lagnesha occupies Vyaya Bhava (lagneśe vyaya-bhāvasthe)

comfort of the body may be diminished (deha-saukhya-vivar-jitaḥ)

experience the absence of meaning (vyartha-vyayī)

be capable of great anger (mahā-krodhī)

Yet, these outcomes occur only when the 12th bhava lacks favorable yoga or drishti (śubha-drig-yoga-varjite). [Pijan]

Das commentary :

IF the lord of the 1 is in a trine.

"Good life in general, wealth, intelligence.

Physical health at all times."
