Vimshottari bhukti periods of ruler of 8th-from-Chandra may produce a shocking and transformative series of psycho-physical ailments which can be structurally complex and yet relatively short-lived. The pain and dysfunction of this challenging period may seem unsustainable and the native's physicians may declare one to be poised upon the brink of flesh-death. Yet one survives.

The near-death experience potentially generated by this unique transit is designed to recalibrated and retool the physical entity in order to be able to operate at a higher level of energetic vitality. Unless the graha which rules 8th-from-Chandra is also the maraka dhanapati-2 or yuvatipathi-7 from radical lagna (and often even if the ruler of 8th-from-Chandra is indeed a maraka graha) there is rebirth within the present fleshly vehicle.

8th-from-Chandra represents psycho-emotional relationships based on ancient memory of:

  • secrecy; hidden knowledge, confidential or privileged information

  • Taxes and inheritance

  • emergencies, catastrophic change

  • Tantric transformation; surgery, therapeutic healing, sorcery, magic

  • conditions (not timing) of death

  • in-laws, the birth family of the first spouse

  • physical body internal sexual-reproductive and endocrine system

emotionally tumultuous

Step-mother * emotional impact = 8th-from-Chandra; social-material impact upon the childhood home = 8th-from-4th = bhava-11)

  • Sudden change of routine (4), upheaval or fast-cycling of familiar cultural grounding signals (for example, a house-shift)

  • transformation of the psycho-emotional identity

Dissolution of reliable knowledge and certainty, followed by a new knowledge

  • Catastrophic upheavals destruction and rebuilding of shelter

  • Cycle of emotional destruction and rebirth

  • error of unknown followed by new control skills

  • Emergence of hidden threats to emotional stability and security

  • Conditions of psychic death; 'virtual' death via tantrik initiation;

  • 8th-from = the angle of death of old expectations and rebirth into new, more accurate expectations

Human Rights 1978- attorney Amal Alamuddin Clooney

Much depends upon Brihaspati's bhava. Example of Guru in bhava-4:

  • Human Rights 1978- attorney Amal Alamuddin Clooney has Guru in bhava-4 as lagnesha in the revolutionary 8th-from-Chandra suggesting that while there will be many homes, one may be uprooted (8) early from the birthplace. When she was two years old, her family fled instability in Lebanon and re-settled in England. She has taken temporary residence in many lands while she works on human rights legal cases. After marriage, she acquired several stately home with her husband Syriana 1961- drama-activist George Clooney . This pattern enforces a cycle of multiple (Guru multiplier) identity changes which require movement from place to place, from home to home.

Although one's own personal life may contain more occasions for upheaval than would be completely comfortable, one is often able to facilitate large-scale social change due to the infusion of Brihaspati's generosity and goodwill into the frequent of transformative upheavals (8th-from). The outcome is generally beneficial for society but may seem to take a toll on the native due to the perpetual eruptions of secret information, transformative identity change, recycling, rebirthing force within the lifetime.

  • Be Here Now 1931- Baba Ram Dass = Guru-12 residing in 8th-from-Chandra. He endured a secrecy (8) scandal that threatened to destroy his credibility with his legions of devotees. Richard Alpert was a gay man who camouflaged his sexual identity behind the veil of a piously celibate sisya focused solely upon the eternal love of his materially deceased but imaginatively vivid Guru (Brihaspati-12). Yet Ram Dass was continuing to enjoy (by his own account) hundreds (guru) of clandestine sexual encounters. When Ram Dass "came out", he was met with neither approbation nor rejection but rather with compassionate understanding and respect for his privacy (Guru-12). His inclusiveness and humanity (Guru) seemed to have increased, and no harm was done to his philosophical mission.

While one may provide agency for larger identity changes in society and community, Guru in 8th-from-Chandra is not especially helpful for aiding one's personal contentment.

  • Institutes 1509-1564 John Calvin * Guru-yuti-Rahu-3 effected a significant transformation of western European society which penetrated all levels of human experience but most prominently sacred doctrine (Guru). His Kanya nativity causes Guru to have adhipathikendradosha and thus Guru helps his professional life and his schooling while not much aiding his personal emotional peace.

Abundant emotionally-grounded intuitions regarding the nature of the cycle of birth and death. Expansive tantric sensibilities and knowledge.

From the perspective of one playing the wife-figure, Brihaspati in 8th-from Chandra suggests the emergence of 8th-from characteristics in the emotional relationship to the first husband. The husband may be a provocateur who stimulates one to create new identity, constant churning of the cycle of birth and death.

Secrecy and intrigue abounds between the partners. Fidelity is questionable.

husband-1 provides access to confidential information and hidden sources of treasury . husband-1 is associated with the circumstances of the female's death.

From the perspective of one playing the husband-role,

Zukra in 8th-from Chandra = 8th-from characteristics in the emotional relationship to the wife(s).

For purpose of emotional comfort, one prefers a degree of secrecy in marital and covert sexual arrangements.

Often the wife is first met in a camouflaged or hidden type of environment where her identity may not be clearly revealed. The "veil" around the identity of the wife may appear to change often, perhaps due to hormonal (Chandra) volatility or other pattern of self-reinvention and recycling of emotion.

Chandra occupies the relative 6th-from-Zukra lagna, indicating emotionally-originating health imbalances in the life experience f the wife, sisters, and female associates.


In the nativity of a husband-figure,

The wifely-figure (Zukra) may be misaligned to the mother (Chandra). Indeed the marriage alliance (Zukra) is rather permanently misaligned to one's own emotional core (Chandra). There may be other compensations which produce a rewarding union; However, the wife and the mother are often awkwardly arranged.

Zukra in 8th-from-Chandra. From the Zukra lagna, from the wife's perspective (and also the sister's perspective) the matrikaraka Chandra occupies the unbalanced 6th-from-Zukra. Wife, sisters, aunt, and female colleagues may display animosity toward one's mother and in general toward the drudgery of motherhood and parenting.

The opposite animosity, Zukra in 6th-from-Chandra indicates that from the perspective of one's mother * matrikaraka Chandra * one's wife * Sodarya-karaka Zukra * is seen with misaligned viewpoint. The mother dislikes or distrusts the wife, and living with this familiar stress may lead oneself to indulge in numbing substances or behaviors.

  • Jungle Book 1865-1936 Empire Rudyard Kipling * Zukra-8 -Mula located in 8th-from-Chandra. RK's parents, to whom RK was exceptionally close throughout his life and with whom RK spent long solo holidays, expressed a toxic contempt for his wife, the publisher Carrie Balestier.

In the nativity of a wife-figure

Zukra in 8th-from-Chandra may indicate that one's tastes tend to favor relationship pleasures that are secretive in nature, which can include undisclosed beautification surgeries and various aesthetic methods of changing one's identity. One's sister, or mother's own sister, share this attractive to hidden transformations and perhaps the occasional dangerous liaison (not physically dangerous but dangerous to the facade of social propriety). The only visible evidence may be that the women in one's life are somewhat restlessly prone to seek transformative methods to change their appearance and social identity.

  • POTUS-36 Great Society 1908-1973 Lyndon B. Johnson was under intense pressure for most of his career via the responsibility (Shani) to contain hidden wealth and secret information.

  • Wikileaks Julian Assange receives valuable information from undisclosed sources, but it has created heavy karmic consequence (Shani) of preventing (Shani) his forward movement in life (8)

Prognosis always improved if either Shani or Chandra is dignified by rashi or if either rules a kendra or a bhagya sthana. Shani-yuti-Rahu -or- Chandra-yuti-Rahu = amplified results.


From the perspective of the wifely figure, Professor Shani occupying 8th-from Chandra = 8th-from characteristics in the emotional relationship to the second husband. Secrecy in the second marriage. Unions subsequent to the first marriage may be blocked entirely or opaque, hidden in mystery.

Rahu residing in 8th-from-Chandra can produce catastrophic and often devastating psycho-emotional transformations. Salient impact during Vimshottari periods of Rahu.

A volatile and emotionally transformative angle which can incite dramatic self-destructive behaviors until Rahu matures after age 48.

Agent of emotional transformation (8) often with social implications too

  • A Room of One's Own 1882-1941 Bloomsbury Virginia Woolf was born into wealth and social privilege (Zukra-Surya-Budha in 10th-from-Chandra).. She challenged the customary gender roles and as a publisher, she also commercially promoted other fascinating challengers.

Keeper of Ambitious Secrets

These transformative events may feel like 'attacks' erupting from the inside of one's own being, a feeling of inner terror and tremendous fear of sudden unknown and unpredicted change.

On the fun side, the passions are very strong, with a tendency to enjoy taboo love relationships, and a romantic ambition to lose everything in the transformative yet compulsive passions.

Generally an uncomfortable indicator for long-term emotional stability and relationship health. Destructive patterns of self-nurturing, often followed by a deep healing rebirth.

Sudden and dramatic emotional changes causes by eruption of acquisitive or possessive desires in the family of one's first spouse (in-laws) or the former partner of one's second spouse .

During Rahu periods, secret monies, one's own hidden relationships, and information supposedly protected by confidentiality agreements, may be exposed.

  • Pretentious Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-8 has the ability to tap into secret knowledge and hidden funds. He can create a life-drama distinguished by mystery and intrigue. One's intuitive capacity to access the resources of others becomes the key to psycho-emotional disruption.

 For Chandra-identified activities such as parenting, school-teaching, driving and transport, sheltering, home-making, property ownership or stewardship, Rahu bhukti have the potential disrupt the emotional habits and routine behaviors

Yet if Rahu is well disposed, then Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-8 may reach the goal of radical transformation of the emotional body (astral body) without completely annihilating the physical body.

Rahu Mahadasha and periods of graha-yuti-Rahu can produce much volatility -- at least until Rahu matures after age 48.

  • USA-Sen-Mass 1932-2009 Teddy Kennedy * Zukra-yuti-Rahu (9). TK's 18-year Rahu Mahadasha was distinguished mainly by displays of alcoholism and promiscuity his age 33 until age 51. The famous Chappaquiddick drowning of his young female staff member occurred during Rahu-Guru bhukti * Guru rules 6-crime, injury . He re-married age-60, in Guru-Zukra bhukti . With Rahu having matured (after age 48) ++ Rahu Mahadasha completed, TK was finally able to fulfill the social expectations of a senior statesman.

Inherently exploratory emotional constitution that is prone toward extramarital involvements, but this same exploratory instinct can also be channeled into extraordinary actions which break barriers of public expectation in other ways, e.g. Sir Edmund Hillary.

Edmund Hillary + Tenzing Norgay's triumphant summit of Chomo-lungma * Everest occurred at the end of his Chandra/Kuja period, followed by his shocking disruption into a world hero in Chandra/Rahu.

The mother Chandra may experience frequent upheavals and changes of identity. She may change her name, location, or social position in response to circumstances which appear to be beyond her control.

  • Virginia Kelley, the mother of POTUS-42 My Life 1946- Bill Clinton was married five times and she used at least four different names. Her first husband, said to be President Clinton's father, was killed in a car-crash three months before Bill was born. Her subsequent marriages had elements of alcoholism and abuse; they ended in divorces and deaths of spouses. Her 5th marriage ended with her own fleshdeath.

Ketu in 8th-from-Chandra = disconnected from mate's family-culture and mate's financial assets (Ketu occupies 2nd-from-7th)

Ketu in 8th-from-Chandra may present a script of hidden threats and sudden-change agents. While these agencies of destructive change are indeed present, their patterns are incoherent and dispersed amongst the many other pressing events in consciousness. one is barely aware of internal earthquakes that would signal a soon-to-erupt volcano.

Rather, one tends to ignore threatening signals of imminent destruction. It can be a big surprise to the native when suddenly, all those little signals that seem so dispersed can cohere into a fixed pattern of mandatory self change!

As always, with Ketu, material harm is unlikely unless Ketu's lord is quite strong. In general the person is quite able to re-invent oneself (8) emotionally, so long as there is no major resistance within the bhava

For example Shani-yuti-Ketu in 8th-from-Chandra would indeed pose resistance to emotional self-reinvention. However normally Ketu goes with the flow... or rather with the dust cloud.

Invisibility of destructive elements is corrected if Ketu yuti another graha.

Good for mental composure. Could be victim of a surprise attack if Ketu's lord is powerful.

  • Silly Love Songs 1942- Beatle Paul McCartney * Ketu Kumbha-3 = . Due to his emotionally kinetic atmakaraka Chandra-8 yuti Mangala, Mr. McCartney's ability to connect in a masculine, yet deeply emotionally sensitive fashion, has included a display of transformative identity changes (8) via widowhood and divorce.

Ketu-5 example = an extreme case for children. Ketu in classroom-5 occupies the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra = stepmother.

  • Christian Science 1821-1910 Mary Baker Eddy The story is told that when Mrs. Eddy was very ill and no relatives would take her child, her father remarried The new stepmother would not accept MBE's child. Mary's four-year-old son was then sold by her father without her consent to a childless couple to raise as a working child on their farm. Surya rules Ketu-5 and Surya occupies 12th-from-5th. The sale was legal according to the patriarchal property laws of the day. Taking her son as their property, the couple moved 1000 miles away. The boy was told that his mother was dead. MBE did not meet her son again until he was aged 34.

psychology of danger, initiation, eruption of sudden forces, upheaval, discovery, mysterious arisings, rebirth, disaster, renovation, renewal

8th-from experience can be represented by the tantrik hunter who pursues life-sustaining prey in the ever-changing and dangerous forest-jungle. He watches with extreme attention for any sign of animal movement.

He watches tracks and scat, patterns of light and shadow; the shifting images of past and future presence. Becoming more of an animal himself, he stops to smell a scent. His skin prickles with psychic awareness of the beast, long before the eyes can see.

  • When the animal movement comes, it is sudden: bursting forth from the forest canopy, leaping forward from its hidden, camouflaged shelter.

  • In that moment of terror, that the hunter is also the hunted. One senses acutely the presence of Death.

Yet, quite normally, the hunter succeeds in killing his dinner, sustaining his own life and the lives of his family and tribe. Each journey into the forest-jungle is a new terror, a new initiation into the secrets of this environment; a new acquisition of skillful knowledge that increase competitive success and personal control..


Experiences produced by graha which hold the 8th-from angle from some lagna (in this case, from Chandra lagna) are shocking and transformative. 8th-from does not give timing of death but rather defines the conditions of death.

The graha which occupies 8th-from-Soma generates deep and perhaps shocking transformation of identity during its Vimshottari periods. The houses owned by the graha which occupies the 8th-from-Chandra will show the main impact.

  • If the graha which is 8th-from-Chandra is also the lord of dhana bhava, the transformative shock may result in increased wealth.

  • If the graha which occupies 8th-from-Chandra is also the lord of bhava-6, there may be injury or accident consequential to the shock; however one may also emerge with sharpened medical skills and proceed to become a great healer.

  • If the graha which is 8th-from-Chandra is also the lord of yuvati bhava, the transformative shock first harms trust in the marriage, but may result in a quest for healing which ultimately deepens the partner's trust in their bond.

  • If more than one graha occupies this position, there may be double or triple the number of emotional"emergency" periods involving"breakthrough" of secret information or hidden forces.

Chandra and Change

Chandra follows a highly predictable, cyclic pattern of rising, setting, and movement from phase to phase. The movements of Chandra are very stable and fully known from the earliest antiquity. Therefore when Chandra's capacity for"change" is considered, it is important to appreciate that for Chandra"change" is never sudden or catastrophic, but always paced and guided by the fixed cycles of nature.

  • The types of change that Chandra provides are inherently *predictable* change, such as natural aging, menstrual and fertility cycles, and the psychological maturation which results from parenting and caring for others.

  • Candescent Chandra rules the roots and boundaries of the home culture, which are established in the identity during one's earliest years, mainly via one's relationship with the mother.

From a Jyotisha perspective, Chandra's job is to provide emotional stability and a psychological certainty of connection to nourishment and shelter. Periods of 8th-from-Chandra signify *unpredicted* change which is experienced as frightening invasion, incursion, and upheaval.

Periods of the lord of 8th-from-Soma may be perceived as a Threat to personal, regional, or national security. The threat may be in fact of a socio-cultural, physical, financial nature, but regardless of its realistic content, it is perceived as a direct challenge to the fixed emotional integrity.
Two graha in 8th-from-Chandra = three or four bhava are activated in the catastrophic transformative process of destruction and rebirth, during periods of randhresha-8 from Chandra. This person experiences dramatic emotional volatility. If the graha involved are auspicious, the volatility generates rebirth and success:

If the graha are unfortunate one may be unable to capitalize on the revitalization potential contained within the changes, and instead may self-destruct.

Three graha in 8th-from-Chandra

= three to six bhava are activated in the catastrophic transformative process of destruction and rebirth, during periods of randhresha-8 from Chandra..

One may experience dramatic emotional volatility. If the graha involved are auspicious, the volatility generates rebirth and success:

Psychic Expectation of Sudden Change

The randhresha-8 from Chandra = an agent of "emotional catastrophe" which permits multiple cycles of interior death and rebirth within the current incarnation. This graha has a psycho-emotionally tantrik or magical orientation.

It is aware of the potential for destruction and rebirth, and during periods of the randhresha-8 this cycle is activated. The angle between Chandra and the randhresha-8 from Chandra will reveal the style and success of the native 's skills in handling the sudden emergence of hidden information.

  • if the randhresha-8 from Chandra occupies a kendra from Chandra, the auspice is good for continuing stability of the social personality. the native will not descend into social or emotional dysfunction, for example a personality disorder, during the stress Vimshottari periods of the randhresha-8 -from-Soma.

  • If the randhresha-8 from Chandra is an empowered graha, in kendra from Chandra and uttama or swakshetra, the native may succeed in transforming each challenge to one's emotional basis into a material or social gain. E.g,. this graha = uttama-Mangala, one "goes to war" in competitive style (and generally wins).

Lord of 8th-from-Chandra = in the radix lagna, one becomes a personality-identified icon of constant transformation. The individual changes at the same pace as his environment changes; but one is able to transform personal shock into iconic body imagery of death and rebirth

Lord of 8th-from-Chandra is a graha charged with tantrik transformative agenda. If the lord of 8th-from-Chandra is also lord of Randhra bhava (measured from the eastern horizon) expect truly catastrophic physical and emotional upheaval, wave after wave of inexorable change in a pattern of destruction and rebirth, during periods of that magical sorcerer Graha.

14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso

The Dalai Lama's Book of Wisdom

"We often speak of the external enemy.

For example, in my own case, our Chinese brothers and sisters are destroying Tibetan rights and, in that way, more suffering and anxiety develops.

  • But no matter how forceful this is, it cannot destroy the supreme source of my happiness, which is my calmness of mind.
  • This is something an external enemy cannot destroy.
  • Our country can be invaded, our possessions can be destroyed, our friends can be killed, but these are secondary for our mental happiness.
The ultimate source of my mental happiness is my peace of mind . Nothing can destroy this except my own anger."
