final assessment of Chandra involves many other factors, such as Somana's ruler, rashi, nakshatra, incoming drishti, and navamsha inter alia
Stress Zones in Material Body
Because 2nd-from-Chandra = bhava-6 medical challenges, times of emotional stress can produce sorrow in
Family of origin  may be adversarial
Graha in 2nd-from-Chandra will determine the degree and type of inimical conditions WRT the family of origin along with husband-or-wife
Even when conditions appear pleasant on the public facade, imbalance and toxicity may define the family culture.

When Chandra occupies bhava-5, the indriya-lagna = 9th-from-Chandra.
One has a special affinity for 9th-matters such as global humanism, university culture, ideology, theory, first principles, and sacred doctrine.
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.
Impulsiveness and Authority

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.
Definitive influence of Graha-yuti-Chandra
