  • recorder of languages and historical tales

  • Curator and spokesperson of lineage knowledge

creative, center-stage performance style in roles =

  • historic knowledge

  • eyes, face, hair, teeth, mouth, tongue, lips

The classroom universe seems to revolve around the dramatic self-center of

  • face and voice-based behaviors

  • telling stories

  • matters of acquired accumulated value

  • stored banked treasuries

  • the father's lineage

  • knowledge of history and languages

  • valued collections, acquisitions, and hoards

  • food and drink, speech and song, hair and eyes

Pitri-karaka in bhava-2 * Father-figure

Surya in bhava-2 contributes to the perception that the culture of one's family lineage is theatrical, political, creative, self-righteous, egocentric, and charmingly bright. The family lineage may contain performing artists, gamers and gamblers, politicians charismatic figures, or patriarchs. Pitrikaraka Surya suggests that the father-figure typically has a dominant role in defining the family lineage.

Pitri-karaka Surya in bhava-2 may indicate a self-radiant, strong-willed or outspoken father who may confidently assert his own values and opinions (2) without undue concern for the values and opinions of others.

Often the father is engaged in acquisition of wealth-treasuries, food storage, banking, database or library, warehousing, collections, museums, and other expressions of the human urge to "keep" lineage values-fulfillment .

If Surya is weakened (in Thula, Makara, or Kumbha) then the father's self-confidence may be hollowed. One may suffer bullying behavior, selfishness (rather than self-confidence) or other self-proving over-compensations from the father-figure.

  • POTUS-16 Emancipation 1809-1865 Abraham Lincoln * randhresha-8 Surya-Kumbha-2 * had a strong-willed but often misguided hard-scrabble pioneer father. Pitrikaraka Surya = the constantly-changing, unreliable randhra-pati. Lincoln's father was a land-speculator who gained and lost the family treasuries (2) repeatedly, due to questionably aquired and often suddenly (8) invalidated (2) deeds of title (Surya entitlement). According to Lincoln, his father was prone toward harsh punishments (Surya-yuti-Budha-rogesha). Despite the tempering influence of his two gentle wives, the father continued to verbally (2) abuse those in his environment, whether business adversaries or his own children. Lincoln said that had it not been for the frequent interventions of his step-mother, young Abe might have left the family forever and severed communication with his bullying father.

Self-referential Surya pitrikaraka suggests that Dad may be known to his society as a banker, historian, a collector of things or ideas, a librarian, a keeper such as gamekeeper beekeeper housekeeper or peacekeeper, overseer of valuables, caretaker of silos, stores and stocks, warehouseman, specialist in containers and containment, manager of reservoirs or storage tanks, or other "saver" who conserves, reserves, or preserves. Whether his reputation is positive or negative depends upon the 2nd lord * dhanapathi-values-treasuries, and its angle to Surya-2.

The father tends to accumulate affluence in some material form which can vary as herds, hoards, heaps, and hearings (songs). Also the father may possess and be socially recognized as the representative of a treasury of language, knowledge of history and languages, animal husbandry, ornaments, musical skill etc.

  • The father of POTUS-pair-01 tobacco 1731-1802 Martha Custis Washington + Budha-yuti-Mangala + Surya-yuti-Ketu was a wealthy land-holder of several slave-labor plantations which grew primarily tobacco for the British markets. She inherited this largesse via the patriarchal system, via her father and via her deceased first husband.

Self-referential Surya -2 imposes His personality very strongly upon his immediate family-of-origin environment.

In a masculine nativity, Professor Surya-2 represents the self-focused adult male functioning as a self-focused father-figure who claims the center-stage role within his own family * Kutumbha, 2

Self-referential intensity of righteousness and creative intelligence enters the domain of values lineage, art and music, accumulated wealth, face, hair, eyes, and voice. Supportive placement for a dentist, voice expert, or eye surgeon.

In bhava-2, brilliant heat of Professor Surya somewhat disconnects one from history and values-traditions, positioning one as an independent evaluator of affluence and beauty.

If Zukra is favorable, an aesthetic philosopher, with strong but distinctive artistic taste.


The face is bright, strong and full of character, but the facial features and hair, particularly the mouth, are subject to the effects of excessive heat (e.g., sunburns, rosacea).

One models oneself upon the self-promoting aspect of the father-figure in one's own family. One will assert a unique and independent style in family life.

A cultural philosopher who radiates confidence: I am the Center of Knowledge (2).

Identified personally with material luxury, financial wealth and face-based beauty, but has a unique, often unconventional style of expressing these gifts.

Historic Elite

In weaker rashi placements (Thula, Makara, Kumbha) Professor Surya may identify with either the historic and conservative elite, or perhaps become a representative of working class beliefs and values.

In strongest rashi (Mesha-uttama; and Simha) identifies with personal drama and contemporary elite values; one becomes an exponent of privilege and rank - typically via the bloodline of the Father (Surya ).

One seeks praise and recognition for the luxurious qualities of one's wealth, one's face and voice, and one's acquired values, including historical knowledge and hoarded collections of wealth.

Surya-2 = Family

Vision of truth

Kutumbha * Family above all.

The father tends to be the central figure in the family constellation.

Self-referential Surya-2 asserts that divine intelligence should motivate collections of treasury, knowledge of history, lifestyle values, arts, music, and the cultural legacies of one's people.

Intensity of charismatic charm enters the speech values. Brilliant recitation.

Influence of one's family of origin and their values in powerfully transmitted through speech acts.

One experiences speech-and-song performance as highly individualized.

Sings traditional songs, or tells the historic tale of one's lineage.

May be a bright and inspirational historian of values, or teaching philosopher of art, music, finance, or any of the collecting skills.

Prone to detailed record-keeping especially if Professor Budha joins Professor Suraja.

Second marriage

Surya-2 plays a center-stage role in the lives of the family of the second alliance. If Surya is very strong, one's brilliant-center role in the 2nd marriage may feel nearly like royalty.

Most commonly with Professor Surya the enemy of Professor Zukra located in bhava-2, there is not a second lifepartnership.


For Kumbha nativities, Surya-2 may indicate a second marriage with a brightly self-radiant personality which may be the fulfillment of incomplete expectations developed by not satisfied during the first marriage.

In a wife's nativity, if Chandra occupies bhava-1 and there are graha conjoined with Brihaspati, then Surya-2 represents the second husband. In a husband's nativity, if Chandra occupies bhava-1 and there are graha conjoined with Zukra, then Surya-2 represents the second wife.

If a second life-partner emerges, that person is remarkably strong-willed and radiantly confident in matters of language, wealth, and family life. (Presuming of course that Surya is well disposed. If ill-disposed, confidence turns to arrogance.)

A second marriage may also lack legal status if Professor Surya, the enemy of legislator-regulator Professor Shani, is very strong. One may assert that good will (Surya) between the partners is a sufficient basis for union and one may on the basis of that assertion eschew approval from the State (Shani).
