|Regional names for Bhava-2|| |
| BPL comment:
The paradigm of belief which results in worship (investment with WORTH ) -- toward external objects, ideas, powers, deities, people -- is founded in bhava-6 imbalance.
Bhava-2 treasuries of WORTH and value = 9th (belief) from 6 (servitude, slavery).
Worship is a form of materialistic belief that is anchored in the artha trine 2-6-10, and perpetuated by the agents of 2 (family, hoarders) 6 (enslavers, exploiters) and 10 (governments, rulers).
English etymology for Worship from etymonline.com
Old English woršscip, wuršscip (Anglian), weoršscipe (West Saxon)
"condition of being worthy, honor, renown,"
Sense of "reverence paid to a supernatural or divine being" is first recorded c.1300. The original sense is preserved in the title worshipful (c.1300).

Containers and Rupa (forms) for valuable goods and conserved knowledge:
Vriddhi-pati-11 is a primary indicator of method of earning, i.e, new wealth coming in.
dhanapati-2 is a primary indicator of hoarding, existing wealth in storage.
dhanapati-2 coordinated with Vriddhi-pati-11 is a powerful dhana yoga.
The precise methods used for earning and hoarding will be known through the character of dhanapati-2 and vriddhi-pati-11 .
|vidya-pati-5 coordinated with Dharmesha-9 is also a powerful dhana yoga|| |
~~ but the means and methods are quite different. Putra bhava and dharma bhava are"bhagya" (fortune , bhaga) houses which derive their happiness from"poorva poonya" - credit from good works accomplished in parallel lives .
vidya-pati-5 wealth is accomplished through personal genius, which is really the native 's ability to channel divine intelligence.
vidya-pati-5 handles one's wealth in a highly ethical fashion (the stronger is the connection of Surya vis-ą-vis Vidyapthi-5, the more ethical).
Dharmesha-9 grants the ultimate wealth empowerment, which does not involve earning, hoarding, or gambling. The treasuries derived from Dharmesha-9 is best described by
"Success is not to be measured by how much treasuries is possessed, but whether you are able to create at will what you need."
|BPHS, Ch 13, shloka 12|| |
" If Dhana lord is endowed with strength,
the native will possess beautiful eyes."
Favorable occupants and aspects to dhana bhava gives strong straight clean teeth; a well formed mouth with soft, full lips; and clear, truthful speech.
Moral and aesthetic values as well as vocal tone are pleasingly elegant.
Wealth accrues naturally as the fruit of his labor. the native intrinsically appreciates his wealth, and thereby gains happiness from it -- whatever its comparative value.

|More family history from Dhana Bhava|
|Skandha / Personal Character / Values||
Skandha = heap
Bhava-2 indicates the lineage values-fulfillment which shape the social character. Dhanabhava may form the repository of the huge heap of psychic constructs which define and structure the mind. The psychic structure is generated by a pile-up of imprints left on the field of the subconscious by past experiences.
In English, the word character comes from the Greek kharakter meaning an engraved mark . (From kharax meaning pointed stake.) Character means the traits which are engraved = carved into the personality. Any parent may attest that children show individual character almost from the first moment of birth.
The elaborate psychic structure which contains the vast accrual of past-life and developing present-life experiences is represented by dhana-bhava, the house of treasury acrrual. The individual's moral and aesthetic values, speech patterns, family lineage, knowledge of historical tradition, treasuries - even his hair and nails! - are considered outflowings * "Śrāvaṇa" of his enormous subconscious accumulation of past experience.
By default the subconscious creates a massive network of unexamined presumptions, expectations, automatic actions and reactions, etc., until its material comes to conscious attention. At this point of awareness the samskara / carvings / character can begin to be intentionally changed.
Family narrative, source of values and lineage identity
the second most basic form of financial well-being is belonging within the family, and the social identity we develop through speech communication within the family.
Dhana rules family blood lines, our early childhood, and acquisition of primary moral and aesthetic values.
We learn what to eat, what to say, how to treat each other - from not only parents and siblings but also the larger tribal unit, including grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, house servants, etc.
Social cooperation, recognition of worthiness, and verbal support from the extended family is a basic signification of dhana bhava.
If dhana bhava and its lord are well-supported, expect harmonious conditions within the family, ensuring the transmission of historic lineage values-fulfillment = both valuable goods and conserved knowledge. Malefic drishti upon dhana bhava indicates lack of agreement within the family line which may interrupt or thwart the transmission of lineage values-fulfillment via the family.
What if the family line is not functioning well? Is treasury access thus unavailable for the lifetime?
As the saying goes "when God closes a door, He opens a window". Shukra = easy. If the family line is not very easily channeling treasure due to blockage from a damaged Shukra, compromise of the dhanapati-2, or malefic graha residing in dhanabhava, one typically seeks alternative methods of obtainment.
Alternative paths are definitely available! Knowledge of history and languages, songs and stories, material capital and cultural capital, herds and hoards, can all be obtained via alternative methods including 2nd-from-2nd, 8th-from-Shukra, 8th-from-dhanapati-2, and more.
However, the "next step" (8th-from) rebirth methods require more effort than Shukra's easy default path of simply being born into a lineage. Alternative self-initiated rebirth methods of values acquisition include apprentice craft training (3 = 2nd-from-2nd), second marriage (2), and philosophical indoctrination (9 = 8th from 2) inter alia.
| History and Tradition
Songs, telling tales, epic narratives, bardic poetry
Lineage knowledge transferred down the pipeline via arts of memory
Dhana includes all the core traditional values passed through the family line. How to treat the land, and how to treat each other. How to remember the ancestors, through songs and stories. How to celebrate the passage of time.
|Face, Speech, Talking|| |
Shukra in dhanastana gives a beautiful face (and a nice voice), although the type of beauty depends very much on rashi and drishti.
|Enemies of the paradigm of belief||
2 = 6th from 9th
2 = 8th-from-7th
dhana bhava shows players and circumstances which create the transformation point = end-of-cycle of the first marriage; possibly also beginning of cycle for the second marriage.
The first spouse's fantasies and long foreign journeys, being 12th-from-7th = the native 's bhava-6, are a source of conflict and animosity by default.
These defaults can be corrected if the native has auspicious 6th or 8th houses, but Generally, the downside of the first marriage is established by seeing what houses become dushthamsha from the 7th.
If a second marriage is indicated, look to bhava-2 for its public face. (Look to navamsha -2 for its private face.) Using bhava-2 as lagna , see which houses become subha-sthana and which become dushthamsha.
bhava-2 is lagna for the second spouse. Therefore, ceteris paribus, we attract a 2nd-marriage partner who is less our opposite (7), and more shares the culture and experience of our early childhood (7).
The naturally auspicious kendra houses counting from dhana bhava are bhava-5, bhava-8, and bhava-11. Thus, children and personal creativity; healings - including shared finances of marriage; and gains/friendships, are all by default enhanced in the second lifepartnership.
The natural dushthamsha within the 2nd marriage become:
As always, if these dusthamsha-from-2nd are occupied by good planets, receive helpful drishti etc. then the experience of spouse's previous partners, or religious sanction, or dissolution of identity can be highly favorable.
To evaluate the second lifepartnership and timing of second marriage, Jyotishi will consider:
A major duty in the portfolio of Dhana bhava and the dhanapati-2 is to ensure that, according to the script of the incarnational intent, something must die so that something else may live.
Compare 2nd house to 8th house randhra bhava. bhava-8 shows the circumstances of one's own decease, not the timing.
as ruler of 2nd-from-7th, the lord of Randhra can show timing of dematerialization of first spouse, final cessation of contracts and agreement, termination of negotiation processes that signals the death of a relationship, etc.
Timing of the spirit's departure from the physical vehicle is known by time-lordship of dhanapati-2+ yuvati-pati-7 , lord of 2nd-from-Moon and 7th-from-Moon . 2nd-from any house can indicate saturation of matters in that house. Saturation indicates that one's complete agenda regarding matters of that house has been fully accomplished and permission to move to a new energy body has been earned.
bhava-2 = 8th from 7th
Vimshottari Periods dhanapati-2 = a significant timing agent for divorce and the announced transformation-point of established relationships.
Circumstances of an dhanapati-2 timing for divorce are such that the native has exhausted all options for further negotiation in the current partnership *and* based on that fixed state of saturation or terminal non-movement in the discourse of the original partnership, has already initiated another relationship.
When divorce or final separation occurs during a period of dhanapati-2, the lagna of bhava-8 [death point of negotiations] has already manifested a new relationship, so that the 7th-from-8th has already materialized. This is a divorce in which the native has already connected with"someone else". (Something has died and something now lives.)
Example from Hollywood:
| Performance arts
of voice, song, eyes:
mouth, teeth, eyes, voice, speech, song, hair, face = benefits from dhana bhava
2 = 10th-from-5th.
From the nativities of those who enjoy a strong dhana bhava, there emerge historians, priests, singers, artists, bankers, cooks. These natives serve as curators of the ancient hoards in food, cintamani * mani * money , songs, tales, works of art, values, recorded images, traditions, truths.
|Mahabharata Shanti Parva 217.17|| |
"Physical penance (tapas) means celibacy and non-violence.
Mental penance is restraint of the mind and speech."
|If Dhanasthana be afflicted||
There may be insufficient or poorly prepared or overly preserved or non-nutritious food (2) .
One may ingest improperly prepared food (spoiled, chemically altered, or otherwise damaged) and other poisons through the mouth.
Depending on the specific malefic influence: Shani will delay but does not destroy. Kuja is aggressive and can kill. Rahu is hungry and demonic. Ketu is passive and inert.
| If Dhanasthana
= challenged by catalyst |
May suffer chronic financial problem-sets due to insufficient hoarding skills or from adversarial or self-destructive beliefs about hoarded resources.
Special attention to the shad-ashtaka 6/8 angle from bhava-2 which is bhava-9. Graha in 9 and dharma-pati can indicate the source of financial insufficiency..
These folks just cannot save money. Typically one is born into a family line that does not have a lineage tradition of treasuries development; this lineage cannot transmit wealth values to their children.
A less benevolent or blocked dhanabhava-2 may suggest being born into a lineage of ignorance and poverty ** for the purpose of learning how to emerge (8) from it**.
| If Dhanasthana be afflicted
Acquisition of knowledge may be slowed or blocked, depending on the nature of the damage.
|If Dhanasthana be afflicted||
If Shani in bhava-2 causes resistance to acquisition, the situation will improve with the passage of Time.
The accumulation of experience provides chronological and moral maturity , which eventually re-creates historic values.
