initiatory illness

Vimshottari bhukti 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 one' 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 yuvati-pati-7 from indriya-lagna (and often even if the ruler of 8th-from-Chandra is indeed a maraka graha) there is rebirth within the present fleshly vehicle.

8-shocking changes, occult, surgeries, disaster-response, interventions, catastrophic upheaval, healing transformation, new identities, rejuvenation, initiation, baptism, revelation, discovery, rebirth, masks, hidden assets

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

Circumstances and conditions of the dematerialization of the mother

  • POTUS-16 Emancipation 1809-1865 Abraham Lincoln- 8th-from-Chandra = bhava-12 ruled by Surya-6 heart-spine + Budha-6 lagnesha. Lincoln lost his mother at age 9 to the epidemic disease called Milk Fever (white snakeroot toxin eaten by cows, then passed to humans drinking cow's milk).

  • Due to [Vimala Yoga] AL's devastating loss was compensated. Mom's replacement was a supportive step-mother 8th-from-Chandra. AL credited his step-mother with shaping his adult character, education, and career.

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

Parents are generally mismatched and potentially outright adversarial. Father is hostile toward the mother whom he considers to be a servant [Chandra in 6th-from-Surya] Mother may find hidden ways to emotionally destabilize the father [Surya in 8th-from-Chandra]

The father may be a hidden figure, or alternatively he may facilitate or represent a process of significant transformative upheaval.

Political processes are often secretive.

  • POTUS-17 Reconstruction 1808-1875 Andrew Johnson [Surya-yuti-Budha] [1]. Dad died when little Andrew was three years old, plunging the family into poverty. Andrew's mom remarried five months later, and Andrew formed a supportive relationship with the stepdad.

Dangerous Writings

  • Ethica ordine geometrico 1632-1677 Baruch Spinoza Lagnesha Budha-Vrischika mystical writings. BS endured a complex, lifelong trauma due to his writing and publicalytions. In Vrischika, [Shani-yuti-Shukra] + [Budha-yuti-Surya] occupy the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra . Spinoza's texts [3] described the mystical geometric emanations of a single divine creator. His carefully argued discourses [3] [although currently considered works of superb genius [Surya] -- were at the time considered a threat to public morality. BS books were banned [although some were secretly circulated as cult revelations] [Vrischika]. He was permanently under threat of attack by those who believed he was speaking for the devil. He was declared to be a dangeous heretic by the authorities of both Christian and Jewish lineages. Yet, BS continued to produce remarkably clear and precise philosphical instruction [3] which transported his readers into an ecstatic state of enlightenment. He died age 44, having mainly avoided the attacks of the frightened ones [8].

POTUS-13 Slave Trade Compromise 1800-1874 Millard Fillmore * ideological politics (9) and principled discourse in preparation for the hideously violent and bloody USA Civil War.

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

  • Human Rights 1978- attorney Amal Alamuddin Clooney [Guru-Mithuna] in the revolutionary 8th-from-Chandra suggesting abundant camouflaged international undertakings. One may be often challenged to self-redefinition (8) by media-messaging signals such as photographs and news writing (3). This pattern enforces a cycle of multiple (Guru multiplier) identity changes responding to ever-changing emotional conditions [8] .

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 1931-2019 Baba Ram Dass= Guru-12 residing in 8th-from-Chandra. He endured a secrecy (8) shaming-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 Guru-in-a-distant-land [Brihaspati-12] with whom RD was deeply identified (Brihaspati-12). Yet Ram Dass was continuing to enjoy (by his own account) hundreds of clandestine sexual encounters (12, guru multiples). When Ram Dass came out, he was met with neither approbation nor rejection but rather with dreamy compassionate understanding (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.

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

  • Purple Rain 1958-2016 guitarist Prince

From the perspective of one playing the wifely-companion, 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.

Shukra in 8th-from-Chandra suggests emotional volatility toward Finances, banking, contained assets, luxury experiences, sensuality

  • R-E-S-P-E-C-T 1942-2018 Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin * After decades of family drama about money, ALF was famed for insisting that her purse be kept on stage during her musical performances. The purse had to be located where she could see it, so that she could keep a personal eye on her assets. Shukra-2 treasuries = rogesha.

From the perspective of one playing the husband-role, Shukra in 8th-from Chandra = 8th-from characteristics in the emotional relationship to the wifely companion.

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

Often the wifely-figure 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-Shukra lagna, indicating emotionally-originating health imbalances in the life experience f the wife, sisters, and feminine associates.

in a husbandly nativity,

The wifely-figure [Shukra] may be misaligned to the mother [Chandra]. Indeed the marriage alliance [Shukra] 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.

Shukra in 8th-from-Chandra. From the Shukra lagna, from The wifely figure's perspective (and also the sister's perspective) the matrikaraka Chandra occupies the unbalanced 6th-from-Shukra. 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, Shukra in 6th-from-Chandra indicates that from the perspective of one's mother * matrikaraka Chandra * one's wife * Sodarya-karaka Shukra * 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 * Shukra -5-Mula located in 8th-from-Chandra [5, children's literature, poetry]. 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 book-publisher Carrie Balestier.

in a wifely nativity

Shukra 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 womenfolk in one's life are somewhat restlessly prone to seek transformative methods to change their appearance and social identity.

  • POTUS-03 Declaration of Independence 1743-1826 Thomas Jefferson maintained a hidden union with his deceased wife's younger mulatto half-sister who was also a household slave, by whom he had six children. The public cover-up was so complete that, against the custom of his day, he did not free Sally in his will.

  • 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. He was long suspected of direct involvement in the JF-Kennedy and RF-Kennedy assassinations, but whatever he knew, that Shani-2 kept it contained.

  • Wikileaks 1971- Julian Assange receives valuable information from undisclosed sources, but it has created heavy pre-incarnationally planned consequence [Shani] of preventing [Shani] his forward movement in life (8)

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 trauma-inducing, discovering, revealing, danger-seeking 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 (Shukra-Surya-Budha in 10th-from-Chandra) Yet also she arrived into a tightly regulated hierarchy. As a writer, VSW revolutionized the literary narrative of gender roles. As a publisher, she also commercially promoted other fascinating controversial boundary-challengers. [Rahu in bhava-6] Foe example, Hogarth Press, owned by VSW and her husband Leonard Woolf, published the outrageous medical theories of Totem and Taboo 1856-1939 psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud ..

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-stewardship or stewardship, Rahu bhukti have the potential disrupt the emotional habits and routine behaviors

Yet, if Rahu or Rahu's Ruler is supported in the nativity, then Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-8 may prosper. Rahu benefits from 6-8-12 angles. Rahu may reach the goal of radical transformation (8) of the emotional body (astral body) without completely annihilating The earthen body .

Rahu in bhava-6 = conflict, litigation, self-medication, criminalization / crime, accusations occupies 8th-from-Chandra. This taboo-challenging pattern can produce benefit from shock, trauma, divorce, criminalization / crime, addiction, broken promises, infidelity, and eruptions of misery.

[Rahu in bhava-3] cinema, scripts, publication, media production, business management

  • Basic Instinct 1944- drama-commerce Michael Douglas [Rahu-Karkata] [Rahu in bhava-3] passed through Rahu Mahadasha age 37.8 until age 55.8.

  • MKD engaged in widely reported multi-decade patterns of self-destructive [8] marital promiscuityand sex-drug-alcohol misuse during his middle age era.
  • His actor-producer career[3] continued unabated

  • Rahu themes of shocking (8th) greed, murder, extreme desire, and unconstrained passions infused MKD's most successful cinematic roles [3]. Despite many instances of over-reaching adventure, MKD's actor-producer career thrives on thrills [Rahu].

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 [Shukra-yuti-Rahu] (12). TK's 18-year Rahu Mahadasha was distinguished mainly by displays of alcoholism and promiscuity his age 37 until age 55.

  • After Rahu matured age 48, and then after TK's Rahu Mahadasha had finished, TK was finally enabled to fulfill the social expectations of a senior statesman. [Makara-Shani-10]

Inherently exploratory emotional constitution that is prone toward extramarital involvements

Yet this same instinct to realize exploratory, boundary-breaching, extraordinary instinct can also be channeled into high-adventure accomplishes which break the barriers of the previously impossible.

  • Edmund Hillary (New Zealand) + Tenzing Norgay (Darjeeling/Dorje-ling Sherpa/Sharwa) were regular guys from modest backgrounds in their respective cultures. Their lifelong cross-cultural friendship proves the inherent presence of Rahu in their nativities. The pair's May-1953 triumphant summit of Chomo-lungma (Mt. Everest) occurred at the end of EH's Chandra-Kuja bhukti (Kuja physical thrust). Their shockingly unexpected transformation into world celebrity heroes occurred in EH's Chandra-Rahu bhukti.

While these agencies of destructive change are indeed present, their patterns are incoherent and dispersed among the many other pressing events in consciousness. one is barely aware of internal earthquakes that would signal a soon-to-erupt volcano.

  • Experience 1942-1970 guitarist Jimi Hendrix [Ketu Kumbha-9 priesthood] [transformative-disguising Dhaniṣṭha-4] JH embodied the abandoning, revolutionary, urgently transformational symbolism of American civil uprisings, and the incipient New Age counterculture explosions. His guitar-burning performances symbolically expressed the exhausted, annihilating apathy which formed the vacuum, out of which would emerge the beginnings of the electrical, collectivist future [Kumbha]/

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 [Chandra-yuti-Mangala-nicha] (8) JPM's ability to connect in a masculine, yet deeply emotionally sensitive fashion, has included a display of deep attachments in family life [Chandra].

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

psychology of danger, initiation, re-invigoration, re-start, 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.r.

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 dematerialization.

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 trauma-inducing, discovering, revealing, danger-seeking 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 activates 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 Jyotishavidya perspective, Chandra's job is to provide emotional stability and a psychological certainty of connection to nourishment and shelter. Periods of trauma-inducing, discovering, revealing, danger-seeking 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 trauma-inducing, discovering, revealing, danger-seeking 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

  • [nīcha-bhanga-Surya] + [Shukra-yuti-Shani-uchcha] [4, infrastructure, secure foundations] Diplomatic stability throughout emotional upheavals. 2021 divorce-1 [8] was handled with public grace.

  • Lipstick 1954-1996 drama-model Margaux Hemingway= Surya + Shukra + Budha in Kumbha-7 [marriage, contracts, equity]

Five graha in trauma-inducing, discovering, revealing, danger-seeking 8th-from-Chandra

Jungle Book 1865-1936 Empire Rudyard Kipling had Surya, Mangala, Budha, Guru, and Shukra all packed into trauma-inducing, discovering, revealing, danger-seeking 8th-from-Chandra [5, children's literature, poetry]

Tragically, two of his three children died prematurely, one of disease and one by weapon, each before the end of their 18th year.

Behind the veil of his literary celebrity, RK conducted secret romances (8) with his wife's brothers, and likely other men as well.


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 benefits 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 svakshetra, one may succeed in transforming each challenge to one's emotional basis into a material or social gain. E.g,. This graha = [uchcha] Mangala, one "goes to war" in competitive style (and generally wins).

Lord of 8th-from-Chandra = in the kundali indriya-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."

Comforting Chandra activates things that are buried; Mangala shows what may be exhumed and rediscovered
