Vrsa = vir, wer = the potent one.

  • IE: wiro * English cognates: virile, virtue, werewolf, wergeld, world

Surya-Urisha * bright center of pleasures and treasures

"I am" self-centric identity formed by thoughts-Stream emitting from The Series of Suns

"I am" a conservationist, a sensualist, a container, a pleasure-monger

Vrishabha = Ruled by Surya's enemy Zukra. One's natural genius seeks to be in the center of treasury, fleshly beauty, social harmony, and sensual pleasure.

Sparkling Surya's ego-membrane expression depends on character of aesthetic, pleasure-loving Zukra .

The rashi of Surya's mutual enemy Zukra is an inhospitable place for the moral intelligence of Surya.

Development path of the self-reliant ego-membrane is damaged by the deep attraction * akarshana * to accumulated wealth and the flow of sensual pleasures that is Zukra's agenda in Vrishabha.

  • Visible public behavior psychologically driven by childhood memories of indulgent sensual pleasure and praise for sweetness.

When uncomfortably placed, Surya-Vrizabha may signal a certain amount of financial conceit. One may radiate the "right treasury".

Not a decisive person, although often a sensual one who knows where the money is. Surya is weakened in the rashi of His enemy Zukra.

Even while one may appear self-directed, often under the sway of others. Can get involved in unsavory association through addiction to pleasures. Pleasant, companionable, and comfort-oriented. Usually more focused on wealth, comfort, beauty, sweets, and pleasure than on making ethical choices.

  • Morally flexible seeking central position in environments rich with wealth and pleasure.

  • Not averse to bribery.

  • Frequently born into a financially privileged family or one with strong financial intelligence even if the social rank is modest.

  • Very conscious of financial power (Surya). Alert to quality and quantity of material values, stored assets.

  • Artistic and historic sensibilities, but this type of value-noticing, that occurs when Surya shines bright light upon beautiful and valuable things, will be directed toward personal acquisitive and collecting behaviors. Not art for art's sake, but art also for the sake of its value in the collector's portfolio.

Ego-identified with accumulated wealth and the historical value that accrues to one's position. If educated, will have a special interest in the history of one's people. If Zukra is well-disposed, may enjoy life to the fullest.

  • If Surya-yuti-Ketu, few moral boundaries.

  • If Surya +Shani , greatly constrained by hierarchies of financial well-being and invested power.


Surya-Urisha rashi = father (or father-figure, who may be the grandfather or other dominant male) is focused on the accumulation of treasury and the experience of sensual pleasure.

  • POTUS-41 All the Best 1924-2018 George H.W. Bush * GHWB'ss father Senator Prescott Bush was an investment banker and a political kingmaker

The father-figure

may be involved with art, storage, libraries, or collections

may trade in luxury items or sugar products, including alcohol

and/or deal in sensual experiences =including women,

  • father of Mighty Heart 1975- drama-activist Angelina Jolie was known for his numerous liaisons


When Surya the natural enemy of Zukra resides in bhava-7 = generally unsupportive for lasting marriage; in other bhava, Surya-Urisha = generally not harmful.
