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

[energizing-identifying lagnesha for Meena-Antya]

lagnesha + karmesha = career-expander, theorist

opera singer Maria Callas

UK Duke 1982- Harry

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.

  • France-Pres-pair 1967-singer Carla Bruni Sarkozy [Guru-1 parivartamsha lagnesha Surya-5]. Her well-developed identities include but are not limited to fashion model, singer-songwriter, and lifepartner of former France-Pres 1955- Nicolas Sarkozy.

  • USA-Congress 1943- Newt Gingrich + [Shukra-yuti-Rahu] . His well-developed identities include but are not limited to USA Congressmember for 20 years, writer of countless book reviews, a doctoral dissertation, and detailed articles on such diverse topics as dinosaurs and political theory.

  • K-PM Global Alliance 1953- Tony Blair [Krittika-3] [Guru-yuti-Mangala] [Guru-1 parivartamsha Shukra-11] Blair 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). Also TB has served as university instructor [Guru] and patron of religious alliances (Guru doctrine).

  • Easy Rider 1936-2010 artist Dennis Hopper was a notorious Hollywood actor and director, but he was also a fine-arts painter who produced galleries full of artistic work.

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


[nīcha] Guru husband may have a central role for the wifely-figure, but 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, QV lobbied intensely for him to receive official governance appointments that could raise Albert's respect in Parliament. Alas, Guru for QV was a nicha vyaya-pati (distant lands, withdrawal) and ruler of 3 (writing, documents, reports). Though Albert was the center of QV's universe, Brihaspati relegated him to roles of Queen's private secretary (3) and behind-the-scenes policy writer (12).

  • 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. Her public career was far more visible than his.

  • Yentl 1942- drama-song-activist Barbra Streisand [Mriga-2] [Atmakaraka] [Guru-yuti-Shani] Married twice, both alliances with dramatic actor husbands of respected professional accomplishment. However, the prestige and scope of both lifepartners' careers was far smaller than her own extraordinary multi-decade top-performing career.

Generosity of spirit. Particularly helpful for certain lagna:

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

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

Guru-Vrishchika = dhanapati-2 + vidya-pati-5 = expands wealth, 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 [Mūla-1 mūlatrikoṇa] operated an international court of politics and entertainments in her home (Guru-1 rules 4). A literate and calculating woman, she was also deeply patriotic toward her homeland England and seen by her illiterate folk as a sort of good-luck icon [Guru], a generous protectress or even a deity.

[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.

Stout 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 lagna.


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 physical 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 bandhusthana) 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 the native may be nearly incapable of discriminating against those from less fortunate backgrounds. Barring drishti from papagraha, charitable and generous by nature.


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) . Mr. Assange means well, and he is protected by [dik-bala] Guru-in lagna.

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

Female's partner karaka = Guru-1 central identification

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.

  • POTUS-pair-37 Watergate 1912-1993 Pat Ryan Nixon [Guru in bhava-1 identity] . PM was powerfully identified with her husband [Guru] and the two-person-career that the Nixon's team-worked for decades. Their ultimate joint goal had been the POTUS win, and they got their goal after the Nov-1968 election during her Budha-Shani bhukti . Criminally inclined [nīcha] Shani-yuti-Rahu-6 would However, lead to their downfall.

  • France-Pres-pair 1967-singer Carla Bruni Sarkozy [Guru-1 parivartamsha Surya-5]. Although CB has a long history of romantic endeavors as indicated by her Guru parivartamsha Surya-Budha-5, her identity with the French President is visible.

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 female 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.

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 rich.

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]
