BPHS Sarga 12, Shloka-4

" A benefic in Lagna will give a pleasing appearance, while a malefic will make one bereft of good appearance.

Felicity of the body will be enjoyed, if Lagna is drishtied by, or yuti with a benefic."

In all your designs you will succeed, and light will shine on your path.

opera singer Maria Callas

Benevolent personality with a jovial humor and expansive, generous flesh-kernel bodyform. A feminine nativity may almost certainly produce or acquire children whom she greatly humanizes and inclusively supports (barring harsh drishti or Surya-5).

One may have several distinctive and well-developed identities, including multiple names or profiles which allow one to integrate easily into a variety of environments.

  • UK-PM Global Alliance 1953- Tony Blair [economic-systematic Kṛttikā-3] [Guru-yuti-Mangala] [Guru-1 parivartamsha Shukra-11] TB has worn many hats-of-Shukra (lagnesha, uttama, activates 10th navamsha). Hats include UK-PM ten years, bank advisor (Shukra treasuries), international diplomat (Shukra diplomacy). In addition, TB has served as university instructor [Guru] and patron of religious alliances (Guru doctrine).

The feminine-agent with Guru in kalpasthāna-1 is often deeply identified with her husband.


[nīcha] Guru husband may have a central role for the wifely-figure, but he has less power in the world.

  • UK Queen 1819-1901 Empress Victoria-1 spoke endlessly of her love, trust, and admiration for her husband Prince Albert. Believing deeply in his abilities [active Kuja rules 7th-from-Chandra] QV lobbied intensely for PA to receive official governance appointments. QV wanted to raise Albert's respect in Parliament [Makara]. Alas, nicha-Guru rogesha was beset by conflict and perceived injustice. Although PA lived a luxurious lifestyle by the standards of the day [minus indoor plumbing] he felt pressed into servitude by his married status.

  • Cleopatra 1932-2011 AIDS activist Elizabeth Taylor [governing-regulatory Aśleṣa-2] [Guru-1 mutual drishti Rahu-9] [hierarchical Aśleṣa-2] [Guru-Karkata-1 occupies professional 10th-from-Chandra] Married eight times, ET demonstrated a profound identification [1] with each of her husbands. All of the men except for the final alliance were well-known in the areas receiving drishti from Guru-1 - either 5-dramatists/gamblers, 7-deal-makers, or 9-celebrity politicians. ET often said that she believed in marriage [uchcha Guru].

  • D'eux 1968- balladeer Celine Dion [Surya-8 parivartamsha Guru-1] According to Ms. Dion, her husband Rene was her first and only love. CD publicly spoke of her adoration toward him. After his death, she declared it impossible to love any other. Nevertheless, he remained a background figure as her manager and business partner. CD's public career was far more visible than his.

Generosity of spirit .

Particularly helpful for when Brihaspati rules fortunate amsha.

[Guru-Mesha] [dikbala] rules 9-12

  • USA-Gov-FL 1953- offshore finance Jeb Bush [trading-bargaining Bharani-3] [Guru-1 parivartamsha Mangala-12] ecclesiastical doctrine , his father, his invisible international investments, and his sangha affliation form a substantial part of JB's identity

Guru-Mithuna = yuvati-pati-7 + karmesha-10 = expands career recognition

[Guru-Kanya] = bandesha-4 + yuvati-pati-7 = expands property ownership-stewardship , vehicles, schooling

Guru-Vrishchika = dhana-pati-2 + vidya-pati-5 = expands entreasurement, especially via political and speculative means

[Guru-Dhanus] = lagnesha-1 + bandesha-4 [Hamsha Yoga] expands physical vitality and homes-vehicles (Outcomes depending naturally upon any graha in 1-and-4)

  • England-Queen 1533-1603 Armada Elizabeth-1-Tudor [Guru-2 occupies champion-dominating Mūla-1] [mūlatrikoṇa] ET operated an international [Guru] court of politics. She offered splendid entertainments [5]. Her understanding of romance and pageantry [5] won ET mmuch applause [Guru-2 rules 5]. Her treasury grew [Guru-2 rules-2] as a result of cultivating the admiration [5] of similarly entitled speculators [5] throughout Europe.

[Guru-Kumbha] = vriddhi-pati-11 + dhanapati-2 = expands both income and savings

Guru-Meena = lagnesha-1 + karmesha-10 = expands physical vitality and career visibility

Splendid for singing, declamations, reciting poetry, and development of personality related to multiplicity of languages.

Generous Physique

Except when Shani drishti is cast into Tanubhava-1, the presence of Guru-1 may provide exceptional physical expansion. Associated with diseases of water retention, excessive food intake that may overtax the digestive system, and natural .

Stout examples

Stoutness reduced by a Shani drishti into indriya-lagna:

Even one who was slender or athletic in youth may struggle to preserve their adolescent leanness [Budha] as maturity develops the expansive tendencies of Brihaspati.

Expansive fleshly tendencies may be adjusted if other graha occupy the lagnar.


Guru-1 naturally prefers the easy way of doing things. Shani drishti to lagna may provide more discipline and Shani drishti to Chandra may provide more emotional reticence. However, normally the Guru-1 placement is an"open door" into which stream opportunities and easy access to wisdom. It is an inherently religious placement. Even in times of great sorrow, Guru-1 grants easy access to the consolation of philosophy.

Brihaspati in indriya-lagna generally maintains positive expectations of life, and does well in the life via developing benevolent intentions and good cheer. Exceptionally generous. (However Guru is constrained in a rashi of Shani or when accepting drishti from Shani) Appreciated by others, including the gods. Happy, jovial, attractive, affluent. Without other work-ethic drishti, may become an easy-going Couch Potato.

In lagna = 11th-from-3rd, Guru indicates gain from siblings, from communications, from expansive and inclusive mentality. (The earthen body is the result of mental processes on the causal plane.)


As the karaka for language, Guru in Tanu Bhava indicates a natural facility with human languages, both spoken and literary. Even lacking support from formal education ( polarizing catalysis in bandhusthāna) Guru-1 often indicates that child who demonstrates easy fluency in a variety of tongues.

With drishti from Budha or Shani, such a gifted natural linguist may also be inclined toward study. When disciplined study is combined with the natural ease, Guru-1 can yield truly stupendous accomplishments in language, literature, linguistics and general humanistic understanding of civilization and culture.

Guru-1 is inclusive, expansive, and so philosophical that one may be nearly incapable of discriminating against those from less fortunate backgrounds. Barring drishti from papagraha, charitable and generous by naturer.


Regardless of the socially recognized accomplishments, one holds a sincerely philosophical view of human culture and civilizations, in which language plays the essential role of communicating truth (while never itself being the truth).

Even under very difficult circumstances, the Guru-1 native is well liked. Many infractions can be tolerated by the superiors.

Due to charitable [Guru] acts in parallel lives , special capabilities flow into the social-physical attribute-package (body) from the two bhava ruled by Guru.

  • Wikileaks 1971- Julian Assange [Guru Vṛścika-1] special capability of 2 (knowledge) and 5 (independent unique intelligence; gaming) . Charitable intent, protected by [dikbala] Guru-in lagna.

If Brihaspati is afflicted by conjunction with either Rahu or Ketu, the fruitful fertility of Guru may be altered.

Brihaspati = the Karkaka for husband in a wifely nativity

Guru-1 central identification with husband-figure

Typically when Guru occupies the indriya-lagna for a feminine nativity, the husband is a powerfully important element - perhaps a very predominantly important element - in the woman's personality and social identity. The woman may describe her husband as a great and defining love mate. Much depends on the characteristics of Guru via bhava-activating rulership, rashi location, and graha-yuti.

Often, the female meets her life partner in an athletic competition or body-musculature intensive setting, such as hunting, or fashion modeling, or other body display.

The partner's identification with physical genetic lineage is important to her, and the partner's ability to continue a particular genetic line, which generates a specific type of lineage appearance , may form the basis of the union.

  • First marriage for feminine-figure characterized by focused attention to the physical appearance, muscular athletic fitness, "battle-ready" , and iconic social roles.

Regardless of external conditions in the union, the feminine-figure may retain respect for the partner's ancestry and belief in the importance of continuing the lineage.

QUOTATION from B.V. Raman. (1947). Three Hundred Important Combinations.

[begin quote]

Definition. A strong benefic should be in Lagna, the 3rd or 5th, simultaneously aspecting the 9th.

Results. The subject will be extremely fortunate, pleasure-loving and richr.

Remarks. Two conditions are specified for the occurrence of this yoga, viz.,

  1. a strong benefic must occupy Lagna, the 3rd or 5th.
  2. It must at the same time aspect the 9th.

Obviously, Jupiter alone can cause yoga when in Lagna, or in the 5th house for no other benefic can be in Lagna and aspect the 9th.

Any benefic planet can cause the yoga from the 3rd house

Here also due consideration must be given to the nature of the ownership of the benefic concerned ore actually evaluating the yoga.

Cancer Lagna with Jupiter there constitutes a powerful Bhagya Yoga as Jupiter, as ruler of the 9th, aspects the 9th and occupies Lagna in exaltation.

The same yoga forming from Mithuna becomes almost ineffective because of Kendradhipatya dosha for Jupiter.

Consideration of the temporal nature of a benefic is not suggested in the original but it is clear that the potency of the yoga should be based upon the sum-total of the strength of the benefic concerned, for the yoga rests on the presence of a strong benefic in Lagna, the 3rd or 5th." [end QUOTE]
