Belief in Human Development via Fairly Negotiated Agreements

  • bargaining, pairing, match-making, weighing, balancing rashi of Tula = a somewhat hostile environment for priestly Brihaspati

  • Guru sees Tula-pati Shukra as satrugraha = enemy.

  • Professor Shukra sees tenant Guru as samagraha = neutral companion.

  • results depend largely upon Guru's bhava and the character of Shukra

Vimshottari dasha Calendar - Bhukti of Guru

Guru-Tula can be a surprisingly challenging ruler, because during His bhukti He will activate 3-6 from Himself.


Guru in bhava-10 [Tula] occurs only for the Makara udaya-lagna.

From 10, Broadening Guru emphasizes the natural shad-ashtakya relationship between 10 [executive authority] WRT Brihaspati's two svakshetra

  • (6th-from-10) 3 [management, administration, process, communications, details, reporting, software, manufacturing, handcraft]
  • (3rd-from-10) 2 [invisible enclosures, cloistered, clandestine, dreamworld, imagination, foreign-lands]

Bhukti of Guru can signal disagreeable [6] attitudes of [10-figures] such as superiors, commanders, chief executives. The testiness of the bosses is usually due to

  • adversarial conditions [6th-from] affecting the business process [3] and management behaviors [3] which come in conflict [6th-from] with organizational policy [10]
  • foreign activities, research, or other dreamy, incompletely understood 12-environments that cannot be rationalized and must be grasped intuitively

The organizational [10] friction emitting from [Guru in bhava-10-Tula] during His bhukti is rarely serious enough to harm a career.

It is usually more like extended crankiness [6] and blaming that enacts the 3 [transactional narrative] and 6 [victim narrative] definitions within the Learning Pathway.

Often the Guru Bhukti exemplies a temporary case of // responsibility exceeds authority // because one kindly takes responsibility [10] One may then be blamed [6] for this generous offer, if leaders [10] are looking for a scapegoat [6] in times of unfavorable commercial conditions [3] especially when foreign transactions [12] may be a feature of the misalignment [6].

One may comprehend a broad pattern of having made poor decisions [10].

Yet the situation is quite temporary, since Benevolent Guru is too tolerant to fight. Except for the Rahu Mahadasha where Guru rules the chidra-dasha, in all other Mahadasha each Guru bhukti is followed by a Shani bhukti. The potentially conflicted expansion of Optimistic Guru is followed by a corrective -retraction of Realistic Shani.

When the naturally large scope of preacher-teacher Brihaspati's one-to-many broadcast is framed into Professor Shukra's natural role of one-to-one negotiator and adjudicator , the size of the audience for Guru's preaching is much reduced.

Ideally, Guru needs a doctrine, a priesthood, and a pulpit to spread His wisdom. For Guru-Tula, the interpersonal partners become the primary, possibly exclusive, targets of Brihaspati's sermonizing.

Guru may deal with this situation by expressing His wisdom in context of relationships: teaching and preaching about relationships, telling inspirational stories about relationships, or just generally using the context of one-to-one human partnerships as the pulpit or platform for His doctrinal presentation on how spiritual principles work.

Guru-Tula may feel that He is preaching in the wind and not being heard. In Tula, Brihaspati is obliged to constantly balance His expansive tendencies against the limited needs and interests of another person.

Past-life carry-forward wisdom about negotiation and contract development; sense pleasures, arts, music, architectural and social design, balanced actions; wealth development; expansion of domains of grace and beauty.

Tolerant, expansive, inclusive, open-minded arbitrator

  • Raja Yoga 1863-1902 Swami Vivekananda greatly impressed his audience at the 1893 World Congress of Religions with his balanced [Tula] and inclusive [Guru] approach toward religious understanding. He was never confrontational or exclusive in his views, even though denouncing competitor doctrines was the standard in his day

Guru-Tula believes that He is dealing with others in a Fair and Equitable fashion

  • Guru-Tula = Karaka for Multiple Contracts, Deals, and Agreements, but not per se a marker for multiple marriages. Guru-Tula is often a fortunate professional in brokerage and the gracious diplomatic, negotiating arts.

  • (Guru in bhava-7 in any rashi = typically two or more marriages)

Expansion of patterns of social and material resource management. Often brings affluence .

If Mangala is strong, balance-expanding Guru-Tula may be an excellent dancer.

If Shukra is strong, harmony-grower Guru-Tula can be a gifted musician

  • Heartbreak Hotel 1935-1977 Graceland Elvis Presley has Shukra + Rahu-2, making him a gifted singer and speaker. A particular singing specialty of his was the historic (2) folk hymns of his people.

Believes in harmonious relationships, good design, attractive appearances, and in all things Balance.

  • Guru seeks the broadly Dharmic viewpoint of spiritual and religious truths, the development of priesthood, and pursuit of human communion with the Divine.

  • Shukra seeks sensual pleasure, human-to-human relationships, and the development of hoards of treasury .

Naturally, these two planetary agenda are somewhat incompatible, and Guru is Therefore, somewhat handicapped in Thula Rashi.

the native will pursue many pleasures and form many relationships in order to accomplish a complex and ongoing balancing act, trying to develop true wisdom while satisfying human pleasures.

In relationships, the Guru-Tula native may do things that may only make sense to them. One may be ambivalent about the meaning or value of human love relationships, even while pursuing multiple connections.

Justice is flat = balanced = equal. The highest truths exceed the realm of human justice.

therefore, in Shukra-ruled balancing justice-seeking Tula-Vanika, the higher-truth quest of Guraja generally does not reach full extension of dharmic capability to reach up from the human realm into the larger view of the gods (deus, theos, theory).

Guru-Tula is locked into contractual agreements which regulate the patterns of social and material resource management.

Guru is not harmed in Thula. Yet, Brihaspati's inclusive higher philosophical wisdom cannot be expressed in matters of exclusive legal contracts, equity-seeking diplomatic negotiations, and brokered deals.

Guru is not naturally a deal-maker. Rather, He presents the truth As It Is, without "balancing" and adjustment to human sensual tastes [Shukra].
