Spring Blossoms in Central Park, New York City

emotional grounding through traditional lineage values-fulfillment

familiar flow of story-telling

familiar [Chandra] to the historical treasurers (2)

voice, face, sight, song

sensitive to legacy knowledge

seeks security from treasuries, hoarding, collections, banking, genetic line

comfortably settled, nested, habituated to familiar rhythms of food, storage, things kept, collections, conservation, history, banking, family lineage, songs, stories, languages, face.

Chandra-2 feels comfortable in family settings, where the genetic lineage is shared, where the old stories are often retold, where history is repeated, where the habitual rhythms of the old way of life are continued.

Lineage of Mother

* comfort in collections * familiar with history * needs to tell stories * accustomed to storage * nourished by heritage knowledge * settled into the rhythm of languages * feels the repeating pulse of inventory counting * emotionally attuned to accumulated values * calmed by conservation * undulating voice * intuits the incantations * acculturated to sound-speech-song * mother may be a traditionalist, historian, librarian, singer

bhava-7 = legal settlement, trusts, agreements, peerage, equity = the conflicted 6th-from-Chandra-2

Vimshottari-dasha, bhukti of ruler-of-7, can produce an emotionally-charged argument, health challenge, or criminal accusation in the form of a contractual conflict. The culprit may be a spouse, a business partner, an attorney-advocate, or a judge. Outcomes depends on the strength of the yuvati-pati.

To feel secure, Chandra-2 typically needs inflow of food, sound, and knowledge + outflow of traditional values preservation.

When Chandra occupies bhava-2 * the indriya-lagna is located in 12th-from-Chandra. One enjoys a natural affinity for emotional comforts provided by 12th-from matters such as distant worlds, sanctuary spaces, enclosures, and retreat into invisibility. Chandra-2 needs to contain, collect and conserve.

Matrikaraka Chandra suggests that the mother-figure typically has a dominant role in defining the family traditions. Mother is financially focused and a conserver of lineage values-fulfillment .

Emotionally attached to the family lineage and its historical values of knowledge, wealth, speech and song

Chandra in bhava-2 contributes to the perception that the overall culture of one's family heritage is oriented to home, roots, routines, nurturance, protection, familiar rhythms, and comforting routines. The family lineage may contain gardeners, farmers, fisher-folk, care-givers, shelter-providers, and land-defending patriots.

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

Chandra-2 is especially sensitive to the fluctuation of voice, face, and eye-movement Soothing Somana-2 deeply feels the need for familiar, rhythmic routines in matters of storage, banking, conservation of values, and tale-telling, allowing the flow of history and lineage values-fulfillment through the family line.

The parents are often involved in banking and storage, gathering and collecting. The child becomes acclimatized to the customary patterns of hoarding and herding. One becomes comfortable with the tasks of values containment from an early age.

  • China-Dictator 1893-1976 Mao Zedong * his parents were agents of storage. His dad would buy up grain and store it until a shortage occurred, then sell high.

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 * Emotionally constricted
  6. Somana + Surya * Emotionally entitled * Emotionally self-focused
  7. Somana + Rahu * Emotionally expedient
  8. Somana + Ketu * Emotionally scattered

Comforted by Collections

Chandra-2 is a story-teller and a storage agent. One needs to learn and retell the history of the family lineage * kutumbha. Again and again, Soothing Somana-2 tells the stories and sings the songs.

Chandra-2 speaks, sings, recounts the poems, songs and stories of a people. Chandra-2 conserves the legacy and values of a lineage: treasuries of mythical and historical knowledge, herds of genetically kept animals, hoards of capital wealth, databases, libraries, warehouses. Chandra is a collector and a keeper.

Chandra-2 needs constant engagement with the family of origin, with language, historical knowledge, and with financial wealth treasuries.

Chandra-2 is often known as the "anchor of the family". Chandra-2 in any rashi is emotionally rooted in matters of genetics and family lineage. Yet, any additional graha in bhava-2 can complicate this orientation. Particularly Shani creating a nishturabashi yoga can freeze the family flow.

However, barring the influence of other graha in bhava-2, Chandra-2 = generally healthy financially privileged and wise, with intuitive knowledge of plants of the fields and forests, an understanding of lands and landscapes, herd animals (2), banking, warehousing, food and other collectibles, storage and restoration (including restaurants).

A pleasant and artistic person, often blessed with capital acquisitions, who enjoys the pleasures of earthly life.

Bhava-2 = food, mouth, voice, song, speech, family, treasuries of valuable goods and conserved knowledge, dematerialization

Often concerned with Books and Songs as devices for storing recorded lineage history knowledge

Exceptionally sensitive to accumulated values, family history, and perceived wealth

Chandra in Shukra's natural domain

Speech that is comfortable and familiar [Chandra] to the people

  • UK-PM Finest Hour 1874-1965 Winston Churchill = journalist and historian, extraordinary radio speeches and newspaper articles = familiar [Chandra] accessible, sonorous, and vivid style (Purvaphalguni).

Professor Shukra who is the natural owner of classroom-2, dislikes His tenant Lord Soma; Shukra sees Chandra as an enemy

a sensual mouth

[Chandra in classroom-3] comfortable with cohort * familiar with messaging * needs to communicate = 11th from Soma's natural residence bandhu bhava, is usually advantageous for matters of social networking, gains of income especially in regard to schools, landed properties and vehicles.

The emotional relationship to the family history, one's sense of one's genetic predispositions and precedent in the family line, feels supportive of one's material goals (11).

Emotionally most comfortable in environments:

transmission of tradition

historic values of an ethnicity = financial, nutritional, religious, cultural, artistic, musical

historic preservation

the family history = farmers, fishers, people of place, deeply rooted in local folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms, rituals

collections, gathering of assets, storage

singing, songs, traveling bards who transmit historical tales

spokesperson or "mouth" for elemental nature spirits

wealth, banking, sensual luxury

Wants to be surrounded by collections of natural resources: art, music, plants, trees, natural products such as wine and perfume, food and wood, fine textiles. Immersed in historical lineage knowledge

  1. In a rashi of Surya, history of the father

  2. In a rashi of Chandra, history of the land and culture, the family, the ocean

  3. In a rashi of Mangala, history of warfare, of competition, of birth *

  4. In a rashi of Budha, history of information management, of commerce, of the siblings

  5. In a rashi of Guru, historical teachings, history of beliefs, doctrine and preachings

  6. In a rashi of Shukra, historical art and design

  7. In a rashi of Shani, historical structures, stones, wood, bones

Strong emotional attachment to the family history, the mother's elder siblings (11th from 4th), and the legacy values of one's people .

Needs connection to The hoards.

Needs historical memory

Needs to serve as a vessel for the expression (mouthpiece) of stored wealth.

The main polarizing catalysis that is associated with caretaking Chandra in dhana bhava = one ABSORBS the human quest for acquisition and storage into oneself.

This can create emotional pressure to retain control , exactly when it is time to liberate, release and let go.

The family = kutumbha, 2 = strongly identified with large material or historical values collections, luxuries (Luxmi-Shukra), business finances, lineage associations such as bloodlines, and stored food, art, knowledge, or money.

Needs to see oneself as a bearer of traditional ethnic values esp. of art, song, ancient knowledge, wealth and beauty.

Deep emotional engagement with the history of one's people (conscious or unconscious).

Chandra-2 sees oneself as a historical person , someone with a role to play in the development of a bloodline or values tradition.

Emotional need to store, accumulate, conserve, and perpetuate the lineage values-fulfillment and knowledge of one's people.

Soothing Somana-2 Koza-bhava = Family Lineage History

FAMILY heritage anchors the emotional experience

Emotionally conservative, stays within the limits set by the upbringing and expectations of the family. One identifies emotionally with the family business, or feels a strong tie to a historic lineage descending through the family.

"Family" is not always biological or adoptive. Often, the core protectors are not genetically or culturally defined. Family can be redefined as the people who take care of me in contexts such as a religious fellowship or a political machine.

Mother = a carrier of traditional values. She is the family historian. Mother = conservative by nature; dedicated to the acquisition of treasury and retention of lineage cultural values. Mother is often distinctively concerned with money and storage.

Since dhana bhava = 6th-from-9th, when Chandra occupies classroom-2 there is a natural conflict between one's father and one's mother - due mainly to the mother's material acquisitiveness and staunch conservatism. The mother may appear stubborn and backward-looking to the father - especially if classroom-9 is energized.

Naturally, the drishti of Shani, Kuja, Rahu-Ketu or a dusthamsha lord upon Soma will alter this favorable prognosis.

Male Chandra-2 seeks a mate with his mother's conservative, family-based values.

Male Soothing Somana-2 imitates the mother's traditional, materially acquisitive, nature-conservationist emotional orientation.

6th-from-Chandra * Disagreement, disappointment, emotional servitude related to matters of bhava-7


When Soothing Somana occupies classroom-2, emotional growth-challenges often arise from 6th-from-Chandra = the partnership environment (7).

6th-from-Chandra in bhava-2 = yuvati bhava. The first marriage, particularly the public presentation of the first marriage, is likely to become a topic of emotional conflict due to the geometry of bhava-7 = 6th-from-Chandra.

The public facade of the second marriage is typically easier to maintain, but much depends upon graha in 3.

Depending on conditions in classroom-7, expect affective difficulties due to disagreements with the spouse and equal partners in alliances. During its Vimshottari bhukti, theb yuvati-pati may produce emotional servitude = giving more than one receives.

  • Lifepartner may supply drama of disappointment or exploitative overwork.

  • Regardless of the number of marriages, the spouse and the marriage contract mayl continue to demand more in service than they reward.

  • The first marriage can be particularly problematic because bhava-7 = 6th-from-Chandra while also 7th-from-Chandra = bhava-8 secrecy, non-disclosure, masking.

The partnership and agreements house = classroom-7 = 6th-from-Chandra;

naturally marital discomfort can arise.

  • Unless there are strong graha in 7, one may feel emotionally unsuited to the task of maintaining a harmonious marriage or other partnership.

  • As a result one may feel emotionally enslaved to life's primary alliance or union .

6ChandraWhiteMoon.pngQUOTATION from Das / Bepin Behari commentary WRT Chandra-2

"makes you very talkative, prosperous, of sound body and have a very charming personality.

  • Romantic, finds pleasure in other peoples company - ignoring your own spouse and family.

  • The 2nd house stands for wealth, finance and hereditary position.

Full Moon in this house bestows you with promising progeny and wealth; but, if it is dark or feeble, you may stammer, be poor and unwise.

Sensitive to the changing Moon.

You have many friends and are soft spoken.

You may suffer from poor digestion and loss of appetite.

Dark or feeble Moon, despite benefic aspect,

  • causes loss of acquired or inherited property, and obstructs earning and acquisition of wealth any further.

You will enjoy incomparable happiness and friends and will be wealthy.

You will be plentiful in wealth and grains, be physically sound, spend your time joyously with the opposite sex, famous, and wise.

  • You may lose money on account of your sisters and daughters."
