Chandra is comfortable in environments that nourish creative intelligence, games, romance, children, entitlement, glamour-and-glitter, fame, scholarly specialties. Soothed by the spotlight.

When Chandra occupies bhava-5 * the indriya-lagna is located in 9th-from-Chandra. One has a special affinity for 9th-matters such as global humanism, university culture, ideology, theory, and sacred doctrine.

  • Bacteriology 1822-1895 Microbes Louis Pasteur [ Kuja-yuti-Rahu] A savior-hero figure in France by the time he turned 55, LP's disease-prevention discoveries (Chandra activates 6) were celebrated by every sector of French society, especially the farmers and vintners [Chandra]. LP was not so unconditionally loved by the scientists though, due to LP's need to misappropriate credit for others' experimental work (rogesha Chandra). Also, LP's over-reaching [Kuja-yuti-Rahu in 8th-from-Chandra] = attacking his peers, and hiding the experimental notebooks which documented his misdeeds (6-8).

Chandra-5 seeks comfort in the center of attention but in a caring, parental way; Chandra-5 is particularly sensitive to students-adolescents and diva personalities. This angle is a signature of the unique preacher-teacher, often found in entitled, professorial, or philosophical-guru roles.

Professor Chandra's special area of instruction is emotional sensitivity, absorption of feelings from the local environment, and emotional reaction or response. Chandra-5 is especially sensitive to the fluctuation of intellectual, speculative, and gaming-gambling patterns, and the need for familiar, rhythmic routines of movement in the expression of political and literary drama.

bhava-10 executive authority, social responsibility, public duties, respect = the conflicted 6th-from-Chandra-5

Vimshottari-dasha, bhukti of ruler-of-10, can produce an emotionally-charged argument, health challenge, or criminal accusation in the form of a leadership conflict. The culprit can also be a boss, a government official, or a regulatory agency. Outcomes depends on the strength of the karmesha.


Mother is often distinguished by her intelligence, creativity, entitlement, entertainments, celebrity, glittering or fashionable style, or by her quality of affectionate charm. She may also derive a primary feeling of belonging from her relationship to her children (5).

The parents as a team may have roles such as royalty, celebrity, game-playing, dramatic or center-stage figures within their own local culture.

As typical with local environments, the nature of the celebrity status may be petty such as an intellectual figure within a local university or a regionally famous politician. The child is acclimatized early to the ethnically [Chandra] expected, customary response to expressions of genius, and one becomes comfortable holding center-stage roles from an early age.

  • UK Earl 1964- Edward of Wessex was raised as a celebrity-royal, had an early career in theatre, and matured into ceremonial roles

  • Easy Rider 1936-2010 artist Dennis Hopper * mother was a drama teacher

  • POTUS-45 Play to Win 1946- Beauty Pageants Donald Trump [Jyeṣtha-4] [nīcha-Chandra-yuti-Ketu] DJT mother was a queen of social entertainments that promted his father's real-estate empire. /The Donald/ became naturally comfortable holding the center of attention. Chandra-yuti-Ketu is simultaneously familiar and incoherent in style.

  • POTUS-pair-45 fashion 1970- Melania Knavs Trump [Pūrvāṣāḍhā-1] MKT's mom = fashion designer and familiar of glamour shows; daughter naturally comfortable on modeling catwalks.

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-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 Creativity

Chandra-5 needs constant drama of individuality. Theatrical or political life forms the basis of their emotional engagement. Chandra-5 often feels deeply attached to children, romantic lovers, and brilliant ideals.

Emotionally nourished by expressions of unique personal intelligence, royalty, celebrity, political and philosophical ideals.

Gambling and Games

Emotional affinity for games of all kinds. Chandra is welcome in a svabhava of Surya, but Chandra will often attract stronger, brighter dramatic solar personalities to complement the more passive, protective lunar behaviors. (Chandra-5 may attract partners who are drama queens.)

Adolescent solipsism

Particularly sensitive to feelings during the adolescent years. Mother-figure is often a dramatic actor, a politician, a creative or literary artist, a unique celebrity or royal personality, a central figure of unique intelligence, a genius of games.

Generally a sensitive, intelligent person with deep political instincts who loves to speculate, dramatize, play games and interact creatively with children.

Romantic, charismatic Political Protector

Politicians, charismatic preachers, gamblers, dramatists, royalty, celebrities, literary authors, artistic stage-performers.

nurtured by swooning romance

needs creativity, gamesmanship, showmanship, expressions of unique intelligence. If there are also graha in bhava-3, one may be a superbly flamboyant writer

affection for the theatrical limelight, soothed by center-stage attention

emotionally attuned to adolescents

needs center-stage political or theatrical attention

comforted [Chandra] by environments providing dry bright heat (5).

Exceptionally sensitive to charismatic celebrity, political games, and perceived intelligence

Chandra in putra bhava = 2nd from Soma's natural residence bandhu bhava =usually advantageous for matters of personal genius, creativity and performance, promotion of the causes related to children, and all expressions of political culture.

Emotionally most comfortable in the company of one's children, on the theatrical stage and in the political arena.

  • UK Queen 1819-1901 Empress Victoria-1 [Somana-yuti-Surya] symbolized a royally entitled motherly image. Her dedication to all of her 10 children was deeply emphasized.

Literary and poetic creativity of a deeply personal, emotionally responsive nature

Strong emotional attachment to

children, the mother's family history, and the paternal grandfather.

  • Ave Maria 1935-2007 tenor Luciano Pavarotti [Chandra-Revati-5] famed for his many charitable performances and contributions to worldwide humanistic endeavors

  • USA-Gov-FL 1953- real-estate Jeb Bush + [Surya-yuti-Rahu] speaks often of his love for his children; resembles his mother's folk, and carries the political empowerment of Prescott Bush (kingmaker) father's father

Needs to be recognized for genius, creativity and ability to achieve fame.

Excellent placement for artistic performers who are comfortable [Chandra] in center-stage roles (5).

Excellent placement for charming political performers who are comfortable [Chandra] in center-stage roles (5). Splendid emotionally radiant entertainer.

May be beneficial for inspirational figures who deliver a center-stage performance as sheltering parent-protector figures


When Chandra occupies Bhava-5, 7th-from-Chandra becomes Bhava-11. The spouse is accomplished in life, via structured goal-setting, hard work and careful attention to networks. Spouse is Typically, a society figure such as a community activist or economic agent. For more about life-partner qualities and behaviors, see partnership for native with Chandra-5

Chandra in 3rd-from-3rd = messaging, focus of attention, charismatic reporting

  • VPOTUS-pair Music Censorship 1948- Tipper Gore has delivered countless scripted speeches, announcements, reports, and televised interviews. Over the course of a 40-year political partnership, TAG attended a constant flow [Chandra] of meetings for community fundraising support Chandra in Kumbha

Chandra-5 ABSORBS the inspiration of divine intelligence into oneself.

This is not really a problem except for some tendency to absorb the lives of one's children into one's own charismatic emotional aura.

Chandra in any bhagya Bhava (1, 5, 9) = auspicious. Bhava-5 = Divine Intelligence. Here, Chandra-5

channels Lunar nurturing and caretaking energy through Solar rational channels of politics, fashion, speculation, drama, children, creative self-expressions in all arts, poetry and letters, and every form of entertainment.

Chandra's rashi and Nakshatra will determine the creative environment in which Chandra-5

prospers best.

E.g., in Tula, Chandra-5 feels a need to self-express by getting things back into balance, re-negotiating, re-arranging, and beautifying. Here is the home re-decorator, the social worker, the cosmetic surgeon, the floral arranger, the alterations tailor. Chandra-5 = the mother who dresses, styles, aligns and balances each of her children before they leave the home.

Emotional enthusiasm for nurturing and caretaking activities. Loves children and creative activities. Natural and instinctive generosity of spirit [Surya]. Enjoys the feeling of having Good Luck.

  • strong Chandra -5 = a gifted speculator and giver of political speeches or sermons, esp. with harmonious drishti from Budha. Feels a need to win, but always in a nurturing and caretaking way.

Needs to see oneself as a creative person, a channel of divine love and intelligence. A bit of a gambler , one who has beat the human odds in some way, a genius who brings forth something fascinating, remarkable, and true; as a chosen winner.

Romantic, charismatic Political Protector Appeals to those who need a strong and predictable Foundation [Chandra]:

land-bound, customary, ethnic morality, mothers-parents, schoolteachers, landowners, habitual and patriotic folk, those needing Security and return to the Habitual Old Ways of foundational decency and protection for the weak.

Deep and abiding parental intelligence, and generally also a large number of children (relative to the cultural norm). One's children are the emotional center of one's life. A creative caretaker, who may adjust the cultural norms of parenting somewhat in order to care for many children, in addition to one's own progeny.

Sentimental affection for children and ability to channel divine intelligence into the world of children.

Splendid placement for a creative teacher of youth.

Agents of approval, admiration, applause = Mother and parents or caretakers.

Sheltering, educating, parenting, and nurturing = the primary means of gaining ego-validation, attention and approval.

Chandra Mahadasha and Chandra bhukti Chandra Mahadasha and Chandra bhukti Chandra bhukti generate emotional experiences characterized by Chandra's temporal bhava-5. The steady, rhythmic, ritualized, repeating-cycle of feelings is centered in creativity, charisma, and unique expressions of individual intelligence

masculine nativity

Masculine-figures generally enjoy a creative, intelligent relationship with the mother, experiencing her as a provider of self-confidence, fortune and amusement in his early life.

He is emotionally rewarded by his mother for demonstrating independence, adventurousness and compassionate love for others. He continues these emotional habits successfully into adult life. A good lover who enjoys much romance with the women in his life.

feminine nativity

Feminine figures typically enjoy a creative emotional state in their own mind, full of lively children and loving appreciation of the fine and performance arts. Her own mother is a beneficial, supportive force who communicates female emotional vitality and validation. (However, the mother may be non-traditional and self-centered.)

Ladies are validated for adventurousness and civilized creativity; she has emotional permission to produce entertainments and receive pleasures from romantic companions. There is much love and poetry in the life.

Further improved if Soma rules an auspicious sthana.


Protecting the Rights of the Vulnerable

Opposite of self-radiant Surya-5 in terms of empathy for others: compassionate and sensitive to feelings, particularly toward children.

If strong, Chandra-5 may become an celebrity icon or even a savior of the weak, needy, and insecure. May be able to represent and reflect [Chandra] a political (5) movement promising

  • protection (Soma) of security,

  • protection (Soma) of basic (Chandra, foundations) civil and human rights (5, entitlements),

  • re-establishment and re-affirmation (Chandra, the reflector) of existing empowerments for the more vulnerable [Chandra] classes.

On the political platform, Chandra does not normally propose to introduce the radically new, exciting, or non-habitual. Rather, in the politicized 5th bhava, Chandra glows with the comforting, familiar, paternalistic assurance that the rights (5) already politically (5) established [Chandra] within the State or nation will be defended against outside threats [Chandra].

Special inspirational political (5) appeal to women and affiliation with protecting-the-fragile 'environmentalist' causes.

Mother Is creative, intelligent, likes center-stage roles, is independent, entitled, perhaps sometimes a bit arrogant, accustomed to celebrity (less so in rashi of Shani) likes gambling, games, theatre, children, adolescents, likes students and brightness. She adores politics often * especially in rashi of Surya, Guru, or Mangala* and is delighted when her children acquire celebrity or when they win at games.

Disagreement, disappointment, emotional servitude =


When Chandra occupies Bhava-5, the most difficult house emotionally becomes 6th-from-5th = karma-bhava.

  • Depending on conditions in Bhava-10, expect affective difficulties due to disagreements with government officials, the boss, and executive authority in hierarchical organizations. The lord of Karma [akashic memory patterning] often produces emotional servitude (giving more than one receives) during its Vimshottari period.

  • Government officials or corporate leadership = particular agents of that problem of disappointment or exploitative overwork.

  • The executive leader in one's professional setting will continue to demand more in service than the organization can reward.


  • Legislative, regulatory social-ordering leadership Bhava-10 = 6th-from-Chandra;

    naturally, discomfort with government bureaucracies, hierarchs, bosses, and social rules can arise.

  • Unless there are strong graha in karma-sthana , the self-directed and uniquely perceptive Chandra-5 may feel emotionally unsuited to carry out the requirements of high-ranking leadership.

  • As result, one may feel enslaved to the task of iconic public roles.

QUOTATION Das / Bepin Behari comments upon Chandra-5:

"This placement is basically very good.

It makes you a tranquil and balanced person at your basis .

  • You will be content,

  • blessed with general happiness from having received all the necessities of life.

This moon gives you interest in getting your life together more so than making a novel contribution to the society at large.

  • It gives you interest in things like poetry, chemistry, medicine and social work.

  • It says that the children's health will not be robust

  • and it leans towards having girls rather than boys. ... promising children ...

makes your mind fundamentally good.

  • Possible avenues of gain indicated are moon-related such as diamonds, land, trade, money lending, and many other sources.

The 5th house stands for children, enterprise, speculations, gains, love affairs, ... so you will find that your mind gravitates to these things.

This also gives you patience, gentleness, good looks, health and noble parents.

... the timid learned type.

  • You will most likely earn through your learning, be involved in research, though clothes and food are good too.

This Moon bodes well for the attainments of your children.

It is a good indication that at some point in life you will get blessings.

It indicates that you will gain from your spouse .

It bodes well for being a money lender by trade.

It indicates a good spouse, but also multiple spouses in some way, and a generous streak,

  • especially in regards to feeding the needy."
