The Story Line

QUOTATION from Pema Chödrön, Living Beautifully , page 15

"When you practice staying present, one thing you'll quickly discover is how persistent the story line is.

Traditionally, in the Buddhist texts, our tendencies with their habitual story lines are described as seeds in the unconscious.

When the right causes and conditions come together, these preexisting propensities pop up like flowers in the springtime.

It's helpful to contemplate that it's these propensities and not what triggers them that are the real cause of our suffering."

Boasting a lifetime abstinence from liquor, dancing, and any other waste of time, Polk also attended the Presbyterian * worth-ship * worship favored by his religiously devout wife and mother. However, his [nīcha] Guru-3 yuti nebulous Ketu shows the hypocrisy and materialism of his values. He strongly supported slavery and manifest destiny -- a concept that many claimed was biblical but indeed had no basis in Christian scripture (Ketu no reality).

  • France-Pres 1890-1970 Mémoires de Guerre Charles de Gaulle [uchcha] Mangala-yuti-Guru [nīcha]. CdG = famed radio announcements encouraging the French nation to rally for its French-ness.

Adams wrote that the small landholders and local settlements (4) in the colonies could stabilize (4) if they were not constantly drained by unfair taxation without representation.

Dhanapathi-2 in 3rd-from-svakshetra

One capitalizes upon the basis of deeds of title, licensing and diplomas, schooling, knowledge-base, school-teaching, vehicles, owned-stewarded properties, rhythmic habits, and the cultural upbringing provided by one's parents in the early childhood home.

  • Russ-Soviet 1878-1953 Man-of-Steel Josef Stalin * Shani-4 Parivartamsha [nīcha] Guru-2 * received a surprisingly strong foundational humanistic education during his religious schooling age 12 to 21. From age 16, he attended Russian Orthodox Christian seminary in training to become a priest. His mother hoped he would become a bishop.. His education was strengthened by Dhanapathi-2 Shani-4 (strict mother) . However, his ambition sought the higher privileges of secret power [Rahu]. Despite intellectual promise, Stalin abandoned formal education age 21 and moved into full-time gangsterism.

A nationalistic family lineage extends itself into real estate or protection of a nation (4)

  • Russ-Soviet 1878-1953 Man-of-Steel Josef Stalin [dramatic-creative Uttarabhadra-1] [Shani-4 parivartamsha Guru-2-nīcha] JS was originally an agitator for Sakartvelo cultural and political independence (ethnic separatism). But due to the powerful parivartamsha between Guru+Rahu ++ Shani-4, Stalin moved his protective territory to a much bigger All-Russia scope * Rahu-Guru goes bigger and does cultural mixing

  • UK-Prince 1948- Charles of Wales * extensive property rights

At the most basic (4) level, the family (2) are patriotic (4) conventional in behavior, settled in their place, rooted in the land, and have a rhythmic comfortable lifestyle (4) which follows the established habits of the ethnic people. In a word, "normal".

Rockefeller One of the materially richest men in his world-era, born into a super-power oligarchic family owners of industrial assets such as oil, steel, railroads, banks. Johnny Rock quit his power-wielding corporate positions in order to focus on giving away money (2) in numerous magnificent but very closely accountable acts of charity. Shukra-5 dhana-karaka rules 2 + 9, and Shukra joins Shani ruler of 5, creating a significant Dhana Yoga based in financial speculation. However, Shukra also rules Ketu-2, showing the eventual release [Ketu] of accumulated treasury (2) out of the family coffers (2) and into the ethers of charitable donation.

Entitlements + Royalty + Celebrity + Fame


Ruler of Shukra's bhava can cause polarizing catalysis in the svabhava- of Surya.

One's own childhood would have been dominated by the nature of the family history, perhaps to the exclusion of other influences such as local schooling or community friendships.

If Dhanapathi-2 is compromised, one's childhood environment may have been much constrained by the family culture.

Dhanapathi-2 gains social dignity (10) though children, politics, speculation, literary and performance arts.

Strong impulse to transmit the values of" family history" (bhava-2) onto one's own children. Romance with those who have similar values regarding money, history, and storage, to the family history.

  • If a second marriage is predicted, the romance leading to second marriage is very strong

  • this relationship = easy or difficult according to the value represented in bhava-2.

Children also have a strong sense of family culture, family speech patterns, family language, family aesthetic values. The nature of that family culture is defined by the actual graha that is Dhanapathi-2 along with any graha residing in bhava-2.

If no physical children, then one may express lineage values-fulfillment through performance arts, political contests, and other expressions of individual intelligence and personal creativity.

Dhanapathi-2 in 5th-from-svakshetra gives accumulated wealth through lucky dealings with common/vulgar or negative people and materials. Appeals to vulgar interests.

Speaks in the language of outcastes and servants, about sensual experience (bhava-2) including food, touch, and visual values. Works hard for his cintamani * mani * money , but cleverly.

If a malefic, dramatizes the concerns of the common people, with fortunate results according to the dignity of the graha.

Depending on the character of the malefic, may be a storyteller who uses images of money, food, and death or an entertainer who promotes traditional values of independence, hard work, and conservation of resources

Dhanapathi-2 = the agent who gathers collections and accumulates value. Dhanapathi-2 energizes wealth-building in health, finance, and service industries.

If benefic, dramatizes language or images to get attention. Dramatization becomes exploitation. Tells salacious stories or untruths; works with images of hair, face, and skin; May be a successful preacher, entertainer, publisher or politician who caters to an outcaste or socially marginalized audience.

  • PlayBoy 1926- publisher Hugh Hefner

Speculative investment of group or family monies. Romantic love between family members, incest. Wealth gained through exploitive speculative investment schemes and sordid transactions. Medical problem-sets with tongue, teeth, mouth, hair, and face.

Dhanapathi-2 in 4th-from-svakshetra

Auspicious financially.

One capitalizes (2) upon the basis of performance art, theatrical production and ceremonies, games, politics, literary creativity, genius, capacity to channel divine intelligence, speculation-gambling, autobiographical literature, and most of all children.

Dhanapathi-2 in 5th-from-svakshetra= the family of origin = financially privileged and creative

One capitalizes upon the basis of mother's relatives, servants and servitude, problem-sets that seem structural, problem-sets that are difficult to solve, engaging in conflict, conflict in human relationships, broken contracts, and illness.

The family is distinguished in medicine, military, or social works.

  • Macedon-King o-Megos 356-323 BCE Alexander-III * distinguished military family, also purveyors of much conflict, murder, theft, violent exploitation, and toxicity

Or, the family lineage may promote wealth acquired from slavery, criminal activities, accusations or abuses.

[dhana-pati-2] [Surya in bhava-6]

[dhana-pati-2] [Chandra in bhava-6]

Generally, family is financially or culturally fortunate, due to candescent Chandra ruling 9th-from-Chandra.

Yet illness of various types affects the family lineages, and the relationship with family may be contentious. This broad principle becomes especially strong when Chandra activates kutumbha-bhava-2, so that familial illness or addiction defines the family bond.

[dhana-pati-2] [Budha in bhava-6] [svabhava]

[dhana-pati-2] [Guru in bhava-6]

  • Satygraha 1869-1948 Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi used hunger strikes as a conflict resolution strategy, and he suffered multiple conflicts with the values lineage of the family of origin. His family adhered to conservative practice of the values of their historical lineage (2) and unquestioning acceptance of the caste rules of their day. The internationalized (6) Gandhi eventually realized that his family's understanding of divinely ordained exclusionism was dehumanizing eand an expression of the very colonialist racism he sought to eradicate.

If Dhanapathi-2 is dignified, can give a successful career in cosmetic dentistry, private-loan banking, creative applications of art and music toward conflict resolution.

One may be a spokesperson or the "voice" (2) of the exploited-or-exploiters or polluted-or-polluters, including as a representative of disenfranchised environmental beings

[dhana-pati-2] [Shukra in bhava-6] * pleasure in service; addictions and food issues

[dhana-pati-2] [Shani in bhava-6] Associated with chronic financial and structural social problems

  • 52nd Dai, Dawoodi Bohra 1915-2014 Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin [Budha-2 dainya- parivartamsha Shani-6] When MB entered leadership, the community was among the poorest and most fractious. Following nearly 50 years of lawful improvements focused on education and commerce, there was economic and social regulation leading to systematic gains. The older problems of jealousy and greed did not disappear, but remediation was evident over a long span of time-and-effort Shani in bhava-6.

  • Four Seasons 1678-1741 Baroque sacred music Antonio Vivaldi [oratorical-heritage Rohini-2] [Shani-yuti-Ketu] Vivaldi had chronic health [asthma, 2-breathing] and financial insufficiency issues. AV was an underpaid, undervalued music teacher at an orphanage for most of his career. The directors of the orphanage thought that paying for the orphans to learn music was a waste of money, despite the children's performances having raised more than enough cash for the music program and more. He was ultimately laid-off by these adversarial bosses. In search of new patronage, an already-sick [and likely very hungry] Vivaldi travelled to the colder northern kingdoms, where he took ill from an unfamiliar climate and died - leaving numerous splendid musical scores unfinished.


Matters of speech or song (2) may become scandalous or even criminalized.

Speaking, lecturing, singing performances may be associated with physical illness, injury, or discomfort

However Dhanapathi-2 in the bhagya 5th-from svakshetra predicts that one's intelligence will ultimately be recognized.

Currency speculation, food speculation, mani-money-lending, gambling upon the value of a hoard

One may eat, drink or smoke toxic substances which contribute to injury or disease

The values of the family lineage are indicated partially via the karaka functions of the dhanapathi.

-- BPHS, Ch. 24, shloka 18

"When Dhana's lord is in Ari Bhava along with a benefic, the native will gain wealth through his enemies."

The concerns of yoking yoga yuvati-bhava-7 include the pairing-comparison-parity matters of balance, equity, franchise, marriage, alliance, contracts, agreements, matches, mating, equality, partnership and justice, inter alia

The ruler of bhava-2 mouth and speech is a verbalizer. Thus Dhanapathi-2 in 7 increases the verbosity of negotiations seeking equity, shared value

However 7 is stationed in the ashtakya 6/8 from dhanasthana-2. Speech may be impacted by the characteristics of the Dhanapathi-2. There is Typically, a pattern of discussing cintamani * mani * money and historic values (2) which are involved in disagreement, divorce, dispute, or unfair contracts (7 as 6th-from). Attorneys and advocates for exploited parties may benefit from this yoga.

If the Dhanapathi-2 is weakened, speech may be incomplete or clipped. If the Dhanapathi-2 is strengthened, bargaining on difficult (6) topics may be improved.

  • "O" 1954- multimedia Oprah Winfrey * Guru-Urisha-7. A famed promoter of justice for the victimized classes and icon of charitable generosity (Gifting Guru). OW has a warmly inclusive and jovial speech style. Yet, the scale of Guru's material largesse barely affects the scale of the problems (6). Guru is weakened in the rashi of enemy Shukra.

Agents of capitalization (2) enter the yuvati-bhava. Marriage is motivated and supported by wealth-acquisition.

When their alliance was legally dissolved in year-2000, the judge split their HNWI substantial assets almost equally.

Wealth + knowledge obtained via the partner, terms of contract, various alliances and business partnerships.

"If Dhana's lord is in Vyaya Bhava, the native will

be adventurous, be devoid of wealth , and be interested in other's wealth,

while his eldest child will not keep him happy ." [end quote]

dhanapathi-values-treasuries-2 in 11th-from-svakshetra is gainful = financially privileged and withdrawn.

The identity of the family lineage may be somewhat invisible or perhaps fantasized. Whatever the lineage, the native is not beholden to its definitions and one may feel that the ancestors are dream figures.

dhanapati-2 in 12 rarely harms the personal wealth since dhanapati-2 will occupy the gainful 11th-from-svakshetra.

Speech and truthfulness or historical fact are often obscured.

Material wealth may emerge from the imagination-12.

Can speak (2) to beings on the astral plane (12) and also in distant other-worlds (12)

The hoarded wealth has little power to sustain one's social identity or fleshly vitality

Efforts required to manage accumulated material wealth (2), although perhaps very beneficial to society, can drain (12) the life force vitality (1).

One may capitalize upon the basis of 12-topics such as other-worldly knowledge, communication with spirits, imagination, visualization, meditation and prayer.

Accrued assets may also flow from the world of fantasies, the private bedroom, and imagination.

also, dhanapathi-values-treasuries-2 in 12 can produce wealth from distant lands and invisible sources.

  • POTUS-38 Time to Heal 1913-2006 Gerald R. Ford belonged to a network (11th-from) of asset-holders whose identity was largely invisible to the public and many of whose members resided in lands distant from his own (Bilderberger)

Importantly, dhanapathi-values-treasuries-2 in vyayasthana does not necessarily destroy the collected treasuries. Managing the financial well-being is perhaps tiring, but one may be born into wealth, acquire wealth, distribute wealth, and enjoy wealth with no restrictions.

Naturally, if Shani or Ketu occupy dhana-bhava there can be true poverty.

Otherwise, the activities of financial wealth-acquisition may continue unabated since dhanapathi-values-treasuries-2 in 11th from svakshetra creates a valid dhana-yoga .

financial well-being (2) from foreign lands, from enclosures,

from research and sanctuary spaces, meditative reflection

financial well-being (2) from enclosed or invisible (12) sources

talks about values and dematerialization (2) with leaders of distant lands (12)

QUOTATION from Pema Chodron, No Time to Lose , p 147

"You can do this anytime you eat a meal.
  1. Before taking the first bite, just pause and think of those men and women of wisdom and mentally offer them your food. In this way, you connect with the virtue of devotion.

  2. Before taking the second bite, pause and offer your food to all those who've been kind to you. This nurtures the virtues of gratitude and appreciation.

  3. The third bite is offered to those who are suffering: all the people and animals who are starving, or being tortured or neglected, without comfort or friends. Think, too, of all of us who suffer from aggression, craving, and indifference. This simple gesture awakens the virtue of compassion.

In this way, by relying on our teachers, our benefactors, and those in need, we gather the virtues of devotion, gratitude, and kindness." [end quote]
