Ready to Rejuvenate
Actions (yang Mangala) originate in the self-destructive and rebirthing instincts (8)
Targeted, outgoing vigor of Mangala-8 penetrates:
see: Strength of Mangala Drishti from Mangala-bhava-8
splendid placement for healers such as psychiatrists, psychologists, midwives, surgeons, tantriki, occultists,
also superb energy for investigators, those who would penetrate the veil of secrecy which surrounds harmful doings, police detective and crime solvers, forensic scientists
also good for aggressive (Kuja) pursuit of hidden agents, poisons, invisible threats, unseen forces
Bhava-8 = the location of numerous "apertures" or "sphincters" large and small
These openings-and-closings constitute the membranous tunnel-like passageways between the various realms of experience: physical, emotional, mental, spiritual (to name just four well-known worlds; there are more.)
Mangala in 8 hastens the kinetic energy of the system of faucets and drains which comprise the chakra network.
Kuja facilitates vigorous and sometimes frightening movement through these apertures.
Aids longevity. Native enjoys a long and vigorous life with a quick, perhaps bloody, end. Kuja= blood, vigor.
Activities of Kuja's two Bhava = subject to sudden upheaval and forceful expressions of destruction-rebirth change.
The purported identity may be radically, even catastrophically, destroyed during the lifetime. One is reborn vigorously. Aggressive pursuit of hidden, tantric knowledge.
A good thing for Vrizchika and Mithunaya lagna, where Kuja = rogesha-6 , and for Vrishabha and Dhanau lagna, where Kuja = ruler-of-12 .
For Vrishabha lagna, Mithunaya lagna, Vrizchika lagna, Dhanuzya lagna ,
Strongest benefits for Vrizchika lagna and Mithuna lagna where major obstacles from Aristhana, such as enemies, debts, and disease, can be aggressively destroyed because rogesha-6 Mangala-8 receives Viparita Raja Yoga * Harsha Yoga
Mithuna lagna may be enormously successful in secret commercial operations or hidden messaging and dealing with a criminal element such as detective or interrogation work.
"You are courageous despite setbacks in your personal career. Married life may fail, colleagues may let you down and foreigners may create difficulties. But you will transcend all difficulties and earn fame abroad. Your occupation in life will be spectacular. You will suddenly shoot up in glory and light. And may die suddenly as well."

Sibling Group, Cell, Cohort, Teams
Depending on the rashi, secretive Mangala-8 may push through a vigorous action behind a cloak of undisclosed activities
Kuja-8 is either a great healer , or a controlling, oversexed and manipulative individual. Or both. With sufficient tantric advancement, may be able to penetrate the auras of others in order to do"psychic surgery"and other requested interventions.
Increased drive toward tantric knowledge and dynamic, self-initiated response to catastrophic change.
Generally favorable for Mesha lagna and Vrizchika lagna, provided one has access to conscious healing traditions. Driven pursuit of mystery traditions and secret societies.
Success in undercover investigations, insurance adjuster,"first responder", emergency medicine, direct intervention in life-and-death situations, handling volatile and dangerous conflict, all forms of catastrophic change , plus other sudden, forced-upheaval types of enterprise.
Seva of Mangala-8
of fer during any Mangala bhukti
of fer during periods of the randhresha-8
of fer once per month when gochara Chandra journeys via the natal 8th bhava *or* via the trama-prone the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra
| Mangala in bhava-8 in any rashi benefits from intentional and targeted seva offering to those who have experienced sudden and unexpected changes.
Service to those who have been traumatized and are ready for healing.
Ideally the service or charitable donations of financial wealth for the purpose of good works should be masked or disguised; best not to call attention to the donor.
Beneficiaries of seva may include
those whose worlds have been shattered by some species of sudden, penetrating, unexpected force
Mangala-8 is a splendid placement for healers such as psychiatrists, psychologists, midwives, surgeons, tantriki, occultists, police detective and crime solvers, forensic scientists etc. Those with a solid education in these professions may offer their skills in charitable service to those who need healing assistance alleviate many types of personal ignorance and fear.
Remember healers : you are facilitators. Healers do not actually"do"anything. Healers provide the environment that is conducive to healing, provide the uncritical and attentive support, and most of all provide the protective psychic grounding. However, it is essential to remain aware that no one can heal another person. Ultimately each person heals oneself.
The service is to provide the safe and supportive environment in which the beneficiary may regain the strength needed to continue their personal journey at a higher level of wisdom. When a person is jolted by a severe shock one may be temporarily disoriented upon the path. The healer simply stops the motion of the forward movement for a brief moment so that the affected being can regroup.
Karaka for a sudden death; by tantric methods of intentional transformation; by weapon; from hidden diseases; or by mysterious causes including guerilla ambush or secret attack from inside or from outside .
Tends to die young-ish, but not always (check for a life-extending, change-resistant Shani drishti to 8 which indicates a longer life)
from an outside force, via bullet or sword
from an inside force, via heart attack or internecine attack
As a "challenging planet in a challenging house " Kuja -8 does some good things!
In any rashi, Kuja gives a sudden physical departure from this earthly vale. No long painful suffering before death. Poof, you're outta here! Typically an unexpected"accidental" death.
In Karkata, where Kuja is extremely weakened and passive-aggressive, the conditions of death (not the timing of death) will be watery, malingering, usually at home, and in Azlesa particularly the implication is family manipulative scheming and emotional turmoil.
of course this "benefit" of a quick death is the result of intensely malefic effects, so only the consciously skillful tantriki can really enjoy it.
If one is "prepared" for a sudden death, for example by reading in the spiritual literature of death (e.g., Tibetan Book of Living and Dying ) And understanding what to expect, then the quick process of liberation from the physical form can be a spiritual as well as a physical blessing.
|bhava-8 turns the wheel of Birth and Death|| |
Kuja in bhava-8 with strength is a karaka for sudden surgeries and death by weapons .
Kuja/8 indicates a vital subconsciously-held past-life memory carried over from heroic but fatal fighting in battlefields of previous lives. Kuja in bhava-8 does not guarantee death by weapons at any particular time in life.
Kuja merely provides the predisposition toward that eventuality, due to the intensity of the past-life memory.
|~~ Bhrigu Sutram Ch. 24, Shloka 14||"If the 8th Bhava be possessed by a malefic planet, and the 2nd Bhava by a benefic planet, the woman will die before her husband."|
|Strength of Mangala Drishti|| |
100%= 4th aspect to labha bhava = cautiously productive in the natural Bhava of Shani.
100%= 8th drishti to Sahaja-bhava = productive in the natural Bhava of neutral Budha.
Quem di diligunt, adolescens moritur .
(Whom the gods love, dies young.)
"challenging planet in a challenging house gives good results."
Kuja the Hunter flourishes in bhava-8, where His aggressive, competitive instincts battle the forces of annihilation and massive upheaval.
Should Kuja be well disposed via drishti and rashi, the native performs with athletic prowess in emergency environments, or one handles covert operations with aplomb. uttama-Kuja will handle confidential (often illegal) business matters with decisive force.
Splendid position for a surgeon or midwife. the native does not create secrets but rather one plunges into the hidden or taboo environment with skillful physical force.
nichha-Kuja here is disastrous, as the native charges into other people's business with intent to manipulate and disrupt. But most other situations for Kuja are beneficial for handling existing secrecy with vigor and the long-term outcome is typically a success.
Bhratri-karaka in bhava-8 = similar to Zukra in bhava-8
Longevity: Life is shortened
Circumstances of Death:
Inheritance and Insurance settlements:
Access to Secret Knowledge:
Joint Assets of Marriage:
Das / Behari commentary upon Mangala located in bhava-8:
"Externalizes adverse past karma which has a very detrimental influence on the health. Various diseases connected with the urinary tract or with blood circulation may afflict you; you may undergo surgery, and your sensuality is fiery and passionate.
"Trouble for spouse. Degradation.
"Difficult diseases come. Misfortune in business comes.
"If Mars is in the eighth house from the Lagna, Jupiter-Venus (benefics) posited in the house of fate and fortune etc. may even become ineffective, as Mars (malefic) over-rides them."
