Guru-Kumbha * expansion of systematic, networking, interlinked creativity

Guru-Meena [svakshetra] expansion of visionary, dreamlike, imaginative creativity

Tends to channel the creative genius into works of high civilization rather than fleshly reproduction.


Guru in 3rd-from-3rd expands and develops the creative, unique writing activities. Literary creativity much benefitted depending on how hospitable is the rashi.

If Guru = lagnesha, expanded intelligence marks the personality. May be a polymath philosopher and wonderful teacher-scholar-genius, with the power to theatrically enact the philosophical understanding.

If Guru = svakshetra or uttama with His lord well disposed, a karaka for great wealth through intelligence, speculative winnings or royalties on publication of creative works.

Favors success in politics, speculation, amusements, entertainments, authorship, dramatically personal style of statesmanship (if karmesha-10 is also good).

Guru provides multiple celebrity dramatic performances

  • Material Girl 1958- dance song cinema Madonna yuti Rahu

  • Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt

As 11th-from-7th, gain through spouse and partners. (Classically, gain of children through marriage partner.)

[nīcha] Guru in bhava-5 may indicate overconfidence in political settings.

Brihaspati the Generous Expander can ease life in may ways, according to His angles.

When lagnesha with other assists, Guru can enhance charitability and counterbalance even the most serious troubles.

  • Cleopatra 1932-2011 AIDS activist Elizabeth Taylor [Guru-5 mutual drishti Rahu-1] Despite her extraordinary dramatic talent and facial beauty, ERT endured a severe struggle with chronic pain + substance addictions including alcoholism. (Shukra much amplified by Rahu, and in 6th-from-Chandra).Yet, uttama lagnesha Guru in 12th-from-6th can drain much of the sorrow out of bhava-6. ERT's career survived and thrived, morphing into a luxury-goods business ([uchcha] Shukra-yuti-Rahu-1 also rules 3rd-from-3rd) and extraordinary philanthropy [uchcha] Guru in 10th-from-Chandra.

Preaching on politics


Professor Guru unaccompanied in sthana-5 may under some circumstances reduce the number of fleshly children, albeit Guru-5 is an excellent placement for student-teacher relationships and often brings in an expansive student. Generally, the drishti of Guru upon lagna and upon bhava-9 indicates at least one or two offspring.

An important indicator of prospects for children is 5th-from-Chandra. Also check 5th-from-5th as well as 5th-from-Guru before making predictions.

  • Homeopathy 1755-1843 Dr. Samuel Hahnemann [Purvaphalguni-2] [Surya-12 parivartamsha Guru-5] SH fathered 11 children. Guru-5 activates 5th-from-5th ++ Guru drishti into lagnesha Mangala = fertility

Children may overdevelop the Guru role, so that the child becomes one's teacher rather explicitly. Although there is nothing wrong with a teacher-child, socially [Shani] this relationship may be awkward until its wisdom-conferring role is fully understood [Guru].

In any case one's relationship with children tends to be broad and inclusive rather than narrow and parochial, thus favoring a lifestyle that can encompass many [Guru] students rather than just a few bio-children.

If Guru-5 and there is drishti from Mangala entering putrasthana-5, it is possible to experience an early loss of the first child. If Guru [nīcha], similar weakness in the capacity of putra-putriki-bhava for sustaining an individual child, thus some prognosis for early loss of a first child -- but check ALL other factors before deciding on this point.

Karako bhavo nashto suggests that although these offspring will no doubt be light-bringers, the offspring are attention-magnets with a certain self-righteous or self-entitled quality.

Most commonly Guru-5 with no companion graha-5 indicates political success, charismatic students and artistic creativity for the native, but limited biological children.

Guru-yuti-Rahu = Rahu-5 = complex due to a great desire [Rahu] for children combined with simultaneous expansion [Guru] of the political or dramatic talents.

Risk-loving Rahu-5 creates a suggestion for step-children, adoptive or acquired children. Alternatively, children may be born outside of one's familiar home culture.

  • Material Girl 1958- dance song cinema Madonna yuti Rahu * first child born outside marriage contract; younger children adopted from Africa

Children are born but as they compete for creative resources, others may need to raise the children. The "lion's share" (5) of one' creative resources is often directed into a political career or literary career or performing arts career.

Also if there are other graha in bhava-5 along with Brishaspati, the prediction for children changes according to the influence of those additional graha.

If [nīcha] Guru, suggestion for reproductive disabled or differently-abled children

However Guru-5 blocking-or-reducing progeny is not a strict rule since Guru can receive drishti or have a relationship to Chandra which does produce children, sometimes abundantly. (Always check 5th-from Chandra, 5th-from-Guru, and drishti into bhava-5 to ascertain the final outcome regarding progeny.)

Also if Guru's planetary ruler is strong, offspring are likely.

Children may easily enter the life via other fulfilling channels, including adoption, step-children, and other forms of sponsorship

Shani in bhava-5 signals responsibilities, obligations, delays, and requirements regarding children.

  • Way of Zen 1915-1973 radio philosopher Alan Watts yuti Rahu - produced seven children, yet known as a negligent father

If other graha stimulate the production of children, the circumstances of child-production = "big" [Guru] suggesting a large inclusive family, and public philosophical guidance or religious beliefs affecting the larger sizing.

Internationalized expansion can include all the world's children, and even when Guru-5 blocks personal reproduction the native may feel a religious vocation toward global [Guru] rights and entitlements (5) for the younger generation.

If Guru is strong, may become wealthy through games, theatrical performance, entertainments, authorship, politics, amusements.

Political Elections = speculation bhava-5

Agents of approval, admiration, applause = priests and wisemen.

Wisdom-teaching and performance of ceremonial duties are the primary means of gaining ego-validation, attention and approval.

partner of the wifely-companion dhava- karaka = Guru

Often, the wife-agent meets the husband-agent life partner(s) in a charismatic entertainment setting, such as a theatrical performance, celebrity event, or political party.

The partner's identification with personal performance genius as the channeling of divine intelligence is important to her, and the partner's love of their children may form the basis of the union.

  • First marriage for female characterized by political and theatrical expansion. The marriage might not bring children, but the creative intelligence is stimulated. Literary and performance art are featured.

Regardless of the external conditions of the union, the feminine-figure may retain a respect for the power of intelligent parenting and a belief in its importance in her life.

husband #1 meeting story for Material Girl 1958- dance song cinema Madonna

  • Madonna filming a music video (5) Material Girl 1958- dance song cinema Madonna stood atop a stage-set staircase [Rahu]. she looked down and saw a handsome young actor. By her own statement, at that moment she had a clear prescient fantasy that she and this man would meet, fall in love and get married. Also, the video was being filmed by an older female (Guru's lord = Shukra-Karkata maternal.) Marriage in Chandra-Rahu bhutki.

The 2nd husband-to-be, a film director (5) was first introduced at lunch in a private walled garden [Karkata] by an elder female [Chandra] attended by creative-theatrical people (5) such as actors, directors, costumers, and their financial backers [Shukra]. Second marriage occurred in Rahu-Rahu swabukti: Rahu represents husband-2.
