Luxurious pleasures via Physical Movement + Fleshly Vitality

A benefic is lagna always helps the social identity. the native = physically attractive having well-balanced features.

  • Sensual, artistic nature.

  • gifted in finance, beauty, ornamentation, music, and pleasure

  • attracts attention very easily

Often a dancer, actor, balladeer, fashion model, musician, athlete, politician, or otherwise successful in public life via the sweetly handsome bodily appearance.

One relishes the sensual delights of art, music, fine foods and scents. Access to the treasuries of valuable goods and conserved knowledge.

Zukra in lagna provides pleasure in one's own body, self-delighted by one's own appearance, attracted to oneself, likes one's own social personality identity.

Enjoys the sweetness of easy win in competitions and fights.

Appreciates the occasion of birth.


In a masculine nativity, the wife-figure plays a key role in shaping the identity

  • POTUS-17 Reconstruction 1808-1875 Andrew Johnson * Zukra-Makara-Draco-1 = yogakaraka ruling 5+10. Zukra rules Rahu-10-Thula in 6th-from-Chandra. Johnson was raised in poverty and received no formal education. However, after his marriage at age 18 to Eliza McCardle age 16, she tutored him in accurate reading, writing, and ciphering. He soon entered the world of politics, climbing (Dhaniztha) from local Tennessee official to POTUS-17. Although he suffered from the spotty understanding typical of the self-educated, Johnson nonetheless read some of the Latin classics under Eliza's tutelage, and learned his debate skills from Roman oratory. His career began at onset of Rahu Mahadasha. It revolved around the slavery debate. He became a well known and financially privileged figure. Shani in 7th-from-Chandra shows a solid, stern partner. Despite her outward strictures of illness and sobriety, Eliza truly made the man by teaching, shaping, and supporting him from her age 16. She died five months after Andrew.

Spends money (Zukra) on

  • self, fleshly appearance, personal style

  • Actions and relationships which promote the bodily attractiveness + vitality

  • services of those who invigorate the body such as massage therapists and athletic trainers (particularly but not exclusively women)

  • services of those who beautify the individual's public aura such as personal stylists

Treasury from: music, beauty, fine arts,

Treasury from: charming personality and pleasing shell-appearance

Treasury from: gracious entertaining, personal warmth, vitality, and pleasant style

Zukra-1 is an inveterate deal-maker who naturally seeks mutual interest agreements with all partners.

  • POTUS-17 Reconstruction 1808-1875 Andrew Johnson rose from abject poverty as the child of a widowed washwoman, to Governor of Tennessee and POTUS-17. Johnson was handsome in a chiseled style reflecting Shani drishti upon Zukra-1 + upon Chandr-Rohini-5. Johnson's charisma drew from his rough-hewn beginnings and the campaign images capitalized on his worker-class (6) "log cabin" origins as an aesthetic element. Via leadership Rahu-10 ruled by Zukra-1, his legislative authority (10) was focused primarily on issues of slavery * Zukra rules Rahu-10 in 6th-from-Chandra.

  • Yet Johnson supported the Union and the Constitution. POTUS-16 Emancipation 1809-1865 Abraham Lincoln considered slavery-supporting Johnson to be a safe choice for Tennessee Governor to impose ex-slave voting rights. However, always seeking a compromise, Johnson yielded to the pro-Confederate pressure and prevented slave rights. Ultimately Johnson's agreement-seeking became a mish-mash of conflicting interests, and Rahu-10 caused his downfall.

Relationships are self-defining-ly important to Zukra-1, and their social behavior is often distinguished by an ability to maintain pleasant relationships via re-bargaining the terms of agreement.

  • Despite their widely publicized divorce after his admitted infidelity, POTUS-45 Play to Win 1946- Beauty Pageants Donald Trump successfully maintained an amicable personal and commercial bond with his ex-wife Best Is Yet to Come 1949- designer Ivana Zelnickova Trump. Even decades after their divorce, the ex-couple can be seen in pleasant conversation at public gatherings, have raised their mutual children jointly, and neither of their reputations was harmed by the stigma of divorce.

  • POTUS-17 Reconstruction 1808-1875 Andrew Johnson enjoyed a 50-year marriage to Eliza McCardle. They married when he was 18 and she was 16. Although Eliza was often ill and by personality the retiring type, she coached him in literacy and numeracy skills, encouraged his oratorical instincts, and offered her political intuitions to which he wisely listened.

Zukra-1 whether masculine or feminine in gender orientation = especially attractive to women, who enjoy providing one with sensual experiences including valuable gifts

  • beauty, grace, arts of the mouth = song, history, languages due to Zukra natural lord of bhava-2

Luxurious assets resulting from the physical body's balanced musculature. Zukra-1 typically enjoys an attractive appearance.

  • Among his other fine qualities, POTUS-01 American Revolution 1732-1799 George Washington was said to have been strikingly handsome; a lover of fine wines and dance parties; and one of the wealthiest men of his generation.

  • POTUS-19 Railroad Strike 1822-1893 Rutherford B. Hayes enjoyed a handsome, muscular appearance due to Zukra in lagna of D-1, D-9 , D-10. A civilized fellow overall, he was a strong supporter of humanistic education due to Dhanushya D-9 lagna. It was Rahu-6 and Mangala-4 (aggressive defense of settlement) that brought him into numerous battles, but fighting never caused a disfiguring injury.

Naturally, these traits are modified when additional graha occupy the lagna.

Attracted to one's own beauty. Can be a bit narcissistic, but in a sweet (Zukra) way.

  • A portion of one's money wealth is magnetically attracted into the life via wearing and producing aesthetically-designed costumes, styling and modeling a lovely body, and looking handsome in the flesh.

Likes to be the center of attention, likes to be watched, photographed, admired, and talked about. Natural talent for balancing and re-balancing relationships and for creating an aesthetic environment around one's own person.

Other graha in bhava-1 will adjust the effects of sweets-seeking Zukra.

  • POTUS-43 Decision Points 1946- George W. Bush = Zukra + Shani-yuti-Budha = appearance = a plain (Shani) but pleasant (Zukra) and talkative (Budha) fellow

  • TM 1917-2008 Maharishi Mahesh Yogi + Surya-yuti-Rahu = charismatic (Surya) and highly ambitious (Rahu) with a bright, attractive personality

Characteristics of the Environment where one may meets the life-partner(s)

  • athletic events, muscularity

  • competition, racing

  • movement

  • body-centered activity, fashion modeling, dance

  • birth, innovation, primacy

  • cult of personality

  • warriorship, hunting

  • blood, flesh

  • pursuit, conquest, domination

Often, a husband meets the life-partner (Zukra) in a setting characterized as on his own initiative, via being attracted to her fleshly appearance. There may be no context of introduction by a third party.

For radical Makara-Draco lagna, Makara-Chandra-lagna, radical Kumbha lagna, and Kumbha-Chandra-lagna, Zukra is a Yogakaraka. Husband nativities with these prominent lagna may be blessed with a remarkably beneficial wife-figure.

In both husbandly and wifely Nativities, if one lacks conscious awareness of one's spiritual true self, Zukra-1 can indicate narcissistic utility of flattery via the life-partners.

In this unfortunate case, one's definition of self is strictly social-material, and Zukra-1 * especially masculine * may select a spouse who provides an attractive and flattering mirror for the Self, rather than an equal participating partner.

Generally, Zukra-1 in a husbandly nativity shows a wife who strengthens the identity, is a peer advisor, and provides cherished companionship.

  • POTUS-43 Decision Points 1946- George W. Bush lifepartner Laura Welch Bush was not an athlete, warrior, or model. LWB was a school librarian. GWB's Zukra-1 = dominated by Shani-yuti-Budha, while his Budha enjoys parivartamsha with lagnesha Chandra. The Chandra-Budha exchange helps to define the partner's role. GWB's Zukra-1 endures a highly complex situation. Much is demanded of this spouse. Zukra = GWB's bandesha-4 = schoolteachers. The couple is said to have met at a backyard (4) outdoor party at the home (Chandra) of friends = Zukra vriddhi-pati-11. Regarding their first meeting and quick wedding, LWB has mentioned that it was remarkable how many elements of their lives fit together. Presumably something in her style of movement (Zukra-1) triggered GWB's recognition that this person was his wife-for-life.

  • Future POTUS-42 My Life 1946- Bill Clinton * Kuja-yuti-Zukra-nichha-1 met his future wife POTUS-pair-42 + USA Secy State 1947- Hillary Clinton in a library (Zukra-1 rules 2) = Yale Law library. As a partnership, the Clinton marriage has been actively involved in finance, values narratives.
