    The Helpers

    * comforted by service ministry * sensitive to workers * caretakers of the criticized

    May be comfortable in roles such as argument-maker, physician, military officer, aid worker, social worker, helper, or minister of service to the disadvantaged.

    One may experience adversarial relationships with the mother-figure and caretakers, schoolteachers, police and protectors, + maternal-sheltering figures. Mother can become the enemy.

    Often indicates that the mother-figure is born into enslavement or into conditions of involuntary service.

    Mother may also have chosen a professionalized service role, such as medicine, military, social-work, pastoral work in human services, or another ministry offering aid to the disadvantage.

    Mom = usually an emotionally sensitive super-helper with an unacknowledged martyr complex.


    Chandra represents the nurturing core of family life. Yet, when Caring Chandra occupies the mahadushthamsha, the parents may become or appear to become negligent toward their family due to the illness-overwork-servitude-exploitations which characterize the satkona. Attending to professional service duties outside the family may overwhelm one's ability to attend to one's own children.

    Often both parents suffer from indebtedness such as a heavy mortgage or medical debt or other exhausting financial imbalance. They may both be prone toward miseries of illness, animosity. or overwork.

    Working to exhaustion, whether by outer compunction or inner emotional need, is a common theme of Chandra-6.

    The master of this servant may appear as a need (Chandra) for achievement of a project, a cause, a purpose, a salary, or some force of economic systems. However, usually, the master of this servitude = need for nourishment, comfort, habit, routine, protection from criticism.

    Parents may be working in servitude to put a roof over our heads or to put food on the table.

    One may be customarily familiar with environments of conflict, illness, addiction, pollution, accusation, litigation, indictments, exploitation, injury, and crime. The mother suffers. Parents may be ill.

    Mother = a servant in some fashion. She may be a nurse, a physician serving local people, a customary healer, and maker of medicines, or a laborer in domus, farm, or waters.

    • My Inventions 1856-1943 Nikola Tesla * Chandra-yuti-Ketu * Tesla credited his mother as the primary source of his ability to recognize energy gridworks. Her weaving + knitting patterns along with her sensitivity to animals (6) taught NT to notice the fluctuating currents of life. Mom was born into deeply humble circumstances. His father was a priest who ministered to the needy. According to the customs of the day, Dad also belittled and abused women. NT's ailing and ill-treated mother was a servant to his father's household, As the domestic servant of the minister-to-the-needy, Mom often worked to exhaustion. Following his parents' example, Tesla also worked to exhaustion throughout his life.

    Disappointment + Betrayal

    Those who are expected to behave in a trustworthy (7) sheltering and nourishing fashion (Chandra) may fail to be worthy of trust. Instead they may become devious exploiters, polluted in their motivation and possibly criminal in their behavior.

    Corrupt or unbalanced counsel from mother-figures, parents, caretakers, nurses, schoolteachers, protectors, police, guardians of the settlement.

    Positive implications: mother or mother-figure may be a physician or nurse, health-care worker, criminal attorney or social service worker, or mother is dedicated to a ministry of service. Even with positive service indication, mother is often ill.

    • The mother of My Inventions 1856-1943 Nikola Tesla was a humble house servant. According to Tesla, his mother a remarkably intelligent woman who intuitively showed him * his Chandra-yuti-Ketu * the design elements of electrical networks long before they were mathematically explained. Yet, she was deeply oppressed by her workload, her social invisibility, and her mentality of servitude (6).

    Chandra in bhava-6. No matter their other possibly virtuous qualities, the parents play an adversarial or exploitive role for the nativity featuring Chandra-6. Mother may be a victim of broken trust, mother is ill, or addicted, or exploited; underpaid, in servitude.

    Parents may be in emotional conflict, "broke" (broken balance), overworked, sick. Childhood awkward and upset.

    Maternal women in the life-script tend to be underpaid and feeling "used". Both the natives and their mothers tend to function as Blamers; also victims of false accusation by caretakers.

    If compassionate, the mother--figure(s) may be agents of professional medical-military-remediation service. Much depends on Chandra's rashi, ruler, and incoming drishti

    Chandra-6 typically finds a soothing comfort in those environments characterized by suffering due to exploitation and identification with the victim narrative, such as medicine, military, service ministry, and settings that feature remediation, ailment, accusation, litigation, indictments, or ongoing conflict

    Professor Chandra's special area of instruction is emotional sensitivity, absorption of feelings from the local (Chandra local) environment, and emotional reaction or response to the conditions typical of aristhana including animosity, indebtedness, and disease.

    Chandra-6 is especially sensitive to the unbalanced environment of bhava-6 which includes the experiences of

    • ailment
    • injury
    • complaint
    • accusation (true or false)
    • pollution
    • toxicity
    • injustice
    • criminal mistreatment
    • disagreement
    • exploitation
    • pain-numbing addiction
    • improper medication
    • servitude
    • disputes
    • treachery
    • broken promises
    • betrayal
    • and most of all -- criticism

    Chandra-6 often indicates mother-figures who are dedicated to human service yet who can be jealous and emotionally exploitive. In the lifescript of the nativity, Typically, the mother-figures are scripted agents of criticism and guilt.

    These mother-figures may also be medical workers, and they may have many complaints of their own such as hormonal imbalances which produce sicknesses, debt, domestic (Chandra) servitude (6), and crime or conflict according to the rashi, the ruler, and incoming drishti. Chandra is exceptionally impressionable; incoming drishti is potent.

    Chandra-6 senses the fluctuations of conflict between the parents, unspoken accusations, welled-up resentments which spill into arguments, and the unvoiced cries of the vulnerable.

    Soma in satkona = often a position of hypersensitivity to all of the ailments of this world. One may suffer diseases of a watery nature, such as pneumonia (grief) or oedema (fear). They are often acutely aware of sorrow. Those who serve the most compassionately often are themselves also suffering. This empathetic attunement may provide the perfect basis for a lifetime ministry of service.


    For Chandra-6, bhava-12 represents the beleaguered lifepartner of the cranky native. The partner is often withdrawn from the native's concerns and may be less emotionally responsive. The lifepartner often exhibits a preference for seclusion within a research laboratory, while traveling in Other Worlds of the imagination or geographical, or while remaining in a state of meditation or private prayer.


    The parents are typically obedient workers. However, Chandra-6 parents may also work professionally in the medical, social ministry, or other educated service roles. Frequently as well, the mother suffers a definitive illness.

    • My Inventions 1856-1943 Nikola Tesla + Mangala-yuti-Ketu * NT's mother was a servant-wife to his priestly father, caring for all, while ill herself

    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 + Zukra * 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

    Ashtamsha * angle 8th-from * impetus toward next-step

    One of the lifetime challenges of Chandra-6 = any graha transiting across the radical lagna automatically produces the forced-transformation effects of ashtamsha * 8th-from. Whatever comfortable, enhancing, or uplifting outcomes of ashtama transits there may be, these outcomes are always compounded by the mandate to take the next step (8).

    It is a lifetime of radical transformations revealing mysterious truths which are usually accompanied by sickness or injury. Nevertheless, these incarnations are exceptionally compassionate and often produce remarkable healers of the spirit.

    Serve or Suffer * Service to the Seasick

    To feel comfortable, Chandra-6 needs an oscillating pattern of events in a service ministry (for example, medical appointments or regularly scheduled classes serving displaced persons).

    Needs a rhythmically fluctuating pattern of logical argumentation (for example medical treatment plans, military strategic discourse, or social-work case plans) .

    Needs an oscillating pattern of imbalance reaching balance then reverting to imbalance, aiming toward a condition of insufficiency, accusation, or exploitation.

    Depending on the rashi of Chandra, Professor Somana-6 may be emotionally well suited to ministries of professional service such as teaching marginalized or insufficient classes of students, providing military defense in conflicted situations, handling domestic violence or other "broken" accusatory environments, and other professional expressions of empathetic and parental (Chandra) skill.

    Often injured, often sick, continues to serve

    Logical and Sensitive

    Chandra-6 is often particularly gifted with the argumentation of testing and assessing insufficiencies, and may serve in a gateway function as a medical, educational, social-services, or military proficiency tester.

    Chandra-6 needs to be engaged in a position of emotional response supporting (Chandra) those who are suffering a state of imbalance. Thus Chandra-6 seems to experience more than their fair share of jealousy, illness, poverty, exploitation, animosity etc. particularly in regard to parental-figures.

    Chandra-6 may seem to suffer a mismatch (6) to the fundamental rhythms of one's home culture. This basic imbalance afflicts the over-serving, blamed or exploited mother. The dizziness of Chandra-6 destabilizes all those agents who play roles which provide grounding, roots, belongingness, and a sense of place.

    Until the essential discrimination (6) between effective and ineffective types of response-to-the-suffering-world is established, one may feel like "a rolling stone" tumbling along a bumpy, unstable path of life expression.

    There are no victims.

    Chandra-6 = a challenging dusthamsha position emotionally as one seems to be frequently accused, exploited and scapegoated by the very figures who should be nurturing and protective * Saumana shelter.

    Yet, the affliction has a fairly easy cure. The cure is not blind servitude or succumbing to exploitation, but rather skillful and compassionate service to those who are sailing turbulent, uneven seas (Chandra). The misbehaving, blaming agents are literally seasick.

    The purpose is not to use one's own emotional reserves to fix or intervene in the affairs of others. Rather the purpose is purely personal and remedial: one seeks to establish (Chandra) * within oneself * an ability to respond compassionately to people and environments that demonstrate unfair, unjust, exploitive, toxic, criminal behaviors (6).

    Importantly, compassionate response must be skillful in order to be effective. therefore, if one acknowledges simply not having the necessary skills to deal with the difficult person or situation, the correct compassionate response is often to remain sensitive (Chandra) to the presence of an Earth-being in distress whilst in terms of activity * doing nothing*.

    When Chandra-6 is able to discriminate (6) between skillful and non-skillful response to the adversarial agents, success in service is assured.

    Typically, Chandra-6 is poised to respond to problematic and conflicted realms of the human experience such as medical, military, litigious and criminal environments (including pollution toxicity, unfair discrimination, jealousy, gluttony, greed, usury et-cetera etc).

    In these inherently imbalance environments usually the problems of the human conditions can be defined and "treated" but due to a planetary need to utilize conflicted experiences for karmic purposes, these problems cannot be permanently resolved.

    Service should not be understood as demeaning or a sign of inferiority in any way. Rather, this placement of Chandra indicates high spiritual awareness (albeit often unconscious) of the ultimate spiritual path that is the way of sacrifice.

    While sustaining longer term human contracts may be emotionally draining, the higher interests are being intensely served. There is no opportunity for complacency which the illusory stability of human-to-human trust might encourage for more grounded placements of Chandra.

    The socially designated caretakers may have failed to protect one's interests during childhood, and one may be falsely accused of crimes or illicit actions, especially during periods of ruler of 6th-from-Chandra. Scapegoat for the misdeeds of the parents, who blame the victim.

    Mother is a servant of any type, clinician, nurse, social-worker, druggist, physician, or protector of the unbalanced. Frequent illness and pain, always emotionally founded.

    Chandra-6 must monitor for signs of physical and emotional exhaustion in order to prevent seva burn-out which could damage the effectiveness of the this powerful, yet delicate path.

    One's Father and one's maternal grandfather

    Chandra-6 creates a unique situation between the birth father (9)and the father of the birth mother (maternal grandfather, 9th-from-Chandra). 9th-from-Chandra-6 = bhava-2. The agents in 2 are also 6th-from-9th Therefore, they are enemies of the father.

    No matter how lovely or how challenging may be the graha occupying bhava-2, the basic dynamic of the relationship between ones father and one's maternal grandfather is adversarial .

    The topic of disagreement is often values specifically historical or financial, because bhava-2 represents knowledge, memory, storage, banking, savings, and value acquisition. Rahu-2 amplifies and exaggerates the situation whereas Shani-2 makes it respectful but intractable.

    Some routine rhythmic pattern of sickness, disorder or disability according the Chandra's rashi

    Bhava-6 = disproportion

    • Chandra occupiesswabhava of Budha

    • Exceptionally sensitive to argumentation, litigation, illness, conflict, medication, exploitation, and perceived servitude

    Chandra sees Budha as a Friend, but Budha sees Chandra as an Enemy

    • logic of accusation, victimization and enslavement

    • disagreement, disavowal, divorce, devaluation, and digestive disorders

    Somatic illness

    Imbalanced, conflicted, or ill parents

    parents are often ill and may be unable to honor their parents contract (predecease is one reason that they cannot parent)

    Emotionally attached to medicines, military, mismatched pairs, ministries of service

    matrikaraka Chandra = caretaker and mother-figures use emotionally toxic criticism, accusation, emotional attacks. There may be a higher than normal incidence of encounters with protector-figures who suffer Borderline Personality Disorder. Colloquially, Chandra06 may become a "Borderline PD Magnet". Ironically and painfully, those in the role of qualified caretaker (such as mother, grandmother, schoolteacher, or nurse) may become the most vindictive.

    Mother may have deep health problems and one may 'inherit' the emotions which recreate the mother's imbalances in one's own body as well.

    • VPOTUS-pair Music Censorship 1948- Tipper Gore 's mother was first married to a soldier who was killed during World-War-2. Mom then married a shopkeeper (Tipper's dad). However, the second lifepartnership ended in an early divorce and her mom developed severe emotional depression. Tipper was raised by female relatives notably her maternal grandmother. the defensive, culturally-rooted, seasonal-calendar, routinized, patriotic, ethno-nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning 4th-from-Chandra = bhava-9 indicating the mother's mother is actually the father-figure. Grandma would have provided some wealth and wisdom to supplement her mom's meager resources.

    Parents (Chandra) in service to the nation, an institution, or to a government leader

    • UK-Queen, 1953- Elizabeth-2 * both of her parents spent their life in service to the British government

    Mother may have defining medical problems

    One with Chandra in the adversarial Satkona has an affection for the downtrodden, the ill, and criminals or those suffering the debilitating effects of broken contracts.

    However, Chandra-6 is not oneself a criminal. Nevertheless, Chandra-6 may be falsely accused of crimes.

    Argumentative, ministerial, medicinal protector

    The enemies are habitual relations within the family; often the parents are accusers. A scenario can develop (if Chandra's lord is ill disposed) wherein the parents (Chandra) personal behavior is actually illicit and the child with Chandra-6 becomes "scapegoat" for the parents' misdoings.

    • Purported supporters and nurturers tend to turn against the Chandra-6 native,

    • core nurturers and shelter-providers become enemies

    Emotionally attached to the mother's relatives.

    Chandra-6 = Typically, a problematic attachment due to the characteristically unbalanced, exploitive, disproportionate environment of the satkona.

    Emotionally toxic or abusive conditions are typical. The mother is often an 'enabler' personality who whilst a loving mother herself does permit the abuses to flourish on her home-watch.

    Chandra in Ari bhava-6 = 3rd (mental narrative) from Soma's natural residence Bandhu bhava (security) = not always an advantageous placement emotionally.

    Chandra-6 = a deep service affinity that seeks to protect servants, animals, victims, the impoverished, and the ill,

    Chandra-6 childhood conditions are overly complex and one lives in a state of distrust and emotional upset.

    • Psycho 1899-1980 film noir Alfred Hitchcock * Chandra-yuti-Guru * Chandra-6 parivartamsha Zukra-3. Hitchcock not only suffered from lifelong obesity (guru) but he also reckoned his knowledge of the conditions of torturous fear arose from his infancy experiences with his mother.

    Every bhava has its own special intelligence, and Chandra always signals the 'conditions of happiness' as an comfortably rhythmic emotional state.

    Bhava-6 offers numerous capabilities which must, for the sake of feeling happy, be put into a ministry of service of the self-distrusting and the imbalanced.

    Trines of 6:

    1. 1st from bhava-6 = medicine, social work, emotional capability to deal with conditions of animosity and toxicity (physical, mental, social, emotional, spiritual)

    2. 5th from bhava-2 = intuitive good luck (5) in collections and accumulations of value (2); 6 = artha bhava. The process of gathering wealth may be contentious but with Chandra in 6 wealth is acquired, often via children of second marriage (6 = 5th from 2nd) or mother's relatives (6 = 3rd from 4th)

    3. 9th from bhava-10 = the emotional wisdom to access the right assets at the right time (9) in matters of social governance and leadership.

    Kendra of 6:

    1. 4th from bhava-3 = emotional security and stability (4) may be produced from a foundation of mental inquiry and literacy (3). A too-chatty mind will normally drain resources from the emotional stabilization process (because 3 = natural 12th from 4) . Yet, in the case of Chandra-6, both Soma and 10th from Soma occupy natural bhava of rationalizer Budha (6, 3). Rational thought, logical argumentation skills, or some mental-verbal process such as japa yoga must structure (10) Chandra-6 's public identity in order to stabilize (4) the emotional well being. Chandra in the highly logical maha-dusthamsha gives emotional capacity to think empathetically about human conflict and error.

    2. 7th from bhava-12 = Chandra-6 creates an emotional anchor from which to establish relationships with clairsentient guides. These out-of-body entities (12) may be angels, spirit guides, ancestors, or one's own inner tutor (intuition). Relationships with these shepherds along the path (pushan, 12) may ultimately be stronger emotionally than human-to-human relationships. Unless Shani afflicts Chandra in 6, Chandra-6 finds personal prayer and meditation skills easily.

    3. 10th from bhava-9 = also 9th from 10th. Chandra provides the emotional grounding needed to fulfill the destiny of the"servant leader". Chandra-6 's mother (Chandra) is deeply identified with her own social service role, and she models adult leadership skills (10) for the child. Typically she supports the child's ethical (9) professionalization (10) throughout the upbringing, imbuing the child with a sense of their higher destiny via service rather than via power or fame. (Influence of the father = Surya which may later add much more personal ego-membrane to the total career.)

    Other angles:

    1. 2nd from bhava-5 = Chandra-6 may indicate an item in the spiritual script which involves the death of the eldest child from one's first marriage.

    2. 3rd from bhava-4 = Chandra-6 = an emotional affinity for commercial transactions and communicative messaging in regard to either vehicles and real estate, or (for Chandra in rashi of Guru) publications (3) about schooling and transmission of root culture

    3. 6th from bhava-1 = Chandra-6 = one of two options = serve or suffer. Either Chandra-6 develops compassion for the victim class, including the sick the poor and the exploited; or one suffers some considerable disease which has emotional roots in self-hatred.

    4. 8th from bhava-11 = Chandra-6 suggests an ongoing cycle of self-destruction and rebirth in regard to the marketplace income and emotional resources available to invest in reaching material goals. Income fluctuates, as does the emotional engagement with material goals. Strong graha in 11 or an ambitious drishti upon Chandra (from Mangala or from Rahu) can help to energize this otherwise ambivalent attitude toward fixed social-material achievements.

    5. 11th from bhava-8 = much achievement is However, realized in the realm of the invisible (8). Chandra-6 manifests considerable accomplishment of occult goals , particularly if the nativity also offers a Harsha Yoga or a Sarala Yoga. Chandra-6 knows intuitively that much more is operating subconsciously than consciously, and being relatively free emotionally of excess materialism or positivism, this placement affords a surprisingly clear path toward spiritual realization.

    Bhava-6 = 9th (public spiritual guidance) from 10th (lawful governance, profession) + 10th from 9th.

    From any rashi lagna, Chandra-6 = a workhorse servant-leader for the public good.

    Bhava 6 = 3rd (relatives) from 4th (mother)

    If Chandra's lord also occupies 6th-from-Chandra = Betrayal by the mother's relatives.

    Both Chandra-6 and one's own parents are emotionally grounded through professionalized (10) service work .

    Both of the parents (Chandra) may have health issues.

    Both parents will have some tendency to self-medicate; father's inner conflict should be measured by the angle from Chandra to Surya; if this angle is easy, he maybe less upset.

    Chandra in a bhava of argumentative, litigious Budha

    The feminine nativity Generally, inherits her mother's (Chandra) service dilemma .

    Typically for the Thula lagna, karmapathi Chandra-6 can feel emotionally overwhelmed by professional pressures. Atypically, Whitney's Chandra-Revati sits within a few degrees of Guru-Revati-6, signifying both the husband and self-medication with toxic drugs.

    One develops as an adult, a chronic inability to achieve a satisfying balance emotional needs. Fulfillment of service instincts is easier and feels more natural.

    The feminine nativity may experience a lifetime of unrelenting domestic servitude. However, this is not always a bad situation. It is more important, for spiritual purposes, to consciously understand what doesn't work (blaming others) than to glide smoothly through an already-easy course of life.

    Thus, much wisdom may be gained in this position. The final outcome may be very beneficial spiritually: not only for oneself but also for those countless beneficiaries of one's own professionalized, emotionally engaged, and dedicated service.

    The male native

    May spend a great portion of his life engaged in emotional conflict with women. Periods of rogesha-6 are particularly acute.

    One suffers from a habitually (Chandra) blaming, argumentative"diagnostic" emotional (Soma) narrative (Budha) which quickly (Budha) points out the flaws and failings of others -- especially the contractual partners.

    The mother of such a male has herself endured an early childhood life full of conflict, accusations, regret, and often bitter sorrow at the perceived wrongdoing of some parent.

    6 = 3rd-from-4th = mother's relatives

    The mother's relative's have inordinate influence upon the emotional development, and Chandra-6 is born with an affinity for exploitive, underpaid, overworked ministries of service.

    Swabhava of argumentative, accusatory Budha hosts By far the most difficult position for Chandra.

    Unbalanced emotional environment in childhood, characterized by parental (Chandra) disagreement and distrust, deconsecration, disavowal of promises, divorce, debt, self-doubt, devaluation of intuition and emotional instinct, dastardly deeds of the partner (betrayal of trust), not to mention emotional origin of immune-protective and digestive disorders.

    The parents (Chandra) are mismatched (6).

    The emotionally unbalanced parents * especially mother * are overworked often in exploitive employee or service roles. They acquire conditions of physical toxicity to match their emotional valence of disenfranchised

    One feels criticized , absorbs and internalizes conflict and illness, and reflects the external components of toxicity, disagreement, and imbalance in one's environment.

    Caretaker (Chandra) of victims: those in poverty, animosity, inequity, debt, or disease.

    Dispute (6) with parents (Chandra). Native often leave home (Chandra) early due to dispute.

    Parents ill and chronically overworked (6) especially mother

    One is Often falsely accused of being the cause of conflict.

    "Shoot the messenger."


    Chandra-6 reflects disagreement and inequity = brighter or dimmer mirroring according to the fullness of the Moon, and Soma's proximity to Rahu. Chandra-yuti-Rahu in 6 becomes notorious.

    This native does not create (Surya)"problems " but simply reflects (Chandra) the existing victimization logic present in the environment at birth.

    However, if Surya also in 6 (black Moon), one may personally help to create some brilliant center-stage conflicts of one's own. If Surya + Chandra-yuti-Budha in 6 = a virtual genius of problematicity .)

    • Deep emotional connection to experience of accusation, poverty, debt, and illness.

    Especially close emotional attachment to maternal relatives - although these may be the most vicious accusers.

    When Chandra occupies 6, one reflects the existing adversarial conditions in the social and material environment like a bright mirror for all to see. (Brighter or dimmer according to the fullness of the Moon.)

    For example, a child with Chandra-6 may"act out" or demonstrate or display the conflict between one's parents (Chandra) and become a scapegoat for the parents unacknowledged fighting. In the unfortunate karma of Chandra-6, such a child may be criticized for causing excess polarizing catalysis.

    Period of rogesha-6 = particularly prone to false accusation and blaming by those who wish to deflect attention away from true originators and toward a mirror-image of the problem.

    Similarly a novelist, essayist, film-maker, song-writer or other social critic may be fingered as the inciting cause of social conflict; However, such a native with Chandra in 6 is merely reflecting he the existing social controversy

    excellent placement for attorneys, social critics, social workers, police and military, those who represent, reflect, and rationalize conflicts via medical, legal, and pastoral service

    • However, Chandra-6 may fall prey to"victim mind" early in life due to past-life programming, and mature happiness does depend upon learning to separate the inner conflict narrative

    Chandra = in a swabhava of accusative, accounting, rationalizing, tale-telling Budha

    Chandra = passive, receptive, absorptive, and reflective. Unlike Chandra's son Budha who represents the human capacity for logical thought and verbal-gestural mentality, Chandra negotiates reality via the human faculty of intuitive feeling .

    Chandra is not necessarily irrational or illogical but rather Chandra = meta-logical.

    Chandra interprets all reality in a holistic, whole-body way that contains an element of rational response but which is generally reactive, responsive, and presumptive driven more by subconscious expectations and unmet needs and less by rational methods of analysis and inquiry.

    Unlike Budha, whose ratiocinations can lead the mind into false conclusions, Chandra's psycho-emotional response to the world is usually accurate -- according to Chandra-6 's subconscious expectations.

    However, when overlaid with Budha's narrative mentality, Chandra's absorptive-reflective function in 6 serves to mirror and highlight the painful, accusatory narratives of jealousy, domestic servitude, crime, exploitation, addiction, pollution, inequity, chronic imbalance causes disease, and all varieties of toxicity caused by ignorance of the location of the balance point in relationships.

    These miserable narratives are then absorbed, internalized into Chandra-6 's own larger"mind".

    The good news = through a combination of Seva and applied discrimination of a well--placed Budha, Chandra-6 can over time learn to distinguish between the reflected narrative of various dramatic external conflicts versus the natural placid internal peacefulness of the Earth-mother Moon.

    Naturally, this

    placement bears great caution in the company one keeps. Being exceptionally vulnerable to intuitive reception of the slightest conflict in one's immediate environment, and being also vulnerable to false accusation and blame due to so perfectly mirroring the conflicts of others, Chandra-6 must exercise discrimination in relationships.

    • One should seek the company only of purified personalities who have transcended the habit of projecting their conflicts upon others.

    • Psychic practices designed to reinforce and protect the astral-body aura will be be helpful in defending against unwanted projections

    • Seva offered to help those suffering illnesses and injustice will be highly educational and ultimately protective: one may observe via service to the less fortunate, the ongoing victimization narrative and endless tales of woe told by those who are ego-identified with marginalization, disempowerment, and despair

    • Overall However, this placement requires constant vigilance as nearly any period of the rogesha-6 or graha associated with rogesha-6 can trigger criticism or accusation of wrongdoing.

    Chandra = emotional predisposition toward of disappointment and dissolution of partnership

    Feelings are never incorrect; feelings simply respond to the environment.

    Yet feelings can be be severely over-determined by subconscious bondage to parallel life experience.

    Chandra in 6, responding to deep, historically rooted expectations of disputes, treachery, broken promises and disappointments, indicates a perpetual cycle (Chandra) of criticism, emotional pollution from angry or jealous people in the environment, disagreement, and repetition of the victim-narrative.

    Emotional reaction to the ever-present-conflict may prevent Chandra-6 from ever feeling happily balanced or accepted by the partner.

    Emotionally identified with:

    • Faustian bargains
    • excessive costs paid (victimization) or excessive profits taken (illegal trade)

    Sicknesses and injuries

    Typically Chandra-6 is persistently but non-fatally sick during most their short life. The ailments fluctuate and vary (Chandra flow) . Although frequent, sicknesses do not in themselves afflict the longevity. Look to the rogesha and ruler of 6th-from-Chandra for details of the psycho-physical imbalance conditions.

    If Mangala's drishti enters 6, this adds possibility of physical injury in addition to ailment. However, the default is emotional injury caused by disappointment in the faithlessness of the caretakers.

    Regardless of illness, one may live a long life. Decease occurs, as always, during period of maraka graha.

    When Chandra occupies bhava-6 * the radical lagna is located in the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra . One has a special affinity for 8th-matters such as hidden patterns, secret knowledge, and tantric or occult practices.

    Chandra-6 seeks comfort in problem-solving and is particularly sensitive to the sick, wounded, or victimized. This angle is a signature of the wounded healer, often found in healing ministries of service such as clinical medicine and social work, including the modern specialization of human-resources.

    The way the game is played * via the script: to evoke the shamanistic memories of other lifetimes and other identities (8), when Chandra occupies 6, the specific game scenario = those who have agreed to support and protect one (Chandra) have also agreed to mistreat and betray one (6).

    Certain Jyotisha placements can be especially challenging and uncomfortable until their core patterns and purposes are understood.

    Examples of such exhausting and frustrating situations include pre-aware environments of

    • Shani in bhava-8 (owned by anti-change Shani's adversary forward-moving Mangala), Surya in bhava-7 (owned by egocentric Surya's adversary alliance-seeking Zukra), or Chandra in bhava-6 (owned by mercurial Budha who intensely resents routinized Chandra).

    Rogabhava-6 is governed by mentalized Profess Budha who profoundly dislikes emotionally sensitive and reactive Professor Chandra

    Chandra in bhava-6 does not per se harm the marketplace revenues, the public reputation, the professional opportunities, the marriage, or the spiritual intelligence. The native may be creative, innovative, or competitive from other planetary sources. However, Chandra-6 creates a special task which is to move from a birth in which the caretakers fail to keep their promises and even become overtly adversarial, into a state of appreciation for their ability to mirror one's own interior imbalances (usually self distrust) and finally an efficient decision to forgive in order to clear the pathway to self-fulfillment.

    Darkness before the Dawn

    Difficult Jyotisha placement often follow the pattern of the darkness before the dawn.

    With Shani-8, it is often the darkness of social resistance to the unknown, fear of knowledge, and a crippling fear of change. Only when catastrophic upheaval forces a new identity does one discover the life-force vitality underneath the bony shell.

    With Surya-7, the darkness may feel like a grayed mirror that blocks out creativity and fun, due to a theatrical, egocentric partner appearing to consume all attentions; only when the marriage ends does one see one's own bright genius.

    With Chandra-6, it is only after neither home nor homeland, parent nor co-parent, schoolteacher nor police, nor any feigned guardian or shelter, have failed to uphold (6) their social agreement (7) to provide external support and nourishment, that one discovers a reliable internal rhythm supplying the steady pulse of service which does not depend upon any material contract, trust, or deal.

    Game rules: Chandra occupies 6

    There must be habitual, rhythmic, repeating (Chandra) scenarios and surroundings of exploitation, unfair contracts, misuse and abuse of servants, disappointed expectations, and other injustices (bhava-6)

    Chandra-figures such as mothers, caretakers, schoolteachers, patriots, parents, police, security officers, and other agents who are identified with guard-and-protect nurturance roles, must then (according to the rules of the game) demonstrate the unfair, inappropriate, un-contractual, imbalanced, adversarial, hostile, criminal and corrupt 6-angle behaviors.

    Importantly, one feels (Chandra) often unfairly treated when personally carrying-out caretaking-protective roles.

    Co-parents tend to be unreliable in matters of feeding or securing the house, the children or other vulnerable inhabitants of the shelter such as pets and elders). For Chandra-6, co-parents tend to ignore or neglect their caretaking trust (most typical) break their promises (6), or in rare extreme worst case may have criminal tendencies.

    If the protective duties are more of a policing or boundary-defense nature, the colleagues may be similarly unsupportive to the point of overt criminal acts. One may find that one's own home culture and roots-rhythms are not reliable, that the mother's relatives (6) are emotionally toxic, neglecting or accusing (typical) and not supportive as social agreements (7) would implicitly expect ( 6-12th-from-7th).

    Yet with Chandra-6 one is emotionally attached to the mother's relatives , and to servants and to animals of the household, However, Toxic or untrustworthy they may be.

    One may form an attachment (Chandra) to children of the second spouse (6 = 5th-from-2) yet such a child tends to become adversarial.

    One may feel attached to the public reputation or career duties attached to governance roles for a temple, university, or sangha (6 = 10th-from-9th) Yet, these responsibilities may be performed with little contractual support.

    Polluted Guardian Figures

    The overall business and marriage status of contracts during the lifetime depends upon bhava-7 and its ruler. But Chandra-6 shows that in matters of householding and caretaking , and particularly regarding one's own parents during childhood, emotional (Somana) trust in the stability, protection and care tends to be broken, disagreed, accused and toxified by polluted guardian figures. Chandra-6 does not damage the spousal function, but rather the guarding-nurturing functions. Therefore, one's spouse may be a loyal and engaged partner, Yet, in their role as a co-parent there is disappointment and accusation. The mother's relatives are often dishonest, disagreeable, or litigious.

    Even the homeland roots (Chandra) are less stable; and agents of the homeland such as foreign embassies are not helpful.

    The native rarely receives help from the grand-parents since Chandra-6 suggests a chronic lack of support from one's own parents or parents-in-law. If these agents do help, it is dysfunctional help. More often, parents, step-parents, schoolteachers, police, and other guardian-figures are not only unhelpful but may be explicitly hostile and accusing.

    Furthermore, the native (and one's mother) are likely beset with many illnesses and injuries from birth, and the daily domestic servitude of parenting-childcare increases the experience of ailment, jealousy, poverty, and a host of other disabilities associated with ancient patterns of injustice in human affairs.

    • For Makara - Draco radical Lagna, yuvatipathi-7 Chandra-6 is a strong suggestor of misery caused by mate's poor parenting that compounds an already unbalanced marital division of labor.

    Parents, Protectors, and Caretakers * Service Ministries

    Before the age of Chandra's maturity at age 24, there is a pronounced degree of domestic servitude and betrayal by precisely those entrusted with one's care. Those who break the contract (6) include Chandra-figures such as police, schoolteachers, guardians, and caretakers. Notable trust-breakers include the mother's relatives because 6 = 3rd-from-4th. After age 24, the feeling of victimization can mature into an acceptance of disappointment and exploitation as normal features of life.

    In addition to their unfair behaviors toward the native, 6-Chandra caretaker-figures may also serve with distinction in medical, military, and other service professions. Habitual parental neglect is often a consequence of parents-mother-caretaker pursuing a service profession and serving others while neglecting one's own children's needs.

    Their professionalized service may be socially respected, even while they may mistreat the native. Particularly when Chandra rules a public-respect bhava such as 1,4,7, 9, or 10 the disparity between the public perception of the Chandra-figures and the native's authentic emotional reality may provide Yet, another source of suffering.

    Chandra: distress and disappointment, goes way back

    Typically, the primary caregiver(s) do themselves suffer some species of illness, often physically diagnosable. Yet this is a lineage placement; the antecedents of the Chandra-parent's imbalance lie indeed in their own ill or injured parent (s). Understanding the ancient rhythms of sorrow in the emotional patterns of the family history can be key to utilizing this placement to best advantage.

    Depending upon Chandra's ruler, the emotionally based illness and injury may range from mental to emotional to physical to financial, social, and other expressions; However, the foundation of the disappointment, dissatisfaction and disagreement is always emotional and always traceable to deficient parenting.

    "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 Mahadasha and Chandra bhukti Chandra Mahadasha and Chandra bhukti

    Chandra bhukti generate emotional experiences characterized by Chandra's temporal bhava-6.

    The steady, rhythmic, ritualized, repeating-cycle of feelings is centered in social exploitation and class conflict, disease and imbalance conditions, litigious accusations, and (ideally) expressed via a ministry of service.

    Chandra bhukti are generally placid, albeit the bhava ruled by Chandra anchors the type of social activity and the material outcome.

    Emotionally most comfortable in unbalanced, inequitable, conflicted situations including crime, poverty, disease, and environmental pollution.

    Usury, treachery, betrayal

    Often either a perpetrator or a victim of unfair penalties or usurious loans.

    Depending in consciousness level, seeks emotional engagement in either (1) exploiter-exploited victimization (2)performing a ministry of service on behalf of victims.

    Emotional condition = "Serve or suffer."a committed service lifestyle will be satisfying; but no other pursuits will provide emotional health.

    Lives a somewhat disagreeable life.

    • The conventional expectation that human emotional satisfaction (7) will obtain in marriage are often disappointed because Chandra occupies 12th-from-7th.

    • Similarly, one may fail to obtain validation (Zukra) via social approval for physical body, personality attributes, expressions of individualization, and other self-focused activities.


    Perpetual emotionally based interpersonal conflict = not inherent in Soma-6, but due to Chandra's reflective nature it does at first seem so!

    • Helping the poor, hungry, ignorant, exploited, and other victims of injustice will be enormously medicinal.

    • Via Seva, one may begin to detect the patterns of classic victim-mind.

    • With help of bantering bantering Budha's reasoning skills, one may, having learned to identify the implicit narrative, learn to discriminate (Budha) between the core self (Chandra) vs the external conflict which resides in the outer environment.

    In 6, in a rashi of Surya = uncomfortable for children. Less lucky in life. Wants to feel admired, center-stage in a high-conflict political or theatrical settings, including medical drama especially of the heart and spine. Excellent for pediatric physician, especially congenital disease, cardiology and spinal specialties.

    In a rashi of Chandra = uncomfortable for the parents. Breast illness of mother. Overweight, malfunction of the liquid-balancing systems of the body. Deep emotional imbalance, usually expressed via misguided parenting and caretaking that maintains a dysfunctional family. Life is a soap opera. Leaky aura and poor emotional boundaries maintain a lifelong state of exhaustion from chronic illness, debt, and disagreement; but also attracted to and comfortable with codependency and other malfunctions of the protective instinct.

    In a rashi of Mangala for example Theory of Relativity 1879-1955 Physics Albert Einstein = competitive, adversarial, attached to brothers and cousins. A sexually unbalanced person; needs vigorous movement to release conflict energy. Seeks conditions of exploitation and domestic (Chandra) servitude (6). Passive-aggressive. May be moody and argumentative, despite outward success. The mother is active in business but rarely is she happy. Drishti of Mangala may bring wealth via exploitive business practice.

    In a rashi of Budha = exceptionally argumentative . Must have some enemy, real or imagined, against whom to rail . Attached to younger siblings. Depending on the condition of Budha, this one can talk incessantly about poverty, servitude, inequity and the travails of the world without much lasting improvement. Supportive placement for single-issue politician, a poverty lawyer or a divorce attorney.

    In a rashi of Guru one may be a priestly teacher albeit an unappreciated one. electro-magnetic emotionally comfortable in hi-conflict situations wherein Chandra-6 may practice a religious tolerance even while animosity and toxic arguments take their toll.

    Excellent for a guru of the philosophy of war

    = Makara= Vimala Yoga, considered as a favorable dissolver of disagreements. Generally a supportive position for a male, somewhat more problematic for a female due to complications of parenting, but overall one does not sustain a conflict for long; it is as if one simply forgets and moves on to greater responsibilities. In Kumbha: lagnesha in 6 is never easy, but the lagnesha is a good planet wherever He goes. When He goes into Ari Bhava, there is a destiny for service in environments of high-intensity networking and systems work, ideally on behalf of those who are social marginalized or otherwise blocked from participative opportunity.

    Medicine, Mother's Relatives, Marital Conflict, Inequity and Exploitation, Unfairness, Toxicity Pollution and Ill-feelings

    Strong emotional attachment to service, medicines, the underclass, and The mother's relatives (6).

    • Affinity for medicines And substances with balance-correcting properties, according to the rashi.

    • Chandra-6 becomes a manager (Budha) and soother of conflicts in marriage and partnership, dishonesty in contracts and promises, inequity in situations where balance and harmony is expected but not obtained.

    • It is a diplomatic position, but a thankless one.

    • The beneficiaries of one's nurturing service are the poor and the powerless. Depending on the rashi the nature of the toxicity or exploitation will vary. For example.

    • Emotionally, Chandra-6 makes many mistakes in life. It is a position of guilt and regret. If conscious, also a position of profound forgiveness.

    In rashi of a strong Guru, may become a teacher of medicine. (Any variety of medicine, from bush doctor to homeopathic to allopathic to Ayurvedic and beyond.)

    In a rashi of strong Mangala, may become a surgeon.

    (A graha is strong for career when it rules the 10th navamsha + either 10th from Lagna or 10th-from-Chandra.)

    Mother involved with service to the ill, impoverished, or disadvantaged; or Mother is herself a servant.

    • Mother = a nurse, pharmacist, servant, police officer, an agricultural worker, a social worker

    Inner emotional conflict may express as physical disagreement discomfort disease

    due to fundamentally adversarial expectations of human relationships and sensitivity to presence of dispute in the environment, which originates in childhood (Chandra).

    The mother's relatives (6) are often promise-breakers, jealous and contentious.

    Never a calm person due to internal accusations and blaming. Often the parents of this child did blame the child for the child's natural sicknesses (perhaps imputing a moral cause to illness) or the parents may have pressed the child into domestic servitude at a very early age, and indeed this habit of parents treating their children as household servants (and nothing more) is Typically, a generational pattern in the Chandra-6 nativity.

    Chandra-6 may feel at war with oneself emotionally, in the great struggle to resolve all conflicts through absorption of the imbalances of others and responding to unfairness (6) with service and nurturing care.

    Thus the potential for a Chandra-6 nativity to develop emotionally-based illness is generally well developed. Ailments typically focus on imbalance located in the paired organs or paired limbs or paired systems (such as the pair = sympathetic + parasympathetic nervous systems) which indicated by the rashi of Soma.

    E.g., a basic and incomplete list:

    1. Chandra-Meza in bhava-6 * pineal-pituary glands

    2. Chandra-Urisha * uttama * moolatrikona 4-30* comforted by precious values * settled into rhythmic gathering * needs luxury * in bhava--6 * eyes, jaw, mouth, thyroid

    3. Chandra-Mithunaya * comforted by messaging * settled into rhythmic communications * needs mentality

      ya-6 * arms, lungs, hands, nose

    4. Chandra-Karkata * comforted by maternal soothing * settled into tidal rhythms * needs to protect in bhava-6 * stomach, gall-bladder, breasts

    5. Chandra-Simha * comforted by creative display * settled into dramatic rhythms * needs attention located in bhava-6 * heart, chambers of the heart; hridaroga (emotional heart-ache)

    6. Chandra-Kanya-6 * small intestine, large intestine, colon

    7. Chandra-Thula * comforted by ritual negotiation of agreements * sensitive to balance * needs to trade in bhava-6 * adrenals, pancreas, kidneys

    8. Chandra-Vrischika-6 * ovaries, testes, uterus, prostate, liver

    9. Chandra-Dhanuzya-6 * pelvis, hips, sacral plexus, sciatic nerve

    10. Chandra-Makara - Draco * comforted by hierarchy * sensitive to class-status * needs ritual ordering * in bhava-6 * bones, knees, cartilage

    11. Chandra-Kumbha * comforted by networks * sensitive to connectivity * needs community in bhava-6 * ankles, sympathetic nervous system, parasympathetic nervous system, skin

    12. Chandra-Meena * comforted by ancestral guidance * settled into rhythmic intuition * needs sanctuary in bhava-6 * feet, lymph glands (in neck and arms)

    Chandra in Bhava-6 grants strong emotional intuition in the professional fields of medicine, drugs legal-and-illegal, social work, mani-money-lending, conflict-management, criminal and civil litigation, pollution-toxicity, and military strategies.

    Soma in Bhava-6 can make Chandra-6 native feel sick during Chandra's planetary periods, but Soma also can indicate an exceptionally gifted intuitive healer whose methods may contradict (6) the dominant medical paradigm.

    Expect abundant social conflict in this life. Yet, if Chandra is benevolent one will acquire extraordinary sensitivity to various states of imbalance and learn to avoid most polarizing catalysis before it starts.

    The mother of Chandra-6 may not provide reliable or consistent nurturing, due . to her own physical or emotional health imbalance. Typically, the imbalance originates with the mother's mother, and earlier down the female line.

    The mother passes along her unresolved grief to her child (usually unconsciously) in the form of fundamental electro-magnetic emotional expectations of abandonment, conflict, and loss of agreement e.g. destruction of partnership and divorce.

    4th-from-Chandra represents the mother's mother. If Dharmesha-9 = a dushthamsha lord or Dharmesha-9 = a natural challenger papagraha or Dharmesha-9 occupies a dusthamsha, the emotional nurturing lineage has been disturbed at the maternal grandmother's generation. If Bhava-12 is also prone toward production of polarizing catalysis, consider the embedded, subconscious emotional expectation of conflict and loss of agreement to extent to the mother's mother's mother (!)

    Disagreement, disappointment, emotional servitude

    Chandra-6 (in any rashi) may be particularly adversarial and suspicious toward economic earning systems, rules of the marketplace, and regulated profits

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

    Naturally, the qualities of the 6/8 angle between Chandra-6 and bhava-11 are affected by the presence of any graha in bhava-11, the vriddhipathi, and incoming drishti.

    Chandra-6 feels emotional distrust and accusation of malfeasance toward the structure of economic systems and the rules for profitability, such as gains of revenue, salary, bonus, dividend, commission, royalty,

    Specifically the mother may have been harmed (or perceived so) by her struggle to earn profits, salaries, or other sustaining marketplace rewards. She may have been deeply exhausted by her servitude, made ill, or exploited unfairly.

    Depending on conditions in Bhava-11, there may be affective difficulties due to disagreements with the elder brother (if any), one's network of friends in community, or the imbalance arises during the process of earning income.

    Generally, Chandra-6 = chronically underpaid due to an inferior position in the marketplace of goods and ideas.

    • The labhapathi will produce emotional conditions of domestic servitude (giving more than one receives) during its Vimshottari period. The elder brother, the community of peers, or the source of income, are a particular agents of that problem of disappointment or exploitative overwork.

    • The marketplace rulership continues to demand more in service than it rewards.


    • Bhava-11gains and earnings = 6th-from-Chandra; rendering a naturally discomfort in the marketplace of goods and services can arise.

    • Unless there are strong corrective graha in 11, one may feel emotionally unsuited to carry out the requirements of achievement in the earnings marketplace.

    • As result, one may feel enslaved to the task of earning an income.


    Chandra-6 can correct the imbalance in the female line through conscious forgiveness in emotionally peaceful times, and behavioral interventions in emotionally warlike times.

    Intensive Seva = selfless service to those less fortunate, targeted toward those suffering from precisely the type of emotional conflict and relationship imbalance that Chandra-6 is experiencing in this life, will yield substantial remediation of the condition.

    Chandra-6 suggests loss-of-balance in contractual partnerships, whether professional or personal.

    Chandra-6 sustains an emotional affinity for imbalanced environments, social conflict, warfare, pollution, and service toward those engaged with experiences of polarizing catalysis.

    When cooperating closely with other graha, Chandra-6 may produce these outcomes:

    • Chandra yuti Budha * elaborate arguments and rationalization in the blaming of spouse or partner for one's own inner turmoil. Verbal skills deployed in service of usury, exploitation, or breaking of contracts.

    • Chandra yuti Kuja * violent or strident physical expression of the conflict, business instinct to develop exploitive industries such as trading in humans, and involvement with poisons/drugs.

    • Chandra yuti Guru * highly self-indulgent and prone to self-medicate with food and drink; this combined with expansive fellow-feeling for the victim class; a questionable friend but a powerful enemy.

    • Chandra-yuti-Shani * emotional repression and often an alienated mother. The mother herself is in domestic servitude, ill or victimized. Emotional starvation and excess analysis manifests in health disorders.

    • Chandra yuti Zukra * addiction to sensual attractions. Sweet-natured, but a law-breaker; addicted to sense pleasures, and unfaithful to agreements.

    • Chandra yuti Surya * a hard worker in medicine, social work, or public service; socially identified with underclass clients or behaviors . If Surya is dignified, noble leadership in times of social conflict.


    A man experiences psycho-emotional animosity or exploitation in his childhood relationship to the mother, who is psychologically or physically ill. The child is often in service to the mother, likely caring for her in sickness or managing the mother's duties. The result is the mother-child relationship gets off-balance.

    Child feels that mother is either too much or too little: she alternates between smothering and absence. There may be suppressed anger toward the mother, but also a strong bond with the mother's relatives, especially her siblings.

    Moon in Bhava-6 suggests that at the level of subconscious memory, the man expects to be victimized by women, and develops many strategies to attract women yet prevent them from getting too close. If with Zukra, may self-medicates with toxins to reduce the emotional pressure.

    Anxiety in expectation of loss of balance in relationships (12th from 7th). Tends to absorb the disagreements into ones interior victim narrative.

    • Parenting (Chandra) issues due to disagreement in the marriage (12th from 7th)

    Lineage of criticism (6) in the female family culture (Chandra).

    The Chandra-6 woman = similar experience to the Chandra-6 man. Budha rogesha-6 = gender-neutral.

    Woman = adversarial relationship with her own mother, who pressed the young girl into caretaking service very early in life. Mother = critical and blaming of the daughter; maternal grandmother probably was critical of one's own mother.

    • the mother = caretaker of those in conflict: nurse, doctor, druggist, social worker, or police

    Health concerns for women occur in the Moon's body areas: breasts, upper arms, lymph and endocrine systems, reproductive system.

    • water-Weight fluctuations, emotionally caused. Ayurvedic Kapha dosha.

    Toxicity issues, emotional and physical, due entirely to suppressed anxiety and the habit of absorbing imbalance in relationships into oneself.

    Compulsive regulation of the diet or the complete neglect of attention to food. Digestive sensitivity, allergies, food issues. Strong attachment to the mother's siblings, but not always a happy outcome.

    Effects may be partially mitigated if Soma rules an auspicious Sthana.


    • Mother's servitude

    The mother herself hails from a conflicted (6) early childhood home (Chandra). She adopts a lifestyle of service to others even while she herself is frequently ill due to her unresolved psycho-emotional conflicts.

    In pursuit of some She may toil unceasingly for insufficient reward. She endures a chronic state of"work-life" imbalance which may eventually become self-medicated via alcohol, drugs, or other chemically toxic (6) substance in the attempt to re-balance the state of inner accusations and blaming.

    The emotional motive behind her servitude is generally self-defensive (Chandra).

    She is generally too busy serving others to be able to interact emotionally with her own family.

    Self-defensive Motives toward service may be characterized by the rashi of Chandra:

    1. ego-confirming (Chandra in a rashi of Surya)

    2. protective-nurturing (Chandra in a rashi of Chandra)

    3. competitive-innovative (Chandra in a rashi of Mangala) = Theory of Relativity 1879-1955 Physics Albert Einstein

    4. communicative-argumentative (Chandra in a rashi of Budha)

    5. religious-charitable (Chandra in a rashi of Guru) 10th-from-9th +10th from 9th; Chandra-6 for Thula lagna = the most dharmic and also most professionalized]

    6. luxuriating-negotiating (Chandra in a rashi of Zukra)

    7. material-survivalist (Chandra in a rashi of Shani)


    • habitual Illness, injury

    • rhythms of chronic and acute pain

    • culture of medication, self-medication

    Anxiety disorders, passive-aggression , specific characteristics according to the rashi/drishti, emotional imbalance.

    • Chandra-6 = emotional disposition to habitual conflict but also much stamina in those environments which are characterized by habitual conflict.

    • Health struggles for both parents.

    • The parents may be so much awkward with each other (6, imbalance) or so ill or so much in domestic servitude or addiction that Chandra-6 grows up accustomed to slavery (to a person or to a drug) disagreement, and exploitation or illness.

    The life overflows with many and various disagreements.

    • Yet, Chandra-6 is not overcome by one's enemies, nor by poverty, nor by disease.

    • Disease may be acute or chronic but there is always a habitual rhythm of life which accommodates the illness, weakness, or disability from injury.

    • The mother, and also Chandra-6, can remain in service even while enduring some type of profound personal suffering such as a painful chronic ailment.

    One may not win, but neither will one lose. Bhava-6 = an upachaya house. This native triumphs with age and tough experience, through developing neutral realism regarding the dark side of human nature, and becoming skillful in methods of self-protection. At the highest skill levels, a compassionate servant of humanity who reaches into the very heart of darkness: the fear of death.

    Self-medication to numb interior conflict. If Chandra yuti Zukra = spoiled = self-medication may extend to self-indulgent drug or alcohol addiction.

    Reflects the conflicted social management of potions, chemicals, and drugs . Excellent placement for pharmacist, herbalist, physician, and curadero.

    • Fluctuating digestive conditions and as a result prone to frequent self-medicating change of diet .

    Look to rogesha-6 to see whether this attraction makes a gifted medicinalist-clinician, or whether the prognosis is the less favorable, long term drug use pattern.

    8th-related secrecy polarizing catalysis from siblings, especially the immediately younger one

    3rd-from-Chandra = Siblings = dushthamsha randhra-bhava-8

    • Relations with the immediate younger sibling may be damaged by secrecy and intrigue, because 3rd-from-Chandra becomes the mysteriously dark and hidden source of sudden, forced changes = randhra bhava.

    • The parents = polarizing catalysis by illness and conflict due to Chandra-6

    • emotional difficulties with siblings especially the immediately younger one (8) and the one three below in rank (12)

    If no graha in 8,

    • the relationship might be sustainable although the affairs of the younger sibling are masked and Chandra-6 may feel (Chandra) that the younger sibling is hiding information from Chandra-6 .

    If subha-graha in 8

    • the relationship can be pleasant even while the affairs of the younger sibling remain largely hidden. For example, the two siblings might live in different countries or be otherwise unaware of each others daily reality, Yet, the younger sibling remains an agent of ease and comfort who shares inheritance with Chandra-6 .

    If papa-graha in 8 (Shani, Rahu-Ketu, Mangala; lords of dusthamsha)

    Karmic debt and repayment

    When Chandra occupies the maha-dushtamsha, considerable karma repayment = on schedule in regard to sheltering and caretaking activities.

    Although it is necessary to proceed through a series of parenting, school-teaching, protecting, caring, and property-owning environments in order to burn off the karmic ignorance and transform same into wisdom, it can be hard going in this life-sustaining business of caring for others.

    A broken yoke

    In matters of bhava-6, particularly when graha reside there, Chandra-6"in servitude" does most of the work in partnerships.

    The Other has a karmic script to disregard the value of the contribution of the Chandra-6 partner, and the Chandra-6 partner indeed expects to be emotionally exploited.

    The cycle of exploitation in relationships and the social invalidation caused by unappreciated contributions can be interrupted by consciousness; However, the Chandra-6 native will not leave the habit (Chandra) of serving others. Rather, servitude (unconscious, victim) matures into service (seva, wisdom).

    One-way street * dissolution of appreciation Energy goes out from the graha in 6. Yet due to the dissipation of trust and breaking of promises which occur in the 12th-from-7th, partner-confirmation and social-approval which would normally be expected as a grateful response to services rendered will rarely flow back in.

    Lower expectations = better health

    As a general rule, there is a repeating pattern of disappointed expectations (6), disputes, treachery, broken promises (6), and failed agreements (6) in matters of one's own parents * especially mother, any sort of property ownership whether land, sea, or vehicle; nurturing and nutrient; emotional security and establishment of roots. One's own parenting environment is also affected by the script of exploitation and imbalance caused by needy shelter-seekers, the poor, and the sick.

    The key to mental-emotional (Budha-6-Chandra) health = to appreciate that one is highly unlikely to receive much recognition, reward, or repayment for emotional investment in the home or the homeland.

    No matter how profoundly patriotic (Chandra) protective (Chandra) or deeply caring for the weak-and-needy one may be, the scheduled beneficiaries of one's parental outpouring of loving-care are not intended to acknowledge the gift.

    The environment Bhava-6 = toxic, unfair, victim-minded, enslaved, addicted, criminalized -- and often warlike -- full of blaming, accusations, litigation, and endless interpersonal conflict.

    Realistic Expectations

    It is unrealistic to expect validation (7) from the behaviors produced by karaka-graha in (6)

    Naturally, when Chandra the center of one's emotional well-being is born into the Satkona, the very bhava of 'dissolution' 12 of fairness 7, there can be a great deal of frustration in regard to the mother, as well as a rather chronic rootlessness or difficulty in establishing a permanent home. It makes sense to live in a way that does not require complex property ownership, that does not build unsustainable expectations of caretakers and that self-honors one's extensive but unacknowledged behavior of caring for and sheltering miscellaneous extremely needy people.

    it is the nature of the maha-dusthamsha that for Chandra-6 with nourishing Chandra in 6, the more one gives, the more 'needy others' will take. There is no opportunity for graha in 6 to maintain equitable, just, or mutually satisfactory emotional contracts. Legal contracts with very carefully stipulated material terms of agreement may have been success if the yuvatipathi-7 is strong. However, the core, root, unconditional, folk-based, security-providing, sense-of-belongingness relationships are corrupted in this life. For a purpose!

    Affinity with ill, conflicted, underclass, victims, disproportionate environments

    Chandra-6 feels affinity with the working class, service class, and criminals; victims of pollution

    victims of pollution and toxic medication

    the disenfranchised

    the financially, physically or socially crippled

    the chronically impoverished and sick

    Chandra in 6th-from-radix-lagna automatically places the lagna in the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra .

    This lifetime involves considerable animosity and disagreement (6) within a tantrik environment (sudden changes) which induce ongoing transformation of identity.

    The physical appearance is somewhat benefitted through the change-agency of lagna in 8th-from-Soma, which urges the cells of the physical body toward destruction and regeneration. Chandra-6 retains a more youthful appearance, darker hair (Mangala influence of 8th-from) and faster recovery from life-threatening illness.

    There are numerous threats to life during periods of the lord of the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra These are mainly threats to the emotional identity but also can be physical downstream to the Chandra-ruled bodily systems such as body liquids needed for digestion, cyclic hormone production, liquid-transport, and drainage of lymph.

    Tendency to misappropriate or steal items related to the home, foods and nurturing, caretaking and sheltering, parenting and supporting or protecting others. E.g., may misappropriate food or home supplies. May misrepresent one's behavior in the parenting role

    Chandra-6 = karmicly predisposed to be exploited by caretakers, nurturing Feminine Nativities or mother-types .

    The mother or mother-type primary caretaker (and those who fraudulently pose as a mother) are themselves victimized, drained by their work, pressed into service (by survival needs or by their own desires).

    Relationships with caretaker-figures throughout life are negatively impacted. The maternal figures in one's life are generally tired and overworked.

    Mother-types tend to validate Chandra-6 only through Chandra-6 's service work, and a child with this placement may find that the mother mishandles or disregards the child's physical health.

    Ironically, such a mother is often a worker in health services or public welfare support. This mother may offer top quality professional service to outsiders, Yet, her own children become those to whom she can attend only when she has completed all other duties. The mother is a worker in some outside workplace; the children are the children of a servant. Her service may be highly professionalized if rogesha -6 is benevolent. However, in the case of this mother,"the cobbler's children have no shoes ".

    Emotional victimization of the type indicated by Soma's rashi, drishti, and position of the bhava pati.

    Mother, sisters, aunts, grandmother, female supervisors and teachers, and wife in her role as caretaker, are all in general problematic due to their tendency to place work and service above all else. Fraudulent mother-substitutes, if the lord of Chandra = 6th-from. Jealousy and servitude; resentment toward women and their emotional demands.

    Should the lord of Chandra be ill-disposed by rashi or occupy the shad-ashtaka 6-8 from Chandra, the mother may be chronically ill.

    Inner emotional argumentation in the mother's character, most notably a maternal tendency toward self-criticism. Phlegm build-up in the physical body, gives a tendency toward sticky hold-on to old emotions.

    Instinct to buffer emotional conflict via drug and food intoxication, or by dieting toward starvation. Ancient past-life memories [Chandra] of exhaustion through slavery, overwork, starvation, vicious disease can interrupt the happiness of the current lifetime.

    Repeating patterns of occasional severe illness, from which Chandra-6 recovers (perhaps with some lingering, underlying weakness). Irritable temperament due to emotional drain. Overworked.

    Weakness when manageable presents opportunities for growth.

    Depending on Chandra's lordship, may bring benefits to work in service ministry. Particularly good for careers in health care, child care, restaurant, social work, science, compassionate service toward those less fortunate. A caring person who is nevertheless exploited. Deep sympathy toward servants and animals. Can become a great liberator through parental, nurturing care of others.

    More difficult for a man, who finds that the women in his life turn into enemies. Fundamental (although perhaps unacknowledged) animosity toward the mother. Deep resentment of women overall.

    May be slightly easier for the female, who accepts a service role more comfortably within most cultures and who will often be sick but may also heal others in their need.

    Diseases of lymph, watery systems of the body, of breasts, chest, digestive system, blockage in fluid body systems such as 'stroke' -- all due to emotional resentment maintained via the ongoing inner argument. Release the argument and the disease will resolve.

    One may feel victimized or wronged by the mother, through the female lineage in one's family, by female servants, nurses, caretakers, babysitters, social workers, cooks, and service workers in a motherly role. Illness and accident or health polarizing catalysis of the left eye, or of the breasts and stomach.

    The mother's relatives suffer emotional imbalance, due to polarizing catalysis with their own mother, which makes them argumentative, self-defensive, adversarial, belittling, and critical in their nurturing attempts. One is emotionally attached to the mother and her siblings, but the effect of the maternal relationships is harmful overall.

    Some tendency toward petty thievery due to bhava-6 = loss of social agreement. Chandra may steal (often inadvertently or unintentionally) items for the home, for nurturing the weak, for creating shelter and feathering the next.

    Habitual psycho-emotional pain * for what purpose?

    One born with radical Chandra-6 has scheduled precisely these experiences. One then develops a higher consciousness via these experiences. Indeed due to the failure of the expected caretakers in their customary roles, emotional distress is so much heightened that a normal human cannot ignore or choose not to respond to the stress. (An exception might be Ketu-yuti-Chandra-6 that could have a high enough dose of Ketu-detachment to succeed in ignoring the accusations and pain.)


    It may seem masochistic from a mundane viewpoint

    Yet, this mechanism tends to push one into a ministry of service under the rationalization (6) that if one cannot expect happiness in one's own life, then at least one can bring some benefit to the lives of others.

    Ironically, serving others with similar or worse problems indeed brings one into clarity about the part of the game which involves deception, betrayal, illness and injury, lying and perjury, argument and accusation, criticism and analysis with the specific Chandra-identified qualities of emotional pain and feelings of sorrow.

    QUOTATION commentary of Das / Bepin Behari

    "... dogged with persistent difficulties.

    Often you are endangered

    • and may get mixed up with criminals and anti-social elements;

    you suffer great financial difficulties

    • and may even be involved in public litigation.

    Your physical health may not be strong,

    • but there will be great mental expansion, intellectual development and moral stamina.

    Even during periods of acute physical and financial difficulty

    • you will succeed in securing help from providential sources.

    You will contribute to social progress and command great respectability,

    • but personally you will have much to complain about.

    You are intelligent

    and have an overwhelming influence against the most powerful enemies.

    • However, strong they may be, ultimately they surrender to you.
    • Every repeated attack they make happens to be a misfire.
    You may not be devoted to your mother
    • or indifferent to her. ...
    Apprehension from enemy;
    • delicate; poor appetite,
    • passions subdued,
    • easily excited, lazy and inactive.
    • You may be short-lived, dull,
    • be of uncertain health, loss of appetite;
    • or feel slighted .
    Sharp vision, brave and bold, cruel and unkind,
    • no progeny,
    • strong but lean,
    • strong desire but can not pro-create. [BPL note: if Guru drishti is received into Chandra, into radical lagna or into putra-bhava, indeed children can arrive]

    Enemy sign causes more enemies;

    Moon in depression sign causes cheerlessness,

    • you may remain sick and ailing.
    • You may suffer diseases of the stomach .


    Whatever be the valor of enemies,

    • you will always conquer them.

    • They will not raise their heads again before you."
