~~ Maya Angelou

"Millions of our citizens do not now have a full measure of opportunity to achieve and to enjoy good health.

Millions do not now have protection or security against the economic effects of sickness.

And the time has now arrived for action to help them attain that opportunity and to help them get that protection."

Chandra-4 deep comfort and emotional attachment to Place, roots, land-near-water

Chandra-4 in any rashi prefers to stay close to home.

  • Chandra in classroom-4 suggests an at-home gardener, housewife, environmentalist, local-culture supporter, dedicated parent, protectionist. Ethno-nationalist. Old rhythms, old seasons, old worship rituals.

bhava-9 = father, principled beliefs, paradigmatic convictions, catechesis, sangha = the conflicted 6th-from-Chandra-4

Vimshottari-dasha, bhukti of ruler-of-9, can produce an emotionally-charged argument, health challenge, or criminal accusation in the form of a doctrinal conflict. The culprit may be a father-figure or a religious authority. Outcomes depends on the strength of the dharmesha.

To feel secure, dik-bala Chandra-4 typically needs an inflow of nourishment and outflow of customary behavioral routine.

When Chandra occupies bhava-4 * the indriya-lagna = 10th-from-Chandra. One has a special affinity for 10th-matters such as institutional governance, large corporations and organizations, and maintenance of the social order.

Chandra-4 is deeply patriotic, and tends to stay close to the birth place or similar customary ethnic settlements. When grounded into the rhythms of the local culture, this placement contains the signature of local policy-making and regulation, often found in director-executor roles for land use, transportation, schooling and housing. Naturally if Chandra is impacted by other graha, receptive and reflective Moon-Mens may produce notable effects of the impacting graha.

Chandra-4 receives dik-bala * weight of dignity. When Moon-Mens is born into the foundational 4th bhava, there are benefits accrued from the emotional continuity and stability of having a mother who is an anchoring and supportive presence.

Basic Schooling


The parents are often stay-at-home figures within their own local culture. Parents are Typically, aligned with the cultural roots of the local environments, and they role-model the customary ethnic patterns. The child is acclimatized early to the routines and rhythms of a people who are settled in their place, and one becomes comfortable holding foundational, schooling, property-owning, shelter-building roles from an early age.

  • Earth Changes 1877-1945 Edgar Cayce [Bharani-1] EC's parents were farmers, and his grandfather was a reputed dowser [Chandra-4, underground water]

  • POTUS-pair-43 School Libraries 1946- Laura Welch Bush * Chandra-4 parivartamsha Shani-9 * her parents owned a real-estate construction business

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

Comforted by Caretaking

Chandra-4 needs property ownership, house and home, schooling and caretaking, fences and boundaries, vehicles and licenses and deeds of title.

Needs to stay close to home, put down roots and establish the residency. Often prefers to remain in the place of birth. May briefly leave the home turf for limited lunar purposes such as schooling or military service, but generally returns to the roots as soon as possible.

Chandra receives dik-bala in bhava-4, where Somana's local roots go deep into the earth.

However, naturally if Chandra-yuti-Rahu, one may be more prone to mixing with unfamiliar folks and their ways.

  • Esoteric Astrology 1925-2005 Jyotishavidya Bepin Behari * Chandra-yuti-Rahu * Aśleṣa Chandra-Karkata. Although Shri Behari spent many years abroad in the service of his government, his most lasting literary contribution = his English-language interpretation of a deeply culturally rooted knowledge of Jyotishavidya. Rahu the Mix-Master motivated Behari's mixing of traditional knowledge inventories, languages and ethnicities.

Deeply patriotic.

Sentimental attachment to the parents. A localized personality, deeply related to ancestral roots, daily routines, farming, fishing, nourishment, and the rhythms of ethnic life.

Needs a great rutted-routine of tidal pace in the daily habit: regular meals, seasonal festivals, predictable calendar, daily prayers, ritualized relationships.

"Bloom where you're planted"

Loves gardens

Mother may be a homemaker, schoolteacher, protector of the very old and the very young. Typically, a parochial and patriotic person with a deep affinity for foundational schooling, shelters and buildings, and a profound affection for the homeland.

  • Harmonices Mundi 1571-1630 Johannes Kepler * Shukra-yuti-Ketu * his mother was a major force in his life, vargottamsha utta-amsha [dik-bala] Chandra-4. Although he was born into very modest circumstances, where the father abandoned the family and the mother was a local herbalist accused of witchcraft, Kepler rose to become one of the leading figures in the early phase of Europe's scientific revolution. His mom and his maternal grandmother provided his protective, nourishing basis.

Chandra = svabhava

Exceptionally sensitive to childhood home, customary habits, rhythmic routines, and perceived sources of emotional security

Rhythmic, habitual, parental, customary, comfortable, protective, patriotic. Carries on the Old Ways and folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms.

Generally quite close emotionally to the mother (presuming Chandra is not harmed via Ketu or Shani).

Defends the ethnic claim to a people's ancient Way of Life.

"Roots "

  • Chandra in bandhu bhava gains dik-bala.

Chandra-4 spends much of one's electro-magnetic emotional energy taking care of weaker creatures.

Deep engagement with sheltering of infants and elders; environmental protection of homes and farmlands;

preference for the marine coastlands and safe harbors; must own property and frequently has a private vehicle in some fashion, whether oxcart, bicycle, or automobile.

Deep emotional attachment to the Mother Culture. Patriotic and sentimental in matters of the Homeland.

protective emotional grounding via the mother, and via the agency of any bhava-pati there

(for example, yuvati-pati-7 in 4 = protective shelter via the life partner; vidya-pati-5 in 4 = sheltered by the children)

Soma-4 = nearly always advantageous for matters of home and house, farmlands and pastures, shelter and building construction, personal emotional security, the social stability of one's parents, and deep understanding of the deeply rooted, rhythmic, reliable ethnic folkways culture into which one was born.

Natural affinity for homeland security, protective policing, parenting, guardianship, and school-teaching.

Foundations, ancient habits, Spirits of the Land, transmission of the root-culture via schooling

  • Esoteric Astrology 1925-2005 Jyotishavidya Bepin Behari * Aśleṣa-Chandra-yuti-Rahu

  • educator Maria Montessori = foundational customary rhythms

  • POTUS-pair-43 School Libraries 1946- Laura Welch Bush * parivartamsha bandesha-4 Shani-9 * before marriage, worked as an elementary school teacher and librarian


Emotionally identified with shelter = vehicles and real estate.

Chandra in 4 expresses a deep affinity for belongingness and Place. Deep electro-magnetic emotional connection to the Land and to the root culture and folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms of a people. Is generally not inclined to travel far from the Homeland unless Chandra is involved with Rahu.

Chandra-4 is prone to a defensive, protective emotional strategy which brings a parental, and sometimes patronizing, caretaker behavior into all forms of emotional engagement.

No matter what other circumstances define the life, Chandra-4 at some point forms a bondage of parenting or stewardship with a family, in protection of a customary ethnic folkway, or as a guardian of The Land.

Emotionally most comfortable in schooling, protection and defense of the Mother Culture, defense of the land and the Way of Life of one's people.

Strongly attached to the early c hildhood home, has deep emotional roots in the birth culture, and often remains close to the regional culture of birth.

Needs to care for the parents or the ancestral lands; naturally patriotic

Need for security and protection

  • &

The main polarizing catalysis with Chandra in Bandhu bhava = one ABSORBS the human craving for stability and security into oneself. This can create some emotional pressure at times when swift movement or adventurous risk are required.

Strong emotional attachment and deep loyalty to the parents and The childhood home.

Dedication to the homeland

attends to the cultural roots of one's people.


  • A teacher of the foundational ways (not a philosopher of the higher ways)

  • a guardian "in loco parentis ", a patriot

  • a caretaker, a protector of the polis (police).

Wants stability and predictability.

Easily upset by disruption of habit or arrhythmic movement.

Splendid placement for police, security guards, protectors and guardians.

  • Karako bhavo nashto applies when Chandra occupies His own svabhava = Too much of a good thing.

  • Problems include needy or controlling parents, an emotionally needy tightly-bonding mother, or the home country demands too much patriotic allegiance.

  • Emotional bonds within the family are well-established, but psychically demanding.

Health suffers from excess sensitivity to small emotional fluctuations, and from the rather hopeless psychic task of managing the emotional lives of others.

Due to karako bhavo nashto, if Chandra is very strong and yuti a natural maraka, the mother may be short-lived, so that the native recovers one's own power of self-nurturing.

Barring uncomfortable graha in bhava-10, the dignity of the first marriage is generally protected due to 7th-from-Chandra-4.

Chandra is a highly impressionable graha; drishti and house lord are exceptionally influential in rendering the final result of Chandra's behavior in bandhu bhava.

Generally a positive placement presuming Chandra is well-disposed by rashi and drishti.

Strong emotional attachment to the mother, home, property, nation-state, tribe, and most of all the land.

Can be a protective, earth-grounded environmentalist. Natural care-taker with powerful nurturing instincts. These instincts will express along the lines set by the rashi lord, and within limits or with additional permissions as created by drishti.

Mother is a nurturing personality with giving breasts and embracing arms. Contributes a self-protectiveness to the character which is learned from the mother and her lineage. Instinct to shelter and protect self and others. Deeply parental orientation whether the native is male or female.

As a parent, the native is deeply concerned with the delicate pre-verbal stages of childhood . Strong focus on food, nurturing, emotional well-being and safety. May be fearful of releasing the child into the greater world; more"home-schoolers " here.

As a teacher, often specializes in early childhood education and infant care. May operate a school inside their home.

The home environment while emotionally rich may also be polarizing catalysis if the child feels overwhelmed by the parents' feelings. Chandra-yuti-Rahu, can indicate a smother-mother who binds the child too tightly to her own views, and becomes dependent on the child for her own security.

yuti Kuja will produce the auspicious Chandra-Mangala yoga, giving wealth and commercial ambition. Yuti Guru, may produce a great many children. Yuti Shani, a"permanent saade sati" which binds the child to the family or the land without benefit; a demanding but absent or emotionally unavailable mother.

Whether easy or difficult, emotional attachment to the mother and property is deep and self-defining.

  • Mother
  • maternal grandmother
  • one's own childhood home
  • mother's childhood home

The Masculine Nativity may experience his mother as a powerfully protective and nurturing force. She is attached to her ancestral owned property and rooted into the land of her birth. The mother's feelings often define the childhood environment. The mother's mother is also usually an important caretaker and schooling-agent in the child's foundational years.

(Although, mother's mother and mother's childhood home should also be assessed via the defensive, culturally-rooted, seasonal-calendar, routinized, patriotic, ethno-nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning 4th-from-Chandra.)

The adult man's relationships with women are generally traditional . He seeks a female companion as wife and mother to his children. He needs emotionally to continue the home-centered nurturing experience he had with his own mother.

  • If Chandra is ill-disposed, he man will seek a female mate with the same ill disposition as his mother.

If the Moon is auspicious his adult relationships are stable and sensitive but quite traditional .

  • If the Moon is disturbed the man becomes emotionally upset through dysfunctional bond to the Mother.

  • He may mate with many Feminine Nativities in his search to re-create the volatile or rejecting connection he had with mom.

  • Chandra-yuti-Rahu in 4: Can be Obsessively patriotic.

For the man with Chandra in Bhava-4 , the wife will be a reflective image of his mother. This man is deeply attached to his birth place (not always to the people, but to the place). Deep need for landed property, vehicles, and buildings. Setup for a multi-family home where the man's mother is the ruler of the roost. Moon in bandhu bhava creates a helpful emotional protection for the man, who attracts an environment full of doting women. But perhaps not so easy for his spouse(s)!

The woman will see herself as carrying on a strong female lineage of caretaking for families and their land. Supportive relationship with her own mother so long as Chandra is benevolent. If Chandra is disturbed, the very core of the woman's being may be out of emotional balance because this position of Chandra completely rules the psycho-emotional life. May be deeply intuitive in communication with the spirits of the lands (devas).

  • Even if the relationship with the mother is unsatisfactory, the woman has a profound connection to the land of her birth, and feels emotionally grounded in her home and property.

  • Very protective, maternal, emotionally bonding personality which wants to recreate or sustain the psycho-emotional environment of her childhood home.

Does not favor emotional risks (unless with Rahu) and is not interested in traveling too far from the roost, unless doing so furthers her long-term security and anyway not for long. Even if she owns property in several places, she will surely maintain a connection to her ancestral home. May carry a stone or soil from the birthplace in some amulet near her heart . A person of place.

Disagreement, disappointment, emotional servitude =

When Chandra occupies Bhava-4, the most difficult house emotionally becomes 6th-from-4th = dharma bhava.

The sacred teachings, world travel, and father = Bhava-9 = 6th-from-Chandra in sukha-bhava-4; naturally conflict with established religion, priests, and the father can arise.

  • Unless there are strong graha in 9, one may feel emotionally unsuited to the task of maintaining the established ceremonial religion and its teachings.

  • As a result, one may feel enslaved to religious piety and performance of celebratory ritual.

Depending on conditions in Bhava-9, expect affective difficulties due to disagreements with the father, professors, priests, and the guru.

The lord of dharma can produce emotional servitude (giving more than one receives) during its Vimshottari period.

The father (or the parents as a pair, if the father dominates the parental marriage) are a particular source of that problem of disappointment or exploitative overwork. Even when all are adults, the father continues to demand more in service than he rewards.

The third marriage (Bhava-9) if any, may be growth-challenging.


The Golden Age * Goldenes-Zeitalter

by the German Renaissance painter Lucas Cranach the Elder * circa 1530


Das / Bepin Behari comments upon Chandra-4:

"The Moon is a soothing planet which replaces the Sun's radiance with an attractive coolness.

The Moon in the Fourth house makes you approachable by everyone, high and low, rich and poor.

  • A sympathetic chord resounds when we meet someone with the Moon in the Fourth house. The depth of the ocean is in your eyes and the tranquility of your disposition can quiet the most turbulent emotions in others.

  • Motherly affection, nice cars, pleasant travel and universal respect give a sense of contentment which makes you non-competitive with others.

  • You are popular among relations and loved by the opposite sex.

You are affluent, but often afflicted by physical problems .

  • Your mother will be short-lived if the Moon is in the 4th house. [One] ... always becomes a great authority with the help of brethren.

  • Early life is not very happy and smooth.

  • Full family support including that of spouse and children; and encouragement from them. The 4th house is for environment, home, parents and their end of life -- especially of the mother.

  • If a strong Moon is posited in the 4th house, you are powerful, with a rank like a treasurer; youthful with pleasant spouse and children; plenty of prosperity.

  • Helpful to friends; favors adulteresses, sickness from food; lives in palatial houses.

  • Charitable. Marine trade including fishery, pearl and shell; import and export of goods.

  • Devoted to God and godly people; gain from agriculture.

  • With a full Moon in the 4th house you are born with a silver spoon in your mouth.

  • Your mother may have been ailing; so you may have been breastfed by a nurse.

  • Debauch.... makes you virtuous, large-hearted, a person of authority, melancholy, learned, well-versed in scriptures; and fortunate.

  • If the Moon is in movable signs, you have to change residence frequently.

  • Wealth, property inherited from the mother; devotion to mother, gives good luck.

  • The latter half of life is happier than the earlier.

  • Ambition for happiness is fulfilled.

  • You keep yourself fit and stout. Income from mines; marriage brings riches, good luck and estate.

  • You will be endowed with relatives, paraphernalia and conveyances , charitable, fond of traveling by water and will neither be very happy nor be miserable.

  • You will be free from the excesses of happiness and unhappiness.

  • So to say, you will have a balanced position in regard to this aspect and will be generally happy.

  • You will gain position through relatives, will occupy good positions in banks, financial institutions etc.

  • You will be learned, addicted to the opposite sex, endowed with various kinds of financial wealth , will eat non-vegetarian items and will live in beautiful abodes.

  • (One may be always sick if the Moon is not strong being in the 4th house.)"
