natural regulator Surya feels Friendly toward Kuja

Graha Drishti

the glance of Mangala-5 injects: bhava-8, bhava-11, bhava-12

Actions (yang Mangala) originate in the romantic, creative and procreative genius speculative instincts (5)

Targeted, outgoing vigor of Mangala-5 penetrates

svabhava of Surya seeks bright lights, big city, glitter, glamour, entertainment, celebrity, and fame. Being a good friend of brilliantly radiant Lord Ravi, the ever-moving Professor Mangala is generally OK with all this excitement.

Dynamic drive toward political celebrity

splendid placement for a stage performer. Has dynamic energy for long and demanding artistic performances.

Competitive Kuja is ready and fueled to make more action, more movement, more competition in the worlds of politics, theatre, literary creativity, fashion, ornamentation, and all acts of Divine Intelligence that make the audience smile. Just show Kuja the theatre of operations, and watch the drama get hot.

Excellent for high-energy politics, passionate romance, and competitive fashion; muscular vitality in theatrical displays and childbirth pushing.

The one downside to the Mangala placement in 5 however is living children, who are included in putra-putriki bhava due to their immense creativity but who are rather fragile beings emotionally. Resist any urge to apply fierce actions toward children, and this placement can be enjoyable throughout life.

Supportive placement for a competitive individual athlete, classroom teacher, salesperson, actor, lecturer, public speaker -- any job that involves delivering a dynamic, energetic individual performance.

For Mesha or Vṛścika indriya-lagna , Kuja in bhava-5 can give a dynamic career in politics, financial speculation, literary or performance arts. However, without other support for noble character, potentially Mangala-5 can hyper-activate the downside of speculative competition such as gambling.

  • POTUS-44 Audacity of Hope 1961- Barack H. Obama used his [Kuja-yuti-Rahu] [5] for doing battle with racial bigotry in the American political theatre [5]

Mangala in bhava-5 energizes one's own relationship to winning of games and contests, one's expression of genius via acts of individual intelligence, participation in games and gambling, Romance, and dynamism of creative performance.

Kuja-yuti-Rahu = tendency toward compulsive gambling, mainly during Vimshottari periods of Rahu.

Karaka for dematerialization by heart failure, or in the presence of one's children.

Mangala drishti to 8, 11, and 12 = energizes the pursuit of

  • income from the marketplace activities (11)

  • dream-knowledge and the psychic imagination (12)

  • confidential information and mystical secrets (8)

Intellectual capabilities in matters of "discovery" such as legal discovery of facts, but also more physical expressions such as discovery of mineral resources or discovery of evidence at a crime scene. With some Kanya graha, makes an excellent investigative inspector of manufacturing or health facilities.

Positive placement for gymnastic performance in theatre, for aggressive political campaigns, when in fiery rashi.


Mangala-5 is often associated with frequent occurrence of miscarriage or therapeutic abortion. When not counterbalanced by a drishti from Brihaspati or drishti incoming from the putra-pati, biological children may be optional in the life-plan.

Generally some, but not all, of the children are affected by the pattern of sudden, unexpected changes of identity in regard to the offspring. Much depends on the specific graha involved. Importantly, for creative or celebrity figures, this yoga suggests the need to keep an important secret, and the children are often responsible for maintaining secrecy on some important topic.

The dynamic, innovative and proactively intelligent energy of Mangala-5 may prefer to seek literary, artistic, or intellectually creative channels. Depending on drishti, children of the intellect may be preferred rather than children of the flesh.

Often a gifted writer.

  • Second Sex 1908-1986 Simone de Beauvoir + Chandra. Despite a fertile drishti from Guru, her paradigm-changing work in social philosophy consumed the reproductive energies. Children of the intellect rather than children of the flesh are produced.

  • Ms. Magazine 1934- women's rights Gloria Steinem + Surya. Also a Guru drishti to putriki-bhava suggesting abundance; However, Moudhya Mangala is extremely hot and dry while Guru's energies are invested in social community. Children of the intellect rather than children of the flesh are produced.

Nevertheless, if children are desired, when putra-putriki-bhava receives

a beneficial incoming drishti of putra-karaka Guru OR beneficial incoming drishti of the putra-pati ruler of 5 OR beneficial incoming drishti of parental sheltering nourishing Chandra *** then children may materialize often during bhukti of Guru

  • Out on a Limb 1934- drama-esoterica Shirley MacLaine had one daughter during a Guru bhukti. Due to the demands of SM's creative drama career, the child was raised in Japan while SM worked in various theatrical locations in the USA. Mother and child had brief contact annually, on summer holiday.

these child-positive factors can override Mangala's hot, fast-moving effects and a healthy child may be born.

The eldest child likely has characteristics of military, athletic, hunting, pursuing, or dancing competitiveness.

Suggests that the first child may be male, or a female with splendid capacity for dynamic movement in dance or sports.

  • UK-Prince 1948- Charles of Wales has two sons who are both active in military and sporting ventures.

Agents of approval, admiration, applause = siblings and competitors.

Inventing games and winning competitions = the primary means of gaining ego-validation, attention and approval.

May be dynamically energized and pro-active [Kuja] in political campaigns (5). Politics is a favorite sport.

Abundant creative (5) energy [Kuja] in literature, especially of a political nature =

  • Faust 1749-1832 polymath Johann Wolfgang von Goethe [Mangala-yuti-Rahu] among his other genre, JWG wrote political philosophies of governance

  • Das Kapital 1818-1883 economics Karl Marx famed author of the influential social-economic theories of capitalism and its eschatological correctives

  • POTUS-pair-04 hostess 1768-1849 Dolley Madison in a project which required many years of principled organizing and extensive annotation, widowed DM edited the massive library of personal-professional writings of her spouse, POTUS-04 USA-Constitution 1751-1836 James Madison

  • Second Sex 1908-1986 Simone de Beauvoir [Somana-yuti-Kuja] celebrated, sometimes controversial, lifetime of social-philosophical inquiry into the structure of gender inequity

  • Ms. Magazine 1934- women's rights Gloria Steinem [Surya-yuti-Kuja] lifetime social-critique writing about women's rights, civil rights, and human rights - combined with political activism

Abundant creative physical-sexual energy [Kuja] in literary, musical, and dramatic performance

Excellent placement for a vigorously touring musician or one who needs bursts of forward-moving vitality in order to produce brilliant theatrical performances.

Often dramatists who pursue political activism.

  • "The Shining" dramatist Jack Nicholson

  • drama-activist Paul Newman

  • "The Doors " balladeer guitarist Jim Morrison

  • astrologer, musician Michael Erlewine

Adolescence (5)

Mangala-5 may be particularly combative and self-defensive in adolescence

  • Although Angarika is comfortable in a svabhava of Surya, if the rashi of 5 is hostile to Mangala, one may be passive-aggressive or possibly even self-destructive during adolescence

sports and military exercise may help to express the aggressive tendencies along positive lines; However, the rashi environment of Mangala must support direct physical action

Mangala in a rashi of Shani, Shukra, Budha, and Chandra must express indirectly

  • Mangala in rashi of Budha can be particularly snide and critical as an unhappy adolescent

Focus of Vital Physical Activity

  • stage performance

  • creative literature

  • political endeavors esp. public speaking

  • gambling, games, and leisurely entertainments

  • managing children

  • dynamic and competitive expressions of intelligence, quiz shows,

  • courtly, romantic, and royal pursuits

Learning Style and intellectual or dramatic competitions (5)

distinctively competitive, particularly in scholarly or dramatic (5) contests where 'genius' is the winning component

teachers who have a Kuja-5 student, know that they pursue recognition for their unique, sparkling and incisive personal intelligence.

  • Unless bhava-3 is strong, this student is not normally motivated by team success although they are good at leading a winning team. Kuja-5 competes in scholastic (5) games for individual dominance

  • generally cannot abide 'average' position in any subject. They score at top or at bottom of any assessment but rarely in the un-distinctive middle zone.

if Mangala is well-disposed, the native wins [Kuja] at most games (5).

the native pursues dynamically energized [Kuja] creative empowerments (5)

if Mangala is strong by rashi, there is a good deal of vital energy [Kuja] available to develop speculative ventures (5)

If Mangala is strong, the native can express tremendous vitality [Kuja] in pursuit [Kuja] of applause (5) for personal genius (5)

Makes one's mark (5) in the center of one's own world (5) via some type of competitive [Mangala] expression of divine intelligence (5)

conception and childbirth

Mangala in bhava-5 tends to limit the number of children. Much depends upon incoming drishti. If drishti from Guru enters bhava-5, or 5th-from-Chandra, children are likely albeit the process of conception and delivery may be fraught due to excess pitta. Other helpful drishti also can aid the production of offspring. Vimshottari Dasha periods of Guru are often the timing agent for childbirth.

Childrenm especially the eldest child, may be creative, dynamic, pioneering, athletic, competitive, and innovative.

  • If Guru occupies domain 1, 9 or 11, casting drishti into 5 = one live child is assured.

  • Guru drishti to bhava-5 will almost always bring children, via birth or adoption, albeit with complications and delays should there be a difficult graha in the house.

  • Drishti of the vidya-pati-5 or dharmesha-9 upon putra bhava is helpful for fertility

  • Overall conditions in putra-sthana and dharma-sthana must be assessed.

In certain rashi, Mangala-5 prognosis = challenges in matters of conception and childbirth. However, in Mesha, Simha, Tula, Dhanus, or Kumbha, Professor Mangala generally succeeds in producing the scion, perhaps after a few miscarriages or other disappointments.

  • POTUS-44 Audacity of Hope 1961- Barack H. Obama [Kuja-yuti-Rahu] and his wife Michelle Robinson Obama shared in their biographies that their early attempts to start a family were disappointing and upsetting. The loving couple truly wanted children [Rahu-5 usually has a great passion for genius and children] Yet after much sincere effort, pregnancy seemed to evade them. Several years after their wedding, IVF technology ultimately aided the birth of their two daughters.

In the less auspicious rashi, it is normal to expect one or more miscarriages. Extreme cases involving multiple miscarriages or repeated stillbirths might be forecast only if there are multiple malefic influences upon both bhava-5 from lagna and the 5th from Chandra.

Rahu = exacerbated existing difficulties.

Guru in 9, 11, or 1 is enabled to eventually produce children, albeit after much stress of impatience and too-much-movement from Mangala.

Miscarriage or childlessness,

  • Fewer problems and usually a live birth after some cleansing of hostile energies, when Mangala-5 occupies favorable Rashi

If Guru casts drishti into 5 and Mangala occupies Mesha, Simha, Dhanus, Tula, or Kumbha, children are delivered


  • Kuja-residing-in-5 is a notorious significator of miscarriage. However, if Professor Guru casts drishti upon bhava-5, the native will eventually acquire children.

  • Kuja-5 limits the number of children but generally does not prevent all births. Will prevent some of the births However, Typically via miscarriage or stillbirth.

  • Potentially some conflict with children but the conflict from a pugnacious child can be eliminated if that child is directed into school sports. Live children may mature into Mangala-driven careers such as military, investigative-police, metal-smith, weaponry, hunting, and athletic professionals.

OK for conception in Mesha, Simha, Dhanus, Tula, or Kumbha albeit one of more early miscarriages should be expected to prepare for the live birth of this remarkable all-conquering child!

  • if favorable drishti to Kuja = production of athletic, outgoing, competitive, strong, independent children

From bhava-5, Mangala casts Graha- Drishti

Strength of Mangala Drishti

100%= 4th drishti to randhra bhava = productive toward the svabhava of Mangala.

  • Presuming that Kuja enjoys a hospitable Rashi, and barring potential blockage from papagraha in 8 , Kuja drishti to randhrasthana-8 tends to energize pursuit of hidden treasuries and mobilize the joint assets of marriage.

  • The spouse contributes to marriage wealth. Increased drive toward tantric knowledge and dynamic response to catastrophic change. Contributes to sudden and catastrophic emergencies during periods of Kuja.

25% = 7th aspect to labha bhava

  • cautiously productive in the svabhava of Shani , so long as one keeps earnings within the rule of marketplace law.
  • Energizes income from self-initiated business dealings. Natural tension between conventional earning styles vs. Mars' aggressive market behaviors.

  • Earnings through friendly association (including marriage) may prosper. Supports dynamic activity within community development networking (11). Vigorous activities and competitions among friends during Kuja bhukti.

25% Kuja dosha toward the fifth marriage (11).

100 % 8th drishti to vyaya bhava-12 = productive in the svabhava of friendly Guru.

  • Stimulates the imagination especially regarding private pleasures. Mangala-5 may have a theatrical (5) streak which seeks expression in the boudoir; or, if literary-minded, a highly energized romantic (5) imagination (12) that could be productively engaged in the performance arts.

  • Most of the predictive warnings from the older commentaries are focused upon the marital conflict produced by Kuja's energizing drishti into bhava-12 which is 6th-from-7th.
