  • Metonymic Icon

  • Symbolic Leader-Protector

  • orderly flow of socially stewarding, caretaking laws

  • emotionally familiar [Chandra] to the public (10)

  • needs public rules of order

  • Caretaker patterns focus on the organization, institution, hierarchical order

  • represents a parental, emotional sensitivity to society's need

  • comfortably settled, nested, habituated to familiar rhythms of public reputation, leadership responsibility, social rank, governance, elite positions.

  • Mother seeks to maintain her Reputation and Social Status

Chandra-10 is often a mark of the Two-Person Career

10th-from-7th-from-Chandra (lifepartner) = bhava-1

The spouse's professional identity is often inextricably insinuated into one's-own-self

bhava-3 administration, process management, writing, cohort, retinue, ensemble, siblings = the conflicted 6th-from-Chandra-10

Vimshottari-dasha, bhukti of ruler-of-3, can produce an emotionally-charged argument, health challenge, or criminal accusation in the form of a collaboration or documentation conflict. The culprit may also be a sibling-cousin, manager, reporter, a communication, or member of the team. Outcomes depends on the strength of the 3rd-lord.

Example: Announcement causing public disgrace

[Pūrvāṣāḍhā-Shani-Dhanus] +[ Shani in bhava-2] + [Shani-yuti-Guru]

  • Japan-Emperor1901-1989 Showa Hirohito (age 44) As the supreme leader of those who considered themselves to be an unstoppable solar race of divinely appointed world masters, on 15-Aug-1945 Emperor Hirohito had to deliver a military surrender announcement [3] on Japan radio [3] The message [3] conceded Japan's loss of the WW-2 conflict, and accepted the terms of the unthinkable defeat * Guru-Shani bhukti * Shani activates 3-announcements

To feel secure, Chandra-10 typically needs an inflow of public recognition and outflow of symbolic social caretaking.

Whenever Chandra occupies bhava-10, the indriya-lagna is then located in the defensive, culturally-rooted, seasonal-calendar, routinized, patriotic, ethno-nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning 4th-from-Chandra.

Soma-10 feels a special affinity for 4th-matters such as transportation, land use, property ownership-stewardship , farming, fishing, shipping, foundational culture, schooling, and habitual ways of life.

Chandra-10 needs to be in policy-making, governance and regulatory environments. Chandra-10 is particularly sensitive to the needs of executives, elite leaders, and hierarchical, pyramid-shaped social structures. This angle is a signature of the roots-maintaining environmentalist patriot, and is often found in legislative-protective roles.

Professor Chandra's special area of instruction is emotional sensitivity, absorption of feelings from the local environment, and emotional reaction or response.

Chandra-10 is especially sensitive to the fluctuation of emotion within the ranks of leadership and institutional governance. Somana in karma-sthana grants a special affinity for sympathetic vibration with the class of decision-makers and regulators of the social order. The public behavior (10) is typically lawful and orderly, conforming to the customary expectations of the ethnicity.

The parents [Chandra] often hold a distinguished rank within the local environment of one's childhood. (Albeit, the parents may exemplify big-fish-in-a-small-pond syndrome, perhaps only petty leaders but locally recognized)

Because the parents are accustomed to conducting their family life under pubic scrutiny, one receives early habituation to the domestic routines and familiar patterns of social responsibility and decorum.

  • POTUS-06 American System 1767-1868 John Quincy Adams [Chandra-yuti-Rahu] Both of JQA's parents, particularly his mother, were high-visibility leaders of colonial American society

  • Bello Gallico 100-44 BCE Julius Caesar + [Surya-yuti-Shukra] Caesar's mother hailed from an aristocratic family. She schooled him in leadership and customary public behavior.

Definitive influence of Graha-yuti-Chandra

Anything which may be said of Professor Candescent 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-yuti-Kuja * Emotionally competitive
  2. Somana-yuti-Budha * Emotionally communicative
  3. Somana-yuti-Guru * Emotionally effusive* Emotionally expansive
  4. Somana-yuti-Shukra * Emotionally indulgent
  5. Somana-yuti- Shani * Emotionally constricted
  6. Somana-yuti-Surya * Emotionally entitled * Emotionally self-focused
  7. Somana-yuti-Rahu * Emotionally expedient
  8. Somana-yuti-Ketu * Emotionally scattered

Comforted by Constitutional Order

Chandra-10 needs constant emotional confirmation of the professional and leadership social roles. One may be emotionally identified with social position, duties and rank. Typically, mom = a high-responsibility iconic figure, organizational director,or agent of social ordering.

Need to Lead

Chandra-10 feels a deep sense of grounding and protective safety in elite governance environments, such as corporate director meetings and executive office functions.

More important than the specific rank or nature of the duties however is the very fact of broad social recognition. High public visibility is the key to personal emotional stability. Leadership roles imbue Chandra-10 with a sense of belonging.

Reflecting Public Sensitivities

Emotional nourishment is gained from holding iconic roles not only in governance but also in culturally symbolic, figurehead type of positions. Chandra-10 serves an a lunar reflector, softly relaying the emotions of the public.

One is generally well-liked, regardless of fluctuating conditions.

Even an otherwise unsuited individual with empowered Chandra-10 may provide a feeling of patriotic security to the trusting plebescite.

The Chandra-10 public figure is often parental-maternal and distinguished by qualities of patriotism, protectionism, environmentalism, locality, folk-customary rhythms, deep roots in the place of birth, sensitivity and gentleness.

  • Hugging Saint 1953- Ammachi of Kerala = [uttama Krittika Chandra in bhava-10 Vrishabha]. +++ Chandra Mahadasha = 1955-1965, her age 3-13. The maternal leadership style = extremely strong. Chandra in high-visibility bhava-10; very well known sympathetic familiar face . Sources of leadership strength include meditative practices and clandestine information Chandra activates-12 . Famous for leadership initiatives to provide shelter and secure livelihoods to the poorest citizens, who she sees as her children.

  • Zanjeer 1942- drama-politics Amitabh Bachchan

Chandra-10 is nourished not so much by popularity or control, but rather by the dignity of recognized social position. One strives intuitively to attain the highest status available in one's profession; and once established there, to maintain public acknowledgement of importance of one's contribution to the integrity of the social order.

The Fishbowl

Known to the public as a sentimental, caring personality with a broad social perspective. For Chandra-10, much of life's normal daily activity, that would be otherwise more personal in nature, may be much more visible to the public eye. The minutia of one's daily life is often cast high upon the social viewing screen.

Feels most comfortable when engaged in legislative, regulatory or governance work -- or when working to fulfill social expectations.


Matrikaraka Chandra-10 indicates that the mother-figure has been demonstrating organizational leadership roles during the childhood, preparing one to comfortably and naturally [Chandra] assume responsibilities for taking iconic roles within the social order (10).

  • POTUS-06 American System 1767-1868 John Quincy Adams [Chandra-yuti-Rahu] * JQA's mother POTUS-pair-02 Letters 1744-1818 Abigail Adams was an exceptionally influential member of the leadership cohort "Founding Fathers" who structured the revolutionary New Republic.

  • Microsoft 1955- philanthropist Bill Gates * WHG mother was a respected figure in board-of-directors roles with several high profile national charitable organizations. Mom served in executive capacity with CEO and CFO figures of many of the leading corporations. Meena-Chandra charity.

  • UK-Prince 1948- Charles of Wales [Chandra-yuti-Rahu] * his mother UK-Queen 1926- Elizabeth-2 maintained a high-visibility social role from her early 20's.


Chandra-10 is a distinctive placement for career recognition. 10th-from-Chandra becomes radical bhava-7 10th-from-10th representing advising, counsel, and peer relationships which form the basis of most public careers.

If Chandra gains other strengths such as lagnesha or ruler of 10 or ruler of 7, additional strengths can increase Chandra's rhythmic impetus toward high-visibility, parental, advising, and protective roles in executive command positions.

One may feel exceptionally sensitive to designations of social class, ranking, status hierarchies, and perceived legitimacy of institutional authority.

The soft glow of familiar-face Chandra-10 = highly recognizable at the bright peak of the social pyramid; a public icon.

A man or woman "of the people" Familiar [Chandra] to the public (10)

  • Chandra in svabhava of Shani

Emotional need to rise to a position of high visibility. Often seeks a role in organizational or institutional governance.

One achieves a familiar iconic presence in at the top levels of society and becomes well known. Typically, the public expresses respect and recognition toward the native, no matter the specific profession or behavior.

One may rise to high-visibility elite profile in nearly any sort of career, but due to Chandra's quality of emotional familiarityChandra-10 is most common in politics and drama.

Especially helpful for women in high-visibility careers

  • Hugging Saint 1953- Ammachi of Kerala

Attached to the mother-in-law (10 = 4th from 7th).

Chandra in karma-bhava, 7th from Soma's natural residence bandhu bhava, is generally advantageous for leadership roles and for the purpose of forming alliance with persons of social rank.

Chandra-10 needs to achieve an admired or respectable position in some social hierarchy. The natural affinity for other persons who also aspire to highly visible positions often aids one's profession al ascent.

One may have an especially strong ability to represent the folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms of a people via one's relationship (7) to the folkways basis of the nation-state or the ethnic people.

Metonymic personality. One feels socially recognized.

Chandra-10 nearly always results in the person becoming well-known familiar to the people.

Frequently the reputation is quite global, extending to many lands and nations.

  • Iran-Shah 1919-1980 Aryamehr Mohammad Reza Pahlavi ruled for nearly 40 years as personality familiar to both East and West. His peak recognition occurred due to revolutionary overthrow = Vṛścika (revolution) Chandra-yuti-Rahu

  • Microsoft 1955- philanthropist Bill Gates remains a cultural metonym representing his company Microsoft and signifying the computer revolution in general.

Psychically absorbs and internalizes the class hierarchy , the social ranking behaviors, and the structure of government. r eflects the external components of social order and rule of statutory law which are present within one's environment. Makes a leader but not always a legislator. Often a highly iconic personality.

Material Gains are somewhat reduced despite high public visibility , and the social network is narrowed leaving relatively few trustworthy friends : 10th = 12th-from-11th.

Chandra-10 reflects the structure of society, brighter or dimmer mirroring according to the fullness of the Moon, and proximity to Rahu. Chandra-yuti-Rahu-10 becomes exceedingly well known.

Chandra-10 does not create [Surya] governance but simply reflects [Chandra] the existing social-hierarchical structure . (May also create structures if Surya also in 10.)

Other may assume that one is the chief decision-maker - but Chandra-10 only reflects the social law, does not create it

In high office, Chandra alone (no other graha in 10) is sensitive to the needs of other regulators and may become a delegator to avoid taking too much power.

Chandra-10 has much less actual governing power than it appears, unless Chandra = with another more direct-action graha such as Surya or Mangala

Especially suited to reflecting conditions of age, maturity, sobriety , conformity, leadership, Time systems, social responsibility and respect for law .

Emotionally most comfortable in a high-visibilitysocial leadership role, associated with the most prominent people, visions, or purposes in the environment.

The role may be governing, reflective, or representational. Even if Chandra-10 participates in direct governance (if other graha occupy 10) one's visage is distinctively symbolic.

Chandra-10 becomes exceptionally well-known. It is generally not possible to live a private or secluded life. The public tends to psychologically project a broad range of emotional reactions upon the native . Thus Chandra-10 may be seen as a social catalyst = one who provokes a reaction which causes social change. One becomes a parent figure or represents ideas like patriotism or shelter.

  • Strong emotional attachment to high-visibility public figures, especially those in top government roles;

  • attached to professional credibility, public renown, and the father's family name (2nd from 9th).

Emotional need for public dignity, honor, and respectable roles.

Chandra-10 has iconic powers to represent a movement, a cause, or an entire civilization to the public view. Both the native and one's mother become well-known to the public. Good reputation. Distinguished in public service.

If Chandra-10 is well-disposed, one may be born into a public-leadership family; not necessarily financially privileged but often quite well-known. andra in karma-bhava = one ABSORBS public's collective projected expectations into oneself.

Emotionally this can create pressure, as Chandra-10 may not be able to find"down time". Family life may be compromised by public duties.

  • Hugging Saint 1953- Ammachi of Kerala is able to conduct a worldwide healing mission with great success; however, she has no immediate parenting responsibilities nor family chores.

  • CNN buffalo lands 1938- Ted Turner [Chandra-yuti-Rahu] compounded by Ketu-4, was an absentee father nearly always away from home

The man will have a steady, supportive relationship with his mother who provides leadership modeling and imbues the child with a sense of social responsibility. one's emotional relationships with women have a strong component of duty and public behavior. (This position of the moon is a strong divorce preventative, even when the marriage is unhappy.)

A woman also receives leadership instruction from her mother, who will have a higher station in life or heavier social responsibilities. Emotional support from the parents may be reduced, showing their preference for delivering training toward higher social dignity.

native is socially visible, well-known and generally well-liked as people feel familiarity with one's image. A good predictor of fame and public personality, may become a"household name".

Maternal caretaking and nurturing qualities injected into the public role. Special ability to deal with mothers and children, family life, safety and security.

Signifies engagement in commerce and occupations connected to water. Naturally inclined toward caring and counseling professions, if Chandra is well. All public service professions are supported.

Mother * Parents

The parents, particularly the mother, are well-known in their local environment and often social or professional leaders in their town.

Chandra-10 = raised in a home-based [Chandra] lifestyle which emphasizes "good behavior", social responsibilities (10) prominent public roles, and the importance of public reputation.

Parents have high visibility in the area of settlement, and may hold executive positions in government or corporate institutions.

High visibility in career and recognition for professional leadership is assured for the native, unless Chandra is afflicted.

  • UK-Queen 1926- Elizabeth-2 the mother of UK-Prince 1948- Charles of Wales is certainly well known = her own Chandra-7 in 10th-from-10th. Chandra-yuti-Rahu-10 in UK-Prince 1948- Charles' nativity causes some affliction to the public reputation. Charles suffered a very high profile public shaming-scandal during his divorce from UK-Princess of Wales 1961-1997 Diana Spencer. His mother also endured afflicted public image via the behavior problems of her younger sister, and speculation regarding the fidelity of her husband. However, the Karkata-Chandra is very strong in 10 and the affliction is not crippling.

  • The mother of Microsoft 1955- philanthropist Bill Gates was a highly respected figure in elite philanthropic circles of Seattle. WHG was raised in a home which emphasized social dignity and public obligations. As his mother spoke at her son's wedding ceremony, addressing Bill's new wife Melinda "to whom much is given, from them much is expected."

Disagreement, disappointment, emotional servitude = 6th-from-Chandra

When Chandra occupies Bhava-10, the most difficult house emotionally becomes 6th-from-10th = Sahaja bhava.

Depending on conditions in Bhava-3, there may be affective planned misalignments requiring realignment attention due to disagreements with the siblings and team-mates; regarding matters of writing and publications; business administration such as management tasks, documentation and reports, sales, advertising, marketing; the culture of group-cooperation, meetings; messaging, memoranda, schedules calendars and all of the minutiae of the daily communications. Teamwork can feel unbalanced to the point of being exploitative.

During its Vimshottari period, the vikramapathi ruler of 3 may produce emotional servitude experienced as a consistent, ongoing state of giving more than one receives. Strong and supportive graha residing in bhava-3 may reverse or mitigate this trend.

Siblings, cousins, team-mates, and the office work-group tend to be the particular agents of disagreement, disappointed expectations, exploitative overwork, or in extreme case acts of betrayal. Writing projects and publications, as well as the immediate younger sibling, and people performing non-executive administrative roles generally, may continue to demand more in service than they reward.


Documentation, team-process, management tasks, announcements and publications as well as mentality, siblings and cousins = Bhava-3 = 6th-from-Chandra;

One may experience a persistent feeling of unbalanced discomfort with small groups, writers, publishers, and messaging media such as advertising or computer programming or cinema scripts.

  • Microsoft 1955- philanthropist Bill Gates has a strong Guru-Simha in bhava-3,++ Surya ruler of 3 resides in Thula 3rd-from-3rd. This hospitable arrangement suggests that WHG would experience a wide diversity of meetings (3) work on numerous teams (3) + produce a plethora of documentations, reports, and announcements. The graha are approriately aligned regarding matters of bhava-3 = buoyant mental health with expansive [Guru] planning (3). Yet even with the confidence imbued by a generous resident Guru ++ Guru's ruler Surya-5 further supporting the multiple management processes, there may be moments during any bhukti of [nīcha] Surya that the team misinterprets, disappoints, or falls below expectations.

Depending naturally on graha residing in bhava-3, one may feel during periods of the ruler of 6th-from-Chandra that one is emotionally unsuited to carrying out the requirements of basic commercial administration such as office work. Depression if noticed is generally temporary, but can be expected to recur with each bhukti of the ruler. One may even feel "enslaved to business" and long for the freedom of a non-mercantile life. However, the mind can be expected to clear when the bhukti of the ruler of 3 is finished.

QUOTATION Das / Bepin Behari comments upon Chandra-10:

BPL: 10th = shad-ashtaka 6/8 from putrasthana-5. Chandra in 10 indicates some disagreeable friction with the children, particularly the eldest child. Often the Chandra-10 native feels (Soma) that the child is not aligned (6/8) with the cultural roots, rhythms, and habits of the traditional culture. Consider any graha located in bhava-5 to provide more details of this narrative between parent [Chandra] and child.

If a second marriage is in the script, similar disagreeable friction may be anticipated in regard to step-children acquired via the second lifepartnership. Second alliance = 2nd-from-Chandra = bhava-11 life-partner-2. 5th-from-11 children of the 2nd life partner = bhava-3. Sahaja-bhava-3 is an upachaya sthana which does improve over time. However, bhava-3 is located on a shad-ashtaka 6/8 angle from the lagna of Chandra-10. Therefore, the children of the second life-mate (if any) will tend to have managerial, discursive, conversational, communicative behaviors that seem adversarial to the decisive, regulatory, executive"big picture" Chandra-10.

For example, in my files, a corporate executive of high stature who married an old friend (11) and community activist (11). Her eldest child is a"talk therapist" psychologist who engages in repetitive narrative process. The Chandra-10 native is often frustrated with this (adult) step-child's tolerance for talk that does not lead to action. Being both well-educated, they have"agreed to disagree" but the tension remains palpable.

"This placement produces variable fame, changes in position, tremendous responsibilities , and relationships in which coolness of mind is essential.

  • You are a source of social inspiration and receive a great deal of praise.

  • You tend to be devoted to your father and family.

  • You are smart, contented and quiet.

You get wealth and recognition from the state.

  • Reputed and bold.

  • Contented with small gains.

  • Wealth brightens your personality.

  • Sober and noble.

  • Possible gain from women of high family.

  • You tend to be pious.

  • Support from friends and relations.

  • Gain from the leaders or people of equally high status.

  • Malice with the eldest child.

You are ambitious and so acquire prominent positions .

  • Fluctuating and changing business employment from seafaring, traveling-hawking goods to advertising, on the largest scale, rare and novel items.

  • You will suffer little grief, be dutiful , successful in your undertakings,

affluent, pure, very strong, valorous and charitable."


In all your designs you will succeed, and light will shine on your path.
