QUOTATION Behari = Surya-7

" The urge to overcome an enemy, begin a new way of life , and start a fresh course of action will motivate you.

Marriage or sexual partnership centers less on the sharing of emotions and intellectual aspirations than on the release of physical tension."

"Then you compared a woman's love to Hell,

To barren land where water will not dwell,

And you compared it to a quenchless fire,

The more it burns the more is its desire

To burn up everything that burnt can be.

You say that just as worms destroy a tree

A wife destroys her husband and contrives,

As husbands know, the ruin of their lives. "

Entitled Centrality

Surya-7 within relationships

[Surya in bhava-7] indicates a strong-willed, independently choice-making, often self-referential partner.

The lifemate may be a show-off or a bit of a bully. Often displays a narcissistic style of self-showing. Looking for praise.

Within the union, the partner may make decisions only from a self-interest perspective, without concern for the interests of the partner.

Whether the partner is masculine-identified or feminine-identified, the partner's conduct may brightly resemble one's own father's self-radiant behavioral patterns.

Partnership value may fade in the blinding light of a glorious self-centrality.

All Others may be expected to orbit around Spectacular Surya.

Surya-7 in Mesha-or-Vṛścika may see relationships as primarily serving the entitlement to forceful transformation, competition, and dominance.

  • POTUS-18 Civil War 1822-1885 Ulysses S. Grant + Surya-Mesha + [nīcha] Shani-yuti-Guru . USG married the intrepid daughter of a military officer, Julia Dent. Miss Julia unswervingly supported USG's bloody, brutal Civil War fight (Mesha) to forcefully dominate the enemy. Due to a powerful [uchcha-Surya-7] parivartamsha Kuja-11, once the carnage lay behind them, USS-Grant expressed his deep appreciation (7) for Julia.

Surya-7 in Urisha-or-Tula may see relationships as primarily serving the entitlement to wealth-acquisition or sensual pleasure.

Surya-7 in Mithuna-or-Kanya may see relationships as primarily serving the entitlement to detail management, commercial use of personal imagery, or service ministry.

  • UK Duke 1982- William [camouflaging-secretive Mriga-4] + [Chandra-yuti-Rahu] PW married a mate who is well suited to being scheduled, photographed daily, and exemplifying service ministry. A constellation of partners, advisors, and advocates may be seen to Orbit around regal Surya-Mriga = advertising, photography, announcements, product branding.

  • Contempt 1934- animal-activist Brigitte Bardot [champion-challenger Hasta-1] relationships framed by publicity, photo-ops, information. Married a series of cinema producers, handlers, managers.

Surya-7 in Karkata may see relationships as primarily serving the entitlement to parental caretaking or personal protection.

  • Secret Doctrine 1831-1891 Theosophy Helena Hahn Blavatsky [clairsentient-dreamlike Aśleṣā-4] [Atmakaraka] At age 17, HPB married a peer of her father's. Although she ran away, the elder paternalistic spouse supported her financially. A second marriage protected her national residency.

Surya-7 in Simha may see relationships as primarily serving the entitlement to glorifying the radiant individuality.

Surya-7 in Meena-or-Dhanus may see relationships as primarily serving the entitlement to ideological or doctrinal credenda.

  • Dittoheads 1951-2021 radio polemic Rush Limbaugh [ideological-dogmatic Uttarāṣāḍha-1] [Surya-yuti-Budha] A noted ideologue, RL married four times in quest of the matched believer.

Surya-7 in Markara-or-Kumbha may see relationships as primarily serving the entitlement to socially approved material achievement. Often both parties suffer from perfectionism.

universe seems to revolve around the male partner(s) who occupies the dramatic center of

alliances, partnerships, contracts, agreements, negotiations, balance,

marriage, mating, pairing, sexual relationships

  • PlayBoy 1926- publisher Hugh Hefner

diplomacy, terms of mutual benefit, consulting, advising,

peer relationships, match-making, deals, bargains,

resolution in the law courts, settlements,

betrothal, troth, trusts

The combination of Surya-Urisha + Surya in bhava-7 can only occur for the Vṛścika native. Surya in this yoga is exceptionally strong, because Surya is ruler of 10 located in 10th-from-10th.

Husbandly-figures have primary relationship with other males such as business partner, boss, senior officer.

If there is a wifely marital partner, she has radiant creative confidence and an intelligent, dominating personality. Yet, Surya must be strong by rashi to produce truly effective, non-compromised, non-manipulative, directly ego-recognizing social roles for her. When Ravi is well placed, she can be a successful dramatist, negotiator or attorney.

Surya-7 indicates a creative but self-centered first spouse; often the partner operates in Surya-oriented fields like entertainment, creative arts, royal ceremony, speculative finance, gambling, and politics.

Typically, the native with Surya-7 obtains an attention-seeking spouse.

  • UK Duke 1982- William [secretive-emerging Mriga-4] + [Chandra-yuti-Rahu]. WC married a photogenic, fashionable spouse whose personality is considered charming. Shani's 10th drishti into WC yuvati-bhava increases the level of social duty and responsibility, involving both partners in the marriage.

Whether more specialized toward alliances-making, negotiations, or deals depends upon rashi, drishti, and co-tenants of classroom-7.

Unless mitigated by other more soothing graha, blazing hot attention-seeking Surya has a tendency to burn up the balanced arrangements of marriage. One-center-point Surya is a fierce enemy of Shukra the marriage-karaka and swapathi of yuvati bhava . Therefore, Surya-7 (anti-Shukra in 7) may indicate a dissatisfaction with the constant equalizing adjustments and accommodations of partnership.

Rather, Surya continuously pursues the center-role in the partnership, and if admiration and central-visibility attention is not forthcoming from the spouse (who typically has their own need for creative centrality) then a remarriage is indicated.

Remarriage is possible if the cultural position of the native permits it and the arrangement of the graha requires it; otherwise driven to /relief/ dalliances.

Often the graha do not require remarriage but rather create complexities in the agency of settling the terms of agreement, advocacy, counsel and advising.

Successful placement for negotiators making political alliances and contracts

  • USA Sen-AZ John McCain

first spouse has a radiant and central, attention-getting ego-personality - natural fit for politics and drama

Independent-minded and somewhat ego-driven spouse who is an asset in public life, but not so easy in private life. Enhances negotiation skills in marriage, but not empathy. Less auspicious, generally, for partnerships. Limited ability to compromise.

Better results if Surya is strong by rashi. Nichha graha in bhava-7 attracts a weak spouse and indecisive business partners, leading to repeat marriages and much frustration.

karma-sthāna being 10th-from-10th is also a career indicator. A strong Ravi in yuvati bhava can make a decisive, rational business person who can accept a large measure of personal responsibility.

Surya-7 may be significantly challenged by taking on partners, whether personal or professional. Sole proprietorship is well attuned. If working in a bigger organization, some power to make independent decisions such as in management roles, is essential.

Strong Surya in yuvati bhava may indicate one who is a magnificent deal-maker, product designer, or social architect.

Particularly in politics [Surya] there is some tension between promoting political equity )7) versus doing and saying what is true for oneselfr.


Marriage Surya-7

One is attracted to partners who have a confident, self-centric, bright personality.

The preferred partners express unique intelligence that is diplomatic, harmonious, balancing, charming, relational, attentive, and sweet.

The mate expresses certainty and authority. To the native with Surya-7, the partner's trait of smiling confidence is compellingly attractive. The mate proposes an alliance quickly and confidently. In the case of a female mate, her father may orchestrate the alliance and deliver the proposal. In the case of a male mate, he may assertively and smilingly deliver the proposal. For either gender, the partner has definite fatherly qualities.

  • Secret Doctrine 1831-1891 Helena Hahn Blavatsky married a military officer of high rank, . He was a peer of her officer father, 23 years her senior.

Generally, the mate is distinctively intelligent with political capabilities. Yet, One may be surprised by a gracious and beckoning public persona which masks a narcissistic private reality. Within the marriage, neither Surya-7 nor the spouse can easily accommodate the other's solipsism.

Challenging placement for marriage. Spouse is self-concerned and often lacks empathy. Mate is often highly concerned with personal appearance, prestige dress, and status accouterment. The mate of Surya-7 often seeks royal privilege for the self via fame, power, or dramatic wealth. One' well-being in secondary at best and often ignored entirely. However, additional graha in classroom-7 can soften the self-centeredness or at least diversify its expression.

Surya-7 native as well as the life-partner can be very gifted in arts and is often skilled in architecture, design, diplomacy, hatha yoga, acrobatics, flower arrangement, mediation, and comparable balancing professions. Surya-7 grants charisma in public acts of harmony and balance.

Yet, in private emotional interaction, the partner may suffer a significant inability to manage power-sharing. Surya must be in the center. Equal to equal relationships do not suit the King.

Surya-7 may be feared, admired and respected but not appreciated for their gracious accommodation within relationships.

Personally and professionally, it is "my way or the highway" . Career and home life suffer from solipsism and self-referential behavior in partnership.

For best results with this dicey position, Surya-7 should be surrounded with apprentices, admirers, and dependents -- but not equals. It is However, beneficial for public career to have the radiantly creative super-star Ravi in yuvati 10th-from-10th. Surya flourishes professionally in both bhava-10 and bhava-7 so long as Surya-7 can have things one's own way.


Cal Poly Sunset 2010

Surya-7 Poses a growth-challenge to the expectation of a cooperative alliance.

May be negotiable for two equally strong-willed professional bargainers.

The life-mate needs to be in the spotlight, getting attention consistently.

  • If the life-mate may bea theatrical professional or a politician or negotiating attorney always in the middle of deal-making, then the tension is much reduced. At the end of the day, the spouse can return home from public life having received plenty of praise and applause during their business day. Surya-7 = less obliged to serve as an admiring audience for the brilliant stage-performance of the spouse.

  • When Budha also occupies kalatra bhava, Surya-7 is oneself a habitual negotiator; thus Surya-Budha in 7 = a prosperous combination for a two-attorney marriage

  • Otherwise, prognosis of Surya in 7 = a 'high maintenance' life-mate who is the apple of his-her parents' eye and accustomed to taking the lion's share [Surya] of the limelight.


[Surya-Meena] ruler-of-12 in 7 = Surya occupies a hospitable rashi of His good friend Guru the Priest, but Suraja is also dissipating and dreamlike ruler-of-12 .

Furthermore both Guru and Suraja dislike Shukra. The spouse may hail from the priestly or wisdom-teaching lineage of a distant land or be associated with fantasies, enclosures, sanctuaries.

The spouse may be exceptionally confident due to a childlike trust in the faith of others (usually, adoring parents, grandparents, and teachers). Spouse sees no need to compromise self-interest in order to incorporate the goals or wishes of Surya-7 . Public presentation of the marriage = optimistic, humanistic, travel-oriented (ruler-of-12 ) and apparently enlightened.

However, the spouse would have to be an utterly fascinating person to keep Surya-7 's unswerving attention for a prolonged time. bhava-12 and Meena indicate 'enemies of the marriage' = 6th-from-7th. The main enemies of the marriage are those who see Surya-7 as a redeemer, a savior, the great hope of the ancestors. Good for priestly religion but not good for marriager.

Validation from a louder, larger audience - not just from the partner

Center-stage solo-performer Surya feels a bit over-sated and distracted in the svabhava of Professor Surya's enemy the harmony-seeking, ever-adjusting Shukra.

One's ego-membrane validation = over-extended, as one's self-concept becomes yoked to outer mirrors of various partnerships, * particularly in the image reflected by the spouse. One expects the partner to reflect ideals of Divine Perfection. Simha and Mesha in particular forecast exceptionally idealistic projection upon the spouse, who may need to be physically ideal as well as socially rather regal in character. (Confirm via 7th navamsha.)

There is much sensual pleasure embedded in the 7th sthāna, and the materialism of Shukra's sense pleasures which makes it hard for the brilliant anti-material divine light of Ravi to shine with full glory.

classroom-7 is a travel bhava (along with houses 3 and 12) so this native is ego-identified with travel for the purpose of advising, consulting, deal-making, and building alliances.

  • One sees oneself in perpetual engagement with mutual interests of oneself in relation to others, and Yet, the interest of the royal Self must reign supreme .

  • When Surya is empowered because He occupies the rashi of a friend (Guru, Mangala) then Ravi in 7 becomes a divorce marker for the first marriage.

  • One feels appropriate in the role of counselor and adviser who may charismatically encourage the confidant to enter a trusting relationship. However once the relationship is established, it cannot be an equal partnership. Surya will determine the course of the relationship, the preferred configuration being that the partner should orbit around Surya-7 's viewpoint.

  • Exceptionally bright and enthusiastic in forming alliances; However, the ego-membrane is too strong to maintain the alliances for very long.

Not generally a supportive position for the first marriage.

  • Both Surya-7 and one's spouse may be strong-willed and self-directed.

  • The spouse will have been in a center-state position during upbringing and is expecting to continue that way.

  • Such a spouse will have been the Apple of the Parents' Eye, a favorite child, teacher's pet, or other attention-receiving central role.

  • One seeks praise and recognition for the marriage partnership. Promotes the spouse with enthusiasm and conviction, yet one may use the partner(s) as an instrumental means of calling attention to oneself.

Solo-performer Surya and partner-seeking Shukra are bitter enemies .

Surya-7 in any rashi = a self-focused life-mate.

Yuvati bhava is an uncomfortable location for Professor Surya because it brings Ravi's hot, self-centered energy into Shukra's cool, mutual-exchange house.

  • Surya-7 must"orbit around" the life-mate's interests, but the spouse cannot consider Surya-7 's interest to be of equal importance.

  • The life-mate = a self-defined celebrity, the center of theatrical performance.

  • Surya-7 = brief, illuminating marriages.

  • One learns a great deal about oneself and about the world during the marriage.

  • life-mate = often a noble person and provides some measure of enlightenment for Surya-7 .

  • Yet, the constant other-focus of the marriage leaves Surya-7 feeling un-pleasured.

  • Surya-7 may represent a life-mate who is a deal-maker, negotiator, broker, middle-man, adviser, counselor, contract-crafter, and a provider of legal resolutions.

  • Surya-7 finds a central position in the drama of bargaining-based behaviors, matters of negotiations, contracts, alliances, balanced design, marriage and partner unions, sexual attraction, equality and equity, harmony and grace.

  • However, both Surya-7 native and their life-mate are generally more interested in public diplomacy than in private accommodation.

  • The position is somewhat easier for a feminine nativity because Surya represents the father; the husband tends to behave in patronizing, authoritative style identical to a father. It might be easier culturally for a female to accommodate selfishness in a male life-mate. A mainstream male personality might be less willingly turn over the central spot of admiration to a female, but perhaps if she is a theatrical or political actor, a male can also accept the partner's solipsism - for awhile.

  • The emotional experience and the social outcome indeed depends significantly upon the placements of 7th-from-Chandra (life-mate 1) and second-from-Chandra (life-mate 2)and 9th-from-Chandra (life-mate 3) and so forth.

" The woman's husband will reject her, if the 7th house from the Ascendant or from the Moon-occupied sign be occupied by the Sun."

Spousal ego-membrane and burning idealism

In yuvati bhava, a svabhava of Shukra, Surya can provide a self-righteous, prideful or self-identified spouse.

The partner may be compelled to dramatize his or her individual uniqueness upon the theatrical stage of the marriage.

During courtship, such a spouse is very charming, fashionable, and engaged with the suitor as a preferred audience.

However, it is likely that as marriage proceeds, and the business of shared labor, shared goals, and shared wealth becomes a day-to-day reality, such a spouse may resent the reduction of incoming attention and applause.

Naturally an exaggerated level of self-focus harms cooperation in a partnership. Shukra's agenda of balancing and accommodating give-and-take in marriage may be entirely // burned up // ; by the centrist, attention-getting behaviors of Suraja the King .

  • Surya in yuvati signifies that Surya-7 is socially identified with counseling, advising, negotiations, contracts, deals, legal profession, and balancing-harmonizing diplomatic relationships. Surya-7 is morally skilled at achieving cooperation and building alliances.

  • Surya provides Objective intelligence about relationships. In context and with good support from yuvati-pati-7 and from Shukra, Suraja in 7 can benefit professional counseling and advising professions such as medicine, law, and diplomacy.

  • However, subjective intelligence = intuitive awareness of one's own behavior in a relationship and attention to the needs and interests of the Other in unions and alliances = significantly compromised by spousal ego.

  • Surya-7 = idealism of the spouse. Burning idealism is often a mask for personal ego-membrane disorder. Idealism in place of day-to-day acceptance and give-and-take negotiations within marriage and partnership is naturally a recipe for .

  • When Surya has strength in an ego-expanding rashi, Ravi-7 becomes a karaka for divorce due to perfectionistic idealism on the part of Surya-7 or the spouse. Most commonly, the agent of criticism and disagreement due to imposing impossible ideals upon a marriage is one's spouse.

However, it should be understood that the spouse is simply articulating and dramatizing one's own inner self-critical perfectionism and constant internal narrative of idealistic perfection that disturbs one's own inner balance.

d ebilitated Suraja in 7 may indicate a passive-aggressive spouse who manipulates the partner in order to gain a central position in the union. Unfortunately, represented by the willpower-challenged [nīcha] Surya, is not capable of maintaining the central position by honest means. The marriage founders.

Dignified Ravi = The spouse needs to be Right. If Surya-7 is of an accommodating nature, and the spouse is a productive earner in dramatic professions within politics and theatre, perhaps such a union is possible to sustain.

Surya = "Looking Good"

Surya-7 in any rashi = inharmonious for marriage.

Nevertheless, a dignified Surya honors the public 'face' of the marriage by allowing the spouse to perform with intelligence in public roles.

It is somewhat easier, in a traditional marriage, for the woman to have Surya in bhava-07. Should Surya have strength, the husband will be self-important, independent and wandering. However, since the male is socially expected to run higher levels of solar energy, the natural balance and social acceptability of such a marriage may be only slightly frustrating for a traditional female.

For a man to have empowered Ravi in bhava-7, may be a quite difficult experience. The self-righteousness of the wife may be extreme. She is independent-minded to a fault, often having been raised to believe that one's own ideals are superior t o others and that one's own experience is more authentic than others.

Examples of strong placement for Surya-7

  • USA Senator John McCain , Simha-Ravi in classroom-7. McCain's first marriage was publicized during his 2008 Republican presidential campaign. It was revealed that his first wife, once a center-stage beauty, needed to independently operate her home and raise three children while McCain was (first) in professional military service and (then) trapped as a prisoner of war. While McCain was imprisoned, his wife's body appearance was damaged in a car wreck. McCain then divorced his crippled wife, no-long-center-stage wife, in order to marry a beautiful, vivacious young heiress. The first wife lived in pain with multiple surgeries and never remarried. She remained in a dignified, regal silence, never speaking ill of her husband's marriage-burning choices.

Examples of Weak placement for Surya-7:

  • Sarah Palin , who served briefly as Governor of Alaska and even more briefly a USA vice presidential candidate (Sept-Nov 2008): very weak Ravi in Makara, with lord of yuvati Shani in occupation of bhava-8. dhanapati-2 Surya + lagnesha-1 Chandra + vikrama-pati+ruler-of-12 Budha in yuvati bhava. Surya-7 seeks central roles and attention via the contractual relationships. Male life-mate suffers from social conformism resulting in low individual willpower (Makara - Draco Surya). ruler-of-12 Suraja in yuvati signifies potential for extramarital affairs with enemies of the life-mate (12 = 6th from 7th) in hotels and distant lands (12). Budha Kumari = the extramarital partners typically = quite young.

  • Songwriter-musician Kurt Cobain = Surya weak in Kumbha-7 + Budha. The life-mate did successfully reach her goal of becoming a central-visibility public figure, but unfortunately the life-mate is most famous for her sexual profligacy, drug addictions and partying. (See other disabilities of this particular Surya.)

Surya in Bhava 7 * Pride Glory Righteousness

In the bhava of partnership, a svabhava of harmony-seeking Shukra, Ravi's self-focus is an obstacle to making agreements.

However, the pride-and-glory problem is usually not Surya-7. The homework-problem is typically embedded in a narcissistic or overly self-concerned albeit intelligent spouse.

Despite Surya-7 having positive intentions and wanting only the best ideal happiness, for the partnership, Surya's pride and solipsism can be challenging for marriage which requires tolerance of imperfection and mutuality of interests.

It is beneficial for Surya to have lower power if He is here in bhava-7. Surya's proud brilliance is reduced in rashi of Shani and rashi of Shukra.

If Surya is strong one may find an executive career in creative expressions of negotiation, bargaining, mediation, or deal-making, either in commercial business or the professional expressions of Law. The father (Ravi) is often an attorney or professional negotiator.

QUOTATION Das / Behari commentary WRT Surya-7

" Generally speaking, the Sun in the 7th house shapes your attraction to the opposite sex, but causes suffering thereby.

You experience difficulties in establishing a harmonious married life, and often marries more than once.

  • Travels abroad in the 25th year , takes inedible food and suffers; jolly; foolish and destructive. Fond of traveling, and of lovers from widely different social backgrounds.

Your spouse is not devoted to you, fickle minded, and fidelity is doubtful.

  • Diseased, mentally tense; little profit in business and rivalry with the people; insomnia. You are sickly and your spouse suffers; the wicked worry you; whatever effort you may make in business, you fail to earn enough.

  • Your spouse is every thing for you, and you lose your individuality.

  • You are afraid of the government, suffer sickness and have many enemies.

  • You are short-tempered and wicked.

  • Always quarrels with the spouse making the family unhappy.

The Sun in the 7th house delays marriage;

  • there is no happiness and pleasure in married life because of discord between husband and wife.

  • If well-aspected, the partner will feel independent, be of sound moral integrity, seeking harmony and happiness in the married life.

The afflicted Sun will bring trouble through pride, subject to the nature of the aspect.

  • This house stands for love and marriage, husband or wife, public enemies, law suits, partnership in trade, travel, happiness, children from a second marriage, son-in-law, relatives, ways and means and merchandise.

  • You may be poor, insulted, will suffer bodily disease, government displeasure and imprisonment, will take to bad ways and will not be well-disposed to spouse.

Note: Almost every authority declares that the Sun in the 7th is not congenial for a smooth married life.

One will incur grief on account of spouse, will incur physical distress and mental worries.

  • Due to fear of others, you cannot even sleep peacefully.

  • You will gain in a limited way in your undertakings.

  • You will consider the opposite sex to be everything in this world and will remain sexually tormented.

You will have limited progenic happiness, indulge in sinful acts, be sick, will have a damaged body due to excessive sexual enjoyment and will eat anything available.

You will not derive much physical pleasures from your spouse and will enter into quarrels within a single moment without cause."
