And their purpose in the painful learning scheme

The agenda of the graha which occupy bhava-6 represent, whether consciously or unconsciously, enslavement either physically or mentally, socially or financially, biochemically, sexually, or psychologically.

Everyone in Earth has endured lifetimes spent in slavery. Some beings have scheduled enslavement repeatedly as a learning exercise. Once enslaved, human potential allows protective survival coping mechanisms. One begins to conform to what seem as materially fixed conditions of involuntary servitude.

Aid and Assistance

Deputies and Deputation

Even if one is born into a social culture that forbids explicit slavery, one may as the plan requires become enslaved to a drug or a hormonally driven behavioral pattern (biochemical additions). One may become enslaved to financial indebtedness, marital conflict and abuse, or inner narratives of exploitation and injustice. One may become enslaved to the will or another, or to the march of time.

There are many ways to experience servitude, exploitation, abuse, humiliation, and war. There are also many ways to resolve and remediate the condition of imbalance, once it is recognized. The trick is to identity the unfair conditions and acknowledge one's own purpose in generating the miserable experience of apparent powerlessness. Several iterations of the pattern may be required to convince the native to look inward for solutions, rather than blame outward apparitions.

Zukra in bhava-6 * Imbalanced, exploitive, blaming, accusing, often toxic, adversarial relationships with the women in one's life, with those persons male-or-female in the role of peer-partner, with those persons male-or-female who handle money and valuable objects.


Kalatra-karaka Zukra indicates women who are not mother, not mother-figures. Chandra = mother-karaka; Zukra are those situated in roles of partner-mate, sister-cousin, female neighbor or coworker.

in a husbandly nativity, the wife becomes a focus of conflict or the wife is beset by illness. For the wife-figure herself, the terms of the marriage contract (Zukra promise, contract) may be rife with disagreement even if the peer-partner is a pleasant person.

Feminine-figures, treasurers, collectors, pleasure-providers who would be expected to behave in a trustworthy fashion such as bankers, vintners, food hoarders, storage vendors, peers and partners of any-gender betray the trust. Instead they may become devious exploiters, polluted in their actions, and possibly criminal in their behavior.

Corrupt or unbalanced counsel from peer-female, wife, sister, maternal aunt or paternal aunt, female counterpart, women in professional advice-giving roles. Zukra rules conditions of the contract thus Zukra does not signify mother nor grandmother. Mothers are the unconditional-lover givers of Chandra.

Positive implications: the peer-partner may serve as a health-care worker, criminal attorney or social worker. The peer-female such as sister-aunt-cousin or schoolmate, neighbor, co-worker may be dedicated to a ministry of service.

Zukra in bhava-6 * pleasure in service; addictions *

Zukra-6 is Typically, an indicator of some type of sensual addiction.

Conditions of behavioral addiction are pleasurable but often expensive. The behavior potentially involves toxic substances such as alcohol, tobacco, opium, et-cetera; or perhaps an unbalanced sensual relationships with servants, underclass persons, or animals.

Sister, aunt, peer-female may identify as a victim, sister may experience ailment, broken trust, exploitation, or peer-partner in servitude.

For the husband, the first wife may feature attachment to the narrative of the victim-personality. Peer females in the life-script tend to be accusing, blaming, or made toxic via accusation or addiction.

Shani in Bhava-6

Shani in Bhava-6 * Imbalanced, exploitive, blaming, accusing, often toxic, adversarial relationships with elders or service-class persons, the chronically ill, perpetually poor, and those profoundly resistant to movement, those in the role of judge, imposer of consequences, government officials.

Those who are expected to behave in a trustworthy (7) such as mature judges and strictly just law-givers (Shani) fail to be worthy of trust. Instead they may become devious exploiters, polluted in their motivation and possibly criminal in their behavior.

Corrupt or unbalanced counsel from government officials, from mass-mind commoners, from those who regulate and legislate social institutions, from bureaucrats, from functionaries of hierarchies.

Positive implications: the government officials or elder judges = health-care worker, criminal attorney or social worker, or the Judging One is also dedicated to a ministry of service.

Shani in bhava-6 = the lower-class beings in one's environment, such as servants and animals, may practice the art of victimology. For a female, the second husband may identify as a victim.

If compassionate, may accept Professional Duties for managing the social conditions of toxicity, disease, poverty, war, crime, conflict. Favors a career in public medicine or public-interest law.
