energetic, kinesthetic, pioneering,

seeking championship

familiar [Chandra] to the animated world (1) * instinctive flow


emotionally sensitive to bodily needs

comfortably settled, nested, habituated to familiar rhythms of flesh-body, muscular movement, hormonal emotion, progressive action.

[Chandra in classroom-1] tends to be soothed, protected, nourished in 1-environments such as

  • physical body, athletics, competitive sport
  • energetic movement, championship
  • birth, innovation, pioneering, forward movement
  • dance, hunting, vigorous action, running
  • muscular exercise, independent pursuit
  • uniquely emotional presentation
  • sensitive personality, feelings expressed through body
  • physical therapy, massage, hands-on healing
  • cooking fires, hot nourishment
  • socially identified as parent, caretaker, nurse, garderner, shelter-provider, feeder

Vitality of Mother

Depending upon Chandra's characteristics, Mother may provide a lifelong primary identity-affirming relationship

bhava-6 ailments, discomfort, distrust, complaint, slavery, injustice = the conflicted 6th-from-Chandra

Vimshottari-dasha, bhukti of ruler-of-6 may produce an emotionally-charged argument, health challenge, or criminal accusation in the form of unfairness, animosity, or toxicity. The culprit may be pollution, a servant, employee, physician, pharmacist, criminal, or one of the mother's siblings. Outcome depends upon the strength of the rogeshar.

When Chandra occupies bhava-1 - indriya-lagna is located in the Chandra lagna itself. One has a natural affinity for first-from matters such as The earthen body appearance, for matters of vitality and movement, and for the visual identity.

Identified with gardens, home-keeping, shelter, nourishment, parenting, locality, protection

The Chandra-1 native seeks comfort in environments that are deeply parental, protected, familiar and nourishing. Chandra-1 is a signature of the self-focused athlete and modeler, often found in fleshbody-oriented physiological, engineering, and birthing roles.

Deeply patriotic. Identifies with the folkways, habitual rhythms, farming-fishing, home culture.

The avowed partner is often a bargainer, arbitrator, attorney or negotiator who seeks balanced terms of agreement, often involved in match-making, deal-making, trust-building roles.

Professor Chandra's special area of instruction is emotional sensitivity, absorption of feelings from the local environment, and emotional reaction or response. Chandra-1 is especially sensitive to the fluctuation of waters within the fleshbody (such as hormones) birth, newness, and the need for familiar, rhythmic routines of movement (such as worship rituals, sports flow, military drill, or dance). Chandra-1 is soothed near tidal waters.

The child becomes accustomed to the rhythmic patterns of agile intuitive movement, and one is made comfortable with pioneering-yet-stabilizing activities and roles from an early age.

In addition to an affinity for ritual (rite, rhythm) Chandra-1 grants the calming power of a familiar face. Parental protective figures in the worlds of politics and religion often have Chandra-1.


Definitive influence of Graha-yuti-Chandra

Anything which may be said of Chandra must be prefaced by a disclaimer. Professor Chandra is the soul of impressionability. He lives to reflect. Therefore, the characteristics of other graha yuti Chandra are often more in evidence than the underlying behaviors of Chandra Himself.

  1. Somana + Kuja * Emotionally competitive
  2. Somana + Budha * Emotionally communicative
  3. Somana + Guru * Emotionally effusive* Emotionally expansive
  4. Somana + Shukra * Emotionally indulgent
  5. Somana + Shani - nishturabashi yoga * Emotionally constricted
  6. Somana + Surya * Emotionally entitled * Emotionally self-focused
  7. Somana + Rahu * Emotionally expedient
  8. Somana + Ketu * Emotionally scattered

Chandra-1 needs constant engagement with The earthen body and the personality shell. Deeply identified with the movements of the densified physical vehicle, its shape, and capacity to represent ideas, meanings, and feelings.

  • "O" 1954- multimedia Oprah Winfrey [arranging-diplomatic Anuradha-3] [nīcha-Chandra-yuti-Mangala] an iconic figure in the realms of drama and commercial media-messaging, OW's distinctive maternal appearance made her highly relatable to her audiences. Her heavy-set frame consistent with West African heritage reflected a comfortable image to millions of weight-bearing women. Her protective, emotionalized personality [Chandra] was similarly a touchpoint for her vast, loyal audiences of readers, watchers, and conversation partners. Dharmesha Chandra also confers engagement with the role of belief in the unfoldment of life experiences - a topic at the core of OW's presentations and interviews.

Feels that the densified physical form is a natural means for relating emotionally to others. Sensitive and often successful in mirroring the needs of others. Chandra = sentimental, pre-verbal, and needy. Therefore a final interpretation of Chandra-1 depends upon the graha owned by Chandra, yuti Chandra, etcetera. Familiar Face.

  • POTUS-43 Decision Points 1946- George W. Bush [political-dramatizing Chitra-1] [Somana-yuti-Guru] [Chandra-1 parivartamsha Budha-11] GWB physically resembled his father, who also had [Chandra-Kanya] . Familiar-face comfort, Euro-look comfort, and GWB's constant referal to the emotional experiences of his faith, were all points of emotional connection to the voters.

Another contrast

  • 14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso [Pūrvaphalgunī-2] [Chandra yuti Shukra] . With ruler-of-12 Chandra in lagna, His Holiness is personally emotionally identified with the experience of meditation (12) being a refugee (12) and also his ongoing need to bridge with distant lands in order to protect [Chandra] his wandering people. The addition of diplomatic Shukra in the Dalai Lama's indriya-lagna adds a powerful reinforcement to his peaceful-agreement agenda.

Bhava-1 natural ruler Mangala =

  • blood, birth, animation, vitality, pursuit, movement

  • Prognosis improved if Soma rules 1, 4, 5, 9, 10.

Vitality + familiarity

  • a symbolic personality who represents The psycho-emotional [Chandra] cadence (Mangala, movement) of one's own generation

Exceptionally sensitive to physical movement, blood vitality, and perceived competition

Emotionally most comfortable in environments

ethno-nationalism, tribalism

active physical movement characterized by emotional sensitivity and parental concern

symbolizing a rhythmic, familiar litany of expressive appearances

presence of mother-figures

  • Gospel of Wealth 1835-1919 Andrew Carnegie [defensive Śrāvaṇa-4] formed a close, primary advising relationship with his mother that replaced marriage for him. He married only after his mother died.

When Chandra becomes the Empowered, Transformative Randhresha

  • Methodism 1703-1791 preacher John Wesley [dramatizing-demonstrating Pūrvāṣāḍhā-1] [Chandra-yuti-Ketu] JW generated a massive spiritual-liberation movement in 1700's England-and-America. JW's preaching directed folks to abandon [Ketu] the ritualized [Chandra] legacy class-structure of formal worship in the Established Church (Chandra established). The faithful were told to look within their own heart (The Method) for direct emotional experience [Chandra] of the divine presence. The new doctrine [Dhanus] was preached outdoors, appealing to farm workers and common folk [Chandra] in great numbers. After the Church of England [Shani] refused to train priests to preach this soothing, cost-free, un-costumed [Ketu] new Method, the revolutionary, non-hierarchical Methodist Church was born. (But within a generation, it was boxed into fixed buildings, calendars, rituals, tithing, and moralism. [Chandra-yuti-Ketu] = sensitive, but in a vacuum. Its Non-form can easily be captured by Form.)

Strong emotional attachment to

  • the physical appearance,

  • the paternal grandmother (1 = 4th from 9th)

  • muscular power of movement

  • life force-energy = prana, chi

Prefers a vigorously active, movement-oriented lifestyle.

Needs constant movement, physical vitality and a unique identity.

Helpful placement for dramatists in "emotionally engaged, physically active roles, stage performers

Helps elected politicians by appealing to citizen's feelings of wanting to be protected by a parent-figure. Feelings of patriotism , return to the rhythmic old ways , or defense of national borders or defense of the habitual ethno-national lifestyle

Spouse-lifepartner for Chandra-1

[7th-from-Chandra] becomes radical Bhava-7. Spouse = typically diplomatic, equable, and contractual in fulfillment of agreements. Spouse often functions as an advocate in support of the native.

  • Gospel of Wealth 1835-1919 Andrew Carnegie [Śrāvaṇa-4] AC married only once, at his age 52. A daughter was born when he was 62. His wife was a quiet person, home-loving, and domestic. She carried out the necessary entertaining for his charitable agenda, but she preferred the wifely and motherly roles, and she did not develop her own mission.

Generally a balanced emotional arrangement so long as both partners are explicit in expressing their expectations and needs.

Life-partner-1 is often a professional deal-maker, counselor, attorney, or negotiator.

Chandra-1 produces a strongly affectionate, psycho-emotional response to life. The mate may serve as a corrective balancer who reminds Chandra-1 of diplomatic and social-contractual requirements.

The main polarizing catalysis with Chandra in Tula bhava = one ABSORBS the human fixation with the body and its appearance into one's deeper self. This can create emotional pressure when it is time to attend to matters of higher identity.

Chandra-1 = self-concerned, sensitive

  • supersensitive emotional responsiveness to the immediate environment.

  • Extremely sensitive to the unmet needs of others.

Whether male or female, Chandra-1 = parent-figure in their organization or society.

Articulator of the collective unconscious. Feelings run powerfully through The earthen body , while The earthen body receives constant emotional feedback from others in the environment.

  • one would be happy to live near water, ideally the ocean but also large lakes which have their own inner tides are hospitable places

  • water be a healing substance because water can absorb some of the excess energy these natives pick up like sponges from everyone around them.

If Chandra-yuti-Shani = repressed by the strict conventionalism [Shani] of the mother [Chandra]

SHANI ASHTAMSHA = revolutionary transforming 8th-from-Chandra

See more details of this powerful transit at Shani ashtamsha

Once every 29-31 years, enduring for a period of 2.3 years

Shani transits the 8th bhava counted from Chandra lagna

  • Shani enters a bhava-8 of Mangala = enemy of Shani, which forecasts considerable difficulty as anti-movement Shani combats pro-movement Kuja

  • Shani ashtamsha occurring in randrasthāna can be a struggle for continuation of life, but typically one succeeds in the heroic effort to rejuvenate.

  • Intense and often frightening healings may involve surgery, psychiatric intervention, death of spouse, divorce and remarriage, or other modalities of identity recovery that force adeeper understanding of the rejuvenating cycle of death-and-rebirth.

Final outcome depends significantly upon:

  1. current Vimshottari dasha bhukti period(s)

  2. the presence of graha within bhava-8

  3. any graha yuti Chandra

  4. possible intensification when natal Shani-bhava-1

Masculine nativity Chandra-1

  • special effects and conditions

Masculine nativity generally has emotionally intense relationships with maternal figures. He is socially identified with the concerns of land, home, family and children.

  • His mother is the primary adult role model in his life.

  • Mother is usually a specific director of his lifestyle.

If the nativity is benevolent overall, he may be surrounded by womenfolk who can off-load some of the excess emotional energy he acquires as he reflects the unmet needs and desires of the people around him.

If the nativity indicates unacknowledged emotional conflict [such as a nishturabashi yoga or other repression of Chandra] then an outwardly capable personality may be nonethless controlled by women or consumed by the unmet emotional needs of others. The Learning Pathway may feature an inordinate struggle with either guilt or grief, usually guilt.

Can signify a martyr to family needs, or Narcissus consumed with his own wavering image in the pond.

Feminine Nativity Chandra-1

  • special effects and conditions

Feminine Nativity = constitutionally better designed to process emotions.

  • Similar to the male with this placement of Chandra in the vitalizing indriya-lagna, the female may be consumed by the unmet emotional needs of others.

depending on Soma's overall condition, Feminine Nativity may be deeply identified with her mother.

She may also position herself socially as a"woman's woman"as an advocate for parenting and an emotional resource for women's concerns.

Physical body tends to"retain water" when the body's fluid pumping system is overstressed.

Typically, not a swimmer - does not like to be immersed in water but may be deeply soothed by walking along the ocean beaches, estuaries, and continental coastlines.

Huge healer, loves to protect children and animals, but also surprisingly self-concerned with physical appearance.

  • This moon does not give confidence, but rather deepens the feminine nativity's sense of need to obtain protection for herself.

Must be carefully managed to locate the source of spiritual nurturing within the Self and avoid self-obsession.

[6th-from-Chandra] * repeating, rhythmic patterns of challenge to equanimity, arising from agents of animosity, accusation, gossip, debt, or disease

  • Disagreement, disappointment, emotional servitude

the most difficult emotions for the Chandra-1 nativity = the feelings which emit from 6th-from-1st = Ripu bhava-6

Unless there are strong graha in 6, one may feel emotionally unsuited to the task of engaging in ongoing argument or emotionally conflicted relationships.

emotionally enslaved to a cycle of creation and dissolution of relationships (12th from 7th)

If Chandra is strong, resilience is granted to deal with long-term, deep-seated conflict

  • confessional telejournalist * "O" 1954- multimedia Oprah Winfrey = rogesha-6 Mangala in lagna

Depending on conditions in Bhava-6, affective difficulties due to disagreements with servants and employees, members of the working class and the underclass, police and military officers, physicians and druggists.

giving more than one receives

  • The lord of Ripu produces emotional servitude () during its Vimshottari period.

Servants or employees,

  • including workers holding lower ranks in one's professional hierarchy = particular agents of that homework-problem of disappointment or exploitative overwork. Barring difficult graha in Bhava-6, the main problems come from unreliable workers, criminals, and police.

Medicine and physicians

  • iatrogenic disease

  • emotional reaction to medications

QUOTATION Das / Bepin Behari commentary on Chandra-1

" You will be gregarious and will want everyone to appreciate you. ...

especially true when the Moon is in female signs.

  • You can suffer from somnambulism, or sleepwalking . Another way to take this is that you are sleepwalking sometimes during the daydreaming in life.

You take your mental life very seriously .

  • Handsome but fickle.

  • Scared of water or sickness.

  • In your 15th year, you can travel much.

In general context, it is stated that the Moon in the ascendant can make one cunning, short-statured, valorous, happy, likes nice milk-based foods,

  • interested in astrology,

  • famous in the later part of life,

  • subject to perils,

and disbelieving of your spouse." [end quote]
